Say what? Need pictures. Also soundtrack.


Thankfully I can't transfer VCR to digital! Soundtrack is no good, I mimed as the camera glided past because I didn't want them to record my terrible singing. I was forced to join the choir to make up numbers even though I sound like a strangled cat.

Yes, forced to join the choir & forced to wear a kilt & shawl. Possibly the worst of all my childhood abuses.

I thought it was neat when WFMU retweeted me. Andrew WK is a follower. That's about it.

Eva from Rolo Tomassi (one of my favourite bands) tweeted at me saying she likes both crunchy and smooth peanut butter, but today she had crunchy. Ah, the useful things you discover on Twitter. <3

Eddie Argos of Art Brut. I ended up picking up a comic book for him because he was playing in NYC on a Wednesday and the comic shop nearest the venue was out of the one he wanted.

Also Neil Gaiman, Simon Spurrier and Sxip Shirey. Do they count as famous?

ETA: I totally remember Reznor getting pissy about people on the Internet and flouncing off Twitter.

Trent deleted his twitter shortly after that and I don't think my boyfriend ever sent twitter messages to anybody after that.

She's only famous to a couple thousand people, but KC from the Planet Podcast would tweet me occasionally about music and colleges.
Also one time I got picked randomly from Malinda Lo's followers to get a free copy of her book Ash! She signed it and sent it to me an everything. :)

Did I miss the explanation? What he said and what Trent said to him?

Without wishing to brag, Phil Jupitus lives in my town. It is fairly common to see him out and about.

I'm probably the only one who thinks this is AMAZING, but the guy who tweets officially for the Vancouver Canucks wants to read the article I wrote in VegNews where I say the Canucks are going to win the Stanley Cup. I picture him getting it and showing the team and them giving me box seats for the entire playoffs and letting me take the Stanley Cup home when they win it. :)

Obviously not going to happen, but one can dream! Anyway, the dude tweeted me. I love twitter.

Sorry, I don't log in very often. Basically Trent had this whole thing going about a guy who was a friend of a friend who was dying of some treatable disease, but couldn't pay for the operation. I think at some point Trent said that his fans should 'Pray' that he could get the operation. And then my partner said that praying wasn't going to cut it, and that encouraging people to sit around and do nothing wasn't going to help. I think Trent called him a disgusting human being who didn't understand other people's suffering, or something like that. Anyway the guy died which was horrible because he just needed a transplant. Of course, not Trent's fault, he did raise a whole bunch of money. This was right before Trent deleted his twitter account so I think it was already at a time when he was really frustrated.
