Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Mark O’Brien of Twin Peaks Scotia

I met Mark O’Brien during the 2017 Twin Peaks Festival in Washington. My wife and I arrived at Mount Si High School for the official festival opening, and there was Mark; taking in the cool air (not too cool) and listening to the sounds before the doors opened for the Festival sign-in.

I didn’t even meet Ben and Bryon, the intrepid Twin Peaks Unwrapped hosts, when they were seated at a sound board recording their podcast just a few feet from me way back in 2016.

A Facebook post over the weekend got me thinking about exactly what we do and don't know about the coordinates, and it took me here, where I will go so far as to explore their purpose. Mr. C Wants the …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Karl Eckler of the Counter Esperanto Podcast

During the run-up to Season 3 of Twin Peaks, I consumed as many podcasts as I could while driving to and from work, hoping to pick up every little nugget of information, while remaining as spoiler-free as possible.  Over the next two months, I'll be sharing the Living Novel entries of some of my favorite Twin …

“Is it Future, or is it Past?”: Pinning the final Season 3 scenes to time – Electricity Nexus #17

This time around, I’m looking at signs of Past and Future in the final RichardCooper and Carrie scenes of Season 3. I touched on it right at the end of my memory theory column where I suggested an angle for it being the future, which I'll expand on after making a case for placing it …
