Unrelated to the weather but still interesting: David Lynch does the ice bucket challenge

As Cortex suggested, make some dang art.

Apparently he is also making tiny lamps.

And do not make art if you are just getting by or are very busy! Just getting by is fine too.

When he used to do these, Lynch was, to me, just some weird guy who made some movies or whatever. Since then I've watched Twin Peaks and The Return, and, well, I get it. These are wonderful and so welcome.

This made everything seem suddenly, inexplicably, so much better. Thanks for sharing this, and thank you David Lynch!

I wouldn't say it comes as a surprise that David Lynch's personal office appears to be a concrete cube, but it is something that I noticed.

The fact that it hasn't changed at all during the last ten years is unsurprising yet satisfying.

It never occurred to me that he might be a handy fellow. I like his choice of cordless drill.

David Lynch makes cool things. (One of his chairs appears in “What Did Jack Do?”)

Kind of like when he did the ads against Cruz.

iirc, he used to do this as a call-in correspondent segment for a punk radio station in... i think California (or maybe it was specifically a punk DJ on that station)? I only know because Timothy Olyphant mentioned it in a few of his interviews, because he used to do random sports updates for the same station as well.

His impenetrable accuracy is so not douchey, that it actually has a soothing effect.
I feel soothed. What a cool human.

Between his aspect in those weather reports and the really excellent pieces in the link kinnakeet provided, I love with this guy. After all these years..
