Austin Party Train: We’re baaaaaaaaaaaaaack

And we’re back folks.  It’s been a crazy couple of weeks but hoping this PT is now fully back on the tracks.  Johnny Cash tribute action, free food and drinks, guy forsyth, tegan and sara, terri hendrix, patrice pike, mickey and the motorcars and the generally tricky weather should keep you on your toes this weekend. Before we get into the nitty gritty, here’s some entertainment:

  • Browser based to do app, cleverly called TeuxDeux
  • Kind of like people of walmart… except like on regular streets n stuff: Poorly Dressed dot Com
  • Letters from a jerk. This guy takes it too far… and its hilarious: Craigslist is amazing
  • Live Avatar Role Playing. Paint yourself, frolic around the woods. Because thats normal: LARP
  • I wish I played… but even if i dont have the musical stylings, I can at least admire these geetars.
  • You’ve seen Selleck Waterfall Sandwich? Try this! Hint: It involves Bea Arthur

So now that we’re back, recommence sending me amazingness and I’ll make sure to get it in here. Twitter is @AusPartyTrain and I’m rebuilding the PT list since I can’t find the original.

Yours in being tricked by the weather,
