Re: Parts 1 & 2 - My log has a message for you & The stars turn and a time presents itself (SPOILERS)

Having completed a full rewatch of S1, S2 and FWWM over the last few weeks, last night I commenced rewatching S3 afresh. So begins a revaluation of the whole of S3: The stand-out moments to me are somewhat different now. Gerard's repeated line 'Is it future or is it past?' is, in both cases, spoken ...

Re: The little girl who lives down the lane (1976 film)

Certainly the phrase causes all of the above things to ring. For me it also stirs memories of the line from FWWM in Hap's Diner, from the patron with the French companion, who can differentiate Shinola from shit: 'Are you talking about that little girl that got murdered?' Not to forget, from later i...

Re: Tulpas vs. Doppelgangers

If Mr. Reindeer's premise that creating a tulpa partitions off faculties that get subtracted from the original, then it is significant that Naido is eyeless and cannot talk. This would suggest that whoever manufactured the Diane tulpa wanted her to be as fully functional as possible, perhaps to work...

Re: POLL: The Nature of Audrey's Situation (Spoilers)

I'm still in the 'Audrey's situation is indeterminacy' camp, but of course this means that I can keep viewing it from different angles. It's like a narrative ambigram -- from one perspective it says one thing, and from another perspective it says something quite different, and so on. You can keep sh...

Re: Season 3 structures and mechanisms [SPOILERS]

No worries. I see what you were saying now. I think I missed the part where it was Mr. Reindeer's use of the word that you were responding to, and I just took it as a general question. One of my first ever encounters with the word abstraction was during an art class years ago. We drew a still life o...

Re: Season 3 structures and mechanisms [SPOILERS]

OK. Will someone explain to me what they mean talking about this series, by ' abstracttion' For me it is relentlessly literal and concrete ( in terms of what you are actually shown), the only difference to normal TV is that you are not told how to think about it or interpret. But what is actually t...

Re: Season 3 structures and mechanisms [SPOILERS]

In terms of characterising the overall structure of S3 so far we've had various analogies: Puzzle Box/Jigsaw, Alternative Storylines, Russian Dolls (the nesting kind), Prisms, and Musical Chairs. In light of the idea of a 'prismatic approach to narrative' (I like this very much, referendum) I want t...

So apparently the woman who was shopped out and replaced by Mr. C isn't a 'girl from Ipanema' ( :P ), it was Al Capone's grandniece (Deirdre Marie Capone), and this property was Capone's family retreat, bought in 1928. The same source claims he died there.

Re: Just a thought...about the entire extent of our enjoyment

The sense I get of this season isn't a puzzle box with a few pieces strategically left out to make the viewer mentally fill in the blanks. It's 5 or 6 unrelated puzzles, all missing a ton of pieces and thrown in a box together, and DKL finds the abstraction gorgeous. So do I. Thank you, this is bri...

Season 3 structures and mechanisms [SPOILERS]

I kind of view Twin Peaks as a vehicle for telling certain stories. I mean this both figuratively and concretely. In the original run it was a vehicle with many articulated parts, something like a train. It took the best parts of contemporary soap and drama and utilised them to do something very di...

Re: Works That Influenced Twin Peaks: The Return

I see a lot more similarities between the Return and the Twilight Zone episode "Shadow Play" especially after now seeing the ending to the Return. The zooming in the clock, caught in an endless loop. Guy in jail being described as an animal (Nadio/drunk sounds anyone?) And at one point th...

Ah so. Green glove guy was Lynch's creation after all.

Boxes full of ideas, eh? That sounds promising.

That table looks very useful. I could use a table like that.
