#atozchallenge: O is for One…

19 Apr

Ok, I missed a day somehow, I don’t know why, so we shall go backwards in the #atozchallenge, to the letter O, where my B to Z of Twin Peaks takes a quick look at the only two “O”s I can think of from the series.

One Eyed Jack’s is a brothel and casino owned by Ben Horne, located a short boat ride away, just over the Canadian border.
Ben also owns the Great Northern Hotel in Twin Peaks and whenever he wants to entertain investors or business associates, he and his brother, Jerry Horne, take a trip across the water to sample the delights “Jack’s” has to offer.

A major part of the main plot concerns the illicit cross border drug trade which centres around One Eyed Jack’s and many strands of the story converge here, so it definitely deserves a place in this list, despite not being an actual character.
The One Armed Man aka “Mike”, aka Philip Gerard is, depending on who you believe, a mild mannered shoe salesman or a supernatural killer’s reformed familiar/nemesis. 

He appears in Cooper’s dream, warning about the danger of “Bob” and claiming to be trying to stop him from killing again.

And he sells shoes.

    this made me chuckle, becaujse i might be the only reader who has never watched twin peaks – or any of the shows from the past 15 or more years! i might as well be remote viewing from another planet!!!

      Oh I don’t think you’re unique by any means, but I would highly recommend you watch it sometime, it’s amazing.

        i don’t know if it’s even an option in ecuador! in fact, even seeing a television is a rare option…

        unless there is a crisis, i don’t miss the television, but the internet works pretty well to keep one updated!

        one day – or week – i’ll have to update and check out the best of the best!

        jajajaja – you are right, but if i’m watching netflix, i wouldn’t be watching birds.. or monkeys in trees… or working on photos or a post or painting!!!!! sigh, so many lovely things to do with each day and night; there are never enough hours in each day.

        presently i’m finishing the timeout for art post and should next update some ebird data but i’m at the earthquake ‘zone’ so the days’ tasks have a more somber tone….

        hope your day is going well! thanks!

        Fair enough, I quite understand.
