16th Anniversary of Laura Palmers Death

On Saturday Febuary 24th 1990 Laura Palmer (1972-1990), homecoming queen of Twin Peaks High School in Washington state, was brutally raped and murdered. Laura's death was the story triggering event for the cult television series Twin Peaks and was also featured in that series prequal movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. If you intend to journey into the world of Twin Peaks I highly recommend that you watch the series first as the movie will spoil your fun in figuring out who the murder was. Laura Palmer is still the best known role for actress Sheryl Lee (who is married to Neil Diamonds son Jesse), although until the Twin Peaks movie she was only seen as a corpse or in photos, such as her senior photo shown here which was used as the background still for the closing credits of most episodes of the show. Twin Peaks was the creation of film genius David Lynch who is driving me crazy with the repeated delays in the release of his next film INLAND EMPIRE.

I sure wish they'd put season 2 and the American version of the pilot out on DVD already.
