@thegrugq_ebooks @BrianHonan I have no “why” either. Not on a Friday, anyway.

via TweetDeck in reply to thegrugq_ebooks

@thegrugq_ebooks @BrianHonan Quite probably, but they should be paying for it.

@ClintonDucas @hughstephens The flavours in your /2 are definitely there. I’ll have to listen again to get that phonetic subtlety.

via TweetDeck in reply to ClintonDucas

That’s enough about politics and media for me tonight. The quality of conversation tends to degrade fast on Friday nights.

@Daedalum @MickKime @DellKi2 @RitaPanahi Heh. Dob’t start down that path either.

via TweetDeck in reply to Daedalum

@MickKime @DellKi2 @RitaPanahi I don’t find “the Murdoch press” (is it that uniform?) so much sinister as deeply disappointing.

via TweetDeck in reply to MickKime

@MickKime @DellKi2 @RitaPanahi I wouldn’t go that far, but it’s certainly a political force in its own right. It’s not neutral.

via TweetDeck in reply to MickKime

@MickKime @DellKi2 @RitaPanahi That’s a bit cruel. At least the “paid propagandists” (your words) can assemble actual paragraphs.

via TweetDeck in reply to MickKime

@misskylie77 @ShappiKhorsandi @RitaPanahi Well that’s it. I look to columnists of all stripes to help me understand, not bleat fixed views.

via TweetDeck in reply to misskylie77

@DellKi2 @MickKime @RitaPanahi Well there’s a question, and I wasn’t aiming at you. I just know the world is multidimensional now.

via TweetDeck in reply to DellKi2

@DellKi2 @MickKime @RitaPanahi I get SO sick of dullard “the right” / “the left” BS. If that’s all people can do they’re a waste of oxygen.

@ShappiKhorsandi @misskylie77 @RitaPanahi You might well think that. I couldn’t possibly comment.

via TweetDeck in reply to ShappiKhorsandi

@ShappiKhorsandi @misskylie77 @RitaPanahi Well of course it doesn’t. It just tells me this is no place to look for a deeper understanding.

@misskylie77 @RachaelHasIdeas Every single such woman I’ve met has stroked me lingeringly on the forearm. The Edwardian Era lives on.

@misskylie77 To be honest, who the fuck cares what the wind-up junior trolls say? They have such a tiny repertoire.

@juhasaarinen Oh I see people still reading the fish wrap. They are either very old, or very poor.

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

Still, at least I know I am a nobody and have nothing of value to add. I’m not puffing myself up ‘cos I get to smear ink on fish wrapper.

@hughstephens Oh it’s definitely Australian. But it’s relatively new. There’s a linguistics essay in this one.

via TweetDeck in reply to hughstephens

@hughstephens I dunno about “strange”, but I’m hearing “young AU urban educated” in there. He sounds very familiar, actually.

via TweetDeck in reply to hughstephens

@misskylie77 @michaelneale Yeah you’re on the wrong track there.

@expectproblems I was just thinking it’d be an early-1990s band too. Like Veruca Salt. youtube.com/watch?v=jC9AUR…

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems The phrase “oestrogen hyper storm” conjures up some odd images, I must say. Though it’d be a damn fine band name.

@jonoabroad And yes, @carolduncan did a delightful job. It made a nice sensible contrast to the lunacy within.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad @carolduncan I haven’t heard “tros” used, but “links” is a common generic term.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad Thank you. I didn’t really drink that much because it took effort to unravel the grammar.
