Does anyone remember "Shaddup You Face"? An Australian one i think: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaddap_You_Face Life Begins At 40 - another great novelty song from NZ: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hogsnort_Rupert

Fade to Grey - Visage. an engimatic quality to this one, i remember it vividly, playing at the roller skating rink as a kid (showing my age) I s'pose someone's mentioned Kids in America? What about Oh Mickey - Toni Basil! still a catchy tune. good call on Safety Dance
Are you meaning under NZ$300 per week? For two of you? Anywhere near to town will be a shoebox for that price. You could flat with other people though for that price range.

The original Thomas Crown Affair
yeah good movie
saw it in the weekend and enjoyed it. quite low key overall, so a refreshing change. the opening scene is chilling if you've ever had a public speaking "moment" - get's you hooked for the whole movie. a shame they glossed over the Chamberlain episode, in some ways that would have added to the arc of the story. i liked the juxtaposition of Logue's failed acting daliances reciting king's speaches from Shakespeare with his true-life job of helping a real King with...
