Dream Log: 9-23-15–My Scene. MINE!

9-23-15 11.54am The dream opens, and I’m shooting the breeze with Ken, LSU coach Les Miles and Todd Graves, founder of Raising Cane’s. We were at the RiverCenter, resembling the Superdome, filming “in-studio” segments for MyScene TV. Naturally, we were waiting on our reporter, who’s often late. Todd stepped out for a bit, which led … Continue reading Dream Log: 9-23-15–My Scene. MINE!

Javan Does Baton Rouge — Red Beans @ The Roux House

For nearly two years, I've hosted #JavanDoesBatonRouge right here on my website. But now as a broadcaster, it only made sense to bring the blog to video, something I'll call a "community broadcast." Same theme, same purpose, #JDBR remains my own little way of exploring my home of ten years--a booming city I long overlooked. I have … Continue reading Javan Does Baton Rouge — Red Beans @ The Roux House

Baton Rouge; The South’s Barcelona

The Urban Revolutionary

Yeah, I know, all my post up until know have been about Baton Rouge. Don’t worry there will be post that branch out, but I’m someone who likes to focus on solving problems or celebrating positives for the places I’m in. Right now I live in Baton Rouge and so my post will primarily focus on solving greater urban problems, but using Baton Rouge as a primary subject.

For close to half a year I have lived in this fantastic city recently catapulted to national attention with the high successful Miss USA 2014 Pageant. In that space of time I have fallen in love with this city and will certainly continue to visit it after I leave. The people are very friendly and kind, they take pride in their city and culture. It’s something very unique and special.

It’s it’s atmosphere that truly makes it a shinning gem in a…

The Sights and Sounds of Downtown Baton Rouge

The Urban Revolutionary

A few weeks ago I was at the Old State Capitol with some friends from Tampa. In case you are unfamiliar with Baton Rouge’s downtown, their convention center or River-center is located next to the Town Square, City Hall, 19th Judicial Court House, Shaw Center for the Arts, and the Gothic revival Old State capitol (where we started our tour). Now I have been into this area of the city before, alas, not expecting much I did not bring my camera. However, after the first trip I realized that this area had a lot more then I expected and from then on out I vowed to bring my camera the next opportunity I had.

To put it in short “The opportunity was there” as my friend would say. So after our tour was complete I decided to walk around the area and took pictures. This post will mainly be filled with…
