  1. The movie you’re thinking of (where the cops go under cover to infiltrate car gangs) is The Fast and the Furious.

    I’m not sure about 24hr school zones in SA. When I was there recently I thought I saw school zone signs that said “25 when children present” – which to me makes much more sense (might have been SA, or VIC, or both… Need to do more research), but they’d never do that here in NSW because we have school zone speed cameras that are linked to the fixed operational times of our school zones.

    BJ the Research Guy[TM]

  2. Hey guys, I was listening and thought that bunny made a good effort at a Brazilian accent early in the show. Capoeira is a Brazilian martial arts/dance form. Never thought bunny would try accents. You think she’ll start trying impersonations next? You know, to get ready in case Erk takes her to Hollywood on his trip to the U.S. 🙂

    Drue, sorry to hear about the fire. Lucky it didn’t burn up your apartment though. Could have been wosre.

    Here’s a question for Erk. You were talking about religion class? DId you go to a private school? Or do they have religion class in public schools in Australia?

  3. I like to think of Erk/Drue episodes as “Erk Pod Classic” (TM) episodes. Good luck with your overseas trip, Erk. Make sure you let us know once you’ve got things finalized.

  4. Hey Erk – you listen to the “And Time!” podcasts? That’s cool!

    I wouldn’t have thought they’d be much interest to those outside our incestuous little impro world. 😉

    Hoping to do another Skype with you sometime soon – I have been doing a POWER of theatre stuff lately, so when I get a free afternoon, I’d love to hook up for some podcast action.

    One day I’ll start my own podcast… though God knows what it’ll be on.

    Cheers, Natalie.

  5. Hey Erk – I go past 4 School Zones on my way to work (including one right outside my house), so I know how much they suck…but I guess if it means that I potentially avoid having a kid denting my nice shiny car, then I suppose its not too bad. Still, enjoying school holidays at the moment (and taking 10 mins off my daily commute).

  6. The Twitter 365 thing sounds interesting. But, I’m already doing something like that with Envisage 365, and I’m about halfway through it right now, so I won’t be joining in the Twitter one. I’ve been enjoying looking at everyone else’s photos for that, however. The Envisage 365 one started on September 1, 2008, and seems to be a little different than the Twitter version. For one thing, the Envisage 365 one is entirely made up of women. Another difference is that ours is not just a photo of yourself every day, but instead, a photo of whatever you feel best defines your day. So far, I’m having fun with it. But, some days I have no idea what to take a photo of. Other days, the answer is obvious! 😉

    Good luck with your Twitter 365, Erk and Druey. I hope you have fun with it.
