Writes Suckers Apparel (we covered their awesome superhero dresses and leggings a while back) of this item in their new Twin Peaks collection: “This warm capelet is our tribute to the bathroom walls of Twin Peaks High.” That’s how I like all my clothes: Inspired by David Lynch bathrooms. Seriously though, I want everything in this line. There are Log Lady leggings. (Matt Fraction)READ MORE

Kiersten Essenpreis has created a series of prints hypothesizing what various villains, monsters, and cartoon characters do on their days off. On my day off, I went to the Museum of Natural History, but nobody made a drawing of me. (Actually, oddly enough, somebody did. But it’s funnier to say otherwise, so the artist will have to forgive me.)READ MORE

Netflix is pretty decent when it comes to piracy. In fact they just implemented a measure that makes it easier to share one Netflix account between multiple people. So it’s not surprising to hear their Chief Content Officer, Ted Sarandos, say something like:
I think people do want a great experience and they want access – people are mostly honest. The best way to combat piracy isn’t legislatively or criminally but by giving good options. One of the side effects of growth of content is an expectation to have access to it. You can’t use the internet as a marketing vehicle and then not as a delivery vehicle.
But what’s more interesting to me, in the same interview, is what he says about bringing back old television shows with cult followings, specifically for Netflix, and why we shouldn’t expect new episodes of Twin Peaks, Firefly, or Buffy to show up anytime soon.READ MORE

No? It happened recently in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Scooby falls asleep and finds himself in the Red Room, where the Man From Another Place (voiced by Michael J. Anderson, a.ka. the actor who actually played the Man From Another Place) shows up to warm him about… I don’t even know. I was too busy being terrified. If you’ve ever wondered whether animation and the presence of a goofy dog make the Red Room less creepy, the answer is yes, but only slightly.
Another Twin Peaks-inspired scene from later in the season—yes, two different episodes of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated have had Twin Peaks homages—is behind the cut. I want to find the people responsible for this and shake their hands.READ MORE

There’s a reason we love Noelle Stevenson (a.k.a. Gingerhaze) around here, and the reason is that she draws stuff like this. And her mad skills at depicting ’90s hair and fashion. And her San from Princess Mononoke. And her propensity for stripes. (Fine, fine, I can’t speak for Susana and Jill on that one—I just really like stripes and plaid.)READ MORE

Of all the news items I expected I might see today, this was not one of them. There was a rumor floating around that David Lynch met with NBC executives about a Twin Peaks reboot. My hopes were up. Then producer Mark Frost came forward and said the meeting didn’t happen. Hopes down.
Yeah. I know. Everything’s feeling very surreal and Lynchian right now.READ MORE
