Not since Deney Terrio threw on Joe Picopo’s Dead Heat mullet wig for pickups in the Flashdance finale was there this much hullabaloo over exactly whose’s bits are doing what during an on-screen dance saga.
The Ballerina who stood-in for Natalie Portman for the highly contested, yet to be determined percentage of her dance routines during Black Swan continues to level claims that accounts of Natalie’s dance abilities are greatly exaggerated. Portman’s choreographer/fiancee, director, and co-stars are coming to her defense. WTFC? CNN, really?
Hos and cinema are much more technologically savvy these days. There may very well be better worked, more hard fought battles during post-production that don’t scream at the audience, like the barely computer generated ~graphics work on Kate Bosworth, in the legendary Blue Crush, that they are only barely trying to play magic tricks on our eyes for the price of admission (plus the cost of 3D glasses in some cases).
However, such advances may also be one reason why a scorned woman’s wrath could too be on the rise in its reach and potency.
And whatever the hell is in the craw of this trick Sarah Lane it doesn’t seem like it’s going to stop until God knows what vindication is hers.
Me thinks a certain ballerina really needs to up her daily dosage of surely already high fiber and let classic dances lie (you too J-Lo, oops too late).

Audit this: While Los Angeles scrambles to intice productions back from us, other states Hot on our Boot Heel and yet others stalling like Arizona, Massachusets and Iowa, New Mexico who currently ranks NUMBER ONE in the country for film making and third in ALL OF NORTH AMERICA, is presented with a dangerous proposal from our new leader.
If Dennis the Menace down in Roswell gets his way our tax incentive program will be eliminated all together and if Governor Susana Martinez can’t see that pushed through she’s working the 10% decrease angle. It’s a tumultuous mix of options being thrown into the wind that will blow New Mexico’s promising future as an Entertainment Capital out of here like Silicon Valley.
The numbers can be manipulated to high heaven in favor of decreasing the incentives and with that rot down the hell of disillusionment and hopelessness unto the impassioned and currently employed and empowered people of New Mexico who have fought and worked so hard to see the fruits of the Industry begin to flourish here.
We cannot allow Texas or any other state to turn New Mexico into their cotton picking, chile peeling back lot. There are entire industries riding on this wave of SUCCESS the film industry has just begun to afford New Mexicans.
From Food Service, Lighting, Set Construction & Decorating to of course the stars of the New Mexico desert there are jobs in this here Entertainment Industry.
Not to mention that when that caravan we call Hollywood rolls into to town, they eat, sleep, and SPEND. From Real Estate to $20,000 hotel bills, productions BUY.
Productions also GIVE – give back to the communities that they’re living and working in here. From donations to investments of their time. Productions make improvements to area homes, establishments, and even outdoor spaces where they film. Casts and Crews get out into the community enriching and inspiring civic duty.
And do you know how much air-time costs? Well New Mexico gets global peeps and props that money couldn’t buy because of the big names and productions that come. Whether they fail or fall – we couldn’t have purchased the amount of global recognition we get from the State’s current status as a leader in Film.
…do you think all of these peripherals are being taken into account by any existing audit?
Let’s face it sometimes a production will just NEED a crate of hair spray and a vat of vaseline – ours is not to question why…ours is but to let them BUY.
Spa days, shopping sprees, car service, room service YOUR SERVICE. Let’s keep our doors open for business and let ‘em keep pickin-up the check!
Finally, keep it for the kids – We all know that New Mexico Education is in trouble. But, we also know that Film & Production keeps our kids OUT of trouble. From Clovis to Taos and everywhere in between New Mexico is training.
Eastern New Mexico University is currently ramping-up a film program of their very own…

Somebody bring that man some green and red, a burrito, something…he’s eating PB&J and cardboard pizza.
La Lohan, Lezlo, Bi-Han, Ho-Han or whatever the Tabs are calling her this hot-gossip minute, Actress/Singer is unfortunately-? not what this woman is “famous” for. The rehabbed former child-actress is hounded for her social undertakings and especially some porported slips off the wagon such as the one reported above. Didn’t this person go on an allegedly impaired, rampage in a motor vehicle not too long ago? She better stay straight or risk ending-up like this!
Someone needs to order this woman to a eyes-wide-open viewing of the 2000 film Requiem for a Dream. She’s (been) “in the industry” right? She should appreciate and be able to absorb cinematic content right?
As parental reference as well – this flick should scare a kid straight, no?
