@tony_gamble1 @DanWilsonMusic possibly still my favorite thing we ever did! The pink Pleasure spot makes it sexy. Find a cassette deck ASAP@BeschlossDC @LOLGOP I get so scared when I see these pictures. Terrifying.@larsleafblad sympathy. We just went to the park, played the games and parents asked, "did you have fun?" after we got home. Sigh.@MorganGustafer as a time torn man you would understand that better than most. Tonite I get to exorcise Bob on @wits Then back to hating.Is it possible that I have a soft spot for Bob Seger in my cold heart? I have so sternly professed otherwise for so long that I am shocked.

And then I think about the times I tried to get things to grow in my apt windowsill.Mpls! My show at @TheCCU is tomorrow! There'll be jokes about sex and Johnny Appleseed and other things, too, maybe. http://t.co/EEmUj2lAHN

@markatruslow I remember that gig. It happened during either the World Series or ALCS of 1991. Hard to tear away from @Twins to play show!@steadycraig that one'll get you. Hallmark of greatness: big real tears.@AliLozoff @HarMarSuperstar @winnerbowzer @wits Wow Sean. That's your record. Overdub a guitar and done. How could you sing it better?Not just @HarMarSuperstar but with @munsongs @winnerbowzer all The Witnesses & a horn section. MUST WATCH. https://t.co/CvWhfiKpJN

@broglund we adopted our first foster. It happens pretty often I think.@broglund we are fostering dogs. Sort of great. You get to meet and look after dogs and help find families or people that will love themSort of hate that teams from Anaheim and Tampa Bay are this good at hockey.

Some days are just better than others. Don't take personally other days. It's probably not you. It's me.@AliLozoff @coreyschreppel @HarMarSuperstar I can't get the new song out of my head. "How Will I Get Through The Day?" (-;@coreyschreppel @HarMarSuperstar @wits Coooorrrrry!!! *delivered in voice of Colonel Klink*...frame. But @HarMarSuperstar 's charisma and commitment to purpose are undeniable. He is all in on getting it out and into the room.Thoughts on @HarMarSuperstar last night on @wits. His powerful, soulful voice is all the more surprising when it comes out of his compact...

@mnwild The main change I'd like to see is guys treating the puck like gold rather than turning it over.And of course, "playing their game."@JakeRudh @DakotaJazzClub @TheEnglishBeat How many original members?

@MacMerge @SaturnBham I thought you were going say "at The Nick!" And I was gonna advise you to be wary of knife play.Well. You can't turn the puck over like that and have any hope against a good team.@charleslaughlin I don't know enough to do it for real. Unfortunately. And I'd be terribly biased.Drifting through the neutral zone and Kane makes them pay. Blah.Oduya totally tried to (and did) injure as he went into the boards. Lame vicious play. #NHL should review and fine.How is that not a trip?!! #mnwild

@nellie_mckay tonight at @DakotaJazzClub great music!Extreme anxiety setting in as #mnwild begin the third. I get a full bun workout as I sit on this couch. Oh, the clenching!I think we should dub Spurgeon D'Artagnan if he keeps on with his musketeers beard and stache. #mnwildJames Bohn does throw down quite righteously. It needs to be said.DROP THE PUCK BEFORE I LOSE MY MiND! #mnwildWhich @mnwild will show up today? Dying of curiosity.Old ways at The Masonic Temple in Winona. http://t.co/O4tvufGRJn
