Chris Pine is an actor. He is from a show biz family. In Silverlake is where Chris has coffee. Silverlake is where Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston also had property, when together. Brad still has a property portfolio in Silverlake. A groovy village. It’s an artsy community consisting of latino businesses and LA artists, lots of actors and also young families. It’s very cool. Similar in New Zealand to Ponsonby? Perhaps. Pine’s latest news as a part of the Star Trek reboot franchise, with NZ’s Karl U can be read @trek news & trek web & here.

In case you missed it, the following were the hot news topics of one of the two important Maori News shows from New Zealand. In Te Reo Rangatira (the poetic and rich Language of Chiefs, 1000 years created and spoken in our land), hot topics follow:
More real yet otherworldy than a Star Trek Hollywood movie is The Volcanic activity on Whakaari: The volcanic activity can be seen and heard from the island volcano of Whakaari (White Island) prompting the warning status to be upgraded. Hinerangi Goodman spoke with the community of Whakatane today.
We mourn the disappearance of two rock climbers and an instructor of gas coast, New Plymouth: Way to young to go missing: Names released of missing trio in rock climbing accident – Police have released the names of the two students and a rock-climbing instructor who have been missing since they fell into the sea off New Plymouth’s Back Beach last night.
Fallen NZ soldiers arrive in Christchurch tonight - The bodies of Lance Corporal Pralli Durrer and Lance Corporal Rory Malone will arrive in Christchurch tonight. The soldiers were killed in Afghanistan last week. (My heart hurts for the families of the slain. War is brutal. For what purpose are NZ’s sons being taken, is more my heart on this issue. And for our military - Kia Kaha nga toa aroha me manawatu a Ngati Tumatauenga Tatou).
Thank Chrissendom Wairere Skies for the High Court some days. It really does curb the greed of a few, who think they’re above the law, when they are not. High Court rule in favour of Whakatu Inc: While the water rights issues are continuing with the tribunal, a South Island corporation has seen their decision to pursue in a breach of trust case against the Crown in the high court, ruled in their favour.
Hekia Parata, a gifted, capable and talented person has copped a rough shift on her watch as Education Minister lately. No confidence in national standards league table: The Associate Minister of Education says he doesn’t support the National Standards league tables released by the Education Minister. At this stage, 10% of NZ schools are yet to register their results so they can be updated online for public view. (more…)
True fact: Creative Maori-Kiwi kid, young Jakey Davis attends Catholic school.
He is so smart, when I’m in Jakey’s presence, my brain hurts tracking the zings that go through his thought processes at lightning Te Uira speed.
Can’t help admire his clever. Academically Jakey is definitely in the fast track. The self-described “one of the two best” in his Saturday mornings rugby team, Jake loves going to school every day. If he could go to school on the weekends too, Jakey so would. Such a Maori nerd!
New Zealand’s got smart talent rising up in Kiwi neighborhoods.

Mutch highlights lawyer Paul Raddich for The Crown and Donna Hall and veteran activist and mother of a New Zealand politician, Titewhai Harwira. Priceless].

Bromhead does his Kramer Vs Kramer cartoon art commentary today down in New Zealand with his cartoon titled: A More Interesting Split.
The diversions of US In Kiwiland over a cuppa of Chanui Pure Ceylon tea.
[... Far more fun than Kiwi families contemplating whether to get out of the house and go get their own damn sovereign breadmakers at the local Ware-Whare store!]. A homemade Weta Wheat Bread recipe is due about now from those myriads of reality TV Master Chefs - to show Kiwis how to make their own German bread to go with their cuppa too. :)
Love the cartoon.
[This photo: The Sunbeam Bakehouse Breadmaker - Noel Leeming's souped-up breadmaker version, NZ].
What this means: After Maori get water rights sorted with blindie, shall we start growing wheat in the South for the USA and other countries that get parched in summer? That’s so Bill Clinton down in Queeenstown, after Monica-gate back in the naughty presidents golfing club yarn-around-the-greens days.
Wheat n’ Wheels. [I think NZ and Iwi-Kiwis can more than do a big ag project for "Africa"peeps on our own!].
As this is not a Turners & Growers German distributed idea (at this stage), it could quite possibly be a Ngai Tahu and other Iwis distributed model - if the dry goods produce are to be “China” bound, here’s that look for baby pandas and Aussie friends afar off – growing up on Canterbury plains good grains and our shared Iwi-Kiwi wai ora in the future.

WARATAH TAOGAGA IS A TRUE BLUE “MAOBO” ORIGINAL MOZZIE STAR – FROM ABORIGINAL AUSTRALIA TO HELENSVILLE
Q. What is something New Zealand offers you that living Hollywood doesn’t?
A. Hanging out with Maori cousins like Waratah Taogaga – who is half Aboriginal from the oldest culture Australia knows, as well as being Maori (Ngati Whatua and Ngapuhi Tribes). Waratah is also blessed with Samoan lineage. She loves kapa haka (Maori cultural performance). Waratah lives in Helensville, the New Zealand PM’s designated electorate – quite happily.
Like her Maori-Polynesian momma, Eileen, Waratah’s sweet humble spirit and her respect for her elders knowledge, always makes me smile.
She’s a little bubbly star, just trekking a bright future for our tribes and all New Zelanders.
Waratah is A Maobo (Maori Abbo) original of Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia. Though, she’s just Warratah really. A person her Kiwi family loves. Living her young life and loving it in NZ. :)
- – -
Watching young people like Waratah grow in her Maoritanga (Maori culture) is just one groovy thing I can think of asap about being back in NZ, that I wouldn’t get to see in Hollywood – yet.

Dame Rosemary Horton is someone that Auckland City is very proud of. She’s the socialite whose always “tickety-boo” (Kiwi slang for “she knows how to throw her stuff together, and always look good each day”). More importantly though, Dame Rosemary, thinks of others in need and exhorts wealthy people to give from their hearts and the depths of their pockets. She’s a humanitarian angel of sorts, of New Zealand.
Sort of like, who Angelina Jolie could be like, when Jolie matures. Here’s Dame Rosie’s words:
Blessings come from life of giving as penned by Vaimoana Tapaleao.
Not being able to bake cakes set Rosie Horton on a path of helping others.
Mrs Horton, of Auckland, has been made a Dame Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in today’s Queen’s Birthday Honours and becomes Dame Rosie.
She has been honoured for her services to philanthropy.
Dame Rosie is chairwoman of the Friends of Starship and has been the vice-chairwoman of the Starship Foundation for 20 years.
She has also chaired and worked with dozens of children’s charities, causes and groups helping the sick, disabled, animals, women’s refuge, the performing arts and the environment.

Dame Rosie told the Herald she was humbled by the appointment and talked about the early days when she first got involved in what would be a lifetime of giving back. (more…)

O Kilauea from the ocean floor you rose to be a Polynesian-kissed summit in paradise King isles. ... Today fiery ribbons stream like red hair strands from the eye of your looming blue mountain peaks. ... Eagle choppers fly with matchstick wings high above Manu Loa skies with camera eyes as a cheeky Aussie from Wales visits in Amerika. ... From the eye of this poet from Tarawera's Shakey Isles, you bear witness of the need to give The Water of Life to those who thirst on our earth's watch while we swim as mates so hip, among the sharks at the feet of Pu'u O'o's spark bright rain from within a ring of fire. --Mauri 'Ola Hawaii
[Photograph - Tim Wright photographs Kilauea's fiery eruption for National Geographic]
Hollywood entertainment news as voted by you the people from Hollywood today, is reflected as follows:

Kileaua Scientifc facts: “A fissure opening in this area is not unusual—a similar event occurred in 1997, according to John Eichelberger, coordinator for the USGS Volcanic Hazards Program.
In fact, Kilauea is the world’s most active volcano, and it has erupted 34 times since 1952, according to the observatory. Kilauea has been erupting consistently since January 1983, during which time the volcano has spewed at least 0.5 cubic mile (2 cubic kilometers) of lava, Eichelberger said.”

Anytime is a good time in Hollywood, to write a David Brown post:
With supportive friends – you can do great things.
Without support, it’s tougher to slice through the apathy, the hatred and doubt – JB, 2010′s
News via West Hollywood. Who exactly is hot on Jerry Brown, Governor Elect of California? Hold up, let’s C:
DreamWorks Founders Host Jerry Brown Fundraiser in WeHo
via Katherine Spiers of The Wrap: “DreamWorks founders Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen hosted a fundraiser for Jerry Brown Thursday night at West Hollywood’s Soho House, 9200 Sunset Blvd, Sunset Strip WeHo.
“The private club, more often the setting for decidedly non-political nightlife, is a members-only institution with another outpost in New York City.
“Thursday’s event was a $5,000-a-head reception, with a private party for donors at the $25,000 level.
“Katzenberg, Spielberg and Geffen have a history of publicly supporting Democratic candidates and have hosted fundraisers for Bill Clinton and President Obama.”
Not a bad line up at all of leading Hollywood producer lights, faces and names all in support of Jerry Brown, 72. And of course, Kiwi-Fruit Brown/Green thinking types do too. :) Maori Hobbits fans in this line up, included in West Hollywood. I may not be able to throw money his way, but I can give Jerry Brown support on this blog, with creativity and time.
Like good sheep, yes we brown Maori-Kiwi Polynesians do too. :)
Hollywood, Calif– to [Hobbitsville, Middle Earth], Wellywood a Poneke today. A message on Wellywood casting.
One headline to grow the film industry globally: KEY 3D CINEMA PARADIGM SHIFT – MAORI AND POLYNESIAN TEENAGED ACTION STARS IN 3D, 2010′s
Image of Taylor Lautner of Hudsonville (Ottawa and Potawatomi Native American Indian tribes, descendant) 18, earns more than US$8 million a film in Hollywood. That’s not including his merchandising of his mixed American-indigenous image.
A Native [American Indian] teen in Hollywood. He has yet to appear in 3D cinema texts.
I present Taylor today as food for thought for Maori and Polynesian action stars, who are Hollywood worthy as entertainers also. Remembering that Maori have practiced Mau Rakau martial arts for centuries in Middle Earth, Aotearoa/ New Zealand. We have this history for 3D cinema’s authenticity as Art and Entertainment texts of Hollywood and Wellywood worthy cultural significance.
This thought being presented in Hollywood today for the land of Hobbits and their Oscar-holding creators and auteurs of Middle Earth to mull over. Namely Sir Peter Jackson and Sir Richard Taylor with casting lenses of wisdom and foresight worn in New Zealand, to grow existing and new talent and film markets from New Zealand shores showcasing all of New Zealand’s diverse potential in film growth to our economy. Courage to develop new Kiwi action stars, who have the potential to develop new action film genres that appeal to Asian markets.

Why can’t Polynesian and Maori Kiwi kids, be a vital part of Young Hollywood pop cultural texts, icons, symbols generation, and leadership too?
He’s the footballer that knows how to mix up his American history with a wicked sense of humor. TPM has the story:
Jon Runyan, a former pro football Eagles player and now the Republican nominee of the New Jersey 3 District, standing against freshman Rep. John Adler (D-NJ), has added his voice to the recent constitutional jurisprudence of GOP candidates — listing the 1857 Dred Scott v. Sanford Supreme Court decision as a recent case that he disagreed with.
As the Asbury Park Press reports, from a debate last night: “Jon, it’s a different branch of government, but can you give me an example from the last 10 or 15 years of a Supreme Court decision in which you strongly disagree?” Adler asked.
“That I strongly disagree with?” Runyan asked, pausing for a moment to consider the question. “Dred Scott.”
There was some laughter in the audience.”
Hilarious! 1857. Jon Runyan is too funny. As a once-footballer, Runyan, a man who possesses a great sense of sporting football humor, with pace and position, denotes that the real “p” word needed is patience while referencing the jurisprudence system. 1857 references. His sense of humor, is very similar to that of a Maori’s. He is too funny and worthy of a mention today. Loves.
[Speaking of "Dreds." Here's an image of New Zealand actor, Karl Urban, who stars as Doc McCoy in Star Trek films of today, who also doubles as Judge Dredd (Sylverstar Stallone's old role) in the future of Hollywood Superheroes creation and film franchising. Karl's very 2157 as a contrast to 1857 lol humor today. Image courtesy of: Star Pulse]
