Welcome to Twitter in Focus, where media comes to die! And speaking of dying, today’s contestant is Artie Lange, who is, thankfully, very much alive. He’s hilarious on stage, let’s see what he’s tweeting.
May 2nd: “The great Alaa Abdelnaby came by to watch the fight. Can u guess which one of us played in the NBA?! ” https://twitter.com/artiequitter/status/594678846621888513/photo/1
His name would wipe out the “A’s” in Scrabble.
May 2nd: “Can’t get enough of these guys! pic.twitter.com/nnqlEsj7nN”
They really need Mike Tyson in there. Not so I could listen to him, just so I could laugh at him.
May 2nd: “Now that Jamie Foxx butchered the National Anthem let’s fight!”
Guess he should’ve acted his way through it.
May 2nd: “Boxing has changed. When did Don King become Burger King?!”
Chicken fries! Only in America!
May 3rd: “My prediction: Paris Hilton will blow Burger King.”
Was there anyone at this fight that wasn’t a franchise?
May 3rd: “When did Andre Agassi start dating David Lee Roth?”
When they started sharing Rogaine tips?
May 3rd: “Stay tuned after the fight when HBO presents Abott & Costellos Who’s on First? Performed by Roy Jones Jr & Floyd Mayweather Sr. !”
I almost wished I had seen this fight on someone else’s dime.
May 3rd: “Even if Mayweather wins Jamie Foxx has made America tonight’s biggest loser”
May 3rd: “The winner should fight that mother in Baltimore who slapped her kid”
May 3rd: “BORING!! So bad. Terrible rip off fight”
There’s no way it was going to live up to the hype.
Webcomic: The Sisters
Creators: Peter Violini, Brian L. Richmond
Format: Comic book pages, color
Genre: Urban fantasy
Themes: Siblings, family, magic, modern day life
Characters: Erin, Jam, Beatrice
The Sisters is about a group of modern day witches that live in the Boston area. The mostly foul-mouthed O’Sullivan girls have a gift for magic because of their bloodline. They live in a world in which witches live in a secret society that’s pretty casual. The modern day stuff gives it a good twist and the sisters feel like characters with powers, rather than powerful people that are sometimes characters.
The strong female leads are fun and they have a lot of personality. Violini and Richmond are taking their time and have so far posted two chapters and a side story. I assume it’s all leading somewhere, but right now I’m enjoying the ride. The artwork and writing are both very solid and I could see a really good graphic novel coming out of this. Definitely check out The Sisters.
