I am not saying that this guy is correct on every single detail (or that this is the only perspective on the show), but some of his discoveries are just astonishing and some of the the evidence he presents simply cannot be dismissed. The implications of his videos (there is a second one, that deals with Senorita Dido, Candy and other things that were left out for the first one) are HUGE and undeniable. Why aren't they discussed?
Personally I think the attitude he has that he "solved" the show is toxic. Lynch's tweets are flooded with comments about how Twin Perfect has "solved" his show, as if that was ever the point. Twin Peaks Actually Explained has given people the means with which to hammer the nail they want to into the show, remove the autonomy of the artist, declare it dead and done and position themselves rhetorically and figuratively above the material. I said it before, but I'll say it again: he did the same thing with the Silent Hill franchise decades ago, and because this was before some maturing on his part, was even worse about it then, acting like he was the sole owner of truth re the franchise, and condescending to anyone who disagreed with him.
It's the fanboy impulse to take ownership away from the creator. He's just gotten a bit more humble about it, but it wasn't compatible with video games that took inspiration from art films and was meant to be somewhat abstract, and it for sure as heck is not compatible with actual abstract art. It's content for the market that cares more about content referentialism than the content itself, like watching a Game Grumps playthrough.
Recipe not my own. In a coffee cup. 3 TBS flour, 2 TBS sugar, 1.5 TBS cocoa powder, .25 TSP baking powder, pinch of salt. 3 TBS milk, 1.5 TBS vegetable oil, 1 TBS peanut butter. Add and mix each set. Microwave 1 minute 10 seconds. The cup will be hot.
