That's funny because here , in Ontario, Calgary has this unspoken reputation as being the promised land for work if you "are willing to make the move out there". I guess it is all just fucking bullshit. Then again, can't be worse than The Niagara Region where I live. I think we officially "bested" Windsor as having the lowest employment rate in the country.

news must've not reached there, haha. last year there was a major labor crunch during the fall and everyone was hiring, it was pretty easy to get a job, as long a you were over 16.
then in december, all of a sudden that shit got trampled on my the recession/depression because companies had to money to pay people. hell, i'm pretty lucky to be getting 11$/h while everyone else is offering (if they're offering at all) around 9$/h. i know good people who's been hawking around resumes for over a year and haven't found anything. one of my friends estimates he's applied around 150 times over the past 10 months. still unemployed.

Just brutal. I am so grateful that I managed to :
A) Find a job in this god forsaken region/depression and
B  ) Have it be the most epic $10/hour retail job of all time. I literally get paid to talk to you guys on CB and sell the occasional piece of blown glass.

born and raised in calgary, the canadian equivalent of nashville.
living in the suburbs is kind of mediocre to begin with, despite the fact that i have a nice place.
otherwise this city's pretty boring. music scene's limited to metal and indie bands, with a few exceptions. oh and a fuckton of tegan & sara fans.
living's overpriced no matter what. if you have a nice place here you either payed tons to get a pretty small quality bungalow/condo in the inner city or you live in the outskirts far away from everything. the city keeps expanding horizontally instead of vertically. ugh.
don't move here. there are no jobs. if you make a fortune you will spend it on living expenses + gas. lol

Nashville has a great music scene.

mostly i like the city an hour north of here.
but csprings has it's moments as well.

unfortunate that for every good band there's 10 synthpop scene bands.

I hate this place, I wanna get the fuck out of here.
I don't think I'll be able to spend another year here.

on the other hand, I'm sure I'd be an entirely different person if I didn't grow up here and be influenced by what I was influenced by, met the people I met, and had the experiences I've had.

not doubting it. but it has a country scene, as we do. only much better than ours.

not say country is bad, it's just nice to have variety.

i love where I live. I grew up around great people here in Somerset.  It's peaceful, yet has a bit of a lively feel to it.  And the highway scenery during the fall is beautiful.  Plus i live near providence, which is always a fun place.  I don't think I would have picked anywhere else to live.

Well...................yeah you're right long island music is dead. except for the hardcore aspect. Now that I think about it, Long island music is shitty pop bands that play at the crazy donkey frequently like under spinning lights etc etc. .....wow now the only reason good about long island are my friends.....and green cactus

Lol, true. Stereotypes about Mississippians aren't stereotypes. They are just facts.
