Culture Klatsch: 92Y Q&A With Ann And Fiona


We’re going to go ahead and add Ann Design and Fiona Walsh to the list of comedy duos that have stood the test of time. They are bringing their new show “Listen to this… with Ann and Fiona” to 92YTribeca, tomorrow, August 4. Joining them will be a bunch of others, including Comedy Central headliner Christian Finnegan.

And today, they are the latest subjects of the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A, where we learned they prefer to get their news from Dunkin’ Donuts, a raunchy gossip site, and Hoda and Kathie Lee. Check it out:

Where do you go for news when you start your day? 

Fiona Walsh: First place I go is the hilarious site of my friend Michael K at It’s as worthy as any news site on the internet and it always, always guarantees me a smile!! 

Ann Design: When I start my day, I like to get my news from random sources. Hoda and Kathie Lee are one source, nothing beats getting hard news from two women drunk on wine. I also listen to the talk of the day while on line at Dunkin’ Donuts. Boy, there sure are a lot of smart people at DD early in the morning.

Yoga Does The Body Good


Players on Cornell’s round of 16 team get ready to play overseas by working out and taking yoga at 92nd Street Y May Center. From The New York Times:

The five friends then made their way onto the elevator and to a court — not a basketball court, but the “cardio court” for yoga. There, the five former Cornell standouts — Foote, Ryan Wittman, Louis Dale, Jon Jaques and Aaron Osgood — settled on undersize mats in the front row of the dimly lighted class, staggering their positions to avoid hitting one another with their arms during the stretches. For the next 1 hour 25 minutes, the five labored through an intermediate yoga class of 13 women and 2 other men as the instructor rattled off instructions with the faint sound of music in the background.

“It’s a little difficult when you’re 7 feet tall versus 5-10 like Louis,” said Foote, who needed special attention from the instructor throughout the session. “We used to do it as a team a little at Cornell, but never quite like that.”

Wittman, the 2010 Ivy League player of the year, said: “We probably should be in a beginner’s class, but we decided to give it a try.” He added: “I’ve noticed a big difference since I began doing it this summer. It helps with flexibility, quickness and durability.”

Read the full article on here. And then sign up for your own yoga class at 92Y May Center. As Susan Wallis Field commented on the story on the 92Y Facebook page, there is no place like 92Y “for the best instruction and lectures!”
