I don't know anyone who couldn't use a little David Lynch in their lives. Thanks to the Twitters, I learned he's taken to delivering weather reports each morning from a very David Lynch-y office desk...hazy, smoky, depressing-looking, and bizarre as f*ck. They are absolutely silly and worth the 45 - 75 seconds it takes so that you can be reminded what day it is and why the hell he is holding that jar.
According to Thrillist:
"GOOD MORNING," he begins each video, and then tells us what the date and day of the week it is, an invaluable resource for those of us who have given up on keeping track. He then follows it up with a description of the weather in his area (usually misty and cloudy in the mornings, which will likely "burn off" later in the day), the temperature in both Fahrenheit and Celsius, and ending with a wish for all of us to have a great day. As a daily comfort, these videos are gold, and as a quarantine diary, they're even more fascinating still, giving us normies a peek into the mind of one of our most perplexing artists.
And, honestly, Lynch's daily life seems… pretty normal. He posts each video from his workshop at the exact same angle, so they all look like they were filmed inside a concrete bunker. Sometimes he'll add in a conversation piece, such as the jar in the video above, the use for which he never bothers to explain. Elsewhere on his channel are a few short films he's released, as well as videos explaining his various crafting projects, wherein he often slides characteristically wise observations about the nature of our world, such as: "Paper is made from wood. And these paper towels are just another example of how important wood is for our work and our life." Can't argue with that.
Don't argue. Just drink up every weirdo morsel you can get.
