‘Twin Peaks’ Is Returning in 2016!

Twin Peaks opening shot credits
Every Twin Peaks fan’s wildest fantasy came true today, and it all started with simultaneous, twin tweets a few days ago by the show’s co-creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost:


Those tweets reference the line at 3:33 into the dream sequence from episode 2:


The hashtag is from the same episode:

The Internet then immediately remembered this quote:

“When two separate events occur simultaneously pertaining to the same object of inquiry we must always pay strict attention!” Special Agent Dale Cooper

And so, after letting that sit over the weekend, Showtime announced today that they have picked up a limited, nine episode revival of the series. It will air and take place in 2016, which is 25 years after the end of the 1991 series, per what Laura Palmer says 40 seconds into this clip from the series finale:

All nine episodes will be written, produced and directed by the co-creators. And it looks like Kyle MacLachlan has already agreed to reprise the role of Agent Cooper:


Until 2016, here are all of the mentions of pie and coffee in the entire series:

How Not To Explain ‘A Song Of Ice And Fire’ In 2 minutes

For those not cool/nerdy enough, A Song of Ice And Fire is the name of the book series of which A Game of Thrones is the first. (The name probably comes from Norse mythology, in which the first being, Ymir, was created in the void between ice and fire. There are lots of other Norse elements in the books, like long winterdragons, frost giants, giant wolvesflaming swords and magical trees. There’s even a blog about all this.) ANYWAY, Slacktory does a really funny job “trying” to explain the whole book series in two minutes:

@SavedYouAClick, Fighting Clickbait On Twitter

An eyecatching link on a website which encourages people to read on. It is often paid for by the advertiser (“Paid” click bait) or generates income based on the number of clicks.

-from Urban Dictionary

Clickbait headlines are quite possibly the worst thing to have happened to the Internet, ever. And like a virus, it keeps spreading, thanks to the success of terrible, terrible websites like Upworthy.

To fight this scourge, a Twitter guy (it’s gotta be a guy, right?) named @SavedYouAClick started reading a bunch of a clickbait articles and then posting awesomely sarcastic summaries of what you’d find in the article, were you to take the bait. Examples: (which are better understood by starting to read them at the RT, and then reading the beginning part)
