The "Twin Peaks" section includes a brief description of the newsgroup! -------------------- There is also a Dutch book written by members of the Dutch TP fan club (see question P3 for details on the club): ++++++++++ The title of the book is simply: "Vademecum" [ me.cum n, pl vade mecums [L, go with me] (1629) 1: a book for ready reference: manual 2: something regularly carried about by a person] The authors are members of Ninetyblue's Peaks Experience (as the Dutch fan club was called back then): William de Bruijn, Rob van Erkelens, and Mirjam S. Vosmeer. The publisher is: Amber. The CIP data of the book: Vademecum Vademecum Twin Peaks / Peaks Experience. - Amsterdam: Amber ISBN 90-5093-194-4 NUGI 300 Trefw.: romans;oorspronkelijk. (c)1992 Peaks Experience/Ninetyblue en De Boekerij bv, Amsterdam The cover of the book (paperback btw, not hard cover) is a closeup of a piece of wood. Rubbing that part of the cover where the pages are held together causes a perfume to be released which smells like the juices of the Douglas Fir (on the cover it says: 'Rub your fingertips over the cover and smell the juices of the Douglas Fir!', but then in Dutch, of couse). The whole book is written in Dutch, there is no English translation available. This is a list of all the chapters, it should give you some idea what the book is about: - Preface - Welcome to Twin Peaks - Have F.U.N.: About David Lynch's universe, about his work and about the man himself - A Policeman's Dream: About the donut - The Evil in These Woods: Dream and archetype, television and fairy tales - Deliver the Message: A page from Margaret's diary, found on Old Logging Road, written by a fan club member - A Large and Interesting Place: Twin Peaks, the story - For My Girlfriend: Hawk's poem - The Owls Are Not What They Seem: About the mysticism in Twin Peaks - Do Your Palms Ever Itch?: A TP-inspired story by Mirjam - Not Necessarily A Straight Line: About Sherlock Holmes and Dale Cooper - People Come To Me And Tell Me Their Stories: About Harold Smith - We Lived Among People: About the 'visible' battle between good and evil - The Magician Longs To See: About BOB's poem - Laura Had Secrets: About Laura and the links toward Invitation to Love - It's Not Really A Place, It's A Feeling: An analysis of Twin Peaks - Heba, I Want To Cook For You: A story inspired by Jerry Horne - The Evil That Men Do: About BOB - The Queen Must Die: About Windom Earle's poem - Twenty Five Years Later: A short story on how it might have been... - Deep In The Woods: Details, references and addiction (about references to other movies and the Twin Peaks phenomenon) - Places To Go And People To See: Encyclopedia (names of all characters and a short description of them) This is what it says on the back cover: "The unprecedentedly popular Twin Peaks series, the cult series of the nineties, a revolution in the realms of soap, not only has been able to attract a lot of viewers, but also has brought people into the state of utmost confusion. "Plot, religious and mystical references, complex symbolism, bizarre visual imagery and complex relationships between characters guarantee that quite a lot of viewers will follow the series with utmost devotion and concentration. "In this book, three passionate viewers put forward their fascination for the series in investigative essays as well as in humoristic intermezzos. The authors have united themselves in the Peaks Experience, the organization which invented the Twin Peaks Info-call-in-line and wrote: 'In much the same way as the charting of a newly discovered country is indispensable, so was the creation of a Twin Peaks vademecum'." So, that should give you an idea of what the book is about, a thorough analysis of Twin Peaks in its every aspect. Even for those who have been following for the last couple of years the book will provide them with some new ideas, some new perspectives. For those who are still oblivious to the deeper realms of the series, this book is a must. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with a course in Dutch ;-) ++++++++++ There is also a German book on Lynch: ++++++++++ From: Ray Privett <rcp3761@is2.NYU.EDU> Subject: Lynch books: Seesslen's DAVID LYNCH AND HIS FILM Seesslen, Georg. _David Lynch und Seine Film_.

There is not one in the US at this time. A number of them existed, but have since dissolved. Probably the most well-known was Citizens Opposing the Offing of Peaks (COOP), which led a campaign to lobby ABC to continue the series. A number of people ordered T-shirts from COOP, which were never delivered after the series ended. -------------------- There is a Dutch TP fan club: ++++++++++ Starting out in '91. we published a newsletter. The last newsletter was, I believe, no. 6, in which we offered a magazine "Lynchburg Chronicles", that replaces the newsletter.

TOP of section ------------------------------------------------------------ P6. Where can I get a copy of the song sung by the lounge singer in the Red Room in the final episode? The singer is "the legendary" Jimmy Scott, a jazz singer now enjoying a revived career, partially due to being "rediscovered" by David Lynch! The song, written by David Lynch, is called "Under the Sycamore Trees" and appears on the FWWM soundtrack (see question P2). TOP of section ------------------------------------------------------------ P7. Is that the actor who played BOB in the Soundgarden music video of "Black Hole Sun"? No. Although the scene may have been inspired by Twin Peaks, the actor is not the one who played BOB in the series (Frank Silva). Be sure to notice the other references to Lynch's work in this video, including: - The garden with bright colors and white fence ("Blue Velvet" beginning) - Woman with red lipstick all over her face (Marietta in "Wild At Heart") - The static TV screen (beginning of FWWM) - And doesn't the Black Hole Sun itself resemble a giant donut?
