That's not the article I'm referring to, but that's a good one.  🙂

Trying to figure out who at the Sno-Val Record I would contact.....

I have contacted the Seattle times to see if/how I can access their archives online for the time period of 1989 - 1993 so lets see what they respond with.

 

In the meantime I have also run across a smattering of related articles from different sources:

I saved the best for last..*eg*

Ok, so the Seattle times is fairly useless in their customer service, they sent me a link to buy back issues, however since I wouldn't possibly know what issue on what date any article exists this is a useless response.

However it seems the Seattle public library has all the issues, catalogued and searchable online, but you need a library card to use this searchable database.  I was willing to pay for a library card even though I am not in the area that much anymore except the link to get a card doesn't work...page not found error.  So now it is up to you people in the Puget Sound Area, if any of you have a library card, here is the link:

https://ezproxy.spl.org/login?url=http://infoweb.newsbank.com/resources/search/nb?p=AMNEWS&t=state%3AWA!USA%2B-%2BWashington

You may be able to get a card from your local library and have access to the site, but I am not sure...this will take some detective work!

Damn.  I think my account is expired, can't login.  No success in searching either. 

This is pretty entertaining though; it's the 1990 Usenet version of Welcome To Twin Peaks

Ok, my KCLS number doesn't work.  I'll see about getting a Seattle Public Library card.

 

 

***EDIT/UPDATE***

I don't reside or work in the city of Seattle limits so this may take a while.  Plus I will have to go into a SPL location to get my card.  Won't happen in the next few days......

You keep pursuing that directive while I discuss the possibility with my friends in Bremerton and Bainbridge who actually commute to Seattle for work.  Knowing them and their nature I seriously doubt either set of friends has a Library card of any kind (and this is no slight on them as I know they read a lot online and with Kindle's etc) it's just that it is a dying medium.  One of us should be able to come up with a working card in the next few weeks.

Thanx,

Jack

This is interesting:

Short article from 1990 with Frank Silva's thoughts.  Insight into Lynch and Frost's master plan.

I keep reading things like Frank Silva saying:

`A lot of it is made up as they go along.'

And some guy from the Usenet article said that he was told something similar from someone working on production.

While it supports things I have stated here and a lot of what I believed from the start, it is also a sad reflection on the groundbreaking show.  It also makes all of us who are scouring the details and looking for clues seem a bit silly in our obsession.

Yet here I sit...typing this...

Help?

A fair point, to be sure, but what about this:  It's not so much that LynchFrost is handing down the meaning of life, because after all, they're just a couple dudes with some passion and a good eye, but what makes them an authority?  Davinci, Einstein, Socrates, the Bhudda - they've all put their lives into giving us that answer, and while that's interesting, it's not like all of our minds are blown.   So instead LynFro are handing down a mystery so compelling and tantalizing that we will never truly be sure that that mind-liquidizing godlike understanding isn't just scantly behind the next wisp of tissue paper, and we just have to keep digging.  For such a goddamn dearth of answers, we sure have expanded our minds.  And that's genius!

I have many thoughts on this but we should probably start a new topic for the discussion.

And now for something completely different:

The Native Americans had strange beliefs about the Mountains of Washington State, I guess Twin Peaks the mountains not the town could be a part of this myth:
