@willhughes “Introducted” is a combination of introduction and indoctrination, as in “Apple introduced eager geeks to the new 3G iPhone.” ;)

Re the building @ King/George Sts, Sydney. It’s a shop. It’ll sell Apple stuff. Same Apple stuff you buy anywhere else, same price. Grow up.

Silly, silly people. Don’t READ gossip, CREATE gossip! Much, much more satisfying.

@bck ACCC has not yet “denied” eBay forcing PayPal use. Draft ruling only. eBay has said they will fight it.

@gnoll110 I still use guano, call me a traditionalist. Others prefer to use shampoo and a gentle conditioner.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gnoll110

I am white-skinned and speak English as a first language. None of these radical compromises apply to me. Neither do my farts smell bad.

@gnoll110 But “before oil” there wasn’t 7 billion people on the planet, half living in cities, jetting to Bangkok for the weekend.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gnoll110

@gnoll110 @kcarruthers The more you look, the more you’ll see that oil underpins everything. Cities as they are now depend on cheap energy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gnoll110

@NathanaelB Your post about expressing opinions under your own name is superb too. http://is.gd/yaI Your rights? Use ‘em or lose ‘em. [nods]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NathanaelB

OK, I now know altogether too much about the state of various people’s internal organs, thanks for the messages. [sigh]

@kcarruthers Yes, that article touches ‘pon concrete too, cement being a MAJOR greenhouse problem. We’s all roooooooned!

The next person who types “alot” instead of “a lot” or “loose” instead of “lose”, may gods help me… I will so fuckin’ mash your pancreas!

@gnoll110 Speaking of the Romans they had, unlike my current home, technology called roofing which did not leak in the rain. Clever chaps.

Peak Oil means Peak Asphalt. Even with electric cars you won’t be able to drive anywhere. http://is.gd/y9W Price up 21% in last 2 years.

@JonoH Welcome to you, too. I’m slowly catching up with reality…

@glittertrash Welcome to my Twitterworld, such that it is this week. Normal service will be resumed in due course.

@jeffsonstein Why does seeing those three names together remind of Macbeth?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

I think http://openaustralia.org is goddam bloody important. Now we need to see people making good use of it in their fields of expertise.

@jeffsonstein And, by comparison, what proportion of (say) US federal law is about running the US federal government? Betchya more than 25%!

@garthk Does “bloke” know anything about railway signalling and existing multiple fail-safe mechanisms? Have they failed? No. Go GPS magic.

@goaldeebug Oh you think you offended me? Must try harder… ;)

@jeffsonstein You can find anything in Bangkok. ANYTHING. Just ask Khun Boonshoo, our concierge at Sukhumvit Soi 8… [smirks]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein @jeffsonstein Brian Eno wrote a wonderful essay about enforced limits once, wish I could find it, but it was WAY pre-Internet.

The sidewalk-crack images were all shot the same day we found the worst nachos in the all of Bangkok. At a California surfing theme cafe.

@smc2911 See now THAT’S logic! Next time I see an old Greek philosopher, I’ll pass on your name. “All drag queens are Socrates.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@jeffsonstein All A are B, therefore all B are A, yes, that’s the correct logic. [shakes head]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

I am nothing if not edumacational.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein All drag queen movies are, at their core, documentaries about Australia.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@franksting Produced by Molly Meldrum, was Supernaut. Along with http://is.gd/yjx … a classic, most expensive single then recorded in Oz.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@franksting Well if we’re basing Australian culture on film and video then we can’t forget http://is.gd/yjm … it sums up … everything.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@jeffsonstein Australia is exactly like Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Mad Max and Picnic at Hanging Rock, together, at all times.

@mpesce The sense of stranger in your homeland, I mean.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce You must write about it… as @ApostrophePong did when back in BKK after 6 years away. T’was interesting touring the city with him.

@SnarkyPlatypus Those over-heated double-decker Sydney trains can be like a sauna on humid winter days, for so many reasons…

I did not spill vinegar, not use hot water. We have A Special Tool for Jar Lids, with Gnarly Teeth.

Once again I have demonstrated man’s innate superiority by opening the hard-to-open jar of pickled vegetables. [Grrr!]

@pureandapplied The question is, who on earth orders middies to start with? Alcohol researchers, presumably? (And welcome!)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wiggoaugogo

@BrendanB Welcome to my Twitterverse, sir. Boy, did you pick a good night to arrive…! [smirks]

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus No, since we’re unearthing the greatest female vocal talent in Australia’s history there’s only one choice. http://is.gd/ygl

@dedlam Ahem! Though we have yet to meet, can you REALLY imagine me with a cat called “Pussikins”? Really?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dedlam

@SnarkyPlatypus Shocking audio. http://is.gd/yg0 is better, with a Hey Hey It’s Saturday introduction. You go, Girlfriend!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Nickhodge There’s a week of pent-up snarkiness causing IMMENSE pressure on every internal organ. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Call a gas fitter.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@SnarkyPlatypus I am afraid that if I search for “girlfriend” on YouTube that I’ll be led down a very dangerous pathway…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Riddle me this. How does Pete Burns look younger in http://is.gd/yfT than in http://is.gd/yex …? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge The Chantoozies were the biggest bunch of try-hard hags to come out of the Australian music industry in the entire 20th Century.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@kcarruthers I’ve been sick, inside for almost a week apart from 2 or 3 brief errands, and a liedown is the last thing I need. I NEED A GUN!

@SilkCharm Yes, I believe I’ve encountered an archetypical problem in identity management, no? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

Sorry, ladies, but a man can get pretty riled when things don’t go as he’d a’planned ‘em. Dang ‘ornery, y’might say.

Fuck you Yahoo! How the fuck am I meant to remember which set of fucking lies I told you when I signed up? 24-hour lock? Screw you, cunts!

@SnarkyPlatypus You are proof that YouTube access should not be allowed in the workplace.

@DebHuff Now how can I get someone to pay me to tweet all day? There must be some way…

via Twitter Web Client

@smc2911 Yes, The Humans Are Dead. http://tinyurl.com/2hnqs2 And not before time. (P.S. You are fuelling my deep, deep bitterness. Careful!)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@KujaWittman There are so, so many ways to respond to that, and only some of them involve goats.

I must be feeling better, I’m shouting at the Internet for being FULL OF STUPID FUCKING PEOPLE!

@smc2911 Everything makes a good pie, for some value of “pie”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@gnoll110 Your Honour, questions regarding house goats and related speculations are being handled by my learned colleague, @SnarkyPlatypus.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gnoll110

@Nickhodge Well mine was a dairy farm, as you know, and, compared with sheep, cows are eligible for Nobel prizes in 6+ different categories.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really despise sheep.

@broady Yes, you’re right. We should all down tools and celebrate! Steve has colonised our nation as well as our minds! O, Grateful Joyness!

@acatinatree Pie oven, I tell you.. pie oven! And don’t make me tell you how they REALLY make Krispy Kreme so, so sweet. Sugar n spice…

Tue plan: Bulk of the day at a Mosman client, if I ever get away from my desk; evening open to negotiation or being ignored.

@SilkCharm Noooooo. The way to deal with this is to scream and shout and drop the c-bomb liberally. Works for me. ;)

Emerging. Tuesday. Out of ammunition. Monday must’ve been good.

@KujaWittman I do have some book ideas, but the cats do not feature. And on that note, I shall retire. Plenty of client stuff tomorrow… :/

Retweet @jjprojects: “@wankergirl The Bangles Greatest Hits will make you sicker.” Nota bene, @SnarkyPlatypus!

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein OK, it’s 2340, can’t sleep, listening to King Crimson’s “Red” isn’t helping. It never did then, don’t see why it will now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

This is number 2. http://is.gd/ymz The glitch at the start is part of the track. Yay.

@kcarruthers I have a very very special video selected for my next broadcast (whenever that is)… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@jeffsonstein No I was quote @wolfcat re “theme song”. My theme song is… help me here somebody.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

I think the only rational course of action is to base my entire life on Russell Mulchahey video clips. http://is.gd/yll Every song in order.
