Email of the Day: Mother's Edition

Please read the following email regarding two high school aged extras who worked on set with us on Tuesday. This email is coming from one of their mothers.

"Cody and Dallas really enjoyed doing their scene for 21 Jump Street, I don't know if you read Codys interests on his application, but he is big time into motocross and motorcycles. He has been riding since he was about 5 yrs old. I just had a thought, IF Cody and Dallas get called back to do something in the prom dance scene, wouldn't it be cute if they were dressed for the prom and showed up to the prom on a motorcycle. I just think that would be so cute....... Thanks again for choosing them, I know it was a short little scene but they really enjoyed themselves. Thanks

Wow, Frannie. Maybe you should look into becoming a director. Sounds like you've got a real knack for it!

Easter Weekend: Shreveport Whirlwind

Well this weekend was a 'three day weekend' here on 21 Jump Street so I traveled north to the Shreve for a friend/fam fix.

I went to a strip club for the first time (not counting the all-male one that I went to in New Orleans for Melissa's Bachelorette Party). So, needless to say, I didn't have to look very far for any Easter eggs. Eggs painted and stuffed with regret, that is. I learned what it means when rappers say things such as 'She make dat ass clap" as well as that most of them wipe down the pole before they mount it. All in all, a classy night.

The next day, I got to hang out with my fraand Sass:

We had a romantic date at my favorite place, Tacomania, followed by some patio time at my favorite porch: The Cub.

Saturday, I spent most of the days with these two terrors, I mean, angels as well as the rest of my fam:



Saturday afternoon I spent time at the Oyster Bar and ran into these little gems:

Mark and I

Covilove and myself

Everyone go ahead and take note as to how great my tan (burn) lines look from French Quarter Festival. No, I wasn't wearing a stringy top, I was simply wearing a necklace when I received that deep V mark. This, is why I don't go outside.

Saturday nightt there was a party, in my honor, at the Crawford Mansion Patio. Here are some highlights.


My new best friend Sarah Thomas and Benjamin - the pride of South Highlands.

Now back in New Orleans. We began filming today meaning, free lunches have began. Lobster tail on the first day! So happy here!

Email of the Day: John Goodman Edition

"Subject: do ya'll have contacts with John Goodman?


I have a TV series that I want to shoot in N'awlins--I want to pitch it to John Goodman first--it was written for him--but I'm flexible.


New Orleans is going well! I participated in my first Second Line this weekend as well as my 145th Hand Grenade. Keepin it Klassy. I'm heading back to the Shreve this weekend for Easter with the fam. I can't wait to see everyone!

It's The Weekend, Ya'll!

My fraand Ashley is coming to visit me this weekend. We are going to hit up the French Quarter Festival and see "Trombone Shorty" (see pic below):

I've never heard him before, but he looks right up my alley. A little thuggish ruggish Bone and a little jazz all mixed together in a sweet, little, intimidating in a back alley kind of package.

I need to go invest in some sunscreen and a floppy hat because this white girl is going to get her self a burn and peel situation if she's not careful.

I feel as though Mercury might be in retrograde because yesterday I had an "out of the blue" conversation with someone who I have known for years but have had little to no contact with other than "Hi! How are you?" "Tell your extras to wear soft soled shoes", etc. So he Facebook chats me up yesterday at 1PM Central Standard Time, drunk, and throwing out sexually explicit dialogue, telling me that he loves me and that his wife won't care and that we should get a hotel together, etc.

All I could muster out of my fingertips was nervous 'hahas' and 'well I gotta runs' and whatnot. It helps that he is on the East Coast currently, doesn't have my phone number and doesn't know where I live. Thank God. However, I can't wait for him to sober up and scroll up on that chat in a couple of days.

Thanks Mercury.

Back in the Saddle

Well I've started working on 21 Jump Street (the movie, not a TV series)... finding those crazy extras, etc. etc. I'm in New Orleans again, loving life, making new friends, connecting with old friends and having a blast. Here is a little photo gallery of some shiz that has been going down.

Behold: The ambiance at the bar across the street from my office, The Bridge Lounge. They have a great patio as well as some great house drinks. I had a 'Porch Swing' which was similar to a Pimm's Cup - a signature New Orleanian drink made with cucumbers. Yum.

This is my Royal Wedding commemorative item that my dear friend, Charles Rapp (some call him C. Rapp, or just Crap) brought me from the Holy Land, i.e. the UK - home of the royals.

Apparently the Royal Wedding isn't as big of a deal here as it is in North Louisiana. Every time I ask if anyone is going to the bar at 6am to watch it and drink Sloe Gin cocktails, everyone looks at me like I'm insane. Whatev.

Here are some photos from my newest discovery which is a little place along the river behind Audubon Park called "The Fly"

I met all of these people there. They are co-workers and their friends. It was a super cool place and I intend to return soon. Maybe on a Saturday to read a book or something.

This was the final picture as I left. What a Crescent City-ish photo! Thanks iPhone!

More updates soon to come!

Well this is Interesting

Thinking about taking this Craigslist housing advertisement seriously... Welcome back to New Orleans, ya'll!

"I am offering a beautiful furnished room with private bath and utilities included in a gated community in my home in Algiers in exchange for Christian companionship. I am a single male, 32, Christian and would like to find a special single woman to share my home with. This is an alternative syle of relationship. I have gone through the typical traditional dating scene and it is not working for me. So I am experimenting with this idea. I am a very open minded person and am open to new ideas for companionship with a woman. I won't get just anybody. Truthfully, I work very long hours and would love to have a special companion with me just living in my home. I am generally too tired to drive and to do activities. It's especially warm and cozy to have the woman I am involved with just living with me.
I do require a criminal background check with anybody.*** Age and race is unimportant. If you are open minded and like to experiment with new things give me a call. (504) ***-****
Description: 32, male, Latino, 5'10, 190 lbs.,Tulane University graduate, have my own business in the French Quarter. Serious inquiries only. "

Lameness Update

So, John Belushi and I have broken up. I'm currently not eating, drinking lots of wine and watching Bridget Jones' Diary on repeat. Just waiting on Colin Firth to leave his wife and show up on my doorstep.

I'm not writing this for sympathy, just for an update. I'm working on thinking positively and embodying inspirational thoughts. Mardi Gras in Shreveport is this weekend. Let's hope my friends don't leave me face down in a gutter.
