@dizzystuff? A no-go-zone word? Nah, I think you can say “naughty schoolgirl threesome” without getting into too much trouble.

@limburger2001 I may well go somewhere with food and alcohol. I want to avoid Newtown though: it’ll be awash with drunken festival-goers.

@shanemo Huh? Does that mean the other 49.7% of organisations invest in digital media in order NOT to achieve their goals? [confused]

@dizzystuff You censored your own tweet? Now I want to know what you said! LOL!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

Decisions! Should I stay home and write something else? Go for a walk? Go to the pub? Have a late lunch? It’s all too difficult!

@kcarruthers I’ll be interested to see how the new phone / Qik etc change my mix of posts too. Plus I should use my Flickr account more.

@trib @NathanaelB Agreed, that photo is Damn Fine. http://is.gd/6KYE Who are those dodgy people though? ;)

“12 worst iPhone case designs” http://is.gd/6KVC Silver snakeskin? Gold and diamond-encrusted carbon fibre? WTF?

@kcarruthers OK, my response is written! “How I decide what and when to blog”: http://is.gd/6KUd

Dear Twitterverse, can ANYONE explain how an illegally-copied DVD could “wreck expensive home entertainment systems”? Sounds bullshit to me.

via Twitter Web Client

@josh909 @nebgrubb @neerav Thanks for the pointers, chaps. Now that I’m back from the shops I’ll settle down to write. [head down]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to josh909

If anyone has good linkage to an Australian debunking of “piracy” costs or the claims that it funds teh terrorismz, do let me know.

via Twitter Web Client

Mon plan: Write about claimed cost of DVD piracy http://is.gd/6GA8; sort out project timelines; tackle over-full inboxen.

@pixel8ed The Renew Newcastle art project is at http://renewnewcastle.org … from last night’s wonderful conversation.

@garthk It’s the ABC rather than commercial radio, thankfully, but still a continuous prattle of vouces first thing in the morning. Why?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

Emerges. Sitting on the deck listening to birds and (so far) distant heavy jets. Why is the woman next door inflicting herself with radio?

Ted Mulry Gang, “Darktown Strutters Ball”. http://is.gd/6LkP Losers.

@Darcy1968 Yes, the Golden Barley is a fine Art Deco pub. The front bar has old photos of pubs in the district too. Local history FTW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Darcy1968

@CameronCollie Sundays seem to be a good day for them though, so might organise one for next weekend.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CameronCollie

@CameronCollie I was toying with the idea of an impromptu “Stilgherrian Live” for today, but decided to write http://is.gd/6KUd instead.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CameronCollie

OH: “Do you like the Little River Band? They’re the Australian Eagles.” Now I know why I don’t like them.

via Twitter Web Client

Golden Barley Hotel. Coopers Ale. Nasty barbecue crisps. Aha’s “Take On Me”. http://is.gd/6LiX Locals playing pool. Yes, we have pub!

via Twitter Web Client

@Darcy1968 Thank you, that’s 3 mentions of the Golden Barley. My sauvignon blanc has run out, I am mobile. Can’t SMS, will report in soon.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Darcy1968

@docbaty The Sackvilles in Rozelle. Dont you mean the Salisbury, near Stanmore Station? ;) And yes, that could work.

@DavidFeng I must admit, I did like my feral goldfish avatar. He may return one day. “Vive les poissons rouges sauvages!”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DavidFeng

Irritated. I’d JUST opened all the websites with research for tomorrow’s article and was about to start writing when the horde descended.

via Twitter Web Client

My life is continually out of sync with the world. “They” want a rowdy Sunday to “party on”. I want quite times to relax after a hell week.

via Twitter Web Client

Damn I should have left home MUCH earlier and gone to… Balmain? Strathfield? Somewhere more than 5km away.

via Twitter Web Client

@RozP Exactly. If The Duke is almost full NOW and the Festival still hasn’t wrapped up, we are well and truly doomed.

via Twitter Web Client

@jennibeattie I’m non-smoker but lived with chain-smokers, can cope with carcinogens. If they plan to kill me they’re WAY back in the queue.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jennibeattie

@RozP Nah my guess is that the Alfred on Missenden Rd will still be too close, with everyone going back towards Glebe. My guess, anyway.

via Twitter Web Client

@jennibeattie The Huntsbury in Petersham is looking a good option, ta. The Duke is now loud, full of non-villagers. Where’s my pitchfork?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jennibeattie

@RozP The Golden Barley is looking an option, yes. This is where I need a decent live satellite feed. Why are Keyholes so expensive?

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Twitterverse, I now need a quiet pub outside the 2km kill zone of the Newtown Festival. I need not explain the “kill” part, no?

via Twitter Web Client

Enmore Rd has a stready stream of people heading West. With this quantity here already, the Warren View will soon be full too. Where to go?

via Twitter Web Client

5 mins ago The Duke’s front bar was empty. It’s now 3/4 full of sunburnt-looking folks from the Festival TALKING FAR TOO LOUDLY. [shatter]

via Twitter Web Client

@hollingsworth Not such a fan of Faheem’s. Their curries have less meat, more sauce and more oily bits than Tandoori Hut just down the road.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hollingsworth

Popping over to Enmore Rd to see if the pubs are relatively quiet, for a quiet read / sit / think / write. If not, I’ll go further afield.

I see the latest social engineering trick to get people to click on email links to malware is “President was shot in head”. They’re fast!

@limburger2001 “I thought you wrote ‘unwashed festival goers’ there for a second.” Well, yes, that’d be accurate too. ;)

RT @ApostrophePong: “Getting bored at Newtown Festival. Couldn’t find a new angle. am i not looking hard enough?” Hmmm… glad I didn’t go.
