Chuck Klosterman Interview: 20 Years of "Fargo Rock City"

Well Disguised

20 years ago this month, Chuck Klosterman released his first book, Fargo Rock City. It was a watershed moment for pop culture. For Chuck personally, it launched his career as he became one of the foremost pop culture critics and thought leaders in the world. For those of us smart and semi-smart types who sometimes wondered why we loved this often juvenile music, it might as well have been a Holy script. It's not a coincidence that the subtitle for his most famous book, "Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto" inspired the subtitle for this podcast. Chuck was gracious enough to speak to me about the impact "Fargo Rock City" had on his career, how he feels about that music today, his interview with Jimmy Page, what it's like to listen to Black Sabbath and Kanye West at basically the same time, and several other topics. I'm ecstatic to release this episode and hope you all enjoy it. Thank you Chuck so much for coming on Well Disguised.You're smart enough to find Fargo Rock City on your own, but here's one way:https://www.amazon.com/Fargo-Rock-City-Odyssey-Dakota/dp/0743406567Also, if you want to read the interview with Jimmy Page we discuss, here's a link:https://www.gq.com/story/jimmy-page-led-zeppelin-men-of-the-year-klostermanOn the show I brought up Chuck's podcast with Chris Ryan.

"L'uomo visibile" di Chuck Klosterman: un viaggio psichedelico nella mente umana

Le recensioni di The BookAdvisor

Non vi rivelerò il benché minimo dettaglio sulla trama di questo libro, perché è una lettura che non può e non deve essere minimamente anticipata. Vi basti sapere che si costruisce su un lungo dialogo tra una psicologa e un paziente curioso, un ricercatore che ha trovato un modo per osservare da vicino, molto vicino, le persone, rimanendo tuttavia nascosto grazie all’applicazione delle sue conoscenze scientifiche che gli hanno permesso di inventare una tuta particolare che gli garantisce l’invisibilità.Qui per leggere la recensione su The BookAdvisor: https://thebookadvisor.it/recensioni/libri-in-pillole/luomo-visibile-di-chuck-klosterman-recensione-libro/
