- Basking, bacteria ridden saliva, biting animals and tracking them down until they die of infection... then I eat them, posing for those wacky people who keep showing up on my island with their cameras to film me and my buddies, large mammals, swimming... but really, I'm just mainly into the basking, biting and eating things...

Topics I've Started
09 April 2008 - 03:54 AMI've been taking walks on an almost daily basis. PKJ comes with often. I always have my camera with me.
I've been watching, over the past few weeks, as craftsmen (and women) transform an intersection on Main St. into depression era Sioux City, SD. Unfortunately, I do not have any before pictures of Main St. to contrast and compare with the slow change they've been working on.
This is a facade they've erected around the park. No, it's not finished yet.
What the facade is hiding. Sometimes security guards walk on top of this stuff at times to keep an eye on things (and to make the rest of us jealous because WE don't get to walk on movie sets.)
I'm speculating that this building is the reason for the shoot here. Johnny Depp is playing John Dillinger. This building was obviously a bank building way back when. Makes sense.
There are a lot of really cool signs they are putting up. This one is over the entrance to the upper level apartment stairs.
The South Side Drug sign is over the back entrance to my local comic book shop, House of Heroes. Good shop, cool staff, lots of nerd stuff for gamers and comic book geeks.
The Exclusive Company sits on the South East corner of the intersection where the filming will take place. I'll give you an e-cookie if you can tell me why they are doing extensive work to the outside of this building for the filming. Oh, and to plug another local business: The Exclusive Company is THE PLACE in town to get your music and movie needs, and your home entertainment and car audio electronics. They even stock a bit of vinyl.
The signs above the stores are fake. The real businesses are listed on those paper signs hanging over the doorways.
Hope you enjoy the pics.

17 October 2007 - 11:37 PMI've been talking with a new player who is in need of people to play some woodsball with. She doesn't drive, but she does have her own marker. She just doesn't have people to go to a field with. I've urged her to post here, but she says she's too shy. She's only played once, she loved it.
Please, help a fellow baller out. If you can give her a lift to a field, introduce her to some more players, if you can give her some tips and show her the ropes, she'd appreciate it and so would I.
You can reply here or PM: dragon76
12 October 2007 - 07:08 AMI just thought this simple missive would suffice. Good luck, kiddo. I know there's more than a few that will miss your insight and abrasive nature while you're away. I likely won't be online much this weekend, so I thought this shouldn't wait much longer. Keep in touch whenever you can.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Animal expert Jack Hanna and an 11-month-old flamingo became trapped while trying to squeeze through an airport security turnstile. It took firefighters to finally get the flamingo out.
Hanna, the director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and a frequent guest on nationally televised talk shows, was returning from a zoo fundraiser with a mongoose, a small leopard and the flamingo. Three other people were with them.
The entourage arrived at the Ohio State University Airport just after midnight Sunday to find the terminal closed. The only way to leave the tarmac was through a 10-foot-tall metal turnstile with several horizontal bars - not the easiest exit to squeeze through when you're traveling with boxed-up animals, Hanna said.
"I never thought about the crate being square and the turnstile being round," he said.
Hanna, 60, pushed the flamingo's 2-foot-by-3-foot compartment into the turnstile, then continued pushing while straddling the crate.
"I was stuck like a worm. My eyes were as big as grapefruits," he said. "I can't describe the feeling in my stomach. I can't move up or down. The bars are on your face."
Hanna said he eventually squirmed free, leaving the flamingo still wedged inside and everyone else trapped on the tarmac. He then walked to a nearby fire station for help. It took three firefighters to hoist the flamingo's crate up and out of the turnstile, he said.
Columbus fire department logs show the firefighters arrived at the airport at 12:30 a.m. for a "flamingo rescue," spokeswoman Kelly McGuire said.
Hanna joked that the next time he flies through the airport, the biggest animal he'll bring is a gerbil.
