For the month of October, we appropriately focus on the dark, twisted and yet strangely beautiful music of David Lynch.
I couldn't find just the right words to describe Lynch's amazing songs, so I borrowed the below quotes from a recent Rolling Stone. You can read the entire article RIGHT HERE.
"David Lynch doesn't want you to call him a musician. He's a renowned filmmaker and self-taught improviser on electric guitar, a slasher and basher of strange riffs he can never quite repeat again.
'I love to think of the electric guitar like a 1950s chopped and lowered flat-black muscle car, super-fast with a low roar on the exhaust. It's the sound of power. That's what I'm dreaming of. The electric guitar can be like an engine, but it can purr in a beautiful way. All ideas come from someplace – from the source, they say. What separates people is their loves, because the ideas are out there, and you're attracted to those things you love. You catch those and you're thrilled.' "
So ... with no further ado, I bring you the sweetly sinister sounds of David Lynch ...
1st, Ryan sent me 2 excellent recent Banksy bits ... Thanks, R!

"Street artist Banksy continues his art installations in New York City this month with his latest work taking a jab at the famous icon Ronald McDonald. On October 16, a fiberglass replica of Ronald McDonald showed up outside a McDonalds in the South Bronx.
The sculpture diverts from the typical ones you may see at McDonald’s in that it has oversized, red clown shoes and the face of the Greek God Hermes. It also has one leg up, waiting for his shoe to be shine by an actual person."
This is horrible. Help STOP China from making and selling keychains with living animals inside of them HERE.
