Top Gear‘s TV ratings have plummeted in Australia since moving to Channel 9 from the SBS network where it used to screen, according to ratings results released today.

One must ask, are Australians beginning to define fun entertainment that is not based on what you put in one’s gasoline tank with this news? Or, are their just newer shows capturing a nation’s focus these days?

I know that China loves fast cars. The USA too. Christchurch City and West Auckland does as well. Obviously the UK does with this show even being made today. When I was in Brisbane last, I even watched this show on Aussie TV. It was fun in those days. Now perhaps, not so much.

It wasn’t the cars featured on the show that were the stars anyway, it was more the commentary on the voice track of this reality TV series. It was insanely wild, I recall.

Because eagles who can wrangle are US on American roads here’s three views of Hollywood skies today. The military are present with choppers flying over head. Busy.

And Good Year hires a hot air balloon in the shape of a bomb (why?!), above Hollywood with a message that it’s time to re-tyre one’s car.

I don’t know about you, but seeing a bomb above California as a marketing tool for economic development of a worldwide corporation based on rubber and steel products, is just a tad bit creepy. Jk.Good Year’s effort to be present and send their company message is creative though. Points for that! Everyone’s looking.

Here’s three views at sunset in West Hollywood. Hollywood is a city where every level of one’s senses is invaded. Look at these pics of the skyline in this Hollywood minute – there’s a lot happening above.

Five things we’re sharing in the hood on social media right now are:

1. Industry Town news – 1.6.11

2. Phoenix Phenom is a music artist – buffeting storms of her young progress

3. Kris Fa’afoiLady Gardiner are good people serving well

4. Humor – red neck wedding photos keep the USA amused

5. Pippa Middleton is on a diet for two more days

Alright car owners in California – help Good Year out! Rubber retreading is upon us. Peace!

In keeping with Good Year’s sense of humor, here are the names of their stars they offer California in this rather quirky snap shot moment. Products are -



From the Washington Post we learn that General Motors has laid of American workers in Buffalo. Workers at a General Motors engine-manufacturing facility in N.Y., learned that they would be laid off temporarily as the shortage of Japanese-made parts roils the U.S. auto industry.

In Rockville, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission opened hearings on the safety of the country’s 104 nuclear reactors, many of them long in the tooth and now undergoing a critical reexamination.

And in Richmond, a family mourned. The U.S. Embassy in Japan informed the parents of Taylor Anderson, a 24-year-old American who had been teaching at a school in Japan, that her body had been identified in tsunami-battered Miyagi prefecture. Anderson reportedly helped parents pick up their children after the earthquake before she rode her bicycle home.

“Fittingly, she was last seen helping parents safely reunite with their children following the earthquake, an act which illustrates her dedication to her students and to the Japanese people she served,” Virginia Gov.Robert F. Mc Don nell (R) said.

Japan’s impacts are hitting America on many levels. The stock market however has surged the last three days. Taylor Anderson obviously was a very school teacher.

This satellite image of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan shows damage to the reactor building for units 1, 3 and 4. And a Radex scan shows radiation levels are toxic too.

1 Fact: 1 billion people do not have clean drinking water. Where: Africa and India are most affected.

The threat: More people are lost in the world through this situation than war.

The solution: We can make a difference through UNICEF Tap Project. If you want to, please do.

True fact 2: For as little as $10, one person can have clean drinking water for a lifetime.

That’s like a beer at a Hollywood club with the tip. Amazing aye! Act. Bump this post on too. Let’s flow. :)
