  • Carl Showalter – Axed and the shoved into a wood chipped by his partner in crime Gaear Grimsrud

Prince is in Fargo?

No. No he is not. A quick look up on IMDB gave me an answer to this.

“A symbol similar to the Artist Formerly Known as Prince is in the credits as “victim in field”, but it is not him, it is J. Todd Anderson, the storyboard artist.”

Weird Bunny and Sock Puppet References

The Movie Harvey

The Rabbit in Donnie Darko aka Frank

Sock Puppets – It really doesn’t have anything to do with the rabbits it just popped into my mind. I guess it is fear related.

Accordian King Poseter

This is what I was talking about

Kenny Ortega

Erika didn’t have me completely sold on this guy cuz she only referenced him choreographing Dirty Dancing and Highschool Musical. Well I am sorry I didn’t know who this guy was because after looking up his filmography I was surprised the many things he had been apart of.

He is a choreographer and director and my people would be familiar with his work. He has choreographed some classic music videos such as Olivia Newton-John’s “Let’s Get Physical”, Madonna’s “Material Girl”, and Cher’s “If I Could Turn Back Time” as well as dance sequences in films such as Xanadu, Pretty in Pink, and To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar. But when it comes to the aforementioned High School Musical, he not only choreographed it but also directed it! That is much more impressive. IMDB

Also here are the music videos because the songs are now in my head.

Erika’s Classic Cars

Navy Blue 1930 ford Pickup

1973 Stingray Corvette

Save Ferris

Georges Seurat’s “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte”

The painting is even bigger than I thought. I said it was 3ftx5ft it is way bigger than that. It actually is 81.7 in × 121.25 in which is over 6ft x 10ft, more than double making it even more daunting seeming.
