Kristen Stewart’s December statement: “I apologize to everyone for making them so angry,” the typically press-shy, highest ranked women at the box office 2012, tells Newsweek. “It was not my intention.”
Then the star added later in the interview: Stewart, 22, who has been the subject of both vitriolic criticism and tremendous support from fans, adds, “It’s not a terrible thing if you’re either loved or hated.” (more…)

There is nothing more powerful than ideas whose time has come, filmed on landscapes that are resources rich. ImagiNATIVE writers are the world's first architects of a future new world and new frontier.
–The way of global film sales marketing patterns observed over a few years now.
The pen is mightier than the sword.
–Winston Churchill as a writer, storyteller, peace maker and boozy warrior leader.
Developing a sustainable film industry in New Zealand really comes down to investing in New Zealand writers more and fostering relationships with the world’s best screenwriters too. It is vital that New Zealand encourages writers, as writers become the billionaires after all the effort has gone into producing successful film franchises. We need some Maori billionaires in New Zealand. Maybe some could write their way into the history books invisaging a cinematic light to project the new way.
We must write films from New Zealand, as if we don’t other people’s written ideas of the South Pacific, will be written about our territory. So, it makes sense to always be writing our own version of the world and attaching our definitions and meanings of landscape of the South Pacific to our own words and ideas in our films. We can write futuristic films, yet the messages in them attached to our landscapes have a resonance all over the world for the good.
We have the locations and enough filmmaking capability now in New Zealand. We just need better scripts, film franchise ideas created in New Zealand and a belief in fast tracking screen-writers to a global level of writing ability. Film crews travel (actors included) to where whoever has the best ideas - to collaborate on – film projects of significance.
New Zealand is soon to become that place even more so, then we have been already on some major film projects.
So what kinds of writers could happen in New Zealand? As a precursor to Mitt Romney‘s rise in politics as a star figure for the US, novelist Stephenie Meyer was a Mormon housewife of Arizona, who mimicked the UK’s JK Rowlings star template as a novelist.
Meyer’s story as a humble writer is one of a stand out success for relativiely new billionaires. Meyer’s novel ideas, even created a brand new studio to make her novels into films. It was then aquired by Lionsgate to import a strong youth audience following into Lionsgate’s entertainment brand.
The young actors cast in Meyer’s films now lead California’s box office (Kristen Stewart being one). JK of course, mimicked Brit authors like C.S Lewis and JRR Tolkien to find her own voice as a single parent writer. Magic was JK’s theme of children learning at school. Meyer’s was a voice of fantasy, romance, angst – youth under threat. Meyer’s creative literary bent, was a huge hit.
What this tells us: Perhaps we need to invest in single parents and-or Kiwi housewives more. (more…)
There is only one Brooke Fraser, a uniquely-souled artist. There is only one Kristen Stewart, born and raised into a hard working, film crew family of California. A young lady, whose every quirks and turns of angst, are played out in the public and carry the box office of Los Angeles on her young shoulders.
Finally, there was also only one Jack Kerouac, a free-form literary artist, not afraid to break all the rules, splash his words across a page in a way that was like a liteary x-ray of science and creation fused together when creation is made.
Without chaos, there is no new life. In a world established on order, Kerouac embraced chaos. He was a misfit of the page, yet his art mirroring rare artists like The Beatles music songwriting trajectory, Jackson Pollack breaking art’s rules too, Kerouac and his contemporaries changed consciousness.
Their effect as artists would also open up new frontiers and create new economies and ways of percieving the great gift we should all treasure, life’s fun flow.
So, here’s a piece of Fraser, Stewart, Kerouac in this one post.

On Sunset & La Brea, all the beautiful, crazy Hollywood kids wanna do, is have some fun in the sun at Malibu by day. At night, we hit the strip, showing off the beach tan, at the clubs sippin on bub with Hermantown dj-spun fans. On the way home, a pit stop at In N' Out, for burger Cali smiles. Singing The Go Go's, We Got The Beat home grown tunes, in the convertable cues. Like sister Suzie K taught me on Day One, I still get mine, all animal styles huge, with my fresh pressed potato fries. A double double with cheese, to this day right, and extra ketchup please. In the morning, it's Starbucks on Melrose, for a total change of funky visual scene. Of course we were in our thirties, still being crazy Hollywood kids.

A busy girl, Stewart’s Twilight co-stars promo-ed the new trailer for Lionsgate-Summit’s final film at the MTV Video Music Awards on the other side of the country. I love the fact Stewart is showing some good taste wearing a Lebanese designer’s fashion creation.
Such a California fashion tradition of Hollywood’s leading lights past, to do so.

Set to the kind of jazzy, percussive music that gave the Beat Generation its name, the preview of Kristen Stewart‘s brand new Jack Kerouac homage film offers no dialogue. Kerouac’s writings instead star in the opening moving clip, indicating an appreciation of literature for a younger generation still to learn of who this man was as an American auteur of young adults culture and art.
In New Zealand at Auckland City, I studied his writings at college as a freshman in poetry class. Hollywood Reporter has more.
K-Stew is looking pretty gorgey in this movie still. Kirsten Dunst also stars as does Viggo Mortensen as Old Bull Lee. Full cast list @IMDB.

Kristen Stewart‘s outrageous press. Talk of rambling apologies, a moving van, hiffing stuff out of a Hollywood Hills home. Read it all at E!. And as a side note: Eric Dane is said to be moving on too in TV La La-Land medical dramas. Too funny!

Funny TV today was Fifty Shades of Grey readings from four of our broadcasters of the Breakfast Show on TV in New Zealand.
You’d have to say, that in their own demure way, that when they read ‘mummy porn’ it’s their sincerity in those Kiwi accents that definitely defines the style of ”Kiwi sexy” when reading erotic literature.
[So much more fun, than Markets Watch].

When Harry Met Sally the film for single adults about faking an orgasm as comedy, and its writer, who penned When Harry Met Sally around email coms invention – once inspired the world about dating and romance. Her name wasNorah Ephron.
The New York Times, takes the time today to honor a thinker.Charles McGrathbrings the report:
“Nora Ephron, an essayist and humorist in the Dorothy Parker mold (only smarter and funnier, some said) who became one of her era’s most successful screenwriters and filmmakers, making romantic comedy hits like “Sleepless in Seattle” and “When Harry Met Sally,” died Tuesday night in Manhattan. She was 71.”
The paper adds: “The cause was pneumonia brought on by acute myeloid leukemia, her son Jacob Bernstein said.
In a commencement address she delivered in 1996 at Wellesley College, her alma mater, Ms. Ephron recalled that women of her generation weren’t expected to do much of anything. But she wound up having several careers, all of them successfully and many of them simultaneously.”
She’s an example of how women are often so much more capable and smarter than us dumb blokes, surviving on much less credit, thus being way more efficient and effective in many societies as our unsung heroes of the world.
If you’re a Sleepless in Seattle fan, more at the screenwriter’s tap.
[Thank you for the idea of romantic possibilities with much humor].

Norah died the day after Facebook announced they’ve appointed their first female director to their board to address the gender inequality in their company’s management structure. Facebook has 600 million people on their “books,” with the most of these being women.

In the new Arizona House Bill 2549, proposed legislation that would make it unlawful for anyone to post messages “with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend,” passed both the House and Senate in nearly unanimous votes last week. The bill is reportedly being tinkered with by legislators before being passed to Gov. Jan Brewer.
Bill co-author, Chad Campbell somone said: “There was no intention to trample on the First Amendment. We still believe that it wouldn’t do so, that we as a state legislature can’t override the First Amendment. But let me just say if there are some concerns, we have time to fix it and we’re more than willing to fix it.”
How does Arizona feel about this law? Good, bad, ugly? Needed or not?
Arizona’s most famous person, author Stephenie Meyer wouldn’t be the success she is today, had it not been for people commenting on blogs, websites blah blah blah that helped make her vision created in Arizona for audiences worldwide, become more well known and such a hit not only for Arizona but the USA. That’s just one example to note here. Then again, if you’ve ever read many US chat threads, they are often full of so much venom as they’re penned by a bunch of haters – you’d never want to visit the US -so perhaps this law is called for?!
