Twin Peaks was a surreal TV series that ran in 1990 and 1991, created by David Lynch and spawned a prequel film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me in 1992. It has occasionally been referenced in Homestar Runner.

[edit] Appearances

  • Strong Sad's Lament — For his post on March 13, 2003, Strong Sad is listening to the "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" Soundtrack.
  • 3 Times Halloween FunjobMarzipan dresses up as The Log Lady, a character from Twin Peaks.
  • Sbemail 150?!? and Email alternate universe — The surreal Coach Z idea, which later appeared as an Easter egg in "alternate universe", is an homage to a famous scene from the show. The background for the scene featured red drapes, and the starring character, Dale Cooper, spills coffee on himself, represented here by Coach Z's streaming hat of coffee. The unusual speech that was used by Homestar Runner in "alternate universe", meanwhile, was the hallmark of the scene; the actors actually spoke their dialogue backwards, and the recording was then played in reverse, so that the words were heard by the audience in their proper order (though they still sounded unusual and contorted, just as Homestar sounds). It seems as though Matt Chapman faked this technique, rather than actually recording his lines backwards. Additionally, the phrase "I'm not at liberty to discuss [...]" is a direct lift from the lines of Major Garland Brigs, a character on Twin Peaks, who is often unable to talk about what he does for a living.
  • Sbemail 150?!?Twin Peaks was co-created by director David Lynch, whom Strong Sad cites as an influence in this toon.
  • DNA Evidence — The opening titles and ending in which Strong Sad laughs maniacally and appears in a window, on a roof, and behind the cleaning supplies is a direct reference to Killer Bob, the mysterious antagonist of Twin Peaks. The character was created because of a happy accident in which crew member Frank Silva was caught in frame during shooting of the pilot, thus explaining the unwieldy positions in which Strong Sad appears.
  • Email underlings — The "Stink's Reach" promo parodies the opening from Twin Peaks.
  • Email fan club (DVD commentary) — Mike Chapman makes reference to the Man From Another Place, a character on Twin Peaks.
