The Man Behind That Cheeseheads Movie Got On WTMJ 620

Thanks to John Mercure and all of the great people on WTMJ 620 Wisconsin Afternoon News (thanks Erin for the extra effort), we were able to get on the Wisconsin Afternoon News segment of WTMJ 620 for a fun five minute interview about the documentary and the journey it took to make it.  I had … Continue reading

Hanging With Lucas Cates

Had a good time hanging with my pal Lucas Cates today in Madison.  Lucas has a couple of awesome songs we were able to use (with his permission) in the film, including his humorous “Quarterback Copycat” (Click Here Quarterback Copycat Video).  He also has a cameo appearance in the end credits of the film, a fun … Continue reading

Now Some Love From Wisconsin TV News (WQOW)

WQOW News 18 out of Eau Claire showed us some love when they did a piece on the documentary over the weekend, thanks to reporter Emma Wheeler.  Not only did we get a really good piece that captures (if briefly) the essence of what the film is about, but we got the lead story for … Continue reading

Finally 21

Now They Can Legally Drink Their Own Beer

Turning 21 has its pleasures, including being able to legally drink beer (except in Wisconsin, which doesn’t quite have the same laws as elsewhere).  But the pun is fun in this case since the Dallas located brewery known as Valkyrie is celebrating its 21st year.  Confusing?  Maybe.  Fun?  Hell yeah.  Ann & Randy are awesome, … Continue reading

Spreading The Cheesehead Love (Of Wisconsin)

The Green Bay Press Gazette, along with the Fond du Lac Reporter, and the Oshkosh Northwester, ran feature stories on the documentary this weekend.  I knew it was coming, since we did the interview a couple of months back, but I had no idea that Gannett media would be so awesome as to publish it … Continue reading

Gotta Love The New Wisco Hotel In Fond du Lac

I finally got to stay at the new Wicso Hotels Holiday Inn Express in Fond du Lac a short while back, and it was awesome.  Exceptionally designed for the business traveller such as myself, well not a business traveller so much as traveling on business.  But you get the point.  It has a flavor of … Continue reading

Mitch Henck Let Me On His All New Show

Yes, he did let me on his show, but we’re old friends, and he does show up in the documentary several times, so it seems a fair exchange.  Had a great time talking with him about the documentary.  You can check out the interview at the link below.   More to come as the media … Continue reading

On The Field At The Brett Favre’s Legends Game!

Oh what fun it is to be on the field with Brett Favre and other retired Packers.  I guess making a documentary about Cheeseheads has some payoff, as it got me a media pass to the Brett Favre Legends Game at Camp Randall stadium in Madison.  I took far too many pictures and shot a … Continue reading

Brett Favre Forever A Packers Hall Of Famer

After all those years of never getting to see Brett Favre at Lambeau Field, I was determined to be at his induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall Of Fame (and number retirement).  Thanks to my pal Steve “The Owner” Tate for getting me a ticket (it was sold out months ago).  I would have … Continue reading

EAA Wall Of War

EAA In Oshkosh, What A Ride, err Flight!

Didn’t get to EAA this year, though I did grab these photos a couple years back when visiting.  We included EAA in the documentary because what’s more Cheesehead than having fun with family and friends in the tens of thousands at a time, and being creative and inventive, while loving the outdoors.  I could go … Continue reading

Ten Wonderful Wisconsin Oddities

The title says it rather clearly, these are ten shots of some of the wonderful oddities I’ve encountered in my travels around Wisconsin making this documentary (that is now finished, working on release screenings and dates for this fall).  There’s a little note below each photo to let you know a bit about it. * … Continue reading

U.W. Oshkosh, A Visual Representation

U.W. Oshkosk several connections to what we did in the documentary.  It’s where I interviewed Randall Davidson for the history of Wisconsin Public Radio, where the Fredric March Theatre is, and also where we had good success with contributions in post-production.  That it’s a lovely campus makes for a great visual representation fo the campus … Continue reading

Brett Favre’s Legends Game at Camp Randall Stadium

One last time to see the legend play in Wisconsin.  This should be awesome.  Go if you can, or I’ll try to cover it on the site if my media pass comes through.  It’s for a great cause and you can find out all about it by clicking the photo below to go to the official … Continue reading

Get Your Cheesehead On With Active Foam Products

My friend Jeff Kahlow of Big Guy Hats, who is also featured in the documentary that you will soon see, is the artist that makes all of those killer Hodag, deer, Lambeau, beer keg, Packers, and about a million other styles of art-cheeseheads.  And he gets his custom foam products from Active Foam Products.  While … Continue reading

Wisconsin Senate Approves 70 MPH Speed Limit

Nice to know, if you’re trying to get somewhere fast, but I prefer to drive the back roads of Wisconsin as you never know what you’ll find, be it interesting, odd, or fun. And then there’s that whole “it’s so utterly beautiful” thing. * * * * * *
