Double Feature (Videos)


Is the new House of Cards not all that you hoped? If you need plan B for your Netflix and chill, check out a pair of Crescent City classics online. New Orleans After Dark and King Creole are both now available online. Watch them after the jump.


Fred Armisen's "Louisiana Accent" (Video)


SNL allum Fred Armisen reunited with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (1.19) evening’s episode of The Tonight Show. During the segment, Armisen, a self described “expert at accents,” offered his take on the Louisiana accent. If you are defensive about local culture, you might want to close this window now.


Luckylou Drops the Riverwalk (Video)


Wally World was immortalized in NOLA hip hop lore back in 2011. Now, the RiverWalk is receiving the musical treatment. Native artist Luckylou (a/k/a Jermy Tassin) dropped the Riverwalk song and dance this week.


Master P Beefs With Cox


Lots of locals have issues with the Cox Cable Company. Now Master P is joining that list. He is not upset about the service disruptions or high prices. Rather, the hip-hop mogul is upset that his reality show “Family Empire” is not available to viewers in New Orleans.


Big Apple Stomp (Video)


Millions of Americans tuned in to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City today. Perennial favorites, Snoopy and Santa Claus, elicited cheers, but the highlight was New Orleans own 610 Stompers.


Viewdoo


Anyone who ventured downtown last night can confirm that the Halloween festivities have hit a fever pitch. With the start of Voodoo Fest, costuming, consumption, and concerts are nearing peak levels. But, what about of those of us stuck in an office? Despair not! In 2015, the music will be live-streamed.


Erika Storms West


Meteorologists are cautiously optimistic that Tropical Storm Erika will not pose a threat to New Orleans. Instead, the National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting that the fifth named storm of the Atlantic season will hit Cuba before veering north through Florida.

Love will be in the stars for many spaceheads tonight. The Perseids Meteor Shower will be visible at its peak on Wednesday (8.12) night and early Thursday (8.13) morning.


Where to Watch Mayweather-Pacquiao in NOLA


Floyd Mayweather’s last run in with New Orleans involved a lawsuit against the Wine Bistro for claiming that the champ and his “Money Team” would be at a Super Bowl kickoff party. Litigation aside, New Orleans is geared up for the fight versus Manny Pacquiao tonight.


10 Bars to Watch the Saints' NFL Draft


The Saints are entering the 2015 NFL Draft with two first round picks and nine opportunities overall. They also have plenty of holes to fill. Who Dats can’t make the picks for them, but we can watch and get a taste of the Black n’ Gold four months before the season. Football is better with friends. So, NoDef put together a list of ten places to check out the action.
