Kafka on the shore was the first Murakami I ever read. Such an amazing book made even weirder by the fact that I had just moved to Taiwan at that time. Made the whole experience even more surreal. I worship Twine Peaks and pretty much anything Lynch has ever done. But wow. Lux -Pain. I remember that game! Really need to revisit that. 

Something I really want to pilfer from for this jam is Southern Gothic. That made the first True Detective for me. Could go very well with a bit of Angel Heart. 

I have to watch Mulholland Drive one of these days, since that's another noir work by him outside Twin Peaks.  Yeah Lux-Pain has become an object of nostalgia these days to a point where ppl are calling it one of the best DS games. and i was like... it's a cool concept but localization killed it and it was executed a little awkward.... so that's a tiny bit of a stretch but it's still a decent game.  

i never watched True Detective but would love to esp with Mahershala Ali being in it. Southern Gothic is a total aesthetic to me and I've had some twine games that tried to imitate it... badly lol.


If you like Southern Gothic then you neeeeeeeeeeeed to watch True Detective season 1. It was fantastic. The pessimistic philosophy stuff was also incredibly intriguing. though I didn't know it was called that at the time. I'm so excited for season 2 because they've gone back to what made it great in the first place and I can't wait to see how Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff act this out. (not that I can remember seeing Dorff in anything since Blade :/ )

I don't remember much about Lux-Pain to be honest, except that it didn't grab me. But that's not important. Stop reading this. Right now. Drop everything. Ignore everyone you pass. Go home. Watch Mulholland Drive!
