...or is it Austinian?
Regardless, I finally bit the bullet this year and made the decision to pack up and move from my creatively-dead southern Oregon hippybilly town and find someplace where I felt like I actually belonged. Someplace where I could casually mention a theory about the latest Spider-Man arc without getting blank stares in response. Someplace with live music. Someplace with really, really good BBQ. Someplace where I could catch a movie premiere or sneak preview to review for my website (www.bleepinggeek.com
). Someplace with actual technology jobs (the highest tech thing here in Grants Pass is cropping photos for a jewelry catalog). Someplace where it's actually summer for more than a week a year.
Well... guess what? Turns out that Austin, TX is just about perfect.
So, this is a call to all of my fellow Spill fans in Austin - HEEEELLP MEEEE!
Where are the good places to live in Austin?
Best comic book shops?
Best bars for a movie geek to hang out in?
Best places to eat?
What do you like best about Austin? What don't you like?
What's midday traffic like? Hell, what does it smell like downtown? I don't care - I just want to know everything I can about the city I'll be calling home from people who actually live there.
