Re: The Tremonds

I've always thought of the grandson as Lynch, the magician. That's a very simple reading. Obviously it can be more complex and less literal than that, but I think that's a big element. I mean, both grandsons look like Lynch, and seem to be styled after Lynch.

Re: Twin Peaks on You Tube

Merry Christmas from Twin Peaks Archive: d2cIu-DQCCM Cool. You know what's interesting, I don't think Coop is ever shown drinking alcohol on the show. He sometimes has a drink in front of him, but he never drinks it. One scene where he's sitting at the Roadhouse bar, he picks it up and puts it down...

Re: TP Ugly Sweater Contest

This is funny, but some of them aren't that bad. What surprised me was that you didn't have James' car-fixing sweater. "Hey, I'm gonna go work on this old car and get all greasy, I think I'll put in this poofy sweater!" You mentioned Leo's looking like the Owl Cave Ring (I'd say it looks l...

Re: Part 3 of Journey Through Twin Peaks: The Whole Damned T

I have to say you have certainly done a fantastic job with these installments, a true labor of love. And they are just so much fun to watch. The amount of care in the outstanding edit is well, outstanding. Pro work, and in case it hasn't been mentioned, the voice-over work is also very well done, p...

Re: Part 2 of Journey Through Twin Peaks: The Center Cannot

I would probably have less luck with the CBS lawyer on that front haha... Obviously youtube is not an option. Of course there's always the joy of a more personal project shared privately with a small circle die-hard fans. I can dream, can't I? I'd try it myself, but I've got no video editing experi...

Re: Part 2 of Journey Through Twin Peaks: The Center Cannot

"Chapter 14 will premiere within the next few"? Minutes? Decades? Don't leave us hangin'. Watching this chapter I again find myself longing to see a fanedit of season two's rough patch. I know a man who's up to the job... :D What a spectacular project it would be leading up to the 2016 sea...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

The creative impulse on the part of a fan is certainly understandable, sure. What I don't track with is saying they have to officially reedit the show on Showtime or for re-release. That is never going to happen, and shouldn't IMO - the original show is indelible in the public consciousness, warts ...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

Personally, I find the talk of reediting season 2 more cringeworthy than adding the "May The Giant Be With You" titles. I find all the second guessing of Lynch's creative thought processes in this vein to betray a lack of understanding about Lynch's work from the time period People have a...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

I wonder if Showtime will show the original series in its correct aspect ratio, or if they will crop off the top and bottom to fit the widescreen? I think it's almost certain that it will be shown in its original aspect ratio without cropping, as that's simply how the shots were framed for aestheti...

Where can I find this chart, Jasper? http://i1198.photobucket.com/albums/aa453/JasperArmstrong/Twin_Peaks_Guide_main.jpg Here you are. It's very blunt, sorting episodes into three categories. Obviously there's quality variation within each category, but it's meant to reflect general views, and anyt...

Re: Twin Peaks: Season Three confirmed for 2016 on Showtime

It's funny, I had this same concern. Then again it seems like there's enough of a "support system" for it now with social media and all the writing out there about it (I think it was Jasper who also made that very helpful chart). Jasper's chart is an excellent one. I think everyone with a...

Re: The Owl Cave Ring - thematic significance

The Vedas (…) are a large body of texts originating in ancient India. Composed in Vedic Sanskrit, the texts constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. Hindus consider the Vedas to be apauruseya ("not of human agency"). They are supposed to ha...

Re: Favorite episodes (and directors) of Twin Peaks

Agreed about Ep. 14. The ending is spectacular but the whole thing is just superbly executed. I love the way Lynch brings pathos and style to even the least interesting subplots: Nadine and Bobby/Shelly/Leo have never been more compelling or atmospheric. When Lynch directs Nadine and Mike in the di...

Re: Animals

Yes, the Angriest Dog in the World is absolutely key if we're talking about Lynch and canines.

Speaking of dogs, Leland/BOB howls like a dog in his jail cell when he's captured, and otherwise behaves like a mad dog who's been caged. Fantastic performance by Ray Wise. He sells it and then some.
