@DDsD If you want your nomination to count, it has to be at the website. ;) http://is.gd/tYC2

@martinmiles P J O’Rourke on “Q&A” is too late, yes. Nominations close 8.30pm Sydney time so I can prepare the program for 9.30pm.

@ScottRhodie Well, “Cnut of the Week” isn’t about being not-nice but about futilely holding back the tide of change. Still, so few…?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ScottRhodie

I’m surprised at how few nominations there are (so far) for “Cnut of the Week”. http://is.gd/tYC2 Less than 5.5 hours left! ;)

OK, so Wirecast has had H.264 and Ustream connectivity for a month now. http://is.gd/oZLE This could change “Stilgherrian Live” soon.

@andrewdotnich So, how come 16 OTHER people analyse me before I even see it? http://is.gd/u0uQ Who are they? Accurate? Um, sure… ;)

@captainfromCDU The number of nominations I get varies wildly, depending on the world’s mood. I do OK. ;)

@Yin_0x7f As a friend once said, “THIS is the easiest way to get the root password!” And then he held a pistol to my head.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to yinettesys

@Yin_0x7f I agree that “cyber” is a meaningless word in most contexts, but you’d limit it to an over-the-network attack, not cable cuts?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to yinettesys

@shermozle Oh yes1 That, too, is a PERFECT lair! http://is.gd/smO1 I think I seriously need to move house!

@SnarkyPlatypus How can you even think to remember the existence of such fucked-up music so early in the day?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Non, cela ne marche pas. Par ailleurs, une personne a été sérieusement penser Julie Bishop en tant que leader? Abrutis.

Apparently I showed a photo of Zac Efron instead of Ashton Kutcher, but then that proves my point that they’re all interchangeable muppets.

Emerges. But I’m not sure why. It hurts.

@Yin_0x7f Yes, “Pickle Surprise” is rather special. ;)

For those who missed it, “Stilgherrian Live” episode 44 is at http://is.gd/u4Tx but without the live chat.

@SnarkyPlatypus I think “Xantini” is one of the most beautiful words in the English language.

“Stilgherrian Live” starts in 30 minutes at http://stilgherrian.com/…, with plinkies starting in 20 minutes. Hope you can join me.

Wow, that teen skatergrrl is wearing an “Akira” hoodie. I’m not sure how I feel about that.

RT @lyndons: You may be interested: short audio clip from an interview we did in 1993 with Don Dunstan http://bit.ly/nZtq0

via Twitter Web Client

@Tagalongtess Indeed, Don Dunstan was to South Australia what Gough Whitlam was to Australia federally. T’was an amazing time.

via Twitter Web Client

Is that fact that I have personally confirmed that story both with the journalist and the rent boy count as “good” or “bad”?

via Twitter Web Client

@deswalsh Ah! I never managed to be served one of Don’s meals. But yes, his restaurant was VERY highly regarded. I’m envious, Sir!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deswalsh

@Skigod Then there’s the story of a certain journalist doing cocaine and sucking off a rent boy in the Speaker’s Chair in Parliament House.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Skigod

@jeffsonstein Doing vox pops I learned very quickly that the vast majority know and care NOTHING for what journalists think is important.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Speaking of King Cnut, only 90 minutes left to nominate your “Cnut of the Week” at http://is.gd/tYC2 Only website nominations count.

via Twitter Web Client

@Skigod Ah yes! Don Dunstan doing a King Cnut and holding back the “tidal wave”! Here’s Rex Jory’s version of the story: http://is.gd/u2Tu

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Skigod

For those who don’t know Don Dunstan, start with http://is.gd/u2RW and then try http://is.gd/u2Sk Lovely man, controversial politician.

via Twitter Web Client

@Skigod My most dangerous was “What do you think of former Premier Don Dunstan?” on 10th anniversary of his resignation! Still SO polarised!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Skigod

@scotartt This was for ABC Radio in about 1987. I did a vox pop every weekday morning for over a year.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt Sorry, 30% of the random people I interviewed in the street, specifically King William St, Adelaide, at 0845 on a weekday.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@EmperorNorton Well, we say “reshuffle” the cabinet ‘cos you don’t want to admit someone had to be fired. ;) Ah, perception!

@bengrubb I don’t think that “QLD government is FAIL” is particularly a revelation. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@SnarkyPlatypus You may be thinking of “The Cabinet of Dr Caligari”. Info at http://is.gd/u2Iz and movie at http://is.gd/u2IV

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

After a state cabinet reshuffle, I asked if they could name any of the old or new ministers. Only ~30% knew what “cabinet” meant.

via Twitter Web Client

@Skigod Yes, “readers probably don’t give a fuck” is probably the reality. I remember the vox pops I did years ago. They care not.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Skigod

@Skigod We’ll have to agree to disagree. I find that sort of self-promotion to be distasteful and distracting when it’s IN the story text.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Skigod

@bengrubb Actually it wasn’t @mumbrella this time though, yes, that is a rather frequent pattern in his writing. (Hi, Tim!)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

I’m getting sick of news stories which say “[Masthead] can reveal that…” If it’s news, it’s news. The story isn’t about your “revelation”.

via Twitter Web Client

@Yin_0x7f All my plans are good plans if not, im fact, perfect.

You also have just 3 hours to nominate a “Cnut of the Week” at http://is.gd/tYC2 Only website nominations count.

Remember, @Nickhodge’s “The Lost Uncles” at 8.30pm Sydney time at http://tinyurl.com/atnic… then “Stilgherrian Live” at 9.30pm.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. I’ll wander down to The Afternoon Office™ for a quick pint, before coming back to prepare for “Stilgherrian Live”.

via Twitter Web Client

@ElegSufficiency To be honest, until today I’ve been too tired to want to do anything. But, a stretch soon and then prepare for the program.

@cohen_sydney @WoollyMittens And, indeed, I already have a Vitamin D deficiency. Ah, yes, MOAR SUNLIGHT is called for!

@PaulHamon Yeah I’ve been fighting a nasty cold that’s doing the rounds. Not fun, but there you go.

@davesag No, not my birthday for another 15 days. That can’t be the explanation. Sigh.

Why is there a gnome with naked breasts on my desk? And a candle? Also, a cut-out of Oprah.
