Goldie Hawn in Ruidoso New MexicoEugene Heathman/Ruidoso Free Press

Social media was abuzz this weekend when in the heart of Hollywood, New Mexico aka Ruidoso some recognizable faces were spotted out and about in the area this Labor Day Weekend.

Hometown girl and Voice contestant Tawnya Reynolds made a few appearances, Rick Springfield was in town, and one particularly bubbly blonde known and loved the world over brought her specially cultivated brand of curriculum to Ruidoso; as Goldie Hawn works to implement her foundation’s educational focus to rural New Mexico classrooms.

The actress, director, producer presents MindUP™, “a very distinctly clinical, scientific and physiological focus on taking the peaks and valleys from the daily learning cycle and applying them to everyday life.” Hawn tells the Ruidoso Free Press, “MindUP™ engages the students, teachers and especially the parents into better ways for conditioning the brain to learn with enthusiasm”.

The program has students take time at the beginning and end of each day to focus on their breathing, where Hawn says, “Today like never before, our little ones are challenged with incredible amounts of stress and distractions, impeding learning and ultimately impacting their ability to achieve success and happiness in life,” The practices aim to nurture optimism and happiness in the classroom, help eliminate bullying and aggression, increase empathy and compassion, while resolving peer conflicts in schools.

MindUP™ is the result of a 10 year of collaboration between the Hawn Foundation, neuroscientists, educators, psychologists and experts in the field of mindful awareness training which serves thousands of children globally each year, preparing children to be able to navigate 21st century challenges while maximizing opportunities for success in life.

NM Cover Boy

New Mexico’s number one son is kicking butt, taking and naming names!

From his early years, in Hollywood, New Mexico (more commonly known as Ruidoso), to his shot to fame as Doogie Howser, M.D., Neil Patrick Harris’ star only continues to rise.

In a Sept. issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine, New Mexico’s Own lends his writing skills to sharing a HOLLYWOOD survival guide with the world!

NPH says, reveal your personal life, not your private life and as to how to act on a set, “Never be a d-bag to the crew”.

More gems including these excerpts from NPH in his own words to here:

I was very musical at a young age. So much so that Churchill Cooke, our elementary school band and choir director, let me teach parts in the choir when I was in the fourth grade. First I played the xylophone, then marimba, cymbals, French horn, bassoon — I became a sort of jack-of-all-trades. It’s a mindset that I think never really left me. Mr. Cooke would say, “We need an oboe part for this piece, Neil. Learn oboe.” And I would say, “Sure, Mr. Cooke. Who needs friends?”

Mr. Steven Bochco is a very wise man. After a many-monthed nationwide search to find a precocious teenage doctor, he hired me. But I suppose he’s wise for other reasons, too: Right when Doogie Howser, M.D. was beginning, he took my parents and me to a restaurant, sat us down, and said, “A career is like surfing. You paddle out and paddle out and get wet and hit by these waves. When you finally get out where you’re supposed to go, you have to sit on a surfboard for a long time, just waiting. If you’re really lucky, you’ll catch a wave, and it’ll be the most amazing feeling. But the key is that that wave will inevitably crash to the sand. Then what you have to do is paddle back out and get hit by a bunch of waves again. But trust that in the long term there will always be waves to catch.” To a young family from New Mexico, you can imagine our reaction: “What the hell is surfing?” But thinking back, it was a very impressive thing to hear as a kid and, as it turns out, absolutely accurate.

It’s good to have a lot of once-in-a-lifetimes in your lifetime. If you get the chance to skydive, go skydiving. If you’re offered a part in a weird Shakespeare play in San Diego, slap on some tights and rock out some iambic pentameter. If you’re offered the opportunity to have a swastika painted on your ass, glitter on your nipples, and to simulate sex with a man and a woman behind a curtain, go for it… provided it’s Cabaret on Broadway and not in some dude’s basement.

Gracias Precioso

From ABC News:

BRIAN SCOTT (Judge): Brian Scott is a country singer/ songwriter and restaurateur from New Mexico who found global fame when he won the 2009 Karaoke National Championship USA title with a rendition of Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind” that some judges claim was better than the original.

Coming SoonDVDFilmNMTrailer

Mr. Megan Fox and foxy Mena Suvari star in the upcoming sci-fi, horror Last Stop, filmed in Ruidoso NM. The film is scheduled to be released later this year – no word on if it will be cinematical or DVD direct.

Already minted to DVD and Blueray is the incredible Hammer Films NM Horror/Thriller Let Me In. This chilly horror stars NM’s Own (adopted) scary little lady Chloe Moretz – who I maintain is a FORCE to be reckoned with – I’m talking to you ACADEMY.

Moretz is scheduled to be back for her third NM film, Hick at the end of the month!

As of today she’s in a dead (pun) heat with Oscar contender Hailee Steinfeld in our own Golden Tumbleweed race for NM’s favorite leading lady of the past year…
