My Weekend Crush

I always wonder why Thandie Newton isn't a bigger star. Make no mistake, she is gorgeous. The kind of gorgeous that serves as a constant reminder that movie stars are in fact an entirely different species from us mere mortals. She is so exquisite that her diaphanous features seem almost sculpted. All that and she is immensely talented to boot. Watch “Beloved.” Watch “Crash.” Fine, don't watch “Mission: Impossible II.” Sadly her talents have too often been squandered in things like that horrid fat-suit movie at rhymes with “sherbet.” Still I'm intrigued to see how she portrays Condoleezza Rice in the upcoming “W.” And I'm more intrigued by her recent interview discussion of a teenage romance with one of her closest girlfriends where she said “I think falling in love is actually more about falling in love with an individual. We’re all potentially bisexual....I could’ve easily fallen in love with a woman over a man. My husband Ol’s kind of a man-woman. Look, I once loved Tim Curry, so there you go.” Well, who wasn't in love with Tim Curry? Particularly in lingerie. Happy weekend, all.

That was my first comment to the last girl I crushed on, "You remind me of a celebrity, yes, Thandie Newton". Because she was wearing a tank top and an aviator sunglasses and her diaphanous features were gorgeously structured and I immediately fell for it. (too bad she's so straight, then again, a friend reminded me, human's sexual preferences is at equilibrium).

Anyways, yeah, Thandie Newton is such a gorgeous lady. I first noticed her in "Besieged". And only in "Truth About Charlie" that she actually looked gorgeous and I was like "hey, this was the maid in 'Besieged'!"

Gotta love the bisexual actresses that say it's so... I think I kinda had a tiny crush on Tim Curry too, but it was just the decadence of it all...

Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

A bank is nearly bankrupt......

How it affect you? Did you buy insurance? Did you buy mini note or bonds?

Who fault?

They only talk about how bad the crisis will be, but they did not give regulation measures…..

Although not approved initially when thinking of using tax payer money, $700B is used to save finance industry only, how about the industry that you are in.....retail industry, construction industry, manufacturing industry, R&D, electronics, electrical, mechanical, chemical, IT etc.... each industry will be able to enjoy at least $10B.......Which will make every industry vibrant…..

They say without using tax payer money, they will not be able to lend to small companies…..

Bank primary role is to lend money….else what sort of business will let them earn….?

Many companies had been merged and consolidated, and they are stronger now, so don’t bail out, they will consolidated…..

Many ways of raising their own funds eg preference shares, sovereignty fund etc.


The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......

We must push for it for our next generations......


Sign a petition to your favourite president candidate, congress member again and ask for their views to comment on this, and what regulations they are going to raise for implementation.....If you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible....

Media and finance sector are the only two sectors ( hopefully Hacker can also ) which can overcome political incorrect power, so it is time to fine tune to the correct path, so hopefully media can united to report the truth...... ( because after this incident, they will still required media in future )

first saw thandie newton in aussie film "flirting" along with nicole kidman and was most impressed. Happy weekend all!

I liked her in Flirting, too, a zillion years ago. She was so cute as a teenager, and so beautiful now.

I can't really picture her as Condi Rice, though. I guess that'll be interesting!

these kinds of comments from moviestars and anyone with a public mouthpiece always leave me feeling a little ambivalent and a little uncomfortable. On the one hand, "yay! someone loudly and casually admitting that bisexuality is a-okay! huzzah" on the other hand...I have this sinking sensation that they are at the same time trying to slide it under the rug "look, *everyone's* a little "bisexual" and I ended up in a nice , heterosexual, traditionally structured relationship, so it's fine. It's not really "not being straight." I'm not different! Everyone is like this if only they'd admit it." And I'm not sure that's true. I'm pretty sure that's isn't the case, as far as I can see, actually. I mean, does everyone's sexuality fall into neatly compartmentalized boxes of "Likes girls" "Likes boys" "Hates sex"? No. But enough people out there get their bisexual-hate on often enough that I don't want to see it treated as some quirky, LUG-y subset of heterosexuality. As when Megan Fox "came out," I wanted to say (and I believe you, Ms. Snarker, did) "No, everyone is not bisexual. *You* are."
