Some nights dreams are crazy vivid and last night was one of those nights. I woke up today with David Lynch on the brain and the only thing I can think of is that I had some serious crazy ass clown time dreams. Have you seem the "Crazy Clown Time" video (album of the same name released via Sunday Best) by David Lynch? The man definitely has an interesting opinion on Clowns scaring children…

Watch: "The Alphabet" by David Lynch

So with Lynch on the brain, I figured I'd share some classic Lynch with you. 1968's "The Alphabet" combines animation and live action and is about four minutes of what can only be described as agonizing beauty. It has a simple narrative structure relating a symbolically rendered expression of childhood and aging. The idea for "The Alphabet" came from Lynch's wife, Peggy Reavey, a painter whose niece, according to Lynch in Chris Rodley's Lynch on Lynch book, "was having a bad dream one night and was saying the alphabet in her sleep in a tormented way. So that's sort of what started The Alphabet going."
