Hey UG, haven't been pit-swaggering for a couple of months, but was just curious about an idea I had.

Post something about where you live that makes you proud to live there.

For me, Newport was such a hotbed of a musical scene in the 90's that it became known among the music press as the 'British Seattle', with bands like the Super Furry Animals, Feeder, Dub War and My Favourite Pornstar. The rock club TJs (recently bought by O2 to be turned into an academy) hosted shows by Nirvana, Iron Maiden, and Green Day, while being the early Rutting Grounds of bands such as LostProphets, BFMV and Trivium. In 1997 it was named in the 'Top 50 nights out in the world' by FHM magazine.

Scunthorpe. We have one of the largest Steel Works in the world. Which makes the town look like a shithole.

My town's really nice but it's 8 miles away from the city of Hull so people often assume it's a shit hole!

*Insert hilarious quote here.*

I like the small town feel of where I'm actually from. It's refreshing to go back to once in a while.

You should go like them...even if you don't like them.

"Skunk"
"Skunk"
"Hash"
"Crack"
"Skunk"

I do love Camden though...

Trent Reznor was born here. I go to school with his niece.
I always thought that was cool. Kind of gives me hope that if he grew up in this small town and made it big, maybe someday I could too.

I want to re-locate to Hawaii, or So.Cal, or, maybe Pennsylvania, like, just outside of Philadelphia. But here in the UK, love London.

i'm near two of the biggest rock festivals in the world; donnington and knebworth. that's enough for me.

Well I live in Dudley so the things thats come to mind are:

1) lots of history with the black country. strangely enough, even though the black country museum is on my doorstep, I dont know too much about it , but yeah I know its important

2)Its part of the west midlands which has had a few metal bands ale from around here. Black Sabbath and Judas Priest come to mind. In fact, Glen Tipton was just born down the road I think (in Blackheath)

Edit: Mkay I misread so I took out the EDL protest thing. Its the one thing im not proud of here with all the multi-culture.

Best thing about Vancouver? There are more sushi shops than Starbucks and that shit is dirt cheap. Copious amounts of raw fish FTW.

You should be proud of the fact that your town has one of the best music scenes in the world.
