A Note from a Friend

Our Friend Hannah B. asked this to be forwarded to whoever we could access. I figured this was probably the best way to send it out. 

10 stunning cinemas to tempt you away from your Netflix addiction

Because every movie is better when you see it in a great cinema. (Picture: Getty) In a world chocked full of generic Odeons and Cineworlds, a beautiful cinema really is something to get excited about. We go to the movies to escape our humdrum lives for a few hours, to immerse ourselves in magical, fantasy worlds of gorgeous people and epic love stories. So why not do it in a palace brimming with history and romance? If you’re going to fork out £15 for a cinema ticket, you should do it in true Read the full story

Thanks everyone!

Run for a Cure!- Dave in San Francisco!

Hey all,

 My dear friend Brittany Barrick will be running for a cure for leukemia and lymphoma in a few weeks in a half-marathon in San Francisco (one of Dave's favorite cities in America).

 Dave's name will be proudly represented on her back in memory of his amazing life and strong will to fight.

Please join me in supporting her on her amazing run. every dollar counts so any amount, small or large, would be greatly appreciated. Brittany will be accepting donations for this San Francisco run until THIS TUESDAY but will continue to accept donations for a cure through the end of the month. Below is a link to her fundraising page.

I can't wait to see Uncle Dave on the streets of San Francisco again, CAN YOU????

Thoughts from Phoebe Hart

Hi there,

I have a few things to add to the blog....  The attached photo was taken in the summer of 2002, on my honeymoon with James Davidson in Massachusetts.

Dave was always a big supporter of everything we did - especially our creative endeavours.  Our 'quasi Aussie'.

  • How did you meet Dave?
He was a best friend to my fiance then husband, James Davidson.
  • What was your first impression of him?
Just a lovely, fun-loving, glass-half-full, huggy bear of a guy.
  • Tell us about a good time you had with dave.
He took us all around Massachusetts in 2002 and was an exceptional host.
  • Tell us about a crazy idea he shared with you, or you shared with him.
He shared his undying love for Australian actress Sigrid Thornton (and for Australian cinema generally!).  
  • Tell us something about your relationship with Dave that made it extra special.
He just supported everything I did.  He always celebrated my successes and victories as if they were his own.
  • Tell us about something Dave did for you that made you feel important or significant.
He watched an early cut of my autobiographical film Orchids: My Intersex Adventure, which was about a particularly traumatic aspect of my life.  I was very nervous about what people would think and he was just so cool, impressed, understanding, reflective and supportive.
  • Tell us about a time when Dave inspired you. What came of it?
He just always inspired me to be me and treat everyone with love and respect.

Dear Uncle Dave

Dear Uncle Dave,

Last weekend I took the GRE and did REALLY WELL!!!!! David and I also found this reeally good micro-brewery. I've been trying to eat at as few chain restaurants as possible whenever I travel. It's been going swimmingly. But I'll still never give up my Red Robin french fries because really, those things are delicious. The summer on the east coast has been incredibly mild so David and I are in heaven. Peanut is doing well too. James Taylor came on the radio while I was editing your blog today in Cafe Lemonte, a small off beat place that David and I discovered near our apartment. I think you would definitely approve. Also, I hope you saw that a Brit won men's Wimbledon! I'm sure your not disappointed. David's Grandpa and Uncle were able to actually attend in England. Isn't that cool? I miss you and love you and think of you often.

Love always, Char

p.s. Please stop creeping up on me when I'm at work. I'm doing my best.
