Listorama: Facebook status updates vol 40

BetaRish is...

is a culture of volume

“Finally meeting my Austerlitz!” “Benny, I’m not sure that works.”

Summer slips away again

is all pixels and notifications

Dance dance dance to the ad-supported streaming service

is all of the filter

Last day of this view

First day vibes

The breeze is waiting to emerge

is an armful

is a man of infinite desires

is a new wave synth pop macro economist

Time is water

Made it

is by another canal

Did St Swithin have anything to say about humidity?

is trying to get out from behind the cue ball

Burble bibble boom

is adrift on an ever-changing sea of schedules

is in the office on a Friday shocker

is off to charm school again

is of the view that 8am client meetings are wrong

Old soul, new shoes

Whither the bassoon?

Emily Hasler’s status updates through this morning’s innings are my favourite Ashes commentary of the summer so far

A = A, eh?

is an elegant choice of font

has an A-level in remembering

It might be time for a fine tune

is an impermanent fixture on the landscape

And then we begin as we end

…and time stretched out, knowing it wouldn’t fit in its uniform any more

Summer cold imminent

…and of course the sun comes out the day after a bank holiday…

Power is as power does

is not reigning anywhere

has a world-class talent for worrying

has it if you want it oh yeah check it out

is building a bunker

is as easy to dislodge as an Australian prime minister

is still not the whole hog

is professional ashes

Still has his Equinox cold

had a phrase, and now its gone

is going forward with his forward-looking plan to go to the Forward Prizes for Poetry this evening

is a proponent of Uncreative Facebook

was a candidate for something

Oh what? Oh, that.
