Has David Lynch gone sane?
Jag hittade en David Lynch intervju från 2000 som jag inte läst på ett tag. Märklig man, Lynch. Lite utdrag:
You were once on the cover of Time magazine.
That's the kiss of death. Someone told me around that time that you have two years of bad luck. I don't know wether I made that come true because I heard it, but it was a bad time after that.
How do you feel about Twin Peaks now?
Well, I loved Twin Peaks. I loved the world of it. That's all I cared about - going into a world in a continuing story. Mark Frost and I never wanted to solve the murder of Laura Palmer. The second year, I would come back and do something every now and then, but basically I left it because you can't do everything.
I have misgivings about the way it went but I still - and always will - love the world.
What do you do instead of watching TV?
Well, I do watch some television. But I usually watch golf. I like to watch golf on TV. A lot.
You used to leave long messages on Julee Cruise's answerphone. You'd be going, "Julee...? Julee...?
Julee Cruise...? Pick up the phone Julee..." Did you think she was avoiding you...
I don't know. I can't remember that.
...or was it simply a distrust of answerphones?
I don't like 'em but they're very useful.
What's the message on your own?
Oh, I changed them through the years.
Do you leave comedy messages?
Yeah, some of them are absurd. But finding the right absurd one is the key. And I don't have one right now, 'cos I haven't thought of a good one.
One said: "We're at the gun store. Get back to ya." People don't usually leave crank messages when they hear a thing like that.
Give me an example.
Were you worried that you'd gone too far with Lost Highway? Yoy said earlier that endings are important but Lost Highway doesn't give one.
But that's important! I mean, it ends there! That's a beautiful ending in my book.
