Queen City Confidential

Sleazy Rider

To the guy with the Harley who was visiting my neighbour this weekend: you’re a douchebag. And it isn’t the Harley that makes me say that. Yeah, your bike is loud and annoying — driving one around, making that industrial farting noise up and down the block, that makes you an obnoxious asshole. But there are so many obnoxious Harley-riding assholes in this town, I wouldn’t bother writing about you, except you go that extra mile into douchebaggery when you put on that helmet with the “English Spoken Here” sticker on the back. Classy! We get it! You hate foreigners! Well congratulations, racist, obnoxious, Harley-riding douchebag. You’ve inspired me to brush up on my French so I can be sure to be speaking it wherever you or your racist friends might be. /Anonymous

  1. Are you not watching them because you support the strike? If that’s the cause, then you should know that doesn’t make any sense; a deal was specifically drawn up between the writers and ABC for those mobisodes that pays the writers a decent amount of money.This is taken from LOSTpedia”With the distribution of the Lost storyline on the forefront of new technologies (e.g., ARGs, podcasts, online viewing, and iTunes downloads), the financial issues of mobile content distribution had been wholly unknown to entertainment industry unions. Brenda Ching of SAG’s Hawaii branch first encountered these issues with regard to Lost and described them to the larger national unions. In April 2006, the three major guilds negotiated a first-of-its-kind agreement in the industry between Touchstone and Lost, allowing for actors, writers, and directors to work under guild auspices and be compensated for the mobisode series.”But if you’re not watching them because you don’t support the, that’s a whole other story.
