Boy do I know how to pick 'em!

Ex-EastEnders star Michelle Ryan set for
massive success as Bionic Woman!

Can I have the luxury of saying 'I told you so!' ? Last year, in my post 'BiskutNaga's Best of Women 2006', I listed Michelle Ryan at number 9. Most commented and asked "who the hell is she??". I knew Jennifer Connelly was gonna be huge, since the Labyrinth (1986), when nobody liked her, and then she won an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for: A Beautiful Mind (2001). Anyway for those who won't click on the link above, this is what i wrote:-

Number 9:- MICHELLE RYAN (The Next Best UK export after Zeta Jones)
Honestly, I don't know much about her and I've never seen an episode of Eastenders, I just stumbled across her picture while surfing the net one day and thought she was gorgeous. Michelle Ryan is a television actress who was born in Enfield, Middlesex on the 22 April 1984. Michelle has appeared Eastenders, Cashback, Comic Relief, Burnside, The Worst Witch, Fair Is Foul & Fouls Are Fair to mention a few. She is hot. I predict she will be the next Catherine Zeta. So look out for her.

I predicted back in September 2006 that she will be the next big thing in Hollywood, and here is proof that I am right! Hah! So booooo to all those who thought I was mad...

Seen here in the first images released of her in the role, Ryan will play Jamie Sommers, a tennis pro who suffers a near-fatal skydiving accident before her body is transformed with £25million worth of bionic wizardry. The actress best known for her role as Zoe Slater in EastEnders beat off stiff competition from Hollywood actresses to land the role. US TV bosses are so pleased with the pilot, they have commissioned a series which will be shown later this year.

In stills from the show Ryan can be seen leaping from tall buildings, and engaging in martial arts style fighting in the driving rain. Producers say the pilot show for US network NBC will be a "re-imagination" of the original, a spin-off from cult hit The Six Million Dollar Man, which ran from 1976 to 1978 and starred Lindsay Wagner.

An unknown in the US, except maybe to EastEnders fans, the London-born actress has been quietly working to establish a career for herself in Hollywood. Ryan has also starred in feature film "I Want Candy" alongside Carmen Electra and upcoming horror movie "Flick" with Faye Dunaway.

Once again... HAH!... I TOLD YOU SO!

My XBOX 360 just got BANNED!

Its not enough that I've been using Microsoft products since the death of the Apple 2 C and the Commodore 64, way back in the 80s! I have used DOS, WINDOWS, WINDOWS 3.11, Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows Millennium, Windows XP and NOW Vista. All of which I have paid good money for mind you. Now you have banned me from playing on XBox Live. DAMN YOU BILL GATES!! As if you are not rich enough.. Microsoft, you cock ass of a company.

Console hackers: beware! Microsoft has officially taken the hard line on hacked consoles connecting to Xbox Live. According to the Xbox's Gamerscore blog, henceforth when a modded console is detected on the Live network, users can expect to have their account auto-banned, and their console permanently disabled from the system. Damn. Granted, we can't really fault Xbox for trying to keep cheating between gamers on the level, but anything that so actively deincentivizes people from toying around with their own hardware is a serious bummer.

Ok ok, yes I modified my console. And yes it facilitates piracy but from Microsoft stand point, haven't you already profited from when I bought the console? Not to mention the fact that I subscribe i.e PAY YOU for the Online Live feature? Microsoft makes a few titles themselves, so I don't think that equates to much of loss in revenue, does it?

I don't really understand this strategy.. if its about piracy, then this doesn't stop it as you are still able to play pirated games. Its just that you can't go online anymore. For most gamers in Asia, going online is not that important. Hell, countries like Indonesia don't even have broadband yet. If anything, Microsoft will lose out in Xbox Live subscriptions.

For me now, I am stuck with the dilemma of waiting to see if the Hackers of the world can find a way around this problem? Or do I swallow my pride and purchase yet another console, this time UN-modified, solely to play a FEW titles and pay full price so that I can play online with my friends?

What ever it is, damn you, bastard Jew bitches! I hope you choke on swallowing all your money!

Women of Yesteryear No.11

This post is specially for a friend of mine who after reading my blog, messaged me and insisted, at 2 in the morning, that I include Erin Grey in my top 10 list. Going so far as to have me 'bump the bond chick off' and replace her with Erin. This is my compromise. She was considered my shortlist originally but was not included because her pictures reminded me of my cousin. Shish!! Anyway, here you go.

Number 11:- Erin Grey (the future babe)

Erin was known for her role of Wilma Deering in Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - at first for a theatrically released movie, then for a recurring TV show. Gray's trim, shapely figure, augmented by a tight one piece jumpsuit, was popular with the show's predominantly young male audience. However, the character was high profile within the show, second only to Gil Gerard in the lead role, and represented one of the early examples of a strong female character in a science fiction setting; because of this she was seen as important role model for female viewers. She once told an interviewer, “I was the first female colonel. I enjoyed being that kind of role model for young women watching the show. A woman can be a colonel! A woman can be in charge! Those were new ideas then. Ah whatever!

BiskutNaga's Top 10 Women of Yesteryear

The time has come for a top ten list! Here is my list of the hottest women that i have had a crush on when I was a wee lad. Most of these women are old and grey, some are dead. But lets not focus on that, lets remember them as they were. At their prime. Try to imagine that they are your age, single, in-to-you and sitting right next to you reading this blog with you, with their arms around you. Makes it more fun rather than look up where are they now and being horrified to see how some have not aged gracefully or worse, dead. So please don't judge me. Let's enjoy. Once again, I prefer not to place them in any particular order, but for the sake of a 'top ten' list, I will try.

Number 10:- Maren Jensen (the original interstellar babe)

Maren best known for portraying Athena in the 1970s television series Battlestar Galactica. I use to think she was the hottest babe on television. I always wondered what happen to her after Battlestar. I never saw her in anything else. Apparently, Maren was one of the first Hollywood Actors to get sick with Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome. The illness contributed to her leaving the acting profession. That figures. In any case, we remember you, Maren.

Number 9:- Joan Severance (B-Movie babe of choice)

Joan usually takes the femme fatale roles in lower budget horror and murder mystery movies, most notably Lake Consequence (1993), Criminal Passion (1994) and Payback (1995). She memorably featured alongside Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder in the 1989 comedy See No Evil, Hear No Evil. I particularly remember a shower scene in that movie, I would pause and slow-mo the video tape over and over. She was hot and had a killer body. Joan was on the covers of the January 1990 and November 1992 issues of Playboy magazine, both featuring her in a nude pictorial. Her pictures are considered some of the most distinctive examples of nude modeling of an actresses of her generation.

Number 8:- Morgan Fairchild (80s super-biatch)

Fairchild is unique in the sense that she has never had a starring role in a successful film or television series. She cultivated an image through her glamor as well as her extremely professional and courteous personality. Quite a contrast from the "divas" she tends to portray. In 1982 she played Jamie Douglas, a newscaster, in the sexy thriller The Seduction, where her riveting nude scene cemented her position as one of Hollywood's bad girls. Growing up, she was the 'older woman' that I wish would corner me in a room at a party and seduce me. Teach me in the ways of love. Sadly that never happened. Oh well.

Number 7:- Karen Velez (all time favorite playmate)

She was Playboy's Playmate of the Month for December 1984 and became the Playmate of the Year in 1985. Velez was the first Puerto Rican Playboy Playmate of the Year as well as the first Puerto Rican Playmate of the Month to be featured in the magazine in chronologically consecutive order after another Hispanic Playmate of the Month. I believe I first saw her in a playmate centerfold video. Man, did that tape change my world. Till this day, I don't think there has ever been another playmate quite like her. Of course, this is just my opinion. I'm sure you have your favorite. Pamela? Jenny? Anna Nicole? Nah. Just Karen thanks.

Number 6:- Kelly LeBrock (fantasy girl come-to-life)

Kelly is known for her acting debut in The Woman in Red, and later on in the film, Weird Science. Weird Science is one of the best 80's comedy that was ever made. It's a corny, dated quality but one that is tangible and valued by my fellow eighties loving fans to this day. What more could a day dreaming boy like me ask for? The ability to make your dream girl. Cut out and scan female body parts from magazines. Then have the computer make a woman come to life. Genius. Oh I love her English accent. I think she is the reason I find British women so attractive. Classy.

Number 5:- Pam Dawber (the Mindy to my Mork)

Her character was the comedic foil and eventual love interest for Robin Williams' character, Mork from the planet "Ork". As any boy growing up in the 80s, I my think self esteem was low, not to mention insecure about girls. For me I think it was the fact Pam's charcter Mindy loved Mork no matter what. Robin Williams isn't the most stunning man, but he was funny. Mindy loved Mork for the person inside and that's why she was so attractive to me. With a girl like this, you can be yourself, fart, and she'll still love you.

Number 4:- Amanda Pays (hot homebase computer babe)

Just to make my point about hot women from England, here is Amanda Pays. Pays is best known for her roles as Theora Jones in the movie and television series Max Headroom and as Christina "Tina" McGee in The Flash. Those smoking, longing eyes made the Flash run back to home base ever so quickly. She represents the typical 'I'm the hot yet innocent but am also smart because I'm English' type women of Hollywood typecasting. Winner.

Number 3:- Phoebe Cates (the bring home to mom girlfriend)

Phoebe Cates best known for her roles in several teen films, most notably Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Gremlins. At the height of her popularity, Harper's Bazaar named her as one of America's 10 Most Beautiful Women of 1984. Her later roles were more modest and largely oriented toward younger audiences, who remember her best as the female lead in the two Gremlins films. Her face made the covers of teen magazines such as Seventeen, Tiger Beat, Teen Beat and others. When you talk about the 80s and the women that impacted our lives in TV and film, Phoebe Cates must be one of them. She certainly was for me.

Number 2:- Carole Bouquet (best bond chick ever)

Carole Bouquet is a French actress best known internationally as Bond girl Melina Havelock in For Your Eyes Only. Without a doubt, Carole was and is the best James Bond chick ever. When she says "for your eyes only james" at the end of the movie, I felt almost angry at Roger Moore for being so lucky to be in that scene with her. Bouquet was a model for Chanel in the 1990s. Oh my goodness was she hot.

Number 1:- Isabella Rossellini (ultimate hot woman of yesteryear)

Just check out her full name. Its Isabella Fiorella Elettra Giovanna Rossellini. She is a child of cinema royalty. Her mother, actress Ingrid Bergman, starred in Casablanca, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and Hitchcock's Spellbound. Her father, Roberto Rossellini, was an Italian screenwriter, director, and producer. From 1982-96, she was the celebrity face of LancĂ´me cosmetics, but the company ended the arrangement, fearing that Rossellini was too old to be seen as attractive. She has continued making films, including Wild at Heart with Nicolas Cage and Wyatt Earp with Kevin Costner. She has also played the fierce aunt Katya on TV's Alias with Jennifer Garner. Chosen by People magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the world two years in a row 1990 and 1991. Enough said.
