How much would you be willing to pay for a single number plate?

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

When I think about all the different things I could spend my money on, a car number plate does not appear at the top of my list. It’s one of those things I have because it’s required. I certainly would be forking out in excess of $1million (AUD) for the “right to display” a single [...]

Friday, May 4th, 2007

Is it just me, or is Blades of Glory one of the most highly anticipated films of the year? I saw a preview and nearly wet my pants. Will Ferrell is one of the greatest actors of our generation. Figure skating is funny enough, but when you combine it with the story of two guys [...]

One of the coolest games I’ve played on the Xbox lately is Hitman: Blood Money, the latest in the Agent 47 Hitman series.
