Gyllenhaal & Southpaw Still Chugging Along

Somehow Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, and the rest of the cast and crew of the movie Southpaw are still carrying on locally, despite my sudden retirement from a brief,  and by all accounts meteoric (burning out and falling uncontrollably to earth) week-long career in the film industry. The stars were roaming around town last night, eventually settling in at local college bar Wolfendale’s (the kids call it Wolfie’s now, but in my undergrad years–before they had cages for sexy dancers and lingerie nights–it was Wolfendale’s) and delighting a handful of weekday drinkers, according to a rush of twitter posts.


Today, the Indiana Gazette reports that an additional scene will be shot in the County Courthouse.  Specifically: in the Sheriff’s holding pen.  Sounds like somebody was a bad boy. Lots of fun, a great little diversion for our small college town, and a nice bump for the regional economy.  With any luck, now that we’ve been “discovered,” location scouts will direct more of the many television and movie productions that come to the Pittsburgh region.,20120947/

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
