You smarter gamers with a load of patience avoiding the babbly noise rumor mill sites know who it’s for. But it’s also for anyone else in the “news gathering” trade who dabbles too deeply in third-hand gossip just for attention’s sake and huge traffic rather than do the actual legwork legitimate journalism takes.
Opinions (mine included) and improper speculative analysis aren’t facts, and some sources are only “trusted” because their skin in this game is any attention they can get for themselves so they stay “relevant.” So they yak away daily, knowing full well that the mill wheel often grinds out a few nasty things as it turns on that 24/7 schedule when you hit a slow news day every so often but need to have a story to tell just to get your name in lights somewhere. Boo.
No wonder I woke up feeling weird and nostalgic this morning with a slight headache and a hankering for strong coffee and a slice of pie. It won’t be until 2016 (and hopefully, we all won’t be dead from ebola or nuclear bombs dropped willy-nilly across the landscape), but David Lynch is back on TV and in complete control of his baby. From the press release (read it while I do slow-dwarf dance around the room for a bit):
The groundbreaking television phenomenon, Golden Globe® and Peabody Award-winner TWIN PEAKS will return as a new limited series on SHOWTIME in 2016. Series creators and executive producers David Lynch and Mark Frost will write and produce all nine episodes of the limited series, and Lynch will direct every episode. Set in the present day, TWIN PEAKS will continue the lore of the original series, providing long-awaited answers and a satisfying conclusion for the series’ passionate fan base.
So, yeah. That’s erasing any crappiness that a Monday usually brings around. Yeah, now… about the earth still being here? Well. we’ll work on that. Showtime, you just take care of paying all involved and keeping Lynch happy in his work. I know a certain game director who just had a nice Xbox One exclusive hit is probably a very happy man. Actually, I’d LOVE to see Swery meet Lynch and perhaps collaborate on a project, but let’s get these nine episodes of the new TP out of the way first…
Tick, tock, tick, tock… Hey there, folks. I’m sitting here waiting for a few packages (some games, memory for a PC here I need to upgrade, and a few other cool things), so updating will be less than usual. Boo. I’m working through that Toukiden: The Age of Demons demo I picked up yesterday as I type this (well, my Vita is next to me waiting for me to finish this update and get back to it), so it’s not as if I’m staring at a wall or anything. Okay, back in a bit, hopefully with some more thrilling posts. Or less thrilling. We’ll see…
OK, I’m NOT dead today – just waiting at home with both thumbs stuck somewhere while the cable boxes get switched out/upgraded/whatever, so that’s keeping me away from being online on a higher speed connection. MEANWHILE, my inbox is PACKED with stuff to write about and I’m getting antsy like Sinatra in The Man With The Golden Arm. Which will be a Random Film of the Week if I haven’t done it yet. OK, more waiting… Bleh. Back in a bit (Hopefully, as a ONE post day for me will, as the kids say, SUCK. Or blow (as the kids also say… damn kids…).
