Questlove buys out theater for A Tribe Called Quest movie screening 550x364 #FF @QUESTLOVE

It goes without saying that everyone should be following Questlove (@questlove) on Twitter, and it seems like everyone already is (he has around 1.7 million followers). Not surprising given his long resume (drummer for The Roots, musical director for the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’s house band, DJ, producer, music journalist, etc.), the @questlove Twitter stream is very eclectic. Lately, it has swayed toward the trending topic (or lack thereof) of #occupywallstreet, but the tweets are normally a mix of his obvious encyclopedic knowledge of hip hop, a childlike enthusiasm for the bands he gets to watch on the set of Jimmy Fallon, and those completely endearing instances that prove Questlove is also Ahmir Thompson, just a regular guy from Philly.

“lol at @frankknuckles getting all nervous over gwar….watch that blood dun @latenightjimmy”

“Irony of the day: gray haired gentleman in late 50s workin out to Carter 4, & me working out to The Smile Boxset next to him”

“lol so a 14 yr old can give head & be all types of trending topics. but the word “occupy” is forbidden? lol twitter down w/ OPD”

“i would give anything to have the feeling i felt the FIRST time tariq and i saw this video. THIS made us form @TheRoots http://youtu.be/UbDFS6cg1Al
