Damn, she sure is one overpriced biatch. Then again, I guess if I had the money, I'd have my own private helicopter and limo, too.

Or better yet, the SR-71 Blackbird.

And HereISitSoBrokenHearted:

You're right about Mellencamp. I know he sometimes helps out at IU. Does he still live and record in Belmont? And I had no idea that Jim Davis still lives outside of Muncie.
2003-09-08 01:58:12 PM  
John Mellencamp, Elaine Irwin (his wife), AND Jim Davis live together?

In Muncie?

Yeah, Johnny Couger lives right around here. He's a punk and she drives a Hummer H2.

True enough...Kentucky can have Martinsville also

Phoxxy: You forgot Joyce Dewitt...along with the rest of America

I dunno if we want to claim her. I think she only attended school here. Wasn't she born is in West Va or Va or something? I know it was Virginia at least.

"He was very healthy" and has no history of illness, Stoner said.

.. good to see a stoner moving up in politics.
2003-09-08 01:59:46 PM  
Strange inbred freakish peeps spawn from that part of Indiana.

That's what we say about people who live in the non-daylight saving time part of state.

At least I can blame my freakishness on spending my childhood summers swimming in the lovely water of Lake Michigan.
2003-09-08 01:59:49 PM  
Yes, Mellenhead's latest album (a not too bad blues cover effort) was recorded in Belmont, located in wonderful Brown County, Indiana.
2003-09-08 02:00:12 PM  
I wish it was Dick Lugar instead. He's detestable.

2003-09-08 02:00:30 PM  
Mellencamp has a house right on Lake Monroe where SR 446 crosses the resevoir
2003-09-08 02:01:50 PM  
Oh yeah. Greg Kinnear is from Logansport, Indiana. Just remembered that one.
2003-09-08 02:02:32 PM  
Indiana wants me, Lord I can't go back there.
2003-09-08 02:02:40 PM  

No way in hell am I surrendering to Kentucky. Just because I grew up around Shelbytucky, Greentucky, Ostucky, and Masterbatesville...well, that doesn't mean that I want to be considered one of the mutant population.
2003-09-08 02:03:01 PM  
It is George Bush's fault.
2003-09-08 02:03:05 PM  
John Mellencamp goes to IU Football games religiously and I ate chicken wings with him =D
2003-09-08 02:03:34 PM  
phoxxy :

I'm sure Indiana is a very nice state. My dad hails from there actually, but come 'on. Jim Davis isn't that famous.
2003-09-08 02:04:17 PM  
Oo.. speaking of Brown County... I want to go see the leaves down there this year. If you are ever passing through Indiana in the fall, a definite stop is in Brown Couty. Very beautiful. Nice little town of Nashville that is nearby. Quaint little shops on the main road you take towards the park area.

Brown County State Park is okay, but if you can, get to Yellow Wood State Park, which is right nearby. Very beautiful too.
2003-09-08 02:04:33 PM  
Penguin...ok I got Greensburg, Batesville, Shelbyville..but what the heck is Ostucky??
2003-09-08 02:05:29 PM  
2003-09-08 02:06:03 PM  
The_Penguin_on_the_Telly: Shelbyville? Where abouts? I used to live there when I was a kid and still have some family from around there.
2003-09-08 02:06:41 PM  
Gray_Calx: Okay. Then Garfield is. :P
2003-09-08 02:07:49 PM  
Ok, since we've got so many Indiana Farkers in one place...who will admit to being a "Little Hoosier" in elementary school?

/sheepishly raises hand
2003-09-08 02:08:00 PM  
Hospital collapased over rushing Indiana governor .

Indiana governor collapased of the hospital.

if he has a brain anurism, i wish Gov. the best of luck ,my ex-roomate had one and lived but his short term memory was bad and his left side of his body was limp, he never got back to "normal" got depressed and shot himself
2003-09-08 02:08:09 PM  
Phoxxy, I'm going camping in Brown County in 2 weeks. Not the peak leaf season, but nice all the same.

*sigh* I love autumn in Indiana

2003-09-08 02:08:17 PM  
WTF is a little hoosier?
2003-09-08 02:08:18 PM  
Good ol' O'Bannon.......all for the schools and teachers..... Indianas schools are in the tank right now, and teachers are being layed off....
2003-09-08 02:09:53 PM  

Osgood. If you've ever been to the town I'm referring to, you will understand. Even though it should belong in Kentucky, I sure as hell don't want to belong to Kentucky.

I think we had two claims to national fame. One dumbass murdered his family over an arguement about a telephone bill. Another dumbass murdered some unlucky horny bastard that had been porking said dumbass' wife...while she was out porking another guy.

Kill the wife, I say. Even if I happened to be related to her.

/God help me for growing up in such a backwards place
2003-09-08 02:10:40 PM  
Wow. Two mentions of Brown County by Farkers today.

I'm feeling... well, not homesick. What's another word that means you have fond memories but still have no desire to ever live there again? That's what I'm feeling.
2003-09-08 02:11:00 PM  
eyesore, I have no idea what you're talking about. Having attended elementary school in NW Indiana (btw, screw you, godfather1011), our primary goal was not to get knifed on the way home from school.
2003-09-08 02:11:34 PM  
Lest us not forget Brooklyn, Indiana. Another place that belongs in Kentucky. *shudder*
2003-09-08 02:14:16 PM  

Used to live on Franklin Street a couple of years ago while I worked at Libbey-Owens-Ford. My mom used to live in a house on Michigan Road when I was younger. My ex-stepfather was a chiropractor in Shelbyville by the name of John Ramsey (and he once owned that farking plastic company there in town that I can't even remember the name of now).
2003-09-08 02:16:10 PM  
I did wireless cell site acquistion for Ameritech back in the day and completed over 200 sites in Indiana(mostly in the south) so I have been to plenty of small towns...scary, very scary.
2003-09-08 02:16:19 PM  

NW Indiana here too. Guess Lake Station schools were even worse than I thought. In fourth grade they made us join a history club to meet with other schools around the state where we made Indiana shaped cookies and contemplated the true meaning of the word Hoosier. Very exciting stuff.
2003-09-08 02:18:29 PM  

I sympathize. If there is one thing that Indiana will never run out of, it is small, creepy towns straight out of "Deliverance."

/oh, and they'll never run out of corn...or creepy little inbred children
2003-09-08 02:22:09 PM  
i've lived in indiana for like 15 years of my life. We have corn and the pacers, and thats about it. Oh ya, and really shiatty weather. Fear all of those who hail from indiana, we'll throw corn at you!!! MWAHAHAHAHH!!!
2003-09-08 02:22:30 PM  
The_Penguin_on_the_Telly: Holy shiat. East or west Franklin? I lived on W. Mechanic for like 5 or 6 years as a young kid and went to Hendricks Elementary for one year.
2003-09-08 02:22:52 PM  
Let's have a Brown County Fark Camping Trip!
2003-09-08 02:24:43 PM  
[image from free.inkfrog.com too old to be available]

The Palmer House is
ideally located in the heart of the "loop." With four restaurants and lounges,
an enclosed shopping arcade and a fitness center complete with steam room, sauna
and indoor pool, there is never a lack of things to do. This hotel offers modern
conveniences while maintaining its traditional elegance. For the leisure guest,
the hotel is within walking distance to Chicago's Theater District, museums,
summer festivals, shopping and restaurants. Guest rooms at the Palmer House
boast all the conveniences needed for taking care of business on the road.

Brown County Fark Camping Trip!

Finally! A Fark party for the Hoosier Farkers. I'm there!
2003-09-08 02:27:05 PM  
Hey Penguin

Was it Wellman-Thermal?
2003-09-08 02:27:16 PM  

East Franklin. In an old house behind the Salvation Army (just across the railroad tracks from that place that builds cabinets).
2003-09-08 02:27:24 PM  
The_Pengin_on_the_Tell: Oh and forgot to ask... did you ever hear anyone say to a young kid, "You look like you belong on Pike Street?"

Just curious. By today's standards it'd be considered a high racist remark. I'd go over to my grandmother's to play sometimes and I'd come into the house covered form head to toe in dirt. She used to say, "You need to take a bath. You look like you belong on Pike Street." For the longest time I as a kid I never knew what she meant until she told me that Pike Street is where all the black people lived. I don't think she was ever being racist, just an expression a lot of older folks would use around the area. I was kind of shocked when I found out what it meant.
2003-09-08 02:28:15 PM  
The_Penguin_on_the_Telly: Ah..no where that is. Do they still have Compton's ice cream in Shelbyville? Used to LOVE going there. Excellent ice cream.

Where were you? We had a Fark party in Indy in August.

Where were you? We had a Fark party in Indy in August.

You did? Apparently I missed out. Damn...
2003-09-08 02:32:52 PM  

Nah, wasn't Wellman's. I used to work there, too, once upon a time. That was when they let you keep the Disney glasses that weren't acceptable enough to pass inspection. I still have my two crappy glasses.

Damn, this is going to bug me. It's the factory over in the same direction as the big park in Shelbyville. I wish I could remember the name of the place now, but my memory is crap.
2003-09-08 02:33:08 PM  
what about jim nabors?
2003-09-08 02:35:25 PM  
Some of the best drinking binges I ever had were at the Slippery Noodle in Indy. Too bad I was only stationed at Ft. Benjamin Harrison for a few months.

Good times...good times...
2003-09-08 02:39:23 PM  

Yeah, I've heard that said before. I know it's still said by the older folks in town. I overheard a man (had to be well into his 70s) who lived at the apartments down the street say that to a little girl playing at the small, shiatty park (play in that hazard long enough, and yeah, you would be black). I remember asking my mom what that meant, and of course, in her Kentuckian way, she had to have "that talk" about "colored folks" with me. I'll never have that hour back.
2003-09-08 02:40:19 PM  
I wish it was Dick Lugar instead. He's detestable.

Too bad the brain hemorrhage couldn't have happened to Bush

Happy days to you, you rays of sunshine.
