An Arizona sense of Humor: “Just got three gold teeth for my new role! Peruvian chicks love a guy with gold teeth I have to keep telling them I’m not a rapper or a drug dealer but no one will believe me.”
Twilight Saga‘s Alex Meraz always makes me smile the way Alex tweets. His native American Indian sense of humor is very similar to Maori in New Zealand. Here’s the rest of Alex’ tweets as a working action star actor of Hollywood:
On how fame changes community roles: “Just got invited to do a police ride along…and I’ll actually be in the passenger side and NOT the back this time!”
How to announce getting selected as a sex symbol of America: “Check out my photo for PEOPLE MAGAZINES “Sexiest Man Alive issue” in stores now http://twitpic.com/37q2df“
On the joy of screenwriting is entirely one’s own–most times: “Been giggling to myself all day like a little girl…nearly finished writing a movie script and It’s a shake-weight stroke of genius!”
On prepping for Twilight filming: “Guess what script I’m reading? I’ll give you a hint…It rhymes with “Breaking Dawn pt.1″ Oops!!!”

Taylor Lautner: The only teen action movie star to clearly make it through Hollywood’s quick sand celebrity hoops in 2010 by playing a teen werewolf has managed to keep his newest relaysh with Lily Collins out of the public eye, at least compared to his tour-de-paparazzi-force courtship with Taylor Swift.
This kid never made the top ten in Hollywood this year, but still proves he can kick above his weight in Tinsel Town. He’s a symbol that teen lads can do anything if they work hard, get lucky breaks, if authors write popular book series with teens in mind that then get adapted to film; and with the right parenting behind them.
Lautner’s upcoming movie work in Hollywood sees him cast in the film: Abduction (Post Production); The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I & Breaking Dawn Part II as Jacob Black.

By the way, for somewhere exotic if you’re from the mainland in the US, Fiji is pretty hot too to vacation at.

JOSEPH DUNBAR, MAWHERA RESIDENT, SEVENTEEN-YEAR-OLD TEENAGE MINER, IS REMEMBERED BY THE HUFFINGTON POST, RIP
He is the teen who wore a coal miner’s hard hat for but an hour–Joseph Ray Dunbar RIP
Today America mourns the loss of Joseph Dunbar, the 17 year-old teen, whose first day at work in a coal mine, cost him his life at the Pike River Coal Mine Ltd managed New Zealand coal mine in Māwhera (Greymouth), Aotearoa/ New Zealand.
His story is tragic. Youthful potential of a son of New Zealand (a minor in America) gone too soon. He had a job, he was working. It just wasn’t his day. Here’s the Huffington Post‘s story via The New Zealand Herald:
“A teenage boy who was on the job for just one hour is among the 29 New Zealand coal miners trapped after last Friday’s explosion, the New Zealand Herald is reporting. All of the miners have now been declared dead.
Joseph Dunbar celebrated his 17th birthday Thursday, just one day before beginning his new job at the Pike River Mine. According to his mother Pip Timms, Dunbar was originally supposed to start work Monday, but he was reportedly so excited after an on-site tour that his boss let him begin Friday.
“He wanted to do this for a very long time,” Timms said of her son. She went on to note that he began planning to work at the mine since they’d moved to the nearby Greymouth area from Christchurch. “He set himself a goal, and achieving that goal meant everything to him. It meant he was going to travel with the company, take him different places. He was absolutely stoked. He was excited, he was ecstatic.”
Timms was distraught over the lack of news about the rescue efforts early in the search. “It’s pretty horrendous really. It’s quite hard,” she said. “You just keep going but you get exhausted and try to rest, but you can’t because your mind is just going over everything.”
So sad. I am reminded of Kevin Costner‘s “on screen name” as the actor and director who won Oscars for the film Dances with Wolves that he starred in with Graham Greene who played the legendary Kicking Bird character, a Lakota Indian Chief. Costner’s character’s name was John Dunbar. On IMDB (Hollywood’s industry guide), John Dunbar’s plight is defined as being: “Lt. John Dunbar, exiled to a remote western Civil War outpost, befriends wolves and Indians, making him an intolerable aberration in the military.”
In this film, loved by many Americans and people the world over too–we see a man in communion with landscape with nature’s resources and in dialogue with the people of the land. It’s a beautiful movie. A role that conscious Kiwis play each day with Maori people of Aotearoa/ New Zealand. It’s actually quite an exciting life. Culturally rich in its cross-over potential and meaningful on a real and deep level. I miss this a lot most days. My parents reflected each day, when I was growing up in Middle Earth, Kiwiland.
If there’s any consolation in this film for Joseph Dunbar and his family at their tragic loss at this time–may you find hope in the beautiful healing landscape of New Zealand’s scenic views–and in the comfort of friends not only locally but also worldwide at this time thinking of you all.
There just are no words to convey such a loss for a kid, a teen, a young man on the job wearing a hard earned hard hat with a lamp on it– for merely but an hour on his first day of his working life.
Heart-wrenching loss of youthful potential. As there are no words in sharing with the Greymouth Dunbar family’s grief, I must turn to the mastery and magic of a musician for their inspiring gifts to heal the world with a score of hope. On that keynote, here’s composer John Barry‘s orchestral film score music to offer solace from Hollywodod today in the hope that the spirit of adventurous lives remains rich in the dreams of all Kiwi kids, like Joseph Dunbar, who lived and grew up happily treated to beautiful views of nature daily in a West Coast green paradise like no other. Each day, young Kiwi Joseph’s eyes soaked in such cinematic worthy beauty from nature. His person was blessed, daily. May Joseph’s life be celebrated by all young people in New Zealand who have a dream and are prepared to work hard for it, knowing that even at great risk or unknown factors and odds too, a dream is always worth fighting for and working hard for each day–as Joseph’s intentions exemplified the first day he started at the coal face of his job.
His life speaks of reaching for a dream today in a community of brothers committed to industry, profit, community and the common wealth of global family. In New Zealand, human life is always our most valuable and highly prized asset this nation values, above any other resource or commodity. Joseph Dunbar’s loss is huge news today. Ka aroha tataou i tenei wa. May the sun shine again on the Dunbar family’s smile in the world. Love you.

“When they laid down their arms, we murdered them. We lied to them. We cheated them out of their lands. We starved them into signing fraudulent agreements that we called treaties which we never kept. We turned them into beggars on a continent that gave life for as long as life can remember. And by any interpretation of history, however twisted, we did not do right. We were not lawful nor were we just in what we did. For them, we do not have to restore these people, we do not have to live up to some agreements, because it is given to us by virtue of our power to attack the rights of others, to take their property, to take their lives when they are trying to defend their land and liberty, and to make their virtues a crime and our own vices virtues.”–Speech for the Academy Awards protesting the treatment of American Indians, written by Brando courtesy of The New York Times.

In the 2010′s people who think green for the environment–are the big stars of the world–Horiwood, Hollywood.
When Native American Indians (perhaps the most unselfish people and most tolerant in America) indicate the world is changing due to global warming, I perk up my ears and listen. They’ve got nothing to lose in indicating we all better live a bit differently and stop polluting the planet so much in our generation so that future generations won’t hate us later for being greedy idiots. For this reason, I love this story today.
Jennifer H. Cunningham brings us this unique story as guest commentary in Hollywood today. She writes:
(Nov. 21) — Streams that support cold-water fish are getting warmer. Traditional native plants are becoming harder to find. And some animal migratory patterns have been altered and disrupted.
Native American tribes own and manage 5 percent of the land in the U.S. — lands that are rich with renewable resources. But Native Americans are disproportionately affected by climate change given their close association with land and wildlife as they live in dialogue with the earth more than most of us do each day.
‘Climate change is being acutely felt on reservations in the West, putting tribal environments, identity and cultural traditions at risk, experts say.’ (more…)

The Valley always brings a smile. In right or wrong ways.
Here’s some images of “Native American Indian” Art, right on Ventura Blvd in The Valley, California. More specifically located at The Indian Art Center of California. A shop.
Worth sharing today as a commentary on society in general. There wasn’t a real Indian in sight. Go figure.
My always over-active brain asked the questions: Where are the real Native American Indians at, in Hollywood? And where is the Native American Indian line up of Senators in the American Senate? State Governors too?
Instead, let’s just share these pictures. Do I believe that any “Native American Indian” visual presence is better than none? Yes I do. The rest is up to US –of “the political issues” that these artworks raise awareness of, in modern society. Inclusion vs Exclusion? People in dialogue with landscape and natural resources preservation or not?
I think we need these peoples view in the world, across a lot of government policy-setting and decision-making arenas, don’t you?
By the way, I love The Valley. It can be a fun place. Known to be a little less uptight and snobby, than other parts of Los Angeles. There are a lot of nice people there 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?
Ko au, ko koe. Ko koe, ko au. I am you. You are I. One –Cliff Curtis, wedding ring inscription
A smile is your passport to anywhere–Horiwood’s dad.
If you’re happy, you’ll notify your face–Rob Packer, pianist/songwriter, NZ
Te Whare e tu nei, Aue karanga mai–This haus that stands, calls–Kataraina Mataira, songwriter
Ka kata roa tatou, Ka kahanui tatou katoa–In laughter is our unanimous great strength–Horiwood
I’ve showcased their a capella singing talents on this blog before, here they are again. With such beautiful smiles, voices and wearing subtle capes – they are like Polynesian super heroes to me, when looking at them from Hollywood. Te Piringa Kapa Haka (Maori Cultural Glee Club) sing in beautiful harmony together. They sing of gratitude. Some of the lyrics translated in English are these:
“And now, let the weak say I am strong. Let the poor say I am rich…
With grateful hearts, we (collectively, in unison as one) give thanks”
Culturally rich, beautiful, spiritually and culturally-nuanced entertainment, in harmony and unison. I love these kids. Their message is UP! and so Hollywood Maori groovy. Go Te Piringa. Go Kapa Haka. And go hori entertainers of the world. Fun! These young people have a spirit of gratitude, a rareness of sweetness and diplomacy that is needed for all children today in our times. They embody youthful potential of smiling faces shared with each other as young people, celebrating the unique gift of cummunity. A universal trait that should not be diminished by economics. They are winners, with their sweetness.
It is my belief, that gratitude and celebration of thankfulness, helps paradigm-shift young people from economic lack, leading to depression (robbing life from the young) -but gratitude moves teenagers into a realization that friends, community, family, culture, art and the performance arts together are always a young person’s treasure. No economic grinch or pinch of circumstance can take that away - which is why I share them with you all as worthy Hollywood entertainment today. Go kids!
This one going up for fans of Glee here in the US as reflection of Glee diversity of a nation that is an ally of America. And in support of New Zealand’s very own Hilary Clinton-esque Maori woman politician, Hekia Parata in recognition of her current Mana campaign and what this means for The World.
[Lea Michele and friends of Club Glee take the cover of GQ Magazine. Scandalous! Image via Cover Awards]
Hekia Parata is a person I proudly associate myself to being from New Zealand and a resident of California - in recognition of her potential to further Maori and Polynesian culture, entertainment in the world – as a healing remedy in entertainment and world politics to remind all people, to stop, consider nature, the environment, the earth’s resources, to consider people – regardless of tribe, of race, of ethnicity, to consider Spirit – and to always give thanks in a shared celebration of life. This is her armory as a politician of future significance. When I met Hekia at Kai on the Bay, now Kai in The City of Wellywood, 7 years ago, she sparkled, wearing a large single white diamond, a centre piece gem stone of Africa, worn around her neck.
Mauri ‘Ola from Hollywood. Btw: Hekia can sing like these soloists. I’ve seen her, sing at a dinner table for 15. After dining on seafood bisque and koura as a main (lobster) in Wellywood, Hekia then sung with her friends! An amazing born performer. She can sing and entertain. Hekia this one is for you and Porirua, especially and what this city can give the world from Wellywood. In celebration of Maori, Polynesian, Kiwi kids potential and New Zealand culture of cinema and the Performing Arts to bless the world, this post goes up with a sense of joy and pride in the Entertainment Capitol of The World. ICU.
Did I mention Hekia has the best “hair care” in the world too, naturally. She’s like a government Work Hori In Progress meeting – she can Whip That Hair! like a colorful Willow Smith Snr. She’s all about rocking good hair in politics, like many First Ladies of the Political set are in The World at this minute. Not to name names from the Cameroon or the US, either. Lol! Fun ahead. :)
[This image - Black Paua Torch of Liberty - Black leather, with triple-stitched black cotton on Paua shell (symbolizing, the eyes that see of our ancestors and leaders as carved on every marae wall in "wood" of every Maori tribe, unifying US - for Hekia Parata and leaders who always make you smile. This is their gift as unique politicians. Memorable leaders, born once in a lifetime for such a time as this. Louder!]

A reminder that long before we were ever given titles, our ancestors chose us to be here, and our conviction as Indigenous Peoples also bore witness with our breath that breathes richly today in our spoken reo (voices)–of the fact that we always chose ourselves to be taonga of The World and speak Life into eachother’s wairua (spirit) to strengthen, so that all could benefit.

Here's some Glee paying tribute to a great, Britney Spears, to amuse, while dancing, campaigning and waiting for those results, with a Taylor Lautner reference as a reminder of what Indigenous kids of any culture can achieve, if gym and action star trained and fit - with the right support needed and allocated. Polynesian super heroes are the future of 3D Hollywood and Wellywood action films if given the opportunity to be.]

Along with Hollywood’s Maori King, Cliff Curtis –newcomer, Alex Meraz - is one of my favorite actors. Like Cliff whose method acting work is exemplary in Hollywood, Alex chooses to engage in Indigenous Culture (our Indigenous form of theater) with his bros, cousins, friends, whether a camera is on them or not, or whether an audience isn’t involved. They are authentic actors, artists and performers, who rock. Both have spirit.
Anyway, being a part of Hollywood, means playing the lol shallow roles of ‘movie star’ and the illusive idea of celebrity. Alex’s twitter always makes me smile. He’s a sport. Here’s ten tweets from Alex today:
1. “Toronto bound!! I hope they let me through customs with all my sexiness Im smuggling in. My cheesy lines always gets the ladies…to puke.”

[John Warren, artistic director of the New World Baroque Orchestra, holds photographs he took of the Carabajal violin that was later stolen from the San Miguel Mission. Photography: Anne Cusack, Los Angeles Times / April 12, 2010]
This intriguing story of a violin, The Salinian Indian Tribe’s love of music and Franciscan Friars work in California, captured my attention today. L.A Times has the story:
“Reporting from Jolon, Calif. — “Jose Maria Carabajal was toiling for the friars at Mission San Antonio on California’s Central Coast when he first heard the exalted strains of a violin.
His people — the Salinan Indians — had been making music for thousands of years, but he’d never heard anything like the sounds soaring from the priest’s polished chunk of wood and gut.
Intrigued, Carabajal decided to make his own. The instrument he crafted in 1798 from bay laurel and other native woods was solid enough to last more than two centuries and sweet enough to build a reputation of its own.”
Sad this violin got stolen, before most of heard about it. What an interesting tale. Would make for the basis of a great Opera, or musical as a theme.

Vicky Young does something that’s called Non Fiction Photography. She takes a photo and then she creates a story around it–that is based in reality, not fantasy–or blurred reality like celebrity blogs often are.
I like Vicky Young because she took the time to write a piece for The Survivor Chronicles. Her post today is called From The Other Side. When you were born in Fiji, raised in Aotearoa/ New Zealand like I was and are now a resident of Hollywood–although you are an Angeleno, your reality is still always From The Other Side–literally. Young’s blog has resonance with me. She’s Navajo Indian. I am Maori.

Says Blue Water Comics President Darren Davis of the company’s latest acquisition and graphic storytelling subject Taylor Lautner of the Twilight Saga film franchise:
“The Twilight series has become a pop culture phenomenon. It’s transformed previously unknown actors into superstars. It seems that the same thing is happening with Taylor Lautner.”
“We at Bluewater are happy to bring Taylor’s story to his fans, and hope that his comic helps introduce these readers to the joys of graphic storytelling.”
Pop culture has always been about the manufacturing of an image that represents something greater, like a cultural trend of a desiere to be greater. In Taylor’s case, young defenders of action–is his filmic message at 18 years of age and an American icon.
Again–Stephenie Meyer is his starmaker with this message that has propelled Lautner, deservedly to superstardom. Meyer is already a comic book too for Blue Water along with J.K Rowling of Harry Potter fame.

PRESS RELEASE: PERU COMES TO HOLLYWOOD. PRINCESS KAIULANI FILM BENEFIT EVENT WITH COLIN FARRELL AND Q’ORIANKER KILCHER IS A HIT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - PERU COMES TO HOLLYWOOD. PRINCESS KAIULANI FILM BENEFIT EVENT WITIH COLIN FARRELL AND Q’ORIANKER KILCHER
Hollywood, California (Tuesday May 11th)–Last night Colin Farrell opened the Princess Kaiulani film benefit event for Peru at The Majestic Crest Theater in Westwood..
Princess Kaiulani tells the ‘true story of a Hawaiian princess’ attempts to maintain the independence of the island against the threat of American colonization.’
The film received applause throughout the screening and also at movie’s close. It was an idyllic period film; both captivating and beautiful in its settings of quaint English countryside and the timeless tropical beauty that is Hawaii. The film is a visual treat.
Starring in the lead role, Q’orianker Kilcher was every bit an American princess both onscreen and off at the VIP post screening function.
