There was a white horse, on a quiet winter morning when snow covered the streets gently and was not deep, and the sky was swept with vibrant stars, except in the east, where dawn was beginning in a light blue flood. The air was motionless, but would soon start to move as the sun came up and winds from Canada came charging down the Hudson…–Mark Helprin.

MAORI SPORTS ALL BLACKS 2012, CREATING 200,000 JOBS & 5 PEOPLE WE’RE READING – SUNDAY 9.9.12

I just tuned into the Marae Investigates TV program. Willie Jackson and Scotty Morrison were discussing the NZ All Blacks rugby football team. Liam Messam and Piri Weepu were the shizzle. Hosea Gear should have played better. And the New Zealand Maori All Blacks team when they go on tour, should really be playing England and Wales to help these two teams get up to speed with their level of international rugby. Not a bad idea at all! There’s a lot of talk too on the Q+A program about jobs creation, water’s economic profits distribution flows and water’s conservation, and the NZ government still flogging the horse of selling the New Zealand citizens’ owned assets program.

In regards to jobs, I often wonder how we can create more without stripping the landscape so much. Renewable flows as products are more sustainable (like dairy as grass that makes milk regrows itself, whereas coal does not for example) to develop. Of course we need a blend of non-renewable exports and renewable exports leaving NZ, right at this time. We’re in the red as a nation and need to get out of that quagmire of vampiric debt. The Maori All Blacks on tour should help show England, Wales and rugby fans of the world, the creative strength of Maori in creating play. These are the skills also needed to grow an economy from a gridlocked position, into one that is thriving, through decreasing debt by creating more.

Talk is cheap. Promises are mirages without delivery. Promises not delivered on are not as real as an awa (a river) before us. (more…)

TROY DAVIS MIDNIGHT HOUR – TEN BLOG POSTS WE’RE READING ONLINE – 21.9.11

Having a blog, it’s always fascinating to see what we’re all reading. Here’s ten blog posts you are. Enjoy our selections today. First up though, in the USA the story about  Troy Davis has all of America up in arms today. HuffPo’s link says: “Highly Controversial Execution Temporarily Delayed As Georgia Officials Await Decision From U.S. Supreme Court.” Update – Sadly, Davis -who maintained his innocence until the end (he did not have a gun), received no intervention on his case. The AP have his story, here.

9. IS SYDNEY AUSTRALIA, AN OVERCROWDED ANGRY CITY?

10. ANNE FRANKS DIARY IS TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS AS A GRAPHIC NOVEL

Biz thought for today: New Zealand farmer’s milk is being used to further BigPharma sales distribution networks. Although that is semi funny, in a cheesy, punny Kiwi, rural bretheren, agricultural kind of way, the message is… that we must F as Ph these days.

SIX THINGS AND POLYNESIAN SUPER HEROES CHILDRENS BOOK IDEAS – HOLLYWOOD – 3.30.11

I was thinking about writing a story, a children’s book about every Libyan kid that’s ever had a dream, felt excluded without twitter access, who wanted to belong on an iPhone, or go to a Starbucks, and hoped that one day they could do what they loved and make a difference and share their Subway sandwich combos choices on Facebook.”–but you know… NATO can write that one. :)

Instead I think that maybe the world needs to see a Polynesian super heroes children’s book series as a refreshing alternative. I mean no one on the planet has done a book series like this one, ever. It’s called a new idea. I think Libya’s kids would love it as well. The first book would see the young superheroes go to Libya, then Japan, China, then New York, then Africa, then Australia in subsequent books of the series.

It would be amazing what adventures they would get up to on their travels as super friends. Maybe I should just give the idea to a thirteen year-old artist instead –that would be even more amazing!

Here’s six things you’re loving right now in Hollywood and sharing via social media.

1. Reblle fleur ink by Rihanna

2. Ms. Palicki gets a big tick from me in her new job

3. Super Kōhatu Maori humor

4. Australia is wired tightly to IT like few other nations are

5. Facebook producing – The Winklevoss twins are lol!

6. Family humor – Tattoos, Amber Portwood & baby Leah

Bonus Music linkNesian Mystik – Polynsian’s greatest boy band rocks out

CHOPPERS ABOVE WEST HOLLYWOOD SKIES, A BOMB HOT AIR BALLON ADVERTISEMENT SAYS “GOOD YEAR” – 3.29.11

Because eagles who can wrangle are US on American roads here’s three views of Hollywood skies today. The military are present with choppers flying over head. Busy.

And Good Year hires a hot air balloon in the shape of a bomb (why?!), above Hollywood with a message that it’s time to re-tyre one’s car.

I don’t know about you, but seeing a bomb above California as a marketing tool for economic development of a worldwide corporation based on rubber and steel products, is just a tad bit creepy. Jk.Good Year’s effort to be present and send their company message is creative though. Points for that! Everyone’s looking.

Here’s three views at sunset in West Hollywood. Hollywood is a city where every level of one’s senses is invaded. Look at these pics of the skyline in this Hollywood minute – there’s a lot happening above.

Five things we’re sharing in the hood on social media right now are:

1. Industry Town news – 1.6.11

2. Phoenix Phenom is a music artist – buffeting storms of her young progress

3. Kris Fa’afoiLady Gardiner are good people serving well

4. Humor – red neck wedding photos keep the USA amused

5. Pippa Middleton is on a diet for two more days

Alright car owners in California – help Good Year out! Rubber retreading is upon us. Peace!


In keeping with Good Year’s sense of humor, here are the names of their stars they offer California in this rather quirky snap shot moment. Products are -

  • Assurance® Fuel Max®
  • Assurance® TripleTred
  • Assurance® ComforTred® (more…)

RIMA IS THE MAORI WORD FOR THE No. 5 – HOLLYWOOD – 3.28.11 @ 5.45pm

[J]ust as doctors and lawyers, teachers and military officers, judges and the police are expected to set aside their own politics in the performance of their duties, so are our employees.

This does not mean — as one writer recently scoffed — that we “poll people at both extremes of any issue, then paint a line down the middle and point to it as reality.”–Media Bistro website are a big fan of New York’s South African editor, Bill Keller‘s rather punchy writing of late. Go here for their pithy Keller story.

Seriously though, The New York Times was so anorexic-like thin on Saturday, the paper obviously needs a hand. Buy it. Support this man.

1. Frank McCourt‘s Angela’s Ashes book cover pic.

2. Danielle Spencer & Russell Crowe buy ‘Te Puke’ – a home in Rose Bay

3. Sacha Baron Cohen has done some outrageous film roles for laughs

4. Mary Perry Hudson just made her daughter more interesting

5. Reese Witherspoon gets hitched in Ojai
