Rob Here. We’re in New Orleans, staying at the Holiday Inn on Rue Dauphine in the French Quarter. Thanks in no small part to “Trusty” Dusty Wickham or rather thanks to his sister, big time.

The Holiday Inn looks like this:


Right now I’m pretty psyched that we’ve gotten this far. Our overnight Greyhound bus was the only one actually leaving Pittsburgh. Props to Ben for getting us to the station on time and on his empty tank of gas.


The bus ride was long, but a great time to catch up on some intermittent sleep, get lost in some deep thoughts, whataburgers and even shoot some essential scenes on the “coach.”



Nandan is leaving tomorrow.

Filming will probably fall apart because of that.

But somehow we’ll persevere and maybe get some shots we need.

Tomorrow our friend Jason will Join us as we continue our search to find affordable housing in the Big Easy during Mardi Gras. Jason will be playing two important roles in Fresh Starts (4 Stale People). Both onscreen and off. And perhaps most importantly as our chauffeur when he drives us to Austin this Sunday.

Hey Jason, Thanks in Advance.

Jesse, the editor of Bummer Summer should be around town tomorrow as well. He’s heading to Portland with our friend Jackie. Looks like we’re going to have a real party down here. Or Something.

Apparently it’s Mardi Gras. I wish someone had told us that sooner.
