The stigma of Iowa being lame is the best douchebag/fucktard deterrent around! whoop whoooop! I mean if I wanted to hang with pretentions pricks i'd totally move to Seattle (or even at times MPLS), but I don't.

    I lived in Iowa for 5 years and in DSM for one of those. It's not as happening as bigger cities, but it does have its charm and definitely sets the scene for many great, epic stories. I miss me some Court Avenue, music at Blues on Grand, crazy nights at Drink and Hessen Haus, and winding down at Village Inn! Plus, all the awesome festivals!

    Des Moines sucks. I know because I had the majorly unfortunate displeasure of living there fore 11 months. (Moved for work.) People are close minded. Everyone is white. All the chicks carry tacky Coach monogrammed bags, most of which are FAKE. The nightlife is basically non existent. The music scene is non existent as well. Lets put it this way, Des Moines makes Kansas City and Minneapolis look like New York, okay? Its THAT bad.
