A Twin Peaks Pilgrimage, in photos

Happy one year anniversary of Twin Peaks returning to TV! I guess it’s appropriate—but also completely coincidental—that last week Alex and I rented a car in Seattle, hopped on I-90 east toward Snoqualmie, and went on a day-long expedition to visit a bunch of Twin Peaks filming locations. (Alex had been in town for aContinue reading “A Twin Peaks Pilgrimage, in photos”

4 films that define you…go.

This made the rounds on Twitter earlier today, and it seemed like a fun thing to do. The challenge was to name four films that define you, in celebration of “the personal nature of cinema.” A worthy endeavor. It kind of evolved into people just posting four images or screencaps from their chosen movies, whichContinue reading “4 films that define you…go.”

On Geocities, FanFiction.net, and Tumblr

I recently read a fascinating Longreads article by Julianne Aguilar about girls on the Internet in the early 2000s and found myself relating to it way more than I expected. Not just because I was a 12-year-old girl who had a DIY Geocities site, but because it made me remember how it felt to be part ofContinue reading “On Geocities, FanFiction.net, and Tumblr”

Wakanda to Tokyo in 24 hours

This past weekend we went to see two movies at our neighborhood theater, the first being Black Panther, of course. I’ll leave it to the reviewers to talk about the cultural impact; I’m just here to say I’m really really into the soundtrack (both Ludwig Göransson’s and Kendrick Lamar’s). So much talking drum! And mbira! I’m justContinue reading “Wakanda to Tokyo in 24 hours”

GP: The Grievous Angel

For years I’ve been wanting to go to Joshua Tree National Park: 1) because it’s an amazing place, and 2) to pay tribute to country rock legend Gram Parsons. I can’t remember when I first learned about Gram, but I’m pretty sure it was through one of the many Keith Richards interviews/memoirs I’ve read overContinue reading “GP: The Grievous Angel”

Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl

So, I’ve been really into The Crown lately…probably because it’s a welcome distraction from the hot mess that is the United States right now. Also I like looking at fancy interiors and rooms with impossibly high ceilings. Previously, the only knowledge I had about the royal family was from many years of watching Beatles footage.Continue reading “Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl”

What story are we watching?

You know that feeling after waking up from a strange dream…those few seconds of disoriented, uneasy confusion? Having to parse reality from your mind’s own creations? Welp, the finale of Twin Peaks: The Return has managed to pinpoint that feeling and make it last indefinitely. Man…David Lynch and Mark Frost really made me think weContinue reading “What story are we watching?”

Monday Night Feels: The Who Edition

Oh hi. It's been a minute, hasn't it? Sorry for the lack of posts on here. I'm happy to say it's because I've been doing a lot of writing elsewhere, although I certainly don't want this blog to die. Where else can I blab about my favorite classic rock bands, silent movies, and TV shows?Continue reading “Monday Night Feels: The Who Edition”
