There are things that I say that I want to remember later, and Twitter is good for that. The trouble is that for me to get those couple gems, there’s mountains of slag left over. So, I don’t cross post my twitter posts to the bankrupt artist automatically – too many and too much out of context.
Today, I’m pulling some of my recent history out of my twitter stream manually, and maybe editing them a bit for readability where required; adding spaces and vowels and context. I copied them out in reverse order, with the newest at the top. I wasn’t really thinking that through, and the work to reverse the order isn’t worth it, so understand that you’re going backwards in time if you read top-down.
