@robcorr @barrybateman I’m having trouble applying “interesting” to ANY of the Pistorious stuff. I just don’t see how it’ll get me laid.

Dear Apple, if iTunes 11.0.1 to 11.0.2 is “completely redesigned”, then you’ve forgotten what version numbers are for.

@mpesce It is. Always is. Always has been. Not news. “Choose wisely” is not news. Spending lots of money on shit is not compulsory either.

“It’s still a month until the Royal Easter Show, but many families are worried about how much it’ll all cost.” Peer-reviewed, Nine News?

via Janetter for Mac

@ssharwood Pistorious, yes. I have all the evidence in front of me thanks to Nine News.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

RT @pinnarod: at least they think their audience can read [There is that, I suppose, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac

I love how Nine News is now subtitling a woman speaking in a slightly plummy RP.

via Janetter for Mac

“It’s hard to imagine,” begins a Nine News item. So the story is your lack of imagination? Well done.

I’m coming across to @ssharwood’s theory.

That’d be because the RAN’s tanker and supply capability is thoroughly geb0rken. What did that cost us diplomatically, I wonder?

via Janetter for Mac

I am possibly falling into my usual mistake of wanting to differentiate between confected media narrative and objective reality. Sorry.

via Janetter for Mac

@sewing Is it really being pitched as “fallen hero”. Isn’t it only “hero” because “weird”? He just ran a bit fast. That’s not “hero”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottewing12

@jonoabroad Indeed, and I’m guessing the new residents have things worth stealing. So everyone wins here.

@sewing Plus, “the only reason this is a story in Australia” is the tell. “This is a story because you’ve seen this weird guy on telly.”

That means that Swan Lake could be even older than the Holden Monaro. That’s… that’s just wow. Mind blown.

It has come to my attention that some people claim Swan Lake may have been performed earlier that 1977. It’s possible, I suppose.

Hello, Wednesday, and Happy Birthday to Swan Lake, performed for the first time on this day in 1977.
