Gentilly Girl- a part of the 99%

March 19, 2010

“Hate the music. Hate the food. Hate the city. What the fuck are you doin’ down here?”

Maitri has a Blog up concerning the new HBO series “Treme”. I am definitely going to watch it. You should too because it tells much of the truth about what happen to New Orleans post-Flood.

John Goodman is a great representation of our Late Great Ashley Morris, a Blogger for the city back then. I think he will pull this one off.

  1. Yes, I’m pretty hopeful about Goodman too. But I have to keep remembering that the character is only partially based on Ashley Morris.

  3. Darlin’, there will never be another Ashley Morris. Not a day goes by when I don’t think of him. He was , and is a force.

    The hip? The medicos are flipping out over it. Been off the walker for many weeks, did a mile walk last Thursday and 2 miles Friday after getting my cane (in case I get tired). May bring the Big Pink Bomber out of mothballs tomorrow in order to terrorize the Quarter. All I can hear is Freddy Mercury doing “Don’t Stop Me Now”.
