Flashback Friday: Starring Wash E. Words

Written by washwords on April 17, 2009 – 5:32 pm

UPDATE: the movie’s outtttt. once they show crabcakes at the fish market look for meeeeee. i’m that blur of a hat zooming past, behind Russell Crowe. Aren’t I brilliant? Lotsa fun for all dc’ers. Yah, so they get a few things “wrong” but lots right, lots of shout outs: the metro, crystal city, kennedy center, a “hospital” across the street from spezie. heh. Enjoy this flashback history of Wash’s movie career

******************

So everyone’s abuzz about the Oscars. Me, well i finally saw ONE nominee Frost/Nixon yesterday. And that’s where it happened:  a trailer for “my” movie, State of Play.

State of Play, for those new to the blog, or who somehow missed their E! update of how WW is involved in this major motion picture, event, is a new film starring Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck, based on a BBC miniseries of the same name.

And it was filmed IN DC, and, well more specifically, at WASHWORDS PAD (well okay, at a “nearby building” so near that they asked me, WW, to place lights in my window to backlight the scene! and paid me for it! so near that if a friend and I were to jump up and down behind the fake sheers they taped up to look like curtains in my living room, in our jammies, you might, just might catch a glimpse of us.)

And then, not only that, but they asked me, Washwords, to play the vital role of “Fish Market Patron” in a critical scene. I don’t want to be a spoiler or give away anything, but let’s just say … watch closely should you happen to spy a Fish Market Patron in a brown coat and adorable baseball hat-style knit cap, looking verrry cute. I mean I didn’t want to steal Russell’s moment or anything… but… talent can’t always be held back, y’know?

So look closely at this trailer below.

See the scene where Ben Affleck is being a Congressman at the CAPITOL? yah, that’s the Masonic Temple on 16th Street. See that sheer curtain over Ben’s head while Russell is yelling at him? I’m pretty sure WW might be right behind there. And see second 1:31 and then again at 1:34? It’s… the fish market!!!

Needless to say the producers didn’t want to let me be seen in a trailer but look closely, cause, I’m just about to or have just slammed right into Russell (okay, a few feet behind him) and in a later moment of cinematic glory, I’m going to … purchase some fish!!!! Really! and “fake make change with the fish monger!”

I KNOW! yah, it’s a gift. And hey, at least it seems not the entire fish market scene is cut. I have hopes.

25 things about me (and you)

Written by washwords on January 27, 2009 – 3:47 pm

So the latest Facebook chain mail goes something like this : Here’s 25 random things about me. If I tagged you, it means I want to know 25 things about you.

About two zillion of my closest friends fill one out.

Being a 12-year-old girl at heart (not even very thinly veiled most times) I’m one for playing along, but I decided to add a twist: why not take a thing or two from 25 of the friends who filled one out and tagged me, and see where that leads me? So I did. and it led to fun, which made me think: why not post it here even though some of you still don’t know my full identity… won’t that add just one more layer of intrigue. And really, won’t 25 random things about washwords really tell you all you need to know about me. For the privacy of my (mostly innocent) friends, first names only…

1) Emilywrites: My family all lives in CT now. Even though we all used to live in Syracuse, NY and my parents aren’t even married anymore. I think it is pretty remarkable that we live so close by.

I say: My sister and her family (most notably, baby bucket), my two grandmothers, my fiance and his mom and sister all live in metro DC area. I too think it’s pretty crazy. I also think it’s cool that Emily loves books on the Plague.

2) Amanda says: my own herb garden last summer was the first time I was able to keep a plant alive!

I say: I was once cast from the community garden I joined and loved. Something about not weeding. Harumph. I weeded just fine. (and grew beautiful tomatoes and tulips and mint and lettuce and…)

3) Suz says: I grew up in South Florida and had assumed that’s why I’m always cold. But then an Read more »
