I had posted about Lynch, Ev Williams (Co-founder of blogger.com +Twitter) and tweets in 2009 [Feb. 23, 2009: Tweets and the City]. His twitter account is not as constant, but very Lynch. Here is a funny video of Lynch confirming his account @david_lynch, four years ago:


With a tremendous prismatic repertoire in the film industry, his own organic signature coffee +that sexy gray hair, we wish you a happy birthday señor Lynch.

One of my favorites is Blue Velvet (1986), amongst many – yours?

  2. If we ever watch Blue Velvet together someday, please don't hate me because I can recite every line of that film by heart. And without any mind altering substances, I will deconstruct every shot for you.
