across the universe = down the block

do you know julie taymor?

she is shooting a movie around the corner from my apt. it's a period musical, and all of the stores down the block have gotten movie makeovers - they're supposed to be places you would find in greenwich village in the 60s.

very colorful!

we got a warning that there will be some audio "playback" when they shoot on tuesday... so i expect to be innundated with beatles songs.

They're filiming right now. Still no sight of Bono. Lots of Evan Rachel Wood dressed as a hippie, though.

My building is painted all psychedelic colors. I kinda hope they keep it this way.

I spend a good time today watching the set. Enough to make me writing an article about the neighbourhood reactions, if some of you want to write me an email with a one sentence quote about how do you feel being taken as hostage by a movie set, please, don't hesitate!
