@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis plein de nouilles, et le vendredi progresse de manière satisfaisante. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The question is, though, how will I afford all that new leatherwear by August?

New blog post: “Podcast masterclass at Walkley Media Conference” http://bit.ly/bb7iUX

@tealou Oh I wouldn’t want as much as 70%. Maybe just 65%.

via TweetDeck

@tealou That was quick! :) I’ll leave you and @jeamland to talk, I was just being a pimp. It’ a living…

via TweetDeck

Like voting below the line? Can do web design? Wanna help @jeamland make http://bit.ly/dp9TQ9 look moar prettier? ead http://bit.ly/9R0BJD

RT @BernardKeane: is the election hashtag. It’s ALWAYS been the election hasthtag. I ought to know. I’ve always been here.

@Yin_Izanami Stop eating those cables, they’re toxic.

@jonoabroad It’s no big deal, it’s just finding the right balance between things that are fun to do and things that pay the bills.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

Wondering about people who imagine their life revolves around what may or may not be wrong with their iPhone.

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad Yes, I should do a “donate to this episode” PayPal button or something. Thoughts gurgle…

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

If my mentions of “The 9pm Edict” podcast are new to you, try http://bit.ly/9Zgaep

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad Look, I love the thought, but “Karmic sponsorship” doesn’t pay the rent or electricity bills.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Is there a nice, quietish bar in Melb CBD or close by on Fri night? Not in mood for office workers.

via TweetDeck

Editors never phone back when they say they will. Not a complaint, just an observation.

via TweetDeck

@firstdogonmoon Nevertheless, it still sounds a bit too sticky-fluid for me. Nice ‘toon tho. Love the code words.

via TweetDeck in reply to firstdogonmoon

Well, that’s one sponsor already, even before I’ve defined the deal. And I didn’t have to put out. What’s wrong with the rest of you?

via TweetDeck

@firstdogonmoon I don’t think “secretion” means what you think it does. http://bit.ly/arWKiK

Thanks to completely non-PR-driven IT journalism, I have now booked in a nice series of free lunches. I mean, fuck ethics.

via TweetDeck

@kcarruthers Drinking games will probably only work if it’s a live show, not pre-recorded. I shall ponder.

via TweetDeck in reply to kcarruthers

RT @jasonlangenauer: Lib [Liberal Party] males are invariably dud roots. [Yes, that’s been my experience too.]

via TweetDeck

@franksting Deeply off the record, can I talk to you privately about soft fruit?

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ll have you know I am NOT drinking Breezers. I ceased being a 17yo uni student some 10 or 11 years ago.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @theburgerman: I for one would like to see real election stunts. Y’know, dirtbikes, explosions… http://youtu.be/6G6Xgzht…

via TweetDeck

Does anyone want to sponsor my “The 9pm Edict” podcast thru the election campaign? I put out.

via TweetDeck

O hai. @TonyAbbottMHR has launched a new website. http://bit.ly/4n4ULS Includes bonus Julie Bishop death stare pic in the carousel.

via TweetDeck

NO I HAVE NOT YET FINISHED THIS BOTTLE GO AWAY BAR WENCH!

via TweetDeck

@retrogrrl @franksting Huh? “Pleasure filled capsicum”? What’s WRONG with you people?

via TweetDeck

Deeply off the record, apparently I am NOT a journalist after all. http://bit.ly/cqyGKa

via TweetDeck

Whew! At least one option for the “Patch Monday” podcast has been nearly-organised. Friday can end in some sort of pleasure-filled escapism.

via TweetDeck

Getting sick of every new service name starting with “My”. You are not the centre of the universe.

via TweetDeck

@tommyjudd The possibly sad fact is, whatever the message, production quality affects whether people pass on the link. This is the world.

via TweetDeck in reply to tommyjudd

True @TheRuffStuff it could still be 21 August. Or any of the other days on @AntonyGreenABC’s list. http://bit.ly/dukV2M

via TweetDeck

@elerimai There’s a difference between tipping a date and reporting it as bound to happen. The ABC is being very definite about it.

via TweetDeck in reply to elerimai

Of course, if @JuliaGillard doesn’t call an election tomorrow for 28 August, I will then assume everyone in the media is a lying bastard.

via TweetDeck

So this election thing… Do you think there might be some news stories in it?

via TweetDeck

@KyBusiness Oh, I mis-spoke. The Macquarie Dictionary reckons it’s spelt “hoick”. You learn something every day…

via TweetDeck in reply to KyBusiness

@KyBusiness I commend you on using the wonderful word “hoik”, which for some reason is NOT in the Macquarie. Dictionary, not Bank.

via TweetDeck in reply to KyBusiness

@keithdon Hah! Great that you turned it around so fast. Personally, I’d have gone shorter, faster. YMMV, of course.

via TweetDeck in reply to keithdon

@keithdon O hai! I love how people notice what you say on the internets. ;) When did you shoot the Tim Costello ad?

via TweetDeck in reply to keithdon

Shiraz grenache tempranillo. Aren’t they all such pleasant words?

via TweetDeck

@cafedave Well I’m guessing about cards, large or small. But he’s looking off-camera, and eye contact was key to @OldSpice originals.

via TweetDeck in reply to cafedave

@grum It DID go forever. 1 min 37 sec. Way way way too long. Felt longer due to slow pace.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to grum

@cafedave Costello IS using cue cards. That’s why he’s looking to camera right and not down the lens. That’s the problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to cafedave

Pedants will notice that I completely misused the word “whence” just then. Well aren’t you clever.

via TweetDeck

Moving forward: Enmore Rd; King St errand; somewhere quiet from whence to arrange the universe; TGIF.

via TweetDeck

Tim Costello’s parody of @OldSpice ads would’ve been a lot better if he’d had an on-camera autocue http://bit.ly/dicCUA

via TweetDeck

@mcannonbrookes Well, if you’re up for chatting with @renailemay for the Patch Monday podcast, I’m sure we can arrange a time… ;)

via TweetDeck

Waiting for a backup to finish so I can go on errands, and also still thinking about “Patch Monday” topics.

via TweetDeck

@renailemay Well if you’re up for the discussion, I can put it to Mr Cannon-Brookes. It’ll be safe, you won’t be in the same room. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to renailemay

@daveoflynn I think they have telephones and the internet in the US now, so it may not be that tricky.

via TweetDeck in reply to daveoflynn

Heh! Maybe I should get @renailemay and Mike Cannon-Brookes into a panel discussion… ;) @jonoabroad @kristoforlawson

via TweetDeck

Still not sure what to do for the “Patch Monday” podcast. Is Atlassian getting USD 60M and venture capital stuff of interest? If not, what?

via TweetDeck

@skribe I must admit I haven’t really explored the BBC’s redesign yet. That blog post was a reminder to do so, for me.

via TweetDeck in reply to skribe

Actually, it works much better in German. I hereby coin: Arschmützenklatsch!

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Soyez prudent! Il ya beaucoup de spéculations au sujet de la renarde céleste. Beaucoup d’analyses du chapeau âne! Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

It would be pre-planned, @Zombie_Plan. “Whoever calls” is talkback, needs to be live plus extra logistics. Though maybe as a weekly thing…

via TweetDeck

Thinking that “The 9pm edict” could include an interview /guest whinger each episode. What think ye?

via TweetDeck

“FAQ: Australian federal election 2010 explained”, news.com.au version http://bit.ly/a2RXR5 HT @cowspanker

via TweetDeck

Sat plan: AM writing, watching, recording and deciding what “The 9pm Edict” will do; PM a walk and a think, probably.

via TweetDeck

Moving forward into the office.

via TweetDeck

ABC Campaign Pulse’s clock has already decided the election is 28 August, so bugger the Governor-General, eh?

@harleyd Indeed, it’s amazing how THE BIGGEST DISASTER IN THE WORLD slips off page 1 when there’s gossip to be spread instead.

“Does rehab create addiction?” (extract from TIME article) http://bit.ly/cnVYAY

And here’s a website to help explain http://www.stfu.se/

via TweetDeck

Dear Media, until you KNOW the election date, please STFU about it and report some real events, here and overseas.

via TweetDeck

Emerges. I severe pain. Back. Ouch. Don’t move.

via TweetDeck

Maybe that’s enough creativity for one night.

via TweetDeck

Hang on. I’ve just got an idea for an iPhone app with @TonyAbbottMHR and Speedos and special touch interface gestures…

via TweetDeck

Anything involving Bishops and Breasts is automatically funny, right? And better than Keith Windschuttle’s “history”.

via TweetDeck

Isn’t there some iPhone app that does wiggly-breast movement stuff? Can’t we put Julie Bishop into that? Or Bronwyn Bishop?

via TweetDeck

So let me get this right, YOU pay THEM to receive their political propaganda? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

via TweetDeck

“For less than the price of a cup of coffee you can get access to Liberal News.” http://bit.ly/bBt6Co

“Australian Liberal News provides a window to the thoughts and public announcements of the Liberal Party of Australia.”

via TweetDeck

What sort of gullible arsehat buys the first run of ANYTHING off the production line, sight unseen, anyway? Pig, poke, etc.

via TweetDeck

I also don’t use beta software, preferring to wait until, you know, it fucking well works.

via TweetDeck

And no, I had not seen those apps because [gasp!] I don’t have an iPhone and yet my life is quite OK.

via TweetDeck

Oh dear @purserj there’s a @TurnbullMalcolm iPhone app? And @einspruch an Australian Liberal News app? http://bit.ly/caFN4K WTF FOR?

via TweetDeck

The question is, “Which political party will be the first arsehat to have their own iPhone app?” I’ll be laughing so fuckin’ hard!

via TweetDeck

I shouldn’t have to download another Thing to interact with you.

via TweetDeck

Same goes for Android apps.

via TweetDeck

Also, I agree with whoever said the other day that anyone who needs an iPhone app just hasn’t designed their website properly.

via TweetDeck

I think I might add iPhone to TweetDeck’s global filter.

via TweetDeck

@miscdebris “Little Britain” was catchphrase comedy, the same joke repeated every week. Waste of space.

via TweetDeck in reply to miscdebris

@bigjsl Well, what anyone says in public IS media now. Welcome to the 21st Century.

via TweetDeck in reply to bigjsl

“The Catherine Tate Show” is rather disappointing IMO. Some all-too-obvious jokes. YMMV. If you’re stupid, anyway.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems Yes. “Live” can get better. It can be spelt correctly.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@SnarkyPlatypus @Nickhodge I’ve mixed Latin and Greek and it was a rather fun night. Hang on.
