50 Words or Less(-ish) Fridays: Adriana Nova

This is just what the name implies: Each week, I ask someone interesting a question and request that she/he respond in 50 words or less.

Or somewhere in the ballpark of 50 words. That’s why there’s an “-ish.” I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but this site isn’t exactly a bastion of rigidity.

Adriana NovaThis week, I’m excited to welcome in Adriana Nova, associate director of social media at New York magazine.

We don’t mess around here at tedfoxisawesome.com.

Previously, Adriana founded and led ideeli.com’s social media practice, managed fellowship services at The New York Public Library’s Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers, and worked in editorial and marketing at Random House. She is also a writer, and has contributed to New York, FOLIO:, and ESSENCE.com. You can find her on Twitter as @adriananova_.

It was on Twitter that Adriana and I began discussing television, so I wanted to know:

What is the most underrated TV comedy of all-time?

The Twilight Zone. If you can’t laugh at the incongruously merry sway of that jack-in-the-box spring at the end of “It’s a Good Life,” you’ve done a very bad thing.

This is how you know someone is cool enough to work at New York magazine: She busts out a reference to a 50+-year-old episode of classic television. Asked this same question, I probably would have panicked, blurted out something like Perfect Strangers, and been ridiculed both mercilessly and justifiably.

I mean more than usual.

Huge thanks to Adriana for stopping by this week and for spelling “Adriana” the right way, with one “n,” like my mom.
