Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm

winston: Zulu's on Tuesday, right before Rex. I got a Napoleon costume to see if it'll help me finally get a damned coconut. If I don't, I'm selling the entire Louisiana territory to ze Americans.

Hubig: That was Muses. Last night was Babylon, Chaos, and Muses. Just got back from Hermes, didn't have the legs to stay for Krewe d'Etat and Morpheus. Gotta save up my energy for Endymion tomorrow, it's gonna be enormous.

mariano, I've forgotten all parading krewes (outside of the bigshots). I was in a marching club in the Krewe of Tucks. The after parade party was in the Marriott, so we watched Endymion from the second floor windows. Not quite like street level, but we had a place to pee and an open bar and lotsa food.

winston legthigh:

here you can have mine from 2015. it was 40 degrees but at least the beer was cold.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm

That's cool, Hubig! One of my cousins was in the Rolling Elvi. I'd like to say I'm motivated to go to Iris and Tucks tomorrow before Endymion, but I'm really lazy the first part of Saturday. I turned down a spot on a float in Argus because I don't want to spend all day in Metairie and I didn't feel like shelling out $500 for throws. Plus I really have my heart set on St. Charles for Zulu and Rex, follow it all the way downtown.

Hey Mona and all, so great that you'll be meeting other fmu peeps. I loved that Erykah Badu track

Tucks was pretty blue collar, but still expensive, mariano. A friend described it as "a series of unrelated floats loosely based around a very vague theme "

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm

'Night, winston!

Thanks, Marie! So many pictures and vids of floats to sort through. Last night was almost 5 hours of continuous parade.

Hubig: Same here with "Pink Frost"! As soon as I heard the opening it took me right back to the day I discovered them on KPFA or KUSF back in the 90s. And yeah, you have to shell out if you want to belong to a krewe.

Really excellent selections tonight, Mona.

Huge score there, B R M!

why I like free-form. listening to the Ceremony tune, it came to me slowly, but then I heard a Wareham filligree, and then the hook so I knew it was a cover. Then he started singing ... brilliant, the dog marking his territory.
