Among the living

1. Juvenile loses house, urges Red Cross donations:
Teruis Gray, aka Juvenile, was not in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit. His home was located near the water on Lake Pontchartrain, in St. Tammany Parish in the city of Slidell. New Orleans' neighbor to the east, Slidell was crossed by the eye of the hurricane, and Juvenile lost his house and all of his possessions. The multi-platinum rapper grew up in the Magnolia Projects in the center of New Orleans, and he has always been a New Orleans resident. His parents also live in New Orleans, and he has over 200 relatives in the area. The locations of many of his family members are still unknown, and only about half of them were able to get out before the hurricane arrived.
2. Also, got word back from Mr. Quintron & Miss Pussycat's publicist, sounds like they lost everything (the Spellcaster Lodge was in the 9th ward, which is like totally submerged), official press release coming soon:

"Good news is that they both managed to get out of New Orleans in safe time with
their instruments. The fall tour is still happening, as you can imagine, the music is all they really have now so anything we can all do to make this album a success will go a long way."
3. Quintron & Pussycat have new album and tour hits Middle East November 10, two days after his neigbor plays the Gahhhden. Trent left the following on the NIN site:
"I'm truly at a loss for words right now. To see a place you love and have spent a good portion of your life in destroyed . . . is overwhelming. My heart goes out to everyone involved in this. Please help if you can. I'll have more to say when this sinks in."

4. It was only a matter of time until somebody blogged it. Symphonic version is a little much, though.
