A December Monday afternoon in NOLA.
#gameday #NOLA (at Avenue Pub)
My view from the judge’s table at the national Air Sex championships. (at House of Blues New Orleans)
I am a judge for the Air Sex National Championships tonight. I hope this is in the first paragraph of my obituary. (at House of Blues New Orleans)
You can’t tell by his play on the court tonight, but I’m totally in Kevin Durant’s head. Totally. (at New Orleans Arena)
People are stupid.
My new favorite soft drink. (DISCLAIMER: I am not being compensated in any way to endorse Swamp Pop. I just really like the shit.)
A dog and his donut.
I’m not sure why the trumpet flowers in my courtyard bloom when they do (there seems to be no pattern, seasonal or otherwise, other than that the come out at night), but it’s always a pleasant surprise when they make an appearance.
The piano bar at Irene’s is looking quite festive tonight. (at Irene’s Cuisine)
Dat mac-n-cheese be bubblin’ as it comes out da oven!
Looks and feels like winter in NOLA this morning.
The Correct Ranking of Coen Brothers films -
I’ve seen a lot of lists out there ranking the Coen Brothers films and have been struck by the fact that they are all wrong. Start with the fact that their two Oscar winners - Fargo and No Country - are at or near the top of most lists - the list apparently being written just to be one more voice…
My own rankings…
1. The Big Lebowski
2. O’ Brother Where Art Thou
3. No Country for Old Men
4. Barton Fink
6. Intolerable Cruelty
7. Raising Arizona
8. Miller’s Crossing
9. True Grit
10. A Serious Man
11. The Hudsucker Proxy
12. Blood Simple
13. Burn After Reading
14. The Lady Killers
15. The Man Who Wasn’t There
The lobby of the Roosevelt Hotel is always so pretty during the holidays. (at The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel)
