The car is packed and we were tearfully leaving New Orleans and Oil Spill Corexit Land, on our way to “pre-evacuate” to Austin tonight, but then the storm went thataway. And hell no, we’re not driving into it.
Plus the Universe gifted us a ticket to the Eagles of Death Metal show at One Eyed Jacks, so if the gargantuan methane bubble under the sea floor explodes or gives way, and lightning strikes the blackwater and we all die in a fiery oilcano or a crude-and-Corexit tsunami accompanied by poison clouds of gas, at least we will be rocking.
Here’s the same moment from the USA Today cover we were on with Dug the other day, but this time we were on the cover of Boston dot com. Finally hit the big time! Just as we’re all going to die lol.
