RT @Cacotopos: @stilgherrian did you misspell crackwhore? [I’m not sure. Let me check on the receipt…]

via TweetDeck

I do wish that strange man would stop maligning goats.

via TweetDeck

Fuck me, you really don’t need that much petrol to get a decent hit, do you? Should’ve told me years ago, @4corners, I’d have saved heaps!

via TweetDeck

At least MY editors tell me off if I ever try that sort of keyword-stuffing. Not that I would. iPhone WikiLeaks Bieber Rudd Gaga Krakouer.

via TweetDeck

To judge from the tweets, this @4corners episode was designed by an SEO consultant?

via TweetDeck

Right. I’m going for the jerry can.

via TweetDeck

I now thank @R_Chirgwin in turn for referring to @4corners as “The Human Centipede of Rumour”. Not that I’m watching.

via TweetDeck

Cheers, @R_Chirgwin, I only wish I’d thought of it myself.

via TweetDeck

RT @R_Chirgwin: Thank you, @stilgherrian, for pointing to an article with the glorious phrase “intellectual-masturbation death match”.

via TweetDeck

@infoholic Well, as the article I just linked to says, BBC/ABC routinely assume that knowledge level in literature / drama / politics etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to infoholic

This article about the BBC’s problem with science applies equally well to the ABC. arseh.at/sll Ping @abcmarkscott

via TweetDeck

Gawd, you don’t need an “expert” to compare radiation levels of a phone and a phone tower, @abcnews, it’s high-school physics.

via TweetDeck

RTR: New “Patch Monday” podcast: “Blackhole: cybercrime toolkit of choice”, and other fun trends. arseh.at/sl3

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite Who’s “Jesus”?

via TweetDeck

@deejackson I reckon I’d look great in that uniform.

via TweetDeck in reply to deejackson

I so want to be the Queen’s Bargemaster. arseh.at/slj

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite Anyway, I found your “cock crowed thrice” moment the other day, at 5’36” into this video. arseh.at/sli

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite I never claimed to be wineless. Stop hallucinating, you freak!

via TweetDeck

NOW we’ll show you some Spirit of Peaceful Harmony”!

via TweetDeck

@zerogeewhiz @sylmobile @SnarkyPlatypus @yewenyi I’M IN LUCK! I’VE FOUND A BOTTLE OF DISINFECTANT! CULINARY DELIGHTS AWAIT!

via TweetDeck

That fuckin’ jerry can is looking more appealing as every minute passes.

via TweetDeck

“Spirit of Peaceful Harmony” my arse! “Kauen Sie Ihre Essen Macht Frei!”, or somesuch.

via TweetDeck

I don’t remember who tweeted this earlier, but whoever invented it sounds like a dangerous psychopath to me. arseh.at/slg

via TweetDeck

RT @chrisjrn: Can you try something stronger? [Well, I suppose I could go to the generator shed and start huffing some petrol…]

via TweetDeck

RT @chrisjrn: You should guest tweet @TurnbullMalcolm’s guest tweets. [There isn’t enough wine in the house.]

via TweetDeck

@SulphurCocky Some BASTARDS fail to hashtag tweets properly and THEY LEAK THROUGH INTO MY CONSCIOUSNESS! /cc @chrisjrn @TurnbullMalcolm

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

RT @leslienassar: Man, you’re Twittering all wrong! Conversational cluetrain, yo! If you ignore stupid Tweets, you ignore Twitter!

via TweetDeck

But @chrisjrn@TurnbullMalcolm can tweet about TV any time he wants. We all can. We don’t need Auntie’s blessing. I WANT TO KILL THEM!

via TweetDeck

Dunno, @nehadk, I add all TV program hashtags to TweetDeck’s filter. If I want to watch TV I’ll watch it, not watch people tweet about it.

via TweetDeck

RT @nehadk: If @Lateline’s ‘guest’ tweeter is @TurnbullMalcolm, then what are we? Unwelcome tweeters? Overstaying our welcome? Interrupting?

via TweetDeck

And, Dear Lateline, @TurnbullMalcolm’s perspectives are interesting. So why not just have him on the program instead of this gimmickry?

via TweetDeck

Christ, I see Lateline has had to order a second shark so they can jump that one too. “Guest Tweeter”? FFS! JUST ANALYSE THE GODDAM NEWS!

via TweetDeck

@Phoebe_Netto @jenbshopsydney If an interviewee does nothing but stay “on message”, you can be sure I’ll never interview them again.

via TweetDeck

@Phoebe_Netto @jenbshopsydney Of course, “staying on message” bores the audience. Rather, answer the goddam questions asked and be human.

via TweetDeck in reply to Phoebe_Netto

Yes, yes, you bought something in a retail transaction. You’re very special indeed. [pat pat]

via TweetDeck

Buying shares in a tinfoil hat foundry.

via TweetDeck

@petedavo_au Well, I refer it as journalism’s “myth of objectivity” for a reason. I don’t think there’s really any such thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to petedavo_au

@ozdj That’d be following up the 19yo involved in a fight at Cockle Bay on Saturday who ended up in the water and dead, presumably drowned.

via TweetDeck in reply to ozdj

Remember when the media reported everything from a balanced, neutral perspective? youtu.be/MqrKqPEHYuI

via TweetDeck

@HarrisonPolites Happy to help on anything infosec-related. I’m looking forward to reading and pimping your article this evening.

via TweetDeck in reply to HarrisonPolites

This month’s overblown accommodation prices in Sydney are causing me to reassess all of my plans. Again.

via TweetDeck

@rycrozier @joshgnosis @j_hutch I tell you what, that 100k between me and Sydney helps me understand what’s “interesting” or “important”.

via TweetDeck

RT @joshgnosis: It’s the appeal of the $5m fine for the Supersonic etc ads from July last year. [Ah cheers, saw it first time around.]

via TweetDeck

Is the Optus vs ACCC thing in the Federal Court tomorrow anything of interest?

via TweetDeck

Disgruntled. With extra grunt.

via TweetDeck

@Leighlo Sorry, you have all the info about the Lesser Minogiue’s book signing thingo I absorbed before hitting “delete”.

via TweetDeck in reply to Leighlo

Dannii Minogue will be at Dymocks Sydney signing her book on 1 March at 5.30pm? Another clich├ęd Mardi Gras tie-in, right? Yawn.

via TweetDeck

New “Patch Monday” podcast: “Blackhole: cybercrime toolkit of choice”, and other fun trends. arseh.at/sl3

via TweetDeck

@en_gy No, the has not yet been published. I’ve been battling… something the last few days. But it will emerge soon. Soon.

via TweetDeck

@adm_76 The hail looks like it could easily be six inches deep, yes.

via TweetDeck in reply to adm_76

@Margarita890 Oh, all this is detailed on my website. The “50 to 50” category reveals a lot of details. arseh.at/57o

via TweetDeck in reply to Margarita890

Should I now head to Katoomba? This photo from a @702sydney listener suggests “Yes!” That’s impressive hail. arseh.at/sl2

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. Finally. With bonus continuity errors. Ping @engochick and break out the vodka.

via TweetDeck

Look, I grew up on a dairy farm. We were awash with the damn things.

via TweetDeck

How can people not have smelled a placenta? [baffled]

via TweetDeck

So, that’s the record-and-edit done. Now, Levelator on the voiceover tracks, recombine, mix, compress to MP3, add ID3 tags, upload etc.

via TweetDeck

RT @Margarita890: You should move to America. We poo poo deadlines. [Orly? Well you can explain that to @engochick then.]

via TweetDeck

Fuck. Deadlines. I must Vandenberg on, regardless of the risk to continuity.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus The problem is, with all the noise of this rainstorm I can’t finish my Vandenberging. Continuity fail.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

And that lightning strike was 150m away. Glorious.

via TweetDeck

@ScaredyCat44 I’m not the least bit worried about surge protection because we’re not on the power grid.

via TweetDeck in reply to ScaredyCat44

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m just listening back to the main edited block of the interview. I may have a little more Vandenberging to do.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

OK, that lightning flash was only 300m away. This’ll be fun.

via TweetDeck

Rain begins. Big, fat, heavy drops.

via TweetDeck

Rosellas do the take-cover-quickly danger calls. Thunder gets closer, louder, sharper.

via TweetDeck

Quite a lot of thunder, actually. And it’s getting dark fairly quickly.

via TweetDeck

The audio editing continues, as the thunder begins outside.

via TweetDeck

RT @umairh: You know the global plutocracy? You know our brain-dead so-called culture? You know how you’re watching the Grammies? Yeah.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus You’ve just given me a brilliant idea. Kind of.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Great. Now I have to be Brooke Vandenberg for two hours. This’ll help no end.

via TweetDeck

Garnishing a small pleasure from the fact that the progress bar says “Flattening Movie”. As always, I envy it in this activity.

via TweetDeck

Starting the audio editing. Discovering a problem with said audio that will slow me down even further. Displeased. Stand clear.

via TweetDeck

What proportion of world media output consists of smug middle-class white men demonstrating superior education by repeating trivia factoids?

via TweetDeck

Mon plan, probably: Produce “Patch Monday” podcast, held over from yesterday; end of plan.

via TweetDeck

Well that’s Pinterest added to TweetDeck’s global filter.

via TweetDeck

Still rearranging Monday. This displeases me, and will displease others. But at this stage I just want to make it through the day alive.

via TweetDeck

Monday, and it shall have to be rearranged.
