YOU PEOPLE ARE REALLY EXCITED THAT SOME DUDE WORE A BLACK DAHLIA MURDER SHIRT ON EASTBOUND & DOWN
Full confession: I still have not seen any episodes of Eastbound & Down, although people I trust tell me it’s hilarious. What can I say? There are only so many hours in the day and only so much television I can watch. I’ll get it to at some point.
ANYWAY, apparently some random extra in one shot of the most recent episode was wearing a Black Dahlia Murder shirt, and based on the number of e-mails we’ve gotten about it this week, you’d think that the President declared March “Black Dahlia Murder Month” or something. Really all that happened was that either the extra was either allowed to wear his clothes in the scene (not uncommon, especially when extras show up and work more or less for free just for the sake of being in something), or, at best, someone in the costume department happens to either be a BDM fan, or just thought the shirt looked appropriate, and then the editor, for whatever reason, chose to include this reaction shot, instead of any number of other reaction shots. I mean, the excitement-to-actual-news ratio here is totally inappropriate. And I say that as a huge fan of The Black Dahlia Murder. (Remember all those nice things I wrote about drummer Shannon Lucas just two days ago?)
But here’s a screen cap, courtesy of reader Mykee Shaffer, so that if this really gets you SO hot n’ bothered, you can just sit here and fap to the image:
Score one for metal kind-of-but-not-really invading mainstream pop culture!
