M: ya, after the game we all poured into our cars and drove home to shoot off some fire works we didn’t want to walk the extra half-block to go into the big open field, so we decided that it would be fine to shoot them off in the neutral ground right under the power… Continue reading you guys with the illegal fireworks… who dat!
My old landlord Louis Maistros directed me to this video on Mr. Okra – a man I dare say is a New Orleans institution. Well, maybe not New Orleans, but definitely a Quarter / Marigny / Bywater / 9th Ward institution. He’s like the ice cream man, but nowhere near as annoying or tooth-rotting.

I’m not going to get into a… Continue reading 1,460 Days and Counting
*phew* Red Dress week is over! It’s been a long week, and as much fun as it’s been, I’m glad it’s over. For me, it started on Thursday. The VooDoo hosted a Red Dress Run, hared/led by myself and Fill Me Up (fellow VooDooer) through the Marigny. It was really more of a crawl, but… Continue reading Slurvivor Week
After my previous post about Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, my friend Matt directed me to the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation: Holy Simultaneously Grim and Necro, Batman. That aside, a certain shot caught my eye: That’s actual Katrina footage, dirtied up a bit to fit the über-post-apocalyptic setting of The Road. You can… Continue reading On The Road, Again
