Crystal Shines BrightThis shit is getting old and pretentious. DONT HAVE CHILDREN then the world would not be so damn over populated. If you travel at all you would know all the big cities are being overcrowded and all the locals say "dont move here" no matter where you go. This attitude Austin has adopted that you are only cool if you've lived here 10+ years is turning this city into a bunch of cry baby brats. What the hell happen to "welcome to Austin" I miss those people.

Bill Hicks' 1993 BANNED From TV Stand Up Comedy Set
You know who was #SoAustin even if he wasn't technically from here? Bill Hicks. Here's his last performance on Letterman, from 1993 -- which Dave banned from TV for over a decade. Good stuff! 😉

Talk about a #SoAustin way to start your day! 😍

Also, heres a #SoAustin protip: La Flor, a food trailer on 1st Street, is a hidden #TacoMecca. If youve never been, get there ASAP, and make sure to order something on a corn tortilla. Theyre more like corn pancakes. AMAZING barely covers it.

Roy SprayI know the restaurant that is there now has salty crap food and the owners live in an efficiency behind the restaurant. The artist is Daniel Johnston and a nice guy. He did this mural in the early 80's, I have this on cassette and bought it here 30+ years ago when it was Sound Exchange. www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=3&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiIgMPDocLUAhVC_...
