No week goes by without the addition of previously unreleased Twin Peaks songs to the excellent music collection over at davidlynch.com. Today's release is that of the Great Northern Piano Bundle composed by Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch.
Watching Twin Peaks recently inspired Holly Wales to create a set of geometric illustrations, which explores ideas about how narrative affects the way images are presented separately rather than as whole complete scenes.
Because in the age of smartphones, there's not much use for voice-activated micro-cassette recorders anymore, I'm proud to present Dale Cooper's famous tape recorder in its latest incarnation: Diane, The Portable Speaker. Yes, it's a real and useful product. I'm not kidding.
The recently relaunched davidlynch.com is absolutely great, don't get me wrong, but when you purchase a song or bundle, it doesn't include a single or album cover like in the good old days of vinyl, or CDs. In case you miss the visual reference, Ross has you covered with his cool Twin Peaks Soundtrack Design blog.
The good folk over at davidlynch.com have another treat for us: RR Swing, composed for the soundtrack of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Put $0.99 in their jukebox, and you can swing to this tune all day.
The Double R Club, organisers of damn fine Lynchian burlesque and cabaret since 2009, are throwing their 2nd annual Miss Twin Peaks Contest on June 16th 2011. The beauty pageant from another place will be a tournament between the beauteous and the bestial, the feminine and the feral, all played out in a world of dreams.
Nail art doesn't involve sliding cut-out letters under the nail (that's just psychopath behavior), but it's the craft of drawing pictures on acrylic nails which can then be stuck on top of natural ones. This calls for an example, like this Twin Peaks inspired set of nails!
I remember when I was a kid, you know, dividing my heaps of leisure time between Princess Zelda and Laura Palmer, I always hoped somebody would make a game adaptation of Twin Peaks. And for a while, there were indeed crazy rumors going around that Hi Tech Expressions was to release a Twin Peaks video game...
Without Twin Peaks, nobody might've ever heard of Moby. It was the Laura Palmer's Theme-sampling Go that put Richard Melville Hall (that's his real name) on the map of 90s electronic music. Luckily for us, the Harlem-born musician went on to do (even) great(er) stuff. In a recent interview by The Creators Project, Moby mentions Twin Peaks and its creator, David Lynch.
