David Lynch Developing a Mulholland Drive Themed Nightclub and Doctor Who WILL NOT Be Back for a Full 2012 Season

  • David Lynch, director of movies that are weirder than your grandmother’s night terrors, is opening up a Mulholland Drive themed nightclub in Paris. The club, Silencio, will house a cinema, concert hall, art gallery, restaurant, and a bar and will look stylistically similar to the film. It will open in September. Here’s an early description:

    Lynch has designed the entire interior of the club, including some striking pieces of furniture. A surreal wooden-speaker stack seems to resemble a nightmarish appropriation of the face of a child’s cuddly toy — the eyes being the two circular speaker cones. He’s also designed several bespoke chairs and an asymmetrical double sofa, footstool and side-table combination.

    …The club will also feature a private film screening room. As you might expect from a Lynch project, much is still shrouded in secrecy. Those involved with the club reveal little, saying information will be released nearer to the opening date. But this cloud of obfuscation hasn’t stopped Lynch’s devoted fanbase from excitably posting leaks, titbits and photographs on internet forums and Facebook. Club Silencio, it seems, won’t stay quiet for long.

  • Bummer, y’all. Early reports that there would be a full 14-episode season of “Doctor Who” were correct. However, those 14 episodes will not all run in 2012. Rather, there will be a special anniversary run of episodes in 2013. That means maybe only a few episodes will air in late 2012, while the rest will run in 2013. All of which is to say: There won’t be much of Matt Smith to look forward to in next year. But at least we’ll have Steven Moffat’s Sherlock Holmes to which to look forward. (IO9)

  • If you’re not keeping up with “Dexter” season six news, let me fill you in: Colin Hanks, son of Tom, will have a significant role, appearing in all 12 episodes as a “brilliant expert on ancient artifacts who somehow becomes linked to a series of grisly murders in Miami.” No idea if that puts him on Dexter’s good side or bad side. What we also know now is that Molly Parker (“Deadwood”) will also be joining the season. She will play the sister of Hanks’ character. Oh, she did it! I can already tell. It was her! It was her!

    Apparently, Sean Bean will make a return appearance in the finale of “GoT” this Sunday. If you haven’t caught up yet, there’s no reason to think he wouldn’t right? Anyway, TV Line is reporting that “Two of his children will see him in a way you’d probably expect of television; a third, though, will have a shocking run-in with dear old Dad.” I’m sure the smug book readers know exactly what she’s talking about.

  • On July 14th, it will be Melissa McCarthy and Joshua Jackson who will present the 2011 Emmy Nominations. But hey! Why wait? We’ve already posted them.

  • I suspect this is true of many of you, but a study had proven it: Netflix Steaming Users are downgrading their cable packages. The number of streaming users likely to downgrade in the next six months had jumped from 16 percent to 32 percent. That reminds me, I need to cancel Showtime. Is there any reason to have it before “Dexter” returns?
