Photos of the Day

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

Here are a few shots and a short video of a great old-timey band I caught on Royal Street in New Orleans Saturday. They’re called the Loose Marbles.

Still working out how to shoot video with the new camera, as you can see by the (lack of) focus.

    Off topic must see TV: Occupy Atlanta does it’s best Monty Python meets Animal Farm impersonation. Bonus points for creepy incantation chanting of everything the speaker says.

    Beyond Python and Animal Farm, I was reminded of an old Steve Martin bit:

    Let’s say the Non-Conformist’s code. Repeat after me:

    I Promise to be Different!….

    I Promise to be Unique!….

    I Promise not to repeat things other people say!”

    Is that your pup in the middle of the band?

    Loose marbles = awesome. Meschiya lake has a voice that can cause the ground to shake.

    Hm, apparently she’s not with the loose marbles anymore. Pity.

    I love the Loose Marbles! I do swing / vintage jazz dancing. Actually, we’re headed to Philly in November for a dance with them. Small world. Yonemoto, Meschiya’s with the Little Big Horns now, we just had them at a dance not too long ago in Baltimore. She is amazing.

    I think I’d still be playing clarinet if I could have played in a band like that. I’m not knocking playing Earth Wind and Fire in a marching band, but I am knocking 2nd clarinet parts to Disney songs.

    My dog looks exactly like that one. Guess she’s not one of a kind after all.

    Looks like they outnumber Occupy New Orleans.

    Know her through “vintage” dancing, too.
