So a Doherty High School student named Curtis Kariuki has been the buzz of the Worcester Facebook world this past week because of a video he made from drone clips from all over the city. The Facebook page, “I Love Worcester” shared the video and claims to be the reason it took off (no pun intended).
Well done. And I really liked the music. I’m glad to see there are high school kids out there in this city who are both talented and still have an appreciation for the JAZZ.
So since this video was made last week, the Telegram finally decided to report on it today. And since the column was written by Sam Allen, she had to find a way to take something that everyone generally liked, and turn it into a negative:
Alright first of all, how is Curtis Kariuki a high school student? If I was in high school with this kid I would be best friends with him for one main reason – that face right there isn’t getting carded when he walks into El Cocqui to buy a 30 pack of Red Dog. I swear, there is something in the water at Doherty High School. The boys there have always just looked older. Seriously, they have real man facial hair by sophomore year there. At the other Worcester schools everyone’s rocking the Voke-stache, which is basically a collection of dirty pubes hanging above your top lip.
But I digress.
Back to Sam Allen and the Telegram being a joke. Not only did she/they report a story about a video that went viral a week ago, all she did was reproduce the video and then toss in her own little ball of controversy:
Seriously? Not one person watched this video and said, “Pretty fucked up he used a drone. Those things aren’t safe!!” Not one. Actually, there was this one guy:
But he’s from Oklahoma so nothing he says matters.
The rest of us were just like, “So, that’s what Plumley Village looks like before birds shit all over it. Cool.”
But seriously, she said in that Facebook post that this video has prompted many safety and privacy concerns. You know what a real reported would do if they wrote that as a headline? Interview someone who who felt that this video was a safety or privacy concern. Seriously, you have a city of 180,000 people. Go find one person who thinks this kid invaded their privacy by making this film. Oh wait, that would require doing work. Not really Sam Allen’s favorite thing.
The problem with Sam Allen is that she can’t come up with her own original content so she takes an existing positive story that makes Worcester look good and finds a way to turn it into negative. Because she’s from North Andover, and she’s basically just using Worcester as a stepping stone for her career in this dying industry. Next stop, Boston Globe!! She’ll fit right in there.
The ironic part is that the butthurts love to point out that Turtleboy is the bad guy because we highlight Worcester’s finest filth and grime. But isn’t this the same exact thing that all the Turlteboy butthurts say about us? Looks like once again the Telegram and Gazette shows that it’s nothing more than a smut magazine ripoff of TBS.
Nice video Curtis. Now if you wouldn’t mind sending your drones over 41 Piedmont Street, we have some people we’d like you keep an eye on for us.
