RT @rhettmiller: Fun memory this morning. I agree with @conniebritton though. “If they’re so awesome why can’t they get a gig on a weekend?…
A must-listen. And I’m a little surprised this hasn’t already gotten a thumbs up/seal of approval from @MrChuckD billboard.com/articles/news/…
RT @BrooklynBased: Fed up with Brooklyn? Maybe #Austin is your next move. 5 NYC transplants shared their take on life in the home of #SXSW…
RT @EmoPhilips: This seems to me a very slow way to pull up stakes. https://t.co/sKLcKqqbW9
My low-paying side hustle as Resident Realist means replying-all to entirely too many emails with “Just dropping in to temper expectations...”
The fact-check dept. at @TexasMonthly is robust and super-thorough. They’ve saved my ass (and no doubt countless others asses) on more than one occasion. twitter.com/erinbiba/statu…
Because 4/20, I rehash for you my 2007 @esquire piece: What It Feels Like To Get High With Snoop and Willie: esquire.com/lifestyle/a912… @SnoopDogg @WillieNelson
Just posted: the new edition of @texasmonthly’s National Podcast of Texas, where I talk with @lawrence_wright about what’s essentially his State Of The State, God Save Texas... soundcloud.com/texasmonthly/n…
Ol’ fashioned power broker @evanasmith has gotten me more jobs than anyone in town. You can probably say the same, so consider honoring his birthday today with a @TexasTribune membership? support.texastribune.org #smithy https://t.co/eZBR9yLxKp
I have never been screwed over so badly by a story embargo than today. Absolutely furious.
 
Name names. Public payback always feel good, but I’m petty that way.
This video from last night of the Foo Fighters pulling up "Kiss guy" (Austin guitarist Yayo Sanchez) is bonkers. Absolute grace under pressure. youtu.be/uc0XglKmnLQ via @YouTube
This new @brothersosborne tune immediately takes its place alongside Bruce Robison’s “What Would Willie Do?” in the upper 3% of the Songs Referencing @WillieNelson Canon: youtu.be/vHj5dA0T0tU
I verified three different ways that this is real, but still kinda don’t believe it: https://t.co/LXgusgMCHc
The Allegiant Air story from this weekend's 60 Minutes seems even more terrifying today: cbsnews.com/news/allegiant…
This essay from Harry Anderson’s longtime partner in comedy/magic, @turkpipkin, beautifully depicts not just their enduring friendship, but also the Austin of a certain era. austinchronicle.com/features/1999-…
Save these dates for @KGSR Blues On The Green: https://t.co/Xyy01pA7JK
A tune written by a trio of Texans- @JackIngram @jonrandallmusic and @mirandalambert- super-deservedly won #ACMawards Song Of The Year tonight. Its much better written than this tweet (is “super-deservedly” even a thing?). This is Jack’s version: youtu.be/bdnF-IxK2Pg
This is the worker parking lot of @ArtAllianceATX Art City Austin but should be on display on main grounds: https://t.co/XwE5ExWxh5

RT @EW: Friday Night Lights is now streaming on Amazon Prime share.ew.com/1v3jMya
For @EmergeLV , I'll be doing a Q&A with @JenaFriedman Friday afternoon. Saturday, I moderate a panel featuring Christian rock legend, Dan Haseltine of Jars Of Clay. Only one of the two has an album titled "American C*unt". I'll try not to confuse them. twitter.com/JenaFriedman/s…
Since the discussion is about accuracy: @fox47madison got to bail b/c news is under an agreement with a different ownership group- Sinclair owns FOX Madison signal, but does not produce its news. Also accurate: @cbsaustin fell in line and aired the propaganda as instructed.
Just 30 minutes from now, Jared Leto officially puts the final nail in the coffin for the I LOVE YOU SO MUCH mural. twitter.com/30SECONDSTOMAR…
@seanpenn was a delightful guest on @overheardpbs. No, he didn’t punch me when I asked about Fast Times. Yes, he smoked. Show will air soon; check local listings. https://t.co/XmsbFLDCGW
 
do we know who was last ACL artist to smoke onstage in 6A?
GM/News director at @cbsaustin have to be filled with regret they didn’t know this was an option. Or they’re just stooges who willingly followed credibility-killing orders from suits with the job titles they aspire to have next. twitter.com/fox47madison/s…

Posted this Seder pic the other night to Instagram. Props to the those- intentional and otherwise- who used it as a platform for small plate food comedy. https://t.co/KFVPZvq4EJ
Indeed, @cbsaustin anchors cut one of these hostage videos too. I get that jobs, insurance etc are hard to walk away from, but video is forever and reputation is everything. This will haunt all involved parties. twitter.com/bubbaprog/stat…
Greatest ever. And a superb opening line: “The secret cannot be kept much longer.” si.com/mlb/2014/10/15…
Interesting Austin-related piece of the NYT report on Ticketmaster/Live Nation: nytimes.com/2018/04/01/art… https://t.co/jbiccYcMD5
Do we know if Austin’s @keyetv participated? Anyone got the video? twitter.com/deadspin/statu…
In the days ahead, this chart will be used to bolster so many disparate/conflicting claims, supporting streaming and anti-streaming agendas #blindmanandtheelpehant twitter.com/alftirado/stat…

John Burnett is so much better than shitty hot takes like this. So is Ray Benson, who I’m gonna assume said something more nuanced than what made the piece. twitter.com/npr/status/977…
Austin rideshare driver this AM: drivers make more $ per ride w/ Ride Austin, which we knew, but Uber/Lyft do driver-promotions based on hrs/# of rides that makes it more lucrative to turn Ride service off at peak times to hit uber/Lyft bonus goals
He thinks for Ride to survive they’re gonna have to delve deeper into the driver bonus game. Makes sense to me, especially because uber/Lyft already have massive airport pickup brand-recognition advantage
A terrific super-Texas @Danny_Clinch portrait from last week’s Love Rocks NYC Benefit: https://t.co/7tTlBluLb0

Hey @JillCacic and @RRExpress - this is cool, but will you guys be making hats at some point too? https://t.co/XnNgETNg0U

Remember when @SPIN was relevant? Remember when they were more than just run-of-the-mill web monkeys trying to sensationally tie serious news to something unrelated wholly for clicks? (h/t @txmusicoffice) twitter.com/SPIN/status/97…
At this point, not showing up would’ve been the most Bill Murray thing he could’ve done. Also, the most #sxsw 2018

It’s easy to poke fun at corporate #SXSW activations but @SpikeLee at #CapitalOneHouse this morning was no joke. The audience: 300 black college students who got a master class on film, preparedness, the state of technology, and public education. https://t.co/PXUKOnkOVy

Think Netflix might want to pick up the worldwide rights for my short #sxsw documentary series titled The Man Who Grimaces In Your Cheerful Instagram Photo Activation? https://t.co/7GtMJWE1pK
Good moderators are there to keep the conversation interesting for the audience, not to try and impress the audience, or worse still, the panel.
#sxsw reminder: if you’re the moderator of a panel, you’re not actually a panelist. You’re the inquisitor/referee. Your job is to build a narrative arc via questions and move it along. No monologues from you. Your ideas don’t matter.
I’ve been working on the #FoxSportsHouse since September and it is THE BEST. Massive thanks to @SoccerMarketer for bringing me on the team. #SXSW https://t.co/kltQE4Qqxc

I’m really over those inflatable dinosaur suits.
 
Maybe if you’re seeing them often enough to be annoyed (more than once?), it’s time to reconsider the places you hang out?
