Moving to New Orleans

Open my eyes

See freedom in front of me,

Humidity and knowledge given for free.

I was the story of suburban man,

I was ignorance

I was in shadow

I did despair.

But knowledge is freely given

To those who seek it without fear.

And ignorance can be cured,

Once in darkness,

I now dwell in day.

Despair turns to understanding,

And my petty worries,

Superstitions and dogmas,

All may fade away.


New Orleans gives her knowledge,

To all those brave and open enough to seek it.

“This is what it means to live freely!”

Can’t you hear the city speak it?


In all her parades, her culture

The food, the music, the people.

New Orleans is an international Church

And the French Quarter is her steeple.

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
Big Easy Magazine
