Greetings From Debrisville

Thanks to Athenae for the invite and the warm welcome. She just did something either foolhardy or semi-brilliant by inviting me to join the gang at First Draft. I’ll let you be the judge of that. For my own part, I’m happy to be here: I’m a longtime reader, occasional commenter and sporadic passenger in the crack van. Love that shag rug, A. I hope that Scout will still bring the ham…

I’ve lived in New Orleans (aka Debrisville) since 1987 and have been blogging asAdrastos since December 2005. I suspect you can figure out what inspired me to start bloviating on the internets: Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent federal flood.

I’ve worn a lot of different hats over the years. I’ve been a musician, tour guide, congressional aide, lawyer and I’m now a small business owner in the French Quarter, which means that there’s very little that surprises or shocks me.

My style as a blogger is best summarized by Chuckles the clown’s mantra: “a little song, a little dance, a little seltzer down the pants.” In short, I throw a lot of shit aganst the wall and hope that some of it sticks.

The only thing that gave me pause about joining the First Draft krewe is that I don’t say fuck as much as Athenae or Jude. Once I was assured that there wasn’t a quota I said: what the fuck, why the fuck not? But just in case I’m expected to swear like a Greek sailor, here’s Warren Zevon with My Shit’s Fucked Up:

    Yes they take on all comers here at the Draft, eh?
    I know how Warren felt, so I’m always looking forward to some of your Lagniappe Noir.
