Yay, Eric! Twin Peaks is my 2nd favorite TV show of all time (2nd only to Buffy and only slightly ahead of VM, of course!)!!

I had totally forgotten about \'The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer!!\' I also had the book about Agent Cooper\'s tapes/autobiography, or whatever. I\'ve lost those books over the years ... I SO need to get new copies of them!!

And stop hating on my Alex (Albrecht) - not all of us are film snobs like you guys!!! :-P

Hopefully my schedule will permit me to co-host CS again soon!
