@TonySearl Oh it’s not ME making the film, but @ApostrophePong. He’s doing a Masters of Digital Media at COFA.

@TonySearl No gnomes were harmed in the making of this film. Alas, the same cannot be said for the last “Stilgherrian Live”.

@firstdogonmoon Careful. Your dog NEEDS some of those orifices in order to function correctly.

@mrsnickhodge Correct, Gerard O’Dwyer won best actor for that role. http://is.gd/28Dq2 He’s out the back doing a script run-through now.

@TonySearl I dunno what hit our letterbox, but it’s been wobbly for ages. No-one heard a thump, it may be random collapsage.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TonySearl

Chatting with the neighbours about our randomly-demolished letterbox and supporting wall. Bricks everywhere FAIL.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis hachées par Pyne du caniche, comme un avertissement. Quelque part, une licorne est en train de mourir.

“Pyne warns Turnbull dissidents” http://tr.im/w270 A “warning” from Christopher Pyne? Oooooh… I’d be SO worried! LOL!

@kcarruthers Indeed, the Church did have Problems with Mr Gutenberg’s invention. Still do. They’re not the only channel for information.

@ADevenish … and free/portable audio/video might not be here yet, but it’s only a few years off. If they don’t face that NOW, screwed.

@ADevenish Oh “organising to pool resources” is always WIN. But the community broadcasting model is built around the scarcity of licences…

@SnarkyPlatypus Je pense que vous devez mettre à jour la qualité de vous hallucinations. Je sais que ce n’est que lundi…

@ADevenish This is serious business. I don’t know how you can laugh at @TheBloggess’ posts. http://is.gd/29zVV You’re a cruel man.

@SnarkyPlatypus Elle commence à nouveau. Une autre fois dans le cycle. Elle est interminable. Et vous?

@GreenJ Do you ever get the feeling that NSW politics is just the same stories repeated over and over? You do know what “NSW” is, yeah?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@MacYourselfhome Well, “perfect sense” provided you can translate it from managementese.

via Twitter Web Client

Compared with AP’s fuckwittery, Thomson Reuters’ Chris Ahearn makes perfect sense. http://is.gd/294oC Can someone read it aloud to Rupert?

I’m thinking the word “nocuous” needs to be used more.

@plasmaegg Correct, I do love this new diet http://bit.ly/OLyoC Note, video also has gratuitous pseudo-sapphism FTW!

@piawaugh I love the use of nanobots instead of going to the gym too. Hang on. No, not “nanobots”. What’s that word? Oh, yeah. “Vodka”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

Oh dear. I appear to be channelling @mpesce again.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Need a speech for tomorrow? Just re-hash one of my rants from “Stilgherrian Live”. Or something about Christopher Pyne.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ragnarok1971 I think it’s quite an adequate ferret, and any latent badgeriness is in your mind.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

@mpesce Is there a news story about Christopher Pyne AGAIN?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@michaelmeloni That’s wonderful. I have changed my avatar especially for you.

@michaelmeloni Hello. Will you be my friend?

@SnarkyPlatypus If “pigs” is the sekrit codeword, then this video illustrates the only possible outcome. http://is.gd/28PGN

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m thinking I should choose a Hunter S Thompson quote each morning, and adopt its wisdom into my life thereafter. Daily.
