ok who is your favorite musician or band

not most talented...not who can shred the best..not who can do the most 1/64 notes in a row without missing.I'm not looking for some esoteric bullshit no one ever heard of either

At the end of the day while sitting on the back veranda drinking a sam adams who do you unwind to that people actually have heard of? What is your *that's just fucking cool* stuff?Any genre...dont care.50's doop to metal to pop to whatever.

Lets see the bottom line that when you need to unwind what you play

I want to talk frankly about the south hate here

and let people understand what pisses people like me off about DU and other left leaning web sites.

I live in Virginia..I am about to move to SC..and it is ASSUMED by many here that I am some racist uneducated POS simply because of where I live.I'm tired of it.I don't judge individuals based on what state they live in and I'm sick of people judging EVERY southerner based on some BULLSHIT ELITIST attitude about the south

I am PRO CHOICE..I am about as PRO gay rights as it gets on this site.I AM the one who has fed THOUSANDS of abandoned animals over the years at our local non kill shelter.I have literally spent thousands taking care of our local critters who were abandoned...in many cases by people outside our area who think there little kitty or dog will be fine if dropped off where it is warm(hint...they starve to death).I AM FOR more regulation of the scumbags who are destroying our environment.I am FOR more oversight and less loopholes for companies like exxon and the megabanks

I am possibly the most animal rights activist on this sight..I'm not PETA..I dont Kill animals..I save them.I built a kennel system to take animals the system had scheduled for euthanasia...I had people at the shelter send me animals who could be saved even though they were scheduled for euthanasia.I have had up to 20 animals at a time here that would otherwise have been euthanized.I have found a home for or adopted myself every animal who ever entered my property.

I'm not a bad guy

I AM THE SOUTH...just like I am the north or the Midwest..or Cali or anywhere else.We aren't the enemy.

If people would get off the backs of the good ones in the south and work to turn the mods/indies we can take the south from them.

Lets get off the south hate and work to make the south part of OUR country.There are more of us like me than many here give us credit for.HELP US
