The Week in Tweets

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been light on the long posts of late. Lots of reasons, not least that I’m enjoying sharing short sharp posts via Twitter (which you can also access on the right-hand side bar). Here’s my past week’s worth, from newest to oldest.

My iJamming! Featured Album review: “Civilized” by #Stellastarr* –

Just set up an amazon author page and am impressed. Visit your local bookstore first! Then go here…

My forthcoming book, All Hopped Up and Ready To Go: Music from the Streets of New York 1927-77, got v. positive review in Publishers Weekly.

Totally in love with new F*** Buttons track, “Surf Solar.” AND it’s only a 3-minute teaser for the 10 minute version.

The advice works! Three full days without #running after the Escarpment Ultra, and I felt like a gazelle this morning. (A slow gazelle.)

Glad I decided to give my legs a rest after Sunday’s Escarpment Run and stay home from tonight’s Cross COuntry, because it’s STILL raining..

RT @allsongs Best of the Year (so far) show is finally online. … and not a British act in the top 10

Raining so hard in the Catskills I can’t see out the window!

Who would be in your (living) punk supergroup? Mick Jones? Steve Diggle? Glen Matlock? Then you’d better watch this.

This is the fanzine I’d start if I started another fanzine. Welcome the Rhone Report:

Coincidence no. 1: In honor of our footie-mad Spanish student, I decide to wear my England shirt yesterday…. So does he.

@bradwiggins says “I was dazed,confused and hung over when asked questions about what I’ll be doing in the next 3 years…” Love it!

Latest wildlife observation: a decapitated rabbit on the outdoor deck. A very proud cat licking his lips nearby.

It got hot today. Felt the need for a lunchtime siesta. Took a dip in the creek with Noel instead. He made me laugh. It felt cool.

Took our Spanish student tubing on the Esopus yesterday. I came back with way more cuts, bruises and scrapes than from the Escarpment Run.

Active twitterer @lancearmstrong is flaming the non-tweeting @acontador for his post-race comments today. Who said Twitter is boring? #tdf
9:52 PM Jul 27th from web

Typical Tony: Discover @bradwiggins the day after the #tdf concludes. Rumors are true: he’s a mod through and through.
4:18 PM Jul 27th from web

Another sign of the endless march through life: We’re hosting our first foreign student.
9:58 AM Jul 27th from web

That does not get any easier with age – especially when almost the entire course is covered with mud! #running

Escarpment Run here I come… (and please let us not run inside a thunderstorm again this year) #running
5:22 AM Jul 26th from web

Thanks to #tdf, now even more psyched for tomorrow’s Escarpment Run. Can’t be harder than climbing Mont Vertoux. (Um, but it is.) #running
10:01 AM Jul 25th from web

How did I ever live without being addicted to the #Tdf? The good news (I guess) is that I only got addicted during the final week…

    I still refuse to sign up for anything twittery, but it’s nice that you finally caught up with le best Tour in years (i.e. the result, so far, hasn’t been challenged). Of course the Belgian-born Cockney mod is the true winner, being the highest placed rider not either lightly implicated in drug scandals (Contador, Schleck) or caught bang to rights (Pharmstrong, whose 1999 samples were eventually discovered to be packed with EPO, by researchers working on a new test method years later- sadly the tour authorities didn’t introduce any EPO checks until 2000).
