blue velvet playing

Jeff picks up a severed ear and goes to detective Williams to give him the ear

no
oZoom in on the ear and there’s an emptiness

oSaid he cant tell him anything about the case and Jeff says that he understands
Approached by a woman in the darkness who walks out and asks if he was the one who found
the ear

an apartment near his house
Child like curiosity motivates their actions the apartment is on Lincoln

oIn a very nice car…
He takes her to a diner and says that they should sneak into the woman’s apartment and
observe while in a closet

Tells him that she is going to be a Jehovah’s witness- this is key
oJeffery convinces her to “join” his side
Dorothy lives on the seventh floor- 7th day the world was created or w.e
The music is quite and the tone is getting eary as he goes up
Gets inside of Dorothy’s room, and is let into a pink apartment

They drink beer and he says “to an interesting experience”
She sings about blue velvet
