And then there was a Nola.com parade cam... sort of
~Editilla loves a parade cam and commentary.
Last night's 1st up with Oshun sucked marbles from nola.com.
When they finally did get some audio, we had to endure Dude talking about his dry-cleaning career as floats and bands rolled by without description. Yeah, the dumbass was talking about Dry-Cleaning School in Silver Springs, Maryland. No shit! The Nice Lady commentator at least named a few floats and bands, but the down-take is this: shut your yappers and talk about the parades and your relationship to Mardi Gras.
That said, it was fun to follow the duo's Twitter live exchanges with people watching the parade locally (-: such as Youses' Truly: the Troublemaker ;-) and from around the country. It should be noted that these aren't TV people @ nola.com, so their technical dexterity isn't perhaps congroovient with Live Video Coverage. We hope they fix the technical problems. As for the inane banter...
WWLTV Parade Cam unfortunately covers only 1 parade at a time until Mardi Gras day, but that is good, and MG day's coverage is exquisite, all over the parade route. They are the ones to watch for The Rex Toast and Zulu.
