Retweeted by Rick DeVos@james_ka_smith I think the GhostHateFollows are the most sincere. Yearning to express disapproval and hatred, so unwilling to admit it.Another fun little interview with the great @joeyruiter http://t.co/kwrVM0akIKWe asked @JoeyRuiter for a list of 5 or 10 things he likes right now. Here are 3 of 7. http://t.co/0bFoXawWU6 http://t.co/M0hF79Hi3G
Retweeted by Rick DeVosThe HateFollows (& HateGhostFollows) are often the most amusing. It's fun fun fun to unintentionally live so deeply in a stranger's brain.It is a source of continuous amusement to think that there are people interested in or hating the things I have to say on Twitter.The bus-trolley things are kinda open-air...I think an open-air bus/lounge that slowly cruised around town w/ cocktails could be a thing.Maybe Trump-Sanders, and not Bush-Clinton, is the election America deserves.
