Hoofa's Visitors...

Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

For all the positive feedback and compliments about Jimmyhoofa, apparently someone out there does not like my blog -- "the neon lounge."  He's apparently frustrated that I won't publish his anonymous comments.  This rant is quite a piece of work detailing various complaints and criticisms of my blog posts.  I am amazed that someone would actually even waste 5 minutes of their time putting something like this together, considering that my blog is really not meant to be taken all that seriously.  I just take photos of what I see and add commentary.  It really is meant to be taken with a sense of humor -- obviously not all people see things like me!  Here's the link to one of @neons tirades:


  1. Heyyyy Forget about it!!!!!
    I think you have a great Blog -
    The blog name "Jimmy Hoofa's" says it all to me --- funny irreverent humor and enlightening observations on life in a stranger than most city.
    Keep up the great posts and thank you for your efforts..I appreciate your photography also- especially the series on abandoned construction sites....I've been to Las Vegas a few times and personally I don't care for it - and for what its worth - I smoke and am not a card player - I prefer to throw money away on slots and roulette in Reno...that being said I have no problem with the things you say about smokers, bad gamblers etc... most of the problems with people today is they are so "sensitive" to other peoples "opinions" and too worried about being PC - If more people would lighten up and look at life like you do then we all could just chill and have a good time...thanks for the Great Site - KEEP IT UP - more posts and pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. This guy is a tool. Plain and simple. Why in the world he took that much time out of his "busy day" (yeah, right!), is puzzling.

    You share with us the real Las Vegas these's not all glitz and glamour.

    Anyway, the guy is a douche...cheers to you Jimmy, King of the Real Las Vegas!

  3. I'm here in LV staying in an extended stay place. What a hoot. The walls are so thin, not only can you hear every word your neighbors are saying, you can see them. And they're ugly. You wouldn't believe the same scenario that is played out every single night by a gay couple in the adjoining unit. This Mexican man comes home every night drunk and starts berating his "black bitch" as he calls his partner. After he slaps and spanks "her", he finally gives in to "her" whimpering and crying, "Papa, I'm sorry, I'm sorry". Then they fall into make-up man love until the early morning. So, Hoffa, keep writing and posting what you like. This is a free country.

  4. @Buddy:

    One of the best comments ever! I was just laughing so hard. Thanks for sharing! Sorry you have to put with such nonsense -- gay or straight, people should have decency to lower the volume, right?

    @Neon: You going to throw another hissy fit on your blog about this one? Really?
