Twitter Weekly Updates for 2012-06-04

  • Waited 15 mins at Kitchen 4140 for waitress to bring water or take order or even say "hi" during not-very-busy lunchtime. Gave up and left. #
  • Lot of nascent local bands seem to just want someone to come fit into their thing. Problem with that is they don't actually have a thing. #

  • Is there some music journalism teacher somewhere telling everyone the rule is "No matter what, be sure to ask about illegal downloading"? #
  • This technical support email from Travis Leeper @PreSonus is not encouraging. Didn't read and understand the problem, halfassed nonanswer. #

  • Greg Horn is undeniably a skilled artist but also alltime leader in comic-book covers that make one go 'ugh' #
  • Disappointed as I am that Community as we know it is over, at least people will stop sucking up to Donald Glover's Childish Gambino fantasy #
  • Going to give up on ever going to Pt Loma CVS again, it's not worth fighting for parking to get iffy service when Walgreens is across street #
  • That press release for Odd Future's new signing makes it sound like they're trying way too hard to stay impressive to 14 year old boys #
  • Everything about Men In Black 3 just screams joyless, rote regurgitation of the familiar based on accounting projections like little before #
  • Bill Fay made a new album??!!!?? #
  • Tin Can Ale House has an internet presence like my grandmother #
  • Twelve bucks seems a little steep for a show without a name headliner. #
  • @Steven_Hyden Must be Wenner's favorite. in reply to Steven_Hyden #
  • iOS users, Snapseed is free today and highly recommended by me for photo editing, especially on ipads. http://t.co/QFIUieT6 #
  • Now that everyone realizes 1 Million Moms is a toothless organization with little support, expect them to rename soon http://t.co/LA8hG2gU #
  • Either way, the fact that a largish corporation feels free to respond to homophobic threats by simply ignoring the backwards idiots is great #
  • Just discovered the most clueless & offputting self-promoter I know is actually trying to charge for his ineffective promotion services. #
  • Fortunately it's a self-defeating proposition by definition, but you almost have to respect such total lack of self-awareness…almost. #

  • @thisbrokenwheel Me too, but so much hype is starting to seep in around the edges that it's becoming an effort in reply to thisbrokenwheel #
  • RT @sugarfreak: When you see a dead person walking around THEN you can start talking about the coming zombie apocalypse. BUT NOT BEFORE. #

  • …and message pops up saying "You are not allowed to comment on this post." Then why give a comment field, Google+? Logged out of Google+. #
  • The most cutting-edge thing Radiohead could possibly do at this juncture would be to make an album of memorable songs #
  • Millard's Supercrooks#3 is like "Exposition, The Comic". When it's not just gross, of course. #
  • It's difficult for my reaction to every page of Supercrooks not to just be "Ugh, this is stupid" except for Yu's art. Every word is dumb tho #
