RT @kimkevin: zomg “Ice Ice Baby” was the first hip hop single to top the Billboard charts. [Now you’re scaring me…]

via TweetDeck

Bah! I am more successful than Vanilla Ice, @johnb78! I have never resorted to home improvement TV for money.

via TweetDeck

“Robert Matthew Van Winkle, best known by his stage name Vanilla Ice, is an American rapper and home improvement television personality.”

via TweetDeck

Surely this has to be the most authentic expression of hip hop culture ever, yeah? http://youtu.be/rog8ou-Z…

via TweetDeck

@kimkevin Hah! Vanilla Ice? [smirks] I think this needs sharing…

via TweetDeck in reply to kimkevin

@kimkevin Early Australian hip hop had the same problem, guys trying to sound American rhyming about ghetto life from their comfy suburb.

via TweetDeck in reply to kimkevin

@kimkevin I just find it sad when to be popular, anywhere, people end up copying symbols from US media instead of celebrating their own.

via TweetDeck in reply to kimkevin

@kimkevin I probably won’t be able to explain my point in this medium. But no, never watched “Jersey Shore”. I watch little TV.

via TweetDeck in reply to kimkevin

I have opened a can of worms. Again.

via TweetDeck

@kimkevin My gripe is the fakeness of it, the inauthenticity. But they’re not alone in doing pretend-American, as if that’s the pinnacle.

via TweetDeck in reply to kimkevin

Imagining an episode of The Wire where the members of Big Bang try to score drugs at the low-rises.

via TweetDeck

@kimkevin The entire video is a lame imitation of an imagined black US “urban” culture by a bunch of primped middle-class Korean kids.

via TweetDeck in reply to kimkevin

@kimkevin Did you watch the video? I suspect not.

via TweetDeck in reply to kimkevin

Someone should tell the Koreans that basketball and palm-down hand gestures do not make you black. Or credible.

via TweetDeck

Oh in the name of all the gods, why have my Google searches led me to this lame-arsed Korean boy band? http://youtu.be/ZFLeN_jE…

RT @ApostrophePong: OK the password of Wi-Fi at The Australian Pub in Bangkok is…”Aussiepass”

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong Erm, it’s an Aussie theme pub in Sukhumvit, what did you expect? Do you have a camera?

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Sir Michael Parkinson’s Australia Day Address is an odd mix of cricket, Pax Britannia and astute observation. http://arseh.at/3nz

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong But I like “We do not charge for service. 7% will be added to your bill.” Huh?

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong I just translated the prices on this poster from THB to AUD and it’s not a bad deal! http://arseh.at/3nw

@dermottbanana I would not be averse to a plentiful supply of brown M&Ms.

via TweetDeck in reply to dermottbanana

While a Hemingway-style pub crawl sounds appealing, @dontsailbackwds, I’d be a bit whiffy after 11 days and wouldn’t get much work done.

via TweetDeck

At some point I really should arrange somewhere to live from 3 to 14 Feb.

via TweetDeck

If a budget accommodation place mentions that they have “special band tour packages” I should probably run away, right?

via TweetDeck

@alexonthebus Well Turnbull is pretty hot, obviously.

via TweetDeck in reply to alexonthebus

RT @jasonlangenauer: Oh, the guy and girl who look like homeless people, they’re Angus and Julia Stone, right?

via TweetDeck

I’m having a Sandie Shaw moment. In more ways than one. http://youtu.be/nrs8CgpH…

via TweetDeck

@TaraMacca I left Enmore Park about an hour ago.

via TweetDeck

It’s one of those word puzzles. Change CHILD to SKANK changing one article of clothing at a time.

via TweetDeck

@wheelyweb We’ll have to disagree. There’s a difference between sexy and skank, and I will continue to strongly discourage skank.

via TweetDeck in reply to wheelyweb

@rudeboyninja Yes, this is Enmore Park. Food’s good. Nice family vibe. Except for the 14yo hookers. I’ve departed, however.

via TweetDeck in reply to rudeboyninja

The Rolling Stones song, @TheMeanSplendor. “Paint it Black” it is. I knew I didn’t have it quite right.

via TweetDeck

The band is playing a zydeco version of “Painted Blank” [title?] in, I believe, Portuguese.

via TweetDeck

Judgemental? I’m not the one celebrating our national day dressed as a cheap hooker. Well, not yet

via TweetDeck

I wonder if any of these young women know that their denim shorts are actually allowed to extend further down their leg than their labia.

via TweetDeck

OH, 4yo girl: “It’s too hot. The icecream is melting. This whole thing is a waste of money.”

via TweetDeck

Needless to say, the man with the tie-dyed picnic blanket is mystified by the pub ATM.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; Enmore Park; People’s Democratic Republic of Marrickville Australia Day Party; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

It’s a family event, @johnvacy @DDrazic, I think I’ll wear pants. So relax, @rudeboyninja, your small child is safe. Well, from me.

via TweetDeck

I suppose I should eat something today. Maybe I’ll head over to Enmore Park for the Australia Day stuff. Maybe. Also, I should find pants.

Dear World, a poster with a grey background and numbers highlighted in yellow is NOT an infographic. It’s just a list.

@RealNickHodge I can usually get $100 an hour for that, sometimes more, depending on the quality of the wine.

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

He stands, bottle of wine in one hand, fly swat in the other, shouting, “Faster! Faster!”

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong Just go to http://google.com.au and you should see their logo. It’s a summery cheesy thing. http://arseh.at/3ng

Here in the People’s Democratic Republic of Marrickville, Australia Day celebrations in Enmore Park start at 2pm. http://arseh.at/3ne

Now selling on eBay: As-new Apple iPod Photo classic 4th-Gen 60GB + Griffin iTalk http://arseh.at/3nd

via TweetDeck

Laundry is soooooooo difficult. http://arseh.at/3nc

via TweetDeck

@iain_chalmers I hadn’t thought about the price I want. To be honest, I just want to see how it plays out on eBay. Experiments FTW!

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

@ForsakenDAemon Now I want to know why two people were looking for such an ancient Mac!

via TweetDeck in reply to ForsakenDAemon

The next item to go up will be an as-new iPod Photo 60GB, a warranty replacement that was never used. All original packaging.

via TweetDeck

@daev Well to judge from previous eBay sales, I could well get $150 to $200 for it. They retain some value, even after six years.

via TweetDeck in reply to daev

My old Apple PowerBook G4 is now listed for sale on eBay. This’ll be interesting. http://arseh.at/3nb

Actually @jcmurty, in 2008 @SnarkyPlatypus and I had already written a new national anthem. http://arseh.at/3na

New blog post: “Aussie Good News for Australia Day” http://arseh.at/3n9 HT @ApostrophePong

“Amateur astrologer discovers new constellation” http://arseh.at/3n7 HT and many thanks to @yeebok

via TweetDeck

While I did extol the Aussieness of http://arseh.at/3n6 yesterday, @jasonlangenauer, I’m not sure that I want one today. Scary, I know.

Anyone who wears the flag as an item of clothing or uses it as a beach towel deserves to be buried alive, @infoholic. Twice.

Wed plan, unordered: Continue clearing the house into eBay and Freecycle; maybe some writing; not melt. Unsure if I’ll do holidayish things.

via TweetDeck

Good morning, Australia. Please feel free to have a Day. Go on. You deserve it.
