It is not exactly warm in L.A today – I’d quite like to be in Hawaii right now at Dukes listening to good live music. However, Los Angeles is all okay today too, indoors. The South and NYC have blizzard situations going on. Poor peeps. Here’s ten hot posts being bumped via social media this Christmas right now in Hollywood.

DEMOCRACY IN HOLLYWOOD BLOGGING AS FRESH CULTURE BEING SHARED AND TEN SOCIAL MEDIA SHARED POSTS – 12.22.10
Angelina Jolie is always a face people like to share via social media. And Shania Twain proves that maturity can only occur with forgiveness–the sweetest revenge of all is growing up in love–forgiving people who try and mangle that desire to love and be loved in us all, is key as Shania proves! She is a total winner.
In addition to Angelina Jolie being the most shared face and name of this blog in Hollywood across 2010 here’s some other thoughts too.
The thing about Hollywood blogging and working at it 24-7 in Hollywood is that surprising discoveries occur daily. Like the fact that all these names and topics are being bumped on via social media too right now creating culture that’s fresh in the USA with every fresh bump of information transparently shared freely. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I do believe that is clear evidence of democracy at large. Love it. I was just about to get a rubber stamp made with my signature on it to give away to Republican politicians for Christmas (each stamp gift boxed wrapped with a dog collar made for British bull dogs) as their fantasy gift to affirm their whole gig as puppets of a political system. In their gig they sit in The House in 2011, waiting to be bullies like greedy-gutted ankle biting, annoying dogs, who are told to not stop barking until ink has been signed from a half black man’s hand that they rudely and publically disrespect and despise (the current look of US politics has been reduced to that look, sadly–evidence of racism still needing its head lopped off before it spreads and poisons a new generation of Americans again). However, because democracy is still alive and well as these shared posts prove, I don’t have to get the rubber stamp now.
Maybe gifting some boxing gloves to Barack instead would be a far more wiser, cost-saving investment. Keeping those gloves on his hands at all times, instead of signing Republican bills in the house–would be far more entertaining and just.
I will be doing more Pro-Obama news posts though just to give you the prior heads up in advance– every time America’s President stands up for himself in 2011.
For sharing joy with others as fresh culture via social media, you all inspire. Go you guys and girls!
My favorite one: RED VELVET CUPCAKES MADE WITH NEW ZEALAND BUTTER ARE DELICIOUS
As sharing is caring in an age of digital transparency many people like Joe Biden pretend to resent but I like and think is healthy and inevitable at this point in the world, check out the following blogs and websites who do what I do too, after the leap. Fun!

Rugby football is on this weekend in the New Zealand All Blacks VS England game at Twickehham, U.K. Here’s what rugby football is looking like -from Hollywood with ten entertainment and celebrity news posts being bumped on right now by us all.
Corey Flynn News: Despite suffering a hamstring strain at training yesterday All Blacks hooker Corey Flynn remains upbeat for start against England.
All Blacks hooker Corey Flynn is remaining upbeat despite another injury setback. Flynn picked up a hamstring strain late in yesterday’s session, putting his involvement in this weekend’s test against England at Twickenham in doubt.
All Blacks assistant coach Wayne Smith says Flynn is disappointed, but staying positive. Smith says at least it is not another broken arm, so it is not going to end his tour. Waikato hooker Aled de Malmanche has joined the All Blacks as cover, having to cut short his surfing holiday in Bali.
While he was part of the All Blacks squad this year, de Malmanche managed just seven minutes of game time. Smith says that is no reflection on de Malmanche’s ability, rather they have typically played their hookers through the whole 80 minutes for consistency sake.
Smith says Aled de Malmanche was their clear next choice behind Andrew Hore and Corey Flynn.

The question on America’s lips today is: Did Lady Gaga wear a sheer bodysuit, while Yoko Ono was all military MC at John Lennon’s 70th birthday celebrations?
Ahem. It’s an irony that a time where unemployment is a smidge bit OOC, here in the U.S, that people who do have jobs, aren’t really doing them. They are all online, looking at their favorite topics. Normal after all. Hi! :)
Here’s what the American people, across the beautiful 50 states of the USA, are stirring their coffee to, in front of their work computers, right now, in their day jobs.
1. Twitter: Twitter‘s CEO Evan Williams has stepped down. Evan is all about product development, whereas Dick Costello has skills to generate the next level of bucks. Evan will stay with Twitter, while secretly developing his own Facebook styled movie script. The last sentence was an add on. But he should. Google is doing one.
2. Lady Gaga teams up with Yoko Ono to vampire John Lennon‘s fanbase some more. The two ladies performed Saturday together. A win-win partnership, with Sean Lennon‘s blessing to make bank. What a quirky concert duo. Of course, that went down in LA at the Orpheum Theater, for John’s 70th Birthday celebration. And equally as important, here’s ‘my’ buddy Julian Lennon from 1999 who I met through a mutual friend from Ireland here in L.A, talking about his late dad and his own issues, about having a Beatles father. Jules is a cool guy, watch him below. Very humble. Loves Maoris. Has worked with horis in the past.
Oh - Gaga, 24, said to Yoko, 77: “Thanks for being so brilliant, and an inspiration to so many woman.” Aw.
3. Flo TV, has got no more flow. It’s finito.
4. The Medal of Honor shooting video game, will awaken the wannabe military killer in you. Who wants to be that, if you don’t have to, serving on military duty? On the other hand virtual soldiers for recreation could be hot. But in the hands of kids? Don’t know about that one.
5. Jeff Garcia sends Twitter wild.
6. Endhiran Box Office Report: Robot sets an all-time record in the history of indian film industry. Robotic Bollywood, now in 3D? That must be what’s coming up next in the future. This film, Anjaani, Anjaana stars Ranbir Kapir and Priyanka Chopra, not quite 3D high tech. It would be funny to see a robot, stop and sing a Bollywood song half way through a 3D effects scene, though.
7. Tony Curtis is buried in Vegas with 400 friends in attendance. More on that later.
8. Smartphone users will get a refund from Verizon. When platforms go down, it’s big bucks lost. So much of money, is tied up in communication, about the next ’moment’ of blah blah. Staggering really, what we’ve all become. Phone obsessed people.
9. Prison Planet lambasts the US government with manipulating the public to put faith back in ’government’ using Terror Hysteria Recycled, at Europe’s expense. Yeah, that was not cool. It just makes a certain person’s PR advisor, look totally insecure. Needless to say in Hollywood, if you live here; if a studio announces two years out they’re making yet another film about blowing things up? Who exactly does the blowing up? The studio, according to ’the script’ they announced prior–so again, not a good look, that approach. Washington needs Lady Gaga’s PR team. I mean, Yoko Ono singing, induces terror (but who cares, she’s Yoko Ono!) and Gaga achieved the same effect, without freaking people out for her press this week.
10. Bernanke says the Feds buying more assets, will help economy out.
Who knew Gaga was so soulful in the blues genre. Her vocal maturity has developed well in the last year.

Zsa Zsa Gabor is no longer on a feeding tube but can eat matzo ball zupa on her own. Excellent. And, as we’re having a focus on gay teen suicide prevention this week (the latest crises in the U.S), here’s Ms. Eve (sometimes rapper?) on that topic. She’s very Temptations, as in afro-ed wisdom singing - “just reach out.”
Life is important. And because of that, read these silly pics and posts being bumped on by social media, by our fellow readers right now in the hood.

Pistachio farmers were winners today according to the L.A Times.
Iranian pistachio farmers have now been banned from selling into the U.S due to Iran not opening up it’s nuclear weapons plants for U.S inspection.
The times says that the ban is good news for American pistachio farmers, who have long vied with Iran for dominance in the U.S.’s $700-million domestic market, as well as overseas.
Golden State farmers, are in the midst of harvest season. More than 98% of U.S. pistachios come from California, which produces about 375 million pounds annually; the bulk of that production comes from the San Joaquin Valley. While eating your pistachio’s then, read these.

TYLER CLEMENTI, PAM SPAULDING AND GAY KIDS OF AMERICA AS A NEW SOCIAL PHENOMENON – 10 THINGS RATING NOW IN THE HOLLYWOOD HOOD – 9.30.10, 4.30am
Tyler Clementi is #1 on google trends right now here in America. His suicide case a result of gay voyeurism gone wrong- indicates a trend to make gay people and gay culture a spectacle, but for what cause?
Spectacles are always a) entertaining and b) often maniplated as detractants of deeper issues from those voyeuring- not related at all to the spectacle or the deeper issues concerning a spectacle being showcased. Let’s keep that in mind.
Tyler Clementi’s story is a sad one, he is one of five gay-related teen suicides this week - a jolt to us all as humanitarian hearted people – to a) not prey on the young or b) those who are different.
Turning Clementi into a gay side show, cost this kid his life in the end. Does any culture have a right to turn a minority culture into a spectacle because it needs to update itself with a new skin to be popular and reinvent, without just cause that is actually yielding results for the good of that minority culture?
Clementi’s case, is that end result in a nut shell, as a biopsy perhaps of what is sure to follow across the board, if voyeurism isn’t rewarding back, to the level that its taking.
Food for thought today.
Outside of google’s control and dominance here in Hollywood, here’s what’s rating on this Hollywood blog, entertainment wise, through other forms of social media sharing.

Says LA Times food critic, Jonathan Gold on Top Chef’s chef Michael Volttagio ‘s green foray in steamed baby veges- “The term OCD doesn’t begin to describe the scary focus Voltaggio brings to a lightly cooked baby turnip. This vegetable plate is like Farmer Brown’s garden in miniature.” How Zen green feng shui then. And like a people garden of choices, it’s often the silliest blog posts that we as people love.

Living lives beyond stereotyping is good, you seem to think so as this news item rates in Hollywood today on this blog.
When it comes to ‘enemies’ most wars between nations have been fought, when the majority of one nation, had never met one (or very few people) form the alleged ‘enemy’ nation. Does enemy mean stranger, other, or just someone whose unknown then? I like this blog result.
Let’s think beneath surface. Sometimes.
