An artist as provocative (read: crazy) as David Lynch can't be placed into a box. We primarily know him as a film-maker that weirds us out. But many of you aren't aware that Lynch has proven himself capable of weirding people out across several platforms. Here's a rundown of Lynch's outside hobbies. Please don't put any in your mouth.

Club Silencio

David Lynch has decided to get into the nightclub game (perhaps inspired by Brandon Walsh and the Peach Pit After Dark), and the Paris club Silencio is his first foray. Named after the club in Mulholland Drive, Silencio doesn't feature any apparent illusions, but it does have black-on-black toilet bowls and salty nuts hand-picked by the director himself. That, and chairs designed to "induce and sustain a specific state of alertness and openness to the unknown". I'm good standing.

Crazy Clown Time

Though he's collaborated in the past on music for his films, Lynch is now beginning a second or third or whatever career as a recording artist. His debut album of electro pop, Crazy Clown Time, is in the works and should drop soon with guest vocals from Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.


David Lynch first trained to be a painter before he studied film-making. And, though, it was his films that first earned him attention, he's created many paintings over the years, stating that "all my paintings are organic, violent comedies." But not in a Paul Blart kind of way. Not content to work with typical mixed medias, Lynch also began gluing pieces of raw meat to his work. He says of the above piece Rat Meat Bird, "That roast beef has gone through a strange metamorphosis. It was bigger when I started, but one day a squirrel came by and took a big hunk out of it. I'm kinda workin' with it."

David Lynch Signature Cup Coffee

Like Agent Dale Cooper, Lynch also enjoys a strong cup of coffee. So naturally, he would want to branch out and create his own signature cup. But he's not going to resort to the usual methods of coffee advertising with a young man surprising his sleeping lover with a freshly brewed cup. He's going to ... just see for yourself.

Daily Weather Reports

Until June of 2010, Lynch experimented with a career in meteorology. He would film a daily weather report from his basement to announce the weather in Los Angeles that day and post them to his personal website. And sometimes they made sense. But not always.
