FS Fix: Exit Through the Gift Shop
A lot of people don't realize that the Filmspotting podcast first started as a complementary forum for Adam and Matty to discuss their most recent work as street artists. Using the pseudonyms Captain Tea Bag and Tico Brahe, respectively, Adam and Matty pwned the burgeoning street art scene of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for the better part of four years. Eventually they expanded their reign of gonzo pop-art to the entire upper Midwest, but their careers ended rather abruptly after their installation art piece "Petty Gospel" -- in which they replaced Jeff Gordon's pit crew at the Texas Motor Speedway with Ladysmith Black Mambazo -- was derided by critics as "lazy" (everyone knows that Ladysmith are Tony Stewart die-hards). But the lads are given an opportunity to confront their former lives in this week's Filmspotting Fix as they discuss Banksy's "Exit Through the Gift Shop," a "documentary" chronicling the exploits of some of the street art movement's most notable artists, including Shephard Fairey and the legendary Banksy himself.
