Australians are crazy, man! Every night, I feel like I’m in a scene from Brad Pitt’s ‘World War Z’… the kids are going to figure out a way to from a zombie rave ladder over the plexiglass and come into the DJ booth and eat me alive… Not in a bad way at all.

It was very frustrating when I was president of Hakoah. You could not make any headway. We couldn’t attract the public because it was an ethnic game. Australians were not interested.

Compared to the United States and certainly a lot of other countries around the world… per year, Australians do see more films.
In a world as competitive as ours, the child who does not get a decent education is condemned to the fringes of society. I think all Australians agree that this is intolerable.
