I can’t believe it.. Daft Punk’s calling it quits. Has it really been nearly 30 years? Daft Punk released a video today called “Epilogue”, showcasing the pair in the desert. One flips a switch on the other’s back, who walks away and then later explodes….
Today marks the 30th Anniversary of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. Goodness, what a strange and wild show. The original show can be found on just every streaming network, and a marathon of 2017’s Twin Peaks: The Return is on Showtime (as well as the individual episodes On Demand). If you’ve never seen Twin Peaks, now is a good a time to start.
It seems fitting to share “She’s Gone Away” off of 2016’s Not The Actual Events album by Nine Inch Nails, or as they’re introduced, “The Nine Inch Nails”. Twin Peaks: The Return showcased the band in Episode 8 – “Gotta Light” and canonized the band in Twin Peaks Lore. This version of the band included Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, Mariqueen Maandig Reznor (of the Reznors’ side project How to Destroy Angels) on vocals, Queen of the Stone Age’s Joey Castillo on drums, Alessandro Cortini on Keyboards, and Robin Finck on Guitar.
Additionally, if you’re looking to get an idea of Twin Peaks (or happen to get lost along the way), there’s a great primer for both series over at Through the Shattered Lens. As I never watched the show in it’s entirety the first time it came out (I saw a few episodes here and there), the recap was a nice way to catch up and learn about it all.
