According to the caption of Lars’ post, after hearing the interview of Lars, A.O. Scott has texted him today and asked if he wanted to have a Zoom conversation with him while they are both in self-quarantine.
Here is the rest of the story from Lars Ulrich’s pen:
“In December I was doing a year-end review piece with Rolling Stone and the writer Kory Grow asked which celebrity I would most like to quarantine with. My answer was A.O. Scott, chief film critic at the NYTimes whose writings, opinions, and aesthetic I’ve been a fan of for a long time.
The morning the piece was released, I got an unexpected text with a standing invitation from the man himself that any time I was in New York, he’d love to hang out and talk film, etc.”
“A few weeks later the good folks at the New York Times suggested we have our first conversation over Zoom and turn it into an article which is now up on NYTimes.com and contains excerpts from our 90-minute conversation. Crazy Fucking Cool!”
