Random places I want to visit #1
1. They have two mottos, one official and one not-so-official and both make me very happy.
"Live Music Capital of the World"
"Keep Austin Weird"
2. The Polyphonic Spree come from Austin, and that is reason enough.
3. The The South by Southwest Festival.http://sxsw.com/
4. Amazing crafters like Paloma's Nest (whose super-cute custom bangles, printed with the words "You are a shug" and rather delightfully, "Puck", made a great Christmas present for Sparky's sister last year).
5. Dazed and Confused was filmed there, and for some reason, I love that movie.
