Y@ Speak: hurricane season

Posted By on Mon, Jun 6, 2016 at 5:35 PM

As the Louisiana Legislature turns into "that season of an animated series they had to finish in Korea"-level collapse, we brace for the beginnings of hurricane season, a time to horde water and chips like we're all your prepper uncle.

Y@ Speak: "satire"

Posted By on Mon, May 23, 2016 at 5:25 PM

Last week delivered us a crash course in nonapologies, from state Rep. Kenneth "It Was Satire" Havard's unapologetic sexism to Bayou Boogaloo's Fence-pot Dome Scandal (can we start that instead of adding "gate" to any minor controversy). Also this week: ... what if termites adapted to eat people?

Y@ Speak: termite life

Posted By on Mon, May 16, 2016 at 2:50 PM

It's that time of year when 87 percent of New Orleans is just 100 pounds of termites shaped into people. They're among us — in line at the bank, sipping a beer at the bar, in a pile of their dead friends under your living room lamp. If you survived the recent swarms, here's your week: killer strawberries, medical marijuana, and hey, the state budget was figured out in time so our legislators could be home for Scandal.

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: "shocked, crushed and broken"

Posted By on Mon, Apr 11, 2016 at 2:05 PM

New Orleans and former Saints teammates mourn the loss of Will Smith, who was killed late Saturday night.

Also in this week's edition: bread wars, French Quarter Fest, monuments and bags of caterpillars.
