I see some mention a strong element of "surrealism" in TR. In other words, don't expect a storyline. That makes the whole job a lot easier for any director. Just throw random scenes together -> surrealism ;) And you're basically not allowed to find it lacking because it's "surrealism" :) I disagree with that. That sort of intellectualization does no one any favours. Sometimes the emperor is simply naked.

But I like naked emperors.

Yes, many don't seem to mind.

From a Roger Ebert essay on 2001: A Space Odyssey:
https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/grea ... yssey-1968
"The film did not provide the clear narrative and easy entertainment cues the audience expected. The closing sequences, with the astronaut inexplicably finding himself in a bedroom somewhere beyond Jupiter, were baffling. The overnight Hollywood judgment was that Kubrick had become derailed, that in his obsession with effects and set pieces, he had failed to make a movie.

What he had actually done was make a philosophical statement about man's place in the universe, using images as those before him had used words, music or prayer. And he had made it in a way that invited us to contemplate it -- not to experience it vicariously as entertainment, as we might in a good conventional science-fiction film, but to stand outside it as a philosopher might, and think about it. "
Sound familiar?

For me, the difference is 2001 is a two hour film going experience. You are going into the theater in 1967 and letting its total wash over you, it’s characters and visuals invent and exist beginning when the opening titles begin. And yes, it is extraordinary, and yes, Lynch’s work is outstanding as well.

The difference for me which (again, for me) is impossible to divorce, is that this world has/had twenty plus years of feelings and a personal relationship to its characters and weekly installment structure. Yes, I can put the Return on and walk around my home and glance back up at it like an art installation and probably appreciate parts of that like I’m in an art gallery. But I’m not having the same experience for what I feel this genre initially set up.

On the flip side, I feel Peaks set up an impossibly high bar in its first season, and opening episodes of its second. It probably has sustained a long life for me because I could always imagine what could’ve been in the second season if there wasn’t so many behind the scene conflicts. And even with The Return, if it was given perfect melding of narrative with surrealism and didn’t go the way I wanted, I wouldn’t still be able to complain like I have for thirty one years.
God, I love this music. Isn't it too dreamy?

I never follow Sabrina's instagram (or very very rarely) and I've also advised those who do not to get their hopes up with her posts - but, following the link to the Interpol video, I see she's posting purple flowers again, along with more hearts. Guess she really likes the colour purple. (But she does know people will read more into it, right? And what kind of flowers are in that recent photo - are they wisteria or something else?)
I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.

Just had a look and I'm pretty sure that's an orchid. But from looking online it takes a lot of effort to find one with enough hanging bulbs to make it look that much like a wisteria blossom.

The pattern/trend is speculation goes quite for a week or two and the calm is broken by an overt-but-accidental message that gets everyone talking again. It's like a reverse summoning ritual. Or, rather, we were the ones being summoned.

As for the emoji question, Sabrina's use of emojis started with this new account. A long time ago I was looking at her old insta (not for wisteria just to picture the scene as TR was being produced and released) and it appeared she never used emojis of any colour. At all. Could be wrong as I wasn't really looking out for it but that's what I seem to recall.

As the same conversation was happening in two threads, it made more sense to shift it all to one, so the NFT discussion has been moved here:

DL and Interpol and NFT

He quarantined for two weeks in some Sydney hotel or apartment. Chronicled on his Insta via daily self-recorded video diaries.

Thanks Dougie.

I've heard of Peanuts ofc - but not familiar enough with it to pick up on the Linus reference. I've since googled a bit and found some photos of Linus in a pumpkin patch, which has also brought me up to speed!

I wonder why Kyle has dyed his hair. Must have a role to shoot as soon as he gets back to the States ... or just feels like a change. Even if it is a role, it's likely not TP, but it is interesting as many of us had been wondering at one point when/if he might dye his hair again. Alas, I do not think this is indicative of anything as I'm sure he has many projects coming up, but as always I guess we'll see.

You know, in general, I also wonder if Lynch would want him to dye his hair even if he wasn't playing Coop in another Lynch project? Something tells me Lynch might prefer "Kale" with dark hair much as he preferred Coop in suits. Just a feeling I get.

May be for flashback sequences in his Tiger King role
