    It sounded like a man with an accent.

    What does it have to do with where you want to live? You don't like people with accents? You don't want to live around people with regional accents? You're in Florida, right? There are no accents there?

    Yeah, I hate good food, good music, vibrant culture, and things that are different too.

    That was a quick edit...

    Yes there are many accents here, but not ones that sound as lazy as that mans accent...

    He was the closest real life version to the guy from all the Adam Sandler movies ive ever heard.

    He's got an accent:cool: Not to mention the fact 80% of his income is derived from fishing off those waters, all he's asking to do is be able to help out. And he's not too happy with BP, one would be hard-pressed to disagree with him.

    I love NOLA, its people, its culture, its music, its live and let live attitude, its food and just about everything else.. have been there for the last 4 Mardi Gras and am going back again this year.

    When I flew down this year, had a layover in the Memphis Airport, and as we were waiting a man sat down next to me from Memphis reading a John Grisham book I read. A "conversation ensued" and we soon came to realize that we spent more time interpreting what each other said, than conversing.. so we agreed to quit.

    The accent in the caption is bayou.. the impact will be catastrophic..

    Honestly I think the food is average... The music is indeed good, and surprisingly, the musicians that come from that area, don't slur their accent as much as the man in that clip...

    So many people embracing accents, it's great. I thought we'd never get back to this point after all the venom for Palin.

    I would say you do not know where to eat.. the regional food is beyond good, the music is great.. but you have to get off of Bourbon St.

    Last year after the Sunday nite parade went to a party in someone's backyard, and there was a "Pretenders" cover band.. Brass In Pocket and all. The neighbourhood was crowded as most are in NOLA.. they started @ 9:30 PM and played until 11:00 PM.. no neighbours complained, it was a very cool experience.. cannot imagine that happening in a New England Neighbourhood.

    Funny you say that... I was both there, and used to have a thick accent.

    Again, the bostonian accent is only the A's... as in "pawk the caa". BAd, yes, but the man in the clip, every single word was a lazy interpretation of the real word...

    Oh, obviously this message board has way to much twists in their panties these days to poke a little fun at people on the internet... sigh...

    Will do when I'm not at work. The last time I was in New Orleans on the first night my GF and saw Ellis Marsalis at Snug Harbor after a great meal. Later on we caught a jazz/marching band style band in a hole in the wall - they were great musicians and practically high schoolers. Great experience.

    Yeah, clearly the issue people had w/Palin was her accent.

    Funny, too, that you describe attitudes toward her as "venom" -- this is a woman who spreads venom toward all those she doesn't consider "real Americans" (i.e., anybody who is a Dem, lives on a coast (not including Alaska) or is educated.

    OT, but... really? Have you been to many places there?

    I mean, if you're referring to a simple po-boy with cold cuts, I agree -- it's your basic sandwich -- a good one, but nothing special. But the creole dishes, jambalaya, oysters, etc. all are fantastic, imo. (what kind of food do you like?)
