i decided to have a complete dork-out and watch twin peaks from beginning to end (excluding the fucking pilot!! which i want!!). i made this mix to keep me in that eerie, haunted feeling while i'm getting ready for work, and driving to and from, so i can have a twin peaks spectacular. none of this is from or inspired by twin peaks - i use too much angelo/fire walk with me in my mixes already. this is simply a mix that gives the same mood/feeling that i get from watching twin peaks. so nerd out with me. and enjoy.
