“The State where you never find the dance floor empty.” Yep, that’s us!

This one’s for all my Christchurch people Earthquake survivors: Not one life killed. Amazing. Or “a miracle” as New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key expressed to the news of the world. Here’s that quote:
TupacQuote ”My mama always used to tell me If you can’t find somethin to live for, you best find somethin’ to die for.” via Twitter.
Christchurch City is the luckiest city of people in the world. Now a City with renewed purpose of life. Blessed!

M.I.A was so annoyed with New York Times’ Lynn Hirschberg’s interview with her that she tweeted Lynn’s number to the twittersphere. Not cool. Hircshberg’s article is well written and she is a longtime contributor to The New York Times Magazine. Go here to read.
M.I.A has been slapping every major social networking service on the internet, to get on their radar. She’s got an album to promote and her press is all about freedom, liberty etc. Agitprop Girl is M.I.A’s moniker. So she’s off to an okay start.
I’m sorry Chicago, but Ms Oprah Winfrey really is moving to California. She wasn’t bluffing.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Oprah has just hired Peter Adamson to manage her ‘family office’ and watch her money and investments portfolio. In California, Peter Adamson manages Eli and Edith Broad‘s money so that the Broad’s can continue doing artistic and philanthropic things for arts and culture in LA–in and around Hollywood’s movie culture.
It looks like Ms Winfrey is going to get a little bit more creative, in her role as a power producer of Hollywood films and TV Network producing in her next, Californian reincarnation. She’s freeing up her time, so its less money focused. Love it. And the philanthropic money management skills of Peter Adamson on board–prove that Oprah is heading in the same direction as the Broads. Think Oprah in the past–but on a much bigger philanthropic scale.
To check out what’s happening on the Broad Stage concerning music, jazz, live performance and the arts, here in LA… go here. It’s time that LA got a bit more artistically philanthropic. So this is exciting news. The past two years, a spirit of meanness, fear and stingyness has gripped this city. Good works incite more good works. So, hopefully Winfrey and the Broad’s will get a really good ping pong match going on between them–concerning artists support in the 2010′s.
Needless to say, anything that Oprah’s attached to when she hits Califor-NI-A–invest in those stocks. Here’s some retro Tupac–to celebrate in advance, the Oprah Effect on Hollywood. :)

Here’s a little fun line up of hip hop’s biggest stars (Tupac, Fiddy,Jay-Z, Dr Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dog, TI et al) doing what they do best over a melody track of We Are The World… as we continue to think Haiti today and the 230,000 lives lost as this nation rebuilds with our giving and love.
