Ghost of Jim Morrison?

Check it out, is it real? The picture was taken in 1997 at Jim Morrison’s grave site in Paris by Rock Historian Brett Meisner. (you can see half of his body in the picture as well, Jim is to the right) and has just surfaced now. The photo experts and the ghost experts have unequivocally denied any tampering or airbrushing has been done to this photo. In other words, it is real! Look close and you will see Jim in his famous spread-arm pose. You can check out this ghost photo and many others in the new book- ‘Ghosts Caught on Film2 : Photographs of the Unexplained’ Available now and just in time for Halloween.

Suck it in Kisstober

The New Orleans Film Festival has been a great success (it runs thru Thurs 10/15) Don’t forget about the VAMPIRE FILM FESTIVAL happening Kisstober 23 thru Kisstober 25. Featuring over 50 Vampire movies you can sink yer teeth into. In addition to movie screenings check out the Costume Contetsts, Vampire themed parties at the Saint and the Dungeon, snacks and drinks inspired by Vampire culture and even a Vampire Ballet! All screenings held at the Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center on Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. New Orleans is the city that made the myth of the Vampire. Let’s make this an annual must-attend film festival event and all suck it together.

So YOU think YOU’RE a KISS fan?!?!?!?

Really?  YOU think YOU’RE a KISS fan?  For some reason I don’t think you can touch the passion that KISS (something tells me that’s not his real name) – from The Green Room on Decatur – has for the band.  KISS was one of my favorite bands growing up.  Probably MY favorite band.  But, never in my wildest dreams would I have the cojones to celebrate my favorite band like KISS (probably not his real name…) has.  Check it out…

See what I’m sayin’? I knew a guy from Longview, Texas, that had a couple of KISS tattoos, but nothing like this. My friend Clint – HUGE KISS fan to this day. Owns things KISS doesn’t even know they put their name on. But, he has zero KISS tattoos. Until someone steps up and proves otherwise…I submit that KISS (maybe it is his real name…) IS THE ULTIMATE KISS FAN!!!! Look for him at the show (KISS at the Voodoo Music Experience) Halloween night…or at The Green Room.

BTW, new government rulings say that anytime a blogger appears to be promoting a person or establishment, they have to disclose any personal monetary gains derived from said promotion. That being said, if anyone from the FTC is reading this, I didn’t get a friggin’ dime for sharing KISS’s passion for a band he loves with my Bayou friends. So suck it!!!

Vampires, VoodooFest, Kisstober and KISS!

It is officially KISSTOBER on the Bayou! With Kiss headlining VoodFest Saturday Kisstober 31st-WORSHIP THE MUSIC! Keep it here all month to win tks and passes in the Miller VIP Tent. As we get ready for this bewitching season, now is a good time to introduce you to one of the greatest Vampire authors ever! Sure, we still have the masters-Anne Rice, Bram Stoker. And the recent chicks-Charlaine Harris and Stephenie Meyer. But you GOTTA check out J.R. Ward and the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Vampire King Wrath and his band of Vampire brothers take on the baddies. It is vital to your love of Vampire authors and novels that you check her books out! I like them because they don’t pay too much attention to humans. The Vampires are the shyte! Good Vampire love, sex, betrayal, gore. This may be good and bad, Hollywood has come a callin and may turn her books into a movie. I hope they don’t eff it up. Vampire believers check out her books! I believe Vampires are among us. And most of them are good creatures. Happy haunting this month!

Passion of the Mind

Google it. It’s the title of an old, obscure Demi Moore movie that came out in 2000. I had never heard of it either until 4a on Saturday when my aweful sleeping patterns kept me awake and I caught it on a movie channel. With a title like that, I didn’t think it was a porn. Porn would never use the word ‘mind’ in a title. When I saw Demi was in it I thought this must be one of her older, unknown movies when she still had a mustache. I got into this movie! I couldn’t believe what it was about! It blew my mind! It’s about this chick who doesn’t exactly have a split personality but she dreams constantly of an alternate, make believe life. I’ve been doing this for decades!! In the movie you see Demi’s character live 2 different lives. One she is a widow with 2 kids living as an artist of somesort in upstate New York. The other life is her as a single woman. Very ambitious and driven working in finance on Wall Street in New York City. You don’t know what life is real and what one is dreamed until the very end. Who doesn’t go into make-believe world?! I have since I was a kid. I used to pretend my parents were Sonny and Cher. I even called them that. They would answer to those names too! I have good parents, they always encouraged me. My Dad would say he was never a mustache man. Except for that one time he had to grow one because he lost a bet on the Superbowl. It never looked like Sonny’s. The year my parents dressed as Sonny and Cher for Halloween was when I stopped calling them that. Sometimes things are just better when they are make-believe. Jump ahead to my New Orleans era. Yall know about my make-pretend deal with Sidney (Torres) See, yall even play along! The Sid thing isn’t even a crush or anything. I mean, he’s hot and all but I’m taller than he is and I’m pretty sure I can take him. I basically just make all that s@hit up. (And he is a super super great sport about it) Before my boyfriend Todd passed away on July 3rd and my great sadness started, and the times he and I separated for whatever reason, I would go into full make believe Sidney mode. All my friends would play along. I would say things like- “me and Todd broke up so looks like Sidney is flying us all to NYC to go shopping”. Todd even played along. (god I love and miss him tons) We would get back together (everytime) and Todd would say-“this Sidney buisness is over”. My friends would still carry on with it though and say-“you and Todd are back together, does this mean Sid isn’t taking us out on the Yatch?”. And now during the great sadness (will it ever effin end?) I have taken 3 men I have mad crushes on and combined them into 1. A composite if you will. His name is David Ray George. Yup, he’s my new pretend boyfriend. George for Clooney, da! I really believe he is my future ex husband. David and Ray I think know that I exist but I’m pretty sure they don’t even notice me. All 3 are tall dark and handsome. And now they are one person. My friends ask- “What are you and David Ray George doing this weekend?” “Has David Ray George met the dogs?” “When are you and David Ray George going to Vegas?” All my invations from freinds are to Kat and David Ray George. Welcome to my crazy. I don’t think I need meds for this affliction. I think this is a healthy way to heal. (my shrink would prob disagree) Sometimes reality does bite. This is better. All my friends play along. Oh the support I get! I got good freinds! Back to the Demi movie- What you think is real isn’t. Turns out her real life was the one where she is the single, driven career woman! Who would dream about being a widow with 2 kids???!! Who would dream that? Like I said, we all have our crazy. Thanx for putting up with mine. David Ray George just walked in. He wants to take me to Adler’s to pick out jewelery. Gotta go….

“No Way I’m Eating There!!”

Ever walk by a restaurant, and decide immediately that you’re not going to eat there?  Dirty atmosphere?  The special of the day is NUTRIA? Surly staff?  Maybe THE NAME ALONE?  Check these out, and decide if you’d dine at any of these places…

The Hottest Band In The World!!! KISS!!!

By now, you know that KISS is headlining the Voodoo Music Festival on Halloween Night (Oct. 31)…but do you know what the stylish band will be wearing when they hit the stage?  The band has just released photos of the new KISS togs, and they look like this:

Nothing new, really…but, they seem to be excited by them, so we should, too.
After all, it is KISS, dammit! And there is none higher.  Right?!?!
