CLEAN DRINKING WATER FOR ALL

1 Fact: 1 billion people do not have clean drinking water. Where: Africa and India are most affected.

The threat: More people are lost in the world through this situation than war.

The solution: We can make a difference through UNICEF Tap Project. If you want to, please do.

True fact 2: For as little as $10, one person can have clean drinking water for a lifetime.

That’s like a beer at a Hollywood club with the tip. Amazing aye! Act. Bump this post on too. Let’s flow. :)

CHRISTINA APPLEGATE. ADAM LAMBERT. CANCER RECOVERY PRODUCTS

ChristinaApplegateCancerSurvivorWomensHealthMagazine

Christina Applegate is a Hollywood actress who inspires in her high profile and much publicized recovery from cancer. Go here to see video of Applegate’s behind the scenes photoshoot for Women’s Health Magazine, as Applegate contributes to cancer awareness.

To support women’s rehabilitation from cancer, while being beauty conscious, this brilliant website–Cancer and Careers, allows you to buy beauty products while donating to cancer survivors well being. Impressive charitable branding of beauty products!

CancerAndCareersGiveBack

Go here to order and spend your beauty money more strategically for a good cause. Also gift these products this gift giving season to women you love and know, and/ or… to men like American Idol break out star, Adam Lambert!!!

Going by Adam’s totally ridonkulous For Your Entertainmnt album cover, the gay performance artist and entertainer needs a truckload of beauty products! He’s high maintenance, as you would say in West Hollywood.

AdamLamberForYourEntertainmentAlbumCover

To keep it ‘real,’ you might want to get Adam a sandblaster too, from the Home Depot Store, with your gift purchase to assist Glambert in getting his war paint face off a bit quicker each day, to save time with his busy star schedule.

The Huskie Sandblasting Kit “designed to remove rust, scale and paint as well as etch glass and weather wood” looks like Adam’s hot ticket, for only $9. Adam Lambert is like America’s gay-white-male, Rihanna of pop on this cover. It took a lot of make up to achieve this ‘futuristic’ out-of-space, comsic, gay vision. Adam knows that aliens are the hot new trend in Hollywood after vampires have run their course at the box office, in 2012.

All humor aside, donate to support women recovering from cancer in their careers today and buy Adam’s album, that features the single Time For Miracles from the 2012 movie soundtrack, if you like his music.

Go Christina Applegate and Adam Lambert! And a Great Beauty Branding Award should get dolled out to Cancer and Careers innovation in marketing today. They are just too awesome!

iMAORI POETRY 101 – HORIWOOD ON THE HOLLYWOOD LIFE

Hollywood101Freeway

Kia Ora (hello). Some of you are asking me why I don’t write much poetry  these days and just blog about celebrities. So this one’s for you. It’s a poem submitted for Whetu Moana Lua, poetry anthology collection of Maori and Polynesian Poets around the world. Editors are: Robert Sullivan, Reina Whaitiri and Dr Albert Wendt. Originally, I wrote for  Whetu Moana when being trained by author and professor, Witi Ihimaera, in the  art of creative writing.

To  enjoy and appreciate my  poetry for its inflections of  the Maori language, I recommend using this tool, to understand words you may not have heard of before. Being a hori (Maori)  in Hollywood is a pioneering thing, so the online Maori dictionary will help any of you LA types reading it.

My  poems from Whetu Moana I, are taught in Universities in America (the mainland), New Zealand, Hawaii, the UK and Edinburgh Scotland to name a few. So…. I’m shouting this out to all you guys and dolls today doing English Literature progams around the world. Thanks for reading poetry. And most importantly, may you all continue to write your own poetry too.

Flip the hood to read:

iMaori

 iMaori is the name of my phone

that uses niu media in a hori way

 

‘the taiaha of new technologies

used skillfully in brown hands’

 

online it searches the Maori dictionary

–the Ngata version, of course.

 

finding kupu food  to enlighten and

illuminate the wairua and mind

 

it’s also the Maori stork, delivering

in Rei Tu and Rei Pai legendary fashion

fresh pics of pepi, Jake Kereama

 

he’s of Nga Puhi Tonu Nui descent

was born into a hapu of Whakapara

 

while his Uncle Hami played Kupe

in a faraway Hollywood land

 

my phone houses the inner marae walls

held in the crucified palm of my hand

 

flickering through digitized sepia photographs

of my grandparents and the many greats

 

who walked in my moccasins long before

jandals were even invented for big hori feet

 

where their ancient tribal paths meet the axis

of my globalised Maori self, I still hang with them

 

iMaori brings me Hotere’s vintage wisdom too

of no ordinary sun poetic epiphanies

 

of a simple life lived with profound thoughts

defining life beyond an economic atomic

Bush bomb

 

There are no ‘enhaloed clouds’ in sight, but

an economic recession sits heavy on the moko (more…)


CHRISTINA APPLEGATE + LEE DENIM FIGHT FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

ChristinaApplegate

This from the lovely Christina Applegate’s twitter  account this morning:

1capplegateFor those who missed it. Lee denim day oct 2. Register at www.denimday.com and help fight breast cancer!5 minutes ago from UberTwitter

The Lee Denim website,  gives this story from Christina who survived a double mastectomy radical surgery, chemotherapy and radio therapy in her fight against breast cancer. Love this woman! By  the way, Horis (Maori Women) have the highest breast cancer rate in the world. Let’s make a change. Christina says:

“In 2003, I had the pleasure of serving as the Lead Ambassador for Lee National Denim Day®. As I return as the 2009 Ambassador, the importance of this campaign has become even more real to me. Last year, I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. I learned from genetic testing that I have a mutation in the BRCA 1 gene which makes me more susceptible to breast and ovarian cancer. As a result, my doctor ordered a variety of screening tests to try to detect cancer in its earliest stages (when it is most treatable), and it saved my life. So this year, I am proud to return to Lee National Denim Day not only as the 2009 Ambassador, but as a survivor doing all I can for this cause. By joining me and wearing jeans on Friday, October 2, you can help fund the important work of my friends at the Women’s Cancer Programs of EIF. This year, I’m excited to announce that a portion of funds raised will also support my personal foundation – Right Action for Women. My hope is that with Right Action for Women, we help women at increased risk for breast cancer gain access to the information and tests that they need to beat this disease. Together, we can raise millions to support breast cancer research and awareness. It’s so simple and so powerful. I truly believe that it is events like this that help save lives. All it takes is $5 dollars to make a difference. So join me on October 2. I have a great feeling that with your help, this could be the best year yet! Sincerely, Christina Applegate.”

KAI ORA

Fresh, healthy food made with aroha
Anne Thorp
Random House – $49.99
 
 
I have had the great good fortune to attend many book launches during the 40 years I have been involed in the book world but few would compare to this one.
First off there was live entertainment throughout what proved to be a four course sit-down lunch at one of Ponsonby’s finest and most durable restaurants, SPQR.
Secondly the food was all from the book being launched and it was absolutely divine!
Look at this, makes a change from my usual lunch of ham and tomato sandwiches!
Here’s the menu as described to us by chef/author Anne Thorpe:
Caprese Salad - A little iconic starter of Buffalo mozzarella
Tasty prosciutto ham, Vine ripened tomatoes, Sweet basil and flaky salt
Served with delicious OliveNZ extra virgin olive oil           

Paua Risotto
The paua arrives fresh on the day from the Far North, thanks to commercial free-diver Sam Kereopa. I’m combining it with the creamiest, tastiest Arborio rice and I can tell you now, this dish is truly wicked!
Koura Linguine (pic left)
Sam’s out on the Hauraki harvesting crayfish for this event. He’ll be straight in the water as soon as he returns from the Far North. You will thoroughly enjoy this super-fresh dish, served with the beautiful flavours of fresh limes, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, chilli and tonnes of aroha!

Aporo & Calvados
Organic New Zealand apples oven-roasted and flambéed with Calvados liqueur
Served with the sexy French St Agur cheese

And then enter the the wine sponsor - Yealands Estate.

These guys practice environmentally sustainable practices and run the world’s first winery to be constructed entirely under the green building code. I understand too that Yealands is NZ’s largest privately-owned vineyard. Built from scratch in 2002 and the wines were a perfect food match. I tried both the Pinot Gris and the Resiling and both were excellent.
The event, for that is what it was, was superbly MC’d by Matai Smith , while the entertainment was provided by Cydel, Ardijah’s Betty-Anne (love that ukelele babe!) and Ryan, and cousin of the author, super star Whirimako Black ,(I have all her CD’s, bought at Matakana’s Village Bookshop).
So it was stunning food, great music and most pleasant company. I had the privilege of being on the Random House table with publisher Nicola Legat, publicist Sarah Thornton, Random House author Denise L’Estrange-Corbet , book designer Olivia Haddon and the man who wrote the foreword to the book, Cancer Busting Food, Anne’s surgeon , Trevor Smith.
What a lunch, what a book launch.
As publisher Nicola Legat ,(how many books a year does this woman launch ?, and she does them all so well), said in her opening remarks, this is unique New Zealand food being presented to a mainstream audience and I reckon she was spot on.
The recipes in this superb book (with spectacular photography by Aaron McLean) feature mainly kai moana (seafood) and Anne brings to these recipes a unique Maori emphasis and flavour. She is of course a renowned TV chef but more importantly she is a superb chef/hostess in her own home and I am greatly privileged to have been one of those who has enjoyed the hospitality of Anne, and barrister husband Fred (another Gisbore old boy!), in their wonderful beach home on the Nortland coast (pic left).
Yes, it was indeed a memorable lunch. I may need a nap before dinner! And as an aside I don’t believe I have ever been to a book launch with such a large number of media people present, some working while others enjoyed the lunch and entertainment.
Thanks to Anne, Random House, our entertainers, and SPQR, owner Chris Rupe, (an old friend of the author), was even waiting on the tables himself along with James, maitre’d extraordinaire.!

Kai Ora means healthy eating or literally, ‘the food of life.’ 

Some insightful person must have aptly named the Kai Ora TV show and the TV series’ consequent  book very well. It is what it is.

ChristinaApplegate

No. It’s NOT Chelsea Handler of Chelsea Lately, it’s Christina Applegate of Samantha Who?

Applegate’s show has been axed due to monetary cut backs sighted as being the reason, Variety reports. Well, at least Christina Applegate is still People Magazine’s #1 Most Beautiful person this year, if its any small consolation to the blonde starlet.

Applegate has been Paulina Porizkova-ed Tyra Banks style and is now without a job due to the $! Sad.


WHY KELLY BUNDY IS PEOPLE MAGAZINE’S MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WORLD FOR 2009

kellybundychristinaapplegatemostbeautifulpersonintheworldpeople

[image source] I’ve been scratching my head all day, as to why People Magazine (the second biggest seller in the US each week) would list Christina Applegate as their most beautiful peep in their Top 100 list. All day, I was blonder than Applegate herself, and couldn’t work it out, until I saw this image.

Of course, greatness feeds into greatness. (more…)


PEOPLE MAGAZINE NEEDS A NEW EDITOR IN CHIEF

people100mostbeautifulpeoplecover

People Magazine released it’s Top 100 Most Beautiful People. Although I think Christina Applegate is a lovely girl, whose surviving cancer story is inspiring, she is NOT the most beautiful person in America, let alone the world.

This perhaps indicates, that People need a change of leadership at the helm, that’s a little bit more relevant and in tune with what true beauty is and how audiences perceive that outside of People’s editor’s single-eyed lens. (more…)
