Stick a fork in me...

... I’m done. If you’d like to Google around in the UBM archive, here’s a handy custom search engine:


UPDATE (05/05/09): Showbiz blogger Nikki Finke breaks the news that HBO has greenlit David Simon’s new drama series, “Treme.” (I just found out today my own self.)

That means we’ll be back in New Orleans in November to begin filming. The writing staff will get cracking over the summer. And “Treme” should be on TV screens some time next year. Yay, HBO!

I just saw that at nola.com - and it meant the chance to drop by here and say thanks for your great blogging. I discovered it last year, I think after the death of Ashley Morris, but I can't be sure. In any case, I've liked your New Orleans posts alot, and all the music you link to. Your political/social posts have also been thought-provoking.

I hope you have a great time with Treme and have lots of reason to be here in NOLA.

Best news I've heard in awhile.

Kaitrin said...

I am just catching up and while I will miss your blog, especially your compelling political commentary, I am psyched about "Treme." Good luck and thank you for doing this as long as you have!

Jeffrey said...

I've read your blog since the end of '07. I'll definitely miss seeing it. IMHO, it was right at the top of the blog list.

I'm hoping this means you'll spend that creative energy writing some killer TV shows &/or movie scripts. I'll be keeping an eye out for them.

The WIRE..I hated it..So tired of sterotypical urban fare..

Thembi said...

This is a perfect example of what I truly adore about you. The rest of the world would put up a body part to bet that Treme would be a go, but you were still on the modest maybes. I cannot wait for so many reasons (except for the fact that now I have a reason to renew my HBO subscription).
Congrats! And that coffee-carrier offer I made a few months back still stands.

Undercover Black Man said...

^ Well, HBO went thumbs-down on David Milch's latest project, and he's considered television's greatest writer. So nothing is guaranteed in this topsy-turvy world.

Thanks for the good wishes, Thembi.

Russell said...

Wow "Thrasher" what a nice thing to say on a guy's last post about a show he worked on. Each to his own but "stereotypical urban fare". PUH-leaze! Judging from the lack of activity on your own blog perhaps you're just trying to drum up some traffic. Not going to happen though. I checked it out and all of your posts are boring, pedantic, bitter and riddled with spelling errors. I did not see one comment on your site. Nice going!
