RT @franksting: @bgosford fuck off maggot [Oh we are beyond Shakespeare now. This is Hemingway!]

via TweetDeck

@franksting Shakespeare is nothing but sex between the rich and powerful. And a few shitty soppy poems written by Marlowe for a bet.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

It’s not every day you see phrases like “the dignity of sloth sex”.

via TweetDeck

I will say that a Google Images search for “sloth sex” is remarkably disappointing.

via TweetDeck

Ride that sloth, Hyacinth!

via TweetDeck

RT @AlbionLoveDen: Jeanette Howard, in the den with a sloth. [Presumably the sloth would be on the bottom?]

via TweetDeck

RT @franksting: Keep it up scumbag umpire. If the maggot asked for your balls you’d give it to the shit. [Yay. I mean, bugger Shakespeare!]

via TweetDeck

@firstdogonmoon It’s best not to even think about let alone draw a diagram.

via TweetDeck

It’s kinda like arithmetic. Sir Robert Menzies + Wildebeest + 16mm camera = Joy.

via TweetDeck

RT @moldor: Oh, I just thought of the Ranga and Abbott… Ewwwwwwwwww [I’ve a theory that as backbenchers… um… never mind.]

via TweetDeck

Oh FFS if we can’t imagine former prime ministers having sex with animals in front of a mirror then life is not worth living.

via TweetDeck

Here we go. Senator Nick Xenophon and his Policy Goat. Friendly, aren’t they! http://arseh.at/8bn

via TweetDeck

RT @iain_chalmers: Fielding and a goat? [Surely it’d be Senator Xenophon and a goat? Linkage to follow.]

via TweetDeck

True story. I met Wyatt Roy’s parents while touring SS Jeremiah O’Brien in San Francisco. http://arseh.at/8bm

via TweetDeck

RT @glengyron: Bronwyn Bishop v Wyatt Roy. [I really want to add to that, but I dare not. I’ve met his parents.]

via TweetDeck

Oh no, people. Alex Hawke MP, Member for Mitchell, is exceedingly unrootable. And I’ve been drinking.

via TweetDeck

RT @bastardsheep: Better yet, a human centipede of Fielding, Abbott and Nile. [Now we’re talking!]

via TweetDeck

We’ve barely scratched the surface here. Alexander Downer? Andrew Peacock? Eric Abetz?

via TweetDeck

RT @TheMeanSplendor: Tammy Fraser sneaking in to ride Gough, pre-dismissal (Margaret was downstairs the whole time!)

via TweetDeck

Some people are failing to use the hashtag. I will name names unless you fix that.

via TweetDeck

RT @bastardsheep: Stephen Fielding and Tony Abbott. [See, this is why we invented the internet!]

via TweetDeck

Well, heck, if you’re going to be wrong on a Saturday night, you might as well be wrong with a trending hashtag.

via TweetDeck

So what’s the hottest sexual scenario you can imagine between Australian politicians?

via TweetDeck

Uhoh that’s wrong.

via TweetDeck

Picture it now, people! Julia Gillard and Thingo the Hairdresser squelch squelch squelch! John and Hyacinth Howard flurb flurb flurb flop.

via TweetDeck

RT @TheMeanSplendor: When was the last time the master bedroom of The Lodge saw hot sex? PJK and Anita? [Surely there’s surveillance vids?]

via TweetDeck

I think I might go non-linear.

via TweetDeck

It’s more than a year old, but my chat with Prof Catharine Lumby about censorship etc is still fascinating. http://arseh.at/8bk

via TweetDeck

@Kathleenskene I wouldn’t ever criticise sub-editing at The Drum because, um, I file there too and they’re obviously superb human beings.

via TweetDeck

Who’s this muppet what reckons respecting beliefs is “treading on eggshells” and we should just do whatever police say? http://arseh.at/8bj

via TweetDeck

“I’m dumping Telstra for the voluntary filter”, says @mwyres, pointing out one of the fundamental issues. http://arseh.at/8bi

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin I’m now reasonably confident in battery management skillz, like a half-arsed submarine commander.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin An hour of generator ups 48.8V-ish in the battery to around 52V. The punters will have electrickery tomorrow, lucky things.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

My most recent coverage of internet filtering was this podcast http://arseh.at/8bh and this ABC op-ed http://arseh.at/8bg in July 2010.

via TweetDeck

Who needs regulation, @R_Chirgwin? Telstra can just say that’s the service they provide, filtered by this list, surely? “Voluntary”…

via TweetDeck

Telstra has confirmed they’re looking at using the Interpol blacklist, not ACMA’s, as in this story. http://arseh.at/8bf

via TweetDeck

I didn’t mention it earlier, but Senator Conroy leaves for Europe in the morning so he isn’t available for the “Patch Monday” podcast.

via TweetDeck

Justin Beiber went to the dentist. I went to the dentist. Therefore I am Justin Beiber. You know it feels right.

via TweetDeck

Roast chicken and salad replaces burger. Wine replaces other options. I’ll be back at the cottages shortly. In theory.

via TweetDeck

@grumpymojo Ta for the suggestion of Hetty Johnstone for the podcast. I’ll give her a call in the morning.

via TweetDeck in reply to grumpymojo

@prestontowers Well, it’s another hour until the next train to Leura, or a cab fare that makes a couple days’ supplies economical.

via TweetDeck in reply to prestontowers

Oh that’s right. The “supermarket” in Wentworth Falls isn’t open this “late”. A burger and booze it is.

via TweetDeck

Oh. I’ve just seen that we’re heading for -1C tonight. This’ll be my last beer before shopping and heading back to stoke the fire.

via TweetDeck

Yes, @AnnoyingGuys, feral goldfish are mentioned in my bio, in French. There’s a story behind that. http://arseh.at/8bd

via TweetDeck

RT @babycakesjase: My housemate found this on her grand adventures last night. (Yes, it is a Miley Cyrus sex doll) http://yfrog.com/kluvujj

via TweetDeck

For those folks not awake this morning, I posted links to the audio of my radio spots this week at http://stilgherrian.com/

via TweetDeck

No, @R_BurtonBradley, not said to me. I’m just reporting random loud comments in a relatively quiet bar here at Wentworth Falls.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Your problem is you don’t have a dog to look after.”

via TweetDeck

I detect an Edict coming on…

via TweetDeck

RT @beneltham: @SUMMA_ I think you should disclose that you are an OzCo employee… [snip] [Um, yes, that’d be ethical in this context.]

via TweetDeck

@SUMMA_ I haven’t drilled down into the site yet. Too much expensive-looking animated crap to be bothered with on mobile, TBH.

via TweetDeck in reply to SUMMA_

@unsungsongs I know. I only bought into it ‘cos there wasn’t a quote from the drunk people behind me to tweet that moment.

via TweetDeck in reply to unsungsongs

@unsungsongs @SUMMA_ OK, I’m walking into a conversation with little pre-existing context, but I can see crossed purposes.

via TweetDeck in reply to unsungsongs

@SUMMA_ “A resource that benefits artists/arts orgs in Oz” is an assertion rather than a proven fact, yeah? /cc @unsungsongs

via TweetDeck

@unsungsongs You should just bang your head against the wall a few times, I think. You can’t teach ducks to dance.

via TweetDeck

Dilemma. Do my shopping before sunset and it starts getting cold? Or stay to record such a vibrant local culture?

via TweetDeck

OH: “I’m drunk, darling, and I’m coned to the max. I don’t give a fuck about you, girl! I’m going for another.”

via TweetDeck

OH, as ABC’s “Behind The News” comes on-screen: “What’s ‘BTN’?” “Oh I dunno, some sort of gay TV show.”

via TweetDeck

That’s not the Virgin Mary, @michaelmeloni, that’s the Carlton Draught tap. [Note to ad agency: Use that idea and you owe me shitloads.]

via TweetDeck

The afternoon sunlight can be fierce at The Grand View http://post.ly/2HDQR

via Posterous

@sylmobile Donna Summer, “I feel love”, is what you seek.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

@michaelmeloni Oh, I thought my comment was a but obtuse but work-outable. YMMV. http://arseh.at/8b4

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelmeloni

I’ve just popped an interview request through to Senator Conroy’s office.

via TweetDeck

Oh hello. The Oz reckons Telstra is wavering on introducing the “voluntary” internet “filter”, fears @LulzSec. http://arseh.at/8b2

via TweetDeck

OH: “Fifty-one? You’re a pup compared to us!” This sweet old woman can come back any time, if you ask me.

via TweetDeck

RT @alexonthebus: Better described as having common ancestry (4chan community) and possibly some overlap.

via TweetDeck

RT @iBleeter: As much as a Terry Gilliam film is a splinter-Monty Python flick. My 2c. [Good analogy, if Anonymous/LulzSec link is as said.]

via TweetDeck

@leslienassar What you seem to be suggesting is that writers at The Economist have failed to behave like sheep. I know. Disappointing.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

That WSJ piece describes @LulzSec as a “splinter group” off Anonymous. Is that a fair description? Or at least a chooseable one?

via TweetDeck

WSJ: “Inside the Anonymous Army of ‘Hacktivist’ Attackers” http://arseh.at/8b1

via TweetDeck

Comprehensible analysis of Apple’s music strategy from The Economist. http://arseh.at/8b0

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Walk the dirt tracks and Railway Pde to Wentworth Falls; lunch as The Grand View; maybe a wander; shopping; return.

via TweetDeck

@einspruch @R_Chirgwin I’ll leave you chaps to your Bitcoin chat for now. Maybe I should do a “Patch Monday” on that some time too.

via TweetDeck

Bugger. Trains ex-Wentworth Falls in both ways are now inconveniently timed for having lunch in Lawson or Katoomba. Local pub it is.

via TweetDeck

@einspruch @R_Chirgwin Bitcoin computations are “hard” to prevent over-creation of currency and are part of the validation process.

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Talking Bitcoin and digital currency on ABC 774 Melbourne”, with Thursday’s audio. http://arseh.at/8au

via TweetDeck

Thank you, @jeffsonstein, but all credit for arseh.at must go to @thepatus. It’s all his fault.

via TweetDeck

Yes, I did a bunch of radio spots this week. I’m now catching up and linking to all the audio. One more to go.

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Talking information security on ABC Radio’s ‘Life Matters’”, links to audio from Thursday. http://arseh.at/8at

via TweetDeck

“Bono’s cock drives me nuts.” http://arseh.at/8ar HT various.

via TweetDeck

Today is “International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking”. Look out for the propaganda news stories. And put that down now.

via TweetDeck

Telstra has more to gain from a full NBN rollout than a partial one, says Stephen Bartholomeusz. http://arseh.at/8aq

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Talking NBN on 1395 FIVEaa Adelaide”, with audio from Thursday. http://arseh.at/8ao

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Everyday Photographs, Extraordinary Journeys” http://arseh.at/8am Ping @mbpowers @veritychambers @666canberra

via TweetDeck

OK, it seems like there’s some demand. The “Patch Monday” podcast will (probably) cover Teh Filterz. Usual Suspects, please email. ;)

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: As opposed to No’s usual suspects? [Quite. But on any topic there’s few people with clue. I know, not the same thing.]

via TweetDeck

Of course to do that effectively I’d need someone who can put the pro argument coherently who’s not one of the “usual suspects”.

via TweetDeck

Would there be enough interest in me doing “Patch Monday” podcast panel about the “voluntary” ISP filtering story? http://arseh.at/8al

via TweetDeck

RT @glengyron: Don’t go all unibomber up there in the mountains Stilgherrian. [Why on Earth not?]

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Busy week, much media, and some changes”, with an ugly photo. http://arseh.at/8ai

via TweetDeck

Sat plan, unordered: Blog post catch-up; errand Wentworth Falls / Katoomba / somewhere; much thinking; even “Patch Monday” podcast editing?

via TweetDeck

You know, @R_Chirgwin is right. This Morsø wood stove is very, very good. Efficient overnight heating FTW! http://arseh.at/8ae

via TweetDeck

Gosh. Saturday. There’s a minus sign in front of the temperature. At least there was a short time ago.
