    Default David Lynch's Interview Project

    I stumbled across this website a few days ago. It is the latest web project by filmmaker David Lynch, best known for his dark surrealist films (Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive...). For this "Interview Project" his son and some crew members are taking a road trip across the United States, stopping to interview random people. The link shows the route they have taken so far.

    I have always wanted to do something like this. There is a certain appeal in interviewing random people simply because everyone is so fascinating...even in their dull sameness. I wonder if something like this would be considered entertainment. Sure, it may be fun or at least interesting to watch these clips of people discussing their lives but more than that it is....almost spiritual? I'm not sure if that is quite the word that I am looking for but I will try to explain.

    Individual people are totally unique. Not just unique in the sense that everyone is different than everyone else. We are all unique because we are all sentient, thinking beings. Each human, whether or not they are articulate or intelligent or educated or whatever experiences the world knowing that he or she is alive. We haven't encountered anything like us yet in this universe. We are creatures that think, feel, and perceive more than anything else that we know. This is why we are to be treasured and celebrated.

    This Interview Project is a celebration and examination of the human condition. Interviewing a variety of individuals is perhaps the simplest way to celebrate the simultaneous diversity and unity between people.

    I become so entranced by learning different people...what have their experiences shown them? How do the feel about this or that? Why did they move here or do this? What did they do with what they were given?

    We all have to move through life as a hyper conscious entity filtering, reflecting, and acting upon information and environment.

    I don't think anyone will ever be sure just what we are and what we are doing. But we will always be fascinated by each other even when we are boring.

    Figures... unsurprisingly, David Lynch is also an INFJ.
    Listen to me, baby, you got to understand, you're old enough to learn the makings of a man.

    I completely agree with the O.P. and I've always dreamed of doing that as well.

    I'm taking a journalism class right now, so we'll see where that leads.......

    Are you serious?

    I've always wondered what his type was.

    Any links, or reasons for typing him INFJ?
