My dad is a lifelong scientist, an endlessly curious man and a republican. There was a time when these were not mutually exclusive.

@mayorcoleman you = an awesome MN Music Champion. Thank you 4 The Palace Theater etc. But belt must be passed. Don't "forget it" @mnmusiccoLooking at O'Reilly's horrifying visage and imagining it trying to steal an unwelcome kiss. Psychological Trauma ensues. @ACNewman @NekoCase @FirstAvenue @johnmoe @hoganhere Are they preparing you special glasses of Pabst? @ACNewman I would direct you to my flight of obsequiousness of yesterday regarding "We've Been Here Before" if it w… https://t.co/nWsQnjXJtK @mg_lasquadra Ageist!! (-;In a Championship Belt Ceremony worthy of the greats, with me as Bernie Karbo @mnmusicco presents our new Mn Music Champ at @summitbeer @NekoCase @ACNewman @FirstAvenue @johnmoe @hoganhere Your voice is a beacon. Something to aspire too. @johnmoe Though perhaps in some weird Fake News Universe Sputnik is the King Of The Gods? @johnmoe Too true. Apollo? Can you say "trying too hard?" Also unfun.Can we all agree that the only appropriate replacement for O'Reilly would be a woman?Let's just admit that "cosmonaut" is way more badass than "astronaut." The Russians won that one. Right?For Fox News, Life After Bill O’Reilly Will Feature Tucker Carlson: The parade of douchebags continues!! Yay!!! https://t.co/4rhljA6jH3

My heart is breaking for @mnwild after such a great year thoIf you would would have told me that both @mnwild and @NHLBlackhawks would be on the verge of elimination before Playoffs started...

@jmessersmith I agree completely. The storyline of love loss was woven into all elements. And Paul Guthrie's visuals were outstanding.So very psyched for whatever @dessadarling and @andywho have concocted for us. Will it be as yummy as Existential Crunch?

The fact that process is spelled "proscess" in the locker room of Denver tells you much about hockey. But damn I love it. #NCAAChampionship

It's that West Coast snare drum... sounds like it was recorded in an anechoic chamber. @DanWilsonMusic Amen. Socials are no place to go for the food that satisfies. Actual people better perhaps.I can't turn Morning Phase up loud enough for it to penetrate my soul, dammit.Someone is trying to make the world better. We are ruining everything.

Talking about your supposed convictions and yet voting contrary to them is weak tea, babies.To all the pious republican senators moaning abt traditions yet voting to blow em up, go to hell.I ask you @realDonaldTrump what is the point of blaming Obama over the Syrian attack? How is it conceivably relevant? And what will YOU DO? @JerryZgoda That was a dirty play by McGee. No doubt.

So much for a savior goalie. Two goals in ten seconds. Oof @ACNewman Better sleepy eyes than crazy eyes I guessWelp, time to rake those leaves I guess @WSJ Duh? Come on, man! Anyone who thinks otherwise is full of it. Customs of the Senate are in the dustbin of history. Democracy next. @NHL I hope never to hear the fucking Chicago goal song EVER AGAIN. CC @mnwild
