INTRODUCTION

Over the years, I've created different "Path" schedules for ongoing projects including the Journey Through Twin Peaks video series (which you can view on YouTube and Vimeo). I've had varying degrees of success, often depending on an early head start. In this case I tried to frontload time-sensitive material. This page will be continually updated both up top and down below (in red font), to track my progress toward "Part 6" of Journey Through Twin Peaks (which will cover various themes and locations in the third season) - as well as several major endeavors along the way: monthly patron podcasts, more frequent public podcasts, video essays on Citizen Kane, a few final seasons of my Mad Men viewing diary, and a long-delayed update and conclusion for my written Twin Peaks character series begun in 2017.

You can also follow my progress on Twitter threads (I'm currently in this one) which will be active and linked here around the evening of May 7. This video discusses the completion of Journey Part 5, plans for Part 6, how I will tackle my backlog behind the scenes, and what will be published during that time:


My goal is to begin premiering new Journey Through Twin Peaks videos, once all of them have already been completed, around the fifth anniversary of season three's debut or, perhaps, finale (when my podcast coverage of the season concludes). I'd say "See you in 2022" but of course, as this schedule shows, I'll have plenty to share before then. Thanks for your support and appreciation, and I hope you enjoy the ride as well as the destination.

This schedule began on May 18, 2021...
