“When you can hear them, you know where they're at.” —Dr. Dre's mom, about having kids who are musicians (My mom used to say the EXACT same thing)
15 minutes into THE DEFIANT ONES, Dr. Dre is praising his his mom (who had him at 16) and talking about how much he loves Kraftwerk
Throwing around “hobbyist” and “amateur” as pejorative terms is such a lame, macho thing to do. God forbid we do anything for pleasure and love.

And now, on top of all that, we get @KinokuniyaUSA? Dang, y'all. twitter.com/KinokuniyaUSA/…
Then you have the more niche joints like @MalvernBooksTX (great poetry, small press, and NYRB collection), @bookwomanaustin, and @MonkeyWrenchATX. And the comics shops: @AustinBooks, @DLairAustin, and @tribecag. Pretty darned great. 📚 🌵
Then you have the used stores. The @halfpricebooks, which have been around forever, and have slipped a bit on bargains, but still have some to be had. @SocoBooks on Congress. And Balcones Books, which I’d never even heard of until today: balconesbooks.com
OK, let’s talk for a minute about what a rad book town Austin, TX has become. First off, the new Central @AustinPublicLib is ridiculous. And @BookPeople is the greatest. And you have the @ransomcenter and @MichenerCenter at UT.

We're up early every day, so I turned on the Royal Wedding. 5-year-old’s commentary is no more inane or less entertaining than the TV anchors “Those horses look like robot donkeys!” “Meghan?!? That's your name!” “I hope they're recording this!”

Correction: Iggy Pop is currently the same age as the president but he's really about a year younger whatever (I've had too much whiskey good night)
Sometimes I like to look up people who are the same age as the president and think of how much you can actually do with your life. For example, Iggy Pop is only a few months younger than the president. https://t.co/ll0xKrtJeM
