Adventures in sport and culture, Melbourne – July 10, 2009

Anna and I visited Melbourne as a birthday gift to ourselves. We hit the Old Melbourne Gaol (cool) and saw the musical “Wicked” on Friday, then the Richmond-Carlton AFL game at the MCG with friend Luke on Saturday. On Sunday we took in the Salvador Dali exhibit at the NGV. But perhaps best of all, we sat in little alleyway cafes eating a great breakfast everyday! We like Melbourne 🙂

Police asked to explain KD Lang escort – April 22, 2008

Canadian singer KD Lang appearred on the popular Rove Live television program this past Sunday evening after receiving a police escort to the show’s Melbourne studios.

Lang’s flight from Perth to Melbourne was heavily delayed on Sunday evening, but with the escort she was able to make it to the studio in time to finish the live broadcast. The trouble is, the police escort wasn’t authorised – and the Victorian motorcycle officer who escorted Lang’s car is now deep in hot water with his superiors. The state’s Opposition party is having a field day with it, arguing that official resources are better spent on reducing the number of road fatalities.
