I heard it was cheesy, too. I don't know about the whole computer animated stuff. I don't think Beowulf should be a cartoon.

WE have an internationally appreaised bellydancing troupe.
Best fucking olde style Swinging restaurante around
Theres an old Brick house that's been abandoned for god only knows how long and I happened upon it one day, and on the top left brick above the fireplace in the living room (I presume) is a scrawled signature and a poem in what seems to be old fashioned fast dry pen paint. " Mclean ~ upon of which her eyes so bold, held a stare of which so cold, it threw me into a state of shock, I could no longer feel my cock."
I think it's damn neat.

the band HUMANWINE used to live here.

there is a huge abandoned lot which is now basically a swamp that was a zoo in the 20's.

The town's most famous sub shop is practially in a graveyard. And I mean that literally. It flanks a graveyard.

Hmmmm....
-we are supposedly the "rock-n-roll- capitol of the world"
-our lake (lake erie) caught on fire from all the pollution (this was in the '70's I believe)
-our crime rate has increased something like 40% this past year!
-our public school system is so shitty that most of our highschoolers barely know how to read
-Drew Carey is from here
-Michael Symon, the newest Iron Chef, is from here!
-I was born and raised here!

Cleveland really isn't so bad.  Granted most people hate it and make fun of it.
Any one else on around here from C-town??

I can walk across town at 3am and not worry about being mugged or anything. This is like one of the most non-dangerous towns.

From the window I'm sitting by, all I can see is trees and the ocean. And houses of course.

But here everything is close and central with in walking distance.

Peter Jackson lives here, Lord of the Rings was filmed in places around here.

And it isn't considered strange to see a group of people walking round carrying alcohol.

Lets see... El Paso..

Almost everyone is bilingual (I am not).
Being 10 minutes from the international bridge to Juarez, MX used to be cool, now it's scary.
University of Texas At El Paso has a 98% acceptance rate, seriously.
Mountains!
Oldest symphony in Texas
Flea markets!
Shopping at the dinky little stores downtown when your parents think you're at the mall.

i just moved to strathfeild... its pretty much just the suburbs, but ive always lived in the city. quite an adjustment haha

i really really love my new house and housemates but the area is terrible. there's nothing and its far away from everything. luckily the train station is really good. well in the sense there are constantnly trains going to and from it. the station itself kind of smells and lots of people get stabbed there haha

the town square also smells. my street smells alright though, fresh air isnbice after being in the city for so long. and theres lots of trees!

not multicultral in the least though. the only food you can get is korean. nothing against korean food but do kind of like... you know.. variety

but aside from the shitnessof the area, by house ios awesome and giant and iots very easy to leave! so yay!  :D
