Neko Case and Lana Del Rey have the most amazing voices. Actual songs aside, I could just listen to their voices, forever.

The sky's hungry today.

It's only 77˚F, with the humidity at a mere 55%. It's that low humidity that stokes the sky's appetite.

I managed only 712 words yesterday, but I did finish the fourth section of the story. As it stands, the ms. is 9,165 words long. I have 15,835 to go.

I truly, truly loved the last episode of Season Two of True Detective, and the last few scenes – especially Frank alone in the playa – very nearly brought me to tears. I have no idea what's up with the amount of animosity this season has received, but I suspect it mostly comes down to a) people whining because they didn't get more of Season One and/or b) people who can't keep up with good noir.

Later Taters,
Aunt Beast

Yeah, really looking forward to seeing the new series. Sounds like the writing is as good as Season 1.

I loved this second season of "True Detective." I especially liked the ending.

From what I saw on the Internet (and read in the NYTimes online) a lot of people were really confused by the whole series and didn't seem to follow the action and plot intricacies. I find with HBO I have to turn up the sound loud and listen carefully, because it seems like the audio is difficult to hear. And you can't miss a minute, because so much happens in one episode.

I thought this season delved more into relationships between men and women, whereas last season was more of a "buddies" storyline.
