  4. Everything you wanted to know about Ferris Bruller's Day Off •Any news on a sequel? No, rumours thus far about a Ferris Bueller's Day Off sequel tho I have heard that Broderick would be ready and willing. But as yet no real sequel rumours, well not to the extent of Pretty in Pink sequel rumours as listed at Coming Attractions. There was a made for TV movie, using the TV series actors, entitled Ferris Goes to College, and Charlie Schlatter played Ferris. Sortta like the School's Out film for Degrassi, or the Saved By The Bell Goes to Hawaii TV movie. . •What's this I hear about Anthony Michael Hall and the film? John Hughes originally wrote the script for Anthony Michael Hall to play Cameron. However after playing Farmer Ted the Geek in Sixteen Candles, Brian Johnson the nerd in The Breakfast Club and Gary Wallace, another geek in Weird Science, Anthony Michael Hall turned down the part of Cameron for fear of being typecast. Enter Alan Ruck and the rest is history. Here is what Anthony Michael Hall said about it in an Entertainment Asylum AOL Chat. "John actually had written Ferris Bueller for me. We both determined that I should move on to other things. I needed a break. I wanted to try some new things. So I did Out of Bounds. I can only think back and thank John. He changed my life forever." •What is the name of the painting Cameron stares at at the Art Institute? It is "Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte" and was by Georges Seurat you can find more information about from the Art Institute of Chicago's web site by clicking here. Or if you are interested in purchasing an art print of it see the question Where can I get an art print of that picture Cameron was looking at in the art institute? •What's this I hear about Jennifer Grey and Matthew Broderick? During the filming of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and until sometime in 1987, Matthew Broderick and Jennifer Grey were dating. Kinda funny know when you think about how Ferris dances to "I Dream Of Jeanie" cos he really did. •Who is older Ferris or Jeanie? I think it's generally accepted knowledge that Jeanie is a younger sister. Tho it is never stated in the film to my knowledge, but this fact puzzles me, as you would think the parents of a family would get the older child a car before his younger sister. My other theory is that are twins, with Jeanie being slightly older however Jeanie doesn't appear to be in any of Ferris' classes which sort of rules that out. Jeanie definitely can't be older however, cos Ferris is in his last year of school and Jeanie still also attends high school. •Did the film win any awards? To my shock, no the film was not even nominated for any Academy Awards, but Matthew Broderick did receive a 1987 Golden Globe Nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical. •So if Matthew Broderick didn't win who won the 1987 Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture? Paul Hogan for Crocodile Dundee •How much did the film gross? The film made $28.6 million US in rentals and a gross of $70.136 million US. •When exactly was it released? In the USA Ferris Bueller's Day Off was released on Wednesday 11th June 1986. •Is this a brat pack film? No, even tho it was made by John Hughes who's closely associated with the Brat Pack, this film is essentially not a Brat Pack film, and none of the cast members are Brat Pack members •Was that a real 1961 Ferrari 250GT California? No, as Cameron stated in the film less than 100 of those cars were made with no two being the same. They are valued at over $3 million US and for more information on the car check out it's cast profile. The car used in the film was actually a modified MGB. And, according to Brad Williams (a visitor to this site), the company that modified for the MGB for this film and others, was actually sued by Ferrari for the use of it's logos, and with all the damages that were demanded to be paid by Federal courts, it actually went out of business soon after. •How old were the cast members when the film was made? Matthew Broderick was 23, Alan Ruckwas 29, Jennifer Grey was 25, Mia Sara was just 17, Charlie Sheen was 20 and Kristy Swanson was all but 16 years old. •What was that parade for? German American Appreciation Day •Was that Matthew Broderick singing at the parade? No, that was Wayne Newton singing Danke Schoen and of course the Beatles singing Twist and Shout. Matthew can in fact sing tho, as he showed in the 1995 Broadway production of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying? •What's with the personalised license plates? Everyone knows Cameron's father's Ferrari personalised license plate of NRVOUS standing for of course nervous. But additionally all members Bueller family's car's license plates were also personalised and referred to other John Hughes films. Tom Bueller's license plate reads MMOM referring to Mr Mom, Katie Bueller's reads VCTN referring to National Lampoon's Vacation and Jeanie's license reads TBC which of course refers to The Breakfast Club. Gary Eckhardt recently informed me that Ed Rooney's plates read 4FBDO, standing for, For Ferris Bueller's Day Off. •Where were the filming locations? -The outside school scenes were shot at Glenbrook North High School, 2300 Shermer Road, Northbrook, IL 60062. Whilst the interior of Shermer High School is shot in the former Maine North High School (same as The Breakfast Club) -The Pizza parlor scene was shot in Brentwood, California, USA -The exterior shots of the Bueller home were shot at Long Beach, California, USA in the 4000 block of Country Club Drive. -The Blue "Save Ferris" Watertower, is off of Cedar Road next to the Northbrook Public Library, Northbrook, IL -The art exhibition they visit is the Art Institute of Chicago, 111 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60603. Ph (312) 443-3600. Website http://www.artic.edu/aic/ -After Cameron freaks out in the car they take him to Glencoe Beach, at the end of Park Street on Lake Michigan in Glencoe, IL -The Cubs game is of course at Wrigley Field -The tower they look down on Chicago from is of course the Sears Tower -The stock exchange they visit is The Chicago Board of Trade -The German American Appreciation Parade occurs down Dearborn Street -Cameron's house and the Ferrari garage (also known as the Ben Rose Auto Museum) are located at 370 Beech Street in Highland Park, IL (The garage is off the street a bit, and the entrance to it is not clear because it is not attached to the actual house. The driveway to the garage seems to be off of a street just west of the house, but it is private property). -The orange sculpture Cameron and Sloan walk by is located near the corner of Dearborn and Adams in Chicago, IL •Where did they stuff up in the film According to the IMDB and other sources, here are the film's goofs -The police officer that escorts Sloane and Cameron away from the float that Ferris is on loses his jacket in an overhead shot. -At the baseball game, the ball is hit into right field, but caught by Ferris in the left field stands. -Mr Rooney's suit loses an arm after he rings the Buellers' doorbell. -The rear view mirror disappears when Jeanie is speeding home. -Jeanie doesn't undo her seatbelt before she jumps out of the station wagon. And additionally in one shot of the car parked- the seatbelt is slammed in the door of the car and hanging out but when they cut back to the car seconds later- the seatbelt is gone. -Ferris is confronted by Mr Rooney after 6pm, yet Rooney then gets on a bus full of school children carrying books. (NOTE: John Thompson who grew up in Glenview, Illinois and attended Glenbrook South High School from 84-88 informed me that both Glenbrook South and North had/have what we call late buses for students taking place in afternoon and evening activities. They were scheduled at 4:30, 5:30, 6:30, and 7:30pm. The routes were longer and required a bit more walking but this could easily be what Rooney hopped on!) -At the end when Ferris throws the baseball at the stereo, he throws it left-handed (Matthew Broderick is left-handed), but the mitt the ball lands in is a right-hander's mitt. -Near the beginning of the movie (after Ferris has left) there is a brief scene around the empty house. While the camera is in the kitchen you can see a reflection of one of the set guys moving in the fridge handle. -Cameron's shirt with the The American Medical Association's symbol changes half way through the movie. You can see how they try to cover it up by turning it inside out, but it still shows. -When the Ferrari goes through the window and the three of them are standing there, you can see the camera tape on the floor where they are supposed to stand. Also the broken glass on the window changes a bit over the course of that scene. -When driving home form the city there is obviously a fake backdrop to simulate a moving car. The car can be seen to change lanes but Ferris never actually turns the wheel of the car. -If you look closely every time a clock is shown you can tell they do not match up. The times match up at the beginning but then proceed to jump back and forth throughout the movie -The Speedometer only goes up by 10 miles between the time Cameron freaks out and when they're back in the garage, but they stop at a famous Chicago lighthouse when Cameron freaks out that actually is 1/2 hour outside the city •Isn't there a timeline problem with this film? The Ferris Bueller Timeline Problem is a theory by J.L. Moss and others. I personally do not agree with this synopsis and upon further deeper analysis, it can be shown that Ferris, Cam and Sloane could in fact fit everything into the specified time period. The one major point that was out of synch was Ed Rooney getting on the school bus at 6pm, but this was even this was recently explained by John Thompson who grew up in Glenview, Illinois and attended Glenbrook South High School from 84-88. He informed me that both Glenbrook South and North had/have what we call late buses for students taking place in afternoon and evening activities. They were scheduled at 4:30, 5:30, 6:30, and 7:30pm. The routes were longer and required a bit more walking but this could easily be what Rooney hopped on!

  15. posted before but still a Jem. taken from www.scribblemagazine.com <span style='color:darkred'>Graffiti seems to be a touchy subject these days when it comes to the politics of it. what does graffiti mean? is it still graffiti if it is done legally or is it only true graffiti if it is done illegally? does a graffiti artist partake in both actions or does he stand strong on strictly illegal graffiti? will the ever-growing popularity of legal graffiti bring the demise of the artform? does it not reach a point where it is no longer graffiti but simply another form of art? should a writer be allowed to say that they are only in it for the legal walls? does this statement in itself not show contradiction? paradox? irony? can a writer become acertain age when it is legit to say that one can not afford to get in trouble, due to family, jobs, etc.-where exactly is the line drawn? is it possible to become one with graffiti, to be a walking, bombing replica of what graffiti means . . . what exactly would it take and how would you know if it were so? the above photos are part of one writer's six month tour that may have accomplished this deed. For these six months, FIVE. has traveled from the midwest to the west coast back over to the east coast, leaving behind an abundance of markings in and on many parts of our feeble society. these days he always seems to be on the move, even when he is back in his hometown. occasionally we get to meet up totalk about what he has been up to over some coffee; well, at least he drinks it i can't even stand the smell of it. last time we met he gave me 9 disposable kodak cameras, which documents the last six months of his life. after developing them I was overwhelmed from how much he actually sees on a daily basis. me, i sit in my office staring at a computer screen asking myself one simple question, "should my experiences rise above that of the norm and follow a life such as five." a hard question to answer . . . in one sense, FIVE lives and breathes graffiti, and that in itself has to be the one of the greatest feelings that life could offer. living on the road, on top of rooftops, occasionally renting a random apartment to settle for a few months, just long enough to collect himself until he can't stand to sit still and is pushed on by a greater force that lies within himself. writing on everything and anything that he sees fit on a daily basis. back to my question: do I rise above, or do Ienjoy the stability of having a home to go to, or a job that in reality holds me down to a routine that often becomes tedious and only occasionally catching atag, which in comparison to FIVE's life work seems to be less than adequate. have i myself slowed down because of my own beliefs? my one concern that seems to be the determining factor is that I truly believe that graffiti is simply meant to be done illegally. So then, how can I myself continue to paint with this belief in the back of my mind, while others such as FIVE are out there experiencing life at it's fullest and most fresh? Or, and I would love to convince myself of this, does it take both of us to make this equation work? he puts in his work on the streets, whereas I secretly spread the disease by being a businessman, providing this magazine that just might inspire as many people to write graffitin as any tag or piece done by somebody like FIVE out on the streets. When a passion exists, such as the one writers have, it comes loaded with risk and satisfaction... is graffiti a one way road and getting up the ultimate goal? Or are there different steps that can be taken that essentially reach the same goal? no matter what the answer is, I give thanks to writers such as FIVE from the bottom of my heart for the inspiration given freely to millions of onlookers, and for reminding us on a daily basis that there is much more out there than our beloved AMERICAN DREAM. do not be fooled . . . graffiti is much more than a simple tag or piece, one must have a true understanding and love for the acts that graffitirenders upon us, no matter how you answer the question.</span>

  23. http://www.cnn.com/2002/TECH/ptech/01/02/a...rity/index.html ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------ RESTON, Virginia (CNN) -- AOL Time Warner's popular AOL Instant Messenger has a security flaw that could enable a hacker to invade a user's computer and wreak havoc on the system, the company and a security group said Wednesday. AOL spokesman Andrew Weinstein said there have been no indications that hackers have exploited the flaw, which should be fixed by Thursday or Friday. AOL Time Warner is the parent company of CNN.com "This is more of a theoretical issue because we don't believe this has actually occurred," Weinstein said. "We have developed a resolution, and it should be deployed in a day or two." He described the fix as a "server-side resolution" that AOL would repair itself, so "users won't have to do anything" to fix the problem. The problem has to do with a new feature that allows users to play online games with each other. The security flaw appears only in its most recent Windows version of AIM, 4.7, Weinstein said. The group that discovered the flaw says it dates back to at least the 4.3 version. The group, w00w00, is a nonprofit security organization that has members in nine countries, including Russia, the United States and Australia. Non-Windows versions are not affected by the problem. Until AOL fixes the problem, w00w00 recommends users restrict incoming messages to friends on their "Buddy List." A user can do this by going to "Your Preferences." In the "Privacy" section, click "Allow Only Users on My Buddy List" under "Who Can Contact Me," the security group said. Not taking such an action would leave the program vulnerable to a worm or virus similar to Melissa, ILOVEYOU and Code Red, which have caused problems in computers worldwide. The flaw is "relatively simple to exploit." "The implications of this vulnerability are huge and leave the door wide open for a worm," w00w00 said in a statement on its Web site. "This vulnerability will allow remote penetration of the victim's system without any indication as to who performed the attack. There is no opportunity to refuse the request." AIM has more than 100 million users on its various versions.
  24. Even though Method Man and Redman are riding on the coat-tails of other prank shows, it is really fucking funny. Matt Besser (UCB) is the head writer, and also is in the skits. I don't know when it will be on again....but it was pretty awesome.
