I've been wondering this for a while. The rules for this wiki specify that articles for in-universe topics need to be written in the past tense regardless of the living/dead status of the topic. (Ex: "Dale Cooper was ..." instead of "Dale Cooper is ...") I was just curious about the significance of this.
What's on your mind?
I have thought about this for a while, can't seem to figure it out. Why did David Lynch choose to make his own character deaf? Does it mean that he doesn't understand/hear things as others do? What do yall think?
Just to let you know, if you didn't notice. When Agent Cooper falls into the purple ocean, the woman with no eyes takes him. He is besides a strange bell. That thing appears also in the house of the fireman.
So, I've been running a homebrew online panfandom roleplaying game for about 7/8 years now on Insanejournal. Recently, we've started to incorporate TP characters (both canon and AU version) into the game.
Anyone here a good writer, who'd like to possibly join and play with us?
The pale horse could represent imagery of trickery and treachery leading to death. In the Woodsman's incantation (episode 8), "This is the water, and this is the well. Drink full and descend" could represent the well of deep, universal knowledge. To "drink full" is to descend from the surface world of appearances into the knowledge of darkness underneath. "The horse is the white of the eye and dark within" could represent intimate treachery, as in "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes," meaning don't attack until you are close. "And dark within" could be a reference to the Trojan Horse, again an instance of trickery. Saying that "The horse is the white of the eye AND dark within" seems to suggest that all humans are vulnerable yet capable of darkness.
Historically, a white horse represents the archetype of the hero (the knight on the white horse who saves the maiden). Special agent Dale Cooper is the quintessential knight on the white horse as he tries to save Laura Palmer from being murdered. But even he must confront the fact that he is "dark within." Given this context, it is interesting that the white horse appears just before a death (or murder). Is Lynch saying that we should not place complete trust in our heros?
Some ambient sounds from the Double R Diner - complete with the sound of rain on the windows and smooth jazz music mixed with the natural cafe ambience:
Yesterday I saw a new band called Fat Trout Trailer Park and it made me think of references in music, either in lyrics, band names, or song titles...
My friend told me about the band Twin Peaks.. how do people feel about them?
The Fat Trout Trailer Park song was called Fatberg and has a bit of a Lynch like video
The magician, the investigator of illusions.
Is it the past or the future?
Is it always the future of the past?
Whose future was yesterday, Laura?
From now to the future is the past of the future.
Do you want to know?
Do you know who I am? Him? her? Yourself?
Diane, remind me to remember Richard and Linda.
The magician wants to see. See what? How long? Long. What time is it?
What year is it? FIre walk. Walk this way. Talk their way?
Through the darkness. To the light? Or with its assistance?
To here? To there? Can't get here from here. Gotta go. Behind the curtain? Gotta go. Gotta see. Gotta light?
One world? An illusion. Two worlds? Three potato? Or? Good/Evil. White/Black. Me/Me.
Let's call the whole thing off. Off/On. On/Off. It's electric. Boogaloo. Twin Peaks, Part 11, Revenge of the Fireman. Walkin' tall.
Through the darkness you want to see?
Fire, walk. Fire walk with me.
Fire walking we will go, Hi ho the
convenience store for milk.
Your pain and suffering just a can of corn to crossing.
Or crossing paths with them, or yourself, magician. A small price to sell...
question for super experts, fanatics, lovers of twin peaks world.are you aware of plot holes, inconsistencies, errors in twin peaks (3 seasons) and / or fire walk with me?I found some of them and I wanted to compare mine with those who found them ...
Hey people, I was thinking: what if the red room it's just a word play refered to the green room in Tv shows? That's why its in color (the future). Fireman' house in contrast is older ( black and white), and there is a cinema.
Hello to fellow Twin Peakers! I've just created a page for Twin Peaks in Bahasa Melayu on Wikpedia, if there's any fans from Malaysia or Malay-speakers, feel free to contribute and expand further to this page. Thank you! Terima kasih. Have a nice coffee and pie. : )
Does anyone else think that Jack could be the father? Audrey and he apparently had sex in his plane the day he left for Brazil. Yet this is not even mentioned as a possibility. Also why is Jack not in either the dossier complied by the Major or the one by Tammy Preston?
Apologies in advance for something(s) that have probably been asked and answered loads of times, but...
I wonder about the concept of the Lodges and their inhabitants. If the Black Lodge is where all the evil hangs out, how did Copper survive untarnished for 25 years? What is the idea of the evil spirits being granted a 25 year 'playtime' before having to come back? Is Bad Coop supposed to be inhabited by BOB? If so, he's had rather more than his 25 years, counting Leland as well. Was 'BOB/Bad Coop' ostracized for not coming back? If so, why did the vagrants put him back together after he was shot, or are they not from the Lodge?
Thanks in advance!
Have any of you seen this new music video featuring Michael Horse? It's by LA based psych rock band Dead Meadow. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/z4cV_bIZJSM
Thanks a lot, Mr. Lynch!
...so, are we going to assume the discussion of the smell of skunk in Part 1 was referring to an actual skunk in the hotel, or was it Ben covering for Jerry's marijuana smoking?
In part 13 when Sarah Palmer (kind of) watches a black and white boxing match (and finds all her liquor bottles empty) the boxing is just the same 20 seconds or so repeating over and over. I considered this was a production short-cut we weren't meant to notice, but Lynch keeps cutting back to the screen, so I think he wanted us to know. It likely symbolizes Sarah being stuck in the past, unable to move on from the tragedies of her life.
Is this an inconsistency or am I getting it wrong?
In the book "The Secret History Of Twin Peaks", The Archivist (Major Briggs) indicates that he was present on Douglas Milford's wedding to Lana:
"The last words Doug spoke to me that night, with one of his patented grins and a wink, just before they retired to the bridal suite: 'Good thing I kept the minister on speed dial." As we know, Milford died on the night of the wedding.
However, when Major Briggs returns from his 3-day disappearance during his fishing trip with Cooper, he writes: "Then I learned that Colonel Milford had died at the Great Northern Hotel three nights earlier".
The only was this could make sense within the book was if the fishing trip happened exactly on the day following the wedding... but in the series Major Briggs goes missing in episode 17, while the wedding takes place in episode 18 (and Cooper attended the wedding).
Am I getting something wrong?
