In northwest Louisiana, one of America’s weirdest communities is actually closer to Texas and Arkansas than it is to New Orleans. There’s still plenty of Cajun flavor in the mini twin cities of Shreveport-Bossier, but there’s also a lot of other stuff you won’t find down in NOLA, including the annual Shreveport Zombie Walk, meat-filled “muffy” sandwiches at Fertitta’s, and the Touchstone Wildlife and Art Museum — a family-owned roadside attraction devoted to the fine art of taxidermy.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
