I have only two problems with last night’s finale of True Detective, and they are these:
- I don’t mind the lack of twist. Nic Pizzolatto said in at least one interview that I read that the show is not a whodunnit. But I would like some more insight into the psychological underpinnings of the villain’s vast labyrinth of insanity, into the symbols and mythology that guided much of the show’s incredibly creepy crime conspiracy. Does The King in Yellowexist in this world and did the villain(s) pull their own references to the black stars and Yellow King and Carcosa from the text, or is the repeated mention and integration of these symbols an homage, or are they just signs and guideposts to take us along the same path as Chambers’ short stories about The King In Yellow? I just want more. Also I just want to know more about the origins of the whole horrifying pagan rite thing—more history, more insight as to what they were trying to accomplish it? Maybe it’s crazy to expect madmen to have goals, but call me curious, I want to know. Edited to add: This helped a little.
- Rust, it is like SURVIVING PSYCHOPATHS 101 not to remove a knife from a wound. Although, I guess you could make the case that he’s trying to bleed out and die, which maybe he is. But, like, dude, leave that thing right where it is until help arrives (then let them remove it).
Otherwise, pretty great.
Did you hear the great news? The film rights to Andrew Smith’s Grasshopper Jungle just sold! How soon can we get our tickets?
This gif is everything to me right now. As is the image Deadline used in their film rights announcement, and the word “shag-happy.”

These two are everything. I realized a few weeks ago that I’m going to be in Florida for my friend Kim’s wedding when this movie comes out, so I won’t be able to see it opening day, but because I donated to the Kickstarter campaign I think I get the link to download the movie file that same day. Now how am I going to sneak away from Jenny and Cambria for an hour and a half to watch it? Should I steal the car and “get lost” trying to get back to the hotel? I’ll have to remember to bring my laptop.
