Statesman round-up

I noticed this photo in the Metro section of the Statesman today. It’s a cool shot of a lightning strike and the Thundercloud Subs on Riverside near the Statesman offices during yesterday’s storms.

They’ve also got a feature on the Real World – Austin cast. Apparently, filming wraps up this week. The finished product airs June 21st. I thought the two most interesting bits of information in the article were:

  1. Their favorite bar downtown is Dizzy Rooster!?!?! Why am I not surprised?
  2. Nehemiah, the only african-american cast member is “The least in love with Austin.”. Hmmm, could that have something to do with the recent forums on the quality of life in Austin for African Americans? I wonder.

Finally, I hadn’t noticed this until today, but what the hell is Michael Corcoran doing writing sports columns? I thought he was a music critic?

    Corky’s been doing the sports column for a while. He mentioned in a book I’m reading that he prefers sports to music.

    He’s such a great sports fan that he preferred to watch some event (I honestly can’t remember what it was now) on television, finding that more enjoyable than being present at the real thing, for which many had sought, but been unable, to obtain tickets. What’s with that?
