Mad Men is ending, and while the show's opening credits are inseparable from RJD2's haunting theme, there was a time when that beat was known only as "A Beautiful Mine," by RJD2 and rapper Aceyalone.
Matthew Weiner originally wanted a Beck song to play as the show's opening theme, but the singer turned down every offer from the show's producers. Weiner was driving and listening to NPR one day when he heard "A Beautiful Mine" played as segue music between two stories and was immediately struck by it, though the version that ultimately was used was so different from the original that RJD2 didn't recognize it when he first heard it. He's probably okay with it now, though.

"This is awesome, and I'm at a loss for words," True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga said while accepting the Emmy award for outstanding directing Monday night.
He was talking about his win, but he might have unintentionally been speaking for the thousands of viewers and fans of the show who never knew that Fukunaga was, well, so good-looking. Since the world was introduced to the man behind True Detective, the Internet has been positively awash with paeans to Fukunaga – including the jaw-dropping admission that he got his start working on the music video for Destiny Child's "Survivor," giving the night a much-needed dose of Beyoncé.
Here are five things you probably didn't know about everyone's new favorite half-Swedish, half-Japanese director with man-braids.

Much of True Detective's appeal is based on Matthew McConaughey's riveting performance as (true) Detective Rustin Cohle and the loopy, dark cop-buddy chemistry he summoned with real-life pal Woody Harrelson, to say nothing of Nic Pizzolatto's dense, allusion-heavy dialogue.
But the show's visual style deserves a big shout-out as well, and it's for a combination of all of those reasons that it deserves to walk home with the Emmy for best drama.
Pizzolatto and director Cary Fukunaga sketched a compelling, singular vision of Louisiana (and Texas) for the show: Inspired by photographer Richard Misrach's work documenting Louisiana's "Chemical Corridor," Petrochemical America, they developed a stark, bleached look for the show.

Though Woody Harrelson's Martin Hart spent much of True Detective being a straight man to Matthew McConaughey's Rustin Cohle and doling out droll reaction lines like, "Stop saying odd s---," Harrelson wasn't just comic relief.

Yield to the Era of McConaughey. You thought it was over with his Oscar win, didn't you? Well, you thought wrong. It's just getting started.
McConaughey's role as the masculinely-named (true) Detective Rusin Cohle doubled-down on the grimness of his appearances in films like The Paperboy and Killer Joe, and added a dose of surreal, philosophical weirdness, thanks to showrunner Nic Pizzolatto's riffs on religion, nihilism and the psychosphere.
