Keeping Austin Weird

While in Austin (which was one of the best weekends of my life – such an amazing city and friends, ah! ), I spent the remainder of a Book People gift card on a great book entitled Keep Austin Weird: A Guide to the Odd Side of Town by Austin’s very own creator of the “Keep Austin Weird” slogan, Red Wassenich.

What a terriffic book! It’s a little dated (shows the Intel building as still standing), but it’s got all the amazing intricacies of Austin that I want to take with me and share with those who have never been. I may have to tape up little peep cards over photos of Leslie, in case my future host family wants to take a look, but I’m proud of everything in here.

Back in Dallas now, and I’m already perusing through the book with a misty-eyed longing for Austin. No offense, Dallas.

A bit of Austin
