It's the Golden Bough. The King is ritually murdered by his successor.

Darth Vader loses the love of his life, severely burned and disfigured and lives the rest of his life in agonising pain, but it's better than looking that, so I'll say Darth Vader.

episode 3 was on the telly a last year and i put it on while i was cooking just for a bit of background but before i knew it i was engrossed in his character ark. i was aching for him. over encumbered by responsibility and naivite and promise. i was suffering with him every step of the way.

only time i had something similar was in rambo 4 when he's shooting all the asian fellas and you realise that's all he can ever be. no matter what he intends to do life will always lead him down this dark path.

He just wanted to be a snake handler in Thailand, but he couldn't because he's Rambo.

Is this about anti-Oedipus?

It's from his response to Michel Cressole in 1973.

But I suppose the main way I coped with [being "more or less bludgeoned to death with the history of philosophy"] at the time was to see the history of philosophy as a sort of buggery or (it comes to the same thing) immaculate conception. I saw myself as taking an author from behind and giving him a child that would be his own offspring, yet monstrous. It was really important for it to be his own child, because the author had to actually say all I had him saying. But the child was bound to be monstrous too, because it resulted from all sorts of shifting, slipping, dislocations, and hidden emissions that I really enjoyed.

This was a big theme of that Friedkin film I watched last night, although it was ultimately the master who killed the student.

Without wanting to sound too 50 shades of grey, I could really use a master

And ideally they'd tie me up and electrify my balls
