I don’t know how I feel about video documentation of me going batshit in the front row right there but I would very much like it to be this night again, specifically the moment when Usher walked out to join the Afghan Whigs on stage and everybody in the Music Hall of Williamsburg had a collective heart attack.

I am directly behind Marisa as she goes batshit. I am going batshit on the inside.

Not quite what I’d highlight now, but I guess it’s all still true.

Who killed Mr. Bones?

The Illicit Drug Anti-Proliferation Act (better known as the RAVE Act) holds event/venue owners liable for drug use by their patrons. The intention: get venues to discourage drug use. The reality: venue owners are prevented from taking safety measures. All this does is make drug use at big events less safe.

Last year, a 20-year-old took MDMA at an EDM event and died of heat stroke. Her mother has launched a campaign to amend the law and allow venues to take safety measures, hopefully preventing more deaths.

halphillips said: Top 5 Twin Peaks characters other than Cooper that you hope return for season 3:

connorratliff:

I mean, my first impulse when you eliminated Cooper from my options is to go entirely FBI:

1. Denise Bryson

2. Albert Rosenfield

3. Gordon Cole

4. Chester Desmond

5. Sam Stanley

But that’s ridiculously limiting, isn’t it?  Not that I don’t wish for all of them (and Phillip Jeffries) to return in some form or another, but that’s really just my way of saying how much I miss COOP.

I also am tempted to name Pete Martell, Major Briggs and BOB, in tribute to the fact that those characters WOULD be contenders for my Top 5 if the actors weren’t, sadly, deceased now.

So, who do I really want? I don’t know, Hal.  It’s hard to answer. I’m going to give you a very thoughtful and real Top 5, although you could probably swap out any of the FBI characters I’ve already listed for any of these, and I’d be happy.

1. The Man From Another Place

2. Leland Palmer

3. The Log Lady 

4. Josie Packard

5. Judy Swain

Josie Packard makes the cut not because she’s a Top 5 character but because her character’s final appearance is, in my opinion, the weirdest thing to EVER happen on Twin Peaks, which means it is the weirdest thing to ever happen on any TV show, ever.

I want Leland to appear because Ray Wise is perhaps the best actor on Peaks who isn’t Kyle MacLachlan, and he’s a real trooper who has always been proud to be a part of it. Also, since Frank Silva is gone, I think there is a chance that Leland Palmer could end up filling that creepy otherworldly void a little, maybe?

The Log Lady and The Man From Another Place are the most iconic Peaks characters, they have to be in it.  I’d throw in The Giant, for good measure. I just looked up the old man who played The Elderly Room Service Waiter, and I guess it shouldn’t be surprising to learn that he died very soon after Peaks ended. (Part of me was weirdly hoping that that guy was younger than he appeared and maybe he was still around.)

You may be wondering who the character of Judy Swain is and why I want her to return, but a quick Google search will reveal why I would like to see this obscure one-time character who featured in part of the notorious “Little Nicky” subplot come back to Twin Peaks

Good answer.

Here’s mine. I’m leaving Cooper out because he’s a gimme, I’m leaving out actors who’ve died, and I’m expanding my list to 10:

  1. Harry Truman (I know, not the most exciting character, but given his proximity to Cooper, he feels almost as indispensable)
  2. Leland Palmer
  3. Audrey Horne
  4. Log Lady
  5. Albert Rosenfield
  6. Ben Horne
  7. Man From Another Place
  8. The Giant
  9. Mike (one-armed Mike, not high school Mike)
  10. Lucy Moran

Order’s up for debate; I’m bad at ordering things. And I could probably replace someone with Andy. Also Annie Blackburn and Phillip Jeffries, but really just for plot reasons.

…[some] may not remember what made Iran-Contra such an extraordinary scandal. The Reagan administration “raised money privately” by selling weapons to a sworn enemy of the United States. Why? Because it wanted to fund an illegal war in Nicaragua. And when I say “illegal war,” I mean that quite literally—Congress told the Reagan administration, in no uncertain terms, that Reagan could not send money to the Contras. Period. The Reagan administration, unrestrained by laws and the Constitution, did so anyway, and much of the president’s national security team ended up under indictment.

more.

Reagan knew everything. However, I bet this Time magazine piece doesn’t get into the juiciest part of Iran-Contra, which is that in the 1980s the CIA put into operation a crack cocaine pipeline to import narcotics from Central and South America and distribute it in US inner cities. This is not a “conspiracy theory”, this is a documented conspiracy, most rigorously researched and reported by Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Gary Webb, whose series in the San Jose Mercury News and subsequent book “Dark Alliance” literally got him killed. To me, that’s the story of Iran-Contra: not that Reagan sold weapons to Iran, but that the US government imported and sold crack to Black America, as part of an arms and drugs trade which funded war in the Third World and which devastated lives and filled prisons in the USA.

Never forgot.
