Last Trip Shakespeare tweet for today. @OmnivoreRecords re-released first two records. Sound better than ever.@rainnwilson but the completely over looked and great record is Matt's "Burnt White and Blue" very worth a listen.@rainnwilson @MattWilsonMusic wrote many/most of those TS songs you like, esp lyrics. He's still crafting some beauty with @TwilightHours

Few things are more awful than having your plumbing rain down on you as you try to sort it out. And I think you know what I mean: "plumbing"

@Mike_Eagle the wife saw it, which led me to believe it wasn't really a true Chinese dish. Now must cook this recipe. As I watch the docI has heard that this recipe is not a real thing. But here it is in black and white. With pictures. http://t.co/MI2gN5MA0KCongrats to @DEMOmn for the opening of their new space. Way to hang with it guys!! Big ups.It never, ever gets old. 'The Troggs Tapes' remain the best example of band dysfunction ever captured. https://t.co/EBIqyfAwmF

I support you Governor!!@donpcarr @GovMarkDayton I do feel lucky we have such an active Governor. But the forces arrayed to make a huge stinking mess are powerful@donpcarr @StarTribune @GovMarkDayton @Polymet a brutal conclusion. Why can't @mndnr help? Mystifying.

@munsongs Have you heard the isolated bass track of "Roundabout"? Amazing. http://t.co/KrHLiztVUx
Retweeted by John Munson...but on top of all that is the playing, the inventiveness, the power and the singing. A great musician who changed me. RIP Chris.It is amazing to hear a bass sound that cuts and insists on it's melodic importance still be so deep and funky....On a bit of a Yes bender since the death of BASS GREAT CHRIS SQUIRE. The sound of his instrument alone is enough to cement his position...

@tony_gamble1 @DanWilsonMusic possibly still my favorite thing we ever did! The pink Pleasure spot makes it sexy. Find a cassette deck ASAP@BeschlossDC @LOLGOP I get so scared when I see these pictures. Terrifying.@larsleafblad sympathy. We just went to the park, played the games and parents asked, "did you have fun?" after we got home. Sigh.@MorganGustafer as a time torn man you would understand that better than most. Tonite I get to exorcise Bob on @wits Then back to hating.Is it possible that I have a soft spot for Bob Seger in my cold heart? I have so sternly professed otherwise for so long that I am shocked.
