TWIN PEAKS – the REAL and the SURREAL
A 1993 Photo Journal of TWIN PEAKS
To celebrate the return of TWIN PEAKS 00individual shifts gears to focus on an event that was born in the ’70s that did not come to fruition until decades later. Honoring that spirit is David Lynch’s 1977 Cult Film “Eraserhead”. This black and white work of subtle unnerving anxiety and otherworldly dystopian horror is drenched in disturbed beauty that got everyone’s attention; especially legendary Mel Brooks, who produced Lynch’s 1980 “The Elephant Man”. That film was a critical and commercial success with eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actor.
Lynch then took on the Herculean task of his 1984 majestically-real “Dune”, followed by the 1986 twisted classic “Blue Velvet”, and then the wickedly whacked 1990 “Wild at Heart”; which all led up to the anticipation of the April 8, 1990 debut of the TV series; TWIN PEAKS.
Other than a true Rock and Music Fan, 00individual had never been a “fanatic” to the point of being psychologically-involved and mysteriously obsessed with a television show. The feeling must be how it is for Star Wars/Star Trek Fans and Lord Of the Rings/Harry Potter Fans – in some weird way these “events” speak to people and they seem like home – like where their souls should be.
For 00individual the whole environment of Twin Peaks; the location, the people, the otherness of the wilderness, the reality of Good verses Evil, the alternate dimensions – the coffee, the donuts, and Angelo Badalementi’s extremely hip “sounds from another place” soundtrack – was all very thrillingly comfortable.
But 00individual needed more, he wanted to drink damn good coffee at the Double R Diner; he wanted to cruise by the Roadhouse to jam with the Bookhouse Boys, he wanted to fill-up at Big Ed’s Gas Farm, and he wanted to stay at the Great Northern and see the Whitetail Falls.
So, 00individual thought, why not take a trip to Twin Peaks, for real? And so, in 1993, 00individual, with his wife and son, set out on a surreal trip to discover the Real and the Surreal TWIN PEAKS.
