The wicked irony of enjoying a cocktail on everybody chill out day is that it takes you 24 hours to get your cocktail served to you.

Y'know, Austin used to be described as "laid-back".

About twenty years ago.

If it doesn't go well, he can blame everything on Bart.

I just spent an over an hour to get south across the river, that sucked, but it was a burn ride, that's chilled out.

Doing my part. Your move, Austin.

Also, the 420 fest was this past weekend. How much chillin' is necessary?

It must indeed be stressing to be a hipster douche surrounded on all sides by redneck trash.

My family moved to Austin in the 80's, when Austin was much smaller, much hipper and much easier to live
in. My folks moved from that area about 15ish years ago because it was just becoming too "boom town".
When we first moved there we lived on the very edge of civilization in North Austin near McNeal and 183.
Once you  passed that, it was almost nothing but cows..There were a couple of strip malls at Anderson
Mill and at the 620 intersection, that's about it..I couldn't live there today...

fark you.  NO no no not personally just a fark you in general, I mean for posting that and making me feel like shiat about this farking town city.  Austin is not farking weird any more.  Its farking L.A.  Its farking houston, its farking crowded and I farking hate it.

Do you know how wrong those stickers are now?  Support your local business?  REALLY?!?! Good luck finding a local business amoungst all the god damn farking chains that have moved in and edging out all the local businesses. God damn farking condos are going up farking everywhere.  Motherfarking god damn trafic jams everywhere you go every god damn hour of every god damn day.

You know what, I. I. Im just going to go get one last farking drink and go to bed cuz now im pissed off again.  I would go to the back porch but now I hear nothing but traffic and sirens all night.

fark Austin.  I'm getting the fark out of here.  God damn invaders from Kali done farked it all up too far to ever save.  Four million farking people here.  God damn it.

They're a couple of days early for 4/20
 
2017-04-18 01:58:48 AM  
It's a good idea.  I mean, telling everyone to relax on Anal Sex Day is important, after all.

Chill out dude...

Austin, Texas, the only place in the world where bums dress in Armani suits and where Rolex watches; and the millionaires wear Bermuda shorts and flip-flops.

Yeah, left Austin in '88.... do miss the low key vibe.....and Club Foot, Antone's, Margarita's on the deck out on the lake, the original County Line, the smoked chicken tacos in the hubcap room in the original Chuy's....
Do they still have a birthday party for Eyore?

cwheelie: Do they still have a birthday party for Eyore


It's uhh, different now.  A lot different.  Less hippy and more "bring money".

Mr. Shabooboo: we lived on the very edge of civilization in North Austin near McNeal and 183.


I am sitting here in my office less than a half mile from that intersection. No longer the edge of anything

I have been on two calls this week with Fark's favorite aerospace defense contractor and it's only Tuesday.
On Thursday I have to spend all day with a DHS inspector. So instead of chilling out, I'm preparing for that. I'll have to wait until next week to chill out.

Oh, and I second just about everything orclover said. What's weird about sitting in traffic?

austin is a stupid sh*thole now that makes san antonio look like a viable option.  i'm glad i'm not there anymore

chwheelie - yes is it still celebrated, but it is so crowded now that you can't even throw a blanket down and have a spot. I don't go anymore, it's not fun.

Raspil - I moved in 1984, went to Junior and High School here, and watched it grow and grow. However, it has lost just about all of its former charms. It may be fun for trust fund kids and the wealthy, but it is not for middle-class people. If you bought a house in the 90's, you got a lottery ticket. If not, forget it now. A friend of mine had a house on Rainey St where the Container Bar is now. He bought half a block in 70's for a pittance, held out until a couple of years ago, and got 10 mil for the property. Plus the traffic sucks. Plus there is no decent mass transit, plus the etc..etc..etc.. Hey, it was good run!

As a local carpenter by day and musician by night, I'm doing my part to keep it weird, while still walking a capitalist line. The traffic sucks, but all those people mean lots of money to be made in the coming years at least in my chosen trades.
