A Yankee In New Orleans, Part I

My latest column is now up on the Kotori Magazine Web site. Go read it and post comments on it.

The column documents my trip to New Orleans in November. I had initially intended to write only one column about it, but there were too many things I thought I needed to include and so I will break up the story of my Louisiana adventures into two ore more installments.

Part I includes my travel to the city and my first few days there. One highlight was my tour of Lafayette Cemetery, which is located in the Garden District. I was staying with my good friend Voodoo Rue, who luckily lives in one of the nicer parts of the city.

One item I forgot to mention in my column was that for most of my stay in New Orleans, movie trailers were lined up along the street around much of the cemetery. I asked a security guard what was being filmed and was told that it was a made-for-TV film entitled Midnight Bayou. Jerry O’Connell and Faye Dunaway are rumored to be in the film. It is a period piece, and the actors I saw smoking cigarettes outside of their tiny trailers were in period costume from the late 1800s or early 1900s.

I have just found your blog, and I can tell I will enjoy reading through it. I located it through your profile, because of the Confederacy of Dunces link. Then to see Repo Man, Big Lebowski, On the Road, Fear and Loathing . . . well, let's just say I'm suffering from a little bit of synchronicity overload. I'm a native New Yorker, but have lived in the South since 1977. And I work in the publishing industry. As I say, I'm going to enjoy hunting around your site, and I'd be honored if you were to check out mine, which focuses mostly on my work as an editor.
