Announcing the release of my new book, Postcards From Twin Peaks!

cover

Within this book dwell mysteries deep and dark, syntactic secrets, beautiful otherness, rhyme and unreason, all springing from the singular town of TWIN PEAKS.

How does one get to Twin Peaks? Is it in the heart, or in the mind? Does the Log Lady know more than she’s letting on? Is Cooper still the man he always was? What are we really to take from the tragic end of Waldo? Who is Diane? Who was Agent Jeffries? And what did Harold Smith’s suicide note really mean? Answers to these questions and more you will find within these pages.

This is a book for Twin Peakers, backwards speakers, loggers, Black Lodgers, Special Agents, one-armed show salesmen, fans, fanatics and everyone in between…

The Log Lady Is NOT Gonna Be Happy About This

The incredible Nick Fredriksen, a one-armed man, chops wood. Competitively.

Twin Peaksy enough for ya?

Nick lost his arm when he was eight after getting his shirt caught in a hay-baler; still wins the competition. Damn fine, indeed.

Forgotten Dream of Dance & Dirt

Dream, 2011: I was dancing balletically around a grandiose library, throwing handfuls of dirt and live worms. No one else was there. I danced into the toilets at the back of the room and performed a ‘beckoning action’, knowing somehow that it would summon someone. A pageboy, in full uniform, came in and I chased him back into the library, catching him and stabbing him repeatedly with a large knife. End.

Maddy’s vision / Bowie’s lyric

“Don’t look at the carpet, I drew something awful on it”

This lyric from Bowie’s ‘Breaking Glass‘ (from Low), always reminds me of the above moment in Twin Peaks…

They… just cut a rug like regular chickens?

Sure, they just cut a rug like regular chickens.

On the 40th anniversary of Eraserhead:

“In movies, there is music that is not melodious, but it’s setting a mood and a very special feel. And then there’s music that has a melody that can tear your heart out.”
