Thank You Santa Fe!

Being in the film business is sort of like being an insurance salesman, a circus monkey, or a CIA agent, in that you must be ready to pack a bag and move anywhere for months at a time, and assimilate as much as possible. Some destinations (such as Santa Fe) make this easier than others (such as Shreveport) but I always find the elements of a great lifystyle, even if it takes some digging. I always see it as a challenge, an anthropological experiment aimed at finding my home wherever I land. This means hitting the ground running, armed with nothing but Google, and an open mind.

For the last three months, while shooting my new film, Cowboys & Aliens, I have resided in an adorable adobe cottage steps away from the always hopping Plaza in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico. Within a few weeks I had become a local, the kind that says things like “You know you’re right, Betty, the weather does feel a little dryer than usual. We’ll have to hope for rain this week or my tomatoes will never ripen!”

It doesn’t take long to reach this level of familiarity in a place as cozy and welcoming as Santa Fe. This might be due to the fact that everyone here seems to have come from somewhere else, desperate for a reprieve from the big city and eager to discover their inner cowgirl/gallery owner/wheel potter/yoga master/chocolatier.

I usually begin the process of assimilation with my most important priority: coffee.

I take my coffee very seriously. I like the espresso strong enough to kick my brain awake with a steel toed boot, and the ambiance conducive to hours of uninterrupted reading. To my supreme delight, I discovered Downtown Subscription, a place that not only meets these two requirements, but goes above and beyond, offering me a packed newsstand of reading material, quiet indoor and outdoor seating, and a perfect soy macchiato (an almost impossible feat due to soy milk’s trouble frothing like it’s cow juice alternative.) The coffee chemists behind the counter are friendly enough, but sternly focused, which I find comforting, as I like to think they are taking my beverage request as seriously as I am.

I may be naive, but it does seem to be a local mainstay, and not packed with the hundreds of tourists (I don’t count. I’m conducting an experiment here!) found in most places in Santa Fe. I am convinced I can tell the difference by judging them on their shoes and level of skin damage. Birkenstocks and an unusually high melanoma level? It’s a good bet you settled here years ago and can therefore be categorized as a local! Congratulations. I will now judge all establishments based on your presence or lack thereof.


The Tea House, on the famous art gallery strip of Santa Fe, Canyon Road, is another place I’d like to unplug and relocate to my neighborhood in LA. But of course this gorgeous and tranquil spot belongs here, where patrons allow themselves more than 10 minutes for a meal, without balking at the polite request to buss your own table in exchange for your hassle free, peaceful, lazy afternoon on their warm cushions (not to mention their free wifi.) I was sent here by a blogger who recommended their homemade veggie burger, and was delighted to find much more than that on the menu to entice me, and bring me back on days off to sample the extensive tea list, and soak up the sun in their garden.

I have really enjoyed my experience in Santa Fe, and there is so much more I could write about (maybe I will) but for now, consider this a love letter to the above mentioned ingredients to my happy summer in my latest home away from home.

She writes beautifully. Maybe she should consider writing a travel book about all locations she must be visiting making movies. I wonder if Daniel is able to enjoy the local eateries like she does. Probably not, the poor guy. He would be mobbed. We would have seen pictures of him if he was out more.

I don't think so. There are just some places in the world (fortunately) which are not swamped by paps. There have been several sightings at eateries when he was in Toronto and no pictures surfaced.
Most of the pics which surface are taken by paps, so avoiding them will do :lol:

I think, the chance of being mobbed in a crowd is bigger then in the quiet atmosphere of a restaurant, where people "should" know, how to behave around celebs.

Did we see any Olivia pics from Santa Fe? Linda? You know?

Daniel Craig, one of England's biggest global stars and famed for his portrayal of the iconic James Bond character, has become the two millionth supporter of the England 2018 World Cup Bid.

The 'Back the Bid' campaign, which was launched by David Beckham and Gary Lineker at Wembley in May 2009, has seen a host of famous faces lend their support in addition to football fans from around the world.

The McLaren duo Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton were two of the first celebrities to register their support and were quickly followed by the likes of James Cordon, Sting, Robbie Williams, Ant and Dec, Noel Gallagher, Simon Cowell, Dame Kelly Holmes, England's Ashes winning cricketers and World Heavyweight Champion David Haye. Football fans from over 100 countries have also registered their support over the past 15 months.

England 2018's most unlikely Bid backer was unveiled last week as Weymouth born Paul the Octopus, the international star of the South Africa 2010 World Cup, became an official ambassador.

The passing of the two million has been reached almost 100 days ahead of schedule and the mile stone represents a significant landmark for the Bid with the number being reached thanks to support from the entire football family in England, including the Premier League and The FA and grass roots leagues around the country.

In addition to the fantastic efforts of all 12 prospective Host Cities, the Back the Bid campaign has been fully supported all of England 2018's official partners: British Airways, BT, Morrison's, Price Waterhouse Coopers and Umbro.

Morrison's has secured more than one and a half million signatures thanks to a campaign led by former England captain Alan Shearer while BT has created a virtual England 2018 flag with photos and signatures of thousands of fans.

British Airways has also been collecting the names of fans backing the Bid which will be printed onto the plane that flies the delegation to FIFA headquarters for December's decision. Umbro has been collecting video clips throughout the campaign from fans and numerous celebrities and PWC has collected thousands of signatures at its London headquarters.


paul the octopus backing england too
