OK, August 5th.
How nice! You’re throwing a BBQ on my anniversary! Luckily, my husband is working, so I’ll be there! HA!
I have a question.
Who’s doing the dishes??
I’ll be there, but I guess you already knew that.
Pshaw! you know who WOMAN! Now get that ass back in the kitchen, and tie that mattress on your back again!
Ooo! I’ll go, I’ll go! jumps up and down
I’ll be sure to eat manny, manny plates of greasy disgusting barbecue-covered wings so psycat can have dishes to clean! :^)
Uhh, it would be nice if people knew where you lived!
Is THAT clear enough for ya???
You know I love you Doob!
By the by.
Demo lives in Northern California.
In case you were sitting in an outstation in a snowcovered Tundra. I would hate to get the email from demo saying, “Well, first you are gonna have to hail down a fishing boat…”
This is gonna be a blast, I cannot wait.
I HOPE you get a couple of hundred emails asking for directions! :).
Of course I know you love me. Who wouldn’t?
This is what I meant:
Demo lives in Santa Rosa in Northern California.
Santa Rosa? Wasn’t that the town Hitchcock used in SHADOW OF A DOUBT?
How’s the ratio of psychotic widow-murderers to apple-cheeked virgins these days? If we attend the BBQ, what are the odds of being hurled from a moving train or locked in a carbon monoxide-filled garage by Uncle Charlie?
Since I am the guest of honor, I would say the odds are good. Very good indeed.
Was Shadow of a Doubt filmed in Santa Rosa? They did a remake of it a couple years ago, and it was filmed in my town (very, very close to Santa Rosa).
Anyway, I’ll be there, but I’ll be late. I’m going to the Giants game that day (thanks for the tix, VV!), so I figure I’ll make it at about 6 or so. If anyone thinks that the party will be dead by that time, please inform. If there is to be a sleepover, also please inform. I have already promised Patrick that I will do his hair, so this better work! See y’all then!
Since it was filmed in 1943, I’d be willing to bet that it was filmed entirely on soundstages and back lots in Hollywood. However, the story was set in Santa Rosa. Hitchcock thought it symbolized small-town America.
*Uncle Charlie: You think you know something, don’t you? You think you’re the clever little girl who knows something. There’s so much you don’t know…so much. What do you know, really? You’re just an ordinary little girl living in an ordinary little town. You wake up every morning of your life and you know perfectly well that there’s nothing in the world to trouble you. You go through your ordinary little day and at night you sleep your untroubled, ordinary little sleep filled with peaceful, stupid dreams…and I brought you nightmares.
Hitchcock always enjoyed Northen CA. He used Bodega Bay for the Birds. Also Howard the Duck was filmed up there.
I just asked for directions, then realized how stupid that is. I don’t have a car. Anyone going up there through SF, care to give me a ride? I promise I’ll entertain you with stories about the Hegelian Bauer split of 1835. Very entertaining stuff. Or maybe I’ll just buy you a beer.
Hitchcock also filmed parts of Vertigo at the Mission in nearby San Juan Bautista, and also at Carmel beach. Oh and his first American movie, “Rebecca” was flimed in Pt. Lobos near Carmel
Oh and i’m the one bringing the Guest of honor to the BBQ.
Yes, but are you driving through SF?
I have a nagging feeling that there are other Hitchcock films done in NorCal, anyone know which.
I also have a nagging feeling that I’m going to try and do an even 50 posts tomorrow also. That will make it 4 days in a row.
We are probably not going through SF. I dont feel comfortable enough driving through it (call me a "city with bad street planning and wretched traffic"phobe). We’ll probably go along the eastbay. Pat is my navigator (it’s my first time driving that far north).
…I didn’t know Hitchcock did Howard the Duck…
Wow, what a coincidence. I just watched Rebecca for the first time last night (thank god for netlix, I am finally watching all those old movies I’ve always meant to rent)!
I thought parts of it looked very Central Coast.
Hitchcock filmed parts of Shadow of a Doubt in Santa Rosa I believe.
Also, if memory serves me well, Hitchcock hated location shoots because they were harder to control. As a result he frequently stuck to sound stages and studio lots even when it wasn’t such a good idea.
