Happy Birthday Twin Peaks

20 years old.  Awesome!  Check here for an article looking at its impact on TV, as well as tributes from stars and crew.

I remember this breaking all over SABC.  Monday nights were legendary …creep upstairs, spooky theme music fills the house (Kork.E shivers in her room by nervous proxy), the episode freaks you out, turn off all lights with Killer BOB emblazoned in mind…go downstairs to room, unscrew burglar guard of window, sneak out back for a smoke near the trees…aaargh, the damn trees!  Mist lying low over the whole scene.  Fastest cigarettes I ever smoked!  Delicious mind-fuck.  Awesome!

Started rewatching the whole shebang over xmas holidays…must take up the slack and watch to the end…

Album of the Year…

…that never came out.  This according to GQ.  I remember there being a lot of buzz about this a while back – and why not?  David Lynch teaming up with Brian “Dangermouse” Burton, and Mark Linkous from Sparklehorse?  Hell, yeah!

But it was never released – some tangle up with the record label.  It’s around though – you can track it down if you want.  Dark Night of the Soul is a brooding, eclectic, twilight fascination.  Would love to get me hands on the book of David Lynch photos too.  Ah well…the music for now’ll have to do.  Check it.

She’s called The Jack

This is fairly disturbing.  Coming in at #2 on the Mashed in Plastic playlist this little mash-up of Badalamenti’s The Pink Room and AC/DC’s The Jack.  Remember tittering at this as a young pubescent kid?  Well titter no more.  In the hands of these guys, and spliced with Twin Peaks footage, it becomes downright nasty.  Gets in your head and twists it some.  I was watching/listening on headphones, and swear I had to look over my shoulder a few times…who’s there?…did I lock the freaking door?!?…in other words, really really good.

WARNING: for all those out there who haven’t watched Twin Peaks or Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and still puzzle over “Who killed Laura Palmer?”, this reveals all.  Don’t watch it yet.  Get out there and buy/rent/steal the Definitive Gold Box Set and get busy you slackers!  TV was never the same after this.  Truly.
