    Already appears to be sold out. The goddamn city sucks when it comes to shows! Nobody realizes there are 3.5 million people here, and the 3 million yuppie bastards who live in the suburbs and then invade my nightlife before they driving their gas-guzzling monsters back to their faux fantasy land gobble up the tickets in 4 seconds every time someone or something worth seeing comes to town.

    You must be right as I put in 1 ticket and it turned me down. We’ll sorry folks. This was the first I saw it in the paper. Guess you have to buy tickets 6-9 months in advance. This is the 3rd time I have tried to buy tickets for an event and I have not been able to get decent seats. Oh well.

    Seinfeld sells out in right away about anywhere he goes, just not enough shows for the audience out there. Last time he was in Chicago, my parents got his tickets in the first ten minutes, then they were gone.

    Don’t vilify all of us who live in the ‘burbs, though. Lots of us want to live in the city, but the commute to work is an hour and half each way, and the homes are out of our price range. Not every one in North Fulton sucks. It gets old hearing people in the city saying that those out of the city suck and the people in the suburbs saying that those in the city suck.

    Your nightlife?

    Without 3 million yuppie suburban bastards, most of the businesses that constitute “your nightlife” would not exist.

    You want Atlanta without the 3 million yuppie suburban bastards? You can have it anytime — it’s called Birmingham, Alabama.

    Sincerely,
    Intown Yuppie Bastard

    Come on, in-town housing costs is a bogus argument (If you can afford a house in the burbs you can afford a house ITP – it just might not have a yard), and “long commute” would appear to be a positively self refuting one (The commute gets longer the close you get?).

    But while I have many problems with the suburbs (the mentioned gas-guzzling prominent among them) I fail to see how they screw up anyone’s nightlife disproportionately.

    And Birminham is the opposite, homey, it’s like Atlanta without the ITP.

    In-town costs aren’t more? Bull, my friend. Do you have kids? I’m sorry, but where I can get more affordable housing in the city, I have to send them to a school that gets 96% free lunches eligibility (this is not a number out of thin air, that’s the real number) and spends more time making sure little kids don’t have knives in school, instead of teaching. I won’t even start on the property taxes, which I have no issue with the property tax rate in the city, but the cost is substantially more for us to afford.

    Go try to find an area in the city Atlanta that DOESN’T send our kids to a complete failing school, and we can’t get a three-four bedroom home below the 300s, which is too much for us.

    Oh, and for the self-righteous, we actually don’t want nor have a yard in the suburbs. Shocking, huh? Once again, some don’t seem to understand that many of us would like to live in the city, but can’t for issues ranging to housing cost and schools. Stress, you’d didn’t read my piece correctly, I believe. My wife works up in North Fulton and we live in North Fulton. Most days in traffic, if we lived for example in Grant Park, the commute would push an hour to an hour and a half each way. We have the opposite problem, moving to the city would actually make the large commute, not decrease it.

    Jay, your class envy is sooo unbecoming. When it comes to a showdown with one of ATL’s horrible drivers, I’ll take my gas guzzling monster of a Pathfinder that I paid a fortune for and can easily afford over the piece of shit three wheeler you probably drive and can barely afford any day of the week. A lot of us yuppie bastards tip well too, so remember that as you wait tables, tend bar, or do whatever it is that you woe-is-me types do.

    Back to the point, saw Seinfeld in Tampa, nanny nanny boo boo. The greatest show I’ve ever seen. Non-stop laughter for two straight hours.

    I would bet these comments are almost as funny as the Seinfeld show. Especially Miss Fire, you rock.

    You know, my friends, I find some of the ITP hipsters as nausating and comical as I find the uncool and environmentally averse suburbanites. Generalizations notwithstanding, ha ha. It’s like you can live in a hip place intown that is close to kewl shops, bars, and hipminded folks, get hammered for handouts every time you step out the door in locales where most schoolchildren can’t even read, no one cares about the quality of the public schools, get taxed to death by the arrogant mismanaged city government, all for Marta rides, and just as long as they offer all the trendy microbrews on tap at the local bar.

    Have we all had enough with generalizations yet.

    How’d this evolve into ITP housing costs and suburbanite woes?

    That tears it…I’m going to Birmingham. :)

    This post and comments turned into a Seinfeld Episode. He’ll do it to ya!


  11. Stress (unregistered) on February 16th, 2006 @ 9:58 pm

    Yeah, I had off-topic guilt when posting that, but I far from started it.

    Wow. The terrorists really have already won, haven’t they?

    Gold Jerry, GOLD!
