@plumrid Some little glitches I don’t worry about. A whole sound crashing in is too distracting, though, I reckon.

via TweetDeck in reply to plumrid

Irritated to discover a mixing error in the podcast. Will upload a fixed version soon. It’s just the theme playing at the wrong point.

“The 9pm Planet of Fascist Delusions” is now also on SoundCloud. soundcloud.com/skankmedia/e00…

@MadScotty And winter is coming a damn sight faster that this file is uploading.

@OzNigel @jxeeno “Conniptions”? No, the is just a thing that’s part of my life. Like all technology, it can be good or evil.

via TweetDeck in reply to OzNigel

The main recording of “The 9pm Edict” podcast is done. Now a final mix, then package i for upload etc, and it’ll be ready for you.

@Nightwyrm I mean, you lose all the useful features like auto-categories and whatever, but hey.

via TweetDeck in reply to Nightwyrm

@Nightwyrm Unless you need the app aspect, just encrypt them and shoe ‘em into a generic cloud storage provider. Or two, for safety.

via TweetDeck in reply to Nightwyrm

@Nightwyrm Google does generally try to play nice, but engineers like to explore, and can move ahead of the curve in their enthusiasm.

via TweetDeck in reply to Nightwyrm

@Nightwyrm I’d not store photos with a company that also explores the boundaries of what can be done with data matching…

via TweetDeck in reply to Nightwyrm

@garthk Quite possibly. But I’m not going back to check.

via TweetDeck in reply to garthk

@Nightwyrm Trust them to do what? Make sure they’re not lost? Keep them private?

via TweetDeck in reply to Nightwyrm

It’s just over half an hour until sunset here at Wentworth Falls. The long night of the Winter Solstice begins so soon.

via TweetDeck

Thank you, @developerjack @chrisjrn @SnarkyPlatypus, for conforming the good sense of all my decisions.

via TweetDeck

Meh. I’ll leave them in. They happen just as I mention the Dalai Lama, so there’s that.

via TweetDeck

Note to self: Turn off Grindr notifications before starting to record a tricky and fairly long voice take. Can I be arsed doing a re-take?

via TweetDeck

“Hello, I’m Stilgherrian. Welcome to The Edict” is finally said 35 minutes 15 seconds into the podcast.

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad I’m more than 30 minutes in, and the opening monologue is still going.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

Tonight’s episode of “The 9pm Edict” is becoming a bit of a rant. Yeah, I know. But it is.

@purserj I’ve completely lost track of how this podcast works.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

For reasons which are not entirely clear, I am now going to record some of these links outside in the bushes.

via TweetDeck

@KetanJ0 Thanks for those two. I’m already over-long with my script, I think, but I’ll see how I go.

via TweetDeck in reply to KetanJ0

@kcarruthers Yes, that is correct. Also, Australia’s favourite Attorney-General is very, very bad.

via TweetDeck in reply to kcarruthers

@KetanJ0 Thanks. This is feeding into the episode of “The 9pm Edict” podcast that will be posted tonight.

via TweetDeck in reply to KetanJ0

So, I requested this, and @ArtOfBrandis @EthelYarwood made it happen. Was that good or bad? twitter.com/EthelYarwood/s…

via TweetDeck

@BXGD @AshGhebranious @ABCNews24 As @KeithConlon taught me decades ago, “The best ad libs are always written down first.”

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@KetanJ0 Don’t worry, I’ve found it.

via TweetDeck

@KetanJ0 Sir, my search skills have failed me. The other day you tweeted part of a report saying it was based on six [?] people’s feelings?

via TweetDeck

@ArtOfBrandis @mpesce I can imagine! My request is but a minor thing. I have other ways of annoying Australia’s favourite Attorney-General.

via TweetDeck in reply to ArtOfBrandis

@OaaSvc @R_Chirgwin That’s smaller than I thought, but my Adelaide figure was a back-guesstimate from the colony’s total in 1881.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

@ArtOfBrandis @mpesce Do you do requests? Can we please have Brandis as Sean Connery’s character from “Zardoz”? pic.twitter.com/D4P9zkcHbq

via TweetDeck in reply to ArtOfBrandis

Of course, production time will always expand to fill whatever schedule is available.

via TweetDeck

For reasons which will become clear in due course, I am now listening to this tune right here. youtube.com/watch?v=nFvRvS…

via TweetDeck

I’ve decided what I’m talking about in “The 9pm Edict”, and gathered most of the content. An easy day of final script, record, edit ahead.

via TweetDeck

@OaaSvc I got the SA numbers from a family history site that cited census figures, but that’s pre-Federation. ABC might still have it.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

@OaaSvc A few more than that. Around 120,000 in Adelaide, 275,000 in the whole of South Australia. (“Excluding Aborigines.”)

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

@kcarruthers I think @phbarratt is cheating. It’s easy to do his stuff when such vast quantities of raw material are being provided.

via TweetDeck in reply to kcarruthers

@OaaSvc Oh the swearing happens pretty quickly.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

@OaaSvc Heh. I just looked up the population of Adelaide in 1881 as part of the set-up for a throw-away joke about drugs. Pathetic.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

@vealmince Well not all of us have had the pleasure of working for Fairfax. Oh wait, I worked for Fairfax for a time too.

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

@OaaSvc I know. Sigh. That’s why “The 9pm Edict” takes so bloody long to research and write. I fact-check it and link to all the sources.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

Checking facts.

via TweetDeck

@OaaSvc Knowing what I know about your worldview, yes, it will anger you.

Here’s the full text of Crusader Rabbit’s speech to the NSW Liberal Party State Council last night. pm.gov.au/media/2015-06-…

Is it just me, or does the Rabbit look a bit tired and emotional in this week’s “A message from the Prime Minister”? youtube.com/watch?v=4ro8AU…

@kateileaver I cannot, however, type accurately this month. I am appalled with myself.

via TweetDeck in reply to kateileaver

@kateileaver I know I am no arguing against my ow idea, but I am nothing if not flexible.

via TweetDeck in reply to kateileaver

@kateileaver Yes. Dealing with no-one but the kind of people who start the day with alcohol and continue from there. It’d be full of win.

@kateileaver I believe that the hospitality industry is quite traditional for those who are less successful at writing, or acting. Or life.

via TweetDeck in reply to kateileaver

@BXGD @AshGhebranious @ABCNews24 I… I thought I was a professional. Sad.

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@kateileaver I think it’s possibly the best idea I’ve had all week!

via TweetDeck in reply to kateileaver

Look, @AshGhebranious, how could anyone at @ABCNews24 possibly have known this? twitter.com/AshGhebranious…

via TweetDeck

I tell you what, producing this podcast would be easier if I had a producer. And a researcher. And a personal breakfast sommelier.

If you are a Sunday morning kind of reader, well, I’m about to re-pimp my writing from this week. There are three things. Here they come.

Sun plan: Produce “The 9pm Edict” podcast (begun); Weekly Wrap; deal with this mess; mark the Winter Solstice in a slightly inadequate way.

via TweetDeck

@mcbridesride That’s always been part of what @2ser does, but I did get the impression that the lineup had been boosted.

via TweetDeck in reply to mcbridesride

Does anyone have audio of Abbott’s speech to the NSW Liberal Party from last night? Or video from which I could extract the audio?

Crusader Rabbit reckons letting courts decide things is ‘perilous’. Glad he’s got a grasp of separation of powers. smh.com.au/federal-politi…

I’m still having thoughts about doing a breakfast program. Somewhere. Somehow.

via TweetDeck

@dr_nic Break a leg. I’d listen in, except that I’m sourcing audio right now and have to listen to that.

via TweetDeck

@dr_nic @juhasaarinen That would have to be Saarinen on the left, because I’m clean-shaven in all the visible places.

via TweetDeck in reply to dr_nic

@dr_nic @juhasaarinen The words “favourite” and “denim shirt” should be separated by “arson target is a”.

via TweetDeck in reply to dr_nic

@juhasaarinen @dr_nic @zoenl @cherchezlafemmo @gingerBFG @2ser Indeed. I divide my media appearances into pants-on and pants-off categories.

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

@dr_nic @zoenl @cherchezlafemmo @gingerBFG @2ser @juhasaarinen And yes, I realise this is all a bit of a kettle-potting exercise.

via TweetDeck in reply to dr_nic

@dr_nic @zoenl @cherchezlafemmo @gingerBFG @2ser @juhasaarinen Good to see that you’ve dressed for the radio, Nic.

@carolduncan @GreenJ It’s a strategy that could be applied to so many life situations.

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

@GreenJ I suggest barricading yourself in with broken furniture and empty sherry bottles, and shouting at passers-by.
