  1. Great work! Coincidentally, just last night I completed a rough draft of my own Lynch video tribute, though more based around dialogue than music. I was a bit nervous when I ran across yours this morning (especially because the link mentioned a "Sleeper Must Awaken"/Laura Palmer connection, which I also used albeit differently). But fortunately (and remarkably, all things are considered) very few of the clips we used overlap. I noticed that clips from the first 2/3 of Mulholland Dr are from a website - did you have the same trouble I did in getting usable footage from that disc? So weird - it's the only time I've run into that problem with a DVD.

    My video essay will be up in a month (it's called "Take This Baby and Deliver It to Death," a paraphrase from The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer) as part of a David Lynch Month on my blog. It will focus almost exclusively on his 1977-1992 although as of now I've included short audio clips from his later films.

    My favorite parts of your video were the two closing acts - "The World Spins" and "In Dreams". Or should I say "Candy-Colored Clown"? ;) I've been meaning to explore your blog for a while now, as I enjoyed your contributions to the Twin Peaks Podcast. Glad this led me to it.
