NOTICE:
To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Contagion related shooting reported near Waukegan lakefront, Amstutz Expressway closed. Two government Black Hawk helicopters overhead this afternoon.

.

Steven Soderbergh's thriller “Contagion” is expected to be released in October of 2011. Film crews today shot action scenes of Black Hawk helicopters zooming along the Amstutz, a very popular piece of highway with filmmakers because it is low-use (part of an incomplete project, it goes nowhere and is only used for local traffic). Film crews should be finished shooting by 6:00 AM tomorrow and the expressway reopened to public.

Only two things could get me to the theater for yet another “OMG, WE ALL GONNA DIE” mutant killer virus movie; Steven Soderbergh has the talent to make it less cliché than all of the others, and Laurence Fishburne NEVER fails in any role.

As awesome as they are to see, I have to say that it is a bit unnerving to have a pair of Black Hawks thunder low over my house.

Greetings from Texas,
Black Hawks workout over HomePlace quite often. I enjoy watching them, but when I think of the thermal targeting systems and the weapons they aim...
There are days I wish that stuff was Science Fiction.

I'm a big fan of Soderbergh, my favorite is The Limey (wonder why). Can't wait for this one, sounds like it's going to be great!
