I started writing The Whispers in 2000, after one of many over-dramatic crush on girl friend situation.

The Whispers came out of me faster than anything else

this is total BS but

Sarcasm doesn't always come across in writing, and it certainly didn't in this post. I get why commenters below called this "the most insulting thing on the Internet," and that's why it has been removed. New Times regrets the offense we've caused and hopes you'll stick with us in our next attempt at sarcasm. -- Eric Barton

hahaha wait, their retraction basically states "sorry for offending you but that was sarcastic; we'd never sleep with these fat women"????????????

i'm not sure which is worse: the editor implying that no male at the broward new time would dare fuck a fat woman or that he thinks we can't take 3 minutes and look at ric delgado's archive to find a host of other, non-"sarcastic" posts

unless ric cordero never actually beat it to "rump shaker", but i don't think that's possible

I realized a year ago that I didn’t want to be a stuffy writer, blogger, or journalist, asking questions like:

“What has Miami done for your writing? What do you think of Vice City?”

5 Questions with JJ Colagrande, REVMiami.com, March 31, 2010

How boring is that? Now, new and improved Ric Delgado writer, asks questions like:

“I’m required to ask you questions about Miami, so have you ever done cocaine off a stripper’s thigh, then had to hide a dead body in the Everglades?”

Nikki Glaser Jokes About A Lot of Messed Up Stuff at Miami Science Museum, Miami New Times, April 12, 2012

Bam! Now that’s a question.

puff puff post (uh oh I'm having a fantasy), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 21:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

To further my writing career, I knew I had to interject a lot more of my personality into my writing. And I think I’ve been doing that pretty damn well.

But, as a writer, particularly for a local Miami blog, there is a gigantic flaw in my plan to become rich and famous: NOBODY READS IN THIS CITY!

Yes, it is the sad and pathetic truth, but Miami dun’t reed too goods.

that really seems like a trick that loses a lot without the visual component

i emailed the editor he emailed he back. his response:

Jordan,

Sorry you feel that way. I wonder what kind of apology you'd suggest instead.

Best,

xp How about one that doesn't shift blame to the reader for not getting the intended "sarcasm" and one that includes the bit about how Ric Delgado's submissions will no longer be welcome by any outlet of the New Times corp?

Where are Delgado's friends in all this? Why are they letting him watch so many Tosh.0 reruns?

I don't think he has friends, unless you count realdolls.

If she can't be bothered to say anything beyond "no comment" then I doubt there's much anyone else can do. maybe the threat of legal action would focus her mind.

its a little late for it to happen. how many publishers would want to retroactively put out a book that was timed to be released the way those books were.

I figured. Hopefully anther publisher picks up the series at some point, but that's probably unlikely to happen either after all this.
