It’s been a rough few days. Check out my poor little fountain.
Last Sunday the second F1 race in Austin was held. Nathan B. came over to watch and we went along with little Jaco and Jaimito.
- Bring ear plugs
- Bring a hat
- Bring sunscreen
I thankfully ignored the advice of people who went last year (“wake up at 5 AM so you can make it on time”, “the line to the shuttle on the way out is 2.5 hours long”) which turned out not to apply to this year: everything was smooth and quick.
Now that we got that out of the way, I present you with evidence, starting with a quick video I shot with my phone.
I shot some video in slow-motion too, but for some reason that didn’t turn out too exciting. So it’s not posted.
Running a Marathon is no small feat. I just got a cramp from thinking about it.
It is with utter respect and awe that I congratulate my brother Jacobo and my friend Eduardo a.k.a. Aizik for running the New York City Marathon.
The Sandlers signed up for a two week intensive Bingo Championship in the Caribbean. Here’s us practicing some of our strategies.
We went to ACL this past weekend. People were not excited about it because
- It was broken into two weekends with exactly the same lineup.
- The lineup felt weaker than past years.
But I’m very glad I went. I had a blast. The weather was perfect for it. And most importantly, it’s the first ACL in many that allergies aren’t killing me and/or I’m stoned out of my mind with allergy medication.
Also, the crowds felt lighter (but I heard it was the usual 75,000 souls). Lines for food, bathroom, beer were quick and painless. Getting in and out of the park was a breeze. It was relatively easy to get close to the stages as well. Maybe they’ve been improving the logistics, maybe it was something else, but it really helped enjoy the weekend.
Disclaimer: Lots of photos below. But this year I decided not to carry my excellent MFT camera, instead using my puny little iPhone 5. This means the photos suck.
Also, I assumed that others would bring good cameras, take some decent videos, and post them to YouTube. I was wrong, it turns out my incredibly steady hand is unique among concert-goers. Oh well…
