News Flash 8/24/2009: Grant Henry AKA Sister Louisa Finally Starts Blogging

I think I can
Grant finally went and took the plunge. Over at New Tricks we have been helping Grant with a blog website design for his Grant Henry AKa Sister Louisa website the past several months. The problem is that we have been doing it in drips and drabs, which I don’t recommend. Much easier to get it all done in a week or so so you don’t forget where you were in the process. Anyway, I am very happy that this artist, philosopher, bartender and friend finally started posting. I know he hasn’t even gotten warmed up yet. He called his debut a “flabby” opening, so when he really rolls it out it will be something to behold. Grant’s post that he originally posted in Hollis Gillespie’s Creative Loafing column about why he is the happiest man alive is very moving. You have to read it since it shows the other side of the “Out There” Grant.

When I was blogging here a lot, before New Tricks started sapping all my blogging energy, Grant’s comments on my blog were the best thing going. I really looked forward to his whacked out view of things being that he is one of the funniest people I know and respect. Once I wrote a post about a lifesize artists model that my sister’s husband John named Eileen – because she did. Within an hour Grant sent me a full portfolio of photos of a male life size artist model, Lucious Lamar, in lewd poses. It was and is hilarious.

One of Grant’s many and main claims to fame is his Sister Louisa art. He collects religious paint by numbers and then paints his wisdom and creative insanity on them. As a former Catholic school girl, I really get this. Check it out and check out his blog. Yea, Grant, you have “Catapulted yourself into Greatness” !

Itinerary for December 6th Weekend of Fun

We have a B and B here at 130 Krog Street and this weekend we have a full house. Our guests are three men gator fans, and one is bringing his 17 year old son and 20 year old daughter from Florida coming up to see University of Florida beat Alabama on Saturday afternoon . One of them wrote to ask me what they should do with themselves while they are here. So I prepared the following customized itinerary

How Do You Like the New Template?

I mean, besides the fact that it doesn’t seem to work with Internet Explorer, yet it works just fine with Firefox. And I can’t get the comments page to work. And I’d rather the main paper part of the blog had a green folder sticking out from behind it rather than the curling paper but I haven’t gotten to that yet. I mean besides all that, what do you think?

And while I am asking some questions of you out there, can someone tell me

Eileen Gets Gussied Up

After catching a look at Lucious Lamar, who it turns out is only a step-brother she has never met, Eileen decided to get dressed up in case he drops by for a visit. Problem is Grant hasn’t seen Luscious since someone borrowed him and Grant can’t remember who. So if you know where Lucious ran off to please let me know. Grant would like him to come home and Eileen is waiting.
