A certain podcast returned, finally, yesterday: “The 9pm Shire”, and you may listen. There are shellfish. stilgherrian.com/edict/00024/

via Janetter for Mac

I’m kinda sick of everything now, so I’m going to return to reading my book about submarine warfare in WWII. After one quick plug…

@scottcarson1957 @joshgnosis I cannot speak out against Greek things because of certain local demographics.

If only yoghurt were more succeptible to Molotov cocktails.* (Arson is not recommended as a form oif protest.)

via Janetter for Mac

May the Yoghurt Menace finally be brought under control.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @joshgnosis: Another failed Yoghurt store closed up in Newtown. It’s slowly ending. [Thank the gods for that!]

Well that’s dinner sorted. In the meantime, I see the number of arsehats on the internet has not been decreased.

via Janetter for Mac

Hah! PC Matic TV advert for anti-virus software, trusted to be “made and supported in America”. McAfee and Symantec are from India, y’see.

“Benghazi”! DRINK!

@scottcarson1957 It was a young elephant. No Viagra required.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

I misspelled asthma. Damn.

via Janetter for Mac

A woman is now demonstrating a new ashthma medication with the aid of a compliant elephant.

via Janetter for Mac

A studio guest is arguming that imprisoning people forever is “not necessariy” indefinite imprisonment. Alas, we go to a break.

via Janetter for Mac

Let’s be clear here, @chris23. @mpesce and I are completely independent operatives, quite possiby from completely different planets.

“Next, more than 40,000 criminal aliens, some of them killers, have been released by the Feds.”

Important Note: People do know what quote marks mean, right?

via Janetter for Mac

O’Reilly: “You get loons on the Right… they are out there… but they don’t tell you that you can’t criticise certain people.”

via Janetter for Mac

And now everyone is shouting at each other. Seven minutes past the hour.

via Janetter for Mac

“The Left attacks, attacks, attacks, using minorities as flashpoints.”

via Janetter for Mac

Bill O’Reilly is now lecturing us on how he speaks out against bigotry.

via Janetter for Mac

MORE POLITICALLY CORRECT MADNESS!

via Janetter for Mac

“Tonight, a special report on how the Left uses race and political correctness to attack those who don’t agree with Leftist tenets.” Oh OK.

via Janetter for Mac

@scottcarson1957 Indeed. They claimed the harem included “underage girls”. A quick mention, but glorious propaganda (whether true or false).

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

@scottcarson1957 They’re both good theories, but I’d go the book option. Blackmail would be more complicated.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

@vealmince I never threatened anyone. Indeed, I adised people to NOT arm me. But yes.

Apparently all the discussions of women’s rights under Islam that I’ve heard on “the Left media” must just be me hallicuinating. Rock on!

via Janetter for Mac

Apparenty in “the Left media” it’s impossible to talk about women’s rights under Islam because that makes you an Islamaphobe or a racist.

via Janetter for Mac

@scottcarson1957 There’s a lot to that young woman’s story that derves proper telling, I think.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

Female guest called the niqab “a sensory deprivation chamber” and “an ambulatory body bag”. Rightio then.

via Janetter for Mac

Host: “Superfluous things” [stopping abortion] are brought up as a war on women when there’s a real war on women elsewhere in the world.”

via Janetter for Mac

“I can’t really tell you much about the Sultan’s lifestyle, but I did kind of fall in love with him for a while.”

via Janetter for Mac

@scottcarson1957 Now now, Scott, she was the innocent whitebread American girl in all this. She had “wanderlust”, she said.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

Actually, Ms Lauren didn’t tell us about her experiences. She just said she went to a nightclub, and was asked if the Sultan broke Sharia.

via Janetter for Mac

Jillian Lauren is now telling us about her experiences as a member of the Sultan of Brunei’s harem. “Well, I’m not an expert in Sharia law…”

To judge by the quantity of advertising, constipation is stil a serious problem in America.

“A lot of things are going on in my life, and the last thing I want to be thinking about is my dentures.”

via Janetter for Mac

@scottcarson1957 Yeah I’ve been watching this for less than an hour and my brain is turning to jelly. It simply doesn’t make any sense.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

Oh there’s no way that I can keep up with this concentrated stream of awesomeness.

“The next step isn’t a Twitter campaign, it’s a bullet in the head of everyone involved.”

via Janetter for Mac

Man in suit: “This hashtag is exactly what the terrorists want.” THIS IS UTTERLY UTTERLY BRILLIANT.

via Janetter for Mac

Now the host is now sulking because the Forbes correspondent has countered with “These people are exercising their freedom of speech.”

via Janetter for Mac

Host: “Hands up who thinks the hashtag campaign is effective?” Guest: “Well as an entertainment reporter, this is what I can say…”

via Janetter for Mac

Now he’s asking for comment from his studio guests, a dozen or so angry radio talk show hosts etc shouting that Hillary Clinton was wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

To prove how ignorant the Left is about radical Islam, he’s showing a montage of clips of him saying the Left is ignorant of radical Islam.

via Janetter for Mac

“That’s not the only issue whne it comes to the ignorance of the Left,” says Hannity. [I’m assuming the name of the program is his name.]

via Janetter for Mac

Next up, a discussion on “the ignorance of the Left when it comes to the rise of radical Islam”.

via Janetter for Mac

So somehow that segment failed to resolve the issue of Christians versus Homosexuals. But there was a lot of shouting.

via Janetter for Mac

Ventana 2012 Arroyo Seco / Monterey Pinot Noir. That’s going into my glass, it’s not on Fox News.

via Janetter for Mac

Some confused story about the oppression of Christians because they can’t speak out against homosexuals.

via Janetter for Mac

Adverts for real estate agent, lawn seeders, business hotel, telco business bundle, toilet cisterns, retirement planning, cruise ships.

Oh. Glenn Greenwald is on now, with a HUGE crane shot rotating around him as he’s introduced.

“I did not know what it was like to be a non-smoker, but now I do.”

THE MAN WHO HAS SUCCESSFULLY QUIT SMOKING IS NOW FONDLING AN EGGPLANT FROM HIS OWN GARDEN.

Advertising for ride-on lawn mowers, a new bank, Alzheimer’s disease, Mitsubishi cars on credit, quit-smoking products.

“Why are we hearing about veterans waiting months to see a doctor while a soldier who betrayed his country gets gender treatment?”

via Janetter for Mac

“I just can’t stress enough the horrors that religious people around the world are experiencing, not just Christians.”

via Janetter for Mac

A Sudanese court has sentenced a pregnant woman, US citizen, to be hanged because she married a Christian. The President hasn’t done enough.

via Janetter for Mac

I have come up with a much better plan. I am going to spend the evening drinking wine and watching Fox News.

@ssharwood You can’t replace my GP and his recommendations for Russian porn sites.

@ClaireRPorter I was close, so I’m actually outside there now. It’s packed, of course.

via Plume for Android in reply to ClaireRPorter

I suspect I am currently giving myself food poisoning.

via Plume for Android

@ClaireRPorter Well I’m essentially starting that process NOW, ‘cos I’m starving. Whereabouts are you?

So Australia, do you know that I posted a new podcast yesterday? “The 9pm Shire” is up. stilgherrian.com/edict/00024/

@BXGD That’s still a way better deal than any Australian telco offers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BXGD

@ClaireRPorter It’s a fantastic evening, tho it’ll go down to 12C or so at night. I’m thinking of a wander up thru Chinatown to North Beach.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ClaireRPorter

@BXGD Is that the cap on 4G speeds, or the cap on all data?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BXGD

RT @oscarsclaws: “@stilgherrian: I am logged in. instagram.com/p/oEyFXyCFqh/” Please define nothing. [Well, is anything happening?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oscarsclaws

@ClaireRPorter I haven’t any plans for the evening yet, but suspect I’ll be looking for something low key. Stay tuned.

@SnarkyPlatypus Last time I was in Japantown there was an Anime and Cosplay convention on. It was seriously weird.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Not neat Japantown, but you’ve given me an idea for the weekend.

@dahowlett Oh I got that it was Derek with the problems. And thank you.

Unless I go to the art gallery, I’m done with San Jose. I might stroll to the Caltrain depot and head to San Francisco earlier than planned.

The guy at the cheese stall in the San Pedro Square Markets loved my accent, so he kept giving me cheese and blueberries.

Fri plan: Brunch and wander, San Jose; 1440 Caltrain to San Francisco; record stuff for “The 9pm Edict” en route, probably; relaxed evening.

Curious weather patterns. It’s going to be 30C today in San Jose but just 21C in San Francisco.

via Janetter for Mac

@garystark @franksting I’m sure they don’t serve alcohol at American Shooters, but the Leatherneck Club of Greater Nevada is next door.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garystark

@franksting Thanks. If you think that’s patient, you should hear the unedited audio.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@elmurfj Oh thank you. I’d almost forgotten I’d written that. I must get @walkleys to send me a copy, since I’m not an MEAA member.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to elmurfj

San Francisco accommodation booked. Las Vegas will have to wait until another time.

via Janetter for Mac

@franksting Clearly he and I are a match made in heaven.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, San Jose, like all of Silicon Valley, seems to think that things must be better if you’re paying more money for it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

That should be in my script: “More outrage, fewer facts. This is The 9pm Edict.”

via Janetter for Mac

“Is there anything I simply must do before leaving San Jose?” “Buy a ticket?”

via Janetter for Mac

I was about to ask whether there’s anything I sumply must see or do in San Jose before I leave but then I started laughing and can’t stop.

@snurb_dot_info One-year license terms are fairly standard for anything published online. Fear of how the scary internet might then change.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to snurb_dot_info

I actually know the composer / publisher / performer rights distinction quite well, but I’m following @kcarruthers advice to ignore facts.

via Janetter for Mac

A more important question is how we can prevent astronauts having those dreadful moustaches.

via Janetter for Mac

This alleged copyright expert says it’s Bowie. Must be true ‘cos he has a book with a two-part title. ottawacitizen.com/touch/story.ht… @snurb_dot_info

via Janetter for Mac

And how many people actually went back to watch the stupid video again? Or would have watched again until told it might go away? Bah.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s so cute that people can’t quite bring themselves to blame Bowie. “The law” isn’t stopping him granting a license, unless he’d sold out.

via Janetter for Mac

@kcarruthers I HAVE TOTAL REVERENCE FOR POP CULTURE WHICH IS WHY I DISPOSED IT AND MOVED ON SINGING ASTRONAUTS ARE SO LAST YEAR.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers It’s just a fucking song. Your little popstar astronaut can sing a new song. You can enjoy a new song. Stop living in the past.
