Aggregate Twitterage

  • 12:25 @StatonElisabet I'm sure you can. You can definitely have a godless Hannukkah song. #
  • 12:26 @mlindenuk getting a signed book shouldn't be hard - DreamHaven Books in Minneapolis have them. Personalised is harder. #
  • 12:28 @StatonElisabet it's always better to watch or read the thing referred to before arguing about it. Makes you look smarter. #
  • 12:30 @StatonElisabet I'm not sure that it does, any more than Los Angeles is about Angels or San Francisco puts Saint Frances in it. #
  • 12:32 @hibeatles looks my blog in Chinese, yes. #
  • 12:38 @StatonElisabet and of course, there's Easter. Which has Eostre's name in it, along with her eggs and bunnies... #
  • 12:42 @rubblerat I mostly think of DIck as having written one huge book with peaks (like Ubik) and valleys in it. Neither genuis, crazy or stupid. #
  • 12:42 @TrishaBabbitt yeah -- I reread what I posted, and it looked like that... #
  • 12:55 @ThatKevinSmith That's like me! I saw Clerks, then bought the first Velvet Underground album! #
  • 13:00 RT Mitch Benn's Christmas mini album is now available for download exclusively at (previews at #
  • 13:04 @hollyherself I knew it! #
  • 13:16 @CleoCoyle nope. It's tea. #
  • 13:23 @katwantsyou and Easter is still the feast of Oestre? #
  • 13:28 @katwantsyou (and I'm not actually arguing with you, just teasing. But is very wise and moving.) #
  • 13:28 @KimBoekbinder I'm on there! #
  • 16:00 @olganunes that was why I put it up on my blog. We need to spread the word. #
  • 16:17 @StatonElisabet yes. And Easter? #
  • 16:19 @StatonElisabet yes, but Easter's name is in the festival. Shouldn't we think of he r? #
  • 16:21 @StatonElisabet well, no. The gift thing isn't about God. Nor are Xmas trees or ornaments or candy canes. Or turkey. Or Xmas pudding... #
  • 16:22 @StatonElisabet What I loved about @timminchin's song is that he's saying that even when it's not about god, it's about family & friends #
  • 16:24 @TrishaBabbitt not a happy ending for poor Eostre, though. She gets to name a festival and be forgotten about. #
  • 16:33 @StatonElisabet When we say something is wh at something else is about, we're right. When we say that's ALL something's about, we're wrong. #
  • 17:01 @StatonElisabet But her name is in the Festival. You said the Word puts god in Christmas. Shouldn't the word Easter put Easter in Easter? #
  • 17:02 @SaraJBenincasa Presents? I HAVE TO BUY PRESENTS??? Oh bugger. I knew I'd forgotten something. #
  • 17:17 @StatonElisabet it's hard to argue with athiests. If you don't believe in her, then you can't celebrate a real Easter. #
  • 17:23 But you don't believe in Easter. Yet you eat her chocolate eggs. How is that different from how many people feel about Christmas? #
  • 17:24 @StatonElisabet ..and honestly, I'm simply paraphrasing what you said about Christmas. For many people, it's not about a god. For you it is. #
  • 17:32 Sorry about that rather random tweet. It was from the middle of a fun argument/discussion @StatonElisabet & I were having about xmas/easter. #
  • 17:42 @LyndaLaPlante exactly... #
  • 17:42 @DC_Zol not at all. The joy of Twitter is the random. #
  • 17:43 @SaraJBenincasa you're welcome! #
  • 17:49 @simbenia it was, in WEDNESDAY COMICS. It'll be collected in May. #
  • 18:17 And because all conversations on Twitter are circular, I'll repost the godless@timminchin Xmas song that began it all: #
  • 18:19 @Monica_Goldust If I picked on anyone, I missed it. She had one opinion. Twittered me about it. We chatted. She changed her mind. #
  • 18:22 And now I'll do that again with a link to the beautiful @timminchin song YouTube video I meant to link to last time: #
  • 18:34 ...and again, from Last Year's Independent Xmas special, me talking about what Xmas trees meant to me as a boy: #
  • 18:35 @FoxyGrampa nope. I'm done for the year. #
  • 18:49 @tom3322 about 50/50 #
  • 19:18 @tom3322 which "new" Bond? There have been so many of them. #< /li>
  • 19:33 @tom3322 I don't think any Bonds, including Craig, resemble Fleming's. The film franchise reinvents itself. Not affected me as a writer. #
  • 20:07 @tom3322 of course, otherwise Bond only exists in the 8 years between 1952 and 1964, and becomes a museum piece. #
  • 20:27 @tom3322 the idea of Bond is Iconic; and some actors are Icons as Bond. But you have to make room for George Lazenby. And an Idol? Doubt it. #
  • 20:40 Wonderful portrait of David Tennant & his final year as The Doctor in the Guardian: #
  • 21:11 @jobiegirl6 sounds like a possible spoiler. "I, Wilfred... the man you called Gramps... am really ATIMELORDANDYOURDADANDALSOADALEKHAHA!" #
  • 21:15 @ruzkin reread what Davies says. I don't think it does. #
  • 21:37 @ruzkin The journalist says that, not RTD. We know the Master's coming back, but I took that as a general statement, not a specific one. #
  • 00:26 @Rivitgods This is the tenth time Doctor Who will never be the same, and it's always the same. I'm looking forward to eleven. #
  • 01:35 @ThatKevinSmith it's hard, when everyone else gets to be more Gaimanesque than me. Sigh. I shall go and sit emo-liciously in the corner. #
  • 01:46 @fvphoto Lauren! Actually, I think @thatkevinsmith invented emo-licious earlier today. #
  • 03:27 Too tired to keep working. So I shall bundle up in warm clothes and take the dog for a walk in the snow and then go to bed. Goodnight world. #
