Sorry- this song just GOT ME. Love it, brought me back to that warm kangaroo pouch of a place I call being young and having no responsibility.

ENJOY.

Cows About Town

If you live in Austin you have seen them. Some have even snuck up behind me and scared the MILK outta me… (corny I know but come on people, I’m talking about cows… its utterly wonderful) either way its all art and I am all about that. A certain photographer has done an excellent job of tracking down all of these sometimes not so obvious cows and capturing them. Johnny Stevens has an EXCELLENT eye as these photos are stunning.
Enjoy the Cows!

Social Media Pros of Austin TX

If you’re like me and you love networking then you understand that contacts can get all mixed up and tangled in the mind grapes. I need a way to keep these contact aligned and fresh, thus I am going to start a new blog series that outlines what each Social Media Pro I meet does and loves. Will it be full of shameless plugs? Maybe. Will it be just like other blogs? I hope not. Will it be the best thing Austin has ever seen? Well… I’ll let you decide 😉
@ryanhandinc
Some of the questions I will be asking:
– What is your favorite way to self promote?
– Describe your work/life balance in the theme of your favorite TV show
– If you could change one thing about Facebook what would it be?
– If you could live anywhere (other than Austin of course) where would you live?
– What are your thoughts on the future of Location Based Marketing?
– How do you stay cool when you are soooo hot?

things like that…

I want to get the best minds around. People like @T4TStephanie who writes for the hilarious blog http://txt4t.com, @spikejones creator of http://askspike.com, @TrishBeach who I met yesterday and well… she just seems awesome, @AshleyCass superstar at Gowalla, and SO MANY MORE…
(PS: if I mentioned you here… be waiting for your interview 😉

Let me know what you think, if you want to hear any other questions. Do you think i should do video or witten?

if I could only get an interview from Leslie 🙂

So why wouldn’t i post… right?

So this is my post:

Dirty.

"Dirty Bills"

If you travel west on 6th street in Austin Texas you may stumble upon a quaint dive bar with a name like no other… Dirty, yes I said “Dirty” but that’s hardly what you will find there. In its attempt to scare away the average bar go-er it attracts a better crowd of industry and friends of industry workers. If you walk in and don’t know anyone you will meet someone. If you walk in and you can’t meet anyone… then get the eff out.

In the back corner by the jukebox you will find a posse of tenured drinkers who control the flow of tunes. Well only when they aren’t listening to the tunes of DJ Mel, Randy, and others. This corner has a stigma of high tippers, heavy drinkers, and hopeful hipsters. Next time you’re there be sure and say hi!

Take a cab. I guarantee they won’t know where you’re talking about. If you don’t love and respect that then don’t even attempt to walk in. Instead head over to Key Bar, The Ranch, Maggie Mae’s or somewhere else that… well, just isn’t as fun…

Dirty Bill’s is there for those who love and care about it. Leave your ugly at the door, walk inside, respect the bartenders, know what you like to drink, tip well, and you will be happy as a kitten wearing mittens.

Love you Dirty,

@ryanhandinc
