Avatar 🗒 Swag For Life Member 3:37am fred:

I saw a dance show this week that used video of that sea fire. That was fast, but that part of the show was already critical of capitalism, so I guess it made sense
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am Brian in New Orleans:

yeah...just when that Sonic Youth was about to kick in ....it was GONE....lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39am Brian in New Orleans:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am Brian D:

Gave it some thought, Paulo...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51am Brian in New Orleans:

Louisiana loses the area of an NFL football field a day?...a month?... along our coastline to to the rerouting of the Mississippi river and stronger Hurricanes gaining power over the warming gulf of Mexico
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55am Brian in New Orleans:
