Austin Party Train: Ain’t No Rest For the Winners

Yes… I know it’s supposed to be “aint no rest for the wicked” but winning is really what we’re doing. Winning at life.

This week you can take a breather… only JayZ, Rob Zombie, Vallejo, Seth Walker, Robert Earl Keen, Tanya Tucker and Marcy Playground (What??). Oh and U2 cover band Mysterious Ways, Soul band Soul Track Mind, Asleep at the Wheel, Subdudes, Peter Bjorn and John, Rufus Wainright and Bruce Robison. Don’t forget lots and LOTS of free drinks/food, Regina Spektor, Art Night Austin, Steven Sondheim, Bollywood Blowout, Flametrick Subs and of course, the one and only 70s party @ Molotov.  Hmm. I guess you actually will be busy. Aint life grand? 🙂 

Before you rush off and buy tickets to the above, check these out:

  • Facebook fails. In a huge and embarrassing way: 
  • This guy scans receipts with funny stuff on them and then comments. Like “meat soup”:
  • 1000 awesome things: just a blog about when things go so right. like when there is enough toilet paper on the roll.
  • We all had them. Tragic awkward family photos. Turns out there is someone else that looked worse:
  • All of the epic viral internet things in the “you should have seen this” blog. Grapestomp, Charlie Bit Me, I can Haz Cheeseburger, etc.
  • Pictures of proud kids in front of their hilarious science fair projects like “which music will my cats like”, “what do my farts smell like” and “crystal meth, friend or foe.”
  • All the events around Texas as compiled by the Texas Dept of Transpo. Lots of fairs, festivals, fun: Events Catalog

Don’t forget free whataburger today btw: Show us Your Orange.

This weekend you can find me at Mickey Avalon and the 70s party. Probably some of the free stuff as well. And maybe the poetry slam. And kickball. Someday I will sleep.  If you crazy kids want to add something, email me! Also, if you’re a veteran, wholehearted thanks. 

Yours in platform boots and blue eyeshadow,
