David Lynch's Monologue is Part of New Song

Although there are many artists, musicians, writers, and performers inspired by David Lynch, few have shown quite so much Lynchian style in their work as Steven Ellison, whose experimental music concepts go under his band umbrella "Flying Lotus," also occasionally shortened as the nickname "FlyLo." In his most recent album, Flamagra, he gets David Lynch to share a monologue he once heard the director recount at a party, but for the song "Fire is Coming."

David Lynch's Hand Drawn Map of Twin Peaks

Kyle MacLachlan, the real world counterpart to Twin Peaks' very own Agent Cooper, Mr. C, Dougie Jones, and Richard, posted this David Lynch hand drawn charcoal map artifact showing our beloved fictional town of Twin Peaks in nearly all of its glory. David Lynch and Mark Frost once commented that one of the first steps they took when writing the show was drawing out a map to keep straight in their heads all the characters and locations of the town.

Peggy Lipton (Norma Jennings from Twin Peaks) Rest in Peace

I am sad to write that one of the sweetest women in the world, Peggy Lipton, passed away yesterday on May 11, 2019. Although she was 72 years old, you could hardly tell by looking at her. By all accounts, she was a remarkable mother, a talented actress, and a pop culture icon that helped inspire a generation of girls and young women. I want to take a moment away from my revisions and editing of my 40 Years of David Lynch series of books to join in mourning with the rest of the world over the loss of this incredible woman and truly memorable performer.
