Miami Dolphins #1 (at Joe Robbie Stadium)
Football is back, finally (at Joe Robbie Stadium)
I did locations for this movie last year, so go see it this weekend.
We had a crew screening for it last week and it was funnier than I thought it was going to be. I didn’t realize how funny it was due to the chaos of working on a $27 million dollar Michael Bay movie. 74 locations in 40 days. That’s A LOT of work.
This is really interesting, makes me appreciate that kiwi I had as a night time snack tonight.
Feb. 18, 1885: Huckleberry Finn is Published
On this day in 1885, Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was published in the United States. The book follows Huck and Jim, a runaway slave, as they travel on a raft down the Mississippi River.
Due to the book’s crude language and depiction of slavery and life in the South, Huckleberry Finn was banned in some places in the U.S. Today, literary critics recognize it as a literary masterpiece, but the book remains controversial in schools.
Keep learning about Twain’s work and other literary classics with American Masters’ “The American Novel” timeline.
