Why I hate twitter. Also a cool artist.

SO I haven’t been updating here very much at all because I have become, in the past few months, a chronic twitter user. There are some things I really like about it, and I have actually met some really cool people from it. However, I am often struck by how much awesome stuff I post (naturally, because I am awesome) that no one seems to appreciate. Buaha. I mean that but in a less jerky way. I just like how I can post things I find interesting here and people can come across it years later. On twitter, if you don’t catch their interest in those 140 characters in the appropriate time-span, it’s forgotten forever. (Except probably to be found for blackmail purposes in the future.)

Here is something I twittered about that no one cared about!

This artist, John Baizley, is the fucking LEAD SINGER OF BARONESS. Besides being probably the “heavy” band I most enjoy and respect, he’s a fucking talented visual artist as well. I HATE PEOPLE LIKE THIS. Well, not really, but what’s up with them? Maybe with meth injections every morning I would be as prolific. Must work on that.

    Haven’t checked out the vinyl yet….

  4. A,
    Cool beans. Never heard of this artist or his band, thanks.

    My friend, @Vanadia on twitter, said, “Twitter is like a cat. You say stuff to it & hope it will have an unexpected reaction… but it usually just lays there”.

    He obviously doesn’t own a cat who can do backflips,
