This is not now nor will it ever be a sports blog. But after spending the past few years hanging out in Treme on Sunday afternoons watching the Saints wreck whoever was foolish enough to get in their way I felt like it was time to link up a few Saints fight songs that we play to take the party up a level:

X Man, Bigshott, Big Rec, and Kuniqua: “Heart of the city…Who Dat New Orleans Saints” link

Rebirth Brass Band: “Casanova” link

Baby Boy da Prince “This Is The Way We Live” Saints remix link

Ying Yang Twins: “Halftime Stand Up and Get Crunk” link

JM3 and TOCA: “Get Up Out Ya Seat” link

K Gates: Black and Gold Who Dat link

Archibald’s Barbecue In Northport Alabama

Photo gallery from Birmingham News. The pit fire was put out by the fire department, and Archibald’s will, hopefully, reopen tomorrow.

We started eating at Archibald’s when we were teenagers back the 80s. When George Archibald Jr retired a couple years ago the quality slipped but we still run by there once a year to wool gather and dream about the old days.

Archibald’s has the best barbecue sauce we’ve ever eaten in a restaurant.

Mississippi Blues

We no longer write about music.

But a few time per year we’re stirred to put down a few words on field hollers and such.

It’s one of those times.

If you enjoy listening to old Black men born and reared in Mississippi, and laying down the old truth then please visit.

This is that sitting on the couch getting drunk on cheap whiskey shit.

Michael Corcoran and Tim Kerr’s Mural

Michael Corcoran is putting in the hard work to keep Texans aware of our state’s rich musical history. Recently he teamed up with Tim Kerr (Big Boys) to install a giant mural at the corner of 9th Street and Red River in downtown Austin.

We dialed up an agent in Austin to ride over to the site and take some pictures for this post.
