Gimme my projects back!
Via commenter doctorj2u, we have some video goodness from Big Red Cotton relevant to Big Chief Lambreaux’s simmering battle over the projects, which came to a head in episode 6 when he tossed out the city council aide for offering him and his gang a FEMA trailer. A FEMA trailer for all of them. I hadn’t yelled at a TV like that since late 2005.
BigRedCotton — May 22, 2010 — Homegoing tribute for Brandon Franklin at Hi Ho Lounge, sponsored by Stooges Brass Band. This is one of my favorite TBC songs:
“Gon talk to Nagin…and give him a piece of my mind! Give me my projects back!”
Also featuring footwork of Shalanda Goffner, member of Lady Buckjumpers Social Aid and Pleasure Club
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Memorials for this man, who came and went much too quickly in this life, have also come and gone, but one can still contribute to his memorial fund to defray his funeral expenses and help care for his son. The information is at the bottom of this post.
And speaking of Big Red, she has a new post up on Notes from New Orleans about the weekly Treme viewings at the Charbonnet Funeral Home. Check it out.
Thanks again, doctorj2u.
