I took a bike ride. The I-10 was just about empty. At Xavier they were putting some newspaper dispensers on the back of a truck.
Homan came by with some hurricane mix. We made a few drinks and, with Xy, took a walk to the Bayou St. John to see what we could see before the curfew was imposed. Jason joined us there with a couple friends. We did observe some national guard troops passing by in trucks, but other than that there was little to see.
Even now, no rain, little wind. Looks like Mobile will be getting it bad, though.
Here’s what’s in my hurricane mix in iTunes:
Butterflies and Hurricanes Muse Calm Before The Storm Fall Out Boy Electrical Storm (William Orbit Mix) U2 Hurricane Bob Dylan Hurricane Roots, Common, Dice Raw, Mos Def Hurricane (weather patterns) something corporate Hurricane Party Cowboy Mouth Hurricane Storm Warning #1 Leopolds Hurricane Storm Warning #2 Leopolds Riders on the Storm The Doors Storm (Feat. Jay-Z) Lenny Kravitz Stormy Blues Billie Holiday & BB King Stormy Weather Billie Holliday Stormy Weather Nat King Cole & Ella Fitzgerald
I would have included “Rock You Like A Hurricane” and “Ridin’ the Storm Out,” but I can’t really stand to listen to the Scorpions or REO.
Viv and I have 2 shots of rum, lime juice, and a mango juice in our hurricane mix. We’re thinking of you all.
Midnight here in Central City and I have to say we’re all bored to tears. Beats the alternative!
You can listen to Lennie Kravitz but not the Scorpions???
