Diane: The Return

May 24th, 2017

Welcome back to Diane.

Join Rosie, Adam and Mark for the first of our reaction shows, where we offer our initial thoughts on Twin Peaks: The Return – Episodes one and two/Parts 1 & 2.

In this episode we try to embitter our excitement with a dash of critical distance, name the worms crawling through the resurrected body of the show, and ask just what it all means for the show’s life-after-life. In doing so, this is Diane, we will of course explore the liminal contours and magickal connections infesting our all-new-all-old favourite show.

Laura kept her promise. It’s been 25 years in the waiting room, but now it feels like the White Lodge is everywhere.

Theme from Diane is by the wonderful Mass Roman of Strangers from Birth. Cheers Mass, you make us what we are.

For the duration of Twin Peaks: The Return, recap episodes of Diane will appear on Tuesday or Wednesday on Libsyn.

Diane is making extra content which you can find on Patreon.

If you like what Diane does and want to say thanks, please head over to iTunes and give her a whopping Five Star Review!

You can chat to Diane here on the old Mindless Ones Dot Com or @dianepodcast.

You can come tumbl with her on tumblr. Please do so. You look nice, she says.

Next week: What’s in the box? Not that box.


Welcome to Diane… #28

Join Rosie, Adam and Bob as they prepare for the end of Mark Frost and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks episode 26. Only a few chapters of our story remain, and it’s time to get set up for the final drama.

Our guy Dick Tremayne gives us a course in oleaginous oenology, Windy Mearle goes arts & crafts, and Bobby is caught callow by word of Mike and Nadine’s super-duper sex life (unload the filth of your minds in the comments below).

Discover the meaning of faded donuts, beauty’s pageantry, and the naughtiness of Mr. Lynch – all and only in Diane 28.

 Plant no tree sooner than the vine.

We’re heading towards the end, Season Three looms and it’s all getting very exciting. If you’re all abuzz too and want to use some of that spare energy productively, bounce on over to iTunes and give us a lovely five star review. To everyone who’s reviewed us so kindly already – thank you so much. It means a lot to us.

You can subscribe to Diane on iTunes (US or UK), and please follow the silliness on Twitter and Tumblr. New Dianes appear Wednesdays on Libsyn - and you can find the whole lot here with the megalomaniacal Mindless Ones.

Welcome to Diane… #27

Join Rosie, Adam and Mark as they gather to discuss episode 25 of Mark Frost and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, sometimes known as On the Wings of Love.

This week on Diane the team talks RRRRROMANCE as our characters seek the blissful union that only a bit of the old in and out can provide. Harry wakes in the arms of a Helmut Newton-style assassin! Gordon goes all Tex Avery over a certain small-town waitress! And Wind’n'Erl searches for his Queen of Hearts…

  When love with one another so
Interinanimates two souls,
  That abler soul, which thence doth flow,
Defects of loneliness controls.
  We then, who are this new soul, know
Of what we are compos’d and made,
  For th’ atomies of which we grow
Are souls, whom no change can invade.

Whether your a brand new Dianiac or long term Dianysian we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for listening to our regular rambles about the cult TV hit of 1990/2017! If you are into our nonsense then all the thanks and attention we need is a five star review on iTunes! Cheers love you!
