Holy shit, the lyrics to “We Didn’t Start the Fire” are a markov chain.
Everybody’s a person. RT @kissane
I feel like I should just replace all my tweets with “HEY. OTHER PEOPLE ARE REAL.”
All these months later, and still obsessed with this MBV song. youtu.be/VpoOjoiYcWY
Took some time to jot down a few lessons I’ve learned on how to give a lecture: frankchimero.com/blog/2013/11/s…
Pleased with and thankful for the warm reception to “What Screens Want.” Almost two years worth of ideas in there. Thank you all.

I hope the big take-away from my essay is that you should watch Connections. It’s all online for free: youtube.com/playlist?list=…
I took my @buildconf
talk on screens and abstractions, and turned it into a tall, fluxy essay for your enjoyment: frankchimero.com/what-screens-w…
So Buzzfeed is now just reproducing people’s Twitter timelines? buzzfeed.com/regajha/this-g…

Woke up early on my own. Wrote a bit. Listening to this: youtube.com/watch?v=cGhwO8…
A nice morning. Hello, Europe.
Two weeks away. Missed you, NY. So glad to be back.
The legendary Italian translator William Weaver has passed away. Worth re-reading his stellar @parisreview
I wish DFW was around to write a review of the Morrissey autobiography. This thing is totally unbearable and I love it.
I just realized this venue should be called The Babysitters Club.
Big plan: open a music venue and the bands you like will play and you can sit down and we start on time and no phones, god damn it.
I'm gonna name that goose Vinny.
Christ, what an asshole. RT @jbenton

Rest in peace, sweet @buildconf
. You were good to us, and will be missed. youtu.be/int-EN0LDTw
We made it through a #buildconf
without a single Marshall McLuhan reference. Good job, everyone!
All this talk of attempted acquisitions and billions of dollars makes me feel like I don’t know what value is anymore.
A small preview of my @buildconf
talk tomorrow. cl.ly/image/3O280B3B…
That tweet was really to see which of my followers were Canadian. Sorry.
Between poutine and all-dressed potato chips, Canada has really figured out the potato.
All you’d probably need is Once in a Lifetime and Naive Melody.
Has anyone created a life philosophy based on Talking Heads lyrics? “Time isn’t holding us. Time isn’t after us. Same as it ever was...”
Early adopters are also the first to feel the side-effects.
You're a ghost driving a meat coated skeleton made from stardust, what do you have to be scared of?
Meaning: one of the weird, reflexive things about technology is that we begin to believe something is important bc we’re able to do it.
To-do lists help some, but I like not having one. Makes it easy to forget unimportant stuff. Forgetting your own dumb shit rules.
Also: just had a tweet faved by @NYTFridge
, the fridge at our beloved grey lady. See what I mean? This is real life!
You showed up to be stupid and narcissistic, then made a bunch of great friends. What the hell is THAT magic trick?
It’s weird to watch Twitter change—like you’re at a house party, met a ton of lifelong friends, then the dynamic changed so you have to bail
Just watched a couple that met on Twitter get engaged on Twitter. So nyah nyah to anyone who says screen life isn’t real life. It’s all IRL.

Look. Think. Draw. Think. Write. Look. Look. Draw. Think. Look. Look. Think. Draw. Think. Write. Think. Look. Look. Look.
On my way to Belfast. See you soon, @buildconf
. I have prepared artisanal slides.
What if Banksy is a woman? Maybe Banksy is Burial. Or God. We are all Banksy.

Clubland is an under-appreciated Elvis Costello song.
