Bourbon Street

Free comic book day at Galactic Quest http://www.galacticquest.com/ and we enjoyed some great music from the Lost Boys. To see pictures go here: http://house-koloth.smugmug.com/gallery/8084707_Q7Xvh#527088633_kX8Gh. My apologies for the audio track, I wasnâ??t planning on taking video so I had used my camera as opposed to my camcorder. All in all it was a lot of fun!

DSCB & Mrs. Einstein – Bourbon Street Parade

Dutch Swing College Band & Mrs. Einstein – Bourbon Street Parade

Burghausen (Germany), 2007 March 17

A popular saying goes: “There are two kinds of music, good music and bad music”. For the true fan of good traditional jazz music the choice is simple, because there is only one Dutch Swing College Band. The Dutch Swing College Band started out as an amateur-college combo on liberation day (1945, may 5th) and through the years it has grown into a worldfamous jazz ensemble that has toured all five continents to much acclaim. The DSC played a prominent role during the post-war period. At the time many youngsters fell under the spell of the original Amerian music: jazz. The band, which has existed for more than sixty years, has given concerts all over the world and the sounds have been registered on practically all types of sound recordings since 1945. The band also appeared frequently on TV and in film productions. Through the years many big names in jazz music were backed by the DSC, from Sidney Bechet, Joe Venuti and Rita Reys to Teddy Wilson. The expression “The Haque School” was born out of the big influence of the DSC on the Dutch jazz scene. Deservedly many jazz fans consider the DSC almost as an institution. Fortunately, the Dutch Swing College Band has never presented itself as a show or glitter orchestra. The musicians have always succeeded in capturing the public’s attention with their excellent jazz performances. Cheap show tricks were absolutely out of the question. In 1960, the DSC turned professional. Throughout the music’s evolution and in spite of quite a number af personnel changes (and contary to many imitators) the DSC remained the showpiece of Dutch traditional jazz music. Bob Kaper heads the current line-up, in succession to Frans Vink Jr (1945-’46), Joop Schrier (1955-’60) and Peter Schilperoort (1946-’55 and 1960-’90). From the very beginning the most striking characteristic of the band has always been its unique and recognizable sound. In other words, no recordings of American virtuosos were ever copied: the DSC created their own interpretations, arrangements or compositions. An entirely personal approach. The current line-up of the highly experienced band has proved that the old name Dutch Swing College Band still guarantees professional performances of traditional jazz music of international standard!

I think I need I need a morning after pill. PS. I’m a dude.

The pill you need is penicillin. It will correct you issues. By now, your wang wang is green and about to fall off I am sure.


The Story of Milk Studio – It Does a Body Good

Gather round my friends and you will hear the story of a Louisiana couple who persevered.  Once upon a time Mindy owned a lingerie shop on Decatur Street in the New Orleans French Quarter.  In the wake of Hurricane Katrina the city was in turmoil, and full of construction workers who didn’t need lingerie.  Desperate to save her retail space Mindy put the same artistic talent she had used to do the graphic designs on her lingerie to use on handcrafts.
 
Enter David the limo driver. Katrina also did a number on David. Leaving 10 feet of water in his home and making the need for limo drivers, even 25 year veteran limo drivers, basically non-existent in the Big Easy.  It looked like David needed a plan.  So with no place to stay and no job David moved to the French Quarter to try to find work.  What he found was Mindy.  Mindy needed someone to work her table in the French Market and David needed a job.  Sounds like a plan to me.
 
Mindy and David took their plan and a prayer and together turned a floundering lingerie shop into a flourishing business.  These guys with camera in hand went around the area taking pictures of NOLA landmarks, hotspots, and businesses. In a 3 day process that demonstrates detailed workmanship they create distinctive works of art in each beautiful glazed tile coaster, magnet and apron that are loved by locals and visitors alike.

Appreciating their efforts to keep intact some of the culture and history of the city, people started bringing in old grocery bags, matchbooks, notebooks, etc. The rest as they say is history, three years worth.

Next time you are in the French Market look for David and let him share some of his wonderfully nostalgic NOLA stories or stop in to see Mindy at the Milk Studio headquarters at 1309  Decatur and check out the new line of soy candles.  You can also visit David and Mindy at mindy@milkstudio.com           

I am inspired and humbled by the innovative people all over this great state, people like David and Mindy, who have suffered through devastating hurricanes, the aftermath and just rolled up their sleeves, picked up the pieces and kept right on going. Don’t you just love happy endings, it does a body good!
