It’s like 7 or some such bullshit time I shouldn’t be awake at. Heading to get the AC fixed in the car. It’s steamy and we’re set to break every hot weather record again this year. Don’t believe in global warming move to the south.

Dawn and I went for a bike ride last night and since I got a new phone. I just took the iPhone the new one has a pretty awesome camera.

Even though it’s hot as hell, fun must be had at all costs.

Until next time.

Full Album

Dawn was at a wedding so i ventured out into the bunchy this year on my own. On my way out the door I spied a familiar face across the street. It was my friend Dre from NYC.


He had no idea i was living in New Orleans, i had no idea he was here to visit the city. So i took him under my bunny wing and threw a pair of ears on him and told him to follow me. The rest is a blur of excitement, bunnies, friends, drinks, and stories told way past our bedtimes. Read the rest of this entry »

Comments Off on Fumbo 8

Dawn and I got an invite we couldn’t resist from an old friend to come up to NYC this weekend and attend FUMBO 8, the only film festival that doesn’t suck. Below is our video and below that are photos from our trip.

Halloween Weekend NOLA 2014 from Eli Mergel on Vimeo.

We made all kinds of plans to film something for fumbo but we ran out of time and went to voodoofest instead. Deal with it.

So this will be slightly out of order, Ill post some voodoofest photos later but I figure since I cover voodoo fest and krewe of boo in the video its ok.
