Boy, are Twin Peaks fans in New York City being spoiled lately! In addition to the ongoing David Lynch burlesque nights, there's now a Twin Peaks TV Party coming up May 9th 2011 at Brooklyn's The Bell House.
The second Twin Peaks podcast is available. In 55 minutes, Matt, Mel, Brad and Caitlin cover the Benjamin Horne's foot fetish, James Hurley's intelligence and the squirrely peasant man at the end of the bed post in the 2nd episode of Twin Peaks, Traces To Nowhere.
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that the Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me soundtrack was chosen by NME as the best film soundtrack ever made. This week, NME called up its composer, Angelo Badalamenti, and asked him a few questions about the amazing album he created about 20 years ago together with David Lynch. Here are my favorite bits from the interview.

A Witch House and Okkvlt Guide To Twin Peaks is a witch house tribute to the world of Twin Peaks. Witch house, for the uninitiated which I bet are many, is a music genre which combines hip hop and dubstep rhythms, industrial noise and gothic rock. And then some.
I've been traveling the past week and a half (more on that later), and it's quite delightful to return home and discover not one but three freshly squeezed Twin Peaks goodies over at davidlynch.com. 2011 is clearly the year of the spoiled Twin Peaks fan! Along with 3 new songs, there are 8 new Twin Peaks backgrounds.
