Love, excitement, the Depp Effect

Well the filming is all done in Milwaukee, the cast and crew finished up on Friday morning and then headed back to the Chicago area. However, the love, excitement and Depp Effect are still being felt in WI. Blazn and Shakes among others were lucky enough to get their moment with Johnny. They braved heavy rain, lightning, tornado warnings and cold weather, but it all paid off when the rain stopped in the early morning hours and Johnny came out! You can read about Blazn's experience here........ and Shakes experience here! Great blogs gals.... love your pics too!!!! Another friend Peg, went to Milwaukee as well. Peg was kind enough to email me her pics and has allowed me to share them with everyone here... THANKS PEG!!!!! I hope you enjoy them.


The Historical Society Building Bank robbery scenes were filmed here.


The "chairs" I wonder what the security guard was thinking!


Jerry and Johnny


Preparing for the scene Johnny & Michael Mann


The get-away!


Johnny!!!

Again thanks to Peg for the pics.... and Blazn and Shakes for sharing their stories. We can never get enough of Johnny! =)

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This weekend is closing weekend of our beloved Corona Faire.... The crew and their Commodore will be invading, pillaging, and plundering!!!

Here are some pics from last years closing weekend......





I am sorry, I won't be online much tonight as we will be having another after hours party.... but I will try to check in from time to time..... Please have fun and play in my absence!!


Wishing you all a DRY, sunshine filled happy day!!!!

~Minxie~ said...

Vicky love... you've got mail!!!

Happy Saturday!!!! :D

Lotus said...

Morning All: Have fun at the faire, Minxie. You will be missed. I know everyone is saying that filming will be done by the end of June, but if it's still happening the first week in July I'd LOVE to make the trip (I'm on vacation)! So keep us posted with info, anyone that has it, PLEASE. And if anyone else is going, I'd love to tag along and help pay for gas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lotus said...

I'd fly, but my broom is in the shop. :(

calypso said...

Happy Saturday all!!
Minxie have fun at the faire, I'm looking forward to hearing all about it tomorrow.

Vicky--I can't believe they swiped your photos!! Jerks. Are you still floating on the clouds?

Lotus-I'd love to make that trip too!

I'm off to a hot air balloon rally later today. I'll try to get my blog up with some pix. They won't be as good as the JD ones though---that can't be beat!!

Lotus said...

Hi, Calypso! (waves) Let's hope they are still filming at the beginning of July> (fingers crossed) Have fun at the Hot Air Balloon Rally. Where is it today?

calypso said...

It's down in Monroe today and tomorrow! Get that broom fixed and fly down!!

The "glow" is at 8:30 weather permitting!

What's happening were you are today?

Lotus said...

Calypso: I'm around Wausau today and I don't think anything is happening here. I'm cleaning (supposed to be, anyway) the house as I have visitors coming soon. I HATE CLEANING!!!! Hope you have good weather for the "glow" tonight.

Lotus said...

Wish I could get my flying monkees to do the cleaning, but they just fling poo around! BTW, Calypso, I like your pic! Even if I am allergic to cats. Some sure are cute!

Blaznfire911 said...

Hello!

I hope youa re having fun Minxie! Thanks for helping me out with my pics! I was really mad this morning!!

BTW Minxie - YOU HAVE MAIL!

Have fun in MOnroe Calypso! My friend's family lives in Monroe, and so does some of my hubbies family...don't ask me where though....bc I have no clue LOL

Rachel Judge :) said...

Love the pics!! Thanks for sharing them with us. Great shots of my favorite guy Jerry. :) You can never have too many photos of Johnny and Jerry. *swoon*

So, Minxie when will you be coming to visit Wisconsin... your pirate ship would be a great mode of transport now. :)

Have a great day!!!!

Rachel

calypso said...

Don't feel bad Vicky, I just got done mowing the lawn and picking up. My payoff is going to go see the balloons.

Lotus--that is my cat Tuxy, (she's yawning). We adopted her about 7 years ago. She's a sweetie and very mellow.

I'll be back later with balloon update!

-Sir Jack said...

Calypso, it looks like rain for you, love. Better hurry.

Just dropping in for a quick hello.
Have a good weekend..crew!
Gotta run loves!

Blaznfire911 said...

Hello and goodbye Sir jack!

Blaznfire911 said...

Hello everyone I am back for a bit...I'll be around if anyone wants to chat.

It's storming again so I cannot walk my doggies as I thought I would :( They hate rain!

So I will be blogging around, or playing games. Will check back!

vicky

shakenbsis said...

Calypso! love your profile pic!

Hey Doc - that's happenned to me too, but it brings a lot of people to my site so I decided to brush it off... grrr... (i'm hoping one day one of my Japanese friends finds my blog!) maybe there will be a silver lining to the blatant piracy!

Lotus is allergic to cats! ;( bummer, poor lotus...

I just put a fireside update on my blog for Rachel!

shakenbsis said...

Minxie - have fun at the faire!!!!

shakenbsis said...

PEG!! thanks for sharing your pics. woo hooo!

Blaznfire911 said...

I just posted a blog on my site. It isn't meant to be directed at anyone, or hurtful...I am just upset with what has happened...both in my email, and online.

Some people are just toooooo crazy!

vicky

Rachel Judge :) said...

Vicky,

I agree with what you said wholeheartedly!!! Most people are good, some people have bad intentions. Fortunately in my experience I have met more good than bad and that is what I will take with me : )

Hugs,

Mrs. Judge

Blaznfire911 said...

Yes! i believe that some people start out with the best intentions! It is those darn tabloids that twist it, and make it into something it isn't!

vicky

Blaznfire911 said...

Anyone seen Lotus, or Jack?

MINXIE COME BACK TO US!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you like what I sent ya!

It was spur of the moment, and I thought it was cute LOL

vicky

Cathy said...

Vicky - That's too bad what happened with your post.

I'm the 1st anon from last night (9:01 - 9:34). I think I have my problem from last night fixed so that I can use my blogger name.

Rachel Judge :) said...

Minxie..

Your blog is so fun! Thanks for letting us play here :)

Rachel Judge

Lotus said...

Hey, Blazn, I'm here!!!! (waves, jumps up & down for attention!) I was just over at your blog leaving you a post---go read it. You'll laugh!

Cathy said...

Hi Lotus!

Lotus said...

Hello, everyone. I don't think Jack will be with us tonight. And you know minxie's out partying with her crew! Lucky lady. What's everyone up to this fine evening?

Lotus said...

HI, Cathy! I can't get a good look at your bird pic. What is on it's chest? Hi, Blazn & Judge!!!!

Cathy said...

It's a belt with a little pouch - where the compass is kept.

I just like the two peg legs. It reminds me of a Spongebob episode.

Lotus said...

Cathy, that's funny! I guess I should have called it the breast instead of the chest; birds don't have chests. :) Poor peg legged bird. At first I thought it was the bluebird of happiness, but it didn't look too happy. LOL

shakenbsis said...

Howdy galpals! I've been catching up on all my blogs today! Whew!!!

No time to hang and just chat...

Hope Minxie is having a great time with her mates...

Peace out y'all as Tessa would say! OK, so she wouldn't say y'all... LOL

Nite Lotus girl, kisses to youon your little green nosie!

Lotus said...

Hello & goodnight Shakes! Sorry to see you leave so quickly, though. Have a good night's rest.

shakenbsis said...

Nite Lotus! still pooped, but finally getting caught up on my sleep! Who knows, maybe by tomorrow, I'll be my old self agian!

calypso said...

Hi guys! Welcome Cathy!
I just have a few minutes then I have to get back to my work.

Vicky-- I read your blog. That's really awful about all those people and the photos. I hope you are feeling better.

My brother, who is a musician, has taught me a lot about people and how handle people/idiots who don't know you and want to glom on to your fame, images etc.

Basically it's this...it's a extremely hard thing to do the first hundred times it happens. These people/idiots don't understand the context of "you" and you can try to explain the context of what, where, who, why till you're blue in the face and it will only bring in more crap & negativity. You have to deny negativity any thought and move toward positive thoughts, actions and people that surround your life.

But that's all easy for me to say...I'm not you and I have no idea what you have personally been put through.

How did I get up on that soapbox?
*jumps off*

Feeling better?

Lotus said...

Well I hate to jump ship (mainly becuase I can't swim), but it's so quiet here tonight I guess I'll be going to bed myself. Sorry if I missed anyone. Talk again tomorrow. Night all!

calypso said...

Hi Lotus, bye Lotus!

shakenbsis said...

OK, I was trying to go to bed, but jsu thad tostop back and say how much I agree with you Calypso!

Nitey nite...

PS: your little Pirate Penguin is adorable Cathy!

NOW i'm outie...

Cathy said...

Nite all!

calypso said...

Nite Shakes, nite Cathy!

Blaznfire911 said...

Awww I missed everyone!

Nice to see you cathy!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY !!!!!

Hello all.... just got up.... need intravenous coffee!!! LOL.....

Will check back later on today!!!!!

Rachel Judge :) said...

Oh Vicky, I feel your pain in the video making. I finally had to go all generic and take out the transitions and stuff. I certainly miss having the good software before the computer went kaput.

Minxie, welcome back to your blog. Thanks for letting us over run it. :) Hope you had fun and the coffee is going in good this morning.

I am off for some Culver's custard with my dad.

Hope everyone is having a great day!!

Mrs. Judge

Blaznfire911 said...

Rachel, what comp program did you use? I can't get mine to load up to my site. I went and bought some software, so hopefully that will work!

HIYA MINX!!! Take an aspirin, and enjoy the day!!!

I'll be back later....going to a BBQ!

vicky

shakenbsis said...

I'm just now getting to my coffee, slept nearly the whole day...

sheesh, that felt good!

Lotus said...

Hello, is anyone out there? Hope you all had a nice day today. Mine was good; unfortunately, it's back to work tomorrow.

Minxie, did you have a fun faire experience? Are you and the crew still partying?

Blaznfire911 said...

I am back from my BBQ!!!

I am trying to work on this video, so I will be around, but might not chat!

I think Minxie is still in bed LOL

vicky

Lotus said...

Good luck with your video, Blazn. I guess I'll be going off to bed. I could use a good night's sleep. Night all! Night Blazn!

Rachel Judge :) said...

Vicky,

I just used Windows Movie Maker. I used to use a kick butt program. I think I might have to go out and buy some software and make a full length movie.

~Minxie~ said...

Hey guys.... sorry, just too worn out to play tonight.... I have some fun pics to share tomorrow....
Hope you all had a great weekend......

Chat tomorrow..... good night all!

Happy Father's Day to the dads of the world!!!! :)

Blaznfire911 said...

That's why I tried to use, and it would not load up :(

I went out and bought this program, and I am not sure that i like it. I cannot get my music up there. Maybe I will give the windows movie maker another try!

Hello Minxie! Sorry you were too tired to talk! Welll I know how that feels! I am still exhausted from this past week, and now I might be going to Illinois this week to see filming again....who knows. See you tomorrow.

vicky

Rachel Judge :) said...

Make sure to make it into a DVD file after the project part. There are some options like to save to dvd. You want to choose that and save it to your computer and then upload it :) Without doing that step it is just a movie maker project and won't upload anywhere.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you need anything else :)

-Sir Jack said...

Minxie, love! I hope you're sipping tea and recovering from the faire. It's going to be a beautiful week here in Wisconsin love! How are things in Cali?

Oy, Wizard of Oz tree lovers--go check me blog...I've a nice a little tree waiting for you on my island!

I'll be checking back later!!
Cheers loves!
