It’s all over but the shouting.

After a direct message from the proverbial gift horse, I tweeted a sad thing:
sad-but-true

    I hope at least some of you have noticed my restraint in not saying Fuck you, Tracy.

  3. Sheila Ryan on March 30th, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    You said it in your head. I heard it.

  4. Sheila Ryan on March 30th, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    Shall we play a new game?

    I know! I know!

    THE REAL COOPER ESTEBAN.

  5. Cooper Renner on March 30th, 2009 at 3:20 pm

    I heard there is no real Cooper Esteban.

    Does Andrew’s post mean Twitter is shutting cwalken down? I don’t know nothin’ ’bout Twitter.

  6. Hobson on March 30th, 2009 at 3:30 pm

    oh shit. I hope all the twits are stored somewhere

  7. Andrew Simone on March 30th, 2009 at 3:31 pm

    Cooper, they shut it down and reopened it, changed the name, and then shut it down again. Trelvix messaged me and told me what we both already knew.

    Also, we are working on getting those twits, Hobson.

  8. Cindy Scroggins on March 30th, 2009 at 3:38 pm

    I’m pretty sure the real Cooper Esteban is some guy named Brian or Bryan or something.

  9. Cindy Scroggins on March 30th, 2009 at 3:42 pm

    By the way, just who the hell is this Trelvix feller?

  10. Chris on March 30th, 2009 at 4:01 pm

    Noooooooooo! Talk about getting my hopes up.

    Andrew, it was a beautiful, funny and weird thing that’s beyond description. Thanks for doing it – it was amazing to watch it grow/gain traction, especially when I was aware of what was really going on.

    Again, profound thanks.

  12. Sheila Ryan on March 30th, 2009 at 4:05 pm

    Cindy, you mean Bert?

  13. Sheila Ryan on March 30th, 2009 at 4:09 pm

    Now Trelvix. Pretty sure they were some early eighties Franco-Prussian band. Or maybe Belgian. Like Plastic Bertrand.

  14. Andrew Simone on March 30th, 2009 at 4:17 pm

    Shoot, walt, I was just an unofficial mouthpiece for the author of those tweets, but I am certainly glad you enjoyed the whole fiasco.

  15. anonymous on March 30th, 2009 at 4:44 pm

    Perhaps an external to twitter (here perhaps?) and dedicated page that gets microblogged to by a banished cwalken could allow his memes to live on through retwitcarnation (RTc)…

    RTc cwalken (blah, blah, blah, etc.)

    kinda like a virtual kid in the classroom, in the timeout chair, that still makes everyone laugh

    I saw Jesus on a piece of toast. That was God’s fault, of course. Probably the bread’s idea though.

  17. Cooper Renner on March 30th, 2009 at 6:09 pm

    Trail mix?

  18. Tracy Hinshaw on March 30th, 2009 at 6:09 pm

    I just got a note from one of you giving me credit for all of this.

    I was actually flattered for a second until I realized we were still talking about Twitter!

    You kids and your gizmos.

  19. Dave Vogt on March 30th, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    I feel like metaphors may be
    no, no, in the active voice!
    I think you’re mixing your metaphors there.

  20. Sheila Ryan on March 30th, 2009 at 8:23 pm

    Hell’s bells, a fellow would feel kinda puffed up to learn that someone thought he was responsible for all those clusterflock brilliancies that I posted.

    So it had to be a bringdown to realize it was Twitter they were talking about.

    But don’t be discouraged! You’re on the right track!

    Good luck next time!

  21. Brian Beatty on March 31st, 2009 at 2:44 pm

    I am NOT the real Cooper Esteban.

  22. Sheila Ryan on March 31st, 2009 at 2:51 pm

    Complete instant mashed potatoes.

  23. M Sarki on April 3rd, 2009 at 3:44 pm

    From twitter’s Steve Buscemi:
    Steve_Buscemi spoke with Christopher Walken regarding his fake Twitter. Trying to convince him to start a real one…he fears it won’t be as good.

  24. @CaptKoons on April 4th, 2009 at 2:01 pm

    Christopher Walken fears he wouldn’t be as good… as himself. well we simply must at least have a fake fake cwalken
