Re: The Great Northern according to The Simpsons!

Everything you've stated (and including the architecture) would indicate that the Simpsons are referencing the hotel from The Shining just as much if not more than the Great Northern in Twin Peaks. :) I'm still not seeing that they were intentionally referencing Twin Peaks. Very smart theory, jlyon...

Re: The Great Northern according to The Simpsons!

The architecture of the building to me is an evident reference to the Great Northern, guys! Yeah, it is not an exact cartoon replica, but just take a look to the images to find out exactly where the inspiration come from (style, shapes, colors, windows, parking lot, etc.)... Please also take a look ...

Re: Counterfeit Star Pics Twin Peaks autographs... UPDATED!

I'm not an expert. However, I own all of the cards right now (minus the Joan Chen which I've owned in the past) I'm just skeptical. Everyone should be. Also, what's interesting is that the seller states he's pulled all of the autos from packs. Well, as mega collector Bruce Phillips has confirmed, v...
