Major Matt asks Phoebe Kreutz 5 questions (#17)


1. How did we originally meet?
We met because Jenn Lindsay suggested I get you to produce my first album. Which you did. In two days, I think. But I was pretty shy and I didn't feel bonded until the following summer when I hung out on your roof during the blackout.

2. 3 things that make you happy?
1. Dance parties
2. Cooking a big, stupid meal with side-dishes and everything on a weeknight
3. Being off on an adventure when noone knows exactly where you are

3 things that make you sad?
1. The man (and specifically, how powerless I feel to keep him from oppressing everyone and how dumb I feel for feeling powerless.)
2. Change- the way NY and my neighborhood are changing; the way people keep growing up without asking me.
3. Phil Collins's "Against All Odds"- but in a good way.

What is your favorite color?
I'm a big fan of pink. Also blue. I guess I'm like a baby of indeterminate gender that way.

5. 3 people who inspire you?
If you mean people who make me work when all my natural inspiration is gone, I would give credit to Susan Hwang for her Bushwick Book Club and Gary Adler, who makes me write songs about Pilgrims and Indians for our musical. But I get mad inspired just going to the shows of all my talented friends. They make me want to do more, write more, keep doing this ridiculous stuff.
