    What Really Happened in Houston at Bayou City

    in Art

    As the new interim executive director took on the reins at the Bayou City Art Festival in Houston late last year, it became apparent to Susan Fowler that the organization was stretched beyond financial viability. This is a festival that depends on an admission charge that had been negatively impacted by the weather.


    Four festivals back to back with rain had drained their savings  that were in fact a literal rainy day fund because the Bayou City Art Festivals are outdoor events. 


    The Art Colony Association, which hosts the Bayou City shows, needed to do something fast to keep the popular festivals alive and well.


    When the Board of the Art Colony met in January they put the wheels in motion to expand the event from 300 artists to 450 artists plus several other changes that they hoped would lead to financial stability.


    We'll be speaking with the Executive Director Susan Fowler and Operations Director Kelly Kindred to learn 



    how a board of directors oversees an organization and its' fiscal responsibility 
    how the decision to increase the size of the show was made
    how they went about implementing the Board's decisions
    how important are booth fees to a show
    other sources of funding a non-profit event
    how successful were the changes that they made to the Spring show
    what they learned from this experience
    what to expect next from this festival

    1997’s “Eve Bayou” Over the course of a long, hot Louisiana summer, a 10-year-old black girl, Eve Batiste (Jurnee Smollett), discovers that her family's affluent existence is merely a facade. The philandering of her suave doctor father, Louis (Samuel L. Jackson), creates a rift, throwing Eve's mother, Roz (Lynn Whitfield), and teenage sister, Cisely (Meagan Good), into emotional turmoil. Eve, though, manages to find some solace with her quirky psychic aunt, Mozelle (Debbi Morgan).

    Filmmakers Bayou Bennet and Daniel Lir

    in Entertainment

    The dream [writing/director] team of Bayou Bennett and Daniel Lir was born on a summer day in 2007 when Bayou Bennett met Daniel Lir at a vegetarian café on the Lower East Side in Manhattan. The couple instantly connected with unbelievable synergy and created a hilarious hit film, “Text Me” which captured the “texting generation.” The award-winning short got them the attention of ad agencies and deals from the Hollywood Film Industry alike.
    The couple now continues to passionately create on their writing/directing partnership giving birth to innovative films, music videos and commercials through their L.A. based company, Dolce Films.
    Their motto “Let our dream team manifest your dream” has allowed them to work with some of the highest profile and most ininfluential companies in the industry. Lending themselves to smart, hip, imaginative and culturally significant work, their commercials, music videos and films have garnered prestigious awards. As filmmakers they strive to create projects that audiences will always remember, identify with and want to watch again and again, just like the films of their icons that range from Tim Burton to Federico Fellini to John Hughes.
    In this show, both Bayou and Daniel will be talking with us, bringing us a very exciting interview!

    From The Benches: Blowout in the Bayou

    in Football

    The show is back and better than ever after the Packers suffer a bad loss before their bye week. Jacob remains the host of the show, but has some subs for his usual co-hosts. Jason Perone of AllGBP.com joins the show in addition to Jacob's brother Adam.


    The show begins with a discussion of the Aaron Rodgers injury that came as an even bigger downside to an abysmal night on the defensive side of the ball. There is also a discussion about the defense's complete collapse in New Orleans, before going into the bye.
    Then the guys go behind the bench and discuss how they assess the Packers at this point in the season, and if that has changed since the beginning of the year with their expectations.


    Following that a discussion breaks out about what was encouraging, and discouraging throughout the game, before a preview of the Packers November opponents, and a prediction of what their record will be in those four games.


    An unfortunate discussion emerges just before the end of the show when the guys pick the worst Packers showing in the Mike McCarthy/Ted Thompson era, with a few surprises along the way before Jacob has some words for Coach McCarthy's management of the game in New Orleans in the show's signature segment You're gonna want to cut that.
