Interview with The Culture of Me (New York blogger)
New York Blogger: The Culture of Me
His party photos make me miss New York desperately!
Name? Jeff Meltz
Age? 26 (ugh)
Job? Cultural hero/hack
How long have you lived in New York? All my life.
Favorite New York venue? Silent Barn, because the guys who do the shows are super-nice and the kids who show up always show up to have the best time ever.
How long have you been blogging? A little over 2 years.
How did you choose the name of your blog? “The culture of me” was actually the third title of the blog, but we like it the best. It’s a play on the ’80s theme of “me first” and how that pertains to everything these days. Plus, it lends itself nicely to a discourse of people’s preferences about anything.
First concert? We don’t remember exactly, but it was in a mall. That’s for sure.
Most recent concert? The Cool Kids
Most disappointing? The Stooges at United Palace Theater. Thirty years after their prime, the danger is gone. Plus, seats? Wtf? Even after everyone got on stage with them at the end of the show, it still was less than impressive.
Dream line-up? Death from Above 1979 opens, followed by Pretty Girls Make Graves, followed by At the Drive-In(!), all headlined by Lou Reed, Sterling Morrisson, Mo Tucker and John Cale playing pretty much anything together.
