Twin Peaks obsessives such as myself are rejoicing at the news that a newly remastered Blu-Ray version of the show has been released and is available on Amazon for purchase. Twin Peaks The Entire Mystery includes just about everything connected to the groundbreaking show: The perfect, shoulda stopped while they were ahead Season 1, Season 2 (aka The Season Frost and Lynch Lost Interest, Then Came Back At The Last Possible Second). It also includes the 1992 movie prequel Fire Walk With Me. According to this article on vulture.com, there’s an additional 90 minutes of footage from the movie that helps it fit better into the overall story. Plus some behind-the-scenes goodies and long lost additions and new interviews with Lynch, Kyle MacLachlan, Mädchen Amick, Ray Wise, Sheryl Lee, and others.
The Dumb Starbucks episode of Nathan For You finally aired on Comedy Central last nite. When it was being filmed a few months ago it was all anybody in the media could talk about for at least 3 days. Wild speculation about what or who was behind the stunt occupied everyone’s mind and ebay was flooded with Dumb Starbucks paraphernalia before it was finally unmasked as a stunt for the television show. How did it turn out?
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple weeks, Kim Kardashian is currently winning the free app game with Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. This addictive app lets anyone with an iphone/android phone (sorry amazon fire) recreate Kim’s meteoric rise to fame using Kim’s own life as a template, only with you in the Kim K/neophyte role and Kim herself in the Paris Hilton/established mentor role.

Here’s a couple more reasons why Kim Kardashian should be the next winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant. Read More
CBS’s annual summer schedule filler, Big Brother, has only been on the air for about 3 weeks and has taken its dominant position as the main occupier of my free time.

Maybe it’s the terrorist plotline, maybe it’s that Jack is a operating as a lone wolf, maybe it’s that I have a visceral reaction to William Devane and Kim Raver, or that since they’re in London, Edgar and CTU can’t establish a Hard Perimeter, but I’m having a hard time mustering up the give-a-shit about Bauer and Co.

I’d been holding off watching the final 2 episodes of Orange is the New Black Season 2, but finally had to give in given all the Emmy noms the cast garnered this week. I’d even overheard the surprise ending, but not the details. On top of that, I stayed away from additonal spoilers online so any further secrets didn’t leak out. I’m glad I did.
