The Man From Another Place

David Lynch

Today brings the sixty-second birthday of the bizarre and surrealist director David Lynch. A man to be forever associated with the nightmarish netherworld of Eraserhead, the unwholesome psychological traumas of Blue Velvet and the damn fine coffee and pie of Twin Peaks.

While browsing the web for trivial tidbits, I struck the jackpot with a resource of quotes from the man himself; each soundbite is like a spark illuminating just a little more of Lynch's unique philosophy of life. Every key issue is discussed: from body bags to ants to surrealism to jazz to coffee to film noir to mounds of dirt. It's worth fifteen minutes of anybody's time. Happy birthday Mr. Lynch.
