Austin Blogger Awards & Life on the East Side Ep 4: The Doobs

Well, somehow I managed to get nominated in three categories at the Austin Blogger Awards. I’m very touched and appreciate everyone’s support. To know that people beside my parents actually read my blog gives me the incentive to keep writing and the self-esteem boost needed to feed my fragile, child-like ego.

The lovely folks over at the Republic of Austin have put together this first ever award ceremony that will take place at the Austin Eavesdropper-hosted “Austin Bleet-Up” this Friday, December 3rd 7PM at Whole Foods Rooftop. The Bleet Ups are always a great time and an excellent way to meet people of your own kind and no longer feel like a shut-in.

If you’d like to vote. Please vote here. Hipstercrite has been nominated for the “Blog of the Year”, “Blogger of the Year”, and “Best Blog to Find Comments of Discussions” categories. As I promised my friends yesterday, I will make you cookies or canned pickles in return.

Please enjoy my latest episode of “Life on the East Side”. Joy may be a stretch. This episode, titled, “The Doobs“, is a little less East Sidey and a little more quarter-life crisisy. It is about a young man who has discovered that he now likes yacht rock and he’s concerned that he is losing his edge.

    @Tsaritsa- Thank you!!! Pickled beat root? That sounds super delicious! I think I will pickle anything!!!

    @Sailor Legs- Hahahaha. For me, it was as if I woke up one day and the light switch had been flipped. I went from detesting him to absolutely loving him. It was an amazing thing.

    @Birkley- After posting that song on Twitter, I took a listen and really liked it. Good taste!

    @Trina- Thank you!!! Yes, come by! The Bleet Ups are so much fun! One of my favorite things to do in Austin. Heads up, I believe it's a $7 cover, but totally worth it.

    @Christopher- Why, thank you!!! Hope to see you Friday!

    I identify so much with that dude. The robot voice is always funny in xtranormals… but the barrage of song quotes in the voice was xtra hilarious.
