Missives: Assorted Tweets

Though I resisted the phenomenon of Twitter for years, I have recently come to embrace it for what it isUnited States, and find the service much more valuable than I had anticipated. I use it as a way to keep up with the world; it has become a sort of real-time news ticker, with journalists and individuals whose opinions and ideas I respect filling my feed with stories on a regular basis—the best of which I assemble here, at Roger’s Recommended Reading. I’ve also become a tweeter, or a twitterer, or a twat, or whatever you call it, and have assembled a few of these missives here.

Smoking cigarettes on a roof, thinking about how weird religion-themed memes are.

HEADING TO CHENGDU THIS WEEK. THINKING ABOUT PEACHES BLOSSOMING. ALSO THINKING ABOUT DICK CHENEY, AND HOW HE’S HAD TWO HEARTS. TWO OF ‘EM!

Thinking Deep Thoughtsâ„¢, talking to Ramses on the blower.

Eating Goldfishâ„¢ by the hand full at a 7Elevenâ„¢, Knox telling me to get it together. Sounds like he needs to get some Goldfishâ„¢ of his own.

Knox telling me he hates Goldfishâ„¢. I say: You’re an imperialist, a terrible interior decorator, and that hat is ass ugly; leave me alone.
— Roger (@rogerpresents) March 22, 2012

On the slow bus to #scenicningbo; another repercussive errand. I won’t make fun of Knox’s Ass-Ugly Hatâ„¢ again. Probably will, though.

Winds howling, raindrops, a soggy cigarette. Thinking of every girl in the world with sun-kissed shoulder blades.

Listening to Prince, getting weird.

Seen on Shanxi Nan Lu. Wandering on a smoggy, haze-obscured day
masquerading as a beautiful mistress; found good, kid. twitter.com/rogerpresents/…

Feeling like if it was up to me, I would have been born a black man with soul, heartbreak for days.

High-speed motorcycle-taxi chase in the light rain; moments from losing my hat, lunch.
— Roger (@rogerpresents) March 6, 2012

Kept my hat.
— Roger (@rogerpresents) March 6, 2012

Three things I’m out of: clean socks, Quaaludesâ„¢, patience.
— Roger (@rogerpresents) March 3, 2012

Found a bottle of Quaaludesâ„¢ in an old woman’s credenza. Feeling real loose, these days. Now if only I could find my pants.
