Where Are They Now?

Posted by on August 18, 2011 | One comment

Since wrapping things up here in The Land of ‘secluded’ Enchantment back in late July The Avengers have taken-up in Cleavland as scheduled.

This is set video from earlier in the week of some downtown demolition as orchestrated for the sure to be action-packed flick.

And from the online imps who post pirated theater footage here is the film’s extended teaser trailer as it rolled at the conclusion of Captain America: The First Avenger last month.

The New Mexico/Ohio production will open wide next spring!

Not Your Kids’ Ho-Hum Vampire

Posted by on August 18, 2011 | Comments Off

Fright Night feels much fresher than a lot of what has come down studio pikes this summer. – Cinema Blend

Just when it seems that every other young Hollywood actor is donning vampire garb, along comes Colin Farrell to show ‘em how it’s done.
- Variety

This decent remake of the ’80s vampire favorite should satiate horror fans. – The Hollywood Reporter

Remake of classic horror flick is killer blend of cheese and snark.
- N.Y. Daily News

Re-’Vamped’ ‘Fright Night’ Boasts Plenty of Scary Bites. – Fox News

‘Fright Night’ is Slick, Sinister and Playful. – Film School Rejects

Farrell’s Frightening, Ferocious, Fangs Saves ‘Fright Night’ Reboot! – Star Pulse

As vampire movies go, Fright Night is a pretty good one. – Roger Ebert, Chronicle Herald

Better still, in Roger’s review he inadvertently gives NM high praise as not only a believable Las Vegas locale but describes the setting as at least somewhat integral to the plot ;)

$2.5M NM Contract AVAILABLE

My friends {sarcasm} at The New Mexico Department of Tourism say nay to the re-upping of contracts with advertising co. M&C Saatchi of Los Angeles and PR firm Development Counsellors International of New York to rep. NM.

State Tourism Secretary Monique Jacobson has announced that a NATIONAL search will get underway next week for the state’s approx. $2.5M annual contract to sell NM to the world!

“The ad contract will be for about $2.5 million a year, and the public relations contract will be for about $120,000, both of which are roughly in line with what the department pays now for the services…Because of our limited budget, ideas matter most. We are looking for folks who really get the essence of what we believe is New Mexico.” – Jacobson to the AP

Of course we have to ask – Who knows New Mexico like New Mexico? The request for proposals (RFPs) for these two hot tickets is expect
to go out next week with the full campaign slated for debut early next year!

We will update you here with where and how to apply – if you’re New Mexico and you want to toss your 2 cents into this multi-million dollar decision CONTACT the department and ask them to keep this J-O-B local!

Previous campaigns have left NM languishing at the #38 spot in the country as a tourist destination – we can do better. Just say Middle Mexico, USA no more.

I’m lovin’ it! New Mexico Style

Posted by on August 18, 2011 | Comments Off

Thanks Mike Cee

Well knock me down with a golden, crispy french fry!

The Golden Arches’ commercial goodness that rings so true and near & dear to my carotid artery filled heart (not really, I hope), a spicy version of the jingle that entices the world over to that all American treasure boasts New Mexico’s golden, chameleon voice singing its praises!

That’s right the hottest version of the McDonald’s all time best jingle, “I’m lovin’ it!” is vocalized by New Mexico’s own James Douglas! You know him, he’s the front man of a lil’ local gone global band, the amazing, the mesmerizing, the one and only…THE JAMES DOUGLAS SHOW!!!

Listen to it HERE!
