You can call me Hal.

You know how sometimes you're in a coffee house and you're reading a book and drinking your coffee and then you start to feel really creeped out and you can't figure out why and then you realise that the Twin Peaks theme song is playing?

It shouldn't be allowed.

I see Bob crouching in my bookshop all the time. Freaks me the hell out.

It probably is him too.

Dude, I love that song! I actually bought the Julee Cruise CD and *all* the songs are like that!

Clearly, you are the most depraved kind of serial killer. Frank will be watching you.

I've never seen Twin Peaks except for that Fire Walk With Me movie. I was... utterly and completely lost. *blinks*

I can imagine! It's incomprehensible without the series. And even then...

I think the main reason I watched it at all was because I was going through a David Bowie phase then. One of these days I'll get around to watching the actual series, I guess. Hrm.

yes. *g* At the massage therapy clinic where I work, we play various cds while massaging. There is one cd I have now hidden -- it's the one with the twin peaks theme, the x-files theme and TUBULAR BELLS!!!! (actually I hid one other cd -- it's 70 minutes of peaceful harbour sounds interrupted occasionally by toots from a terrifying foghorn)

Oh dear god! I'm getting twitchy just imagining. Who thought that creeping terror would be soothing?

As long as you didn't see Bob or the dancing midget, you're probably safe.


But what if Bob saw me?

I saw a guy where I work who looked exactly like Bob - I freaked out and went to hide. He comes in regularly, but he's since cut his hair. I can't work out if it's a cunning disguise or a relief.

It's just to lull you into a false sense of security. But I don't know what you could do about it, so you'll just have to accept your fate.

Gah, I feel creeped out by proxy.

If I have to be, then everyone has to be.

I too used to have customer who looked like Bob. He would always, always gravitate to me for help. Eventually, I just started hiding in the back rather than spending the rest of the day freaked out.

I don't think that is going to stop him...

Bob, no.
The customer? Eventually he stopped coming. The nice thing about working in a college town is a high percentage of annoying customers just move on.

Aw! Everyone else was creeped out too! You have nerves of steel.

One time before breakfast in the lobby of a moderately fancy hotel in London (where I had arrived the previous night, and which is several time zones away from my home) I had just sat down with a newspaper and that totally happened to me. I was already a little jet-lagged. Angelo Badalamenti did not help.

I remember, shortly after Twin Peaks finished airing for the first time in Austria, I got the soundtrack, and once I fell asleep with it on. I woke a couple of hours later, *totally* creeped out (to the music of Audrey's Dance).

I didn't listen to it for quite some time afterward...
