‘The Lone Ranger’ rides out of Creede

CREEDE —By the time this is read, Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer will be shooting and producing “The Lone Ranger” in their Moab, Utah, location.

It is about 30 degrees hotter than Creede and the cast and crew miss our climate, although not the smoke-filled skies which wafted over from the Little Sand Fire daily.

Restaurant, shop and lodge owners in Creede are happy with their through-the-roof-sales, which are doubled and tripled from a year ago.

Forum meeting Germany August 10-12

As every year, we’re doing once again our forum meeting of and in Germany right at the beach of the river Elbe in 19273 Stiepelse, 100km eastern of Germany.

We’ll watch some movies, one movie will be chosen as the motto, and we’ll do a lot of games based on the motto, the decoration and food as well. We sleep in tents, make barbecue and campfire at the beach of the river Elbe.

and Johnny…if you read this…you’re of course invited, too. You could easily anchor in the port of the village with your Vajoliroja.

Johnny Depp Is Said to Buy A Painting by Seattle Artist Kellie Talbot

Ballard-based artist Kellie Talbot makes tightly composed paintings of the eccentric American past of the mid-20th century. She pictures rusted old neon signs seen in daylight (so unlit, fallow), and at close range, as if you were up in their air.

They’re signs of a certain shared history that has splintered; you used to be able to find them all over, from Ballard to Vegas, in places that have since gone their separate ways, aesthetically and economically speaking. What they’re advertising may be gone, but these are such pretty hulks. If the paintings are nostalgic, that’s mitigated by the fact that the signs are suggested rather than seen whole, cut into fragments and details.

Johnny and Vanessa split

News are coming in everywhere that Johnny’s publicist confirmed that Johnny and Vanessa split:

“Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children.”

Unfortunately this is true, we have a third party verification, but please remember that all other news coming after the publicist announcement is just gossip or rumour .


Because everything else than this official announcement is none of our business and they asked to respect their privacy, I will close comments on these sad news.

‘Lone Ranger’ Budget Back Up to $250 Million

When Disney briefly shut down the Johnny Depp western The Lone Ranger in August amid concerns about a budget that had ballooned to $250 million, the principals — including Depp, director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer — agreed to cut action sequences and their own upfront fees to bring the cost down to about $215 million. Well, don’t look now, but Lone Ranger is riding headlong into budget trouble again.

Comic-Con 2012: Who’s in, who’s out

With Comic-Con a month away, Hollywood is firming up plans to haul its geek-friendly film fare to San Diego – though Paramount and 20th Century Fox have joined Relativity Media, DreamWorks and DreamWorks Animation in skipping the Hall H panels this year, with Universal still up in the air.
Disney and Marvel will return, however, after sitting out Comic-Con last year in favor of the Mouse House’s own D23 fanfest.

Disney is also sure to showcase toon “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” and possibly a presentation on “The Lone Ranger.”
