Default A Boy From CHINA

Hello guys, I'm from China and I like drum so much though I can't play so good!
I found this forum a few days ago,and I feel it's real great.In CHINA rock music is not so popular,and people who listen to rock music are considered as crazy men! I think it's very ridiculous! I think we can make friends and I can learn a lot from you! THX!

Default Where Have You Lived?

I am a native of Atlanta, Georgia and have lived and worked here my entire life, which recently passed the half-century mark. My family roots in the area can be traced back to the late 1700's and the majority of my relatives on both sides have remained close to the area. I did live for eight years in Athens, GA, some 65 miles away or so, while attending university. Chances are good (at this late date) that I will live out the remainder of my days in Atlanta which is fine. It's a great place. Over the many years, though, I have occassionally toyed with the idea of living somewhere else in the U.S. or maybe even abroad. I've had the good fortune to travel throughout the world as well as see a great deal of my own country, and there have been places I've felt a natural affinity for. Each trip has been an enlightening and educational experience but actually living somewhere is a very different thing altogether. I've noticed that some folks on the forum have lived in a variety of cities and even different countries - many have called a lot of places home. I'd be interested in hearing about where members have lived and their thoughts about those places - good and bad. Also, any good musical scenes?

Well, I've lived in Northern California my whole life (17 years). From what I've seen and heard of the rest of the country, I've started to realize that we've got it really good here. No terrible hurricanes or tornados or freezing weather for multiple months at a time... That's not to say that it's 70 degrees and sunny all year, as we have had i think 300% of our average rainfall this year, levees are breaking, streams overflowing, my front yard is still draining from being filled up with water yesterday.

That said, we have it relatively mild here compared to the rest of the country. I really like it here and do plan on staying here the rest of my life.

As for the music scene, people say that it's really good here. I can't say much personally because I don't see that much happening, but I may just be used to it having lived here all my live.

Norcal is a very relaxed place. Chico, which I live outside of, is the biggest town north of Sacramento, with around 100K people. Traveling through Chico takes a total of 15 minutes, and on either side there are cow pastures, orchards, and rolling hills, very easy to escape to. I live about 5 hours from the Pacific Ocean and 3? hours from ski resorts. It is really an ideal location.

Hope this doesn't sound too much like an ad, but it is really great here.

i've lived in surrey, 10 minutes outside of vancouver for 17 years, my whole life. I hate Surrey, but love Vancouver. I don't think i will move from here unless things get very very ugly here such as growing drug problems and whatnot. I may consider moving to Europe for retirement though. who knows.

Providence, R.I. till about 16 born and survived
Garden Grove, CA.---16yo till 17
Charleston, S.C. 85-88---Very nice place to live
Bremerton, WA--88-90---Way to wet and cold for me
Aiea, H.I.----------90-96----Really love it here, I almost stayed here to live if I had'nt met my wife
Nashua, N.H.-----96-2000---Perfect place in New england, Voted best city in America to live 3 years in a row and is consisitently in the top 5. 45min from Boston and 1-1/2hrs from the white mountains.
Naples,IT----2001-2002---Got sent there as a member of the reserves after 9/11..had a blast. Missed home but Italy is a whole different way of life. Beautiful
Rochester, N.H.---2002-to present....Really like it here, not quite as nice as Nashua but feels like home. We also toy with the idea of moving to a warmer area (AZ,NV, NM,FL etc) because we like to play golf and ride motorcycles but I really think we will live the rest of our days in N.H.

All these places mostly due to being in the Navy, have been all over the world and cherish the experiences and friends I made along the way.

Got to venture down into the depths of a small Pyramid near the big ones. One of her local coworkers took me out to see the "countryside" - goes on seemingly forever - thousands of adobe -like dwellings. Got to spend an afternoon at her boss's villa on the coast and swam in the Red Sea. How 'bout that traffic in the city? You could get rich selling car horns. One guy I talked to said he went through about 3 a year! Hope to go back some day - maybe get to Luxor this time.

How long in Savannah? Like it? Still might go to Augusta? Beautiful city.

6 years. I liked it, since it was the only place within 300 miles that was unlike the rest of the Deep South. Very progressive (for the south) and very weird! The weather sucks in the summer (too humid!), but it is nice in spring and winter!

Egypt was an eye-opener (or eye-sore you could say). I got to stay at all the 5 star hotels in Giza for awhile, but the other 6 months I lived in a tent in the desert (Yay Army!) I spent every day in town though, and really learned to hate traffic and pollution.

People complain that the US is such a polluter. I would say that Cairo pollutes more than the entire US! (Has anyone ever seen a dirtier river?)

Yeah, Savannah's a wierd place - like New Orleans in a lot of ways. Lots of ghosts - "Midnight in the Garden..." and all that. Stunning architecture in the older parts. The humidity there is even worse than Atlanta, and in the deep summer you can almost cut it with a knife here. Spring's nice but too short as is Autumn. Summer seems to last forever. Progressive's great, but the explosive growth of Atlanta in the last two decades has created a real mess - urban sprawl, millions of cars and a rapid transit system that's a joke. Too little too late. Pollution has become a critical problem in the last few years. Not quite up there with L.A., but it won't be long, unfortunately.

I agree that Cairo is pretty nasty and the pollution much worse than anything we see in the states (and that's really bad!). No controls (or cat converters) to speak of. I was amazed how there's virtually no traffic signs or lights and the cars just swirve in and out honking wildly the whole time. One local guy told me that the horn is the way a driver senses the position of the car in relation to other vehicles. And pedestrians just walk out into the street without thinking and the cars just go around them. One ride, I thought we were going hit at least six people. Only saw one "fender bender'" the whole time.

A lot of folks in the U.S. are thinking the same thing as regards going to Europe. I didn't get to travel there until I was in my forties, although I'd wanted to since my teens. Spent some wonderful time in Amsterdam. Love the Netherlandish art -especially that of the Northern Renaisasance and the later Baroque.

I was born in town of Cherepovets - it's Finno-Ugric word - Cherepoves - means "Pile of fish". This settlement was founded in 950-960 A.D., and in 1777, by the decret of Empress Katherine II was declared as a town-Cherepovets.

In 1997 I moved in Saint-Petersburg.

Wow, St. Petersburg. If there's one city I want to see in the World it would be St. Petersburg. Such rich history and social changes in such short spans have really given it a multi-faceted and rich culture in comparison to a lot of other shorter-existing American cities.

I've lived in Gravesend, Kent, England for my whole life. We have Gary Noonan (drum maker) and are known as the deathplace of Pocohontas. The theory is that she saw Gravesend and gave up hope. I feel the same, the place is horrendus. Only good thing are the plentiful transport links to get me out.

I'm a west coast girl:
Born in San Francisco ... truly left my heart there and am terribly homesick for it all the time
Moved to Barstow, CA when I was 8, for 15 mind-numbing, torturous years (if you've ever driven from LA to Vegas, you've gone through ... if you don't know it, it's in the middle of the Mojave Desert, with nothing to claim but a couple of military bases, a big railroad switching yard, a dry river, unbearable heat and humidity in the summer, and sand storms that'll take the paint right off your car).
Escaped to San Diego for 15 years (talk about feeling like paradise!) and lived in El Cajon, North Park and Pacific Beach.
Moved to Canada, to the wilds of British Columbia and lived outside of Clearwater for 9 years.
Wanted to go to New Mexico, Wisconsin or So Dakota when I left Canada, but the Seattle area was the farthest I could get with three howling cats in the back seat of my car. Have been here for 10 years, first in Bothell and now Everett.

No, it is completely voluntary. It is a good way to pay back school or get money to go to school (and give yourself time to figure out who you are before commiting yourself to the real world, heh).

It also pays a lot of people more money than they'd be worth in the private sector (sadly).
