Retail sales, barbeques & swimming pools – In Memoriam

Posted by on May 30, 2011 | Comments Off on Retail sales, barbeques & swimming pools – In Memoriam

If you hold anything dear or near to your heart, you know importance
If you are able to express what is important to you, surely you value that
When what you value is yours to hold – you protect it
When what you love and protect stands-up to preserve and protect the masses
You know sacrifice and bravery
And when your sacrifice is taken you know loss
For every sunrise sacrificed, for every sunset apart
Your gifts of heart, are not forgotten
And your Brave are the true heroes of peace and justice

– Thank you

He’ll Be Ba-ack, NM Style

Posted by on May 19, 2011 | One comment

UPDATE: Your Abuelas and maids appear to be safe for now NM.

“Governor Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines. This includes Cry Macho, The Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Governor Schwarzenegger decides.” – Representative Statement

Termin-NO New Mexico…more from the category of politics colliding with art, colliding with scandal, landing in New Mexico.

Remember back in the day when Schwarzenegger was so lovably stupid and oafish shooting Twins with Danny DeVito in Santa Fe? I bet he’d like us to.

As they say, the show must go on and apparently this holds true of the circus that has become Arnold Schwarzenegger’s life, which will be traveling our way soon. Information about the his next movie is being churned out as public consumption of everything Arnold is at a premium.

How do you say, blah in German? Well in my unspoken language of español I suppose this would warrant an ay yay yay…Annnd español is a language the ex-governator of California may favor or at least be well versed in.

The news is that the disgustinator, cojerk the barebackian Schwarzenegger will be attempting to exercise the language of thespianism again, after his long hiatus from film when the letch’s many interests turned more political than theatrical (at least publicly).

A movie that otherwise may have rolled tape without much ado is already being closely watched thanks to the star’s familial disgrace and betrayal now being made public. Reports are that Schwarzenegger will get to take a New Hollywood turn aquí en Nuevo México.

Umm, can we vote on this?

The Motion Picture Association of New Mexico has posted the New York Times article detailing the plot and history of the forthcoming dramatic film titled Cry Macho.

Production will take place late this summer…

Aye Dios Mio!

IRON MAN has been spotted in the Q.

Like habitual New Mexico movie star Seth Rogen, his fellow funny men and gajillions of Hollywood celebs who take to the hills, whether it be for work or rec, RDJ was getting his hike on in Albuquerque TODAY!

No official word on what Iron Man is here for but gossip abounds that he may be set to shoot his scenes for a little film called THE AVENGERS, duh!

New Mexico Upfront

Posted by on May 18, 2011 | One comment

ABC Family has green lighted their original series The Lying Game, a spin-off of their hit show Pretty Little Liars. Both shows are based on novels by Sara Shepard.

As we told you here the pilot filmed right here in NM! You can thank Susana Martinez for the show up and taking production to Los Angeles – Thank you Susana!

The Lying Game is set to premiere Monday, August 15 on ABC Family.

Also just announced the Longmire television series has been picked by A&E for their upcoming season! Longmire is currently in production in northern NM.

Not fairing so well; CBS jinxed pilot starring Donald Faison, The Odds is never slated to see the light of day. Also not ‘coming soon’ is TNT’s Albuquerque production of The Rabbit Factory – that pilot had teamed DL Hughley with Steven Weber and employed many local cast & crew.

NBC says pass on another newsworthy NM shoot, that of Reconstruction (originally titled The Crossing) which marks strike two in recent TV season up-at-bats for for star Rachelle Lefevre who also led the cast of the highly touted, quickly puttered Off the Map.

Big hitters Breaking Bad and In Plain Sight are currently in production in the Q. The acclaimed A&E and USA network shows are in the midst of their fourth seasons respectively.

If there’s not enough NM on TV for you…because there never is, the revamped Charlie’s Angels series, starring New Mexico’s Own Minka Kelly is on the fall TV schedule where you can still find fellow New Mexicans Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Neil Patrick Harris in their own high falutin, hit TV series’.

Cyphers, NM

Posted by on May 16, 2011 | 2 comments

The New Mexico Museum of Art is co-presenting the launch of the new pilot for CYPHERS, a web series eco drama.

Friday May 27, 2011 6 p.m.
St. Francis Auditorium, in the New Mexico Museum of Art
On the Plaza, Santa Fe, NM

Enter the future of entertainment with the cast and crew of CYPHERS and be a part of this cultural shift in entertainment.

Featuring Bee Shaman McKelvey Dryden and singer songwriter Sean Healen, Panel Discussion with award-winning Director Peter Kershaw and the cast, moderated by Mary Charlotte – Radio Cafe/KSFR.

In conjunction with the New Mexico Museum of Art show Earth NOW, CYPHERS reaches across the globe from the iconic St. Francis Auditorium. Coining a new phrase in entertainment, calling itself an “eco – drama,” CYPHERS cuts an innovative path involving the audience in the exciting technology of internet entertainment. This event invites the audience to be “the first to socialize the story right from their seats in the St. Francis Auditorium and watch as CYPHERS goes live.”

CYPHERS is a web series that reveals the danger that lies just beneath the surface of an average New Mexican town, where serenity and blissful innocence mask a sinister reality. Based on true life controversial corporate stories, CYPHERS reveals a diverse group of conflicted, predominately female characters. All the characters are drawn together by a series of inexplicable phenomena, and must struggle to decipher and expose a dark corporate conspiracy that reaches far beyond their town. The one certainty is that their lives will never be the same again.

Shot as a series of short episodes and broadcast on the World Wide Web, CYPHERS weaves a mystery in the style of “Lost”, “Damages”, and “Twin Peaks” — but with an ecological twist. Each episode reveals another piece of the puzzle with the intent to engage the audience in not only solving the mystery, but to influence and change the way they interact with our food, water and environment. The action takes place in New Mexico, a land rich in mysticism and seemingly far from the clutches of corporate America.

You Talkin to Me? I’m Talkin to You!

Posted by on May 15, 2011 | Comments Off on You Talkin to Me? I’m Talkin to You!

A longtime favorite of OHI, our own personal Goodfella aka Jackamoe Buzzell is getting so big in the entertainment industry that he is unable to meet the expanding, full-time commitment of performing at his speakeasy gig, which leads the screen & feature film actor to present an offer “you can’t refuse”…

If you think you’re ready and able to get your Jackamoe on, answer me this:

Can You Play a Gangster?

Jackamoe Buzzell performs as a gangster at Vernon’s Hidden Valley Steakhouse and needs an understudy. He has performed for 8 straight months without missing one single show.

Due to the success of the Prohibition Era themed restaurant, Vernon’s is expanding with additional dining space as well as a VIP cigar bar and will be opening 7 nights per week instead of being dark on Monday and Tuesday.

Potential understudies must be charismatic with an intimidating edge. The taller the better! Also must have great improvisational skills and be able to do a New York, Chicago or New Jersey accent.

For more information regarding the character, please check out Vernon’s commercial, Jackamoe as a guest on New Mexico Style, Jackamoe’s painting and the recent review in Albuquerque Arts Magazine, p.5.

Please submit your headshot, resume and any additional photos that may be pertinent to: vernonsgangster@yahoo.com

Just Plain Innocent

Posted by on May 14, 2011 | Comments Off on Just Plain Innocent

These two (below) aren’t the only youngins making headlines with the childlike innocence of a first kiss caught on camera.

Two of NM’s Own are set to be featured in their very own “Winnie” Cooper/Kevin Arnold made for TV moment.

When last we saw Jy Prishkulnik here in the 48 Hour Go Green Film Project she was a stand-out (not an easy chore considering the bravado of the lead).

This Sunday night Prishkulnik‘s Wonder Years moment with OHI fave Jack Justice is scheduled to air.

The pair’s on screen ‘kiss’ will mark the first one of its kind for young Justice – and may likely come to brand brains as a rather historic few moments for the young actors.

Tune-in to USA network’s original, Albuquerque based series In Plain Sight to catch the moment. And go to the new http://jackjusticeofficial.com/ to keep up with this rising NM star.

If you’re po’ folk like me watch IPS episodes after they air on payTV here.

Beyond Ambience

Posted by on May 13, 2011 | Comments Off on Beyond Ambience

UPDATE 9/6/11: TONIGHT at the The After After Party, the greatest entertainment showcase in New Mexico, enjoy the good vibrations of Ambient Trash! Get in there – it’s still FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE and thar’s a cash bar!!! Check out the rest of the line-up, location & time here.

UPDATE 8/4/11: ONE NIGHT ONLY! Catch ’em if you can…This Sat. night Ambient Trash at Low Spirits in Albuquerque, NM. Click it!

There’s dinner music, there’s knockin’ boots music and then there’s the all important music in-between…the music to tune the fork to if you will.

I’m not one to claim to have the smarts, book or otherwise, but intuition I got and my intuition about Ambient Trash was that the live show would be an EXPERIENCE and I was so happily right!

Can you spell Crescendo? ‘Cause I can’t but I can feel it and that’s what you’ll do at an Ambient show at the wuthering height of each and every song (and mayhaps if you have a good enough audio system in house ou auto – CDs on sale NOW).

Of the many events we’re fortunate enough to be invited to attend, it’s few and far between that we at OHI are able to attend IRL, and of those few we’re super fortunate to almost always land whale for whale.

This one was a doozy! If you might be interested in achieving the feel of safely sitting on some rhythmic train trax (à la Emily Blunt in NM’s Own Sunshine Cleaning), and seeing some original music performed by musicians who are clearly in it for the love of the game you MUST catch a ride on the Ambient Trash train!

Even the official band wife, who’s surely heard every tune, strum and beat hundreds of times over got her ROCK ON in the audience!

So, if and when you or anyone eh…hmm you know is in need of lil’ hair blowing, bone rattling ROCK tunage, get your LIVE Ambient Trash experience on!

In case you’re not catching my drift let Jackie esplain at the 3:20 mark…
