  1. How about an Australian accent? I hadn’t realised he’s barely done any other work during the run of TWD. By choice.
  2. 2021 looks like being a boom year for Aussie films at the Australian box office. The Dry has spent the last 2 weekends at #1 and will probably drop to #2 this weekend with Penguin Bloom taking top spot. Both are very good films. The Dry is a mystery thriller staring Eric Bana as an Australian Federal Police officer who returns to his hometown, after being absent for 20 years, for the funeral of a childhood friend who allegedly killed his wife and child before killing himself. Penguin Bloom stars Naomi Watts and Andrew Lincoln and is based on the true story of a Sydney Northern Beaches family that adopt a magpie chick. It’s a nice family film. I saw it this afternoon and it’s on Netflix in the US from Wednesday. A bit of good cinema news.
  3. It’s just shocking. That’s almost double the total deaths in Australia in just one day.
  4. The Dry barely drops to stay at #1 with a cume of $9.79m. WW1984 is now at $21.32m and is probably unlikely to pass the original now. Croods 2 is up to $15.85m.
  5. One of the great things NSW Health does is every week they release an extremely detailed epidemiological report. It’s a fascinating look at testing and contact tracing. With detailed reports about individual clusters. Here is the latest. https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/covid-19/Documents/covid-19-surveillance-report-20210109.pdf Historic reports. https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/covid-19/Pages/weekly-reports.aspx
  6. January is always like this. Many people would have 2-3 weeks off plus huge numbers are still working from home so presumably have more flexible hours.
  7. Looks like 4th on Wednesday for Master with $283,514. It’s still school holidays plus the latest COVID outbreaks are ending. National 🍩 day today.
  8. To be blunt the current debates in Australia are nuts given our situation and the rest of the world. There are some truly insane groups here.
  9. NSW in Australia has continued to crush any outbreaks via contact tracing and the isolation of close contacts. The source of outbreaks has generally been via the hotel quarantine system. NSW has processed over 120,000 people through hotel quarantine which is more than half the national total. NSW Health has generally been excellent with high testing rates, genome sequencing and isolation of close contacts. There hasn’t been a statewide lockdown since May with only a localised lockdown in Sydney’s Northern Beaches which was lifted a few days ago. Face masks only became mandatory in most areas of Greater Sydney on 4th January. Life has been reasonably normal since June.
  10. I’ve been to the Circular Quay cinemas a few times when it was Dendy. Haven’t been since it changed to United Cinemas. It closed as Dendy at the end of February 2020.
  11. At Day 2 of the Sydney Test today at the SCG. Australia vs India. Very COVID safe.
  12. All cinemas would still qualify for JobKeeper. They would be maintaining the same number of staff but the hours for all staff are probably matching the current JobKeeper amount. The Federal Government is still probably paying the bulk of their wages bill. I don't think they would stay open without a JobKeeper style arrangement for possibly all of 2021. Edit: Should have read the article first. It doesn't even mention this.
  13. (The entire suburb is the largest cemetery in the Southern Hemisphere)
