Happy birthday to Denise Dufort! :D

Denise is an drummer of incredible power who pounds the skins with the conviction of the best metal and rock drummers. One listen to their classic 80s recordings or live recordings from the same period is ample evidence to her incredible ability.

56 years old, she was a part of Girlschool from 1978 to today (and the band has never been inactive).

Keep rockin’, Denise!

TMI Tuesday: Childhood Edition

(sent to me by callmebrycelee)

1. Fave Saturday morning cartoon?
I liked the Warner Brothers cartoons (Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, etc.) and the Pink Panther cartoons. I also loved a couple of the Sid and Marty Croft shows (H.R. Puffinstuff and Land of the Lost)

2. Fave after school snack?
I usually sat in front of the TV with a box of breakfast cereal when I got home from school: Frosted Flakes, Chex cereal, Team Flakes (which are no longer made)

3. Nap-time, yea or nay?
Yes, I can nap on command for as long (or short) as is optimum. It wasn’t a formal nap-time, though.

4. Parents’ preferred method of discipline for you?
Depends on what I did. Don’t want to talk about it actually. Bad question.

5. First gaming system you received?
WTF is a gaming system? We had Monopoly and a chess and checkers set. My brother got an Atari 2600 when I was in junior high.

6. Fave toy?
I didn’t really have one.

7. Fave book?
I didn’t really have an interest in reading until I was in junior high.

8. Fave Disney movie?
I never liked Disney movies. My Saturday afternoons were spent watching old monster and science fiction B-movies on TV, before VCRs and DVDs existed. Universal monster movies, AIP 50s horror/sci fi, and Hammer Horror movies were my Disney.

9. Fave part of the playground?
Swings

10. Fave outdoor activity?
I liked to walk in the woods or ride my bike around the neighborhood.

11. Age you stopped believing in Santa Claus?
I had older siblings, so I never believed in Santa Claus. One of my brothers took a perverse delight in finding my Christmas gifts hidden around the house and showing them to me.

12. Fave childhood vacation?
My family never took vacations. I went to Chicago with my parents to a cousin’s wedding when I was in the fifth grade. That’s as close as I got to a vacation.

13. Food you absolutely hated to eat?
I wasn’t an adventurous eater as a child, so I’d protest anything the least bit out of the ordinary.

14. Childhood fear you have since overcame?
Drawing a blank.

15. Childhood BFF?
A schoolmate named Joe.

Yes, and it was such great music! Angelo Badalamenti’s score still sounds just right — moody and threatening and oddly sexy.

When I rewatched the show a few years back with David, he noted how one piece in particular, the music they use as Laura Palmer’s motif begins almost dirge-like but builds to a high level of soap-opera melodrama. The show was calculating in that it was at once a prime-time soap opera which was spoofing its own genre, and this extended even to its score. And, yes, Audrey’s dance music was very sexy (as were some of the songs sung by Julee Cruise).

Well, I know what music I’ll be listening to for the rest of the day!

Well, that was one of the innovations of Twin Peaks, wasn’t it? Before that, TV music was confined to a catchy theme song and short cues. Twin Peaks had a full score and specific themes for particular characters. That kind of attention to detail still doesn’t exist on major-network television.

The official teaser trailer for the 2016 Twin Peaks return.

Y’know, I gotta love it when an official trailer like this one looks cruder than most fanvids, but, then, it does scream that it’s been touched by the hand of David Lynch, possibly for that fact alone.

It should also be mentioned that the “return” is justified as a crucial scene in the second episode of the first season (which aired in 1990) happens twenty-five years into the future. That time is now, more or less.
