It’s okay to talk to strangers

Americana, road trips, conversation with perfect strangers. If you’re into that kinda thing, then you’ll love David Lynch’s Interview Project. I stumbled upon the series doing research for a project and immediately wondered how I hadn’t heard about it before. From June 2009 until May of this year, Lynch’s team took a journey across the United States and back, interviewing anyone they ran into along the way. Some are uplifting, some are strange and others downright depressing, but all of them have a story to tell. Among the startling revelations to me were just how deeply religious this country still is – sometimes to the detriment of not taking responsibility for one’s own life. Anyways, here’s two of my favorites. I think that once you get going, you’ll be as captivated by this as I am.
