Each week, FilmDrunk accumulates so much goodness in the comments section that at the end of the week, we reward a “winner” with a prize and recognize the best of the comments.  We use the Comments section of the Comments of the Week post (i.e., the post you’re reading) as a place to nominate comments you deem noteworthy.  And now you know.

This week’s prize package comes courtesy of Dark Night of the Soul, an album that was a collaboration between Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse — also Sarah Jessica Parker’s CB handle — with art direction and photography from David “I’m Wearing a Hat” Lynch. The awesome prize pack they’re giving away for our winner includes:

  • David Lynch DVDs: Dune, Mulhulland Drive, Lost Highway, Eraserhead
  • Deluxe Dark Night of the Soul album package (here’s a video trailer, here’s an “unpackaging” video)
  • Sparklehorse Catalogue: Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot, Good Morning Spider, It’s a Wonderful Life, Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain
  • Danger Mouse albums – both Gnarls Barkley albums

All in all, pretty solid.  And now for the winning comment.  It came from the 81-year-old High School Sweetheart Reunion post.

  • Chareth Cutestory says: Not since the Ardennes forest has he battled such a bulge.

I simply could not deny a succinct, accurate historical reference, wrapped around a joke about an old man’s boner. It’s a perfect embodiment of the spirit of FilmDrunk.  Honorable mentions below.

That’s all for this week, folks.  But put on your commenting boots and keep not sucking, because you never know what wacky prize I’ll be giving away.  It’s a secret.  Though… it would help if you’re not allergic to rodentia.
