And if you haven’t seen it: Prince, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne and others perform While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

WHERE DOES THE GUITAR GO. That’s the power of Prince.

Context: I’m watching Metallica’s 1994 concert from Mountain View, CA.

The number of ridiculously heavy riffs that Metallica managed to write between 1980 and 1992 is unfair. No one should be able to do that.

Creeping Death is still so fucking heavy. 🤘🤘

And that wasn’t even what Prince was know for! It was just one facet of his personality. But man, he was amazing.

Not knocking Kirk or anyone else. It’s just that Prince was stiff competition.

I’ve seen so many amazing guitarists during my lifetime, and the thing I keep coming back to: Prince kicked all their asses.

Kirk Hammett is amazing.

Prince was better.

Metallica was so much better when they were political.

Another shot from this morning’s walk.

People need to be able to stay home without worrying about bills or whether they’ll be employed in the not too distant future. Small businesses need to survive. The US government could help, but they won’t, and it’s fucking maddening.

You know what would help parents stay home and take care of their kids until the pandemic is over? Temporary universal basic income. Or cover the payrolls of affected businesses so they can shut down for the duration. High-level solutions.

Went on a walk this morning. Lighting was great.

Reminder: the Lincoln Project is making some fantastic ads, but they’re a Republican organization. If you give them money, and you’re not a Republican, that money will ultimately be used against you. They are not your friend.

HBO Max works with my VPN on, which is more than I can say for Amazon and Netflix.

At this point, I’m somewhat mad that the iPhone hasn’t switched to USB-C yet.

Finally ™ started watching Black Mirror. I dig it! 📺

One advantage of staying at home all the time: no driving means never getting tailgated!

BREONNA TAYLOR. Say her name.

GEORGE FLOYD. Say his name.

America is the apex predator of colonialism.

Replace the faces on Mount Rushmore with the faces of winners of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Someone photoshop this. Please.

If you routinely post threads of 5+ tweets, I humbly suggest you GET A FUCKING BLOG.

So Tired by Nine Inch Nails…

“Were there any croutons?”

“Not that I could ascertain.”

I grew up in rural Texas. I went through Texas history (multiple times) and American history. I took two US history courses in college. I never learned about what happened in Tulsa in 1921. Disgraceful.

I have questions for anyone who still thinks Trump would be better than Clinton right now.

Help! Someone recommend a movie that came out in the last two years that was both dumb and fun.

I will never tire of watching confederate monuments being taken down. Never.
