alt.tv.twin-peaks has fallen behind rec.arts.tv! It's now only the 23rd most
prolific group on the net, two slots behind rec.arts.tv. I wonder why
it's been slowing down? I guess people finally figured out what
that magican kid said in French, and what the lyrics to Mairzy Doates are. :)
Approximately 25000 people read alt.tv.twin-peaks according to this list.
The secret diary of Laura Palmer is the best selling trade paperback in
the nation right now. The ratings could be alot better though.
They are revealing who killed Laura during ratings sweeps week. The
producers insist that this is a coincidence... suuuuuuuure. :)
