Shreveport is number three in the nation when it comes to places in America to make independent films. Austin is number one says MovieMaker.
KTBS has this little blurb on it. We'd link to the Shreveport Times story but they always dead their links after a month or so... The best place to go for all your moviemaking Shreve news is Alexandyr Kent's blog.
Pictured is the Entertainment Weekly review of Mad Money.
A trip to to the Louisiana State Office Building on Fairfield Avenue turned into a study of rust. When you live in the historic Highland district decay and ruin happens, we just didn't expect to find in that wee building that looks like a park restroom located next to the south parking lot.
That building is abandoned. What a lovely little home it would make. A tiny house.
Believe it or not it's not too late to join a Krewe this year. Blanc et Noir is very affordable and wants you!
Krewe of Centaur Parade is this Saturday at 4:30 p.m. Krewe of Barkus and Meoux Parade is Sunday afternoon at the Riverview Park near the Barnwell Center. Krewe of Gemini is a week from Saturday on February 2 at 4:30 p.m.
The best parade rolls though the historic part of town on Sunday, February 3. The Krewe of Highland gets ta steppin' at 2 p.m. For more about SB Land Mardi Gras click here.
The island of Yeero!!! Yeero!!! looks like a white beach with blue water highlights. At least that's what RRBJ thought while standing across the street in the parking lot of Walgreens.
The interior is a dramatic contrast. The compact ten table dining room shimmers with romance. There's even a fireplace. In fact it was so nice we figured there was nothing we could afford on the menu. Wrong. It's the same delicious food as the drive-through menu only it's served up on real plates and the water comes in stemmed goblets. This local Greek restaurant deserves all six of those exclamation points.
One of Trudeau's first posts on his blog was on this restaurant at 4511 Youree Dr. Also - here's an amusing look by Daddy D (Darrell Rebouche) on what kind of reaction you can expect when you recommend on of the finest local eating establishments around.
Gabe is missing and needs his medcine. RRBJ took this pic at the corner of Creswell and College while out walking our dogs yesterday. KTBS has this positive story about a local pit bull. It's the heart touching story of a dog waiting near his owner even after the young man passes away. In other local canine stories, Shreveport has lost its advocate for a dog park. Who will step in and continue the work? Krewe of Barkus and Meoux Pet Parade is Sunday, January 27, 2008 at the RiverView Park.
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
