    We'd probably drive to some corner in Hollywood to watch David Lynch just sit there with a cow by his side. Wait, he already did that. Now the famously offbeat, dream-loving, red curtain-obsessed, squeaky-clean-in-manner-but-not-in-dialogue director is looking for America, and the authentic, well-told stories of people who rarely get the limelight.

    His "Interview Project" is due on June 1 at davidlynch.com, and it is probably the one watchable thing we're looking forward to most this summer. Just the preview puts a lump in the throat. And while some may cock an eyebrow at the man making it -- David Lynch, the notoriously dark helmer with a penchant for mystery and mayhem? -- we think it is a perfectly Lynchian foray. Consider that so many Lynch movies are set in small towns, and that he seems to take a real interest in the overlooked details in our everyday lives.

    We can't wait. By the way, everyone who lives in Los Angeles is checking in on Mr. Lynch's semi-daily weather report, we hope.
