November 30th 2001Reason for Twin Peaks Box Set Delay

The Digital Bits is reporting in their Rumor Mill that the reason for the delay on the Twin Peaks Box set from December 4th to the 18th is because of high demand issues.  Mulholland Drive on is reporting that Mulholland Drive will be released on Video on March 12th. Not sure where they got their information, or if this also means the DVD will be out on this date, but just thought I would mention it. 

November 19th 2001Rebekah Del Rio TonightThe show was just awesome. If you thought seeing Rebekah on the big screen was something, just wait till you see her live. “Llorando” live was just incredible.

A Message from Eli Roth Hello Everyone, As you all know, “Mulholland Drive” opens today in select cities around the United States, and nationwide next week.  I am making a gift for David that will be from all of us.  I want to make a collage using photographs of all the theaters around the world where “Mulholland Drive” is playing.  Ideally, if lines are long and the signs say “Sold Out” that would make him the happiest, but I think there will be something very special about actually seeing what it looks like to have David’s film playing around the globe.  I know it will mean a great deal to him. I am in North Carolina until December, so until then please send any photos you have to:  Eli Roth c/o Down Home Entertainment 1014 Mill Avenue Suite 195 High Point, N.C.  27260  For those of you around the globe who have to wait until MD opens in your country, I will have a different address to send photos to at the end of November.  Please note that I cannot accept any script submissions, ideas, or videotapes at this time, only the photographs that will be incorporated into the collage.  Also, I would like to keep this a secret and give it to David as a surprise, so please be aware of that if you are posting on his website or are in one of his chatrooms.  Please not that this is NOT the address where you will send the videotapes.  David is swamped right now with the release of M.D. and the launch of his website.  He is so excited to do this world wide video project, and he needs time to think everything through and map it all out.  He appreciates your enthusiasm, and your patience.  I will have a special address for your tape. Thank you! Best regards,  Eli Roth October 11thGo See Mulholland Drive Tomorrow!Here is a complete listing of theaters that Mulholland Drive will be playing in tomorrow. Here is a listing for the 19th as well. I’ll be at the one in Westwood tomorrow night. See you there.

Twin Peaks Series DVD Available for Pre-OrderAs you may have noticed, the Twin Peaks Series is now available for pre-order. However, AmazonCDNow, and Barnes and Noble all have different prices as well as descriptions. The “3-Pack or 4-Pack” DVD offered by CDNow and Barnes and Noble is considerably less, and is supposed to be produced by Republic Pictures, which makes it even more confusing. Im currently waiting on Artisan to send me their official press release, however, from what I understand, they are all one and the same.

Mulholland Drive and David NewsMulholland Drive has been chosen to be the Centerpiece of this years New York Film Festival. The film will be shown on October 6th. Mulholland Drive will then have a limited theatrical release in major cities on October 12th. Expect a wider release on October 19th. David should be up and running hopefully by the end of September to coincide with the release of Mulholland Drive.   

August 8th 2001Twin Peaks Series to be Released Dec. 4th w/ DTSHey all. I just about passed out when I checked out the In Production Charts on the Video Business site. As I usually check it daily to see if there are any updates on any upcoming Lynch DVD’s, I was shocked to say the least that they now have a release date of December 4th for the Twin Peaks: First Season from Artisan. One thing to note that they also mention it will include DTS sound (first TV series to be converted to DTS) … (Please oh please let them have included a separate music only audio track.)  And finally, just so you can see it with your own eyes, check out the listing by clicking here. Also, a partial list of the specs can be found on my FAQ page. Special thanks to Peter at for getting additional details on my scoop.   

August 3rd 2001 Exclusive Interview Coming Soon will be conducting an exclusive interview with Chief Engineer John Neff. For those of you not familiar with Mr. Neff, he is David Lynch’s Chief Engineer who has worked with him on many projects since 1997. Most recently he has completed the theatrical mix of Mulholland Drive and a new 5.1 remix of Blue Velvet for an upcoming DVD release and archival film storage. Check out this great article on Digidesign’s site. Click here to read more about this upcoming interview and to get one of your questions answered by Mr. Neff. Twin Peaks Series on DVD Update ?!Artisan recently sent out a brochure to Video Business Subscribers on their upcoming titles for the rest of this year as well as next year. In this, they mention the Twin Peaks Series Special Edition DVD to be coming “next year”. This conflicts from what my source at Artisan has told me about the boxed set being released in November. Either way, it is finally on it’s way, as at last weeks San Diego Comic Convention, DVD Producer Mark Rance officially announced that he is in the process of working on the DVD set as we speak. To read the mention check out the transcript from the Convention over at the Digital Bits (about 3/4 of the way down) by clicking here. We should expect lots of recent interview footage to be included on this release.

Region 0 Pilot DVD Looks LegitThere has been much debate lately as to whether or not the mysterious Catalyst Logic Twin Peaks: Pilot is legit or not. A 1998 article in Asia Biz Tech wrote this:

Ritek Inc. and Catalyst Logic Co., Ltd. obtained authorization from Orion Network Systems Inc., United Artists Theater Group and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. (MGM) for DVD production and distribution in Taiwan. This follows the success of InfoDisc Technology Co. Ltd. in obtaining authorization from Warner Advanced Multimedia Operations to produce DVD for Warner Brothers Records. 

That allows Ritek and Catalyst Logic to join CMC Magnetics Corp., Prodisc Technology Inc. and InfoDisc to compete for the distribution and production rights for the eight largest film makers in the United States.
