not surprisingly, Facebook makes it non-obvious to remove “friends”.

BTW the quotation marks around “friends” are intentional, I don’t really buy into the FB newspeak in this regard

Big surprise, zero keepers from 2 evenings out shooting

Arcade Fire and the Linklater movie “A Scanner Darkly” - two things that go great together

Paul Simon’s “Hearts and Bones” is one of his best albums, in my humble opinion

Of course “Graceland” isn’t far behind #paulsimon

instead of #eurovision I’m watching Paul Krugman’s fav Arcade Fire clips from YouTube

well that sucked #Engelert #eurovision

Thanks Twitter for buckling under #eurovision load

That hair… #nightmarefuel #albania #esc

How did #Albania survive the semifinals?

That air guitar solo… please kill me now #esc

Leo: “will the Russian grannies be able to keep awake?” #esc

“Baku: City of Fine Cuisine…. and oil pollution”

it’s 01 AM in Baku now?

well 10 to 01

so apparently it’s “Garabach” and not “Nagorno-Karabach” - or are they separate?

Leo appreciates Ms Romania’s legs #esc

Viking: “oh it’s Denmark?! I’m not voting for this” #esc

The dude playing bass in the background is like “yeah w/e I just walked in and started playing” #denmark #esc

Poor Macedonia still has to put “F.Y.R.” in front of its name. Alexander the Great’s reach is long

Jedward? More like Squidward amirite?

Watersports. Really? #esc

I always forget Moldova’s technically a country. EBU membership fees must be pretty low.

that’s a lot of lasers #esc

Chicks with torches! violins! clapping! flames! If I were gonna drink I’d be dead by now #esc

OK we now know what the Azeri flag looks like. #esc

12 points to Serbia from Montenegro. SURPRISE AVERTED #ESC

WTF San Marino #esc

Wow the Greek 12 to Crete was unexpected… NOT #esc

and Moldova returns Romania’s 12

Still a bit positive that Croatia gives 12 to Serbia #esc

thank you ICELAND

Mr Lordi presents the Finnish votes #cringe #esc

First country not to give Sweden points, thanks for bucking the trend Italy #esc

Poor German presenter looks like she’s Carrie #esc

Sweden has won, move along, nothing to see here. See you next year Europe! #esc

Wow I could really use a beer after today. #work

Thanks, Internet, for making me feel self-conscious for liking Wes Anderson movies.

If there was a dimensional portal around here I’d beam over to CPH for beers with @jedrek, @tkjaer, and @dubcroster

Man, “Meat is Murder” is truly a dreary emo hymn. No wonder so many people love it #thesmiths

29 cases assigned to me, getting a bit excessive I think #work

I wonder, will Microsoft’s #So.cl be equally, more, or less boring than #Google+ ?

tweets for 2012-05-22

Facebook share price still slowly deflating like a social media soufflé too long in the oven #fb

This day is amazingly slow

I must sadly conclude that “The Wine-Dark Sea” is the last good Aubrey-Maturin novel.

Deleted the foursquare app. Not prepared to delete to account just yet though.

Maybe NASDAQ should be delisted?

Visst är “ultrarapid” en konstig term för något som ska vara långsamt? #fb

Big surprise, Macromedia Flash video hangs Chrome. Yahoo! page too, completing the fail trifecta.

Looks like hopefully Leo’s #Diablo3 issues are solved… fingers crossed

Nope, spoke too soon… still crashes hard

How did it take me so long to discover @baconmeteor? I fail the internet.

Some quick googling shows me that #WinSCP is the solution for us to snag files from a Linux host #work

I have only contempt for my younger self who didn’t appreciate The New Pornographers. The back of my hand to me!

Mildly perplexed by this ep of Desperate Housewives, trying hard not to get involved in thinking about it

tweets for 2012-05-14

Connecting to Armenia, listening to The New Pornographers #work

Att Pär Nuder avslöjar sig som amoralisk opportunist kan väl inte förvåna någon? #svpol

mind blown, @BretEastonEllis referencing a @billybrag song

I’m idly wondering whether my stepson has someone to queue with for #Diablo3 or if he’s auditioning for being #foreveralone

Monitoring my son’s homecoming from school by checking the Minecraft server logs

…and here he is!

At breakfast today: 4 people voted for Sweden joining the EUR in the ’94 ref, 4 people who said “wow we dodged a bullet” (including me)

``no copyright intended’’ – motto of our times!

If this epic “make” fails I will be sad :(

Fuck yeah The Soundtrack of Our Lives

is there a way to expand t.co URLs in @ttytter?

Happy that my customers in Ukraine and Armenia will enjoy a day off tomorrow #work

Thanks Twitter, I now know Maurice Sendak has passed. Please do not mention it any more. Thank you.

Trots mitt gnäll om svenska Twitter vore det coolt att få Superettan-resultat via Twitter. Någon?

Surprised there’s no relevant hits for “vehicles in William Gibson’s fiction”.

It’s a sad indictment for the idea of Scandinavism that it’s easier to communicate with Danes in English…

Shorter reactions to elections in #France and #Greece: it would be much easier to protect global finance without this pesky democracy

“Alla” med Twitterkonto i Sverige har kalsingarna i kors eftersom Reinfeldt kallat dom gnällspikar. Jag anser att han har rätt.

Ledsen politiktwittrare men ert intresse är ett särintresse bland andra

Politiker måste ta hänsyn till fler grupper än folk med Twitter.

You’d think with the Great Depression as a given that the Very Serious People in charge of the world wouldn’t make the same mistake again.

Neo-nazis in #Greece, savage repression of protests in #Russia, but it’s the “socialist” in #France that will get the press

Sorry for the twitspam but I’m pretty mad right now.

So far this Monday has lived up to the horrible expectations I had for it

Listening to the opening tracks from the albums by @kittythefool. Calms me down some

tweets for 2012-05-04

Well this hasn’t been a very productive week. Short, though #work

Once again the Austerians run up against that little pesky thing called Democracy.
