Audioccult Vol. 75: Watching The Show

Words by Daniel Jones

Light a candle. Draw the required sigils. Now, raise your arms above your head and slowly, gently, exhale your soul. You won’t need it here. This is Audioccult, and it’s time to get low. Illustration: SHALTMIRA

 

Have you seen the show? The last one? It was <SPOILER ALERT> amazing. After so many seasons of getting to know this character, to laugh and love with him, this is probably the defining moment of his whole legacy. Wow. What a triumph for the creator. I don’t want to be yet another voice beating my buff, brawny, bulk and bellowing !!!BEST SHOW EVER!!!, but based on this one alone I think we have enough legal basis to remove all other shows from rotation. When he looked back on to previous actions over the course of the series, you could really see how many souls had gone in to the making of this juggernaut. I loved the show.

 

 

It was a real thrill ride watching the actions that each character performed. There were definitely some surprises! When the first one happened, I was surprised; no doubt, but I also nodded because I remembered some of the clues that had suggested the events now taking place would happen. Maybe not everyone would notice these things, BUT I DID. The final minutes of the show really proved what a masterpiece it really is, though I also think that the portion leading up to those minutes was stunning as well (if not more so). I’m going to die, I loved the show. When the season started, I knew it was going to be something special. “He has to do something really good with this season,” I thought, “Or everyone will be unhappy.” Now nobody is unhappy; not about the show. The show is a success.

I have seared elements of the show’s Truth into my flesh, making myself a living coda to the glories and ecstasies that await in its infinitely skilled directing, writing and acting. The cameras flash. The bodies move. We know the ending. It’s the greatest. Thank you, Rick Owens. ~
