Nice.  Could use a puppet, but still nice.

May 23rd:  “New Six Feet Under CD Undead @sixfeetofficial is their best one yet! Sick, demented lyrics! It’s #5 on Metal Itunes!”

I had no idea the cast of that show had a band.  Gotta check it out.

May 24th:  “Check out the new @Slash CD Apocalyptic Love. Great hard rock songs. @MylesKennedy nailing it on the vocals!”


May 24th:  “6/16 Harpos Detroit, Mi. Comedy Metal Road Show w Jim F, Don J, n Ed Trunk. A night of Comedy, Metal, n Music Trivia. http://Harposconcerttheatre.com

Wait a minute?  Is that Christian Metal!?

May 28th:  “I’ll be interviewed during 1p @Mets game today by @KBurkhardtSNY to promote season premiere of my new show @BeerMoneyonSNY right after game!”

You must be a happy Mets fan after this.

I saw Windy City Heat and that was pretty fucking brilliant.

You are busy, Jim.  Good to see you workin’.

May 29th:  “Less then one month away @realdonjamieson and I are opening for Metallica at Orion Fest in AC. #FuckingInsane!”

I’ve always liked this Metallica song. (Shh!  Don’t tell them it’s free on Youtube!)

Damn, someone loves metal.

Too late now.

New York bros, take notice. He’s funny.

6 hours ago:  “Got a few minutes in airport. Any questions. Keep them short so I can retweet and respond. Please no questions about my big dick.”

And so went a pretty long Q&A with the fans.  Nice.

Okay, let’s rate Jim’s tweets.  Certainly very responsive to fans.  Good mix of plugs and other stuff.  I give Jim an 8 for Style, an 8 for Insanity and a 10 for Mustness.  That’s an overall score of 9.  Yay!  Follow Jim.
