It’s apparently Mardi Gras in New Orleans, so since I’m not there despite numerous promises, sample a bit of life on Bourbon Street with this nifty QTVR panoramic photo. It needs Quicktime, and of course it wouldn’t be Mardi Gras without a woman lifting her shirt up. Quite cute one as well actually.
It takes me back to my days in New Orleans and Mardi Gras. Mind you, I was only 19 at the time and didn’t even have an ID card, let alone much money, so I spent most of it relatively sober. It’s definitely something to be done once in your youth – after all the constant noise, loud but great Cajun music (although ironically Cranberries and Linger will remind me the most of Mardi Gras’94), the smell of booze and piss and constant naked ladies isn’t as appealing in your 30s. Sounds like my flat during FA Cup Final day. Without the bare naked ladies.
Anyway, there’s a cracking photograph in my analogue photo (ie paper) archives – on the right of the frame, a naked lady baring her assets. On the left, a veritable barrage of camcorders, and cameras recording her assets.
It was even my one and only time in a strip club. Which, true to stereotype, was *full* of Japaneses businessmen. Dunno why, hentai is far more exciting. Call me a cheapskate, but if a woman is going to take her clothes off in front of me, I’d much rather that she was doing it because she wanted to as opposed to being paid for it.
Anyway, Mardi Gras. If you’re there, lucky dude!
And yes, this is a naked attempt to get more hits from search engines into my blog. Let’s see what happens!
