How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 204 (or lures and Lurie)
Though you have little interest or experience in fishing, a friend (who knows your unique sense of humor) lends you a DVD of the 1990s fishing television show Fishing With John, in which musician/ actor John Lurie invites celebrity acquaintances to go fishing with him.
You end up loving it, as much for the strange theme song and intentionally inaccurate narrations as for the nuanced, David Lynch-evoking interactions between Lurie and his guests. The Willem Dafoe and Dennis Hopper episodes, alone, justify viewing this show.
