On Election Night, because Crikey is a non-stop news behemoth, we launched our 24-hour liveblog news channel from Crikey’s virtual election simulation bunker control room space station which is equipped with the latest web3 holographic election analysising equipment machines. It was very good. Clearly the high water mark for election coverage as both Samintha Maiden and Gerry O’Brien later noted on their twitterblogs.
My role, as always, was to be hilarious and adorable. And even if I say so myself, I didn’t fuck it up too badly. Alright I did, the whole thing was a drunken shambles, but it was everyone else’s fault. As you will see below:
And then we got a cab to the Convention Centre where Julia was speaking to the party faithful and journalists who got there on time to get in which wasn’t us. We stood outside and along with the security guards watched it on my ipad. (Thanks ABC24!). Then we went to the Greens party and ran into Elfy the Elf who sent us to the Imperial Hotel where the real party was and then Elfy took off and Leigh lost his phone and got ALP beer on himself. So we did our bit for Democracy and I don’t think I paid for a single drink all night so I suspect it is my shout. And we all awoke in the morning to a state of exhilarating uncertainty. The End.
