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"
There’s been so much written in the wake of Julee Cruise’s passing that I feel quite superfluous, but it’s amazing how many people are saying the same things that I’m feeling. It’s made me feel the connections that exist within this fan community more and more; I started to see the strings that connect us […]Read more "A Tribute to Julee Cruise"
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.

Hey everyone, As you may or may not know, back in January I completed my ‘What the Haiku’ challenge of doing a Twin Peaks related haiku every day for a year and putting them on YouTube. Well, I’ve brought them out of the notes section of my phone (in case I sit in a paddling pool with […]Read more "What the Haiku! – The Complete Collection"
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"
I wanted to do something based on the interrogation scene where Evil Coop is visited by Gordon, Tammy and Albert. It’s a scene that makes my skin crawl, brilliantly played by all concerned.
