Creskoff will recur as Melba Locklear, a Sarasota native who was a child model for catalogs and print campaigns throughout the southeast.

The Neverending Story: Has Hollywood’s Reboot Obsession Gone Too Far?

The Neverending Story: Has Hollywood’s Reboot Obsession Gone Too Far?
What is dead may never die.

This is a religious oath recited often by the people of the Iron Islands on Game of Thrones. It is also increasingly the guiding ethos of Hollywood development, where any familiar title, no matter how sacrosanct it might have once seemed, is ripe for a sequel, a prequel, a reboot or all of the above.

‘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

“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
