A New Twin Peaks Book Of Essay's Coming 2013

Fan Phenomena: Twin Peaks (Intellect Books - Fan Phenomena)(use this link to order) One of the best things that has happened to us at the Red Room Podcast is that we are going to be published in an upcoming Twin Peaks Book.  Last year Josh and I co-wrote an essay about Fire Walk With Me for the Fan Phenomena Book Series.  This book will contain several essay's about Twin Peaks.  We asked if we could write about the movie because both of us believe the answers for Twin Peaks the series are found in the feature film.  We discuss several topics that we have never spoken of in our blogs or podcasts and we won't spill the beans on what we wrote here either.  We want you to enjoy the book when it is released in 2013.  The publishers have just started a Facebook page for the series.  Their newest book is on Marilyn Monroe so most of their page is about that.    We will let everyone know when the book is coming out and we hope to have the publishers on our podcast to discuss all the essay's and the genesis of the book.  They were very open to letting us write what we want so I am very excited to read the other essay's as well.  I think this will be a collection from the fans, by the fans, for the fans.

On a personal level this truly is a dream come true for me.  I have always wanted to be a published author and have been writing for years, mostly for myself.  I also have been a crazy Twin Peaks fan since it aired in 1990.  Now in some small, small way, I get to add to the world of Twin Peaks.  Not only am I published but it is on one of my favorite topics. I am doubly grateful. Fan Phenomena: Twin Peaks (Intellect Books - Fan Phenomena)Use this link to order

The Red Room Podcast: Happy 1 Year Anniversary

One year ago today, Josh and I sent the Red Room Podcast Pilot episode out into the world of podcasts.  We had 2 downloads almost immediately.  In a few days we were up to 10.  It has now been downloaded 568 times.  We have had a total of 20,000 all time downloads for all the episodes combined and over 13,000 blog hits.  That is bigger than either of us could ever have dreamed.  We have connected with Dodai Stewart, Mischa from the Twin Peaks Archive, recorded a crossover episode with the Twin Peaks Podcast.  We have connected with a rabid group of Moonlighting fans.  We have rallied a group of disgruntled Harry’s Law fans.   We met Sherilynn Fenn and asked her for an interview. (Still waiting on that one.)  We brought on a Correspondent in Renee to cover award shows.  And our Face book page hit 100 likes by Mark Frost himself.  We have been retweeted by Ben Folds which gave us our biggest Blog day ever.  A year ago, neither of us had ever seen The Wire.  Now, our Wire podcasts are downloaded on a daily basis.  We like to think (there is no evidence to back it up) that we were the very people that inspired David Simon to say he was sick of people reviewing his show season by season. A great highlight for me has been being able to get out some of my long running theories about how writers handle series relationships.  I have been screaming about my Dave and Maddie theory for over 20 years.  Now I write about it.  I love covering The Newsroom and Downton Abbey.  It has been fun watching as new television springs up fulfilling needs we didn’t know we had.  I love that in some small, small way, we have not only reflected Twin Peaks, but have become a small part of it.  Here for the first time, I can announce that Josh and I wrote an essay about Fire Walk With Me that is going to be published.  Twin Peak’s Fans are going to love it.  It covers an interesting theory that I know I have never read before.  But we can’t talk about it yet.  That is for year 2.  We also have recorded an amazing interview that will be coming up as well.

Thank you so much to everyone who liked our link, retweeted us, commented or shot us an email.  (To the best of my knowledge no one has ever shot us an email.  Our email is as empty as a Video Rental Store.)  If people like you didn’t re post us on Face book or twitter, we would still only have two downloads a week.  I think we average around 350 per podcast.  That has been the greatest gift.  We love TV.  We believe it to be art.  It must be studied because it truly does reflect where our society is and where it has been.  Thank you everyone.  We truly love getting to do this and we hope you have enjoyed some of our commentary.   And as Josh would say, “Keep watching Keep Listening.”

Thank you.
