This Is How You Do It: From Dud to Stud

Posted by on October 30, 2009 | Comments Off on This Is How You Do It: From Dud to Stud

The baby-cougar-cub known as Taylor Swift who had endured a classless break-up with a tentacle of the Jonai beast has moved-on to a bigger, younger man.

Taylor Lautner who is out-muscling and out-acting his twi-peers is now out and about dating the lil’ songstress who once wept for her immature boy-bander. Now we’re not advocating promiscuity or ho-doggin’ but it might serve as a good example to some young chickies and doods out there to note – It ain’t the end of the world when he texts you that it’s so over.

Unlike some 40-somethinger out there who’s less of a cougar and more of a snoozer as she continues to bore us, languishing in her role as a victim, who shall remain nameless (rhymes with Aennifer Janiston).

The More You Know, NM: All Hallows Eve Eve

Posted by on October 30, 2009 | Comments Off on The More You Know, NM: All Hallows Eve Eve

Leave the killer rides to the fright flicks. Call ahead or take a friend…a designated driver is hotter than Megan’s Fox or Brad’s Pitt. A DD is more like a super hero braving the night, keeping his/her wits about them watchin’ their friends act-a-fool and taking pictures to commemorate the festivities.

Some of your area bar’s and lounges may offer a safe ride home like Leo’s on Candelaria in the Q. Otherwise find your local taxi svc. number and plug that lifesaver into your phone!

We salute you DD’s – Now Rock Out Halloweenies!

Crazy Heart Pulls A Pretty Horses

Posted by on October 24, 2009 | One comment

Here’s Colin Farrell filming a scene in the Q, for the Fox Searchlight film Crazy Heart, after a Toby Keith concert back in ’08.

No word yet on when the flick will be released on the big screen. Fox ought point its search light on that info. I haven’t seen a delay in a Nuevo Mexico release date of this duration since the Spring ’99 wrap of ATPH with a Christmas 2000 release.

We hope Collin isn’t relegated to the DVD bin like the ill fated J. Lo flick where downtown doubled for Juarez. I don’t think it was the Q’s acting that did that one in….Did we ever get paid for that one???

For M.D. – “I told my father we were lovers.”

Upstage, Downstage, Soundstage, NM

Posted by on October 23, 2009 | One comment

While we as a state continue to wait for our anointment as #3 in North America for film production, by the EC bible of the biz, cities and towns within toil and angle for center stage.

While Socorro has made its mark in NM’s Big Picture arena with nearly a dozen shoots at the Very Large Array alone, Las Cruces City Councilors along with Alamogordo, Deming and Tularosa Mayors are raising their collective voices to continue the spread of movie making dollars further south.

Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Taos, Las Vegas, Madrid and beyond have all been featured and are poised on the casting couch to be tapped for more starring roles.

Sitting pretty, with no shortage of state of the art studios and soundstages including Albuquerque’s Q Studios, Soundstage41, Elixir Studios +, and Production Companies a plenty, NM has its hold on the New Hollywood sash.

Try as they might (Iowa, Michigan, et al), New Mexico is winning the crown.


New Black Book

Posted by on October 23, 2009 | Comments Off on New Black Book

Our last livre recommendation was Think Like a Man Act Like a Lady, by Steve Harvey. This quarter’s selection too asks readers to ‘think’.

Tracy Morgan’s I Am The New Black takes you through a basic human interest story where the commonalities between us, not based on race or class, but the simple sense of self that either drives us to succeed or to self-destruct, is all we really have or need to work with to move forward and upward.

Morgan recounts that woes no matter how bleak and triumphs so fleeting are ultimately not wholly defining. It’s a good think, dare I say even inspirational while easily read and entertaining. It’s his story but it’s all our lives that are poised for the sculpting – leaving one but to ask, what will I carve out today?

Health, Home & Fashion On the Cheap

Posted by on October 22, 2009 | 2 comments

Eats – The Euros call us Ugly Americans for a reason. It’s probably not so much visual as culpable. The diet on the cheap tip o’ the day is the simple, extremely inconvenient truth that we need to eat right. Above is our personal favorite diet/lifestyle tool.

If we can get it square on the little round plate with whole grains, some veg, protein, and good dairy, we feel better, look better and most importantly when we do indulge in that chocolate cupcake, carne adovado burrito, and/or cheesy pizza pie, the little plate is still all it takes.

Clean – Essential oils indeed. You can use ’em for almost EVERYTHING. Air freshener, cleansers, furniture polish. They run from between $3-$7 at your local granola store or herbal vitamin depot. Just a few drops in good ol’ H20 make all of the non-toxic potions above that last and last.

Pam – Not just for pedicures anymore. ©Sindication proudly presents – Butter Jeans™. Whether you waste your money splurge on $200 denim or get the $8 clearance jeans from the junior section at Wal-Mart, you can keep the color in your pants (punny) with grandma’s cooking spray.

A light oil spray, a spin in the dryer, followed with laundering in mild soap, like a body wash or other non degreasing cleaners will keep your denim colored for-like-ever!

Dear Boys,

Tis the season (it comes earlier every year)…from Christmas, to New Year’s Eve straight through to Valentine’s Day she may be anxiously awaiting “The Ring”. Those are the top three dates when she will be anticipating the possibility of “The Ring”.

You are also treading the waters of expectation around your anniversary and her birthday – No matter if she says she’s not that kind of girl, she swears she doesn’t need it or want it, EVEN if you’ve agreed on not going in that direction anytime soon…

I personally guarantee from approx. 3 months into the relationship on – it crosses at least a teeny-tiny portion of her mind now and then AND “The Ring” industry knows this. Notice the amped up ads, they will keep churning out from the aforementioned time through at least Valentine’s day. Good luck.

Helpful hints:
1. A ring is always a nice gift – you don’t have to propose à la ABC’s Bachelor.
2. There is a Recession going on right now, so you can lean on that to conserve on rock size.
3. Just rent ‘Blood Diamond

Obtuse Is the New Charming

All my Single Ladies,

We’ve all known, do know or will know a charming guy. Most apt to seek out and be wounded by a charming guy are those of us fathered by one.

Their prowess in “charm” has likely been honed over many years and many women. Sure they know the coolest places to go and can be fun at parties – but believe me, charm a solid partner does not make.

So remember the next time a “charmer” sidles up to you at Yanni’s you’re better off running across the street to Astro-Zombies to find yourself a good man.

Lesson Learned – Charming means, “I’m cheating on you.”


Ummmmmmmm, hello – Reality calling, Action PLEASE pick-up! American media is flooded with adverts. and controversy about Plan B, Yaz, Essure, Gardasil, Ortho Evra, Norplant, etc., etc. that can lead to a whole host of adverse side effects and serious medical complications for women.

With all the good and some of the bad that comes along with these options, fact is so much of the responsibility, hardship and blame for the spoils of America’s recklessness towards sexuality falls squarely onto women.

We see women targeted and speaking about abstinence, protection and health. Where the heck are the American dumb-stick ads? Men have Maxim, Axe, and now *cough*bullcrap* Pfizer steps-up to bat with free GD Viagra.

This issue is an overflowing diaper full of crap that ~everyone is ignoring – It’s only gonna stank worse and worse as time goes by. The above ad is out of freaking Zimbobwei or something – that’ll be the day when a male, “take responsibility for your own junk” ad hits the airwaves here in the states of growing un-civilization. God forbid we talk about man parts unless it’s about making them happy.
