When Alan Suderman called The Wire creator David Simon a “loud-mouthed TV dude” for his views on the Kwame Brown affair, Mayor for Life-turned-Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry was not having it! But they found common ground on Twitter by talking about Clay Davis, and now everything’s cool.
Loud-mouthed TV dude relives glory days and opines on Kwame case, which he knows nothing about http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/looselips/2012/06/08/morning-clicks-72/
@AlanSuderman David Simon is a GREAT WRITER! We didn’t have a problem with Baltimoreans in our biz when they were saving our asses in 1812.
@AlanSuderman Just b/c u disagree w/him, how do u get “loud mouth tv dude” from the writer of The Wire? Come on,he wrote THE WIRE! #sadtimes
@marionbarryjr who is your favorite character from The Wire?
@AlanSuderman I honestly liked them all! But when Marlo saw Omar jump from 5- story apt, he said, “damn that was some spider-man isht”#funny
@marionbarryjr just speaking truth to Hollywood power.
@AlanSuderman Hey, I’ve apologized for everything lately. How about YOU apologize for calling David Simon loud-mouth tv dude, dude?
@marionbarryjr No way! Not meant as insult, but as objective adjective. I’m loudmouth too and there ain’t no shame in my game.
@AlanSuderman Ohhhh! Ok.I hear you. I know you’re a good guy Alan. Just wanted to point out he’s a great WRITER-not loud mouth tv dude 🙂
@marionbarryjr ok, how’s this: David Simon, who made the best tv show of all time, is running his mouth prematurely on Kwame case
@AlanSuderman ….and so there is peace, brother-dude. 🙂 Thank you. Btw, what was YOUR favorite character/scene?
@marionbarryjr Clay Davis, in every scene he was in, but esp when he testified as his own trial
@marionbarryjr 2nd favorite scene: when Mayor Royce jokes about wearing a dashiki like you used to wear.
Bucket list #32: Get Marion to do a Clay Davis impersonation on Twitter. Completed. RT“@marionbarryjr: @AlanSuderman “sheeeeeeeee-t””
