  1. Idle Thumbs Hiatus

    I'm also almost 100% a lurker here these days. I never was particularly active, or am ever! I still visit the forums frequently. I made five posts this year, three of them in January. Interesting...not exactly magical, though.
  2. The Dancing Thumb (aka: music recommendations)

    I can see the appeal in listening to it drunk. Then again, I also see the appeal in listening to it sober.

    That's really beautiful! Nice warm sound.
  4. Definitely not! I watched it in a public place and had to stifle my laughter pretty hard! Excellent! XD
  5. Oh my gawd, I almost cried tears from laughter when I saw this closeup of the Brennan family portrait!
  6. Making Music. Tunes by Idle Thumbsters

    Only listened to the last two tracks so far, but the last one sticks with me, listened a few times to it already! Pretty and melancholic. ^^
  7. Making Music. Tunes by Idle Thumbsters

    I felt a terrible mix of emotions and like I had to let them out by yelling a lot. Then I listened to the recent remix of Futile Devices by Sufjan Stevens and thought I could cover it, so I did, with some yelling involved.
  8. Making Music. Tunes by Idle Thumbsters

    I can't believe that this thread lay dormant for so long! I had trouble finding it for that reason! Anyway, I matured somewhat as a musician in the last few months, which basically means that I graduated from Audacity. I had some great times with this crazy piece of kit, but it was time to move on. *sigh* I'll miss you, Audacity. But you're a pain in the arse if you want to get serious about things. Soooo, the following are the last two tracks I made with Audacity. I got back to multi-track recording in the first place because I bought an audio interface. As soon as I connected a mic to it the fire was kindled again! First track starts of somewhat quiet, so yes, that's normal. Also, the mixing is non-existent, and there are other issues, but, you know, at some point you just gotta stop or get exhausted. A pain in the arse, like I said. Everyone liked the track whom I showed it to, but also had something to complain about.
  9. While I don't think that the Diane scene was necessarily enough to justify the reveal, I thought it was very strong. I felt very much for her when she told her story, and I don't think the second reveal, that she was a tulpa, lessened the impact of it at all. What does her being a tulpa mean exactly, anyway? I guess tulpa Diane was manifested as a copy of Diane by Mr. C, with additional programming added so she could serve as his puppet. Tulpa Diane's pain was real, because it was her memories she was talking about. That she was struggling against her very being on top of that made the scene even more tragic. The struggle also helped to make her account not appear any less trustworthy. I would prefer if this isn't all we get in regards to the consequences of the rape, but I actually wasn't disappointed because I thought the scene was exceptionally well done. And, looking back, it helped to explain Diane's behavior, which made me feel even more for her. It's a different story with Audrey, though...I still don't see the point. I don't know what it adds to the story that Mr. C raped Audrey in the hospital. Mr. C conceived an evil spawn? Because, sure, like father like son. I don't like that either. We were more witnessing Richard's destruction than getting to know the people whose lifes he destroyed and the consequences the destruction brought. Richard's storyline is the weakest to me by far.
  10. This episode had all the INTENSE feels. Sadly I can't articulate myself very well. But, David Lynch's direction is so overpowering that I'm barely bothered by the shortcomings. It was teased for so long now that Richard is Mr. C's son that you got used to the thought. Still dislike the implication (how behavior is preordained by genetics). That Diane was raped by Mr. C...well, how Diane was portrayed in this scene made it truly heart-wrenching and didn't give off a perverse joy at the gruesomeness of this development in the slightest. So, that scene had me feel really strongly with her, especially when I thought back at how she behaved through the season. And then all the other shit that was going on with her! Crazy! A lot to chew on.
  11. I'll read this thread later. But it occured to me that non-German viewership can't have the privilege of seeing Part 14 before Part 13, with Sky Ticket probably limited to German IP adresses. Oh well...
  12. Holy shit, I started reading the thread, anticipating discussion about the episode I just watched, and instead people mention things I haven't seen. Is this some colluded trolling? But no, it might just be the case that Sky streamed the wrong episode for whatever reason. I presume it to be the next one...well, I wondered about the dialogue line that serves as description, if I missed that. I looked it up, and indeed, I watched Part 14! And I didn't have a clue. I guess this proves Lynch's claim that you could watch these episodes in any order! So, for the impatient, get Sky Ticket and watch the next episode right nooooooow! It's a corker! Now I have to find my way to Part 13...more Twin Peaks for me! I desperately need it anyway.
  13. Not a satisfying episode per se, rather patience testing...on its own it sets up too much and progresses too little. I can't believe that this late in the season the show isn't finished with setting up plotlines. I loved the Audrey scene. Audrey as a middle-aged woman lost the cutesy charm of her younger self, but still talks in a similar manner. It's not nice seeing her like this, but it tracks. Yeah, I also was confused who they were talking about, but, putting aside some specifics of the conversation, I enjoyed the scene. Sarah Palmer's moments were the standouts for me, definitely. Overall, good as a part of a larger whole, but too unsatisfying on its own. The Roadhouse Randos don't replace anything. You cut them out, nothing would be there to replace them (I doubt there are any deleted scenes at all). Sure, the season might be less patience testing as a result. Maybe you speak of your valuable time, and I can't argue with that. We'll probably won't see these women again. These scenes let us listen in on conversations from random residents of Twin Peaks, giving us a taste of mundane happenings in their words. I think that's what they're going for. Not sure what to think of it.
  14. And Tammy's eyeroll to Gordon's comment! XD Yes, this was just an excellent episode from beginning to end. You never know with Lynch... Well, I guess I might have to quibble with the slow slow plot progression, which frustrated at moments. The pacing of the scenes is fine, and was pretty quick this week anyway, but the scenes barely move the plot forward. This is a complaint that won't weigh as much when all of the series is released. Still, this is a TV show, it's released as a TV show, week after week, so I think it's fair to complain about that. But, really, it's a quibble. This was beautiful, powerful, very enjoyable! And I called last week's episode trash.
