Gutterpunks: New Orleans Homeless Street Youth – PRE Katrina

Reporter Tim Estiloz visited New Orleans in this 1997 story about a group of homeless youth – dubbed by some in the city as “Gutterpunks”. Estiloz spent several days with this group of disaffected and indigent young people – many of whom willingly chose to live on the hard – sometimes dangerous, streets of “Pre-Katrina” New Orleans.

Most of these kids lived “day to day” begging for food and money. Some lived in deplorable conditions near the popular French Quarter… unimaginable in the years before Katrina. Estiloz gained the trust of many of these kids… who allowed Estiloz to follow them, interview them and show their difficult life on the streets – an existence that some city administrators and business people in New Orleans frown upon. This is a uniquely candid and sad window into a homeless youth underclass in New Orleans that existed well before Katrina… and also still exists today.

This story was written and produced by Tim Estiloz – who now reports on entertainment for CN8 – The Comcast Network.

SECRET NEW ORLEANS: TJ & Di Théâtre d’Orléans! Voodoo Vapors!

VIEUX CARRÉ CONFIDENTIAL! (series) episode #13! TJ Fisher and Di Harris adventures! The Hoo-hah Ladies of the French Quarter live life out loud! In this retro-style film clip — the funky, fun, chic and slightly mad fashionistas open up their world and take you with them! To unexpected places and French Quarter haunts! Tag along with the mad hattresses, and enjoy an armchair Voodoo-trance “window shopping” spell and spree on Royal Street, and beyond! Snippets of French Quarter life!

Well seasoned by an intriguing life stories that resemble weird Hollywood sagas flavored by sensational speculation, TJ and Di remain full of humor and fanciful visions. They are fearless wunderkind prone to incite, without compunction, a firestorm of controversy in their wake. The zany duo enjoy poking fun at themselves, as well as Hollywood “It” girls, rock star royalty, high society butterflies and Hollywood elite. Glitterati, literati, pundits and paparazzi are all fair game for VIEUX CARRÉ CONFIDENTIAL!

In an intoxicating old town that truly embraces the individual, these two one-of-a-kind women — similar to other colorful local fixtures — start trends instead of following them. First jokester TJ hunts for her koo-koo tweety bird, who is roosted atop her head. Playfully poised in front of the storefront window display of Di’s French Quarter international boutique, TJ gets the lowdown on tastemaker retailing. Zogwald’s features hip-glamour clothing and timeless collectibles. Next Di is seen shopping at the famed and gritty Bourbon Street Quartermaster Deli, a storied 24-hour grocery store of comfort food and colorful characters. The double-trouble pair of wild and whacky divas window-shop at Fleur De Paris couture millinery shop. Girly-girl, romantic and sophisticated hats! Chapeaus! Couture! Last the two appear in a quick-snapshot montage of French Quarter destinations, in a town uniquely well suited to a rolling parade of music stars, Mardi Gras queens, pretty princesses, glamour girls, big-eyed tourists and troublemakers.

Old world crawfish boils, bands, music, mystery, madness, hatboxes, vapors, steeples, spires, splendor — the New Orleans way! The Who Dat attitude!

TJ Fisher is the accolade-winning author of multiple works of New Orleans-based nonfiction and fiction. Award-winning designer Di Harris is the fashion maven and vintage vamp pinup artist behind the trademark “Oonkas Boonkas” style chic.

In New Orleans town, the time-honored circle of rosary beads, revelry and rue come together. Intriguing tales of unconventionalities abound. A wildly personal place, customs, sacraments and superstitions do not fit easily into any one category. That is what makes New Orleans particularly interesting, entertaining, amusing and controversial. It is a community of rich ethnicities, religions, opinions. The ancient city is a unique place of worship and frolic, introspection and self-discovery — for the holy and hedonistic alike. New Orleanians are mainly spiritual and yet separate and aloof, sometimes religious and sometimes not, deeply influenced by our existence and death on the edge. Known to be unorthodox, ideological, cryptic and philosophical, the people of New Orleans often take what they want from Catholicism, Baptism, Judaism and Voodooism — forming new conjunctions with their own cherished traditions. The truth is that the Crescent City takes in life with a different set of eyes, with an open and caring “anything-goes” attitude. Le Bon Temps Roule. Some call the locals idiosyncratic and iconoclastic, and it is true. Passions run rampant. Emotions are poured, provoked and stirred. Senses ignited. The spirit and soul of the city — the unique history, culture and customs — reign supreme.
