Welcome to Diane… #21
This week Rosie, Adam and Mark get tangled up in Twin Peaks episode 19, also known as The Black Widow.
When Dale Cooper handed in his badge and gun he, and we, lost more than his earthly raiment and authority. Twin Peaks lost a lightning rod, and this week on Diane storms strike haphazardly in the fashion of everyday magic.
Ben Horne raises a monolith, Little Nicky is plagued by persistent random misfortune, and Lana Milford is bewitching. Our monitors are pointed at deep space but perhaps the messages we’ve been intercepting are coming from right here in the woods.
She guardeth the Abyss. And in her is a perfect purity of that which is above, yet she is sent as the Redeemer to them that are below. For there is no other way into the Supernal mystery but through her and the Beast on which she rideth.

Welcome to Diane… #20
This week we cover Twin Peaks episode 18, also known as Masked Ball. As we find ourselves deep in season two the narrative structure seems to have collapsed
But isn’t this the fate of all structures?
Join us as we channel the disembodied voice of Windom Earle and insist that THE KING MUST DIE. Ben Horne considers his fallen empire, Mayor Milford mumbles his way off stage, and Dale Cooper can no longer be constrained by the governing authorities of the FBI. Dear listener, it’s time to focus out beyond the edge of the board.
Thou mayest go to the mountain
Whereon three temples stand,
And see there this affair.
And shouldst thou not bathe thoroughly
The Wedding may work thy bane.
Bane comes to him who faileth here
Let him beware who is too light.
Welcome to the bit of the webpage where, after the wedding, we curiously seek engagement. We are very lucky to have found such a warm and welcoming listener community, and your ears alone are more than enough for us to take much joy in…
BUT! If you’d like to spend a few moments showing your appreciation in then please like, rate, review or otherwise big us up. Join the legion of like a half-a-dozen kickass Dianiacs who have left funky reviews of our silly thoughts on iTunes.
Here’s the links where you can best get in to it: subscribe to Diane on iTunes (US or UK), or follow us on Twitter and Tumblr. Find brand new episodes of Diane every Wednesday on Libsyn and this here website, known to initiates as Mindless Ones dot com.

Three days later: Welcome to Diane… #19.
In this episode Rosie, Bob and Mark explore the unfamiliar territory that is the seventeenth chapter of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks, A Dispute Between Brothers. Beware the ides of Twin Peaks, beware Mordred’s promise, beware the Baba-Yaga’s welcome, and beware all close encounters of the firs kind*.
The great beast has fled – for now – and so we enter the wilderness unafraid. Catherine found her way through the dark night of the woods, Norma’s witch is finally banished, and the Bookhouse Boys crossed into forbidden lands where the cops go clothed in red. Ladies and gentlemen, would you care to join us for an incredibly pleasant evening of night fishing? The choice is yours, but remember, if you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper.
The “alien” is as much a herald from the dark of the universe as it is a signal from the depths of our own minds.
Begging time again: dear listeners, if you love, like or loathe our friend Diane, please do us a big favour and spare a moment to click, like, share, comment and review what we’re doing. If you could see the impact of delight that even a short review has on our little faces then you wouldn’t hesitate. Of course, you mustn’t feel you have to help us out with a few seconds of digital interaction: whether you do or not Diane will always remain both FREE and RAD.
Here’s the rest of it: You can subscribe to Diane on iTunes (US or UK), or follow us on Twitter and Tumblr. Find brand new episodes of Diane every Wednesday on Libsyn and here on the website the men of old called Mindless Ones dot com.
