OH: “Is that a mushroom? It looks like ET.” “More like Roy Schneider.” “Actually it looks like a panda.” “Take a photo for Facebook.”

via Cloudhopper

OH: Girl 1: “When am I going to the hairdressers?” Girl 2: “What do you mean?”

via Cloudhopper

OH: Her: “When was that? Australia Day?” Him: “Oh look it up on Facebook!”

@JonoH I am on the 5th layer of Hell, om the down escalator. But they make wonderful mojitos.

OH: “Apparrently 50 is the new 20. ‘Cougar Town’ is so good.”

via Cloudhopper

OH: “Today was Serbian, so it was all about the vodka. A Catholic christening is more about the money.”

via Cloudhopper

OH: “I only eat calamari. I’ve had smoked salmon like three times. It’s OK.”

via Cloudhopper

OH: “I couldn’t find a park so I just parked in a ‘no standing’ zone.”

via Cloudhopper

I just heard someone give directions in terms of a Red Room DVD machine. Civilisation is doomed.

via Cloudhopper

OH: “I’ve seen the Big Ram. Where is it? What’s between Sydney and Canberra? There was a dog on something too.”

via Cloudhopper

Watching the Sunday night Twitterstream always reminds me how very few people will ever deserve anything other than the B Ark.

via Cloudhopper

OH: Waiter: “So you want mojitos?” Customer: “No, menus.”

via Cloudhopper

@jasonlangenauer It’s not ro much what I’m doing with the cowbell but what I would do if there fnord was one. Also synchronicity.

via Twitter Web Client

Having a Special Cowbell Moment(tm).

via Cloudhopper

I feel like Margaret Mead.

via Cloudhopper

That was about a scene in a Disndy movie, BTW.

via Cloudhopper

OH: “As far as I can tell it’s some sort of fiery orifice that you stretch open with your hands.”

via Cloudhopper

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; @SnarkyPlatypus; gym; beyond. Careful: It’s Sunday, and I ‘m already disoriented by this change of schedule.

Participating in the Wine-Whine Merger. As are you. http://bit.ly/dalrwF

@Nickhodge It appears that my comments about the linguistics term “stylistics” are slightly out of date. http://bit.ly/bU7TMU

@misswired @SnarkyPlatypus The only mystery that “Today is Mardi Gras Fair Day” solves is “Where should I dump the sewage?”

via TweetDeck

@CastleJames Sorry? What was that about rangas on heat? Is there an explanatory diagram? Discount vouchers?

via TweetDeck in reply to CastleJames

Thanks all. I have removed “podcatcher” from The 9pm Edict’s explanatory page and written a generic “how to subscribe”. http://bit.ly/dn7LQJ

via TweetDeck

My question isn’t so much about technology @The_Rooster @Lyall @zhasper but language. The word “podcatcher” appears dead, no?

via TweetDeck

@pilgrimhawk “Shoulder day”? Oh dear, you sound far more systematic than we are. (@SnarkyPlatypus)

via TweetDeck

Well @kofeyh I want a sentence like “Subscribe to the podcast in your X.” Maybe “in your X” is redundant if “Subscribe” is linked to a feed.

via TweetDeck

Indeed @tobiasziegler I’m told iTunes is 50% of traffic. Podcasts can be subscribed to in RSS readers including browsers, email clients.

via TweetDeck

@pilgrimhawk @SnarkyPlatypus Yes, I think some sort of road moviesque excursion would fit well with the mood of the day!

via TweetDeck

Am I correct in thinking the word “podcatcher” has pretty much faded from use? But what is the equivalent now?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus We can combine physical exercise with an excursion. I can think of a number of possibilities.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @pilgrimhawk I think I detect an excursion being planned for today. I would not object…

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I am in studio mode now, so you’ll have to discuss the day’s affairs and generate your outrage without me. I’m busy.

via TweetDeck

RT @infoholic: Maybe Fairfax advertisers should learn from research on how users see web ads. http://bit.ly/9QcXM2 [Agreed. This ain’t new.]

via TweetDeck

“I have one word for the AFACT. Gutless.” http://bit.ly/d8gvPI

via TweetDeck

Yes @Serrels if we’re not learning something every day then we’re dead. Or, dare I say it, catching a commuter train.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer I know. I really must learn how to use this Twitter thing properly. And swim. I really should learn how to swim.

via TweetDeck

@Serrels Well, here’s the thing for both of us. We choose who we follow. Don’t like the tweets? Don’t follow. There’s our lesson for today.

via TweetDeck in reply to Serrels

Dear World, I do not give a flying fuck about how much you are or are not enjoying your train journey to work today. You chose your life.

via TweetDeck

I’m not interested in engaging in some arms race with their advertising technology, I just don’t visit the sites as much.

via TweetDeck

Actually @ddonahoo @downesy @Antipaganda @WarWraith I’m not interested in another thing to configure to filter out bits of websites.

via TweetDeck

Every time I visit a Fairfax site, I lose another 10% of my processor load. Dear Advertisers, not EVERYTHING has to animate.

@SnarkyPlatypus Si vos yeux sont la seule partie douloureuse de votre corps, votre nuit a été très différente de la mienne.

Mon plan: Complete “Patch Monday” podcast; local errands in the heat; produce the first “The 9pm Edict” podcast http://bit.ly/dn7LQJ

via TweetDeck

@trib Ah yes, the old one / a few / some / many / most / all distinction, which is often forgotten in media stories.

via TweetDeck in reply to trib

I see the Premier of NSW has dumped a Sydney transport plan. It must be a Monday. http://bit.ly/aCw8Ix

via TweetDeck

So that story is “off” in places @trib? Where? A man relates his personal experiences. http://bit.ly/9GVQjr

via TweetDeck

Note, Fairfax, I found that story because a friend mentioned it, not because I can be arsed with your over-cluttered home page.

via TweetDeck

“Yes Minister meets Alice in Wonderland” explains how public service really works. Sigh. http://bit.ly/9GVQjr HT @trib

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis vigilante et prête à affronter la journée occupée. Je vais même faire face à la chaleur! Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

And authenticity? Yeah, the SMH Editor in Chief’s office is swirly clouds with whooshy music! More money wasted, guys.

via TweetDeck

Excellent. SMH has actually managed to find new ways to shit me off with auto-play videos on the home page.

via TweetDeck

There’s a reason Madonna now has her touring company handle the distribution and marketing of her music. ;) @courtney_gibson

via TweetDeck

Exactly @courtney_gibson the music industry has made it impossible for artists to make decent money producing music using THEIR systems…

via TweetDeck

And Courtney Love said it all 10 years ago in this astounding speech. http://bit.ly/WpHZT

via TweetDeck

Lead singer of OK-Go makes kinda the same point about the lame music industry. http://nyti.ms/a42nNi HT @courtney_gibson

“Why Bowie and the Grateful Dead are the web’s real visionaries” by @jjn1 http://bit.ly/d6j7nh

Busy day tomorrow. Time to evaporate. If that’s possible in this humidity. [exit]

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus You’re useless. It WAS Roy Scheider, without an “n”. http://bit.ly/aL5ZNb

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

No @baethan none of those OH tweets were made up. They were as accurate as I could manage.

via TweetDeck

That was exhausting. I captured maybe 1 in 10 of comments.

via Cloudhopper

OH: “I went to Crows Nest Books today.” “What’s Crows Nest Books?” [Note: Crows Nest is a suburb.]
