Inspiration: David Lynch – Twin Peaks season 3

David Lynch, the filmmaker, painter, photographer, fine artist, coffee appreciator, and inner peace/meditation foundation founder is a real inspiration.

Later this month (on May 21st for you Peaks freaks, like me), season 3 of Twin Peaks begins which consists of 18 hours of new episodes, picking up from where the TV series left off in 1991 – about 26 years ago!

This new series is quite a feat for anyone to direct (and co-write, with Mark Frost), and more screen time than many directors have for their entires careers! What an accomplishment for David Lynch! And he’s 71 years old, too! Wow, BOB, wow! (Fans of the show will get that BOB reference.)

The date of 26 years ago also makes the prediction of the character of Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks true, when she said words to the effect of: “I’ll see you again in 25 years” – which was when season 3 was being made.

David Lynch has been a source of inspiration to me for many years, in both my creative endeavours and my life in general. So, thank you David Lynch, and I can’t wait to see the new season of Twin Peaks!

Looking at the new Mac Pro, which comes to about $20K Canadian funds when you max it out and get external storage. Why would anyone need such a machine? I’ll tell you why!

The Abyss film is 25 this month!

Wow, was it really 25 years since the amazing film “The Abyss” came out? It must be, as this month marks its 25 anniversary!

I came across a book a while back that was written by one of the editors during the production of the film. It’s called “Life’s Abyss Then You Dive” by Joe Woo Jr. (Great title!)

I read the free sample and so far it’s a fascinating memoir (at least to a filmmaker, sci-fi fan, and somewhat film geek like me), providing a lot of on-set detail and stories about working with James Cameron. Joe has a photo gallery here: http://lifesabyss.com

His ebook is available here: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/422532

I also see it here: http://www.scribd.com/book/219452567/Life-s-Abyss-Then-You-Dive 

I’ll be reading the rest of it on Scribd with my subscription trial! I’m really liking the subscription so far. (Some of my books are on there too, if you are curious!)

And here’s a detailed blog post about the production of The Abyss: http://blogs.virginmedia.com/movies/blogs/making-of-the-abyss

Enjoy,
