And in other news, Ypsi gets Fallon’d

Jimmy Fallon used my city in his Local News segment for Late Night or whatever it’s called these days.  Coulda been worse, though it certainly could have been more funny as well.  I get the feeling that’s the opinion of his show in general.

Of course, the FIRST time Ypsi got Fallon’d was last summer when he was here with Drew Barrymore for the roller derby movie she was filming around here.  Michigan’s new Hollywood tax breaks have created some interesting times in the past year or so.  Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti have been host to several large projects, the most recent being a Hillary Swank / Sam Rockwell / Minnie Driver film called Betty Ann Waters, which closed down my favorite bar for 2 or 3 days a little while back.  I’m sorry, but around here that sort of thing is just plain weird.
