I know, I know. I hung up my spurs. Sort of.
My name is Kyle Weiss. I wrote formerly as “Gay Rodeo,” of God Hates Reno, and there is one thing I can say about myself: I’m one tenacious son-of-a-breadbasket.
God Hates Reno was only the beginning, and while fun, needed to turn into something else. Rather than try and re-assimilate it in a fashion that you wouldn’t recognize, start filling up the page with ads and be something it wasn’t, it was decided to let it die young and pretty, true to itself, and leave behind a small, trashy legacy.
Reno needs to reinvent itself if its going to survive. I firmly believe there’s room for sites like God Hates Reno, but Reno needs not only this, but more.
Ken Manz (author of theurban.blogs.com) was the man behind the scenes helping me make GHR a wonderful nook of the web. Burncards.com will strive to provide daily helpings of the stuff that makes life interesting – with a focus on news, music, opinion, art, technology, politics, and more. We will have a solid focus on everything, INCLUDING Reno, to give Reno its one and only site that is not only relevant to Reno, but the world. As Reno itself should be. Think of it as Reno-Plus.
Don’t worry, we’ll still tell it like it is, but we’re exiting grade school and graduating to something more. This is a good thing. If you liked God Hates Reno as it was, we encourage you to make your own version. Part of why we are moving on is because life evolves, and so do we. So should you, so should Reno, but all should keep that which makes us special.
So come on over and belly up to the bar at Burncards, we’re betting we’ll make it worth your while!
Spurs on the wall, forever tall…
