We just had Sam stay in our "SoulPad" which looks like what would happen if a tipi married a yurt and had a baby. It's pretty cool. She loved staying in it and took part in one of our outdoor bbqs and sing alongs at AustinSpring out in Cedar Creek. We also just got a "tiny home" shown in these pix which will be on Airbnb soon.

"First Thursday" is a monthly event in the SoCo section of Austin (South Congress Avenue).  SoCo is a trendy mix of antique stores, top flight restaurants, food trailers, music joints (Continental Cub) and boutique hotels spawned by my former employer, the San Jose Hotel.  Drink and Click sometimes meets at Guerro's, shown in these pictures and famous for its taco bar and great Tex Mex food.

The Earth Native Wilderness School 25-acre wooded campus sits between the towns of Cedar Creek and Bastrop, TX. It is just a short twenty minute drive from Austin and is the home of a ton of incredible native plants and wildlife. The land sits on the banks of Cedar Creek, which is one of the rare year round spring fed creeks in Central Texas. From the native pecan bottom area (which includes some huge old growth pecan trees) to the rolling hills covered in White Oak, Cedar Elm, and Mesquite, opportunities for exploration and adventure are never more than a step away.

Wildlife on the land is abundant and includes, white-tailed deer, turkeys, armadillos, bobcats, racoons, grey-foxes, coyotes, and eastern cottontails. Numerous bird species are also incredibly abundant and include, red-shouldered hawks, several resident barred owls, pileated woodpeckers, and numerous other species. We are also lucky to have a very diverse number of native edible and medical plants including, turk’s cap, chili pequin, prickly pear, pecan, mesquite, wood sorrel, sugarberry, dewberry, cucumber plant, toothache tree, wafer ash, pokeweed and more.

They have many cool teaching and camping locations on the land including 4 outdoor fire pits. Other facilities on campus include indoor bathrooms with attached showers, an open-air outdoor classroom, a school office, and a 16-foot Earth Bag roundhouse that is currently under construction.

Post film showing coments by Louis Black (of the Austin Chronicle and SXSW)

Under the guidance of Louis Black, Jonathan Demme Presents: Made in Texas is a series of six short films from Austin’s early indie scene. These restored films were presented together for the first time in Austin since Jonathan Demme introduced them at the Collective for Living Cinema in October 1981. Made in Texas premiered at SXSW Film 2015.

This collection of rarely seen indie films reveals the DNA of a regional film culture that started in Austin but has become worldwide. The films present a way of thinking about film and making movies that broke barriers, celebrated the improbable, and launched today’s independent film scene.

The streetwise, punk, DIY ethos percolating in the 1980s culminated in a synergistic explosion of music and film, the repercussions of which are still being felt. It was in this unique atmosphere that the language of independent, maverick filmmaking took shape. This fertile cinematic soil bred Richard Linklater, Robert Rodriguez, and a dozen other directors, as well as the Austin Film Society and SXSW Film.

Many others involved in the scene have become international successes, industry leaders who have founded festivals and institutes, and distinguished writers and scholars who teach in the country’s most prestigious film programs.

Gervais said that he had made jokes about Mel in the past, and was now in the awkward position of introducing him. “I blame NBC for this terrible situation,” he said, adding, “Mel blames… well, we know who Mel blames,” a reference to Gibson’s anti-Semitic behavior in 2006.

New "Story"!  Ugly Sweater Christmas party at the Urban Co-Lab in East Austin.  Funny story. back in the 80s when I first landed in Austin, the first business some friends had was at the same intersection across the street, a soy dairy at 12th and Chicon.  That was way, way before this area was "cool".

Google makes these animations out of still photos. So when you put your camera in "burst" mode, they have a much larger sample and, as a result, the video is much more fluid and flowing. Like in these photos from last night's +Drink and Click™ Austin, Texas Olympic Camera Event at Fado's Irish Pub in Austin's red hot Fourth Street District.

We had two really great models at the event. I don't have a name yet for this model but will post it here when I get it. So bookmark this post, share it, and come back to it for a refresh with the model's name and more photos from the event.

A record 300 authors are coming to the 2015 Texas Book Festival, Oct. 17 and 18, the largest number in the 20-year history!

Nationally renowned authors include Margaret Atwood, Taye Diggs, Nick Flynn, Linda Gray, Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket), Gary Hart, Luis Alberto Urrea, Margo Jefferson, Attica Locke, Marie Lu, Chuck Palahniuk, Tavi Gevinson, and Adrian Tomine.

Other headlining authors include Sandra Cisneros, Steve Inskeep, Azar Nafisi, Leonard Pitts, Jr., Mary Helen Specht, Jonathan Lethem, Lauren Groff, John Sununu, Scott Simon, and Robert Christgau.

Celebrating the Festival’s 20th anniversary and her third year as Festival literary director, Steph Opitz says it’s all been “an incredibly gratifying experience.”

“Over the years we’ve had fabulous big name-authors and we’ve had ‘trust-us-this-person/book-is going-to-be-huge’ overnight sensations. This year it’s going to be all that and some,” Opitz says. “If I wasn’t working this thing, I’d be sprinting from session to session trying to get at least a taste of all the magic happening in our Capitol that weekend.”

Standout themes this year include several books about music, poetry, graphic novels including several by women authors, and a strong showing of children’s and young adult authors.

More than 40,000 people are expected to attend the 20th Anniversary Texas Book Festival Oct. 17 and 18. The weekend kicks off with the First Edition Literary Gala, featuring Festival authors Margaret Atwood, Taye Diggs, and Scott Simon. The Gala is held at the Four Seasons, and only a few tickets are remaining. An after-party will also be held at the Four Seasons, to give more people the opportunity to mingle with authors and be part of the Gala festivities. Tickets to the after-party are $75 and are available for purchase here.

One of the nation’s premier literary events and longest-running book festivals in the country, the Festival continues to be free and open to the public thanks to sponsors and volunteers. In addition to the record number of authors, the Festival brings 40,000 attendees, live music, kids’ activities, food trucks, book signings and sales, and 100 exhibitors all in and around the State Capitol over two full days.

The iphone of tiny houses is a collaborative manufacturing effort with Jeff and +Elon Musk of Tesla and SpaceX fame. It should be really big and it will be rolling out in Austin over the next few weeks. I'll keep you posted. Jeff is also planning a visit to our community in Cedar Creek and I want to look in to the feasibility of placing some of these revolutionary new tiny houses at AustinSpring.

Professor Dumpster at Urban Co-Lab during Startup Week Austin 2015. According to the Washington Post "Until he vacated it last month, Jeff Wilson, PhD — an associate professor of biological sciences at Huston-Tillotson University in Austin — spent an entire year living in a converted trash receptacle on the historically black college campus.

On its face, turning the 33-square-foot space into a livable home — complete with an AC unit, a weather station, a mailbox, and a false-floor basement to store cooking equipment and clothes — was a bold exercise in sustainability that demonstrated a person’s ability to comfortably exist in a space 1 percent the size of the average American household."

The Bastrop Christian Outreach Center is HUGE.  Really HUGE.  No joking.  It's the size of an airplane hangar.  A giant cavernous tribute to the Lord.  Dana Thornton goes to church there.  I saw her daughter Bethany but I couldn't find her.  They have a lively pastor and an animated congregation.  They have a two giant screen multimedia presentation going on mostly showing folks in the congregation and what they're up to.  Good idea!  It showcases their more interesting members.  I give this church a very high rating for energy and enthusiasm.

When someone pluses something I post on Google+ I take the time to look at their timeline and, if I like what I see, I give them plusses too.  I usually don't repost others stuff though, I try and post only original photos that I take myself and write about things I believe in.  And that's a lot more work than just reposting cool stuff.  I have nothing against folks who curate great content and I plus a lot of their stuff.  I just sometimes feel there's not enough "plus reciprocity" around here.  How do you feel?

So.  Bottom Line.  If you plus this or anything else I post here I will look at your timeline and, if I find cool stuff, I will reciprocate.  OK?

I wonder if I ran water to my neighbors if my water meter would spin backwards? 1,393,450 gallons of water used since 1980 when I first put in my water system. 92,900 gallons per year usage for an average of 7,740 gallons per month. The average American family of four uses 400 gallons of water per day. On average, approximately 70 percent of that water is used indoors, with the bathroom being the largest consumer (a toilet alone can use 27 percent!).  So my 7,740 gallons per month compares favorably with the average American's 12,000 gallons per month.  I also have a pretty good sized swimming pool.  All this assumes there is no decimal point before that last zero on the meter!

+Joel Horwath sure has a great pool and his house interweaves with it perfectly, Joel went through an amazing saga to get this house, but his odyssey to get this place will give him stories to tell for years to come.

The pool pump room was daunting with the myriads of filters. This is a sprawling, incredible pool with an LED lighting system at night to die for. I've never seen a more elaborate pool.

It was attended by a lot of folks from +Drink and Click™ Austin, Texas and there were 2 or 3 models for some underwater photography, I think Frank was from the awesome beer outfit. It was the best Drink And Click ever! My Donald Donald J. Trump impersonation was really, really great. (?) And we got to bust up a Trump pinata filled with candy!

More easy as cake housing for AustinSpring in Cedar Creek, TX, our "el cosmico clone" for long term rentals and STRs.  This couples review cracks me up!  I saw this today at the Lowe's in Bastrop and it blew me away.  So well built! So versatile with a choice of open sides, screen sides or closed sides.  And only $498.  We're going to start renting these with water, internet, and septic hookups for $210 a month.  You would be half an hour from Sixth and Congress in a very friendly community if you rented this.

AMAZING Purchase!

So I didn't take the time to read the past reviews so if I am being repetitive, deal with it. To start off, this thing is stupid simple to build…period. Grab a buddy, an 8 ft ladder, a 12 pack, a shorter ladder or step-stool and a drill with a 10mm socket (very important) .

Although time consuming (about 3 hours), this thing went together like peaches and cream! I looked at this thing on display at my local Lowe's store and imagined what a nightmare it would be to attach the canopy and not so…it was like "butter".

My only issue was with hanging the "mosquito" curtains and the solid curtains. The instructions seemed to "evaporate" at this point. Once you get the frame constructed and the canopies installed (again, too easy), you now get to "hang" the enclosures. From this point, if you don't drink, find someone who does to help you or your will start drinking. If you've been know to consume several alcoholic beverages in the past, go get more at this point 'cause you're gonna run out and take a torch to your new gazebo.

So here's the secret to hanging the enclosures. First off, the instructions, again, kinda fall off at this point. It doesn't explain whether to install the solid curtain or the mesh curtain on the inside or outside. Additionally, it does not explain whether or not these curtains are to be installed in front of or behind the four columns…so here's the deal. We installed the netting enclosure on the inside rail and the solid fabric on the outside rail. Both enclosures were installed INSIDE the four columns (as opposed to the outside). Here's where it get's ugly and most people start drinking…trying to place the little brass holes on the enclosures over the little stupid hooks provided.

At this point, I would recommend locking any firearms in your home in the trunk of your vehicle and giving the keys to a neighbor. It's that brutal. Here's the trick. For the outside "J" hooks, face them outside. For the inside "J" hooks, face them inside. Here's the installation trick ( You will laugh at this if you buy this and have read this review), you must place the "J" hook exactly at eye level, turn the "J" hook in the direction you wish it to be, grab the enclosure with your thumbs and forefingers just next to the brass eyelet and very, very quietly try to sneak the brass enclosure over the top of the brass eyelet. Should you make a sound or attempt to "force" the eyelet over the "J" hook, it will automatically rotate in front of your eyes!

Cheers!

Pros 
High quality, easy build

Then WeWork, the New York-based mega operator, entered the market in February with 30,000 square feet at the corner of Sixth Street and Congress Avenue. The reception has been nothing short of stunning. WeWork has already leased two additional floors at One American Center, according to leasing broker Travis Dunaway of Endeavor Real Estate Group.

Another New York co-working operator, TechSpace Holding Co. recently announced it leased 32,000 square feet on two floors at 98 San Jacinto Blvd., and Galvanize, a Denver-based coding school and co-working provider, leased 25,000 square feet at the North Shore apartment community under construction at 110 San Antonio St.
Morales and colleagues John Gump and Nate Stricklen said there room for plenty more co-working operators — though the WeWork expansion will bring relief.

"WeWork is really about economies of scale," Gump said. "It's not just for a two-person company. They are actually cater to large companies and they can block off 200 seats.

Meeting with Michael Ray the pool builder guy at Haley Dais in Cedar Creek, TX on Tuesday, September 15th. We're going through a long vetting process with Michael. My wife adamantly opposes him. I like the guy. He gets mixed reviews but can explain them. Should we let him build a container home and pool? What would the likely outcome be. Watch the video!

Matt is standing by in awe on the day he volunteered to clean the pool. He didn't see it coming. I gave him no warning. He got the total run down on how to clean cartridge filters.

Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!  Krugman shakes the core of Republican beliefs.  Trump is standing up to the rich and wealthy.  The man of the people lives in a gilded, gold plated penthouse.  

Trumps opponents must be weeping when they read Krugman's words: "Bush has chosen to attack Mr. Trump as a false conservative, a proposition that is supposedly demonstrated by his deviations from current Republican economic orthodoxy: his willingness to raise taxes on the rich, his positive words about universal health care. And that tells you a lot about the dire state of the G.O.P. For the issues the Bush campaign is using to attack its unexpected nemesis are precisely the issues on which Mr. Trump happens to be right, and the Republican establishment has been proved utterly wrong." 

Jeb Bush’s attacks on the G.O.P. front-runner are on issues where the Republican voting base and the party’s rich donors diverge.

Four years ago today Bastrop County, Texas where I own several homes was the scene of one of the worst fires in Texas history. Folks pitched in with supplies to help each other out at the newly built Convention Center. When you drove over the hill heading East to Bastrop, the fire was spread across the entire Eastern horizon, one of the most frightening scenes I've ever witnessed. It didn't get my homes. I was one of the lucky ones. And to this day, some folks are still rebuilding.

Austin we love you but we can't afford you!  "So welcome to your new home. But just keep in mind that unless you are:

Independently wealthy
About to inherit a fortune
A drug dealer
An underground dealer of skinny jeans and vintage cowboy boots (you’ll make a mint, just be sure to open an Etsy store); or
Donald Trump (God, please don’t let him move here. I mean, sweet Jesus, we already have Perry and Cruz and Abbott, haven’t you punished us enough?)

"You won’t be able to afford a house. Or an apartment, or a condo, renting or owning. That is, not anywhere within an approximate 122 mile radius of the actual city of Austin. I’m just warning you, so if you end up in a sleeping bag next to some dumpster you will be prepared. I’m pretty sure that a shed in someone’s backyard with a tree for a toilet rents for around $1,800 per month these days."

I'm 70. I think the key to anti-aging is eating healthy food with supplements and daily exercise.  Any fitness device helps because it gives you relativity on your daily activity.  I know it's not the ultimate, but I use the Nike Fuelband and the Nike Plus Running App on my Samsung watch.  I have a trainer who's one of the best in Austin, Texas +Meryl Carey and she tries to keep me in shape.  If I don't hit 2,000 Nike fuel points in a day, then it may have been too sedentary a day.  I just joined this community and am looking forward to learning more about all this anti-aging stuff.

We went boating with +Bob Nagy and his wife, Karen Holcomb. Surrounded by the Ouachita National Forest, Lake Ouachita is known for its scenic natural beauty and the clear water. Named one of the cleanest lakes in America, 40,000-acre Lake Ouachita is a water sports mecca for swimming, skiing, scuba diving, boating, and fishing. Angling for bream, crappie, catfish, stripers, and largemouth bass can be enjoyed in open waters or quiet coves along the lake's 975 miles of shoreline.

We explored some coves and islands and went back to dock on a beautiful starry night.

"Several years ago we asked to interview an attractive reporter who had just moved to Austin. The news director of that station wrote us back a polite letter declining our invitation. He explained that they do not hire reporters, anchors, weather personalities etc. based off looks but only Journalistic Integrity. Over the years we have noticed this to be absolutely true!

Turn on your television at 5, 6 or 10 and take in all the long legged, blonde haired journalistic integrity. We are not saying television news is a completely superficial industry (from sweeps sensationalism, to the faux puke voices and even the awkward small talk) we are just saying journalistic integrity is far from a priority.

Here at the Dudley and Bob with Matt Show we want to revert back to the old days and once again make journalistic integrity important. We've put together a list of the most honorable journalists in Austin (nominated by you) and decided to pair them up, head to head, in another April Madness bracket."

Ted Cruz is finally talking some sense.  Damn straight, let's get that White House out of Washington DC and down here in Texas where it belongs.  We could set it down right next to our State Capital and Governors Mansion in the Entertainment District.
