If pride can be quantified in terms of stickers, NorCal is bursting with pridefulness, and SoCal just doesn’t care.
10 relevant shopping results for NorCal stickers, and just 2 for SoCal.
There has always been a debate on whether or not pride is a virtue. The definition does include “inordinate self esteem: conceit.”
The sticker market might not prove NorCal narcissism once and for all but it does prove one thing — that NorCal-ers love their stickers.
Another interesting way to compare the two regions is by looking at their cultural contributions to society. Specifically, I want to look at music — do famous S.F. and L.A. bands give any insight into regional distinctions? Consider my list:
- Red Hot Chili Peppers
- The Doors
- Guns N’ Roses
- Bad Religion
- 98 Degrees
- The Grateful Dead
- Dead Kennedys
- Jefferson Airplane
- DJ Shadow
- Steve Miller Band
- Counting Crows
- Hot Tuna
The Beatnik hippy attitude is well represented in San Francisco, while L.A. (and Long Beach) has produced some of the West Coast’s most identified with bands (98 Degrees withstanding). You choose! More complete lists are linked.
Fire away at me with your hate mail (or love mail) with any of your favorite NorCal versus SoCal insights and propaganda!
