TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY HIPSTER MARDI GRAS MORNING PARADE!!!



Kansas City artists, hipsters and all the cool kids kicked-off Mardi Gras with their annual celebratory parade on this cold-ass morning.

We raced out of the basement just to capture the moment with a few pix . . .



As always, the mood was light and rather awesome among this crew of merrymakers . . . And yes, that is probably Peregrine Honig in the crowd.

Here's a quick clip . . .



TV Newsies . . . Feel free to borrow and/or salvage anything you can use from this clip . . . I'm going to make sure my Obamacare is in good standing because I was outside in a skull cap and boxers capturing this Kansas City breaking news . . .



Still . . . This is an important look at Kansas City's arts community in action and enjoying the rather KICK-ASS festivities that are spiking Crossroads Westside real estate prices and creating another Downtown Renaissance even before the toy train takes off.

"Welcome to the Obamacare Buyers Club."

Where, becuase you didn't get to keep your fuckin doctor, hospital and sure as fucking hell didn't get to keep your health plan, when you go out into the cold to see Peregrine and get pneumonia and a sucking chest wound from a "scholar", you will have to scrounge around in your cabinet for asprin and find a cork from a nice Chianti to stick between your ribs to stem the blood flow.

Was (Blue Springs Resident) Theresa Garza's daughter there turning tricks in New Orleans fashion?

You know you should not play up the fact that TGR's daughter was whoring in Cali because there are lots of whores in this town and they all have mothers which in a city council election might be enough to get a candidate into a run off.

What does it say about a woman who rears a daughter to become a harlot?

Only in a bush league town like KC can a group of about 30 people in costumes be called a parade.
Hope they taped it to show the Republicans!
World class.

The so called artists was probably just a bunch of drunk gay leftovers from heavy drinking at Missie B's last night into early this morning. I bet if you look closer you could pick out Glazer dressed in black face.

Gay people sure do some strange things. This may be the next big thing in KC. Tony, you are definitely a trend promoter. (giggle)

What the fuck is wrong with you people in Kansas City? That's not a parade. That's a bunch of drunks dressed in disco outfits from their parents wardrobe of the 70's. These so called artists and un-employed drunks from Missy B's gay and lesbian pajama party.

@3/4/14, 9:26 AM Correction... White people love Kansas City because they mostly live in suburban areas that is NOT Kansas City proper. Anytime, folks from Leawood, South Overland Park and all the rest think that Kansas City is the best STAYcation they've ever, you know its nothing more than disillusioned, broke-assed White people.

Too old for Byron. He only goes up to about 10. Says they tell him that he's too big. Imagine that. Only time 3 inches is too big.

Hey Bean Boi, boxers and skull cap is TMI for even this blog. That is a picture you could use at Gitmo as torture material. I guess it's that Westport Hip hopper thing. You pick that up from KJ or Techie9?

"Walking to New Orleans" is a 1960 song by Bobby Charles, written for and recorded by Fats Domino.

Domino was a hero of Charles. Domino had previously recorded the Charles tune "Before I Grow Too Old". When Domino stopped on tour in Lafayette, Louisiana, he invited Charles into his dressing room, and regretted he didn't have a copy of his new record to give to Charles, but invited Charles to come visit him in Domino's home of New Orleans. Charles replied, "I don't have a car. If I'd go, I'd have to walk." Afterwards, the thought remained on Charles's mind, and he said he wrote the song for Domino in some 15 minutes.

After he got to New Orleans to accept Domino's invitation, Charles sang "Walking to New Orleans" for Domino. Domino was enthusiastic about the number and made a few modifications to it, including adding a quote from his earlier hit, "Ain't That A Shame". Dave Bartholomew made an orchestration for the backup band, and Domino with Bartholomew and band recorded it in Cosimo Matassa's studio on Rampart Street.
