We’ve achieved peak Austin! Horribly Hot with Weird on course

Mucca Sacra! Nothing could be more Austin Weird than this stupid person on a scooter exposing their skin to third-degree burns in 10 minutes (or stage one skin cancer in 20). One friend thinks they’re from Venice Beach, CA where … Continue reading

Back to my workplace yesterday was pretty good

I’m pretty lucky since I got to volunteer for the gradual plan for the next six weeks but I dread it may be pointless as another strain hits the Northeast a handful of Moontower Comedyfest guests tested positive. I think … Continue reading
