My Encounter With Malena


Guess who I saw on the streets of T.O. yesterday?

Yup, quite possibly the most beautiful woman in the world: Monica Bellucci.


See, this movie crew has taken over the parking lot across the street from work for their trailers, etc. When I left work yesterday, I could see a film crew down the street and I decided to check it out (I did study Radio and Television Arts, after all, and wouldn't mind getting into film production).

...and I knew the raven-haired goddess was in town shooting a film with Clive Owen, who has been seen hanging around the Drake Hotel amongst other hot spots.

I could see the action centred around a single actress near an old green bus marked "Wherever". She was all bundled up so it was hard to tell, but I could see some dark hair. She was about 40 feet away and my eyeglass prescription seems to be a little off, so I couldn't tell for sure.

Then I saw the chair: "Monica Bellucci"

I was supposed to meet a friend a few blocks away in about 20 minutes, but I'd be damned if I was gonna move without getting a decent look at the beauty from Malena, The Matrix Reloaded, Brotherhood of the Wolf, The Brothers Grimm, Tears of the Sun, The Passion of the Christ and Irreversible. My friend would have to wait.

The action required her to stop at the bus door, look around as if to say goodbye, and then board the bus. They did this a few times. Each time, she looked in my erection..I mean direction (down boy!) before boarding the bus. Yeah, my prescription blows, but you are not going to convince me that she was looking right at me and using me as a reference point each time.


The scene wrapped and they were going to move the camera, so Monica (yes, we're on a first name basis now) made her way with a couple of people to a nearby van 'cause it was pretty darn chilly out. As it happened, I had to go in the same direction, so for a moment, we were within about 10 feet of each other.


Yeah, I gotta say she's starting to show her age (41, apparently), especially around her eyes, but it was still a thrill to see Malena in the flesh.

Haven't seen Malena? Rent it. If you're a man with an ounce of blood running through your veins, you'll understand.


I have sampled every language, French is my favourite - fantastic language, especially to curse with. Nom de Dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d'enculé de ta mère! You see, it's like wiping your arse with silk, I love it.

It's funny how people don't realize that there are many such beautiful women in the general ordinary population. People allow themselves to be manipulated such that they are only excited and manipulate by women that are promoted by the MSM complex. If they would only look around the block they would find dozens of women equally beautiful. The only thing is they aren't wearing the pancake makeup and photo-retouches and you can actually touch their hair.
Well OK that's the end of my dropping by here. I usually comment if I read a blog..old habit.
good luck to ya.

I agree wholeheartedly with Max here (will wonders never cease?). Our daily lives are filled with beautiful women.

Of course, that doesn't mean that there aren't women on the big screen who aren't stunning. Bellucci is particularly "my type" whereas there are countless women the media parades before our eyes that I don't find the least bit compelling.

I've often described myself as an "admirer of women". I like to look at beautiful women and appreciate them for what they are - a wonder of nature. It doesn't mean I want to sleep with them or even talk to them (often the most beautiful women are the least interesting, I find), but I do appreciate nature's handiwork.

But, really, what would you say, dear women readers, if a man stopped you on the street just to tell you he thought you were beautiful? (and then continued on his way) Society might frown on that but personally I'd be thrilled if a woman did that for me. I'd take that ego boost any day.

Yes, there are lots of Belluccis on the street , guys just don't realize it because the women don't have the glamour makeup on and are not on the cover of magazines.

Think about it!! Thousands and thousands of women equally beautiful and equally talented apply for starring roles but only a few get picked and promoted. So that means there are many of each type of beautiful women..
So it just makes me laugh when i hear guys going gaga about movie stars. Why would they pay attention or care about women who wouldn't and couldn't give them the time of day when the real McDeal is all around them? Why are they allowing themselves to be manipulated and controlled by media barons. And they let these media people control their wallet as well as their heartstrings to so that they spend all their money and attention and get nothing in return.
Well I guess the answer to that is it takes personal courage and personal development to actually take some initiative to talk to real women.
and of course when you experience the excitement of relationships, beauty is not so important, you begin to look for interaction rather than image.
Yes, I know it is tough and difficult, but remember:
The world belongs to the Brave.
He who dares , wins.
