Austin City Limits Radio: afternoon host, Brand Marshal. Texas Monthly: Writer-At-Large, host Of The National Podcast Of Texas. Esquire (2002-2016)
I’m probably last to know, but thanks to the new Janis Joplin bio from Holly George-Warren (out 10/22), just learned that @TexasMonthly’s Pat Sharpe wrote the first real Janis profile ever for the @thedailytexan: https://t.co/QOiKS3XWE9
My wife had serious knee surgery recently, so we have a temp handicap parking pass. Every day, we're shocked by how few spaces/how inconvenient they are at places like medical office parks, groceries. Chad shouldn't have to deal w/ this shit anywhere, let alone new city buildings twitter.com/TheeChad/statu…
This new @benleemusic cover of “Speeding Motorcycle” was slated for a new covers album prior to Daniel Johnston’s passing and was released this morning. How do we petition for a full-length Daniel tribute from The Bens (Lee, @benkweller, @BenFolds)? stereogum.com/2058575/ben-le…
Incidentally: After my interview with Ted Cruz for the podcast, he asked about impact of Austin’s homeless camping ordinance. I knew what he wanted to hear and didn’t give it to him. Instead, I filibustered w/ a long rant about the dockless scooter scourge. #constituentfeedback twitter.com/jdawsey1/statu…
Small success of the day: by listening to them back-to-back often enough, I’ve successfully trained Spotify’s AI to suggest them that way in today’s personalized Daily Mix. https://t.co/OXxUz6hHaT

My favorite sentence- presented brilliantly almost as a throwaway- in this terrific @NYMag profile of sleazeball big cat abuser Joe Exotic is about his sideburns. Shocking and grotesque, but also makes sense. nymag.com/intelligencer/… https://t.co/GpJEwpeI1A
This is genuinely genius. No taking out a folded paper from your pocket that’s always opens to the wrong day or consulting a janky app. twitter.com/scottgum/statu…
Was entirely swept up by last night’s @Glen_Hansard‘s Stubbs’s show. Javier Mas, from Leonard Cohen’s Band, was stunning and Hansard- who’s done so much to spread Daniel Johnston’s music- gorgeously covered “Life In Vain.” 2.5 hrs and I never once thought to take pics or video.
@Andylanger the idea behind the design of this building reminds me of our (fun!) conversation yesterday about in-person live experiences. Smart. twitter.com/kmfaclassical/…
 
Yep. And I also like that they are throwing a nod to its fish hatchery roots.

In 2016, in his NWA induction speech, @icecube outlined the common sense standard: “Rock and roll is not an instrument, rock and roll is not even a style of music. Rock and roll is a spirit...And what connects us all is that spirit.” Willie undoubtedly has that spirit. twitter.com/toknobbit/stat…
Willie Nelson. It’s an embarrassing omission at this point and there’s not a single reasonable argument against his enshrinement. Try me. twitter.com/thatericalper/…

Sidenote: the name Finery came from @DanRather. @BrooklynDecker's co-founder is @whitneycasey - who used to work at CBS in the Rather era. He would see her in the hall from time to time and say, "Well you showed up in your finery today..." (finery = Sunday best) twitter.com/BrooklynDecker…

Seriously, this profile is so good it deserves to be behind a $10 paywall. That anyone can just click and read is kind of crazy (and beautiful)
Prepping to have the director of @MollyIvinsFilm (Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins) on my @TexasMonthly podcast and just read for the first time this incredible @mimiswartz TM profile of Ivins from 1992. Imagine if Molly saw this presidency? texasmonthly.com/politics/the-p…

I shifted Day Two of 2 my Vampire-Weekend-Wore-What? rant to Facebook re: shorts onstage. A friend dropped by to say “You should’ve seen Ezra’s corny Chacos on night one.” Now I have. Jeez. I bet he’s the guy who takes off his shoes and socks on airplanes. https://t.co/g32wps8sO7
From googling, I know now it’s not a HIPPA violation, but was taken aback at a doctor’s appointment this morning where they called people in from the waiting room by first and LAST name. Seems like way more of a disclosure than even the sign-in sheet is.

I never second guess festival schedulers because it’s 3D political chess and ACL has been super-generous to high-profile Austinites likes Spoon, Shakey Graves, and Gary Clark Jr. with basically uncontested twilight slots in the past, but this year Gary got the shortest of straws: https://t.co/6Cs5aCAcBx

ICYMI: From the new issue, my Q&A with @codyjohnson: twitter.com/texasmonthly/s…
Her mother would preemptively call occasionally with apologies, but those were unnecessary apologies. Radio is a solitary pursuit done alone in a small room, so was affirming to know someone was home listening so intensely. I occasionally wonder what became of her.
In the late 90’s at @101x there was a teenager with a Rainman-like compulsion to track/log every song she heard on the station-hours/days at a time. Since I played exclusively new music long before Shazam-ing, she’d call every shift and have me slowly read back what I’d played. twitter.com/thecjmorgan/st…
Nice review of last night’s @ACL_RADIO Blues On The Green. And can confirm: I’ve stood in front of crowds hundreds of times introducing bands, but until last night, never once been intentionality flashed. austinchronicle.com/daily/music/20…

So many private texts asking for the name of the restaurant, which I won’t answer because it’s genuinely a favorite w/ an otherwise stellar reputation. Maybe my friends are just looking for super-clean places to eat?
I spend a lot of mental/emotional energy railing against pop culture contrarians who routinely shit on good things simply to stand out. They’ve rendered me relunctant to say I genuinely hated Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Trolls have ruined the occasional unpopular opinion.
I’m being trolled by my otherwise favorite Austin restaurant that I recently tweeted- w/o remotely naming them- constantly mops floors during service hours and routinely ruins my food w/ a strong bleach stench. Today, they pulled the bucket up to my table and left it. https://t.co/B84Ps8f1JB
