You can head over to Arthur Blog now or here’s the lowdown on what’s been going on over there:
Arthur Magazine presents PARADISE NOW: The Living Theatre in Amerika. Yeah, this looks pretty rad. (Sat here for a few minutes trying to figure out how to describe this…realized it was futile, watch the preview.) Documents the Living Theatre’s ’68 to ’69 important and historical American tour.

Hidden in Plain Sight. Great article for Arthur on Yahoo!Music blog on the state of mass medias pathetic coverage of any of the arts and the corresponding state of the commercialization of artists. I think blogs/internet are the last saving grace for the arts coverage, especially music. It is rather sad when you think about the prospects of discovering anything new or relevant in the mass media; unless, as the article mentions, you happen upon the dozens of new commercials now exploiting the full indie artist repertoire.
