Let’s see what New York, Miami come up with for New Years. This hotly contested American NYE night, Vegas has got Hollywood’s vote to date. Last year Gaga took out the spot of hottest NYE in Miami, Florida. Can Rihanna hold the spot in Nevada this year? Yep, I reckon she can.

Alrighty, I am still obsessing on the fact that Michael Jackson as a brand to entertain, still rocks on, because his architecture as an entertaining King, has a life force of it’s own–with or without him.
That’s nuts. For a fragile dude, he sure built a solid kingdom of entertainment to model. Look at this stuff fly. It’s the real deal of a King. Dance is celebrated in these images of art and performance. Monarch butterflies and Doves feature too.
These are the symbols that Jackson’s children and Miss Janet Jackson – MJ’s sister, are presenting to his fans and the world.
There is no more successful American who proved they could cross over and appeal to India, like Michael Jackson. He “lived beyond color lines, geographical borders and boundaries” to paraphrase his sister’s Rhythm Nation lyrics.
He was cross-cultural, all people he saw as being the same. As a culture maker, and America’s King of Pop he saw his role as creating symbology for his fans, so that they could have a sense of global culture that resonated with them all.
Seriously though, as New Zealand is the nation that creates Jackson-Taylor Monarchs in 3D in the 2010′s of cinema mastery –we perhaps need a ‘royal cinematic meeting of entertainment minds’ with one of MJ’s kids or his nieces or nephews (we’re not fussy), to star in our Hobbit films, to cement that point. What a cool idea.
Let me play ‘stand in’ Hollywood casting agent on this one… We’ll go for Blanket Jackson thanks, as a Hobbit prince of Latino descent. :)Having seen both Michael and Janet Jackson both perform live in concert in Auckland at Mt Smart Stadium, New Zealand with friend, Trinity Brooke, I think Blanket would rock, following in the footsteps of the family, in a Hobbit film shot in 3D and Middle Earth. Imagine that! A real Jackson Hobbit too. Perfect!
Enjoy these images, from Blanket’s Estates’ one page ad in the LA Times today. A paper that services a city and associated cities of 20 million people.

[Photo caption: YEEHAH, IT'S SAMYAH: Samyah Powell, 9, is hoping to get the role of the Milky Bar Kid all tied up but in the meantime she's trying out the ropes on Whangarei Primary School principal Rob Soar].
Meet Samyah Powell. As mentioned, this kid wants to be the new Milky Bar Kid repping New Zealand’s luxurious white chocolate made from milk of the best dairy cows in the world. TV commercials are what’s up for grabs for chocolate manufacturer Nestle if Samyah lands the spot.
Powell is one of ten children short listed for the role and the only one North of Auckland. She’s representing good farming muster country in the far north.
Reports The Northern Advocate: “The Whangarei Primary School pupil loves reading and maths and is top of the class. Her flair for performance has been polished through hip-hop dancing and cheerleading in which she has competed internationally. Whether or not she becomes the newest Milky Bar Kid, this little star has already performed in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Melbourne, Sydney.”
Said Samyah, “It would be cool to be the Milky Bar Kid.”
What do you think? Should Samyah Powell of North Auckland, be the next Milky Bar kid?
Samyah does look a little like Justin Bieber in this pic anyway, so you never know. Here’s looking at you, kid.

High Five: They were once, a sought after Maori show band in Vegas. All Maori who live here. New Zealand brought them home, to honor their talents and contribution to the world as Maori entertainers. Although High Five performed with greats like The Beatles and Ray Charles, I love the Sammy Davis Jr. reference of who High Five worked with as performers. Chaa! :)
Cute story. It’s in Te Reo Rangatira (the Maori language), unsubtitled this time in English (sorry) but well worth a play out to depict US-Maori relations, that have existed for donkey’s years, entertaining America with Maori and Kiwi music talents. Entertainer and Maori-Scottish lad (woot!), Frankie Stevens, explains how important older Maori entertainers have been in shaping and mentoring those following in their footsteps. The year Frankie joined Hi-5 in Puerto Rico , he says was the best training in his entire career. Now Frankie does the same thing, for all Kiwis as a New Zealand Idol ‘judge’ figure of a culture of emerging performers. A good story of reproducing talent via mentoring.
This clip is like the food of chiefs to me. Thanks Tini and Scotty. Mauri ‘Ola.
~Posted by Horiwood.Com, Hollywood California USA. Presenter: Scotty Morrison , executive producer, the incomparable Tini Molyneux, Te Karere, TVNZ. Tini is of Ngai Tuhoe Maori tribe of Ruatoki and also Auckland – The Supercity. Of Tini Molyneux – there really is, no one like her. Go Hi-Five! Go grey power! Go the next wave of hori Vegas show bands and entertainers.~
LAS VEGAS – MAY 27: U.S. President Barack Obama was given a peepshow tour of a solar power site today with Col. Howard Belote and Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid. The President was at Nellis Air Force Base May 27, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Nice to see solar power and natural energy being checked out by The President. It’s time to harness the sun and the wind, and put it to good use. Las Vegas is also the gold capitol of the USA. For example, it has Mel B there of the Spice Girls as a guest resident at the moment in Peep Show at Planet Hollywood, after all! I hear she’s really good! [hey Nevada!]
