Retro pop cultural fushion observes: An economy can be like a vessel that you create. With the vessel’s creation, you concurrently create the right culture, that goes with that vessel. When the culture is right, wow – good stuff happens.
Someone who did this well once was Gwen Stefani of Orange County, CA. Stefani hoped to reinvent from a grunge band image into a solo pop artist. A hip hop collaboration helped her do this. Stylistically, the artist flirted with the notion of Parisian couture while fusing it together with cultural influences of the Harajuku District‘s street fashion style and attitude of Tokyo, Japan?
It was such a winning cultural combo for trendsetting pop music markets appeal, that it is almost a good deal to replay that hit again as a teaching lession into cultural fusion aesthetics.
Harayuku Girls was the musical song that really summed up that vibe and idea. However, here’s the music video to What You Waiting For.

BRONAGH KEY HITS UP No.10 FOR DINNER & JOHN KEY MEETS MERV KING & TALKS CHURCH REBUILDS WITH THE QUEEN
In famous traveling Kiwis news: Bronagh Key hit up No.10 for dinner in London. Her story is here.
John Keymet with The Queen to discuss how The Anglican Church in Christchurch can have a ‘new-build,’ with elements of the old cathedral incorporated into the newer version. Apparently, Christchurch residents had written to her about this topic.
Mr Key also met with banking flows architect Mervyn King (Governor of The Bank of England) while in The UK, and is in Germany learning more of how European economic impacts are affecting markets and banking flows worldwide.
The Sydney Morning Herald runs coverage today of the King visit too, reporting Mr Key saying of the Eurozone crises, ”I don’t think anyone’s actually 100 per cent sure how this plays out. [But Mr King] offered a realistic outlook for Europe’s financial future.” That story here.
Key said the Queen had been in “sparkling form” and had asked to speak to wife Bronagh and daughter Stephie, who is living in Paris. ”They had quite a long chat (about) what Stephie was up to and what she was doing.” More here.
As much of the Eurozone love cheese from New Zealand, a few of Mr Key’s gifts to the Queen, were in the shape of an iPod, but you could eat the gifts instead. Humorously, he took with him: “Key took a presentation box of Kapiti Cheeses with him to Buckingham Palace for his private audience with the Queen. It included:
“A 1kg wheel of Kapiti Kikorangi Blue Cheese, a 1kg wheel of Kapiti Aorangi Traditional Brie, a 200g Kapiti Tuteremoana Cheddar (aged up to four years) a 170g Kapiti Pakari Aged Cheddar, a 170g Kapiti Portwine Cheddar and a 170g Kapiti Pakari Smoked Cheddar.
Also in the box were items including beetroot pickle, extra virgin olive oil, quince jelly, black doris plum jam, kiwifruit chutney, feijoa chocolate and lemon mellow wine wafers.”
What a hoot!

Aster, the local television star of Aotearoa New Zealand who can turn a hessian oyster sack into a jacket that would (with the right level of investment into her talents) rival any of the best designers in Paris, wowed yesterday on local TV making a plain fitted jacket into a Channel – ‘look- alike.’
As a pioneeer of ‘industry’ on the cuff, who should be the next Karen Walker fashionista mogul of NZ (or something similar), Aster has always been… amazeballs! Like a Pearl farm of creativity floating on the waters of the South Pacific, Aster is … again, totally amazeballs!
So industrious, everyday, on a budget creating magic with her innovation. A bit of a model Kiwi in these times with her creative streak and ability to deliver magic, with no buffer – you have to say as a talented giving person… Rock on!
Aster is the hot piece on the far right with her Good Morning show TV presenters line up. No TV Presenter works harder than Aster day-in-day out. Go kid. Imma fan. The color she brings to New Zealanders each week is the stuff that creative legends are made of. Her output? Huge! Wow!
–At the moment, Aster is even whipping up some oysters on TV. Like a clean smooth place to land, Aster is just too milli-vanilli millies funny!

Also of interest is the writings of author Ernest Hemingway: The Toronto Star posted selections of Hemingway’s writings. The selections are chose from the Stars archive of columns Ernest Hemingway penned while being a staff writer during the years of 1920-24. Hemingway had also served as a foreign correspondent in Europe.
His crime reporting from prohibition-era Chicago were well read as was early bullfighting coverage. His column advising Canadians on how to live frugally in Paris is amusing in times of Eurozone crises and Global Financial Crises economic engineering.
“PARIS—Paris in the winter is rainy, cold, beautiful and cheap. It is also noisy, jostling, crowded and cheap. It is anything you want—and cheap.
The dollar, either Canadian or American, is the key to Paris. With the U.S. dollar worth twelve and a half francs and the Canadian dollar quoted at something over eleven francs, it is a very effective key.
At the present rate of exchange, a Canadian with an income of one thousand dollars a year can live comfortably and enjoyably in Paris. If exchange were normal the same Canadian would starve to death. Exchange is a wonderful thing.”
Life is unknown, both a gift and a mystery while on earth. Currencies come and go, but family and community will go on. Love these for the gifts they are in your life. Love people more than money alone. Peace!
