The Cat Empire exists so that readers of SHM’s “Spectrum” can imagine they’re “multicultural” without any kind of actual conceptual effort.

@baethan The Cat Empire? The “singer” can sing, he just whines tunelessly. Faux cultural warriors with a repetitive back-beat.

@pressdarling @SnarkyPlatypus The Cat Empire are not a bit shit, they are a LOT shit. http://bit.ly/8spXA3

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis fascinée par les merveilles de la nature. Y at-il une chanson appropriée?

I’ve just been watching our local currawongs trying to explain to their fledglings where we leave food. The fledglings are a bit ueless.

@SnarkyPlatypus The radar shows a rain band approaching, maybe 60 to 75 minutes away. http://bit.ly/ziYY6

It’s 2230. What sort of wanker is standing outside a nightclub, on the phone, loudly discussing someone’s advertising strategy?

via Cloudhopper

A fucking pox upon them, and anyone who has ever danced while any of their “songs” have ever been performed or played anywhere ever.

via Cloudhopper

I will say it again, the “band” The Cat Empire is a fucking travesty, a complete fraud on the musical landscape. They shall burn. A pox.

Mobile (ish): Enmore Rd (again); King st (again); gym; dinner; etc. Attention very limited.

@bradatslice Oh you should have said hi, I was just catching up on email and stuff.

@eddit0r I don’t think I could handle a full hundred of those little marsupials in a month. They seem rather perky.

I can never manage to type “quota” correctly the first time. So sad.

via Twitter Web Client

Hah! Christmas BitTorrent Bonus! @iiNet increases my quote from 70GB to 100GB/month. I mean, um, I could send so much email!

@RantRotAndRuin Oh I wasn’t questioning universal bisexuality. I just found it a cute turn of phrase.

@earleyedition Consider the Avenging Narwhal Play Set. http://bit.ly/4BHwiw It’s worth reading the fine print.

I have found a spot with cool drinks and a view. I must say, the Rootability Index is reasonably adequate today.

via Twitter Web Client

This would all be much easier if reindeers had longer tails.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; various little errands; somewhere cool and quiet to complete the day’s work.

@crispin_harris Those who benefit from the status quo rely on everyone’s apathy and inability to act for the long term.

@crispin_harris As long a people pre-decide the system cannot be changed, the system cannot be changed. :)

@firstdogonmoon And Tiwtter loves the smell of you in the morning. Especially after a long, humid summer’s night.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@crispin_harris There are choices other than Labor and Liberal. If enough people actually CHOOSE to not perpetuate the 2-party system…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crispin_harris

@vealmince Agreed. Much of the discussion opposing censorship has been preaching to the choir. A lack of strategy does show.

@kathoc repeats “clean feed” meme. Evokes “Internet is dirty” frame. Brands opponents dirty. Only pornographers oppose clean.

@Warlach So do all your t-shirts read “Team Goatse”?

@earleyedition I’ve been flipping my avatar between the seagull and the narwhal and an assortment of other critters. Today’s a narwhal day.

@cameronreilly Thank you. My “magic evidential fairy dust” seems to have struck a chord. http://bit.ly/7Xpy3u

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, I’m not just an Internet celebrity, I’m a Twitter celebrity. Gawd. I should get a real job.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Oh dear. I have been RTd and quoted so much my @replies stream will take a while to sort through. Here we go…

RT @Cacotopos: Seriously want to create a black market for Cat Empire? Kids will be playing bursts in shadowy corners from illicit iPods.

@SnarkyPlatypus Yat-il un motif de votre tête à la souffrance?

Now $44 million on a compulsory filter to prevent children hearing The Cat Empire, THAT I would support.

@thebankchannel “Mainstream alternativism” is indeed a perfect term for it, thank you!

RT @ourmancanberra: Now there’s a new question for the citizenship test. How to tell the difference between a currawong and a magpie. [Yes.]

@salmonmoose I was still going on about The Cat Empire because people asked questions and I am, as always, helpful and considerate.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to salmonmoose

@BernardKeane Currawongs are marvellous! Smart, beautiful birds! We have a tribe of them in our street, aone family in a tree nearby.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

@baethan Needless to say, I meant “can’t sing” just before. In the names of all the gods, he is SO truly shite!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to baethan

Don’t drown a cat in a brick-weighted sack: it could be used for The Cat Empire instead.
