Uproxx 20: Andrew W.K. | Uproxx
Andrew W.K. is a musician, motivational speaker, advice columnist and professional partier probably best known for, well, partying. Currently, Andrew is writing a book about partying and is the host of Meet Me at the Reck from Makers Studios, which they describe as a “Sesame Street for the digital generation.” The show premieres this Saturday, October 4th on Maker.tv. From the show’s press release…
A six-part family series, “Meet Me at The Reck” follows Andrew and his band of kids—better known as “reckers,” as they explore what it means to celebrate the importance of using your imagination. With the help of special guests including Jack Black (SCHOOL OF ROCK), Zach Woods (“Silicon Valley,” “The Office”), digital superstar Joseph Garrett aka Stampylonghead, YouTube artist Mary Gutfleisch aka Mary Doodles, comedian Bobby Lee, pro-skateboarder Eric Koston, guitar legend Matt Sweeney and NASA scientist Michael Meacham (“NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory”), “Meet Me at The Reck” is an exploration of childhood, and a guide to being a kid in the world of possibilities.
Andrew was nice enough to take a few minutes out of his busy schedule recently to answer a few questions from us.
1. You walk into a bar. What do your order from the bartender?
Buffalo wings, a bacon cheese burger, and a chicken pot pie. I haven’t eaten in 12 hours!
2. Who’s your favorite person to follow on Twitter?
I can’t pick favorites – there are too many people I love following, and I follow a lot. The computer is a way to party with people non-stop, all around the world, in real time. I love it so much and get so much pleasure out of it.
3. What’s currently waiting for you on your DVR/TiVO?
I wish I had a DVR! That’s a great idea. Maybe I will get one some day and then I would just record everything at once!
4. It’s your last meal — what are you going out with?
The entire array of foods on offer at Golden Corral! I want an all I can eat, endless buffet for my last meal!
5. What websites do you visit on a regular basis?
I search for the word “party” on AOL, Google, WebCrawler, and YouTube, several times a day.
