#NM Who’s the Daddy?!?!

Posted by on May 31, 2010 | 3 comments

Open Call if and in case you have had the lapse of recollection (and all morals and self-respect) over the roughly 4 week window that would lead you to ask yourself the question, “who’s the daddy?”

If you or someone you know fit this criteria and are indeed a candidate to be the spokes model for ©Sindication’s Own campaign of “BIRTHCONTROL 1 of 3 of the components to achieve WORLD PEACE”, you may submit to be rewarded with, “Airfare, dining [and] accommodations…[and] a daily stipend”, to appear in a nationally televised show.

Simply, “submit name, email or telephone number and a little information about why you would be the perfect guest for the show. Please include a photograph or [sic] yourself and your child/children and the potential father if possible”, by June 2, 2010.

“The most outrageous and entertaining candidates will be invited to the final screening on Saturday the 5th.” And this is a contender for the most painful post ever written by your Sindicator [sads].

RIP Dennis Hopper

Posted by on May 29, 2010 | One comment

Legendary Actor Dennis Hopper has passed away.

Just over a week after his 74th birthday, on what Governor Bill Richardson officially declared Dennis Hopper day in New Mexico the beloved actor, director and accomplished artist has succumbed to the cancer he’s been battling since last fall.

Hopper commemorated the fortieth anniversary of his iconic film Easy Rider and celebrated his longtime love of New Mexico at 2009’s Taos Summer of Love where his artwork was showcased in the gallery showing, Hopper at the Harwood.

The actor was promoting his Albuquerque filmed television series Crash in NYC when he first fell ill last September.

He will be greatly missed the world over.

The AP reports:

“Dennis Hopper, the high-flying Hollywood wild man whose memorable and erratic career included an early turn in “Rebel Without a Cause,” an improbable smash with “Easy Rider” and a classic character role in “Blue Velvet,” died Saturday in Venice, Calif., of prostate cancer. He was 74.

Hopper’s roller coaster career also included “Rebel Without a Cause,” “Blue Velvet,” “Apocalypse Now” and “Hoosiers” as well as flops such as “The Last Movie.”

But the improbable success of the 1969 hippie-biker epic “Easy Rider” remained his biggest triumph. He not only co-starred but directed and co-wrote the film, which also starred Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson.

Hopper, Fonda and Terry Southern were nominated for Oscars for best screenplay.”

Mouse in the House: Part Deux, Trois, Quatre

Posted by on May 28, 2010 | 3 comments

New Mexico Mouse in the House

The Walt Disney Company is quietly dotting the state with their mouse ears as the entertainment GIANT’s long reach includes Marvel, ABC and The Disney Channel, all of which are sowing New Mexico roots.

Thor is bound to dominate the big screen next spring, the Q spot is the backdrop for network TV’s Scoundrels starting in June, and the purported next High School Musical, Lemonade Mouth is getting set to employ and roll in New Mexico.

Even ESPN regional television resides in the Mouse House. ESPN happens to operate the New Mexico Bowl – our very own college bowl game, set to air on the national stage ESPN will provide to millions of viewers on December 18 this year.

And as we ~reported here, the Bowl’s title sponsorship is still up for grabs…

If it’s not quite in your budget to buy your own bowl don’t fret, but be sure to dust off your monogrammed mouse ears and put on your perma-smile ’cause NM is poised to join the billion dollar club!

You may have happily taken-in mega hits like Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Jerry Bruckheimer’s G-Force or my personal fave Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs without even knowing from whence these productions sprung.

Why the answer is right here in our own backyard. Since 2007 Sony Imageworks has made a home for itself in the Q.

While we make much-ado about the live action productions aqui we gotta a give a big fat nod to the awesomeness (literally) that is Sony Imageworks.

And they ain’t just animatin’ over thar’. In the video above the first forty Imageworks crew that made the maiden voyage to town tout and tell all about how their doubts dispelled on joining us here in the Duke City.

CivicsGovernmentNMPollYouYour Momma

Unfortunately it is not yet on the call sheet for an actual leading man or woman to helm NM government – though we came close with my beloved El Majico but alas his tenure is up.

There is a hotly contested run to take up the reigns of our state on the Grand Ol’ Party (GOP) side while our resident Lt. Governor, Duchess Diane Denish will run unopposed for the Dems.

In case you don’t know who any of these candidates are here are the two Republican front runners and your Democratic choice:

Diane Denish (D)

Allen Weh (R)

Susana Martinez (R)

On June 1 you have the privilege of casting your vote in the primary election to decide who will run against the Dutchess in November to become the leader of your state.

Stargate U. Young Gun on NM Shoot

Posted by on May 26, 2010 | Comments Off on Stargate U. Young Gun on NM Shoot

Image via Fused Film

This presh young cub, Brian J. Smith reflects on his time filming the SyFy network series Stargate Universe here in NM with the Coventry Telegraph, saying:

“New Mexico was a challenge…with this show, you never know, you could be doing a scene back on Earth, finding your long lost son or something like that, and then you’re in the desert with other actors, looking for some chemical that’s going to save the crazy alien spaceship that you’re on. You never know what you’re going to be doing from month to month on this show, it’s challenging. New Mexico was very, very challenging, but also it was the most exciting thing I’ve ever done in my career. It was like shooting this big action film: They actually put cameras up on helicopters. It was amazing.” – Brian J. Smith

Awwwww, well Bri, we’ll be workin’ on getting more “amazing” projects here to bring you back soon! Maybe the next big superhero flick shot here…

Regression Therapy On the Cheap

Posted by on May 25, 2010 | Comments Off on Regression Therapy On the Cheap

Yesterday we posed the question to our social net pals on both Twitter & Facebook (sorry myspace, i’m just not that into you), “What sandwich makes you feel like a kid again?”

Good ol’ PB & J took it by a landslide! But lots of yummy and some surprising answers came back. The sweetest thing we noticed was how happy people were to answer esp. when their sammie of choice took them back to a memory with a loved one.

So here’s wishin’ you the cheap treat of chomping into YOUR favorite childhood sandwich and letting it take you back to abuelita’s fried bologna, dad’s PB & bannana, or your own chocolate covered fingers!

and p.s. dear grandma, thanks for all those grilled cheese with pickles

Hose Hair Raising Boom Boom POW

Posted by on May 23, 2010 | One comment

Matter of Trust.org

Now these are dreads with purpose. Hair booms are a completely green, renewable resource that sop-up the oily slicks of horror rapidly flowing toward innocent wildlife, habitat, inhabitants and industry of the Gulf.

But the booms themselves are endangered because the organizations that are working tirelessly to help ease this mess are coming-up short hosed.

Your sad, old pantyhose can help rescue the gulf coast. We’ve all got or know someone who has wads of nylons in the very back of their underwear drawer.

Gather-up your grandma’s old medias and hook-up with Matter of Trust dot Org for the complete instructions on how to send ’em in to aid in the mass clean-up required to save our Gulf Coast from the catastrophic (and ongoing) BP oil spill.

And P.S. Calling all NM Alpacas and furry friends. Matter of Trust and Excess Access need all the hair & fur clippings you can muster for their reserves.

Class of 2010 et al

Posted by on May 21, 2010 | Comments Off on Class of 2010 et al

Congratulations to you and your families! Wear that robe with pride, you’ve earned this and so much more!

In memory of your peers who may not have made it to see this day here is a letter from a mother reminding you to take care:

“It may come naturally to think to yourself, “Well it can’t happen to me.” But the simple truth is that anything can happen – from the tragic to the sublime and remembering another simple truth may serve you very well – and that is that every day of your life has value.

Though it’s not possible to know what each new day will bring your way, it is in your hands how you spend it.

My son recently lost a classmate, that family lost a son, a brother, a friend and his future – please please pause a moment during these times of celebrations to take any measure available to you to protect yourself and your chances of seeing another day.

I know there are times, especially in young lives when the whole of the world seems such a mess that a dooms day mentality may prevail, in even the most lighthearted and fun-loving among you. And yes, much of the world is a mess and we don’t know when the pop-culture, big-screen version of an apocalyptic end of the world will come, but I do know how loved ones lost are so terribly missed with every, single passing day.”

Please take care of yourselves and each other if only to see tomorrow.

Each of you and every day of your life is precious. You have so much yet to see and do…celebrate your life in memory of those who have gone too soon.” – A Mom
