Sunday, December 10th, 2006 * Day Dreams of Valentino

Last summer came home to find a mysterious message on my voicemail.  The man had a very thick Italian accent and since I’m the current “Lady in Black” he wanted to meet me.  When I called him back, he told me that he had written, directed and starred in a short film about Rudolph Valentino that he wanted me to see.  We arranged to meet up for coffee a few days later.

I have long been a fan of David Lynch.  My fascination with him started back in high school.  I was at my locker and I heard two teachers chatting a short distance away.  One of the teachers said, “I rented this film the other night called BLUE VELVET.  It was a filthy, disgusting, perverted piece of trash.  I was shocked!”  I smiled when I heard that.  To me, there could have been no greater endorsement!  I raced to my car after school and went straight to the video store and picked up a copy.  I went home and watched it before my parents got home from work.  They were very strict about what we watched and surely this film would have been forbidden.  As I sat in my parents darkened living room watching this strangely perverse film unfold, I remember being thrilled by it!  It was unlike anything I had ever seen before.  It was so strange, dark and oddly exhilarating.  I managed to watch and return it after school the next day.  I have been a HUGE David Lynch fan ever since.  When the chance came to see INLAND EMPIRE with David Lynch and Laura Dern in person, the call was too great for me to resist.  I waited in line for 2 hours before the show started just to get a good seat.  I was on a mission.
