强悍的 Whitney 在 2007 年被《综艺》杂志评为当年 10 个最值得看的演员之一。

Money really can buy you love in China - or at least that seems to be a common belief in this increasingly materialistic country.

“Women are very dependent,” she said. “I blame them. Why can’t they work hard and buy a house together with their man? But very few women today think like that.”

她做过各种不同领域的事情。在华盛顿的剧院学表演、在常青藤大学学新闻、在 WRC 电视台当记者、打篮球、当模特......这些事情都做过一遍之后,她觉得自己应该当一个演员,于是赶紧提前毕业,大老远从美国东部跑去西部的洛杉矶,想在好莱坞发展。

“金钱人质”的作品对观者的体验或将非常直接,仿佛一记打在脸上的耳光,刺痛却震撼,在当下关税,贸易战争和财富不均的暗流涌动的经济气候之中这一主题极为贴切,在艺术世界里也好、或任何其他地方也罢。

Ms. Feng, who had failed to find a match for her apartmentless friend, said the demands that many Chinese women make on prospective mates reflected weakness, not power. Lower in status, they fear not getting what they want in life, and look to men to provide it.

Money naturally plays as important a role in the functioning of the art world as it does in any other activity in which goods and/or services are exchanged. Often the process is straightforward – art is made, it is sold – but the higher you climb in the money tree, the more slippery it becomes. No accident. If the ways in which art moves money – and vice versa – can seem opaque and elusive, these are the characteristics that help keep the art economy afloat.

L: 租的车没有坏,真把我吓一跳。原来又是我的英文有问题。 Damage 这个字很普通,大家都知道是指什么东西坏了。可你指的是为什么东西付的钱。

L: 我知道了,价钱贵就是:the damage is bad。 价钱不高,那就是: the damage is not bad. 再给我举个例子吧。

2、If we are short of cash, we can rent a house instead of buying one---there's more than one way to skin a cat.

Mary _______ to her boss by telling him often how much she admires his talents and how lucky she is working for him.

——Do you think Bill will come up on time at this evening party?(你觉得今晚的聚会比尔会准时到达吗?)

The presence of money as a subject matter and a symbol of the capitalist nature of the art world in particular in artists’works have a long history that includes pieces ranging from Rembrandt to Chardin, Picasso to Warhol.

Voters pay more attention in the fall, because Election Day is November 7th, so candidates really ___C_____ attacking opponents' policies and praising their own.

“I don’t think economic advancement and our yearning for love are mutually exclusive,” he said.

L: 你真好心,知道我买新电脑花了不少钱,所以不要我帮你付。 Michael, 没关系,我能付一点,你还要去修车,也很贵的。

I need to take a break from studying. Let's get drunk.

电视影集《X档案》有句名言:“真相就在那里。”The truth is out there.但是在哪里?就是在“那里”,只是必须要你自己去找而已!

第二波产品仍以主题中的“$”金钱符合作为设计元素,主打基础款版型,配以泼墨的文字与涂鸦或留白的方式,让你在日常的生活更容易根据自身所需进行搭配。

《破产姐妹》不用多介绍,她在里面担任编剧和制作人,联合制作人是《欲望都市》的 Michael Patrick King 。据说在见 Michael 的时候,她砸重金买了一双  Christian Louboutins ,后来她打算退回去,结果因为鞋子沾了太多汗而失败。

Many Chinese were shocked this year when a female contestant on a popular TV dating show, “If You Are the One,” announced: “I’d rather cry in a BMW than smile on a bicycle.” But others insisted that the contestant, Ma Nuo, now popularly known as “the BMW woman,” was merely expressing a social reality.

但是艺术家通常不会直接将金融工具 – 比如硬币、纸币、支票–作为不含深意的日常用品来描绘,如夏尔丹在桌上放的瓶瓶罐罐, 塞尚的苹果,毕加索的吉他一样,因为金钱往往暗示着故事。在伦博朗早期的代表作“犹大退还三十枚银币”中,银币的形象被注入了大量的含义,其含义时常是黑暗的。

M: No! You're right, shot does mean to have used a gun, but here shot means something is broken.

他说:当专家看到McCain先生在新罕普什尔州初选前民意调查中的得分上升,而且在某些调查中的得分跟Bush先生拉成平局,他们开始承认Bush先生可能并不像他们向来所说的那样必胜无疑。

M: Yes, if you hurt your knee, you can say: My knee is shot, or if you hurt your shoulder, you can say: My shoulder is shot.

Remember: you are not alone because I will always be with you!

However widespread this mercantilist spirit, not everyone thinks it is a good thing. A spate of Chinese films, plays and television shows have raised the question: What is love in an age of breakneck economic growth?

A tumultuous courtship with a wacky artist named Yihong ends up with the couple united in New York. A closing shot shows her in his arms, a diamond on her finger. The real fantasy, perhaps, is love plus money.

The new creed can be hard, as a 26-year-old cultural events organizer learned.

He must have passed the exam, because he was so happy the whole day.

The phone was not enough. Last week, she left him, citing pressure from her parents to find a richer mate.

beer是“啤酒”,draft beer是“扎啤” 生啤酒 ,就是通过过滤或者微波杀菌,而没有经过加热杀菌过程的啤酒,味道和通常的啤酒即熟啤酒没有什么差别。在啤酒里还有一种叫“黑啤”stout beer, stout原意是“粗壮的”,黑啤口味浓厚,用这个词再合适不过了。

一开始她只能在一些游戏节目里当主持人,其中最著名的一个,是 MTV 台的 Punk'd (明星大整蛊)。她在里面跟 Ashton Kutcher 带着隐藏摄像头去整蛊各种名人。

The body of work you will experience in Dollar Hostage is direct, indeed as obvious as a slap in the face, but stinging and resonant, especially appropriate to our simmering contemporary climate of tariffs, trade wars and widening wealth gaps, in the art world at least as much as anywhere.

于是在 2011 年,她一口气推出了两部自己的情景喜剧: 2 Broke Girls (破产姐妹)和 Whitney (惠特尼的烦恼) 。

M: No, the rental car is not damaged! The word damage does mean that, but damage here means the amount of money needed to pay for something.
