Switchfoot plays Bullet Soul @ New Orleans House of Blues- 11.21.2009

Switchfoot allowed a member of the audience (named Brandon) to come up and play Bullet Soul after they noticed a sign he was holding asking if he could do so. I’ve seen Switchfoot do this at other shows as well which is another reason that they’re probably my favorite band. These guys know the impact they make on a fan when they help them create this life long memory. Props to Switchfoot, what a great bunch of guys.

Who Dat Want Internet Service?

Hey y’all! Great news! I have just found out about a broadband satellite internet that is perfect for you guys down the bayou. You know how it is living out in the boonies, slow or no internet service.
WildBlue Satellite links your computer to the web at incredibly high speeds. It connects your home or small office at up to 30 times faster than a dial-up connection. All you need is one 26″ satellite mini-dish and a small modem.
WildBlue high-speed Satellite Internet Service has 5 gateways located throughout U.S. and Canada that efficiently connects the WildBlue satellite network with the Internet. Each gateway consists of microwave, Internet, and other broadband equipment that quickly and efficiently routes traffic from the customer’s PC to the Internet and back. WildBlue connects the gateways to Internet via state-of-the-art fiber backbone.
That may be a little more than you need to know but the important thing is that it works! And it works FAST! No more slow dial-up service, no more no service with WildBlue. WildBlue offers high speed internet access over satellite to virtually everywhere in the U.S. If you live within the 48 continental United States and have a clear view of the southern sky, (look toward the Gulf) WildBlue satellite broadband is available to you.

What has been done in New Orleans since Katrina, and what is being done?

It has been more than four years since Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. How has the city recovered from it? In your opinion, is the recovery effort behind or ahead of schedule? What is now being done to restore New Orleans back to its original feeling?

The historic parts of the city were all built on high ground and didn’t flood. There has also been huge progress in the past 4 years and most of the metro area now looks like Katrina never happened.

The city and metro area are still recovering from Katrina, and the process will take more years. Realize that Katrina was the worst natural disaster in US history and turned 90,000 square miles (an area larger than the UK) into a rubbish heap overnight. More buildings were destroyed in New Orleans alone (a small part of the disaster area) on the morning of August 29, 2005 than were destroyed in London by German bombs/rockets during all of WWII (the death toll in London was of course far, far higher).

In practical terms, the city & metro area are operating normally. Utilities like electricity/water/phone and city services like police/fire/ems/sanitation were all problematic in 2005-2006 but are back to normal. The area’s entertainment industry has also recovered.

There was a fear the "soul" of the city had been destroyed by Katrina, but that has not been the case.
