OVERRATED! i live here and i make music that isnt typical house, rap, indie rock, rock or metal and i have nowhere to go. new and different is something nobody will allow or wants to touch. House music dominates over 50% of the clubs here as if its the "new big thing". and it was, in 1994! rap music has about 40% of the bars/clubs. oh yeah and most the clubs are as big as your apartment! there are a few larger bars/clubs but they still feel really small and they get so crowded you cant move and its all top 40 pop music.
looking for actors or to do a film project, GOOD LUCK!

they still claim Heather Graham as one of their own even though she moved out of milwaukee to L.A. when she was 12, long looonng before she was famous.
---a lot of famous indie bands (and even famous famous ones) skip over milwaukee. next time your fav acts go on tour ask yourself why so many skip milwaukee!
--looked into joining the green party and only 5 40 year olds show up for the meetings. im moderately liberal but big on the environment.
--every sunday 4 black people are on the news because 2 got shot and killed by the other 2 over the weekend. sadly im not kidding, at all.
--the brewers and the bucks wont pay for coaches and the teams cant make it to the playoffs.
--a lot of racism
--republicans seem to like it.
MUSICIANS AND FILM MAKERS RUUUUUUNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!
moving to chicago
---the hot girls at the clubs downtown tend to be "models". there are no models in milwaukee, they are strippers. all of them
--guys downtown all seem to be rich independent contractors or landscapers. yeah right
---i went and saw 2 dj's spin one night and they both totally totally blew their sets horribly beyond horrible. they ended the song at the synth build/bridge to the peak! if you dont get that, its like the guitar player throwing his guitar into the crowd before the song is over, but doing it 5 times during one show!
-advertised for actors/actresses and got 4 responses. 2 were from chicago.
--nobody is anybody around here in the music scene because no one besides the shitty house dj's can make a living on their music.
--the South Park episode where they send the guy from 2 years in the past to Des Moines says it all, only Milwaukee is 10 years behind and as far as the segregation goes its more like 50.
Situated along the picturesque banks of wondrous Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is the "hidden jewel of the Upper Midwest," biotch!
Oh, and there are also plans to create public internet "hotspots" downtown!
Repressed for many decades, this city has made vast strides since the late 80's. The city boasts a world class zoo, a one of a kind art museum, excellent food, million dollar condos, dozens of large festivals, a large number of parks, a renewed downtown, arts, theatre, and music. On the negative side, Milwaukee is still gripping with racial segregration, two seperate ghettos, failling inner-city schools, and a strange inferiority complex with its "big brother" to the south (Chicago).
O, and there are plans to create public internet "hot spots" downtown.
Underrated city. Blue-collar, hard working, friendly people. America's leading beer producer. Home to the greatest music festival ever. Has an awesome zoo, and a true architectural masterpiece in Milwaukee Art Museum. Incredibly, though leaky, ballpark, housing a team on the rise.
Sadly, there's not a lot to do in Milwaukee in winter. But in summer, it's awesome. I said so in the first paragraph above. Plus, there are some hot, nearly topless chicks everywhere.
Chicagoan 1: I'm bored. Let's go get drunk and have the time of our lives!
Chicagoan 2: Narly!
The name teenagers from Mequon, Shorewood, Brookfield and other suburbs will type into the Hometown field on their Facebook profile, instantly making them cooler. Slightly useful for Facebook pregaming once one is able to join his or her college network,

Largest City in Wisconsin. Population of close to 600,000 but on the decline. Unfortunately the city is best known by Coo Coo Cal's "In My Projects." Like most midwestern cities, Milwaukee is at it's best in the summertime when you can ride through the city and everybody is out with the whips on chrome and females with next to nothing on.

A city that began on the banks of the Milwaukee River and Lake Michagan in the 1830's. Shiltz, Blatz, Pabst, Miller, and many other breweries started here. The 1970's saw a decline in industry and Milwaukee was added to the rust belt city list. Deteriationg factories and homes litter the inner city, but downtown and the far east-side is sprawling. Million dollar condos on Farwell avenue, the re-birth of the Historic 3rd Ward, and Brady Street are just a few positives of Milwaukee's progress. Also just northwest of downtown used to be the worst area that you prayed that you woulnd't never to set foot in. Now the area near Johnson's Park is slowly improving and drug houses from this area are beind revitalized. Also gang violence has declined since the "Notorious 90's" when homicides reached there highest in 1991 with 168 murders. In 2004 homicides took a drastic dip to only 88, but then recoiled to the cities average of 125 per year. Homicides have stayed relitivley low lately in the city despite the growing number of shootings, because of the great care that homicide team in area hospitals give. There where approx. 640 shootings in 2005, that number skyrocketed to over 800 shootings in 2006. So far in April there have been 28 homicides, but once June, July and August roll around those numbers go up. Milwaukee will some day be a safer city, and don't think Milwaukee is a bad ass city(take a look at Camden NJ, New Orleans, and others). It is a very diverse city...more...
