Formula 1, soccer, and crappy pro basketball? Austin is truly becoming a world class European city.

It's happening in all progressive cities. Portland, Seattle, LA, Chicago, Orlando, Philly, Austin, ect....

It's the rural towns still enjoying watching their kids bash their brains in on Friday nights, apparently.

Ha.  I just watched "DAzed And Confused" over the weekend.  Man, this movie was not nearly as good/fun/funny as I thought.  It's just not good.  and while film and music are intertwined (exhibit a, martin scorcese, exhibit b cameron crowe) DAC pounds you over the freaking head with popular songs that give the viewer a certain nostalgia, they don't really move the story along.

it's a pretty thin plot, with these long shots without dialogue, set to classic rock songs that, if the songs weren't in the film or if they used soundalikes, that's a whole different movie.  not without charm but, just not nearly as good as i thought.

and i did the math:  those high schoolers would all be in their 70s at the youngest.  ha.

Richard Linklater made one good movie, called Slacker, and everything he has done since is crap. He and Wes Anderson are the antithesis of filmmaking, and not even good in a 'recent Godard movies kinda suck but they are interesting to talk about' sense.

He was gonna be my third example. Todd Stolondz also comes to mind, but I don't think he is a bad filmmaker, just really really really dark; like, "makes Taxi Driver look like a romantic comedy" dark.

Never saw "Slacker" but know of it.  and looking at his IMDB, I've only seen "Boyhood".  (overrated, *clap clap clap-clap-clap*.

Point being "Dazed and Confused", i had such fond memories of it or was like, "oh that's a great movie!"  Did not hold up.  It has a nostalgia for a certain age group and, as the cliche goes, is a "love letter to the _____'s" (in this case, the 70s) but, would venture to guess anyone under the age of 25 or so, that gives zero farks about the music that is itself a character in the movie, I think they'd find it pretty boring.  it's a thin plot as I said and...just didn't hold up.

had to look him up ( i know the name,just not his movies).

So funny!  I was just thinking a few days ago, "I should watch 'Welcome To the Dollhouse' again sometime..."  Brillaint movie.  that's all I've seen of his.  I thought Solondz did "Ghost World", which is also brilliant.  (Note:  I've seen neither one in at least 15-20 years).

a great 90s alt film is "Trees Lounge".  Written and I believe directed by Steve Buscemi.  I watched it when it came out and watched it again about 10 years ago.  Held up.  It's one of 'those' movies - speaking of 'dark' movies - that has elements of comedy, drama, pathos, and so on.  If you haven't seen I highly recommend it.

basic facts are Steve Buscemi is a loser barfly.  He meets an underage girl (Chloe Sevigny) and things happen.

For Solontz, I'm thinking particularly of "Happiness." I like black comedies but there is no room for hope in this movie. The artistry is admirable, but I didn't find it entertaining or even interesting.

And compared to Happiness, Ghost World is the Sound of Music but with no Nazia.

Never watched Slacker either.
Watched D&C a few years ago and It is one of those movies better left where it was.

I'm liberal myself but this comment is the sports tab epitome of liberal douchey bullshiat. I went to public college in NYC and it was a pretty much a conservative environment (not necessarily Republican-voting, I mean more culturally overall) as a direct result of the fact that so many students were either immigrants or first genration Americans. Religion and having a better life than your parents played a big role vis-a-vis people's mentality, as opposed to private schools where people seem to be vicariously proud of their parents' accomplishments but embarrassed by their parents' wealth, which played a big role in class discussions (for context I spent my freshman year at NYU, a really white/rich school but much more liberal culturally). Soccer was everywhere but no one watched minor leagues like MLS. The people I've met who watch MLS all fall under the "transplant from Oregon/Washington/California relentless liberal who can't understand why we do things differently in the east" stereotype.

All that said I noticed you left NY off your list of progressive cities so maybe I'm proving your point for you.

^^^ at a public urban commuter school the people with best clothes and the most perfect hair are all international students who pay out of state tuition and have their own apartment nearby even though they don't work... life is complicated

Austin isn't a progressive city guy.

It really isn't. It's a rich white liberal city with a large conservative population.

We paint murals of social problems so we don't have to deal with them.

rc3ntexas: / Hope Reddick does well for your D-Backs


Wish I could say.....Bally's got the rights to what used to be Foxsports AZ.  For literally 10+ years every Snakes game was on TV.  now you have to buy the Bally's App for the Snakes, Suns, and Coyotes.  I don't give a shiat about hokcey but, good and bad I'd watch the Snakes.  not any more.

we did go to Friday's home opener.  I only recognized like, 2-3 players.  Sucks.

Hell the other day, MLB Network, which I do have on my package, was advertising "A's vs Snakes at 1240PM!"  I was stoked - i figured the TV rights thing, MLB would take priority over Bally's regional telecast.

1240PM:  "THIS GAME IS NOT AVAILABLE IN YOUR REGION".  fark!!!
