David Lynch Teaches Typing
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.
