@MikePresland It’s local shit. This is local shit for local people.

Something really fuckin’ weird just happened and I’m really not sure about it.

@SnarkyPlatypus So do you want to enable change, or vent your personal and utterly valid frustration? They’re different goals.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus If you’re going to hit people with that stick as your first move, then you will lose.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Yeah I agree, but maybe you need to ramp that shit down so you can ramp up their education in easier stages.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Yeah but if you want to ramp up sociolinguistics with a guy in hi-viz then you’ve already lost.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I guess I spend more time with folks who aren’t as equipped to discuss these issues.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Agreed, but this guy was. His language sounded racist up front, but really wasn’t.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus In regard to seeing a man about a dog for five minutes at 2130 on a Tuesday night.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Sure, but you need to meet people halfway rather than writing them off. Most people are happy to learn.

So, I’ve got the last bottle of La Fée NV for $50, and whatever was left in the other bottle of absinthe for $3. Winning.

via TweetDeck

If you actually STFU and listen to what people are saying, they can actually articulate their concerns and what they’re cool with.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

It reminded me that most of the “inner urban elite” gripes about “racist bogans” is actually down to sociolinguistics..

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

He and I came to it from different directions, but we agreed that this is a fraught space (my words, obviously) which makes it difficult.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The thing that triggered me was simply that the drinker’s vocabulary was that of the suburban racist, but his point was the valid one.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Actually, that turned into a nuanced conversation about the difference between noting facts and broad generalisations.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

This sounds a bit racist, says the guy. “Yeah you get into trouble saying anything these days,” says the barman. Here we go.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Meanwhile someone in this front bar just referred to Brazilians as “chocolate people”, so I don’t think this will turn out well.

via TweetDeck

OK, so there’s actually only one full bottle of absinthe left, so fuck you it’s mine.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

So unless you commit to this absinthe deal in the next few minutes I’ll blow it off. So to speak.

@4_martinis This is also what I’m thinking. Hmmm. Unless someone confirms a purchase soon I may just skip it.

@SnarkyPlatypus @ApostrophePong Yeah massive alcohol volume plus wormwood can be… dangerous.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Taco_Lad @paulwallbank @piecritic This does not sound logistically efficient. The freight would be $20-ish and it’d be that price locally.

via TweetDeck in reply to Taco_Lad

Can someone please look up the wormwood content of the La Fée NV versus the La Fée Bohemian absinthe? This is important.

@paulwallbank Well Wattle Cottage, my favourite, is still available. bunjareecottages.com.au/calendar/ But I’m in Sydney Fri-Sun.

Anyway, La Fée Absinthe Vert NV is currently $70 at @danmurphys and I’ve got a few bottles at $50, so place your bids you idiots.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

People talk about serving 70% alcohol plus wormwood as if it’s a bad thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Because if you serve 70% alcohol absinthe in a bar then nothing could possibly go wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

To be clear, the Vert NV is “only” 38% alcohol for the bar market, not the 70% of the La Fée Bohemian Absinthe.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@joshgnosis I really can’t imagine what that might be the case.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshgnosis

Anyone in Sydney want a bottle of La Fée Absinthe Vert NV for $50? The Grand View has their last couple of bottles they’re wanting to move.

Awesome. The front bar has turned into regular locals shouting to each other about what’s on TV. We’re good to go.

I’m sure there’s Labor voters who similarly blame the Coalition for various complex global fuck-ups. I just don’t have an anecdote to tell.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

The 1970s recession was global, and there was the oil price shock, the end of the 1960s boom. But no, Labor.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I know a shopkeeper who’d never vote Labor because “they destroyed the economy”, at the same time saying she doesn’t follow the news.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

To be clear that’s non-partisan. Too many people still imagine Labor is best for “the workers”. The reality is both are shit at both.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

What’s depressing is that so many voters still believe that the Coalition is best at the economy simply because they keep repeating it.
