The Good Girls Revolt by Michael Durr


While walking the streets of New York, my wife and I randomly came upon the set of The Good Girls Revolt. It wasn't long after our arrival that Jim Belushi walked out of the doors of Cipriani on Broadway. We watched the crew shoot the scene several times. Moments later we were shocked to see Anna Camp walk out of the door. The crew and actors were super nice and very accommodating to the insane amount of on-lookers.  Here is what we learned about the show that was being filmed:

Tent Party – GoBlower by Michael Durr

This year at "Tent Party Earth WIND Fire" we decided to have a little fun with a leaf blower and a GoPro, aka the GoBlower. I think the video and photos speak for themselves. Enjoy. 

Nik Wallenda by Michael Durr

It's a bird it's a plane no it's Nik Wallenda. In the time I have lived in the city I have seen some awesome stuff. I have seen the Sears tower get hit by lightning (several times), I have seen countless fire in the sky sunrises and sunsets, I have seen cars blown up for Hollywood movies, attack helicopters run training missions, corners and blocks turned into giant movie sets, I have seen Michael Bay direct Mark Wahlberg, but I never thought I would see a man walk across the Chicago river 600 feet in the air on a wire.

Nik Wallenda stepped out onto a wire from Marina City Tower to the Leo Burnett building at a record setting 19 degree incline. It's something you would expect to see in a Mission Impossible movie. Although if it was I am sure Tom Cruise would have been running across without that cumbersome poll. That's the beauty of Hollywood magic, but this was real life.

Skyscraper Live was broadcast live around the world. Myself and tens of thousands of people watched in person on the ground while others crowded onto Marina City balconies and in downtown office buildings for watch parties.

In his interviews following the stunt, Nik really seems like a great guy. A family man carrying on the legacy of this unique skill. Congrats Nik! Chicago was happy to have you.
