This is the original map David Lynch drew up of Twin Peaks to sell ABC execs the show’s pilot episode. Its purposefully off-kilter topography reflects the show’s mysterious goings-on. Notes Nigel Holmes in the book Pictorial Maps (via Austin Kleon): The peaks of the title, and the town they name,…
Bizarre videogames are my weakness.

The Master of the Flying Guillotine
This movie was pretty awesome. The Flying Guillotine supposedly was a real ancient Chinese weapon too.
When I was on the bus Tuesday, I sat and daydreamed as I normally do, staring out the window. Sights ive seen hundreds of times on my daily commute cruised by. I was just continuously soaking up the view and storing it away. I had been feeling down lately and I take my commute as a method to ease my mind.
Then I heard a muffled sobbing beneath the creaks and din of the bus’s engine. There was a young blind man, one I have seen many times and offered my assistance to in crossing the street at school, there sitting at the front of the bus. Whether his emotion was brought on by loneliness, misery or some sort of happening, I dont know.
Instantly I entered a state of agony. I felt like such a jackass, I wanted desperately to do something to comfort him, but some lady and her kid were seated next to him simply ignoring him. Completely removed from any kind of open compassion. I was sitting a couple rows back, but i felt like I was the only person that noticed.
I can’t imagine what it’s like for him. There I was staring out the window to ease myself, what if I didn’t even have the ability to do that, let alone something as simple as crossing a street by myself.
The bus driver was kind and comforted him, honestly, cheerfully, and even drove the bus.
It must have been a couple days ago when I found myself watching VH1 for some reason. “Top 40 One Hit Wonders of the 90’s” was on, and I swear I must have seen it 5 times over the past year.
Somehow this song slipped by and I heard it for the first time in probably ten years…
Whether or not its a horrible song, It was seared in my brain and its been popping in and out of my head. It really brings me back to the 90’s, back when I had stacks of pogs (yes I did) and bright multicolored clothing.
I used to have this tendency to hate on any band that didnt have at least 5 decent songs, or maybe one good album; I guess out of zealous musical snobbery.
Over the years, Ive pondered that maybe this is the stuff that needs to be embraced. Some of these songs had arguably just as much effect on music as any other single song, and some were even done by normal people like you and me who had a lucky break, not rockstars and the like.
I just accept it for what it is, a catchy tune.
