Austin x AUS10

Instead of SXSW - it's Austin X Aus10 and he is giving a photolog of the weekend.

He started off with The Whigs


and  Oberhofer

and The Roots


and Bassnectar

and headliners Goyte

Neil Young

And Jack White.

 Just turn on your local alternative or college radio station and it's like you there.

No close up photos or  VIP section today,  this was party with the people in Zilker  Park.  But that's not to say he didn't have a star moment courtesy of former co-star Shantelle.

OMG!! OMG!! I found this guy from #OTH @AUS10NICHOLS ... Seriously he's my fav! Obsessed! #ACL ;) XO

Who says you can't go home again.  The forecast is for it to be in 85F in Austin tomorrow. It's still time for you to back to you shirtless ways Mr. Nichols.

Wow, guess Austin is going to close the place down. I wonder if he's going to help the Clean-Up crew pick up all the trash on the ground and sort it by Recyclables and Non-Recyclable. lol

Come on, Aust! Strap on the Recycle bag, grab a poker and get to work.

Hard to believe it is the middle of October already. Time just flies.

You know, I don't know how on earth these 2 guys can stand to fly so much. Flying is becoming such a huge ordeal. It's not the buying of tickets or (for them) the boarding of the plane since I'm certain they must fly 1st class when they take a commercial flight.

But it's the darn security lines. At my home Intntl airport, now they wanted your shoes flat on the conveyor, not even in a tub. I had my contact lenses and tiny, unopened bottle of saline in a baggie by itself and they still wanted to run my bag through the scanner again.

At another airport, I had to stand forever in this HUGE line even though I was 1 1/2 hrs ahead of my time. I had time to get on my IPad and shoot off emails, I was in there so long. And when I got towards the front, we found out why. Out of 3 security scanners, they only had 1 open. That's it. Just one. Someone said they heard they didn't have enough employees.

But when I got up there, there were all kinds of employees standing around and then suddenly, they opened the other 2 up. After that, the line really began to move. So they had one security station open for one entire terminal.You can't tell me that all of a sudden, these extra employees showed up for work at the same time and all late. That's nonsense.

And on the way back, on the second leg, I had to ride in this tiny plane with propellers. And we had to walk outside and walk on the tarmac to board it.

I told my seat partner that I felt like it was Gilligan's Island and Wrongway Feldman was going to be at the helm. And he said that a few of the airlines were using these smaller planes for better efficiency.

I tell you what, that plane was so loud because of those propellers that my seat partner and I had to touch heads and raise our voices just to hear each other talk. And of course, he kept talking to me.

But I don't know how these guys deal with so much flying. I wouldn't want to do it too much. It used to be fun & adventurous. Now the airlines really have us at their mercy and you never know what's going to happen on your flight.
