I Am a Liar

In an earlier post I had mapped out my path of exodus from the great city of Houston, Texas. I decided instead to skip the metroplex swap of the old one for the new and, instead, made a bee line straight to the source. A residence in Austin, Texas. This is where I live now in case you didn't know yet. As infrequently as I update this blog, you probably already know. It was a good move.

The 8 year depression is over. You did the right thing voters. America is coming back baby!

Scandinavian Pleather


Malmö, Sweden's very own bearded thrashers Sista Sekunden will be playing Monday Nov.3 at the White Swan. Their lyrics are fun, positive and completely in Svenska. So bring your travelers guidebook.

Show at 9. All ages. 6 bux.

Also throwing down: Pretty Little Flower, Battle Rifle and newcomers Fan Death

What goes around...


Dear Republican voters -

It's going to be painful, I know, but the initial sting of loss will turn to a mild yet acceptable ache on November 5th. Not unlike an extended bout with the common cold. Entirely manageable. However, if you find that proper execution of Constitutional Law is too intolerable, there are many support groups that will help to ease your troubled mind. But rest assured, greed and ignorance are not going anywhere my friends. There is absolutely no need to worry about our country becoming Socialist or Marxist either(since most of you don't quite understand what Marxism is anyhow). You can thank your lobbyists and your congressman in corporate America's back pocket for that. My condolences... Not!

Haven't posted in a while, so now I will bombard you. Thanks for reading.


I'm moving.

A. Houston. I live here now. I will miss people here and visit them regularly. I will not miss the city. Except for the plethora of badass taqueria's.

B. Fort Worth. I will move here for 2 months and hang with Dad. Then I will quickly leave.

C. Austin. I will call this place home, hopefully, for quite some time.

I do what I want.

This is the shot we took driving past Hollywood Cemetery in Orange, TX about 3 days after Ike rolled through. The plots are maybe 100 yards from Sabine Lake. (The circled areas indicate some of the unearthed coffins)

Here's a closer shot from AP.

Apparently blues legend Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown was among those "relocated."

Dude, where's my car?

I bailed. To Fort Worth. Thought I was ready but I'm not into those kind of extreme sports. Oh but the drive was mildly brutal. That counts, right?

Maybe next time Eisenhower.

To my friends braving it: may St. Menard, Saint of Bad Weather (and possibly giant bird hats) protect you.
