Metro in the Times-Picayune, Dr. Morris Benefit, etc.
1. What a sad sack spectacle the Metro section of the Times-Picayune on Monday has become. The Hammond Daily Star puts it to shame, I'm sure. The "new and improved" Metro section wouldn't even last through a trip to the Port O Potty at Jazz Fest. They might as well include a coloring page and maze in this version of the Metro.
2. The Dr. Morris benefit at One Eyed Jack's Saturday night was way cool, and Dr. Mrs. Clio and I saw a lot of way cool people. Supa Saint's performance was WAY too short. 80s style keyboard tunes played in front of a video projection of Saints highlights just can't be enjoyed in a four-minute snippet. Trust me, Supa Saint. Some things have to go on for 20 minutes to achieve greatness.
3. Also re the Dr. Morris benefit, when Dr. Mrs. Clio and I left at midnight, I had the distinct impression that things were just getting warmed up and that nakedness was going to ensue soon. I think that's why Dr. Mrs. Clio made sure we were leaving. Dr. Mrs. Clio and I are the kind of people who like to think and say not that "we've been around." Rather, we're more the kind of people who say, "We've been nearby."
