The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

I saw the movie "$9.99" a few years ago and then purchased the DVD when it became available.
It's a quirky Australian/Israeli clay animation movie based 
on Etgar Keret stories.
" The film mainly focuses on 28-year-old Dave Peck, who is unemployed but prefers the search for the meaning of life to the search for gainful employment. 
While looking in a magazine, Dave finds an advertisement for a book that will tell him the meaning of life "for the low price of $9.99." 
Dave, fascinated by this, begins his journey in his Sydney apartment to find the true meaning of life.
As the film progresses, stories of Dave's family and neighbours are woven in and examine the post-modern meaning of hope." 
Whilst it got good reviews it only took $47,300 at the box office in Australia. 
The films worldwide total was $708,354, so it hasn't been seen by that many paying viewers going on those figures.
999 makes up part of my number-plate.
I was thinking about this movie the other day and realized my new number plate had the numbers 999 in it
Any meaning in that?


  1. Endings...and beginnings? A new chapter?

  2. The meaning, don't know. Only 999 I know is that it is the UK's emergency number - police, ambulance fire ...

  3. That's right Mike! I wasn't going to mention it... but seeing as it's out of the bag... :-O
