By now you know David Lynch was in town over the weekend for the AFI Dallas International Film Festival; you saw the pic of him hawking his coffee beans at Central Market, right? Anyhoo, Lynch agreed to a quick chit-chat at the W Hotel with a rookie interviewer, who asked him about product placement. Long question begets short answer, which you'd be advised not to play too loud. Always remember: ear muffs. --Robert Wilonsky

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
