second favorite Twin Peaks quote

James in episode 209: "It doesn't matter if we're happy when the whole world goes to hell."

The Good Old Days

I am now on episode 207 of Twin Peaks. One thing I was enjoying in the show is that they don't use computers or cell phones. Laura keeps a written diary, and now there is the hint of a second, secret diary. When the book is shown, it is soft, like a paperback composition book. The police can't call the sheriff's office from their cars (maybe they don't have radios?) - instead they have to drive really fast to get there and deliver their messages.

In episode 206, though, this lack of technology was broken when a guy whipped out what appeared to be a cell phone of the 1990s. Or maybe it was a type of radio phone. When I saw it, the phone shocked me because I had just minutes before been loving the fact that not even Lucy uses a computer to store information. Instead, she uses pencils and paper.

Also, in good old David Lynch fashion, there's always the hope for pure love. James (who is so adorable) was telling Maddy about how this love he has for Donna is like a pure white light, and he's afraid that light won't always be on. Teenagers!

(I can't believe I forgot to tell you.)

I heard, and then saw Tay Zonday, the Chocolate Rain guy, in the parking lot of Menards about a month ago. He was talking on his cell phone and I knew that voice immediately. I scanned and scanned the parking lot. Alas! He appeared, and in plain view, I watched him walk through the sliding double doors. It was definitely a celebrity sighting.

Full of Secrets

Today I came across a book about Twin Peaks. I can't wait to read it cover to cover. We can all read it here!

On another note: For a psychopathology course assignment, I've chosen to create a diagnostic assessment of Audrey. So far, I'm going with histrionic personality disorder.

Laura Palmer's killer

I am more and more suspicious that Donna is Laura Palmer's killer. I've wondered if she wanted James all to herself and/or for other jealousy reasons. Donna definitely has a mysterious side to her that comes out every once in a while (when she visited James in jail, when she delivered the Meals on Wheels, and when she freaked out during the strange song in the living room with James and Maddie, for instance.)

I am definitely creeped out by the grey-haired older man who appears in visions, but I'm not sure he's Laura's killer exactly.


If you are watching Twin Peaks now, who do you suspect?

Books on the iPhone

Yes, I was one of the people who waited in line for an iPhone. It's so amazing! It's something that is really going to change how we live.

One thing I wanted to share was that you can buy electronic books. Ulysses is only 99 cents. Can you believe that? The entire book. In the palm of your hand.


Their summer fiction issue is available. It's fantastic.

Go here.

Who are your favorite Twin Peaks characters?

I'm very intrigued by the duo of James and Donna, Laura's "best friends." Duality is curious to me in this series - many things comes in pairs, everyone leads a double life. Any thoughts about that?

Lucy the receptionist gets me every time with her conversation skills. I'm a sucker for the comic relief.

The log lady still has me riveted but I'm leaning toward "number 10 eccentric" rather than "delusional."

I'm heading into episode 6.

Turismo para escoger

I'd forgotten about a photo shoot I did while working at elsalvador.com until I stumbled across it today on Octo Media.

This is the cover design for a magazine that had an article about tourism in El Salvador.

I'm only halfway through the second episode, but there seems to be a pastry theme in Twin Peaks. Lots of donuts around. And pie - cherry pie and huckleberry pie. There's a scene in episode one where they have a hard time chewing donuts. And the opening scene in episode two shows two characters passionately struggling to chew a baguette. What's with the white bread and the near choking?

hang out with the log lady

In 2004, it was Janet Jackson.
In 2007, it was Prince.
This year, I think we're switching media. Hugo and I seem to be approaching our next duo cult obsession: Twin Peaks episodes, in order.
Feel free to join us: link. However, you can't watch the hour-and-a-half long pilot on cbs.com, and it's really worth starting there. You can Netflix it, though. Do it - the pilot is really informative and great and creepy and bizarre and will make you think about the log lady for days to come.
Log lady.
