@SnarkyPlatypus Please stop stroking my t-bone.

I seem to have won the meat raffle.

I really do believe that @TheBloggess has just posted the best blog post in the history of blogging. http://tr.im/nvrK

@alixjasmine I don’t know WHAT it’s meant to be. To be honest, the photo makes it look like a roast chicken or something.

@neerav Please tell Marcus Westbury (@unsungsongs) that I still want to have his babies.

@deanlk @rbuerckner I only just discovered today that I’ll be in Canberra on 5/8, so plans can certainly be made.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

@trib @deanlk Well, I might also just take a day’s break or something and look at museums and stuff.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@deanlk If I can find a reason to be in CBR other than the one day for the conference on 5/8, then drinks/dinner are definitely on.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

Hmmm. 1645 ale; 1700 work; 1800+ gym. On a Friday night. Then bookkeeping on a long weekend. This is a fairly fucked-up chronology.

via Twitter Web Client

I’m speaking at the Walkley Public Affairs Convention in Canberra on Wed 5 August. Anything else bracketing that date I should know about?

via Twitter Web Client

Having a quiet ale while I wait until 1700 AEST before cutting some website changes live and starting Google AdWords pointing to same.

via Twitter Web Client

@kategroom I believe also that animal fetuses counts as fish, and are eatable on Fridays, ‘cos they float in “water”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kategroom

@alixjasmine The laksa did indeed contain “something resembling prawns”, though not whales, @wolfcat. It’s fine, I’m just not a tofu fan.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alixjasmine

Since fucking when has tofu been a fish?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @rbuerckner: I agree @stilgherrian is pure. [Thank you!]

Time: “How Twitter Will Change the Way We Live” http://tr.im/nuLf Hat-tip @mpesce and others all at once.

via Twitter Web Client

First full media statement from Australia’s new defence minister, John Faulkner. http://is.gd/fp1L Hat-tip @abcnews.

via Twitter Web Client

After careful analysis, I have determined that it’s time for lunch. And errands.

via Twitter Web Client

A particularly feline dilemma: “Where do I sit next? In a brand new cardboard box? In a basket full of freshly-washed warmly-dried towels?”

via Twitter Web Client

Yay! This “shopped” problem hath a history. http://tr.im/nugU

via Twitter Web Client

RT @sboiling: “How IT can help save Africa” http://bit.ly/2nvNuY [Great piece, thanks Sean.]

via Twitter Web Client

Apollo doesn’t like the Lenovo netbook one bit: the cardboard box it came in is far too small to fit his 6.5kg self. Bloody cats.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @crikey_news: Crikey are [sic] 56 followers off 5000! … Lucky number 5000 will win some special Crikey swag! Spread it.

@nicster “Was it you [@mpesce] who convinced Christ to set up the account?” Ah, truly He is our Maste’s Master!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nicster

@R_Chirgwin OK, if you’re staying in that cottage http://tr.im/ntAq then I may have to kill you now. With respect.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to R_Chirgwin

@unsungsongs I am more than happy to support The Hipster as our new defence minister. ;) http://tr.im/nAmg Better photo: http://tr.im/nAY0

via Twitter Web Client in reply to unsungsongs

@scotartt Wrapping this, consider Kevin Kelly’s “1000 True Fans” idea. http://tr.im/nAUE He’s modified it since then, I gather.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt Fame… immortality… Yes, as I approach the end of ages starting with “4”, I think more about what I will leave for the world.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt Or, indeed, the other way around: Speak for free to get paid writing gigs. Or a mix. Like music, more profile = more money.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@ozjimbob I’m not sure that Hillsong would appreciate my musical “talent” enough to finance those other activities.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ozjimbob

@scotartt I am, however, poking at you with a pointed stick to see what happens. And interesting noises come out. Ahem.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt Hang on, you’ve lost me. I’m not sure that anything is stopping you critiquing the political economy of the industry. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt This conversation has triggered thoughts for a feature article about journalism. “Overabundant like a bad weed.” Thank you!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt So again, it’s back not to making music as such, but having (many?) others listening to it. For money. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@jasonwryan Occasionally I do think it’d be amusing if I were a Senator. But, which comment triggered you asking about me and politics?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jasonwryan

@scotartt What MAY disappear is the megaglobalsuperstar like U2, Madonna, Bono. Good riddance.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt And, therefore, recorded music will not disappear, but in fact be available in over-abundance. As it already is.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt And I say, the revenue model paid for the recording and distribution, not the music. Recording and distribution are now free.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt I contend many performers who say they want to make music, really want to make music in front of thousands for shitloads of money.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt But AC/DC chose a path many years ago, and worked, to build that back catalog, as a career. “It’s a long way to the top…”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

Is there anyone who’dll pay me a living wage to take drugs, watch porn and masturbate all day? Hey, it’s worth asking.

via Twitter Web Client

@scotartt There’s something in this about what people do in exchange for “stuff” from others in society, and what they do for pleasure.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt I wouldn’t configure your network for free, no. Family or friends, maybe. But, I wouldn’t expect you to perform for me for free.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt I will now annoy you more completely and say musicians (and artists generally) need to get over their sense of entitlement. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

RT @firstdogonmoon:You know Crikey readers voted [Faulkner] most sexy politician in 05. [I didn’t. But Crikey readers are pretty fucked up.]

via Twitter Web Client

@scotartt Perhaps, but words like “industry”, “money”, “career” (bingo!)… If people want to PLAY MUSIC there’s nothing stopping them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

RT @BernardKeane: Faulkner’s glasses are much bigger in real life.

via Twitter Web Client

@scotartt Besides, “the industry” doesn’t help/stop anyone making music, just making money. Performers should be honest about their goals.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt I think “was part of” the music industry is more accurate than “is”, but kinda my point.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@scotartt It may not have solutions, but at least it clarifies the question, from someone “the music industry” might listen to.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

Nice post on copyright and music http://tr.im/nAo8 by Chris Gilbey, promoter of AC/DC, INXS, The Saints, Keith Urban. http://tr.im/nAoQ

via Twitter Web Client

@BernardKeane @firstdogonmoon @penbo @Colgo @leighsales Note, Faulkner should be referred to as “The Hipster” now. http://tr.im/nAmg

via Twitter Web Client

New blog post: “John ‘The Hipster’ Faulker, defence minister” http://tr.im/nAmg Thanks for the inspiration, @unsungsongs!

via Twitter Web Client

@unsungsongs I think your focus on the mere practicalities of me having your babies blinds you to the cosmic possibilities. And the chips.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. With aches.

@andrewbarnett @gga T’was cheap-arse blue cheese but it did the job.
