Down – Underneath Everything

The song is from the first Down’s album -Nola (1995). I made the video with some cool Down’s photos. Enjoy!
Lyrcs:

Woe to me, battered man
Raise the monolith
Deities my spirit rise
Like days the world forgets – down the
Drain – laid to lame
A fool-ass hearty bliss
Borderline suicide,
Celebrate before my death
Your promised land divide,
That’s why the world lies.
I give up.
That’s enough. I give up.
I’m underneath my life.
Dog in heat, beware the street
Its there you’ll meet your end
Poverty is not for me,
But I’ll take her back again
To prove a point,
To laugh it off, to cross you off my path,
Grip the night, pull the cord,
A much inspired wrath.
Your promised land divide,
That’s where the world lies.
I give up.
That’s enough. I give up.
I’m underneath my life.
Carry me back from the war
And from the lord.

Can we live it from above…

Life in a Day Submission – New Orleans Female MMA Fighters

We have left our jobs and are currently traveling the world. On July 24th 2010, we happened to be in New Orleans, Louisiana (NOLA). We went to a local gym, met two very interesting female Mixed Martial Arts fighters and asked them to share their stories with us. They gave us insight into how Hurricane Katrina has affected the personality of NOLA and left behind a fighting spirit amongst the people. This is our submission for YouTube’s Life in a Day.

how is new orleans?Current residents or tourists please?

How is post-katrina new orleans? Can anyone tell me about the damage there? My husband and I want to come for mardi gras.Is the whole city under the curfew or just badly damaged parts?the media hasn’t really talked about. What tourism attractions are closed/open and which ones are good to see?

New Orleans is healing, some parts quicker than others. By Mardi-Gras, most of the tourist-y type places should be operational. (The zoo is open, the acquarium won’t be for quite a while, the D-day museum is trying to re-open ASAP, the cable cars are operational.)

The curfew was lifted last month, but there is still a very visual National Guard presence. I actually feel safer in NO than I have in years. The streets are less crowded now than they were last year at this time.

The biggest problem most neighborhoods in NO is having is lack of employees. Most grocery stores are closing around 7 or 8 because they just don’t have anyone to work the late shift. Of course, the french quarter and Bourbon Street are mostly open, and don’t close early. (There are a few bars, restaurants, and shops that haven’t re-opened – maybe 1/4 of them total.)

As far as the heavily damaged areas, they weren’t tourist attractions. They were residential areas, ones that the general public doesn’t have full access to yet.

So come to New Orleans! Our financial success is largely dependent on tourism. Oh, and definately make reservations today. A lot of the hotel/motels are housing insurance adjustors and construction crews. Availability is limited.

Regarding the guy who suggested you go to Opelousas: he’s right in that the Opelousas, Chataignier, Ville Platte Mardi Gras celebrations are more true to the original intent of the holiday. They’re more country, less tourist-y, just as much alcohol, fewer breasts. If that’s what you’re looking for, go on over there. Just don’t expect New Orleans style Mardi Gras. And realize that it’s a 2.5 – 3 hour drive from NO.


Can you plan a Baton Rouge/New Orleans vacation for 4 crazy teenagers?

We’re on a budget of $1200 all together.

Ages: 19,18,17,15. All girls.

We need:

A hotel for a week
Shopping
Partying
Lots of tourist attractions
Lots and Lots of food!!!!!

We don’t want to leave anyone out.

We need a hotel that allows 18 year olds to check in alone.

Any and all ideas are appreciated.

The Royal Street Courtyard hotel is a boutique hotel with hot-tub and beautiful gardens, authentic french quarter style rooms and really friendly. It’s run by a guy called Phil who is fantastic. I live in London but have been there three times in the last four years. There is a big suite at the top that would sleep you all for much less than $1200.

New Orleans is one of my favourite cities. I can recommend hanging out on Frenchman’s Street – it’s where the best real bars and clubs are – forget Bourbon street.

There’s also an African restaurant on Royal Street, near the hotel just into the French quarter that does the best food I’ve ever tasted.

Have fun. I wish I was back there now!

What should I do while staying in New Orleans?

My family is planning a trip to New Orleans for the week-end. We have three small daughters; ages 7, 5, & 2. What are some fun, "cheap" things we could take them to do? We are planning on the zoo and the aquarium. What else is there?

Lots to do but here are some ideas on a budget. Take them to the children’s museum, mardi gras world, the wax museum, a carriage ride, walk along jackson square and the river walk, a zephers baseball game, the IMAX theater, steamboat natchez, cafe du monde for beinets, take a streetcar ride. Enjoy!
