RT @jasonlangenauer: If I may, I’d like to nominate @stilgherrian for leadership of the WA Liberals. I think he’s abundantly qualified.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Agreed @Warlach @ivovic Julian Morrow’s primary/secondary audience analysis is spot on. http://bit.ly/aiZhEd

via Twitter Web Client

Similarly @Warlach those who complain about TV or radio programs usually aren’t in the audience. Funny world.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Warlach: I find it hugely amusing that the people who have a go at me on Twitter usually don’t actually follow me.

@andrewdotnich Alas, your lickable wallpaper reference baffles me. I am moderately illiteraturate, as opposed to illiterate.

@SnarkyPlatypus @sophblack Sounds like a good name for a band. “Angry Virgins”. Kinda like Veruca Salt on a meth comedown.
