92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Anthony Prozzi

image

Anthony Prozzi is Senior Interior Designer at Ford Motor Co. He’ll be participating in the Anatomy of Fashion panel at the inaugural State of Style Summit on February 7 at 92YTribeca. Kicking off New York Fashion Week, State of Style Summit – presented by 92Y, StyleCaster Media Group and by Ford - is packed with amazing panels; check out the full schedule here.

Prozzi was gracious enough to participate in the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A. What kind of radio does he listen to? “101.9, Detroit’s NPR all day, and late weekend nights I come across something broadcasting from the University of Windsor, Canada.” Read more below.

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
The New York Times app from my iphone; followed by a multitude of texts and emails from some very well read friends.

What are your favorite websites?
Obviously NYTimes.com and JWTintelligence.com for news and trends; ssense.com and ok-ni.com to shop; vmagazine.com and visionaireworld.com for inspiration and countless others. It’s extraordinary to think what the internet has done with access and availability of information.

imageHow much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
I’m not one to “ tweet .” I’m not the best facebooker either. I prefer my privacy, but when I took first place in a skating championship it felt good to post and hear congrats from my friends around the globe.

What Is Lowbrow And Brilliant? 92YTribeca Is!

image

Or more precisely, our screening of Coogan’s Bluff last Friday was brilliant/lowbrow, according to New York magazine’s Approval Matrix. “Clint Eastwood,” they wrote, “wasn’t always just a middling director whose movies require night-vision goggles.” See it large here.

Want to see what other brilliant screenings (lowbrow or otherwise) are coming up at 92YTribeca? The February film calendar is right here.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Daniel Knox

image

Chicago-based songwriter Daniel Knox will be at 92YTribeca on January 25 for the world premiere of his new long-form composition based on the photographs of fellow Chicagoan John Atwood. The pieces, titled John Atwood: Black & Whites, will be performed by piano, voice, bass, horns, strings, accordion and percussion, and set to projected images.

Fans of Daniel Knox and those who want to hear his music should sign up for his mailing list. He’ll send you a free mp3.

Read below to learn more about Knox, by way of his answers to the 92Y Culture Klatsch Questionnaire. For example, you’ll learn he’s skeptical of most news sources. “There’s no real source I trust,” he told us, “beyond the simple facts of who is dead, pregnant, or at war.” And he used to like hanging out in coffee shops when he wanted to “disconnect”. But now, “they’re more like weird singles clubs where you have to listen to some asshole’s indie-rock mixtape.”

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
Slashfilm.com, Gawker.com, Jezebel.com and Dlisted.com. I only read gossip and entertainment news. The rest of the world’s happenings usually show up clogging my Twitter and Facebook pages. There’s no real source I trust for any of that beyond the simple facts of who is dead, pregnant, or at war.

What are your favorite websites?
Vimeo, Twin Peaks Archive and Soundcloud. And I visit the University of California’s Wax Cylinder Archive a lot. I go there and type in random words and just see what comes up. It’s a massive archive and all the music on there is interesting for one reason or another. Mostly I love how excited everyone sounds to be hearing themselves at all.

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
More than I’d care to. Facebook is like a miserable human experiment that’s mostly made me feel worse about who my friends are. When you give people the chance to say shit to everyone they know at the same time you just get a lot of people posing and and acting like the person they want you to think they are.

As a performer it’s essential and really helpful because people always know what I’m up to, and it’s a good way to sort of test people’s interest in things and see how word spreads. But it’s also an easy way to find yourself giving a shit about things that aren’t important. Twitter is much more interesting because it’s instant and public and you aren’t given the space to ramble on. But I’m sure they’ll find a way to change that.

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Gary Belsky

image

We feel a deep sense of injustice when we learn that our favorite sports player has cheated or when a bad call goes against our team. But is sports the last field in which we have a clear sense of right and wrong?

On December 16 at 92YTribeca, a panel of the country’s best sports writers and reporters—including ESPN The Magazine editor-at-large (and former editor-in-chief) Gary Belsky, Jeremy Schaap (E:60 senior correspondent), Seth Wickersham (ESPN The Magazine senior writer) and Jane McManus (ESPN W writer)—and 92YTribeca’s Rabbi-in-Residence Dan Ain for a free-wheeling discussion about the big issues in sports. That’s on Friday.

If you want to learn more about Gary’s media and culture diet (he subscribes to 26 magazines!), see his answers to the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A, below.

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
The New York Times, in print. I’m careful about rushing into digital news sites right off the bat, since in general I think we get too much information too quickly. But if I do go digital its CNN.com.

What are your favorite websites?
WSJ.com, ESPN.com, Fandango, NYTimes.com, FunnyorDie.com, Time.com’s Moneyland, New York, Wikipedia, Economist.com.

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
On FB several times a day, briefly, on Twitter most days (I tweet and follow).

92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Michael Kupperman

image

Michael Kupperman is a cartoonist and Mark Twain autobiographer. He’s also the special guest at tomorrow’s installment of the Closely Watched Films series hosted by Elliott Kalan, on December 7. Elliott and Michael also worked together on the new Marvel comic book Shame Itself. The newest installment of Michael’s Tales Designed to Thrizzle comes out December 9.

When Michael is not illustrating comics, he’ll glance at the website English Russia, if time allows. And he get his news on Twitter, the “magic grapevine.” Read more about his culture and media habits below, in the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A.

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
Twitter. It’s a magic grapevine.

What are your favorite websites?
I have no time anymore, but an amazing one to look at is English Russia. Apparently Russia is a cross between The Road Warrior and Brazil. Endlessly fascinating.

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
A lot. I genuinely enjoy Twitter and the interactions I find there; with Facebook I enjoy the interactions but detest the site itself. Someone on my Twitter feed recently compared it to East German in the 1970s, which I thought was very apt; the spying, the control, the fact that you can never do what you want/need to. It’s maddening!
