I wanted to share with you some of the latest links for information, the Facebook page dedicated to finding Jimmy, as well as the Missing Person poster if you’d like to share it.

Please continue to spread the word, and remember that he may not be in the Pittsburgh area anymore – he could be anywhere.

“Frank or Francis” May Bring Nic Cage, Jack Black, Steve Carell, and Kevin Kline to Pittsburgh

8 Nov

Kevin Kline, Jack Black, Steve Carell, and Nicolas Cage are reportedly set to star in a new Charlie Kaufman movie, “Frank or Francis,” a musical comedy to be filmed in Pittsburgh, PA.

Kaufman is the genius behind “Being John Malkovich,” “Adaptation,” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”

“Frank or Francis” follows very busy years in film production in Pittsburgh as of late. This summer, Pittsburgh hosted the Batman movie, “Dark Knight Rises,” and also presently filming in Pittsburgh is “One Shot,” starring Tom Cruise.

The “Frank or Francis” project seems to be all but confirmed, though an official announcement has not yet been made. According to the Pittsburgh Business Times, “New York-based production company Likely Story Inc. has been awarded a $4 million tax credit to shoot “Frank or Francis” in Allegheny County, according to public investment records with the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, which oversees the state’s film tax credit program.”

The movie is set to begin filming in January or February of 2012.

Pennsylvania Native Danny Seo Talks Upcycling on Anderson

26 Oct

As a fan of Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show, “Anderson,” I’m always intrigued by the diversity of topics covered on his show.

Recently, a show discussed the new concept of “upcycling” and featured guest and green lifestyle expert, the eco-friendly guru Danny Seo.

I was very interested in upcycling, and Googled Seo after the show only to find that he is a native of Pennsylvania. (Bucks County)

His website and books offer tips on “living green with great style.”

You can learn more about Danny, upcycling, and his (chic!) green initiatives by visiting http://www.dannyseo.com
