@TCGO1974: The Twitter feed of Kamtin Mohager, aka The Chain Gang of 1974, one of Denver's up-and-coming musical exports and an active Twit. Currently, Mr. Mohager is out on the road with the traveling circus/punk-rock extravaganza known as Warped Tour, so if you like that sort of thing, you can get something of an inside view of what it's like. And even if you don't, you can get updates on how long it's been since he's cleaned up, like this one: "It's now Monday. I haven't showered since last Tuesday. It's been almost a week. I think I'll turn into poop by tomorrow." That's riveting stuff, folks.
@KingSOUPers: The Twitter home of DJ Soup (born Matt Cambell), one of Denver's most exciting DJ/VJ/remixologists and an all around cool guy. His Twitter stream goes in fits and spurts, but it's a good way to keep up with where he's playing around town, what his mood is and what kind of dating advice some of Denver's other fine DJs are giving him. Take this recent Tweet: "I just got told, 'being a nice guy isn't gunna get you laid Soup', from @boyhollow... the sad truth. Good night tho here at Scumbag Sunday!" It is the sad truth, Matt. Nice guys finish last.
@RbtBRutherford: The Twitter home of Robert B. Rutherford, approximately 1/8th of Everything Absent or Distorted, one of my very favorite Denver bands. They have their own Twitter feed (@EAOD), but it appears to be abandoned, or at least severely neglected. I admit, I've only been following Rutherford for a few days, and he appears to be a newish Twit. But he's shown himself to be something of Twitter philosopher/poet, dispensing nuggets of beauty such as "had a dream last night of dark rooms with old ladies whose skin glowed red where their cancers bloomed" and practical wisdom like "Bike to Work Day is not as fun as Bike to The Liquor Store Day." All too true, Robert. That's just a small taste -- he's also weighed in on such timeless topics as strange bros in confined spaces discussing their sexual conquests and the "skullfuckery" of family gatherings. Good stuff, without exception.
