Do YOU Know What It Means...
Oh, how I miss my city this morning.
Understand, of course, that I wasn't born there. I wasn't raised there and I only lived there three years, but New Orleans is my city like no other is or ever will be. I smell it in my dreams sometimes (and yes, I like the smell), its music is my soul's soundtrack, and while I'm a picky enough eater to not truly get to enjoy the food, taking others to its finer eateries is one of my favorite things to do.
God bless, New Orleans, and God bless HBO for reminding me how wonderful it is.
I'm talking particularly about "Treme" (pronounced Tre-may) from Executive producer and creator David Simon ("The Wire"). The premier episode was this past Sunday and I finally had a chance to see it last night. It's now my #1 appointment television.
