NM Centered CD Release

Posted by on August 31, 2010 | Comments Off on NM Centered CD Release

Oscar winner Ryan Bingham and The Dead Horses Band release Junky Star today.

Here’s what the Washington Post had to say about the NM native:

“Junky Star, also produced by [T-Bone] Burnett, isn’t the showy, big-budget career-solidifier it might have been; luckily, it’s precisely the sort of underplayed album Bingham might have made if his Hollywood detour had never happened.

Bingham wraps his hoarse, well-worn voice — the aural equivalent of Marlboros and Levis 501s — around a collection of barroom folk songs that, musically and thematically, cast back to vintage Dylan and, more specifically, “Nebraska”-era Springsteen.” – Allison Stewart

Resident designer, part time director and “rancher” Tom Ford dressed the event’s host, Jimmy Fallon among other nominees, winners and presenters.

Temporary New Mexican Joan Allen, was up for lead actress in her NM film Georgia O’Keeffe which was nominated for Best TV Movie, Art Direction, Best Casting, Best Directing, Best Hairstyling, Best Makeup, Best Music Composition and Best Costumes. – HELLO!

Wilde On Santa Fe

Posted by on August 30, 2010 | 5 comments

With a blog post almost as vast and colorful as our NM vistas, actress Olivia Wilde waxes romantic over the beauty and goodness of our capital city.

The Cowboys and Aliens star regularly tweeted little glimpses of her observations and experiences these many months of filming in the Land of Enchantment and she bids us adieu in this quaint novella where she wraps with:

“I have really enjoyed my experience in Santa Fe, and there is so much more I could write about (maybe I will) but for now, consider this a love letter to the above mentioned ingredients to my happy summer in my latest home away from home.”

Thank you Miss Wilde for the love letter that leaves us so much warmer and fuzzier than the the online morning after cab fair on the nightstand that is a Tweety-bye-bye.

Don’t forget to join our quest to get the likes of Cowboys back to NM for a local premiere gala!

High Midnight, NM

Posted by on August 27, 2010 | One comment

Another gory Horror for NM? We can dream. It is being ~reported that the upcoming vampire, western, horror High Midnight will shoot in New Mexico late this year or early next.

Cast in the lead is Vincent D’Onofrio whom I just saw taking an adorably gross turn in the original MIB wearing himself as a skin suit (memmer?), but nothing can touch his sickness in one of the only two good Jennifer Lopez movies, The Cell.

William Baldwin and sexpot Elizabeth Hurley will also star. Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary, Urban Legends 3) is set to direct.

“Unforgiven” meets “Bram Stoker’s Dracula.” The story centers on a washed up sheriff who joins forces with an obsessed Victorian vampire hunter in order to stop an evil undead force from consuming a frontier town in 1892.

Tagline: In the Wild West a lot of blood was spilled… but it didn’t go to waste.

Ummmm, HELLO!

Posted by on August 25, 2010 | 4 comments

Ummmmm okay, so WWE makes movies – I did not know this. And it looks like before this hawt former wrestler hits the city otro vendrá…

WWE’s latest production, currently titled Blood Brothers is slated for a 2012 release. The movie is set to shoot in the Q starting in early October. Woot!

John Cena (uh, humina humina, above) will star in the story of three brothers, a Police Officer (Cena), a Bail Bondsman and a thief seeking a reward the FBI has offered for the return of a kidnapped American billionaire being held in a Mexican dungeon (because we play that and the apocalypse so well).

The PW Insider exclusively reports that this is the first WWE film…that has not been shot in New Orleans (one of our top competitors in film production).

As always more deets to follow, ollow, ollow…

Here’s the cute, muscley goodness on hosting duty at TMZ just a few weeks ago: (¡Bienvenida a Albuquerque!)

Memaws and Abuilitas from coast to coast can rejoice at the answered prayers from the sky in Nuevo México from yesterday’s rain storm.

Local DJ “Dex” Toth from none-other than The EDGE gets an other worldly response when he prompts his brood to harken the LORD!

Shazam! Ride the biblical proportions lightening! Oh my Geesus even made it onto the local news (well, their web extries anyway)! Take that burnt toast Jesus!
