Fuck me, but more to the point, fuck iOS8: now I get to Restore iPhone.@tanehisicoates Find it bizarre that he doesn't use the word "brain" except in quoting you. Pretty key part of the question, even for Xtian.

@dbrauer Got general/political angle from reports, but w/ your specifics and acronyms, was drifting. Remembered your shopping tweets.@dbrauer Would love to see an explainer by you on Pref1/MNsure; clear you understand better than most, but I'm not following your tweets.So glad a professional football organization is here to judge whether something is child abuse or not. #offseasonrevenuestream@kumailn real answer: banana peels have an intense laxative effect.
More than once I've found audio from an episode of Parks & Rec @ 97.9 fm near the Uptown Walgreens. Weird.@JoshDCarson the one at Shops at Lyndale looked open on Saturday.@johnmoe Yes! Board game nerds *love* auction mechanics.@johnmoe As much as I dislike Monopoly, should note it's only as long as it is because everyone plays it wrong. #freeparkingcashgrab@tvoti - Please explain the tenets of Homeland Trutherism.@dbrauer @StribRoper "new shell"? That's unfinished.Watched "Blow Out." Boy did that movie throw away a serious bid for greatness in the last 20 minutes.

Jack ass trucker playing anti-zipper merge vigilante on Shepard Road this evening. What a tool.@LineLearner When I used to understudy @josheakright and others, I'd record the show and dump the audio to my iPod. Your app's a great idea.@josheakright @LineLearner - Neat! I wonder if it lets you record a whole rehearsal and then chop it up.@ncroal #cahiersducinemagate

Retweeted by Fred Beukema@soniasaraiya (I'm not intentionally pitching the show to you, you just keep talking about stuff they just talked about & it's great) (2/2)@soniasaraiya - @paulscheern apparently wrote a college thesis on it (see recent @XFilesFiles episode for his explanation) (1/2)
Man, wait until the #gamergate dudes find out Mary Lucia is Paul Westerberg's sister. #twopeoplewillgetthisBuried in today's Apple news is the discontinuation of the iPod Classic, which has this music packrat VERY VERY NERVOUS.@KenJennings @woot MN is very livable and so non-seismic that the earthquake load chapter is stricken from our building code by law.Poop plant.

@RobinKimball @LarsenOnFilm @filmspotting Papillon.@ncroal Where's Jack Thompson when you need him?
@MyLittleBloggie I nominate the popcorn shop and The Lobby Shoppe II (but not I).@bengarvin @dbrauer - I've sat in those chairs half a dozen times waiting for a friend for lunch. No idea I was "trespassing" each time.@R_Sohn @bravenewgrrrl - You don't understand. We parents have NOTHING ELSE GOING ON. The kid is the only game in town.There is only one way to listen to Gustav Holst's First Suite, and that is LOUDLY AS LOUDLY AS POSSIBLE LOUDER LOUDER

Retweeted by Fred Beukema@MyLittleBloggie for putting the onus of (specifically) rape prevention on victims. Maddening. (2/2)@MyLittleBloggie Should add part of my reaction is that "I lock my doors" is lately infuriating for how often it's used as argument (1/2)@MyLittleBloggie I do, too, but that's not the analogy. This is paying someone (Floyd Home Security?) and them not doing their job.@MyLittleBloggie Apple's failure, and violation by the hackers. Victims had reasonable expectations: http://t.co/6tGvj5Lkt0@ncroal Here's a question. How is it so many people "Wrote the article?" Are the theorists lumping many discrete articles into one?This sign is supposed to show you which things are forbidden. But it actually creates the coolest dog ever. http://t.co/kCL9RYnDWx

@johnmoe Wendell appears to be a midpoint between you and Nic Cage.@drewgmackie Doing so in late May?@thegynomite it’s supposed to make him look badass or mysterious or something, but just makes him look like a MRA. Anti-marketing.
Never heard of The Dunning school until this week. Thanks .@tanehisicoates for showing me an academic villain!Can't wait to read Marc Thiessen's op-ed arguing that ISIS didn't torture Foley and others and that it was merely "enhanced interrogation."
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@frankcifaldi @laura_hudson Seems like a list worth growing!.@tvoti .@AlyssaRosenberg Here's a thing I wrote about the fabula/syuzhet idea years ago: http://t.co/qpPQhHk3xz.@tvoti .@AlyssaRosenberg Y'all familiar with "fabula" and "syuzhet'? Russian formalist terms, useful in Hello Kitty / Sopranos convo.@TimOfLegend @ValiantCheese Suicide Suggestion is the least metal Ozzy song.Hello Kitty died at the end of the Sopranos. Tony Soprano is a little girl, not a cat. #predictabletweets@PatrickRothfuss @scalzi Woah: they carry anthologies and autographed copies at the damn airport?@GrinnellCollege Confused. Wasn't music major. Took Trumpet lessons for credit '00-'01 -- included in tuition? Slightly increased tuition?
@drewgmackie I was finally chased away from the show by Brawl in the Family and the episodes that preceded it. Just wasn't fun anymore.@drewgmackie Terrible episode. Just terrible.@drewgmackie - which is that?@beukema I thought this was the year @kumailn's Comp Sci degree would finally pay off.
