I just want to say I would gladly pay hundreds of dollars for a leather bound tome that contained the complete works of Love that Goku (https://twitter.com/Love_that_Goku).

Perhaps I shall make one, so that there might be a record of his glorious work when twitter is no more.

The tale he has weaved combines triumph and tragedy. A postmodern epic told from the perspective of a boy so cursed as to fall short of his dreams, yet so blessed as to not realize it.

I could not stand not sharing it with you any longer.

I do hope you enjoy it.

It's OK, but not as good as He-Man's livejournal. (http://heman.livejournal.com/2002/01/16/)

When did you discover this, BEAT?

Depending on your answer, I may owe you an apology for negligence.

He's known about it for months, near on years. You're just not part of the cool club of people that he shared it with. Until now.

I've been following him for ages, but for some reason I suddenly remembered the "Dragonball Z Party Arc" this morning and decided I could stand Idle no longer.

Nah nah, @dril is a lesser graeyalien, graeyalien is the Patient Zero of this entire school of humor

Amp even when your jokes miss the mark I know they're coming from a unique, real place (the heart)

Horse_ebooks hasn't been funny for ~2 years, but I'm still laughing at the fact that a poorly-programmed ebook spambot was able to juxtapose the mundane with the absurd more effectively than 99% of twitter "comedians"

You mean the "The Collective Anticipation of a Group of People Waiting to Eat" one? I'm not sure if that was him but daaamn I gotta find that post, it is a little treasure

e: Found it, I was googling the wrong phrase. This definitely isn't graey_alien though
Another time me and Dancehall was smokin at he place in Brooklyn and talking about some underground rap shit, I said man take me to the newest cats you heard of, the rawest street shit only. Dancehall get real quiet and take out a small celly, like looked like a baby cell phone or something, shit was tiny. He open it up and it just had one button, button had no number on it? He press it and instead of saying anything into he just held up some black and white photograph of a dog to the mouthpiece and lit it on fire, didn't say nothing. I was much lifted from the w33d and thought he was fucking with me because thats how Dancehall be sometimes when he high, but like 1 minute later someone beeping outside, don't sound like no normal horn, its hard to describe u know? Like niggas was beeping and this scar I had on my knee from when I was short and ran into a coffee table started itching and I went to scratch it and Dancehall just looked at me like "No nigga, don't itch that. Itch that is the rudest thing you could do." And we went outside and the car was a Escalade sitting on like 24s also, pretty intimidating to get into a devil hell Escalade when you high, but Dancehall wasnt afraid. Driver was on some secret service shit, didn't smile, didn't even look at us, we just got in and buckled up. We ended up at this underground garage somewhere in deep Queens, like driving down floor after floor while we just got higher and higher. And then suddenly, there we were, bottom floor, all dark except for the glowing illuminesence of a crowd of niggas checking they Sidekicks and droids, no service because were underground but they still checkin, and a lone spotlight on this dude, real short cat, like 5 feet, wearin all red. Someone had a drum kit, real small, started giving him the most basic beats, and nigga started spitting, but they weren't rhymes. Nigga was spitting anticipation of different events, right? Like all of a sudden, I got real nervous about Easter, started thinking about how I had a bunch of candy and shit to buy, right? Then next I was dreading my 40th birthday. I turn to dancehall and I'm "Nigga I'm only 28!!!! Who is this cat and how he spit anticipation of 12 years from now, thats like some 2021 shit???????" and Dancehall was 'man, nicca name is some awful shit, his moms was a chef at an unpopular but profitable resturant and his dad I heard was a vet who was in the bomb squad and come back with PTSD, so they named him the collective nervousness of a group of people reluctantly waiting to eat. When nigga walks past a Taco Bell, its like a whole crowd of people chanting he name, sultry seduction of crowds of girls waving they titties, smearing them with fire sauce. Drives him crazy like a wolf, make the nicca hornie as hell devil, got arrested last week for putting he mystery weener in one of those new black tacos, found him crying in the bathroom covered in cinnamon, crying, screaming "why u name me this way, chef mom" and I said "no way can a nigga be named that, how they put that on he birth certificate" and it turn out he was born at a Jewish hospital!!! I was like "nigga u cold" and thats why I dont eat tacos no more

I miss @utilitylimb so much. He was my favorite of the bunch. Graey Alien has been amazing, but defined more by noise than signal. I would read tweets from bandit like some people read the Tao te Ching

Is this Kickstarter-worthy? Let's get this ball rolling.

Thank you for reminding me about Love that Goku. I hadn't checked in with him in months, and I'm intrigued by the appearance of this new character, Uncle Francis. The man is, apparently, a clown.

Truly though, there is sublime beauty in these tweets.

Weird twitter is the best twitter.

There was a weird twitter "live poetry jam" a few weeks back where weird twitters read their weird tweets, out loud, off of note cards, in front of an audience. It was the saddest fucking thing.

And now, here (http://ethnographymatters.net/2013/06/30/why-weird-twitter-part-1/) is scholarly writing about weird twitter.
