I’m intrigued to hear how my name will be pronounced over the PA.

@JustJimWillDo This is true. It’s all quite relaxed, with only the usual fluid nature of the region’s bureaucracy.

@NicholasFryer Oh there will certainly be photos. Just not while sitting near a no-photos sign and men with guns.

@zzap This was organised by the conference team in Vietnam, and it all looked very legit indeed.

If anyone from is looking for me, I’m waiting patiently for my visa to be processed.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I can’t take a photo, but let’s say that things are less formal than they might be. More formal than Dar es Salaam though.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I have handed my passport and a letter which alleges that my visa has been pre-approved to people behind a counter.

It was rather gorgeous in that holding pattern just before Ho Chi Minh City. pic.twitter.com/WNK9WFimwh

Transmitters off. See you in Ho Chi Minh City.

Oh. Departure in 33 minutes. I should probably head towards my aircraft rather that drinking gin.

Films don’t have reels any more, do they. They don’t even have film. Hollywood is a lie.

@mrowe I did linguistics, and can still hold my own with professional linguists, and I can say with confidence they’re arsehats.

@expectproblems I’ve noticed we tended to have similar opinions in these matters.

Honestly, by the time this image appears you’re hoping that it’s a remake of “The Ring” and everyone is slaughtered..twitter.com/i/web/status/8…QS

I guess you get that if you stick a cute chick up front and drop the words “Sapir–Whorf hypothesis” as if you know what they mean.

It baffles me how such an average film received so much praise. So fucking tedious. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrival_(…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I watched “Arrival” on the plane, too, which was 116 minutes of something that would’ve made an average 30-minute TV drama. Don’t bother.

As usual, Mr Cave and Mr Ellis have produced some beautifully cheerful lyrics. 6/6 pic.twitter.com/HoKm72xxiI

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

One thing kept me watching: The theme music (and the rest) is by Mr Nick Cave & Mr Warren Ellis. youtube.com/watch?v=qCUsIV… Listen, mortals! 5/

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Also, some good contemporary interviews, though the whole thing was essentially a 6-hour infomercial for SpaceX. 4/

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Still, the engineering stuff was moderately interesting, and there was plenty of archival Space Age footage. Good historical explainer. 3/

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The acting was dreadful. Wooden expressions and everyone talking in a low voice with no intonation, no passion. 2/

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

So, I watched the series “Mars” on the plane. I wouldn’t let that lot take charge of a paddle boat. No focus, no discipline. 1/

Somewhere in this shopping mall is an airport.

Transmitters off. See you in Singapore, briefly.

Weather OK over central Australia, we’re told it’ll be lumpy over Indonesia. pic.twitter.com/2Lziql8S8j

@jeamland l think they slip them into the drinks.

Actually, as Amos Yee taught us, in Singlish the only tone is Complain.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

You can tell this aircraft is going to Singapore. We haven’t even left the ground and already people are complaining loudly in Singlish.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

In the gate corral there’s a video playing and it’s about Singapore and the presenter is Pete Evans and I’m glad I’m leaving very soon.
