Don't get me wrong - I am VERY VERY happy for the people that get to see the Chicago Premiers of Public Enemies today and tomorrow.
I'm hoping to be getting photo's and stories as they happen starting this afternoon from the Chicago Premier and a movie review later tonight. The first from the real deal movie.
However - and I have tried to put this emotion lower in my brain stem, trying to cover it with baseball thinking but it's always there lurking. I'm feeling slightly slighted by Universal City Studio.
Not that I expected anything as I did not start this blog for any other reason then to get news out to Columbus people about the movie. But then I heard a while back that New Line Cinema invited the "Snakes On The Plane" blogger (like me) to their premier. sigh, I would have liked that. I would have liked SOME recognition for writing about the movie for the last 491 days. Maybe a free poster? a key chain? a participation ribbon? I WAS MENTIONED BY NAME IN VANITY FAIR!!
"There’s a fellow named Rod Melotte in Columbus, Wisconsin, where they’re filming most of this week, who, I swear, has forsaken his day job to post around the clock."
O well. Such is life.
OH - watch for The Isthmus in the next few weeks - I'll have some words about the movie and Columbus in both the online version and the paper version.
Speaking to the Friday Premier - Graham Man (who was invited) is looking for others heading to Chicago from the Wisconsin area. Give him a shout out (ok - email him at email@example.com if you are looking for a ride or whatever.
Also Nancy Osterhaus will be attending today's Premier and I believe it's her birthday???
A lot of people are whining about the "digital" thing about the movie. How it does not LOOK like the 1930s and all that crap.
Hello!!! In an interview with Micheal Mann he said that if you were in the 1930's Chicago and other places would not have had a "special" look. It would have been colorful and vibrant, like real life. So that was the look he want. REAL! Not 16mm Black and White LOL.
OH - the movie is 2 hours and 17 minutes ans because of that the Columbus Premier (which I will be attending (but taking tickets and working) will start at 7:15 and NOT 7:30 this means be there earlier and pass it on!!!
OK - enough Public Enemies makes me feel non-happy and that is wrong of me.
Seriously - I'm sorry, I'm sort of surprised I feel this way, where is this coming from anyway???? Is this triggering some latent memory from the past? Was I slighted in a kindergarten play or something and have been ignoring an emotion for this for 40 (or more) years? hmmmmm deep thoughts! I shall continue to ignore the emotion.
I GOT CHILLS!!!
Trevor Hoffman is human, and the Brewers still won. Now that THAT is out of the way maybe he can relax. I did read that the brewers are now 2-0 in 11 inning games that take over 4 hours and they win by a score of 9-8. Take it to the bank!!
Pretty interesting what is happening in Iran. They have even killed protesters and it is bringing out more people. The internet has not been shut down but the government has made it into a crawl. Still Twitter is running because it uses less bandwidth.
No longer are only school and young adults protesting but now entire families and the work force are protesting.
Keep tuned to the weather this afternoon - could get rocky.
OH - check out the yellow . . . . .flowers? that have popped up next to the mail box garden. Does anybody know what they are? I'm assuming a pretty weed of some sorts!
Sort of fuzzy - it was windy.
Have a great day and stay tuned for Red Carpet Premier Updates.
OH - one funny thing. a Photographer from US Magazine contacted us about The Public Enemies Columbus Premier . . .
Can you please credential me for your premier in Columbus?
Also, going on that day. Is there a and/or press line event?
I'm not sure there will be a press line event but I'm going to make sure I know who I'm wearing just in case.
