Kim Bergeron & Donna O’Daniels,

knowledge is power

The Nov. 6 elections produced some surprises — along with the usual carnage.

both of St. Tammany Parish, organized “Train of Hope,” a drive to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The two collected relief supplies and loaded them onto Amtrak’s Crescent, which stops in Slidell on its way to Newark, N.J. In a statement, Bergeron said that, as residents of a suburban area, they felt compelled to help towns in the Northeast that might be otherwise overlooked.

By Clancy DuBos

John Biguenet

winnas, Loozas ... and Hanging Chads

received the Louisiana Writer Award last month at the Louisiana Book Festival in Baton Rouge. Biguenet, a novelist, poet and instructor at Loyola University, is also the author of the Rising Water trilogy of plays about New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina. The final play in the cycle, Mold, will premiere next year at Southern Rep.



1. Charter School Advocates — Two of the three new faces on the Orleans Parish School Board (Sarah Usdin and Leslie Ellison) have strong ties to the local charter movement. The third new face, Nolan Marshall Jr., does not oppose charters per se. Usdin’s race more than any other put charter schools at the center of an election. Statewide, voters last week imposed term limits on all Louisiana school boards, which will help charter advocates elect more allies to local school boards. Another interesting twist on the New Orleans school board races: The two board members who fought each other the most during the past four years — Brett Bonin and Thomas Robichaux — both lost. 2. New Faces — At almost every turn in local races — from the Court of Appeal to 2nd City Court, from the school board to the New Orleans City Council — newbies carried the day. This is not unheard of, but it is unusual, and it always reflects a paradigm shift in local politics. 3. Louisiana Republicans — The Bayou State remains politically counter-cyclical. Mitt Romney failed to capture the White House, but the state GOP still holds five of six congressional seats and probably will pick up a seat on the state Supreme Court. Everywhere outside New Orleans, Republicans pretty much boxed out the Democrats in major elections. 4. Gun Rights Advocates — Despite opposition from the news media, sheriffs and district attorneys, gun advocates (particularly the NRA) won big with the passage of Amendment 2. The amendment makes it more difficult (but not impossible) to restrict gun ownership and possession in Louisiana by requiring gun restrictions to meet a higher constitutional standard (“strict scrutiny”) when challenged in court. 5. Mayor Mitch Landrieu — Just about every candidate Hiz-


zoner endorsed either won outright or made it to a runoff last Tuesday. Mayor Mitch He also played a major role in the Landrieu’s push to renew the bridge tolls. Unendorsements like his predecessor, this mayor’s carried weight this got coattails. election season. 6. Environmental Trial LawPHOTO BY CHERYL GERBER yers — In the special election to succeed Chief Justice Kitty Kimball (in a Baton Rouge-based district), environmental plaintiff lawyers backed Republican appellate Judge Jeff Hughes with a huge “independent” ad campaign on his behalf. The attorneys behind so-called “legacy lawsuits” have taken a beating in recent legislative sessions, but they could turn their fortunes around by electing friends to the state Supreme Court. Hughes looks to be their ticket. He’s in a Dec. 8 runoff against fellow appellate Judge John Michael Guidry, a black Democrat. The runoff is expected to see a much lower black and Democratic turnout than last Tuesday’s presidential race. 7. U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond — It was no surprise that the New Orleans congressman won re-election against four challengers in his redrawn district. What many didn’t notice was the hand he played in helping several down-ballot candidates. Richmond’s friend and former classmate Edwin Shorty Jr. narrowly defeated veteran 2nd City Court Constable Ennis Grundmeyer in Algiers, and Dana Kaplan’s strong showing in the District B

presented Cafe Reconcile with a $25,000 grant. Cafe Reconcile, which provides young people with culinary and hospitality industry training, is building a new facility at its Central City location, which will eventually double the number of people it can train. The grant will underwrite training costs for a class of 15 people.

Rudy Giuliani

overtly attempted to politicize the Hurricane Sandy tragedy last week when he said “FEMA has dropped the ball, certainly as big as they did with Katrina, maybe bigger.” Even some of his fellow Republicans objected. N.J. Gov. Chris Christie said the federal response has been “great,” while GOP strategist Ed Gillespie, an advisor to Mitt Romney, said, “There’s a good working relationship between the state and the federal government.”

Will Sean Payton be the New Orleans Saints’ head coach next year?

Gambit > > november 13 > 2012

lections afford the ultimate opportunity to study human behavior and decision making. No two elections are alike, but the stakes are almost always the same, especially when the race for the White House tops the ballot: Everything is in play. For almost three decades I have published my list of “Winnas” and “Loozas,” and I typically write from a local rather than national perspective. After my column last week concluded that “all politics is national” these days, I decided to include a few national winnas and loozas this time. Another change — this time, at least — reflects the near-dead heat on the question of whether to renew tolls on the Crescent City Connection. At press time, the tolls were passing by a mere 8 votes out of nearly 309,000 cast, but some military and overseas ballots were yet to be counted in Orleans Parish. I therefore added a new category for purposes of this analysis: Hanging Chads. At some point, the referendum will be decided — perhaps by a recount, perhaps by the courts. (Note: I will update this column online at as soon as all votes are counted.) And so we begin with …

City Council race also owed in part to Richmond’s support. 8. Lakefront Advocates — supporters of the so-called nonflood assets along the lakefront won big with the overwhelming vote to renew the Orleans Levee District millage for 30 years. The regional levee board tried to put the millage renewal on the ballot without any money for the non-flood assets (including Lakeshore Drive, Lakefront Airport, two marinas and more), but state sen. ed Murray forced the board to dedicate a portion of the millage to those assets. 9. Private Nursing Homes — The nursing home industry historically wields a lot of clout with state lawmakers, and passage of Amendment 1 puts one of their primary funding sources in the state constitution, thereby rendering it “untouchable” during lean budget years. something about the sound of “The Louisiana Medicaid Trust Fund for the elderly” sounded sacred — but the amendment actually was “The Trust Fund for Private Nursing Homes.” Now for some national “winnas.” • Democratic Women — The senate will now have 20 women members, a record. Four of the five new women in the senate are Democrats (the exception: Deb Fischer of Nebraska). while Mitt Romney carried Missouri, the “show Me” state re-elected Democrat Claire McCaskill over GOP challenger U.s. Rep. Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin. Democratic challenger elizabeth warren of Massachusetts beat Republican U.s. sen. scott Brown, who previously won a special election to succeed the late Ted Kennedy. Dem Mazie Hirono of Hawaii beat the state’s former GOP Gov. Linda Lingle. And Dem Tammy Baldwin of wisconsin became the first openly gay candidate in history to win a U.s. senate seat. • Same-Sex Marriage Proponents — voters in washington, Maryland and Maine ratified gay marriage in their states. That’s the first time such unions have been blessed by popular vote rather than court decisions. Meanwhile, Minnesota voters beat back an attempt to write anti-same-sex marriage language into that state’s constitution. same-sex marriage will now be legal in nine states and the District of Columbia, and Barack Obama is the first president to express his support for same-sex marriage. • Young Voters — Despite anecdotes about youth apathy, voters under 30 turned out in greater numbers than they did in 2008. exit polls showed 60 percent of them voted for President Obama.

    1. Gov. Bobby Jindal — Mitt Romney’s loss guarantees that our  ambitious governor will not be leaving Louisiana soon, except to continue his travels in pursuit of The Next Big Thing for Bobby. Worse yet  for Jindal, for the first time in his political career, he will have to face the  consequences of his policy decisions before moving on to another job.  Does he care? I’m betting we won’t see much more of him in the next  three years than we’ve seen in the past four months. All those recent  campaign stops weren’t for Mitt Romney; they were for Bobby Jindal  ’16. In addition to having to trudge through the next three years as governor, however, Jindal must deal with the fact that the nation is moving  toward the middle, not farther to the right. That means he could be past  his “sell by” date when 2016 finally rolls around.      2. Local Incumbents — From the judiciary to the school board,  New Orleans incumbents fared very badly last Tuesday. Three of the  six Orleans Parish School Board members who sought re-election lost  — all to people who had never run for office before. On the bench, 4th  Circuit Court of Appeal Chief Judge Charles Jones lost to an unknown  who had previously lost several races for district court judgeships.  (Many suspect Jones “took a dive” in that race because his challenger,  Sandra Cabrina Jenkins, once clerked for Jones and they have remained close since then.) Appellate Judge Paul Bonin was re-elected  automatically when his opponent withdrew, but she pulled out too late  to have her name taken off the ballot. She got more votes than Bonin —  even though they didn’t count.     3. Louisiana Democrats — As if we needed more proof that when  the rest of the country zigs, Louisiana zags: The state Democratic party  couldn’t get a single candidate into a regional or congressional runoff  against a Republican.      4. The Algiers Courthouse Crowd — The Powers That Be in Algiers lost all three positions at 2nd City Court, which has been a staple  of their political clout for decades. Those positions — constable, clerk  and judge — have for years been held by whites with strong ties to the  Old Guard. Going forward, blacks will hold all three posts. One exception to the Courthouse Gang’s defeat: In the clerk’s race, state Sen.  David Heitmeier broke with the Old Guard to help Darren Lombard  defeat Adam Lambert, an ally of 2nd City Court Judge KK Norman.      Here are the national “loozas.”     • Grumpy Old White Men — Some say that’s pretty much who  comprises — or at least runs — the GOP. If that’s true, they were big  losers. As one GOWM told me last week, “We are no longer relevant  nationally.” New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof put the GOP’s  quandary in perspective, writing, “America needs a plausible centerright opposition party to hold Obama’s feet to the fire, not just a collection of Tea-Party cranks.”      • Conservative SuperPACs — Big money donors poured hundreds of millions of dollars poured into SuperPACs, many of them controlled or heavily influenced by Republican strategist Karl Rove. In the  end they had little to show for it. Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson  alone sank tens of millions into eight races, and came up 0 for 8.      • Male Chauvinism — Several Republican candidates who made  insensitive or clueless comments about rape and/or abortion lost their  races, including U.S. Rep. Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin and Richard  Mourdock, an Indiana Senate candidate who suggested it was “God’s  will” when a woman became pregnant due to rape. Tea Party favorite  U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh of Illinois said he was pro-life without exception, then added, “The life of the woman is not an exception.” He was  thumped by challenger Tammy Duckworth, a Democrat and war hero  who lost both her legs on the battlefield in Iraq.     And finally …

“STRICT SCRUTINY” FOR GUN RESTRICTIONS     Louisiana voters overwhelmingly  backed a proposed state constitutional  amendment to strengthen Second  Amendment rights in the state. Nearly  75 percent of voters — more than 1.3  million — voted in favor of Act 784, which  makes gun ownership a “fundamental  right … under strict scrutiny of the court.”     “Strict scrutiny” applies the highest  standard of judicial review to any law  concerning gun ownership. It typically is applied to human rights and  other “fundamental rights” under the  constitution. Owning a gun in Louisiana is now a “fundamental right.” Any  proposed laws restricting gun ownership (whether on a school campus,  government building, in the hands of a  convicted felon) could be challenged.     In Orleans Parish, more than 70,000  people voted against the measure, 

which had fewer than 68,000 supporters — but in neighboring Jefferson  Parish, 106,498 people voted for it, with  only 51,962 voting against.     The bill was the subject of a heated  debate in May, when State Sen. Neil Reiser pitched his National Rifle Association-backed measure to Louisiana’s  House Committee on Criminal Justice,  where it ultimately passed 9-5. In May,  it passed in the House by a 77-22 vote.  Reiser boasted the bill would “give Louisiana the strongest Second Amendment  right in the nation.”     Reiser’s bill had near-unanimous  Republican support in the state legislature, while Democrats opposed it — as  did Louisiana district attorneys Leon Cannizzaro of Orleans Parish, Charles Ballay of Plaquemines Parish and John DeRosier of Calcasieu Parish, as well  as the good government watchdog  group Council for a Better Louisiana.     “I can guarantee you (the amendment)  does not stop crime in Orleans Parish,”  Cannizzaro said at the May committee  hearing. Before it passed the House,  state Rep. Terry Landry, former Louisiana State Police commander, and other  House Democrats repeatedly asked  “why now” and why Louisiana needs  fewer restrictions on gun ownership.  Reiser and others said it would preserve  gun rights in future sessions.  — ALEX WOODWARD

Public defender woes

EIGHT LAWYERS TO BE FIRED Orleans Parish Chief Public Defender Derwyn Bunton last week asked City Council to maintain the public defender’s office’s budget allocation. Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s proposed 2013 budget cuts nearly every city department by about 10 percent. Bunton’s portion of the city budget — funded through a grant rather than a departmental allocation — is slated to be cut by one-third, from $1.2 million to $800,000. The office receives most of its $7 million annual operating budget from a combination of state funds and local court fines, but the local cut will mean the office — which represented about 80 percent of the city’s criminal defendants in thousands of felony and misdemeanor cases last year — will have to fire eight lawyers from its current staff of 55, Bunton said. “we already have more cases than we have lawyers who can — ethically or within standards — represent,” he said. — CHARLes MALDONADO


• The Baton Rouge political website The Hayride last week noted a National Enquirer “expose” claiming President

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama were considering divorce. Hayride founder Scott McKay said he was skeptical of the report, but added, “On the other hand, there had to be something behind the rather unusual phenomenon of Michelle’s mother [Marian Robinson] — Barack’s motherin-law — moving into the white House. He’s president of the United states of America, and his mother-in-law lives with him. That indicates an unconventional family situation, or at least a guy who’s not in control of his scene. An Alpha Male, he’s not.” OK, McKay … • while all four City Council District B candidates threw election night parties at local restaurants and clubs, only one got to hold it in his own restaurant. Marlon Horton, aka 10th ward Buck, owns Finger Lickin’ wings on Jackson Avenue, and he gathered there with supporters to watch the results roll in. He placed last in a field of four … • Former Louisiana state Rep. Tony Perkins, now head of the washington D.C.-based Family Research Council, was predictably displeased with last week’s election results, writing the next day, “This was supposed to be the morning when Americans got up and shook off the nightmare of the last four years. instead, they awakened to a new one: a profound drubbing of the Republican Party that is supposed to be the guardian of the conservative vision our nation so desperately needs.” He added. “On every level — presidential, congressional, social — it was a bruising day for our movement that no amount of spin can improve. Americans had a choice, and they made it.” • surprise: President Barack Obama got nearly 38 percent of the vote in Jefferson Parish last Tuesday. This reflects the parish’s growing black population, which will be a force in future elections. statewide, Obama got more than 100,000 more votes last Tuesday than Gov. Bobby Jindal received in his 2011 re-election campaign, which was dubbed a “landslide” by some pundits …

complaints, studying the effectiveness of New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) policy and oversight of the Public integrity Bureau. Hutson has said her portion of the OiG budget — which pays for a staff of four — has inhibited the office’s ability to carry out that mandate. “i want you to do more,” said council president Stacy Head last week, adding that she wanted to give her more resources. Head and other council members were particularly interested in Hutson’s involvement in the proposed consent decree between the NOPD and the U.s. Department of Justice (DOJ). The consent decree calls for a federal monitor to oversee NOPD’s progress. The city and DOJ are in the process of identifying a contractor for the job, which will be worth approximately $10 million over the four-to-five-year life of the decree. Hutson said that despite her experience with police consent decrees — she worked in the OiG for the Los Angeles Police Department while it was under a consent decree — the city has not sought her counsel in identifying a company for the contract. Head asked the Landrieu administration to get Hutson’s input in the process. The selection of the consent decree monitor will be made jointly by the DOJ and the city,” mayoral spokesman Ryan Berni told councilmembers, adding that any decision to increase Hutson’s role would be up to U.s. District Court Judge Susie Morgan, who is overseeing the implementation of the agreement. Budget hearings are set to continue this week beginning with Criminal District Court, District Attorney’s office and the Orleans Parish sheriff’s Office on Monday. — CHARLes MALDONADO



thinking out loud

After Sandy

Gambit > > november 13 > 2012

n the days after the 9/11 attacks, Louisianans came together to support New Yorkers. One of the most memorable gestures was the “Spirit of Louisiana,” a fire truck specially built as a gift to the New York City Fire Department (FDNY). Three and a half years later, after Hurricane Katrina, when New Orleans lost much of its own firefighting equipment, the FDNY sent down firefighters to help in the recovery — and returned the Spirit of Louisiana with thanks. It was decommissioned in 2010 after nine years. Last week, at the request of New York state, it was returned to service to help in the recovery following Hurricane Sandy. Our bonds with New Yorkers run deep. No other city in America can understand so completely what people in New York, New Jersey and elsewhere are going through because of Hurricane Sandy. We know what it’s like to get by, benumbed and moment to moment, in the first days after a devastating storm. More important, we know what it’s like to pick up the pieces in the months and years afterward when you’ve lost everything you own in a gush of filthy water or a slurry of mud. Along the way, we learned a lot from hard experience. In the spirit of deepening our

bonds with New Yorkers, we share some of those lessons now. We know all too well what it’s like having to replace the thousands of items that make a house a home, from expensive appliances to underwear. Everything you need at any given moment — a scratch pad, a pen, Kleenex, a nail clipper, all the sundries of a life — must be obtained again. Then there are the things you can never get back at any price: family photos, important documents, identification, diplomas, cherished recordings and home movies — all gone. The pain of losing such things will recede, but it will never completely go away. The need for mental health services will be immense. In the days after Hurricane Katrina, people who came through the storm feeling OK were suddenly confronted with emotions they hadn’t had time to process. We got used to seeing strangers break down at the market or the post office, and we learned when to offer a hand and when to step back and show them respect. Weeks, months and years later, our suicide and depression rates soared. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie would be wise to begin planning now for more mental health services,

because the increased need will arrive soon and remain for years. Many whose homes and automobiles were destroyed by Sandy didn’t have flood insurance. For those who had insurance, we can only counsel patience when it comes to dealing with adjusters, who can deny coverage for what seems the most arbitrary and frustrating of reasons. And beware: there are people who specialize in re-victimizing the victims of tragedy. Be careful when

Those of us on the Gulf Coast know and understand your pain. dealing with contractors. Lots of New Orleanians learned this the hard way. Being hit by tragedy doesn’t necessarily mean the tax man will give you a break. This year, more than ever, it’s vital to check with an accountant who knows the ins and outs of personal and business casualty losses. Forewarned is forearmed; get a

copy of IRS Publication 547, “Casualties, Disasters and Thefts.” Above all, be aware that the wave of national sympathy will ebb almost as quickly as it flowed; the TV cameras will leave long before you are whole again. New Orleans and the Gulf Coast got used to hearing about “Katrina fatigue” while we were still struggling to get back on our feet. When that happens after Hurricane Sandy, you’ll need to take care of each other — but know that those of us on the Gulf Coast know and understand your pain. We won’t forget you. After Hurricane Katrina, New York held “From the Big Apple to the Big Easy” concerts at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall to help Gulf Coast recovery. Now New Orleans is returning the favor. The city is holding a benefit concert Nov. 20 at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. The lineup was still being put together at press time, but it promises to be a star-studded evening. Tickets for “NOLA: Pay It Forward” are $52 and are available at and the Mahalia Jackson Theater box office. We urge those who can to pay it forward to our friends in the Northeast.

I remember a spectacular fireworks display on the river during the World’s Fair in 1984 that may have come from Japan. Works of art were created as they exploded! Choreographed pyrotechnics displayed a flower stem, then leaves and finally a blossom atop it. Fireworks adorned the skies almost every night for the four months of the Fair, but this was a special treat. Can you tell me more about this? “Captain” Lee Mullikin Dear Captain Lee, Wasn’t that amazing? This one-off event stopped traffic on Sunday, June 3, 1984. The display, which lasted 70 minutes, was a jaw-dropping presentation of pyrotechnics. It was not like the usual American firework displays, which gradually build to a finale. This exhibit consisted of separate scenes as more than 50 tableaus were shot from a 290-foot long barge from mortar tubes 6 to 10 inches in diameter. Folks gathered for hours in front of the Japanese Pavilion and along the riverfront; it was estimated that between 60,000 to 70,000 people saw the show. We were reminded of Canal Street on Mardi Gras, with spectators 100 to 200 feet deep. Traffic on the Mississippi River Bridge closed and the gondola stopped running while the Kase Company of Nagaoka, Japan fired 4,000 electronically ignited shells into the air and gave us a show not to be forgotten. But for the day-to-day fireworks displays, there were other companies contracted, the first of which was Pyro Spectaculars. Working for the company were the husband-and-wife team of Jim and Linda Burton of Southern California. The Burtons put in six hours each day assembling a show that lasted just nine minutes each night. The fireworks were located on a barge docked downriver from the fair. About 9 p.m. each night, a tugboat pulled the fireworks-laden barge to the fair site where residents oohed and aahed at the brilliant show set to music. In September, another firm took over the finale for each day — Ruggieri, one of the oldest fireworks manufacturers in the world. It has a list of historical celebra-

The company’s first big job was for King Louis XV of France, who hired the Ruggieri brothers for the wedding celebration of his daughter’s marriage to the son of King Philip V of Spain. King Louis was so impressed that he created a new position of King’s Pyrotechnicist and gave the job to Petronio Ruggieri. The company that bears the Ruggieri name was the first to create colored fireworks. And when we saw their beautiful displays in 1984, they were specializing in “pyromelody,” the marriage of fireworks with music with split-second timing. Unlike the typical American fireworks displays which go up high and make a lot of noise, the Ruggieri fireworks were more artful, consisting of a series of tableaus keyed to music. No matter which company staged the displays, fairgoers loved the thrilling end to each day.

New Orleans The man who Saints next year? inspired fans to wear “Free Payton” shirts should pay back the loyalty shown by Benson, the fans and the city. The mere thought that Payton likely will get a raise out of this — and possibly a big raise — is a travesty. It shouldn’t have come to this. If the team stopped whatever it was they were doing back when the NFL first warned them about it, there wouldn’t have been a bounty investigation. The loss of Payton isn’t just the loss of a coach. His philosophy is the entire base of how the organization operates. “Of course there’s a scare when immediately it comes out and says Sean Payton’s a free agent and he has the ability to go wherever he wants. It seems like that story was blown out of proportion,” Saints quarterback Drew Brees said last Wednesday. “My focus is on our team and winning, and I think that’s what Sean would want us to do.” This whole situation leaves a bad taste in my mouth. If a clause is the reason a contract doesn’t exist, fix it. If it’s something more than that, say so. So many questions with so few answers — but one question troubles me the most: Who is Sean Payton, really? We’re about to find out.

n Nov. 4, New Orleans Saints fans woke up to the headline “NFL voids Saints’ Payton contract extension.” The story said Saints coach Sean Payton would be a free agent at the end of the season. Huh? Talk about coming out of nowhere. How did this happen? Andrew Brandt, former Green Bay Packers vice president and National Football League player agent, wrote that the NFL voided the contract extension due to a clause that says Payton could become a free agent if general manager Mickey Loomis were to exit either voluntarily or involuntarily by a suspension or firing. Way more questions than answers exist. How does it take 14 months — from September 2011 to November 2012 — to figure out a contract isn’t valid? Why is that clause in there? Did Loomis and Payton suspect trouble could be on the horizon? Remember: the NFL began its bounty investigation in 2010. Did Loomis put that in as a favor to Payton because he thought that if the bounty situation came to light, it could end his time in New Orleans? “I absolutely expect Sean to be our coach next year and going forward,” Loomis told The Times-Picayune’s Mike Triplett last week. “These contract issues will be resolved.” That’s great. But why haven’t they already been resolved? If a deal was already agreed upon, why not take out the clause or reword it to the NFL’s approval? Throw in Payton’s affinity for Dallas (and his home there) and it’s easy to see why some in the fan base were in all-out panic. It’s long been speculated around the league that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would love to have Payton call Cowboys Stadium home. And with Dallas struggling this season ... Bottom line is that for Sean Payton to coach the Saints next season, he and the team will have to agree on a new deal or the NFL could choose to “toll” him for a season — meaning Payton would have to coach the final year of his old contract prior to signing the extension. The difference that Payton makes on the Saints is clear. Without question, he’ll be highly sought after, but the Cowboys and the Saints are really the only natural homes for him. So it could be a bidding war for his services.

The artists behind Shreveport’s Oscar-winning Moonbot Studios and DreamWorks’ Rise of the Guardians.


hen William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg accepted the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film last February, Joyce offered a modest description of their enterprise. “Look, we’re just like these swamp rats from Louisiana,” Joyce said, grinning from ear to ear and clutching the trophy. “This is incredibly grand. We love the movies. We love the movies more than anything.” They looked like father and son: the diminutive Joyce with his short gray hair and thick-rimmed glasses, and the much younger Oldenburg with his tousled hair and one arm around Joyce’s shoulder. “It’s been a part of our DNA ever since we were children,” Oldenburg said. “It’s made us storytellers.” They had created the 15-minute film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore as a calling card for their Shreveport-based startup, Moonbot Studios. The film tells the story of a booklover named Morris Lessmore, who loses his books in Hurricane Katrina and is swept away to a new land.

Though their company was new (founded in 2009), the two had plenty of industry experience and a very focused plan. Together with Moonbot co-founder Lampton Enochs, they wanted to make a mark fast. “Most animation companies start up and then get jobs,” Joyce says. “They try for years and years to get enough time and money to make a short film. We said, ‘Let’s reverse that.’ Let’s just start out with a short film that we know will lose money but will establish who we are and what we are able to do and maybe we’ll get some notice for that. So we had our fingers crossed. Maybe we’ll get nominated for an Oscar or at least get notice at some film festivals. “You can’t just say we’re going to have an animation studio in Louisiana, in the 107th largest city in the country and have them believe you. You have to do something.” The Academy Award helped put Moonbot on the map. But besides winning the Oscar, the story was spun off as an app, which App Magazine named its 2011 App of the Year, and finally a book — ironic, given Joyce’s first

career focus was picture book publishing. The book spent 11 weeks at No. 1 on The New York Times’ children’s best sellers list. He’s authored Dinosaur Bob and His Adventures with the Family Lazardo and George Shrinks among many other popular children’s books. Many of them have been made into movies or TV series, and next week DreamWorks releases the holiday film Rise of the Guardians, which is based on Joyce’s stories. Many of Joyce’s projects have done very well with major studios. He created characters for Toy Story and A Bug’s Life, Pixar’s first big animated films. His Rolie Polie Olie book series became an Emmy-winning Disney Channel series. His book A Day With Wilbur Robinson became the Disney film Meet the Robinsons. His book The Leaf Men is the basis for 20th Century Fox’s 2013 release Epic, due in spring 2013. He’s also illustrated 10 covers for The New Yorker, and was named the 2008 Louisiana Author of the Year by a Louisiana State Library program to recognize contemporary writers. “Guardians, next to Toy Story, is the movie I am most pleased with that I’ve worked on,” Joyce says. “It’s what I envisioned. It’s what I hoped it would be: It is successful grand entertainment.” Moonbot’s name does not appear in the credits for Guardians because the project predates the startup by many years. It’s based on a series of books initiated by Joyce more than 15 years ago and a short film, Joyce and Oldenburg’s original demo project, shot in New Orleans in 1998. Oldenburg’s former company, Reel FX, is credited with producing the short film. Morris Lessmore was finished quickly by moviemaking standards and gained recognition even faster. From its relative geographic isolation from the industry, Moonbot has shown the agility of what an openminded startup can do. Apple’s iPad was introduced to the world while they were filming Morris Lessmore, and Moonbot quickly created an app because Joyce and Oldenburg saw the device’s potential for telling a story in a new way. As they prepare for the regional premiere of Guardians in Shreveport at The Strand Theatre, Moonbot designers are busy working on new apps, movies, books and more. Moonbot occupies much of the bottom floor of a lone modern building tucked away near a cluster of hospitals

in central Shreveport. A team of animators works on movies and games in an open area, workstations littered with toy figures and the walls covered with poster-sized illustrations. Oldenburg and Joyce have offices on opposite sides of the main hall. Joyce’s is a dimly lit cave in the center. He works at a slanted illustrator’s desk; sketches cover his walls. Oldenburg has a sunny office, and its windowsill is covered with Star Wars action figures and some Toy Story characters. Elsewhere a Fraggle Rock muppet is perched on a lamp and his old Super 8 camera sits on a shelf. Most of the company’s roughly 45 employees are 25 or younger. Or as Oldenburg puts it, many probably remember a film like Toy Story as their first exciting movie. He remembers Tron. Many of the artists were recruited from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Fla., Oldenburg’s alma mater (and he sits on its board of trustees). Moonbot has a unique creative environment. Every week, everyone in the company watches film and animation produced that week, and everyone is welcome to critique and comment. The studio also has “Sketch Tuesday,” in which everyone is welcome to contribute drawings to a Moonbot blog post. Sometimes they are new sketches along a chosen theme, sometimes illustrators pull things out of old sketchbooks or files. There are many new innovative projects, all tracked on a whiteboard in Enochs’ office. Recent projects have included the IMAG-N-O-TRON, another iPad app to enhance book experiences. It’s used as a companion to a book, recognizing images and pages to activate the app’s features. When the reader points the IMAG-N-O-TRON at the Lessmore page featuring the library, it allows the viewer to do a 360-degree pan around the library. The iPad screen can be pointed at different books, which then whisper to the IMAG-N-OTRON holder. Oldenburg jokes that it is not a threat to publishing “We said to (a meeting of) librarians (at a presentation), ‘It’s OK. You still have to have a book.’”

The Numberlys is another story app that features creatures living in a gray numbers-based world modeled on the classic Fritz Lang silent film Metropolis. The Numberly creatures use numbers to invent an alphabet, and with that comes words and then color. They go from eating gray and gloppy “00259” to picking up a rainbow of jellybeans raining down from the sky. A film and book version are planned. Forthcoming projects include a Kickstarter campain in November to fund a new multiplatform project based on the Jewish folk tale of the Golem. Moonbot books will be released on a special Simon & Schuster imprint. One team of programmers and designers is working on a game for Sony PlayStation called Diggs Nightcrawler. Using a new controller, which is shaped like a book with turning pages, players can help a bookworm (who looks like a caterpillar) detective named Diggs solve a mystery in a noirish cartoonscape. Diggs tries to solve the mystery of how Humpty Dumpty fell off his wall. It’s not the first time Humpty Dumpty has been a character in a Moonbot story. When Morris Lessmore arrives at the library, a book featuring Humpty Dumpty reaches out to him. The two-dimensional Humpty encourages him to explore books again. Why Humpty Dumpty? “I like him,” Joyce says, sitting in his office. “He breaks, and they always say they can’t put him back together again. And that always bothered me. I wanted to do a story in which everything breaks and gets put back together again.” PAGE 20

Many Hollywood studios tried to buy Rise of the Guardians. But the story wasn’t generated for a pitch meeting. Or even originally a book. It was hatched years ago for an audience of one. Joyce’s 6-year-old daughter Mary Katherine asked him if Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy all knew each other. Joyce quickly responded, “Yes.” But it wasn’t that simple. “Once we started talking about this, I thought, ‘God, this is really rich stuff,’” Joyce says. “The questions didn’t stop there. I had opened Pandora’s box. There were many, many questions. I always resented when I was a kid and I asked my parents how [Santa Claus] did all this in a night and they said, ‘Well, he just does.’ And that doesn’t tell me anything. “Now I am in the same position, I want to do things differently than my parents. Since I am a storyteller, I will engage here. I want to give (his daughter and son) a mythology that is very interesting. And then I realized this is really fun. I was really enjoying it. It was flowing out of me. I was channeling all the myths that I loved. Everything that I had ever seen that I liked was becoming this gumbo of new mythology. There was a little bit of Pandora, a little bit of the Flying Dutchman, a little bit of Greek mythology, of Harvey the Rabbit. Hindu myths that I had read. Native American myths. Celtic myths. They blended together. … I wanted to actually do this as books, as something. It didn’t take long after that initial yes.” Joyce drew and filled in the back stories on Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman and the Tooth Fairy. He imagined Santa as a figure with a dark past. His Santa looked like a Russian Cossack, a former thief with a wild side, covered in Russian prison tattoos.


IMAG-N-O-TRON makes the Morris Lessmore story come alive by adding movement, sound and features like 360-degree pans extending beyond the pages of the book.

In the DreamWorks version, Santa is tattooed: The words “Naughty” and “Nice” are inked on his thick forearms, like the words “LOVE” and “HATE” are tattooed on the fingers of the jailhouse preacher played by Robert Mitchum in Charles Laughton’s The Night of the Hunter. The world of Guardians and the scope of the project grew. Joyce envisioned 13 picture books to tell various parts of the tale (he’s completed five), and he thought there should be a movie, but not a direct adaptation of the books. The film, set in the present, takes place 200 years after the time in which the books are set. Oldenburg grew up in the suburbs of Fort Worth, Texas. He fell in love with movies at a young age. “I walked out of Raiders of the Lost Ark knowing what I wanted to do with my life,” he says. “That weekend, my dad and I went out and bought a Super 8 camera. I started making movies in the fourth grade, cutting them there at the kitchen table.” His mother noticed his talents and signed him up for art lessons. He was a founder of Reel FX Creative Studios, a Dallas company that did work for Disney, Pixar, Blue Sky Studios and Troublemaker Studios. In 1997, Joyce released The World of William Joyce Scrapbook and Oldenburg bought a copy. Oldenburg particularly liked the last page, which included drawings of characters for a book Joyce was then working on, The Man in the Moon. To get Joyce’s attention, Oldenburg crafted and mailed him surprise boxes, with springs and moving parts that launched pop-ups and created small effects.

Soon, they talked on the phone, and Oldenburg said he wanted to make a movie with Joyce. Joyce was very busy, often traveling to either New York or Los Angeles for book and film projects, but he decided to go to Dallas. “My wife asked me, ‘Why are you doing this?” Joyce says, intoning an implication of futility. “I had so much going on. But I said, ‘I just have a hunch.’” It didn’t seem so promising at first. “They didn’t even know how to tell me how to get to their offices,” Joyce says. “They were like, ‘It’s next to the Hooters downtown. If you can find the Hooters, we’re right next door.’ So I finally find it and Brandon comes out, and he looks like he’s 11 years old. He looks like he’s 15 now. This is 1998. I am like, ‘Oh, my God, they’re children.’ I went through [Reel FX’s] offices, and I don’t think any of these guys shave. Do their parents drop them off? Is this some afterschool program?” But he was impressed with their work. “They had great instincts, great technological ability,” Joyce says. “They were finding cheap ways to do complicated things. … If you go into any animation house, you get an instant read on what the place is like. If a place is rocking, there’s a happy sort of energy in the air. Pixar had that. It’s rare. When I went into Reel FX it was there. It felt like when I had walked into Blue Sky for the first time. It felt like when I walked into Pixar for the first time.” Joyce and Oldenburg decided to make a short film together. Actually, it was just a sequence of scenes setting up The Man in the Moon story, a very early installment/prequel to Rise of the Guardians. In late fall 1998, they spent a week filming in New Orleans because Morrison Productions Studio (located in the former Coliseum Theater in the Lower Garden District) had a computer-controlled boom arm that would allow them to shoot their scenes and create desired effects, incorporating miniatures and animation. The four-minute film later became crucial to their deal with DreamWorks, but it also helped forge the creative bond between Joyce and Oldenburg. “It was the first time I directed anything. I had been wanting to direct,” Joyce says. “We had so much freedom. We had so much fun. They did such beautiful work. … I was supposed to be there for one day. I didn’t bring a suitcase. Every day they had a flight for me [back to Shreveport]. And every day I had Chuck, the producer, call my wife and say it’s not going to be today. … We had the best time. We never slept and we never stopped. We finished all that we had the money to do.” Oldenburg also was elated. “In our hearts, the two of us knew that if we could make a short film, it would be embraced by the world,” he says. “We had to wait over a decade to try that again. It wasn’t like we just formed a company overnight.” Many studios were interested in Rise of the Guardians and Joyce had pitched it to several of the larger ones. None of them was interested in the books. “I had become way emotionally attached to the whole thing,” Joyce says. “I felt this was the best thing I had done. I felt it was the story I was put on PAGE 22

Earth to do. I cannot hand it over to Hollywood — even with all the assurances and even with being a producer or director. … “At first I was going to direct it. They all said no. “They all offered tons of money. I was offered so many Faustian bargains, I felt like my soul was up for purchase — insane sums of money were offered, and I had to go, ‘No. These are the conditions of which I will do this. Take it or leave it.’ And they’d say, ‘No, but here’s a shitload more money.’” He stood firm because he was very interested in the film’s audience, and cautious about the way money works. “These characters stay vivid and powerful in kids’ imagination,” he says. “More than if they are handing out coupons or selling products on TV. The way you see them in your head as a kid is pretty magnificent. [The Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy] do all these things in one night. They judge you. There’s a lot more mythic power to them as a child than when you are a grownup. We wanted to honor that. “You shouldn’t let large fast-food chains define who Santa Claus is, OK.” When DreamWorks heard his plan and saw the film Joyce and Oldenburg made, its team was interested. “The head of the studio, Jeffrey Katzenberg, said, ‘I like this idea. I like your take on it. I like that you want Santa Claus and the Guardians to be grand heroes. I like it epic,’” Joyce says. They inked a deal in early 2007, and Reel FX, which had been using the film as one of its calling card demos, pulled the film off the Internet as part of the deal with DreamWorks.

Joyce had been talking about his desire to stay in Shreveport to Enochs, who worked in film production. Immediately following Hurricane Katrina, many film production companies had shifted operations to Shreveport. Enochs was working on the FX miniseries Thief, which relocated to north Louisiana in order to retain film tax credit benefits. He met Joyce at a cocktail party, and later they started talking about creating a film and animation studio. Joyce’s first priority was to bring Oldenburg on board. The name Moonbot refers to characters in the film Joyce and Oldenburg had made in New Orleans. The three of them agreed to create a short film to put out as a calling card. Years earlier, Joyce had flown to New York to meet with William Morris, who had been a mentor to him. On the plane, he sketched out a story about a man who loves books. Nothing came of it for a while, and the framed piece of paper, with sketches and notes, resides in Oldenburg’s Moonbot office. By the time they took it off the shelf, it had been infused with a new vision. Morris Lessmore became not just someone who loves books, but someone who loses his books and rediscovers their power. It was one of the things Joyce saw in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Many Shreveport facilities were turned into shelters after the levee failures. Joyce worked with a group that created “Faces of Katrina,” in which photographers and writers went to shelters to interview the displaced and dispossessed. Shreveport’s Hirsch Memorial Coliseum temporarily housed thousands of people in a huge open space crowded with rows of cots. That’s where he noticed the effect of another relief effort: RIF and First Book’s push to get millions of books in the hands of kids who were without schools. “These shelters were always bustling with noise,” Joyce says. “But there would be a kid (with) book in hand, and it was like it made this protective dome around them. They were lost in that book. All this anxiety of what they were going through, all the loss of privacy

and displacement vanished, and they were lost in the world of those pages and that was a stunningly powerful thing.” Then Joyce visited New Orleans, and among the debris he saw more books: books caked with mud, loose pages waterlogged, blurred and unreadable, all lying in drifts and piles and where the floodwaters left them. When he and Oldenburg started working on their film, they built a scale model of a French Quarter block. In the opening scene, Lessmore sits on his second-floor balcony reading, surrounded by stacks of books. Then a wind blows, and as it gets stronger, it blows letters off the pages. Then it carries away whole books. A TV flies by, and on it one can see the spinning hurricane-tracking icon on a weathercaster’s map. Then a man on a bicycle flies by and it looks like the tornado scene from The Wizard of Oz, but in reverse, because in the hurricane’s wake, Lessmore’s world goes gray. When Lessmore eventually finds refuge, it’s in a library. He goes inside and finds it full of flying books. There also are damaged books, and he sets about repairing them one page at a time. When Moonbot was created, it didn’t have many animators on staff at first. Joyce and Oldenburg started filming miniatures while they hired staff who could do animation work. While they were working on the film, Apple introduced the iPad. Joyce and Oldenburg pounced on the idea of an app for the story. They didn’t have programmers, and Enochs reached out to the Louisiana

Louisiana from Economic Development office and was connected with programmers in Shreveport. Their app made the Lessmore story into an e-book experience with interactive elements. The app was named App of the Year before they won the Oscar. “It was another way to tell a story,” Joyce says. “This has things a book can’t do; things a movie can’t do. You can’t interact with a movie. You can’t move around what’s on a page. We wanted to see what the thing was capable of. It’s stupid to think of the app experience for a book as putting a book on an app. It’s got all this stuff, so you use this stuff. “I showed it to Maurice Sendak, and he said ‘I like it. It’s not a book.’ And I said, ‘Well, I didn’t say it’s a book.’ Things we do for apps are not books. They’re stories. Story apps. The idea of flipping the pages on an app is a total waste of what it could do.” The multimedia life of Lessmore is how many projects develop at Moonbot. They are slated to be issued as books, films, apps or whatever medium suits the creative team, and in whatever order makes sense. “The purpose of Moonbot is to tell really good stories on multiple platforms,” Enochs says. “Find a great story and find what’s the coolest way to tell it.” Technology has given Moonbot more control of its work. “It’s democratization,” Oldenburg says. “We have control. We can push a button and release our story without having to go to a studio or a publisher.” Joyce believes that reacting to changing technology is necessary and positive. “Everything’s changing,” he says. “All the paradigms are falling apart right before our eyes. We are just trying to see which ship is going to stay afloat and be able to tell a story in a way that we think is compelling. I don’t think publishing is going to die. I don’t think the book is going to die. All of these things are going to become a different way to experience a story.”

A wide array of fruits and vegetables is always available, including carrots, apples, strawberries, bananas, mangoes, peaches, oranges, blueberries, pears, beets, cucumbers, ginger, celery, kale and spinach. Jeanea’s favorite customers are the ones who initially scrunch up their faces when she suggests they try a green drink or veggie-smoothie — only to express surprise at how refreshing and delicious these beverages are: “I always kid that once you are hooked — and you will be — you’ll be coming back in saying, ‘Gimme d’Juice!’”

oming home from vacation a couple years ago, Jeanea Bandi and her husband Stephen were brainstorming on how to grow their home businesses: JCB Creations, her cookies and cakes, and Big Easy Woodwork, his reclaimed wood furniture. They decided to open Patchworks Market, a space where they’d not only sell their own products but also offer studios to artists Stephen met through art markets. “We named it Patchworks Market because it was a patchwork of different concepts under one roof,” Jeanea says. In November 2011, Jeanea opened d’Juice (8237 Oak St., 504-324-9933; in Patchworks Market. “Our original plan for Patchworks did not have a fresh juice and smoothie component,” Jeanea says. But after leaving a job at a new-to-New Orleans smoothie chain, she decided she wanted to create a local, fresh smoothie alternative. D’Juice specializes in wholefruit smoothies, with no sugars or syrups added, and fresh, made-to-order juices. Customers are encouraged to create their own blends. The impetus behind the business came from being a mom, Jeanea says. “I have a 10-year-old son who, like most kids that age, does not like vegetables but loves smoothies. I’m always looking for healthy options for my family. So when I find one, I like to provide it to others.” The atmosphere at Patchworks is funky, warm and inviting, with local artwork for sale on the walls, comfy chairs and plenty of electrical outlets for those with laptops. “We find that once

an imaginative exploration of po-boys

High-end po-boys from a bar’s back room. By Ian McNulty


n Sunday, the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival (see Fork + Center, right column) puts on a one-day, seven-block showcase testing the outer limits of the city’s famous sandwich, with restaurants offering new and classic versions. In the back of a French Quarter pub, Killer Poboys is conducting advanced experiments in the same field day in and day out. Some genre standards turn up here, so the menu includes sausage patties, fat shrimp and tender beef in gravy that soaks many napkins. But some practices are discarded. I’ve never spotted shredded iceberg, for instance, and tomatoes have appeared only in early summer when the local Creole variety was too beautiful to ignore. Cam Boudreaux and April Bellow started Killer Poboys last spring in the galley kitchen of the Erin Rose bar. Both worked in fine dining before tackling the po-boy, and they aren’t the first to go this route. Ben Wicks’ creations at Mahony’s PoBoy Shop and the lunch menu at Boucherie are two prominent examples. Killer Po-boys stands out by grounding itself in po-boy tenets and imaginatively building on them. The sausage is made from lamb seasoned with a shelf’s worth of Moroccan spices, griddled into crisp patties and dressed with sumac-scented carrots and tzatziki sauce turned green by heavy use of herbs. Sauteed shrimp are surrounded by pickled vegetables, in the manner of banh mi, and all the po-boys are assembled on light, crackling-crisp banh mi bread. The beef, which is grass-fed product from Two Run Farm, is laced with horseradish aioli and crammed so gener-


ously into its loaf that the bread, wetted by its juices, conforms to it like a wrapper. There always is a vegan po-boy with red bean puree, garlicky chimichurri and Hollygrove vegetables. The menu is short, though the specials are usually exotic — shrimp, alligator and pork rolled together in meatballs under smoky tomato sauce and Manchego one week, pork belly with Brussels sprouts and pumpkin seed pesto the next. Irish whiskey makes it into the grilled cheese but does not make it taste like much more than plain old grilled cheese. The “dark and stormy pork,” braised with rum, was the only po-boy I didn’t love, though someone with more of a taste for sweet barbecue might appreciate it. Killer Poboys gets all types. The nuisances of making destination-worthy food in a bar apply: patrons must be at least 21 to enter, seating is scant and you must tolerate cigarette smoke. But Killer Po-boys has developed a loyal following, including staff from nearby restaurants visiting in uniform post-shift and businesswomen in heels picking up lunch orders and maybe succumbing to a midday cider while they wait. It all seems proof that if you build a better po-boy, the world — or at least dedicated New Orleans foodies — will beat a path to your door. Cam Boudreaux will appear on the Nov. 20 broadcast of the Food Network’s cooking competition show Chopped.

Before he and his partners opened The Three Muses (536 Frenchmen St., 504352-4801; on Frenchmen Street, chef Dan Esses made his name cooking at several local finedining restaurants. But it was the food of New York City that informed his tastes and grounded his perspective on cuisine. In the wake of damage done by Hurricane Sandy, the Bronx native is paying tribute to his hometown with a special menu The Three Muses will serve each Thursday in November (excluding Thanksgiving, when the restaurant is closed). It features six dishes and New York-themed cocktails, and the Three Muses has pledged all proceeds from these items to City Harvest (, a nonprofit hungerrelief group in New York that is feeding storm victims. Esses says the contribution is possible because local suppliers agreed to donate ingredients. The benefit menu is a mix of iconic New York dishes. “This menu is basically my youth,” Esses says of his selections. His “Arthur Ave. chicken Alfredo” is a tribute to the main drag in the Bronx’s Little Italy, where Esses said his family dined often. “Mott Street lemon chicken page 37

The Casablanca Valley, located 60 miles northwest of Santiago, Chile, is one of the country’s major wine producing regions. Twenty miles from the Pacific Ocean, the area enjoys a coastal climate, warmed by the sun and cooled by evening breezes. After harvest, the grapes were fermented at low temperatures and aged 10 months in French oak casks. In the glass, it offers aromas of raspberry, cranberry, strawberry and cedar notes. On the palate, taste red cherries, plum, a pleasant earthiness and undertones of herbs and spice. For best results, open it an hour before serving. Drink it with tuna, salmon, pork chops, veal and roasted fowl. Buy it at: Swirl Wine Market and Whole Foods Market in Metairie. Drink it at: Monkey Hill Bar.

Milk Bar multiplies

OWNEr, GOUrMET BUTCHEr BLOCK Holiday season signals a busy time for Gourmet Butcher Block (2144 Belle Chasse Hwy., Gretna, 504-392-5700;, a Cajun-style butcher shop known for its turduckens. Many people are now familiar with this creation — a duck stuffed in a chicken stuffed in a turkey, all deboned and layered with dressing. But that wasn’t the case when Mistich and his wife Leah opened their first Gourmet Butcher Block in 1993. Leah hails from Maurice, La., near Lafayette, where her family operates Herbert’s Specialty Meats, a butcher shop known for its turducken. That’s where Glenn learned the tricks of the trade he plies today in Gretna. : What does it take to make a good turducken? Mistich: We start making them in September and vacuum seal and freeze them, otherwise we could never keep up with demand. You have to cook the dressing, make the sausage for it, everything is from scratch. Then you have to cut everything a certain way and layer it all a certain way and then sew it all back up a certain way. It’s fun, actually, but you have to be really consistent and pay attention. You don’t want to ruin someone’s holiday meal by doing it wrong. : John Madden famously featured your turducken during his NFL broadcasts at the holidays. How did that come about? M: It almost didn’t happen. Madden heard about the turducken through the guys at WWL (radio) when he was in town for a (New Orleans) Saints game and he asked to get one for the press box. We brought it, but at first the Superdome people didn’t want us to bring in outside food. But we got it in. It took off from there, and he always got one every year after that. He still orders two to this day, even though he’s retired now. : I understand you make something now called the fowl de cochon. What on earth is this? M: The fowl de cochon is a deboned pig stuffed with deboned turkey, stuffed with a deboned chicken, stuffed with a deboned duck with dressing all around it. It’s pretty big, it’ll feed 50 people, but we still sell about 30 a month. Especially around big football games. We sold a lot for the LSU-Alabama game. — IAN MCNULTY

second Milk Bar (710 S. Carrollton Ave., 504-309-3310) within walking distance of Loyola and Tulane’s campuses. “University kids were half our business,” says Kevin Phayer, the British native who runs the Milk Bar with his Australian-born wife Inta Phayer. “We decided to go closer to the customers who are coming to us and maybe make it easier for our customers from the hospital to get a quick lunch.” The Phayers first opened the Milk Bar in the 1990s at a spot near Charity Hospital. They sold the business and moved to Australia, but when a yen for the New Orleans lifestyle brought them back a few years later they reopened the Milk Bar in the same spot. That same month, floodwaters from Hurricane Katrina wrecked it, but they later resurrected the place on Delachaise Street. Both shops serve the same menu, which entails a different soup daily, a few salads and an original and idiosyncratic approach to sandwiches, which are made on oversized round loaves of ciabatta. One called the “wolf me down” combines roasted lamb, hummus and spinach and the “speared pig” includes asparagus,

ham and hollandaise. You can get roasted chicken with sour cream, mozzarella and a chunky, bright-red, spicy-sweet sauce called Thai chili that is a staple of Australian gastropub grub. The Milk Bar serves a basic breakfast menu of bagels and croissant sandwiches, plus milkshakes, smoothies and coffee drinks. The new Milk Bar is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The original location keeps the same hours Monday to Friday.

In the way a good challenge can amplify a competitor’s character, the approach planned by the restaurants and vendors participating in the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival is to do what they do best and put it all on a loaf of French bread. At the festival, attendees can try a Greek eggplant salad po-boy from Mondo, where chef Susan Spicer’s affinity for Mediterranean cuisine is always in evidence. The barbecue-centric Fat Hen Grocery’s entry is the “Big Texan po-boy,” which is essentially a barbecue plate of brisket, smoked sausage and coleslaw turned into a sandwich. The upscale seafood destination GW Fins serves its fried lobster po-boy with remoulade, a sensation that has previously attracted the longest lines and the most fanatic response at the event. The festival takes place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18, and there are more than 40 vendors representing restaurants and caterers from around town and another dozen representing businesses along Oak Street’s commercial corridor. This latter category ranges from the wine bar Oak and the chef-led burger spot Cowbell. The Japanese-inspired poboys from Ninja are always a standout. Some new eye-catchers this year include a seafood stuffed artichoke po-boy from Seither’s Seafood in Harahan and Palace Cafe’s “poutine-boy,” combining the old-school French fry po-boy with famously messy Quebecois-style gravy cheese fries. Festival admission is free. VIP wristbands are available for $100 each, which promises a parking spot, access to a VIP area with open bar, snacks and restrooms, and the option to use (presumably shorter) VIP lines at participating vendors.

The Next Stage The alternative theater festival attracts performing artists to New Orleans. By Will Coviello


ville Transitory Theatre company for its Fringe show. This year, Southern Rep is producing a new play, Steve Yockey’s Wolves, at a Fringe venue. Yockey wrote the piece when he visited Southern Rep for the premiere of his unconventional drama Afterlife: A Ghost Story. Matthew Hancock is a writer/director who moved to New Orleans after bringing a show to Fringe last year. His then Brooklyn-based company presented a spaghetti Western genre spoof called My Aim Is True at the Mudlark Public Theatre. “Almost immediately after the show, I decided I was going to move here,” Hancock says. He arrived just in time for Hurricane Isaac. This year, several of the same actors are making the trip to the Fringe to be in his new show Helpless Doorknobs, a horror film genre spoof. It’s based on a deck of cards with cryptic messages and illustrations created by Edward Gorey. “We’ve had a few rehearsals on Skype,” Hancock says. One of the performers in both plays is enrolled in graduate school at Tulane University, so the company straddles the divide. But Hancock is here to stay. After the Fringe, he will begin work on new local productions.

The Collector (9 p.m. Wed., 5 p.m. Fri., 9 p.m. Sat., 11 p.m. Sun.; The Old Firehouse, 718 Mandeville St.) San Diego’s Animal Cracker Conspiracy presents The Collector, a tale about a debt collector who must do the bidding of a heartless overseer and reconsiders the cost to his spirit. The story is told with puppets, toy theater and stop-motion film. (9 p.m. Thu.-Fri., 5 p.m. Sat., 7 p.m. Sun.; Mardi Gras Zone — warehouse, Architect Street at Port Street)

eattle circus arts and theater performer Elizabeth Rose applied to the 2011 New Orleans Fringe Festival incidentally. After the debut of her threewoman aerial dance piece Domestic Variations, she was browsing theater news websites and saw a posting for Fringe applicants. “I thought, ‘Hey, this will be a great excuse to put together a highlight reel of the show’ — because the deadline was coming,” Rose says. She finished the video and sent it with an application. The piece was accepted, and then Rose had to face some other obstacles. She had no money to bring performers or equipment to New Orleans, and the other two performers couldn’t go, so she had to recast the show. Still, she brought the piece to New Orleans and it was one of the highlights of the festival. This year, she’s bringing a new show, and in June, she’ll have even more to cart to New Orleans. She’s moving here with her family. “It wasn’t just the festival, it was the climate,” she says by phone from her Seattle studio. “The festival was a product of a larger community. When I realized that, I thought, “Oh wow, this is incredible. … [New Orleans] is fostering trailblazers.’” The New Orleans Fringe Festival marks its fifth anniversary this year. It has grown to nearly 70 shows, including many by out-of-town performers returning with new shows, and some by new New Orleanians. The festival has become a draw for theater people, and it’s helping the local theater community grow. “I get two or three messages or emails a week from people who want to come to New Orleans,” says Southern Rep artistic director Aimee Hayes. “They mention things like the theater scene, the Fringe and Southern Rep.” She gets inquiries from actors, directors, writers, costuming and tech people and others. Fringe festivals are marked by their freewheeling embrace of alternative theater and genre mashups of circus arts, dance, puppetry, comedy, music and whatever else can be combined into an hour-long show. But there are no hard and fast boundaries between Fringe and established theater companies like Southern Rep. Two years ago, Southern Rep entered a show in the Fringe as an independent venue. Last year, it lent its space to the St. Francis-

Portland, Ore.’s Wonderheads present an award-winning wordless comedy in full mask about an old woman who has no intentions of letting Death take her anytime soon. He comes calling and they battle it out. The troupe is known for its whimsical full masks.

New Mexico’s Button Wagon presents Trash Rabbit.

Helpless Doorknobs (9 p.m. Wed., 11 p.m. Thu., 7 p.m. Fri., 1 p.m. & 9 p.m. Sat., 1 & 7 p.m. Sun.; Mudlark Public Theatre, 1200 Port St.) Both a dark comedy and horror-genre spoof, Helpless Doorknobs is based on a deck of cards created by Edward Gorey. Each card had a cryptic illustration and a short and foreboding text, like “Alfred returned from the Arctic.” Alfred’s dreams are as haunted as his manor home full of shadows and lurking strangers. The creators of the show presented the hilarious spaghetti Western genre spoof My Aim Is True at last year’s festival.

Instant Misunderstanding (9 p.m. Wed., 7 p.m. Fri., 11 p.m. Sat., 9 p.m. Sun.; Den of Muses, Architect Street at Port Street.) Will Bowling and Christopher Kaminstein of Goat in the Road Productions have created and starred in a couple of hilarious comedies about people caught under the weight and grand arc of history and politics. In Whatever Just Happened, Didn’t Happen they sifted through thousands of pages of testimony about President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. In Our Man, they worked as radio announcers reimagining President Ronald Reagan’s imagined war heroics. They are back as odd brothers with the same name drinking tea and negotiating digital age technology and anxiety.

Liebe Love Amour!

Lovely Picnic (4 p.m. Thu.-Sun.; Clouet Gardens, 710 Clouet St.) Elizabeth Rose, creator of last year’s stunning aerial dance piece Domestic Variations, returns with a onewoman aerial show. In this whimsically costumed piece, she sets up a fancy picnic and sings as she prepares for a special rendezvous. She is accompanied by two musicians sitting in a tree above her in this outdoor piece.

Medea (9 p.m. Wed., 11 p.m. Fri., 7 p.m. Sat., 5 p.m. Sun.; Marigny Opera House, 725 St. Ferdinand St.) The company that presented an avant-garde version of Mephisto at the 2010 Fringe is back with Medea. Again, Natsumi Sugiyama performs solo, playing a handful of characters in an adaptation of Euripedes’ account of the woman spurned by the hero Jason. The surreal piece incorporates dance and martial arts movement, beautiful masks and a minimalist script in exploring the tale of vengeance.

Orleans homes and killed people with hatchets he found on the premises, suggesting he knew something about the residents and their belongings. No one really knew if it was the same killer or copy cats, and a local reporter fought to exonerate several men accused of the crime amid the haze of public panic. The Mudlark Puppeteers explore the true crime story with rod and shadow puppets, a live jazz band and music from the era.

The Rub (7 p.m. Thu., 5 p.m. Fri., 7 p.m. Sat., 11 p.m. Sun.; Den of Muses, Architect Street at Port Street) The Tremor Theatre group takes Hamlet as a template and instead of a prince wondering what has become of his kingdom recasts it as contemporary young people questioning what kind of corrupted world they are inheriting, referencing everything from the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street.

Trash Rabbit (7 p.m. Thu., 5 p.m. Fri., 9 p.m. Sat., 11 p.m. Sun., Marigny Opera House, 725 St. Ferdinand St.) The scruffy duo of New Mexico’s Button Wagon, contortionist/mime Ember Bria and object illusionist Matthew “Poki” McCorkle, return with Trash Rabbit, another physical theater piece exploring freedom, poverty, religion, garbage and guns. The piece presents some stark and bleak imagery and there is some nudity in the show.

The Mysterious Axeman’s Jazz (11 p.m. Wed., 9 p.m. Thu.-Fri., 3 p.m. & 11 p.m. Sat., 5 p.m. & 9 p.m. Sun.; Mudlark Public Theatre, 1200 Port St.) In the early days of jazz, a murderer sneaked into New

In the 2009 Fringe, Jenny Sargent’s Canarsie Suite featured a couple of questionably talented female performers striking out for the frontier of the old West in a vaudevillian comedy full of physical humor. Sargent is back with another rambunctious comedy. In Under the Skiff, two women wait in an immigration office in a strange country, hoping to get their papers approved, only to be thwarted by the great and small requirements of the bureaucracy.

Under the Skiff (9 p.m. Wed., 7 p.m. Thu., 11 p.m. Fri., 9 p.m. Sat., 7 p.m. Sun.; AllWays Lounge & Theatre, 2240 St. Claude Ave.)

The Vanities of the Poor (4:45 p.m. Thu.-Sun.; 1009 Harrison Ave.) In this remade Grimm’s tale, Death becomes a godparent to a poor man’s child and struggles as the child follows his own path. The musical features ’60s-era fashion and original music reflecting the same period, and although the work takes place outdoors, it’s set in a bar, and a rolling bar follows the production. It’s the work of Nina Nichols and Case Miller, who created the rock opera The Lead Paint Libretto, a wonderful show from the 2010 Fringe.

Wolves (7 p.m. Wed., 11 p.m. Fri., 9 p.m. Sat., 5 p.m. Sun., Den of Muses, Architect Street at Port Street) Playwright Steve Yockey premiered his full-length drama Afterlife: A Ghost Story at Southern Rep in fall 2010. It explored grief in an abstract and horror-genre like treatment. While in New Orleans, he wrote Wolves, a show combining fables, horror and comedy as someone brings home the Big Bad Wolf for a one night stand and the situation gets messy. Southern Rep presents the show at a Fringe venue.

(9 p.m. Wed., 5 p.m. Thu., 9 p.m. Sat., 7 p.m. Sun.; Cafe Istanbul, 2372 St. Claude Ave.) Stage and cinema meet in this love story. Brooklyn’s Anonymous Ensemble recounts the affairs of Tall Hilda, a diva looking for love. The piece incorporates interactive theater and filming using a green screen to create the effect of an old Hollywood silver screen blockbuster.

Roky Erickson

10 p.m. Sunday

As rock ’n’ roll myths go, the deep ending and One Eyed Jacks, glacial-paced reclamation of Roger Kynard 615 Toulouse St., Erickson stands alone: a pulpy nonfiction now 569-8361; www. as familiar to observers as Erickson’s 13th Floor Elevators were obscure, an American horror story of psychedelic rock and psychiatric wards, bad acid and worse treatments, the Texan Syd Barrett betrayed by everyone and then himself, pursued for decades by a Bigfooted bogeyman visible only in bathroom mirrors. The reality, of course, is scarier still. It’s safe to say nobody in popular music has known the trouble Roky Erickson has seen, which makes his gradual reemergence — first to his family and friends, as a functioning human being, and eventually to his cultish audience, as a productive and performing artist — all the more miraculous. Erickson’s influence with the Austin-based Elevators and his descent into madness is chronicled in Keven McAlester’s 2005 film You’re Gonna Miss Me; for the return trip, one need only be immersed in the 2010 release True Love Cast Out All Evil (Anti-). Produced by Will Sheff and backed by his band Okkervil River, the LP is an autobiographical book-on-tape: opening with the hushed, swelling “Devotional Number One,” a stark memento from Erickson’s time in a maximum security insane asylum; relating a dozen gravelly tales of redemptive, countrybred gospel; and bonus track “For You,” a sweet confection of a song whose G, E, C and D chords are the reconfigured DNA of a molecularly changed man. Nude Beach and The Dropout open. Tickets $25 advance purchase, $30 at the door. — NOAH BONAPARTE PAIS

The House I Live In



Gambit > > november 13 > 2012



the theatres at Canal Place 333 Canal St., third floor 504-581-5400

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, The House I Live In has a simple message that no one can successfully deny: whatever damage illicit drugs have done to individuals, communities and American society at large in recent decades, the politically fueled and now 40-year-old “War on Drugs” has only made the damage far worse. Writer/director Eugene Jarecki takes almost two hours to trace the history of drug laws in America while painting a personal portrait of families torn apart across generations by a vicious cycle of incarceration, economic hardship and despair. the whole thing may resonate more on one side of the political spectrum, but the film provides ample evidence that this particular issue has never been about red and blue. President Richard Nixon launched the War on Drugs in 1971 to lift his sagging pre-election poll numbers even though drug-related crimes were actually on the decline. Vintage clips reveal that Bill Clinton and even a young Joe Biden chose the same path to easy political gain when they felt they needed it. The House I Live In blends archival footage and new interviews with everyone from drug dealers to academic experts, and it does an excellent job of demonstrating how drug laws have always been enacted and selectively enforced to marginalize Americans along racial and economic lines. the numbers are beyond compelling: although the War on Drugs has cost $1 trillion and increased our prison population by 700 percent, drug use in America remains unchanged. And it’s nothing short of shocking to learn that there are more African Americans under correctional control today than were enslaved in America in 1850, a decade before the start of the Civil War. Entire American towns and regions have become dependent on for-profit prisons — and a constant flow of new prisoners, often incarcerated for life for non-violent drug crimes — to maintain economic viability. Jarecki transcends the statistics by collecting stories from people from his own past whose lives have been destroyed by the system. If he serves as the soul of the film, it’s David Simon, creator of HBO’s Treme and The Wire, who becomes its conscience. Simon spent 10 years covering the War on Drugs for The Baltimore Sun and he pops up repeatedly here, always imploring us to be honest with ourselves about the destructive nature of our draconian laws. He winds up describing the drug war as “a holocaust in slow motion.” It’s powerful stuff, and not to be missed by anyone interested in understanding the social ills that plague us today as never before. — KEN KORMAN

Works by Aaron Collier and Anita Cooke

For most of America’s history, art was all about recognizable objects. Whether sharp or fuzzy, coolly detached or sentimental, we knew what we were looking at — until roughly 60 years ago when abstract expressionism seemed to appear out of nowhere. Or did it? In fact, abstraction had been with us all along, as rural women from Appalachia to Iowa stitched patchwork quilts that were really the first American abstract art form. Some surmise that all those repeating orderly patterns may have tHRu Broken Star: Oil paintbeen a response to the chaos of rural life, ings by Aaron Collier noV and while Aaron Collier admits to being Cole Pratt Gallery, influenced by growing up with his grand3800 Magazine St., mother’s quilts, his new paintings are (504) 891-6789; www. more about the tension between stability and change. Where abstract ism was all about inner, or subjective, values, Collier’s explosions of color and tHRu Density: New sewn constructions by gesture encompass our contemporary noV Anita Cooke concern with atmospheric upheavals and the unholy symbiosis of technology and Jonathan Ferrara Galpop culture that define modern life. In lery, 400A Julia St., Broken Star (pictured), most patchwork (504) 522-5471; quilt elements are there, but the energy www.jonathanferrarais fractured and serrated with glaucous phosphorescence radiating outward as if from a particle collider. With and Without Weight further elaborates Collier’s collision of established order and chaos theory in a visual metaphor of what happens when nature starts to undo everything we thought we knew and science — and human improvisation — have to scramble to make sense of it all. Much of the texture of modern life comes from complex layers of everything ranging from laws to the dense electronic circuits that entangle our lives like cat’s claw vines. Nature and culture are invoked in Anita Cooke’s Density expo at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery, in works like Hidden Garden where her grandmother’s sewing machine helped her cobble swirls of colored thread into works that mimic the complexity of the natural world and the modern systems designed to serve us, but in which we now appear irrevocably entangled. — D.

oscar wilde is almost synonymous with witticism. bon mots roll off the tongues of his characters with languid ease. his drawing room comedies seem to take place in upper-class english society but are, in fact, set in a funhouse mirror version like Gilbert and Sullivan’s Japan. The Importance of Being Earnest, getting a buoyant production by Skin horse theater, remains fresh and hilarious a century after its London premiere. I expected the outpouring of wit, but I had forgotten the strong dramatic content of the play. there is no serious conflict, but there is a great deal of dramatic comedy. at times, Earnest borders on farce and director Garrett Prejean keeps the staging focused and fast. the play starts with algernon Moncrieff (brian Fabry dorsam) lounging at home while awaiting the arrival of his formidable aunt, Lady bracknell (Lynae Leblanc), and her daughter Gwendolen Fairfax (Veronica hunsinger-Loe). at his orders, his butler Lane (Samuel Moodey) has prepared cucumber sandwiches for them, but algernon gobbles them thoughtlessly. algernon is an amoral dandy who has invented an imaginary invalid friend named bunbury, whose needs serve as an excuse when algernon wants to traipse around the countryside indulging in romances. algernon’s buddy Jack worthing (Nathaniel Kusinitz) enters and is delighted to learn Gwendolen is coming, because he’s madly in love with her. Farcical elements seep into the story as algernon discovers that Jack has a pretty 17-year-old ward in the country. Jack also has invented a second identity: a decadent brother named ernest. this ruse gives allows him to do whatever he pleases in London. wilde piles comic climax on comic climax. It would be impossible to lay out all the plot twists or quote all the epigrams, but both pour out in delightful torrents. Jack (beloved as ernest by Gwen — who is enraptured with that name) proposes and she accepts. when he’s grilled by the snobbish Lady bracknell, he confesses a fatal flaw: he has lost both his parents. actually, they lost him. he was found as a baby in a handbag in a cloakroom at Victoria Station. the scandalized Lady bracknell storms off with her daughter in tow. Next we’re off to Jack’s country estate, where we meet his ward Cecily Cardew (Lucy Faust) and her tutor Miss Prism (becca Chapman). algernon arrives, pretending to be Jack’s brother ernest, to flirt with his friend’s ward. the romance goes well, partly because Cecily has always been allured by her guardian’s depraved brother ernest. Jack arrives unexpectedly to announce the death of his brother, whom he has decided to get rid of. Unfortunately, his brother (in the person of algernon) is already there. to make matters worse, Lady bracknell and Gwendolen arrive. two romances have crashed on the reef of a name. there are still more surprises, and they warrant the trip to see this classic live on stage. — daLt woNK

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, “This is embarrassing, but I need your advice. A few years ago, I was convicted of something I’m not proud of. After I was released, I got a job through a friend. But now they are laying me off because of downsizing. Can you tell me how I should mention my record as I look for work? — Thomas T., New Orleans, LA Dear Thomas, This is an issue that you will definitely need to tackle head on. The Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) reports that at least 80% of private employers are currently using criminal background checks as a component of their hiring process. In fact, there are more than 800 companies nationwide that provide background checks. A January 2012 study in the journal, Pediatrics, found that nearly one-third of American adults have been arrested by age 23. Grant Cooper The first thing I would urge you to do is to is to obtain a copy of your criminal records and review them to make sure they don’t contain mistakes. Errors are actually quite common. Arrests not resulting in conviction that are older than 7 years are not required to be reported, but that does not apply to you, since you were convicted. Under certain circumstances, some convictions can be expunged. You should consult an attorney to find out if your situation qualifies for that. Strategic Resumes assisted a client who had a college degree and had worked as a school teacher, but had been convicted of a DUI. He was barred from teaching again and was having extreme difficulty in finding a new job. In our opinion, his teaching experience was directly applicable to the field of training. We advised him to join a professional training and development organization, and he volunteered to assist in its conferences and activities. Following our advice, he also became more active in his church, and formed a strong bond his pastor. The personal recommendation from his pastor played a critical role in the decision of a local company to hire him as assistant director of training, a good-paying position with benefits. You didn’t mention what your offense was, Thomas, but keep in mind that there are certain types of jobs that are generally considered off limits for those with criminal records. These include banks, insurance companies, airports, security firms, railroads, casinos, childcare, education, and patient care. Your best bets are in industries like food and beverage, construction, building maintenance, manual labor, warehouses, factories, customer service, and some types of sales. Keep these tips in mind to help overcome your criminal record as you begin the process of looking for a new job: SERVICES 1. The most powerful antidote to your criminal background as an obstacle to your employment is to engage in community volunteer activities. Be sure to let the agency or non-profit know about your history. 2. Build a strong network of professionals and those in respected positions in the community and business world who can vouch for you. 3. Apply for positions that do not typically require thorough background checks and try to reach out to companies or organizations through a referral source trusted by the organization.

5. Prepare a résumé emphasizing your qualifications and do not mention your criminal record unless it is directly addressed by the employer or requested on application forms. 6. Keep your outlook positive, focus on your strengths, assert what you can do to help the employer’s bottom line, and ready yourself to answer questions about your criminal history in a direct manner.
