The Planet Lamp part 2
there's all kinds of interesting stuff in that dream sequence. Bob is in that utility room with wheels and pipes - and there's ringing - when he mentions his death bag. Sorta like a boiler room under a hotel, for instance.
Doesn't it seem like this death bag should have showed up somehow? Or did it?
And then of course MFAP's cousin who looks like Laura. Is Carrie Page his cousin? I suppose Laura Palmer looks exactly like Laura Palmer too. Is she a cousin because her parents are sorta Bob and Judy, with one of those being brother or sister to his maker? Who are his parents then? - and brass tacks, who are the grandparents? Experiment's mother - yikes. Ungoliant
Later I think Coop mentions Mike and Bob (different Mike, different Bob) and he says that after Mike saw God he shot Bob. How many times has Bob been shot, I mean damn. Hard to picture a gun in the Red Room, or above the convenience store. I wonder how that went down.
And of course the famous line that is like a sneeze that just won't launch: "But sometimes my arms bend back"...
Would a death bag refer to a body bag (smiling or otherwise)? That's a point though; surely if BoB kills his victims, its useless to him - the access to all that garmonbozia, gone. Although I suppose there's plenty of victims to be had. What's a couple of deaths in the grand scheme of things?
Talking of Mike shooting BoB, I've never fully understood the attitude of the inhabitants of the Red Room to BoB. They seem to be supportive of him, working in conjunction even, but then sometimes...take the end of FWWM. Mike and TMFAP don't appear too pleased with BoB, they're more interested in garmonbozia. And why is Mike allowed back into the Red Room in The Return if the creatures of the Red Room are on BoB's side? What are the evolution of the arm's aims? Is Mike here a doppleganger?
All very ambiguous.
