My Fantasy Football Team

Ronaldo's captain (even though he one of my least favourite players of all time!) but who'd bet against him this season after last?

Q: Why Am I A Feminist?

A: Let me show you what I woke up to today (and it's a pretty typical day).

Firstly there's a story about maid abuse, then there's an undercover exposé of prostitution in SE Asia.

Oh and this is another story I read a while back.

(I gotta write up some of my thoughts on prostitution itself one of these days...)

3 Girls

Rush Hour 3

I loved Rush Hour 1 & 2. In fact Rush Hour 2 is probably my favourite movie of all time.

However I've been watching some trailers of Rush Hour 3 on YouTube. They are terrible!!

Movie studios may have own the rights to these movies, and obviously they want to maximise their profits -- but in the process they are sucking the life out of my favourite characters.

Ditto Spiderman 3, Pirates of the Caribbean 2 & 3.

TV series are no different -- I loved Desperate Housewives series 1, the following series are just turning it into a fantastically twee soap.

Lost series 1 was brilliant too - but it's turning into the X Files, there's no beginning, middle and end!! The mysteries will just go on and on and on, leaving me feeling unsatisfied and cheated. That's in contrast to something like Neon Genesis Evangelion, which had a proper ending after 24(?) episodes!!

I love Heroes series 1 - and I just hope beyond hope that series 2 won't sour my affection for all the characters - fat chance I reckon...

The sad part is, that I'll probably go along to Rush Hour 3, and sit through it. It will most likely ruin my love of Chief Inspector Lee and Detective James Carter... But however forlorn my hope is, I can't give up on them just yet.

It's the hope that is killing me!
