I don’t claim to know that much more about it than is explained here, but it just landed in my inbox with this exciting line-up and I thought I’d share. BOY SCOUT magazine. According to BS, it’s,
“Intimate conversations between the world’s most creative people featuring profiles with writers, artists, thumb nosers and creative thinkers who posses the spit and polish to get things done. Boy Scout burns with diverse, artistic expression and crackles with an authentic, off-center spirit, highlighting subjects who continue to break revolutionary new ground through a wellspring of popular, untraditional, gay, and concrete culture.”
Created by Workhouse and Marcel Mutt as a commemorative in honor of the agency’s 20th anniversary, interviews include Kate Pierson (B-52’s), Tama Janowitz (Slaves of New York), Matthew Modine (Stranger Things), Mele Mel & Scorpio (Grandmaster’s Furious5), Bebe Buell(Pop Culture Icon!), Legs McNeil (Please Kill Me), John Holmstrom (Punk Magazine), Amos Poe(Blank Generation), Anton Perich (Experimentalist!), Lady Rizo (Showstopper!), Penny Arcade(Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore!), Jonny Podell (Podell Agency), Jimmy Webb (I Need More), Jenn Hampton (Parlor Gallery) and many more.
“From the cave man to the campfire, the serenade of storytelling appears to be obscenely absent within the impatient immediate. In creating Boy Scout, I realized how very much I miss the art of listening. The bigness of biography. The siren of each soul singing. Tales of triumphs and tragedies. Of hopes and hardships. Of wants and desires. Of sound and fury.
Boy Scout illuminates the voice behind the words. The clarity of heart in the vocalization of each subject’s spirit. To hear passion and pride, nostalgia and need — this radio play return to truth — gives greater importance to the mystery of meaning, syntax, cadence and cool. Listen and learn.” – Adam Nelson, Workhouse, CEO
