Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is director Edgar Wright.  He directed Sean of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.  Let’s see how he directs some tweets.


March 4th:  “If I was writing the fifth Indiana Jones movie, this would be the glorious treasure he seeks… http://twitpic.com/8s4zqu

I’m pretty sure that’s either coffee or chocolate.  Someone likes their caffeine.

March 4th:  “I very much enjoyed watching Bill Hader on SNL last night, making Fox News creepier and James Carville crazier.”

I learned a whole new respect for Bill Hader when I saw he was part of the South Park writing team.

March 5th:  “Steve Silk Hurley’s Jack Your Body is playing in the gym. If the next song is Man 2 Man’s Male Stripper I may Midnight In Paris back to ’87.”

If you do, warn my past self not to buy so many crappy comic books.

March 5th:  “p.s. Saying that you’re in the gym does not count as #humblebrag. Only if you tweet what treadmill speed you were going.”

What if I drive past a gym while picking up my pizza?

March 5th:  “@nickjfrost The people next to me were freaked out when I shouted ‘Gerroff me you little cunt’ & flapped my hands about. I am too method.”

I’m not sure what that is in reference to, but that sounds pretty funny.

March 5th:  ““It’s Alright” by ADAM FAITH is my new jam. ? http://t.thisismyjam.com/edgarwright/_o6zr7p

That’s not bad actually.  I think I could probably play that on my Casio keyboard too.

March 5th:  “Who said it? Mitt Romney or Mr Burns?http://mad.blog.dccomics.com/2012/03/02/who-said-it-mitt-romney-or-mr-burns/

In fairness to Romney, he hasn’t yet decided to blot out the sun.  Just wait until he’s president.

I’m sorry, I think you wanted #Whoawhoawhoayourboat.

7 hours ago:  ““Death Line” by Will Malone is my new jam. ? http://t.thisismyjam.com/edgarwright/_oqrnx6

Still?!  That was so 12 hours ago.

4 hours ago:  “”Ain’t going out like a sucker, No need to huff & puffa Cause Baby I am tougher, Than you think, so you just gotta suffer” – Elizabeth Boo”

No idea who that is.  Must be English.

Okay, let’s rate Edgar’s tweets.  I give him an 8 for Mustness, a 9 for Insanity and a 9 for Style.  Plus, since he’s part of the Simon Pegg/Nick Frost triad, I’ll round up the whole score to 9.  You gotta follow Edgar.  How else are you going to know about the next movie he directs?
