GIRLS ROCK!!!! (literally)

I want to rock… Rock!

For girls who like to rock, check out the “Girls Rock Camp Austin”. This rock camp, based in Austin, Texas, uses musical education and performance to help empower awesome young women of all backgrounds and abilities. Exclusively for girls, qualified counselors will instruct campers in guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and vocals.

There are two sessions of the camp in June and July. A few of their workshops include: songwriting, music history, music journalism, getting started in the music biz, decoding images of girls in pop culture, and how to make your own band t-shirts and buttons!

Since this camp is a nonprofit, they needed some support to get this years’ camp up and running. A few events to help raise funds were signed guitar giveaways from Dolly Parton and Joan Jett, and a day party at the SXSW Festival featuring some of today’s best all-female bands!

For more up to date info on the camp, events being held, and how you can help with donations, check out the Girls Rock Camp Austin Blog.

For girls who like to rock (like me)… Applications are online now!

Rockin’ Out,

Pluto

TOLD YOU SO!

fr_mw_postcards_11plPluto doesn’t need CNN.com to tell her that she is “not simply a ball of ice and rock.”

In 2006 a group of international scientists took Pluto’s planet status away from her saying she was too small and distant to be apart of our Solar System. But now new pictures, taken by the Hubble Telescope, show that there is more to this dwarf planet than meets the eye. Check out her new “glamour shots” taken just before Pluto goes on her 248- year orbit around the Sun.

And please note: planet or dwarf planet, Pluto doesn’t care. She is happy with who she is regardless of what a group of “international scientists” has to think about her.

It’s called “Tom Tom Magazine”. It is the brain-child of Mindy Abovitz, a 10 year vet who is currently the drummer for Taigaa, an all-female experimental post-punk band.

“Tom Tom” is now available on newsstands. For more info check out their website: tomtommag.com for killer profiles, rockin’ features & events, their picks for “Drummer of the Week”, and even a section for up and coming Kid Drummers!

Look at what this lucky Space Cadet got for Christmas!

MWGG super fan Chai is a lucky girl indeed. Her creative, and very talented, father decided to make her holidays extra special by hand crafting a skateboard featuring Chai’s favorite Galaxy Girl- Pluto!

According to Chai’s father, “It’s a one and only, just for her”.

We here at MWGG Central Control are very, very jealous.

"A Dolly for Sue"

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! I’m back to work on doll orders while I still have some free time.

Here are a couple of faces for upcoming dolls. I can’t believe I’m on yet another Venus doll! She is clearly the homecoming queen of the Girlaxy.


These two lovely ladies went out to their new home just in time for Christmas. Hope you’re enjoying them Paulette!!

In the meantime, there’s some really important, exciting negotiate-y stuff going on behind the scenes that could make 2009 a big year for the gGirls. Please wish me luck!!

Over and out,
