Happy Birthday David Lynch

by rosalyster

  1. When I was 18, this guy I had a mega crush on asked me if I’d seen Eraserhead.
  2. I said yes.
  3. This was just a total lie. Forgive me. I thought it would make me seem cooler.
  4. The next thing that happened is I forgot I lied, and walked around for many years believing myself to have seen the movie Eraserhead.
  5. I don’t even know what it’s about.
  6. Is it one of those films where it’s not really “about” anything, like it’s more sort of a meditation on hairstyles or electricity?
  7. The person who would know is my friend Caitie.
  8. You would love her – she is just exactly your type, and has never had to lie about watching a movie in order to seem cool.
  9.  I stayed at her house once and watched Mulholland Drive after everyone else had fallen asleep.
  10. This was a huge, huge mistake.
  11. I got so scared after that face bit that I couldn’t move even to turn off the TV, and I couldn’t close my eyes for very long in case The Face was waiting for me in my head.
  12. As you know, the face bit is like right at the beginning, so I had to just crunch up terrified on the sofa for hours and hours.
  13. It was quite the ordeal.
  14. Caitie, of course, found this to be the funniest thing ever. I bet you would as well.
  15. You guys should definitely be friends.
  16. I will never watch the movie Eraserhead.
