Eat gator! Jerk off in the woods! Sweat too much, smell too awfully. Enjoy nature! Curse how it makes your balls smell. Am I talking about my trip to Denver last month? Or am I talking about Red Dead Redemption 2? Why not both, you son of a bitch! Yadda yadda, blah blah. How the fuck are you folks doing? Me? I’m doing a-okay. Sleep late, masturbate. Two of the pillars of my current summer vacation. Life ain’t bad.
I mean, if you can ignore the Arctic melting, and the rise of fascism. But, I have faith you can. Us rot-mouth flesh-bellies have tremendous power to deny forthcoming doom. I imagine that prowess stems from our incessant need to deny our own mortality, and works its way into shuttering our eyes at the very-not-good situation on this planet.
Anyways! Holy fuck, what’s up? Glaze your tits, gaze your eyes, and join me here at Monday Morning Commute.
The impending mortality? The horrors of modern culture?
Why, gloss them over with some distractions. And, share your particular distractions this week!
I’ll go first, fellow meat-bags.
‘Mindhunter’ Season 2 is officially dropping August 16 which I thought we already knew but I guess not or some shit
Somehow, I thought we already knew the official date for Mindhunter season 2. But, I guess not! Prepare yourselves though, it drops in little over a month. August 16.
Mindhunter’s first season was objectively fucking rad. But, the wait for the second has been interminable. Interminable, I say! However, good news. Its release is finally on the horizon.
‘Mindhunter’ and ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ both cast Damon Herriman as Charles Manson. He rocks, but what the fuck?
A bit of an oddity unfurling here. Both David Fincher and Quentin Tarantino have cast Damon Herriman as Charles Manson. Like, I know and love Damon Herriman from his work on Justified. But, one of these projects has to blink. Right?
We already knew that Mindhunter was getting a second season. That alone was cause to fucking celebrate. However, there’s more good news. Fincher himself is returning to the director’s chair for two episodes of the sophomore season, and is bringing other talented directors in as well.
What’s up, fellow denizens of the Space-Ship Omega? How are you doing? I’m aiight, kicking it. I’m aiight, sluggishly tumbling headfirst into the final weekend of the semester. Tumbling, tumbling, tumbling. Skull-meat’s synapses barely firing, as my thickened blood fails to pump all that well.
But, I’m blessed enough to have the weekend off.
Mindhunter fucking owns. A quiet, disturbing, gorgeously shot meditation on the human psyche, and uh, serial killers, I’ve been obsessed with it since Netflix dropped it. I knew that the company had commissioned a second season way back. However, them motherfuckers have officially gone ahead and renewed it. Like, whatever the fuck the difference the difference is there.
This is Monday Morning Commute! The column where we share, oh do we share, the various arts and miscellanies that are looking forward to in a given week. Speaking of this week?
Ohhh, we got ourselves a week, friends.
Ohhh, we got ourselves a panoply of tasty pop culture treats dropping this week, friends.
Well, okay. Not like, that many. But like, the ones that are arriving?
They’re certainly considerable for yours truly. Two follow-ups to a couple of personal favorites. The two of them? They’re enough to grease the rock this week, aid in my pushing of it up the hill.
So let’s get into it. Let us dive in.
Man. If you only knew how much time I burned through looking for a header image for this post. If you only knew how much time I burned through trying to come up with a title for this post. But here I am, folks. Opening up the Weekend Open Bar for one and all.
Now. I’m covered in sweat, lowered in the couch, delayed in showering before this evening’s activities.
Later. I’ll be covering myself in crumbs, lowering myself in the couch, consuming media with Bateman.
You. What are you doing tonight? Saturday? This weekend? What are you playing? Eating? Watching? Reading? Contemplating?
Somehow. It’s time for yet another Weekend Open Bar.
Here’s a little teaser trailer for David Fincher’s Netflix series, Mindhunter. I’ve been sweating the series for a minute at this point, and the snippet does nothing but stoke the flames of, uh, my sweating? Or some shit? Fuck you just watch it.
