The Second-Best Bay Area-Related Press Release of 2012: Elisabeth Thieriot Manages to “Survive” “False Accusations”

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Remember this bit from earlier in the month?

Area Whacko Elisabeth Thieriot Hosted a Mayan Spiritual Leader in Tiburon and She Wants You To Know ALL About It

Well, she’s back.

But first, a little background. It seems the world will end on December 21, 2012:

The 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of eschatological beliefs according to which cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on 21 December 2012. This date is regarded as the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae have been proposed as pertaining to this date, though none have been accepted by mainstream scholarship. A New Age interpretation of this transition is that this date marks the start of time in which Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 2012 may mark the beginning of a new era. Others suggest that the 2012 date marks the end of the world or a similar catastrophe. Scenarios suggested for the end of the world include the arrival of the next solar maximum, or Earth’s collision with an object such as a black hole, a passing asteroid, or a planet called “Nibiru“.

OK fine.

Area whacko Elisabeth Thieriot is working on, in her words, “saving humanity” so you gots to listen to her.

(Especially when UHF Channel 36 cuts into a Friends rerun on a Sunday afternoon.)

And please remember, you only have 144 days left before you’re going to have to KYAG:

“It’s A Red Carpet Life…” Features Exclusive Interviews on “Decoding B’aqtun” - Host interviews Head Elder of the Mayan Council and film executive producer & financier Elisabeth Thieriot

SAN FRANCISCO, July 27, 2012 — MBL Media Productions, an Emmy Award-winning, full-service film and video production company, is proud to announce the premiere of “It’s A Red Carpet Life…The Mayan Prophecy,” where host Marybeth La Motte will discuss the concept and production process behind the filming of “Decoding B’aqtun.” The documentary, filmed in Guatemala in April 2012, uncovers rarely seen Mayan artifacts from the sites of Tikal and Quirigua, Guatemala.

In the episode airing this Sunday, July 29, at 5:25pm PDT on KICU TV36 (directly after “FRIENDS”), La Motte interviews the Head Elder of the Mayan Council, Apolinario Chile Pixtun, and Elisabeth Thieriot, President, Elicosma Productions and also the film’s financier and executive producer. “We encourage viewers to tune in and find out about ‘Decoding B’aqtun,’” La Motte shares. “The unique opportunity to learn more about the Mayan calendar and culture has been a rewarding experience for our team and we can’t wait to share the insight with our audience.”

In his interview with La Motte, Pixtun explains why the Mayan culture designed its calendar thousands of years ago and how it holds true today. He also recaps the development of a substantial friendship with Thieriot and his respect for her concentrated effort in the face of adversity throughout production.

In the second half of the interview, Thieriot explains the Mayan prophecies of 2012, clarifies what society has achieved in the last 5000 years, and gives a sneak peek into what the movie discloses about the Mayan calendar. She also candidly discusses production hurdles and surviving false accusations and blackmail from a previous film’s production in Mexico.

“Too late,” the prophets cry
The island’s sinking, let’s take to the sky

Area Whacko Elisabeth Thieriot Hosted a Mayan Spiritual Leader in Tiburon and She Wants You To Know ALL About It

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

I suppose.

I can’t think of any other function for this press release, seen below.

Now, be careful what you say about Elisabeth Thieriot. ‘Cause I’ll tell you, the San Francisco Examiner seems to be in fear of her, or her lawyer, or perhaps I’m jumping to conclusions here but this page used to have a few words about ‘Lisbeth and also a reference to a Reuters article about some allegations about Mexico (or Guatemala?) and the police and some purportedly stolen stuff and some movie about 2012 and the Mayan Calendar and other things that rich people in Marin County seem to enjoy.

No no, you’re best off just calling her a “famed business woman“ and moving on.

To this:

Elisabeth Thieriot is a prominent San Francisco Philanthropist and founder of Seasons San Francisco, a lifestyle company promoting natural beauty through healthy skin, diet and seasonal living. The philosophy of Elisabeth Thieriot is based on the universal law of cycles, macrobiotics, and living water, body type consumption, healing botanicals and being aware of the environment. This philosophy, along with the proper care and feeding of the body and the skin, sleep, healthy living and awareness of the seasons and their transitions will bring out the natural beauty and vitality that we possess. It removes illness and allows the body to do its work for physical, mental and emotional health. Beauty is not skin deep, it comes from within which is dependent on our attitude, what we eat, what we put on our skin, what we come into contact with and our physical activity. Attention to these things is what creates timeless, ageless longevity and truly represents the fountain of youth.”

All right, here it is, the best Bay Area-related press release so far for 2012:

“Head Mayan Elder, Apolinario Chile Pixtun, Visits San Francisco to Discuss Mayan Calendar - Executive Producer and Financier of ‘Decoding B’aqtun,’ Hosts Head Mayan Elder in a Questions + Answers Session

SAN FRANCISCO, July 10, 2012  – Elisabeth Thieriot, a San Francisco-based business woman, co-founder of PhoneCharge, Inc, philanthropist and author of Be Fabulous at Any Age hosted a questions and answers session for the Head Elder of the Mayan Council, Apolinario Chile Pixtun, on June 27th for friends and media at her home, Lions Gate in Tiburon, CA.

“I always enjoy coming to Elisabeth’s house because she is a gracious host and has a warm heart,” says guest, Sudha Pennathur. “It’s even more of a pleasure to be invited to Lions Gate and get the rare chance to meet Apolinario to learn about the Mayan culture and her [Thieriot's] film that has been a big part of her life this year.”

Guests sipped wine and savory hors d’ouerves, while Thieriot and Pixtun answered questions one by one from guests and media. Question topics ranged from the Mayan culture and the calendar, to the upcoming movie “Decoding B’aqtun.” Guests represented a wide range of backgrounds, from the Catholic Church, a Cryptologist, an Indian jewelry designer, a Guatemalan female empowerment advocate and more.

Pixtun clutched his Mayan spiritual guidance stick while explaining spirituality in the Mayan culture and the meaning of this b’aqtun in particular. He also discussed the film, “Decoding B’aqtun,” and the pleasure of working with Thieriot.

“[Working] with Elisabeth was different. It is a different work relationship. It is a different way of seeing life,” Pixtun explained. “Working with her is good and especially working on a project that will save humanity.”

Thieriot and Pixtun worked well together and bonded in a strong friendship during production. This is why Pixtun made a stop to Thieriot’s house on his U.S.A. tour of hosting various Mayan conferences.

The film is a guide to the secret of how to live a fulfilled life through spirituality by the Mayan example. While Pixtun explained the Mayan culture, there is more to be revealed that the film touches on. “Decoding B’aqtun” is scheduled to come out at the end of 2012.

To watch the interview of Thieriot and Pixtun, respectively, as well as highlights from the question and answer session, tune in on July 29 at 5:25 p.m. to “It’s a Red Carpet Life…” Red Carpet Bay Area’s summer shorts on KICU TV36 and re-watch the segment with additional photos here.

San Francisco’s 11th Commandment: Christians Shalt Not Obey Parking Rules on Sundays

Monday, June 25th, 2012

Thusly:

You know, back in the day, SFGov freely violated the 14th Amendment until it got slapped down.

These days, SFGov violates the 1st Amendment with its Christians Park Free rule. When will SFGov get slapped down on this issue?

I know not. It’ll take a new Yick Wo to file a lawsuit. (Right? ‘Cause just nagging the SFGov isn’t going to cut it. SFGov will just ignore you.)

In the meantime, enjoy San Francisco’s Transit First (Except for Church-Goers) policy.

How Many SFPD Cops Does It Take to Babysit 100 Occupiers at the 888 Turk Street Occupation Overnight? About 100?

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

As seen last night – some of the cops on the left and the occupiers on the right:

Click to expand

Man, the cops were everywhere, as if they were getting ready for an early-morning raid…

The communique:

“On Sunday, April 1st, in solidarity with the Western Regional Advocacy Project’s “We Won’t Get Fooled Again” National Day of Action for the rights of the un-housed, Occupy SF working groups & affinity groups are liberating a vacant building and converting it into a social center, shelter and food bank for the people. We have already demonstrated, for 82 days, what is possible when a space is liberated and reclaimed. The encampments at 101 Market St and Justin Herman / B. Manning Plaza were successful experiments in non-hierarchical organizing where resources were shared in a gift economy and collective decisions made through consensus, while food, shelter and medical care were provided to the greater community.

This action on Sunday is not a temporary protest, but a permanent occupation intended to establish a social center. We will transform this vacant building into a productive and vibrant space, just as we did in the plaza occupation, and we wish others to take similar actions and more.

Wealth inequality is increasing, the environment is being destroyed, the police state and drug war are devastating our communities and social movements, while our foreign wars enrich the 1% at the expense of our troops and innocent civilians. In San Francisco alone, thousands sleep on the street while thousands of houses and apartments lay empty. From Chapel Hill to Seattle, from New York to Oakland, people are rising up to directly change the social and economic system by liberating vacant buildings and reclaiming them for the people.

We are taking this action to bring immediate relief and housing to homeless youth in our community, and to provide a space for assembling, sharing food and healing for all people.”

Huge Anti-Abortion Rally Coming to Civic Center January 21st: Walk for Life West Coast Has a New Starting Location

Monday, January 9th, 2012

The 8th Annual Walk for Life West Coast will start at Civic Center this year.

Will organizers lie about attendance by simply adding 5000 people to the previous year’s estimate as is their custom? We’ll just have to wait and see. Somebody will document the crowd overestimating, but I don’t know if it will be me this year…

All the deets:

“Due to a scheduling conflict, the Walk for Life will be unable to follow its familiar route from Justin Herman Plaza and along San Francisco’s waterfront to Marina Green.

There will be no additional events at Justin Herman Plaza.
