Retweeted by Fred BeukemaSometimes I just can't get over how superior Duck Duck Gray Duck is compared to Goose. It's awe-inspiring.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaThe Beukemix, 2014, 10. Jungle: Busy Earnin' http://t.co/v9W21l21SQ https://t.co/NC5jIkfUXS@MyLittleBloggie Seems objectionable if that is exclusively the case. Is there a sense that this is indeed typical? Ask Siri? and Jeeves?@lawremipsum Well of course, but would be a nice bulwark against continuing wave of innuendo and bs.Or for that matter, whether some of the gangs @JayKollsKSTP mentions are even really gangs? #pointergateIs there a TC media outfit set up to chase down any connections between pointing and these specific gangs? #pointergate@lawremipsum Dollars to donuts >1 of these "gangs" is just group of friends who hang out and self name, like my mom's "Ladies who Dine" grp.@dbrauer @lawremipsum @MyLittleBloggie - they're... they're going to win support & influence by attrition, aren't they? 2/2@dbrauer @lawremipsum @MyLittleBloggie -- Good lord, if KSTP keeps dragging this along and releasing trumped-up smears of Gordon & assoc 1/2@kellyoxford You should contact Koenig!
Jay had no motive except the motive to lie about seeing Hae with Adnan to keep himself from going to jail. Police could have led him to car.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaJay is told he needs a story or he will go down for the murder too, maybe told Adnan was framing him. He comes up with the multiple stories.
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaJay and Adnan both innocent. Police built case against Adnan, told Jay he'd go down for having car. They tell Jay Adnan did it. Jay believes

@heySMM @JessicaValenti @tanehisicoates I feel like, *mn*, you're arguing against an argument not being made. Maybe I misunderstand?@anildash (understanding that this is something a little different than *cultivating* a persona through one's work)@anildash This happened to me after one appearance on Jeopardy. http://t.co/tzEceE7X8t For you, bonus Prince reference.The Beukemix, 2014, 8.

The point isn't the solution; might not be one. Point is journey, obsession.@PaddyoNeilio I wonder when Martha's clattering pearls were introduced. They're so iconic now. Wish they'd do a similar list for the comics.Can't bring myself to watch any of these videos, but this takedown is pure, glorious, righteous bile: http://t.co/j0zX0Wnnlhwe almost crashed on our way home cause some idiot put eyes on this tree http://t.co/SbZDCgYvGE
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaAlso, native-born Minnesotans should be called Gray Ducks. "I am a Minnesotan but not a Gray Duck." See how we need this term?

I was wondering if that was somehow a clue.@AdamLevyGanesha backwards as you've written it, or flipped forward?

If Mark Penn or Lanny Davis is within 100 yards, all is lost.@AdamLevyGanesha I just found out that And The Professors is your group.

@lawremipsum In my alter ego as [beukema], I had insider information. We live not far from you; checked it out on way to a meeting.@lawremipsum Incidentally, speaking of garages, I finally saw your Katamari mural the other day. F-ing bad ass.@benfowlkesMMA Dude. Lot of Twitter clients put it in the tweet automatically. Blerg.@randy_cline @tanehisicoates Yeah, this. Sony has to keep making Spidey-related movies or the license reverts to the home office.
Set aside the racism in #pointergate & you're basically left with an allegation of "palling around with terrorists." http://t.co/XKpGcAztMa

@tanehisicoates Thank you for talking so much about Ragtime a few years back. Read it on your recommendation and loved it deeply.A politician seen w/someone who's held a gun & speaks poorly of law enforcement? Race is irrelevant! #pointergate http://t.co/B1jADxEcJO

MT @RockBand Just between us friends, we really miss announcing fun stuff for all of you every Friday morning.$43,138. Roughly 15% of the entire organization's total revenue, in 24 hours.

Retweeted by Fred Beukema@thatlevi It's really been a Serial failure. Taylorswiftkardashian. #zeitgeist.They're not an official law enforcement agency. They're just a specialty group that shoots the shit about gang stuff.

Don't know what the future holds for Navell Gordon beyond the fat check Stan Hubbard will end up writing him. #journalismgate
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaSo. Navell is not a saint; may go back to jail. But KSTP could find NO evidence "point" was locally gang used in any way. #Pointergate
Retweeted by Fred BeukemaSimply retelling the story but with more racism the second time around isn't news, @KSTP. #pointergate

My Twitter world is folding in on itself.@kumailn I’m just waiting for the Innocence Project to hit pay dirt.Gotta tell ya, media. We're covering every angle in this pointergate story except the one you just don't want to touch.

I felt my Minnesotanness being taken advantage of.@MyLittleBloggie I found them decent but expensive.@soniasaraiya I'd go with Parks & Rec (season two and up, specifically).@XFilesFiles Minor, silly question: were the actors actually playing VF2, or was that all recorded separately?The Beukemix, 2014, 3.

We are enjoying it as well, and I think it's getting better as it goes. Embarrassment of acting talent there.@CaseyMalone @soniasaraiya Also Skinny Pete, Badger, Combo, etc.@dbrauer Was kind of shocked at how progressive he sounded on systemic racism in interview over weekend. Very dissonant w/ gang signs talk.@lawremipsum He always seems bit more blinkered fr exps of trans/women/etc & suspicious of anything that looks like hate-crime legislation.@sullydish The true experiences of victims of harassment is in front of your nose; STRUGGLE MORE! (7/6, Dangit)@sullydish and consider what is being "policed" or "censored" (by private companies and those who patronize, mind). (6/6)@sullydish Please read Katherine Cross's collected tweets (https://t.co/YGNeSR1hF2) and (https://t.co/QR6RdXr8uX), (5/n)@lawremipsum I'm really disappointed.
