In the Beginning, God said What?

NEW ORLEANS (by Ferdie Werdie) –
In the beginning, God said: I play the trumpet.
In 1967, Louis Armstrong said: No kidding? You too?
In 2014, Ryan Seacrest said: I play the clarinet…
Go figure! Hahaha…

Here is Ferdie practicing for a gig this weekend on his INSTRUMENT OF THE LORD.

People often ask me, “Ferdie, what do you dream about? What comes up mostly in your dreams”? I tell them that often I dream about loved ones and relatives who have passed away. I often have vivid dreams where loved ones visit me in my dreams, and we have in-depth long conversations. I also have many, vivid, lively dreams about fine, lovely young ladies; some of whom I do not even know. I wake up truly feeling like I had just spent time with these ladies. I have even subsequently met some of these dream girls in real life. Unbelievable! They often look just like from my dreams. In fact, beginning over 30 years ago I used to dream about the very house that I live in now. I wrote a book in 2002 I HAVE A DREAM about living in this exact house. Who would have even imagined back then that I would now be living in this house? Out of the blue, I was offered to buy this house in 2007.

Louisiana Festival

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — On yesterday, 4 of my granddaughters (true cajun-dining experts already), myself and their moms enjoyed the Louisiana Seafood Festival. We ate bbq shrimp, stuffed oysters, alligator, shrimp/grits, charbroiled oysters, and more. My son in-law and 2 grandsons kept busy with skating, bicycling and other physical activities.

NEW ORLEANS (by Ferdie Werdie) — I have begun writing my review of the movie GONE GIRL. If anyone does not understand the ending, just ask me and I will tell you what happened. Actually, I see “sequel” written all over this movie.

I tend to prefer watching movies at home because you can regulate the noise, the crowd, the temperature, the food… and, so much more. On the other hand, I also enjoy going out for the big screen, the IMAX, the 3-D, all of that. However, yesterday, a lady walked into the theater with a big bag of fried chicken, potato salad, potato chips, canned drinks, aluminum foil, paper grocery bags, the whole works; and sat directly behind me. I flipped my lid because I could not hear the movie with all of the noise behind me. Eventually, I got up and moved to another seat. I lost my trend of thought in the movie for a moment; but once I got to a quiet location, I got my head back into the movie.

Robin Williams Suicide

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I send out my thoughts to the late Robin Williams. I am listening to many words of love from celebrities and loved ones on the TV and on the Internet.

Billy Crystal’s tweet said it all. Billy, Robin and Whoopi were a great comedic trio. They were all good friends.

In other news, I want to go into the jungle. SOON!!! If this is what you find lying around in the jungle, count me in.

Lindsey Lohan is Fine Actress

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Thank you Germany very much for buying my books, and visiting this website so often. What tag or link is driving you to read about Lindsey Lohan recently? Is Lindsey trending highly in Germany presently? Also, what tag or link is driving you to my books? By the way, my first book IS entitled DRIVING WOMEN CRAZY!! I wrote also that I was headed to the movies, and was wondering if Lindsey Lohan is in any movies out in theaters right now. UPDATE: I never did make it to the movies because of business commitments. However, I think that Lindsey Lohan is a lovely young lady who deserves a long, successful career if she can pull herself back together. Yes, she has had her share of struggles over the years in her young life. Can she clean up her act and have continued success in her life?

Here’s hoping that Lindsey can bring it together and keep her career going. I am sure that she has many fans wishing the best for her. Of course, she also has her detractors who would enjoy to see the train wreck continue. However, there is no guarantee that Lindsey might not wake up one fine day and put all of her ducks in a row.

Note: the following stories which I wrote about were also trending when I wrote this article. Beyonce’s sister attacks JAY-Z! Gets caught on security video, but with no sound. I do not know how close 50 Cent’s interpretation got to the real dialogue on the JAY Z “beating.” However, the dialogue that 50 Cent dubbed into the video sure made me laugh. In fact, I have to watch it once again to have a another good laugh. 50 Cent is too crazy! Spoiler Alert: 50 Cent uses “colorful” language. Meanwhile, Instagram took down 50 Cent’s video; but it is still running at this link.

In the NBA playoffs, these long 7-game series’ in rounds 1 and 2 only kill the fans; but it is also only all about the money for the teams.

What in the heck is usually on my mind anyway? Well, that is the big question in the picture below. Once I wrap up a few things at the house, I plan to go off for a while to get some delicious seafood. I will let y’all know how it all comes out. Firsly, I need to study one or two of these pictures in order to get my blood to flowing correctly.

****************************THE BIG QUESTION!!!************************

What in the heck is on Ferdie's mind this afternoon?

What in the heck is on Ferdie’s mind this afternoon?

UPDATE: My mind still is not blown yet, unless I am not cognizant of it. I did go off to get some good seafood. I went to one of my favorite little hide outs in the 7th Ward for some Cajun/Creole gumbo and an oyster sandwich. I washed it all down with a beer while I watched some fine booties walk in and out. Now, the only thing blown is my stomach. I plan to do some situps and some core exercises later on as soon as I get my head back together. BTW, I also still have to check to see what Jennifer Lawrence’s next movie is. I enjoy her work very much. I know that she is filming the next part of the HUNGER GAMES, but I do not think that is coming out yet.

Many fans watched with interest as quarterback sensation Johnny Manziel sat through 21 selections of the NFL draft before he was picked by the Cleveland Browns. Is this a good pick? Is he happy?

I was excited to see Blake Bortles of the University of Central Florida picked at #3 as the first quarterback selected in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. I think that this was a fantastic pick.

Well, I must say that Blake Bortles has fine taste in the ladies too. The Jaguar fans (I would imagine) will also be happy to see Blake’s girlfriend at the games.

I am also still in the process of developing my thoughts on Laura Logan and her suspension from CBS and her projected return. Certain circles believe that Logan’s modus operandi is dangerous to herself and her co-workers. Have you ever thought that maybe she just wants to be the best?

Only in my dreams! It is getting late, and I may be falling asleep soon. What can possibly be waiting for me in my dreams? “Ferdie Werdie, where are you? Do you want to visit me in your dreams? I am waiting,” she says.

Ferdie Werdie, where are you?

I Wuv the hated LAKERS Again

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I am re-Posting this story from the 2013 NBA playoffs because I am worried about the retarded Pelicans going forward into the 2014 season. They have been in last place in their division for three straight years; and I predict that they will be in last place again after the 2014 season.

Ferdie@ferdiewerdie2013 Playoffs NOTE: this was posted in 2013. The LAKERS were eventually swept by the Spurs that year. However, the so-called Hornets were last in their division that year. The Pelicans were last in their division this year. The Pelicans will be last in their division forever, unless they get a new coach. I will WUV the Lakers before the Pelicans ever climb from the cellar as long as they keep this “bottom-feeder” coach.

I tweeted the below tweet before the beginning of the 2013 NBA playoffs.

@Hornets >>The doggone #Lakers have plopped their butts in a seat to the #bigdance. Plenty games are left, but they sat their big butts at the #8thSeed position for now. If these guys can hold onto a seat to the dance, I believe that they will be dangerous. Look how far they’ve come this year. UPDATE: The Lakers were NOT dangerous in the 2013 playoffs. Hahaha!

Why did I address this tweet to the Hornets? Because they have disappointed me very much this year. So, I might just become a Lakers fan for the rest of the year. What choice do I have? Also, I do not plan to wait around all off-season just to watch the Pelicans have another sub-par season next year. Which they did. LAST PLACE!!! I do not trust Hornets/Pelicans coach Monty Williams with the family jewels. His decision-making has been very suspect this year. In my opinion he is a lousy son-of-a-beoyonggg.

Thus, I will begin cheering for the dang Lakers in order for me to maintain my sanity. What could be worst? Besides that, if the Pelicans hold onto coach Monty and have another lousy year next year, I believe that it will be years before the Pelicans become truly meaningful in the NBA. I am a N’Awlins boy, but I have to respect how the Lakers slid their tails into a party seat after how their season started off. Remember that both the Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets cut their losses early in the season and hired new coaches. Now, both teams are headed to the playoffs. hahaha >>to the New Orleans HorPelicants.

My MISSION ACCOMPLISHED assistant asked me why do I doubt the Pelicans so much. “Why, darling Ferdie, do you think that the Pelicans will be bottom feeders again this season”? she asked me.

Why, Ferdie? Why?

Why, Ferdie? Why?

Me and Polite Society

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Ooops!! I meant to add my finished/polished article to the Gazette site. I accidentally reposted it here on my editor’s desk. Sorry! Now, I have to write another article here. DANGGG!! I’m tired. Be patient while I correct this unbelievable mistake. Meanwhile, I left the last few paragraphs here below just to remind you what I wrote about. Sorry!

ALRIGHT Y’ALL! UPDATE: I plan to write the next article over this weekend. Thank you!

Who in the hell thinks they can change me now.

I do not seek to run in polite society. I was a rebel since I was 2 months-old (actually realizing it only when I was 9 months-old). In the furthest reaches of my mind, I do not even much care what image my detractors have of me. I cannot concern myself with what image people want to make me into. Since before I could even hold my own baby bottle, my self-image has been similar to the likes of: the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Marlon Brando, Steve McQueen, Robert Mitchum, Paul Newman, James Bond 007. I am a card-carrying member of the likes of that group.

Jesus Christ loves me. I know that! However, one thing that I am not is a “bitch.” Ooops!! I forgot. I AM A BITCH. Sorry! In fact, I am A TOTAL BITCH! Hahaha. That does not sound right, does it? Anyway, I am not a HOE. Umm… I mean, I am not a HOE anymore.

Prioritizing my detractors, my special assistant (my Bond Girl) says:

Ferdie, honey, are you ready for your mission?
