Tweets Tweets and More Tweets (Tweets)

Tweets. Tweets. Twitter! It’s all about The Twitter. Except when it’s all about The Facebook. Or The Google. Those are The Big Three, I think. Oh! The YouTube. So much for (un)holy trinities.

Anyway, here are some tweets we stumbled across that we decided to share with you.

How this works, parents using Bing to get a free tablet for their child’s classroom, I have no idea. But Microsoft has done stranger things so we figured it was worth sharing.

Nathan Rabin is a funny guy. Also a very good writer. Pick up his books, any of them. They’re good.

Apparently I follow Jimmy Fallon on Twitter. (I badly need to look at my Twitter account. By the way, are you following me @brettsinger? You should. I’m very interesting.) Anyway, here Mr. Fallon tweets a rather kindly worded review of Seth Rogen’s latest film, Neighbors. The tone matches Fallon’s general image, which is that he seems like a nice guy.

And here’s a photo of Jimmy Fallon, because why not.

Rihanna And Her No Longer Secret Siblings [Family Secrets]

Rihanna - Loud

The New York Post reports that superstar singer Rihanna “has been quietly keeping touch with at least three sisters and brothers, from various flings by her playboy dad, according to The Sun of London.”

The Post headline is “Rihanna has secret half-sisters and brother.” Well it’s not a secret anymore!

I’m fascinated by these so-called secret families. Adults who find their fathers on Facebook, that sort of thing. What makes Rihanna’s story different is that Read more »

Dad and Daughter Meet For The First Time on Facebook

Hi Daddy movie on VHS

Again! First we had the 41 year old woman who met her father by chance for the first time at a hospital. Now a young lady decides to look up her dad on Facebook, and bam! There he is.

Luckily this wasn’t a creepy story, where they met on Facebook, didn’t know each other, and then went out on a date or something. Like in that Jennifer Aniston movie Rumor Has It, where they sort of imply that maybe she sleeps with her dad. (I didn’t see the movie, by the way, but I read a review where they said this happens.)

Hi Daddy movie on VHS from You can buy it for a penny. Whoo-hoo! But you’ll need a VCR. Which you may also be able to get for a penny.

Full Moon

February 20th was a full moon. I checked because I received two phone calls in less than an hour of people looking for a Brett Singer that wasn’t me.

I always thought my name was unique, but I guess not. There’s a D-level porn actor, a children’s book author, and roughly 30 people on Facebook.

Having the name in grade school was no picnic: “Singer? La la la! Sing a song, Singer!” “Brett! Bread! Brat!” That sort of thing. I haven’t noticed much name-related teasing going on in the limited sample of kids that I see, although I’m sure it goes on as much as it always did.

But two false positives on my name in one hour? Definitely Full Moon time. Next: a comet hits the earth…
