“Keeping secrets on our pillow”–Brandon Flowers lyrics, for those who grieve grief’s unquantifiable language in the dark night of the soul.
“As a family, we have been so fortunate to have a son and a brother who has so enriched our lives. To the young men of this country, Jack would want me to say this: Be your own man, do not be afraid to dream and pursue those dreams with quiet determination. Be sincere in your friendships, and keep those friendships in good repair. Stay true to your beliefs. Love your mother,”–the farewell words of Roger Howard on behalf of his family and friends, Anne Scott and daughters Charlotte and Isabella–as Roger laid his son, Private John Howard (Jack) to rest at Wellington’s Cathedral of St Paul in New Zealand’s capitol.
Private Howard was a Kiwi lad serving in the the 3rd Battalion in The Parachute Regiment of the British military, who was ‘killed by American soldiers piloting an American F-18 Hornet fighter, during a friendly fire incident in Helmand, Afghanistan,’ reports the UK Daily Telegraph.
Two Maori warriors carrying taiaha (traditional Maori wooden weapons of the art of Mau Rakau hand combat martial arts) ‘accompanied Private Howard’s coffin along with seven of his fellow British soldiers.’ In very poignant imagery, his coffin was draped in a Union Jack flag and with a traditional hand woven Maori cloak as he was carried into the cathedral, with his family following behind.’
His family are such big-hearted people to be able to forgive the futility of Private Howard’s loss of life in Afghanistan’s war effort. The cost of war to America and allies has been shared by many in common bonds of brotherhood in the hope of peace in the world.
New Zealand is a small nation. News like this rocks New Zealand culture to the heart, deeply. We don’t have all that many people to lose, our nation is small. One life lost is like 10,000 to us. It feels like as a Kiwi looking at New Zealand from afar in California that I’ve unexpectedly found myself crying about 29 lost miners gone too soon recently and now Private John gone too soon as well.
Such news makes any Kiwi cry. Blokes included. We’re just wired that way to fellow Kiwis in a deep and committed sense of place and Life’s purpose in the world. I’m tired of crying for New Zealand blokes lately in Hollywood, whose lives have been lost too early in the pursuit of the earth’s energy resources or a real sense of Peace too in the world transcending war. Accidents resulting in loss of lives in both cases, where unexpectedly men weren’t safe. Sorry, but I am. It’s just gut wrenching and we all share their loss and contributions to our culture.
RIP Private Howard. Sending kind healing thoughts and prayers for the Howard-Scott families this Christmas. A Kiwi brother of Commonwealth and Am-Kiwi community gone way too soon. What a beautiful send off for this Kiwi lad as these pictures show. John’s grandmother Elizabeth Scott looked very regal at the helm of her family.
Haere ra ou tatou teina–a symbol of a younger brother’s vital potential– to us all. Hollywood salutes your blood father’s spoken symbolic words of Peace in the Spirit of shared bronaaki culture (fellowship) that is Our Protector, stronger than war’s unquenchable grave and the proven Victor over death itself. Mauri ‘Ola Tatou. Ka Tu Te Whare Ka Ora o Te Ao i te taha o Te Awa Ora, Mo Ake Tonu.
In the spirit of global brotherhood that surpasses any difference of race, geographical borders, religious or cultural boundaries too in our shared humanity of melanin fused with spirit on this same shared earth we love, here’s the group Candella singing Brandon Flowers song Crossfire in honor of Private Howard’s life of service for the world. The song is offered from Hollywood today in the hope of Peace’s diverse rule and expressions in hearts and minds universally as an intelligent way forward of all leaders of future generations who wear Wisdom’s timeless glasses to see the best paths forward for children to walk in freely. Children who as global friends, consider each other equally and who build good friendships across all cultures of the world, as their open hearts so choose to as our guides, teachers and leaders without fear. [Thanks Candella & Brandon Flowers]

When I first got to Hollywood I really was deluded that I could write PR manuals. Here’s one book of snippets written for a former publicist of America’s biggest music stars that were all somehow connected to Shawn King‘s dad. I used to work in his office each day in lower Beverly Hills doing spin while he appeared on LA’s top Entertainment News Shows or in magazines talking about Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton being rogues that generated tabloid buzz in Young Hollywood on the competive club set.
On my last day working for him, I wrote this book over two nights–to say thanks for all he’d taught me. I did my interpretation of the wisdom he was always reaching for to have as a Russian-Jew descended from a tough holocaust surviving dad. His big thing, was ‘wise paragraphs’ as his favorite thing to read because he was so busy trying to conquer the world of Hollywood–hence these tips I wrote for him that I accidently re-found at My News Digest. The dude had written twenty books and I wanted to give something back to an author.
I love the internet. If you’re a blogger you’ll soon discover that you’ll have so many computers stolen, crash permanently or damaged through getting hacked here in the US, that I didn’t even have a copy of these written words anymore in doc form–but they can be found on the net–a reason why (for right or wrong) you should always have the courage to self-publish electronically.
Mr Publicist Guru, whose books on PR have been translated into 22 languages now–even in Russia and Chinese, used to say to me outrageous requests each day like, “Locate and get me US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on the phone for me, this minute.” And I would. Nuts!
She was lovely to speak to. So gracious and wise. Here’s snippets from that coffee table book, written for a PR King of LA.
Good PR protects and counsels with thoughtful wisdom
PR TIP # 21: “Fame is often a substitute for loneliness. It is God and not fame, that sets the lonely in true families. Family will always be the height of true fame. Good PR will support family, always. In the mode of Barack Obama, nations are families connected to other families on the earth. PR the earth and make its well being known. That is true and meaningful fame, towards our collective fortuitous future.”
by Sam Cruickshank, from the book, In The Presence of A Gorilla: 1001 Things About Hollywood PR.
PR TIP #22: Stars who have longevity, (more…)
Laughter as a unifying bond: “laughing at ourselves in shared openness,
disarms tensions and the bombs of strife and war”
A defining moment in global politics. The good, the bad, the ugly & the principle of all laughing together for things to get better: The Wikileaks leaked US docs scandal has got many nations worried what the tide of American opinion on world leader’s performances will be like in the oncoming weeks. It’s sort of like having your school report card read out to your entire high school (ie: The World). Who can’t empathize with anyone in politics right now–at this moment? That’s an uncomfortable feeling–for people who are used to being protected, rewarded for giving away very little information (eg: the art of Elena Kagan being interviewed provides a good study on that) to suddenly be forced to be more open by these leaked docs. Shocking, really for the rather closely guarded cushioned world of global politics.
With wikileaks leaking American docs–this news story is first scripted as an American-driven political narrative. Meaning, it’s a very US-shaped form of ‘perception shaping,’ ‘rating,’ ‘ranking,’ ‘sorting,’ ‘reordering a world order,’ ‘categorizing,’ ‘stereotyping?’ and ‘spicing up the game’ or world politics–all not on purpose, by the American government of course. Darn leaked documents being the cause of it all! Wikileaks just can’t be trusted!
In Oscars Hollywood history, the Cocoanut Grove was the venue celebrating Americans much loved art form of Hollywood’s cinema’s best awards for excellence.
From this image we see a Palm Tree as a symbol of Peace. Whether a palm is found in California, throughout The South Pacific, in Israel or Iran provides a message for us all to ponder as a symbol.
A palm tree grows peacefully in earth’s soil, irrespective of how people draw up maps of territory. Its a very humble tree. It just grows. Its leaves offer shade in extreme heat conditions for people and camels alike. It always signifies that water is found nearby, water being a symbol of life that all growing things need to live. A palm tree’s fruit is eaten by people of Californian, people in Iran or Israel alike. A palm tree does not discriminate. It looks after people equally.
May leaders of the world (G20 Economies Summit leaders included) all have a movie date with Peace, in their hearts concerning the future direction of the world and showing mercy to others, not all that different from ourselves.
This is California’s story in the City of Angels. We are peace messengers in The City of Angels–just like a palm tree is. May the art of peace be the most glorified American art of all and bring forth its fruit in due season.
I think an emphasis on water systems watering people who don’t have it in the world with clean drinking water, would be an intelligent thing of G20 leaders to obsess on at this point in World History. With the existing wealth all G-20 Summit leaders nations have, let’s leak some water these nations way who are without.
That’s smart leadership. Instead of just “World Economy, War Economy,” as buzz words, let’s think “Water Economy” too for all people in the world. A war on lack for the least in the world is what’s needed. That’s true power, to think that way and shows respect for basic human rights in the world.

Sometimes gallantry is letting someone you love, have their space.
Brian Austin Green gets deep talking to show biz spy on how his relationship to Megan Fox has stood the test of time to date.
He explains why they both split a little while last year. Here’s that interview:
“The reality is, she was 18 when I met her and she went through an enormous change in her life… just her career in general and going from being a girl who — when I met her, she was living in New York doing Hope & Faith and we’d go to restaurants and I was the person everybody would recognize and point and laugh at or whatever,” he said.
“And all of a sudden that turned around and she couldn’t go anywhere and her name and her face were everywhere. So, she went through the natural period of, ‘I’m not sure if I’m ready to be in such a settled relationship.’
“I didn’t want her to feel like she was stuck because she said she wanted to be in a relationship to begin with and we just never really went in different directions. We’d say, ‘Oh, let’s kind of take a break and see what’s going on.’ It always came back together.
“I have an eight-year-old, he was two at the time, when Megan and I met. She helped me raise him and it’s a huge responsibility. There was a lot to it.
I like Brian Austin Green’s thoughts at this time in Hollywood with so many splits taking place not only in Tinsel Town but across the US in tough economic times.
It’s always wise to reconcile two warring parties, if that’s possible. The way of the wise is to make peace.
Breathe people… is the message.

JOHN KEY AND THE KAITIAKI (GUARDIANS) OF MIDDLE EARTH’S MINERALS RICH LANDSCAPES TALK RESPONSIBLE MINING FOR MAORI AND KIWIS
[A brown owls/ els Parliament Post on Mining: In this video footage from Te Karere, The Maori News, Kelvin Davis of Ngati Manu, Karetu, Bay of Islands has some interesting thoughts to share on Maori and Kiwi mining. He is "no." My thoughts are, minerals are the allusion of wealth (a metaphor of sciences future direction linked into IT production too). Like diamonds allude to a wealth trail--minerals are the bait to attract other biz deals in a modern world, and you must have some minerals on the whanau table, or else you'll miss out on meeting global trade opportunities. I have ideas, but they're not being put on here. :)
Perhaps quality, limited supply, over quantity is a good balance for Kelvin's tribe--and being more strategic with developing the use of minerals as Maori tribes, so the supply is maximized and controlled more (for a purpose--not wasteful), to preserve the resource could be key too. China, India, America--all want minerals (a strategy to save oil usage on the planet)--specifically for green energy technologies advancement, so if the Kaupapa is green there may be a meeting point there. Always remain open. Put some family jewels on the table. Give a little. Diversity from tourism is key too. What to do to be a part of the global game? Watch this clip. Mauri O'la Kelvin Davis].
New Zealand is such an onto it, nation. Everything you can imagine is there in this paradise nation, naturally, but the leaders of this nation, are mindful that they are stewards for future generations of the wealth and abundance they collectively share.
The rare leadership displaying respect to the environment is, in-the-main, a unique cultural-economic role they play, called “Kaitiaki” which means a Guardian.
They are stewards and guardians of the future generations of New Zealand and this rules their thinking of a temporal sense of personal gratification and selfish use of the resources of the earth. To me, they are star leaders, their knowledge of the environment, woven into governance matters–is a star template for leading-edge, wise global leaders worldwide.
Within this context of leadership, a timely discussion is occurring with Maori leaders of New Zealand and Prime Minister John Key on the topic of mining. Here’s a full report from TV3 News on this issue, down under in the green paradise nation of Aotearoa/ New Zealand or Middle Earth as we know it too, in California.
TV3 NEWS reports: “Iwi leaders and the Government have met to discuss mining, and how Maori could be part of talks about future mining and energy issues to prevent disagreements such as that by East Coast Maori over oil exploration in the Ruakumara Basin.
Prime Minister John Key and Energy and Resources Minister Gerry Brownlee met the Iwi Leaders Group last night.
[Metiria Turei is a Green Party politician. Her party believes in the legalization of Marijuana and Preserving the Earth's resources with green-thinking strategies forward in a modern world. Whenever she appears on any political matter, she pops! Her political trajectory is colorful showcasing both the humor, theatricality yet intelligence of the New Zealand sense of showpersonship. Read her resume for chuckles. There's no Hollywood or Washington star quite like her]
[To visit Great Barrier Island go here. I went to school on this Island briefly with my siblings as a kid. Everything about it is other worldly. It's a country paradise surrounded by extraordinary beaches. It was like living on the set of that hit Hollywood TV series Fantasy Island every day. Great Barrier Island is real, but surreal. Beautiful. Go to this Island to let your children discover a quality adventure with nature.] News story continues.

It’ so good to see President Barack Obama‘s beaming smile.
On the cover of The New York Times today, topics that consume The Big Apple are: political donors, Bohener on GOP direction and a very touching story of a Presidential wordsmith, Theodore C. Sorensen, 82, Dies .
Sorensen is the man who wrote for one of America’s most love Presidents, JFK, more on this wordsmith man in a bit. He was described as the President’s counsel. What a compliment for a man where still waters of wisdom ran deep.
Mr Obama needs at least ten such men around him. Ladies too. One of the most searched for topics today on the Times Website is: the education of president obama.
Also rating right up there in The Big Apple’s topics of interest is news on Jon Stewart‘s: rally to restore sanity.
While Fed Agencies pat themselves on the back that the crazy bomber, threatening America’s sanity this Halloween, with scary parcel mail outs, was outwitted by intelligence. That was the show recap over the weekend, as far as NY Times are concerned. A good analysis – although APEC news occurring over the weekend hardly featured as yet.

There’s nothing like a vintage Lord of the Rings Poster with some austere Gandalf, The Grey lines to reflect upon. Here’s 3:
“There are many powers in the world, for good or for evil. Some are greater than I am. Against some I have not yet been measured. But my time is coming.”
“So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we do with the time that is given to us.”

RICHIE McCAW THE WORLD’S no. 1 RUGBY FOOTBALL PLAYER SAYS FAITH IN OLDER PLAYERS IS REQUIRED IN WINNING SPORT
As the New Zealand All Blacks team prepare to battle Australia on the rugby football field, at time of writing in Hollywood–the team’s captain Richie McCaw, adds:
“When you get tight in a game it’s believing you can get there when you’re down on points,” he said.
“I’ve been in teams where you feel helpless and you’re not going to get there. It comes down to belief in the guys that lead it, the older players.”
Wise words spoken. Experience is always like wisdom’s gold, under pressure. Another good message from a New Zealand leader today.

MAIKI SHERMAN – COVERS POLITICS IN THE MAORI LANGUAGE – SHANE JONES FOR TAMAKI ELECTORATE, THAT’S CULTURALLY VISIBLE IN NUANCED ARTS 2010′s
In the age of iPhone and digital media telephony – globally, a nation’s visibility is perceived as credibility. Maori and Polynesian Arts as Visual Arts getting more visual in Tamaki is a necessity to attract a global economy to New Zealand. The substance transmitted in all media that cannot be replicated, it stands on its own, will always be Spirit. If we possess it, we must serve it to Shine.
If we are credible, we must match the integrity of our belief with greater and more creative visibility as leading entertainers contributing to culture in the world. Whether they know it yet or not, the world needs US and our culture as expressed from artistic spirits–Horiwood on Arts & Visual Arts in The Super City – 2010′s.
Hot! Watch this clip to see news reporter Maiki Sherman covering politics and news in Auckland – The Supercity in Te Reo Rangatira (the language of Chiefs).
This clip also features Shane Jones who will stand in the Tamaki electorate, next election. Presenter Scotty Morrison and executive producer Tini Molyneux for Te Karere News bring us this unique story in Hollywood, wtih Maiki – for your viewing pleasure and Hollywood entertainment diversity.
Shane was Harvard educated in America, where he studied with his wife and children. He also speaks the indigenous peoples language of New Zealand – a future trend for all politicians in New Zealand to become more proficient in, for the upcoming years of NZ politics. It’s time.
For Maori leaders like Shane, promoting Maori women into leadership roles across all sectors of society is his and his male peers’ (regardless of color) next biggest challenge. I see Shane being very instrumental, visionary and gentlemanly in this role as the world seeks out Maori women leadership and their wisdom as women on many global issues concerning other women, in the world. Maori and Kiwi women have a gift to lead that’s on the rise.
[Um, I'm posting this clip, because Mr Jones said "And how is that talented son of yours?" to my Maori Helensville-raised mom, when the two last met, at Dame June Jackson's anointing in Auckland - The Supercity.
[This pic - Samuel Marsden of Yorkshire, a later arrival and founding father of New Zealand]
Shane and I both grew up in Nga Puhi country – when he was not in America studying, learning at the feet of Maori Marsden - one of the greatest minds on theology, whose gift of Peace to mediate, along with Gra Theodore‘s is legendary in the ilk of New Zealand leadership circles.
Maori Marsden was the great grandson of Samuel Marsden of whom exploits and legends of New Zealand history books write about. Samuel had a spirit of deep respect for Maori, similar to that of Sir Douglas Graham. I pay respect to these greats today too from Los Angeles, The Entertainment Capitol of the World.]
For all of you Hollywood readers –manners with a reply back is how I was raised. My reply: E pehea ana a Lucas raua ko Kylie Brown? Kia ora te whanau katoa. Kia kaha.
Maiki Sherman appears at the end of the clip, rocking it in the Maori language. Is New Zealand getting a cultural revolution in between filming Hobbits in 3D for Hollywood audiences, or what? So exciting to see Maori and Polynesian culture thriving. That’s the spirit. It would be awesome to see a leader from the Tamaki Electorate develop and foster Maori Art House Cinema in Tamaki and take Maori and Polynesian cultural operatic performance to cirque de Soleil heights too, in Tamaki.
We need cultural visibility in theater, film, fashion, globally competitive music and dance choreography that’s relatable, emulatable and appealing — across all arts genres diversity to compete with the way visual arts, are being used in political circles today.
In observing political trends in and from the USA – A nation’s arts, proceeds it’s message of political value. There’s no way around that. Art and culture is the artistic armory of Kings to trade within a culturally nuanced global market place.
Now there’s a challenge for a Tamaki electorate leader to foster and ensure for Auckland City’s global presence – for our Prime Minister and nation’s culture and economy growing and feeding into each other, naturally, like enriched dialogue depicting intelligence of expression and maturity of nationhood, in our pride and sense of place – from a paradise nation rich and beautiful in ecological resource.
[Message to Tamaki Electorate - Horiwood Hollywood, is pictured holding Wellington-based Maori-produced magazine Tu Mai in Hollywood California. Held is an image of visual artist, model and talent, Yasmin Bidois, 15, symbolizing people wealth of our young people’s talented potential. Yasmin wears a Hei Tiki in pounamu worn by Wahine Rangatira of the Chiefly ancients – but now, a young woman faces the challenges before her in a modern world. This image depicts a visible age of Maori and Polynesian in the age of iPhone mobile telephony and all media globally.
The artistic statement is: “Maori on French Art fusion via Hollywood, California USA.” All Maori produced media in making this low budget visual message. Put simply – Visibility is our credibility. Let’s get louder and more visual to express and grow Tamaki’s artistic cultural potential in The World and to compete in a global economy. Korowai evening dress, Yves St Laurent, couture of France, 1952. In honor of French-Maori connection in the arts, as Yasmin also symbolizes by blood. We are New Zealand art. Let’s get visual with sophisticated production budgets in creating our own globally appealing artists and messangers of cultural texts that have an appealing message about who we are as Kiwis. Mauri ‘Ola tatou.

“Forget your perfect offering there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.”-Leonard Cohen
“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing themselves.”-Leo Tolstoy
What must we do, to change ourselves, have the courage to expose our flawed humanity to the light of truth so others can learn and share in knowledge acquired by experience, and that the light of change can be more complete in US?
Courage to always share. This is the essence and fabric of real community. Thank you for sharing.

World leaders around the globe are calling for their governments and their countries to save energy and think green.
In fact, some government’s see a direct link between saving energy and good leadership. Green has become a measure of accountability, which I’m all for leaders demonstrating, because at best, leadership is a threefold stewardship which is concerned with:
a) wise leadership considers the earth’s resources.
b) good leadership considers people, especially the youth and elderly always.
c) genuine leadership is not afraid of having measures of accountability.
In the U.K, Prime Minister David Cameron today charged central government departments to cut energy use by 10% during the next month.
“In May, I called for real action to make us the greenest government ever,” says Cameron. “I made a commitment that over the next 12 months, central government departments would reduce their carbon emissions by 10%. We have made a start but clearly we can all do much more.”
Over the summer, each government department launched its own online energy meter to show consumption over the course of each day.
Now an online league table will bring together the data and allow the public to compare how each department is faring on a day-to-day basis. By the end of the month, the league table will reveal which department has managed to reduce consumption the most.
“Today is a clear challenge to Cabinet ministers and an opportunity for the public to hold us to account,” says the Prime Minister.
How cool is he? David Cameron is so cool! He reminds me of The Green Party of New Zealand the way he leads. What a guy.

Every now and again, I kid myself that I can put down my bowl of light-hearted cereal, bloggers are prone to enjoying late at night, and do a blog post that really matters. More salt of the earth and sea, than sugar. This is one of those.
LIFE. What is it and its meaning?
According to Premiere-In-A-Box, a red carpet entertainment events company, life is:
These four concepts, all used collectively together like a symphony, are the four key notes to play for anyone who desires to rise up and be (as the events company says) “an Ambassador of Compassion to help ease the suffering of others and lift up their community.”
I do believe Premiere In A Box has one of America’s best definitions of L.I.F.E – spent on and off the red carpet of Hollywood you could ever witness, experience, feel or become a part of yourself–especially at this point in U.S history.
And undoubtedly, they DEFINITELY have the HOTTEST DEFINITION of the “F” word going on in the entertainment game too. They’re too fierce!
Forgiveness determines our fruitfulness in L.I.F.E. Period. Thanks p.i.a.b. Let’s go meaningful and life-infused events from California. Up!
