As a Blues Brothers fan the last month has been beyond crazy, starting with Skokie, Il event with Jim and then Denver with Dan and Jim. It blows my mind that Elwood drove my car and carried my briefcase that was handcuffed to him like the old days.

^ You know, I was actually thinking of the idling sound at Joliet before Elwood cuts the engine (sounds just like it in your Denver video) ... but when Zee steps on the gas in your Skokie video, it absolutely sounds like a movie car there too!
I just noticed this great Live Nation video from August featuring Aykroyd and Belushi. It's partly a promotion for the weed:
Dan Aykroyd's late-model Mercury Grand Marquis, ex-U.S. State Department, makes an appearance (see the Seth Meyers thread also under Movie and Band News) ... a CPD Monaco replica and a Monaco Blumo with Texas plates can also be spotted in this video. Dan even talks about Zee's backstory (which gives me a glimmer of hope for a movie, although he doesn't mention it).

- According to OregonLive.com Jim's show "Growing Belushi" has been renewed for a 2nd season.
Discovery has officially green-lighted a second season of “Growing Belushi.” In a press release announcing the news, Belushi said that the show is “about the world of cannabis from seed to sale to patients and consumers.”

- Directly linking the movie with their new creation ... cannabis infused chocolate, in partnership with "Bhang x" .
When Jake and Elwood go to the diner to get Matt Guitar Murphy, the famous Aretha Franklin scene when she belts out “Think,” Jake orders a whole fried chicken and a Coke and Elwood orders dry white toast, so we collaborated on two candy bars that would taste like toast and fried chicken.

- It's in the ice-cream now ! The way this particular side of the business happened will be shown during Season 2 of Jim's show on Discovery. Looks like the ice-cream is being produced in Massachusetts.
Framingham-based Plant Jam is partnering with Belushi’s Farm to produce a "Blues Brothers" themed line of cannabis-infused ice cream.
