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
Yes, we got a whole lot of love from the Gannett Media newspaper circuit in Wisconsin. Fours others have included articles in print editions, and on their websites. Click on the pictures below to be taken to the respective articles from different newspapers. This is getting to be a whole world of FUN! * … Continue reading
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
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
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
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
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. * * * * * *
Here’s some killer shots I took while driving the Driftless Area recently. On a sunny day, it’s really hard not to take a good picture in this state. Honestly, it’s pointless in talking about it. Just look at the photos and you’ll see what I mean. So I’ll stop babbling now and let you enjoy … Continue reading
Here’s some shameless plugging for my favorite hotel chain, Wiscohotels.com – I’ll be in FDL for the grand opening of their new Holiday Inn Express at the end of April. Looking forward to checking out their new location, and to get the now finished (minus legal and what not) documentary in front of a crowd. … Continue reading
Awesome Huge Sun Dog Above Rice Lake that I caught a couple of weeks ago. It was one of those too big to be real sort of moments, until you realize what it is. For a brief second I almost thought I was on another planet with two suns, until my fingers started to freeze … Continue reading
No words really needed here. I just find snow on trees fascinating and beautiful. Trees are awesome no matter, snow on them makes it even better. * * * * * *
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
We should be seeing a lot of this during the week as it’s getting warmer here and we Cheeseheads have to represent with what we have on hand.
Driving Highway 25 near Rice Lake and happened to get a dash-cam shot of a snow plow doing its job, and splashing my window. * * * * * *
I don’t know why I am posting this other than that I ran across these photos recently and thought what nice houses they were. Really, this is probably the least important posting ever, but they still are quite lovely homes. * * * * * *
No surprise there.
Only fitting, considering he was and will always be the Wizard Of Waukesha.
