New Orleans

Anthony

I can’t remember the precise moment I started watching Parts Unknown, but I do know, prior to that, I’d never heard of Anthony Bourdain and despised culinary shows. That all changed after experiencing him on CNN for the first time a few years back. I was hooked.

Anthony Bourdain had a way of making his viewers feel apart of his travels, conversations, and experiences. He was always engaging with his surroundings, eating exotic shit, being fearless, and never shying away from controversial issues effecting the locals wherever he traveled. Bourdain never exploited those people, disrespected them or made them feel small. He always seems curious about their plight, what they were going through, and why it was happening.

His suicide hit me hard this morning. I can’t say it hit me harder than I thought it would because I didn’t anticipate it or anything like that. I, like many others around the world, just didn’t see it coming. I wasn’t prepared. I wasn’t ready. I doubt that anyone was. I just pray his loved ones get through this.

RIP Anthony Bourdain.

A rooftop wedding with the New Orleans sunset as the back drop? Count me in!!
  My coworker and good friend Donna married the love of her life August 1st at the world renowned Jackson Brewery in the New Orleans French Quarter. What a wonderful night filled with love and fun. It was a true honor to have been included in the festivities and absolutely wonderful getting to see John and Donna celebrate their love for one another. I pray they have many more years of happiness! Love y’all!!!!

Curren$y – Life Under The Scope

Soooo…I LOVE this guy! Curren$y is utterly refreshing to me. His subject matter, weed metaphors and production collabs drives those who don’t know to ask, “THIS nigga from New Orleans??” I reply, “yes!” with a smile everytime. Curren$y is mos def in his own galaxy and the best part is…he’s more than willing to show you around. Here’s my new favorite, “Life Under the Scope” and the download is to your right in the music box. Enjoy and comment.
