In case you haven’t heard Twin Peaks, one of the most critically acclaimed and influential television shows of all time, is returning to the small screen after a twenty-five year hiatus.
Series’ creators David Lynch and Mark Frost have teamed up with Showtime to bring audiences eighteen new episodes, including a two-hour premiere, which will debut Sunday, May 21.
While producers have been tight-lipped about the new season’s storyline, it has been revealed that the series will take place after the second season’s cliffhanger finale and focus on Agent Cooper’s odyssey back to the sleepy Pacific Northwest logging town of Twin Peaks.
It has also been reported that a mix of big name actors, rock superstars, and Lynch veterans will be joining the ensemble cast to bring the beloved series back to life.
The Urban Dictionary’s top definition of fandom is, “The community that surrounds a tv show/movie/book etc. Fanfiction writers, artists, poets, and cosplayers are all members of that fandom” (by Brianne August 08, 2004). The second definition is, “A cult that will destroy your life” (by TodayWasSoup March 16, 2013). I can relate to #2.
My house is a hotbed and breeding ground for fanatical attachments. Doctor Who, Sherlock, Harry Potter, Transformers, Walking Dead, Minions, and Legos all compete for space, time, and disposable income within my 4-person family unit.
Fandoms, like children, demand constant feeding.
That can become exhausting (finding the next great site or Youtube video) and expensive (buying the next great collectible). Where do you turn when you must indulge your passion, but you don’t want to spend more or you aren’t sure what else is out there?
At the library, you can feed your interest (some might call it obsession, but I wouldn't) for FREE! We have the movies, tv shows, music, comics, videogames and book series you crave.
I have long been a fan of Zelda games, having beaten some multiple times. With each new game, I continue to find myself further engrossed in the mystique and intrigue that the world of Hyrule always embodied. It's long been a world filled with unique characters, elaborate stories, and inventive use of items going well beyond just simple weapons.
So when Nintendo announced The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild a few years back, I could not wait to get my hands on it.
DPPL now offers the game in both Nintendo Switch or Wii U formats.
Now that I've had some time to play through the game for myself, here are my thoughts for those of you still on the fence.
My name is Ami and I’m an anime addict.
Addiction can be a good thing or a bad thing.
Depends on what, right?
And I have absolutely no shame in admitting that yes.... I have a problem.
An AWESOME one.
