Above find my theories regarding the challenge I posted yesterday (repeated below). Does anybody else have some strong feelings about this?
Eraserhead Opening Sequence:
See if you can identify six locations in our neighborhood that might have inspired scenes in the character walk in the clip, starting at 6:07. Respond in the comments. Tomorrow I will post my theories about this.
My theories regarding the inspirations of these opening scenes are posted here.
Some historical images of 13th and Wood streets. Note the edge of the house that David Lynch probably lived in during his first year at PAFA on the right-hand side of the first shot, next to the building he refers to as “Bob’s Diner” in interviews.
The second image is of the city morgue (still standing, though now not the morgue) diagonally across the street from this corner that Lynch also frequently mentions in interviews.
