The last episode of True Detective airs tonight and I am heartbroken.
—Land of The Bloody Unknown
I could never really dance that well
I can’t raise the flags or ring them bells
But I can shoot my gun down the line towards my home
To the land of the bloody unknown
There is magic all around you, if I do say so myself.
I pretty much never talk about food on social media because the thought of taking a photo of what I’m eating at a restaurant irks me (I couldn’t even manage it for this gem) but if any of you happen to take a trip to Coolangatta/The Gold Coast then I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The staff were incredibly friendly, the food was cosmically delicious, and if you’re a cider fan like me then you won’t be disappointed by their bottle and tap selection. They offer an all day breakfast menu and a dinner menu at exceptionally reasonable prices. If Newcastle had a cafe of this calibre then I don’t think I would eat anywhere else. - The Outcider.

Babby polar bear!
If you haven’t discovered HBO’s True Detective…well, we’re not sure what you’re waiting for. But if you have, surely you’ve noticed the references to The Yellow King, which i09 calls “The One Literary Reference You Must Know to Appreciate True Detective.”
It’s a pretty obscure reference, but luckily we’ve got you covered, thanks to our resident expert on all things weird and scary, S.T. Joshi. Joshi included “The Yellow Sign,” which he calls “perhaps the most horrific story in The King in Yellow” in our anthology American Supernatural Tales (both in black spine paperback and hardcover Penguin Horror edition). A tip of the cap to the creators of the show for digging up such a great story and using it in such an original way!
Goodbye, savings, it was nice knowing you. That being said…eeeeeeeeh Britain is only 4 months away!!!
