It would probably be naïve of me to express any astonishment whatsoever that one of the most notable news sources in the world has turned to relentless coverage of the Cyrus family. Yesterday CNN reported on young Miley's snogfest, and today it's an interview with her flat-ironed thespian father. You may have forgotten that Billy Ray Cyrus appeared in David Lynch's Mulholland Drive. Well now that I've reminded you, just try and forget that BRC played Gene in David Lynch's opus.
CNN's story/interview is titled "'Eraserhead' director inspired Billy Ray Cyrus," and in it Cyrus says the following: "I look back at it now and think that I may fit in more to the film community than I do Nashville, to tell you the truth. I love what I do." And also:
CNN: So will Miley ever remake "Achy Breaky Heart"?
Cyrus: I doubt it, but anything is a possibility. In 1991 I recorded "Achy Breaky Heart" and we are not too terribly far away from the 20-year anniversary, and there are some major stars who want to re-do that song.
I'm flirting with the idea. There's one cat in particular that if I told you who it was, it would blow your mind. But I've got to keep it under my hat right now.
Fascinating; can't wait to see who said mind-blowing cat may be. Anyhow, because we're on the subject of David Lynch and I actually want you to gain something of merit from this post, I thought I'd mention that Wild at Heart will be showing as The Belcourt's Midnight Movie this weekend, Aug. 28 & 29.
