Well, even with @NicholasFryer’s astute* observations, we’ve got maybe an hour before the podcast is posted. We’ll get there though.

via TweetDeck

@NicholasFryer That was seriously well played. Such a bold move, and yet… Ah, you know me too well.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

Apparently @NicholasFryer is totally correct in every manner possible, and I am pissing myself laughing.

@OaaSvc @Wolfie_Rankin @timpoliti @firstdogonmoon @SenatorLudlam No. I’m busy. In fact, I’m rearranging the production plan for… reasons.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

@SnarkyPlatypus Since I don’t watch TV much, I haven’t really noticed. I should pop in and watch for a while.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@adlrope Well, that’s by my internal style book. @guardianstyle may well disagree. I’m not sure of their convention for product names.

via TweetDeck in reply to adlrope

@adlrope Yes. It’s the name of a product, so a proper noun. Like Holden or MacBook.

via TweetDeck in reply to adlrope

If @SBS keeps posting these animated GIFs, I am so going to Artarmon and committing righteous arson.

via TweetDeck

@Wolfie_Rankin @timpoliti @firstdogonmoon @SenatorLudlam I did not. Please don’t tell me anything more. About anything. Ever.

via TweetDeck in reply to Wolfie_Rankin

I just thought I should give you an update.

via TweetDeck

The phrase “giant putrescent Fleshlight” may have been used.

via TweetDeck

This podcast is taking significantly longer to record than I thought, but it’s already broached bestiality and necrophilia, so there’s that.

via TweetDeck

OK, back to the podcast work, or I wont get this finished.

@CosmicRami @SnarkyPlatypus There’s quite a few lists like this around, but Colvin seems to be the one who’s on all of them.

via TweetDeck in reply to CosmicRami

@SnarkyPlatypus Kevin Colvin is a very special person in the history of the internet, in my opinion.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

That’s really all I have to say at this point. Oh well. I shall return later to say something that may be slightly more interesting.

via TweetDeck

As evening falls, I’m settling into the final bits of pre-production for “The 9pm Edict” podcast. With luck, everything will be done by 9pm.

@CosmicRami I’m pretty sure that once these three specials are out of the way, I’ll offer TWO MINUTES HATE as a regular feature.

via TweetDeck in reply to CosmicRami

Um, that was Malcolm Tucker, not Malcolm Ticker. Obviously.

via TweetDeck

HAHAHAHA. I still have the words “Mardi Gras” in my Twitter mute filters. Good work, Stilgherrian.

via TweetDeck

Changing the words “Mardi Gras float” to “sling”.

via TweetDeck

I tell you what, though, a TWO MINUTES HATE is around 300 words. At Malcolm Ticker grade, that’s pretty fuckin’ intense.

via TweetDeck

Anyway, @mpesce or not, there will be a live audience for the Public House Forum. I’ll tell you all mid-week how you can be in it.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce @sylmobile Depends. Will you fall asleep on the train?

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@SnarkyPlatypus Yours is scheduled for the next episode, in two weeks from now.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mpesce @sylmobile Yes, Possum. A full 1.2% in from the edge of Australia towards the middle from where you are.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

2. In writing some of the material for the TWO MINUTES HATE you’ve sponsored, I’m starting to worry myself. Disturbing visual imagery!

via TweetDeck

1. “The 9pm Edict” Public House Forum will be recorded on Sat 12 Sep at the Australian Arms Hotel in Penrith. Full details coming mid-week.

via TweetDeck

I’m making good progress on the pre-production for this new episode of “The 9pm Edict” podcast. Two points, briefly…

via TweetDeck

I AM GOING AWAY TO WORK ON THE PODCAST NOW, NO MATTER HOW MANY PLATYPUSES ARE MOUNTING THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND.

via TweetDeck

I agree, @SnarkyPlatypus @19bk69. Something needs to be done about @mtaibbi. Mental health sectioning, Congressional Medal, free ice-cream.

OK, boys and girls, I’m finally heading down the podcast production rabbit hole. I may be some time.

@troyhunt @garthk @dangoodin001 Are you thinking as misdirection, or as a taunt, or both?

Key facts: Lime juice, chilli, garlic, basil, mint, oyster sauce. And kangaroo. Obviously.

@monsieurarion @SnarkyPlatypus The key elements to my usual are to marinate the kangaroo fillet in Mae Ploy red curry paste and lime juice.

via TweetDeck in reply to monsieurarion

@SnarkyPlatypus To a large extent, that’ll depend what I can find in the pantry. Normally it’s red curry, but I’ve run out.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

But first, a kangaroo and lime stir-fry for breakfast.
