Earn an MA in Film with David Lynch
Thursday, October 15, 2015
I discovered â via The Criterion Collection website, via filmmaker Juhyun Pak â that a university is offering a degree in David Lynch. Or David Lynch is teaching about his work. Or something. You get an MA in Film, learning from David Lynch. Possibly about his work. I think itâs a fair estimation he will offer extensive examples from his oeuvre.
Iâd love to attend.
Iâd hand in all my assignments wraaaaaaapped in plaaaaaaastic.
Or carved into logs (RIP Log Lady).
And ride into class on a mower.
Rather than an apple, Iâd bring heaps of cups of coffee with far too much sugar to teacher to provide his granulated happiness.
Iâd sdrawkcab kaeps ot evah, of course.
And Iâd rub out all my mistakes with my headâ¦
I reckon Iâve earnt my degree right there.
Juhyun (who pointed out the need to sdrawkcab kaeps) points out that only 17 graduates will be awarded Kwisatz Haderach honoursâ¦
â¦but killing Sting is a prerequisite.
As far-fetched as all this nonsense sounds, further investigation reveals the course is being offered by the Maharishi University of Management.
Thatâs right, the Very Richy Maharishi Mahesh Yogi â the âgiggling guruâ of Beatle-related infamy (replace the words âSexy Sadieâ with âMaharishiâ in the Beatles song to gauge John Lennonâs final opinion) â founded a university. It offers an âholisticâ approach to learning.
So yogic flying is probably a co-requisite.
But more importantly, Iâm probably bang-on with the âfar-fetched nonsenseâ.
