A view from New Orleans' St. Louis Cemetery #1

I just flew in from New Orleans, and boy are my arms tired.

Not too tired to type, though. This week’s Jentasmic is appropriately titled, “The Big Uneasy.”

It’s a strange thing, my relationship with Disney and New Orleans.

On the one hand, I’m uncomfortable with the shiny, well-scrubbed New Orleans that Disney presents to us in such tributes as Disneyland’s New Orleans Square, and Walt Disney World’s Port Orleans French Quarter, and of course the recent film The Princess and the Frog. I’ve walked Bourbon Street at night, and it’s nothing like the quaint, meandering corridors that Disneyland offers. In fact, when arriving in New Orleans last Monday night, I found myself tweeting, “Just arrived in New Orleans, as in Louisiana, not that namby-pamby Imagineering bullsh*t.”

And what about the other hand? Head on over to StudiosCentral to read the rest….
