1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    What the fuck has happened to Austin since I left?

    Those photo's pretty much sum it up. I've been here for 19 years and while I have enjoyed both SXSW and Austin plenty, I now feel like the old guy who's just yells 'get off my yard'.

    Hipsters are usually the ones who support these so-called "singers" who sound as if they're using the microphone to brush their teeth.

    I could have taken these same pictures at a Wal-Mart near any college anywhere.

    For real.



    This is a weird generalization to make. Do you go to many modern art exhibitions at all? Not even going to comment on the next clause, or speculate on the role the word "postmodern" plays in that sentence.

    But whatever though.


    dude, plz stop using big words. you're just confusing his point

    good point, I hate this hipster anti-fashion bullshit. This is regressive indeed, thank you for articulating this better as I didn't have enough knowledge to give specific details about music movements influences.

    This kind of shit also plagues art now...Art is a bit embarassing now, and I blame it on how apathetic and nihilistic postmodern society has become.


    lol. my opinion of you just dropped considerably. you sound like you have no idea what you're talking about and just want to sound insightful

    Never understood the fixie hate. Every single multi-gear bike I have owned has sucked terribly and been a nuisance, my next bike for sure will be fixed gear.

    And what's wrong with breakfast tacos and coffee?

    it blew my mind when I saw a guy taking a hill in san francisco on a fixed gear. I can see the appeal in a flat-ass city like NYC, but even Vancouver has too many hills. I like my gears. Anyways, if you want reliability, why not just get a single speed with a freewheel. The brakeless bullshit gets me, too. First time I had a fixie rider skid sideways in front of my car I just about pulled onto the sidewalk.

    I saw that when I was there in October. That's when I knew it was not the town I grew up in full of college professors, hippies, and govt workers.

    Best line yet.


    I was at SXSW. I saw some rare SF types in the mix. APC NS, Aldens, etc. Panerai, IWC, Omega too. Get a big enough crowd and you are bound to. I wonder if any were locals.

    I disagree. The execution and composition of the images is pretty well done.

    "modern" art spans a whole lot of art. To be more specific I meant American art from 70s-now. I guess contemporary would be the right word. Maybe I'm using the wrong words, but I meant to say that nihilisms influence on art has moved it in a direction that has make it seem emptier to me at conveying much. It isn't as special to me as older art, maybe cuz I live in these times. I've actually taken more an interest in photography than anything else. Also, I didn't even know you existed big pun so I guess you're pretty insignificant so meh.
