Back When The Oneders Stole Our Hearts: Links You Have to See

Today’s links have an overarching musical theme (and then, of course, there’s the requisite unrelated George R.R. Martin link). From fake bands brought to life by filmmakers to a real band a certain director is trying to resuscitate, to Michael Cera setting his aloof cutesiness to song, there’s plenty here to keep you occupied, although you might not want to actually listen to all of it. … Read More

Striking, Strange Portraits of California Trailer Park Residents

Photographer David Waldorf once captured a rare portrait of David Lynch in his private sanctuary, the “think room.” There’s certainly something Lynchian about his photos of trailer park residents in Sonoma, California.

By blowing apart the typical small-town myths of ’50s Americana with lost dead girls, dorky FBI agents, and trouble with a capital T, Lynch (and Frost, I guess, but you only remember Lynch) haunted our dreams with the show’s indelible images. And it’s lingered — nearly every year we get a Twin Peaks imitator of sort, whether it’s The Killing, Pretty Little LiarsVeronica Mars, or countless others. Fox’s Wayward Pines, due later this year, is nearly a Twin Peaks rip-off, with straitlaced secret service agent Matt Dillon finding nothing but weirdness and trees in a small town with a very big crime. … Read More
