LSU, Tulane Do the Harlem Shake (VIDEO)
Over the last few weeks, a new dance craze is sweeping the nation. Don't worry, the Macarena hasn't returned. The Harlem Shake (not to be confused with this Harlem Shake) has everyone looking for roughly 30 seconds of fame on a YouTube video. It's even made its way to SoLA, where LSU and Tulane are getting down.
Mardi Gras Beatdown Caught on Video

Horn-Toting German Youth Doesn't Blame Trombone Shorty...For That (VIDEO)
When Trombone Shorty was the same age as Thomas, he was already leading his own brass bands. Being from Germany, the youngster might not have had a to get out in front of a second line quite yet. But a YouTube camera is another story. In a video that Shorty called "one of the best gifts I've ever received," our young singer-trombone player looks into the eyes of his hero's picture, and belts out an accent-heavy rendition of the Tampa Red cut, "Don't Blame Shorty for That." Now isn't that just the cutest thing come over here and let me get a....just watch it:
Mr. Ghetto Takes on NOLA Violence
When we interviewed him last year, Mr. Ghetto insisted to us that he had more than just a one-hit ode to Wally World up his sleeve (Well, it had many hits in YouTube terms). Turns out, he wasn't lying. Having recently been to jail and the hospital, Mr. Ghetto has had the city's out-of-control violence on his mind. In his new video, "Close My Eyes," the 7th Ward native ditches the panty-panty-panty-panty-hose, and gets reflective. Check out the video after the jump:
LA Guns Manager Who Knocked Out NOLA Graffiti Artists Shows No Remorse
There's no second thoughts in the L.A. Guns camp. In their recent NoDef interview with Skylar Fein, local graffiti artists The Bourghog Guild talked about a recent alteraction outside the Marigny club Siberia with the manager of hair metal band L.A. Guns after writing R.I.P L.A. Guns on the door of their tour trailer. "Next to some stickers," the Bourghog Guild told Fein. "It was clean, yeah. I understood why I got knocked out. I deserved it." Apparently Markham agrees. After seeing the article on a Facebook post by the band's singer Tracii Guns, the manager wrote, "Now you know why the second one got bitch slapped before i knocked him out."
VIDEO: 'LSU Championship Bounce' Backs That BCS Up
In case you ain't heard, LSU is going to the BCS Championship. Well, actually, they're coming to the championship, because the most important game ever played in the history of college football (Part II) is happening right here in New Orleans. In a related development, it appears the Bounce stylings DJ Jubilee have managed to travel all the way up I-10 to Baton Rogue, and Tiger Stadium is the new Wally World. In a YouTube video that appears poised to go viral titled "LSU Championship Bounce," some LSU students send up their gridiron heroes. Azz not included, so it's safe for work. Now eat grass with it:
Mayor Mitch Meets Occupy NOLA
Thanks to the size and spirit of the New York original, public attention has been rapt on the Occupy New Orleans protest-turned-Duncan-Plaza-encampment. But what drew in stated occupation target, Mayor Mitch? Perhaps, Landrieu just wanted to return the call of the protesters who stopped by his office while he was out on Thursday. Or, maybe the policy wonk at heart was intrigued by their use of percentages in sloganeering. Either way, Mayor Mitch took an opportunity on Friday to swing by and see what all the fuss was about for a quick chat with the demonstrators. Video after the jump.
Cows Thinking About Forming Social Aide and Pleasure Club
Here in New Orleans, we know that the best way to attract a crowd is to get a few friends and their horns together, and start in with a standard. But French quintent, The New Hot 5, is taking a more scientific approach. And since there are animals involved, it's perfect for YouTube. In this viral video that's taking Europe, "Jazz for Cows," the group plays before a pasture in the countryside, only to have a herd of cattle crowd near them. Look closely, and you might see one of the heifers start to buckjump. Click through to see the video!

Cops Driving Badly
When NOPD officers kill and cheat, it usually makes headlines. But we don't usually hear about the traffic violations. This week, however, two cases in which police were out-of-line with their cruisers have come to the fore. In the first, four-year-department veteran Justin Ferris was fired Wednesday for events surrounding an Uptown collision that killed a woman last year.
