@kcarruthers And how do you know whether I am with or without trousers? The Internet hides many truths, and reveals others.

Richard E Grant in a post-amphetamine rage, a shotgun and no trousers, demanding “something’s flesh” to eat. Yes, this is my life.

@cbishops Wow, my world is being confused with a Woody Allen parody, and fictional cartoon dogs dream about me. My life is complete.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cbishops

@cbishops Woody Allen? Well it was “Withnail & I” just then. About 55 mins in.

@acatinatree The “hair” comment was by Danny, the drug dealer visiting the flat just before the chaps head north.

@SnarkyPlatypus Burn them. Yes. “Burn them,” I say. I think arson is, quite rightfully, the theme of the day.

“All hairdressers are in the employment of the government. Hair are your aerials. They pick up signals from the cosmos…”

Their array of “rare herbs and proscribed chemicals” is not working its magic.

via Twitter Web Client

“Withnail & I” is not bitter enough.

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat YouTube provides all… even Dylan Moran. But “Withnail & I” has been… obtained.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

But I need sheer, unadulterated, pure bitterness. The Good Stuff.

via Twitter Web Client

@acatinatree @mrspeaker Yes, “Withnail & I”, “Saxondale” and “15 Storeys High” are all possible…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to acatinatree

@kcarruthers@stilgherrian does absinthe really cause hallucinations?” Huh? Why. Ask. Me? (Maybe don’t answer that.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

OK, even Black Books isn’t doing the trick. I need something stronger than Dylan Moran. Urgently.

via Twitter Web Client

Chocolate. Is. No. Substitute. For. Gin. But. Absinthe. Is. A. Potential. Stopgap.

via Twitter Web Client

Speaking of snarkiness, I am currently in no mood for a celebratory dinner. An episode or 2 of Black Books will doubtless help.

via Twitter Web Client

@SilkCharm Snarkiness is not “fixed”, it is “refined”. As if in a crucible, made pure. Pure snark. And gin is the catalyst.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

Retweeting @textism: “A six gigabyte torrent entitled ‘The Best of The Price Is Right’. I’m not kidding.” See, ‘old media’ is not dead.

via Twitter Web Client

@SilkCharm @SnarkyPlatypus Chocolate is no substitute for gin. And gin can be taken internally.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

Starbucks’ voluntarily closing their stores has only one negative: it reduces the opportunities for justifiable arson.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Maybe you should refer the white iPhone issue to http://artofmanliness.com …?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Isn’t it a bit strange that a fictional cartoon dog is dreaming about me?

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon “had a dream i burgled stilgherrian’s house - put all his stuff in a truck and drove out on the highway” Yes, you ARE weird.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

There! I’ve tweeted about syadmin stuff, politics and my cat, and I’ve used the f-word. My day is complete.

@julesoir Apollo is 6.5kg and has this thing for anything red. Chillies & tomatoes, for instance, MUST be on the floor, not the bench.

RAID5 recovery = 4.5% (8792960/193157376) finish=90.2min. Original cause: playful cat pulled pretty red cable from one of the SATA drives.

via Twitter Web Client

One positive point: I’m really, really good at this stuff. I get it wright most of the tiem. Trooly.

via Twitter Web Client

This is not the excuse I wanted to install Ubuntu, nor the reason to re-structure the RAID. One mistake, goodbye data. Whacko.

@john_chr @jeffonstein This is a RAID5 set, the / of a Linux box. Should be able to boot off something else and rebuild.

EXT3-fs: unable to read superblock [blah] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! [blah] I AM NOT IN THE MOOD FOR THIS, HEAR ME?

@kcarruthers Fuck it, I’ll torch the server, office, the house, next door’s house, the street! And piss on it all as it burns. Live video.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

And now to see why my file server has decided to die in the arse. Might just torch the damn thing.

@jeffsonstein The trial had a specific, limited scope. It was set up by Sen Conroy’s predecessor, he’s going with the flow. Intends to fail?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@steven_noble I assumed diff train tech = diff place to, erm, divert funds in our non-corrupt State.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to steven_noble

Wed plan: Leaving NOW for Darlinghurst client site meeting, then… not sure… brunch somewhere. Then ad lib until collapse.

via Twitter Web Client

And we wonder why they can’t get trains to work… though I did like Premier Iemma pimping minibuses as Teh Answer on the weekend. WTF?

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce @SnarkyPlatypus What was scariest about that story? That MPs thought, “Mental health problems? Go to MICHAEL COSTA for advice.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@firstdogonmoon At least a sea cucumber could be turned into a nice salad after the election.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

What would make a better government for NSW? A pork bun. A sea cucumber. A plastic bag full of old cat litter. Any combination of the above.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein … and even cleverer, a line has just been built with tunnels that are a steeper grade than the trains can handle.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Though the last batch of trains built were heaver & used more power before, too much even to run on certain lines…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Sydney seriously needs transport for the NW suburbs, but somehow the wrong kind of train got approved…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein No, the NSW govt has actually approved a $12B metro-style rail for an outer-urban route, precisely NOT what is needed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@mpesce Yes, that’s what newspapers have become, a promotional medium for computer games. And they wonder why they have no respect.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Mind you, I have just been looking back thru my Twitter stream and I am… concerned.

via Twitter Web Client

I tell you what, if arson was the theme yesterday, I don’t know what’ll be the theme today!

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein … and [surprise again] a ‘terrorist suspect” never was. http://is.gd/18b1 But that’s OK, as long as we beat the All Blacks.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Ah well the earrthquake does make news here, but [surprise] stupid metro scheme was advised against http://is.gd/18aQ

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

What I love about saying random things is that other people then project THEIR insecurities… ;)
