Everything Must Go, NM

Posted by on January 30, 2010 | 2 comments

UPDATE: NM lost this production to AZ.

“…we were locked into the West Coast. We couldn’t afford to shoot in LA. Washington was too rainy. New Mexico has really good tax credits, but it was cold in March and there weren’t grass lawns. So we went to Arizona.”
Director, Dan Rush

The new Will Farrell led, independent comedy Everything Must Go is scheduled to film in New Mexico in March.

The Poduction is currently casting for the role of Kenny Loftus: African-American or Latino, overweight, 11 yr. old male. Applicants ages 10-15 accepted.

Kenny is “naive, inquisitive, intelligent, and honest, the kid who tries to stay invisible at school so he won’t get teased…”

Award winning casting team Joanna Colbert & Rich Mento (Dear John, Post Grad) set to cast.

Colbert & Mento Casting
9720 Wilshire Blvd.

NM Film Yesterday, Today y Mañana

Posted by on January 29, 2010 | Comments Off on NM Film Yesterday, Today y Mañana

Yesterday – but for a moment did we have the incomparable Laurie Metcalf in our midst whilst she starred in the short lived CW series Easy Money in the 08-09 t.v. season.

Today – Saint John of Las Vegas starring Steve Buscemi and Sarah Silverman opens in limited release.

Mañana – The UK based horror kings of Hammer Films are set to release two frightfully, suspenseful thrillers, The Resident and Let Me In later this year.

New Hollywood, NM

Posted by on January 28, 2010 | One comment

The John B. Robert Dam in the NE Heights has been in NM Productions from Terminator Salvation to Gamer as of late. Like the 6th Street Bridge in Los Angeles of Old Hollywood where the famed Grease finale race scene was shot.

The notoriously paparazzi ridden, star enticing L.A. hang-out The Ivy sits on Robertson Blvd. and serves as the backdrop for many entertainers photo ops and fan ops to sneak a peek at some of their favorite celebs.

Unlike the singularly located Ivy, New Hollywood’s café of choice, Flying Star has multiple sites in our sprawling cityscape and beyond where hipsters, artists, families and even NM’s Own version of a Hem and Fitz may cross paths in their genius.

I’m ’bout to publish every damn line of the book…just like back in the 5th grade when I got suspended for reading it in class, hidden inside otra libro/the class text book because I could not put it down:

“What really knocks me out is a book, when you’re all done reading it, you wished the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 3

“The thing with kids is, if they want to grab for the gold ring, you have to let them do it, and not say anything. If they fall off, they fall off, but it’s bad if you say anything to them.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 25

“If you had a million years to do it in, you couldn’t rub out even half the ‘F*** you’ signs in the world. It’s impossible.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 25

“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around – nobody big, I mean – except me. And I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff – I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That’s all I do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 22

“I was the only one left in the tomb then. I sort of liked it, in a way. It was so nice and peaceful.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 25

Toyota Motor Corp. has just halted sales of their vehicles in the whole of the U.S. and Europe. Following last week’s recall of top selling models due to an accelerator pedal defect – with no solution in sight.



Ma Huckleberry Says: Remember the Alamo

Posted by on January 26, 2010 | 5 comments

Val Kilmer may not be aiming for the top seat in New Mexico state government but he does kick-it in his adopted home state and even lobbies for the industry that made him.

Today ma’ Huckleberry was at the Roundhouse to speak with opponents of El Majico‘s film tax incentives, regaling them and KOB-TV with a riviting tale about how Bill Gates was turned away from the Q back in the 70’s when he was looking for a $15K loan for his NM trademarked start-up Microsoft.

Post8: Player vs. Game Edition

Posted by on January 25, 2010 | One comment

On a related note…Hail the reigning Man Slut: Gerry Butler. Is that so wrong?

The Ger-man has been kicking butt and taking tail all over the world since he became many a moviegoers fantasy lover in 300.

As of late he’s been linked to everyone he passes including Post8 regular Jenny Aniston and a very flattered TMZ photog.

Any-whogives-aflock, leave the guy to his paramours! If you’re with a gamer you know it, unless you’re pobrecita Elin Nordegren.

Parasites like Tiger Woods, John Edwards and Heidi Montag are sucking all the fun out of gossip by perpetrating actual heinous acts.

If Gerry’s living life like a pervy old coot while the gettins good, without dragging a wife and kids into the fray, leave him alone…unless he winks at you.  That’s an open invite ;)

Vote for Gerry in New Mexico’s Golden Tumbleweed Awards for his 2009 NM Film Gamer.

Extreme Job Swap Makeover: Burque Edition

Posted by on January 25, 2010 | Comments Off on Extreme Job Swap Makeover: Burque Edition

Harry Winston Brooks‘ people have spoken and he is retained as the Albuquerque Public School District head honcho through 2013.

Brooks’ salary package holds steady at more than $250K with an APS budget deficit looming at over $11M, classroom level solutions such as staff cuts – whereby teachers with seniority may be extended the honor of staying at a pay decrease with an added workload to make-up for the cuts, being knocked around, and recent APS administrative glitches such as this Summer’s $16M FUBAR.

Even my only half-lived Catholic school education tells me, “that ain’t right!”

While Task Forces and Czars abound an astronomical APS bond and mill levy is coming-up February 2, I think it’s time for a casting-call in addition to casting our votes.

At minimum we’d like to see an RFB (Request For Bid) opened in the name of manning the APS budget and structure. A bid would at least contain a plan and a proposed budget which is more than we can say for NM’s Own Harry Winston.

Therefore, maybe a manwife, unemployed genius, or your local tradesperson would have more success cleaning-up the APS budget since the only thing currently cleaning up is Brooks’ bank account.
