All-Star Zion Williamson

JESUS H. CHRIST!! Pelicans’ #ZionWilliamson is named as a starter on the #NBA All-Star team. #Hallelujah!

What in the hell do you think of that?

I cannot wait until the All-Star game.

Mardi Gras 2023

Here is a Mardi Gras memory; a blast from the past:

BOSCOVILLE (Gazette) — By the way, this is from Mardi Gras weekend 2014 in New Orleans: The best of the parades and the best of the Balls are this weekend… culminating on Fat Tuesday. I am worn down tonight; but I am going to kick things back off in the morning.

Yes, this picture is becoming one of my favorites. I need to find this poster and hang it on my wall. WHERE CAN I FIND THIS POSTER?? I want it.

New Orleans

New Orleans

GAZETTE (February, 2014) I just read something that reminded me that the OSCARS are tonight. I might come back online later and list my choices before the broadcast.

GAZETTE (Jan. 20, 2023) — True story! During a 2023 New Year’s celebration (at about 1220am), I sang a song for the crowd which I dedicated to a sweet someone which rendition made her swoon. I occasionally serenade her anyway; and many of the romance songs which I sang at the Coffee House were written by me for her. Very true!

This following definition enhancement is illuminating for me because it tells me a success strategy. It might help me with reaching my goals: Ideation is not just a one-time idea generation or a brainstorming session. In fact, we can divide ideation into these three stages: generation, selection, and development.

A NOTE in 2014. (I have since changed my mind 180°): Coach Monty Williams of the New Orleans Pelicans needs to be fired. This team has been in last place of their division for the last three years. Does owner Tom Benson have his head stuck up his buttockal area?

Jane Fonda was Barbarella

In a repost from 2019: This is New Orleans SAINTS’ Demario Davis speech before the Seattle SEAHAWKS game:
Listen up!
It’s time to hunt. It’s time to hunt.
The hunt’s got three parts.
First it’s the prowl.
The prowl is where you study your prey and you creep in and figure out how you’re going to get that perfect strike. We done studied this opponent all week. We know the opponent. Now it’s time to strike,
The second part is the kill.
The kill is what people don’t like. That’s that nasty (stuff.) It’s violent. It’s SAINTSick. It’s malicious. It’s violent. When you see your opponent today, look him in his eyes and take his soul. And don’t stop until it’s gone. Don’t stop until it’s gone.

And the last part is to eat. It’s to eat. That’s the whole reason why we are here. When one wolf eat, all the wolves eat. When one lion eats, all the lions eat. So if you want to take care of your brother, you eat. You eat by making plays. Every throw. Every catch. Every tackle. Every sack. Let’s go eat. Let’s go eat!!

GEAUX SAINTS!

Holiday Food

Okay, the Saints are winning since I wrote this meme. I am suddenly liking on the Saints again, but we all know that they are going to lose this lead before the end of the game. #woeisme!

…unless they win tonight. Then, I will like them again.

NOTE: By the way, See below what I think about the New Orleans SAINTS’ game plan under the current coaches.

GAZETTE (NOV. 28, 2022) — I cannot wait until I get to my refrigerator in order to see what Thanksgiving deliciousness is left.

UPDATE: I “eviscerated” the food into my stomach. So, that is why…
The cat who ate the canary.
The cat who ate the canary.

I said that they put me in “time out” because it looks like they punished me after I raided the fridge for some leftovers from Thanksgiving.

Then...

If you are wondering what my thoughts were when I studied the picture of this girl, I wrote out some words that explain a little bit about what was percolating in my cranial area at the time. Scroll down a little bit to see what I wrote.

I say something below.
More news...

Now that my stomach is filled up, I feel like watching some TV. I do not need any blankets or heat because it is very pleasant tonight.

She is watching TV.

MEANWHILE:

Music is the language of love. A song is what sparked off all of the love in the classic movie CASABLANCA.

Oh, what a love song!

I just watched the New Orleans SAINTS get rubbed out in a football game as usual. But anyway...
Click #7’s picture for more.

The Baton Rouge Advocate bought the New Orleans Times-Picayune and now we get LSU on the front page of the sports every day, and relegate Saints, Pels, Tulane to page four or further back in the newspaper. UPDATE: Word must have reached the Advocate because the newspaper has recently been fairer in its placement of stories about SAINTS, Pelicans, Tulane, etc.


Even Jesus Christ held music “upon high” in his ministry, and sang hymns when he met with his followers. Jesus’ music tradition is still carried on today in most religions which hold music up in a high place. The Scriptures say that the Lord lives in our praises. Godly, spiritual music is praise.

This picture below is scientists’ rendition of how Jesus looked (using scientific and DNA methods). This is the picture of Jesus that they portray.

Do you remember when Donald Trump strangled his secret service agent on January 6th?

Do you believe your very own eyes or do you believe the words coming out of Donald Trump’s lying mouth about the incident?

Proof with your own eyes…

GAZETTE (New Orleans) — This picture below of Mrs. Thomas is somewhat mean-spirited. Mrs. Clarence Thomas is a lovely lady. It is her politics and sway on Clarence’s SCOTUS decisions that people do not like.

Ginni Thomas

This is a younger picture (below) of Ginni Thomas which shows how lovely she was.

Ginni when younger.

Many people wonder if Donald Trump will suffer any consequences for his insurrection crimes on January 6th. He wants to announce early for the 2024 Presidential race in order to protect himself from prosecution. His thinking is that no charges will be brought against him while he is campaigning.

Meanwhile, I would like to perform my act and music again.

by FERDIE (July 4) — My stand-up comedy and music career might be over. The Corona virus shut the doors of the coffee house at which I performed for a number of years. When it opened back up (they and Algiers Point Bar where I did some open mic nights) contacted me often to come back and perform. I was not ready to go into Corona crowds yet. They eventually stopped calling. I might start back, but I still avoid Corona crowds.

Coffee house where I performed for years before Corona hit.

Kareem Abdul Jabber at 7’2″ makes Bill Russell and Muhammad Ali (both over 6 feet tall) look short. I tell you what, as I get older, I can see people who were shorter than I now look taller than I. It surprises me, but I had a back injury with vertebrae damage.

Kareem Abdul Jabber

Have you ever seen a turtle basking in the sunlight. It is almost a spiritual act. I could never understand it

Native American Legends:

Wakan Tankan (Wakataka)

Name: Wakan Tanka. Tribalaffiliation:LakotaDakota Personage: The Great Spirit; God. Alternate spellings: Wakantanka, Wakan-Tanka, Wakataka
Pronunciation: wah-kahn tahn-kah
Also known as: Great Mystery
Type: High godCreator

Wakan Tanka is the great Creator power of the Lakota and Dakota tribes. Wakan Tanka is an abstract, omnipresent creative force who is never personified in traditional Siouan legends, and in fact did not even have a gender before the introduction of English with its gender-specific pronouns.

Inquiring minds want to know. Can we come up with the public’s opinion on the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard of their day (Brad&Angie)? I am now thinking that I should have given 2 more choices: 1. Neither one is wrong, or 2. Both of them are wrong.

100% of the voters said that Brad was wrong.

Sexy Jessica Simpson wants to know too. BREAKING NEWS (2016) was reported on the custody battle between Angelina and Brad:

I am happy to see that they resolved the custody battle for now.

I like old-school movies and old-school pictures. Bettie Page has to be the most prolific pinup queen ever. She has a great, unending volume of pictures. The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Page was most famous for the estimated 20,000 4-by-5-inch black-and-whoite glossy photographs taken by amateur shutterbugs from 1949 to 1957. The photos showed her in high heels and bikinis or negligees, bondage apparel–or nothing at all.”

To explain the meaning of the Louisiana state flag, one must stress the fact of the Catholic spiritual act of self mutilation or self torture. This is called vulning which many Catholics have practiced throughout history. The pelican harms itself to feed blood to the three chicks. This is symbolic of Christ who sacrificed his blood to save his followers. Louisiana is historically a Catholic state based on its French and Spanish roots.

NOTE: The Dodgers will win next year. The San Diego Padres are still hanging on this year. UPDATE: Eventually, the Houston Astros beat the Phillies in the 2022 World Series after the Phillies eliminated the Padres 4 games to 1 in their series.

In the meantime, I would surely enjoy some pie...

My warning to all of the dummies and critics in the world: you do not eat the whole pan, you big dummy.

Do no eat whole pan.

I was in a movie with Paula, DEJA VU. I know that I mention this occasionally. I am watching one of her other movies right now and that is what made me bring it up. I was an extra in Deja Vu; Paula was one of the Stars. We eyeballed each other on the set. I tweeted her to ask her out after she and her husband, singer Robin Thicke, broke up. I tweeted her to ask if she wanted me to escort her to the Oscars.

Paula Patton and my tweet to her. I asked her out on a date.

And now, here is Heidi Klum in the picture below. I had posted a video of Heidi here also, but I took it down today. In the video, she was “too sexy for herself.” 🙂 I heard a comedian say that onstage once. He said that he was too sexy for himself.

Then, here goes O.J. running off his mouth how Deshaun Watson’s six-game suspension for molesting 27 women was a long enough punishment. My opinion is that Deshaun should have been suspended for the whole season.

O.J. puts foot in… mouth.

My current take on the New Orleans Saints: I turned my TV off Sunday in the 4th Quarter after 2 horrific referee calls. I cannot take it anymore! P.S. I have the hat on in the picture below because my head got cold overnight.

Geaux Saints!

Okay, Elvis! HIT IT!!
This is a great scene...

Sugar Ray

I was happy to see singer Fats Domino get a street named after him in his home town New Orleans. He deserved it. He is one of the originators of Rock and Roll.

Speaking of nice, I think that...

Her outfit is nice because the mask and her gym pants are both purple. Outfits where the colors match are nice.

Nice outfit.

Raquel Welch was one of the top movie stars in the 1960’s and 70’s. I do not know if she won any academy awards. However, I think that it was the type of roles that she was given. Usually, like Marilyn Monroe, the studios typically gave her roles that mostly emphasized her nice appearance instead of giving her meaty, dramatic roles.

UPDATE: In 1974, Welch won a Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Musical or Comedy for The Three Musketeers.

Raquel Welch

A story by Sugar Ray (below) reminded me of one of my encounters that I remember. 

GAZETTE (July 7) — I had a similar story in my repertoire to Sugar Ray’s which he tells here. My story also took place in a locker room where I checkmated a bully. Here is Sugar Ray’s story first. Sugar Ray says:

“One day, a bully, probably about six feet two, threw me against a locker at Parkdale High. I was almost knocked out cold.” (However, at 13 years old, Leonard had started training as a boxer. By 15 he was competing as an amateur boxer in the AAU’s national division.)

He said, “The old me would have searched for any peaceful way to end the mismatch. The new me fired a succession of left hooks, missing wildly. The bully began to laugh, yet each hook began coming closer and closer, until one put his butt on the ground.

“I looked down at my fists, seeing them in a whole different light. I realised they could operate outside the ring as well as they did inside. As for the bully, he never bothered me again.”

  • by Sugar Ray Leonard
Sugar Ray.

by Ferdie (New Orleans) — I also had a similar bully incident in a locker room that I settled by knocking the scumbag to the floor with a powerful combination that my cousin had taught me. Just like Sugar Ray said, “As for the bully, he never bothered me again.” NOTE: I spend most of my time to myself, enjoying TV, cooking, eating, being with loved ones. I hate bullies, crime, violence and all of the killing in the streets.

I never did become the boxer or “ninja” that my cousin is; but with what skills he taught me I successfully neutralized several hateful lowlifes whom I came across through time. Today, there is such a spirit of hate in the world that it is overwhelming.


This picture below shows how Americans spray tanned themselves in the 1940s. I think that is similar to how people do today, but now they climb inside a machine which tans them.

Spray tanning in 1940’s.

By the way, I bet that most people around the world get their tans by lying on a beach or in their back yard.

Spring Time

Many states already had “trigger bans” written up for when the Supreme Court voted to outlaw abortions. That way their state would already have laws written up making it illegal immediately.

Supreme Court voted down abortion.

The Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade on Friday sets off a cascade of antiabortion legislation that will affect roughly half the country.

Without the landmark precedent in place, access to abortion began to change quickly. First, 13 states with “trigger bans,” designed to take effect if Roe were struck down, will prohibit abortion within 30 days. At least eight states banned the procedure the day the ruling was released.

These states were ready, waiting on the ledge to ban abortions.
Note: See most attractive man below.

Ferdie (January 5, 2023) — On the 7th vote for Speaker of the House, Rep. Matt Gaetz voted for Donald Trump.

MEANWHILE… It is spring time, and we are all hoping for easier times after this long stretch with the pandemic and the issues with the gun control. It is time for love to be in the air. Dog is man’s best friend.

They say, “Dog is man’s best friend.”

Speaking of man’s best friend, I saw that according to Science Magazine, actor Robert Pattinson is the most attractive man in the world. My scientific metrics are currently working out who is the most beautiful woman. To stop my metrics machine at this point for a moment to see who is coming out first right now, my study says that Sofia Vergara is tops.

Most attractive man.

According to how the numbers are playing out currently in my metrics study, Sofia Vergara is polling out as the #1 most beautiful woman. In fact, I wrote a story about Sofia recently. I will look it up and link it here.

My Metrics Machine says Sofie #1 woman.

Why would the deplorables want to elect a president who committed insurrection against his government? Joe Biden is 10,000 times better than Donald “Traitor” Trump.

I do not believe this.

I love crawfish, especially crawfish bisque which I ate last weekend.

Whoo La La

What’s up with Nick Saban? Is he sensitive/hurt since Tennessee beat his #sissy team this weekend? Click the link until I can embed it. I loved ❤️❤️❤️ watching Alabama (6-1) lose. My opinion is that Saban needs to lose more often. Plus, Tulane (6-1) is now ranked in the top 25 and LSU is not. Alabama is ranked #6.

GAZETTE (Match 30) — The New Orleans Saints have picked up QB Andy Dalton to back up Jameis Winston. Excellent move! I like this very much. Former backup QB, Taysom Hill, will now be used mainly as a tight end. I love the move with Andy Dalton. Now, Jameis Winston will have to have a good year for these moves to pay off.

Geaux Saints.
The 2022 season.
Oh, my goodness...

The New Orleans Pelicans are playing the Lakers on Sunday night. I am sweating bricks. The Lakers might want sweet revenge for that major butt-whooping that the Pelicans laid on them last month. Good God almighty!! UPDATE: The Pels beat the Lakers in an exciting game, and are now riding a high “wave.”


I think that I like this video below. Last week, I posted a still picture of this young lady. Now, thank God, she has put out a video of the photo session. Lovely!

Sorry to drag @rickygervais into this but his jokes at the Golden Globes were brutal. BRUTAL. No one slapped him because…well…he’s a comedian. @chrisrock didn’t deserve this and Will Smith ruined what should have been one of the best nights of his life. https://t.co/obXKy7qPed

Please don’t leave me, Jada.
Oscar and Globe jokes are brutal. Will Smith is low class.
