Ah, Twin Peaks. What could’ve been an ever-obscure, early ‘90s throwback has held its cultural ground through DVD releases, intellectual discussions on sites like PopMatters, and fan-made YouTube videos like this one. That and the fact that David Lynch made it.
Considering how many plot threads the show had going on in its short, two-season run, its pretty amazing the man going by “MC Chris” managed to fit most of them in there. With all these characters and scenes referenced at such a breakneck pace, you kind of have to sit back and admire everything Twin Peaks had to offer. The lyrics are hilarious, and the beat set to the original theme is “damn fine”. Does anyone else think it sounds like Aziz Ansari on Autotune?
