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.

RicDelgadoRocks After today's twitter beatdown, I unwind by listening to a girl blowing smoke rings out of her vagina on the Howard Stern Show.

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?

this is terrible, no doubt, but i have to admit my second thought was "these are the shitbags now taking beer money out pf my pocket."

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.

So he's supposedly daring people to write in and get him fired...

@tess_rae
@RicDelgadoRocks @ariellec not really clear on how you can say this is a good piece while continuing to defend all you wrote.

In another response, he told a woman she "must be single" for calling him out.

I appreciate you thinking there was a first time. RT @heycalliejoy: @RicDelgadoRocks, also, good luck getting laid ever again.

he should have to spend the rest of his life w that article stapled to his clothes.

"maybe you've heard of me? i wrote that thing about adele's kankles. i'm kind of a big deal."

now that they've caught the rogue blogger, I'm sure the New Times will never post another offensive, inane listicle again

da croupier, Thursday, 26 April 2012 17:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

that piece is good and all the points are OTM and i understand why a woman would want to write it but i guess i find slightly regrettable that neither the male writer of the piece nor the male editor of the paper decided to write that piece -- it sorta reinforces the lasting message of "hey, we're sorry that we offended you, but WE don't think we did anything wrong"

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2012 17:28 (1 year ago) Permalink

also how the hell was this published by a female section editor smh

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 April 2012 17:28 (1 year ago) Permalink

She probably thought it was going to generate a lot of hits so she didn't care about the content being offensive.

@ariellec if comedians concerned themselves with the people that got offended then there'd be no Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Louie CK, etc.

am0n, Thursday, 26 April 2012 19:11 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah, i'm pretty much over the sexism thing and more pissed that he sees himself as following in the footsteps of louis ck and richard pryor

All of those comedians concerned themselves meticulously with the people they were offending, tho
