Twin Peaks/David Lynch

"Twin Peaks" Returning to TV?

Even the faintest possibility makes me weak with glee:

Last week we ran a piece in which co-creator Mark Frost suggests, rather excitedly, that the prematurely axed ’90s sensation may get its third season after all these years (the “25 years later” thing working in its favour, too). Frost’s quotes, hinting that both the creative’s and network brass may be talking, aren’t the first indication that there’s still life left in the sleepy supernatural-stricken town though. Apparently quite a few cast members, including Catherine E.Coulson (“The Log Lady”), have been contacted about possibly reprising their roles from the spooky soap, should a revisit happen.

Robert Engels, the show’s EP and writer of Fire Walk With Me, told Moviehole that he’s taken a couple of calls in recent years from networks interested in possibly reigniting the Fire Walking-flame, bringing the show back in some shape or fashion.

Oh.
My.
God.
You.
Guys.

UPDATE: Nope.

Should have known that gum I liked wouldn't be coming by in style.


One of the Best Things Ever on the Internet Ever

A long time ago on an internet forum I once frequented, a user posted a video he created. Below is that video. You should watch it because it is one of the best things ever on the internet ever:

If you didn't watch it, you really must. It's short, and if you're going to read any further, it is imperative that you watch the video. Go ahead. I'll wait.

Awesome.

This video is awesome. It's a perfect parody.

(It also captures the auteur David Lynch in rare form, cursing. Despite his films being as black as midnight on a moonless night, filled with weirdness and violence and plenty of shits, damns and fucks, the man himself rarely uses foul language. In fact, if you've ever seen interviews with him he has an Eagle scout, aw shucks demeanor that belies his macabre motion pictures.)

I asked the creator of the video if I could upload it to my YouTube account, I loved it that much. I credited him in the description by his forum handle because he did not want to be identified. He said that I could.

In three years that video has been seen 1,768,366 times. New comments are added daily. I wake up every day to new notifications from YouTube that someone else left a note. It became so popular that reporters began contacting me, wanting to know if I'd talk about the David Lynch/iPhone parody video I'd made.

After correcting those with inquiries, I asked the creator of the video if he wanted to talk to any newspaper or magazine reporters about the piece. He said no. 

Once upon a time I moderated the comments that come in every day until I realized it would be a never-ending task. This video's popularity is going strong, as well it should.

It's one of the best thing ever on the internet ever:


Lynch Mail

david lynch cardShauna kicks so much ass; let me tell you how much. Her friend in Chicago (presumably) sent her a handmade New Year's card with a quote from David Lynch and a stamp(?) of his head on the cover. Shauna told said Chicagoan that I would like a David Lynch card, and so the friend sent me one. It arrived today. I love mail, but I love David Lynch mail even more. Thanks to both Shauna and Shauna's Chicago friend, who makes very nice cards.


Funniest Thing I've Seen In A While

A friend of mine whipped this up on his MacBook after watching extras from David Lynch's Inland Empire. Without further ado, I give you David Lynch on the iPhone:

UPDATE: This video has since been featured on Digg, Gawker, Best Week Ever!, Kottke.org, Gizmodo, Defamer, iFilm and was #16 - Most Linked (Today), #1 - Most Linked (Today) - Comedy, #44 - Most Linked (This Week) - Comedy, #21 - Most Viewed (Today) - Comedy, #59 - Top Favorites (Today), #7 - Top Favorites (Today) - Comedy and #30 - Top Rated (Today) - Comedy on YouTube. Crazy. I wish the creator of this video had a website I could link to.

All hail the internets. I feel like I fell into a little treasure trove of vintage t.v. awesomeness.
