I’m here for beautiful graphics, fandom madness and shameless lols.
Enamored with visual aspects of Game of Thrones, Hannibal and Peter Jackson’s movies. Fascinated and often mesmerized by pretty pictures with no regard for their origins. Quite a bit crazy about Person of Interest, SPN, Hobbit and dozens and dozens of fandoms.
The King In Yellow is in there because it’s a story about a story, one that drives people to madness. Everything in True Detective is composed of questionable narratives, inner and outer, from Cohle’s view that identity is just a story we tell ourselves, to the stories about manhood that Hart tells about himself, to the not always truthful story they tell the detectives investigating them. So it made sense – to me, at least — to allude to an external narrative that that is supposed to create insanity, or as I prefer, deranged enlightenment. When I did that, a kind of secondary language began to form in the scripts, where the notion of cosmic horror became a very real part of the environment, at least for those who know Chambers’ work.
