"Diane, what you are about to hear is deeply disturbing..."
-- Special Agent Dale Cooper, "Diane...": The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper
It is happening again...My co-host with the most Xan Sprouse and I are back with a new episode of Ghostwood: The Twin Peaks Podcast! This time, we review the 1990 Simon & Schuster Audio book "Diane..." - The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper, performed by Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper and set during the events of Twin Peaks Season 1 and the Season 2 premiere.
In our latest episode, Xan and I discuss things like Xan's recent trip to Spain, Xan getting the 100-year-old Phantom of the Spanish Flu, the first Twin Peaks season being Josie-centric, picturing Laura Dern as Diane Evans listening to Cooper's tapes, Kyle MacLachlan getting nominated for a Grammy, Henry Winkler and the Ron Howard movie Night Shift, remembering our first iPods, Xan as a walking & talking Simpsons quote machine, wondering why you would rent-to-own a pocket cassette recorder, Xan as Kim Carnes, wondering if everyone in the Blue Rose Task Force is expected to wear black suits, the disposition of Cooper's worldly goods, the vanishing roadside diners, Cooper geeking out about finding an "R" under Laura Palmer's fingernail, wondering why Cooper's recording stops just as he holds up a small box of chocolate bunnies, wondering who exactly was the mysterious "J" in Laura's diary, Cooper trying to solve JFK's assassination, Twin Peaks breaking ground with fishes in percolators, Canadian geese being total dicks, Cooper needing a cold shower after finding Audrey naked in his bed, Leo Johnson killing Waldo the myna bird, wondering whatever happened to Eric Da Re, Donna Heyward being a total jerk to Dr. Jacoby and Harold Smith, the presence of Nichelle Nichols, our mutual love of Tron and Tron: Legacy, and more!
