Today’s Shirt.Woot shows us that even cephalopods have off days. I sure hope this guy doesn’t have a meeting today, because I hear Corporate is looking for any excuse to lay people off.
This shirt (Kelly Green in a variety of Mens, Womens, and Kids sizes) is $10, today only, while supplies last. As far as I can tell, most Woot designs are re-offered later for about $15, but jump on it now if you want to the cheap price. Buy it NOW (Wed., March 16) from Shirt.Woot!

I see your Octopus with a Moustache, and I raise you Bearded Squid Attack!
This shirt, which obviously depicts some kind of primordial squid god (maybe Cthulhu’s dad?), is the work of graphic designer Lloyd Eugene Winter IV. It is available for actual purchase at Tender Loving Empire. It is printed with non-toxic, water-based ink in Silver, on Heathered Charcoal American Apparel track shirt (“the coziest shirt around”). Both Guys and Gals shirts will run you a cool $24.

If you are reading this blog, you already know that cephalopods are awesome…and why they are awesome. (And that is why YOU are awesome!) However, it is always nice when someone, such as BoingBoing contributor Maggie Koerth-Baker, expertly summarizes the amazing features of our squishy friends. This pithy video is the short version of “Those Fabulous Octopus Brains,” a 30 min presentation she gave last August for a University of New Mexico IGERT symposium.
If you want to see the original full-length presentation, you can find it here.
I know I’ve let this blog languish a bit recently, and I thank you for sticking with me. Over the past few months I have collected literally hundreds of links to cool examples of cephalopod art, photography, and miscellaneous awesomeness. Over the next week or so, I plan to flood your RSS reader with a veritable swarm of new posts (although I guess “shoal” might be a more biologically apt term). I also haven’t forgotten about the Architeuthis Across America project…I just need to get my house in order first.

It is the solstice tonight, which means, of course, that it is also Cephalopodmas! This blog has been woefully neglegted as of late, yet the sprit of the season still courses through my lazy ass. Maybe Cthulhu Claus will fill my stocking with extra time that I can use for blogging! I also wouldn’t mind an iPad…
