Alright everybody, I have a new cause. I will not take solid food until this song -- “Big Alligator” by Chief Jim Billie -- wins a Grammy. In fact, I vow to kill myself if this doesn’t win, like, all the Grammys. Do you hear that Grammy people? Do you hear that Kanye West?
I know your Mom just died. But this guy’s dog got eaten by a gator. OK? A fucking alligator. Let’s all just take a minute to think about what that means. --Calvin Godfrey
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
