Re: “Mimi's in the Marigny suspends live music

I'll state it again "Reply to Jules".

Your only retorts are ones that insult people and call them names.

Now you accuse others of mental illness on top of that.

You're weak and it's showing.

That being said, I really don't have time for stupid people without the capacity or desire for self-examination. I've been wasting my breath and refuse to do so anymore. Also, calling you stupid is not an insult, it's just the evidence I've gathered from everything you've written. Only a stupid person would be called out for the same tactically weak behavior (name calling, insulting, etc) and do it AGAIN AND AGAIN.

Another word that comes to mind is COWARD.

BTW, Jambeaux is my pet's name. It's not that hard to figure out who I am. Well, maybe for you, my little Encyclopedia Brown. Your deductive skills don't really seem to be up to par.

At least I didn't call you deranged or sociopathic or recommend that you take medicine.

You won't hear another peep from me. I refuse to engage in this name-calling excuse for a discussion any more. You've finally brought me down to your level because it's the only sort of discourse a feeble brain like yours can understand.

I'm pretty confident that you're living the life that you deserve, and that makes me smile.

Thanks for the chuckle, sillypants.

Re: “Mimi's in the Marigny suspends live music

Yeah, I can read and comprehend. Thanks for insulting my intelligence, therefore exposing your hopelessly weak position and your disproportional sense of entitlement. I guess you're just better, richer, and smarter than me and anyone else that opposes your viewpoint.

I wholeheartedly believe that someone that has true integrity and truly feels that their position is worth defending would hide their true identity behind a made-up online moniker that is simply a reaction to another poster's comments, Reply to Jules, much like I feel that an effective argument is always achieved by name calling and insults. (I'm hoping you can understand my lowly sarcasm. I know it's beneath you, but please try to understand that I'm just a stupid New Orleanian that doesn't understand rules who would rather just go on a killing spree, espouse poverty, and dance to loud music.)

In essence, what I'm telling you is that OF COURSE YOU BELIEVE YOU'RE RIGHT, so did Joe McCarthy, Anne Lynn and Mussolini; that didn't make them empirically right. Far from it. You are so full of your own bloated conceit and sense of self-importance that you can't see the forest for the trees. Your worldview is the same one that allows systems of structure to regulate morality and it's a slippery slope.

Enjoy the ride.

You'll get exactly what you deserve.

Click the link. See the sign on the the building in the background? It says "Dancing Saturday Nights" Heck's Bar Room on the corner of Dauphine and Almonaster (now Franklin). 1954. I guess there's no precedent for music in that neighborhood, huh? And the most repugnant line from the previous poster was "Sometimes you have to follow the rules".

To that I counter, Sometimes you have to fix the "rules" that are WRONG. New Orleans will win.

Dear Reply to Jules, you just confirmed everything I wrote while equating the culture that spawned the art and beauty that makes New Orleans wonderful with crime and poverty. Gross. Your sense of entitlement well have it's comeuppance. Enjoy Peoria.

Re: “Mimi's in the Marigny suspends live music

Before I get into this, I guess I should let all of you know that...

-I'm a New Orleans native
-I grew up in the 9th ward and St. Bernard parish
-I'm in my 40's
-I'm not a vegan
-I remember the previous incarnations of Mimi's (2601/Boots and Bears) and St. Roch Tavern (Kerignac's)
-I happen to live on the same block as the St. Roch tavern (in fact, growing up I had Red Beans and Rice every Monday 3 doors down from there.)

Firstly, all of this "more New Orleans than thou" b.s. is embarrassing. None of y'all were in the Marigny 30 years ago, plain and simple. It was populated by poor people, mostly people of color and latinos (like me). We never heard "The Smiths" in the 8th/9th ward before you people showed up. Yes, I said "you people". Every one of you that brought property there in the last 20-30 years got super cheap under-valued property, and then you started a campaign to make the neighborhood what YOU wanted because you had the class privilege to do so.

This is analysis, not name calling, to be clear.

Let me get further into my analysis and note that every time Jules Bentley brought up a point, there seemed to be whole gang of y'all that disagreed with his views that quickly resorted to name calling. Weak.

I completely understand that y'all don't like the same music that these bars play late at night. That seems horribly oppressive. Y'all go on to validate your taste in music and refinement which only goes on to prove your skewed sense of entitlement, all the while persisting in your name-calling and anonymous bashing IN AN ONLINE FORUM. Your behavior is puerile at best, pathetic at worst.

You know what I miss most in the downtown neighborhood? Block parties. Friendly neighbors. An understanding that even if we didn't like the late night music that some people chose to blast we realized that "Hey, it's just a few hours on the weekend". Or, "Hey, that music sucks, but those people seem to be having fun." This type "Live and let live" worldview has been replaced with a NIMBY attitude that is absolutely disheartening. The isolationism of these modern downtown neighborhoods are killing what made New Orleans unique and are directly tied in to the gentrification of these neighborhoods.

Sadly, more havoc is being wreaked on the social fabric of NOLA than any hurricane or flood could have ever done. I hope y'all are happy in the new, boring, milquetoast version of New Orleans that you're creating where second line vendors need permits and bars are forced to shut down early and no go-cups are permitted.

When you wake up in Peoria, don't blame me. I'll be with the rest of the New Orleanians creating something new somewhere else because you stole this from us.
