Retweeted by Fred Beukema@XboxSupport Thx for reply. Are there steps for 360? Don't think the "Deactivate" step is available on 360.@XboxSupport @HBOGOhelp Tried deleting the app and all data, reinstalling. No dice. Getting anxious with Game of Thrones S5 coming. Help?@XboxSupport @HBOGOhelp Been getting a "Request timeout" error on my 360 for a couple weeks. No outage, everything else works incl Go on PC.

@MyLittleBloggie As the father of a prolific 4-year-old artist, this idea terrifies me. #somanytrains@AdamLevyGanesha Somewhere downtown? Headed there on Sunday, will have to keep an eye out.@fivemanjob What's the App? Does it have access to send SMS texts?@fivemanjob That sounds handy. Each time I try anything besides dictate a text, I want to sit down for a conference w/ Siri's designers.@fivemanjob Much of the time, Siri is worse than useless.So we gave a billionaire a stadium for free and we get the privilege of paying to pave the sidewalks? MN voters are the stupidest ever.

@ccolin Thankfully I thought @theofficenbc was a terrible idea & a mangling of a favorite show. Wrong about that; right about that evening.Ten years ago tonight, I went to the Chatterbox for a first date with a very cool lady. Happy and lucky to have built a life with her.Hey @kumailn, you may enjoy @moryan's feed right about now.Can't wait for Mulder and Scully to be out there not really solving any crimes.
Retweeted by Fred Beukema@kumailn I assume your management team is on full alert?@anildash I'm glad we have you as Twitter's most visible Prince fan. Lowers the heat on us MNans who get mild crap for cheerleading him.If you use the phrase "I sent a bunch of tweets" as part of a conversation on Twitter, you're probably doing something wrong.@GailSimone Your petitioner seems to think that antisemitic pogroms appeared as a "strange" lightning bolt in the 40s.@duntronic @stoatno1 @MetroTransitMN That would cause confusion and delay. Really useful buses stop at every stop.@stoatno1 @MetroTransitMN I imagined an anthropomorphic bus warily looking around, saying "this neighborhood's a little rough" & speeding on@stoatno1 @MetroTransitMN I don’t even know what this means.Listening to republicans talk about how well paid restaurant servers are makes me want to live in their glorious fantasy universe.

@dbrauer And now even that mistake’s being corrected!@dbrauer Don’t believe the Met Center or Met Stadium were private; guessing there never was one at major league level?(* Elliott, not Elliot)Almost like the orchestrator wanted to remind him that he probably wasn't going to win while he performed. So out of place.Listening to Elliot Smith perform at the '98 Oscars, you can tell the orchestra's set up to play a lot of Titanic music. #tinwhistle@Criterion Got my DVDs in the mail today -- Thanks!

@section_sign He's so gross. His song, too. His preemptive suit so scuzzy and stupid. This ruling, so wrong.Good thing the US District Court wasn't around to make Brahms give the Beethoven estate a cut of the royalties for his 1st Symphony.This could have a real chilling effect on musical creativity. Appeal it all the way to SCOTUS.So can every funky R&B band from the 70s/80s go after Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars now? Dislike Robin Thicke & his tactics, but this is nonsense.@ClackyJ If you of all people cannot, then what hope is there for the rest of us?I love that, due to her age, if Xanthippe Lannister Voorhees is named after the family from Game of Thrones, it's the book, not the show.@section_sign Thunderbro seems to be locked.
