Twin Peaks Blogging

For those of you who know me well, you are more than aware of my deep love for all things involving David Lynch. The director, writer and artist could be one of my favorite people in Hollywood ever, mainly for his disturbing looks at small town USA, without the rose colored glasses. Lynch’s worked grabbed me at a young age, but the project that remains my favorite is the serial “Twin Peaks”, which is now available for viewing on Whitney over at PopCandy posted about Fancast the other day and how they brought on Lara Flynn Boyle to discuss her work on Twin Peaks this week. Boyle is blogging everyday and discussing with readers and commenters in promotion of the genre expanding television program. Lara said that her time on the show was where she “learned” how to be an actress and that working with Lynch on such an inspired project was remarkable. She also said that as opposed to other hit shows of the 1990’s, all the lead female characters got along extremely well.

Boyle also chronicled her time on “The Practice”, which is now available as well on Funcast. The collector’s edition of the “Twin Peaks” was just released finally on DVD, with some great features and interviews, as well as a set of postcards I will using to stylize my “T.P” tattoo. In other “Twin Peaks” news, Madchen Amick, Shelly Johnson on “Peaks”, has signed on to join the cast of “Gossip Girl” as a cougar type who shows a strong interest in Nate, played by Chase Crawford. And David Lynch is curerntly working with another fascinating director Werner Jerzog on a murder/drama movie.
