Hot Asian Men 2

Andrew Ley. The american model is hot stuff.

Paolo Montalban. This stunning actor of Philippino origin played Brandy's prince in a remake of Cinderella, lucky Brandy.

Vietnamese actor Johnny Nguyen, Nice.

Dennis Oh. People seem to ask Dennis Oh or Daniel Henney? Doesn't matter, they're both ridiculously gorgeous.

Oh Ji Ho. Korean actor and model. There are some unbelievably scrumptious Korean men out there and he's one of them.

Ando Masanobu. The versatile and talented Japanese actor and director won the best new actor award in Japan for Takeshi Kitano's Kids Return. I think he's an absolutely beautiful, dreamy man. He also seems quite alternative and kooky, which I like.

Edison Chen. The Chinese Canadian rapper and actor is definitely a rasacal, he left Hong Kong embroiled in a sex scandal...I'm not holding it against him, good looking dude.

Phillip Wong, the producer from Wong Fu Productions is such a cutie.

David Lim. Chinese American Ford model, he also holds a degree in electrical engineering, not just a pretty face and sexy body.

Bae Jungnam. The sexy south korean model has attitude and swagger. I like his style.

R.I.P Elizabeth Taylor

Screen godess Elizabeth Taylor has died. She lived a full and remarkable life. She seemed like an irrepressible character and was a great friend to Michael Jackson. I'll always remember her fantastic roles in A Place In The Sun with the insanely beautiful Montgomery Clift, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof with the gorgeous Paul Newman and of course, her phenomenal performance in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf where her and then husband Richard Burton play a warring couple who rip each other to shreds to the dismay of their two unsuspecting guests. Rest in peace, the world will never forget you.

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

I bet you didn't know that the first immortal human cell line ever produced in the world, that proceeded to become one of the most important tools in medicine, originated from the cells of a poor black woman from Virginia named Henrietta Lacks. Her cells led to major breakthroughs in everything from cloning, gene mapping, in viro fertilization, Parkinsons disease, leukemia, polio and haemophilia. And yet up to the year 2009 her body was left in an unmarked grave, her name ,contribution and history hidden. It is another one of those racist,awful injustices that many people aren't aware of.

Her cells were taken without her permisson, her family never informed until recently. They were completely unaware that her cells helped saved thousands of lives and still do till this day. The medical profession made a fortune through her, of course Henrietta never made a dime. Thank goodness science journalist Rebecca Skloot who became fascinated with Henrietta's story over ten years ago has brought it to the forefront. Her book The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks is out now. I'm absorbed in it and it's a fascinating, hearbreaking read.

XY Chromosome Sundae: Diego Luna

The unique Diego Luna is a Mexican actor renowned
for his roles in Y tu mama tambien, The Terminal,
Mister Lonely (one of my personal favourites), Milk
and many others. He's a very talented actor and no
doubt about it, hot. So is his buddy Gael Garcia Bernal.
They sure know how to produce them in Mexico.


Bound is a great noirish gangter flick by the Wachowski
brothers starring Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly.
Violet played by Jennifer Tilly longs to escape her relationship
with her mafia boyfriend. She begins a relationsip with
an enticing ex con Gina Gershon and they plot to steal $2 from
the mafia. The film is famous for it's lesbian sub plot and
was a great debut from the Wachowskis. Considering the
limited locations in the movie, their use of angles is clever,
creative and interesting.

Alpacas A Not So Secret Pet Wish

I saw a documentary about Alpacas a while back and find them
intriguing, strange animals. They have a sweetness about them
and are very curious animals as well as having some odd behaviour.
They're members of the camel family. Along with their funny
hairstyles and expressions, they are keen explorers, like to sun
bathe. Preferably on their back with their legs in the air and hum
when they're concerned about something. I don't own a farm and live
in the city but I'd love one. I'd take it out for walks and shit, play it
some music, find out if it preferred Pac or Biggie, that's always a

Fashion Spotlight: Florence Welch

Florence Welch is bold in so many ways; her music,
her writing and her style. It's signature Florence, unique
and daring. She's unpredictable in terms of fashion choices
and that makes her compelling. Love her red hair and
she's a remarkable artist.

Staff Benda Bilili

If you haven't heard of the phenomenal Staff Benda Bilili
you've been missing out. They're a group of disabled Congolese
musicians who have travelled the world with their infectious,
uplifting brand of music. Their story is amazing. The documentary
about their life is out and has received rave reviews. I'm looking
forward to seeing it.

Shed of Geekdom: Little Big Planet

Little Big Planet is a brilliant game and a unique experience.
It allows you to learn about the world in an interactive way.
You can create your own levels and content, manipulate
and decorate aspects of the game and the main character.
The knitted cutie is just adorable.

Watch List: Joseph Gordon Levitt in new Batman flick.

Good news, Joseph Gordon Levitt has been cast in
the new Batman film The Dark Knight Rises as
Alberto Falcone. Yum. He'll be playing a villain
and I can't wait to see him work those acting chops.
I think he's quirky and brings a dynamism and particular
feel to his parts. Ever since Mysterious Skin I've
been a big fan. He's a beautiful looking man and a
bright talent.

Romance Playlist 2

Black Orpheus.
Based on the Orpheus and Eurydice myth and set during the Rio de Jeneiro
carnival. Great film starring the handsome Breno Mello and the incredible
looking Marpessa Dawn.

Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind.
Michele Gondry's inventive masterpiece is about a couple who undertake a
procedure to erase each other from their memories when things go downhill.
I love this film so much, one of my favourite movies ever. Jim Carey and
Kate Winslet are briliant. The script was written by
Charlie Kaufman.

The English Patient.
Anthony Minghella's epic masterpiece based on the novel
by Sri Lankan Canadian author Michael Ondaatje. The book
is amazing, so is the movie. Juliette Binoche is a godess.

She's Gotta Have It.
A great ground breaking independent comedy drama from the ever
controversial Spike Lee. About a woman juggling three lovers. It
stars Tracy Camilla Johns.

Mo Better Blues.
And so my obsession with Denzel Washington as a teenager began.
To tell the truth, it began with The Mighty Quinn. But this offering
from Spike Lee melted my heart and other parts of me. Denzel was a
drop dead, gorgeous, intense, smouldering magnetic black man and
I could not take my eyes of him. I collected posters, watched
everything with him I could get my hands on and recorded every
interview I caught. I was mad about him, still am. Oh, the film's pretty
cool too. He and Wesley Snipes are great as squabbling band members.

The Piano Teacher.
My God what can I say about this astonishing movie?
Director Michael Haneke is a genius but if you're familiar
with his films you'll know this already. Isabelle Huppert
plays a character so complex, you're left still attempting to
unravel her long after the film is finished. A superb
tale of dark, twisted obsessive love.

Love Jones.
Cool cool film and one of my favourite romance flicks. She's a beautiful photographer,
he's a sweet talking writer. The stunning Nia Long and sexy Larenz Tate star in the
familiar tale of boy meets girl, boy screws up and all the complications along the way.
It also depicted the black middleclass, that's always refreshing to see. Both
Larenz and Nia don't seem to have aged one bit either.

Featuring an all black cast, Otto Preminger's movie based
on Bizet's opera was a triumph. Beautiful femme fetale
Dorothy Dandridge sizzled on screen. The fantastically
handsome Harry Belafonte also held his own as her hapless
boyfriend Joe.

True Romance.
Written by Quentin Tarrantino, this is a whirlwind
of a film. When Christian Slater was still very sexy
and reminded me of a young (but better looking)
Jack Nicholson. He saves hooker Alabama from
a life of postitution, steals from her pimp and they
run to Hollywood. The excellent Gary Oldman also
stars in this.Cracking stuff.

Love and Basketball.
Another favourite. The story of two childhood sweethearts
who grow up loving basketball and the journeys they take
to try to make their dreams happen. Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan
have a palpable onscreen connection. They were actually dating each
other at the time, which makes sense now looking back. They looked
so good together. Sexy, heart warming film.

500 Days of Summer.
I'm in love with Joseph Gordon Levitt, I really am.
He's fantastic. In this offbeat tale his character falls for
a woman who doesn't believe love exists. Heartbreak
ensues. Good soundtrack too.

As Good As It Gets.
Absolutely hilarious film. An obsessive compulsive novelist
falls in love with a singe mother. Jack Nicholson is comedy
gold and can do anything. Also stars Helen Hunt,
Cuba Gooding Jnr and Greg Kinear.

The Virgin Suicides.
Directed by Sofia Coppola and based
on the phenomenal book by Jeffrey Eugenides.
A bunch of teenage male friends become
obsessed with a group of sisters who are sheltered
by their strict, religious parents after one of them
commits suicide. Haunting and quirky, Kirsten
Dunst stars.

Eagle Vs Shark.
Two socially awkward misfits find love and enact revenge
on past bullies.
