I don't really have any thoughts. I just got back from New Orleans a couple days ago, though. I was out there filming some behind the scenes stuff at the Superdome for my company. It was pretty crazy over there. I got to tour the stadium and also shoot some stuff at the media center. Had a ton of fun.
I posted while I was there that I was in a quiet little dive bar from the 1700s at like 2 in the morning and the only other people there were Bill Simmons, Rembert and a few of their friends (possibly also Grantland employees). I introduced myself to Simmons (I'm a huge fan)... shook his hand and told him I was a Celtic fanatic as well. He said, "We've had a rough week"... they were on their way out, unfortunately. I asked if I could get a picture with him (since I happened to have a camera on me) and he said, "I'm not supposed to be here". Not sure what he meant by that since the fact he was in Nawlins was all over his twitter feed. Oh well.
I made up for it (sort of) a night later by going into a little jazz club on Frenchmen Street. I was told that's where the locals go (outside of the French Quarter)... Great music. Then I spotted Neil Patrick Harris. Introduced myself to NPH, talked to him briefly and asked for a pic. He was super friendly and agreed. Unfortunately, my coworker took the pic and it came out terrible. Hah. Andrew Luck happened to be at the same club. I would have talked to him, but I don't know crap about the NFL. I didnt' even recognize him until my coworker pointed him out. So basically, I spent all night dancing on the dance floor with Andrew Luck and Neil Patrick Harris. Fun times.
Here's some random pics I took.
