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.

Pop Chips Snacks are Bad for You – Don’t Eat PopChips – Here’s Why You Should Avoid This Company’s Products

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

That Popchips company thinks it’s funny to have dull-witted spokesmodel / dull-witted investor Ashton Kutcher* do some free YouTube videos only to take them down if they prove too controversial.

All right, Popchips, here’s the thing: The problem with the video wasn’t that it was “controversial.”

The problem was that it was stupid.

Oh, and not funny.

Not funny at all.

Did you all think enough to say something, Popchips people? Something like, “Yeah, Ashton, we know you want to do these videos, but they’re not good.” Oh, you all just thought that, but you didn’t want to actually say anything at the time? Well that’s just not going to fly.

N0w let’s hear from people who actually tried eating the product that Ashton Kutchner wants to make money from:

God, Popchips are awful. The flavors suck.”

Popchips SUCK! I can believe I let you weiners influence me into buying a bag of that collossal garbage.”

And if newfangled Popchips turn out to cause cancer, then you the consumer just might end up dead from buying something that made dull-witted spokesmodel / dull-witted Popchips investor*** Ashton Kutcher ever so slightly richer.

You wouldn’t want that, would you?

*He reminds me of our similarly dull-witted former Mayor Gavin Newsom, for some reason.** Hey, whatever happened to that guy?

**Oh, maybe it was the Fiji Water I was reminded of. Our former Mayor just loved his Fiji Water, of course. I could totally see Gavin becoming a dull-witted spokesmodel / dull-witted investor / Brand Ambassador for the Fiji Water.

***Back in the day, famous actor O.J. Simpson similarly invested in HoneyBaked Ham. You know, because he liked the company. But OJ had the sense to not do stupid commercials for Honeybaked.

Your Alarmist Food News of the Day: Lead-Contaminated Honey from China Makes Up One-Third of U.S. Supply?

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Writer Andrew Schneider has been all over his adulterated honey story for a while.

Via Kyle Mizokami, here it is:

Asian Honey, Banned in Europe, Is Flooding U.S. Grocery Shelves – FDA has the laws needed to keep adulterated honey off store shelves but does little, honey industry says.”

Do you buy all that?

So, you see, the mom-and-pop ops in the PRC use lead solder in their unlined honey collection vessels and then the honey gets transshipped to India and then it comes here because it’s banned in the EU, or something like that.

Seems plausible…

Remember Gurbaksh “G” Chahal, San Francisco’s Own “Secret Millionaire?” Well, Now He’s Crying Over His Busted Ferrari

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Remember Gurbaksh “G” Chahal and all his troubles? Well, if you don’t, watch one-minute of this video from the NBC. Good times.

(Remember when he proudly pointed out his flat-panel TV (“BAM!”) and “great mirror?” And the zebra pelt on the kitchen floor?*)

But now, there’s sadness in his life owing to his slightly older-model Ferrari getting cracked up while in the custody of his Ferrari dealership. Of course, the dealership has offered to fix it up and/or offered to let him buy a newer, unused Ferrari at a higher price, but that’s not good enough for G.

Read all about it via Ryan Tate of Gawker.

Also via Ryan, an excerpt from the FB:

See that “why does this crap always happen to me?” 

Does this make “G” the “definition of a douchelord?”

Chin up, G!

*Apparently, the people behind the Secret Millionaire show wanted to show a big delta between the lifestyle of his real-life SoMA pad vs. the Tenderloin hovel that he shacked-up in during the filming of the show. Well, some people got carried away with the made-for-TV furnishings. So that’s where the zebra pelt and chandelier came in. Ironically, you might prefer to live in that hovel on Larkin Street – it’s not that bad, right across the street from Homeland Security. Typical Americans watching had no idea that the rent on that supposedly unlivable apartment in the Tenderloin was more than their flyover country mortgage payments…
