One week after speaking with Laura Dern for SOMA's April issue, I had the great fortune to be able to interview her Blue Velvet and Inland Empire director David Lynch for the magazine's current May issue. Speaking to me via cell phone from a Manhattan-traversing car, the soft-spoken Lynch discussed his 30-year practice of transcendental meditation (the subject of his new book Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity), his recent 3-hour masterpiece, his creative process, and his budding love affair with DV. For the full story from one of American cinema's true visionaries, check out the feature, entitled "The Blissful Idea Man."
