The Daily Beast just ran an awesome interview with David Lynch. I’ve pulled some snippets here, but you should read the whole thing if you’re a Lynch fan!

I just saw your fantastic ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video.
[Laughs] Oh. Great trumpet playing, huh? I had to do two buckets because two people challenged me, so I thought it should have some music to it. And I’m agreat trumpet player. And for some reason, I wanted to nominate Vladimir Putin. He might want to take part in helping some people.
Were there some demons you were dealing with when you turned to TM? You started on Eraserhead in ’72, and I understand that was a very fraught production early on.
You don’t have to be in bad shape.
Instead of being vague and click-baiting everyone, I went ahead and put the spoiler in the headline. I don’t want to make everyone watch yet another ice bucket challenge video. But I wanted to share because, after all, it is David Lynch. Besides, often will you get to see Lynch playing Somewhere Over the Rainbow horribly on a trumpet as iced espresso is dumped over his head?
From Imgur: “I went to see David Lynch’s Dune in the theater in 1984. As we entered, we were given a glossary of Dune terms with our tickets. I understand this is not a common piece of movie ephemera, so I thought you might like to see it.”
Staying with the theme of the previous post, a review of Joon-ho Bong’s ‘Snowpiercer’, thought I’d share a review of David Lynch’s ‘Inland Empire’ that I posted on my previous site in 2007 after watching the movie for the first time – I ended up going back to the theater 2 more times within a week of making this post so that I could experience it again. Suffice it to say, I highly recommend the movie.
I walked out of ‘Inland Empire’ seven hours ago and was too exhausted to tackle this recommendation. I ended up getting something to eat and after five hours of restless sleep I think I’m ready to at least pique your interest enough to consume David Lynch and go for a ride.
I want to get one thing out of the way before I go any further. The actors in this movie will blow you away.… Read the rest
Andy Warhol is better remembered for his paintings, and even his films, than for the hundreds of photographs he took in the last period of his career. William Burroughs’ legacy counts writing and even painting before his drawn-on photographs. David Lynch is a known cinematic genius who happens to love capturing still images of massive industrial spaces.
Each of these tertiary bodies of work would be fascinating to see on exhibit, but a gallery in England has decided to display photos by all three artists in a trio of contiguous exhibitions. I know, it’s blowing my mind right now. Here’s the word from Channel 4:
They’re three of the key counter-cultural figures of the 20th century: Andy Warhol the pop artist, William Burroughs the cult novelist and the film maker David Lynch.
Now a trio of exhibitions at London’s Photographers’ Gallery shows us another side to these men – the view from behind their stills cameras.… Read the rest
...It is jarring then, to say the least, to hear Mr. Brand, 35, speaking passionately and sincerely about the emotional solace he has found in Transcendental Meditation, or TM. Yet there he was in December, onstage at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (as his new wife, the pop singer Katy Perry, waited backstage), describing how TM has helped him repair his psychic wounds. “Transcendental Meditation has been incredibly valuable to me both in my recovery as a drug addict and in my personal life, my marriage, my professional life...
