Just when you think New Orleans couldn't surprise you any more, you meet Luke Hooper.   Luke Hooper is the kind of character a Hollywood screenwriter would dream up. Tall and handsome. A semi-professional iron-man athlete who is also an award-winning inventor. He's invented a new version of delivering wireless power (yes, that's right, wireless power), creates futuristic games for children, designs creative solutions for giant companies like Nike, and has defended...

The Gospel According to Management

The Gospel According to Management
February 13, 2019

There's a fine line between Jesus and The Man. Jesus wants you to do things His way and he holds out the specter of sending you to Hell forever if you don't comply. On the other hand, management and their proxies, consultants, have you buy in to a better way of life for everyone right now: tell us what you want and we'll tell it back to you, how we...

Here's everything you need to know about this week's Happy Hour: if you're disgruntled about the Rolling Stones playing Jazz Fest, there's a subversion plan afoot.

The plan involves everyone sitting around the table at this Happy Hour to pull it off. The key player is Katherine Klimitas.   Katherine... Read More »

The Totally Random All Cajun Happy Hour Special

The Totally Random All Cajun Happy Hour Special
January 30, 2019

Happy Hour is billed as "Random conversation with folks who have nothing in common." Anything that's truly random will, sooner or later, appear to us not to be. Like flipping a coin and getting four "heads" in a row. Or inviting random people to sit around a table at a bar in New Orleans and discovering they're all Cajun. Louis Michot is the fiddle player and lead singer in the Cajun... Read More »

Kimberly Kaye woke up at 3AM one morning and knew she was dying.

Lori Tipton is the most popular guest in Happy Hour history.   Last time Lori was here she talked about her shallow vagina and how she had to become intimately familiar with its intricacies in pursuit of self-administered insemination (aka turkey baster). As impossible as it sounds, today Lori has an even more amazing story to tell. Today's story includes details of Lori's mother's escapades in strip clubs on Bourbon Street where... Read More »

January 9, 2019

This is probably not quite how Kate Becker intended her serious practice of healing and self-development through breath-work to be interpreted, but did you know you can get high AF from breathing? Breath-work is cheaper than drugs and the effects of happiness linger on and reverberate through your life long after the high is gone. You might ask, "Why aren't we all doing it?" Well, exactly!   Rene Coman, the super-smart bass player... Read More »

You Can Be Right Or You Can Be Christmas
November 28, 2018

If you're even the tiniest bit cynical about Christmas, you have got to hear Debbie Davis's impassioned explanation of why Christmas matters. We're so used to thinking we have to be be smart, ironic and funny in conversation that it's shocking to hear a completely unvarnished, sincere, heartfelt defense of simple niceness. And then the big question: why can't we be like this all year? The answer might lie in Debbie's... Read More »

Thomas Cole found America so polarized that he no longer wanted to live here, and moved to India. That was 1969. Thomas stayed in India, Nepal, Thailand, Tibet and Afghanistan for 16 out of the 20 next years where he became what-we-don't-dare-call a "rug merchant." Thomas a far more elegant title for that occupation, and now he has a new, double-barreled occupational handle and achievement - he's an author/photographer. Thomas's new... Read More »
