Just a fraction of what's lost from dodgy multinationals funnelling profits to tax havens.

 

But that's "legal" ... and perfectly OK according to Cayman Island investor Malcolm Turnbull

A bit pissed off - yesterday managed to fry the nano receiver for one of my airmouses.  Used my inline USB volt/amp meter and it's not sucking any juice - the one for my other one uses 0.04 Amps.

WOMM. earlier today this was ... http://www.abc.net.a...acklash/9994052

 

I don't have much of a thought either way about the actress or the movie, but I do have a thought about a  force insinuating it's supposed right over that of the person/s wanting to make an artistic representation to the best of their ability.

 

If the ' force' was footing the bill for the production then sure have whoever fits your agenda, but to interfere with an independent production, that I don't see as doing any harm, in choosing their preferred actor is calls for bullying and intimidation by said 'force'. << and that is despicable

it's all a bit weird

 

given these people are actors (actresses, even) portraying characters, it all seems a bit "correct" to require someone who is somehow "appropriate" to be obligatory

 

 

like, i know the lion in the wizard of oz wasn't actually a lion, and that alanis morisette wasn't really a deity in dogma

 

 

what about straight actors playing gay ones ?  older actors playing younger characters ? i know blackface is out of style, but somehow the general ambience of  correctness seems too intense

 

 

only real murderers can play a killer  /  drug addicts can play a junkie / psychiatric patients can play (insert politically correct term for loonie) ?

 

 

i can appreciate the reason why transgender people feel they should be offered opportunities to portray themselves, but surely the whole idea of acting is to pretend to be characters you aren't, otherwise it's a documentary, not a fictional representation


ummmmmmmmmmm............

IMHO, Scarlett Johansson has lost massive kudos for backing away from the film. I hope the producer and director either make another choice, apart from the force of the LGBT community, or just shelve the production for now.

Get an actual trans... guess what - the acting quality will probably be about what you'd expect from an entry-level Home & Away character.

Even with all this extra publicity, it'll probably still be a flop.

OK, just got out from another stay in hospital

while there , the young guy in the bed next to was upset as two rings and a necklace he bought to hospital were "misplaced" (later found)

 

he claimed these 3 pieces of jewelry were $8000

I question why any male would want such expensive jewelry?

(and why you would still be wearing them in hospital)

without jumping on you for a natural enough gender stereotype thats a non-issue, i question why any person would want such expensive jewellery.

 

 

but the probable answer is, it couldnt hurt his appeal to hot young nurses - duh! :P

It starts out as image projection, then becomes a sort of security blanket thing.

 

Not that I'm claiming to be not materialistic or anything... but FFS, I'd be throwing a spare $8K at something with a whole lot more practical value than stupid bling.
