Sorry I didn’t update while I was actually in Austin. I was busier than I thought I would be, but I will try to update within the next week.
Not going anywhere near Chicago but the sentiment is still the same. Also The Blues Brothers rules.
It’s crazy hot in Texas this weekend.
I will start this off by saying I’m not very picky when it comes to beer choices. As long as it’s cold, refreshing, and doesn’t just taste like water with a little color added (I’m looking at you Budweiser) I’ll drink it. Being in roller derby for as long as I have PBR has always been the choice for most of my bar/derby bout experiences. Not so in Austin where they serve Lone Star Beer everywhere. Both The Texas Rollergirls (flat-track) and The Lonestar Rollergirls were sponsored by Lone Star.
All in all it’s a pretty good beer and I find myself still picking up a six pack from time to time. The best way to describe it though was from this quote I found on showmebeer.com-
This is a beer for hot weather. Not just warm weather, hot weather. I’m talking about a heat index over 100 degrees.
*Note:When looking up info on Lone Star I found out they are owned by Pabst of Pabst Blue Ribbon, makes sense.
Nothing really to do with this year’s trip, I just find this hysterical. Though I did hear this gag at least twice last year.
As you know, l’m quite keen on comic books. Especially the ones about superheroes.- Bill, Kill Bill Vol.2
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge comic fan-boy and I try to stop into any local comic book shop wherever I visit. Now most shops I visit are little corner places that are no bigger than the average barbershop. Not Austin Books and Comics, it was huge and had nearly everything (except Venture Bros. action figures but whatever).
I ended up getting some Green Lantern:Blackest Night trades, Felon got The Walking Dead vol.1 and Scott Pilgram 1, and Burns got some old sci-fi magazines that featured Star Wars.
I also got a picture of Felon being unimpressed by a Hulk statue:
While driving through Oklahoma last year (looking into it I found out it was Savanna) we happen to catch a glimpse of this sign for what I’m assuming is a flea market:
I have to applaud Bob for his modesty.
