    Fire Walk With Me: The Dark Heart of Twin Peaks

    Fire Walk With Me: The Dark Heart of Twin Peaks

    Twin Peaks is a TV show famous for many things; Special Agent Cooper and his love of black coffee and cherry pie, eccentric towns people including a lady who carries and communicates with a wooden log, a love of visual non sequiturs and jazz, and being a melding of almost every popular drama genre and it's conventions. Possibly it's most discussed features are its supernatural elements, most frightfully embodied by the demonic entity Killer BOB. Said to be from a alternate dimension of evil known as The Black Lodge, BOB possesses human souls and inhabits their bodies to commit acts of rape and murder, seemingly feeding off the pain, fear and sorrow he creates. It's said that BOB has possessed local lawyer Leland Palmer, and while under his control, had Leland commit the multiple acts of murder; in one scene BOB takes full control, even speaking as himself through Leland. This is backed up by MIKE, another spirit who possesses travelling shoe salesman Philip Gerard, who seems to confirm their status as demons that inhabit people. While the presentation of these elements is visually surreal and oblique, and multiple spiritual and logical suppositions are discussed within the show, the commonly accepted interpretation of BOB is a literal one; he may not be from our plane of existence, but he does exist.

    Me, My Dad and 'Late Night with David Letterman'

    Me, My Dad and 'Late Night with David Letterman'

    Maybe David Letterman is following the comedic party line by deferring all praise but his farewell only fuels my suspicion that he has no idea how much he means to us out here who live for late night talk shows. The laughter a given, its delivery amounts to an incalculable debt that I wish I could pay in full to ease the self-doubt and diminish the burden he seems to carry.

    Why I Love Animal Crossing

    Why I Love Animal Crossing

    The Nintendo Switch launched on 3rd March 2017, ushering a new start and era for Nintendo. Out of all their IP's (Intellectual Property) Animal Crossing is one of the safest bets to make a return. Coupled with the fact that we've been without a new title since 2013 it's about time Animal Crossing makes a comeback. It's a franchise that sells by the bucket-loads and has become one of Nintendo's flagship franchises in breaking the so called mold between the hobbyist gamer and the casual gamer. But why do I and others love it so much? Well that's what I'm here to talk about, though I hopefully won't ramble on as much as Blathers.

    10 Ways Marvel Can Be Even Better

    Thanks to the upcoming Netflix drama Iron Fist, I have Marvel on my mind. Unfortunately, if early buzz is to be trusted, it will be one of the studio's weaker entries.
