Will Fo do Mo’ ???

Posted by on February 19, 2010 | Comments Off

Albuquerque native Fo Porter was visibly peeved upon her departure from the ongoing dram-saga known as America’s Next Top Model…

However there’s an ever growing list of off-the-top finishers on these competitive sur-reality shows that end-up out working and out earning their ‘superiors’.

Here’s Fo struttin’ it in a national ad campaign for Payless.

Though Fo has absconded to the coast she hails from the Q.

Let’s follow and support our girl whether she’s peddling pumps, chasing her Brady, or heading back to the newest, best place to work in entertainment.

Really?

Update: McCormack gives back – and the bulk of the IPS cast & crew have come out in support of their host state. Nichole Hiltz? Eh…this clip of her still really chaps my hide, you?

The above videos have recently been circulating of In Plain Sight ~stars Mary McCormack and Nichole Hiltz bashing the town that feeds ‘em.

©Sindication is launching a campaign to urge USA Network and the reps for both Hiltz and McCormack to do something positive for the community in which they’ve been lucky enough to be working.

In stark contrast, AMC’s Emmy winning series Breaking Bad gives back to NM all the while they are here: fundraising, featuring local wares and literally giving their life’s blood for their work.

Starz series Crash works feeding & clothing the homeless.

Megan Fox and Shai Lebeouf even look out for our area animal friends. (So, bite it Chelsea)

Join our Facebook group to speak out for your town.

Hear the controversy and feedback from McCormack herself on The Peak Morning Show today: 100.3 KPEK

UPDATE: Mac has taken to her twit account to ask her new friends at the Peak to play this two year old clip of her talking to a local t.v. station sans trash talk.

We say actions speak louder than old words and we’re asking Mac & Co. to donate to JTD’s upcoming Radiothon benefitting UNM Children’s Hospital and furthermore put some time in with The Storehouse ABQ.

On March 13 the community of Bosque Farms is rallying in support of the veteran airman. There will be a fundraiser at the Bosque Farms Rodeo Arena from noon to 7 p.m. that will include:

* Live Auction * Raffles * Door Prizes * Little League Exhibition * Car Show * Kids Jumpy *Patriot Guard Riders +

NM Film Yesterday, Today y Mañana

Posted by on February 16, 2010 | One comment

Okay, so we’re back. We have no big, breaking info-tainment haps for you other than the news that that VD movie took #1 at the weekend box office. But here’s your all important dose of NM Film Yesterday, Today y Mañana…


Yesterday – Filmfest feature film fave Coyote County Loser shot in Roswell, NM. Billed as a “romantic comedy for the loser in all of us”, the film is currently in limited release and features NM’s Own Nelson Martinez.


Today – As we’ve been reporting, Knockout starring the pectacular Channing Tatum + is currently in production.

T’was just last week that Channing knocked Avatar out of the top spot with Dear John.

Above – a quick clip of the film shooting on the streets of Dublin last week. (Via OLV)


Mañana – Nicola Peltz (The Last Airbender) is slated to work w/ R. Patz in the upcoming indie The Unbound Captives. Start the novenas for homegirl’s safety now. There’s probably already an entire line of voodoo dolls in the little lady’s likeness à la crazed Twilightiacs.

From Eli to Akira

Posted by on February 10, 2010 | Comments Off

Directors of the New Mexico production The Book of Eli, brothers Allen and Albert Hughes, have announced they will undertake the live action adaptation of the graphic novel “Akira”.

Scripted by Mark Fergus and Hawk Otsby (Iron Man) the post-apocalyptic saga centers around Kaneda, the leader of a biker gang who must stop his friend, the deadly Tetsuo from his own insanity to save the lives of all around them.

The ’82 novel has already been a cult success as a feature length anime film directed by author Katsuhiro Otomo in ’88. The new film is already set to be one of two installments.

Now who does post-apocolyptic better than NM? Here’s hype-perbole, hoping the bros will be back with their Akira.

Zum Film “Passion Play” ist nun ein erstes Bild von Megan Fox (“Transformers”) und Mickey Rourke (“The Wrestler”) erschienen. Es ist zwar keine große News, aber zeigt zumindest dass die Dreharbeiten in New Mexico voran schreiten. -Movie Reporter

”I was confronting the fact that at that time I lacked a little bit of spirituality, I’d neglected that side of my life.” He began meditating and spending more time at his ranch in the middle of the desert in New Mexico. ”Nature is the place where I can usually feel that kind of connection to the universe. That’s where I’m probably the most comfortable of all, being alone – I’m not someone who is particularly social, even though you wouldn’t know that.” -Tom Ford via The Age, Australia

Entre Luna Nueva y Eclipse, que filmó Remember Me, una película romántica dramática. En febrero voy a empezar en Budapest Bel Ami, con Uma Thurman y Kristin Scott Thomas.

NM Shows at the Super Bowl

Posted by on February 8, 2010 | One comment

UPDATE: Kendra Wilkinson is “reportedly” in hysterics over the Colts loss, even halting production of her show today. Editor’s note: Players on the winning team get a $73,000 bonus. Players on the losing team receive a $38,000 bonus – Hello, Reality? Perspective calling. Says, “Look at me!”

NM’s Own Hank Baskett alters the course of the Bowl in this moment when the former UNM Lobo had a tragic Colts encounter with the Saints onside kick.

Hank recently starred in the E! television network reality show “Kendra” with his wife, former Girls Next Door Star Kendra Wilkinson. The second season of the show is currently in production.

On the less humbled side of the field, fellow reality tv star Kim Kardashian (ashamed I know who she is and how to spell her name) places a staged, for the cameras impassioned kiss on her publicity stunt beau, New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush after the win.
