It's the end of an era. This is the final episode of the first run of The Arts Fuse Podcast. Matt is moving to New Orleans, and Lucas is taking an extended hiatus and then moving back to Dublin, Ireland. For this episode, Matt and Lucas kick back and have a friendly chat between two good old boys, discussing the bizarre OJ Simpson Twitter feed, and how we're more easily bored these days.
The fellas then take a deep dive into Matt Hanson's review of Martin Scorsese's new Netflix documentary Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story and let their obsessions drive the content.
From Matt's review:
"Unsurprisingly, the main subject’s notorious elusiveness means that expectations of some ostensibly “real” or “intimate” look at Dylan’s inner life, both at the time the tour was being filmed and looking back via contemporary interviews, will be frustrated. He’s not some all-knowing wizard calculatedly pulling the strings; instead, he is content to be the relatively quiet eye of the hurricane of talent that came together for a strange, adventurous, and memorable trip around the country during a particularly uneasy time in its history."
It's a very chill episode, with two friends having fun talking about movies and music and more.
Thanks to all of you who have listened and supported the show during its first run. Matt and Lucas are eternally grateful.
Have no fear! The Arts Fuse Podcast will be returning soon in a new format, this time being led by Deanna Costa, so keep an eye out and keep listening and reading the best arts coverage in the Boston area from The Arts Fuse.
For anyone who is wondering, this is where we've been getting almost all of the music you hear on the show: http://www.jazz-on-line.com/. Our closing theme has been "Anything Goes" by Patrick et son Orchestre de Danse.
