‘Twin Peaks’: For $2,000, You Can Own Laura Palmer’s Casket

‘Twin Peaks’: For $2,000, You Can Own Laura Palmer’s Casket
Given the sheer number of costume pieces, props, and other slices of production design that go into the average film/TV production, it’s no surprise that it takes decades for all that memorabilia to become available to the public.

One such opportunity is happening next month, when an upcoming Prop Store auction will see the release of a number of classic series’ set dressing to the highest bidders. Among the wide, insane variety of options are a few items from the original “Twin Peaks” run. The starting bid for Laura Palmer’s casket is $1,000 (the estimate is around double that), but other random items like the signage from the Great Northern Hotel runs a little cheaper.

To begin to summarize the sheer quantity of random items as part of this auction is an impossible task, but some of the items with the highest opening bids are pretty recognizable. An

David Lynch Directs Bugs Crawling on Cheese in Bizarre Short ‘Ant Head’ — Watch
David Lynch has a new short film now streaming online, but viewers creeped out by bugs will probably want to avoid watching it. “Ant Head,” which Lynch debuted at the Festival of Disruption earlier this year, is a 13-minute short film consisting of one shot that depicts a block of cheese in the shape of a head being overtaken by an army of crawling ants. So yes, David Lynch is up to his usual bizarre and baffling tricks.

In Lynch’s own words, “Ant Head” is a “short video featuring my friends the ants along with cheese, etc. and one-and-a-half tracks from the ‘Thought Gang’ album.”

“Thought Gang” is the once-lost album Lynch made with his frequent collaborator and “Twin Peaks” composer Angelo Badalamenti in the mid-1990s. The album is finally being released this month, and to mark the occasion, Lynch and Sacred Bones Records have made “Ant Man

Review: David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti’s ‘Thought Gang’

Review: David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti’s ‘Thought Gang’
For more than a quarter century, filmmaker David Lynch and composer Angelo Badalamenti have been sitting on some of the most compellingly bizarre creations either had worked on — even by David Lynch’s standards. Now they’ve finally released Thought Gang, a project that has only previously surfaced on Lynch’s soundtrack to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and in the backgrounds of his works like Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire. A far cry from the hipster, cool jazz of Twin Peaks or the dreamy pop of their work with singer Julee Cruise,

  • Deadline
DC Universe’s upcoming Swamp Thing series is continuing to cast up, setting Power‘s Andy Bean to play biologist Alec Holland, who in the DC mythology as created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson transforms into the titular creature.

The streaming series, which hails from James Wan’s Atomic Monster in association with Warner Bros Television, is set to premiere in 2019 on the DC Universe digital subscription service.

The plot centers on Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.

David Lynch Releases Long-Awaited Thought Gang Album/Music Video As A Reports Of A New Film Surface

Thought Gang is a band that was created back in the early ‘90s when filmmaker David Lynch and his “Blue Velvet”/”Twin Peaks” composer Angelo Badalamenti decided to work together on a new musical venture. They worked with a variety of musicians and attempted to create something special. Lynch even filmed a music video for one of the tracks, “A Real Indication.” And now, 26 years after the album was recorded, Lynch has finally released the Thought Gang album and the video he directed.

David Lynch on his band: 'Sound like headless chickens on speed!'

The film-maker laughed so hard at the singer’s voice, he gave himself a hernia. David Lynch relives his days in Thought Gang, the band whose music was even wilder than his movies

‘It was a grand experiment,” says David Lynch. “But I really don’t know who will appreciate it.” The director is talking about Thought Gang, an esoteric jazz group he put together in the early 1990s, with composer Angelo Badalamenti. Their album is only now being released.

The pair first worked together when Badalamenti scored 1986’s Blue Velvet, but by 1990 their relationship had fully crystallised – and the songs they wrote for Twin Peaks were as engulfing as the fog that swirled through the town in the cult TV show.

David Lynch Possibly Plots Next Film as Angelo Badalamenti Collaboration ‘Thought Gang’ Arrives

It’s entirely possible we’ll never get another long-form moving-image work from David Lynch–though, if you’ll excuse my language, who the fuck knows; more on that in a second–but the artist has kept busy since Laura Palmer screamed all illumination from reality. The last few months alone brought the publication his excellent, thoroughly Lynchian memoir Room to Dream, and it was last week that we were gifted a new(-ish) album from him and maestro Angelo Badalamenti. Recorded in 1992 and recovered from the fallen-through cracks, this self-titled work from their collective, Thought Gang, is no footnote: the alternately smooth and assaultive jazz LP mixes soundscapes befitting its artists with, courtesy Badalamenti, occasional spoken-word segments as thrilling as they are goofy. (Per Lynch: “It’s sort of like jet-fueled jazz in a weird way…but it’s all based on stories. It’s Modern Music.”)

Alfonso Cuarón Loved ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ & Explains What Modern TV Series Have That Films Lack

It appears that Alfonso Cuarón, like many Playlist readers, is a fan of David Lynch, particularly his latest project, the “Twin Peaks” revival that recently aired on Showtime. Speaking with IndieWire, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker opened up about “Twin Peaks,” the medium of TV as a whole.

“I loved ‘Twin Peaks,’” Cuarón said. “I wish more shows were as bold as that.”

But just because the filmmaker fell in love with Lynch’s series doesn’t mean that we’ll see the “Roma” writer-director take another stab at the TV medium anytime soon.

Alfonso Cuarón Fell in Love With ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ While Making ‘Roma’: ‘I Wish More Shows Were Like That’

Alfonso Cuarón Fell in Love With ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’ While Making ‘Roma’: ‘I Wish More Shows Were Like That’
When Alfonso Cuarón was shooting “Roma,” his personal ode to the Mexico City neighborhood where he grew up, he didn’t have much time to watch anything else. But once he started the post-production, he discovered a new obsession: David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks.” Cuarón watched Lynch’s uncompromising Showtime relaunch of the enigmatic show while putting the finishing touches on his own passion project, and he breezed through it. “I loved ‘Twin Peaks,’” Cuarón said in an interview ahead of receiving the Vanguard Award at the 2018 IndieWire Honors. “I wish more shows were as bold as that.”

Cuarón is not exactly a stranger to television production. He directed for the Spanish-language anthology series “La Hora Marcada” early in his career and co-created the short-lived 2014 NBC series “Believe.” However, he has mostly stayed away from the medium even as more filmmakers have been attracted to the range of possibilities it offers up now.
