If the first four parts of Cameron Cloutier’s extension of Twin Peaks mythology were great, this fifth visit to the world both wondrous and strange is simply sublime. It starts with familiar strobe effects, disconcerting slash cuts from one image to the next and a series of uncomfortable, awkward close ups that thrust us into […]Read more "Queen of Hearts – Act V review and thoughts"
Hi there, I’m just checking in to offer a few of my thoughts on Act IV of Cameron Cloutier’s Twin Peaks fan film, Queen of Hearts. And also to try to get “Groove is in the Heart” out of my head. This one took us to a number of places and in a number of […]Read more "Queen of Hearts – Act IV review – (Spoiler Alert)"
Hi everyone, It has been quite a while, hasn’t it? Thankfully, inspiration is never as far away as one would think when it comes to the world of Twin Peaks. There is always someone on hand to shift your perspective and make you see things a slightly different way. Usually for me, that inspiration is […]Read more "Getting to Know You – a haiku sequence"

I haven’t written anything TP related since the sad passing of Peggy Lipton earlier in the year but I had an urge to go into the dark woods once more and do some backwards […]Read more "What the Haiku – Twin Peaks – New Year Special"

The filming of Queen of Hearts is well underway and, […]Read more "Queen of Hearts update November 2019"
So, my fifth Twin Peaks UK Festival has come to an end. I had two regrets when I left, Firstly, I regretted that it was over at all. Secondly, I regretted not taking my decent camera with me this year. I trusted my phone, thinking as it was an upgrade on my last one, the […]Read more "Twin Peaks UK Festival 2019 in pictures"
Hey everyone, Passing another milestone tonight: my 300th post on this site. I suppose its fitting that it should be about the same thing I usually waffle on about: Twin Peaks. I didn’t have a blu-ray player when this came out so I never saw The Missing Pieces in its entirety until now; those deleted […]Read more "Tonight’s viewing – The Missing Pieces"
Just thought I’d experiment a little bit with another poetic form: the palindrome. It’s very hard to get it right and to make sure that the second half makes sense.
