Steven Tyler, Felicity Huffman earn Hudson Valley Tweets of the Week
Who had this week's best tweets among celebrities to call the Hudson Valley home? No need to scour the Internet — we've done it for you! — as it's time once again for the Hudson Valley Tweets of the Week.
For the first week of September, we'll take a look at four guys with intriguing photos and one gal who's hilariously honest about her memory lapse. (Oh, and click here if you missed any of the August editions of Tweets of the Week.)
At No. 5, "Saturday Night Live" guitarist Jared Scharff is gearing up for the new season, which premieres Sept. 15 with host Seth MacFarlane. Linking to an Instagram photo, the Clarkstown South High School alumus and veteran of Nyack's downtown music scene is more than a little psyched to see some sheet music with only one measure of predetermined notes.
I'm kind of surprised they didn't just give him a piece of paper with the word "solo" on it. A photo of Hope Solo would have been more useful.
In the fourth spot is former Yonkers resident Steven Tyler, who's at it again with all-caps Twitter musings that dared not be contained in 140 characters. But this time around, his 1,000 words are better represented in a photo of him with the rest of Aerosmith, who are working on their 15th album, "Music from Another Dimension!"
Seems like he's more than happy to stop judging amateur vocalists, an epiphany I had when I stopped watching "American Idol" years earlier.
Speaking of a Tyler who spent his youth in Yonkers, former "Everybody Hates Chris" star Tyler James Williams is readying for Tuesday's premiere of his new sitcom, "Go On." The younger Tyler retweeted "Go On" co-star Matthew Perry's tweet of them both on set, seriously clowning around.
Although I'm still not quite sure what to make of "Go On," I would watch this hypothetical buddy show based on outfits alone. Also, I'm hoping they've padded their bellies for comedic effect. If not, my compliments to craft services, who are doing their job a bit too well.
This week's TotW runner-up is Bedford resident and Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas, who on Wednesday paid a work-related visit to fellow northern Westchester resident David Letterman. And while lounging around in the Ed Sullivan Theater, he spotted a pic of Bob Dylan, presumably playing on Ed's old show.
Dylan's official Twitter account seems to be run by his team and is all business, but aside from Twitter, he's arguably the Hudson Valley's biggest celebrity newsmaker this week. The former Woodstock resident played a show at Bethel Woods on Sunday, reopened The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester on Tuesday, and appeared in a vision to Rob Thomas on Wednesday. He is everywhere at all times. He might be right behind you as you read this.
This week's top tweet belongs to former "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman. Yesterday, the Bedford native celebrated her 15th wedding anniversary to "Fargo" star William H. Macy, but, um, needed to be reminded to do so.
From Macy's perspective, I'm guessing her honesty and humor probably more than made up for public memory lapse — as did the present she said she ran out to buy moments later. As a final mea culpa, she later called marrying Macy "One of the best things that ever happened to me."
