David Lynch Had No Good Idea For Kanye West


David Lynch

This is what happens when it is a slow-news day, we write about things that could have but didn’t really happen. Famous director and unique character David Lynch said to the Daily Beast that he almost made a video for Kanye West’s ‘Blood on the Leaves’, which is one his favorite songs. However, Lynch’s usually very fertile imagination stayed totally blank:

‘We almost worked together, but I never got the ideas. I feel I let him down a little bit. I was going to do the music video for “Blood on the Leaves,” but it never happened. I didn’t come up with any ideas that I thought he would like.’

Wow, no idea for Kanye West? I can’t even imagine the disappointment of the super-ego rap star, and if he did manage to dry out the inventiveness of one of our most creative directors, there is reason to be upset.

‘Kanye came up to the house one day. Kanye’s a good guy, and a great musician,’ continued Lynch, ‘I loved the song, and that’s what brought us together, but I couldn’t come up with ideas that thrilled either one of us.’

Come on! I have a problem with this, since, if I truly like something, a song, a movie, a book, I find it inspirational, I work this way and most people do… I wonder what really happened. Lynch has the most fertile imagination on the planet, Lynch and West are both crazy in a way, they like to shock and surprise people and they both have a wild interior world which often makes no sense to me, so I have a hard time to believe Lynch didn’t have any ideas for a Kanye West song!

But suppose Kanye started one of his unbelievable rants which always sounds like some thought that has been through Google translate at least 20 times before being translated back in English? Even David Lynch could not make sense of it, and he probably said well, thank you Kanye. He could have been just polite here by saying he had no good idea.
