Welcome to Twin Peaks launched on January 20, 2011. Not coincidentally on David Lynch’s birthday and about 20 years after I was exposed to Mark Frost and David Lynch‘s legendary show for the first time in my life.
Twin Peaks is not a fiction. Therefore, Twin Peaks will never end. Look around. Look within.
—Michael J. Anderson, in a comment on the Welcome to Twin Peaks Facebook page.
Encouraged to reignite the fading conversation among fans, and inspired by the show’s ever-growing influence on today’s art, fashion, music, film, television, design or just about any other aspect of popular culture, Welcome to Twin Peaks aims to demonstrate that even though more than two decades have passed, Twin Peaks is still relevant. Maybe even more than ever.
Twin Peaks wasn’t my first encounter with the work of David Lynch. As a 5-year-old, I was mesmerized by the haunting trailer of The Elephant Man. I watched it over and over, as much as I could. But it was the television drama he created with Mark Frost that drew me into the wonderful and strange mind of the Missoula, Montana-born Eagle Scout. Hence, Welcome to Twin Peaks is not exclusively about the Pacific Northwestern town we all love to revisit, but a portal to the artist’s entire oeuvre. In this fan community, there’s always David Lynch in the air…
See ya later, percolator. And keep the fire burning!
