3/4 – 9/4/23 – Nick Cave, Paul Rosolie & Russell Crowe

news on the march

Welcome to Monday’s News on the March – The week that was in my digital world.

Some enticing video interviews came to my YT news feed in recent days including the following from three of my favourite podcasts:

Nick Cave: Christ, the Devil and the Duty to Offend
Video interview at UnHerd

Nick Cave’s song Bright Horses dedicated to the memory of Cave’s son Arthur remains the most viewed post on my blog with 2000 views in the past year. I’m proud that song ‘headlines’ my blog as far as popularity.

Faith, Hope & Carnage: Join legendary musician and bestselling writer Nick Cave as he discusses his new book and beyond with UnHerd’s Freddie Sayers. (Watch entire interview here)

Paul Rosolie: Amazon Jungle, Uncontacted Tribes, Anacondas, and Ayahuasca | Lex Fridman Podcast #369
Video podcast interview at Lex Fridmen

I always enjoy hearing stories from bold adventurers and this one didn’t fail to impress. It reminded me in part of Christopher McCandless’s story showcased in the Sean Penn movie Into The Wild which I wrote about here.

There is a part in Rosolie’s story you can view here where he suffered a dire MRSA infection and literally called his Mummy to help him get out of the Amazon Jungle. If he didn’t receive ‘immediate’ western medical attention he would most likely have been insect-food and compost.

Paul Rosolie is a conservationist, explorer, author, filmmaker, real life Tarzan, and founder of Junglekeepers which today protects over 50,000 acres of threatened habitat. (View entire video interview here)

Drinker’s VIP Lounge – Russell Crowe
Video interview at The Critical Drinker

I have been an admirer of Russell Crowe’s acting since he stood out in the independent Australian film – The Sum of Us. My favourite performances from him are The Insider (1999) and mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr. in the biopic A Beautiful Mind (2001). Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) and the crime drama American Gangster

In this episode of VIP Lounge, I had a few beers and a chat with Russell Crowe about his life and career, some of his biggest and most memorable roles, and his upcoming supernatural horror The Pope’s Exorcist. (View entire video interview here)

  1. Hi Matthew, you’ve got some interesting stuff here. Never heard of Nick Cave! I’ll have a listen. Yes, Russell Crow, great, intelligent actor. Love his films. Did you have a good Easter? Best wishes, Sharon

    • Hi Sharon. Thanks for commenting on this. If you like the music of Leonard Cohen, then you’ll most likely like Nick. Cohen was a a big inspiration for him. Special mentions to his masterpieces The Ship Song, Into My Arms and Bright Horses. Tupelo is good to listen to from his earlier years.
      I like Crowe, but his latest movie on exorcisms hasn’t been too well received although many admired his performance.
      I had a very tranquil Easter thank you and how about you? Cheers Matt

  2. Ok Matt, I’ll give Nick Cave a listen and report back! Yes, Russell Crowe’s latest flick, doesn’t sound like I’d be in a rush to watch it! My Easter was quiet and the weather was good – until Monday!! Lots of rain and wind! So it is! Catch you again soon. S
