I Love Twitter. And @TimRothLieToMe
I am an avid watcher of two really great shows.
The first one is House. I love the show because it was smart and witty. I have to be honest, lately I watch purely out of loyalty. Its still smart and witty, but not to the caliber that it was before. The ratings of the show [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_(TV_series)#U.S._television_ratings] support my views. And, so I’m on the record on this — I loved the idea of House and Cutty before Amber died — I loathe the idea now.
The other show I live to watch is “Lie to Me”. I started watching it online as soon as the show became available and when the first season ended, I couldn’t WAIT for the second season. I was so very happy when I didn’t have to wait very long at all — the second season started almost immediately after the first, and then the third wasn’t very far behind.
Now I’m just praying for a fourth season.
There’s something about the wit behind the show. I’m an INTP personality type. Apparently this means I’m just a tad over-analytical [though I wasn’t gifted with a system to really support this, I’ve had to resort to teaching myself, and its working well]. I LOVE seeing them show what the face of shame looks like, and then following it up with a view of Bill Clintons face. I love that the show is designed to connect itself with our emotions on situations, and show us that we’re all the same. At our core – we’re all the same.
Now, the reason I love Twitter. I’ve had the opportunity to speak, or tweet rather, with several of my favorite musicians. There was nothing more exciting then seeing them reply to my question or joke in reference to them. Its not a huge deal, because I’ve met them before in person a few times — and because while they have tons of followers and fans they aren’t HUGE names.
But last night, I was on Twitter – the joys of running out of Internet while not working — and Tim Roth, who plays Cal Lightman on “Lie to Me” posted this:
“Might lose some fans here .. But if you look up ‘utter nut job’ in the dictionary does it say ‘glen[n] beck’?.. An innocent question!!”
I immediately, expecting no response, replied:
Which is true. I love listening to Glenn Beck. Don’t get me wrong, everything he says I take with a grain of salt and some research, but he has a fantastic sense of humor that is right up my alley. If you don’t understand, its okay – ’cause The Bees Know.
But here’s the part that made my night:
