And years later, nature will have her wrath on West Virginia just like she did on the jersey shore

Sissonville, WV ??

Really.

Thats right off I-77.

They should have gone down to Mingo county if they wanted to make it real.

MTV.. I hate you with the fiery passion of 10,000 suns. Stop. Please. Just stop.

They should just call it "Hold Mah Beer, I Wanna Try Somethin'".


In just a few weeks, it will be time to pack up the beach towels, tanning oils, and tanning oils

They said tanning oils twice.

Just never call it Sissonsville. The rubes hate it. I guess they must have mined out all the characters for the Jesco White show in Mongo area.

My job is in Nitro, so I'll make sure to wave from across the river Monday when I'm back in the office!

And you're right about the Sissonville/Sissonsville thing. I'm originally from Shady Spring (hence, the "Shady Short Busser" name) and it was the same issue there (Shady Spring/Shady Springs). I used to hear "there's only one Spring in Shady" ALL. THE. TIME. when I was growing up.

It will never be as good as The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. You can't beat a woman snorting rails in her hospital room right after giving birth.

I am from the north Ga mountains. Appalachia. The accents they have and the way they speak is more like Borderlands than Southern. WTF!!!?

I'd complain about how these shows don't accurately depict life in the south, but just this week I took a buddy some floodlights so he could skin a deer he'd hit with his truck.

Are they honest and hardworking (sarcasm), ignorant and proud of it, and take pride in nothing but being born in a hell hole? Yes, good. It will be accurate.

Can we just wish really hard for the executives at MTV to keep dying from poisoned cocaine until they finally stop assaulting us with this shiat?

MTV should take a culture foreign to the US that now lives in the US. It should be a culture that eats strange things like monkeys or dogs or bugs as part of its normal basic food groups. This culture should have really wierd ceremonial kit that they wear for wierd events like a girls first menstruation or a guys first wet dream.

Hmmm.....that sounds a bit National Geographicky........but maybe MTV is the National Geographic of the modern era....hence the shows about people who do nothing but drink and fark and dont work but live off their contrived celebrity.

Did you notice the caramel-skinned girl that appears briefly in some scenes? Also, there's a young black male in a later scene. Neither of them says anything. Were they imported from somewhere else just to add a little politically correct color?

Nevertheless... they almost had me convinced this was real until they showed the black woman complaining about the noise. Everyone knows that black people aren't supposed to be seen in white areas of WV after dark.

eh, there's two or three black people per town in WV, and Sissonville is close enough to Charleston to potentially have double that.

Still, that stuck out somewhat to me as well, as she somehow seemed more like an urban african american.

My parents worked for Heck's in Nitro for 2 years in the mid-80s, so we lived in Dunbar from 1985-87, then my dad got a job in Welch for my first two years of junior high. Those two years in Dunbar were probably the best of my childhood, the two in Welch were the absolute worst. When we moved to southwest VA in 1989, I actually wound up being treated for latent tuberculosis which was caught during a health exam for my new school. TB is supposed to be something a kid in the United States shouldn't have to worry about being exposed to, but somehow I managed to get it in Welch.

Lynch, Ky is way up on Black Mountain and it's 20% black, and yes, along with the area's Italians, most of these people were "imported" by mining companies as scab labor back during the Coalfield Wars. They joined up with the rednecks and they're all a lot more "hillbilly" than the ones MTV picked. Thank goodness reality shows are cheap or MTV might have gone to Romania to avoid the cost of union labor like Kevin Costner and the History Channel did.

Good point. Granted, I grew up in Kanawha county which is a bit more diverse... my Nitro High School had surprisingly many Indians. (dot not feather)

South Charleston High School was known back in the day for having more african americans, for instance, as was Capitol. The woman in the trailer doesn't resemble most west virginian african americans. There is no sensitive way to describe the difference between urban african americans and the ones outnumbered 100 to 1 in terms of personality and behavior.

Despite WV's political bias towards the GOP these days, this state has always had a large mixed race population, due to it not being a slave area back in the day. No one gives a shiat here. Go further south if you want that attitude in large quantities.

I know the reaction to "urban" can vary depending on context, but I'm fairly certain the term "country" isn't racially insensitive. That city / rural divide seems to exist in all groups.
