Inspiration as a Service.

via Janetter for Mac

Whenever anyone says something was “inspiring” ask them what, precisely, it inspired them to do and how, measurably, that’s turned out.

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelneale Hah! I think you forget how innumerate most of the population is.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

@BenMcCombe Well, yes, but the unrelated beliefs of the interviewer are irrelevant when the interviewee seems to be giving honest testimony.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BenMcCombe

@trib What a mealy-mouthed and logically fallacious way to try to discredit a critic! Not impressed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to trib

TED? Bah! At least other people flogging the temporary rush from a dopamine hit have the moral decency to be selling street drugs.

via Janetter for Mac

@pdyxs @expectproblems Ah, the “you’ll get exposure” chestnut! So the event is free to attend? No-one else paid? No? Then fuck right off.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pdyxs

@trib Best leave a few days before trying to spin me away from this. I’m genuinely disgusted by what I’ve just heard, whatever the category.

via Janetter for Mac

@trib Indeed, and I’ve just heard the direct testimony of a participant as opposed to the hype. I’ve just heard the second of “two sides”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to trib

Wow. I’d filed TED under “wankers” but after listening to that I think they should instead be filed under “criminal scams”. Seriously wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

Seriously, listen to all 14 minutes, all the way to the end, and then consider whether TED should not be spit upon. youtube.com/watch?v=_hwLMB…

via Janetter for Mac

From a story I read, yes, @D_Keating, the full TED conference like the one just in Long Beach (not the regional TEDx) is $7500.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh even better. The speakers, who are not paid, have to SHARE their hotel accommodation for a week with someone who they don’t choose?

via Janetter for Mac

They charge $7500 to attend TED but don’t pay their speakers? FFS, I knew there was dodginess in there but… Jesus wept.

via Janetter for Mac

TED doesn’t pay? WTF?

@TurnbullMalcolm I missed the trigger for the photos you’re RTing. Was it a specific theme, or just “Hey what’s it like where you are?”

Well, @ThreeDRadio @loupascale, “remembering” is perhaps too strong a word, given the circumstances.

Suddenly remembering @ThreeDRadio’s OB from the Adelaide Fringe that hot summer when Two Dogs Alcoholic Lemonade was a thing… @loupascale

@garystark And neither of which are “Adelaide Arts Festival”. You’d be making a big mistake to challenge @loupascale or me on this. ;)

Why is calling it the “Adelaide Arts Festival” when its name is the “Adelaide Festival”? Falling at the very first hurdle!

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Mes euphémismes sont insuffisantes. Ils manquent de vigueur. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @foomeister: Is that the new euphemism? It’s somewhat lacking in vigour. [True, though euphemisms lacking vigour are perfect for .]

via Janetter for Mac

@ben_hr @foomeister Yeah this is going a bit more wrong a bit more quickly than I’d imagined.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ben_hr

By comparison, I don’t enjoy and ,maybe aren’t very good to washing down a printing press, but I’ve made a living from it (briefly).

via Janetter for Mac

Or more breakfast-friendly, @foomeister, I like and am good at playing with kelpies on a beach.

via Janetter for Mac

Hang on, @foomeister, there’s no right for anyone to “make a living from what they love and do well”. I like, say, masturbating.

RT @glengyron: Die KulturSektor. It’s a multi-function polis for people with bad haircuts.

via Janetter for Mac

Though of course I assume that the Cultural Sector will have to be in western Sydney because, well, Culture.

via Janetter for Mac

“Cronulla Cultural Sector”, with tax concessions and over-rides on local planning laws.

via Janetter for Mac

“Cultural sector”. Apparently there’s a “sector” that does culture. on our behalf. Is it in Cronulla?

via Janetter for Mac

“Arts Minister Simon Crean”, a phrase that continues to defy rational analysis.

via Janetter for Mac

‘Culture of complaint” is an irregular noun, second-person. The third-person is “spoiled, selfish whingers”.

What’s a “Sheehan”, @19bk69? Should I call a plumber?
