      From afar, admittedly, the goodness of Austin doesn’t quite make up for the rest of TX which seems to me, in the main, hard to come to love.

      But Austin does have some serious goodness.

        I hate to have to admit it, but I could have an affair with Texas.  I mean, I know she’s all wrong for me, with the cowboy boots, and too much makeup, and the capital punishment and all.  She’d never love me. She’d probably wreck my life.  But still…..Report

        I like Austin just fine. I can get good bbq within a mile of my work in pretty much every direction, there’s a lot of green space for a city its size, and the Bible thumping is minimal given where the city is located, but it’s not as great as it likes to pretend. The people are distinctly impolite for a city this far south, the great music scene is really only legend at this point (sure, there are a lot of musicians, but for the most part the quality musicians realized that in order to make a living at this stuff, you have to move to Nashville, L.A., New York, or New Orleans, and so they did), the city’s racism has become more and more palpable over the years, and the homeless population is growing (conservative estimates put it at 2300 or so, but more accurate surveys put it at closer to 5 digits) and underserved despite the fact that all of the west Austin liberal well-to-do’s run a charity 5k 3 times a week. Aside from the BBQ and a few South American restaurants, the food kinda sucks, too. Plus, as the city has become more wealthy, its political makeup has changed. It’s no longer any more liberal, and perhaps less so, than Houston proper or San Antonio. Really, San Antonio is the new Austin, but with a shittier bus system and no major university.Report

          I should note that Austin’s live music scene does return to real, from legendary, status 3 times a year: SxSW, ACL music festival, and the one I just spent the weekend attending, Fun Fun Fun Fest. This reminds me, if you have a moment, everyone who reads this should look for Soul Kahn’s battles on YouTube.Report

    It’s about 15km north of Amsterdam, which I thought of using. But why not use the the dreary suburb where I live instead of the romantic capital a 20min train-ride away?

    And to answer the previous census question, I got here fairly recently via Google Reader’s Recommended Sources, liked it and stayed (as a lurker until now because I do not have anything interesting to say).Report

    It seems that a number of people here live in places that I used to. A shame to learn that too late.
