An impressive erection!

As you may, or may not know, the eBay ALife4Sale auction did not end as successfully as I had hoped it might, and eventually I had to sell the house via the more traditional route of listing it with a real estate agent. I also managed to sell my car before I set off on […]

BBC end-of-year quiz.

Gillian from France emailed me to say Happy Christmas, and mentioned that I had been the subject of one of the questions in the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) annual end-of-year quiz. I had to take a look! Question 3 in section 3 came as a bit of a surprise. However, unlike many of the other […]

Portland.

Back in June I ran a competition prior to the “ALife4Sale” auction, just for a bit of fun. I had made a short video to show my home theatre system in it’s best light, and asked people to name the movies, video game and concert shown in the clip. You can see the video clip, […]

What an experience!

Yesterday I had one of those amazing life-moments when you are just suddenly hit by where you are and what is happening. Since very early on in the “ALife4Sale” project, I have had occasional contacts from movie and TV producers interested in doing something with the story. I really did not know how to handle […]

TV script writers running out of ideas?

Back in May 2008, during the build up to my “ALife4Sale” auction I did a blog article about an event organised in New York Grand Central Station by a group called Improv Everywhere. The event was called “The Big Freeze”, and you can see what was involved in the video below: I read more about […]

House up for auction… again!

Well, it’s been a frantic few days of packing and organising, paying bills and doing all the necessary paperwork before setting off on my big trip. I missed a few days of blogs, for which I apologise, but it’s been chaos here! I now have a big van parked outside the front of the house, […]

Another “Home Open”.

Four weeks ago today I had my first “Home Open”, the day before the auction was about to start. Little did I realise that less than a month later I would be doing the same again. So I spent most of yesterday cleaning the house (again!). I have no idea how it gets so messy […]

Who bought ALife4Sale? All the answers….

The ALife4Sale auction ended at noon on Sunday 29th June, almost two weeks ago, with the highest bid being AU $399,300. I was quite disappointed with the final amount, which is only at the bottom end of the valuation scale for the house itself, which was valued at between $400,000 and $420,000, but it was […]
