David Lynch: "I Never Said I Wasn't Going to Make Films Anymore"

I recently discovered that filmmaker and musician David Lynch markets his own line of coffee (espresso, house roast, and decaf), and somehow, I was on the phone with the American iconoclast a few days later.

The condition for this interview was simple yet challenging: I was allowed to ask him only coffee-related questions.

I called his office and the receptionist transferred me to his extension. He said hello, we started talking, and then my phone started acting crazy because my new digital recording app wasn't working correctly. I flipped out.

"Don't panic, Jason," he said in that fascinating voice. "Just hang up, fix it, and call me back."
