Don’t read if at work. “God just kinda knows.”
I think 20 is the new 20. 40 has just gotten racyer. 40 is 40.
We shouldn’t take away young people’s turn. :)
Diaz’s Euro-Latina beauty still on show from the UK magazine’s cover spot. Not taking herself at all seriously (Diaz’s charm trait), she is still LA’s sexiest comedian for sure!

Ted makes cool music videos for cute singer songwriters like Laurel Brauns who wrote that Space Cowboy folksy ballad song, The Girl with Kaleidoscope Eyes. It’s a song that William Borucki of NASA most probably listens too when discovering twin planets through his Kepler telescope. Check out Laurel & Ted’s collaborative work using a Kessler Crane, right here. The music video was shot at Dillon Falls in Portland.
From Ted, I have learned interesting filmmaking tips. Advertising is 99% of filmmaking is one.
[Rightbackatchu buddy! Thnx man!]
… Gosh, I just felt a bit like the NZ Consulate in Brentwood, doing this post for Oregon Kiwis. Too funny!
Just to prove Tim’s point about filmmaking being about advertising, if you like Laurel’s music, why not buy a hard copy of House of Snow by Laurel Brauns here. Music from authentic artists like Brauns isn’t made for free, you know.

When I think of pepper in California, I think of the grove of pepper trees that line the hill, on the way up to the Getty Museum. Pepper is synonymous with a heightening of intelligence in a California location where the best artists work in the world, greets you past the pepper trees.
However today, California reacts to UCLA giving consent to the LAPD to pepper spray Occupy Protesters. For the news – California university to investigate police use of pepper spray. Click on link.
The West Australian is also running footage of the incident here. This photograph that occurred in Portland, Oregan on Thursday, has become an inconic image, in the fight against inequality of the 99% over the 1%. Randy L. Rasmussen, The Oregonian.
Brutal! So, the police are getting sued in these two states, most probably.

Here’s a story about a spinal doctor using patients and doing mock surgeries, to make bank. Good, bad? Innocent? What about the patients one must ask? in this story of potential medical malpractice.
The story talks about one person (Ronald Johnson) having to have a spinal surgery not twice but at least six times from this one doctor (Dr. Vishal James Makker). Mr Makker is just as bad (perhaps) as computer companies who design computers to expire after a certain date, so consumers have to buy a new one from them. That’s the same thing as this story, when you think about it.
Anyway Tom McGinty and John Carreyrou allegedly wrote this story of malpractice via Portland, Oregon for the WSJ today.
I hear the LA Spine Institute of California in Santa Monica are good at fixing backs. Tom Hanks is a fan. Like they’re legit practitioners of good spinal health for their clients here in L.A. In particular, advanced stem cell research is what they excel at for clients who can afford them for a stronger spine.
Meanwhile Japan continues to inspire, navigating a way through tragedy and revealing to us all as our teachers what happens when we don’t take care of nuclear energy. Even fish in our oceans and sea are not safe.

I am posting this letter penned by Lorri Lokey to enhance the potential of our Omaha factor today via Hollywood in an effort to inspire us all to be smart and kind people. More. Peace! [Omaha = of abundance in Te Reo Rangatira, The Language of Chiefs of Aotearoa New Zealand].
Lokey was born on March 27, 1927 and is an American biz person who is also a native of Portland, Orean who founded company Business Wire in 1961. So far, Lorri has donated $400 million to charities, mainly benefitting schools. What a guy! Lorri now lives in San Francisco, California.
He writes in a letter to Warren Buffet: “Born in 1927 I remember vividly the worst of the depression years in terms of how they affected my family—1933 and 1937 especially. The depression taught me the value of money, and my mother gave me a lesson around 1937 I never forgot.
She asked me to run down to the store and get a loaf of bread. I did and charged it as usual. When I got home and gave it to her, she started at me in disbelief. “Dummy!” she said. “You bought the small nine-cent size. Don’t you know you get half again more for 11 cents?” From that I learned the lesson of percentages.
But a bigger lesson grew from that experience. I began to realize the importance of money consists of buying what is worth the price. As I grew into adult years, I passed over things most people might grab because I didn’t think the price justified the value. For decades I have applied that to hotels, plane fares, restaurants, clothes, hard goods. I drive a hybrid and fly coach, upgrading only with points, not money. I have only three luxuries: My Atherton, CA., home, a San Francisco luxury apartment 600 feet above sea level and a luxurious home on Pineapple Hill in Kapalua, Maui. All will end up in my foundation where three other homes are right now awaiting sale.
