Oh here we go… transmitters off, see you in Sydney.

@QantasAirways Flying is bad enough without this shit jazz you’re playing as we board QF12. Why do we need more noise AT ALL?

via TweetDeck

Oh FFS the seats are numbered using numbers that are numbers you stupid fucking sheep just sit in your seat and shut the fuck up.

Boarding? Already? Oh alright.

Drinking with a former US Army helicopter pilot instructor. This will end well.

I blame American Airlines and their triple scotch on a 40-minute flight. Now I have to maintain the ratio all the way to Sydney.

via Cloudhopper

This is all rhetorical. LAX doesn’t have free Wi-Fi anyway, so I can’t see your replies.

via Cloudhopper

Does it make a difference if they look distinctly bovine?

via Cloudhopper

So what’s the etiquette for approaching someone at the table with the last remaining power outlet who’s just flipping thru a magazine?

via Cloudhopper

Make that very foggy.

via Cloudhopper

LAX is rather foggy.

In a small first class cabin, that last few mins if landing thru cloud was essentially “Land of the Giants” episode 1.

The McDonnell Douglas S80 is not a Stuka. Please tell the pilot.

via Cloudhopper

Transmitters off.

@NewtonMark American Airlines, who are of course Qantas’ special friends.

@chrisjrn Ah, there’s usually an economic reason for these things, yes. But I’m sure stupidity is also a factor.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

Amazed at how much shit the proles seem to need in the cabin with them on a 70-minute flight.

@nwjerseyliz Too late to rob any casinos now… I’ve just board my flight out of town.

Now being upgraded on the LAX-SYD leg, that would be the trick. Sadly I don’t think that’s going to happen.

via TweetDeck

Oh I just noticed. For the LAS-LAX flight I seem to have been upgraded to first class. Burden, eh?

@nphair The airport bar is open. They have no power point handy. But I’ve just done the main slab of editing I needed to do.

via TweetDeck in reply to nphair

Podcast editing at gate terminal D37, Las Vegas Airport. Maybe I should’ve gone drinking instead?

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong I did see the wedding chapels in old Vegas. They look rather run down and sad.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@nwjerseyliz Oh, you know… Vegas… assault rifles… It’s kinda natural.

via TweetDeck in reply to nwjerseyliz

Ah, recording and editing final podcast bits while 108 floors up, watching the view, with a scotch and soda. Pleasant. But time to go…

via Cloudhopper

With guns. Well, with more guns.

via Cloudhopper

Ah, America! It’s like an infinite Blacktown.

via Cloudhopper

Uhoh. This isn’t a dessert wine, it’s a girl’s wine.

via Cloudhopper

There’s simply nothing classier than a revolving restaurant.

via Cloudhopper

The waiter tells me Sahara closed in May. There’s almost none of the old Vegas left, she says. Even downtown is bring “remodelled”.

via Cloudhopper

I don’t know how Donald Trump achieves it, but his gold tower manages to look crass in Las Vegas.

via Cloudhopper

Heading to the Top of the World restaurant on level 108 of the Stratosphere Tower.

via Cloudhopper

Mobile. Check out; shopping at a nearby mall; wander the strip looking for a recording location; you can guess what’s after that.

via TweetDeck

I should probably get rid of these spent 9mm cartridges.

via Cloudhopper

Fragments of last night’s dream include the phrase “draining the pond to reveal the evidence”.

via TweetDeck

@antoniodini This may come as a shock, but I didn’t have a drink last night. But then I didn’t record the podcast script either.

via TweetDeck in reply to antoniodini

@HamishBarwick Yep, I’ll be going through my receipts shortly. I must unexplode my possessions from the hotel room.

via TweetDeck in reply to HamishBarwick
