Banksy in New Orleans

Banksy Battles the Gray Ghost

Banksy Battles the Gray Ghost

I’ve been very remiss in my posting these days. That’s because I’ve been orchestrating an international move from London to New Orleans. Come Monday, partner PJ and I will be back in the arms again of my family and childhood friends. Head Metblog Dude, Sean Bonner, has allowed me to carry on bitching on the New Orleans Metblog, so yay!
And, speaking of New Orleans Metblog, Richard has posted that London’s own Banksy has been gracing the walls of The Big Easy and doing battle with the Gray Ghost.
On his website Banksy seems surprised at the city’s constant state of decay: “I looked out the window of the taxi on the drive into New Orleans and remarked ‘There’s still so much devastation – I can’t believe they haven’t cleaned this mess up.’ To which the driver stared at me and said ‘This part of the city wasn’t affected by the hurricane. It’s always looked like this.'”
Oh, how I cannot wait to be home again.
