And that in turn is confusing me, because to me, Metropolis is one of the most important songs in prog music history. Dream Theater's Metropolis Part I: The Miracle And The Sleeper.

Don't let the name fool you, Metropolis is a very small town Basically the only thing they have is the casino, and a big ol' statue of Superman.

No, no. I totally agree with you. House parties>going to nightclubs for overrated drinks.

i wondered about that. i figured it must've been a small town as i hadn't heard of it until i entered the casino biz. but still, it's not like i know where every casino in the country is, just the ones in my general vicinity and the ones the company i work for owns.

I love these US cities with cocky names. I bet Metropolis isn't exactly a bustling metropolis either.

Though my favourite is Centre Of The World in Ohio: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Center_..._World%2C_Ohio

Andrew, I like that Metropolis song more than I feel I should.

The Violet Burning song is crap at the start though. 30 seconds in now.

Kentucky's new governor was gonna put a casino here in my city (Paducah) but the bible thumpers panicked and got it banned

And a random change of topic. Have you ever been to Mud Island river park? I think it looks nerdily fun

Ha, we were actually going to go to Centreville for some reason, I forget what now, but never got around to it. (That sounds familiar, doesn't it? Blaaahhh. I should've stayed with somebody who could get their act together. )

ugh, how lame. casinos have been suggested in memphis as well as desoto county, mississippi (the closest county in the state to memphis, tunica is the next one down) and both have been rejected. although at least tennessee got a lottery. but wtf, i don't give a shit about the lottery. i played one time, on my 18th birthday. i bought one ticket, didn't match any numbers, and was like "that sucked. i'm never doing this again." at least casinos are slightly fun. you can put $10 in a penny slot machine and it can last an hour if you play your card (or slots, hahaha) right.

yeah, i've been to mud island. whenever i've gone, it's been kind of anti-climatic though and most of the stuff has been closed i guess. and i first went when we moved here in like 95 when downtown was boring with nothing to do. although i've seen a couple concerts there.

Glad you liked the Metropolis song--I'm surprised. It's a love song. I didn't realise you were fond of such things.
