Culture: David Lynch to open “Club Silencio” in Paris

  • David Lynch opening predictably odd nightclub: Perhaps you’re familiar with filmmaker David Lynch, whose movies are broadly seen as prime examples of inscrutable, “outer-edge” American cinema — perhaps none quite as famous as 2001’s Mulholland Drive. Well, yesterday came word that Lynch is in the works of designing and opening “Club SIlencio,” a 1920’s style Parisian nightclub modeled after the Mulholland Drive location of the same name. We’ll be honest, this is rather shocking to us. We could imagine George Lucas opening a fake Mos Eisley Cantina, for example, but David Lynch’s “Club SIlencio?” Just too weird. source

Culture: Bad idea for school play: Scarface. Al Pacino fudgin’ proud

  • Next semester: Showgirls. Perhaps this wasn’t the kind of material that was begging for 8-year-olds to perform it, but hey, if there’s anything the Internet knows, it’s tasteless. Mashable overreacted to the impact of this video, calling it the greatest viral video ever, only to get a number of criticisms in their comments (poor Brenna Ehrlich gets that a lot). We’re calling shenanigans on this one. It’s too bad of an idea to be real. source
