Louis Theroux: ‘I worry about not coming up to scratch’

He made a film on Joe Exotic a decade before Tiger King, lulls interviewees into personal revelations – and can rock a leather suit. So why is he so anxious?“There’s no getting away from the fact that, even aged 50, I’m a slightly awkward person, a fearful person, worry-prone,” says Louis Theroux, wriggling in his seat. The film-maker picks up and puts down a coffee without drinking. He wears all blue: navy sweater, stock denim, one of those indestructible plastic Casio watches on his wrist. “I ...

"It’s more necessary than ever to find the empathetic experience of meeting another person, being in another culture, to smell it, to suffer it, to put up with the hardship and the nuisances of travel, all of that matters."

The pro-travel position, aspirationally articulated by Paul Theroux, quoted in (NYT). Nice photo of Theroux's workspace at the link. I'm a longtime fan of that genre of photography, and I declare this example worth a click. I'm also a longtime participant in the debate about whether to travel, and I'm more of a con than a pro. In that light, I'll say that Theroux sets a somewhat high bar for what you're supposed to be doing in this thing called travel — "empathetic experience," "being in, "sme...

Paul Theroux At (Almost) 80

“I was once a hot shot, I was once the punk,” Theroux said. “And anyone who has once been a punk, eventually you’re older, and you see the turning of the years as it is. We all feel it, every writer. They might deny it. But they do, they all feel it.” – The New York Times

Unexpected Events, International Trade, and Contractual Obligations

In a globalized economy, unexpected events on the other side of the world can easily have direct economic impacts on the Canadian economy. Complex supply chains and strategic imports can be quickly disrupted by political, social, or medical issues. One contemporary example would be with the coronavirus emerging in China. The China Council for The Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), which was founded in 1952, and is responsible for developing business cooperation and exchange with other cou...

How the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ Franchise Became an Accidental Ode to Feminism and Female Sexuality

With the arrival of a new millennium, Hollywood believed they had to go further with their filmmaking. Gone was the simplicity of ‘90s filmmaking and in their place stood films that epitomized the nature of the word “extreme,” flash and whizbang with messages that were going to get inside your head even if they had to be beaten in.  Or maybe that was just the experience of watching McG’s Charlie’s Angels . In 2000, audiences got a new take on a trio of beautiful women backed by an anonymous...

‘Lady and the Tramp’ Review: The First Disney+ Original is…Totally Adequate?

The slew of live-action and computer-animated remakes of Disney’s hand-drawn animated classics have largely managed to feel creatively bereft, but they have never been entirely pointless. Why does a remake of Aladdin or Dumbo or The Lion King exist? If nothing else, to further fill the coffers of the Walt Disney Company, so that its executives can pull a Scrooge McDuck and dive through the cash. It’s a cynical view, and arguably a point that doesn’t impact anyone who isn’t a shareh...

Radio: You wrote in about the History of Rock and Roll and its surprising influence on huge chart successes

The columns of the last two weeks covering KHJ’s (930 AM) History of Rock and Roll and local radio in Iowa brought out numerous emails and letters, which reignited my enthusiasm for radio itself. I am not alone in wanting good radio, and I more than ever feel that radio is under-programmed – in the sense that it isn’t being programmed and promoted to its potential. I received a few letters from not only current and former management and staffers of Waterloo, Iowa’s Rock 108, but listeners as wel...

I doubt if the author wrote the headline, but it is what caused me to click — only because I was just thinking that the term "blue wave" had been abandoned and the elections were now being discussed as some sort of dead heat to the finish line. Ihave quite a lot of sympathy for certain Trump voters, and (wait, please, let me finish) I've been making a list of some con...
