David Lynch Drops His Big Dream

  • I guess it shouldn't be a surprise that "The Big Dream" has the title that it does, coming from the Master of Dreams himself, Mr. David Lynch. So YES let's just put it out there right now that I am/was/will always be a big fan of Lynch, as pretentious and stupidly arty as he may seem to some. I don't really need things to make sense, and I appreciate things that don't. Given that, I have a high tolerance for watching mutated, sperm-like mutant babies float through outer space.

    Thankfully for you, this isn't that. It isn't even about that. It's about music. It's true that the summer season is upon us, and everyone's bustin' out the happy-go-lucky jams and perhaps "The Big Dream" – with it’s release date of July 16th - will be far from giving us tracks that fall into that categorization... BUT, when the evening creeps in and the leaves begin to bitterly flutter to the ground and you're blowing fog-enhanced smoke-rings under a streetlamp - truly what could be more appropriate.

    BigDream

    "The Big Dream" is Lynch's follow up to 2011's "Crazy Clown Time", an admittedly bizarro but well received album that lyrically weaved tales revolving around stalking women, Alan Watts-ish analyzing of destructive thought patterns, and of course, the titular Crazy Clown Time, which to be perfectly honest I'm not entirely sure how to explain. I'll just put it right here:

    For those of you who are reluctant to listen to his admittedly off-putting voice, I understand. However, much like the people who have but one thing to say about Bob Dylan ("ugh, he's a HORRIBLE singer!"), it doesn't matter. It could hardly be denied that the most important works of art are often not aesthetically pleasing. You're not going to drive around with the windows rolled down, licking a popsicle and crankin' "Chimes of Freedom". In much the same way, Lynch's music requires something of you - but if you give it, you will be rewarded. You never know - on some long late-night walk home you might even NEED it. Appropriately enough, "The Big Dream" will feature a Bob Dylan cover, as well as a bonus track with Lykke Li.

    Musically it's about as weird as white-guy-blues can get, and it all gives a sort of vague, temporary impression of what it might be like to listen in to someone else's head. Whether David Lynch's head is something you'd want to get into or not is another matter, but you can be rest assured that I can, will, and already do. As often as possible.

      Trailer For The Last Damn Hobbit Movie Released
      0 sec ago Dana Ewachow
      Peter Jackson has released a trailer of the third and - thankfully - final movie of The Hobbit adventure.  Instead of respecting the short and sweet tale of Bilbo Baggins, Jackson has made three ridiculously long movies that stretch minor plot points like an overused pair of Spanx. Now we must brace ourselves for the final CGI-ed middle finger called “The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies” coming out this December. The trailer does its very best to be just like Lord of the Rings, going so...

      Meet Flash Tats, the most luxurious and far less painful way of hopping on the body art bandwagon. No needles required, just a banging outfit, a damp sponge & anywhere you and your skin might be seen having some fun.   These metallic body transfers are better than henna, dollar store wash offs and over accessorizing altogether. I actually never thought temp tattoos could be this fancy, but here you have it: Flash Tattoos, "innovative jewelry inspired temporary tattoos...
      Waking up for the last day of Pemberton in a mound of festy filth I was ready to sink deep into the river at the end of the train tracks. Stepping outside of the festival I felt weird away from the madness but taking a quick naked jaunt into the river felt revitalizing and I was ready to enter back into the hysteria. First up was Rebelution. Playing the Pemberton stage the drug crowd was still sleeping off their hangovers as kids, parents and folks of all generations came out to witness this...
      The Diaires of MEG Noobs: Da-P and Sango feat. Craig David/Omarion blends

      It's my first summer in Montreal and I've been enjoying checking out the seemingly endless stream of festivals that've been happening since the snow stopped falling. The MEG Festival, whose mission is to put on up-and-coming artists, is one of the smaller festivals, but it's now in its sixteenth year, which is pretty impressive given its chill and seemingly for-the-music mission.  The evening I was most excited for was the Soulection Showcase at Le Belmont. I was in good company: the crew...

      Why put all of the power of our food into the hand of big corporations, businesses, and the government? Shouldn't the people be in charge of food?

      Wonder Woman Revealed in Batman v Superman Flick

      As all the modern-day Batman and Superman fans are aware, the two worlds are set to collide in team-up film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, that is set to release two years from now. It’s hard to tell what the outcome will be, but I think it’s safe to say that it’s going to do well in the box office.  Not only will the movie feature The Dark Knight (this time portrayed by Ben Affleck) AND The Man of Steel (Henry Cavil), director Zack Snyder, revealed official photos of what Gal Gadot (...

       Walmart, the world's largest retailer and the figurative ass hole of consumerism, gets hit with its share of controversy on a regular basis. A few years ago, one of their security guards was trampled to death by a horde of Black Friday shoppers bloodthirsty for discount Ipads, lawn chairs, and underwear. They've since spent almost half a million dollars to avoid paying a small fine. Essentially, that bouncing yellow smiley face might be the face of corporate satan.  In...

      On July 9th 2013, I departed on an adventure like I have never done before. One where I decided to leave my home, Montreal, and to live across the world in the beautiful land that is Sydney, Australia, for an entire year to study on an exchange program at the University of New South Wales. A country that everybody craves to see, a country that everybody could live there, and a country that I wish I never left. Australia is a magnificent country for so many reasons, it is truly hard to pin every...
