It IS heaven!

I love the cajun culture so much that I have been thinking about going to Nawlins and do a real culinary school just once in my life.

I cant think of a worse **** than THAT! Cook all day, roam the French Quarter and shops in the afternoon, wake up and read the Times Picayune at the cafe du monde before I go to school all day to cook!!!

Now THAT is **** on EARTH!!!!!!!

I ordered some cajun CD's off the web, I really do not know much about the music except I know it when I hear it. The man in Metarie who owned the shop told me on the phone that these two cd's will do a Fais do-do proud!

I even talked to my mom yesterday to share those days a little, she told me that they have told her that the fais do-do is a dieing tradition and that almost nobody does them anymore.

I will do them until I get to heaven!!!!!

Cajun music so so great. I do not know any of it by name, but I remember watching a movie many years ago. It has something to do with Cajun people. All I remember was the music moved me to my soul. I wish I knew the name of the movie so I could track down that music. It was magical stuff!

I have a cabin on a river lake on the Mississipp with the water 100 feet from the back door. It is quite beautiful and wild and rustic there. My father built it and gave it to me later on, he built it complete with rounded brick arches and rought iron poles and rought iron railings that make you feel like you just stepped out of the Miss Delta and onto Royal Street. It is just wonderful.
I have a picture of it somewhere maybe I can find it.

The kids fish and the adults laze around and cook and relax. No better a thing to do in this part of the world in spring.

musicians to learn about -
Dewey Balfa or the Balfa Brothers
Beausoliel (a band, led by Michael Doucet)
Clifton Chenier (zydeco music - a little zippier than traditional Cajun, but boffo for dancing)
Buckwheat Zydeco (band, see Clifton Chenier)
Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys
D.L. Menard

CD produced by Ann Savoy - "Evangeline Made- A Tribute to Cajun Music"

geebs the movie you are thinking of could have been "Shy People", with Barbara Hershey and about the Cajun culture of the Atchalafaya Basin.

Also check out the Smithsonian live recordings done by Allan Lomax (sp?) from the 30s and 40s of traditional Cajun music.

C'est bon, cheres!

Nope that waasn't the movie. I don't remember much about it, but I know that I didn't like the movie. I seem to remember a deranged character trying to kill people and hunting them through a river while this amazing music was playing.

that was "Southern Comfort" (the name just came to me). With Keith Carradine and another guy I like but can't think of his name. They were doing Natl. Guard duty down in the swamps and one of their fellow Guardsman got idiotic and killed a Cajun. The rest of the movie is about how the Cajuns, who know the swamps so well, hunt them down.

Mud Bug where are you?

I was born in NO and mama is from Crowley.

I love that part of the world. I have done much in the wild there.

I caught some mud bugs -



Caught some catfish hand grabbin them out of barrels we put out for the spring.




Caught lots of Specks at Grande Isle



Caught me some of them big ole snappas and groupas



(even some big ones)



I just love just about all there is about south louisiana but if the people there were not like they are, it would not be the same.
