Actually, @ApostrophePong’s shoot is… this is unheard of… AHEAD of schedule! By more than an hour!

via Twitter Web Client

@erkpod Yes, plenty of sitting around while @ApostrophePong and the DOP set up the next shot. The makeup artist has LOTS of waiting.

@erkpod I will say it’s interesting to see who can stay focussed on their job and whose attention wanders. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@erkpod Heh! Making movies is a slow and tedious business. And @ApostrophePong’s style has been described as “meticulous”.

Actor: “Did you just say ‘Action!’?” @ApostrophePong: “Well, I did, yes… but now I’m saying ‘Cut!’.” [smirks]

Woking up lunch for the cast and crew. Well, that boy there has the woks. I’m waiting in the sun, a lazy fat farang.

@craigthomler This is @ApostrphePong’s shot film, day two of two days of principal shooting. http://is.gd/2iOXM

The morning shoot has been done. We’re almost back at Enmore for the afternoon shoot.

@barrysaunders Are you taking umbrage with my Monday morning trolling? Sir, I must ask you to step outside!

@franksting “Raconteur”? Nah, I can’t afford enough alcohol to be a raconteur. Raccoon, perhaps though. I could do the eyes! (o) (o)

@timdunlop I’m always serious. 100% serious 100% of the time. Is this not obvious? But why are we asking atheists to wear badges again?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timdunlop

@timdunlop @FraggedMind So you want the Atheists to wear the hashtag? Perhaps ask Jews to wear too. Saves time.

Amused that this month I’ve had one conference name tag saying “journalist” and one saying “blogger”. Pigeonholes are for pigeons, folks.

Christ if I see another fucking Woodstock article I’ll stab someone. Moar Boomers noticing they’re closer to death so wallowing in the past.

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway the ads thing was an idle thought. Your comments have reinforced my view that’d it be more hassle and distraction than win.

RT @leadegroot: There are several .au book referral options - fishpond, thenile, seekbooks…

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Looking for more revenue? Isn’t there enough room in ur basement for a meth lab? [But that’d mean releasing the bears.]

via Twitter Web Client

@neerav Gut feeling is more time maintaining ad systems than value from it. At least linking to books etc I mention is useful for readers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@neerav … since the focus of my writing is not “make money from sheep” but “discuss things I’m interested in”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@neerav Your points are good, though I have no problem with adverts for pr0n as such. It all seems a time-wasting distraction for me…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@paulwallbank That’s precisely the “tacky” aspect. Adverts for lame shit. Though I’m not sure I’m a “tech blog”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

RT @paulwallbank: The downside with Google ads on tech blogs is the number of ads for dodgy spyware removers and registry cleaners…

via Twitter Web Client

@derekbradley It can indeed be both tacky and sensible at the same time. I’m not a fan of binary opposites. But that’s where my brain is.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to derekbradley

Also wondering whether that Australian book-referral thingo is live yet, or if pimping Amazon is still my only realistic option.

via Twitter Web Client

Wondering whether putting Google ads (or other ads) on my website would be tacky or sensible.

“Five Key Reasons Why Newspapers Are Failing” http://is.gd/2kb62 A few [gasp!] days old but still valid.

@thomasrdotorg If you’re rollerblading at 80yo I’m sure someone will push you under a bus before I do. Especially if lycra is involved.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thomasrdotorg

Mon plan: Mostly a day at home, quietly planning out the next few weeks, with luck some billable; gym with @SnarkyPlatypus, finally.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus I agree. People should indeed roller-skate to work. It makes it easier to push them in front of buses.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Je sais comment faire perdre le contrôle. Il n’est pas nécessaire d’imaginer un étrange voyage à travers le temps.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Je tiens il est samedi, mais il ne l’est pas. Et le monde est une moindre place pour cela.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

There is a time for everything. And the time now is the time to depart. [exit]

@helenperris This shoot was scheduled well. @ApostrophePong knew how much space to leave for setting up each scene. Not his first time. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to helenperris

Ah great, the crew has gone for dinner in Newtown and I can finally start my weeken… oh… bother.

via Twitter Web Client

Principal photography of @ApostrophePong’s film has been completed! Additional Dialog Recording (voiceovers) happens on Wednesday.

via Twitter Web Client

This is all a suitable distraction from the strange activities with that woman in the bathroom.

@mpesce Yes, Capitalism is like TOTALLY corrupt! I think I read it in “The Australian”!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@wolfcat Brides, yes. And borscht. And vodka. And driving tanks. And vilification of the corrupt system of capitalism.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

Ah! @R_Chirgwin says new “A Series of Tubes” podcast at http://is.gd/2jjDm “Very, very fast wireless, and Stil has fun at NICTA’s Techfest.”

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Possibly this is a suitable template for the Gin Bonds. http://is.gd/2jiig

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Issue gin bonds to raise some capital. [Now THAT’S what I can financial genius!]

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Alas, it cannot be MOAR GIN as we’ve gone over our alcomahol budget for this shoot.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Actor realises two different ways she may be killed or injured in this scene. Water. Electricity. Sharp objects. Night. What could go wrong?

via Twitter Web Client

Except… now that we’re ahead of schedule, we have to wait until sunset to shoot the nighttime scenes. Bother.
