The Best of the Week in Twitter – 05/19/2010

Well, it's funny to me at least.

Chris Ryall (@chris_ryall) Just happened upon a hipster open-air farmer's market, where somehow one out of every three guys there looked just like Chuck Klosterman.

"I'll go… I'll go… I'll go… to the proctologist.

Chris Eliopoulos (@eliopoulos) Man. I miss John Hughes movies. I need a mid-life Hughes movie. A mid-life Hughes movie

You can't fight City Hall.

Dennis Calero (@DennisCaleroThere's no question we will eventually go to completely paperless media And self driving cars. No one can stop it

Dennis Calero (@DennisCaleroIf you sell water In the Desert and it starts to rain, sell umbrellas

Dennis Calero (@DennisCalero) People that are afraid of an industry shift are either not ready or don't want to get ready

Well… yeah. Actually, try 10 years.

Erik Larsen (@ErikJLarsen) 20 years from now I'd expect to see a lot fewer comic books in print, a lot more digital only, fewer stores and and more trades

What a normal post…

Tony Harris (@TONYFINGHARRIS) Just got the Idea for the LAST Machina Hardcover.Spooky cover. Very……still. Like there was no air in the room.

Nobody tell Gary Frank about this.

Erik Larsen (@ErikJLarsen) It just seems that some artists are adding things now that make superheroes look worse–like pupils in Batman and seams in costumes

Just help me get this couch in the van.

Tow Fowler (@tomfowlerbug) commission client just used the phrase "off the chains in my man cave" in an email. ima scared…

The true cost of free content.

Nikki Cook (@nikkicook) seriously hulu, i don't want to watch any more vag cancer commercials.

And now a real life crime saga.

James Robinson (@JamesDRobinson) Wow. Crazy. Guy with knife tried to mug me while I walked Rex. Luckily I was on Clay where the trees have big pebble rocks around them —

James Robinson (@JamesDRobinson) — And luckily Rex had taken a shit at said pebble rocks which in the course of picking up his shit I picked up a goodly amount at the —

James Robinson (@JamesDRobinson) — same time. Hence (stupidly I admit, should have played safe) I hit mugger in face with bag of rocks and dog shit. He ran off. I'm fine.

This just means I'm gonna gonna be able to pronounce an artist's name in a year.

CB Cebulski (@CBCebulski) Packing for Croatia. Off to yet another country where I have no idea what to expect. Told to bring shorts & flip-flops which is a good sign.

In case you weren't paying attention, it's "twice" that makes it funny.

Mike Norton (@themikenorton) Moe's stupidity has been validated. He just ran into a mirror. Twice.

You don't get it… he was THERE!

Tim Seeley (@HackinTimSeeley) I was gonna describe a dream I had about Chris Hardwick teaching a karate class, but I was disrupted by a pug walking into a mirror, twice.

Someone out there really enjoys this tweet.

Gail Simone (@GailSimone) Ew. There's something in this issue of Secret Six that's grosser than bottomless Ragdoll. Yay?

Pretty much all his tweets are like this.


See? I KNEW it!

Ron Marz (@ronmarz) Sometimes it's unavoidable. Things happen. But my impression is that artist switcheroos are more frequent than they have been.

There's a time and a place. Well, maybe not actually.

Brian Clevinger (@bclevinger) Laptop monitor filled with Nazi imagery in full view of public is NOT MINE for a change.

Leave the cannoli

Eric Powell (@goonguy) Goon fans, some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do a service for me.

Premium Star Wars Lego sets are both curse and blessing.

John Layman (@themightylayman) Oh, Lego Death Star! Why must you be on back order?!?!


  1. So James Robinson is a superhero… who uses poop as a weapon.  Where’s Mark Millar when you need him?  This is right up his alley.

  2. James Robinson is my hero.

  3. Bryan Lee O’Malley is friggin hilarious.

  4. Sidenote: One thing I’ll remember about Twitter years from now is that it helped me justify thinking certain people’s ideas are stupid.

  5. @Sunday:

    The point of open-mindedness is not to acceptall ideas as valid. An open-minded person judges ideas on their objective merits. So, you don’t have to justify for your opinions on certain ideas that are objectively stupid. 🙂

  6. @Josh Quick tip on the pronounciation of Serbo-Croatian last names: The "-ic" at  the end of (ALL) last names is pronounced "-itch", not "-ick"
