#atozchallenge: B is for Billy…

03 Apr

Today, the second outing in my second month of daily posting, takes the form of an update to a previous post, namely my involvement with The Woolhouse Boys and our collective mission to bring the timeless style of John Justice Wheeler‘s knitwear to the masses.

For those of you who are still confused and didn’t click that helpful link back there, here’s a brief recap;
The Woolhouse Boys are a humorous Facebook group who have taken to Photoshopping the aforementioned woollen garment (worn by Zane’s character in Twin Peaks, Jack Wheeler) into as many scenes in the show as possible and into David Lynch movies in general, (along with an increasingly wide-ranging number of other shows and movies) mainly for our own childish entertainment, but with the ultimate aim of attracting some sort of endorsement from Mr Zane himself.

To this end, we’ve been spreading the woolly word, via the lovely Tumblr feed and on the official @Woolhouseboys Twitter, where new season Twin Peaks cast member, Amy Shiels has already registered her support for our cause.
Such is the dedication of our Founding Weavers, to spreading the Good Word of the Wool, that one of them is even in the process of having a replica sweater made and it is this that finally provoked the reaction we were hoping for.

The guys who run the Twitter account have been doing their best to lure John Justice Wheeler into the Woolhouse and, much to our delight, it was one of Billy’s own tweets which gave them the chance they needed. 

Below is the series of tweets which warmed our woolly hearts, beginning with the first time somebody alerted him to the whole Woolhouse phenomenon…

…followed by the one which confirmed that that The Sweater used in the original series was indeed his dad’s and prompted the obvious question…

…to which Billy Zane (yes, that one, the ACTUAL Billy Zane) replied…

…and then the ultimate accolade for the loyal knitters and their labour of love:

How about that for an endorsement, not bad, eh?

Fingers are still firmly crossed in the Woolhouse, in the hope that Lynch has written a good yarn for Jack to unravel for us in the upcoming Twin Peaks revival, but until then we’ll keep the woollen flag flying and continue in our quest to sweaterise the internet.
