David Lynch Teaches Typ­ing

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE THIS MONTH -

bit.ly/lynchtyp­ing Yes, Twin Peaks is great – but where are the prac­ti­cal applications? En­ter David Lynch Teaches Typ­ing, a free game from Rhino Stew that splices the sur­re­al­ist ge­nius of the film­maker into a game that im­parts the ba­sics of touch typ­ing. Okay, so it’s not ex­actly Mavis Bea­con: nar­rated by “Lynch” him­self, the ex­pe­ri­ence starts by ex­plain­ing your key­board’s ‘home row’ be­fore tak­ing sev­eral sharp left turns in­volv­ing cry­ing ba­bies, un­du­lat­ing bugs and an en­tirely un­mer­ited smoke break. It’s equal parts funny and un­set­tling, and over all too soon. Given its par­o­dic tone, the men­tion of a full ver­sion is prob­a­bly a hoax – but if we do in­deed have to “sit in a bath­tub and make smack­ing noises with our hands” to sum­mon it forth, then so be it, we sup­pose.
