    Death at a funeral is perhaps the funniest film I have ever seen and the Austin powers films are good but I don't know if you would be into those

    I enjoyed Garbage Warrior also. Keen to try this in Australia but don't want to be in the middle of nowhere.

    Yes I did. Plenty about earthships on YouTube. The Phoenix is my favourite. A mix of earthship concepts and more "acceptable" building materials relabelled as an "Eco Home" might be more readily accepted here. Kind of defeats the purpose though. Also wifey has claustrophobia. So a room with no open windows and half buried underground would trigger the "buried alive in a coffin" panic button.:oops:
