@kcarruthers Well, to turn Bono into jerky, you’d only have to add the “y”. ;) But I have no beef with him personally. Har har.

@scotartt True, the portrayal of Sol Trujillo as a cartoon Mexican was always lazy and unimaginative IMO.

@ApostrophePong @kcarruthers How about we feed Bono to the starving Africans? His ego’s more than 1000 daily requirements.

Wed plan: Desk day at home, some writing but an awful lot of bookkeeping catch-up that was meant to happen yesterday; 1800 SEKRIT drinks.

@sylmobile @viveka As it happens, I like to think my essays are my best writing. A gnome-oriented one is almost done.

@barrysaunders “The Frankfurt School… of neo-Marxist critical theory”? There’s not enough vodka in the world to endure that!

@kcarruthers Too late. That table of students has gone. Even the cute one. No stamina.

@katska Chomsky’s 1950s linguistic work on generative grammars was groundbreaking. Respect. His political frames, however, are way dated.

@barrysaunders I suspect I should be glad that I’ve never even heard of Adorno and Horkheimer. Is that correct?

I’ve finished drafting my response to The Gnome Issue, but will post tomorrow or later once I’ve slept on it and added linkage and pictures.

Oh God. The students at the next table are debating issues from Noam Chomsky’s “Manufacturing Consent”. IT’S 2009, PEOPLE!

@sleemol Examples are upstairs bars empty during the day, organisations I’m connected with.

@sleemol Yes, I have a couple SEKRIT spots which are perfect for writing.

@mgherman Not hiding under the Westin, no, but that’s a good theory.

My other SEKRIT city hidey-hole is filling up with dull corporate folks discussing their iPhones and middle management. Time to move.

@NewtonMark @mpesce It’s not just teens who are fluid in their conversations across media. I do it myself. And I’m no teen.

@vealmince This was an adequate goat curry in the CBD. I haven’t really come across any especially wond’rous goat. Yet.
