  • .@josiefraser fascinating, but raises a lot of questions and concerns about what an Anon or anon police force actually means… #
  • .@josiefraser Power without accountability not good. Course Anon only equipped to handle virtual world, where they just tipped their hand. #
  • Great ep so far, except for the ambo chopper that keeps looking fake as hell. http://t.co/61ECQeBY @GetGlue @CSI_CBS #
  • This first episode puts a lot of effort into the horror tropes. Hard to tell at this point whether it's just heavy-h… http://t.co/nwnxJRN1 #
  • Yay! First ep of new season… We're in prison and back in the saddle. Also, Odette Anabel is GORGEOUS. http://t.co/eqxXygCN @GetGlue #
  • @bloggerheads You know you had to sound out what a handicapped person would sound like to work that one out, right? #
  • @JonMOMB Well, I don't think they mean it to be a comedy, so you might have. #
  • @warrenellis Takes a little more work, but we've arrived at Amazon for media files, WordPress with plugin for blog… #
  • @warrenellis For what you get, lack of portability & slightly unreliable tracking, libsyn was pretty expensive. #
  • @tetrarchangel Maybe… First ep was certainly fun. I'm in trouble if Odette and Olivia are ever on screen together, mind. #
  • For 38 years, I've mistakenly believed that the uvula was actually the tonsils. Fucking idiot. #
  • …also, that means having your tonsils removed actually means sustained slicing of flesh. Which is horrifying, thinking about it. #
  • @bloggerheads Hah, oh alright then. #
  • @kmellon That's cos it's a PERSON-eating fish movie… #

  • @peteholmez How'd they like THEM apples? @AFMJen #
  • @TracyAnnO It's just gone 9, so can't really sh… Oh, ok, right – Kissed my wife good morning, fed & hugged my dogs, basked in Autumn sun. #
  • @TracyAnnO (Those aren't really my top 3 things but I suspect you don't need to hear the real list.) #
  • @bevismusson Always thought exactly these things about Ross. Whenever you see his stuff pre-finish, it hits you hard. #
  • @bevismusson (Always felt same way about Glenn Fabry, actually.) #
  • @steevbishop I feel that brother. #
  • Asking complicated questions, but refuse to sit down or stop pacing behind them because you "have a meeting to get to"? GO TO YOUR MEETING. #
  • Now because YOU were tense & defensive, you've made someone who was settling into a nice Friday tense & defensive too. #
  • @EastleighPolice TRIPLE bike puncture? The… bike has three wheels? #
  • After some hard-thinking last night, we're going to faze out the word "Idiot" on #MOMBcast It's a lazy affectation that we stole anyway… #
  • I'm announcing it here without discussing it with my fellow Monkeys, but I think they'll understand that historically it's too compromised. #
  • @chris_doherty ((BTW did you see this: #TheWalkingDead brilliantly skewered here: http://t.co/IDrWITZe (spoilers for S2) ) #
  • Balls. Not following Gervais means I ended up pretty much repeating something he kind of said last night. Thought process started earlier. #
  • .@belledejour_uk Don't get me wrong, I think it's a bit much to put it on the covers, but agree entirely with that sentiment. #
  • @chris_doherty That bit was a bit overcooked, wasn't it? TBH, me too… Gloves & Rock things did raise an eyebrow, mind. #
  • @DJDarren No. Well, if you can, it'd be wrong to do so. Those articles aren't for the likes of you or I. #
  • @DJDarren Yes. #
  • …BTW that earlier tweet – I don't have a problem landing in same place as Gervais, just a bit sad that I didn't get to say it first. #
  • Well respected colleague habitually sends links to videos a bit like this: http://t.co/sdM5X6b1 – AND YET I CAN'T GET A FUCKING BREAK. Sigh. #
  • @DJDarren Can pretty much tell what it says: it will be measured & funny, edgy in a safe way, & ultimately come down on side of disapproval. #
  • @DJDarren …& may even say "I like a dodgy joke as much as the next guy, but am comfortable defining where the line is for others." #
  • @catherinebray Oh my goodness. I loved You Me Everyone etc. #
  • @davidwynne Heh. I did find it oddly hypnotic, though. #
  • @DJDarren At the Moran thing, or the video? #
  • @DJDarren Oh, FINE. #
  • @catherinebray Surprised me that wife really loved it. She's not daft, but she isn't that patient, & as we watched I thought she'd bristle. #
  • @catherinebray Have to look out for The Future… I expect it to be very thoughtful & funny, but admit I could just watch July for hours. #
  • @catherinebray (Also have to look out for "the future", because it is terrifying.) #
  • @DJDarren YAY! #
  • @davidwynne I can live with that. More worried about what it means for sheep representation than anything else. #
  • @davidwynne OH HA HA. #
  • @davidwynne That's… just the same joke again. #
  • @davidwynne Aren't ewe though. #
  • Never do this, but I've had cause to look back at a tweet I sent earlier & it doesn't read at ALL how I thought it did, so I'm deleting it. #
  • (Intended it as jab at my situation, but it read as jab at someone else's, & I didn't want that. Knew they would read it, wasn't sneaky…) #
  • (…just came across as mean & I didn't intend to hurt their feelings. Also, it was whiny, not funny.) #
  • @hattiehattie DAMMIT. #
  • @hattiehattie I knew you'd say that. @adeteal (Seriously, @Sulman, we should get tee-shirts made.) #
  • @sispurrier I would, yes. #
  • @tetrarchangel Hah, you liked that, yeah? #
  • @tetrarchangel (Actually, not sure I know what you mean!) #
  • @tetrarchangel AhA! I see. God, that's the beginning of the show. I've always forgotten what I said by the end. Does SOUND like me, though. #
  • This is how you really use words to really hurt someone: http://t.co/bQOH5udc Fucking dreadful situation. Hope #talktoteens is alright. #
  • …wanted to add the hashtag #neverends to that last RT, btw. Ridiculous state of affairs. May be time to admit you just. don't. like him. #
  • http://t.co/NfUH86bm – OH HUR DUR GERVAIS APOLOGIES FOR MONG, USES IDIOTS HUR! What a vagina. #
  • @iamjamesward It's a reasonable question. Any other day of the week/subject, people would be questioning the press's faux-outrage. #
  • @BroomhillPhoto You don't HAVE to beware of these – probably fictional – bike cops if you've done nothing wrong. 😉 @EastleighPolice #
  • Admit it: What you REALLY want to do is have reduced Gervais to tears. Which you can then say are insincere. Which they would be. #
  • @indiaknight Saw that. It's horrible. "Won't SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?" really is toxic bullshit, isn't it? #
  • Funny that the Cookdandbombd guy has been getting in on the act – I've been thinking of Morris & Iannucci quite a lot these last few days. #
  • @ChrisBrosnahan I think IF @rickygervais owes ANYONE an apology, it's the potential targets of discrimination… @mrsnickyclark #
  • @ChrisBrosnahan …The vast majority of the "haters" that I saw evidence of have no skin in the game beyond outrage. Who owes them what..? #
  • @ChrisBrosnahan …Or is this one of those "post terrorist attack" moments, where we are all in it together? "Today, we are ALL victims"? #
  • @ChrisBrosnahan Sorry, may have missed context. Did he say he wouldn't wish the discrimination on anyone, or the fallout of disagreeing? #
  • @tetrarchangel First thing that happens after you say you'll have to try to engage me, I say something totally, accidentally, dismissive. #
  • @ChrisBrosnahan Well, then, he's a fucking idiot. Apologising to those people is just a rabbit-hole of redundancy. #
  • @tetrarchangel whenever there's one of those cuts, what I've literally done is slid you in… #
  • @tetrarchangel …so what you're hearing is a direct continuation of what we were saying before. #

  • @emslj They do look pretty lovely. Suggested them to the wife, she reminded me that the puppy would destroy them in minutes! #
  • @hermanos God, I so totally want to contribute some spoof examples to this, but head too full of possibilities. #
  • Possible research project: How many minutes of audio published last year were bits that podcasters stated would be "edited out" in show? #
  • We record this week's #MOMBcast tonight, & as always will gratefully receive audio of YOU, talking for 2-5 minutes about COMICS. RT? #
  • @TinyMaster Say WHAAAT? Mind you, it might be interesting to see an American city destroyed like that. Never seen that in a film before.;) #
  • @keozen YES DO THAT. #
  • Video: Chronicle trailer. Looks REALLY good. Out February in US, March in UK. http://t.co/6dZFZtwF #
  • mombcast: http://t.co/NZsb84jZ #
  • @RealSharHorgan God I love you. #
  • @jamiesmart Well, I thought it was funny, but what do I know? #
  • @jamiesmart I mean, it's not very respectful of paedophiles, or the victims of paedophiles. But I think those things cancel each other out. #
  • @tetrarchangel You misunderstand. I mean bits where the podcaster SAYS "we'll edit that out" but it stays in. #
  • There are a couple of cool, quick online tools I've used to thin out spam accounts from my followers. Anyone know what they might be? #
  • @davidwynne Of course. Also the right to point out when someone has gone from pointing it out to saying they shouldn't be allowed to say it. #
  • @davidwynne Characterising every counterpoint as characterising every dissenter as a censor is reductive, evasive & censorious in itself. 😉 #
  • @lucypepper Hah, no, I can't remember! #
  • @davidwynne Yeah, I SENT a few tweets to Herring, with deeper critique & clarifying questions, & he didn't respond OR RT… #
  • @davidwynne …then I sent him couple suggesting that by only engaging with dumbest responses he was exploiting & manipulating argument… #
  • @davidwynne …& I didn't get a response to that, either. #
  • @Sulman Exactly what I was trying to get at. I have a problem with people taking the moral high-ground when they don't have it. @davidwynne #
  • @davidwynne Hah, well, actually preferred Herring before. But popularity changes people in a way that isn't always pleasant. @Sulman #
  • @davidwynne You'll have seen me say that my biggest issue with RG is that he's tried to defend himself, when he didn't have to. @Sulman #
  • @davidwynne Jimmy Carr never annoyed me more than when he let himself be pressured into apologising for that Special Olympics joke. @Sulman #
  • @davidwynne Don't think so. We're opinionated, but moral high-ground is summat else altogether. I don't feel qualified to take it. @sulman #
  • @davidwynne Although I guess saying "taking the moral high-ground is annoying" is kind of taking a moral high ground. THIS IS HARD. @sulman #
  • @davidwynne (…like when a girl told me that not having a pulling technique was my pulling technique! MIND BLOWN!) @sulman #
  • HEY YOU GUYS! If you take the "e" out of "Korean", it spells "Koran"! This can't be a coincidence!! #
  • @Sulman (True, true. Once again, I follow Herring but not Gervais by choice, so only really get chance to get annoyed by him.) @davidwynne #
  • @davidwynne Yeah, you're right! You should really work on that. @sulman #
  • @davidwynne Exactly. I think he's got a working defense if he says "It's offensive, but I think we should care a bit less about that."… #
  • @davidwynne …But pleading ignorance compromises the man who once brilliantly observed this stuff in The Office. #
  • @davidwynne (The thing about fame might work with others, but Herring & Gervais don't fit that model in my book.) @Sulman #
  • @MhairiMcF @Sulman & I were talking about Hicks yesterday, actually. You know who never apologised for offensive language? HIM. #
  • Video: This video is just wonderful. Oh, probably not safe for work. “Fantasy” by DYE Video by Jeremie… http://t.co/kSe8NeEk #
  • @Sulman Wait, what? Where? How do you SEE all these people? #
  • @steevbishop I don't think @JaneMOMB is stuck-up at all! Oh, wait, what? #
  • @budgie (asked that exact same question myself.) #
  • Fuck me it's cold in here. #
  • @davidwynne Yes. You're absolutely right. @JaneMOMB is always the picture of serenity & grace. @JamesMOMB #
  • @budgie There wasn't one! Yesterday people were pretty much happy with picking a side & muck-raking in. #
  • @budgie @davidwynne Been comfortable with idea that Brent might not be entirely created persona since, well, Brent… #
  • @budgie @davidwynne …as such, I've loved his scripted/directed stuff, but never been able to enjoy his stand-up. Amy can't handle him. #
  • @budgie RE this latest thing, I wouldn't do it, but I don't have a problem with it. #
  • @budgie I have responsibility for how I behave. I don't have any for how other people do. That isn't WHOLE story, but covers the disconnect. #
  • @budgie I wouldn't do it because I think it's a bit childish, & also it's not a word I've ever used. #
  • @budgie But it isn't my job to police how other people talk. Take issue with direct abusive language but don't think this is black & white. #
  • @budgie I grew up being VERY concerned with the language people used, but I just don't feel that strongly about it any more. #
  • @davidwynne Whupass suggests it's provoked somehow. It isn't. She's mean. @janemomb @jamesmomb #
  • @JamesMOMB Let it all out, dude. Let it all out. @davidwynne @janemomb #
  • @thatswedishgirl You patronage is FAR more important to me than any debate about things I have no control over. I apologise! @budgie #
  • @McKelvie What constitutes "obsessive"? (Nice accolade, btw!) #
  • @indiaknight My personal opinion, that isn't PC, it's people not being cunts. Branding it as a named behaviour set cheapens it to me… #
  • @indiaknight I HAVE to believe that more people are less obnoxious because they realised it was obnoxious, not because of social pressure… #
  • @indiaknight …if people only not grabbing tits while racially slurring cos they're worried about what people think, what does that say? #
  • @SorenLorensen (Hope "chatting til stupid-o-clock in the morning with funny little stranger man" was one of the GOOD memories!) #
  • @Herring1967 Politeness & courtesy direct behaviours & PC (which I think is most popular urban myth ever) more about not saying wrong thing? #
  • @Herring1967 If anything, if it really existed except in the most fevered minds of the righteous left & right, wouldn't PC be about Respect? #
  • @indiaknight It's one I feel quite strongly about. I see why people get emotional about words but think we all overstate their importance… #
  • @indiaknight …when from personal experience we know that the direct intent behind a person's actions or words really have far more impact. #
  • @stace_w RAWK! #
  • @sispurrier Are… you concerned that you may have some non-Aryan blood from some past ancestor, & hope to use Nazi skillz to eradicate it? #
  • @sispurrier (To clarify: That wasn't helpful, right? I need to work out some sort of system for identifying this stuff.) #
  • @NomNomGnom I… huzzah! Well… done? I shouldn't be so flabbergasted, it's not like you're talking brain surgery! #
  • @NomNomGnom (Just for clarity, you're not ACTUALLY talking brain surgery, are you?) #
  • If crass words like "Mong" etc being out of use has a positive effect on society, how come last few days have unearthed so many toerags? #
  • …Is it possible that actually it's behaviours & education we need to be looking at & the whole language thing is just an easy distraction? #
  • @kenkills yes, it's exactly like that. #
  • @finch_linden It isn't but it should be. #
  • @thatswedishgirl OH MY GOD ZOMBIELAND. I need to watch that again. #
  • @SourGrapes AHA! Good response! Textbook! #
  • @davidwynne I haven't seen anyone doing that… are people doing that? Glad I haven't seen anyone doing that. I'll leave it to you, I think. #
  • @SorenLorensen Phew. Two occasions that I will always fondly remember. Late-late nighters fewer & further between as age sets in. #
  • @davidwynne Grr, yeah. Mind, if retailers want to drink that kool aid, good luck to them… They won't be getting any of the law suit money. #
  • @jamiesmart How did they defend it? #
  • Hah… The edit between @tetrarchangel's contribution and the rest of the show has accidentally become comedy gold. #MOMBcast #
  • @jamiesmart Sounds about right. #
  • @tetrarchangel Oh, it was a complete accident. I love it. It probably isn't that funny. #MOMBcast #
  • @davidwynne It was released in the middle of a month of 52 other #1s from the same company, but wasn't one of the heavy-hitters? #
  • @emslj Hah. Epic Win. #
  • @davidwynne Hm, well… I mean, Animal Man got a lot of love, & was a left-field book, so I dunno. Agree that snark is easier for people… #
  • @davidwynne Was going to say that people wouldn't have been as interested in seeing how BOP shook out but that disregards Oracle connection. #
  • @davidwynne …Just, for some reason, feels like PRE reboot, people were giving more of a shit about ex-Robins than they did Birds Of Prey. #
  • @davidwynne (Red Hood wasn't one of the shitty books I read. Not sure why I didn't get to Birds Of Prey.) #
  • @davidwynne Nuh-uh, but then I don't think DC IS a misogynist company, just misguided – Voodoo, bizarrely, pretty nicely handled, as an eg. #
  • @davidwynne Birds Of Prey NEVER really fit that misogynist model, did it? At same time, it never seemed particularly high on DCs priorities. #
  • @davidwynne The 1st 20-odd issues of BOP had that going on. They were REALLY good. I wouldn't rule out First Issue Fatigue… #
  • @davidwynne Cancelling Batwoman. The pacing is all out of whack for me for some reason. Pretty, but lacking direction, was how 1st 2 felt. #
  • @davidwynne (Which I'm gutted about, because I LOVE the character, & the work done on her last year & in #0 #
  • @davidwynne By priority, I mean about how prominent it is in their marketing etc. I think 2nd string titles will suffer most from this… #
  • @davidwynne Red Hood would have had more people intrigued because it was – kind of – an all new series, wasn't it? #
  • @davidwynne Too much not enough for me – like, the art IS nice, but I have so many beautiful JHW comics that are ALSO well-written… #
  • @davidwynne …Seeing CHASE again, & then finding absolutely no oomph to get behind my initial first-panel rush was saddening. #
  • @davidwynne Oh, for sure – you MUST remember how I feel about SWORD & Thor TMA – but looking for reasons why BOP isn't blowing up all over. #
  • @davidwynne Always said it: a comic can do a lot better with shitty writing & good art than it can with amazing writing & shitty art… #
  • @emslj They'll soon learn… 😉 @glinner #
  • @emslj (That SHOULD have read "THEY soon learn", not "They'll". Sorry!) @glinner #
  • @davidwynne (You can swap out "writing" for "storytelling", actually, & it still works.) #
  • @hattiehattie Dunnit tho? We're still a couple of weeks behind, but the first three are great. #
  • @mrtonylee The impression I got from the Bleeding Cool thing was that Disney are out of the loop on most of this stuff. Seems likely. #
  • @emslj S'inevarabrul. As surely as the wind follows the… huh. Actually, I got nothing. #
  • Cool post from @budgie. We don't entirely agree on areas of this subject, we discovered earlier, but I pretty much totally agree with this. #
  • @davidwynne Huh. How funny. My earlier comments went on the assumption – for some reason – that BOP was released week after Red Hood… #

2011-10-20 Digital Breadcrumbs

  • @Sulman @sarahditum That's… weird. Why do photos taken 10+ years ago ALWAYS look like the late 70s/early 80s? #
  • @lucypepper Think that as long as YOU know you aren't also saying "all mentally ill people are subhuman", doesn't matter what people think. #
  • @lucypepper Think about this stuff a lot myself & my response is probably entirely predictable, but words are powerful because we MAKE them. #
  • @lucypepper …& I admit, I can't be arsed with policing my own words for people who are more interested in syntax than intent. #
  • @sarahditum Hah, I didn't even notice decor. & course, photo stock is older, but it must be a personal thing to associate that with 70s… #
  • @davidwynne Hah, I'm not even remotely close enough geographically to fidget with @Sulman nocturnally any more. He hopes. #
  • @lucypepper You can't constantly be worrying about people who can't be arsed to make the effort. #
  • @lucypepper It isn't that easy a policy to remember, I warn you. Still very possible to get frustrated. But honestly, fuck 'em. #
  • @lucypepper The long list of extra little rules beyond "try not to fuck people over" we're supposed to follow make us dumber, not smarter. #
  • Where @Sulman & I used to work, there was a significant program for handicapped students. They called it the "inclusive learning" group. #
  • …Thank god those guys had us to protect them. "Handicapped" is FAR more condescending & insulting than "inclusive learning". #
  • @Sulman Don't do it! You know you can't resist the nerd juice. #
  • @MhairiMcF Interesting how much this stuff plays into confirmation bias. I'd be surprised if many people's minds are changed by this stuff. #
  • @MhairiMcF …Davies & Fry seem to get a pretty free pass from most, but through action & inaction, they ACTIVELY bullied someone… #
  • @MhairiMcF Prior to this, thought Gervais was neurotic cock who perhaps not coincidentally made some wonderfully authentic & nuanced comedy. #
  • @MhairiMcF …that hasn't changed. Don't get this binary approach to celebs – cos you like their stuff you have to defend them/vice versa… #
  • @MhairiMcF In 30 seconds of The Office Gervais said more about how people respond to the handicapped than anything said against him… #
  • @MhairiMcF …not saying he's remotely equipped to be a conscience for a whole society. But I suspect he'd argue the idea is ridiculous. #
  • @MhairiMcF Every single thing about every single Fry nontroversy has left a bad taste in my mouth. When arguments fail, his supporters… #
  • @MhairiMcF …fall back on "he's not well, leave him alone". He's a mouthpiece for nation when he's up, but needs protecting when he's down. #
  • @MhairiMcF One of my favourite aspects of any comedian's bit is: "You do know we're all fucking ridiculous, right?"… by that metric… #
  • @MhairiMcF …Gervais on sounder ground with me than Herring, whose stand-up I prefer. Best thing he could do is stop defending himself. #
  • @MhairiMcF He doesn't HAVE to answer to anyone, so he should keep his gob shut. #
  • @MhairiMcF Flipside to that is he's getting this insight into the tedious side of Twitter a lot earlier than most of us. Might just leave… #
  • @MhairiMcF …Which would be a result, huh? I mean, he's OBVIOUSLY not OUR sort of people. 😉 #
  • @MhairiMcF Twitter is like the regular FRIENDS: Anyone newcomer who doesn't fit our rigid standards won't last beyond the odd call-back. #
  • @MhairiMcF Oh, lady, you're OBVS a series regular. Gervais is Helen Baxendale. Which… makes me feel a bit weird in my tummy. #
  • @sarcastathon Wait, what? WAIT… You can set up filters? #
  • @MhairiMcF (Phew. I secretly suspected you were going to put ME in the Gunther role. ALWAYS the Gunther, never the Ross.) #
  • @sarcastathon Oh, wow. I need to get on this. #
  • @sarcastathon I… guess I kind of don't mind other people's chunter enough to filter them. #
  • @sarcastathon But whenever one of these nontroversies come along, I find people I like breaking my heart a bit, so maybe I should. #
  • @lucypepper I'm sorry, Lucy, but I don't think you can pin this one on Kat Von D like you do everything else. #
  • @lucypepper You should. You have to be aware that Kat Von D being blamed for everything might be a trigger for Kat Von D. #
  • The Uncharted games look nice & that Harrison Ford video is cute, but… they always look like a bunch of quick time events strung together. #
  • @lucypepper Oh boy. @Sulman #
  • @michaeltegos Cool beans. I guess those are the bits that maintain that cinematic feel most consistently, which is why they get shown. #
  • @MrMichaelSpicer @jamiesmart That's just lazy. Should totally've gone with something like "Orange dates Ginger" or "Orange Times Two" or… #
  • @MrMichaelSpicer @jamiesmart …Actually it isn't that easy, is it? #
  • @tetrarchangel I guess the phrase "patients" was making people feel like patients, & as such making their lives substantially worse? #
  • @tetrarchangel …Accuracy is always a bit on the nose, isn't it? #
  • @tetrarchangel My belief is euphemistic language only serves to obfuscate, not illuminate. #
  • @tetrarchangel & I'd expect people using those services have bigger problems than what the official terminology for them is. #
  • @rhodri OH JESUS. How come I never heard that phrase in the 80s? It's PERFECT. #
  • Personally a big fan of "Gaylord", as it always reminds me of "Doomlord" who was fucking awesome. #
  • Uncomfortable with "Bummer", as reinvigorated by Simon Pegg et al, because it's a bit too easy to blurt at my wife. #
  • @MhairiMcF No! Don't do it! Pretty soon you'll be judging other people's material for being too rude! #
  • @MhairiMcF I've clearly got a little bit of a willy up my bottom about this at the moment, haven't I? Sorry! #
  • One thing I genuinely do think is a tacky behaviour on here is when someone only engages with their most extreme/inarticulate detractors. #
  • @tetrarchangel Does it matter as much as target-led systems, industrialisation of care etc? #
  • @tetrarchangel I think tone of voice, inflection, & power dynamic will always make a much greater difference than the language used… #
  • @tetrarchangel …& I think normalising language makes more cultural difference than censorship-by-proxy. These are just things I think. #
  • @tetrarchangel (Though they are largely based on personal experience & anecdotal evidence.) #
  • Not touching Dale Farm. The little bit about it I've read suggests it's another one of those situations where EVERYONE pisses me off. #
  • Photo: Sunset: Wheat Fields Near Arles, 1888 by Vincent van Gogh & Serena Malyon http://t.co/Jb1cwiT9 #
  • @thatswedishgirl Why… would you be venting about olives? They're TASTY! #
  • @Herring1967 Nah, you're good. Pretty pointless exercise the first few times people did it. #
  • @thatswedishgirl LOL I got that! #
  • @Herring1967 The people you are choosing to RT don't have viable opinions of their own. It's cheap & irresponsible to engage with them. #
  • @emslj Hah, aww… no. I think in the righteous-indignation-tsunami sweeping through this place, you wouldn't even register… @Sulman #
  • @emslj @Sulman Actually, can I reframe that? Need to think of a non-triggery version of the word Tsunami. A lot of people don't like them. #
  • This whole anti/pro Gervais mong thing is culturally retarded. #
  • We should really have moved beyond this sort of thing by now. #
  • @Sulman OH GOD DO YOU MEAN ME? But… but we were talking about Bill Hicks at lunch and EVERYTHING! @emslj #
  • @Herring1967 Thatcher was being paid by the BBC for the show on which she said it. Not sure the two situations are comparable on that front. #
  • @Herring1967 You should get onto the Daily Mail, see if they'll include a link to your SCOPE sponsorship stuff with your quotes. #
  • @Herring1967 (Just read that he did a bit on his C4 show. Previously only knew about Tweets. Still, BBC & C4 are pretty different animals.) #
  • @milkexperiment IAN, RG said something stupid, people who already think RG is stupid got boring, the stupid people who love RG got stupid… #
  • @milkexperiment …& then in order they got defensive, stupid/smug/boring/obnoxious, and stupider/noisier/boringer. #
  • @milkexperiment Basically pedantic, semantic, smug, arrogant, boring, obnoxious, noisy, stupid people sucking off their confirmation biases. #
  • @bimadew Don't give @Sulman too much credit… The sorting hat put him in House Treadstone, so he's always been preoccupied. #
  • @emslj ME TOO! Different office, obvs. But I mean, I'm leaving too! Early for me, n'all. #
  • @emslj Yeah, no, fuck… I wouldn't stay THAT late. That's just insane! #
  • @simon_price01 You should follow the people I follow. People have talking about it quite a lot in mine. #
  • @simon_price01 But I think it's redundant to try and slam people for not being as emotional about something like that as you… #
  • @simon_price01 …if you have to bully people into giving a shit about something, they don't really give a shit about it, do they? #
  • @emslj Oh dear. That's… the saddest story ever. #
  • @TracyAnnO Aww… INSTANT RETWEET. #

  • @tetrarchangel Nothing to do with Gervais… That one's all "stuff I knew". It's also the name of a piece of image software. #
  • @tetrarchangel What can I tell you? Don't have slightest problem with you using it, because language isn't supposed to be a straightjacket. #
  • @milkexperiment Yup, exactly. #
  • @JamesMOMB I can only begin to imagine how you responded. #
  • @ruckawriter Oh boy, oh boy… novel or comic or something different? #
  • …Disturbed to find that I'm largely with the commenters in that last CiF piece. I mean, it isn't THAT rare an occurrence, I guess. #
  • @ruckawriter Oh man I am so excited right now. #
  • @emslj I don't know what a sla… never mind, I'll google it. #
  • @emslj OH MY GOD WHY DON'T WE HAVE THOSE? #
  • @rhodri Honestly,we thought you'd never ask. You had us at "in". #
  • Still loving this second season, but it is a bit Red Dwarfy in that every ep has a full-on gimmick in a way that mak… http://t.co/iigOmSOW #
