Have yourself a very Twin Peaks Xmas

I love the internet. You can virtually meet so many fascinating artists, writers, musicians and other creative folks there. Some of the people I learn the most fromon the so-called reglive in Poland, Canada and Mexico. But many of my boss e-acquaintances are stateside.

One of those pals, Laurel Barickman, is the co-founder and lead designer of RECSPEC, an Austin-based design studio. She and her husband, David Milner, are prime movers of Austin's nightlife eye-candy contingent. They do visuals, deejay and create rad flyers. This holiday season, the savvy couple transformed their office space into a Twin Peaks-themed wonderland. We're talking detail here, y'all. Glastonbury Grove-recreatin', Bob-faced and Log Lady-offering ornaments adorn a big, majestic tree. Beneath the One-Eyed Jack's-topped fir, a cherry pie awaits Coop. Leland's getting a golf club. Who'll stumble onto the errant copy of Flesh World? With this level of fantastically weird in the picture, it's not surprising that Barickman grew up in Las Cruces. Check out my fave photos of their psychodramatic Pacific Northwest teevee homage below. Keep on scrollin' to listen to RECSPEC's damn good Twin Peaks/Xmas mix.

Music

Memory, music and stealing Martin Mull’s material

I reveal some embarrassing memories, wax (sort of) poetic about the New Mexico music scene and use way too many proper nouns in my intro column, Dancing About Pueblo Revival Style Architecture. I’m a noise fan, so send me your feedback.

Interview With an Angry Samoan

Gregg Turner is alive and well in Santa Fe, and playing the hits

Gregg Turner is known to most as a founding member of the Angry Samoans, a Los Angeles hardcore band that began in 1978. He is also known, perhaps, to a different slice of the population as a record reviewer for Creem Magazine (1976-1998) where he was noted for his inspired hatchet jobs on the likes of Bon Jovi, The Who and even Iggy Pop.

Fantastic Fest Final

The annual Fantastic Fest film festival is tool place in Austin this week. It’s the largest genre-based film festival in the United States. We sent special correspondent Brennan Foster to hunt down the weirdest films, the coolest parties and the biggest star sightings he could find. Here's his final wrap-up.

The end is here. I look forward to my return. I much prefer Albuquerque’s weather and local breweries. But I’ll keep many good memories of FF2011. Where else can I sit in a theater with friends and genre fans from around the world, order a beer and pizza and enjoy watching an uncircumcised penis undergo a vasectomy procedure?

Winning a major award is said to be a nerve-wracking experience. At the Fantastic Fest, winning is more liver-wrecking. Each recipient must chug a stein full of beer before making an acceptance speech.

It's sweltering. Normally, I would go see a movie and escape the heat--but halfway through a film festival, I need to escape the theater.

Knuckle covers twelve years in a bitter family feud between three Irish traveler clansthe Quinn McDonaghs, Joyces and Nevins. Travelers live on the margins, facing discrimination and poverty. They don’t turn to the law for solutions; problems get sorted with bare knuckle fistfights, sometimes for pots between 30 and 60,000 Euros.

Fantastic Fest Day 2

Lots of good movies get shown at a festival; and then there are those great joys, the ones that leave audiences buzzing. When they're foreign, Hollywood will likely snap up the remake rights.

Let The Right One In, The Chaser, Trollhunter and now this year’s buzzed-about French thriller, Sleepless Night, all got deals with major studios. (The haunting Let The Right One In was first to be remade as Let Me In, filmed in New Mexico.)

It’s the largest genre-based film festival in the United States and was founded in 2005 by Tim League of Alamo Drafthouse and Harry Knowles of Ain’t It Cool News.

Be sure and check back throughout the week for more updates.

Shaking off the smoke from Texas wildfires and roadside rib shacks, I pulled into the South Lamar Alamo Drafthouse parking lot on a hot Thursday for bearded men in black shirts. But meat and heat was the day’s overriding theme.
