Uh-oh.

"Peace man

David Lynch's films, such as Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks, show a dark vision of the world. Is that why he is helping an Indian guru raise a billion dollars to build a university of peace?"

Completely missed it. Sorry.

Don't be. I'm kidding, of course.

Heather Graham, no less, credits Lynch with hooking her up to meditation when she was working on Twin Peaks. She says it changed her life.

Take that as you will.

Here's a revealing interview with David Lynch from 2005, some of which is quoted in his book Catching the Big Fish.

I always hear such terrifying things from Christians about TM. But I rarely hear substantial thought on the subject. It's either wonderful or the gateway to demon possession, depending on who's enthusing.

I'm wary of the whole subject, but I'd like to find some thoughtful, serious writing on the subject by a Christian.

P.S.  I COULD BE WRONG.

I'll pretend to be Peter. See last post on page.

Wow, that goes back to the days when this website was called Promontory Arts, not Arts & Faith.

Anyway, here's an updated link.

: Wow, I remember that thread. But I don't remember the elimination of Gregory's posts. Did he delete them, I wonder? Or did a moderator?

I vaguely recall noticing that they had been deleted, but I can't remember when or why.

My hunch is that he deleted them himself, since the actual posts are still there, just emptied of content; in the other two-and-a-half cases I'm aware of, when people's posts have been purged from this site, the entire posts have been deleted altogether (except when they were at the start of a thread).

Then again, it's possible the post-purging technology was different in the early days of this forum ...

Gregory mentions Here, that it was he who "x'd" out his own posts.

Is this a good time to admit that I'm a modest fan of Duran Duran? Not an own-everything-they-put-out fan, but enough to have a couple of albums and revisit them occasionally with a goofy grin plastered across my face.

Arts Journal linked to this Patti Smith interview of Lynch. I haven't had a chance to watch it, but the link made it sound worthwhile.
