92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With God
We’ve had some big names answer our Culture Klatsch questionnaire, but for the latest installment, we may have gotten the biggest name conceivable: God Himself.
God is doing the rounds to promote his new book, The Last Testament: A Memoir co-authored with David Javerbaum (former head writer and exec producer of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”)
God’s co-author David Javerbaum will be at 92YTribeca on November 17 to discuss this new “telleth-all” tome with This American Life’s Ira Glass. Here are God’s answers to the Culture Klatsch:
Where do you go for news when you start your day?
I wake up knowing the location and activity of every sentient being and atom in the universe. But I do like Hoda and Kathie Lee. They’re a hoot!
What are your favorite websites?
Easily my favorite is menwholooklikekennyrogers.com. I could be anybody on that site.
How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
Facebook, never; I have grave privacy concerns. But I tweet (@TheTweetOfGod) all the time. It is My new favorite way to communicate with human beings. My Son, on the other hand, still prefers showing up on pancakes.
What book are you currently reading (or the last one you read)? Print or digital?
I read all three of the Stieg Larsson novels. They are horribly-written nonsensical tripe. Yet I could put them down not.
I’m a conscientious objector to Facebook

High Line: The Inside Story of NYC’s Park in the Sky
Manhattan’s wildly successful High Line Park — an old elevated rail line that was retrofitted into a stunning park — cost about $153 million. At first glance it might seem like a big investment for a park, but consider the benefits.On October 28, the two men responsible for this innovative urban reclamation project, Joshua David and Robert Hammond, are coming to 92YTribeca to share their story of reclamation on the High Line. More info and tickets, here.
Not only does the city take care of a eyesore, but the popularity of High Line has brought in an estimated $2 billion in new developments, the New York Times reports.
