MindUP™ New Mexico

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.

Leonardo DiCaprio: From King of the World to Captain of the Galaxy

Posted by on May 24, 2013 | Comments Off on Leonardo DiCaprio: From King of the World to Captain of the Galaxy

Leonardo DiCaprio takes to space from New Mexico Spaceport

As we told you here Leonardo DiCaprio’s Titanic co-star, Kate Winslet was on hand for the grand opening of Sir Richard Branson’s Spaceport America – the world’s only commercial space destination port, back in 2011.

Well now one of the biggest stars on earth is slated to take to the heavens with three generous bidders who collectively paid $3.8M to launch from Spaceport New Mexico with the actor.

The galaxy bound foursome was assembled as a top offering of the Cinema Against AIDS Charity Auction held on Thursday night at the Cannes Film Festival’s amfAR Gala. This year the annual event raised a record $25M to fund AIDS research.

As predicted this is just one in the beginning of many major celebrity visits and tourism prospects the spaceport lends to New Mexico!

First Look: Johnny Depp on the L.A. set of Transcendence

Posted by on May 1, 2013 | Comments Off on First Look: Johnny Depp on the L.A. set of Transcendence

Johnny Depp Starts Transcendence

Gone are the array of make-shift dreads, gobs of charcoal makeup, and swaths of flowing gypsy-like fabric; Also missing is the soon-to-be modernly iconic crow headdress, Native American chestplate, and all other accessories and makeup that the world has come to recognize as signature Johnny Depp. Though in a few of these pics it appears that he could be wearing a minor facial prosthetic and is perhaps sporting some applied scruff.

A slick shutterbug or two captured these images of Depp on the Los Angeles set of his next film, Transcendence – due to shoot in New Mexico within the next few weeks. This Peek at The Lone Ranger star shows dress, cut and shave more similar to some of his very early roles like Officer Tom Hansen or even doomed teen Glen Lantz!

In Trancendence Johnny Depp heads an all star cast including Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphey, Rebecca Hall and Kate Mara. Details of the film’s intriguing plot is being held tightly under wraps, though it has been reported that it will be a psychological, science fiction thriller, which follows a scientist whose brain is the first to be downloaded onto computer creating a sort of mainframe that can think for itself.

Seeing Depp in an intense thinking man’s role over his more animated caricature stints is sure to be met with interest. Maybe a little Mort Rainey meets Donnie Brasco

Keep it here for New Mexico casting info. on “Transcendence”.

Stan Lee Tweets on Johnny Depp in #ABQ

Posted by on June 12, 2012 | Comments Off on Stan Lee Tweets on Johnny Depp in #ABQ

Was Johnny Depp at this weekend’s Albuquerque Comic-Expo? Fellow film star and comic legend The Real Stan Lee was!

While Stan Lee made his highly anticipated appearance at the Expo this weekend, rumors swirled on the floor of the convention center when attendees began to whisper that The Lone Ranger star may have made his disguised way through the crowds.

From the top of the comic-book world totem pole, Lee tweeted graciousness toward Depp who is filming TLR in the Q with:

We purposely came to #Albuquerque late, ‘cause I knew #JohnnyDepp was shooting here today, and I didn’t want to have all the attention of everybody taken away from him and centered on me… And I thought that was the least I could do for a fellow movie star.
The Real Stan Lee

If you found yourself oddly taken with a “mad hatted”, grey bearded chap at Sunday’s Expo, you may have been comic-crazed face to superstar and newly anointed Comanche, disguised face with Johnny Depp! Did you see him there? Some OHI readers think they did.

Who and what will be spotted getting their COSMIC on at the upcoming Roswell Cosmic-con & Film Festival??? Perhaps a Foo or two? How killer would a Depp Foo jam be any day of the week!?!?

Feeling a rise in the fahrenheit here in NM my brothers and sisters?

Well, everything from temperatures to hemlines and everything in-between may be compelled to head upwards, esp. right here in the Q as two of the sexiest men in North America now tread where Tonto and the Lone Ranger (not to mention the molten lava hotness of one Walter White) have already set-up shop.

As we told you here FIRST, the demi-god of NM’s The Book of Eli and the original god of underwear ad dreams are set to team in the graphic novel turned upcoming mega movie, 2 Guns.

The reports are in that the pair are IN TOWN now, in preparation for the film that will shoot here and in Louisiana later this year.

Hottie-tottie, sexy lady, Paula Patton is also set to star.

Drop us a line here if you’re impressed by the duo out & about in the Q.

Gracias Chimi

p.s. we had some kick a** (not really) new pics of The Lone Ranger set for you today, but somebody pitched a fit…so, no cigarro on that, but they are floating around out there…probably sure to surface on KOAT in a few weeks.

Helena Bonham Carter at #ABQ Uptown

Posted by on March 19, 2012 | One comment

The lifelong muse and immortal beloved of Tim Burton is in town for her part in Disney’s The Lone Ranger movie.

While New Mexico is known for playing it cool and letting our visiting celebs go about their b’niss uninterrupted like…Helena Bonham Carter was particularly unbothered by the kindest gentlest local celeb in town when they were face to face at our own uptown Trader Joe’s.

If she’d been a snake, she couldda bit him. But our unassuming, beloved morning radio show bearer of sunshine and light, Donnie Chase of 100.3 The Peak couldn’t have ID’d the star to save his life or hers when they recently crossed paths.

The star encounter sighting prompted a storm of celeb encounter reports on the JTD Morning Show facebook page.

Do you have a NM Celeb Encounter story or pic? Send us what you’ve got! Vintage pics, à la you w/ the cast of Young Guns, Natural Born Killers, All the Pretty Horses, etc. especially WANTED! Tell us about your NM Celeb Encounter: sindication@oneheadlightink.com

¡Hola Tonto!

Posted by on January 13, 2012 | 5 comments

A KOB-TV viewer has SCORED the first pic of the now CONFIRMED Johnny Depp New Mexico sighting!!!

Come on people!!! He’s just a man!

A precious, delicately featured, angel voiced man of a million emotions and hues of GORGEOUS that every man, woman and child WILL eventually dream of…

Annnnnd, I digress (I’m talking to YOU, seventh grade me! SIT DOWN and have the composure of the ol’ gal you have become)…

Eh, hmm. This pic is of The Lone Ranger star, reportedly placing him in Gallup, NM last week…

p.s. I love my husband and reality, and my reality based self is (cliché alert), OVER THE HERNANDEZ MOON that Depp is here because no fewer than THOUSANDS of reporters and subsequent press coverage of our beau-ti-ful and extraordinary state will follow.

p.p.s. Thank you Johnny for inspiring emotions I haven’t felt since I last looked into your BIG, brown eyes behind my bedroom door circa 198something. xo
