Worms and Little Bo and other stuff

News from Little Bo

From Char

"I went up to Little Bohemia yesterday afternoon and was across the street from base camp until 9:30 last night. Probably about 100 people there. Saw lots of extras and also found out that the filming is all being done throughout the night.

Last night were the outdoors scenes for the night fight & escape. The night before they didn't rap until 4 in the morning. Only about 12 people there. JD signed autographs & talked to them for about 15 to 20 minutes. So everyone last night didn't even leave base camp until between 8 & 9 pm & assumed they didn't come back until 5 or 6 this morning.

No sighting of JD but we did see Sean Penn(not Sean) & Christian Bale. It was fun but got really cold & I had to work today so couldn't stay all night. They are filing there until Friday as well. Don't know how long they are there on Friday."
---------------
As for the photo thing.

Seems some people are uncomfortable and that is fine. JP understands. Personally I don't have a problem. I've seen the photos and they are awesome and not just of JD but the entire crew. However I feel that if some are uncomfortable that is enough for me and as long as JP understands I'm down with the decision.

On a side note JPD is actually working for Universal today as a delivery grunt.
-------------------
As far as finding filming locations. I feel this is not the place to be searching for the burial scenes. Finding the locations can only hurt the movie and disrupt what I feel will be some of the toughest acting scenes in JDs career. So I WILL delete any comments from people searching. Go over to IMDb for that.

MY MOM - EV's birthday.

She says thank you thank you thank you for the "wonderful " birthday wishes. If she knew how to comment back she would have (I'll teach her this weekend). You made a young 80 year old very happy.
----------------------
Big Bad Mama was scouting Little Bo a few days ago and took a few photos of white cars and trucks. Nothing exciting so she started looking for other things to photograph and this appeared.


Way to go Sharon!! As BBM says "You can always get photos of Johnny but rarely a Bald Eagles".

We have had many readers from Japan and France so I'll explain a little. The Bald Eagle is Americas National bird. It is the only Eagle unique to America. It was on the brink of extirpation in the United States but now there are about 20,000.

The Bald Eagle is a sacred bird in some North American cultures, and its feathers, like those of the Golden Eagle, are central to many religious and spiritual customs among Native Americans.

Eagles are considered spiritual messengers between gods and humans by some cultures.

You will find a new Donation button on the . . . left (I guess is over THERE now). This is for Paypal donations and credit cards.

Here is how it will work. I'll keep a running tab on the . . left and every $50ish in donated money to the Auditorium fund I'll send a check.

I'll also post the first name of the donor to make sure I don't miss anybody.

This is how you have helped so far.

Five letters to the Columbus Auditorium Corp (awesome thanks)

$76.00 - in donations that went right to the CAC

$57.63 Paypal as of this morning

Thanks to
Michael & Peggy from Waukesha WI
Susan from Beaver Dam WI
Dianne from Tennessee Ridge, TN
Kathy from Columbus WI
Christine from Mechanicsburg, PA

Total = $133.63

I'll send a check Monday.

It is warming to see people care about preserving history. Hugs to all.
--------------------------
A photo from JP of Michael Mann giving Marion Cotillard a hug.

I never got a hug from either of them or Emilie de Ravin. I did get hugs from non-movie stars though and I'm sort of sitting on the fence about letting Michael Mann hug me anyway.

------------------------------
Gardening and Worms.

I have had several people say that that unknown growth in my garden is Coreopsis Zagreb. I had a lot planted in that area so it must be those sort of spreading.

Worms - as I was digging last weekend I noticed a good amount of worms. This was good.

However - when we take Blake our dog for walks it normally is like walking a sack of potatoes. He is a sniffer and not a walker. Lately he was being REAL slow and stopping to eat things in the road. I stopped him and realized he was eating yummy dried up crispy worms.

Last night we had thunder and rain and I go to the driveway and see four, one foot long little finger size HUGE worms. I pick them up and put them in the garden. Diane comes out and I comment on all the other little worms on the driveway. YUCK she says "don't run them over".

I back out and as we start up the hill. THE ENTIRE ROAD IS WORMS!!! Every square foot LITERALLY is worms. Diane is squealing like a little girl and I'm steering the car to where the least amount of worms are. I feel the back wheels losing grip, I'm losing traction (trs-2). Serious worm action on the road.

It's like a horror movie. NIGHT OF THE WORMS.

I guess we can take Blake for walks for a while.
-----------------
Any comments on the new look? Gotta keep things form getting stagnant.

See you at the Kurth tonight!

Rod

  1. Like the new look.. love the bald eagle photo... cool with the pictures... and very cool about the burial scene info not being shared. I didn't really feel comfortable about people trying to scope out the location. The last thing needed during that is an 'I LOVE YOU JD" or just random cheering. That is one of the scenes I personally, would prefer to see as a final product.

    But, if there is filming again downtown.. I'm down with that :)

    I think that is it :)

  2. Love the new look!

    Great picture of the bald eagle too. We have quite a few of them right by my house, but they sit up too high in the trees for me to get a good picture of one. DH was sitting in his chair in the living room the other day and saw one grab and fly off with a Sandhill Crane. Those are big birds! We were shocked!

    Oh how I wish I could go to the BD shoot and Columbus again. When I lived in BD we use to go to the Rogers for breakfast after working 3rd shift. That was before they turned it into apartments.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Oh, how creepy with all the worms on the road! I've been noticing what seems to be more than normal this year too, but not that many!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I will put my vote in for "don't like the new look" only because the header picture is not from Columbus.

    The picture is great, don't get me wrong, but I think you should stick to the Columbus roots.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Rod, I completely agree with your decision not to aid the burial site vultures. There is some information that should be kept under wraps in order to make this the best possible film experience for all of us on July 1, 2009.

    P.S. Thanks for the picture of the Mann/Cotillard hug. Please more Cotillard pics if possible. Also, nice new site look:)

    ReplyDelete
  6. There is a report on Johnny Depp Reads "Public Enemies" page that the shooting of Public Enemies will now extend into July. I hope and pray there isn't an actors strike to mess things up.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I guess the new look is ok. Who is JP? and I didn't understand the Sean Penn mention was he there or not.
    Lovely picture of the Bald Eagle we have a few of those in my area Pacific Northwest.
    Agree with the burial scene not being public. I am enjoying your blog, thanks.

  8. Billie,

    There was talk of Sean Penn being on set but it was a case of mistaken identity :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Love the look of the new site. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I am not sure if somebody else had reported this here yesterday or not, but it is so interesting that I thought I would copy my blog from IMDb.

    Apparently the "little fire" at Little Bohemia two days ago was potentially much more serious than first reported. Didn't the fire happen on the anniversary of the Dillinger/FBI firefight? Humm. . . . Thank God the old wooden lodge didn't burn down to the ground - that would have been a shot heard around the world.

  11. Sorry, I have to put my vote in for not liking the new look.

    I liked the Columbus Historic Downtown banner better...

    So who is all coming to Kurths tonight???

    ReplyDelete
  12. As for the header - it'll keep changing when I find photos that will work. Nothing is ever permanent.

    I'll have a new one tomorrow.

    And will continue looking for shots that will work.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The bald eagle photo is amazing.

    Thanks for the warning about the worms near where you live. I am terrified of them! ICK!

    Kurth - members of the Auditorium group are apparently going to show up. They rarely come out from behind the stage shadows, so please be understanding if they're a little shy. (sorry guys!!) :)

    I agree with the decision on the burial scene location. There are enough public scenes available for people to watch.

    THANK YOU to EVERYONE that has contributed to the Auditorium - letters, emails, donations. We can take all of your letters to the City Council meeting next week.

  14. Rod, why don't you alternate your banner pictures, like they seem to do over at Johnny Depp Reads. I like the new banner, but I also like the old banner (especially with the bullet holes). Why must we choose?

    ReplyDelete
  15. bullet holes ?????? were there bullet holes?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like the new look! Very nice, Rod.

    No Kurth's for me tonight, unless you guys are still gonna be swigging around 10pm. (That's when the songs start, right?)

    Love that the barricades are back up and the detour signs are back on the highway! :D I had a dream about filming last night. I was very close to the downtown action and Michael Mann handed me this paper that had a face on it...it was very weird--and why would I interact with Michael Mann in my dream when Johnny Depp was so near??? Who's writin' these dreams anyway?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I must have missed a day. What is this with the burial site?
    Do you mean the death of Dillinger? Have people been speculating as to where will that happen?
    There's not much choice as to what could be the Bioghraph, but wherever it is, it will probably be a closed set. It would be very strange if JD had to die and then get up, wave and smile, then die again. He is a great actor, but that would be impossible.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The burial scene in discussion is actually that of Red Hamilton where Dillinger has to bury him :) There is some chatter about where and when it is going on. Rod and most of us here agree... we don't want to know.

    No Kurth's for me... although Michelle tells me I need to go next time when she is back.


    I hope you all have a fabulous weekend :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. "bullet holes ?????? were there bullet holes?" Oops!!! I am sorry, but must confess that I start my day going to the Johnny Depp Reader "Public Enemies" page and then go to your blog (which is hot buttoned). They have the neat bullet holes. Maybe I am getting too much Public Enemies for my own sanity.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think it's a great idea to change out the banner from time to time. I like that you added the Paypal option; I sent money this A.M. and can possibly send more next payday; and the payday after that..............

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like the new look, Rod. Nice and clean.

    ReplyDelete
  22. New Look ~~ mmmm, warm and inviting, almost like walking into an old time parlor. I like. :) And I like the night-time picture.

    It is wonderful that the eagles have come back from the brink of extinction! And wonderful that we don't have to trek to Alaska to see them. There is a resident eagle nest up in Kaukauna, near the paper mill on the Fox River (mmmm, smelly...) and we have had individuals on the south shore of Lake Winnebago for a number of years now. They like the living along the Wisconsin River, too. We saw one just north and east of Fond du Lac this past weekend. Not in full adult plumage like this picture, but **Always** thrilling to see!

    Worms: yes, the ground was saturated from the rain, so the worms pop out to breathe. Unfortunately, they end up crushed on the roads, and [do not read if you are squeamish] together with the crushed toads, create kind of a mush.... Neighbor picks up the live nightcrawlers and uses them as fishing bait. Fortunately, our dog does not care for the taste, so she ignores all, crispy ones included. Night of the Worms sounds like a wonderully cheesey old-hollywood-low-budget-horror flick. Think Michael Mann might be interested? Probably not so much...

    Have fun at Kurths!

    ReplyDelete
  23. FYI- Milwaukee News Channel 12 reported this morning that filming will not start here until May 5th. So next week sounds like Columbus for sure!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Night of the Worms sounds right down Ed Woods alley lol....

    Thumbs up for the new look. I really like it. The Eagle pic is fabulous!! I friend of mine has some nesting about and hours drive away from where he lives near Cincinnati, OH. Three years ago they nested there and had 3 eaglets (what he calls them). They have come back each year to have their young. This year there's 2 babies in the nest. Can't get close enough to get pics but when they start learning to fly the pics he gets are awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  25. FYI--Lots of activity up at the house on the hill right now. Props are coming back. A big truck just went by my house and parked in front of the mansion.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Rod.... LOVE the new look.... and the new pic fits it very well.
    It would be cool to see different pics each day/week or whenever the mood stikes you.
    And how awesome is that Bald Eagle pic!!! Gave me goose bumps!!! Such a beautiful bird! Thanks for sharing that!!
    Burial scene: I too think that scene should be saved for the movie viewing. I cant imagine how emotionally taxing that will be on Johnny and the less outside interuptions the better, I would think.
    As always... thanks for the great blog!!!!
    ~Minxie in Cali~
    PS... you all enjoy the cooler weather in WI, we will in the mid 90's this weekend!!! Is is still Spring? =0P

    ReplyDelete
  27. I know about bald eagles. I like them!

    anyway, It's really killing me to wait till 2009 to see the Lt.Bohemia scenes.

    ReplyDelete
  28. BTW, The new look's cool, It looks somewhat elegant.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Absolutely love the new look.
    The area around Little Bohemia is beautiful for vacationing and the wildlife. You are nestled very near to both the Nicolet National Forest and Chequemequon National Forest, and near the Ojibwe lands of Lac de Flambeau.
    I am so glad people are donating. I hope I get a chance once we are done with our move.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Rod,

    Your blog really looks great!!

    You posted (as always) a lot of great stuff on your blog.

    I love the picture of the Eagle, thanks Sharon for sharing and letting Rod post it here for us all to see. :)

    Thanks for the tally on the what is coming in for the auditorium. It will be cool to see how the donations grow.

    Thanks Char for the update on Little Bo. It's great that Johnny came out AGAIN to greet everyone. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOVE the banner photo!!! gave me chills, I understand it's not Columbus though... but still LOVE IT!

    and the bald eagle = )

    I have a cricket story much like your worms, EEEEEWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!! I think the worms might be creepier yet.

    Gotta go, can't wait to get to KURTH's = )

    ReplyDelete
  32. For the very first time my husband is excited about something going on related to this blog!

    The beautiful eagle!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The banner he has up right now is of Columbus.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Not sure if the Kurth is open - Tornado warnings - tornado just west of C-bus.

    Tennis ball size hail - probably not the best night to go out LOL

    ReplyDelete
  35. great weather to come home to ..blah!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Looks like most of the severe weather is all gone now.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Like the new look, Rod.

    Great eagle picture-have seen the eagles on the river near Sauk city. (We did a cruise to Alaska last year-went on wildlife watching tours-coming back to the ship there was an eagle perched on a lampost in downtown Ketchikan! If you have a chance to visit Alaska GO it is truly amazing.

    Stay safe everyone in WI tornado and thunderstorm warnings/watches everywhere!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow!! Tornado warnings!! hope you all made it through okay. let us outsiders know how you are doing in WI!!

    shakenbsis ~ whatever you do, don't kill any crickets, it's bad luck!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. love the new look. good picture of the eagle they really are a majestic animal... any definite word on the filming? I am seeing the state journal says monday am downtown columbus, I thought tuesday in columbus and monday in beaver dam?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Monday Morning downtown Beaver Dam.

    Then they come back in the afternoon.

    ReplyDelete
  41. BRAVO Rod... just say no to the burial scene.

    It's no secret Dillinger robbed banks.I really do have to applaud the filmmakers and actors for being so willing to take the risks with the rewards of working in such fluid, dynamic and real locations. The energy and adrenaline of adapting to the moment will electrify the heist scenes.

    That said... give the actors the space they need for the emotionally delicate scenes that were never meant to witnessed by another human being let alone a crowd of gawkers. Of course, the film crew doesn't count.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Rod - Make sure you read the email I just sent you before you post tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Well soooorry, I'm the big bad burial culprit.

    I was simply searching for where filming would take place on my birthday. Because I wanted to see the filming on my birthday. I heard they were doing a burial scene then, so I searched for its location. I wasn't aware it was such an "emotional" scene.

    God forbid some of us just are honestly interested in the filming and, yes, the actors. I've been interested in this type of thing all my life, yet younger "fangirls" are being attacked for their behavior. Granted, squealing is over-the-top, but what on earth do you expect? We're teenage girls. Give us a break.

  46. The little girl has a point. For some reason, quite a few people are getting possessive over this movie. Shame on you.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Christine!!

    re: whatever you do, don't kill any crickets, it's bad luck!!

    Is THAT what happenned??? At least now I know what went wrong. If it's bad luck to kill a cricket how about accidentally killing hundreds at least? yikes

    seriously, is there a story behind why it's bad luck to kill a cricket?

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm a little late but I looove the new look !

    The worm story, ewwwww ! It would be me, I think I would have dreamed about it all night long... and probably during to weeks ! ^^ lol

    Oh and of course, great pics as usual and uh, well don't worry, I'm sure you'll get your hug finally.
