Live from Key West

by Archived Article (2001–2014) Help
Hello everyone! I am having a great time so far. I will be sure to write all about the trip when I get back Wednesday evening. Until then here is a picture of me last night captured by Erik. It is he I am on the telephone with in the photo and I was a little intoxicated at the time. Hey, this is Key West!

So I might be driving down to Key West for a few days this afternoon. I have a friend down there who I miss and have not seen in years. He offered to offset my fuel expenses to come down and visit.

Can I really refuse?

UPDATE: Apparently not. I am leaving within the hour.

I love movies. But even more than that I love real-life movie connections. I suppose in a way it brings a true connection to an otherwise fictional film. While on various vacations across the country, I have made an effort to find shooting locations. I successfully found locations from Sneakers, Ghostbusters, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, The Net and a few others. I should locate and scan those pictures.

In any event, visiting one of my daily read sites surfaced UHF - My 15 Year Pilgrimage, the result of two fans visiting the actual filming locations from the 'Weird Al' Yankovic classic UHF. When I was younger I used to watch this movie constantly. I just finished watching it again and still love it. This tribute complete with "then" screen shots from the DVD and "now" pictures from the locations as they appear today is wonderful. And to think just yesterday I did in fact make a "Spatula City" joke.

Since it fits with the theme of this post, I would also like to point out a similar photologue for the film Back to the Future located at Big Waste of Space. Indeed he also has on-location shots from Ghostbusters as well.
