Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@nathanrodger @cailyoung @alisterrobbie We got one - Al will have to remind me of the brand - but it's not great. Will be upgrading soon.@RossFloate Yeah, it's cartoon-villain stuff.Shit, if I'd waited a few more months to retire I could have got a sweet redundancy package. #ABCcuts
Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@thirstyinmelb Yep.It's no accident that this government is choosing to cripple journalism and science. They want a dumb population that is easily exploited.Not just ABC-ers losing jobs. CSIRO cuts hitting researchers/scientists particularly hard http://t.co/nSe6hAr8O8 http://t.co/o4tmoOL2sd
Retweeted by Rob Ruminski"...and no cuts to the ABC or SBS." http://t.co/mXiETPpBV9 #abccuts #auspolSo, we're agreed Walton Goggins is the genetic spawn of Bruce Dern and Warren Oates, yeah? http://t.co/waVVsA7OgB

Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@NakedNed @LeMandapantz @ragibson Would absolutely have a go if I had the tools.@LeMandapantz @ragibson Actually, more than double. Amazon is selling it for $300 USD, BBQs Galore for $700 AUD.@ThatDonLewis Your sister is obviously a horrible human being.Probably not great thing to post directly after 400 job losses due to ABC cuts. http://t.co/8EOt3lJYph
Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@ragibson Very, very tempted, even if the bloody thing is twice the price of the same unit in the US.You know that Abbott, Hockey, Turnbull & co. won't stop here. They'll cut and cut until the ABC is crippled, then give the scraps to Rupert.Somebody slap me in the face and tell me that buying a second smoker would be a ridiculous indulgence. https://t.co/NNnZtQyBNEWe know nothing.. @TheCraftyPint: SNEAK PEEK: A brown envelope containing a VHS tape was left at Crafty Towers today. http://t.co/h851ZOWMd0
Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@SkinnerHackett Just sorted it out, but I need to come in anyway -- it has been FAR too long!Turkey sorted! Thanks all!@cupofthrills Brenta is sorting us out! Cheers.@snarkattack Gah! I should've just asked @essjayeff first!@BigBoyBarbeque Looks good, but that won't help me cook a Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday.You aren't finding efficiencies, or streamlining anything, you're terminating people's employment and livelihoods.
Retweeted by Rob RuminskiPeople who use "structural change", or "workforce reduction" instead of "firing people" are fucking cowards who should grow some apricots.
Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@cupofthrills @erinmargrethe How can I give this more than one favourite?Conservative insta-experts on how to run a complex media organisation are worse than the geniuses who call into sports talkback shows.I need to buy a turkey this week, Twitter. Butcher recommendations? My normal guy doesn't do poultry.Just unbelievable: US police shoot dead 12-year-old boy holding fake gun at a playground http://t.co/XZhT568YuX

Sounds like a pain in the ass.@reubenacciano You moving?@reubenacciano @theprovenance Although I do wonder if making staff listen to Sister Ray counts as sexual harassment?@theprovenance Sister Ray on repeat for the whole goddamn drive.@indefensible And with a hangover, no less. Nobody better cross me today.It was like living in Wellington all over again. #ttrtptThe cafe where I had breakfast this morning had three fucking Bob Marley tracks on repeat for over an hour.

Elliott Smith: "Waterloo Sunset" (w/ Jon Brion) https://t.co/nDHQWhi2UNElliott Smith: "Thirteen" https://t.co/Cf85mhQJt1Elliott Smith: "Walk Away Renee" http://t.co/fZZ64lZhQK@reubenacciano Yep. And now I'm doing the Elliott covers.@reubenacciano Interesting through-line: all three songs were covered by Elliott Smith.@reubenacciano It's an interesting game, now that I think about it. Three songs in a row on a theme. I love the story that those three tell.@reubenacciano I'm doing it now. I might need more tequila.@reubenacciano Experiment: play "Walk Away Renee," "Thirteen," and "Waterloo Sunset" back-to-back as an ethnography of teenage love.@reubenacciano See, that's the interesting thing. Is it a song about first love, or second love?@reubenacciano Absolutely. That feeling you're always trying to recapture, whether or not it's good for you.The beautiful, timeless thing about "Thirteen" by Big Star: it is equal parts melancholy and defiance.Sometimes I wish that I wore my scars on my face, like a washed-up boxer."One needs solitude, solitude, solitude. Being alone within 4 walls is immortality upon the earth." - Charles Bukowski

Retweeted by Rob RuminskiI love how Jean-Marc Vallee talks about music in relation to film and finding characters/emotion: http://t.co/XsxqAshhAk@janiceleung how many times did you punch him?Someone just floated a loose theory on Lana Del Rey as our GG Allin and I feel like everything finally makes sense.

So guilt, basically.@AleOfATime I am in tact.@MarynkaVerte it was close.Public Service Announcement: I am back north of the river.Public Service Announcement: I'm crossing the river.Suspending the guy who brought facts and data to an argument is an excellent summation of 21st-century ESPN.
