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

Lucas Aaron Copycat

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

“Cheeseheads: The Documentary” Movie Trailer


Introducing (well it’s been on Youtube for a week) the “Cheeseheads: The Documentary” Movie Trailer, affectionately titled “A Brief History Of Wisconsin”.  It’s a lot of fun, says many great things about Wisconsin, and poses the deeper question of what exactly a Cheesehead is.  Of course I leave you hanging, but that’s the whole point of … Continue reading

Now Some Love From Wisconsin TV News (WQOW)

WQOW Front Page

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

Spreading The Cheesehead Love (Of Wisconsin)

GBPG Cover

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

Mitch Henck Let Me On His All New Show

Mitch Henck Smiling

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

EAA In Oshkosh, What A Ride, err Flight!

EAA Wall Of War

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

Confused Arrows ELEVA

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

Northwoods Brewing Company (Eau Claire)

NW Brew Pub EXT01

Had a chance to visit the Northwoods Brewing Company in Eau Claire, which is inside the Northwoods Brew Pub (Near Oakwood Mall).  Great beer, great atmosphere, and if it had been summer, a grea view of the river.  Love the decor of this place, real Northwoods (of course), almost like something out of Twin Peaks … Continue reading

Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival Fun

Curd Fest Banner

Ellsworth is, of course, the cheese curd capital of Wisconsin, and frankly, the world.  I covered how cheese curds are made at their factory for the documentary, and decided I had to check out the Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival to see just how much people love them.  They do, even having them on their pizzas, … Continue reading

Wisconsin Cheese Cow Lexxy’s Day Trip To Ashland

Lexxy ASHLAND 05

My travel sidekick Lexxy (the blow up cow to promote Wisconsin Cheese), always seemed to get the best view of everything.  Ok, just having a little fun with her.  Ashland was definitely my kind of town, and South Shore Brewing my kind of place to grab a great Wisconsin Beer.  Another neat thing are the … Continue reading

Where Manhole Covers Go To Be Born…

Neenah Foundry 01

Okay, so the title is silly, but there’s really only one place in the United States that makes manhole covers for pretty much everyone all around the country, and that’s the Neenah Foundry in Neenah.  I got to take a tour of the place with camera in hand, got exceptional footage (like one of those … Continue reading

Duel Cheesehead Connection To Shotgun Lovesongs Novel

Shotgun Lovesongs CROP

Interestingly, there is a duel Cheesehead connection to the recently published Nickolas Butler debut novel “Shotgun Lovesongs”, that being that the author lives in Northern Wisconsin (in a rural area next door to a buffalo farm), and that the books cover photo was taken by, well, me, also from Wisconsin and a proud Cheesehead.  The … Continue reading
