The coolest thing I've done in LA so far is go by David Lynch's house....or actually, his three somehow interconnected houses, including the one used in Los Angeles. I resisted the impulse to go leave a videotape in a manila envelope on the doorstep.

That's pretty cool.  What are you doing there?  Something to do with your movie?

You should have left the videotape of your short film on the doorstep. What can you lose? Worse case scenario, he throws it out but at least you will be doing something to try to get in the door even if that kind of thing is the typical for LA.

That would be such a great gimmick! I wonder if anyone's thought to do that before... If not I bet he'd be pretty amused and would probably watch it. If you're still in LA when you read this, Ghostboy, I say go for it...!

If you're gonna do something like that, make sure it's memorable, like in the form of an homage that you know he'll get.  Like, put a fake severed ear on top of it, or maybe construct a crude blue box with a blue key, and put the tape inside.  Or you could go with the whole calf-baby motif from Eraserhead, but I have no idea how you'd work that in to a pitch.  ;)

I'd say seeing where David Lynch lives is more than just somewhat cool... was his abode "Lynchian" in any way? Did it remind you of one of his films? Any outward signs of the personality on the inside?

We should have a "Xixax Cribs" topic where we could discuss these things.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

Fuck it, knock on the door and sell it to Lynch for $8.

Umm... if that was directed to me, no I haven't.  Only seen a couple of his films.  They're incredibly hard to find.  The library at my uni does have Lost Highway, luckily enough (and The Straight Story for that matter, which I haven't seen either but am planning on soon).  Why, though?

Or that.  Sure shows chutzpah, that's for sure.  :)

I think he used it as Bill Pullman and Patricia Arquette's house in Lost Highway, hence Ghostboy's original plan of the video. I believe in his first post he wrote Los Angeles intead of Lost Highway by mistake - must be the smog...

Onomatopoeia: it's just that the leaving of the video on a doorstep is a reference to that movie... It's really great (my favourite Lynch) - you should check it out.

Oh, OK.  I figured as much.  Thanks.  The manila envelope seems rather universal, though, which is why I didn't quite get it.

i don't know about lynch's house, but i did read one hilarious interview w/ him after mullholland came out. during the interview, which was done at his office, he gets a phone call from his son, who was like 5 or 6 years old. the son asks lynch if he can jump into the pool in their backyard while riding his bike. Lynch goes; "Of course not! What did you think I was going to say?" he hangs up. "(sighs) kids," he says to the reporter.

the questions is; what would it be like to be david lynch's son? i read one thing one of lynch's best friends said about him; :"he's almost too normal. in fact, he's so normal its weird."

on the blue velvet se dvd, there was a guy telling a story of how one day lynch and his son got a whole chicken, took it apart and put it back together differently each time taking a picture. then the next day on the set hed show the pictures to people. one of them had the chickens head up its ass. i dunno about this normal business.

I read too that with his ex wife, when Jess Lynch was little, they'd go and find dirt and garbage in the park and let it rot on the table just to see what would happen.  :lol:
