Hey bros.  Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is comedian Demetri Martin.  He’s a very visually oriented comic.  Perfect for a webcomic blog.  Let’s see what he’s sketching.


November 3rd:  “Today’s photo. http://say.ly/hCvWwG

Ha!  Pee.

November 4th:  “Those are appropriate words for a sentence to have at the end.”

But, wha–?

November 7th:  “Today’s drawing. #demetrimARTin >>> http://say.ly/rtTXGg

Tough to do a math joke unless you have the visual.

November 8th:  “Where my people who skip state-of-being verbs at?”

I here!

November 9th: “Today’s photo. http://say.ly/hoWYfp

Hmm.  Not sure what that one means.  I should write this sober.

November 10th:  “Male ladybugs have no idea that they are trannies.”

Do not tell Eddie Murphy.

November 11th:  “Today’s drawing. #demetrimARTin >>> http://say.ly/qFlYRV

You really have to do your own webcomic site, Demetri.  It would kick so much ass.

November 14th:  “Monday – the only day that also spells “Dynamo.”

It’s also “Nom Day”, nom-nom-nom.

November 15th:  “Today’s photo. http://say.ly/TVe1003

Or farting flames.

November 16th: “Tic Tacs are the maracas of breath mints.”

It’s a shame they don’t make that noise while they’re in your mouth.  That would be a good selling point.

November 17th:  “Today’s drawing. #demetrimARTin >>> http://say.ly/SMk10zQ

Ooo, political.  Nice.

November 21st:  “Update: you just read this.”

Wait a minute, no I—  Dammit.

November 22nd:  “Today’s drawing. #demetrimARTin http://say.ly/awm122S

That pretty much sums it up.

November 23rd:  “Happy Gray Wednesday.”

Is it Gandolf the Gray’s birthday already?  Dammit, the other geeks will be so pissed I forgot.

November 28th:  “Today’s photo. http://say.ly/HJB13ta

Man, you do a lot of work on Twitter, Demetri.  It’s like getting your book for free.

November 29th:  “To wish upon a star, but from a safe enough distance to avoid being incinerated.”

But then your wish doesn’t come true.

November 30:  “CANADA. Me. Tour. January. Tickets – http://www.hahaha.com/en/concerts/act/2922

Go see him Canada.  He’s funny and quirky, like someone from Ottowa.

December 3rd:  “I wear dark sunglasses when I want my head to look more like a limousine.”

That was the alternative lyric by Corey Hart, I think.

December 5th:  “Today’s drawing. #demetrimARTin http://say.ly/nFs15ra

Yeah, fuck Christmas!

10 hours ago:  “The definition of “adventure” depends upon how boring your life is.”


Okay, let’s rate Demetri’s tweets.  He’s really working the Twitter.  I give him a 9 for Mustness, a 9 for Insanity and a 9 for Style.  An overall 9.  Little behind the scenes stuff and it would be perfect.  Follow him!
