OK, still trying to put down some thoughts on the Twin Peaks finale, but I might as well post it so I can get on with my life.

And it's with mixed feelings. Because I loved season 3 to little pieces, and that fucking ending simply won't leave me alone. So this will get long and not entirely coherent as I try to piece together what The Return and Fire Walk With Me and all that it seems to do, before I try to let it sit for a while and then do a rewatch.

The past dictates the future )

RIP Harry Dean Stanton

Damnit, I didn't need this right in all my feels about the Twin Peaks finale. 91 years is a very good run, but still.

Cool Hand Luke. Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid. Alien. Escape From New York. Red Dawn. Paris, Texas. Repo Man. (Seriously, Repo Man.) Pretty In Pink. Last Temptation of Christ. Wild At Heart. The Straight Story. INLAND EMPIRE. Big Love. The Avengers. Seven Psychopaths. And just a second ago, Twin Peaks. And even in the movies you didn't remember, you'd remember his bit.

Plus a fantastic singer and possibly just the coolest man on the silver screen in the last 50 years. For years, whenver anyone asked me my favourite actor, I'd always say Harry Dean Stanton. Pretty much nobody could ever argue with it.

Thanks, man. You did good.

So apparently the author of My Immortal has come forward and is bringing out a memoir.

In other news, I'm trying to piece together thoughts on the Twin Peaks finale, which was incredible and frustrating and thought-provoking and hilarious and left me a sobbing wreck and ... there'll be a longer post as soon as I get an hour to beat it into readable shape. In the meantime, here are two (spoilery) articles worth reading:
NYT: "We haven't seen that before" - a critics' conversation
Variety: The story ends - forever?
