Logs sold separately
Here's a cool little item I found at the bottom of a box of cassettes at a local thrift shop: "The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper."
For the uninitiated, Kyle MacLachlan played FBI Agent Dale Cooper on the TV show Twin Peaks. Throughout the series he constantly dictated his notes to a never-seen secretary named Diane.
During the all-too-brief Twin Peaks craze there were a number of bizarre bits of merch that were created, such as Laura Palmer's "diary" (not as interesting as you might think) and this cassette of original material read by MacLachlan. He was nominated for a Grammy for this recording.
I got this tape (as well as the cassette single of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit) for 25 cents each. Score!
