Reflections of a Fest: Twin Peaks Fest 2016

IMG_1642

The exterior of the Great Northern Hotel (Salish Lodge) and Snoqualmie Falls.

After a sojourn to the Northwest for my first visit to the Twin Peaks Fest several years ago, I wrote up a day-by-day overview of the experience. That summer, I had just spent five months covering the U.S.C. Twin Peaks Retrospective for the Red Room Podcast and wanted to stay immersed in the TP world, so I made the trek to Snoqualmie Falls –– the iconic place of pilgrimage featuring the exterior of the Great Northern Hotel. Like many first-time Fest attendees, I looked forward to seeing the locations and hearing what the celebrities had to say while eating copious amounts of cherry pie at the RR Diner (AKA Twede’s). What keeps me coming back, though, is the community of friends I’ve made over the years through this strange and wonderful world. This Fest seemed particularly significant because of the absence of Catherine Coulson and this being the last Fest before the airing of Season 3. There was a tangible electric vibe in the air for many of us. Things are about to change. For now, we can enjoy the mystery of not knowing where the Twin Peaks story is headed, but by next year, we’ll have some answers and, hopefully, some new questions. The following are my impressions of the 2016 Fest.

John and Kat Evans, Fest Staff and really nice folks

John and Kat Evans, Fest Staff and really nice folks

The Fest Staff and Volunteers: “Every day, once a day, give yourself a present.”

Us Fest goers keep coming back for an array of reasons, but I would be remiss not to give a shout out to the people who 1) kept the Fest alive when most of us were not even making the trek; and 2) still keep the Fest alive by making it small, personable and reminding us that it’s all about the experience of community. Thank you for giving of your time and yourself to the madness. We are truly grateful. A special thank you to Rob and Deanne Lindley, the Fest Organizers, as well as Pam and Glenn Allen, Kat and John Evans, Jared and Robyn Wolfsberger, and the volunteers.

The Celebrities: “Someday my log will have something to say about this.”

Many Fest first-timers and returners come for the unique opportunity to not only see celebrities from the world of Twin Peaks and David Lynch but also for the chance to spend some one-on one time with them, too. The Friday night banquet, the town hall, the movie night and the picnic featured celebrities, including the following:

Charlotte Stewart (Betty Briggs, “Twin Peaks”)

Kimmy Robertson (Lucy Moran, “Twin Peaks”)

Connie Woods (New Girl at One Eyed Jacks, “Twin Peaks”)

Russ Tamblyn (Dr. Lawrence Jacoby, “Twin Peaks”)

Wendy Robie (Nadine Hurley/Butler, “Twin Peaks”)

Jan D’Arcy (Sylvia Horne, “Twin Peaks”)

Mädchen E. Amick, (Shelly Johnson, “Twin Peaks” and “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me”)

Gary Bullock (Sheriff Cable, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me”)

Jonny Leppell (Pierre Tremont/Chalfont, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me”)

Laura Harring (Rita/Camilla, “Mulholland Drive”)

Bonnie Aarons (Bum behind Winkies, “Mulholland Drive”)

Julee Cruise (Singer, Songwriter and Actor)

John Neff (Sound Engineer, Musician and Composer)

Notably absent was Catherine Coulson (the Log Lady/Margaret Lanterman, “Twin Peaks”), who passed away last September 2015. A log was placed in her honor on the table among the celebrity panelists. Coulson would often bring word from David Lynch to the Fest fans. With her passing, Charlotte Stewart has taken on the role of Fest matriarch in bringing the good word from Lynch. Before the Fest, Stewart told Lynch that it was tradition that Catherine gives a message from him. Lynch gave it some thought, and, after several days, relayed the following to Stewart to present to the Fest fans: “Many items have more than one purpose. Even a table or a chair can have more than one purpose.” Got it? Good.

If you’d like to hear more from the celebs, Scott from the Red Room Podcast interviewed several of the celebrities, including Charlotte Stewart, Laura Harring, John Neff, Gary Bullock, John Thorne (author of “The Essential Wrapped in Plastic: Pathways to Twin Peaks”) and Mary Hütter, fan, vendor and editor who edited the trailer for “Blue Bob in Paris,” a documentary of behind the scenes of David Lynch’s one-and-only Blue Bob concert. Also, Twin Peaks Unwrapped featured a podcast with the panel Q&A as well as interviews with some Fest attendees.

I had the honor of interviewing Connie Woods (New Girl at One Eyed Jacks, “Twin Peaks”) about a documentary to bring attention to the fact that “in the state of Ohio it is illegal to rescue any abandoned or orphaned baby deer and that their fate (death) is sealed because of a barbaric law.” On the website about the documentary, www.deerlybeloved.net, Woods wrote, “After hearing about Trooper, a three legged deer that the Ohio Department of Natural Resources was planning on killing because he had been rescued and rehabilitated, I knew I had to do something …. I knew that if I could tell the story of Trooper and his rescuers that I might be able to make a small difference in this world. I learned about a small, but very passionate group of people in Ohio that are putting everything they have into saving these lovely innocent creatures. I’ve watched from afar as they held ‘Barn Sales’ to raise money for their legal fees while trying to have a bill passed that would prevent the ODNR from killing innocent baby deer. Upon hearing about Trooper and these special humans, my friend Sherilyn Fenn was on board immediately to help produce this documentary.” If you’d like to know more and/or support the creation of the documentary, visit the website for “Deerly Beloved: The Saving Trooper Story” and the fundraising page to support this important cause for animal rights.

Costume Contest: “I’m Audrey Horne, and I get what I want!”

The costume contest at the celebrity dinner is a highlight of the Fest. This year’s first-place winner included an exact replica of the iconic Rolling Stone Cover of the beauties of Twin Peaks. Three Fest attendees recreated the look of the cover and each played their role perfectly. This photo does not do it justice. Mädchen Amick even photobombed the ladies. There’s amazing photos and videos out there. Take a gander.

IMG_1772Fest Films: “Where we’re from, the birds sing a pretty song … and there’s always music in the air.”

The Fest features a screening of a Lynch film every year. This year, they screened “Mulholland Drive,” which was extra special because both Laura Harring (Rita/Camilla, “Mulholland Drive”) and Bonnie Aarons (Bum behind Winkies, “Mulholland Drive”) were in attendance. Movie night also featured a live performance by the talented Julee Cruise –– a very special treat for Fest-goers. A special thanks to John Neff who provided audio and sound as well as Glenn Lewis Allen for overseeing the movie night and the short film festival.

This was the second year in a row the Fest included a competitive film festival for Twin Peaks fans. Fans from all over the world submitted their Twin Peaks and David Lynch inspired independent short films. The winners were:

First Place: “Twin Peaks: Rituals and Candlelight” by David Busch

Second Place (tie): “Diane” by Siobhan Shields and “Twin Peaks Memorial” by Mary Hütter

Third Place: “Fire Walk With Me (Japan)” by Katsuhide Yamago

The Fest screened many of the short films, including a movie about the Fest itself. Red Room Podcast co-creator Scott Ryan made a documentary about last year’s Twin Peaks Fest called “A Voyage to Twin Peaks.” Scott’s film is a love letter to the festival folk and all Twin Peaks fans. The documentary captures a precious moment in time –– a time when Catherine Coulson (featured in the film) was still with us. I laughed. I cried. I laughed again. (I laughed at Scott. A lot.) He really captured the magic of the Fest and the reason we all keep coming back. If you haven’t seen it, go to Amazon right now and watch it.

Sunday at Olalie Park: “A nice day for a picnic …”

The picnic in Olalie State Park, the site of many of the scenes from “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me,” was extra special this year with Gary Bullock (Sheriff Cable, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me”) in attendance as Fest-goers reenacted scenes from FWWM, and, of course, an amazing play-by-play guided tour by filmmaker and holder-of-all-Twin-Peaks-knowledge Josh Eisenstadt.

Karaoke Night: “Meet me in the Roadhouse after 9:30.”

The Festival concluded with Karaoke at the Roadhouse with unforgettable performances by Josh Eisenstadt and a spot-on Dorothy Vallens of “Blue Velvet” tribute. I’m not sure we’ll be the same, and I’m pretty sure the Roadhouse staff will not be the same, but something magical happened among the beer and AV equipment that night.

The light fixture at the Great Northern (Salish Lodge) went full Lynchian during the Fest. Electricity!

The light fixture at the Great Northern (Salish Lodge) went full Lynchian during the Fest. Electricity!

Something Lynchian this way comes: “It is happening again.”

Several Fests later, I’ve realized the Fest is less about seeing the celebrities and much more about the community of the fans. There is an acceptance of the eccentric among the Fest goers. They are a diverse and extremely creative group.

It was an honor to see old friends and meet new. I had some amazing conversations with John Thorne (original co-creator of Wrapped in Plastic magazine and author of “The Essential Wrapped in Plastic: Pathways to Twin Peaks”) and Mya McBriar, who runs the Twin Peaks Fanatic blog. I laughed until my gut hurt with Scott and his lovely wife, who are good friends.

The Fest provided me a way to connect with incredible fellow writers like John Thorne of “The Essential Wrapped in Plastic,” Brad Dukes of “Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks” and David Bushman, who wrote “Twin Peaks FAQ” with Arthur Smith. There are so many fantastic men writing about Twin Peaks, and I admire their work. I’m working on my own book (warning: selfish plug) in which I will highlight the women who are contributing to the dialogue of Twin Peaks. I’m in the process of interviewing and profiling women who are inspired by the show and writing about it or producing art inspired by it. The show’s given so many women, including myself, an opportunity to explore their own complex and creative nature. I want to celebrate that. I want their voices to inspire and serve as an archive of this special moment in time.

There’s something Lynchian in the atmosphere every time I go to North Bend, and it’s not just about Twede’s miracle cherry pies or the rushing Snoqualmie falls.

The night of the celebrity banquet, a group of us stopped by the Great Northern Hotel (Salish Lodge). I wandered into the lobby and noticed the light fixture went full David Lynch. This was not my first visit to the lobby, and I couldn’t remember the erratic blinking of the lights occurring previously. Later, I asked a staff member if the blinking was meant to be. She said it wasn’t supposed to happen, but the lights were acting strangely lately. It is happening again, my friends.

My first journey to the Fest was about hitting all the marks of participating in the costume contest (Maddy Ferguson), seeing all of the locations, and getting to know some fellow Fest-goers. Some years later, I’ve realized that the Fest is all of these experiences but so much has become more personal … and more private. There is one event I witnessed that I cannot even put into words. In fact, I won’t. It was hauntingly beautiful and sad. I captured a photo. But I didn’t post it anywhere. Last year, Catherine Coulson relayed a message from David Lynch to us in which he said, “We live in a world where there really is no mystery or honoring of mystery anymore … real mystery. I find that personally depressing. I would like to rediscover a world where everyone discovers on their own what real mystery is.” I’m trying, Mr. Lynch. I’m trying.

 

Some lasting impressions …

In the summer of 1990, I had the Twin Peaks Rolling Stone cover hanging on the wall of my bedroom. Somehow 26 years later I got to spend a wonderful hour chatting with Sherilyn Fenn. Maybe I’m Audrey Horne and I get what I want? Sherilyn is an extremely open interviewee. She was honest, funny and charming. We talk about Wild At Heart, Boxing Helena, Gilmore Girls, and a little thing called Twin Peaks. We discuss Audrey, cooper and what it is like to go to the Twin Peaks Festival. You even get a small teaser about season 3. She has recently written a children’s book, which will be available from this link.

‘Game of Thrones’ Season Six Satisfies

Photos via HBO

Photos via HBO

“Game of Thrones” season six provided much-anticipated answers and sweet revenge. This is the first season not culled directly from the books because George R.R. Martin didn’t complete “The Winds of Winter” in time. Because the writers did not have a novel to adapt, they were forced to find their own way through season six, using Martin’s notes and a broad story outline. The writers brewed up a tale that served up vengeance and justice in equal measure, and they did it in a way that Martin typically does not.

It was satisfying for the fandom to experience revenge against extremely villainous characters, but George R.R. Martin’s storytelling is successful precisely because he doesn’t adhere to the usual Hollywood tropes. In his own stories, the “good guy” doesn’t always win. In fact, the “good guy” is difficult to discern. Did season six sacrifice George R.R. Martin’s complex and often maddening approach to storytelling instead give us a simpler but emotionally rewarding Hollywood experience? And do we care if it did?

SPOILER ALERT: OK, if you haven’t taken a gander at season six, or any of “Game of Thrones,” now is the time to click away, my friend. You are fair warned.

This season paid off for the fans in multiple ways. First of all, winter is finally freakin’ here already (only took six seasons!). The writers wrapped up several storylines including the High Sparrow’s religious reign of terror and the fate of Queen Margaery Tyrell and King Tommen. The Queen Mother (Dowager?) Cersei Lannister lit up the Sept leading to the tragic fulfillment of the prophesied death of her final child. King Tommen commits suicidal defenestration in the Red Keep after watching his wife, the queen, consumed by wildfire and his mother’s revenge. The mother has no mercy.

arya-stark-1920A lost Arya Stark finally accepts her name and her destiny after defeating her nemesis waif, waving “so long” to Jaqen H’ghar and Braavos and hightailing it back to her homeland to practice some needlepoint on the neck of Walder Frey in revenge for killing her brother and her mother, among others. The girl has no mercy.

john-snow-1920Jon Snow is resurrected (those Internet rumors were true!) by the Lord of Light’s crazy red magic through the vessel of Melisandre, who is revealed to be a bit more geriatric than she’s led us to believe. Jon and Sansa Stark go to battle against Ramsay Bolton on the grounds of their home Winterfell in what might be one of the greatest battle scenes on television or film. As dying and dead bodies crush Jon and his fellow foot soldier Wildlings, Lord Baelish (Littlefinger) rides in with the cavalry thanks to Sansa Stark’s preplanning. Bolton is defeated, captured and sentenced to death by dog as Sansa Stark looks on. Sansa definitely has no mercy.

daenarys-1920Daenerys Targaryen defeats the slavers of Slaver’s Bay (now Dragon’s Bay) with three dragons and an army of raging Dothraki. She allies with the Greyjoys and they embark on their journey west. Finally, she’s got her ships, her army and is headed west with the Iron Throne in sight.

ramsay-1920A great deal went down this season. By the end of season six, several storylines that had been hanging on for some time were wrapped up, which seemed very un-Game-of-Thrones-esque. However, the revenge upon characters that had committed acts ranging from torture (Ramsay Bolton) to annoyance (the waif whom Arya defeats and, perhaps, the Sparrow) felt really good. Cersei Lannister’s face as she watched the Sept burn was pure schadenfreude. And when she lifts that goblet of wine to take a sip and toast to the demise of her enemies … well, let’s just say many of us would like to do the same. And, of course, the most satisfying revenge tale involved Sansa Stark feeding Ramsay Bolton’s face to his own dogs –– a gruesome scene but poetic considering Bolton forced his hounds on his own baby brother and young step-mother, and, not to mention, the cruelty he heaped on Sansa and Theon Greyjoy, among others. It was good to see him go. Good riddance to a cruel, and really a one-dimensional, character.

hodor-1920In addition to the revenge plot lines, the story of Hodor and Jon Snow presented some satisfying surprises. In episode five, “The Door,” it is revealed that Hodor’s name, the word he mouths as his mantra, comes from one of the greatest acts of heroism a character commits on this show: Meera Reed yells to Hodor to “Hold the door!” against the onslaught of the White Walkers as she and Bran are escaping their clutches. At the same time, Bran is caught in a vision of split-consciousness and wargs into the young Hodor. Young Hodor has a seizure and is able to experience what Bran is experiencing in the present. He hears the phrase “Hold the door!” It becomes his life mission. It becomes who he is. It’s beautiful storytelling.

bran-stark-1920In the final episode, “The Winds of Winter” (also the name of book six), Bran’s vision of Eddard Stark’s quest to save his sister Lyanna from the Tower of Joy, finally comes to fruition when Bran is able to enter the Tower with Eddard who finds his sister has just given birth, is dying, and whispers her last request to her brother. We finally get confirmation that Lyanna’s baby is Jon Snow, who is both a Stark and a Targaryan. This revelation sets up an interesting dynamic regarding who has the right to the Iron Throne in season seven.

Although many storylines were wrapped up a little too satisfyingly in season six, several plotlines are set up well for some promising conflicts in season seven. Here are some lingering questions for the next season, which airs on HBO in 2017.

When and how will Jon Snow learn of his real lineage? How will this affect his quest for the Iron Throne and his relationship to Daenerys Targaryen? When will Daenerys and her ragtag fleet of ships, former slaves, Dothraki, Iron Island folk and dragons reach Westeros? Will Ser Jorah Mormont find a cure for greyscale and return to save the day? Is Tyrion a Targaryon, too? Will Tyrion Lannister end up leading them all?

When Jon Snow is hailed as the king at the end of the season, everyone is standing except for Lord Baelish (Littlefinger) and Sansa Stark. Has Stansa got a taste of the Iron Throne? We know Lord Baelish does. Kings Landing is a bit of a mess right now, and there are several contenders for the throne. And, after all, chaos is a ladder …

Will Davos Seaworth ever get revenge on Melisandre for the death of Shireen, Stannis Bartheon’s daughter, who was burned at the stake as a sacrifice to the Lord of Light? Will Melisandre play Rasputin to another ruler –– perhaps Euron Greyjoy?

What will Jaimie Lannister, the Kingslayer who slayed Aerys Targaryen (the “Mad King”) because he was going to torch King’s Landing with wildfire, do now that his own sister (and true love) has essentially committed the very act he was trying to prevent? Will he join his sister or become the Queenslayer? Jaimie has already proven the lengths he will go for Cersei, including the defenestration of Bran Stark. The things one does for love …

Who is going to be the evil villain in season seven? All roads lead to Cersei Lannister, but perhaps Euron Greyjoy of the Iron Islands is a contender. He murdered his brother, after all. “What is dead may never die but rises again harder and stronger.” Melisandre is heading south –– perhaps the Lord of Light has found a new pretender to prey upon?

Will the White Walkers discover a way beyond the wall, penetrating the magical protection that Benjen Stark describes?

petyr-baelish-1920Season six was satisfyingly vengeful because so many villains met their end, but it seemed like the writers were following fandom’s wish list in writing all of the beats of revenge and including a slew of deus ex machina rescues including Brienne of Tarth’s timely rescue of Sansa and Theon as they escape the clutches of Ramsay Bolton; Benjen Stark’s rescue of Bran and Meera as they flee from White Walkers; and Lord Baelish (Littefinger) riding in at the exact moment when all hope is lost for Jon and his soldiers as Ramsay Bolton is crushing them on the grounds of Winterfell. And, in a show that is known for killing off its beloved characters, this season resurrected two –– Jon Snow and The Hound.

While it was pleasurable to experience the deaths of so many who had it coming, the storytelling didn’t follow George R.R. Martin’s usual form of not giving us what is expected. Sometimes in life there is no justice. But, damn, in GOT justice feels really good at this point. And season six set up some spectacular scenarios for season seven, providing more questions to the answers it served up so easily. But, is it really George R.R. Martin’s story anymore? The TV writers have now taken the wheel, and fans will need to wait for the upcoming book “Winds of Winter” to see how Martin’s personal tale turns out.

But, ultimately, the question we all want to know the answer to is –– will Samwell Tarly read ALL the books in the Citadel library?
