  1. Describe your age.
    I am 5 years older than I tell people and 15 years older than I act.

  2. Where were you five years ago?
    Living in Perth

  3. Where do you see yourself five years from now?
    Still here but financially secure (well we can dream can't we?)

  4. What's a good night's entertainment for you and your friends?
    A few drinks, pizzas and good company to watch a DVD that none of us have seen.

  5. What got you into DVD and how long ago?
    The convenience of discs and the promise of additional features. I purchased my DVD player in February 2000.

  6. What do you love about DVD?
    The sound and picture quality mostly but also when you buy a disc and there are tons of extras such as deleted scenes, making of's etc.

  7. Given the advances in DVD over the past few years, does the format still surprise you and why?
    Occassionally I am surprised by various things such as picture and sound quality on films you would expect to be really poor or that were made at a time when sound quality wasn't a priority.

  8. What title in your collection do you use to introduce friends and family to DVD and why?
    Usually the Matrix for the extras and seperation and maybe one of my music titles for sound and convenience of skipping (that's the disc not me)

  9. Outside of DVD, what keeps you entertained?
    I love sport, soccer, AFL, tennis. Music is a big thing for me (listening to, not playing), the beach, cinema and spending time with friends (hmmm it sounds like a personals ad) :)

  10. Have you ever met someone famous before and/or wish to meet someone famous?
    This is a rather big list and I do hate to brag :) People I would like to meet would be Paul Newman, Peter Gabriel and Alex Corretja.

  11. What is your current method of transport and what would you like to upgrade to?
    Ford Falcon 1989 S Pack. I would like a Saab Turbo Convertible but people may interprit that as some sort of crisis.

  12. What is your favorite recipe/meal/take-away?
    I like other people's cooking a great deal. Also fish and chips, chinese, pizza, most junk food really

  13. What is the only joke you seem to remember when people around you are telling jokes?
    Well I am incredibly witty and rely on this to create new ones as needed. But seriously, I usually fall back on

    Q:What's red and looks like a bucket? A: A red bucket.

  14. Can you juggle? Can you juggle knives? Can you still juggle?
    I can only juggle my social life, not very well either

  15. What are the most memorable nicknames you've had in your lifetime?
    Lots to list here, my most common was Herman as in Herman Munster because of my height not because of the bolts in my neck :)

  16. What was the first video game you fell in love with, on what machine? What is your favourite now?
    I loved the Mario Bros series and Zelda on the old Nintendo. Favourite current game would be FIFA 2001 on Playstation but I love any and all soccer and tennis games on Playstation.

  17. What are your favourites? (Music, movies, books, anything!)
    Music: Peter Gabriel, Live, Kiss, most things really. Movies: Top Gun, Cool Hand Luke, Broken Hearts Club, The Warriors. Books: "It" by Stephen King and a book called "Chickenhawk" but I can't remember the authors name, it was about a helicopter pilot in the Vietnam war.

  18. What DON'T you like about DVD?
    The fact that so many titles are released to a small and limited market when other titles are not released when the market is screaming for them. I also find it really annoying on some music discs when they don't have lyrics/subtitles but that just me I think :)
