So is YouTube Red a rebranding of RedTube or what?

@dobes @smidgey Maybe I just look like that. I’m getting on a bit.

I am leaving the Gangster 40th and the Cricket Club Piss-Up to their own devices, despite the publican’s objections. Village life.

The smoke from the Jameson Valley burn has settled over Wentworth Falls village tonight. Not so pleasant.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@smidgey Oh? That’s weird, ‘cos it should be much higher res. Can you screenshot to @dobes thanks?

@franksting Mate, you only get a plaque when you’re dead.

One of the old blokes at the bar asks, “What’s it like sitting over here?”
“I feel ten years older,” I said.
Bar staff dissolve in laughter.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I’ve had to eat this at the front bar itself because PEOPLE ARE SITTING IN MY USUAL SEAT.

@NuclearAnthro You’ve got a wait ahead. I only had a birthday a couple weeks ago.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

@interrogativus It’s tempting, but I have things to do tomorrow. And I didn’t bring recording gear to make a doco.

@RudiEdsall A shitload of money gas been spent on this party.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to RudiEdsall

And the other function is the local cricket club end-of-season piss-up. So this will all end perfectly.

Even the bathroom signs have been themed. This is one hell of a 40th. pic.twitter.com/uMxOmfh6yG

This is insane. They’ve even emptied the pokies room to theme that whole section as 1920s gangster. pic.twitter.com/QtC9aJCVgU

@NuclearAnthro Yeah look they know me here. Wentworth Falls is a village.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to NuclearAnthro

The dining room is packed out. It’s a limited menu, and we can only order 1800-1900 or 2000-2100. Should I head to another village?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Some of these people don’t seem to understand who usually sits where in this front bar. IT IS PANDEMONIUM.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Oh it’s all going off at The Grand View. Two functions including a 40th. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Awaiting my Magic Transport into the nearest village.

@franksting @PlaneTalking @traceyb65 I’ll see what the publican at The Grand View can muster up.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@franksting @PlaneTalking @traceyb65 This is a fine idea, but the local is mostly wine, and I can’t be arsed heading to Katoomba tonight.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Sat plan, 1615 update: Dinner at the pub tonight; all shopping etc moved to Sunday, when there’ll also be podcast production.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@PlaneTalking @franksting @traceyb65 The whiskey is the more important concept here, Ben.

via TweetDeck in reply to PlaneTalking

@michaelneale @haruki_zaemon Actually I take that back. The Grose Valley is the next one over towards the back left of that image.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale @haruki_zaemon Yep, my photo is pretty much looking straight down the Grose Valley to the NNE.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

I’m glad those same ENE breezes are keeping smoke from the Jamieson Valley burn clear of me, @franksting @traceyb65 pic.twitter.com/h4f2EgdxSP

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@franksting @traceyb65 And yes, you have ENE winds keeping the Sydney basin clear for now.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@traceyb65 @franksting Heh. The smoke has a blue-ish tinge to it that the fog doesn’t have, presumably to do with the angle of the light.

via TweetDeck in reply to traceyb65

The view across the valley is basically this, @franksting @traceyb65, though the photo is of fog one morning. pic.twitter.com/7CKHLRCmCR

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

As long as you blame someone or something else, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Sat plan, an observation: This is not going to plan. I blame the smoke, which has turned out to be slightly worse than I’d thought.

So websites that remove the adverts if you subscribe or register. Doesn’t that mean paying advertisers can only reach the lazy cheapskates?
