Twin Peaks.

Recommended Posts

I've got Mark Frost's book on order, hopefully should get it this week. Not sure if i'll get around to reading it though, that's another matter entirely.

I've also got that Oral Reflections book, i should deffo read that.

 

Watched Blue Velvet the other day for the first time in ages. Dennis Hopper is brilliant. His Frank is well scarier than Bob from Twin Peaks i always thought. Hope there'll be someone like that in the new series, or Mister Eddie from Lost Highway. Or the Mystery Man. And definitely no Windom Earle, he was sh*t.

 

Totally agree about Earle. That whole plotline pissed me off.

Windom Earl was Mark Frost's creation I think? I've read before that Lynch didn't like the character so when he came to direct the final episode he tore up Frost's script and cranked up the horror-fest side of things. Rightfully so, it'd really gone down the pan. Saying that, the first few episodes of series 2 are my favourite of the whole show.

My copy got delivered about an hour ago.  I haven't started it yet, but I have flicked through it, not what I expected at all, looks like it could be a tough read.

I know, I just wanted a novel, or a straight read - not sure I can be arsed with the way it's all cut up etc.

How are you getting on with it ?

 

I've nearly finished, some glaring inconsistencies so far.

 

Still enjoyable, but it is a tough read.

I gave up for a bit. I didn't like the opening section at all. So gave up, but then in a moment of boredom decided to give it another go but instead of starting at the beginning I flicked towards the back and (very much like the Twin Peaks red room) have ended up reading it backwards. I started with some Audrey stuff then went back to the Andrew Packard/Josie section, then the history of Big Ed, Norma, Hank and Nadine. I've now gone back again towards some gold prospectors and scouts.

 

So, enjoying it now, actually. Strangely I'm not a huge fan of all that "soap opera" stuff in the actual series, but I'm finding the book enjoyable. I'll probably swerve all the historical/native American stuff. Might swerve the UFO stuff as well.

Is that what that Frost book does? Try to explain things? I that case I will never read it - the magic of Twin Peaks does not come from explanations. Quite the opposite in fact.

It doesn't try to explain things, certain things that the show left unanswered are kind of concluded, a few gaps are filled in with an eye on the show's return, but if anything the book adds to the mythical feel of the town and leaves quite few questions of its own unanswered.

I see, that doesn't sound so bad then. It is a bit funny how I would have killed for the show to be continued back then, and now that is really happening I'm kind of dreading it.

I think Fire Walk With Me is terribly underrated. Sheryl Lee is sensational in that film, her scene in The Pink Room alone was Oscar worthy imo.

 

Wonderful stuff by Lynch and Badalamenti.

I think it's fantastic. The Blu-ray Twin Peaks boxset has an extra titled 'The Missing Pieces', it contains 90 minutes of extra/deleted scenes from FWWM, a lot are superfluous and it's understandable why they were cut, but there's also some great stuff concerning Laura's mindset leading up to her death. Really recommended.

 

Twin Peaks - The Entire Mystery is only £21.99 on Blu-ray(HMV), I paid around £60 when it was released.

Does anyone want the Gold box of Twin Peaks and Fire Walk With Me On DVD ?

 

Don't want anything for either and I'll even pay the postage, rather it Go to fans than take it to a charity shop

Sold!

 

Wow, what a generous offer. Would be delighted to take them off your hands. Will happily contribute something, pay for postage, donation to a charity?

 

Much appreciated, if they're still available.

I watched the Q2 fan edit of FWWM last week. It's the version where someone has edited in about an hour of the deleted scenes/Missing Pieces. It's amazing! Highly recommend it.

 

I've also got the Northwest Passage - the 5 1/2 hour version of Twin Peaks that just sticks to the Laura Palmer storyline without any of the nonsense. Looking forward to watching it.

Has anyone seen the standalone cut of the pilot for the European market? I have that on VHS somewhere.

 

Spolier alert: It is not very good.

I downloaded it through a torrent - just searched ''FWWM Q2 fan edit'' - it might have been on torrent junk. I stuck it on download overnight and the next morning bingo. Stuck it on a usb stick and played it through my Blu Ray which plays usb. Although the first USB I tried didn't work for some reason, had to use another one.
