Retweeted by John Munson @christi10118704 ask @WhoIsRupert @GettingGophery White Winter Hymnal. Fleet Foxes.So many mixed messages. Picture of some sniffable, mag called Vice, but "don't do drugs" while glamorizing @jmessersmith it's good to treasure joy!Nothing feels better than coming out after singing Snow Days early in the season and seeing snow tumbling from the sky. Magic.Our victorious Gopher Women will be ranked #1 after this weekend

Penny Larsen Jewelry made some amazing charms for this event! I know cause that's my wife!
So in a season of thankfulness these things are on my mind. Thanks for listening.Without the community of musicians here in MN and the audience which supports them, my life would have little meaning.It has been a tremendous gift to help preside over a joyful celebration of season and community. And I am esp mindful of the community todayWith @newstandards holiday shows launching for the tenth year tomorrow I'm feeling immense gratitude to all the artists who have come along. @larsleafblad @newstandards @Bandcamp such a great song. #givelove
@HarMarSuperstar type of food is the critical piece of information missing. Low heat in oven or moderate heat with a little water stovetop

Retweeted by John MunsonCan only imagine that Trump supporters feel betrayed with the news that he will not jail Hillary is open to Climate etc Up next, no wall Ha!
Listening To @TheFlatFiveCHI again today... utterly charming and awesome in every way. See em with @TwilightHours at @TurfClubMN 12/9Great article on Gopher BBAll woes by @brittrobson in @citypages Such a wonderful sportswriter.
@Nylons huge challenge for me. I have asked for an explanation in light of my multi-racial family and how offensive Trump is on that level @jonathancoulton @GOP @Evan_McMullin what could you possibly expect? They are drooling and cannot be interrupted by things like conscience @BuffaloBeauts @meganebozek MN needs a women's pro team. Why don't you start it Megan?! @andrewzimmern @Eater a must visit every time I'm in New York. Western Chinese Cuisine is THE BEST!And great hearing Daniel Corrigan telling his stories. Get his book Heyday if you love great photography and rock music. @thelocalshowBaby Heartbeat was the first local tune I heard and loved driving along Snelling on KQs local show. That was awhile ago... @thelocalshow @JosephScrimshaw time saver! Thank you!Great bass playing on @heiruspecs tune on @TheCurrent just now. Nice work @twinkiejiggles
@trash24713 ...but not without a few missteps. @trash24713 I think that it's undeniable that some of the high points of 20th C music were mounted by these Liverpudlians... @adamfelber well put. I will remember that appellation. @markmovies a good story. @GettingGophery revolution #9 anyone? @PPoyner one can venture that opinion about a lot of the later stuff I think. As the band atomized it got worse. Still much to love though @trash24713 not hard to find dross in that recording. @1song7questions I knew it was someone's favorite. I love the vocal. Hate the song. Though there are others I like less in the world.Triviality: worst Beatles song? There are a number of late career dingers but I nominate "Mr Moonlight" from Beatles For Sale. Anyone?
@larsleafblad @thefriends @stpaullibrary @jetpack Beth is the bomb to use an antiquated term. @JDVance1 @mattyglesias my own hope is that the Democrats can discover some stones and give as good as they got. #skeptical @larsleafblad check out Hillbilly Elegy. Great for empathy.
@AmeliaRayno oh man. I just faced this down with one wide eyed 9 year old and one knowing 13 year old. Tough tough tough.Time for some anti-anxiety doobies. See you on the flip flop.I hope you all realize what you just got us into... this isn't a football game now.The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for America, David Remnick writes.…
Retweeted by John MunsonComey must be indicted. @abryant34 welp... g'night! @abryant34 she has a record of significant public service to start including being a senator and Secretary of State. Trump = Nada. Playboy.. @abryant34 thanks man. Different strokes etc... thank you for your service. @abryant34 Trump is such s horrible example to all children. He is truly deplorable. Nothing to aspire to and no sort of commander @abryant34 well we have a basic disagreement there. I do not subscribe to that particular narrative.Trump certainly no better in that regard @LemieuxLGM @kathlanpher staying alive!! @abryant34 not terribly optimistic though! @abryant34 who is supposed to do the job of politics if not politicians? I wish Trump wisdom and a capacity for compromise.That is politics @abryant34 I really wonder if people will get what they imagine from him. I think he is clueless about policy. America cannot be what it was @abryant34 who did your party nominate? Characterize him for me.We were the last place to turn... a refuge... and now what? Where can people run to with a xenophobe misogynist president?Yay! Our Somali citizens asserting themselves @aholmaas @johnmoe oh of course he was joking... what a dork I am. @pboblett @Lutsen_Tofte @LutsenMountains yep!Folks, don't forget to stay in line!
