The plucky young actress first brought to our attention in the twenty first century teen dramedy SUPER BAD, Emma Stone and her self proclaimed more jaded, more seasoned comedic counterpart Kathleen Madigan.
Upper lip drawn taught, stiff as they speak-up & speak-out in their respective fields, both ladies are clever, witty, raven haired & sharp nay silver tongued – and that is why I’m a fan of ‘em both!
Check this rare video of video of Madigan on the defunct (then refunct), Tonight Show with Jay Leno as brought to you by me via the now defunct KASA Fox 2 Interactive Report, in which she classically explains what would’ve given our own El Majico a successful run at the presidency back in ’08:
Kathleen’s comedy is streaming on Netflix in Gone Madigan and her wet eared look alike Emma Stone brings it in both Zombieland (3:5 hubs points) and Easy A (which totally held up right up until the las 10-15 min.) and is currently filming Spiderman with not Logan Lerman.
With an impressive margin NM Actor, Steven Ray Byrd takes the title of, Voted Favorite Local. Every Actor nominated is a favorite of ours and we’re very thankful to have had such a strong response in votes across the board! And especially happy to have received several write-in nominations so that we can cover even more local talent!
Sweeping the write-in votes in her category and the entire poll over all, Christian-Rhen Stefani too took a strong lead and the top ranking as Favorite Local Actress in this year’s Golden Tumbleweed Awards Polling.
Congratulations to both these local faves and much love to all those nominated and recognized. Can’t wait to learn more about all the amazing talent in front of and behind the camera! Go New Mexico!

UPDATE 9/29/11, TIMES THERE AIN’T MUCH A-CHANGIN’: The New York Times reports that THIS year’s U.S. / Mexico Border Conference hasn’t improved much upon last year’s conference non grata, with only ONE, count ‘er, ONE U.S. Governess in attendance…full story here.
Hot off the presses or wherever ~news comes from these days – El Majico a.k.a. Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson has agreed to host this year’s annual Governor’s border conference which has been canceled by Arizona Gov. you-know-who (the zexy, secretly Latin loving Jan Brewer) amid many pending, threatened or implied AZ boycotts by US and Mexican factions of this and other AZ events over the you-know-what (highly controversial AZ immigration law recently passed by that zexy b*tch Brewer).
With a whole host of border town/state issues requiring attention this the 27th annual border conference, to be held in September, is “structured” to serve as a forum for participants to share information, better relations, advance problem solving and decrease tension.
But tension is on the rise as Arizona and Texas (R & R) Gov’s state they will not attend. A stance stuck in mud perhaps to show/hold strong posturing on the issue as they are heading into re-election bids.
Can Rodney Lindsay stay off crack? Guess the answer is the same to both questions…
Of course we can count on the soon to be exiting stage right Governator of CA to attend.
BONUS: Attending Employers are to provide no less than 10 paid positions ea. with approx. 70 employers scheduled to participate – health care, retail, corrections, casino, communications and more fields and industries represented.
Harry Winston Brooks is open to suggestion to save the terminal congestion that is the underfunded, over administrated, blood red APS ~budget. Tonight’s scheduled town hall meeting for the communal grasping of proverbial straws for ideas on how to fix the school district’s money woes, affecting thousands of students and educators has been canceled. Brooks is asking the community he works for to touch-type their ideas on the APS website, just in case some/one of us might bring more than a bandaid or a sweeping chopping block to the tableau.
The Duke too is announcing his economic recovery plans for the city, and is on record asking that us pilgrims, “come to the table“.
Good thing El Majico has worked so hard to put New Hollywood New Mexico on the entertainment map, so much so that the Duke has inherited the #1 city in the country for television and film production. The entertainment industry is one of the few industries that is in the black and in fact reporting profits in these here, “tough economic times.”
Maybe a good screenwriter can pen a solid, state economic recovery plan set in the school district – Hey, the Emmy winning series Breaking Bad has wrapped season three. Get them there cast & crew on the task, pilgrim.
NBC’s hit reality series The Biggest Loser has its sights set on the Land of Enchantment.
The show is currently conducting a nationwide search for season 10 contestants:
“Are you outgoing with personality? Do you have the WANT, DESIRE, AND COMPETITIVE EDGE to vie for this once in a lifetime opportunity to change your life forever and compete for $250,000?”
Individually OR with a partner interested parties with at least 100 lbs. to spare are encouraged to apply.
Register and download your application to be considered here.
Of course the stakes are really high this upcoming season on sur-reality TV, as NM’s Own Big Benny Radio is predestined to win both this contest and that of the previous post…’cause he’s America’s Biggest Next el Majico.
Val Kilmer may not be aiming for the top seat in New Mexico state government but he does kick-it in his adopted home state and even lobbies for the industry that made him.
Today ma’ Huckleberry was at the Roundhouse to speak with opponents of El Majico‘s film tax incentives, regaling them and KOB-TV with a riviting tale about how Bill Gates was turned away from the Q back in the 70′s when he was looking for a $15K loan for his NM trademarked start-up Microsoft.
As the sun begins to set on the office of El Majico (formerly known as The Commerce Secretary of Hearts, a.k.a. The People’s Governor), we’d like to start the new year and a new feature by naming him our mas caliente, numero uno, scorcher on our Scoville’s Scale of Separation.
Governor Richardson easily takes the top spot highlighting the heat of a prominent, public personality who promotes and furthers the entertainment industry in New Mexico.
You cannot get hotter than being a New Mexican, living in New Mexico, holding its top public office and driving the entertainment industry train lo these many years.
Below is a chart for your reference where you can see that on the Scoville Scale of Heat the mighty Bhut Jolokia chile ranks just under U.S. Law Enforcement Grade Pepper Spray – that’s our Majico.
The mighty-movie-star BP would reach his Scoville ranking via the following equation:
Brad Pitt + Goerge Clooney = Ocean’s 11-13 + George Clooney = Men Who Stare at Goats = New Mexico
Brad achieves 3 Scoville’s of Separation to Nuevo México – and we will strive to show you that nary will the “human web” take you further than 6 Scoville’s from NM.
