Metaphorical Mutilation – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
If you went to De La Salle High School and you walk into Barcadia, you might not recognize the boss man, Miles Tully.
That’s because Miles had his top and bottom jaw broken, his face totally reconstructed and got a new nose. And health insurance paid for the whole thing. When he recovered he was fabulously handsome, thin, and, for the first time in his 21 year old life, able to eat pizza like a normal person.
Katherine Allan knows a fair bit about mutilation too. She’s the first person you see when you walk into the neck-up-only plastic surgeon’s office to get work done. That’s a lot of pressure to look somewhere between fabulous and perfect every day. Luckily, as you can see, it’s not taking its toll too quickly, especially given Katherine is old enough to remember the birthday song at long-defunct Bravo! restaurant and stopped making bad and regrettable decisions some time ago for some pretty good reasons.
The real metaphorical mutilation in this show comes from the mind of singer-songwriter George Elizondo. If you have a million better things to do than listen to this podcast put this at the top of your list for no other reason than to hear George sing live. And hear the story of how he came to write a song with the sweetly sung chorus, “mutilate him.” It’s actually also worth learning why you may not have heard of George, yet. You’ll be surprised.
