Re: Sporting Kansas City

ugh, i'll take it over "tailgating" in a giant horrible parking lot. i think every time i've done it in kc it's rained and everyone is crowded into a car drunk and gross.

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

i think KC still is, also, but a lot of people seem to be making a lot of noise about how this is not true anymore, or won't be soon. not sure if that is objectively accurate but this rampant perception of KC becoming a low-level nashville with attendant and fast-paced yuppification is not helpful-...

Re: St. Louis/CWE studio gang skyscraper proposal

slightly out of date (from late august), but it shows how it's filling in the streetwall along kingshighway, something like the midwestern central park it was meant to be. there's still a few missing teeth...hope to have another tower fill the last big gap or two soon. this guy really will have rais...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

i'm going to have to re-watch the movie parenthood, not even sure i've seen it. i'm sure the reference is NOT FLATTERING. ha. really weird that the movie was set in st. louis (although the late 80s was a golden age of films set in the midwest, particularly st. louis but primarily chicago) but filmed...

I wish we would open the st Louis thread back up.i do have a deep love for St Louis but it's like the loser brother in the movie Parenthood (set in St Louis) in that a don't see a future for it's core and it will struggle for a long time. are you originally from st. charles county or something damn...

i commute to creve coeur inside 270 so its 15 minute easy car trip on olive. i *am* endlessly jealous of the people who commute by foot to downtown clayton- i’m under thirty minute walk to forsyth so i’d do it if i could. it’s a whole thang. the deep south city to west county commute when i worked w...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

i've said this elsewhere, but my main beef with STL is that the very real "cool factor" and abundant charm seems relatively outweighed by the "pain in the ass factor" of relatively bad traffic and attitude compared to KC or other cities. some cities are so cool and exciting it's worth an increase i...

Re: Boston in 3 days

everyone on the east coast likes to crap on philly but center city is probably the most enjoyable, varied, walkable, fine grained immediate downtownish built environment i've ever stayed in, in north america. i like other regions better but as far as a long weekend without a car, it's hard to beat t...

Quit your drivel. Next you’ll be talking about the St. Louis Steamers and “soccer USA” and how it’s the center of the soccer universe but are just now back peddling into an MLS team when the league has been around for decades. Enjoy your Expansion team. the blues are an Expansion team i'll take it....

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

When I ask why outsiders who lived in STL left, the common answer is around tense/uptight people, not crime, and those who stay is for the job. this one could also be related to the fact that there is a massive boomer population in st. louis, and less a regional characteristic. people tend to be fa...

He said that in STL, when shit hits the fan they run around like chicken with head cuttoff coming up with overly complex solutions to catch the flying shit. In KC, they unplug the fan. hahahahah. not going to argue this one, he may be on to something. the vast and varied mid century urban renewal s...

Re: We are getting a new airport!!!

i've been to maybe 40 airports and, to be honest, other than LAX and DIA, i am not sure i can picture in my mind the exterior of any one of them. i can picture aspects of the interior of a few airports in my mind, but not b/c of striking design--mostly b/c of some bad memory of being delayed and be...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

St. Louis has some of the best historic residential stock that I’ve seen available. Meh, I’m kind of with the kids on this one. St Louis has a fairly unique look. It’s just not one a lot of people really want, or the downsides to St Louis do not outweigh whatever charm someone might feel, and there...

Re: Rankings, lists, and such

St. Louis has some of the best historic residential stock that I’ve seen available. Pre-1900, handlayed brickwork, plasterwork is amazing and are all super cheap. They just don’t have as many young people who want to see a better urban society develop. Honestly, if I could stomach the city at all I...

I have no problem disliking both the Cubs and Cardinals, so I like to think I can adapt and still dislike the Fire quite a bit.

Re: Sporting Kansas City

I think it's something SKC should embrace. If for no other reason, it will resurrect some of the Missouri /Kansas borderline rivalry which the Cards / Royals doesn't satisfy. I'm sure StL will embrace a 3-city rivarly. Chicago and KC will be natural, and more and more, Trashville is becoming a heat...
