pre-halloweening

Saturday, Michael and I went down to the quarter. On a vain search for "old gays who might know about disco," we ended up at the Golden Lantern, where we found bad 80s music, without even videos (think Journey and Mr Mister.)

But did finally got to meet (quite fortuitously) Dave and his Bud who couldn't have been lovelier.

We also met a drunk who kept putting hands on me (but didn't know anything about disco), but that's another matter.

Michael brought along his fabulous brand new Iphone.

I forced him to take pictures of everything I could, so that I could vicariously live like a brand new fabulous Iphone owner for at least a few hours. Thank you Michael.





This is not Dave or Bud. It is Mommie and Christina, who also could not have been nicer.



This is a poster at a coffee house in the Marigny. I don't know what Russian Hooligan Songs are, but I almost want to find out.
Almost.










This is an ass crack.
We were driving behind a train of three such costumed merrymakers on bicycles, one with a giant pumpkin head, one who yelled out, "Greetings Mortals," and this one, riding on a seat six feet in the air on a bike in the shape of a dinosaur carcass.


This is his ass crack as he bent down to adjust a fibula or something.

Ahh NOLA at halloween! I miss it. Nowhere else in America 'gets' it like the French Quarter regulars.

Sound like you and Michael had a great evening, handsy drunkards not withstanding....

Love the Golden Lantern, was there just a few weeks ago. Cute bartender with a cowboy hat and a nice basket…um hum. I’m intrigued. What did you want to know about Disco? Cause I’m Disco curious too.

We just wanted to experiment with disco, you know.
I mean we're not fags or anything, we're just "di-curious," as TJB says.

Can I just say how much I love the phrase "old gays who might know about disco." Would old fag hags who know about diso do? If so, I'm your gal. I actually went to to Studio 54 when it was hot with a gang o' gays. We did poppers and everything!

Oh Elizabeth, I knew there was a reason I loved you.

OMG. Mommie and Christina are totally my friends Craig and Tom, respectively.

NOLA is such a small (gay) world.
