Every Friday I offer up favorite items from my Tweet stream. Sometimes funny, or beautiful, or strange, it’s all good! Enjoy!
NOTE: I’m abandoning the spiffy formatting Twitter allows now to embed tweets. Turns out, the formatting isn’t transferred to RSS or blog by email, so in those cases, it just looks like sloppy formatting. Can’t have that!
@pourmecoffee “Obama needs to prepare nation for slow economic growth this quarter as March Madness bracketology cuts productivity in half.”
@PauleyP The link for OUTSTANDING #8LA play tonight and LOOK at the CAST! It was AMAZING!
[SEO: A 90 minute work derived from court transcripts of the appeal against Proposition 8 in California, which made it illegal for gays to marry. The opposition tried to bury these transcripts because, well, they had no case. And don’t think this is just a dry reading of transcripts. It’s directed by Rob Reiner, and with this all star cast (George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Bacon, Jane Lynch, etc etc), there are funny, poignant, and ironic moments. All the real life major players come up onstage at the end. The video should automatically skip ahead to the 29 minute mark where the play begins.]

[SEO: This is a slideshow counting down from number 10 to 1, with each slide offering the original video of that song. What a trip down Memory Lane! RIP Davy Jones.]

@mjdub 31 Crazy Potato Chip Flavors
[SEO: Who knew?! Cajun Squirrel? Blueberry? Red Caviar? Umm Haggis? (Not going there.) Smoked Salmon with Capers? (That actually sounds kind of yummy.) ]
