Water for Elephants will have to be quenched one week later than anticipated at the box office.
Fox has changed the release date for the film — starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson — from April 15 to the 22.
I wonder what films are dropping like they’re hot in Hollywood on the 15th then to make Water have it’s new debut date. Interesting stuff.

“Come on, let your colors burn. Even brighter than the moon”–Katy Perry, songwriter.
There is no stopping Katy Perry-Brand. First up she had the whole wedding in a Tiger sanctuary in Rajastan, India to Brit comedic lad Russell, after the two had met backstage at an entertainment awards show.
Perry went on to become Google’s (worldwide) in the Western World (according to Bill Gates company) most searched for woman in the entire world, this year. Wow! That’s quite some celebrity heat for this California Gurl.
This week Katy is on top for the second week in a row leading the US singles charts. Reuters (not E! Entertainment, or, People Magazine, or UK Daily Telegraph but REUTERS worldwide!!!) is reporting: “NEW YORK (Billboard) – The spinning wheel atop the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart came to a halt for the first time in almost two months on Thursday, as Katy Perry’s Firework logged a second consecutive week at No. 1.”
Rihanna is not too far behind her main buddy in pop music. “What’s My Name? by Rihanna featuring Drake, was also angling for a second shot at glory by rising one place to No. 2 on the heels of strong radio airplay. The R&B starlet held at No. 6 with Only Girl (In the World).
These two girls have the golden touch when it comes to no.1 hits on the US charts. Congrats. What they both have in common is that they choose to live in California when not on tour; they both have strong links to the U.K and Commonwealth nations and they LOVE AMERICA. A winning mix, combined with beauty, talent and ambassadorialship traits like few others. Hot!

As a fourth blast hits the Greymouth coal mine, may we take solace in the fact –that no matter where we stem from, we all united as global family who share human suffering as friends connected by common humanity.
To the families of the lost Greymouth miners, these media outlets show their love in caring a lot for you:
Namaste. Special thanks to all of you who read Horiwood.Com in Hollywood. May your holiday season be a good one and 2011 be prosperous and abundantly blessed for you all. Most of all, may your smiles increase and your spirits rise.
According to Quantcast, here’s what we all look like. Pretty diverse. I love you all. As a fellow global citizen, thanks for being my daily teachers who share yourselves on a New Zealand Maori Kiwi’s blog. You’ve taught me so much. As caring is sharing. Many thanks for your open hearts and your limitless abilities to share. Peace.
[Image caption - Fan Sam Bellingham was lucky enough to get a photo with Beyonce as she arrived at Auckland International Airport, New Zealand].
My Maori mum, Tui of Helensville is too cute. Right on midnight (Los Angeles Time) she called me to say that she had gone with her grandchildren to see Bono (she meant U2) perform in Auckland The Supercity.
She also said that Beyonce was spotted going for lunch the next day at The Soul Cafe in Auckland City. “She’s beautiful dear,” were mom’s words.
Maori moms are so much fun. Mine is in her 70′s and can still rock it out to a humanitarian’s rock concert with her grandkids. Namely, her blackest grandchild Bradley James. Love her!
On the phone we talked about what she feels the world needs today. For once I listened. She spoke of people needing a true sense of manaaki (or hospitality from one’s spirit) that this would warm and brighten the world and make it a better place.
She was deep as well as funny as Maori and all Kiwi moms usually are. I felt her manaakitanga over the phone of a woman who has birthed her children in New Zealand, in Tonga in Fiji and travelled to India, China, Israel, America, Australia, the Phillipines as the global people-loving citizen that mom is. From New Zealand, her home–mom’s love of her big-hearted nation in the world beamed bright across New Zealand’s South Pacific Waters to my Maori-Kiwi heart here in California.
Thanks for the fun phone call mom.
And – go Sam Bellingham in New Zealand! You rock. Los Angeles sees your star Kiwi smile too. xox

ROBOT (REMOTE POSITIONING DEVICE WHEELBARROW REVOLUTION) WILL ASSIST IN TRAPPED MINERS RESCUE, NEW ZEALAND, REPORTS WALL STREET JOURNAL
[Picture: Robotic rescue technology, New Zealand/ Scoop]
Robotic wheelbarrow and MANTIS technology was originally designed to be a reasonably achievable means to reduce or avoid the presence of personnel in the LHC ring tunnel and beam stop areas of underground tunnels. They can also detect gases that could be harmful to humans–CERN research paper 1991.
WALL STREET JOURNAL USA – November 22nd 2010–Rescuers at a damaged New Zealand coal mine in Greymouth New Zealand, will rely on a robot normally used to disarm bombs in their latest effort to locate 29 miners trapped in the pit since an underground explosion three days ago.
The robot, known as a Remote Positioning Device Wheelbarrow Revolution, is used by the New Zealand army’s bomb squad where pockets of gas make it too dangerous for rescuers to enter the pit.
Equipped with sensors to test for poisonous fumes and four powerful cameras to search for survivors, the robot will relay information from inside the mine back to rescuers by fiber optic cable.
In New Zealand, black coal is a visual we associate with trapped miners at Greymouth’s Pike river Kiwi-India joint coal mining venture, mine blast yesterday.
TV commercials and a white chocolate promotion via a Maori schoolgirl, Hinetaapora Short winning a national talent search is also another visual we associate with New Zealand at this time also.
Now, New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key wants us to think blue, his political party’s colors when voting in the Mana Electorate bi-election today. The videos above shows Mr Key and Willie Jackson son of Dame June Jackson pushing hard for National MP candidate Hekia Parata‘s bid. John Tamihere rather humorously (as John bats for the Labour political party) can’t quite bring himself to give Hekia the big tick. He offers a diverse democratic view to the dazzling, Parata steam roll effect of a valuable Maori politician.
From Hollywood, I on the other hand have no problems saying vote YES! for Hekia Parata. She’s a bright light not only for New Zealand but also on many wider human rights issues in the world as well as key areas of trade and negotiations also, with ensuring that the world has the very best New Zealand products at their tables and in their science labs also. I’ve met her, I like her. She’s fun, colorful, interesting, smart and a honey.
Vote Hekia Parata to see change for good in the world. Let’s go Mana! And go Hekia, with thanks also to John T for offering a different political view from New Zealand as well.
Like New Zealand’s Prime Minister on a global stage, already she’s a star. (I know this, because I have a blog and can check globally voted stats 42% of US voters as the main blog audience group and 18% of voters in India too. Hekia resonates with these voters on this entertainment blog from California). It’s very clear to me each day, that Lady Gardiner fascinates the world.
If you’re a star, why be dimmed? Shine brighter. Turn this star up with your vote. Go Hekia and all good women like her.

Los Angeles, California (CNN) — Hollywood and India’s Bollywood have signed a historic cooperation pact sealing a deal that ranges from production to distribution to content protection. Economic development and collaboration is what is sought.
Signing an official pact at Paramount Pictures Studios in Hollywood, the pact’s aim is to develop and strengthen motion picture production, distribution, technology, content protection and commercial cooperation, according to a release issued by the Motion Picture Association of America.
“This declaration reinforces our city’s commitment to attracting international production,” LA’s Mayor Villaraigosa said. “In the past year, we have already seen Hindi movies such as ‘My Name is Khan’ and ‘Kites’ filmed in Los Angeles, and we enthusiastically welcome further Indian production in Los Angeles.”
“In addition to the Hindi film industry, the southern and regional Indian film industries also welcome the opportunity to work hand and hand with Hollywood. Already we have seen significant collaboration in technology between Hollywood and South India, and we will soon see collaborations in production,” a Bollywood leader said.
According to the Motion Picture Association of America, in March of this year the two joined forces in Mumbai, India, to launch the Alliance against Copyright Theft, a Bollywood-Hollywood content protection coalition in India.
That’s epic. Nice one Cali and India!

Sorry everyone, not in America!
On the positive side–America is showing the most signs of improvement for economic growth opportunities it works for with ‘our’ own ‘American’ hands in the future. Plus, plenty of opportunity ahead to make up for these forced-handed bullying tactics too, out in the open and on display with the rest of The World. Namaste India and Japan for the helping hand to America at this time in US history.

When we talk about ASEAN nations, or APEC nations, or Obama’s current tour of Asia, we effectively are talking about nations of the world who have Brown Eyes. India, China (1/3rd of the World’s population just in those two nations alone with predominantly brown eyes).
We also talk about Maori the people of Samoa, Tonga Tapu, Fiji, Rarotonga, Nieu, The Tokelaus, Tahiti, The Kings and Queens of Archipelagos in The Marquesas and The Marshall Islands where my American footballer namesake once lived. We talk about brown hobbits and Kiwis. We talk about all people of Papua Niu Guinea, The people of Brazil, The Amazon, Italy, Espana and so the lists goes on to Africa.
This song goes out to all of you today. And to those with variations of blue and green and grey and violet eyes–may you have the courage to see through brown eyes at this time too, in world history.
Perhaps most importantly we also talk of Arab nations and Israel and their peace in this world. We hold keys. Most of these people have brown eyes. Their eyes are our mirror, and we their mirror of acceptance, calm and peace.
Let’s go people! Tihei Mauriora!

At best America is always pieces of a puzzle, fighting for identity across its 50 States. The front cover of the New York Times paints that eclectic battle within US Shores that constantly rages 24-7.
Obama Courts India as a deeper ally is the main story, in my opinion.
India “emerging” is interesting. Hasn’t it already arrived with 1.2 billion people? I think so. Did India not America print $600 billion in cash this week? No. So we have some spoiled babies printing these dumb headlines.
Come on New York Times. Get it together. :)

It looked as though Michelle and Sonia had coordinated their sartorial choices for the evening: Michelle was in a dark grey gown and without jewellery. Sonia was in a sari, shades lighter than Michelle’s grey.
Four guests signalled their nationalistic dress preferences: A.K. Antony and Deve Gowda showed up in the south Indian “veshti” and shirt/kurta; Mulayam Singh Yadav in his dhoti-kurta and Rahul Gandhi in pyjama-kurta and open sandals.
Mulayam reportedly greeted the Obamas starry-eyed, unable to get over the few Hindi words the US President threw into his speech in Parliament.
The power couples of the evening were Mukesh and Nita Ambani, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw and her husband, and the Analjit Singhs of Max Medicare, the last ranking as a major sunrise sector in India’s overseas collaborations.
A few others, including Sunil Bharti Mittal, Shashi Ruia, Rahul Bajaj and Subrata Roy, came alone.
Some of the guests said they were “pleasantly surprised” to sample the “100 per cent” Indian fare — a fusion of Punjabi, Avadhi and Mughlai cuisines — considering the complaints that had tumbled in at earlier dos about the “vapid” steamed and stir-fried veggies and watery “dals”.
The reason: the catering was outsourced to Delhi’s well-known chef, Marut Sikka, a favourite of Sonia’s. The starters included Sikka’s trademark spinach “papri chaat” that he reportedly unearthed from Varanasi’s “gallis”.
It seems the Obamas were comfortable with the fare and even ate samosas with their fingers.”
[Wow that was quite a pecking order of names].
Blame it on the boogie, Miley Cyrus shows off her tattoo in Madrid. From India, here’s a taste of a big Bollywood number to get used to.

MAORI ECONOMY AND SUPERGROWTH -MAORI SCIENTISTS REQUIRED TO MANAGE IWI-OWNED MINERALS RICH RESOURCES KEY NOTES PM JOHN KEY
Maori walk on stormy water of a historical legacy of laws (and actions of confiscation and exclusion of Maori) effectively shutting Maori out of equal property ownership and resources. Add to this, the current times of an economic global crises. ‘Miracle Maori’ and ‘Maori-friendly miracle-thinkers’ are needed to set New Zealand up to be competitive globally in the 2020′s. Let’s fly and walk on water faster, then. But wait, is that approach scientific? Kia Ora from Hollywood New Zealand. :)
Another thought is that –if every Western nation is clamoring to boost their economy with China and India (both nations total a population of 1/3rd of the world’s total population), then Maori can’t necessarily look to Western countries. If this is the case, culturally nuanced Maori (who have lived as bi-cultural and multi-cultural people daily) on a real level, not token, perhaps have the skills needed to meet and negotiate for New Zealand from a nuanced cultural basis, being key, to aid the advancement of all New Zealanders in a growing NZ economy with emerging markets with China and India.
Having posited that thought, Maori children need to learn to speak hindu and Chinese then asap, right along with Espanol. I think.
Photographers and TV cameramen record what the Obamas wrote in the guest book after their visit to the memorial for the Nov. 26, 2008 terror attack victims, at the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel in Mumbai Saturday. (Credit: AP Photo/Charles Dharapak).
CBS News wants us to know that it’s very hard for them to get their cameras near the Obamas in India because the media scrum is “intense.”
Here’s that report:
“Media coverage of President Obama’s visit to India is beyond intense.
More than 200 news channels in 26 languages are providing wall-to-wall coverage of the president’s three days here. The news operations have a huge audience. Nearly 1.2 billion people live in a country that is about one-third the geographic size of the U.S.
Indian TV news takes note of every word Mr. Obama utters. No syllable goes uncovered.
Virtually every Indian channel carried live coverage of the president’s town hall meeting with students at St. Xavier College in Mumbai.
One questioner was curious about the impact of the U.S. midterm election. “It seems that the American people have asked for a change,” observed one politically astute young man in the audience.
The president agreed and predicted he would, “make some midcourse corrections and adjustments.”"

No one can quite move their hips and hands, like the Kiwi-Tahitian girls dancing to cultural choreography in Auckland, The Supercity New Zealand. They’re the Polynesian version of beautiful Middle-Eastern belly dancers of the Middle East. These one’s are found in peaceful beautiful clean and green New Zealand, or, Middle Earth if you’re a fan of New Zealand cinema.
Anyway Kiwi-Tahitian girls are quite unique in New Zealand. Seen at the Pasifika Cultural festival (they’re the highlight) each year.
Check them out one year. Well worth it. :)
Happy global traveling and exploring diversely colorful dance cultures of the world. Chalk Auckland into your cities to visit. The city’s mayor Len Brown has this to say as an official invite to US all:
“Auckland Mayor Len Brown has taken the first steps towards making Auckland one of the world’s leading events cities.
The mayor has commissioned a report from the council controlled organisation Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development Ltd on how to make the city more of a destination for unforgettable local and international events.
“I want Aucklanders to have a sense of pride and excitement about the events in their city, I want Kiwis from other regions to come and experience the best we can offer, and I want international visitors to go home telling everyone Auckland is the place to go,” says Len Brown.
Next year, Auckland hosts international events such as the Rugby World Cup 2011 followed by Volvo Ocean Race, and the ITU World Championships in 2012. Auckland’s biennial arts festival celebrates its fifth birthday, showcasing artists and performers from New Zealand and abroad, and as every year, the city hosts the largest Pacific festival in the world, Pasifika.
“We will continue to attract high profile international events while promoting our distinctive local events to domestic and international visitors. Similarly attractions around the city, such as sculpture or wine trails, can be promoted as regional packages to our visitors. With all our attractions, stunning environment and friendly people, we have the potential to develop a world class reputation and a prosperous tourism industry,” says Len Brown.”
Fun, let’s do it then. Heilani Hula School, Hawaii also has Tahitian dancers too. This post also features Indian actress, Smita Patel. :)
Air New Zealand is the airline to give a whirl. They’re cool.

Watch clip here.
FLOTUS, Michelle Obama, laid all her American dance moves aside and leaped into some new fun and learning, dancing with young people in India.
Their traditional music, is a little bit hip, as reflected in this dance video too of Beyonce dancing at a block party with arms raised, Indian style also. (Kylie Minogue‘s arm/ hand movements choreography from her new music video Get Outta My Way, a few weeks before Beyonce was filmed, doing Indian-styled hip hop choregraphy, also reflects the same trait. Hands expression in dance is India).
Nice cross-cultural similarities being found and created right now in world history (in arts and cultural performing arts) between America and India with Mrs Obama. Quite novel really, who ever would have thought?
Also Britney Spears Bollywood choreography in her Circus World Tour was also a forward-thinking example of this. The most successful cross-over American artist in India’s history is Michael Jackson (1/4 of all music download in India, is that of MJ’s). Nice to see Michelle Obama going after the Jackson golden trail of cultural appeal that Indians like… in the dance of life that in universally shared by us all.
Janet Jackson also demonstrated this in her no. 1 hit, Runaway -the music video,15-years ago for American women crossing over into India by paying tribute and respect to Indian women’s legacy of dance as performing artists. That clip below. Michelle Obama makes it look so natural and easy for America to dance Indian. Love it, just like the world loves Janet doing the same thing. Mrs Obama is the first First Lady of America to do this. Go Michelle!:
Of course, being a Kiwi I ask the question, what would Bollywood musicals choreography look like, filmed in the colorful magic of 3D cinematic mastery? Now there’s the future of cinema and musical cinema(s) bridge-building cross-culturally smart, right there. A part of it, anyway. Peter Jackson directing a simulation of the Taj Mahal imagery in 3D could be quite hot, when filming action and choreography. Watching Mrs Obama perform in the above clip also reminds me of Avondale, a city in Auckland The Supercity and the culturally rich Kiwi-Indian community of New Zealand. Love them.
