David Lynch’s Taste in Music

Posted By Jaime Gassmann
01.06.2012

Deep, dark filmmaker David Lynch released an album of music that’s, well, experimental and moody, as you might expect. Watch a clip of him in the studio masterminding Crazy Clown Time.

I found this nugget of behind-the-scenes coolness while looking into the band Zola Jesus, who are gaining a lot of momentum lately. Lynch remixed the song In Your Nature from their album Conatus (listen).

Turns out, Lynch listens to a lot of strong female vocalists. Obviously Nika Roza Danilova, the Russian-American lead for Zola Jesus. He tweets his appreciation for Lissie. And, get this, Karen O does vocals on the opening track to Crazy Clown Time: Pinky’s Dream.

Daily Practice

Posted By Jaime Gassmann

A Buddhist’s daily practice of mindfulness follows a path that leads to understanding and liberation. Stefan G. Bucher’s daily practice leads to blooming creativity and now two hundred daily monsters.

Daily Monster is Bucher’s blog, his book, and his obsession. Ink gobbed on via toothbrush and splayed across the page with canned air is documented in its journey from splotch to sketch. If you want to watch a video of his process, might I suggest last year’s New Year’s monster.

You can also make your own monster using his incredibly cool app.

The point for me, however, is not the monsters themselves. It’s the regimen. Inspiration can spring out of discipline. And, note to self, these monsters teach the ever-relevant lesson that viral blogs and book deals can spring out of following your quirky passion.
