It's no longer unusual for vintage silent films to be shown with live music provided by a pianist, organist or even an orchestra. Occasionally, enterprising presenters host screenings of classic sound films with on-site orchestral backing: “West Side Story” was shown that way in 2011 at the Hollywood Bowl to accompaniment provided by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. It's rare, however, for a cult TV classic to get that kind of treatment, but Brooklyn-based electronic music duo Silent Drape Runners will take a stab at Thursday, Nov. 15, creating a new soundtrack for the premiere episode of David Lynch's ground-breaking 1990s mystery series “Twin Peaks,” replacing the signature music by composer Angelo Badalamenti and prominently featuring singer Julee Cruise.

When David Lynch talks, in that naive but demanding surrealist Boy Scout way of his, Angelo Badalamenti listens--and, within moments, usually has the beginning of a melody in mind.

The 25 best L.A. films of the last 25 years "Los ANGELES isn't a real city," people have said, "it just plays one on camera." It was a clever line once upon a time, but all that has changed. Los Angeles is the most complicated community in America -- make no mistake, it is a community -- and over the last 25 years, it has been both celebrated and savaged on the big screen with amazing efficacy. Damaged souls and flawless weather, canyon love and beach city menace, homeboys and credit card girls, freeways and fedoras, power lines and palm trees . . . again and again, moviegoers all over the world have sat in the dark and stared up at our Los Angeles, even if it was one populated by corrupt cops or a jabbering cartoon rabbit.

* * 1/2 Cocteau Twins, "Milk & Kisses," Capitol After eight years, this arty Scottish trio finally embraced song structures in the 1990 album "Heaven or Las Vegas," where its lushly sedate, impressionistic sounds took surprisingly concrete forms. Two albums later, they're still exploring the parameters of song structure, fluttering across a richly textured soundscape that often suggests Angelo Badalamenti's "Twin Peaks" work with the gloom removed.

Jerry Bittle, 53, creator of the syndicated comic strips "Shirley and Son" and "Geech," died Tuesday of a heart attack while on a scuba-diving vacation in Honduras. "Shirley and Son," a thoughtful look at life after divorce, appears in 75 newspapers worldwide, including The Times. "Geech" appears in more than 175 newspapers. Both strips are syndicated by United Media. The son of a barber, Bittle was born in Wichita, Kan.

I don't understand a phenomenon in film soundtracks. At least two 1990 movies use classical music in just about all the major scenes, but the audience is led to believe that the man whose name is under the "music by" credit wrote it all. In "Die Hard II," I was hard pressed to hear any "music by" Michael Kamen (who wrote such an eloquent score for "The Bay Boy"). Though the credits could lead one to think Kamen wrote it, "Finlandia" by Jean Sibelius predominates (and its stark, icy mood works quite well for the wintry film)

Actress Hattie Winston has her most widespread visibility as the feisty nurse Margaret in the Ted Danson sitcom "Becker." But like so many other TV actors, her roots are in the stage and musical theater, where she was an Obie Award-winning actress and a founding member of the Negro Ensemble Company.

Ani DiFranco, who spices her concerts with insightful, often off-the-cuff comments, will release her first live album, the two-CD set "Living on the Clip," in April. The collection was culled from shows performed over the past 1 1/2 years, with four songs that have not appeared on past albums. The Buffalo indie phenom is also planning for a new studio album in the fall. . . .
