Vanity Fair suggests Season 2 might be leading to a Bohemian Grove plot, the only thing in the article that seems plausible to me is the Guerneville reference. That city is only on the map for 3 reasons, huge tucked away isolated gay community, giant hippy contingent and bohemian grove.

Would the set the stage for a tense single take 10 minute sneaking in scene, culminating with Colin Farrell watching Rumsfeld and Cheney urinate into the bushes uncomfortably close to one another

I've enjoyed this season so far. It's not as good as the first one, but not as horrible as some are saying. I don't know if people expected it to be the same as the first one, but this seems to go for a different vibe. The existential dread is still there, but now in an urban environment. The characters are more broken and I think having so many main characters is also causing a different dynamic than the duo of Cohle & Hart did. And that might be what is off-putting people who expected more of the same as season one.

That's a pretty good articulation of my thoughts. Especially the characters being all broken.

 

Oh and looks like the gay is strong in pretty boy.

if they decide to go there it could be the first fictional depiction of it since this piece of shit

 

 

 

Aren't you forgetting this one http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2330322/

 

yes, and i forgot teddy bear's picnic didn't actually call it bohemian grove either. In the newest episode they dropped another possible hint about 'parties' with prostitutes 'up north' , and in california lingo someone from LA wouldn't describe san francisco or say oakland as 'up north' they would say the bay area, this is again another reference to upper northern california . in a way the whole theme would fit perfectly with season 1. for those who don't know about the yearly event at bohemian grove. they perform a mock human sacrifice ritual/play in front of a giant stone owl. at various points media has exposed possible exotic/expensive prostitute groups being flown in including gay porn stars.

alex jones put his name on the map by sneaking in and filming this ritual, unfortunately because he exaggerated what it was so much its hard for people to take the subject seriously since most of the shit out there about it is NWO satanic conspiracy land

 

also Bohemian grove is legendary for bringing more artistic old school hippy elites in the bay area together with more conservative / corporate types. For example Alexander / Sasha shulgin famously was a member of the grove and even played in their orchestra, an orchestra probably watched many times by other members including Henry Kissinger, George W Bush and Ted turner. Harry Shear was also a member of the grove which is why he probably made that sort of dumb movie about it

 

weird but interesting rant about Shulgin and his associations with the Bohemian club

 

 

 

 

Strange Bedfellows

 

One of the great chemists of our time, Shulgin has received accolades from professional peers, government agencies and the psychedelic underground. Nobel Prize winner Kary Mullis says that Shulgin single-handedly tried to chart out whole areas of compounds. This represents a formidable goal, as chemists often spend years looking into one class of compounds or one compound alone.

 

In his youth, Shulgin consorted with. Dow Chemical, Edgewood Arsenal, the FBI, the CIA, even the NSA. In later life, Dr. Alexander Shulgin became a member of the notorious globalist neo-controller Bohemian Club and Bohemian Grove and has proudly fictionalized them as “The Owl Club” in his books TIHKAL and PIHKAL, where he appears pseudonymously as the character Dr. Shura Borodin.

 

In chapter 11 of PIHKAL, Sasha Shulgin recounts his introduction into The Owl Club:

 

One evening in the late 1950’s, I was invited to a musical soiree at an old comfortable home in the Berkeley Hills. I brought my viola with me... The only person I can remember from that evening was a handsome, proper gentleman with a small grey moustache and the residues of an English accent. During coffee, after the music was over, he struck up a conversation.

 

He asked me if I had ever heard of The Owl Club in San Francisco? I had not, so he began painting a picture of a rather fascinating group, with many interests in all sorts of art, drama and music. He mentioned that there was need for a viola player, and would I be interested in sitting in for a couple of evenings? ... The Club proved to be a group of gentlemen from a broad array of political and professional backgrounds, leaning somewhat toward the political right and the well-to-do. ... At my first evening at the Club... Andrew was appointed my Pater Familias ...” - PIHKAL, pp. 60-65

 

Psychonaut or Cryptocrat?

 

But this was just the introduction. Dr. Shulgin was not quite in bed with the Bohemian Club. Not yet. What cemented the Bohemian deal was an unexpected subpoena sent to Sasha on behalf of Claude Pepper’s “The House Committee On Crime In America.” This famous witch-hunt of the times was concerned with criminal cartels, illegal drug masterminds and those suspected of being their teachers. According to his autobiography, when Sasha entered the Court House the Witch-finder General scowled, “How can you call yourself a scientist” he demanded, “and do the type of work you do?”

 

Under oath Dr. Ecstasy was “raked over the coals.” Criminal associations were introduced into testimony, including Sasha’s alleged clandestine association with Owsley Stanley, the infamous LSD chemist who made “Orange Sunshine” LSD. Further, Sasha had once been approached to set up and run an illegal lab in Jamaica, being offered “six million dollars” according to his fictional PIHKAL. Even within the government, whether he was a “good guy” or “bad guy” depended on relative point of view.

 

Through the Looking Glass

 

A timely invitation pulled Sasha back towards the mysterious “Owl Club” (Bohemian Club) to play more viola. Life, like music, owes quite a lot to timing. Then again, The Owl Masters might simply have been watching over a fledgling, providing shelter from a storm. “Stay in our good company”, they might have said. “We live in a world beyond Claude Pepper.”

Jon Ronson talked at length about that on a J.R.E podcast not long ago, when he'd snuck into bohemian grove that same year. His whole take on the thing might be far less entertaining than Alex's, but I liked some of his thoughts on the twisted psychology behind it

the funniest part is that Ronson was taking an outsider analytical approach, he didn't admit he snuck in with alex until many years later out of fear that the people in Bohemian Grove could actually fuck up his life (he didn't spell it out this way but thats basically why he hid it)

 

I fucking love the Ronson video special with Alex Jones, its one of the most interesting takes on AJ i've seen short of the indie film 'new world order' you basically get to see how he is when he's not in that performative mode, and even while hes being normal he's still operating on a level of mania thats very interesting to watch. The part at the very end of the special where AJ is driving and not looking at the road is amazing he yells at ronson "YOU CAN NERVE GAS US ALL DAY, WERE READY TO ROCK" ending with the line "IM GONNA SHOVE A GUN IN THEIR MOUTH TO SEE HOW THEY LIKE IT CAUSE IM FREE!!"

 

fast forward to about 47:00 in for this line

 

 

but the whole thing is worth watching, really good shit imo

yeah, this shit has nothing to do with bohemian grove, which is cheesy as fuck, if they go anywhere weird with this it'll be a lot darker.


was a pretty shit episode until the last 10 minutes, hopefully their thumbs will remain out of their collective asses for the remaining episodes.

im guessing the last four ep's will hone in on the bird-dude, chessani and casper's high-society sex parties, possible rituals. i'm guessing there's some creep shit happening in them redwoods "up north" (quoted: bezzerides sister) so i'm kinda buying into all this bohemian grove talk, not explicitly that, but something similar...

Everyone seems to hate him but I find him to be the most interesting character this season. I think he's gonna end up being the one pushing to solve the murder investigation hardest after the assorted city officials & police depts attempt to bury it.

I think the writing is more to blame than anything else. Vaughn has grown on me in this role, I've stopped expecting him to make a deadpan wisecrack. But some of the lines the writers have come up with this season have been enough to make apoplectic.

Yeah the writing has been poor. Each episode i watch i hope the script will get better, i dunno, i appreciate they're trying to do something different so I'm not turning my back on it at all :music: The acting has been awesome with Farrell as the (un)predictable burn out, Vaughn doing boring (outside fluff comedy) and Kitsch & McAdams masking their sexual perversions until the finale.

It's unpredictable, so I reserve judgement.
