@BennettArron It’s the Australian way. More seriously, I was a script consultant on a TV drama series recently, so I’ll ask through them.

via TweetDeck in reply to BennettArron

@OaaSvc @NewtonMark Well yes, it’s just a random jumble of descriptors.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

Hey all you Australian arts & writing wankers, who wants to organise bringing @BennettArron’s sitcom workshop here? twitter.com/BennettArron/s…

via TweetDeck

@BennettArron @SnarkyPlatypus This sort of event is outside my skill set though. I’ll ask on the Twitters.

via TweetDeck in reply to BennettArron

@SnarkyPlatypus @NewtonMark Yes, but on Jack’d you MUST choose one, and only one, of those six “scenes”. pic.twitter.com/Yj8hjzFINB

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@NewtonMark LTR is long term relationship. But you could be a twink. With a bit of work. In low lighting. Maybe blindfold and drug everyone.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, I’m sure we can persuade @BennettArron to come to Australia again.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@semibogan @snare We’re still no closer, are we. Craig Wright has been, er, moved to a different list, but that’s all that’s happened.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

@NewtonMark But you can only choose one, and you must choose one.

@NewtonMark It’s HIV-positive, with the rather offensive notion that the diseased people can go play over there.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Which are worse? Bitcoiners? Amway sellers? Or One Direction fans?

via TweetDeck

@snare Well, yes. But my God, can’t it spawn a cult!

Just as an aside, I am SO over “The blockchain will solve world poverty, cure baldness, and mix the perfect dry martini”.

@Spoonyman @AbstractCode As in “discover the body”? Or as in “frighten the kiddies”?

via TweetDeck in reply to Spoonyman

I wouldn’t be averse to a longship…

@rwerkh I was on the board of the AIDS Council of SA, and a contractor at one point, in the early 1990s. Even bigger issues back then.

@SnarkyPlatypus @NewtonMark I’ve kept even the apps I don’t use because their taxonomies fascinate me. They’re gloriously inept.

@NewtonMark It gets worse in some of the gay apps.

@maddythecatlady @SnarkyPlatypus In terms of “tidying up my affairs” they wouldn’t have the faintest idea where to begin.

via TweetDeck in reply to maddythecatlady

@maddythecatlady @SnarkyPlatypus My own case: dad dead decades ago, mum in the twilight home, haven’t spoken to my brother in 10+ years.

via TweetDeck in reply to maddythecatlady

Oh, that probably sounded bitter. It’s just a neutral observation. About what cunts family can be.

I’m well used to occupying one demographic niche or another that doesn’t fit neatly into organisations’ generic processes.

Yeah, this is the sort of thing, though the arsehole boss would then dock your wages. twitter.com/peterw/status/…

The phrase “quick hand-job behind the rowing club sheds” just jumped into my head for some reason.

@SnarkyPlatypus @Pollytics It’s a tribal marker, like knowing whether they face-fucked a dead pig or their very live niece.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @Pollytics It’s a question only asked in the circles where the question is important.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Pollytics @SnarkyPlatypus This is why the entitled ones like Joe Hockey literally have no idea how the other half live.

via TweetDeck in reply to Pollytics

@Pollytics @SnarkyPlatypus I asked my mother whether she was sending my brother to Princes too. “What for?”, she said.

via TweetDeck in reply to Pollytics

@Pollytics @SnarkyPlatypus Yeah we sent my brother to one of those schools. I was a real imposter at Princes.

via TweetDeck in reply to Pollytics

@SnarkyPlatypus There was a school journal, but its string sciences focus meant there was also a Science Journal. And excellent teachers.

@SnarkyPlatypus And for Catholics, Christian Brothers for the Anglos, and Rostrevor for the wogs (mostly Italian).

@SnarkyPlatypus Yep, St Peters for the Anglicans, and Prince Alfred for the Uniting Church, like Newington. pac.edu.au

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus That tended to stifle any teachers who attempted to control me.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus After that I thought, fuck it, you’re paying me to be here, I’ll do whatever I want. Don’t like it? I’ll leave if you like.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus However those with the correct birthright made it damn clear that my sort wasn’t welcome.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@hicksfilosopher No, but from the name I assume it’s just awful?

via TweetDeck in reply to hicksfilosopher

@SnarkyPlatypus That’s what the school is selling. It’s why, as I realised at 14, my fees were waived “by invitation of the school council”.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The prefects grew the very best marijuana in the headmaster’s own private garden. (True story, it was an enormous scandal.)

via TweetDeck

And everyone, just everyone at the school got an A, or maybe a B+. Except for the boys we never saw ever again.

via TweetDeck

Well the oxen took care of that, because they were magical. You just has to chant “Ollie Ollie Oxen!” and VOOM! twitter.com/erkpod/status/…

via TweetDeck

We were taught history by actual veterans of the 30 Years War.

via TweetDeck

In fitting with our status as Future Leader, the oxen wore garlands of so many different flowers, and their horns were burnished bright.

via TweetDeck

Of course back when I went to school, it took three days to get there by ox-cart.

@SnarkyPlatypus @FarrellPF I’ll leave it stand, though, because I’m not a big fan of the memory hole. Own what you say and do.

@riskybusiness The kind invitation was one in a series printed in delightful shades of orange ink, then red.

@riskybusiness Not yet. I’m just RSVPing to their kind invitation to lodge and, should it be convenient, perhaps pay some tax.

@19bk69 Yep. RT’d it earlier. And yeah, it’s true.

via TweetDeck in reply to 19bk69

Sorting out my tax tar-pit won’t be fun, but my experience has always been that the ATO tries to make it work.

via TweetDeck

OK, the ATO officer came back, offered timing suggestions that make my tasks less stressful. Friendly, professional, informative. Sorted.

via TweetDeck

Sending sarcastic tweets while back on hold, as the ATO figures out how to deal with me.

I just love* these hand-wavey numbers. And “benefits”. And “community”. Always show the totals, never breakdowns. twitter.com/joannejacobs/s…

Calling the ATO. Listening to low-fi piano dreck.

@AtomicMPC The concept does have merit, even if I say so myself. I’ll certainly put more thought into it.

via TweetDeck in reply to AtomicMPC

Note to self: Pitch a new TV panel show called “Rule 34”. Guests are divided into teams and presented with, um, “physical challenges”.

Seriously, Australians, you need to watch this video. Wind turbines can only be the beginning. youtube.com/watch?v=_c6Hsi…

@SnarkyPlatypus Mate, rainbows are made by chemtrails. Rainbows could bring any damn thing. Lock’n’load! youtube.com/watch?v=_c6Hsi…

@SnarkyPlatypus You need both hands for an assault rifle, you see, otherwise it’s not safe. So you need to have all the mescaline first.

No, but it reminds me I’m invited to [REDACTED] in the US and scoff peyote and mescaline and shoot assault rifles. twitter.com/Adrian_Dodd/st…

Ooh! The rye bread has started to ferment. With a bit of luck there’ll be some ergot on it too, and that would improve things.

@Djelibeybi @RogueAmoeba So would I. I haven’t done one live yet. In just took all the mics into a Zoom H6 and mixed it in post.

@mattdasilva Yes. You perhaps haven’t connected the recording failing and being abandoned with there not being a new podcast today.

According to @spreaker there were 40 people listening to the live stream last night, and the only copies are in your minds.

@mattt111 This would never have happened in an analog studio.

@MolksTVTalk Thanks, Steve. No-one died, and I’ve just rescheduled the recording. But it’s a pain in the arse, and not in a good way.

The podcast fucking up last night has put me into a foul mood.

@brentspargo No, are they an actual thing, or someone just couldn’t be arsed writing out the whole word?

Hmmm. I’m really quite stressed this morning. I might see if some sausages will relax me.

@SnarkyPlatypus Thank you. It’s one of the clan of 50 or 70 based just east of Wentworth Falls.

Trying to get “Daddy Malcolm’s Love Tunnel” out of my head.

I probably should’ve checked that he wasn’t in acid or anything before I told him that.

Friend messages, worries about a lump in his penis. Told him it was spider eggs, and baby spiders would burst out and eat his entire groin.

Recording of “The 9pm Edict” podcast has been rescheduled to Tuesday night at 2100 AEDT. Probably. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

More of my alleged schedule is in my Weekly Wrap posted last night. More on the photo at stilgherrian.com/personal/cycle/ twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

Mon plan, draft: Finish certain documents (done); sloth, with sausages and eggs; 1030 Deloitte cyberbriefing; ATO negotiations; collapse.

@damiengwalter The Moon isn’t even there when you do look at it. We were all given secret corneal implants under the guise of “vaccines”.

Rearranging the schedule to deal with last night’s upfuckage and other puddles of entropy.

@lionel_bischoff Nevertheless, your death still draws ever closer. The name of the day matters not.

@feraldata @SnarkyPlatypus Wait. Aren’t you meant to be in Geelong? Or are you just sending a hologram?

via TweetDeck in reply to feraldata

Monday. Already, 8.3% of the year is gone. What have you actually accomplished? Your death draws ever closer. Monday.
