One transcript for each of the four non-wog analog TV channels, each headed “Subjects: Western Sydney”. Poor and elsewhere? Hah, fuck you!

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, Sydney’s west, the media’s Everypauper!

via Janetter for Mac

Bonus cliché points to Peter Overton: “Prime Minister, there are people tonight that can’t even put food in their fridge in Sydney’s west.”

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you, PMO, for emailing that batch of transcripts confirming that Ms Gillard can still accurately repeat dull, patronising soundbites.

via Janetter for Mac

But it’s OK, @adamcaudill @gattaca, ‘cos Evernote said that something something reassurance please enjoy the new interface. Oh FFS.

My evening shall consist of reading, aimless staring, and a sense of comprehensive pointlessness, interspersed with a little self-promotion.

via Janetter for Mac

@rhamilton18 A sideways answer, this, but I’m not claiming to be Changing the World. Anyway, see previous comments about energy levels.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rhamilton18

@yinyangman69 As I said to @Asher_Wolf, I’ve no energy to discuss this now. I’ll respond in a chunk later rather than piecemeal. @AnonyOps

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinyangman69

@yinyangman69 @Asher_Wolf @AnonyOps Sorry, I did not equate concerns about surveillance with political naivety. Don’t verbal me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinyangman69

@rhamilton18 @Asher_Wolf Just for my benefit, what has all this “hell of a lot of something” achieved? Results, not activity?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rhamilton18

I don’t have the energy to discuss my Anonymous op-ed in detail now, @Asher_Wolf, but I’m expecting most responses to be defensive.

via Janetter for Mac

@rhamilton18 @zdnetaustralia Gosh, I’d have thought following the link to my website, or reading the bio on the article, might answer that.

@verge Why where these astronomers in a disk of swirling gas? Should that be “disco”? Confused. @Elmo_Keep

@michaelneale Well it’s good to focus on the most important parts of my argument.

RT @HLMenckenBot: Women are shrewd, resourceful, and acute. [I know. Just ask Fairfax.]

Indeed, @derekbradley, and I’m fairly sure my editors and fellow writers are glad I’m not in the office with them.

Crikey has a crack team? Sounds even more appealling than cycling!

via Janetter for Mac

@markatextor Ah yes, I recall a local newsagent ranting just before the 2010 election about how Gough had ruined Australia. No update since.

via Janetter for Mac

@markatextor So who tends to be more goldfish-memory dumb? Your chooks? Or Australian voters?

via Janetter for Mac

If you’ve emailed me some time since Thursday and it looks like I haven’t replied yet, that is correct.

via Janetter for Mac

@markatextor M’pleasure. The faux “shock horror” of news reporting gets up my nose. They seem so easily shocked and surprised, the goldfish.

via Janetter for Mac

Article thing filed for @zdnetaustralia, presumably replete with brain-fuzzed idiot-mistakes.

@seamus_polsci @bernietb @coldsnacks “Alert but not Alarmed” was a decade ago. But also bullshit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to seamus_polsci

I’ll point out once more than even a brothel-keeper only takes a 40 to 60% cut of the retail price, and they have towels and sheets to wash.

via Janetter for Mac

Even clearer, “the industry that still eats up 90% of the money the audience pays to hear the musicians’ music”. Then add “productivity”.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear All The Media, your stories about “the music industry” should say “the music distribution industry”, to be clear about who’s whinging.

Just imagine what Jason Clare et al would’ve been like during WWII. What’s the complete opposite of “Keep Calm and Carry On”?

Min Jason Clare talking up THE PHEAR of drive-by shootings instead of calming people with the reality of the tiny risk: ZERO FUCKING STARS.

This “Selective shock syndrome” piece by @markatextor should be read by every journalist. afr.com/Page/Uuid/c4a9…

via Janetter for Mac

You know, @littlemisslotus, that would explain rather a lot about how the world currently works.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @littlemisslotus how we all survived without Internet Wisdom is a miracle. Our mums must have been dropping us on our heads constantly :(

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: The Mother Figure / Fertility Cult is very old… it’s just that now a lot of it involves Etsy.

via Janetter for Mac

So I gather from this plethora of advice sites for “mums” (not “mothers”) that being a mother is a new thing in human culture?

Monday? Maybe. I’ll rely on the rational good judgement of the news media to help me start the week a’right.
