Austin City Limits Radio: afternoon host, Brand Marshal. Texas Monthly: Writer-At-Large, host Of The National Podcast Of Texas. Esquire (2002-2016)
For the first time since 2012, we have a new location for our @ACL_RADIO Live Morning Broadcasts. 30 bands across 4 mornings. 6-10am Wednesday the 18th through Friday the 20th. 8am-noon on Saturday 3/21. Initial lineup coming Monday. https://t.co/ZRtWnx6mMw
If you need a little push towards truly believing it’ll be the kids that dig us out of this hole and rebuild our democracy, try this HBO doc. It’s the dorky version of Cheer, but just as inspiring (and only an hour long). This @NYT recco got me to watch: https://t.co/i9bB8s1mqj
Watched a screener of @giorgieangelini's new doc about Pepe last night with @myjerusalem and his assessment mirrors mine. What he forgot to mention is that it won a jury award at Sundance and will also be shown at @sxsw twitter.com/myjerusalem/st…

This @MensHealthMag profile of Austin-based supplement-selling “high-low, fuck-yeah-big-ideas style” lifestyle guru Aubrey Marcus and his Onnit empire by @bananapeele is bonkers in the best ways: menshealth.com/fitness/a30897…
New @WillieNelson coming 4/24. Title track: youtu.be/3ticn0QrQwc
My offer this morning to pick up @veracruztacos for a friend - a radio announcer who articulates VERY clearly for her living- is a reminder that Apple’s Speech-To-Text recognition software still needs some work: https://t.co/c7e0OW11jr
Super-shitty that the Statesman still has a mugshot gallery and traffics in public shame for money... twitter.com/MarshallProj/s…

On a new @TexasMonthly National Podcast Of Texas, I speak to author/professor @DainaRameyBerry about how understanding black women’s history adds to our larger understanding of American history and how their history shaped our democracy. texasmonthly.com/podcast/daina-…

Willie's son Micah on the late great Paul English's drumming: "It was deep. More there than meets the eye. Like my dads guitar playing. Nothing about it makes sense but it makes perfect sense. The void between chaos and order". The whole essay is terrific: twitter.com/jacmnelson3/st…

Lots of excitement on @TexasMonthly Slack re: @KaceyMusgraves new (and instantly sold-out) candle. Wanted to reply with this similar Texas music news nugget and suggest someone do a consumer guide w/ grades, but didn’t. Twitter seems like a safer place. rollingstone.com/music/music-ne…

Terrific profile. Austin bonus: an anecdote re: Stevie Ray Vaughan opening the Sports tour. (The fans weren’t ready for it: “He’d be burning it down, and the crowd would go, ‘Huuuey, Huuuey.’ It was the weirdest feeling, hating your audience.”)”esquire.com/entertainment/…

Riverside & Congress (old La Bare). Last few @rollingstones tours were teased with billboards and murals in cities soon-to-be-announced. Or maybe we’re getting trolled? Last show here was Zilker 2006 #RollingStones https://t.co/eqj4Wy91Gb
Real Q: Which team has more players likely to protest the White House visit, or at minimum no-show by citing “prior commitments”? That’ll be my team.
On @JasonIsbell’s birthday, a full 2016 @ACL_RADIO Dell Music Lounge performance w/ four songs and a back-and-forth unintentional comedy bit at the end where I’m schooled hard on the pronunciation of Isbell (“Like nipp-ul,” he says). youtu.be/c-b7zoscolE

This week’s show features a pair of Dallas’ Real Housewives on reality television vs. actual reality. Plus, I ask (uncomfortably) if being on reality television offers any extra insight into how POTUS operates? twitter.com/texasmonthly/s…
The community of Austin singer-songwriters that called Chicago House home was incredible, but so were both early shows from Jeff Buckley, one of which @toddv has a photo from here: toddvwolfson.tumblr.com/post/131079618… twitter.com/austinchronicl…

That he loves matzah brei enough to assist other diners in making the right choice is the hands-down best piece of Hollywood gossip I’ve picked up in 30 years of coming and going to LA a few times a year.

I’m at @cantersdeli in Los Angeles and asked server about the popularity of jam vs. sour cream vs. apple sauce on matzah brei. She says that @IanZiering often holds impromptu garnishing lessons for tables nearby. He’s apparently a super-passionate advocate for sour cream and salt

The pop-up offer I just received for “Holiday Sale” pricing on an Angry Birds in-app purchase is only slightly less tacky and tone-deaf than that FBI tweet.
Just shared video of Andy Roddick & @BrooklynDecker smelling Paltrow’s vagina candles to the official in-house @TexasMonthly Slack channel. I'll likely never know how many of my colleagues saw it before me, also considered sharing it, but displayed better judgement and didn't.

A lot of unbelievably great parts of last night’s Bumpin’ Mics w/ @realjeffreyross and Dave Attel at @ParamountAustin, but best of all, the guitar setup onstage went entirely unplayed. @SteveMartinToGo aside, nothing good comes from comedians and stringed instruments. https://t.co/8iwNm4f6TY

Lost to twitter is that this tweet was not supposed to be a fact-checkable assertion, but just a take on the Bernie/Warren situation (that fell flat and got lost in transition).

@Andylanger interviews Gibby Haynes of @buttholesurfers: yes please, must read immediately texasmonthly.com/the-culture/gi…
 
Thanks. FWIW, the book tour has Texas stops...I'd pay money to watch him on Overheard and 2x that to see it happen in person
Roky Erickson and Daniel Johnston are gone. But Gibby Haynes’ freak flag still flies high. His debut YA novel, out today, is about a dog, future tech, and $5K in MDMA. It’s somehow even trippier than this sprawling Q&A I filed today for @TexasMonthly: texasmonthly.com/the-culture/gi…
On January 1, @Marvel relaunched Thor with @Doncates at the helm. Cates lives in Austin and controls The God Of Thunder’s trajectory, so by the transitive property, Thor lives in Austin, TX. This + more on a new @TexasMonthly National Podcast of Texas.texasmonthly.com/podcast/donny-…
The folks at @CBSSunday dug up and aired an old piece of video of me for their profile this morning of @GaryClarkJr. It’s from 2001 on the News 8 Rooftop. My intro is terrible: we were taping 10 performances a day but it’s a fun time capsule anyway: m.youtube.com/watch?fbclid=I…

When I was 15, I worked at a baseball card shop and on paydays converted that money into import (hair metal) CDs. Bill’s was the only place to find em’. He was also a tireless champion of Dallas music: I remember buying Ten Hands, New Bohemians and Lord Tracey records there too twitter.com/robertwilonsky…
I’ve seen em’ separately but super-excited to see them together Thursday night at @ParamountAustin... twitter.com/realjeffreyros…
Re: Charlie Jones’ departure from C3, I did a 2002 Jones profile for @AustinChronicle ahead of the first-ever @aclfestival .

Woah. This has serious potential. Apologies to the actual @thetexanist, but I hope somebody is already on the line with @LyleLovett’s agent to cast him as the lead. twitter.com/brian_standefe…
On the show’s original run, @ajjacobs asked if I’d be on-call as one of his lifelines (for music trivia). Terrified of letting down the “smartest person in the world,” I fibbed about not being able to miss a radio shift to wait by the phone. It was the smart move for both of us. twitter.com/vulture/status…
In Austin, the professional line-waiting economy was driven by BBQ (until Franklin outlawed it in ‘15). In New York, it’s driven by courtrooms and the media elite. And we wonder why 150 people move here a day? texasmonthly.com/the-daily-post… twitter.com/grahamkates/st…
