SPECIAL AGENT DALE COOPER, TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME
Yes, Special Agent Dale Cooper is chiefly a television character on Twin Peaks, but he was also (albeit briefly) in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Dale is a strange gentleman who has a lot of characteristic tastes, and with a mass cult appeal that hopefully will be of interest to a few people on your Christmas buying list. Again, like with Vincent Vega, his tastes translate to us all! Pour yourself a cup of coffee – as black as midnight on a moonless night — and start taking notes.
David Lynch Signature Coffee
Priced from $11.10-$54.50 (per bag – via Java Distribution)
Besides a perfect slice of pie, there is precious little that Dale Cooper appreciated more than “a damn good cup of coffee.” And one would expect that his creator, David Lynch, wouldn’t slap his name on anything less. You can choose from three different types, Organic House Roast, Organic Espresso Roast, and Decaf French Roast, and either get it shipped whole bean or ground (many quantities to chose from). Again, this is real.
Mr. Tod’s Pie Factory
Prices vary upon pie
So, as mentioned in the last blurb, nothing quite delights Dale Cooper like a slice of Norma’s pie at the RR. I happen to know Mr. Tod’s Pie Factory because it is close to Rutgers University (where I went for undergrad), and I went there a bunch during that time. But it seems, since then, Tod has been featured on Oprah and other media outlets, and therefore now his pies can be shipped fresh anywhere — conceivably to snowy Twin Peaks. Though we don’t want the RR to go bankrupt. $39.99 for a box of 10 mini pies is a good deal, and you can chose from many varieties, including pumpkin, French apple, and sweet potato.
Penfield Chatham Red Flannel Shirt
Priced at $85 (at penfield.com)
When Dale Cooper fell in love with the ill-fated Annie Blackburn and set his sights on buying property in Twin Peaks, he started keeping it casual with outdoorsy flannel shirts. Penfield is a company with Massachusetts origins that was founded on making legit outerwear (conceivably warm enough to survive a Twin Peaks logging season) and it’s now considered cool, sold for both men and women in a lot of high-end stores.
