While researching magicians tonight for something I’m working on, was delighted to run across this @pennjillette anecdote from @EnswellJones’ instantly classic 2012 Esquire profile of Penn and Teller’s @mrteller: https://t.co/IAif1TOqY9
This Wednesday: @wildchildsounds headlines our 3rd of 4 free @KGSR Blues On The Green shows. Free. Zilker. 8pm. https://t.co/AQ7J3H4iG6

I got this email. But also went out to the driveway and found my paper. https://t.co/1RqyqwomtU
Just published: my @TexasMonthly National Podcast Of Texas conversation about what’s happening at the border with @edlavaCNN. Plus, @RadneyFoster on his new Spanish-language “prayer for the border.” texasmonthly.com/podcast/ed-lav…

This Daily Texan reporter’s live-tweeting of the jury selection process for the trial of Meechaiel Criner, indicted in connection to the capital murder of Haruka Weiser, is a fascinating glimpse into the system: twitter.com/meganmenchaca1…

After Sesame Street set tour, they took us to 2nd floor observation room to watch taping from above.

Interesting thread re: dockless bikes being left in handicapped parking zones/wheelchair right of ways. Also can’t help but think it’s sadly inventible someone on a dockless scooter is gonna wind up clipped by a car and eventually need one of these spaces. twitter.com/theechad/statu…

#FourthofJuly2018 is the framework for my interview with Admiral McRaven. I found him to be a ultra-rare voice of sincerity and reason. In 30 minutes he significantly enhanced my understanding of the holiday. twitter.com/texasmonthly/s…

Admiral William H. McRaven is my guest on this special edition of @TexasMonthly’s National Podcast Of Texas: texasmonthly.com/politics/admir…
I understand your lack of social media enthusiasm for my podcast. Everyone has a podcast. I get it. But, today’s guest - on a special 4th of July show about patriotism- is singular:he’s perhaps the most thoughtful and principled gentleman I’ve ever sat across from and questioned
I’ll help do play-by-play again at this years’s @RKCelebrityJam and while I’m technically retired, if I bring HR clout to my upcoming mini-season w/ @TexasMonthly’s Burkas squad, I may well ask the Brauns for an AB. twitter.com/jjgottsch/stat…

After Coca-Cola bought Topo Chico, the price of Austinites' favorite sparkling water went up and the Mexican import started disappearing from many Austin bars and restaurants. That's good news for four Austin-based water brands profiled by @ariauber: mystatesman.com/lifestyles/foo…
 
I gotta say, I love Waterloo. Also: no sodium in it, so you're actually refreshed after
 
I like Big Swig, Waterloo and Rambler and buy all three- but I don't see anywhere in the story that proves a price increase for Topo...just fans who "expressed concern online, worried about potential changes or cost increases."
On the just-posted new edition of @TexasMonthly’s National Podcast Of Texas, I talk immigration and what’s happening at the border with stand-up @realmoamer - who fled Kuwait during 1st Gulf War and arrived in Houston as a nine-year-old refugee. texasmonthly.com/podcast/mo-kno…

RT @TStorm_Warning: @Andylanger The doc carves out exceptions for SXSW, Ultra, and Jazzfest apparently. ampthemag.com/wp-content/upl…
Coachella artists regularly play SXSW- which would seemingly fall under the radius clause outlined here. Do they get exemptions to do so or ask forgiveness later? rollingstone.com/music/news/coa…
These ought to come with a “past performance is no guarantee of future results” disclosure. twitter.com/nprmusic/statu…

Awful excuse for an awful piece from someone who otherwise seems to do thoughtful work. Clinging to the lentil bit is another mistake, but I suspect regret for rushing this half-baked piece of clickbait onto the "old Online" must run deep, twitter.com/olgakhazan/sta…

This reinforces one of my most controversial music nerd theories: had Def Leppard broken up after 1992’s Adrenalize and stayed that way till 2007 or so, they’d have returned a Coachella headliner- beloved without irony, respected exactly the way @mattnathanson does here. twitter.com/mattnathanson/…

Sure, maybe you’re headed to Bonnaroo, but when did it become okay to wear flip-flops on the plane?
The guy who asks the four other people in a five person Southwest boarding group exactly what number they are so they’re lined up numerically perfect is my enemy.
It’s some real outlaw shit and I thing it’s an example of Twitter’s best use. I also think other musicians who care about issues but fear alienating their fanbases can learn a lot from his feed. Also, it’s obvious he puts considerable money/time/energy into walking the walk.
Is #FF still a thing? In April, I moderated a @EmergeLV panel w/ Jars Of Clay’s Dan Haseltine @scribblepotemus I’m no Christian rock authority, but his feed impresses me daily. He’s a “Questioner”, boldly pushing back/seeking truth/justice at the risk of his own bottom line.
Just spitballing with only anecdotal evidence, but is it harder to keep new nice restaurants afloat in North Austin than in South Austin?
This guy is chasing another selfie-stick-wielding guy down Congress yelling “Fellow live streamer!,” in hopes they can cross streams. This could only be dorkier if there were on dockless scooters. https://t.co/s3yaQy6zYf
There’s good reporting here about a legacy festival’s struggles to stay relevant, but it’s buried by self-reverential self-righteous grandstanding. Cover it. Don’t cover it. But a piece about why you’re not covering it? Get over yourselves. twitter.com/consequence/st…
That’s there’s so many unnamed sources quoted here- folks that still fear getting Dixie Chicked by the same cowards that Dixie Chicked the Dixie Chicks and presumably, a new wave of weasels- speaks volumes twitter.com/marissarmoss/s…

Unless, in fact, the individual publications “covering” this are footing the bill for the expense to get to and from a listening session for an album that’s streamable hours later, this is gross and shady. variety.com/2018/music/new…

Writing about Willie is MUCH harder than it appears and @richcohen2003 does it really gracefully here. Even more difficult: getting Willie to smile for a photo and @la_Barbecue's LeAnn Mueller absolutely nails it w/ the cover photo. twitter.com/WilliesReserve…
Not ready to say goodbye to my favorite show, @TheAmericansFX. I'm going to miss the disguises, @MargoMartindale, the line-dancing, the music (Tusk! More Than This! Yaz!), and hiding my eyes for at least 15 minutes of every show. [Would love to see Martha just one more time].
 
Stalked your office this afternoon looking to talk about last night. Sadly, you were not there.
