Me and the wife, we’re off to our future home of Austin, Texas to look for apartments. We’ll be there until next Monday. If y’all are from the area and y’all want to grab a drink, shoot me an e-mail…I’ll be checkin’ it. If you have any suggestions for stuff to do, apartments to rent, or possible jobs for me, send those too. We’ll take whatever we can get!
By the way, the New Yorker has two Austin-related articles this week. One is about why the archives of so many writers end up at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, the literary archive of the University of Texas. (On my list of places to visit.) The other is Sasha Frere-Jones reviewing the new album by Spoon, one of my favorite bands in the world, who just happen to be Austin-based.
Wish us luck!
