Trying to picture what a typical day looks like for David Lynch’s is maybe the hardest thing I’ve ever made myself do. What do we think that looks like, really? I honestly can take about 15 seconds of imagining him petting his collection of wigs made from he manes of unicorns, or maybe staring into space like a powered-down robot (hey, I’m open to other theories) before my brain shuts off entirely.
Well, Lynch has offered us a tiny window into his daily routine in an interview he gave to Vice’s food arm, Munchies. Because I guess David Lynch and I disagree over whether talking to an outlet named after a Doritos-based snack is beneath him.
