Sucka’s Ready to Blow – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
On this Happy Hour, Julia Elizabeth Evans learns that you can be an artist, a philosopher, a daughter, a sister, a business person with your own production company, and a film maker on the way to world renown, and yet all a bunch of guys around a table want to know is what it’s like being in an open relationship.
Turns out it’s pretty interesting. For everyone.
Chris Succi is looking for a whole other life. And, as a result of his conversation here on Happy Hour with Julia, it looks like he’s found it. Chris wants to leave his ultra successful life in IT behind and throw himself on the mercy of the arts. So, as of now, he’s apparently making a documentary with Julia about Tipitina’s. You never know, it might just happen actually.
Legendary New Orleans blues and roots rock musician Marc Stone has spent many nights playing at Tipitina’s. Today he describes what it’s like sitting around a table playing to three people (daunting) while he eloquently describes the way many people feel about living in the US right now – in his new song about “this sucka” being “ready to blow, I don’t know where to go.”
When you look back at any part of your life, you can pinpoint moments that led to monumental change which, at the time, you had no idea were going to be significant. This hour might just be one of those pivotal moments for one or two of the folks around this table.
