Twin Peaks! Jan Hooks! Phil Hartman!

What is the connection between the SNL skit “Love Is a Dream” and cult TV classic Twin Peaks? I put that question to the so-called fans of TP twice and NOBODY got it — probably because “fans” want the goodies fed to them with a spoon and nobody wants the work it takes encountering all-of-a-piece genuine art, which Twin Peaks definitely is (except for episode 20, the one directed by Steve my ex-friend). To get the answer, you have to think like artist David Lynch, with his idiosyncratic but revealing paths and connections. Knowing what I know, does this enlarge the scope of the TV show for me…
