Besides it being a kickin’ track, that is.*genre career tweet composed and then deleted* I’m so petty, I know. @JoshuaDysart 2500 bombings in 18 months of 1971-1972. 2020 is gonna be a big one, but very differently. @JoshuaDysart What’s funny is looking at the amount of home-grown explosive devices that were planted around spots… https://t.co/gMHuqkLLN1 @quartzcity A little too real.Every time I see a tweet like "kids are going to learn about this in history class", I wonder where they live that… https://t.co/W82EhgXBaB
Retweeted by Critical Nostalgia @quartzcity Just like his brother.Yup. I hate your favorite show (to steal @graemem’s tagline from a long, long time ago.)I wish I could shut my brain up. Really I do.“We demand sitcom antics!” And “We demand a real-world reckoning for fictional antics!” Doesn’t work unless you’re on a supremely zen level.Still. It’s tough to disassemble the machine while you’re tooling around in it.I know. We’re all trapped ultimately in the edifice of language, for instance.

You might get on that.Play it tonight: https://t.co/0Nf9aGmGUl @jeffparker Honestly stunned it took this long into his presidency for riots in front of the WH. @empire_of_dust_ I looked at that and shook my head.

Today has clearly had enough of me and the feeling is mutual.Better not make any career field tweets tonight. Nope. No siree. @DelDinosaur Need someone kinda hulking and chunky. Of course on our cursed earth, that means they hire James Corden.It's the same fight. It's always been the same fight. @DelDinosaur Who wanted this?Whoa. Hell yeah indeed. https://t.co/CSFj20owwB
