TheNTNews DEAR TV PEOPLE, CAN THE NEXT LEADERS DEBATE BE BETWEEN BARNABY JOYCE & ANTHONY ALBANESE? OH, AND CAN JOHNNY DEPP BE THE MODERATOR?

Resisting opening the dark rum, because after that bullshit so-called debate I think I’d drink the entire litre in one go.

@mpesce @unsungsongs It is an app too, actually, though that’s just a wrapper around a web browser.

@margotdate @BuzzFeedOzPol @TheFeedSBS It’s also “on” @SkyNewsAust, but I accept that it may be @ABCaustralia’s fault.

via TweetDeck in reply to margotdate

Here’s another idea. Whenever a leader repeats or hesitates, they have to down a tequila shot, with hosts @LaTrioli and @KAK matching them.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

So, we’re half an hour into this so-called debate. What have we learned so far, @SkyNewsAust? Not. A. Fucking. Thing.

via TweetDeck

Hold on, I’ll just drain this tequila. twitter.com/GreenJ/status/…

via TweetDeck

That said, obviously it’s important* for @SkyNewsAust and other “serious” programs to broadcast the same sound bites over and over again.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Rather than getting @SkyNewsAust to run the debates, we should get @BuzzFeedOzPol onto it, with @TheFeedSBS to do the broadcast.

via TweetDeck

The problem, @SkyNewsAust, is the one identified on air earlier. Press gallery journos ask dull, predictable, inside-the-beltway questions.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

God this is tedious, @SkyNewsAust. Next time, just fill them full of peyote and throw them into a paddling pool full of custard.

@ajbau This is all very complicated now, and I’d rather not think about it.

via TweetDeck in reply to ajbau

Apparently press gallery journos ask predictable questions, says whoever that woman is, and yes they do and it’s part of the goddam problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Right now, that’s mostly Chris Kenny saying that Labor has a problem and will have difficulties, which is obviously unusual for him.

@kcarruthers @zerogeewhiz Look, railway stations just keep catching fire. But this is only the third to catch fire as I was walked past.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to kcarruthers

@zerogeewhiz @kcarruthers Well not now. It might have been earlier, when the evacuation alarm sounded. I was just walking past.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to zerogeewhiz

@kcarruthers You didn’t read the page, which explains all that, did you. It’s two blocks from Hurstville station.

Meh. This is too easy. The @eventbrite page is now live. Stand by.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@DanielOCnr Actually, I could run the whole thing on batteries. MacBook Pro, Zoom H6, and a phone for the 4G uplink.

via TweetDeck in reply to DanielOCnr

@TheDanBarrett Excellent! Now all I have to do is organise some guests. If you’re not careful I’ll grab you! :P

via TweetDeck in reply to TheDanBarrett

There’ll be an @eventbrite page up tonight so you can reserve a free spot in the audience, just so we know the numbers.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Confirmed. “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 3” is at The Ritz Hurstville next Saturday 4 June from midday, and recording starts at 2pm.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Well, with a venue all but sorted for “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 3”, I suppose I should organise guests. I’ll harass people tonight.

@jamver @AusCERT How can say? Maybe we need a long-sleeved shirt for all this.

via TweetDeck in reply to jamver

@NewtonMark Makes one hell of a difference from Friday. Enjoy the return flight!

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

So yeah it’s all but locked in. “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 3” will almost certainly be recorded at The Ritz Hurstville next Saturday.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark Well Bathurst looks lovely today. A good day for flying?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@jamver @AusCERT Also, with the code on the t-shirt, what if logo is true? real is then undefined. IMPLEMENTATION DEPENDENCY BUG BUG BUG.

via TweetDeck in reply to jamver

@jamver @AusCERT So did I ever tell you that I used to use Perl lot?

via TweetDeck in reply to jamver

@jamver @AusCERT Sure. But as I mentioned the other day, that code is terribly inefficient.

real = !logo;

There. Better.

I have no life.

via TweetDeck in reply to jamver

Doing some sound checks, to make sure the passing buses don’t cause any problems.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@irisherself Well, we’re recording next Saturday 4 June, so it should be good.

via TweetDeck in reply to irisherself

Yes, @irisherself, my next choices would be either the Allawah allawahhotel.com.au or the Royal Hotel Carlton royalhotelcarlton.com.au.

@JonoH The exact content will depend on which panellists I line up, but we’ll be half-way through the election campaign, so there’s that.

@JonoH I’ll check the beer situation momentarily, but from memory the taps are pretty basic. Stand by.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

@martin_english Oh who knows. I’ll pop down there later and see what the story is.

via TweetDeck in reply to martin_english

Yeah, this area at The Ritz would be most suitable. The bar staff will let the manager know I’m out here. pic.twitter.com/qsYbfC45wE

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Also, the food at The Ritz is quite good. And trains to Hurstville are quick and frequent when the station isn’t on fire.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

The Ritz Hurstville is actually a possibility, because the outdoor area on the right has power outlets. pic.twitter.com/m9hnQAWANG

@oberonsghost Yesh, while searching for photos earlier I found plenty of CCTV frame grabs and photos of murder victims.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to oberonsghost

Mind you, the locals are still meandering into the building. Let the fuckers burn, if you ask me.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Look, before anyone has a go at me, yes, there’s an evacuation alert at Hurstville station right now.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@KompleatKnut I don’t have the budget to hire the gear, or the time to organise permissions and rig it.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to KompleatKnut

Yeah, the Meridian is definitely scratched. I can’t get a clear power run into the only suitable area.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

The Royal Hotel Carlton looks promising. royalhotelcarlton.com.au I’ll check it out this afternoon too.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to oberonsghost

@oberonsghost So it seems. I’m having a quick lunch at the Meridian, but I’m not sure that the vibe is right for the podcast.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to oberonsghost

My phone wanted to auto-correct “cleansing” to “cleanskin”, which is fair enough.

@jplonie @StanDevia Yes. Set everything on fire. The cleansing fire.

@iain_chalmers I also have a fixed-price annual “I’ll be the person who reads and acts.” I should market that properly.

During the week I’ll also to a speed to see if there’s reliable enough bandwidth to stream it live.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The recording will happen next Saturday afternoon 4 June, just after lunchtime, as with previous pub-related episodes.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Once I’ve confirmed the venue, I’ll start contacting potential panellists for “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 3”.
