so we've got a house. it barely qualifies as such. there is a roof. and a door that locks. we have a room with some beds that IS INSULATED with AC (wow). we have some couches and some beds. One of us lives in a shipping container. we have holes in the floor. we have room for your tent. we now have an outdoor shower and a flush toilet. we have electricity but there aint all that much. THIS IS NOT AN AIRBnB. this is roughin' it, this is the edge, the bottom, the strange and the bizarre. we have dogs. most of my roommates are animals, though they pretend to humanity. this is not the bywater. this is not hyland park. this is the gritty part of new orleans. there are potholes and there is poverty. life ain't no fairytale in the upper ninth ward, kids. we like it that way.
Our house is IN THE WORKS and as such we are constantly working on it. we ask that you help us out on whatever projects we're working on. there are many projects at hand and depending on who you are, you could be working on any one of them. gardeners landscapers carpenters tree climbers roofers sculptors fountain builders wheelspinners chefs de cuisine storeytellers magicians painters dishwashers jugglers and people of any skill or persuasion are always welcome. what we value most is not any skill, but a willingness to help out. aimless drunks and wimps need not apply. Your mother cannot stay here. If this sounds about right, we would love it if you would come help us build our kingdom of dreams here in new orleans. we dont ask that you work nine to five everyday. we usually have one all day work day a week, and on other days there may be chores or there may not. usually not.
We have a quiver of bikes for you to borrow, being as bicycles are the best way to get around this beautiful city. We reclaim all our food and so it's all free for whoever wants. We know a lot about this city, and we like to have a good time. a really good time. come on.
