Terence Michael Dean, 37, was arrested in September in Cool, Calif., after a homeowner arrived from a weekend away and found that Dean had commandeered his house and set up various confusing rituals. Dean (who ran from the house clothed only in a sheet) had turned on all faucets, placed packages of meat in the sink and bathtub, built a shrine of Buddha on a bongo drum, left a trail of potting soil from a walkway to the drum, left three plant stands in the garage holding teddy bears, unearthed about 100 houseplants in the yard, and left a cup of water containing a piece of paper reading "I love Cherry."

In September, police in Madison, Wis., said Milo G. Chamberlain's blood-alcohol content was .425, which experts said normally is attainable only by those either dead or in a coma, but he was picked up, quite conscious, allegedly causing a disturbance at a Marathon gas station, where he reportedly got into a fight with a gas pump before being restrained by passersby. Police said Chamberlain responded to each of their questions only by rattling off strings of numbers of no particular pattern. [Capital Times (Madison), 9-23-06]

VENICE, Italy, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- The Venice Film Festival has honored film director David Lynch with its Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement.

Lynch was honored in recognition of his unorthodox and complex directorial style in films such as "Eraserhead" and "Blue Velvet," said the BBC.

Lynch was at the festival to promote his newest picture, "Inland Empire," which has already reportedly confounded critics and drawn an explanation from its quirky director.

"Every film is like going into a new world, going into the unknown. But you should be not afraid of using your intuition, and feel and think your way through," Lynch said of the new film, in which actress Naomi Watts voices a talking rabbit.

Lynch's unusual directing style on the film even reached a point where its leads rarely understood its direction.

"The truth is I didn't know who I was playing -- and I still don't know," said "Inland Empire" star Laura Dern. "I'm looking forward to seeing the film ... to learn more."

Inmate Donny Johnson, serving three life terms in solitary confinement at the Pelican Bay State Prison in California, was the beneficiary of a showing of his acclaimed paintings at a gallery in the Mexican tourist village of San Miguel de Allende, according to a July New York Times report. Because of Johnson's isolation, his only "brush" is made from strands of his own hair; his "canvases" consist of blank postcards; and his medium is colors from decomposed M&M candies. Nonetheless, at least six of the paintings, which the Times reporter called "powerful," have sold for $500 each. [New York Times, 7-21-06]
