It's not nice to prance around like a peacock and strut and jive when a jackass kicks your political opponent in the face. But forgive me...MN has a $1.6 billion dollar surplus. Many MN lakes & rivers aren't swimmable because of pollution. #mnleg budget c… https://t.co/Zw67yDjGoC

@cariness @TheCedar @TwilightHours dance with my dad.If my 90 year old dad can make it out to @TheCedar Saturday to see @TwilightHours you sure as hell can. #Noexcuses @MattWilsonMusic and I try to explain ourselves to @TheCedar It proves fruitless... yet mildly entertaining. https://t.co/gquUFV87y2

I am so excited that @TwilightHours have invited @CAIRMN to @TheCedar for our show 3/25. Come learn more about their mission and rock w/ us @MattWilsonMusic @TwilightHours @TheCedar Matt I think we should Facebook Live the whole show. For people on the internet. @SouhanStrib did you know I've become acquainted with Caleigh? Very sweet girl. Obv raised right. @MattWilsonMusic @TwilightHours @TheCedar sorry about that. Band will be fully clothed for the most part, as far as we know at this time... @MattWilsonMusic @TwilightHours @TheCedar This is not fake news. It is MUST SEE MUSIC ACTION. Topless/Bottomless. @SouhanStrib Chicago game was anything but boring. Did not see tonight but Sunday was amazing hockey--just need to bury chances.

@paulkrugman no one wants to be reminded of how they were scammed. Try a different tack. I love you but this is a losing strategy. @MPRnews @newscut some Iowans. I have spent a lot of time in Iowa and generalizing about them is inadvisable. Pretty eclectic lot. @TheCedar we have to wrench @MattWilsonMusic away from his work bench and onto his megaphone. Only Matt can incite the fans. @MattWilsonMusic @TwilightHours @TheCedar we HAVE to get our number up!! The fans are counting on us!!! @MattWilsonMusic is so dedicated to his art that he cannot be bothered to tell anyone his band @TwilightHours is performing @TheCedar 3/25 @dbrauer @RepJasonLewis single term. @NickKristof please figure out what Trump did so he can be arrested and this madness can stop...How did Molly Hatchet and Bob Seger become the wallpaper of our lives? By what weird quirk of fate? #timelessclassics ? @coreyschreppel what wouldn't I do for that suit? I think @PFTompkins may have one very like it.

I don't quite get why anyone is acting shocked about Pruitt being completely in the pockets of Kochs etc. and espousing denier rhetoric.

@jmessersmith what are you selling!? @Jen_Boyles and yet hard to imagine anyone doing better than Bruno did. @Jen_Boyles when i recorded at Paisley splitting days with Prince he looked better at 9:00 AM after recording all night by himself @Jen_Boyles Bruno pointed up (again) how perfectly put together Prince ALWAYS WAS.Chance is real. @jmessersmith prince would never wear such ill fitting trousers.Prince tribute... sadly the proof that he is gone gone gone. Crying again.
