Sometimes people say shit and I just have to go and lay down in a dark room for an hour. @MPRnews It is really funny hearing how artists hate the song that makes them. I wonder if artists just hate being defined. Kills freedom. @CKlosterman Really enjoyed watching you inflame @nytimes readers with your article. The comments were so insanely geeky. Thanks.It must be hard to be in the position of a perpetual scold. Thinking of you dental hygienists.

Understand me: it's only because they are eating and I am waiting. I'm sure they are lovely people. But do not linger over your coffee here.Sometimes at Al's Breakfast I start to hate the other diners. The only downside to the best pancakes in the city. Side order of rage. @DanWilsonMusic I fully expected to see a bag of weed.

RIP Guy Clark https://t.co/Jk0AzBVjku @ContentPvdr Father's Day is coming Wyatt! @amyklobuchar curious what victories for civil rights the Roberts SCOTUS has scored. Can you think of one? Upholding aspects of ACA? @commers @larsleafblad go Jon! Tell it like it T - I - IS!

@mrdavehill I loved several things about that video but most particularly your patience and minimal eye-rolling. @andywho a great name worthy of your dewy sounds (also a great name!). I was thinking of naming myself Tallis Weed for my Nick Cave band.

That is all I'm saying. Musical Instrument Museum. Great!Wow. The Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix is simply amazing. No surprise that I should like such a thing but I am a snob and I was sure

Retweeted by John MunsonEven as a fan I don't know if I ever listened to every bit of. All The Critics Love U in New York. Thanks @TheCurrentIt's hard to know how to react to Prince's death. But I think dancing might be the most natural thing to do.

@larsleafblad @KFAN1003 nice to see some pride and sustained effort.Mudville explodes. @1500ESPNJudd how they could have come out not ready to play tonight boggles the mind. Maybe they are just snakebit. @RandBall 3 shots two goals. Gotta love it. @larsleafblad @KFAN1003 and then some.Whoa. Pathetic. @mnwild 26 seconds. C mon announcers. Tell it like it is. That was pathetic.

Retweeted by John MunsonBest wishes to @TylerSeguinNHL for a speedy recovery. Sad we won't be seeing you up at @mnwild @cinatyte Let's decide after tonight... I really hope that they show up. I long for them to be good. @cinatyte there are good reasons to feel fatalistic this year. Slogan? "Who Among You Shall Score A Goal?"Feeling all sorts of gratitude for so many getting behind our @PledgeMusic effort. Can't believe that we are 65% funded in less than a week
