Hollywood, Nashville and New York in Key West yesterday.
Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg and Kenny Chesney.
Regarding McConaughey and Dogg, a movie being filmed in Key West. Actually, Miami and Key West. Four weeks in Miami, two in Key West.
Chesney just visiting.
The movie is The Beach Bum. McConaughey plays a rebellious stoner named Moondog. A loving rogue who lives life large. By his own rules.
A critic reported McConaughey was born to play the role.
Filming daytime yesterday at the Key West Golf Course and the Hemingway House. Last night, on Duval.
I got all this juicy information last night at the Chart Room.
Where else? All roads meet at the Chart Room.
It all started with Jean Thornton. She came in and mentioned the filming. Was on her way to Duval Street hoping to catch the evening filming. Not certain where it was. She was going to walk Duval.
Upon hearing Jean, John and Kevin piped up. They knew about McConaughey, the filming, etc. As did some others at the bar. I got an education.
Jimmy Buffett is in the movie, also. A portion of the story involves the Beach Bum getting on the stage at a Buffett concert and participating illicitly. My research suggests the Buffett portion was filmed in Miami November 29.
Word is McConaughey is staying in a private home. The balance of the cast and film makers at the Ocean Key House under assumed names.
Kenny Chesney has nothing to do with the movie. Not sure why he is in town. Perhaps hanging out. Key West one of his favorite places.
He reportedly was at Schooner Wharf in the afternoon. He also was on a boat with several lovelies. One of those at the bar had a pic on his cell phone showing Chesney and the ladies out on the water. One of the young ladies his daughter.
Anna came in to straighten out the house at 7 this morning. I told her about McConaughey and Chesney being in Key West. She knew all about McConaughey being here.
Anna’s husband is the Chef at Cafe Sole. McConaughey had dinner at Cafe Sole monday night.
NORMAL staying at the Pier House. The National Organization For The Reform of Marijuana Laws. The organizations annual on week convention.
NORMAL’s convention has been held at the Pier House for many years. Began back when pot smoking was not legal anywhere. The organization and legal pot smoking have come a long way.
Today, December 7. The day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. A day President Roosevelt described as one “that will live infamy.”
We live in dangerous times. May we not suffer a Pearl Harbor again.
I have to hustle. A doctor’s appointment at 10. My life…..doctoring.
Enjoy your day!
