i’m in the middle of a hmmm, that’s an interesting quote that conjures up images of strange waterside conversations and then, hmmm, that’s overly romanticised bullocks… moment.
at first my thoughts are the fish feel the same but then, this means i’m going along with the quote, playing Ursi’s game and i’ll have none of that, thank you.
although i’ll keep trying i’m also quite sure i’ll never make any sense out of these matters any time soon but in the meantime…
here’s a fish. a silent fish. a fish that doesn’t produce metaphysical migraines.
”Because none of the things are yourself, not really. The ideas come from someplace else. It’s like fish,” he says.
What’s like fish? “The ideas,” says Lynch. “You didn’t make the fish. You caught the fish. Now you can cook it in a good way or a bad way, but that’s as far as it goes. The fish came from someplace else. And sometimes …” His eyes take on a faraway look. “Sometimes it talks back to you. Tells you how it wants to be cooked.”
big thanks going out to David Lynch for giving me the opportunity to use a crappy photo i was about to throw out. what strikes me is that we both have completely different thoughts on how fish interact with us, seems like most of mine say “get on with it and let me go ! “ interesting how they get cocky when they find out they’re next stop isn’t going to be a pan…
of ichthyological interest (and apart from the sassing), the pic above shows how fish eyes and olfactory thingies bulge out when in their environment, something we don’t see when a fish is held out of water. maybe the pic isn’t so crappy after all.

‘funny the things one thinks of when driving home after an afternoon of catch thirteen trout…
little does it know it’ll be going back home in a few seconds without ever having left the water, but then deception is all part of the game i guess.
