  • 19:01 @Dianasaurus But I thought kids loved Chris Matthews' giant cartoon head. #
  • 19:40 @RickieJohnston Hey Rickie, should I go to law school, or grad school in art history with an emphasis on the Getman expressionists? #
  • 19:43 @Caissie Though I'm also considering the Skechers eyeglasses, which will make my rotund eyeballs all thin and lean! #
  • 19:50 @Caissie Are you saying my eyes are fat? How could you? I'd cry if my tear ducts weren't all squeezed shut by my enormous, pot-bellied eyes. #
  • 19:54 @Caissie My mom always had to buy me the extra-husky Garanimals glasses at Sears. It was embarrassing! #

  • 20:28 @balycooley God, I know. Just one taco truck is all I ask. #
  • 13:33 @Mike_Doughty_ I like the new MIA album, and I don't really understand the strength and seeming-universality of the backlash. #
  • 13:35 Ha RT @carolrhartsell: When did Mel Gibson start releasing tapes like Bin Laden? #
  • 14:16 @mways I think the Sklar Brothers should shake things up by adding a third brother to the act. Maybe the "Urkel" guy. #
  • 14:34 @MikeDrucker It's like @Mythbusters ending a season with Scottie coming out of the shower, and the previous 5 seasons were a dream. #
  • 14:38 Our long national nightmare is over: The Hills ended last night. #
  • 14:59 I'm listening to this right now, and it's amazing: Dubstep version of 1979's War Of The Worlds album: bit.ly/acI6H4 #
  • 15:44 @mshowalter @ZakOrth is wonderful in your video. #
  • 15:49 @GiuliaRozzi Atheists say OM (complete lack of) G. #
  • 16:03 If you haven't seen the video of MIA on Letterman last night, she pretty much destroyed: bit.ly/b2ESI6 #
  • 16:13 @bostonspaceship JUGGERNAUT VS MONOLITH! #
  • 17:08 @mirandachale I think Piers should take a long walk off himself. #
  • 17:13 @balycooley Do you know Katie Riffey? She is becoming a paramedic even as we speak! I'm trying to remember her Twitter handle. #
  • 17:13 @pattonoswalt Talking at you greatly reduces one's ability to achieve a cheeseburger. #
  • 17:16 @balycooley Riffey is definitely on The Facebook, though. #
  • 18:08 I'm @ThePIT for Recess. Audience of six for a free show? Really? It's FREE, people! #

  • 08:03 Ha!!! RT @bernieh: Atom Age Vampire #movieswith @batemanimation #
  • 11:56 Since it's likely to be in Twitter Limbo for a good 10-14 days (at least), I'll be posting some @Disalmanac tweets here daily. Yay! #
  • 11:58 @Disalmanac: Yesterday in 1937, Bill Cosby was born. He stays young by sleeping in a hyperbaric sweater. #
  • 12:01 @SeanCrespo They suspended it for aggressive following. I should be able to get it re-instated, but they only have like, one guy in support. #
  • 12:05 .@Disalmanac: Yesterday in 1895, Buckminster Fuller was born. He was best known for his huge Buckyballs. #
  • 13:14 .@Disalmanac: Today in 2008, some dude saw a double rainbow and totally lost his shit. #
  • 13:15 If you're on The Facebook, then please become a fan of Disalmanac there: bit.ly/a4FALV #
  • 13:41 .@Disalmanac: Today in 1942, Harrison Ford was born. Later, George Lucas went back and added pointless CGI to the birth. #
  • 13:47 @joselynhughes OMG did you see Human Egg Carton Caterpillar??? #
  • 14:12 .@Disalmanac: FACT: High definition TVs work best with Cheech & Chong movies. #
  • 14:28 @RobMcNairHuff They already have what can only be desribed as a "Cheech & Chong Effect" at work in the iTunes Visualizer. #
  • 14:31 This is truly a great day in the history of verification! RT @PFTompkins: LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: I am verified. #
  • 14:31 LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: I'm verified. #5WordsBeforeSex #
  • 15:35 .@Disalmanac: FACT: The film "The Matrix" is based on the little seen 1985 film, "The Dot Matrix." #
  • 15:36 @bobharrisdotcom ALL OF THEM. #
  • 18:10 .@Disalmanac: CORRECTION: "Despicable Me" is not a biopic about Mel Gibson. #
  • 18:32 @nico117 I just got my wish--@Disalmanac's been re-instated! #
  • 18:33 If you enjoyed my @Disalmanac tweets today, please go follow it--it's been re-instated! Huzzah! #
  • 18:38 @KenPlume You're invited to the @Disalmanac cruise. BYOB (where the second B stands for 'boat'). #
  • 18:57 I just heard the new Tom Jones single, which is a surprisingly faithful John Lee Hooker cover. It is awesomeness. #

  • 22:17 @joegarden Booker T's album last year included an instrumental version of "Hey Ya." #
  • 11:49 @joegarden Yeah, Booker T's most recent album is fantastic. His back-up band is Drive-By Truckers, and Neil Young plays lead guitar! #
  • 11:57 I met Harvey Pekar a few times. He was just as curmudgeon-y as you'd like, but also a great guy who really knew his old music. RIP. #
  • 11:59 The @Disalmanac Twitter feed is still down; no ETA for when it'll be back. Hopefully today! Stay tuned. #
  • 12:56 @SeanCrespo Just reboot the Hulk without telling Marvel. They'll be pleasantly surprised! #
  • 17:05 .@Disalmanac is still suspended; I've heard it can take anywhere from a day to two months to get re-instated...? Great. #
  • 17:08 Does anyone have any experience with getting Twitter to re-instate a suspended account? #
  • 17:34 @travisnichols I think I followed too many people in too short a time? #
  • 17:35 @Strabd I don't want to lose the followers I'd built up there. #

  • 10:15 In mere weeks, you'll be able to see the video I directed for Robert Pollard's (Guided By Voices) new band, @bostonspaceship. Weeks! #
  • 10:17 @joegarden Not if you wore that orange Sundance shirt, they didn't. #
  • 10:23 You guys, I'm really worried about this psychotic octopus. Does it have weapons? #
  • 15:00 Me: "I wonder what Lindsay Lohan's fingernail says now." Amy: "Oops...?" #
  • 17:14 Never argue with a psychotic octopus. #
  • 17:44 My other Twitter feed, @Disalmanac has been suspended; hopefully, this will only be temporary. I broke rules about aggressive following. #
  • 17:53 @introvertedone I have apologized to Twitter and hopefully they will re-instate it soon. I hope I get to keep my followers and tweets. #
  • 18:09 @andybugay It's crazy. Hopefully, everything will be OK. Still waiting to hear back. #
  • 18:49 @euphoriafish I think Radio Days is even sweeter, but Purple Rose Of Cairo is quite good. #
  • 19:04 @MamaSpell I'm sorry I can't make it; hope it's going swimmingly! #
  • 19:04 @euphoriafish Mid-'80s Woody Allen was a good period--also see Broadway Danny Rose if you haven't already! #

  • 20:39 Which episode of MST3K should we watch tonight? We have a LOT of episodes to choose from. #
  • 21:07 Thanks for all the MST3K suggestions! We're going with "The Space Children." We love Doctor Woman, #
  • 21:22 @colleenaf Depends on which direction he chose to walk to Japan. #
  • 22:18 We have survived Space Children. Which MST3K episode should we watch next? #
  • 22:19 @MamaSpell Wow! Is that even possible? #
  • 22:21 @Caissie Holy cow! That's you! You were on The TV and everything! #
  • 22:22 For the next MST3K, we're going with San Francisco International. I'm not sure I'm ready for this much Pernell Roberts. #
  • 12:17 Happy birthday to @KenPlume. Long may he wave. #
  • 12:26 My new rap name: Jay Peggy Peg. #
  • 14:22 @KenPlume Um, no! There certainly aren't dozens of hidden cameras broadcasting your every move on a special pay-per-view channel! Why? #
  • 14:25 @lizzwinstead My Pet Goat, Which I Shot From A Helicopter #PalinsBook4Kids #
  • 14:37 @snowak Manos, The Hands Of Fate? Are you trying to kill me? #
  • 14:43 I can't stop talking like Sheriff John Bunnell today. "Starbucks has great lattes, but some crooks need a latte of justice!" #
  • 14:47 @Mike_Doughty_ Hey, great set at 92Y Tribeca the other night! #
  • 17:39 @jamiekilstein That's a great cat name! One of ours is named Prince Of Space. #
  • 17:40 That last tweet was supposed to be for @carolrhartsell, not @jamiekilstein. @jamiekilstein must never our cats' names. #

  • 20:28 @Dianasaurus LANGUAGE! #
  • 20:38 Still hoping that during tonight's show, LeBron comes out. #
  • 12:50 #ff My new Twitter project @Disalmanac: fake trivia to help you get through your fake day. #
  • 13:45 On my way to MoMA to live-tweet the crap out of some Chagalls, Slappy! #
  • 15:02 @Caissie Mmmmmmmm, worms. #
  • 15:03 @mocoddle Thank ye, as Amish tweeters are wont to tweet! #
  • 15:08 Haha, what a dumb Chagall painting! #there #
  • 15:14 Word of warning if you want to visit MoMA soon: they've set up a mic & are letting museum-goers perform Yoko Ono's Voice Piece For Soprano. #
  • 15:16 I know that last tweet sounds like something I would make up, but it is 100% true. #
  • 17:41 RT @Disalmanac: Today in 1900, viewers were outraged and disgusted by the new moving picture "Human Velocipede." #
  • 17:42 @balycooley It's true: I am me! #
  • 17:44 @MikeDrucker That's why @chamillionaire makes chamillions of dollars every year. #
  • 18:32 I wish the animal predicting the World Cup outcome was a psychotic octopus. #
  • 18:36 Yes, I would watch a 60-minute show every week of just these Sheriff John Bunnell introductions: bit.ly/9V9O35 #
  • 18:49 @mocoddle @InfiniteChicken Cans! It was cans! #keanu #

  • 21:58 @travisnichols Chicago in the '70s is OK. Chicago in the '80s is a giant turd-like item. Bauhaus is always inappropriate for them. #
  • 22:02 If you missed @MamaSpell's 2-year anniversary Shrink show tonight, then you have missed an amazing thing indeed, my friend. #
  • 11:53 I hope LeBron James announces he's joining Panic! At The Disco. #
  • 13:49 @Caissie You're in a Bob Evans? Because that's my idea of Hell. #
  • 13:53 @balycooley Lard is the most important of the four food groups. Eat some every day! #
  • 13:57 @Caissie Can you go on strike? Or do what I do: spend all day writing at the Starbucks by the Chrysler Building. #
  • 15:04 What happens if Miami wants LeBron, but all the votes for him go to Pat Buchanan instead? #
  • 15:13 I hope LeBron opens his show tonight with a big musical number! #
  • 19:04 Hey! Go watch comedy and M Doughty at 92YTribeca tonight! I am! So there! #

  • 21:34 Free Toblerone for all the ladies! #MSTieCon #
  • 21:37 Admission: Two twenties. That's thirty bucks! #MSTieCon #
  • 22:17 The Van Allen Belts #over4prince #
  • 22:20 Ice cubes #over4prince #
  • 22:24 @sgnp In my neighborhood, the subway is above ground, and yet they don't call it the Superway. #
  • 22:26 Ice cubes #over4prince #
  • 22:39 Stairway To Where I'll Be Shortly #RockOfAging #
  • 15:04 @SaraJBenincasa I saw Wallace Shawn shopping for art books at Powells Books in Portland once; had basically the same reaction. #
  • 16:54 @MamaSpell I'm planning on attending! Make me some extra Shrink Mix! #
  • 17:45 @travisnichols There's a music video of the band Chicago doing one of their syrupy ballads while Peter Cetera wears a Bauhaus tee. #

  • 14:35 101 in NYC today. Children on street corners are frolicking in great torrents of taxi driver sweat. #
  • 14:39 My prediction: Lebron James will quit basketball to focus on not winning the Super Bowl, the World Series & the National Spelling Bee. #
  • 15:13 I'm happy that Frida Kahlo is trending. Now let's work on Otto Dix! #
  • 16:04 @scharpling Let me know if you need a higher-res version of the Boston Spaceships video for the DVD. #
  • 16:07 If you need to cool yourself today, watch this video I did of @Thaogetstaydown's song "Cool Yourself" www.vimeo.com/7148647 #
  • 18:24 @KenPlume The Falls, the Peter Greenaway mockumentary? #
  • 18:25 @InfiniteChicken My favorite thing about marmosets is, of course, the 24-inch spinning rims. #
