#twin peaks

“Externalizing the impulse to prey on young women cleverly depicts it as both inevitable and beyond the control of men. Marcus’s essay is a brilliant meditation on how the Dead Girl Show reflects and appeals to the American psyche, which is imprinted with the memory of two inherited atrocities, African slavery and the genocide of the Native Americans. He discusses the familiarity in old murder ballads that tell us that, “America is a country where anyone can be killed at any time, for any reason, or no reason at all.” Murder is something on the air, like a demon — and make no mistake, this is a kind of victim blaming.”

The Oldest Story: Toward a Theory of a Dead Girl Show by Alice Bolin (April 28th, 2014)

Phenomenal piece that articulates a lot of my own discomfort as a fan/viewer of Twin Peaks. This particular quote reminds me of one of my favourite songs.

Odilon RTW Fall 2012

Inspired by  “Twin Peaks,” Stacey Clark referenced the Black Lodge and its mysterious  secrets between the living and the dead turning out a tight  presentation that nodded to the TV series with the use of graphic zigzag  patterns, bold swaths of red and sweaters with the iconic phrase “The  owls are not what they seem.”


NEED. NEED. NEED.

i want it really badly but Twin Peaks is going mainstream and thats odd

i am the only one who laughed out loud at the “twin peaks is going mainstream” comment? i don’t mean to be a dick but… really? it’s not like it was broadcast on a major television network or anything. or like the simpsons referenced the show to high heavens, or like it’s available on netflix across north america… but yes, i guess one fashion designer (i’ve never heard of) making a sweater that says “the owls are not what they seem” officially marks that twin peaks is going mainstream

/end uneccessary grumpyness
mostly reblogging to say: i’d wear that sweater in a heartbeat, but that collection hardly merits being called “twin peaks” inspired. yeah, the zigzag black and white stuff is fun, but it’s pretty “meh” more than anything.

Damn… Audrey just got friendzoned.

 okay of course as a viewer, you’re supposed to want agent cooper and audrey horne to get busy in the show but i hate it when people are like OMG OTP why did they never get it on! audrey’s a young girl in high school, supposed to be what, seventeen in the show? cooper is a 35 year old FBI detective investigating one of her peer’s murders! aside from the age difference, if you watch and follow the show it’s clear it would have been totally negligent not to mention creepy if cooper had seduced her, even though she was totally into him. it’s pretty fucking rare to see representations in television of people in those positions not abusing their authority.

it’s not like “friendzoned,” it’s more like “responsible adult who won’t engage in an inappropriate sexual relationship that could potentially

and i mean i totally admired audrey too and think she’s a stone fox and a badass character for the most part who uses her sexuality as a

Twin Peaks Style, Part One: The Owls Are Not What They Seem

Audrey makes it her mission to solve the mystery of Laura’s murder, not because she misses Laura, but because she desperately wants to sleep with Special Agent Dale Cooper. Then again, who doesn’t? Never mind.

pretty fun read. i used to love writing about the significance/symbolism of fashion in films back in school. should be extra appreciated since we seem to be on the topic of twin peaks these days here in tumblrtown…

problematic parts of twin peaks

vesuvii:

now, this is my first time watching twin peaks. i’m overall in love with the show but i need to vent about some things that really fucking bug me.

1. hawk. he is a first nations person, so that means he obviously has to be the amazing scout of the police department with a great understanding of spirituality and is wiser than the white man. yikes. david lynch, could you keep your racist stereotypes out of twin peaks (mr tojamura is a nightmare as well (“shank you” really????)).

2. gordon cole’s hearing problem. he talks loudly and never understands what other people are saying. it’s supposed to be funny. people’s bodies and how they function in a world hostile to their bodies is never hilarious. 

when i first watched the show five years ago, i was wondering if there was anything out there written about hawk’s portrayal specifically, but you hit the nail on the head with the other questions you bring up. also, been thinking lots about how so many awesome, cool, critical feminist people are super into twin peaks these days. why now?  don’t have time to flesh out my ideas, but i’d like to find the time to do that soon…

i can’t fool you folks. you’re all so smart. i wish i could give you real cupcakes but in the meantime, here is a cupcake recipe i just made this week that was super delicious. mary van note! one day i will bestow a twin peaks themed cherry pie inspired cupcake on you.
