I wound up on 2906 Washington Ave,right by this big park where all the Rocker Kids got drunk on weekends... i could hear 'em late at night as i tried to sleep!It was also pretty bitchin' to go to the beach and on one side of the horizon see oil torches and on the other see big cranes and Nuclear subs! I never realized Trent Lott lived on that same street, no wonder i'm being followed by the government,hahaha!
I lived in Pascagoula from birth till 14,when my family moved to Gulfport to be closer to my Dad's job (and his relatives),so any info on what to do there is probably out of date.Then again,getting drunk is timeless,so is going to either Biloxi/Gulfport,Mobile/PCola or NO for a more "Big City" experience,so if you have a car you know the drill...
Actually,i share an affection for the Goula that borders on unreasonable!Apart from the knucklehead locals,i really dug the industrial bent of the town's aesthetic (Shipyard,Oil Refinery,Paper Mill,Cat Food Factory)mixed with the marshes and general Southern overgrowth of moss, trees and Kudzu.Add a lack of pick up after any hurricane and youv'e got yerself a little town that looks downright POST-APOCALYPTIC!I still have dreams about hangin' there!
Of course,i've been told that it's "changed",which probably means it's been gentrified,just like everywhere else! i'm kinda scared to go back,esp. after seeing what's happened to Gulfport and Biloxi in recent years!I'm sure it's been strip malled out,just like those places...
The Chicken Box started on the main drag of Market St.,it got trashed by a Hurricane and was take out only until we moved it to a restaurant on Chico Rd.,where it remained until it closed.
There are many fine facts about Human Garbage Disposal(and Pascagoula) on the web at firstname.lastname@example.org....GO PANTHERS! (or did i go to OLV? Such a blur,those daze...)
