For some reason my (few) anxiety attacks have manifested as spontaneous allergies, so benedryl seems to handle this for me.

But then again I try to keep my David Lynch exposure to a minimum, I don't have anything in my cabinet that really manages my breakouts of 'WTF?!?!?!'

The most unsettling thing David Lynch has ever created is David Lynch brand coffee.

Quite possibly the most unexpected thing to ever find opening up the Twin Peaks gold collection.

They won't stop until everyone is taking a tylenol each hour.
 
2013-04-20 12:44:34 AM
I won't question whether they got a meaningful effect.

But why Tylenol? Did they explain why they didn't use aspirin, codeine, alcohol, pot, the smell of fresh baked bread, a hot or cold shower, a blow job, etc?

A Pabst Blue Ribbon could very well have similar effects - especially if administered on joyrides.

Not really surprising. Paracetamol (Acetominephen) is a weak CB1 (cannabanoid) receptor agonist.

Tylenol?! Fark that shiat! PABST BLUE RIBBON!

Huh... kinda makes sense when you think about it.   For all it's capabilities our brain is limited (can only be so densely packed, only so large, etc.), so combining physical & emotional sensation handling in to a single area (sub-process, bundle of ganglia, whatever you want to use to describe it) does make sense.

It's fascinating that now we're finding possible proof of this and really can't cool.  We're just this gigantic evolutionary kludge.

TFA:Even for a hardcore David Lynch fan, the idea that a film of his would be used to weird people out in a psychology experiment is a tad weird.
No, that makes perfect sense.
TFA:But it gets much stranger than that - fast.
This ALWAYS happens with David Lynch. You guys haven't seen many of his movies, have you.

It had something to do with the telling of time.

Now I Is!: You guys haven't seen many of his movies, have you.


David Lynch films are the reason I run, screaming, away from movie theaters.  He just makes long, boring, self-indulgent drivel.  Years ago, I rented Mulholland Drive, and about a third of the way through it, I realized I could cut the viewing time down to next to nothing by fast-forwarding through the long (I mean really farking long) exhibitionist camera shots throughout the movie.  Twin Peaks was weird just for the sake of being weird.  It's like junkfood... you may think it tastes good, but when it's all said and done... you get absolutely nothing beneficial from it, and actually end up worse-off then you were before.  And don't get me started on Eraserhead... that ridiculous monstrosity was the film equivalent of taking a massive, stinking crap in a Motel 6.  I realized my hate for Lynch after sitting through that.

Dune was the only decent thing he's ever done... and that's only because I'm a massive nerd.

So... to summarize...

When I started to get really weirded out I like a nice soothing cup of mescaline tea, then I snack on some high-protein, all-natural jimson weed seeds.  If it's in the evening and I'm still a little torqued I follow that up with a couple of orange juice glasses of Hungarian bathtub Absinthe with an extra tablespoon of wormwood mixed in.  Some people add sugar to their absinthe, but I care about my health so I skip that.

I find this combination really helps to calm me down so I can handle the weekly prayer meetings or socialize with the PTA book club.

Twin peaks was AWFUL.  It had so much potential, but very early on i realized I was just being farked around with by the writers and nothing would ever tie together in the end.

HEY! IF WE MAKE SOMETHING WEIRD AND LACKING CONTEXT! PEOPLE THINK ITS DEEP!

I discovered this too but then I also discovered if I take it more than 2 days in a row it seems to go from soothing med which helps you sleep into something that turns me into a high anxiety freak.  Take only when necessary.

Dune was good. Elephant Man was very good. Lynch is a fine director, just an incredibly bad writer.
 
2013-04-20 01:05:26 PM
And what if they showed "Rabbits" to a furry?
 
2013-04-20 01:27:58 PM
Problem with Tylenol is you don't wanna mix it with alcohol. So that right there's a non-starter.

The best thing about "Twin Peaks" was the Psych reunion show they did a few seasons ago. Thats it.

My brothers ex wife was a David Lynch obsessive and while I had been interested to check out some of his work, I had never got around to watching anything by him. She subjected me to "Lost Highway" for my first flick. The only other time Ive ever been visibly angry after watching a movie was "The Last Exorcism". Just farking awful.

I watched Eraserhead a few years later and while I wouldn't say i enjoyed it, it was at least interesting in a "what in the flying fark" way.

//Made it 2 episodes in to Twin Peaks and said "Done". Im sure plenty of people are about to file in and say I just didn't "get it"

I find Lynch's stuff works when it at least kind of follows a story: Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks.  When it gets too abstract, like that Inland Empire thing, I just don't find it worth the effort to watch.  It really is like listening to someone describe their acid trip in great detail.

I'd rather perform cunninlingus on my grandmother than watch a David Lynch movie...

I'm pretty sure that scene is in a David Lynch movie.

David Lynch-brand Tylenol does have some unfortunate side effects.

Why are there no Tylenol in the jungle?

Because the parrots-eat-em-all.
