I'm a Kentucky Reject as well. I'm in Danville. Blah. I wish Green Day would come to Kentucky some day. One of my friends got to go to the Nine Inch Nails concert in Lexington. She called my sister and recorded the concert.. only parts of it. Whatever. I'm so jealous.

This place has been dead lately.. so how about some news!

I am hoping to do/ get someone do do spotlights on local bands: and to boost membership in this community while we are at it. Also, if you know of any upcoming events in the area, lets put them up on here as well. I don't really care what you post about... lets just get this place up and going again lol.


BIG NEWS: Nine Inch Nails will be in Lexington in February. Check out their website or www.ticketmaster.com for more details. Anyone in this comm. going? I am!

Some things to discuss: dates of craft fairs, musical performances, etc.

Check out "The Life of Brian Lewis" playing downtown Richmond. Find this up-and-coming artist playing The Whiskey and LiveWire.
Check out Komatoze, whose new album will be featured in several magazines.
Check out local artist, J.Sparks, aka Eugene- Stop by the Richmond Mall Shades sunglasses shop to view his graphic novel in progress

Please feel free to post about anything... sales, plays, music, stores... promote and discuss!

Did anyone see the documentary "Country Boys" about two teens coming of age in the Appalachain mountains? If you didnt see it... I reccomend it. You can watch it at www.pbs.org. It is a real eye-opener concerning rural life.

There are several people interested in opening a new store in the central ky area, dealing with crafts, local art, gaming, figures, collectibles, etc. If anyone is interested, please comment.

O Canada [04 Dec 2004|12:17am]

blueeyedgirl519
Wow. Reading everyone's survey I didn't realize so many people were into Canada. For the longest time I've been one of the few people I know who really liked it. (That's been about 5 years.) Actually, I think I will move there withing the next 5 years. What intrigues everyone about Canada? Me, I like it's unique character of just being a great place. No one makes fun of Canada for being sadistic, unfair or ugly. It has a lot of culture as well. There's so much to do there. This summer I'm hoping to go to either Alberta or Québec. It's going to be great.

1) Have you lived in KY all your life? Have you ever lived anywhere else, how does it compare? Yeah, I've lived here since I was born.. It's always been really borring. . .
2) WHy did you join this community? I thought it seemed nifty./.interesting.
3) Top favorite bands?
That's a tough question... I listen to way too much music to pick favorites...mmm..but here goes anyway:
*The Cure
*Smashing Pumpkins
*Breaking Benjamin
4) Most entertaining place to hang out in your area? That would have to be.. No wait.. There isn't anything entertaining in my area.. unless you like spending a lot of time in the woods.. or at Wal-Mart.
5) Best local band you know of? I'd tell you if any of the local bands I've heard were worth talking about.. Most of them aren't even together any more.. It's sad.
6) Your opinion on Kyians unlike yourself? Eh. . Just more people being the way people are.
7) What you think would improve this community? Umm.. It'd probably be cooler if people had more to say.
8) If you could live anywhere else, where would it be and why? Seattle, because a friend of mine used to live there and he really loved it, so I'd like to find out for myself.
9) If you had to pick a stereotype to discribe yourself, now or if you are older when you were in highschool/college, what would it be and explain.
Umm.. Well, some of the freshman at my school call me "gothic". But I'm not. They think everyone who regularly wears jeans and black concert t-shirts is a goth... Probably because they don't know what they're talking about.
10) How old are you/ what region are you from? 17. I'm from the Laurel/Knox/Whitley Co. area.. South-Eastern KY.
11) What is your favorite radio station? What do you think about z103 getting in trouble for the smoking ban hoax ( if you know about that station and that hoax)
I don't listen to the radio very much. There aren't any good stations around here.. And I don't know what smoking ban hoax you're talking about, so as for that issue, I have no comment.

Hmm. You all seem like nifty people..
. So, Kentucky really sucks for the most part, but I've lived here my entire life and so I'm not really sure if it gets a lot better anywhere else (although I hear Seattle is a wicked place to live)..

.. But yeah.. Just thought I'd say hello.

Now back to my wonderful life spent sitting on my butt in front of a computer doing nothing!
