Apparently, some of it was sold to mineral collectors and even made into jewelry.


Woah! :o

I don't know why, but I decided to look up more info about Formica online . . .

When Formica Laminate was first invented in the early 1900's, it was originally invented for electrical insulation as a synthetic substitute for mica (Mike?), which had been used previously. It is also heat resistant. (Fire Walk with Me?)

I imagine in the many years since FWWM, someone wrote about that somewhere, but it was new to me. I think that is why I love Twin Peaks so much - I am still discovering little nuggets of info decades later that I never knew before. Even some of the stuff that seemed crazy and oddball at the time seems to have a rhyme and reason for it.

I've written about this elsewhere on the board, but that was my reading, 'this is a formica table' = 'this is a for Mike table', ie: the garmonbozia on the table is for Mike, Bob is stealing/harvesting on the sly.
Good pick-up on the electrical insulation / heat resistance! I like a symbol that keeps on giving.

And of course the green ring, which appears to be made out of a piece of the green table, is the item which assures that people/souls are routed to MIKE in the Red Room.

Last year while I was watching Season 3 of Twin Peaks, one thing that seemed like a hell of a missed opportunity was for Lynch to have brought Autechre on board for soundtrack & sound design as well as for Roadhouse appearances. "What could be more appropriate?", I wondered, and seriously lamented the fact that Lynch and Frost had never happened to stumble across their work.

(Autechre are Rob Brown and Sean Booth. They've been creating electronic music for the past several decades.)

Well as it turns out, the expectation / daydream was a realistic one, as Booth is totally into the way Lynch uses time:

"Also in terms of the way space and time relate to each other: David Lynch is a huge influence on me lately, just because of the way he uses time. Lynch is a great example of somebody who appreciates the sophistication of the audience he is working with. He doesn’t patronize his audience. That’s missing from a lot of music out there."


Excerpt from:
Autechre on Their Epic NTS Sessions, David Lynch, and Where Code Meets Music
August 9, 2018


For those interested in listening, here is some of Autechre's work:

What a coincidence, I've just been getting into them lately! I regretted there was no appearance of Aphex Twin or Joanna Newsom, and a bunch others, but most of who I felt could've been great for no reason but my own liking of their music, were primarily foreign bands ... and it made me realize how Americana the selection was for who did perform. With the exception of perhaps Nine Inch Nails, there was a very 'from the rural valley' feel to much of the artists, so that despite being actual famous acts, they did fit the dive bar setting.

How did you find out about Autechre? For me, it was just extremely good luck. My friend Steve is a real music lover. It's his life, and back when we worked together in a record store, we talked about music all the time. He'd kind of been with electronic music from the beginning, going to see Kraftwerk and the like starting back in the 1960's. Anyway, one day about 20 years ago, I happened to mention Richard D. James and with a smile he goes, "Man, if you like Aphex Twin, then Autechre would be the next logical progression." He took me over to their section in the store and grabbed Tri Repetae++ from the bin. I bought it, went home, threw on some headphones and had my mind blown!

By the way, Autechre released an 8 hour work back in April, and there's an Aphex Twin EP coming out tomorrow.

Oddly enough, some weird youtube video forever ago that I've never seen again that mixed black and white Teletubbies (or was it Boobah?) footage to Aphex Twin, Autechre, and others. But pretty much the same as you, association with Aphex Twin in various ways, and I checked them out every time I saw them compared, though only until a few weeks ago did I finally click with some of Autechre's music. What finally did it was the Anti EP, which I checked out because I was reading up on the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994, and found out about what's covered here.

And yeah, already waiting for it in the mail. :)
