“Come, Natalia, hush. Take refuge in my moustache.” [nods] Sensible post-MAD strategy, Comrade.

via TweetDeck

It is the future, and everything that ever happens in Sydney is part of Vivid and opened by someone who once knew Brian Eno.

via TweetDeck

RT @mclayfield: Anyone need a full-time Moscow correspondent? Because I really don’t want to leave…

via TweetDeck

RT @dannolan_ebooks: It’s very solipsistic

via TweetDeck

“Before electric eels…” arseh.at/t5e Ping @firstdogonmoon

via TweetDeck

@MetaMikeBiggs @stusheridan I’ll post links to all the avatar sources tomorrow morning some time. Couldn’t be arsed just now.

@iiadamogrady “Better”? Is someone making value judgements?

via TweetDeck in reply to adamjogrady

Sometimes information is revealed and the nausea wells up so, so suddenly…

via TweetDeck

One, maybe two more Britannia avatars. Here is number six. No, I don’t know either.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m not sure all those words mean what you think they mean.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus The “Britannia High” images I’ve found seem insufficiently self-explanatory or irredeemably shirtless and wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I feel that I have moved well beyond the original conception of Empire Day and its traditions.

via TweetDeck

Questions. 1: What species is that, exactly? 2: Is that even an orifice there? 3: If… no. There are just two questions.

via TweetDeck

I attempted to head well away from Equestria ponies / bronies or whatever they are. Google Images has taken me a whole new world of wrong.

via TweetDeck

Various Twitter clients’ image caching may fuck up your evening, and mine.

via TweetDeck

Empire Day continues. Britannia avatar number 5 appears.

via TweetDeck

Resisting the temptation to go down the “Britannia High” path.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin The upwelling-of-sand theory makes sense. It matches the geology I can see, and there’s similar events along Railway Pde.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@ForsakenDAemon You have been especially blessed with Purity of Vision. Enjoy.

via TweetDeck in reply to ForsakenDAemon

@R_Chirgwin I don’t see anything wrong with making our tags like that public. They’ll be outnumbered by links to houses and other features.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin OK, I’ll set it up properly as a public map with suitable markers etc over coming days. Like the one at arseh.at/346

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin I have just emailed you a map with the location marked.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Ah yes, I think I know the spots. William was playing with one of them, I believe. Did that sand appear via Alex?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin I am not sure which incipient spring you mean. Geolocate, please!

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

RT @JohnBirmingham: I know, I know, it does my head in too, but Andrew Bolt is 100% correct: bit.ly/wquczm [It’s true. Thank him.]

via TweetDeck

@sylmobile @R_Chirgwin That reminds me. I haven’t photographed my targets from the rifle range yet. I did OK.

via TweetDeck

Here’s some “everyone” people who “need” to build a rockstar profile. arseh.at/t55 arseh.at/t56 arseh.at/t57

via TweetDeck

“Everyone needs to aspire to build a rockstar profile!” Everyone. Needs. Thank @DaniBevins for braving a room filled with such arsehattery.

via TweetDeck

I think it’s important to reduce “social media success” to three or four short bullet points. Nothing is ever more complex. Nothing. Ever.

via TweetDeck

RT @ataraxite: you have got to be shitting me. arseh.at/t53 [But it’s “superb value” with “satisfaction guaranteed! It’s sensible.]

via TweetDeck

RT @GreenJ: about your current avatar … i thought you were vehemently opposed to self portraits? [Special day, I can make exceptions.]

via TweetDeck

And I’ll do a blog post with all of the avatars and full credits tomorrow morning.

via TweetDeck

Thank you, @Gwyntaglaw @duncanriley @yewenyi @JMRooker @sylmobile, there’s still a couple more Empire Day avatars to come this evening.

via TweetDeck

OH, cab driver: “Gina Rinehart is a really, really nasty piece of work.”

via TweetDeck

Right. Shopping then back to the Cottages. Stand by.

via TweetDeck

RT @liamberkery: @stilgherrian well it would be hard to eat sandwiches from your own wake. [Yes yes also thank you @virtualpete sigh.]

via TweetDeck

Eating the leftover sandwiches from someone else’s wake.

via TweetDeck

Right. It’s @Oprah’s fault. At least that’s clear now. arseh.at/t51

via TweetDeck

BTW, I’m pleased that @ApostrophePong’s award-winning short film arseh.at/7e will be shown at the MMA in NYC soon.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems @ApostrophePong Note that in my previous tweet I originally wrote “people” but deleted it and wrote “buskers” instead.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems I remember @ApostrophePong’s impassioned call for those silver status buskers to be pushed into the Harbour. Sensible man.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

This was Empire Day in Sydney in 1948. Ain’t The Rocks and Circular Quay changed a bit. arseh.at/t50

via TweetDeck

@awelder A letter from @Barnaby_Joyce would be nice. I mean, we hardly talk these days. /cc @drueyjay

via TweetDeck

@jenbishopsydney In hindsight, I suspect I’d be a crap coach.

via TweetDeck in reply to jenbishopsydney

RT @jenbishopsydney: First cardio class in a week due to illness. How will I cope?! [You’ll do it. Easily. Some people face bullets daily.]

via TweetDeck

Damn. Someone else did the stopped clock joke already.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Normally you have a beer with the guy you bowl against, but they never supplied food or anything so I just fucked off.”

via TweetDeck

RT @bengrubb: @stilgherrian excited [By my current avatar, or by the news of Mr Jeremy?]

via TweetDeck

RT @drueyjay: Ben doesn’t want me to take him to MEL. He thinks there’s nothing there. So, Twitter, what IS in MEL? [Train to Adelaide?]

via TweetDeck

Replug: My special guest on “The 9pm Edict” podcast this coming Thursday is the very famous Ron Jeremy. Yes. arseh.at/t41

via TweetDeck

@GeordieGuy Oh, I cannot replicate your err… oh, erm, I see.

via TweetDeck in reply to GordyPls

What’s a “Coldplay”, @rashasman? You mean “Hamlet” or something?

via TweetDeck

OH: “Do these NRL clubs employee their own tattoo artist?”

via TweetDeck

RT @en_gy: It is as though Occupy and Mardi Gras had a baby. [Exactly! And only good could come of that, right?]

via TweetDeck

So this avatar is heaps better, right @en_gy?

via TweetDeck

You are not helping, @heraldscum @wolfcat @tagdu, I think I’d better change Empire Day Britannia avatars again. Stand by.

via TweetDeck

Ah, the joy that comes when writing an analysis piece and newly-discovered facts change your viewpoint!

via TweetDeck

RT @RealNickHodge: You know who else was a “dud root”? is.gd/6rAK4o

via TweetDeck

So let me get this right… Harry Kewell is a dud root?

via TweetDeck

Some people have an odd, selfish idea of what “need” means.

via TweetDeck

Yeah but Obama’s re-election video wasn’t on Xtube.

via TweetDeck

If you like this Pax Britannia avatar, @en_gy, you’ll love the next one. I’ll change at around 1700 AEDT.

via TweetDeck

New “Patch Monday” podcast: “Future security: big data or Big Brother?” with RSA’s Art Coviello. arseh.at/t4z

via TweetDeck

@joshgnosis I would assume the national anthem means the Governor or Governor General is present. /cc @purserj

via TweetDeck

Speaking of celebration, @sleepingdingo, it’s time to change Britannia again. Equal opportunity time.

via TweetDeck

@sleepingdingo Well, the Prime Minister is celebrating Commonwealthj Day today, which is what Empire Day became. All terribly modern.

via TweetDeck in reply to sleepingdingo

Made it. Just.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Walking the dirt track then Railway Pde to Wentworth Falls for lunch at The Grand View. First time I’ve walked it in ages.

via TweetDeck

I do hope you’re all having a lovely Empire Day. I suppose I should wave. [waves]

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge I’m not sure. Did you slip in the shower?

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

@staticsan As mentioned earlier, there’ll be multiple avatars today. With caching, it’s hard to say which you’ll see when.

via TweetDeck in reply to staticsan

Meanwhile as Empire Day continues, it’s time for a change of Britannia.

via TweetDeck

Yay the audio editing is finally done. Now for the automated mix-down, rendering to MP3, writing words to go with the sounds, and uploading.

via TweetDeck

Editing is going more slowly that I had hoped. Plod. Plod. Plod. Plod. Plod.

via TweetDeck

RT @firstdogonmoon: @s_bridges Remember Scott, compassion costs nothing. [Bullshit. It’s $250 an hour these days, plus cab fares.]

via TweetDeck

Plodding through the editing of the “Patch Monday” podcast. Interesting material, but I’m not in the right mood for it today. Plod plod.

via TweetDeck

I’m slightly disappointed that the magpies didn’t arrive until just after the battery ran out. Oh well, back to the house I go…

via TweetDeck

Note 1: The birds falls silent when I start talking. 2: Forgot to check the Zoom H4n’s battery. Fortunately, I just managed to get it done.

via TweetDeck

For reasons now unclear, last night I decided the start of the “Patch Monday” podcast would be recorded out in the scrub. I go there now.

via TweetDeck

“Long term devotee to social media”, @PardusXY? Like I’m a devotee to toothbrushes? Or shoelaces? Bah! They’re just tools. /cc @annetreasure

via TweetDeck

Note to self: Twitter is not IRC.

via TweetDeck

Me hands @ssharwood a tissue.

via TweetDeck

@jmacmullin I may or may may not talk publicly about the big decision when I get to that part of the day. I have other things to do first.

via TweetDeck in reply to jmacmullin

Mon plan: Complete “Patch Monday” podcast; write op-ed for @CSO_Online; make a big decision about web development; evening TBA.

via TweetDeck

@NathanaelB It’s OK, with a Prius you can still overdose on Smug.

via TweetDeck in reply to NathanaelB

Had I realised it were Empire Day I’d have planned to do a special imperial edition of “The 9pm Edict”. Such a shame. 6P.

via TweetDeck

Thank you. It’s from the Daily Mail, you know. In your heart, you knew that already. arseh.at/t4r

via TweetDeck

I have compiled a selection of striking and most attractive avatars into which I shall be changing during the course of the day.

via TweetDeck

Pax Britannia, everyone! Happy Empire Day. Oh, I mean British Commonwealth… oh no I mean just Commonwealth Day. For everyone, you know.

via TweetDeck

Monday. Told you.
