Southern California is way better than its treehugging counterpart to the north. Our girls are hotter, our guys more athletic, our Mexican food more Mexican, our music ridiculously awesome, and we're farther from Sacramento. We started In-N-Out. We don't abbreviate our name in a pathetic attempt to sound cool. In short, if this were high school, southern California would be the popular, athletic surfer kid, and northern California the dork who plays Dungeons and Dragons.

And we don't say "hella."

Oh no. I love frats. I was a frat groupie 'cause my best guy friend was in one... so we went to all of their parties, me and my partner in crime Teeny Pants, and then we just started going to every frats party. It was like an addiction. But I got through rehab and she didnt :o

We don't hug trees, we sit in them. http://www.nbc11.com/news/10870918/detail.html


Our girls are hotter
Good.. then that'll help acclimatize them to Hell.


our guys more athletic
Only in the gym. Wonder why mighty USC lost to lowly Oregon State??? and BTW, why is it LA has no NFL franchise, must not be much demand from those 'more athletic' guys down there.


our Mexican food more Mexican
Granted, we'll give you that one; but we have better Italian and Asian food; you can have your beans and tortillas.


our music ridiculously awesome
Santana, The Grateful Dead, the Jefferson Airplane, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sly & the Family Stone, the Steve Miller Band, Third Eye Blind, Tupac, The Doobie Brothers, the Tower of Power, Link 80, Chris Issac, John Lee Hooker, Janis Joplin, Boz scaggs, Journey, the Dead Kennedys, Exodus just to name a few, this is quite a tradition, we can say our music is 'ridiculously awesome' as well.


and we're farther from Sacramento
But you gave us Schwarzenegger.


We started In-N-Out
I wouldn't brag about that.


We don't abbreviate our name in a pathetic attempt to sound cool
Guess SoCal ppl don't like abbreviations; not trying to be mean, but is that why RFK was assassinated in LA??


In short, if this were high school, southern California would be the popular, athletic surfer kid, and northern California the dork who plays Dungeons and Dragons
You sound like YOU are still in high school.

Love Hollywood. How do you like it there?

The first couple of years its great, interesting people everyone trying to "become something" or "create something" or achieve something" :D...

...Then the next couple of years you begin to hate everything you originally liked about it (especially when you see all the nepotism recipients passing you by in the job market) and dismiss it all as phony, shallow, every guy seems to be a hustler every chick a famewhore :(...

...Then hopefully the next couple of years you've finally "gotten in where you fit in" (play the game right and those nepotism recipients then hire you to actually do the work) and then you just kick back with amazement that this place really exists. :cool: By then you can harmonize the good and the bad; play the game or even better stop playing the game and be above it all. :smoke: I'm only tight with 2-4 of my original "non-rugby" friends from when I first got to town, but I've got some good friends more aquaintances...you always have to remember that a lot of these people fit the OJay's song "Backstabbers" - smile in your face, while their trying to take your place. :devil:

As an athlete the weather can't be beat. Whatever your sport there are people who are into it at a competitive level. I am always shocked when I walk outside and its raining...its that rare usually.

As a straight guy the women are the hottest on the planet; you like 'em in all colors/religions, homegirls, rich, punk, alt, preppie, sporty, business types - you name it they look better in Hollywood. But the flip side it true also, if you got by on looks "back East" that isn't going to work out so well in Hollywood unless your goal is just to be a "whore" (male or female); good looks aren't enough. ;) There are model types bagging my groceries. :lol: :tape: Plus all the best looking guys are G-A-Y so you don't even worry about it when good looking guys come into the party most likely they won't be interested in that chick you're trying to talk too :lol:

As a business person, even though I'm happy where I am, its nice to know that there is so much opportunity out there if you have "something real to offer". Of course if you're just peddling bullshit and good intentions you'll join a sea of millions with "good ideas" and no product.

As a social type with a variety of interests, its great that everything that you're into and most things that you might be curious about are here if you look hard enough for them. Obviously every movie plays in town (important to me :angel: ). Almost every band comes to town and a lot of them play small intimate venues (not as important to me as it used to be :sad: )

As an NFL fan I love that we don't have a team so the best games are always on TV (when I lived in NY/NJ we had to suffer through the suck ass Giant/Jet/Eagle games even when the rest of the country was watching the top teams play each other.

Worst part is that traffic just flat out sucks. If you live in one of the beach towns in South Bay its a real pain in the ass to get anywhere...if you live anywhere and need to use the highway to get somewhere it will suck for you.

So in long, yes - I dig Hollywood. Not my favorite place, but I'm part of the Hotel California...I've checked in and probably can never leave. ;)

Only in the gym. Wonder why mighty USC lost to lowly Oregon State??? and BTW, why is it LA has no NFL franchise, must not be much demand from those 'more athletic' guys down there.



Granted, we'll give you that one; but we have better Italian and Asian food; you can have your beans and tortillas.



Santana, The Grateful Dead, the Jefferson Airplane, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sly & the Family Stone, the Steve Miller Band, Third Eye Blind, Tupac, The Doobie Brothers, the Tower of Power, Link 80, Chris Issac, John Lee Hooker, Janis Joplin, Boz scaggs, Journey, the Dead Kennedys, Exodus just to name a few, this is quite a tradition, we can say our music is 'ridiculously awesome' as well.



But you gave us Schwarzenegger.



I wouldn't brag about that.



Guess SoCal ppl don't like abbreviations; not trying to be mean, but is that why RFK was assassinated in LA??



You sound like YOU are still in high school.

Southern California is way better than its treehugging counterpart to the north. Our girls are hotter, our guys more athletic, our Mexican food more Mexican, our music ridiculously awesome, and we're farther from Sacramento. We started In-N-Out. We don't abbreviate our name in a pathetic attempt to sound cool. In short, if this were high school, southern California would be the popular, athletic surfer kid, and northern California the dork who plays Dungeons and Dragons.

And we don't say "hella."

Yes, it's fairly overpopulated, and there's absolutely no way the transportation problem will ever be resolved in my lifetime. Highway 880, 80, and 17 are the worst in the nation.

The Bay Area ranks among the most expensive regions in the nation as well. However, the pay compensates nicely IF you are degreed are well-connected. :hehehe:

The housing price here is approx.. $600,000.000 - $5 Million. :eek:
Three homes recently built on my corner cost apprx $3 Million each. :eek: They're nice looking, but seem rather small...with no front yard, back yard, or side yard. Each has a shoulder-width narrow walkway. :tape:
So yeah, it's ridiculously expensive here.

Alameda has the highest number of schools per capita then any other city. I've always wondered why that was. It may have had something to do with the Navel Air Station that was stationed here. However, the city has closed a number of campuses since the Alameda Naval Air Station left. Still, they just completed construction of a new state-of-the-art school [Ruby Ridges] within a newly developed community at the old Air Base site. Also, on that same huge property, thousands more homes are slated to be built. These will also probably go for $1 Million and up as well.

I wouldn't necessarily call it a hell-hole [any longer]. :lol:
The community is finally embracing diversity. And though the racial make-up is still 52% White :eek: we all sorta get along okay. :angel:

But what I like about Alameda is that I’m within walking distance of EVERYTHING!! And it'll be even better when they finally complete that megaplex movie theater and the revamped South Shore Mall. :worship:

I think most chains are national these days (In-N-Out and Tommy's probably being the exceptions)...I eat a lot at the Bev Center's Panda Express and Steak N Potato (or whatever the name of it is). Love the Brazillian place and a couple of other places at the Farmer's Market.

I wish other places made Pizza as well as Damiano's because they're so damn expensive (closest to East Coast Pizza you'll find, although the Pizza Joint on the Promenade in Santa Monica ain't bad). Eat A Pita looks closed for business which is a shame, I saw Flea there last year and I used to eat there at least 3 times a month. I went to Chin Chin's (Sunset Plaza) for Chinese yesterday, saw Kendra from the Girls Next Door and another Playmate, she's a friend of a friend so that was :cool: What else can I name; All American Burger and Baha Fresh get some love from your's truly.

:lol: In-N-Out is great but that's a horrible name for it because you are never In-N-Out. The Drive-thru is ridiculous all the time. :rolleyes: But Baja Fresh is disgusting to me. Hmmm, doesn't seem like much of a variety where you are at and I thought you were from the upscale area. :shrug:

Gee, thanks for sharing. :rolleyes:

The question was about "fast food" and you don't seem to be adding to the conversation, just nitpicking. :shrug:

Almost every famous place they have Hollywood parties is in my neighborhood, Spago, Il Sole, Le Dome, etc... ;) probably every decent Celeb place is within 10 miles of me. :cool:

I know it was about fast food idiot :weirdo:, which is why I was surprised they didn't have more of a variety considering where you're from. (You brag about it so much that it's permanently engrained in my long term memory.) I figured there might be things like Sonic, Mel's Diner, Coyote Sam's, Checkers, etc. Less mainstream fastfood restaurants but just as good or better. I just thought that maybe down there they wouldn't have the same run-of-the-mill boring McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's etc. And how am I nitpicking? I just said I did not like Baja Fresh and that In-N-Out was a very ironic name for the franchise. :shrug:

I am not going to let you try to call me out and me not say anything. We've always been cordial so this surprised me and virtually came out of nowhere. :rolleyes:

I just said I did not like Baja Fresh and that In-N-Out was a very ironic name for the franchise ["asked and answered ;)" and add the 'doesn't seem like much variety' comment too, like I'm here to list every place in the phonebook for you]. :shrug:

You have no choice in what you'll let me do. :lol:

Well at least this time you did say something, dumbass (see idiot comment above and incorporate the traditional rubber/glue defense)...

...so now I can sincerely say, "thanks for sharing"; instead of just nitpicking like a typical WTAworld jerk when all I did was name some fucking local fast food joints. :angel:


Cheers - :cool:

What? :weirdo: This was one of the most incoherent posts I've probably ever read here. I have no idea what you are talking about. Not that you're not intelligent, but maybe you should cool down on the colored font and maybe people would take your posts more seriously :lol: Alot of pizazz, but no fire.

Getting back to the topic at hand, you called me out, and I defended myself. I have no idea what would make you attack me like this.

Subways: They make the best and healthiest sandwiches on the West Coast, imho. IF you're looking for fast food sandwiches.

Interesting; I have always preferred Quiznos to Subway for some reason. :lol:

LOL, Quiznos and Subways are basically the same to me, they both have sandwiches, that's all, lol.

SO not the same...

Quizno's = Serena Williams
Subway = Patty Schnyder

both do the same thing, both good, but one is CONSIDERABLY better.

:lol:

I think rolling it through the heating rack does wonders for the sandwich. :lick:

On another note, anybody seen the gas prices lately? :o :bolt: :help:
