Something that intrigued me during the pilot episode of Twin Peaks was
the way that Lynch appeared to be mixing visual elements from the past
and present.  This technique has of course been done in other places,
most notably Terry Gilliam's masterpiece film "Brazil."

Audrey appears to be right out of the 1940's.  Not all of the cars
appear to be right up to date (this is true of most of the world, but
it seemed to be an intentional thing.  note how bobby's car was late
60's/early 70's and his character appears to be a mix of 1950's James
Dean and any generic 1980's psychopath.)

Am I going insane?  Is it all just a wild coincidence or is there
a serious design thing here?
