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… #26

Join Rosie, Adam and Bob as they pick at episode 24 of Mark Frost and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, also known as Wounds and Scars.

Dashing Dale Cooper’s game of give and take with Wyndham URL becomes antipositional as the tokens move from hand to hand: Thomas Eckhardt leaves a final piece of his being at the mill. Donna accepts a trinket from a dead doctor. And Dick Tremayne serves up a smorgasbord of quite exquisite fashions.

‘Tis the season to be giving, so let’s talk about The Gift!

What is striking, curious, is that this knot, like that, that I described as Borromean, you should now know why, is a support for thinking…That allows thinking to be written differently.

Ye merry gentlemen and gentlewomen! We here at team Diane would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and bestow upon you the finest boons of love (gold), peace (myrrh) and understanding (Frankenstein). If you feel you would like to get us something in return – no obligation obvs – then all we want for Christmas is a five star iTunes review! Cheers!

Welcome to Diane… #24

SHE’S BACK! This week Rosie, Adam and Bob struggle to the end of the series’ rough patch, discussing the twenty-second episode of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks, sometimes called ‘Masters and Slaves’. The show we all love is here somewhere but it’s like a black film has grown over it.

This week on Diane then, we talk veils.

Windham Earle employs a surrogate, the mists at the Great Northern finally clear, and Evelyn mourns the passing of the wild ride. Work slowly and with care. Everything must be written in a steady, uncompromising hand.

*

In the Heaven World, we look at Reality minus two veils. If I have in my Heaven World a friend whom I love, I see him minus two veils, As I know my friend here below, he and I are both veiled. I loved him when on earth; but when later after death I enter the Heaven World, then I shall see him minus two veils, and he will reveal to me certain attributes of himself.

Hey hey it’s the begging bit: if you like what you hear, do us a super solid and give us five stars on iTunes! Cheers, love you!

The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Welcome to this special mini episode of Diane…!

This week Rosie and Bob give their initial reactions to Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks novel, The Secret History of Twin Peaks. Listener, they liked it!

The whole Diane team will be covering The Secret History in MUCH more depth at some point in early 2017. This is just a first impressions kind of thing.

…And please be warned: in a change to our usual policy there be SPOILERS all over the flipping shop here, so proceed with caution unless you and Twin Peaks are very old and familiar friends.

*

The first case assigned to Major Milford for Grudge was mind altering. It came to him from an oblique angle, and his work on it took place over a three-year period , at the end of which the polar axis of UFO investigation would shift yet again…

 

No desperate begging for reviews and things this week you’ll be pleased to hear. It’s only a minisode after all. Have some admin though:

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.

The best: as in, you lot are. And we would love you to help us out: please  like, rate, review or otherwise make us famous. Cofffee and creamed corn-filled donuts for everyone who reviews us on iTunes.

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.
Keep watch
Inspect thyself
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.

Welcome to Diane… #17.

Rosie, Adam and Mark eat too many sweets and stay up waaaay past bedtime to watch the fifteenth installment of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks, Drive With a Dead Girl.

Naughtiness is afoot, and the theme is mischief. Leland’s dancing on the furniture. Norma’s new dad is betting on the sly, and Catherine Martell toys with Ben’s freedom. She’s a caution, isn’t she?

*

…within the death of an unknown creature, its vanished identity abstracted in terms of the geometry of this vehicle. How much more mysterious would be our own deaths…
