GOOGLE’S POLITICAL SPIN MACHINE TIES HOLD UP, CORPORATE ENTITIES LATCHING ON & WHAT INDIA & CHINA SEE OF HORIWOOD WEBSITE VIA BAIDU.COM
Fame happens when Google works with politicians & the world’s bankers: Here’s a news story about rewards of that system for one online company. I like them as if it wasn’t for Google, I’d have to learn Chinese (eg: Cantonese + Mandarin] and Hindi to use Baidu.Com instead, like a lot of the world who search online do daily.
Back to Google: Here’s an I.T story: ‘It’s called capitalism’: Google on tax: Google avoids having to pay billions in tax and the internet giant’s chairman is “proud” of it.
Back to What India & China see of Horiwood website:
According to Baidu, my online ‘creative persona’ via Horiwood website across the 21.000+ blog posts created in this site’s web content, the website is closely linked to these corporate entitities and names: (more…)

As there are only two types of people in the world… the lovers and the haters…. here’s a fun news story from one of the USA’s brightest stars.
Momtrepreneur, multi-millionaire, mechandizing mogul, Britney Spears is having a birthday today.
The USA celebrates Britney’s birthday big time each year. This year, Pop Sugar shares a few of the pop stars song lyrics, through the years, that have fuelled the USA culturally for almost twenty years. There are few veterans in show biz with appeal of Spears in USA.
Some of the song lyrics being sung today in USA hoods right now from Brit Brit’s pop archives are:
“The reason I breathe is you.”–Hit Me Baby One More, when launching the USA into the internet age.
“But no way, I’m ever gonna fall for you. Never you baby.”–Womanizer, on reducing those fatal attractions, you just know are plain bad.
“We can get down. Like there’s no one around. We keep on rockin. We keep on rockin.”–Gimme More, on ensuring the USA stays sexy. (more…)
Hey yo Turn it up and go turn it down Here we go we go shake it Cause everywhere we go we Bring the action I wanna scream and shout and let it all out And scream and shout and let it out Cause I was feeling down and now feel better It goes on and on and on and on When your hear us in the club You gotta...
JESSICA SIMPSON 47th MOST VOTED STAR 2012 – WORKING MOTHER, FASHION MERCHANT DISTRIBUTOR, CELEBRITY MC, WALKING REALITY TV SHOW, OCCASIONAL TEXAN-CALIFORNIA SINGER
Jessica Simpson is the 47th most voted star of 2012. Once a reverend’s daughter, her father became manager moving her family from Texas to California. The Simpson’s cartoon show was a big hit, so the family had everything to gain from the move.
A career as a singer got Jess’ vivacious talent noticed, before reality TV shows (and coasting off Britney Spears‘ star template too) allowed Jess to gain a profile in the US that few other people in music can claim as their own. Her art of being marketed as a product, taught her how to market merchandise well across the 50 States of the USA. (more…)
Sarah Shahi clocks in at no.50 of the most voted stars of 2012.
Born Aahoo Jahansouz, the actress who plays the character Kate Reed in TV drama Fairly Legal, began life in show biz as an NFL cheerleader athlete for the Dallas Cowboys.
Her father is Abbas Shahi, an Iranian, and her mother Mahmonir is Spanish.
Her father’s family exited their homeland two years before the Iranian Revolution.
Her name, Aahoo (آهو), means gazelle in Persian. This is Beyonce‘s middle name.
From her life we see: a cross-cultural multi-lingual artist who raises her children in English, Farsi (Persian) and Spanish.
She is also an oil activist for the environment, pointing out how Island coastal dwelling people are not safe when oil thirst in the world is so rife.
In November 2012, after two seasons, Shahi’s show Fairly Legal ended. She is now looking for work. Robert Altman discovered her in Texas and said she should move to Hollywood. She is married to actor Steve Howey.
Online she rates steadily as America’s guilty pleasure of sexy homegrown US-fusion.
Similar to Kim Kardashian‘s appeal, Shahi’s bikini pics as an American exotic get her noticed.
What a beautiful person.
Her message of peace and tolerance in the world is empowering for Mid-East women.
Sarah Shahi’s cross-cultural capabilities are outstanding in a very humble way as an entertainer and ambassador of the USA. She is industrious and also a symbol of World Peace and tolerance in the USA. Fascinating.

"I am whatever you say I am, if I wasn't then why would I say I am."--Marshall Mathers III.
Song lyrics that perhaps best describe politicians heading into election 2012 USA’s vote and also Uncle Sam’s American identity lens, at this moment too in the USA.
Eminem was so wise in defining the art of American celebrity as a rapper. In these two lines is Uncle Sam. American ethos of celebrity, right there.
The artists featured song track of choice, on his website is this one: Eminem – Love The Way You Lie (Live) ft. Rihanna at V-Festival (UK). A bit of a rap sting. Take a listen.

She was a relatively unknown talent who married a Hollywood heartthrob. For ten years they were a staple power couple who drove Hollywood tabloids and the box office’s credibility.
What happens when you leave your star maker, spouse and best Hollywood friend?
Nicole Kidman‘s Sydney to Hollywood story is the stuff that Hollywood movies will be made of. Nicole finally opens up about the Tom Cruise break up.
MSN News reports: Nicole Kidman has spoken candidly about battling depression in the wake of her divorce from Tom Cruise in 2001 via Who Magazine.
Kidman, 45, says she did struggle after the breakdown of her 10-year marriage to the Hollywood star.
“I got married really fast and really young,” Nicole revealed. But I don’t regret that because it got me [adopted children] Bella and Connor and I did have a fantastic marriage for a long period.
“Then when it didn’t work out I had to really dig deep and find my way through depression. I have no regrets about all of it. It was all part of growing up.”
Nicole elaborated on her personal turmoil following the highly public split. “There were times following [the divorce] when I thought, ‘Wow, this is the loneliest, loneliest existence,’” she told Who.

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…)

GOV. JERRY BROWN GIVES CERTAINTY TO CALIFORNIA’S FILMMAKING & TV PRODUCTION COMMUNITIES WITH JOB CREATION ASSURANCE FUNDING SIGNED INTO LEGISLATION
One of the USA’s most powerful tools in creating the image of a super power rhetoric, is the film and television industries non-stop talent competition that creates, sources and finds the most credible oracles for America, in the furtherance of the American star system of talent spinning. Here’s a story about that as well as being about architectural employment planning for a region’s people, youth into jobs created by legislation assurance.
Why is it important? The move demonstrating wise leadership, helps give certainty to a region. People can then plan and relax into a real life with such a move being sounded from a true leader.
News from Sacramento where California Gov. Jerry Brown works from is said to be creating some degree of further certainty for the employment market of California’s filmmaking communities.
The state has designed a program, that seeks to stem runaway production from California. Each year $100 million will be invested by way of funding to 2017, as it (apparently) the plan has sought to do since 2009.
Now signed into law, the plan seeks to keep production within California, at least til July 1, 2017. The bill authored in the Assembly by Felipe Fuentes and pushed in the state Senate by Ron Calderon continues an annual outlay of $100 million a year to subsidize productions that are made in the state, with a special bonus for those TV series that return from out of state.
“By creating tens of thousands of jobs and pumping billions into our economy, the film and television tax credit program has truly been a statewide economic stimulus package,” said Fuentes. (more…)
True Kiwi facts, Grey Lyn, Auckland City – New Zealand: Once upon a time a humble Samoan lad was born in Hayward, California. He and his family moved around a lot in his early years. He played football for the University of Miami and wanted to study to be a criminologist. The world called him to wrestle instead.
He followed in his dad’s footsteps. It took a while to get going as an entertainer in his own right, then Hollywood called him to act in movies.
His name is Dwayne Johnson, the rest is history unfolding and can be seen on the silver screen.

TIM TEBOW’S VOGUE “ROLL THE STONE AWAY” FASHION NOD – SEPTEMBER 20th 2012 – FARM FOOTBALL JETS PHOTO SHOOT
The things sports stars have to do, to save their country and kick start a sports season. Tim Tebow is a good study on that. It’s all about getting over drought fears and putting an emphasis on how football can reassure agricultural product to the USA, going by this one photoshoot’s theme to avoid calcium deficiency in twenty-years time global planning. That’s the vibe from this shoot with a tractor tyre as the star prop. Geez!
Indeed, the number 1 American search term fed this blog’s way today is “Tim Tebow Vogue”. I like the official NFL take on that, which is just about sports apparel. Watch video link below. So cheesy American. Gotta laugh.
For readers of a Hollywood website though, that distinctively, this blog is first and foremost, sports comes into play when it encompasses the wider entertinament view. I worked hard to get my audience, living in the US and NZ pioneering an Am-Kiwi blended blog.
Sports stars add to the audience mix. Tim Tebow is one of the stars who do. When he does press off the football field, Tim is an artist. So, what’s he doing?
What US sports Media cover the story?
