    Like many things I didn't see it until much later, I think it was part deux that I saw first. Without knowing who the director was I watched 'Eraserhead' when prompted to do so, by a 'weird' video shop owner. The proprietor was dressed as a vampire when I shopped there (my hick small town). Eraserhead is still far and away the strangest movie I've ever seen. The chances that I would watch it twice are nil...
    David Lynch has sure made some weird movies, that's a given. The original "Dune" movie from 1980 was directed by him, and was somewhat weird too. And then there were "Lost Highway" and "Mulholland Drive", which both had seemingly illogical/irrational/bizarre plots.

    I've only really seen Twin Peaks, the original series and mostly loved it. Although the creepy horror parts really were creepy.

    People have described Lynch's movies as dreamlike or nightmarish and I'd agree, but from what I've seen the new ones are really weird.

    Lynch had very little control over Dune and he hates it so much because he thinks the studio butchered his vision. To this date he refuses to really talk about it and hasn't even wanted to see the new Dune movie. Some people however claim that Lynch would have captured the feeling of the Dune book better than Denis Villeneuve. The best version of the old movie can be seen here as I've made a thread about it.

    yes, I've seen the Elephant Man and sure enough, it was 'weird'.

    I won a tree in an art contest when I was in kindergarten (5 years old). I planted it and it died...I've felt dirty ever since. Seriously, sinful, like Cain. (I even liked Cain's name better than Abel).

    Living ALONE

    Reflections on life


    Feb 18, 2023
    The world is more connected than it's ever been before. We can communicate instantly with our friends and family who live miles apart, thanks to the power of social media. And yet... why do so many of us still feel lonely?

    Feeling lonely is a normal human experience - it is something we all go through. And it's not simply a function of being alone. You can feel lonely in a crowd. Because loneliness is a feeling of being alienated from others, not feeling understood or connected - it’s a feeling that something is missing.

    But loneliness is also a message that our body sends us, letting us know that we are important, and we need to become friends with ourselves again. When we feel isolated or alone, we can choose to have compassion for ourselves. We can recognise our emotions without judging them. When we accept where we are at and what we are struggling against, without berating ourselves, we can then begin to change.

    In order to defeat loneliness, we have to listen to its message - You are complete, nobody is needed, you are enough!

    On a cloudy Northwest afternoon in August, my sweetheart, Patricia, and I drove out to the Snoqualmie River, at the edge of the Cascade Mountains, and filmed this song. We found a beautiful oasis of trees and grass next to the river and spent the early evening singing ...
