With Thanksgiving creeping up on America, why not give thanks for a creepy legend? On Tuesday, David Lynch’s Absurda Studio releases a compilation of his weirdest work called The Lime Green Set which the auteur will celebrate by signing a few hundred copies at Amoeba Records in Hollywood.
The Lime Green Set includes a meticulously remastered version of my personal Lynchian favorite Eraserhead, as well as the more accessible Elephant Man and Blue Velvet.
But the apocrypha is where the fun is at, in the form of Elephant Man extras, Wild at Heart‘s Industrial Symphony No. 1 and Dumbland, all of which are making their DVD debuts.
Throw in the Eraserhead soundtrack, a new sound mix for Blue Velvet, a 40-page picture book plus Lynch’s surreal early short films like “Six Men Getting Sick” and “The Alphabet,” and you have the perfect holiday present for the strange characters in your life.
