PEOPLE I LIKE | TWITTER
A fairly random selection of some of the cool (and often quite whacky) people I’ve come across on my Twitter timeline...
My first ever follower, and therefore Queen of my timeline, Brindille is the only being in the known universe Ming the Merciless is afraid of. Can’t say I’m surprised- she scares the bejeebers out of me!
Brindille (@Brindille_ )
Ming the Merciless (@DrBizzarro)
On the run from the Interplanetary Tax Authorities, insane space tyrant Ming has taken refuge here on Earth, cunningly disguised as a van driver from Lancaster.
Evil henchman of Ming the Merciless masquerading as an independent film maker. He’s fooling no-one.
Adrienne loves art, Russian literature and post-punk music. Sounds like the CV of a perfect human being to me.
Brian is a jovial soul who’s into some pretty cool music. He assures me he can remember the sixties, which means, of course, he wasn’t there...
Darin says he’s married to the Dragon with the Girl Tattoo. And he’s from Walsall. He needs all the support we can give him.
Bubbly, kind and forthright, Aussie girl Kim tells it how it is. She doesn’t suffer fools gladly but has agreed to make an exception in my case.
Blake once saw Martha Reeves perform live on a booze cruise sailing round New York harbour. I rest my case.
ek Oh or ee ko
ek Oh or ee ko (no, I don't know what it means either) regularly tweets stuff that’s either cool, or whacky, or cool and whacky. I often pop round to her timeline for a cup of tea and a chat.
Once dubbed ‘the most photogenic man in Britain’ by some bloke who’d clearly had a few, Ken is, in fact, the most colossal genius the world has ever known. He makes Einstein and Newton look like Beavis and Butt-head.
Edie is responsible for some of the coolest, most stylish black and white photography to appear on my timeline. She occasionally treats me to a photo of Monica Vitti, for which I am eternally grateful.
Aussie charmer Amber is enthusiastic about my novel (God knows why!). So enthusiastic in fact, she’s threatened to wipe the floor with me if I don’t start knocking out instalments a bit quicker...
