Friday Playlist: Hanging Out With Laura Palmer

Music for when the owls are not what they seem.

Everybody in Twin Peaks loved Laura Palmer. She was the sweetest, most popular girl in school. But the day her dead body was found, things were discovered about Laura. She wasn’t the person everyone thought she was.

    I just finished watching Twin Peaks, and I thought to myself “There’s probably some good articles on Rookie, this evening.”

    I’m loving all these twin peaks themed posts lately….
    Laura Palmer the enigma, she always reminded me that mystery was important.

    This is awesome, and I really feel like I need to watch Twin Peaks now ha.

    On a (not) totally unrelated note, Tavi’s on Upworthy!

    I love it when I hear about Rookie or Rookie people in places other than Rookie!!

        Scooby has a dream exactly like Dale Cooper, with the same red curtains, zig zag floors, and the little red suit man.

      That is exactly what I thought!!! At last, a fellow Bastille fan!
