Twitter Thursday

#TwitterThursday featuring @do2w and @the_ironsheik

This week has been full of craziness.  We had a seasonally appropriate dressed monkey shopping at Ikea, Paul McCartney is a stand in for Kurt Cobain and everyone went crazy over 12/12/12.

Additionally, everyone is most likely inundating you with end of the year lists.  Don’t worry, we here at SceneSC will also be doing that for you.  Let’s face it, our opinion is the only one that matters to you, so any best of lists created herein will be the be-all, end-all.  If you want to know my personal Best of 2012 list, you can send me a self-addressed stamped envelope and I will mail you a transcript.   If you want to know what I am doing tonight, I’ll tell you that now.


I’m a big, big fan of @do2w.  Once upon a time, they opened for a little band named Manchester Orchestra and Trae yelled to me from a merch tent to buy their cd.  When a man with a beard holla, hollas at me, I don’t not respond.  I bought the CD and have been a frequenter of shows ever since.  Consider me your proxy beardo hollering out right now and telling you to check out Death on Two Wheels.  For starters they are fiscally conservative:

Also, I am not sure if that’s Sure, BS Apple Maps or if autocorrect had a stroke on that tweet, but either way something is off.  I think Apple has some sort of maps/spelling conspiracy to bring down the Death.  Don’t worry, I’m on your team.  We’ll beat this technological foe together @do2w!

The guys in @do2w may sound like they’d be inclined to bring the pain, but they brought the cute to twitter this week:


Tour cats?!?  I feel like if this was also on Tumblr that it probably got a bajillion reblogs and notes and that every teenage girl in America now has a Tumblr crush on @do2w.  If those things didn’t happen, then maybe the end of the world is near.  I can’t imagine a interweb where that did not occur.  However, personally, I tweeted about a mini-horse this week and lost 3 followers, so maybe Ikea monkey is the only cool animal this week.  Regardless, catch @do2w on tour.   You won’t be sad and you might get to hug a kitty.

What you may not know about me is that I am a huge wrestling fan.  I could tell you some wrestling stories that would make you giggle for days.  Or maybe only for five minutes.  I am not good at telling time.  What will keep you in giggs is following @the_ironsheik on Twitter:

I feel like the ‘forever’ at the end of that tweet was a game changer.  There’s insults and then there are insults with infinite time frames…well played Sheik.

North Korea should be exempt from celebrating non-holidays.  Also, raisin balls is another game changer.  I can’t wait for someone to make me mad so I can use this.

I don’t know why I was surprised at the genius of this tweet, especially after the raisin balls comment, but I was.  This is so poetic and true.  Jason Kidd is not a kid, he is totally the man.  The Sheik nailed it again.  Please follow him on Twitter for a stream of tweets that will keep you laughing and humbled.

New people join twitter every day.  Some have Twitter but just randomly start using it–side eyeing you @Pontifex.  In order to keep up with all the changes, we need you to let us know which accounts tickle your pickle.  Send your suggestions to @SceneSC with the hashtag #twitterthursday.  Or you can always send me another SASE.  I am sure either is just as efficient as the other.
