Musician Sean Yseult hasn’t exactly been sitting around idle since she hung up her bass with White Zombie. Splitting her time between homes in New Orleans and Manhattan, Yseult not only stays involved in music but she is also a successful fashion designer and multi-media artist with a wide ranging expertise in photography. Three of Yseult’s photographic projects are on display now in a retrospective hosted by Sacred Gallery. Continue reading Sean Yseult Retrospective at Sacred Gallery
The photoshopped image above was sent to me by my friend, Ronne, a native of New Orleans who now lives in the southwest. Ronne didn’t have any information on the origin of the image nor did she have any idea what it might be associated with, but she knows I love the pink, so she sent it over. I can’t find anything on the Internet using the obvious search terms (Pink New Orleans Image October) but I think it’s a nice photo and I figured I had better get it on the blog while we are still in the month of October. If you have any clues as to what this picture is about, please leave them in the comments!

I just got back late last night from 3 days in New Orleans followed by a 7 Day/Night Caribbean Cruise on the lovely Carnival Triumph – the greatest ship at sea! I highly recommended a Carnival Cruise (or any cruise, but Carnival is awesome) for any vacation you might consider! I’m still getting used to not feeling the motion of the ocean! And, surprisingly, NYC feels not so humid after some of the ports I’ve been in over the past 10 days! Cruisin’!
On This Date, April 23rd in 1991: Johnny Thunders, guitarist for the New York Dolls died in New Orleans under mysterious circumstances, which have been rumored to be the result of foul play and drug related causes. He was 38 years old. I knew Johnny’s backup singer, Allison Gordy, for years and she always claimed that he was murdered, so I guess there’s some foundation to those rumors after all. Maybe some day the truth will come out. RIP, Johnny.
Just last night, Vince Danger and I were taking about whether we’ll ever be able to hear that Led Zeppelin song again without becoming at least somewhat emotionally overwhelmed.
I tend to avoid getting political on this page, but the fact that New Orleans and other parts of the South have been completely devastated nuclear-war-style by Hurricane Katrina simply cannot be ignored. While I was grateful and relieved to hear that my friends in Supagroup and their loved ones had successfully evacuated New Orleans prior to the storm hitting hard, I’ve been obsessively watching the coverage on CNN until I just can’t cry anymore.
