Keeping Austin Weird!

For the record, I haven't had much to post over here, or on any other blog, lately. Hoping something great pops up soon...

I was driving downtown last night for a meeting. Since I don't get down there very often, I decided to cruise through the University of Texas area to check out the co-eds scene along The Drag.

As I was passing the now shuttered Tower Theater/Tower Records/Folett's bookstore, I noticed a dude holding a cardboard sign. Nothing really unusual about that along The Drag. But I could not help but laugh when I read his sign:

Buy my new CD at Awesome! A hyper-linked panhandler's sign!

Anyways, as you can tell, advertising worked. I memorized his user name and checked out out his myspace page.

Just a little proof that Austin really is a music town.
