We just finished watching all of the interviews, the making of, (the SNL with Kyle!) and discussions from the people who made Twin Peaks so unique as a television show. To me David Lynch is a genius. What a crazy and mad genius. I wish we had had a better turn-out at The Lodge, but honestly, I think all those who get Twin Peaks in the Central Florida area was there on Thursday. We have some crazy footage, so hold on tight. Thanks again to everyone who came out and enjoyed, and thank you so much for your contributions made for future Altered State 2. I wish we could put together a Miss Twin Peaks Contest…


Joseph (BOB) and I (Laura) want to thank EVERYONE who made it out to the Party. We had a great time and I hope you did too! It means a lot to us, really. When I first had the idea for a party, it was going to be at our house. I thought The Lodge would be perfect. It used to be a place we’d like to go to. I have to give a big thank you to Adriaan and DJ Ativistic Empire. Fantastic set as usual. But you didn’t get to do your live stuff, which we were looking forward to. I’m sorry, a million times. The tracks you played and the dialogue mixing was GREAT! Thank you guys for being there. Also thanks to a certain Agent Cooper for a gift certificate donation. It came in handy.

Congratulations athletic Nadine, YOU ROCK! Call or write me for your prize= xo

Trivia Contest winner-Matt “The Giant” G.

Owly Award- Jessica “Audrey” for best costume runner-up. It was a close race, but the Owly seems made for you.

Best Costume-Athletic Nadine



Thursday, May 21!

May 21, 2009

Tomorrow. The party is happening tomorrow, neatly wrapped in plastic.

7pm-11pm (or later)

The Lodge, downtown Orlando

(on Orange Ave, near Wall Street)






It will be like New Years Eve, Halloween and Bingo Night, rolled into one damn good burrito!


Details of the contests are being worked out but there will be a trivia portion and Best Costume event. So make sure you sign up for the trivia when you arrive. And we’re actually giving away prizes for them too, including gift certificates for Starbucks and Pom Pom’s Teahouse. PLUS we’ll be giving out the first annual Owly Award for best costume. Yes, the handsome Great Horned Owl, pictured above, could be yours to take home and scare birds or frighten small children!

To repeat:






“Oh Diane, I almost forgot. Got to find out what kind of trees these are. They’re really something.” Special Agent Dale Cooper

… give me a donut!

May 15, 2009

I found the perfect, I mean perfect donuts for the party. Just you wait. They will be lined up!

And let’s not forget the dressing up as your favorite character.

The Lodge is known for Christmas in July, this will be Halloween in May, Twin Peaks style!

If you can’t decide which character, take this online quiz.


Adriaan, who was the amazing DJ for Altered State, has gracioiusly agreed to do the Twin Peaks party. He and cohort his DJ Atavistic Empire will be mixing up some soundtrack, jams and live instrumentation(!) into an unprecedented orgy of sound. Or something like that. Anyway, to quote Agent Cooper, we are pleased as punch to have Adriaan and DJ AE provide the musical inspiration for your Lodge experience (Black or White Lodge is up to you). It’s worth the price alone to see two musical artists up close. Did we mention it’s FREE (although donations which go toward the next Altered State event are welcome). There will also be FREE donuts, ‘natch, trivia and costume contests. Dressing up is encouraged but not mandatory. But what harm could there be in letting your naughty inner doppleganger run free?

If you’d like to catch Adrian prior to the TP party you can catch him at Chuck Markins art opening at Peacock on the Monday, May 18th. Then he and Cub will be at the Black Box May 23 for another False Alarm noise night.

Oh James…

James Hurley-Born January 1, 1973. The quiet, inner strength of this Capricorn is truly remarkable. coming from a broken home, James concluded pretty early on that people can seldom be trusted which is why he’s so perplexed so many people trust him. With his Harley and the open road he is fulfilled. Loves Route 21 past White Tail Falls at 3 am and Julee Cruise at the Roadhouse. (Access Guide)


Donna Hayward– Born September 2, 1972. A true Virgo, very thorough, a little skeptical and a bit of an edge. Donna grew up as the daughter of Twin Peaks only family doctor and is respected and thought of as “a good girl” in town. Loves Nancy Drew Mysteries, motorcycle rides and Virginia Slims. (Lynchnet+paintergirl)


Tommy “the Hawk” Hill-Born September 16, 1950. A Virgo, Hawk is a unique combination of pragmatist and mystic. Son of a Zuni Shaman, he admits to being intolerant of those who would destroy the earth’s beauty and allows that he did, indeed, run the wrong way in that final game of the ’68 season. Loves grass between his toes and cool, clear water. (Access Guide)


The Log Lady-Born under achingly clear skies on an unknown date, The Log Lady is a self proclaimed Libra and a graduate of Twin Peaks High School. After further matriculation at Evergreen State University as a Forestry and Wildlife Management major, she met a fire fighter and the rest is history. When not teaching Fire Prevention and ballroom dancing, The Log Lady ministers to the sick and the sick at heart. “My strength,’ she explains, “is in my forearms.”(Access Guide)


You have almost three weeks to work on your outfit and round up your friends to go. This is going to be one of the year’s strangest parties, hope to see you there!



Laura Palmer-Born June 1, 1972 Died February 24, 1989. Laura was the definition of a Gemini. The good girl vs. bad girl paradox. You never knew what kind of day you’d have when Laura was with you. She was known for having the most beautiful eyes in Twin Peaks. Loved motorcycle rides at night, and meeting new people, especially older guys. (Lynchnet+paintergirl)


Audrey Horne-Born August 24, 1972. Often seen as a poor little rich girl, Audrey is a Virgo with a Leo’s heart. Even though she attends the local high school, she does not have any close friends. It’s the case of the pretty girl with no date for a Friday night. Audrey is fond of fuzzy sweaters and handsome FBI men. (paintergirl)
