Is That Cobblestone In Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy To Meet Me?

MOVIE ALERT!!

They have taken all the cobblestone up from the street in Columbus and talking to crew in Julies Java House it seems the schedule has been changed to dates yet unknown. Remember the Milwaukee shoot has been push back a week. I

I don't think this is a week but with ROTTEN weather (snow) in the forecast for the first part of this week maybe a few days????

More when I find out.
----------------------


With a title like that you know that we had a fun time at the Kurth last night. I was forced to call up the Grinder weather umbrella over Columbus as there were Tornado's all around but they opened and we're all safe.

However - lets get to some PE news.

Monday morning they are filming in Beaver Dam and then production is coming back to Columbus for a few days. If you want to see JD you are going to have to work at it as nobody knows the timing of the shoots. Night filming is rough on spectators.
++++++++
JP (yes the photog JP we have been talking about) delivered chain link fencing next to Jenny's house as it seems they are thinking the yellow ribbon is not going to hold this time around. I wonder if Jenny will have to climb over the fence to get outside her house.

JP loved the Columbus look and met our Mayor Nancy Osterhaus. I'm sure he also noticed all of the 8x10 photos of Johnny and acting scenes in store windows that were on the set selling for $40 a piece.

I think if JD wans to donate 10% of his profits to the CAC we should let him and provide a link to his yet to be built site. Others are selling photos in plain site and not donating (of course they probably do not know they CAN donate!).
++++++
The Little Bohemia fire seems to be a little more exciting then first publicized.

It seems that 911 was called when sparks were noticed coming out of a room in the upstairs.

Lighting had over heated and was burning through a false ceiling that was put in by Universial . The fire then burned through the real ceiling and was lapping at the insulation in the attic.

As we all know this is a very old tinder dry wood building and if the fire was not caught when it was . . . . bye bye Little Bo. The volunteer fire departments of Manitowish Waters and Winchester arrived (which had a record turn out for this fire) with six fire trucks and they put out the fire saving a lot of embarrassment. I'm sure MANY people on this blog thank you from all our hearts!

Oddly the day of the fire was 74 years and 1 day from when Dillinger actually made his escape.

I can not imagine what was going through Michael Manns brain when these events were unfolding. He loves using actual buildings and as reported here they spent a LOT of time fixing up Little Bo, taking out the original bullet hole windows with EXTREME care not to damage anything.

The burning of Little Bo would have been a disaster.

As a precaution thermal imaging camera's were on set at all times keeping track of anomalies.

I want to thank the Rhinelander DailyNews for covering this event correctly.
-----------------------
To Anonymous 10:43 yesterday.

I'm not mad at you or anything - seriously. And yes 0 I am a little protective over the movie and I think I am justified.

It's just that I know somebody that knows somebody that has a cousin who works with a guy who's mom has a script, and this is a scene that you REALLY do not want to interrupt. Not yelling and I'm sure IMDB has as much info as we do over here.

It's all good and I completely understand why you want to see what is going on. Happy Birthday BTW !! Hang out in Columbus this week - I'm sure you wll see Johnny at some point.

DJ, Jenny, and shakenbsis met Kris, Dale (President of the Columbus Auditorium Corporation CAC) and their awesome dad Robert the Treasurer of the CAC.

It was a great time and I had to keep buying them Pepsi to loosen their lips (I didn't buy any in reality but I'd like to think I did). Lots of "secrets". Such as the tunnels that went from the Kurth brewery to the Kurth mansion across the street during prohibition (did you know that prohibition is responsible for the ice cream industry explosion in the 20's).

Thanks guys for coming, it was great to meet the heavies of the project!

Once their sugar buzz started to where off they started to get sleepy and left. Leaving
DJ, Jenny, and shakenbsis and I to kick it up a notch.

After having a beer
shakenbsis decided it was a good time to run to the car and fetch a machete. Of course this got a few stares from patrons when she walks in wealding a three foot long knife with an evil grin on her face.

She wants to get JD to sign it (well the scabbard). We surmised that if she really wants to meet Jerry, JD's body guard up close she would run up to JD with it.

Anyway the good news was that the machete no longer smells like cow pee . . . . . but that is another story for another time.

We then decide to go into town to look at the set. The cobblestone is all laid out and the one street looks great. I looks like they were doing some trimming and random pieces of cobblestone were laying around near a garbage can so . . . . that's all I'm going to say about the next events. The garbage can will never miss it.

We're up on the corner and reading a posting about the Columbus Square Dance (oh my God!) and Jenny and DJ are laughing and having fun and start to square dancing (it has to be sugar . . or what used to be sugar) .

Swing Your Partner Round and Round
Throw Her in the Toilette
And Flush Her Down.

When some guys on the roof top starting hitting on us yelling. "Hey are you guys from Columbus?" Did you graduate from the High School?" of which Jenny yells back, "YEA - they graduated like 50 years ago!"

Thanks Jen - we love you! . . . most of the time.

And that was the night. We went home and crashed and I hope
shakenbsis arrived in one piece an hour later.

Here is another teaser from the JP collection.


With that - have a great weekend - from cold and windy Columbus

Cheers
Rod

    Has anyone thought of posting some flyers to raise $$$ for the auditorium next to those JD pics for sale in those business windows??? Maybe the PE fans/tourists would donate a few bills or at least change in jars if they knew about the project???

  6. *Warning - non PE content*

    any technically savy folk out there?

    suddenly I'm unable to watch your video links. says, "youhave JavaScript turned off or download the lastest Flash...)

    I have the lastest Flash version and I can't find where to turn JS back on grrr... (looked in Tools/internet options/advanced already) any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm not sure what browser you're using but assuming IE ver. 7....
    double check this stuff.

    Select Tools > Internet Options.
    Click on the Security tab.
    Click the Custom Level button.
    Scroll down to the Scripting section.
    Select Enable for Active Scripting and Scripting of Java Applets.
    Click OK.
    Select YES if a box appears to confirm.
    Click OK. Close window.
    Reload page.

    If this doesn't help.....try rebooting.....lol.

    As for the shooting schedule everything I heard had the disclaimer "As long as it doesn't snow Sunday night...." maybe they know something we don't?

    ReplyDelete
  8. much obliged JP - trying now! = )

    ReplyDelete
  9. jp - thanks!

    they were actually both enabled, but your re-boot sug got me to thinking. I un & re-installed the Flash and now all OK...

    ps: nice video (finally)

  10. Perhaps also weather in Manotowish had something to do with a delay... FWIW, this line was posted early Saturday Morning on IMDb from someone up there...

    last night we had golf ball size hail, heavy rain, very cold, strong winds and finally a blizzard at the end of the night ... what a deal ... tomorrow promises to be well over 20 hours ...

    what's with all the deleted posts?

    please let us know when you hear anymore info about the shooting schedule changes-especially columbus

    thanks for all you do

  16. Rod,

    I saw all those posts. Sometimes a man has got to do what a man's got to do.

    Is the kind of weather you're having normal for Columbus this time of year? Yday it was about tornadoes and now today it's about snow. It's as bad as living along the northern coast of New England!!

    What a bummer it is for Mr. Mann and his "crew", but I guess it goes along with the business.

    and a bummer for all of you who have made arrangements to be in Columbus.

  17. Looks like filming is scheduled for Columbus on the 29th and for Beaver Dam on the 30th.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Since the cobblestone is back up is Monday off? Back on the original schedule

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thanks for the wonderful pics Rod and JP. I live in Oshkosh and was entirely too ill to attend the shooting at all. I have been "living" this whole movie thru other people so I thank you very much for this blog and for everything that you have been doing Rod. I am hoping to make it to Colombus for the shoot. No word as to when it will be?

    Also, I am an avid reader and just wondering what is with all the deleted posts?

    ReplyDelete
  20. The deleted posts were spam...that's why Rod has the word verification for a while....

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks, that really sucks - the spam. Too bad we couldn't spam the spammers!

  22. Rod got spammed. That is what all the deleted posts are and why he added the letter game.

  23. A guy named Chad is an extra in the movie, one of 'the Chicago Eight' (detectives). I see he's added blog entries about his days of filming so far.

    (My hubby works with the guy Dennis that he talks about.)

    Great pictures of the auditorium! I had no idea it was there. How many people does it hold? We spent the afternoon at the HS 'auditorium' watching Partners dance recital of which my daughter was one of the performers. It was awesome as usual. I was thinking how much nicer it would be if it was truly auditorium seating. Sitting in chairs on the gym floor is not ideal, especially for watching the little ones.

  25. We were in Milwaukee all day and drove home through Columbus-- I noticed right away that the barricades had been pulled aside on E16/60 and N73. No cobblestone, but no traffic lights either (what about that state law?) Anyway, it was clear to me that it sure didn't look like filming was about to commence, so I quick checked in here.

    Hope I can post-- I see my captcha quiz, and it's a doozie!

  26. debsmad-thanks for the link to Chad's blog---really gives insight into how difficult filming a movie can be. I guess you just need to assume if you're an extra that you will be bored!! Sounds like his
    5th day was fun though.

    Sorry you got spammed Rod---

  27. ANy idea where they will be on Sunday and Tuesday?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Tara,

    Sundays there usually isn't production due to union rules. From what I understand, this week is a wash due to the weather of the week.

    Hope that helps a little :)

  29. The eagle picture and comments were great. Wi has a lot of Native American spiritual signicance. Miracle, the white buffalo (1994-2004) was born in Janesville. Two other white buffalos were also born on the same farm, 1 in 1997(it only lived a few days) and the other a male born 2006(it lived a little longer but was hit by lightning). Native people and others came from all over when Miracle was born. It signified the return of the White Buffalo Calf Woman (or White Buffalo Woman) and the changes and peace that is to come according to Native prophecy.

    WI also has(had) more mounds than anywhere else in North America. There were 15,000-20,000 mounds in WI at one time, now there are about 4000 left. 75-80% were destroyed by intensive farming and sprawling developement over the years. There were many types of mounds effigy, conical,linear, burial,and pyramids. Aztalan state park in Lake Mills being the most well known. Madison and the isthmus area was loaded with them at one time about 1000 there are a few left in Madison. Plus there are others around the state.

    Maybe the fact that JD is part Cherokee and has been most gracious to everyone here is also of some signicance. Maybe the best give-a-way (a Native custom)that he can give is of himself and the kindness he is showing to everyone. Maybe that will continue for all of us to do the same thing to others. Hopefully the sprit of his ancestors are here and smiling on him and his family for all he has done
