The Carpet Bloggers Cometh…

1938 Media had an interesting post about our probs down here. I was in total support until I read a comment from the author:

You’re supposed to be angry Mr. Angry. I don’t give two shits about any of the New Orleans bloggers. I actually have told them to piss off before. They are elitist assholes. An echo chamber of self pity and desperation. Look at me, notice me. They are not the voice of New Orleans.

Who the fuck are the voices of New Orleans? Her people, not those shits from the North with their god-damned attitudes. We hold each other in our arms to keep them going. We try to help each other get through the coming day. When I walk the streets I hold my head high and dream of the future. There may be tears coming from my eyes from what I see, but I stand erect, not beaten down. Our city will recover. I do my job as a New Orleanian.
Any asshole that wants to come down here for a few days and then write what they think is reality is totally deluded. We freakin’ live here day to day. Our hands extend to those with a Thousand Mile Stare. We commiserate and jolly each other to keep spirits alive. We give a shit about each other.

Loren, if you actually come down here, I’m gonna tar and feather your ass. And no… there will be no beads. 1938 Media? Frack me! Bunch of effette poops. You are all “artistes” right? Screw you.

The NOLA Bloggers are some of the most genuine people I have ever met, and I’ve been halfway around the World twice. You don’t give two shits about them? You are a deluded freakin’ soul. You aren’t worth the landfill it would take to cover your corpse. Live in your fantasy-land, we down here in the disaster called New Orleans live a real life, and we understand what it’s worth. For you, it’s just a video clip.

Come on down baby… I’m gonna teach you reality, and it ain’t gonna be pretty. Maybe I’ll drag your ass to a Blogger meeting, and then you will understand who we are. Shit-head fool.


  1. My sentiments exactly!

    (Well, not exactly, because you conveyed it much more creatively than I ever could. Well done!)

  3. Anyone who comes against my people are toast. No one fucks with the people of New Orleans, at least not on my watch.

    I am the bitch from Hell.

  4. How can 100 New Orleans bloggers be wrong? Also, he condenses the list down to a fake three, as if we are only allowed a limited number of problems. Black on black crime is a fallout of a larger set of problems – lack of education, sex education, self-esteem and job growth.

    Another great way to get rid of black on black crime is not to fix the levees and restore the coast. Ain’t no intra-racial crime, or much of anything else, when the city is underwater again.

    I am Kali incarnate – don’t anyone make me pull out my necklace of skulls.

  5. Great post. You wrote: “We give a shit about each other.” I just want to let you know that there are some of us outside of LA that give a shit about you, too. And not all of us presume to have the answers to problems we cannot fully comprehend because we are not living it with you.

  6. This I know hon, this I do know. It’s one of the few things that give us along the Coast the strength to forge forward.
