Y@ Speak: AirBnBey

Posted By on Mon, May 9, 2016 at 5:30 PM

New Orleans debates Airbnb, worships at the altar of Beyonce and throws a party celebrating our crumbling infrastructure — because everything is such a silly goof in this magical town made of dreams that even the mayor had an "only in New Orleans" take. More from this week on Twitter: Sean Payton in seersucker, because horses/wealth:

Y@ Speak: purple rained out

Posted By on Mon, May 2, 2016 at 4:05 PM

After you wash off the Patient Zero-level disease you collected from the musical horse river, let's look at some holes! Massive, people- and car-eating holes sprouting across the city like nightmare moles forecasting some kind of apocalypse or the earth's reclamation of our devil town — that's just so NOLA.

Also: meet a racist deputy!

Y@ Speak: pregaming

Posted By on Mon, Apr 18, 2016 at 7:15 PM

Glen David Andrews began the week with a call to action in the wake of Will Smith's death, and New Orleans answered. Also in this quiet ruining of a frat guy's week: : Inspector Gadget, jedi and lethal caterpillars are among us, presumably to enjoy the sights and sounds of Jazz Fest from a folding chair where you can neither see nor hear while blocking my way to a sun-roasted port-o-let.

Y@ Speak: endangered species

Posted By on Mon, Apr 4, 2016 at 6:45 PM

Dear Bird Lover Basketball Fan:

Our Pelicans need your help. One by one, these men are forced to wear suits and sit down instead of running for a few hours in their natural habitat: shiny, shiny wood in multimillion dollar state-of-the-art arenas. Please, think of the bird men.

Y@ Speak: Gleesus

People were rude to the multimillion dollar TV show! Sad! Why can't everyone just respect the major network that gets a free pass to block traffic downtown for a weekend while continuing a post-Katrina "resurrection" narrative?  #NotAllMusicals!

Also this week: Big Freedia, St. Joseph's altars, Super Sunday, a floating ant pile and a grim entry in #NOLAscanner history.

Y@ Speak: "Buku feast"

Posted By on Mon, Mar 14, 2016 at 3:45 PM


Cheesecake aficionado Future can't get food off his mind.

Uncontested for several years, the #NOLAscanner hashtag for local police scanner coverage — a veritable gold mine of the city's diverse and imaginative criminal activity and children who refuse who go to school — has a critical rival: Jefferson Parish.

Also in this week's edition: collard greens and corn bread with Big Freedia and Friends at the 2016 Buku Music + Art Project, emerging from the 311 Day vape cloud, updates from the New Orleans Saints, and a look at some of the flooding around Louisiana.

It's The Best, Greatest Y@ Speak, OK?

Posted By on Mon, Mar 7, 2016 at 3:15 PM

Donald Trump gets a warm New Orleans welcome and Louisiana voters head to the polls and to #ProTip election day hacker Chris Rose. Also: the earth's days are numbered as #NOLAscanner gets climax-of-Ghostbusters-level strange.
