  2. Emily Gould is the author of And The Heart Says Whatever, founder of Emily Books and a former Gawker writer. She’s taking part in the “Being Twentysomething” talk at 92YTribeca on Wed, Nov 28 with an all-star panel of experts who have given some thought to the trials and tribulations of being young. First, let’s check out the culture diet of the now thirtysomething.
Where do you go for news when you start your day?
I ritualistically listen to WNYC interspersed with WFUV while I make coffee, and I have the kind of coffeemaker you have to stand there and pour water through the filter manually so it takes a long time and I get my entire daily news dosage. My friend Ruth does the same thing and says it’s her “coffee-making practice,” like how some people have a “meditation practice.”
What are your favorite websites?
Lately it feels to me like the blogs I most love to read are all about parenting. I don’t know what that’s about, since I’m not a parent and not likely to be one anytime soon. I guess I’m sort of a domestic voyeur. One of my favorite blogs right now is called http://thekidhasarrived.tumblr.com/. I also love my friend Rebecca’s blog about her adventures in foster parenting.
How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
Way, way, way, way too much. I periodically detox. I’m very all or nothing with them. My bookstore, Emily Books, is digital, so I use these services a lot to be in touch with our customers and subscribers — but that’s also an excuse for being addicted to them. Oops!
What book are you currently reading (or the last one you read)? Print or digital?
I am rereading Barbara Browning’s I’m Trying To Reach You, as an ebook. It was our November pick. It’s about a guy who gets obsessed with the idea that a mystery is unfolding in YouTube comments that involves the deaths of Michael Jackson, Les Paul, Pina Bausch and Merce Cunningham. It’s actually a lot less weird than that description makes it seem, and it’s very funny. It’s also largely set in the area downtown near NYU and upstate near Woodstock, and it’s fun to visit familiar places in fiction. You know, to see a block you know well immortalized. “It’s that crappy Morton Williams on Bleeker!” That kind of thing.
What magazines do you subscribe to?
Only the New Yorker and n+1. I sometimes get into a habit of buying Us Weekly on the newsstand, but it hasn’t been good since Janice Min left. I used to subscribe to Time Out New York but I cancelled my sub when they panned my book in an idiotic, sexist way. I’m sure they’re still reeling from the pain of losing me.
What are your current (or all time) favorite television shows?
I am super into “Homeland” right now, as are we all (right?) And I am hotly anticipating the return of “Game of Thrones,” to the point where I might wear a costume to watch the season 3 premiere. Even if I have to do that alone.
What’s the last movie you saw?
Lincoln. Yawn.
What’s the last performance (dance/opera/theater) you attended?
Edgar Oliver’s one man show at Theater 80, Helen and Edgar. Amazing!!
What’s the last music purchase you made?
Martha Wainwright’s new album, Come Home To Mama. Martha Wainwright is a magical witch from another world.
What radio shows or podcasts do you listen to?
My favorite podcast is Baby Geniuses, a podcast by Lisa Hanawalt and Emily Heller. I met Lisa ("met" on Twitter) when she drew a portrait of a cat in a leather vest in exchange for a leather vest I was trying to get rid of. Following her on Twitter is very enriching. See, social media is not all bad!
What’s your favorite piece of art on display in your home?
See above!
Where do you go / what do you do to “disconnect”?
This summer I stayed in Rosendale, New York for all of August. Rosendale is amazing and so weird and cool (and cheap.) I would like to do that again for the whole summer next year if possible. Or longer, except at this point in my derelict career I have a fear of becoming like one of those Edith Wharton characters who go from “summering” upstate to living there year-round and it means they have lost their fortune and are disgraced. I have definitely lost my fortune but am not yet disgraced. I hope I can stay in NYC for another little while.

  4. 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.

  5. "To say that Warren Wolf’s Mack Avenue [Records] debut is auspicious would be an understatement," wrote the The Daily News. “No doubt,” they continued, “this is one of the best of the year in jazz.” Listen for yourself on Amazon. 

Warren Wolf plays The Checkout: Live From 92YTribeca on November 16. And today he’s our next Culture Klatsch subject. Spoiler alert: Where does he go get away? “Sit on Federal Hill in Downtown Baltimore overlooking the city skyline.” 

Where do you go for news when you start your day? 
Usually I’ll try to look at my local news stations. But the majority of the time you’ll see me watching CNN.

What are your favorite websites? 
Some of my favorite websites are CNN.com, ESPN.com, AllAboutJazz.com and YouTube.com 

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)? 
Facebook I use on a weekly basis. Twitter I use occasionally.

  6. 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With j.Bernard

Pop quiz: Aside from making great music, what do David Bowie, TV On The Radio and Massive Attack all have in common? Answer: the oh-so-awesome indie band Dragons of Zynth. Bowie’s a fan of theirs, and they’ve worked with TV On The Radio and Massive Attack. 

In this installment of Culture Klatsch, we hear from the band’s drummer j.Bernard, who let us know that his show on October 29 at 92YTribeca is particularly special to him – it marks his five-year anniversary with the band.  

Where do you go for news when you start your day? 
I start with the news, then find out what the world is thinking, then get to work. I generally start with MSNBC and the BBC. 

What are your favorite websites? 
Definitely The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast. After that its Rolling Stone, Newser, and Twitter.How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)? 
I tweet therefore I am. Facebook is a dying star in the universe of human connection. I read an amazing tweet the other day that said, “Twitter makes me fall in love with strangers that I may never meet. Facebook makes me hate the “friends” I already know.” That pretty much sums it up.

  7. Two years in the making, New York Night Train will unveil its latest and most ambitious party, the Land of 1000 Dances—both a new kind of party and a new kind of dance class, at 92YTribeca tomorrow evening. 

The brain child of DJ Jonathan Toubin, he’s been researching the dance crazes of the 1960s and trying to figure out a way to bring them to a contemporary club culture. And we’ve been researching his media and culture consumption, by way of the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A. Read the interview below. 

Where do you go for news when you start your day? 
I run out to Gimme Coffee and listen to neighborhood gossip. Then I go home where I have NPR and The New York Times on my email home page. What are your favorite websites?
I don’t really look at websites very frequently unless its for work or other pragmatic purposes so my list is quite boring: Facebook, Ebay, Weather.com, Priceline, Google, Wikipedia, etc…

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)? 
I try and make sure to tweet for every gig I have and make a Facebook page for each of my events so people know what’s happening. I also try and check my Facebook every day to respond to comments people make, detag pictures, accept friends, and generally participate. After doing what I need to do, I’m not on Facebook and Twitter very frequently except at airports – where it makes me feel close to people far away…

  8. Comedian Liam McEneaney gives us a peek inside the wonderland of his brain in the latest edition of Culture Klatsch. He’s hosting “Liam McEneaney’s Writings with Music,”  tomorrow, October 6 at 92YTribeca with special guests Myla Goldberg, Christopher Weingarten, and Kambri Crews. If he’s half as good at asking questions as he is at answering ours, tomorrow night will be seriously fun. We’ll assume (and hope) that Liam will discuss his penchant for pets in funny outfits at length with Mr. Weingarten, founder of Hipster Puppies, tomorrow.

Where do you go for news when you start your day? 
I used to go to morning news shows, it doesn’t matter which one because it’s the same show on every channel; because instead of news about the world, I like cooking tips and pets in funny outfits. When I want a view of the world from someone slightly more knowledgeable and informative than the TV news, I like to read Youtube comments.

What are your favorite websites? 
As far as I’m concerned, 92Y.org is the only website on the Internet.

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)? 
Are you asking how often I update @heyitsliam, my personal account? Or are you talking about @tyfcomedy, which is the Twitter handle for my weekly show Tell Your Friends! Or maybe you mean @tyfconcertfilm, which is the Twitter feed for the concert film based on that show?

In any case, I am usually too busy on Youtube, posting my hilarious “7-11 was an inside job” comments to bother with any of that.Read more on the 92Y Blog »

  9. Michael Schulman of The New Yorker is moderating Playwrights Horizons 2011/2012 Season Preview on September 12 at 92YTribeca. 

We sent him the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A and learned he likes to use YouTube for at-home “karaoke purposes,” believes The Huffington Post is becoming “more tabloid-y by the day,” and Gawker is his guilty pleasure. (Ours is animated gifs). Where do you go for news when you start your day? 
The New York Times and The Huffington Post (though it’s getting more tabloid-y by the day). On the train I listen to Rachel Maddow.

What are your favorite websites? 
Gawker – a guilty pleasure. I’ve been known to use YouTube for at-home karaoke purposes.

  10. Scott Kettner is founder of Nation Beat and Maracatu NY. He’ll take the stage with both groups at 92YTribeca on September 16 (DJ Greg Caz is also on the bill). 

If you were curious, Kettner loves going to the beach, enjoys going to the mountains and being close to nature. He’s also a big fan of the A-Team. We know this because we saw his video dating profile on a local cable channel access channel. Actually, that’s not true. We know this because Scott Kettner is the latest subject of the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A series.
