The Scene Of The Scene

20. Così Fan Tutte.

Opera season continues! We saw Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte, performed at the Canadian Opera Company. Young lovers are tested with some cruel, nonconsensual pedagogy, which means this counts as a fun, comic opera.

Chris and Michael will let you know if the music and set design makes up for the plot.

18. PodCon 2.

We went to PodCon 2! We saw some live podcasts, went to some workshops on how to make podcasts, and met other podcast fans. And we recorded a live episode of The Scene Of The Scene about PodCon at PodCon! We have said the syllable “pod” too much.

Chris, Michael, Alex, and Sarah talked about how it was going. Recorded at the LiveU Recording Studio at PodCon 2. (Thanks!)

(Small, meaningless correction: Sessions were an hour long, not 90 minutes.)

17. The Price of Everything.

We saw The Price of Everything (Nathaniel Kahn, 2018), a documentary about the art world. It focuses on some of the artists, collectors, gallerists, historians, and especially the people at the auction houses who make the art world the money-crazed scene it is (or is understood to be) today.

Afterwards Chris and Michael had a chat about art and late capitalism but mostly art.

Kahn’s older documentary is My Architect. One of the less well known artists we mention is Larry Poons.

16. Connected.

We went and saw a live recording of Connected, a podcast about Apple products. Then we headed to a nearby bar to record our thoughts about the show (and about podcasts, live podcasts, and Apple products).

After recording, Chris (who has been a fan of Connected for a while) and Joy (who is new to the show) had a few drinks and discussed Pippin (among many other things). We probably should have kept the tape running.

[N.B. Query vs. Queery. Oh, and the Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh.]
