David Lynch is taking a trip down memory during his period of self-isolation lockdown, revisiting his legendary weather reports that last ran in the mid-2000s.
Lynch’s typically bizarre weather report series was sporadically posted to his official website with the last post arriving some ten years ago. Now though, with millions of people forced to remain home amid strict social distancing measures, Lynch is back with his public service.
“Good morning it is May 11th 2020 and it’s a Monday,” Lynch begins in weather report address. “Here in LA, it’s kind of cloudy, some fog this morning. 64 degrees Fahrenheit, around 17 celsius. This all should burn off pretty soon and we’ll have sunshine and 70 degrees. Have a great day!”
The director of Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet and more, has already confirmed that he is not spending his period in lockdown working on any new television or film projects, instead he told Vice that he has picked up a new hobby of creating electric light holders. “It involves lightbulbs, electricity, polyester resin plastic, and those kinds of things,” he said.
When the conversation turned to quarantine hobbies, Lynch was asked to recommend some fun tasks to keep people busy. He replied: “They can draw, they can paint, they can build small things, they can write lyrics, they can write poems, they can write stories that can later be filmed, they can play games, they can invent games. So many things can happen in a small space, they can invent new recipes and cooking things. It’s an opportunity for a bunch of different experiments.”
For now though, time for the weather.
