“I could apply and apply for jobs and hear nothing back, but I found I could get informational interviews with just about anyone,” she says.
Thus was born “Employee of the Month,” a “talk show about dream jobs,” where Lazarus, who’s also a comedian and performer, interviews people with enviable careers.
Catie is still looking for a job. “I really just want a writing job,” she told the New York Post. “And I can also do voice-overs.”
Employee of the Month happens August 18 at 92YTribeca and features critically acclaimed performance artist Aurelia Thierrée, documentary filmmaker Julia Bacha and Emmy Award-winner Kevin Clash, best known as the man behind the beloved Sesame Street character Elmo. Plus, music from singer Noam Weinstein. Tickets are available here.
An ultra-funky song cabinet is just one of several pieces of high tech artwork on display at 92YTribeca’s second annual GeekDown, and none of it’s about to pop up in Pottery Barn or Crate & Barrel.
“The kind of vision of GeekDown is thinking about new technology specific to computers and digital technology and how does that really meet and combine with creative self-expression. There are sound installations, there’s video art, lots of different things happening in this space,” says Aaron Miller of 92YTribeca.
Among the sound installations is “Tape Translation,” which allows users to manipulate the playback of those old analog cassette tapes, thereby reminding people as to how the endangered species of media works.
