ROFL! @ApostrophePong just asked me what I’m doing tonight. “WTF? Didn’t you know? I’M GOING TO SEE THE VERONICAS!” Memory loss FTL. :P

@firstdogonmoon You know it’s @SnarkyPlatypus’ birthday today? It WILL go to his head… and Les Veroniques will not save us.

@SnarkyPlatypus Is this you in today’s @firstdogonmoon cartoon? “The death of print media in the forest.” http://bit.ly/BwQa1 [Free.]

@jeamland Brumby & Co are capable of being Not Crap with help from that boutique outfit Google. ;)

@anthonybaxter Yes, yes, I know you built the goddam map! http://is.gd/k2Z You’re very, very, VERY special. [pats]

Dear Clients, when replying to email with a one-sentence reply, you don’t have to send everything we’ve ever sent you on that topic kthxbai.

“Interacting with Government: Australians’ use and satisfaction with e-government services 2008” http://is.gd/k2B9 [Not new, but new to me.]

via Twitter Web Client

@mediahunter Good point. AFAIK, Crikey has never run a piece about Bill Caralis’ radio empire. It’d be a fun story! [scribbles note to self]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mediahunter

RT @mediahunter: 27yo journalist with 12 days work experience “too old” & “too experienced” to work in radio. http://is.gd/k2qc

RT @dizzystuff: ATO lets you pay your taxes by Credit Card - 2 month trial: http://bit.ly/sM5Vu [Cool, can has FlyBuy points?]

RT @crikey_news: Fake Stephen Conroy leads the poll at 58% http://twtpoll.com/r/dge… Who should lead the LiberalPary?

via Twitter Web Client

@zhasper True, Facebook did return to their previous TOS. But there’s actually not a lot of difference.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jamezpolley

@ericscheid Disclosure: @CShawyer was PR for the “Media 09” thingo last week. I got a freebie media pass. That’s all (so far). Sadly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ericscheid

“Facebook terms of service compared with MySpace, Flickr, Picasa, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Twitter” http://is.gd/jJge Yes, Facebook’s worst.

via Twitter Web Client

@raena “Shonky ethics is hardly new on X” is true for all values of X. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to raena

@CShawyer Welcome to Twitter. Everyone, meet Caroline, a PR person in the ICT and Media industries who’s not totally evil. Probably.

via Twitter Web Client

@raena Not surprised the pimping happened, but a “cash for comment” style breach of ethics. Piss-poor that the YouTuber didn’t disclose.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to raena

Exhausted. Ears still ringing. This.Is. All. so. Wrong. [exit]

@ApostrophePong All that about Flash 10 talks about the beta. Not using the release version?

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Tried upgrading to Flash 10?

via Twitter Web Client

A meal and a walk later, I still have ringing in my ears from 1500 screeching 11yos. “Like The Wiggles on speed,” said the now-deaf doorman.

via Twitter Web Client

Yes, Angry Anderson singing with The Veronicas. I have independent witnesses. I was not hallucinating. Well, not that bit anyway.

via Twitter Web Client

The kids have no idea who he is but scream anyway.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, so Angry Anderson is joining The Veronicas on stage. Cognitive dissonance FTW.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPkatypus is pretending not to notice I saw him singing along before. Again.

via Twitter Web Client

Pheremones. All so wrong.

via Twitter Web Client

@johnhalton I’m trying really really hard not to think of the Meaning of any of this.

via Twitter Web Client

“I haven’t felt so much love in my life,” says non-Jess after pulling some random teengirl onto stage.

via Twitter Web Client

Jess introduces guitarist as “my future husband, well, one of the loves in my life”. Def the goer.

via Twitter Web Client

We’re getting serious. Guitarist has removed shirt. 9yos dance to “4ever”, a song about the joys of casual sex.

via Twitter Web Client

Les Veroniques must be classy: There’s a cello on stage.

via Twitter Web Client

These kids have all learned the Grammar of the Concert: Slow song = slow handwave in air with glostick.

via Twitter Web Client

Even with a very young crowd, there’s at least 50 Nokia Nseries or equiv recording this concert.

via Twitter Web Client

@R_Chirgwin Mix? Mix? There’s squealing and, somewhere in the distance, a band. And gin.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Yeah the blond one’s clearly more of a goer. Do they have, like, individual names?

via Twitter Web Client

Tip: Twibble can’t keep up with a high-volume Twitterstream. Slandr does.

via Twitter Web Client

@Dianne_ I don’t have Twitpic sorted, but the Platypus will post to Flickr later.

via Twitter Web Client

They ALL know the words. And so does @SnarkyPlatypus. He’s grinning immensely. Not squealing tho. Yet.

via Twitter Web Client

@JeremyJacobs We’re at The Veronicas concert at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. Almost sold out. 1500 people, mostly 11yo female.

via Twitter Web Client

I smell teen spirit. Wait. 9yo is teen, yeah?

via Twitter Web Client

Spanking has been mentioned.

via Twitter Web Client

@margb1509 This night of pseudo-sapphic pleasure is my birthday present for @SnarkyPlatypus.

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders Handy tip: For a gig with a “young” crowd, ignore theatre bar. Down a swifty at The Duke.

via Twitter Web Client

The squealing begins. Les Veroniques! Les Veroniques!

via Twitter Web Client

So, the Leb muscle boy says “Plenty of chicks.” I say, “But they’re all 11yo.” “Yeah, but the MILFs, bro!” Yes, he says, that’s his plan.

via Twitter Web Client

This is still the support, Metro Station, telling the 11yos they’re “sexy” and “beautiful”. SQUEAL! So wrong.

via Cloudhopper

@firstdogonmoon I should have been liveblogging, yes, but I’m recording some notes and video.

via Twitter Web Client

Do you know what 1500 x 11yo girls squealing sounds like? I do. Can has notch filter at 5kHz?

via Twitter Web Client

Time for a puick warmup cocktahl at The Sly Fox.

via Cloudhopper

Oui! Oui! C’est Les Veroniques!

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile to the Enmore Theatre. Can anyone guess why?

via Twitter Web Client

@MikeFitzAU No you’d be OK to RT me. Clive Hamilton doesn’t seem to notice the conversations happening about him. Oblivious, he is.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MikeFitzAU

@NewtonMark Hey, I can tweet AND enjoy the music. AND chew gum. AND masturb… Oh. Wait. No, that one only when Clive it watching.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

@derekbradley Does not a Blackberry Bold run Windows? Windows on a telephone, does not want kthxbai. ;) But yes a QWERTY keyboard is a MUST.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to derekbradley

I should have organised permission to liveblog from The Veronicas. Twitter from a phone is too hard. on the figers.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @crikey_news: Please welcome Crikey’s newest bloggers, Michael Gawenda and his dog, Rocky: http://is.gd/k4b3

via Twitter Web Client

@NewtonMark Bah! I may put plenty of tweets INTO Twitter, but it’s that evil @stephenfry who causes the load on the output side.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

@elerimai This is going to be such a cultural experience. There shall be suitable tweets. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to elerimai

@elerimai Oh dear. Check the poutiness. http://tinyurl.com/b2db6y We used to call them “hairdresser bands”.

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat Ah well, @ApostrophePong tries to pay as little attention as he can to my more disturbing traits. Who can blame him?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@ApostrophePong You can use “ass” as a substitute for “arse”, but not the other way around, Mr Donkey!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@elerimai I believe @SnarkyPlatypus described the support band, Metro Station, as “some useless one-hit wonder boy-band”. http://is.gd/k3AG

@fang I am here, ready to be your Skypebitch in your podcast about

@SnarkyPlatypus I think you quickly have a go at this Crikey competition. http://is.gd/kauk

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

OK, I’m now at the client site in Darlinghurst and will soon be attempting to be clever regarding Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service. Ahem.

@SnarkyPlatypus Les Veroniques chaque cure douloureuse. Elles sont miraculeux.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I think I’ve just discovered where hookers go once past their use-by date.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis en Croix de Roi. Il est… pas de mal.

via Twitter Web Client

@afficionados_hh Maybe if we aim not to build a third party but The First Party. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

(Adaptation for a politically more apathetic Australia would be needed.)

via Twitter Web Client

@afficionados_hh I suspect tools & techniques like th@bselfself used for The Obama could build a new org faster. “Former glory” = nostalgia.

via Twitter Web Client

@afficionados_hh You’re suggerting that “third” parties are always doomed to fail? So the only possibility is what we have? Seems wrong.

via Twitter Web Client

@steven_noble Join NSW ALP to fix it? Hmmm… You don’t build a Porsbhe by starting from a clapped-out Volkswagen.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. Enmore Rd / Newtown station / Kings Cross station / Darlinghurst.

via Twitter Web Client

@steven_noble Oh the Coalition is one constant behind-the-scenes squabble. As is the ALP. Everyone pretends to have identical views. Sheep.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to steven_noble

@steven_noble (You’re right, the communication platform is irrelevant. But Bernardi’s post is innocuous IMO. Someone must’ve sulked.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to steven_noble

@gakman @steven_noble And if you started sacking Coalition frontbenchers for infighting there’d be no-one left. ;) Not such a bad idea, tho.

via Twitter Web Client

@steven_noble Sen Bernardi’s post didn’t name names, just an opinion about how people should do politics. On that I agree. http://is.gd/k9Nh

via Twitter Web Client in reply to steven_noble

@GreenJ Sorry, which “psycho fuck” are you referring to?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@gakman Sorry, the correct URL for the GILF Granny Love Doll is event: http://bit.ly/YeQnI … my mistake.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gakman

Fri plan: At Darlinghurst client most of the day, solving a Windows VSS problem and other sysadmin tasks; some writing; evening unplanned.

For those who didn’t catch it yesterday, @TurnbullMalcolm sacked Sen Cory Bernardi from the front bench for a blog post. http://is.gd/k9DC

@bself Hi. Your presentation at in SYD was a highlight. My liveblog of the event is at http://is.gd/iWHM with more to follow soon.

@gakman I seriously did not need to know about the GILF Granny Love Doll. http://bit.ly/YeQn

@steven_lewis “You’re an out-of-touch prude.” Me? ME? A prude? Uhuh. Sure.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Rule17

Thanks for all the compliments from the folks who enjoyed me and @SnarkyPlatypus at The Veronicas last night. We’ll post something later.
