Bishop Allen and Erin McKeown

Tuesday, at the Bowery Ballroom. I caught Bishop Allen down at the Bowery Ballroom with Erin McKeown. Bishop Allen was really good, and I liked Erin McKeown as well. But everyone should catch Bishop Allen. They rock. I even got my T-shirt signed by Bonnie and Christian. Yay!

Bishop Allen at the Tank Opening

I went down to the Tank on 42nd street, and saw Bishop Allen in concert. Bishop Allen is really great - Ron sent me a link from their NPR interview, and I've been listening to the album ever since it arrived...

Young Alive in Love

1/14/2003. There used to be a group called UsagiPop, a long time ago. I really liked their stuff. Now, there is a group called Young Alive in Love that is getting started, with the same front-man (I think.) Anyway, I'm hopeful.

Hanging around Austin

Avenue Cafe in Austin 9/1/2002 - Alana and Thon got up and ran at 8:00am. I didn't go; I sprained my ankle playing basketball last week. At about noon we went out to get brunch at Las Manitas Avenue Cafe, my sister's favorite place downtown. It's a mexican place. I got a Plato de Churrizo, which is basically refreid beans, and churrizo with egg. Put all that stuff in a tortilla, and it is some pretty good eating. Of course, it didn't feel right having that for breakfast, but still...
Barton Springs Barton Springs In the afternoon, we went to Barton Springs. It's a part of the Austin city parks, basically a few blocks from downtown Austin. It's a natural spring that flows up from limestone which Austin built a nice little park around. The water is always a chilly 68 degrees, so it's pretty cool to go out there on a hot day and relax on the grass, popping in and out of the water. Of course, it was pretty crowded since a lot of Austin seemed to have had the same idea that we did...

For dinner, we went to Mangia, which has the best pizza in Austin, according to my sister. They make a Chicago style deep dish pizza there. The owner is a die-hard runner, and wanted to have a "healthy" pizza, so he created a deep dish spinach double stuffed pizza on whole wheat bread. That is what Alana and Thon ordered, while Dad and I got a double stuffed mushroom, smoked bacon and pineapple pizza on a white crust. It was actually very good. Afterwards, we headed home, and mom and dad took the Allante back to Dallas. Thon, Alana and I headed out to a nearby park with a view of "bat bridge." This is a bridge that has tens of thousands of bats living under it, and at sunset, the bats come out and fly around. We took a seat on a dock near the UT-owned boat house, and settled down to watch. Unfortunately, bat season is just about coming to an end - the bats are migratory and head to Mexico for the winter, and there were not too many out for us to see. On the way back, we stopped at Amy's Ice Cream again, and I got another chocolate (dark chocolate this time) with strawberries and hot fudge, "sundae style" (so the strawberries weren't pounded in to the ice cream.) That improved it, but still it wasn't up to Halo Pub standards.

At home, we watched a few episodes of the Simpsons from the newly acquired season 2 DVD that Thon picked up, and then played a game of scrabble to the Director's cut of Aliens (which Alana has amazingly, never seen before.) I got completely trounced by both Thon and Alana, and we finished off the movie. I'll have to play more scrabble...

Amy's Ice Cream in Austin

Drove down to Austin today. It took about 4 and a half hours - going the speed limit the whole way. Which is how I usually drive. Anyway, came out here to visit my sister and her boyfriend. They took us to a really nice dinner. The food wasn't so amazing - standard tourist spot type fare - but the view was just great. The place was called "Oasis", and it was up on the top of a hill overlooking Lake Travis. We got a great view of the sunset. Highly recommended.
After dinner we met up with dad, and went down to Amy's ice cream. It was really good, but not as good as Halo Pub.

Flew to Dallas

I made it to Dallas, and celebrated my mom's birthday. Now I'm camped out at the Alma Mater, Southern Methodist University trying to catch up on email and get some work done. I located the interview NPR did with Puffy AmiYumi (thanks Adam!)
