a diverse city in the heart of the san gabriel valley. There are many different aspects to the population, some are rich, some middle class and theres the ghetto portion in the north west. Old town pasadena and the surrounding area is becoming a trendy, rich area and bringing in yuppies by the barrel. The schools in dena are not of the highest quality and are generally thought as shitholes. Also there is the rose bowl and the rose parade which both get old. Also called Crown City sometimes.
Crown City Entertainment is one of the best labels out of pasadena.

city NOT SUBURB in California.
all the public schools suck so there are about 15 private schools in the area.
private school kids and public school kids are basicly separated into their own groups and don't intermix.
known for Rose Parade. it something you like till you're about 6 and realize its the same every year. also has the Rose Bowl. which kinda sucks from all the traffic when there is a USC/UCLA game.
they are putting a lot of nice and expensive stores in old town because there are a lot of rich people in pasadena.
then there is the ghetto-ish area near altadena that people are scared to drive through.
Pasadena is the not-suburb of L.A.

also known as the dena, a wonderfully boring place in Maryland outside of Glen Burnie and next to Severna Park, not as dirty as Glen Burnie but not as snobby as Severna Park
Hey! Aren't you glad you live in Pasadena and not Glen Burnie and Severna Park?

(Pasadena, Md.) The most horrible place one could ever live. It's incredibly boring since there is nothing at all to do besides smoke weed and sit around and maybe go to McDonalds or the even more riveting- Pops (local gas stations that is known for selling to minors). Pasadena is the land of rednecks, white gangsters(who are not gangster at all), and bitchy preps. Many of the population owns a boat, but dosen't go anywhere or do anything on the boat. There are no fun partys- just small get togethers where everyone proceeds to get fucked up over 2 beers or a twisted tea. Any good person would want to get the hell out of here before there absorbed into this hell.
Carlos- hey wanna go to a party in Pasadena?
Tony - Hell no man, ide rather not have two natural lights then get hit on by a 13 year old.

(Maryland Area) A very small living suburb that some may refer to as the "redneck ghetto". The Dena is possibly the only place in america to find toothless panty sniffers, badass gang bangers and anorexic drug addicts all in one cozy little area. Strictly recommended for visiting purposes only.Once you get in... you'll never get out.
"My brother was shot in the Dena yesterday when he was caught banging his neighbors husband... and dog at the same time."

Pasadena..otherwise known as "the dena" has two things. Gas stations and grocery stores. There's basically nothing else except a few fast food restaurants and the roadhouse. Our schools suck and most of them are poor as God knows what and there's absolutely nothing to do when you're bored unless you wanna go mini golfing. The Dena is chock full of rednecks, preps, wiggers, and posers. A lot of people hate it here....but a lot more of us like it. Mind you..we don't like it enough to stay around and raise our kids here.

Person 2: "Sweet!"
