Redemption is the art of redeeming or buying back.

When I think of redemption, on a pop cultural level, I think of Bob Marley‘s classic waiata (song) Redemption Songs. I do not share Bob’s religious views, yet his song I love. “Emancipate yourself from mental [ideological]  slavery” was this masterful poet/ songwriter’s heartening and universal message.

Whatever we lust unhealthily after, we are a slave mentally of it. Be it money (economic status), fame (a desire for recognition), sex (an illusion of love in a touch), these things can make us slaves if we are not in balance. That’s been my life experience to date.

Being more honest is also what I seek to be, at this point in my life. Part of my redemption involves people who care asking questions. Here’s some of those I got back to from friends when hitting Aotearoa New Zealand’s magnificent alluvial and minerals rich soil.

What is a blog?

Google, apparently says I am. .

I am not and never have been. I do like Geoff Murphy & Melanie Linsky collaborations with Carlos though. That’s about it.

I do know how to say “Hola” in Carlos Estevez ‘ native tongue. I can say that on Santa Monica beach where Carlos went to high school. Other than that, I’m not an especially avid fan. I like Nicole Kidman‘s fim work and I have paid to see Beyonce [Destiny's Child] perform on two different continents as a consumer. I do not feel the need to devote more time to Carlos’ TV work than I have to date. That’s just being honest.

[This photograph depicts who google say this blog's top stars are. It's not true according to daily blog stats. So why this depiction? I don't feel a need to do more posts on a TV actor at this minute, then I've produced for free, already. Yet google perhaps thinks I should. When he does some good, I might.]

Alison Rose Levy: Did the Gas Industry Censor the Wall Street Journal?

When the article was published on Friday night, it was the first time an industry spokesperson deployed a shift in strategy from the industry’s standard denials….
It would be unfortunate if the environmental community divided itself by making gas the solution to the coal problem. It’s entire lifestyle from extraction to use needs to be considered for environmental damage, health risk, and costs.

Here’s a US citizen with her green glasses on fighting fossil fuels addiction in the USA. Love it! Go kid.

Artwork as sourced via an Aussie website. Lol!

When you type the word “Maori” in America, here’s what you see. The same thing you’ll see via Google.Co.NZ. :)

We’re meant to believe that a) a new Mayor of Auckland City decides Maori’s leadership potential in the biggest city of Aotearoa New Zealand. A two hundred year-old reoccurring joke of New Zealand humor, that perhaps needs a contemporary retelling reflecting human rights awareness of a modern age, because Maori have been in Auckland for centuries and centuries. That show might be worth a watch then.

b) that Maori get sick more than nonMaori in New Zealand. A sad true fact of Maori living conditions in light of colonization and POSTcolonization cultural life.

c) That Maori are news ban worthy. Okay, that last one’s very Hollywood.

I don’t understand why Maori people have to spend hard earned money with good lawyers, to even be validated. Do you? We just are New Zealand.

So this is sort of good comedy writing to me, when I read a headline like this, from Hollywood – a city with the best comedy writers living here in the world.

What I mean is, when Hollywood’s biggest stars want ‘the best publicity’ they drop a bit of money on good L.A lawyers, and the publicity they get back in return via courtroom theater, is so amazing it makes the exercise worthwhile. I hope in good faith, that this is one of those same shows when I read ‘Maori News’ via Google in the USA today.

Let’s go New Zealand! You rock!

Let’s see what the new Mayor of Auckland is made of then. :)

Although my own belief is that freedom to access clean drinking water is a universal right, especially in Africa and India, thankfully President Obama has wise words on Egypt’s current revolution of change. Responding to how the Egyptian people’s internet was cut off, the 44th President of the United States of America says: “freedom to access information is a universal right.” So true. I was thinking that water makes up most of us as 63% or more of our bodies are made of the stuff, and electricity that fuels computer, internet and mobile telephone battery cells is largely dependent on water also. Knowledge is carried by water. My hope is that we get that right as human rights, on our watch and that all people of the world have it flowing freely their way.

Magazine Cover: Time‘s recent issue, depicts two American Presidents together. Cover Awards website writes: “While Obama and Reagan’s politics seem drastically different, Time points out that Obama admires Reagan’s “persona” and is approaching the second part of his presidency in a “Reaganesque fashion.” Or as Obama has said himself, “Reagan recognized the American people’s hunger for accountability and change.””

Alright, that sounded a little like current Egypt news too then today. Synergy all round.

The what’s in your taco story, outlined on this magazine cover is kinda more where it’s at here in the US politically at this juncture in voting history. That’s funny!

I must say that when legendary actor, Robert DeNiro, accepted his Cecile B. DeMille award from Matt Damon at The Golden Globes Awards 2011 in Hollywood this weekend, that you couldn’t help be a little bit disturbed by his auto-cue read speech.

He seemed to allude to the fact that Foreign Press reporters are a being a little bit bullied, threatened, possibly censored or even being removed from America in his speech. I couldn’t work out the gist of it. I knew the award was announced prior, so DeNiro had ample opportunity to learn and read his speech before accepting it, but I couldn’t help wonder why Robert was either showing signs of dementia in his shaky ability to read or recall many of the film’s he himself had appeared in, or, whether dude had indulged in too much of the HFPA’s complimentary liquor on the night – as you do – at awards shows. Two nights later, I have reached the conclusion that his speech needs to be addressed. As a member of the foreign press in America, issued (not by request, it was given) by the US government to me, before arriving here, I can’t say that I remotely agree with DeNiro’s speech regarding foreign press. The US government doesn’t bug me – so what was the big ‘scary spice’ deal?

First up though, let’s look at what other entertainment media liked about DeNiro’s speech, that was one of the highlights of the Globes awards show this year.

PopEater writes via TV Squad sourcing: “In a sharp, satirical speech, DeNiro made jabs at the Hollywood Foreign Press Assocation, Homeland Security, 3-D and even his own recent movie. “I was very, very moved and gratified when you made the announcement [of this award] two months ago,” he said. “Well before you had a chance to review ‘Little Fockers.’ ”These movies … are like my children. Except that my children are more expensive and you can’t remake them in 3-D to push up the grosses,” DeNiro said. “At a certain point you just have to let both of them go and hope for the best. It’s up to the audiences to decide if it’s entertainment, the critics to decide if it’s goods, and ultimately posterity to decide if it’s art.”

Writes Zennie Abraham of the Seattle PI blog: “DeNiro thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press and then went off on a weird rant that wasn’t taken so well by the audience. DeNiro said many of the members of The Hollywood Foreign Press, saying that many of them [were about to] be deported, along with the waiters serving the actors and actresses at the event. I’m not making this up. I’m waiting for the YouTube of this whole train wreck of a speech.Wow.”

This part of the speech was disturbing as it implied that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had been censored or bullied by the US government or their entry/ exit into the USA had been heavily monitored also at airports. DeNiro’s speech had alluded to ‘air port security staff taking way too long scanning Megan Fox‘s body at airports’ or ‘security pat down’ situations being OOC. I can’t say that I have felt this oppression from the USA while being a member of the foreign press here in the US blogging each day. I did not agree with DeNiro’s auto-cue penned speech at all. That has not been my experience across almost five years living in the USA full time, regarding the US government per se. I was left irritated by the speech as it simply was not true.

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. :)

Here as I blog in West Hollywood this Christmas I am thankful that we have freedom of expression and freedom of speech in America.

Finally, I have recovered from a dirty martini hang over from two nights ago at a Hollywood Hills Christmas party. I like olives, so always get it wrong when I see them in a festive glass. I only had two martinis, but they were good ones! The relief of not having a Bellevedere voddie headache today is awesome, yet the respite is short lived when today I look at the news and I see that people are being persecuted in Iran for being different.

People are not allowed to have a Christmas this year. Those who want to are detained, some are behind bars, some will be martyred for their Christian faith in 2010!!! That’s insanity.  Read the rest of this entry »

[AI suggestion - perhaps NGRAM needs to go back to the chalk board phase]

If I was naive enough to believe Google’s “Books Ngram Viewer” that claims to count words based on 5 million published books and track their trends in terms of amount of times words appear in books (quantitative research), the Maori people of New Zealand would not fare well. The results would have me rehashing that archaic dead-end term, “racism” asap. Maori don’t like doing that in this enlightened age. It does not get people very far, because it immediately casts Maori in the light of having to drive a car fueled by ‘white man’s guilt.’ When you drive on whenua (land) that has tar seal put on it and called a “road,” that would be too much “irony” for a Maori to handle in any given day. Besides, why should we? That’s something that would appeal as a college student. The past is healing.

The tracking tool claims (my search conducted between years 1920 and 2008) that the word “Maori” peaked as a topic of interest in books in the year of 1978 (aprox). Since then it’s plummeted and currently, the usage of the word Maori is as low as its status listed in 1950 findings that’s given in the little graph that pops up. Already, this NGRAM Viewing tool of Google is capable of starting civil wars. I don’t like it much at all so far.

Being scientific, with heart and soul – this means: a) Maori are extinct again – a typical ‘pseudo-scientific’ finding (yawn!) Maori have learned to ignore since being able to read maps – but this time in a literary sense.

Already this supposedly revolutionary tool of technology is spitting out results generating ‘information’ that is rather boring quite frankly in my humble opinion. I say this because such ‘information’ has been so done TO DEATH already!  Read the rest of this entry »

If you haven’t heard these names good on ya! I don’t know how you found this blog. Anyway, according to Google Zeitgeist’s result’s that have been okay-ed for distribution, these are the top ten fastest rising names of the Entertainment world, outside of Asian nations. A youthful burst of (mainly) American faces. They :

1. Justin Bieber. 2. Katy Perry. 3. Selena Gomez. 4. Kim Kardashian. 5. Eminem 6. Lady Gaga. 7. Miley Cyrus. 8. Taylor Lautner. 9. Megan Fox. 10. Robert Pattinson.

Other trending names: Shakira, Netflix. Youtube Videos. Ke$ha. Nicki Minaj. Grooveshark. Transformers 3.

All I can say is: There is no Bollywood stars here (a weakness Google needs to improve on to grow market share, still this year) and thank goodness for Robert Pattinson and Shakira, otherwise there would be nobody who wasn’t American in this list other than Bieber.

Come on Google! Be more sharing and reflective.

Zero grade for cross-cultural spirit from an American-owned IT company! You’d think the world was American looking at these results. What a false and deluded bubble that is, to present such a vision to the world. Let’s hope next year Google USA isn’t so insecure. I have a blog, I too know who trends each day.

It’s a pity the Wikileaks scandal didn’t involve the real Google Zeitgiest results. Just saying. This list conveys a vision of ‘cultural imperialism’ that is skewed America’s way. Ideological brainwashing on display, a tad here to be remotely feasible.

I even ask whether Google was censored this year? Unreal. With the exception of Eminem, Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha’s inclusion and Selena Gomez being bumped onto the list at no.3 to reflect the latest US census results proving more Hispanic-American than envisaged–this reads like last year’s list of entertainers. This list feels stale.

“It’s great to smell fresh air of London again,” Assange, 39, illuminated by a blizzard of photographers’ flashes, said after being released on $312,000 bail. “I continue on with our work. Clearing my name is not the highest task I have. The highest task I have is to continue with my work,” Assange added. Christine Assange, Julian’s mother (pictured below) had flown in from Australia to London to be with her son to “hold him close.” Aussie moms–How sweet.

Julian Assange has had quite a month. He proves that in a month, a dark horse outsider can: take the cover of Time Magazine; be listed as Time‘s no.2 most influential person of the year after a Facebook founder; can have Swedish girls fling themselves at him claiming rape, broken condom rumors–all after consensual sex with a man (go figure); have fame seekers like Michael Moore appear on camera to bail Julian out of jail.

Amazon and Paypal have dumped Julian Assange –yet Time Magazine features the Wikileaks guy on their cover this week (via Media Bistro).

Business Insider lists The five things Rick Stengel, Time‘s managing editor discovered Assange thinks when he interviewed him. As quoted from biz insider, they are:

Here are our five favorite quotes from the interview:

  • “[T]his sort of nonsense about lives being put in jeopardy is trotted out every time a big military or intelligence organization is exposed by the press.”
  • “I just noticed today Iran has agreed to nuclear talks. Maybe that’s coincidence or maybe it’s coming out of this process…” Read the rest of this entry »

BBC News reports: “The website of whistle-blowing organisation Wikileaks has been shut down by the company providing it with domain name services. said it had terminated services because had come under massive cyber attacks.

It said the attacks threatened its infrastructure and endangered access to thousands of other websites. ”These attacks have, and future attacks would, threaten the stability of the infrastructure, which enables access to almost 500,000 other websites,” said.

Are the attacks a form of censorship? And what is there to hide? I wonder what Facebook’s owners think of this Wikileaks case. Whatever laws are decided for Wikileaks could set a precedent over all the information facebook owns on their website too.

An interesting case to keep an eye on then.

No other search engine digs Horiwood.Com for some weird reason like . There are more back links to this blog recorded on Yahoo in the 50 nations Horiwood.Com is read in, than any other search engine–according to Quantcast’s analysis of this site.

Yahoo has 15% market share of all American search engine users–which perhaps reflects Yahoo users boycotting google to back underdog competition–and using Yahoo for a diverse opinion–that are more supportive of rising star bloggers than the established milieu. Perhaps they are slightly more democratic by nature then, a good sign? I think so. The truth is though–Yahoo and bing’s spiders glean from google–so that’s a bit of a catch 22 as to the appearance of their total independence as search engine services. It’s like information sharing today (the wikileaks drama at the minute)–search engines like nations all share information. We are all interconnected somehow, even with our online communications.

Here’s Yahoo’s Top Ten Horiwood.Com web stories. Why, I don’t know–but Yahoo readers are allegedly digging these ten topics the most. Let’s share the view:

1. Watching Lady Gaga live in concert when she was once humble – by Horiwood. I have to say, when Gaga gloated asking a great like Cher to “hold her meat purse” when she accepted an award–I kinda went off her for a little bit. Sorry Gaga fans I just thought she’d gone too far. However, Yahoo gives Gaga news no. 1 ranking on this blog.


3. THE HORIWOOD TOP TEN – TUE 11.30.10 on Tree Hugger website

4. Horiwood Top 10 getting glory-stood-on by WordPress each day. Blog capturing.

5. Sports Horiwood — Blogs, Pictures, and more on WordPress


7. Broken Controllers on Hot Political Topics for Horiwood.Com–Thanks for the free-ing

8. Freemasons Website are closely watching Horiwood.Com – Why? I don’t know. But hi!

9. USA Today capturing Gen. Wesley Clark News

10. Michael Jackson News on Horiwood.Com

Alright — Here in America in the land of the brave and free–Thanks Yahoo.Com for the insight. Not one New Zealand news topic rates in the top ten–so I guess, I’m more American than I give myself credit for with Yahoo users. Sweet! I’ll wear that. Thanks Yahoo of California. Loving you back! :)

This is an: Espionage and Privacy of The Political System’s Ambassadors Vs Freedom of Speech and Censorship debate post.

Here in America, we live in a capitalist society. That means–make a buck. We also live in a society where politicians want increased information about all American citizens, yet it appears when information about politicians is available for public reading–they don’t like that. It also appears that many in positions of alleged power, protect their own privacy above the privacy of all others–namely the people they are in office to allegedly serve. I’m joking, if you take the wikileaks leaked docs scandal too seriously, it’s just the wrong approach–but the question does need to be asked in America today–What is censorship?

News that Amazon was focred to stop hosting WikiLeaks today due to building political pressure has everyone talking today. The Associated Press reports: “ Inc. forced WikiLeaks to stop using the U.S. company’s computers to distribute embarrassing State Department communications and other documents, WikiLeaks said Wednesday. The ouster came after congressional staff had questioned Amazon about its relationship with WikiLeaks, said Sen. Joe Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut.

“WikiLeaks confirmed the news hours after The Associated Press reported that Amazon’s servers had stopped hosting WikiLeaks’ site. The site was unavailable for several hours before it moved back to its previous Swedish host, Bahnhof.”

On  Wikileaks tweeted their response in the form of: “WikiLeaks servers at Amazon ousted. Free speech the land of the free–fine our $ are now spent to employ people in Europe.

They also tweeted: “If Amazon are so uncomfortable with the first amendment, they should get out of the business of selling books.”

Good points raised all round. What is censorship and what is freedom of speech? are always questions I raise and ask on this blog. And isn’t this a case of politicians respecting their own privacy more than the privacy and freedom of speech of the very people who pay them and elect them to serve?

Amazon must be gutted at the loss of revenue with a hot potato topic like the wikileaks scandal at the minute. Oh well, there’s always being patient waiting for eBook sales to pick up as a sweetener for the Book Distribution giant company.

Why a wiretap bill? Censorship usually exists when people fear that other people are having more fun than them.

Though many reasons are given to censor and monitor unilatterally- an extreme minority of people are targeted to endorse censorship (the ‘terrorist’ word is bandied about) creating fear and justifying the means to legalize censorship.

In the end, authorities censor because they want to be at the center of the fun. And they fear they are missing out on fun, and are not having fun themselves more than the average person. When this happens, their sense of elitism of the system they support, will quite often want to censor.

Maybe Washington’s politicians just need to spend more time with their families and friends and just have more fun? Instead. That could reduce a surge upon the average Jill, to censor.

As I’m writing this in Hollywood, the possibilities of being a wire tapper could be Hollywood friendly. Being a wire tap person for the government would be the coolest job ever if you wanted to be a novelist or a screenwriter. You’d see it all and learn lots too.

The best film idea would be “Wire tapping the wire tapper bill guys.”

That would resonate with the little person and sell tickets at the box office. Kind of like The Social Network film, whereby you cast twenty something kids and teens in the roles – and turn them loose in this script idea. I’d call it, iWire. Or iTap. It would be a good film.

And as Hollywood texts inform popular votes, which constitute politcal votes perhaps such a film would lead to 20 something politicians getting elected into U.S political life too. We need politicians in their twenties in D.C, to represent the needs of youth and twenty year olds. Therein lies a great imbalance of under-representation of younger Americans concerns in the 2010s. The 2000′s taught us, 20 something politicians need to exist.

A film like iWire could help, create some. Their purpose… to always ask Washington why.

This story via the HuffPo: “WASHINGTON — Broad new regulations being drafted by the Obama administration would make it easier for law enforcement and national security officials to eavesdrop on Internet and e-mail communications like social networking Web sites and BlackBerries, The New York Times reported Monday.

The newspaper said the White House plans to submit a bill next year that would require all online services that enable communications to be technically equipped to comply with a wiretap order. That would include providers of encrypted e-mail, such as BlackBerry, networking sites like Facebook and direct communication services like Skype.”

Do you think that a) this is in order. b) a tad bit insecure and controlling leaning towards a form of censorship. c) don’t care?

I’m with c. :)

On the up note – monitoring online coms, will ‘create new jobs.’
