Hotline Online

The Hotline Bling music video from Drake has a lot of people losing their shit. Everyone is making fun of Drake for how he dances, but personally, I love it. I think it's totally great when people are, like, fully and unabashedly themselves, you know? The video has inspired lots of new memes and weird videos, which are my favorite things about life (obviously things are going great for me). So I've collected my favorite videos and memes, plus the original, too! So yeah, here's my list. Suck it, nerds!

The Original:

Bernie Sanders(???):

Drake on me (please):

Drake the Pokémon Master:

Tina Beltcher is always ready:

Peanuts style.

Drizzy has always been in Twin Peaks.

For Avatar fans.

And for 2003 Runescape fans!

Finally, my personal fave: Ready to rave?

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 from—on the so-called reg—live 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.

“Twin Peaks” On the Big Screen

Watching anything created by the dark and dreary David Lynch is enough to send you on the trip of a lifetime, filled with mind-numbing disorientation and many sleepless nights. Cue the former ABC television series "Twin Peaks," an equally disturbing visual spectacle when compared to Lynch's cult films Blue Velvet or Mulholland Dr. The series hasn't been on the air in 20 years, but luckily for you, The Kosmos (1715 Fifth Street NW) has been showing the complete first season on the big screen. Catch the season's gritty conclusion at 7 p.m. tonight for $5. Just don't plan on getting any shut eye that night. For more, visit www.thekosmos.org.
