Tourism on Bleeding4Metal - Pt.2: USA
« am: Oktober 15, 2004, 10:12:06 Nachmittag »
Ok ! Time to move on !

Eager to learn right ?

Since our good friend The metal RN was so anxious to know what country came next I suggest we do him the honour to continue with his homeland ! The united States of America !

Question remains : when you think about the USA you think about ...

Just one tiny little rule, if I may be so bold, please do not go on about Politics, we may all have our opinion about the foreign policy of the USA and if someone wants to open a topic about that, who am I to forbid that, but in here we are trying to figure out a bit more of the people and the way of life... So...

Boy ! I  sound like a school teacher for cryin' out loud !! :laugh:
Sorry not the intention but I am sure you catch my drift right ?

So euh... USA ! Where to start ???

Ok, don't shoot me American bleeders, just saying what comes to mind here...

Junk food, many overweight people, BIG country, contradiction : land of the free - national scandal about one naked boob ( :wink: ), high criminal rate, Star Trek, Married with Children, Friends, enthousiastic people, big -bigger- biggest...


Gonna keep it limited to this  for the moment since I don't wanna give our American dude too much work in responding to our remarks !!

big, bigger, biggest, yeah. And that's why one or two people can probably not tell us much ab out the whole USA, but maybe the single states they know and/or live in. Way too big and differential country on the whole, I think.

I still like to stay a while further...
Now, if you want to go west, I'm not holding you back...

I personally think about Douglas Stevenson.
You probably don't know him.

He was a professor of mine at the university. Very nice guy, very learned, very sick humour. I have learned more of him than from any other professor.
And in more than one way, too. He actually wrote the English-books I used in school!

Unfortunately, he had to return to the states this year, because his wife could not stand the German climate.
Oh well, they now live somewhere in Arizona, so if you ever meet 'em please greet them from me, ok?

You don't. Believe me, as I have the comparison.

I hope no not-US citizens take this as an invitation to open the fire on you....

PMRC is what comes to my mind. And it wasn't simply a breast, it was a pierced breast. Oh my god! Think about this! A pierced breast!
BTW: the world's largest porn business (production and consumption) is in the states.
Hypocrisy!

Very good point !!
Still we will be getting some info on one specific area then ??

Oh and I forget to mention one strange american phenomenon.
Last night I saw a documentary about the Venice hotel in Las Vegas where they tried to make an excact copy of the city of Venice in Italy, complete with historical buildings, canals and singing gondeliers !

Only one small detail : everything is made out of plastic, cardboard and isomo (hope this is the correct english word?)...
The spokesman said it was a succesfull effort to create the typical 'venice athmosphere' !!
HILARIOUS !! This guy was standing in the middle of a plastic city in the middle of the desert !
Now that is what I call American ! Not one single European would buy that kind of that crap ! Sorry metal RN...

Oh... The Big USA...  :shock:
I've been there once for 5 weeks and am eager to get back there... despite the fact that the country by itself is a catastrof (12.15 a.m after a few glasses :cheers: , dunno how to spell anymore ;) )the people are soooo friendly... atleast the ones I know :) But maybe that's just the way the other world (other than finland;) works.
Central park comes to mind.. and WTC :( And supersized meals... Even I couldn't finish those dishes... BIGBIG people. Skinny models. Superstars. Hollywood. And those stupid, irritating mindless TV shows....The poor&homeless... USA - everything, for good and worse.

Both is true: the highway existed, was renamed and now most of the motels and other business along the road went belly-up. The name of the highway was the only thing that brought tourists intop that part of the US.

*sings softly*
"Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored..."

Well well well the U S and A. Let's see what comes to my mind, shall we?

 :bluebanger: BRAINSTORMING!!! :bluebanger:

War of Independence, ID4, Mel Gibson, Creationism (bah!), Superbowl, fat people, retards who steal elections, first country in history to profess freedom of press, most powerful nation, wrestling (today's roman empire cf. its power and the (american) gladiators), Jerry Springer, grand skylines, fear and loathing in las vegas, melting pot of cultures, national pride, pledge of allegiance, charlton heston and his gun-maniacs, michael moore and his tree-huggers, South Park, junk food, hollywood, rock 'n roll, arnold schwarzenegger AND the big Star Spangled Banner that hangs in my room (over the radiator which is why its moving all the time and really contributes to the metal and the movie scores i listen to)

Yes of course he is Australian. Still hes a typical conservative hyper-religious George Bush type of American to me. And have you ever seen The Patriot?
No need to mention the Passion of the Christ...  :ass:

hrm what comes to mind when I think american.. ok this is really going to probly give us americans a bad image but hey I am not of normal breading stock and let us not forget I am really messed in the head for three reasons.. where do you get redneck, a drummer and a man of metal all together and create one individual lmao  :ass: ..

any ways what comes to mind when I think of my proud and glorious country.......


Hot rods, Hot chicks, muscle cars, drag racing (and i dont mean queers dressing as men and racing down the walkway either.. nothing against gays just not a part of their culture) big 4x4 trucks full of mud, 4x4'en the country side. chicks in tight wrangler jeans and breast blowing out the top of their shirts wearing cow boy hats, all the fishing and hunting you coud ever ask for,  endless fields of beuty, cattle in the country and the smell of manure. late nights on the porch watching the stars on our side of the pond..... country music and metal, big macs and super sized frys, and yes fat people too.. peterbuilt extended hood flat top semis flying down the high way all lit up in the night with lights (as us chicken truckers call em chicken lights)  the C.B radio blaring and talking about where the bears (cops) are laying out waiting for us truckers who drive fast and illeagal, being a nomad of the country.. the freedom of riding my hawg (harley davidson) big BBQ's with truckers at a truck stop or rest area some where,,,

a vast side of country and acres of beuty to myself out in the middle of no where, where my nearest neigbor is 40 acres from me, nice people, a american flag in my room and a confederate flag that hangs right next to it because I believe to a point southern style (no I am not rasist my best friend and brother in arms is 7 foot 2 and black).. carpenter jeans, tan leather work boots, nascar tee shirts and my dale earnhardt jr hat on backwards..

their is more but this is a start.. like I said I am different then most.....
