I was supposed to have a nice evening yesterday with my classmates, it was sunny and over +20 degrees, and my holiday had started. Instead I was feeling quite ill and went home to lie down, and woke up shaking and vomiting. It seems to have settled now - at least I hope so. But I need people to feel sorry for me!

Wow, I think I’m one the few around here who actually watched the original broadcast of Twin Peaks on ABC.

You and me then Trunkyo! Smile
I believe Twin Peaks was the first U.S produced series to be aired in North America and Europe (and perhaps other continents) at the same time. The eagerness to find out who killed Laura Palmer was world wide! Grin

In other news: It’s raining quite heavy. Time for a cup of coffee and my Umberto Eco novel. I’ll sit on the deck and listen to the rain on the roof. Ooh I love vacation time.

Yes I’m Finnish and the positive waves can’t at least hurt, thanks Tongue.

My waves are soothing and healing in the most gentle way. Hyvää Joulua! (One of the few things I can say in Finnish. Not very season appropriate, but still… Wink )

Your storm front is coming this way. I’m going to go to Helsinki and see Paris, Je T’aime in the Audiovisual Archives’ movie theatre. Hope there’s no blackout or anything Cool

Some politicians in the Northern part of Holland want to have the law changed so they can punish the weathermen and women when they make wrong predictions. Sometimes they predict rain when it turns out to be sunny, and that is not good for the restaurants and cafes at the beach. They want to compensate the owners and make the weather people pay for that.

Do they not know the meaning of prediction? A lot of people seem to think they are promises.  Tongue

Gerrit Hiemstra, one of our most well known weatherpersons, allegedly said: “I can only laugh at such a suggestion.”

Lots of happy and healthy thoughts to Millenia!


Concerning Twin Peaks: I watched the first 6 episodes or so when they first aired, and even though they were greatly intriguing, I was FAR too young to comprehend everything fully (I was 9).
I never got around to actually watching the full series when I was older, and the longer it takes, the more I fear it’ll be dated…
Plus it’s the type of David Lynch that requires a certain mindset to watch. I’d have difficulties just popping in the DVD at any random point, I’d have to be in the mood for it, I think…


Concerning the Dutch weather law proposal: I had a good laugh at that. It’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard since a US Senator once proposed to construct all roads downhill to save gas. Smile
I seriously wonder how some people got elected and even re-elected if these are the things they say on a regular basis…

Maybe THAT is exactly why they get elected, to give people a good laugh… Wink

I don’t agree! I mean, that it’s the type of Lynch that takes a certain mindset (well, wathcing anything always takes a certain mindset, but it’s not at all like with his movies, Twin Peaks is quite an easy watch in that sense). In fact, I feel that, comparing to Lynch’s movies, it’s quite an easy watch. It’s it’s not so intensive like the movies tend to be - it’s definitely not so heavy, and it’s got a lot of comedy. And the form of a series gives it a lot more ease that it’s not so focused on just the mystery and all that. (Besides, it’s not always written or directed by Lynch, there’s a whole bunch of writers and directors there (unfortunately, since Lynch and Frost are always clearly the best)).

Of course, that’s just my opinion, but I feel very strongly about it Smile

And it’s not dated! Not at all.

I’d definitely suggest giving it a watching again. If you’ve only seen them when you were 9, I can quite confidently say that it’s going to be a very different show.

I agree that Twin Peaks is not as heavy and difficult as the movies are. It’s still weird but definitely something you can sit down to relax in the evening.
