THE SUNDAY SERVING: ‘Twin Peaks’ Pilot Episode

DAILY MUSE | I’ve been finding alot of great TV links over the course of getting my new Macbook set up. One of these links is of the pilot episode of David Lynch’s masterpiece of the surreal, ‘Twin Peaks’. This highly creative, ground breaking series, which lasted a mere two seasons on ABC, revolutionized TV production to follow. It elevated the the overall prodcution quality of TV series, blurring the boundary between cinema and television. It’s quirky style pioneered that of other series to follow including ‘Northern Exposure’, ‘The X- Files’, ‘Six Feet Under’ and ‘Desperate Housewives’. It also pioneered the use of a season long and/or series long plot arc that has come to be commonplace, as in recent series like ’24’ and ‘Lost’. Enjoy!

(Not the best quality video, but still watchable.)

GENERAL UPDATE |For the time being, I wil not be posting daily as I did and I intended when I started this blog. I will try to post a weekly ‘Sunday Serving’ and on occassion a ‘Today’s Muse’ post. Once the summer passes and my life responsibilities attain a better balance I’ll look to return to daily posts.

THE SUNDAY SERVING: The Missing Secrets of Nikola Tesla

DAILY MUSE | Enjoy this intriguing BBC documentary about Nikola Tesla, perhaps humanity’s greatest inventor, much ridiculed, now largely forgotten and overshadowed by others in history.

THE SUNDAY SERVING: Making “Taxi Driver”

DAILY MUSE | Here is an excellent in depth documentary about the making of the film “Taxi Driver”.

(Video in 8 Parts) VIEWER ALERT: Contains strong language and scenes of intense violence. For mature audiences only.

Pieces of Bob

DAILY MUSE | My bosses daughter, Nicole, lives in Philadelphia and works with a creative group that does film, print, advertising etc. They participated this year in the 48 Hour Film Project— a national contest in which teams have only 48 hours to write, produce, film and edit a 5 minute short film. Each team has to incorporate two of the same things: a particular character (this year it was home inspector, Kevin Oman- or something like that) and a particular prop (this year it was lotion).

This is their entry. It’s very clever, funny and well done. I’m amazed that they can pull this entire thing off in 48 hours– must have involved some all nighters. Watch for the lotion and the “K Man”. Nicole did the graphics at the beginning (pretty nifty) and end credits.

VIEWER ALERT | This film is for mature audiences only. It contains Strong Language and (Really Funny) Nudity.

THE SUNDAY SERVING: The Beatles London Rooftop Concert

DAILY MUSE | I thought long and hard about what to feature on today’s Sunday Serving– it being Easter and all. I considered featuring specific content about god, creativity and spirituality. But I do that a lot as it is. I thought that that would actually be too heavy for today. Instead, I thought we needed something different– something spontaneous in nature with a sense of rarity… and surprise, excitement and light. So I’ve decided on this– footage of The Beatles 1969 surprise rooftop appearance which turned out to be their last public performance together. Hope you enjoy it.
