Lost in the Movies: TWIN PEAKS CONVERSATIONS #20 w/ 25 Years Later publisher Andrew Grevas (YouTube & extended PATREON)

TWIN PEAKS CONVERSATIONS #20 w/ 25 Years Later publisher Andrew Grevas (YouTube & extended PATREON)

Andrew Grevas and his prolific fan analysis website 25 Years Later burst onto the scene in 2017, months before the launch of season three, as if fully formed overnight. In fact, Andrew's passion for Twin Peaks and his desire to write - and publish writing - about media more generally had been developing over several decades. To call his exposure to Peaks "precocious" would be an understatement; until I spoke to him this month, I'd never met anyone younger than me who had watched the series when it originally aired, but now I have. At five (!) years old, Andrew was exposed to the dark, spooky, enticing world created by David Lynch and Mark Frost. He remained haunted by the barely-remembered iconography of the show into adulthood, when he re-discovered the episodes after watching the film for the first time. No wonder one of the themes that fascinates him is the passage of time, a subject we discuss more extensively in the back part of this podcast. First we survey his own history with Peaks and then the formation of his website after years of writing about Lost and other subjects. Recently he's spun the core site off into several other loosely-affiliated components with different topics: TV Obsessive, Film Obsessive, and Horror Obsessive. He describes that process here as well.

For the $5/month tier on my Patreon, we explore the following questions among many others... What does the fan community (as well as the world onscreen) tell us about the years gone by? What role do boomers, Gen X, and millennials play as both viewers and contributors to Peaks? How do Parts 8 and 17 play with history and nostalgia? For over an hour, we continue the discussion in this exclusive venue, situating Twin Peaks and particularly The Return in a larger context.
