David LynchIt's turning out to be a bumper week for fans of cinematic oddball David Lynch. Yesterday, saw the release of the Dark Night of the Soul album, a collaboration between Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse and other artists which includes Lynch providing vocals on two tracks (the original limited edition release last year also included a 100 page booklet of photos by the director).

Now comes news that supporters of Lynch, whose finer works include Blue Velvet, The Elephant Man and Twin Peaks, can help fund a brand new documentary about him. What's more, Lynch has created a limited edition self-portrait for the project so anyone donating $50 can own it as a print or adorned on a t-shirt or tote bag. Hmmm, that all sounds suspiciously normal...

What's more, Lynch has created a limited edition self-portrait for the project so anyone donating $50 can own it as a print or adorned on a t-shirt or tote bag (see the pic below). Hmmm, that all sounds suspiciously normal...

The documentary is titled LYNCHthree and those of you who take an interest in ascending number orders won't be surprised to learn there are two feature length preceding parts (there's a clip from the first one below). One and Two follow the director through the production of 2006's infuriatingly irritating INLAND EMPIRE (and both appear on that film's DVD release) so it remains to be seen whether Three will continue in that vein or follow Lynch on a new project. Don't expect any talking heads or explanation about his working methods in these documentaries though (as if you did).

So, if you want to head donate some pocket money, be the first to see exclusive footage from LYNCHthree and own a splendid print by the man himself, head on over to the official site. You can also follow updates at Lynch's highly entertaining Twitter page, which veers from the poetic ("This weekend I'm going to try to find out if I'm connected to the moon", "I'm pretty sure I'm connected to the moon.") to the downright odd ("I have applied the hands to the holes").

Here's the David Lynch self portrait:
