@philsweeney If iPlayer does nothing but reduce the amount of car racing in the world then it will have repaid its cost a thousandfold.

Waiting for the codeine to work.

Another compelling feature on the disintegration of Detroit. But, “middle class”? http://arseh.at/1oz

“The Making of Nam Tok” has begun. Apparently network TV now makes entire programs out of this king of thing.

via TweetDeck

Home, and various missions have been accomplished.

via TweetDeck

OH: “The Trans-Siberian Railway introduced frogs right through the area. It was pretty much over after that.”

via TweetDeck

Pondering. Partly they’re ponderings ‘pon Passion Pop, but there are parallel ponderings ‘pon plans for porcine provisions.

via TweetDeck

RT @Nickhodge: Note, there is no flashing in this newsletter due to draconian corporate policies. [I feel cheated.]

via TweetDeck

@MSAU “Our latest flash is now available”? http://bit.ly/a7IPH6 Surely you mean an silverlight?

via TweetDeck in reply to MSAU

“Can Passion Pop make a comeback?” Had it ever gone away? http://arseh.at/1ov HT @theburgerman Ping @SnarkyPlatypus

Earworm time! Some drab mid-tempo dross from Ian Moss! “Tucker’s Daughter”! http://youtu.be/FKEIQQs6…

BBC iPlayer goes international next year, either fee- or ad-supported. That’ll change a few things. http://arseh.at/1ot HT @wolfcat

via TweetDeck

@timhollo @NineSortJam I am not going in either of those directions!

via TweetDeck

@davidjcampbell It’s probably an Adelaide thing. Echoes of a disturbed past. I shan’t provide further details.

via TweetDeck in reply to davidjcampbell

$11 a kilogram is a fairly reasonable price, I’d have thought.

via TweetDeck

That young man, as well as the people around him, would be better served if his tight cut-off shorts were less tight. Wombats, sack etc.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Why are there always stairs involved?”

via TweetDeck

Why aren’t Hi-5 colour-coded properly, like The Wiggles and Teletubbies are?

via TweetDeck

The rain begins in Newtown.

via TweetDeck

Anyway, if it’s as dreadful as people are making out it’ll make a great blog post or five.

via TweetDeck

But I love you all.

via TweetDeck

I do love Twitter. Just mention flying anywhere and the stories flood out. IT’S TERRIBLE YOU WILL NEED DRUGS YOU WILL DIE!!!!!1!!!!!!111!

via TweetDeck

I’d be quite happy to fly an A380, @gikku, even one with THOSE engines… because they’ve all just been checked.

via TweetDeck

The United Airlines hell stories roll in! I should say, someone else is booking / paying. This return flight is costing nearly AUD 2500.

via TweetDeck

I am flying cattle class @Nickhodge departing Sun 5 Dec 1625. I daresay flights are kinda full, looking at the pricing.

via TweetDeck

I have pressed a button that sets in train a sequence of events which will result in my flying United SYD-SFO.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce “The Soul of Web 2.0”? As in, “The Elegance of NSW Labor”? “The Wit and Wisdom of Richard Wilkins”?

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. That consensus formed quickly. Nearer Aeroflot, worse customer service and low RI. “A 10-20 yr time machine.”

via TweetDeck

So on a scale of Emirates to Aeroflot, where does United Airlines sit?

via TweetDeck

I do know someone who engages in conversation with brands: that mentally ill guy who talks to soup packets.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Well it’s not MY library. And it’s not a library as such. But I am reading quietly, ergo it is a library. I have a lair.

via TweetDeck

“Fairfax plans fundamental shift from print future”: @MargaretSimons in Crikey. Fairfax AGM tomorrow. http://arseh.at/1ol

Wed plan, additional: Continue reading all the stuff I have to read, while this cool breeze wafts through the library; put the bins out.

Transcript / audio of Brian Loughnane’s address to National Press Club on 2010 election: http://arseh.at/1ok HT @mfarnsworth

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Careful, that’s close to sacrilege.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I will rely upon Crikey’s well-planned recording techniques and listen to the discussion later. I must enjoy this day while I can.

via TweetDeck

@sophblack Well, I hope your understanding manages to intersect with unfolding reality at some convenient point.

via TweetDeck in reply to sophblack

I’ve been watching the Sex Party’s ad for the Victorian elections http://arseh.at/1oi and it made my brain go funny.

via TweetDeck

@BernardKeane @sophblack Do you have someone arranged to recordify it for the podcastification thereof?

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@GeordieGuy A random webinar sounds like a special kind of hell. Widgetcorp quarter earnings meetings FTL.

via TweetDeck in reply to GordyPls

I have been reliably informed that the Crikey thing today is NOT a “webinar”. This is good. But the “join webinar” button now confuses me.

via TweetDeck

@OhCrap The radar seems to show some potential story goodness up your way. Good luck!

via TweetDeck in reply to OhCrap

I do so hope the thunderstorms in the Blue Mountains and near Appin are a sign that we’ll get another decent storm in inner Sydney today.

via TweetDeck

The question is, can I be bothered going home to where the bandwidth and my headphones are?

via TweetDeck

Crikey “Taking Back Our Politics” webinar [ugh!] is 3pm AEDT. Malcolm Fraser, Geoff Gallop, @BernardKeane, @sophblack http://arseh.at/1og

@jonoabroad @ApostrophePong Absolutely! Ground then toasted rice is a key flavour of larb. Westernised places often leave it out. Wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad I nhave no idea what the ground rice is for. @ApostrophePong does. Maybe it’s for larb.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

If you were to watch “Ellen” right now, you would see a line of almost-identical tanned muscle men with their shirts off. For some reason.

via TweetDeck

@dr_nic Yep, I’ve eaten at Pho Sure a couple of times. The good is fine, though it’s a bit bleak environmentally. An eat-and-run place.

via TweetDeck in reply to dr_nic

For some reason the search “cleanse with fire” is in the drop-down thingy in my web browser.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Enmore Rd; pho-eating; errand to King St; return home for the afternoon’s drudgery and, with luck, some wit.

If types missed it, I interviewed the new Aust Information Commissioner for “Patch Monday” http://arseh.at/1l6

Victorian Premier plans to ignore tech evaluation procedures, buy iPads for doctors. http://arseh.at/1o9

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong I will cover the partly-ground rice to prevent it becoming a feline playground. If I grind it I will ruin it.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

US begins first piracy trial in 200 years. http://arseh.at/1o4 [Actual piracy, not copyright infringement.]

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong Should I be doing something with this ground rice? [Question not related to previous tweets.]

via TweetDeck

Is there such a thing as “ironic irrigation”?

via TweetDeck

I probably should’ve had my wee before calling this customer service line.

via TweetDeck

@thewetmale Wait? My problem is that I can type quickly? This internet thing truly is a pile of crap!

Wed plan: Gentle desk morning; lunch & errands; 1500 Crikey webinar [ugh!] “Taking Back Our Politics” http://arseh.at/1ns ; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

RT @kathoc: It was not missing the semi-colon: it was absorbed in to the link that now doesn’t work. [True. Let me fix that.]

via TweetDeck

OH: “Wombat touch?”

via TweetDeck

That my previous tweet is, arguably, missing a semi-colon perturbs me. Or maybe it’s the insomnia.

Pleased with the dialog emerging on my “Senate to re-open Bloggers versus Journalists” http://arseh.at/1kc

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je trouve votre nouvelle relation un peu effrayant. Les médicaments peuvent être nécessaires. Et vous?
