Publisher's Summary

Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds is up for eight Oscars. Though far-fetched (it features Jewish-American GIs taking Nazi scalps), some would say it's his least gory picture yet. Kurt talks to Tarantino about his influences, from Leni Riefenstahl to Stan Lee's Sergeant Fury.

Next, the Guggenheim Museum's walls are bare at the moment to make room for a piece by conceptual artist Tino Sehgal called "This Progress." Kurt talks with Sehgal about the work: a series of four improvised conversations the visitor experiences along the building's famous circular ramp, including one with a child no older than twelve.

Then, With the rough weather this winter, writer Henry Alford has been cooped up inside more than he'd like. He's been listening to the radiator clanging, banging, and hissing so long that it sounds like music. So he created his own composition for radiators, and he got a professional opinion from classical music critic Fred Plotkin.

Finally, British singer-songwriter V.V. Brown mixes pop, soul, rock, punk, and hip-hop to create a seasoned sound that belies her age: twenty-six. She stops by Studio 360 with her band for an acoustic performance of songs off her new record, Travelling Like the Light. [Broadcast Date: February 27, 2010]
