@expectproblems I had taken that for an eagle, actually.

@expectproblems Isn’t it obvious? That’s the Colonel.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

Oh good, the drugs have finally started working. I can start writing now.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems It’s a bit special. I’m looking forward to the rest of the full episodes.

@expectproblems Watching this and not laughing would make you a Nazi. youtu.be/ZK0OQk_vShg

@mpesce RANDOM WEBCAMS MAKE IT EVEN MOAR BETTEROR!

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

RT @mpesce: Putting clothes on, because even on radio, no one wants you with . [You really have no idea about radio…]

via TweetDeck

Not everything is a euphemism, @purserj

via TweetDeck

What makes you think I’m not already owed some nuke favours, @michaelneale?

via TweetDeck

“Putin Thanks Oil Billionaires for Saving Nuclear Submarine Base.” Uhoh. Oligarchs owed nuke favours. arseh.at/sr6 HT @paulwiggins

via TweetDeck

RT @citizen_cam: Bondage continues with [Would you mind drawing a diagram of that?]

via TweetDeck

@jayrayner1 Good to see you’re still alive so far, Jay. I loved the review.

via TweetDeck in reply to jayrayner1

RT @lomantik: How I de-stress/enter the Zen zone - cooking! arseh.at/sr5 [For the crustacea involved, less so, I’d imagine.]

via TweetDeck

OH: “I’m always glad when my flippers can find a use.”

via TweetDeck

@dahowlett Very new. Until today, we only had cats and pornographers on the internet. And cat pornographers.

via TweetDeck in reply to dahowlett

RT @chrisberg: when will the media admit that the commonwealth government is an invention used to sell papers?

via TweetDeck

There are arsehats on the internet tonight.

via TweetDeck

Yes, @NewtonMark, my original plan was 20 eps of “The 9pm Edict” for series 1. I’ll do one more before considering what happens next.

via TweetDeck

Nipple clamps. For the kiddies. I approve of this strategy, @firstdogonmoon.

via TweetDeck

So, anyone expecting me to respond to email today will have to wait until I’ve written something or maybe even until tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

RT @Pollytics: That speculation is a horny bugger - it’s mounting again. [Bucket of cold water, stat!]

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: Encrypting Tweets is like installing Linux on a toaster. I’m happy for you, though. [ENCRYPT ALL THE TOASTERS!]

via TweetDeck

@bleeters Oh I am watching what @mpesce says VERY closely at the moment, trust me. As is GCHQ…

via TweetDeck in reply to bleeters

@bleeters Excellent feedback, though @mpesce should probably be in the loop on that too. I’m doing a piece on CrypTweet shortly.

via TweetDeck in reply to bleeters

@cam_sinclair I don’t see why you limit your description to Labor politicians. Unless that’s just partisanry. It’s across the board.

via TweetDeck in reply to cam_sinclair

@PaulBongiorno @EricRipperMLA A personal opinion, but I find it all tedious beyond belief. It does seem many other punters agree, though.

via TweetDeck

@PaulBongiorno @EricRipperMLA Can’t disagree. Policy must be sold, sale is politics. But leadership speculation dominating all is bullshit.

via TweetDeck

@andrewdotnich Indeed, I thought that after such an intense rant a little time to reflect might be in order.

via TweetDeck in reply to andrewdotnich

@benmoretti @mpesce It strikes me as a bit redundant to encrypt the tweets you intend to make public.

via TweetDeck in reply to morebento

Final overpimp: In “The 9pm Edict” episode 19 I present a modest proposal for fixing Canberra journalism. arseh.at/sqn

via TweetDeck

So, would you like to send secure encrypted DMs on Twitter? Consider @mpesce’s new CrypTweet project. plexusproject.org

via TweetDeck

RT @EricRipperMLA: For journalists leadership contests are like crack cocaine while mere policy is only oatmeal [Exactly the problem.]

via TweetDeck

“Twitter”? What’s what?

via TweetDeck

There was some sort of large, deformed creature next to the Prime Minister on stage before. Shouldn’t it have been on a leash?

via TweetDeck

Noticing that someone is a far bigger prick than I’d realised.

via TweetDeck

That 0500 start following a shitful asleep is taking its toll.

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge I thought the low-end schools could just be turned into farms full stop.

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

@SnarkyPlatypus It strikes me that £160 is rather more than I’d spend for a dinner for two.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @MikeStuchbery: Children from disadvantaged state schools to spend one hour each day gold-farming in MMORPGs.

via TweetDeck

Please forget the PM’s presser, @latikambourke, it’s just ritual. Tome spent analysing the report is MUCH better use of your time.

via TweetDeck

RT @sophistifunk: I forsee polonium in his future ;-) [Well indeed. The old techniques work best…]

via TweetDeck

While still serious upfuckage, @SnarkyPlatypus, I agree, the “Pan-Asian” bit sounds one of the least-wrong things about that restaurant.

via TweetDeck

I wonder if this UK restaurant reviewer expects to still be alive at the end of the week. arseh.at/sqz

New “Patch Monday” podcast: “Mobile broadband: the next 5 years” arseh.at/sqy

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge @sylmobile I thought that Edict 19 was a well-structured approach to managing journalists. :/

via TweetDeck

It seems someone with access to the Press Gallery noticeboard agrees with my broad thesis. arseh.at/sqx

via TweetDeck

Interview done. Some interesting comments recorded. I should now discuss this with an editor, I think. But after I’ve had an early lunch.

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast filed! I now have 10 minutes to prepare for my 1100 interview. And people choose to work in the media.

via TweetDeck

Kookaburras: 2. Skinks: 0.

via TweetDeck

Uploading. Meanwhile, skinks emerge to bask in the post-storm sun. Until the young kookaburras swoop to snap them up, that is.

via TweetDeck

@ckomagan You’re probably better off going to the TweetDeck support forum. I have no special knowledge here.

via TweetDeck in reply to ckomagan

@ckomagan Sorry, I can’t really help you there. I don’t use Twitpic, and a bit too flat out this morning to investigate.

via TweetDeck in reply to ckomagan

RT @lukehopewell: Seven Group has agreed to offload vividwireless to Optus. Story coming soon @zdnetaustralia.

via TweetDeck

Ah, “team player”! The mealy-mouth coward’s code for “shut the fuck up and do as you’re told”.

via TweetDeck

Oh well, back to the podcast production. The one I’m paid to do. I’ll have to fix that.

via TweetDeck

@drueyjay Thank you. I was driven truly cranky yesterday by this fuckwitted reportage. I dare not look at The Media today.

via TweetDeck in reply to drueyjay

“Goatfucking Island”?

via TweetDeck

RT @ataraxite: Does your podcast consist of you shouting “Kill them! Kill them all!”? (Again.) [I prefer not to give away the ending.]

via TweetDeck

Possible overpimp, but in “The 9pm Edict” episode 19 I present a modest proposal for fixing Canberra journalism. arseh.at/sqn

via TweetDeck

0730. Decision time. Revised schedule, battery life and stomach state mean I shan’t do the Long Commute to Sydney and back today.

via TweetDeck

@jeamland Is there any more appropriate kind of lawyer? Ever?

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

@BernardKeane @firstdogonmoon So, do we need a “Field Guide to Poison Dwarves”?

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@jeamland @VenturaBus If they play radio on public transport you’re entitled to shoot out the speakers. I checked with a kind of lawyer.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

@R_Chirgwin To answer last night’s question, yes, you got our leftover storm. Massive rain and the like here again yesterday afternoon.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

RT @timwattsau: Close. What they really teach is exclusivity and the importance of preserving it. [Aye, that’d be it.]

via TweetDeck

@ma_ttie On indeed, the leading private schools have always sold it’s their education that leads to “success”, for their definition of that.

via TweetDeck in reply to ma_ttie

RT @KermodeMovie: @charltonbrooker Remember: if it doesn’t have a projectionist it’s not a cinema - it’s a sweetshop with a video-screen.

via TweetDeck

They says Kings School etc teach “leadership”, but sounds more like it’s arrogance and a sense of entitlement. /cc @R_Chirgwin @702sydney

via TweetDeck

I wonder whether Kings School represents money well spent educating kids for the future rather than the past… /cc @R_Chirgwin @702sydney

via TweetDeck

Ah, Kings School, where the shallow political analysis of the early 1970s and before is alive and well! /cc @R_Chirgwin @702sydney

via TweetDeck

@Alegrya @SnarkyPlatypus Heya, interesting that insomnia and vivid dreams were not uncommon last night. Have seen quite a few mentions.

via TweetDeck

Mon plan: Complete “Patch Monday” podcast; 1100 interview; write op-ed. Decide at 0730 whether it’s train to Sydney or phoner for 1100.

via TweetDeck

Monday, and it begins with pain and the need to rearrange the week’s schedule yet again. Stand clear.
