A quick visit to New Orleans with my youngest.
We visited one of my favorite places, Bar Redux, who had held a fundraiser for myself and Charles earlier this year. We also retraced some of Trent Reznor’s steps from the early days of Nothing Studios – now a gelato store. Then we went on to find the small house we had correspondence with Trent returned from…. We picked up a couple friends, Mark and Monica, along the journey – it was like a NIN nerds Easter egg hunt! I put a card from the gelato shop into one of the cases at the museum (I can’t believe they don’t have NIN related flavors)!!
My youngest, Cole & I spent two half-days at the WW2 museum. It was impressive and a mind-boggling exhibition. One of the many veterans on hand asked a few of us if we wanted to know how it all started, and why it’s in New Orleans. It turns out, Stephen Ambrose and Nick Mueller started to collect oral histories from people (while there was still time). Each interview seemed to generate a donation of something quite rare and interesting – slowly – the collection grew into the D-Day museum in 2000, and now, the National WW2 Museum sits on over 6 acres in New Orleans.
It felt like a sign to me; there have been many over the last two years and three months. Yesterday, open houses felt really impactful to all those that attended and then hung out.
Items promised: A piece of a brick smashed by FM Einheit for the Neubauten area
Items arrived: a signed DM boot by Shirley Manson helps to fulfill the commitment to amplify the marginalized voices on display (thanks FashionNation!)
Experiences made: a father and son mix Trent singing Suck downstairs in the studio. Wonderful.
Do I think this might end up spanning 6 acres? As much as I would love a ton of extra space, that seems extreme – I do have to say though, every single one of the 60,000 miles of veins in my body is fueled each day by this place and its impact on visitors.
Lookout for some special events, releases, and all kind of stuff in the coming weeks!
As always, you can become a founder or suggest an item to donate or just visit my linktr.ee here!
