Long time TP fan from Scotland. Got into TP when it first aired and I was only 16 at the time - it made a profound, lasting impression on my life.

Cooper is my all time hero, example and inspiration, impossible to live up to of course, but points me in the right direction when I forget!

Was a veteran of the alt.tv.twinpeaks usenet group back in the 90s - yes, usenet is ancient internet history. Perhaps only Mr C and Jeffries make use of it now to send coded messages.

Loving the new season - never thought we'd get it. I was frustrated by the Dougie Jones arc at first but I grew into it. Episode 16 was payoff - 100 percent!

I'm so glad we have sites like this, as nobody else I know in real life is in to TP, so it's great to be able to share the experience of the show with likeminded fans.

Fruitcake anyone?

If you go into the Fandom discussion you can find out about one of my projects: a virtual Peaks museum/amusement park in Second Life.

Greetings!

Charlie C. New to the site but not to TP. Any suitable jumping off points, reading lists or ‘read this, then this . . .’?

Seems like a big place to stumble around in.

Hello, all!  Everyone here seems so interesting and cool.  It's great.

My name is Sheva.  37 years old and located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Twin Peaks has been a significant part of my life, for most of my life.

With the help of the world of Peaks, I aim to let a smile be my umbrella and to recognize the things I cannot control.  Looking very forward to taking part in this community!

Hi, I’m Tyson -a long time lurker, 1st time poster, big time Peak Freak. I love this forum and blog! I have a theory that Elizabeth Berkeley in Showgirls (Vegas!) is Annie all grown up.

Oh Jessie, did you learn nothing from that caffeine pills episode?  Before you know it you're on the pole just to support the habit...

Hm. I seem to have been ignorant of, or ignored, this whole section of the forum until today. 

I suppose I will play the introduce yourself game, if anyone is curious to know these things.

My name is Caemeron, and is indeed spelled that way (though the ligature didn't make the birth certificate, I'm afraid). Interestingly, it seems my parents may have made an error here - Cameron is a family name, related to the Scottish Clan, but as far as I can tell, that's always just been spelled as Cameron... Anyway...

I'm a PhD candidate in philosophy (which means I still need to finish and defend my dissertation - let's not talk about that). I live in Brooklyn, and have been in the city for 11 years or so. Before that, I was in Ohio, where I attended Kent State University. I was born in Michigan, in 1980.

I discovered Twin Peaks while I was in college at Kent State. My roommate and his friends were really into FWWM, and so I actually ended up seeing that first. I knew Twin Peaks was a TV show that had been on when I was a kid, but I was pretty much too young for it then, or wasn't aware of it enough to get into it. The first Lynch film I saw was Lost Highway, and I loved it immediately. This was in the theater, when it came out. I couldn't stop thinking about it, for days, and this was a novel experience for me. So, I was getting into Lynch, and my college roommate wanted to watch FWWM, so I was down. I didn't even know at the time that it had been released after the show, although that became pretty apparent since I remembered that "Who killed Laura Palmer?" had been this big cultural question when the show was on. Regardless, I loved it immediately. I was particularly taken in by the weird stuff. So, that was impetus to watch the show.

First, I had to get my hands on it somehow. This wasn't particularly easy at the time. It was a matter of getting VHS tapes. The video stores where I lived had some of them, but were basically insufficient. I believe they were out of print by this time, as well. So, we took to this fairly new thing called eBay, and ended up with a complete set of VHS tapes, then engaged in an old school binge. As I recall, one of my friends who had already seen it advised me to fast forward through every James scene in the second season after he left town, and I did that the first time I watched the show. But I loved it so much I basically proceeded to make everyone I knew watch it as well, and I would watch it along with them (access to the tapes being a key part of this experience, which now feels like it was so long ago in relation to that). So, I watched that Evelyn Marsh plot arc the second time. Of course, that stuff is bad, but I always loved everything else in season 2. ::shrug::

Then I proceeded to make my way through all of Lynch's other work. Mostly on VHS, or DVD. I saw Mulholland Drive in the theater when it came out. Inland Empire was released shortly after I moved to NYC, which was fortuitous because I was then able to see it in the theater at IFC. (It had a pretty limited release, right? If you can ever see it in a theater, do so - there is this low bass drone that kind of hits you in the gut throughout, and I can't see how to get that experience otherwise, unless you have a really good sound system at home)

Needless to say, I love The Return. It was right around when Part 8 aired that this got to the extent of deciding to do a podcast (Drink Full and Descend, if you have somehow missed me plugging it over the months). I had been a guest on Mike's previous internet show thing, called Inside the Sulphurbath, a few years ago, so I knew he had a pro setup, and remembered that he was into Twin Peaks/Lynch. So, I reached out and said, "hey, maybe want to do a podcast?" We met for coffee and talked about it, and, well, did it. That has been a lot of fun.

As has been engaging on this forum. I agree with everyone else that there has been an impressive sense of community and civility on here, which is really distinctive given what the rest of the internet tends to be like. May that continue.

If you're ever in doubt about any of my posts, read my signature line.  It should tell you everything you need to know.

Latin. Purrr.

Looks like the translation could use a little work.

Hi all,

I'm Andy (or Andrew). I currently live in Eugene, Oregon, USA (about 100 miles south of Portland). I am the son of immigrant parents, a Navy veteran, and I make my living as a registered nurse, but my true passion is making music and DJing. I also love dancing, camping, and motorcycles.  

I like to look for the precious bits of wisdom and insight that TP has to offer into human nature and beyond 🙂

Hi. I'm Anne, an aspiring novelist from... Europe. (I'm weird about being more specific than that.) It's been around 2 weeks since I finished watching The Return, and I feel a strange emptiness now. 😛 I was too young to be allowed to watch the original run, back in 1990, and I only got around to it three or four years ago. From what I had been told, Twin Peaks was "nonsense," so I started watching with little to no expectations, just to see what the buzz was about. By the time Donna started sobbing in the classroom, I was hooked. 

My favourite character by far is Nadine, with Bobby coming in second, I think.

Hi Anne,

Welcome to Twin Peaks.

You needn't divulge any more than you are comfortable about yourself than being a TP fan.  😊 

Who was the monster that told you this was nonsense?

Totally missed this thread until today!

I'm Julie from Australia, born in 1962.

Been a fan since the first series aired but never had anyone to talk to about it  all those years. Bought Lauras diary when it came  out.  The series ended and that was it. Nothing until last year.

I  divorced my first husband (non Twin Peaks fan ) in 95 and got married married to my high school sweetheart ( big Twin Peaks fan) in 2008.

I'm so glad we got the 3rd series  and so grateful that we know have places like this to discuss things!

Good thing you got rid of that guy in 95.  😆

Oh,   what's in a name....this is a moniker I've used since the seventies,   it stalks me like some crazed butler.

I've been fortunate to meet David Lynch twice,  and I've been to two of the Twin Peaks massive get-togethers.     I doubt it will ever happen for me again,   so I treasure those memories.

I used to moderate a Peaks discussion forum back in the BBS days,    and I consider myself beyond lucky that I still know mates from way back then.   

I love cherry pie,   and I'm fond of coffee,  for the first two hours of the day that I'm awake.   I've also stalked Radiohead to an unhealthy degree.

This is where I end,   and where you start.
