Yup, the Real World has pulled out from Philly at the last minute. People spent years trying to bring them here, and now they are gone. Our stupid mayor doesn't even care, of course. Just like when Disneyquest pulled out last minute and left a one block hole in center city. We just can't get a break!

LMAO! Let me get this straight. The teamsters were SO LAZY, that they drove MTV, a cultural powerhouse, out of the whole state!? Oh gotta love those teamsters.

The best place in the US is Nevada. Gambling is legal here and so is prostitution.

Isn't it ironic that the word "prostitution" has the word "tit" in it?

Not exactly. MTV wasn't ALWAYS bad. There used to be a time when it was good, but that was, like, 13 or something years ago.

They aren't ALWAYS bad. They put Happy Tree Friends on their channel(Mtv europe only). So that's a good thing.

It is a shame that "The Real World" had to pull out because of labor problems.

Lemme get this straight, the Real World pulled out at the last minute, and this makes you mad WHY? Personnaly, I beleive the "Real World", and all those shows that are an exact duplicate of it with a different name, suck! Those shows are for morons who dont have a "Real Life". Anywho, be glad you dont live here in New Jersey. I mean, cant get MUCH worse up here, can it... Oh god I hope not.

Meh, I don't care much for Real World. However, unions do suck and shouldn't be allowed to control everything like I hear they do. I hearsay that lots of companies are movies to the outskirts of Philly because it's much freer there. And yeah, John Street sucks, he doesn't give a damn about anything here, it's a surprise he even responds to anything, there's a street around here where there have been so many accidents, and he doesn't even flinch. Installing simple street lights would have done the trick, but no. The petty needs of the people do not matter. I am not being racist here, but I am merely suggesting that the only reason he's popular is because a majority of the population here is African-American. I think that's BS, and that there should be some restriction on voters, like you'd at least have to have graduated High School or something.

I watched MTV 13 years ago. It sucked then, with the exception of Remote Control. I never understood why people wanted to watch music videos for hours on end.

I'm not sure if I'm happy or disappointed about the Real World situation. However the disneyquest thing really pissed me off. I also don't think the Olympics will ever come to Philly... If it isn't because of the unions, it will be because of the sports fans...

Every state has a city that the world has come to ignore. They become cities for the old folks, a place that us young people tend to avoid.

Yeah, now they just knocked down Veteran's stadium. It's the only remotely interesting thing happening in town. All I hear on local television is that there was a drug bust, or there was a shooting, or someone was murdered, etc. I am tired of it. Too gloomy... The only thing that keeps me here is the anime community here. What keeps other people here?
Hope to hear from you all,
Brett :P

Another example of how useless unions are:

Near where I live in Florida, there was a hotel complex completed recently called "The Diplomat" (Hollywood, FL).

The complex was to be built entirely using union money, built by union workers, and eventually owned and operated by some union. It was to be a shining example of what unions could accomplish when working together.

Well long story short, it was so far behind schedule opening that they had to cancel most of the conventions that were booked for the first year (which were ironically union conventions). The hotel was finally completed at an "estimated" cost of over 800 million all from a union trustee fund.

The hotel claimed the money in the pension fund would be replaced as they had exclusive rights to many large union conventions.
http://enr.construction.com/news/bizlabor/archives/020923.asp

The hotel has incredibly lucrative waterfront property on the Intracoastal Waterway which they used to build a giant air conditioning plant and machine shop with huge windows so you can look in and see all the union employees running around looking busy.

You would think union employees who preach about things like "protecting the futures of employees" wouldn't throw away money to be used for the pension plans of their workers.

Tom, consider yourself and your town lucky. The Real World is the most whack show on Televison, It's fake and teaches people to judge each other and is definitively not reality. They always pick the people with the nicest bodys and the most money so they can live in a house and all have sex with each other. Blah blah, Whoohooo, who really watches this ? Tom, You are lucky your fine city will not be contaminated with this crap.
