pissed off

Sorry if this is a compare and contrast exercise but I’m really not used to ashtrays everywhere. And this total lack of hipsters is unnerving. I’m at a coffee shop AND NOT ONE PERSON HAS A MACBOOK!! IT’S A SEA OF DELLS AND TOSHIBAS!!! (if I could make these caps even more capped I would stress the toshiba)

I got thrown out of Iggys, the bar above, for talking about drugs to a fag! (who told the owner, who asked me to leave). If you can’t sit in front of a bar getting drunk while a gay man dressed in a roman toga asks you about your shoes while other drunks are inside playing video poker and talk about drugs, what kind of weird line has been drawn in the New Orleans Parish sand? It’s like East Germany where you can’t even trust your family. A forty year old alcoholic telling on me because I wanted to get high? This is a serious stain on the city.

Sure, it’s a beautiful city. I love that cats are lounging under trees and scooting under fences everywhere. The amount of wrought iron fences and finials is probably responsible for the slow sinking of the city. The crooked old front doors and long planks warped from age give the homes an approachable old friend appeal. But I prefer getting kicked out of bars for actions not words. Like riding a motorcycle inside. Biting the bartender. Throwing up on the pool table. Okay. Ask me to leave. I get it. But this is injustice.


  1. I KNOW you’ve gotten thrown out for way better reasons!!!!

  2. Drag. i should’ve clicked on your site earlier. I’m from Louisiana. You could’ve headed up to Shreveport and visited my mom at her Subway. She would’ve been like, “You’s a tall white boy, but any friend of Eb’s…” Then she would’ve fed you free food and asked you to paint her house or do some form of manual labor on her property. Although I haven’t spoken to her in over a year and vowed never to do so as long as I draw breath on this earth, a progress report would have still been nice.

    Oh well. Hope you’re doing OK, Rolston.

    I’m interviewing Gus Van Sant and James Franco in the morning for that new film about Harvey Milk. Gus is the reason why I went to film school. I will try not to cry when I meet him.
