this weekend i had the amazing experience of doing the 40 hour famine while locked in the big brother house. the 40 hour lock-in, as it was dubbed, was a once in a life experience that raised awareness and money to help children, families and communities in desperate need. so far we have managed to raise over $16,000 for world vision australia, but it is not too late for you to donate.
i covered my time in the house on twitter (see my #40hrlockin tweetstream here), as well posting photos to posterous (see here) and audio tweets to audioboo (listen here).
this morning weekend sunrise also payed a visit to the big brother house:

the invention of lying trailer looks quite good. this is how jason kottke summarises it:
The world of the movie is one in which everyone tells the truth all the time…until Gervais invents lying. It also stars every other Hollywood actor and comic in the world, including Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman, Patrick Stewart, Jeffrey Tambor, Tina Fey, Christopher Guest, Rob Lowe, Louis C.K., and John Hodgman. (You know it’s quite an august list when you have to stick “and John Hodgman” on the end of it.)
