Muses is quickly becoming my favorite parade. Thoughtfully crafted floats and costumes... acidic satire... civic generosity... women... what more can you ask?

Lovely, Pearlgirl and I had a grand time cheering them on. And that multicolored high-heel glitter shoe was the bees knees, whadn'it?

Where we stood, the crowds were big, loud and having fun. (Many were picking up after themselves, too.) Muses made me proud that New Orleans is celebrating Carnival this year.

Why not join the fun?

"Something's coming... Something... wonderful!" 

1. Right click and open this link in a new window in order to experience the ultimate soundtrack.

2. Then, before the beat kicks in, open Blake's Knightmarish loop and place it in the center of your browser.

3. Enjoy!! (But not for more than one hour at a time.)

New Orleans apologizes to Vice President for getting hit by hurricane 

(I thought I'd post a headline in case the Creole Tomato needed some inspiration. Feel free to write a sentence from this fake news story in the comments. Cooperative efforts will earn double bonus points.)

Now, if you please 

I'm hella-pissed that I missed this exchange.

Quintron also appeared on the Jenny Jones show in '99. I would very much like to see that re-run.... Hopefully we'll all be dancing around his organ one day soon.
