A Melancholic Day in Austin, TX

I was born and raised in Austin, yet, there’s a part of me that just doesn’t feel like I belong. Which is a bit surprising, even to me. I mean, I’m vegan, I love music, I love quirky vintage things, so what gives? Austin should be a haven for me!

Maybe it’s the surge of people moving in who have changed this city. Maybe it’s the Continue reading

Support Your Local Filmmakers!

So I’ve spoken before about my brother and his film making adventures. I told you all about the craziness of catering for his last film this past summer. Well, I am really excited to be asking a very big favor from you all. He has a new project in the works with some fellow filmmakers and they are in need of some funding. They are going about it through indiegogo and are almost to their desired amount, they just have a little more to go.

Soo, if you support Austin’s local filmmakers this is a great opportunity to help out. Every dollar makes a huge difference and my brother, his co-workers, and I would greatly appreciate any help! And of course, you won’t be giving and not receiving. They have a lot of awesome gifts for everyone that donates, including an autographed DVD, your name in the credits, posters, and even props!

If anyone is interested please check out their indiegogo page and donate! Even just $5 will make a huge difference.

Thanks!

A SXSW Overview

SXSW. One long chaotic mess of bands, music, technology, and film. How does that not sound awesome? I was absolutely excited to go this year as one of the websites I write for got me a wristband and press pass to go and cover the festival and even interview bands. Yeah, not exciting at all. The whole experience was actually so very stressful but absolutely awesome at the same time. My week was filled with texts from band managers setting times, changing times, walking all over with tons of equipment, late nights seeing shows then going home completely exhausted wanting nothing more than to sleep but having to stay up almost all night uploading pictures and writing recaps. But oh the memories.

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you about this really cool band I found recently.
