Pretty psyched to head in and buy some LPs today! Is all the good stuff gone? #RecordStoreDay2014 @efetusmpls@wits @winnerbowzer I feel like Bobcat was into the rubdown with Janey and them I showed up and spoiled it. I might have felt the same....So happy to have @BillCorbett back on @wits tonight! Could @kwmurphy be far behind?Vinyl sales are up 600% since 2007. @recordstoreday must be doing something right.

Great game but would have loved different outcome.Trying to teach my daughter that professional sports losing is our great tradition here in MN and makes us strong. #notbuyingitTwo Wild players on their backs in front of the net.... What could possibly go wrong?Bobcat Goldthwait was one of my favorite guests on @wits in his previous appearance. Funny and weird. It'll be fun Friday.night.

Retweeted by John Munson@KerriMPR @stephcurtis @DearDara I'm thinking sea cucumbers, chou dofu, birds nest soup and regional specialties. All infused with booze.@KerriMPR @stephcurtis we need to plan a trip to China. We will make it a trip about eating weird food. @DearDara will also come. #yesLA is a balm to our weather worn spirits. I anticipate a rocking @wits tomorrow! And then... Back to the blizzards.

If you want it to be.@PSusmilch @wits @kristenschaaled @weareTYPHOON @johnmoe with this weather you have your work cut out for you. Sadness abounds. Teary MN.@lowtheband @solace Little known fact: Hendrix played an SG from time to time. Which because of double cut away makes total sense. Hendrix?@larissaluu @coreyschreppel Because Elevator Music.@larissaluu @coreyschreppel We could call the record -- The Witnesses: Going Down@lowtheband Angus Young's?@coreyschreppel @wits Yes! Contact the authorities. I was thinking of calling it "ambient music" but let's call it for what it is.@wits @DangerManley I am going to make some recordings available down the line... probably through some dedicated witnesses site...Come to @wits tonight at 8!

“@mspmagarts: Is http://t.co/CGZiQo4Fxj the Space Jam of band websites?” it would appear so. Fan love is hard to manage. Thanks Kara!I shouldn't be surprised that Edina has a dedicated yoga pants store called Yoga Pants Alone. You should be sure visit! 50th & FranceIt's times like this where one doesn't necessarily like being known for singing a song about snow. #snowdaysbegone
What a great year. Tough loss though... #GWH Clarkson played a great game. Ultimately good for women's hockey. But... Sad.NCAA Women's Hockey National Championship game live stream on (it's hard to find, so here is link) http://t.co/4ojwrnQOGJ
Retweeted by John MunsonFun fact about NCAA Womens HOCKEY champ game today: Clarkson entirely Canadian except for two MN players! Could this be REDEMPTION?! #GWHIt would be great to see @kstc45 or someone step up to the plate and provide a television broadcast with real announcers. #GWHGreat go see Gopher Women's Hockey above the fold in today's paper. Way to go @StarTribune and @JoeCStrib give the girls their due #GWH
@bobsansevere @MNWomensHockey Where can I watch it besides a computer? TV Broadcast for our champs. Color TV too. Not b&w #GWH@MNWomensHockey will Championship Game be broadcast anywhere in our 1000 channel wonderland? C'mon @NCAA c'mon somebody! TV the game!!

I stand corrected.@pnkrkgrrl are you quite certain about that Mand?Gopher Women v WI at 4:00 central.Streaming on http://t.co/A4ivXMErZD I hope or hockey daughters will be in furor.#GWH make it three ladies!@jvpeezy @dVRG @harrychalmiers You're keeping those clubs nice and warm there, I see.@mg_lasquadra Hmmm... that would have to be Adam Ant for style and XTC for music. I feel like Adam Ant grabbed his thing from Bow Wow Wow.@mg_lasquadra great article! In my case the hi fi was flat broke so I'm hearing music in the house = good! And vinyl still rules!@coreyschreppel eico hf 87 was the problem. And now the solution.Call me old fashioned but I love solid fundamentals when it comes to basketball. UW Milwaukee may lose but they cut and pass real niceStuck with it. I got my tube hi fi rejiggered and it is now producing the living room rumble that makes me smile. Vinyl still rules.
@DeRushaJ Please tell your bosses to turn off the basketball feed so we can watch some Gopher women's hockey Frozen Four Friday? #localangleC'mon local TV! Let's see our Gopher Women compete for a 3rd consecutive hockey championship this weekend!! First up: Wisconsin!! #GWH
@RippleEnt An early exit was nearly guaranteed. Let them have a good year next year... but yes... it is sad. Start following hockey!
Gopher ladies don't make me suffer. Put the biscuit in the basket a few more times in the 3rd! Currently 2-1 Gophers #GWHGopher women playing great against Boston U but game tied after 1 #GWH http://t.co/SFZYMUZlrOWatching US win sled hockey GOLD in a packed arena in Sochi. Unbelievable.
