The only lesson I remember from the J. Jonah Jamesonesque sales manager whose tutelage I was once under in brief is this, “There are 52 new years in 12 months”. Accidentally valuable words he probably learned in a seminar, but tired words are often the truest.
So among the myriad of dietary supplements, plethora of exercise equipment, wide array of financial investment advice and mountains of self help books sure to be thrust upon you in the coming months in answer to all your life’s (nay the world’s) problems, rest assured that every moment (24 hours a day, 52 weeks a year) is yours and with ea. one you can simply choose “something”.
Yes, from high atop my glass soap box I declare THIS (above) to be the best website ever! Like a modern day version of the three letter sentence scrawled across that art gallery ceiling back in 1966, you may find both to be your allies in 20102011 2012.
Here’s to you and to many, many somethings and yeses in your future.
Because after all when you find yourself in a pinch most of your quandaries can be solved if you just utilize one or the other of these two positive sentiments in the moment:
The New Mexico production, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen racked-up righteous box office numbers, made it into the Guinnes Book of World Records and has now been named the best action film of the year.
In the same poll conducted by Movie Fone dot com, the perpetually Nuevo México filming Megan Fox ranks as both the sexiest and the worst actress of 2009.
Our final pick of the year to run head to head with Old Hollywood players is this authentic New Mexican, Ms. Meghan Lowery has got the ~name and certainly got the look!
We hope that she and our other NM’s Own of ’09 get their fair share of our New Hollywood status in the New Year!

Casting agent Jo Edna Boldin, CSA
is currently scouting New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado for the still open, “star making” role of Cassie in the upcoming Coen brothers True Grit film.
Online auditions have been extended through January 20. This role is just WAITING for NM talent…
The entertainment industry may bring us a lot of things and you may not think ‘work ethic’ is one of ’em.
But who do you know that’s gettin’ paid for work they did over two years ago? Matt Mac laid this shoot down back in ’07, it’s just now landing stateside along with continued revenue for the hunky Texan.
So whether you’re nosing to a grindstone you don’t like, chasing what seems like an elusive dream…someday your version of endorsement, residual or royalty checks will roll in.
Matt Mac didn’t just swagger onto that Gabbana set and make this bank for his growing brood…he’s come a long way from Guy #2 in My Boyfriend’s Back circa 1993.
Quote of the day re: golden globes goes to my all time favorite blah, blah, blogger:
“If Meryl sat in front of a web cam, and recited from Chris Brown’s now-defunct Twitter account while wearing an “I Love Tiger Woods” half-shirt, she’d still get a nomination.” – Michael K. on Meryl Streep’s two nominations today.
New Mexico hits the list of feature film nominees three times with NM’s Own Pretty Woman nominated for her role in Duplicity, Tobey Maguire in Brothers and Jeff Bridges for Crazy Heart – both filmed here in NM.
New Mexico takes television nods with the NM production of Georgia O’Keefe for best mini, Joan Allen and Jeremy Irons for respective roles in that series. NM’s Own Neil Patrick Harris for How I Met Your Mother and ABC’s Modern Family starring NM native Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
For the complete list of 2010 nominees, including Meryl’s double dip for Julie & Julia and It’s Comlicated, click here.
Lee Daniels who made a largely unsung impact with his 2008 production of the New Mexico/TN drama Tennessee, brings his developing directorial chops and the return of Mariah in a successfully serious role to the Oscar buzzing film Precious.
A Single Man, in limited release Dec. 11, is the directorial debut of Tom Ford, whom since heading the Gucci empire based in New York for over a decade, has returned to his childhood roots in New Mexico. The designer turned director is racking up positive reviews and high hopes for this and future films he may add to his collection.

Don’t forget to get your tribal on in the local tryouts for Survivor here in Nuevo México in Jan.
