Keep calm trick the heat tees: What everyone in hot climate nations knows… is… to stay calm, if you have hot spicy food on a hot day… then you don’t notice the temperature after that as much. funny that.
Here’s a tee that expresses that humor.

Made in the USA TV. “It’s nice to be back.” Tres dramatic.
In Supermodels of Aotearoaland in black gumboots starring as Mother Bird:
It did happen overnight.
Ditching the high heels for gumboots, Rachel Hunter spent a night creeping through the bush to bring a kiwi egg to Kiwi Encounter.
The New Zealand’s Got Talent judge spent half of Monday night foraging around in Maungataniwha Forest waiting for the opportunity to take a kiwi egg from its nest to Rotorua for incubation.
Hunter, who is the patron of Forest Lifeforce Restoration Trust, said although it feels “mean” sometimes to take the eggs from their parents’ nest, there was a 95 per cent chance it wouldn’t survive in the wild.
They were “really fortunate” the father got off the egg early at night, around 10.30pm, she said. (more…)
AN UNEXPECTED BRIEFING – SIR PETER JACKSON GETS HIS HOBBIT FREAK ON FOR AIR NEW ZEALAND’S FUNNY MARKETING CAMPAIGN
Hobbit TVCs: Air New Zealand’s new marketing campaign is funny. It involves Sir Peter Jackson getting his Hobbit freak on to flog the national airline. Creative funny. Too “precious” zany Pakeha-funny, comedy TV.

Yet, America can’t go pretending China is ‘the enemy’ of foreign policy as it often does, unless more jobs are created in the USA and green energy is introduced into the USA’s economic mix more to show American financial independance from true creativity of sustainable job growth.
At a trilllion dollar deficit each year over the last four years, American-made (hopefully) chopsticks for the Oval Office’s staff lunches is looking more like the trend from America and for most average American families.
Most Americans have to live on the cheap, (gas and electricity is so expensive and all!) so Chinese food gives a view of an affordable diet in the USA.
Maybe America can even eat their Pizza Hutt or Dominos pepperoni pizza (or choritzo polish pizza of Wisconsin), with chopsticks too instead of getting one’s Americano mits greasy over one’s dinner’s dairy products? Geez! :)
We have lots of pine trees in New Zealand on our arable lands. Shall we send the USA some?
I am referring to (of course): China calls on U.S., Japan to sort their economy’s current structure.
And also, the fun, light-hearted Obama-Romney press of – Pizza Hutt eats humble pie after debate PR stunt – with the funny Paul Ryan politico-bio reference from Obama-Romney on pizza choices.–USA Today. The truth is, Hawaiian pizza is big in the USA. Standard fare.
In NZ we’re kinda being fed Jake Tapper ABC Obama-Romney news on TV. All very serious, full of middle class, good American peoples moaning their soda-pop slurpy-sipping, faces off in tougher times. The look is what Obama-Romney have to put up with being the wealthy’s buffer between rich and poor. A tough gig to do to cam, yet both do it so well.

Hollywood humor via comedy movie history: Jackie Chan and Chris Rock do a bar scene fight, Rush Hour movie scenes. Too freaking funny!
Meanwhile Chan is doing so well in China, he’s doing some good: Superstar Jackie Chan donates film to Olympic stadium, Beijing China. Chris is on twitter. Rock’s last tweet: “Funny people hanging out“.
Fun humor from US entertainers, as in … Ya’ll have a lovely day. :)
Indeed, China and the USA are integrating more and more, without letting on too much that it is happening to other trading nations. And pizza exports into China would be huge if US even knew how to create again. NZ has got the best cheese if the USA wants to provide the grain for a China pizza roll out. It would be a total blitz – a good story.

Movie News: Voxy reports: “Two Little Boys, the New Zealand-made comedy starring Flight of the Conchords‘ Bret McKenzie, has opened to number one spot at the box office ahead of blockbuster Madagascar 3.
Producer Vicky Pope said it was no mean feat for a New Zealand film.
“We’re absolutely thrilled the film has opened at number one. The story has everything – a crazy road trip, a love story, wild animals and even a bit of attempted murder.” More@LocalDistinctions.
Gruesome yet congratulations. Must See.

In California at this nanosecond on the Comedy Circuit, Butch Bradley is doing the rounds as rising talent. Thousands of Americans wing it across the 50 States of the USA to work the comedy club venues on the Sunset Strip, West Hollywood. Butch is interesting as he was raised by a single-parent mother in the USA. Like all comedians hoping to make it, Bradley’s aim is to make it onto one or two Late Night Talk Shows or a Hollywood comedy movie.
If stand up comics like Bradley do – the rest is the stuff that world famous, Hollywood comedians are made of. It happened for comic actors like Scottish-American talk show host, Craig Ferguson as it also did for Mr Chris Rock.
Chris is featured in the YouTube video clip below, talking about that alarming topic in the USA right now – Gun Control.
Love it that Chris Rock tried!

For 80 minutes only, I would forgive Ella all of her one sins, for having the right attitude for that one game in that moment and that brief context of sport. She would just be the right person to sit with at rugby. Rugby league… Ella is just as full on supportive. Loud during sport!
Today, Ella is zooming us into our future (after years of good personal growth as a person).
Ella Henry has graduated with her doctorate in Maori Development – an arena where all New Zealand citizens will appreciate her vision in the field. The Ask Your Aunty talk show TV host, comic actor, breast cancer screening advocate, political commentator and good sort, looks swell wearing her doctorate cap hat. And in Maori Development too. So clever.
Of the hard earned honor, Henry humbly says:
"I was the first person in my family to go to university, let alone graduate. I was the first person in my family not to work at a factory. This is for them."
Well said: And a feisty Kiwi ka pai to you Dr Ella Henry. Congratulations. :)
As well as a PhD, Ella Henry has a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Anthropology and a Masters of Commerce. Not a bad effort at all. Tumeke awesome. She inspires a pile of brainy books asap and reading websites like FT.Com and WSJ and Forbes key skill sets of their brightest stars, to enhance business accumen and creative business components gathering for mega-remixing Kiwi fierce entrepreneur styles. So proud of Dr Ella!

Good news for Banksy today (aka MP John Banks). Mr Banks is not guilty for not declaring donations for election campaigns. The saga had involved being choppered to Kim Dotcom‘s private parties while Mr Banks and Amanda Banks got their chardonnay on, on their fundraising trips.
There are many people who say that Mr Banks could have done more for social services in many communities of New Zealand in his terms of office. However, as he has matured, he has the opportunity to change that first impression that some have of him. I only remember him as doing the art of suppressed quippy fun.
As a child, Mr Banks was the MP of my city. His story of growing up with Maori in an orphanage swayed a nation once. I remember him walking into the Whangarei Intermediate School hall, where he did a Scottish jig like a magical Morris dancer, a piped-piper court jester and a larger than life character in a very serious setting (my dad’s church that was just starting out). As a lawyer, he’d learned to do this in court and after hours. How he broke all the conventions in his suit and tie and didn’t give a flying rip what people thought about him with social conventions and restrictions brought laughter, smiles, joy to my siblings and all of the people in the hall. He always had pizazz.
He finished the Celtic jig dance all off with requesting that the church sing Down By The River Side so loud while he continued to dance up a storm. He was like a hearty lively pub.
With a sold out tour, New Zealand’s favorite comedy duo, Oscar winner Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement are in demand. The Flight of The Conchords’ tour has an extended run. Video footage of the lads latest interview with Mark Sainsbury, coming soon.

As laughter is always the best medicine. Here’s to a merry heart.
The Sunday current affairs TV show, featured an interview with British comic, Lenny Henry, having a chat.
The trailblazing stand up comic, started out in stand up as a youngster on a dance floor of a ship.
37 years later and a CBE under his belt for his trouble, Henry talks of “interrupting Rolf Harris” during that long and creepy nursery rhyme performance, no one in New Zealand understood humanely, and on being a fan of Flight of The Conchords humor and live music shows too.
Cradle To Rave is Lenny’s next show, that he’s even bringing down under to Aotearoa, NZ. EventFinder shares:
“Touring to Auckland and Wellington in June 2012, Cradle to Rave is Henry’s most personal show yet, offering a hilarious and touching insight into a man to whom music matters a little too much. From growing up thinking Elvis was a relative as there were so many pictures of him in the house, to missing a cue during his acclaimed theatrical debut as Othello because he was listening to hip hop, Cradle to Rave sets Henry’s family, first loves and fame against a musical backdrop – a comic cabaret voyage through his life told via its eclectic soundtrack.

In what’s no.1 at the box office news? ‘LOS ANGELES — The ensemble comedy “Think Like a Man” based on a best-selling self-help book by Steve Harvey, opened as the weekend’s top box-office draw with $33.6 million. Debuting at No. 2 was the romantic drama “The Lucky One” with $22.5 million.’
Think Like A Man is a movie that would never debut at no.1 at New Zealand’s box office. Congratulations to the cast and crew of this film. :)

Nine years on hiatus, then a $9.2 million box office opening weekend in North America, on a film franchises return?
Not bad at all for the cast of American Reunion. Quirky staying power.
