92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Leslie Goshko

imageLeslie Goshko is an award-winning storyteller who’s won our hearts in the latest edition of Culture Klatsch (that’s her in the photo at left with Ira Glass, “the man, the myth, the legend.").

When she’s not busy resting Diet Cokes on her (useful!) copy of Infinite Jest, watching “Dance Moms”, or performing with the improvised storytelling rock band The BTK Band, Leslie serves as host of her monthly storytelling show Sideshow Goshko. Leslie brings her Sideshow to 92YTribeca tomorrow night with A+ storytellers in tow, including former “Blue’s Clues” host Steve Burns, comedian Tom Shillue, and Moth GrandSlam Champion Ed Gavagan. 

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
Well, since I’m sure Facebook and my college roommate’s blog don’t count, I’d say the radio. I still listen to an actual radio. It’s in my kitchen. My dad gave it to me. Hi, Dad!

What are your favorite websites?
I have a feeling this answer is just the first in a series of “maybe I shouldn’t reveal that” moments but…I daily check wwtdd.com. And in case you’re wondering what that stands for, it’s “What Would Tyler Durden Do.” Yes, Tyler Durden from “Fight Club.” Apparently I’m a college-aged frat boy who wants you to know that the first rule about Fight Club is...well, I don’t remember. But the second rule is fighting!

Actually it’s a pop culture site.

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
They are intravenously inserted into my body (shameless twitter plug @ohmygoshko).

What book are you currently reading (or the last one you read)? Print or digital?
Books? What are these “books” you speak of? Oh, you mean coasters! Infinite Jest has saved my table from many a diet coke ring. I’d like to see your Kindle do that!

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Corey Dargel

image

Texas-born, Brooklyn-based composer, singer and songwriter Corey Dargel is “one of the more original and consistently provocative artists pushing at the margins of modern classical music and adventurous pop” according to The New York Times. They’re not the only ones singing (no pun intended) his praises. Corey’s performing a newly expanded version of his song cycle Hold Yourself Together at 92YTribeca on October 20 as part of the SONiC : Sounds of a New Century festival, which highlights new works by composers 40-years-old and younger.   

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
I try not to start my day with news, but Slate is my site for news.

What are your favorite websites?
Smitten Kitchen is great for recipes. Lurid Digs (totally not safe for work), Awkward Family Photos and Cake Wrecks never fail to amuse me.

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
I use both Twitter and Facebook, but the amount of time depends on how extensively I need to distort the reflection of my authentic self.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Nisha Asnani

image

On October 15, 92YTribeca and Nuyorican Poets Cafe will present Nisha Asnani, a masterful songstress who infuses jazz and funk melodies with the vocal prowess of a bygone era.

We sent her the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A to learn more about her media and culture diet. But how does she disconnect? “Yoga. I practice a lot of yoga; it’s my sanity. I turn my phone off and for a couple of hours force myself to remember that I exist outside all of my obligations and connections.”

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
I watch a re-run of the “The Daily Show with John Stewart” and “Colbert Report.” Just to keep a sense of humor about it all.

What are your favorite websites?
TED talks! I love them, I will often listen to them at work. Hulu – I’m a junkie for old episodes of “Arrested Development” and “The Office.” I wish I could say I was cool enough to be up on the blog scene, but the truth is, the most of what I know comes from my offsite experiences. I live in the East Village of New York, and if there’s any place in the world that can keep you informed, entertained and curious, this is it.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Steven Bernstein

image

New York City’s favorite “little big band,” Steven Bernstein’s Millennial Territory Orchestra, cracks open the monumental songbook of Sly & The Family Stone on its new studio album, MTO Plays Sly. You can sample tracks on Amazon.

They’ll perform songs from their new album at 92YTribeca on October 14. Today, Steven Bernstein has answered the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A.

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
At the start (with my coffee) I go to my local paper, Rockland Journal News.

What are your favorite websites?
After the Journal News, I go to The Huffington Post, Raw Story, TPM, Politico, Americablog, Andrew Sullivan (I used to go to Perez Hilton, but that got boring once Brittany sobered up).

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
Facebook addict, no Twitter. My (almost) 17 year old daughter says Facebook is evil. She’s on it too much as well.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Kevin Janus

image

This Monday was Thanksgiving in Canada, and we spent the day being thankful for Canadian comedian Kevin Janus. Kevin’s taking a break from trolling Toronto Blue Jays stats blogs long enough to host The Comedy Igloo this Thursday at 92YTribeca (Oct 13), with special guests Leo Allen and Matt McCarthy. We’re really looking forward to hearing more about Celine Dion and the “Friday Night Lights” season 2 murder plotline.

Super Kevin Janus fans (and stalkers), can get a bigger fix below, with the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Kevin Janus. That’s where you’ll learn you won’t find him on Facebook. “I’m a conscientious objector to Facebook,” he told us.

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
To keep up with serious Canadian news, like the guy who broke into Celine Dion’s house and took a bath, I follow CTV News on Twitter and read The Toronto Star online.  For more trivial news, I read the print edition of The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times online. 

What are your favorite websites?
Honestly, I don’t really go directly to websites anymore.  I follow every one of my favorite websites on Twitter. All 846 of them. One of the few websites I do still visit directly is called Batter’s Box.  It’s a nerdy, stats-heavy Toronto Blue Jays baseball blog. Because yes. Canadians do love baseball. 

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
I use Twitter all the time.  But I refuse to have a Facebook account.  I’m a conscientious objector to Facebook. I’m sorry, what? No. That’s perfectly consistent.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Liam McEneaney

image

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.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Freedy Johnston

image

Freedy Johnston, the Los Angeles Times wrote, is “midwestern and spectacularly unflashy,” who “won critics’ hearts and some fame in the early 1990s with intensely crafted songs about adulthood’s curveballs: rebound romances, gambling losses, the drudgery of doing time for crimes of the heart.”

Freedy is playing 92YTribeca on September 30.

Today, he is the subject of the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A, where we discovered he is an easy interview, subscribes to Milwaukee Home and Fine Living and High Times, and has a life size plaster buffalo in his home.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Bob Gruen

image

You know that great picture of John Lennon? Which one? Doesn’t really matter – any picture of John Lennon that’s worth seeing was probably taken by photographer Bob Gruen. The legendary rock photographer has taken some of the most iconic pictures of musicians and bands such as Blondie, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Tina Turner, Elton John and Green Day. See a few of his pictures here and here.

Bob will be at 92YTribeca on Monday, September 26 talking about his career and new book, Rock Seen, with musician, writer, record producer and member of Patti Smith’s band Lenny Kaye.

What does his media and culture diet look like? He goes to great lengths to get The New York Times when traveling, or at least an International Herald Tribune, has a Twitter account but hasn’t used it yet, and his favorite piece of art in his home is “a graffiti piece I took off the street in 1981 by Futura 2000

High Line: The Inside Story of NYC’s Park in the Sky

image
Amazing photo of the High Line via Stuck in Customs/Flickr

SmartPlanet.com:

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.

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.

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.
