Sometimes, the mystery of death.

Sadly the world lost an icon a couple days ago when Catherine Coulson, aka The Log Lady from Twin Peaks, died from cancer, just weeks after the third season of the show began filming. What enigmatic wisdom would her character have bestowed in the new episodes? Only her log could tell us now.

During last year's Twin Peaks theme weekend, Catherine Coulson appeared as The Log Lady in the Twin Peaks homage "Unknown Species" by Pretty Little Demons. She isn't in today's video, but the song certainly sounds like it came straight from a night in The Roadhouse. "The Big Dream" was originally recorded by David Lynch for his 2013 album of the same name (a follow-up to 2011's Crazy Clown Time), but this version has Mindy Jones channeling Julee Cruise in a 2014 Moby "reversion" of the song. 

Appropriate that this is the fifth anniversary of this blog, and the traditional fifth anniversary gift is wood. If you have a spare log, won't you slap some stamps on it and send it my way? I need it for my shrine.

Here is David Lynch's original version of the song:
