Yeah, I guess Twin Peaks and me just don't connect too well after all. A few episodes here and there in the first half up to where Laura Palmer's killer was revealed were intriguing, especially the pilot, but I'm finding probably a good half of the second season way too insanely confusing and boring for my poor brain that misses details in shows too easily sometimes. Of course, my OCD completist self will probably still ride it out for the last 7 episodes anyway.

More comparisons I got at open mic last night: Presidents Of The U.S.A. and "upbeat" Tom Waits (though for the former to work i'd have to lose 4 guitar strings and play every song in E flat, and I'm now thinking I should try to cover the latter in my lowest voice and have the audience join in on assorted percussion just to see what happens). I guess I can add that to previous comparisons Modest Mouse, Roky Erickson of 13th Floor Elevators fame, Ariel Pink, Belle and Sebastian and a few others I'm forgetting at the moment.
