Y@ Speak: crime time

Posted By on Mon, Jul 10, 2017 at 5:36 PM

Crime is at the focus of the State of the City, demonstrators are arrested at Sen. Bill Cassidy's office for protecting their health care, and Sen. John Neely Kennedy wants to use stop and frisk. Also: Rep. Clay Higgins goes on the worst field trip, Jrue Holiday is still a Pelican, and clueless Pink Floyd fans need a safe space.

Everyone's favorite New Orleans Pelican, Anthony Davis, was a guest last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the very first question was "How tall are you?" Kimmel even brought out a supersized yardstick to make the official measurement.

Davis was charming and a good sport about the whole thing. Watch:

Y@ Speak: Hey now, you're an all star. Guy Fieri? Pa-rades.

Posted By on Mon, Feb 20, 2017 at 4:32 PM

As the corporate-branded fog over the French Quarter begins to clear, we find a graveyard of Popeyes boxes, broken beads and daiquiri-clutching partiers waking from the peaceful slumber that follows a week of near-belligerence to news that Boogie is coming to New Orleans. Also this week: The Hot Boys reunite... with Guy Fieri, and Master P transcends incredible levels of petty over the Falcons' loss in the Super Bowl.

Y@ Speak: banned

Posted By on Mon, Jan 30, 2017 at 7:30 PM

From "sanctuary cities" to "extreme vetting," New Orleans responds to Week One in the Trump Era.

Also: a new surveillance plan and "3 a.m." rule, King Cake Baby leans into the whole "giant monster" thing, and Jazz Fest flips its "people complaining about Jazz Fest" switch.

Y@ Speak: health caring

Last week in Twitter: The battle for health care, the ballad of King Cake Baby, Mississippi being supremely Mississippi, and resistance in the days before the Trump era.

Did the Pelicans poach the King Cake Baby Twitter account?

Who is King Cake Baby? What is King Cake Baby? I first watched King Cake Baby at a then-New Orleans Hornets game, racing around the court on a Razor scooter, a Carnivalesque ghoul of a babylike manthing with a permanently open-mouthed grin. The intentionally designed horrorshow of a second tier mascot was revealed in 2015 to be an Old World-inspired marionette-like creation (named, in its tragic birth, "Babycakes"), and its viral nightmare was no accident.

Aside from the online townspeople killing it with fire, the actual King Cake Baby lived a relatively quiet life on the internet. (Even in public, it's more of a shy Burger King "Sneak King" but one that's very much a baby.) Deadspin, SB Nation, Bleacher Report and dozens of writers and blogs happily ruined everyone's days with playful screeds against the biggest baby in basketball.

Meanwhile, a one-year-old @KingCakeBaby account gently gave a voice to the giant baby. The man behind @KingCakeBaby was ESPN/TrueHoop's Bourbon Street Shots writer Mason Ginsberg. It had a modest following, with a big boost leading up to Carnival (and after a retweet from ESPN's Zach Lowe). But just days after the beginning of 2017's Carnival season — following a viral Uber king cake delivery to begin the annual season of terror for a reawakened King Cake Baby — the account was suspended. Ginsberg was locked out of the account. All of @KingCakeBaby's tweets disappeared.

Y@ Speak: debatable

Posted By on Mon, Sep 26, 2016 at 6:38 PM


Remember 20 years ago when you tweeted about Disney's gumbo recipe? This week's edition spans a little longer than usual because we missed you last week. But this past week? I don't have enough fingers to chef kiss. David Duke looked like the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Beyonce and Big Freedia are the only people that New Orleans fans are happy about playing in the Superdome so far this month, and we begin the inaugural Complaining About the Fried Chicken Festival.
