While the current lockdown continues to disrupt the cinema industry, David Lynch is spending his time delivering his typically surreal weather reports to keep fans entertained.
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 until he revived the project recently.
“Good morning it is May 17th 2020 and it’s a Sunday,” Lynch begins in weather report address. “Here in LA we had some fog earlier but it’s burning off some wispy clouds all turning to blue skies, golden sunshine, very still. 65 degrees Fahrenheit right now, around 18 celsius. 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.
