Watch this nine minute video of David Lynch and Patti Smith interviewing each other about Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, Pussy Riot and artistic inspiration.
In nine minutes, the two wonderful, eccentric minds veer between topics, discussing everything from Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet to Pussy Riot and artistic inspiration.
At the start, Smith explains her song Grateful arrived fully-formed in her head. Lynch on the other hand, explains that ideas don’t come quite so easily.
“I get ideas in fragments… it’s as if in the other room, there’s a puzzle… and the first piece I get is just a fragment of the whole puzzle, but I fall in love with this fragment, and it holds a promise for more,” he says.
Chatting about Pussy Riot, Smith says:
“This is something that goes back to biblical times. This kind of oppression and this kind of misunderstanding, taking young girls who have families and have hopes and dreams and putting them in prison for issuing a teenage prayer, really.”
