We sell when "Oyster Farmer" is back on YouTube


The Australian movie "Oyster Farmer" is one of my favourites. It's nothing deep and meaningful but the stunning scenery of the Hawkesbury River coupled with the parochial lingo and mores of its richly textured characters and their vague feelings about the bitter-sweet quality of life – its longings, broken dreams, hopes, past baggage, forgiveness, and coming to terms and just getting on with it - make it a movie that stays with you for a long time. The full-length movie appeared on YouTube several times, and several times it was taken off again because of obvious copyright infringements.

We have been debating if and when to put "Riverbend" back on sale again. Several previously interested parties have recently emailed me, asking if "Riverbend" is still for sale, without adding the implied "at the old price?" Perhaps I should put them out of their misery by relisting it on realestate.com.au with my new price of three million - or should I make it $2,999,999.99 and throw in a free copy of "Oyster Farmer"?

Anyway, I wait a little longer, perhaps until the full-length movie "Oyster Farmer" is back on YouTube to save me having to give away a free copy.
