I Think I'd Try to Get It Pulled From the Shelf

David Lynch (da dum, da Dum) has a book out, Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity, in which the author "writes candidly about the tremendous creative benefits he has gained from his thirty-two-year commitment to practicing Transcendental Meditation."

The publisher's blurb tells us that the book also "offers a set of practical ideas that speak to matters of personal fulfillment, increased creativity, and greater harmony with one's surroundings."

I like much of Lynch's work. That said, I'm not a big fan of TM, but if I was, and someone was offering Fire Walk With Me as an example of "greater harmony with one's surroundings," I think I'd sue.

(Thanks to Clive Barker's Science Fiction and Telefantasy Databanks for the link to Twin Peaks.)

My dad and I watched the entire Twin Peaks series this past summer.

That is the best show ever. EVER.

Fire Walk With Me... not so much. Watching that with my father was... awkward. To say the least.

Twin Peaks, especially the first dozen or so shows, was one of the great TV series. It's really too bad that he messed up the movie.

But then again, he totally destroyed Dune.
