Sorry to have been gone for so long! I sort of ran out of steam for this blog, but with SXSW coming up in a month, Austin pride should start flowing out of me again.

It might be hiding in I hate tourists form, but we shall see!

In the mean time, What do you love about Austin?

Personally, my favorite places would have to be in the Zilker Park area. It's such a beautiful and friendly area, with a nice aura around it. Everyone is always happy, and playing with their friends, children, and/or pets!

Well thank you! What are your favorite things about Austin? This blog becomes inactive when I have no inspiration. Believe it or not, some of the really weird or original things in Austin seem completely normal to me because it’s the only place I’ve ever really lived.

More SXSW bands have been announced!

Austin bands that have been added to the list include:

Dikes of Holland 

Edison Chair

Elias Haslanger

Miles Zuniga

You don’t just have to submit your favorite things about Austin! You can submit anything Austin related. Your favorite band’s next gig, your next gig, and heck, even your pesky neighbor who keeps trying to get you to go to his (or her) show.

Send us cool graffiti (with where you found it), cool photos, a new restaurant that just opened, or the place that always seems to get over looked.

Things you did as a kid living in Austin, but aren’t around anymore (and things that are still around…). I’ll admit I’m a sucker for throwbacks, and I’ve lived here my entire life, so if I don’t recall it, I can definitely find someone who does!
