well im from Dallas, but I'm going to include Dallas/Ft. Worth so let me get started. first of all the great heavy metal band PANTERA was fromed in Arlington between Dallas and Ft. Worth, and of course Damageplan with Bob and Patrick from Dallas and Dime and Vinnie from Arlington, Rebel Meets Rebel with David Allen Coe who's living in Ft. Worth and of course the Abbot bros. oh, and Drowning Pool is from Dallas. there's a band called Rigor Mortis which is pretty big. and SRVs from Dallas, but put together Double Trouble in Austin.

Alexandria, that's where I'm originally from, which is 5 minutes distance from D.C.
There might be more than one Panacea

EDIT: actually more like a minute away since the cities are connected so I basicly consider D.C., Arlington, and Alexandria one town

Homosexual sex for $200?
Be honest.
I'd do it. I think that I could stand one night with a man for the financial security of my whole life and the life of my children
And no I'm not gay. I'm 100% straight.
