I saw Blue Velvet again this weekend.  Some interesting retro-parallels:

	Same bass-and-snare mood theme
	Gratuitous shot of log truck
	Antlers (on the front of the Slow lounge)

Perhaps these are Lynch signatures, and have no relationship to
plot lines and clues. 

On the wall of Jeff's father's kitchen is a large log, which says
`Tiverton' on it.  Does this log talk?

The character Kyle M. plays is a budding detective, who appears to 
have an intense first-love experience with one of the purest, 
nicest girls-next-door in modern cinema.  Any chance that Cooper's
reference to his broken heart might cast the Blue Velvet character
as a biographical pre-Cooper?
