I guess I’ll post my thoughts about Twin Peaks because why else would I have a tumblr.

I really, really like how the series is returning after 25 years, because at this point I’m only interested in Laura Palmer and the Black Lodge. Time focused rituals are very important to me, even more so when they’re focused around mourning.

Also I’m pretending the reboot will be about a female First Nations resident of Twin Peaks (I guess a relative of Hawk’s if we need to pay due diligence) and deals with abuse and colonialism in America, individual abuse which is a synecdoche of systemic abuse. If the Black Lodge is an ancient evil, why is it filled with white dudes? Is colonization the beginning of this? Or has it taken over a different evil? How does this evil exist and multiply in small town America, and by extension, North America? You can’t explore this question without race, and Twin Peaks could do it. That would be so good.

Lynch’s ideas of abjection & transcendence are too tied up with whiteness, i.e. bodies “without history.” But you could do so much with someone else.

“The danger of nostalgia is that it tends to confuse the actual home and the imaginary one. In extreme cases, it can create a phantom homeland, for the sake of which one is ready to die or kill. Unreflective nostalgia can breed monsters.”

Holy fuck. I&#8217;m reticent to tag this &#8220;racism&#8221; because I feel like it&#8217;s more accurate to look at how this is the perfect challenge to white supremacy and Eurocentrism (when it goes unchallenged/unnamed).
