So many of the undead in the crowd at Lakers game tonight. Esp court side. @AliLozoff xc skis like giant, awkward, not very slippery wooden skates. Dubious. DUBIOUS. @AliLozoff you don't have to wax em either. Double bonus.Put on the xc skis because nice fluffy snow finally and discovered I remain pretty awful at it. @RandBall I can name that band. @minnesotaberg sure. I enjoy hockey much and music even more. @RandBall if you don't have a band name yet I can help. @RandBall what is your band called?And that challenge just smacks of desperation. Dubnyk not sharp. Yeo not sharp. Wild not sharp. #mnwild

Didn't Santorum and Huckabee make similar triumphant speeches after Iowa in past years? Hope that is the last of the smug Cruz we see.... @johnmckone it's sad. @Nutmeghers this is the question I never dared ask! Terrified of what might happen now. @ACNewman guffaw.

It is not that I don't like the music that you are playing. It's just that it is erasing my brain.I'm fifteen followers short of 4000... and have been for three years. @davidtlewis what does one bring special to FInland? I'm excited for your trip...https://t.co/9fKf8NiJpZ https://t.co/iXsMxSTCLm

@memphisevans @wilw and I wondered, "why so sad?" Then remembered: mom died shortly before that session. Hard time to think about the nest. @memphisevans @wilw gor reasons unrelated to this thread listened to the talking heads and our @newstandards versions back to back today @rick_rch865 @1500ESPNJudd I wonder... They are not cup contenders yet, but I think they are better than they've been showing lately. @JDaus @1500ESPNJudd @hockeywildernes they just are having a helluva time burying chances. Should not have been close. @Rotflsocks @wildxtra got me! Oof!! @jlom99 @1500ESPNJudd I don't know about that. But performance in OT is similarly inexplicable. Seems "system" doesn't apply then. L @1500ESPNJudd So bitter after a dominant performance.Wish the announcers could tell this like it is: Dubnyk gives up an unforgivably stupid goal and costs team the W. That's the truth.Duby Duby Don't. #mnwild

@AliLozoff @brettish got the emergency call from Penny. Home leaking. Boom went all fun. Hope it was great... now I owe cake. @AliLozoff @TheCurrent see that's the thing... No. No other way to say it. @AliLozoff @TheCurrent For your amusement and enlightenment. @AliLozoff @TheCurrent Did I say "cake?" I meant "cocaine" Damn spell check.Setting up the room to record is so exciting! Anticipation accompanies every recording session... and I hope it always feels that way!!

@larsleafblad thanks man... Been spending many minutes with my favorite Bowie over the last days. But trying to keep in mind: MAKE THINGS!! @DeRushaJ @westbendkitchen I am a stove top guy. Air popper too dry. Let your pals know microwave popcorn is CARCINOGENIC. cause it is. @mollypriesmeyer John Tesh? And a blonde Lonnie Anderson looking? @coreyschreppel @TheCurrent @rationalfunk saw the trio at The Vanguard By myself. So memorable. Too short.Great hearing Paul Motian Trio on @TheCurrent with @rationalfunk Nice to have bringing jazz to airwaves Dave!

@susanbordson @keripickett Keri is an friend. Wasn't aware of this. Thanks! @BrianOake @AliLozoff @JillRiley @ScottRossol @TheCurrent @twinkiejiggles your universe. Not mine. @AliLozoff @BrianOake @JillRiley @ScottRossol @TheCurrent @twinkiejiggles I suspect Sean will be happy to sleep and play music again. @BrianOake @JillRiley @ScottRossol @TheCurrent @twinkiejiggles Sean and I are starting our own station which we're calling "Mostly Bass!" @thedailybeast ...opportunistically latching it on to Bowie's death and making him the poster child for it is also wrong IMO @thedailybeast if I may say so this seems in very poor taste when the man is not even cold yet. I'm sure that statutory rape is wrong but... @funkomatic just another great reminder of why we love MN!It's #Gophers vs. Mavericks in game two of this weekend's series at 2pm. See you there. https://t.co/NRoM3P761Q https://t.co/WyzlMvwIyb
Retweeted by John MunsonFeels like a great day to play Mario Kart with my 8yr old. @dessadarling fish is a fertility sign. Means it's a great time to write/create. #nocharge @larsleafblad I just like to see a man who can drive a car 132000 miles plus. In any tempsWorking with my good old pal Christopher Lynch on @Kickstarter https://t.co/c5uNCPogBQ Give it a listen. Going to be lovely. @gregseitz I just want to have a recourse for my outrage and @MCEA1974 feels like the best place to go at this point.I encourage those who care about a clean environment up north (and elsewhere in MN) to do the same.Environmental advocates are our best bet. So. From now on Everytime I feel like yelling about Polymet, I'm sending money to @MCEA1974Contrary to my hopes and tweets @GovMarkDayton is not likely going to be able to stop Polymet from mining up north. So... Sorry about thatAlright. My lawyer friend made me aware of some things so I feel like I need to set the record straight. (Cont.)

@snipy @MPRnews @GovMarkDayton @aaronklemz thankfully MPR does not have jurisdiction over our water... YET! @MPRnews strikes me as doing what is most politically expedient while talking a good game. @MPRnews I don't understand how you can express concern for water and allow Polymet to go forward jeopardizing our water @GovMarkDayton

Retweeted by John MunsonWhen did "the response" become part of The State of The Union? Clinton years seems right. Anyone know? Feels like a republican invention. @andywho play it again sports. You might have to try skating a few times. Uses unfamiliar muscles but the rewards are great.Hey when it's cold go for a skate at your local rink. You will be amazed at how not cold you are and invigorated you feel.

Some TC musicians share their thoughts about about Bowie's influence on their lives and music. https://t.co/8QEFfxhqyaYes sirI think the lesson I'm taking is: Strive on! Believe that art can change the world! @lnofzinger @KerriMPR Because of who he is. Which I would put in the, "that's their problem" matrix.I don't think that many pop star's deaths could bring me to tears. As I review the impact... Monumental. Completely wrenching @jadeisthename life on marsHow inspiring David Bowie remains. Creating until the last. Godspeed. You changed my life.And the agony of defeat https://t.co/CK5L2iiKjM (NewsCut blog post.)

Hearing Bowie's fragile 68 year old voice in the naturalistic setting of Black Star is revelatory. So far so good.

are most people high half the time? or half the people high most of the time?January 4th seems like a terribly arbitrary day to cease with eating rich buttery breads and pale sausages. So carry on. @GopherMBB @amfam Do I have to go to Iowa? @entertain_mn Garrison pining for the old days?! That is his entire CAREER! @larsleafblad @mlahammer @bhenehan @CathyWurzer @tptAlmanac I'm surprisingly moderate for a communist. (-;

Nice to see @TheQuincyLewis at The Barn today. Loved watching you play Quincy @GettingGophery so many bad ones out there today.Officiating at Gopher Game predictably sucks. Game has gloomy feeling of inevitability about even though close. Maybe it's just me.
