Strange and Stranger
I love this picture Shane Lavalette managed to dig up - William Eggleston and David Lynch.
While it has often been pointed out that David Lynch - and Gus Van Sant and several others - have been directly influenced by Eggleston - and who can't see that in everything from Twin Peaks to the Straight Story to Mulholland Drive, like Shane I'm most intrigued by the ensuing conversation here.
Can you imagine being a fly on the wall to that one? My guess is it was most akin to eavesdropping on two Martians...
All I can say is we would be much worse off without the both of them.
