BONUS POINTS if you know what classic musical the above headline is semi-cribbed/paraphrased from. Hint: if you went to my high school, I played a member of “the chorus” in 11th grade. Yes, I was a semi half-assed drama nerd. Sometime I’ll tell you about starring in my best friend Steven’s postmodernist student play “A Grand View of the 20th Century” in which deceased historical figures came together in a kind of purgatory to discuss the meaning of life. JFK, Bette Davis, Isadora Duncan, MLK, Gertrude Stein. You know. Postmodernism. As interpreted by a gay 17-year-old classical music composer with a deep knowledge of 1940s literature and 1980s homosexual British period films. Let’s just say I knew who Hugh Grant was before anybody in the States gave a fuck. Thanks Steven. (He went on to music-direct a Philharmonic of a major American borough. Mine!)
So the point of this post is that I am twittering. I am not sure why; Sasha apparently has some good arguments as to why it is useful or at all interesting but he has not posed them to me yet. (Says Will, upon hearing that Joe Trippi has a twitter account: “pundits love it because it makes them seem connected, accessible and in touch with technology without actually having to be any of those things.”) But apparently I like it nevertheless because I am twittering the HAYELL out of my life. Don’t worry I won’t use it to tell you where I’m eating brunch (ok I totally did that today though). Mostly I’m trying to be useful about it and speed-blog when I wanna share a link. If you think this sounds interesting to you (it does), you should be-twitter me. And we can twitter our faces off. Together. As one. Fuck privacy!
P.S. While you’re there you should be-twitter Jeff Chang, as he is at the DNC and twittering very interestingly. Out of all the people covering onsite, he is probably the one I trust most not to lameify or wackithroat his twitter reports. Recent Jeff Chang DNC Twitter post: “Lotsa stuff on sale. Obama shirts next to hi hater/bye hater shirts” See?
