Michigan is getting cooler.
Youth In Revolt, starring Michael Cera, Steve Buscemi, Ray Liotta and others, is being shot in Ferndale, Michigan. Just a few miles north of downtown Detroit. Just up the street from my house.
This is good news for me, because now I can activate my Emergency Hotness Wooing Strategy Should Michael Cera Ever Come to Ferndale Plan.
I wonder if they will want any help making the movie? Movies are quite laborious, I have heard. I have many skills that would be useful to a movie-maker, such as:
- Knowing What is Funny or Not Skills
- Haircutting Skills
- Drawing Skills
- Bicycle-Riding Skills
- Friend Skills
The last skill will likely prove to be most important, when I am face to face with Michael Cera. When I ride my bike back and forth down their street 5,000 times a day. When he falls in love with me.
Thank you, ‘Michigan Movie Tax Break
July 21 Update:
Well, the shoot is just about to wrap up in Ferndale. It’s been exciting scenery for my after-work jogging/stalking. I can’t resist checking everything out. It’s the most exciting thing going on, so I’m there. That’s the way it is. And the crew/cast have been really, really friendly. They seem to feel bad about taking over our street.
Really, I don’t mind.
I drew this, just for fun. What if I gave it to him? Maybe he would make copies, and hand them out to his friends. Friends that he wishes would be “just friends.” It would take the awkwardness out of so many situations.
