Ten on Tuesday: Twin Peaks
Today's Ten on Tuesday is brought to you by an obscure cult-classic television show from the early 1990's - Twin Peaks. As I mentioned this weekend, we just finished watching both seasons of the show which are available to stream on Netflix. If you're as clueless as I was, Twin Peaks is a fictional town in Washington State where a mysterious darkness seems to seep out of the woods. When homecoming queen Laura Palmer is found murdered, an FBI and local investigation follow. The killer and motivate are not who or what you might suspect. (Though I have to warn you, that last episode? It's a heartbreaker.)
With my evenings freed up from watching the show, I took some time to compile this list of themed products, all available on Etsy. Am I the only one who finds it great that independent artists are still taking the time to make embroidery patterns, greeting cards and coloring books for a show that aired more than a decade ago?
With Valentine's Day, my least favorite of holidays, approaching, I boldly announced to Trevor that we would be celebrating with a Twin Peaks theme. Romantic, I know. At this point, I'm thinking that doughnuts and a damn fine cup of coffee (for him, not me) will be in order. As far as gifts go, I'm having such a hard time choosing between douglas fir exfoliating soap or these pub glasses featuring the silhouettes of Trevor's teenage crush and my own special agent.
Trevor, if you need a hint, I like this shirt more than Dale Cooper likes pie.
