Comics? Comics? We don’t need those stinking comics!

<ITEM> They’re back, and they just can’t stop telling people that they’re in LOVE! It’s Gary Lactus and The Beast Must Die return from the bearhunt, ripped, randy and raring to podcast. Are you ready for SILENCE!??

<ITEM> Look, I’m not going to waste your time – this is easily the most discursive, digressive, rambly episode in a long while as the boys seem determined to avoid talking about comics. Along the way though they manage to incorporate Lars Von Trier’s Top Cat, The Five Obstructions, Dancer In The Dark, SILENCE to Astonish LIVE at Thought Bubble 2017, David Lynch: The Art Life, Daredevil season 2 (audio version), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (audio), Universal Soldier: Resurrection, Gun Mobiles, Supersonic, Michael Fleischer’s Steve Ditko’s Oasis Comic, SDCC News, Arkham Asylum 2, Dave McKean, Photocopied clocks, Squirrel Girl, Dr Strange, ESCAPE issue 10, the birth of maturity, Stray Bullets, Bernie Mireault’s The Jam, American Splendor, Shade The Changing Girl, Mystery In Space, Captain Victory, Silver Star and a whole rambalicious slew more. Dive in why don’t you, and grab yourself some treasure…

Welcome back to Diane.

Join Rosie, Adam and Mark as they discuss part 11 of Mark Frost and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: The Return.

The sky spins open*, the street spits up its sickness, and a sweet fraternity brings life to the desert.

*So does Bill’s head.

There’s no backup for this.

Theme from Diane is by Mass Roman of Strangers from Birth.

During Twin Peaks: The Return, new episodes of Diane will appear on Libsyn 24 hours after UK broadcast.

Diane is baking extra content, including a video version of this episode, on Patreon. Go chuck a buck buck in the buck buck bucket, bucko!

Or just as welcome, please head over to iTunes and give us one of those fabulous Five Star Reviews. They make us smile like Shelly seeing Red.

You can always get back down to earth with Diane here on Mindless Ones Dot Com or vomit green bile over us in the place where people do that: @dianepodcast.

We even have free cherry pie for everyone on tumblr.

First, an apology that this post is so much later than the first six. Sadly, I had an arthritis flare-up that made it painful for me to type more than a sentence or two at a time, and which also made me too fatigued to even think for more than a week. The perils of chronic illness.

Still, my hands are working – more or less – now, so let’s have a look at the most-loved story (or to hear many people talk, the only loved story) of season twenty-two.
