I will start with this is not the best BBQ place in New Orleans, not even in uptown (Ms. Heisters or whatever on S. Claiborne is excellent).
The potato salad is the worst potato salad I have had in a long time. It is consistently bad. I went to Voodoo BBQ to watch the NFC championship game and ordered a plate.
It came with sour tasting potato salad and cut up hot dogs for “pork.” Best in New Orleans? Give me a break! It is a shame that this place is as popular as it is. It’s in a prime location and it really does a disservice to New Orleans.
TV is just something I hardly watch. One of the very few exceptions to that is watching NFL football. I do not own a TV and am online a lot at home and at work so watching NFL football works best for me on my computer if I am not going to sports bras/sports bars. I stumbled on this website in week 7 of this season. There’s not many other ways to describe it besides: IT’S THE SHIT! Here are three steps to watch free live NFL online:
- Go to the following website: http://www.wiziwig.tv/competition.php?part=sports&discipline=americanfootball
- Click “live”
- Click where it says “play now!” (Make sure it is one of the flash channels so you do not have to download anything)
And Voila! Free football on your computer. Thank me later.
Geaux Saints! 5-8
I have found one simple weight lifting website that appears to be circa 1998 and has stood the test of time. It shows every single exercise for every single muscle in your body except for your weiny, tongue, and ears. It even shows an instant .gif of how to perform the exercise without having the need to let a slow ass youtube video load. It even has exercises for your booty cheeks. Anyway, here it is:
Peep it out chumps and stop skipping your leg workout days!!!

I am a big fan of rap music. I am an even bigger fan of underground/non-mainstream rap. I may be the biggest fan of the beats used in all of rap. Call me niche’ or what have you but I know a great beat when I hear one. The following items constitute a good beat:
1. A nice bass line
2. A chord playing underneath the song
3. Good drums
4. A man singing on the hook (think 2010 Kush and Orange Juice Wiz Khalifa only singing on the hook)
5. Optional – Instruments not usually involved in a rap song: guitar, violin, saxophone, etc
I could care less what the lyricist is saying. The lyricist can only help the great beat as long as her or she stay on beat. For me, lyrics are overrated. I have associates who will insist I listen to a song so that I can hear what so and so said in witty and slick ways. I oftentimes listen and then need to cut the listening session short due to the absence of a viable beat. I would say, “Look bra, it’s nice and all but I can’t listen to it because of that rubbish beat,” and then they become frustrated with me and say I am stupid. We wind up arguing and become pissed at each other for an hour or so then we are okay again after a few brewskis. There are clearly two camps on this issue:
1. The beat camp, like me, who tend to enjoy the music and I bet comprise of mostly musicians or wannabes.
2. The lyric camp, who themselves are mindless souls and bop their pitiful heads to any damn thing that makes noise including to but not limited to: crickets, lawnmowers, printing sounds, and cars riding above steel grade bridges AS LONG AS someone is spitting above average Lloyd Banksish punchlines.
What camp are you in?

What running back controversy? There is none. The clear winner is Chris Ivory not Mark Inchgram. Just take a look at the numbers from the Saints own website! (I will update this at the end of the season)

That’s about all folks! Booooo!
As in most post-WWII communities across the United States, most residential districts are only residential. This causes the main arteries in such a community to be the only places with commercial development. Oftentimes, the majority of the commercial development in regards to food is none other than drive-thru fast food or take-out. What Gentilly lacks as does most ‘newer’ parts of New Orleans is walk-up cafes and higher-quality restaurants.
Here are some restaurants in Gentilly (Leon C. Simon is in Seabrook and does not count):
- Good Time Sushi on Elysian Fields
- 2 McDonald’s (Elysian Fields loc and Old Gentilly Road loc)
- 2 Burger Kings (Elysian Fields loc and Chef loc)
- Burger Orleans on Gentilly
- Subway on Caton
- McKenzie’s Chicken in a Box
- Papa John’s Pizza on Robert E. Lee
- (2) Popeyes (Elysian Fields loc and Chef loc)
- (2) Wendy’s (Elysian Fields loc and Chef loc)
- Taco Bell on Chef
- String of restaurants on Franklin Ave (Fleury of Wings?)
- Chinese Tea Garden/Kitchen on Filmore
- Sammy’s Food which is NOT OPEN FOR DINNER
- New food joint that always changes ownership (old Nacho Mama’s site)
- Daiquiri shop on Elysian Fields is you count bar food
- Gas stations such as Brothers that sell greasy fried food
That’s a large number of mostly fast food joints. Where are the cafes? Where are the steakhouses? Where are the bar and grills? Why is Gentilly a different world from Magazine St. restaurant-wise? Why is the daiquiri shop the ONLY place to sit, eat, and grab a drink in Gentilly?
If you are a restaurant owner and exist within Gentilly, make yourself known so I can frequent you. One day, I will open up a cafe and you will come thru.
