Here’s a centerfold from People magazine that shows all of the residents and players during the first season of Twin Peaks.

For the hard-core fan this is just a fun “mapping” of all of the residents that we loved – for those initiates, it’s a nice pictograph to make sense of all of the involvements, interactions, relationships and motives.

EXPERIENCE THE REAL TWIN PEAKS

Before Twin Peaks ever aired on television I was a huge fan. I knew that anything David Lynch created would be a coolly weird event.
So the excitement and anticipation of viewing the first episode was like a twisted Christmas morning – and the present was Twin Peaks!

This begins my first entry into the surreal world of Twin Peaks that turned into a real life experience.

I had never been a true “fan”, as in fanatic, of any TV show, movie, sports team, actor or actress.  Even my Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll History that I lived through during the ’60s and ’70s of bands that I loved never achieved what I would consider as “fandom”, as it was more of a lifestyle.
But with Twin Peaks I really got involved, I loved that show so much that I wanted to live there – and since I couldn’t, I did the next best thing – I visited Twin Peaks and stayed at the Great Northern / Salish Lodge for about three days in 1993 and visited all of the places that I had come to know and love on the series.

Twin Peaks Archives will relate my real-life adventures in a surreal world where the TV series and real life converged into a quasi-experience thanks to the weird and wonderful vision of David Lynch.

TWIN PEAKS . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ROADHOUSE / COLONIAL INN

EXPERIENCE THE REAL TWIN PEAKS!

The Roadhouse had a special mystery; it was a place where secrets were confided and clandestine meetings took place in an environment of cool-ass hip rock music and local revelry.
You never knew who would be there or what their benign, sinister or life-saving plans were.
Like all Lynchian abodes, the Roadhouse emitted an ambiance of deep dark secrets that were absorbed into the wood walls from years of Twin Peaks’ locals, transients and visitors revealing their innermost desires, virtues and malicious intent.

From the 1993 photo above, if you walked around the right corner of the building you would see the entrance to the Colonial Inn. The left side of the Colonial Inn was used in the series as the front of the Roadhouse and appeared pretty much the same as when we visited.

Looking at the photo now makes me realize the remarkable way Lynch was able to take simple everyday innocent structures and just by his involvement turn them into ominous yet intriguing places. This, of course, is Lynch’s magic and what made this trip to Twin Peaks irresistible.

Next up; a series of rare and interesting Twin Peaks artifacts.

THE REAL TWIN PEAKS!

Here’s another view of the opening shot of the series, you can see the road at the bottom right. It was a misty hazy day when we left Twin Peaks and the sun cast a pastel yellow in the sky. 

It was sad to leave this place that I could easily call home, but we had reservations in Vancouver and had to hit the road.

Suffice it to say that this was a highly memorable surreal “trip” that enriched my deep love for the series and I am so thankful to have made the pilgrimage right off the tail end of the series’ unfortunate ending.

But this is not the end, it is only the beginning, I have amassed a decent amount of Twin Peaks memorabilia and rare items to archive on this site, so please come back and visit the Surreal and the Real of the Twin Peaks World.
