Twin Peaks Backstory Investigations: Body Heat, Directed by Lawrence Kasdan, (1981)

When Agent Tamara Preston is working her way through a file found in the Bookhouse entitled “The Andrew Packard Case,” as documented in Mark Frost’s The Secret History of Twin Peaks (2016), she adds a footnote to Josie’s claim not to have seen the boathouse explosion that was believed to have killed her husband. Preston writes, …

Twin Peaks Backstory Investigations: The FBI Story, Directed by Mervyn LeRoy, (1959)

The very first autobiographical entry that thirteen year old Dale Cooper made on an audiotape, recorded December 25th 1967, featured the following statement: “Above my bed on the wall is my most important personal item, a poster of Jimmy Stewart in the movie The FBI Story which only I can touch.”   It seems fitting, of …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Twin_Petes and Kim

In the spirit of Twin Peaks Season 3 and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks: The Final Dossier, my wife’s memories of our Twin Peaks life together (as a result of watching the series and immersing ourselves in nearly all that it has offered over the last 28 years!) differ from mine.  Not fundamentally, but enough for …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Courtenay Stallings of the Blue Rose Magazine

I met Courtenay Stallings and her husband Bob at the 2017 Twin Peaks Festival in Washington. Her kindness and her passion for Twin Peaks and David Lynch's other work is clearly evident in talking with her and experiencing Twin Peaks' physical setting with her in Washington.  What makes Courtenay unique as a fan, is that …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Eric Allen Hatch

There are few social media accounts that I believe successfully connect my odd sense of humor with my love of Twin Peaks and David Lynch. Eric Allen Hatch is a meme-generating genius whose love of David Lynch is poured into each of his creations. Through his Twitter and Instagram accounts, he simultaneously takes some not-so-subtle …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Javier of Black Lodge Cult

Javier is a relatively new Twin Peaks fan.  As he details below, he was much too young to see the original series when it first aired, and that hasn't stopped him from feeling the impact during his first experience.  He's directed his Twin Peaks passion into Black Lodge Cult, a Twitter page that incorporates captioned …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – The Diane Podcast Team

Throughout their review of Twin Peaks’ original run, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Season 3, and their podcast’s subsequent branching, the Diane team has led us on a fast-paced, research-based look through the trees using their keen senses, an anthropological lens and Part 8’s “Uterus Trumpet.”  If you’re like me, closely observing the eclectic …

Une Âme Solitaire: Fans in a Living Novel – Daniel Ceresia

Daniel Ceresia and I are fellow members of the Blue Rose Task Force.  We didn’t “meet” on a case diving deeper into Lois Duffy’s strange disappearances, but through Showtime’s conscious assembling of about twenty passionate Twin Peaks fans whose collective social media presence made 2017’s Season 3 more special than I could have possibly imagined. …

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. Someone told me …
