You Might Be From Salt Lake City If... Corey O'Brien |

You Might Be From Salt Lake City If...

Another day, another list of Utah and our quirky characteristics.  This time it's a list of the emotional and social scars growing up in Salt Lake has left you with.  I suspect that even if you grew up here, but aren't from here you've been indoctrinated into fry sauce, dipping your fries in ice cream or that Utah accent.

It's not really your fault.  It's your parents fault so blame them for everything, decide you were wrong, own your problems and read this list of the "12 Signs You Grew Up In Salt Lake" from the people over at Newscastic.

Are We That Predictable? Corey O'Brien |

Are We That Predictable?

So we are all polygamist drinkers...or something like that.  If you have travelled outside of our state you know it's coming.  Someone will ask you where you are from and once you say "Salt Lake City" or "Utah" you know other questions will follow. "Oh, are you Mormon?" "Do you know any polygamists?" "Wait, you like beer?"  It's our burden and as there are missionaries spreading the religious word the rest of us have to debunk the assumptions that others have about us.  Movoto has come up with a list of these assumptions and while it may not be complete it certainly is a good list of items some of us have had to straighten out from time to time.  Read Movoto's list of Salt Lake City Stereotypes here.

Codi Jordan Interview

 

Codi Jordan is raising money for his new album so lets help the guy out. Donate a little bit of money and support our music scene and Codi Jordan Band. Here is the link: http://www.indiegogo.com/Codisnextrecord. I think he needs around $3,000 more to finish the album so anything you can throw in will help. Listen to the interview featuring the song "The Little Red Dress." If you dig it throw a couple bucks in the bucket. Thanks. - Corey

Here is a video of Codi explaining more how this works:
