Archives: David Lynch

In the last roundabout seven weeks I watched the 29 Twin Peaks´ episodes the first time. The series were aired in 1990/1991 on US TV. You can say first session´s main topic is special agent Dale Cooper´s struggle to find the murderer of Laura Palmer. But as most summaries this doesn´t really hit the varieties of impressions this serial and partial surreal drama offers. Scenes appeared in my dreams, and scared me, but I am still fascinated and unable to put it aside. “I can see half of my life in your face.” Has anyone ever heard such a declaration of love? As a first step to clear up my mind I developed a few questions, kind of multiple choice test. I´d be glad if anyone would join the club. Manafonistas Head Quarter is asked to declare the winner as Manafonistas Mister or Miss Twin Peaks!*
