Which is why it's so great. I always feel weird ranking it among his greatest films, but it's such a beautiful, humane and touching but not saccharine and melodramatic film. That bar conversation with the other veteran always makes me cry.

I'm reading Martin Aston's Facing the Other Way: The Story of 4AD right now and apparently Lynch wanted Cocteau Twins to appear in a prom scene in Blue Velvet as the prom band and perform Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren." They agreed to do it, but Buckley's estate wanted $20,000 to license the song and Lynch just couldn't afford it. The entire scene was scrapped. Of course, their version of the song [or, perhaps more accurately, This Mortal Coil's version of the song] later appeared over a scene in Lost Highway. I'm not sure if the price came down or Lynch's music budget went up.

The NW Film Center in Portland, Oregon, will be a holding a career retrospective of David Lynch. All of his features (most on 35mm), most of his shorts, and a number of his influences will be screened.

I have. I think I still have VHS recordings of them all in my basement. I don't remember much about them but my neglect of them in the years since would seem to suggest that they weren't all that compelling.

Couldn't resist having more weird shirts in my wardrobe so I bought one. Really pleased he decided to do this.

The NY Times publishes some excerpts from Lynch's soon-to-be released memoir/biography Room To Dream (which was also the name of a DVD that Avid put out in conjunction with Lynch that features material about the making of Inland Empire).

The section about the frog-moth from Twin Peaks-The Return is a story that Lynch told in the "Quinoa" bonus feature from the Inland Empire DVD. I noticed it last summer when re-watching through Lynch's filmography during the run of Twin Peaks-The Return and had wondered at the time if that was the origin.

Here's the teaser for Michael Jackson's Dangerous. I'd never head of the existence of this before reading the article.
