Michael Buble Stalked by Velociraptor

Was in need of a good laugh today, and then Josh sent me this. I couldn't even begin to tell you why it's hilarious; it. just. is.

That is some excellent PhotoShop.

In other news: I will soon be acquiring "1 Dead in Attic" which was recommended to me by several New Orleanders (is that the correct word? Who cares? It's Friday.) to supplement my understanding of post-Katrina NOLA.

In other news: went to see Ben Folds on Wednesday night (4th time I've seen him live), and he was just as phenomenal a performer in 2010 as he was in 2001, the first time I saw him. He played some ancient Ben Folds Five ("Army," "Brick," and "Kate," to name a few) as well as some more current songs reflective of pop culture. I love the collaboration of Nick Hornby and Ben Folds. Dreamy. AND, he did Chat Roulette live on-stage during his performance. I didn't know anything about Chat Roulette, and now most of what I know is that it's questionable at best and downright disgusting at worst. Still, hilarious.

Happy Friday.

Great blog, Glitterati. Excellent observations. I have a couple of notes:

It's New Orleanians.
Or-lean-e-ans. But who's counting?

One Dead in the Attic is fantastic, and you'll be inspired by Chris Rose's dynamic and engaging writing style to be sure...

Also, to add to this argument about who did what and in Gliteratti's defense - it's a simple grammatical error. Unfortunately, it has much larger implications, and we, battered and bruised New Orleanians, take that to heart. No offense taken, Glitterati.

AND, the federal government commissioned the Army Corps of Engineers to build the levees to create a larger tax base. I.E. People build homes, have to pay property taxes, that property isn't considered in a flood zone because it has levee protection and therefore is not required to have flood insurance.

Just adding complication to the government's blatant insult, Sidd
