A lot of people are moving to Austin, but more are moving to San Antonio, U-Haul says
 Memorial Day Weekend is almost upon us. For many, that means barbecues, boat trips and the unofficial starts of summer. For many, though, it’s the start of moving season. U-Haul reports that “about 45 percent of all moves each year occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.” And a lot of people are moving to Austin...

You can get a free ‘Deadpool’ tattoo this weekend...but there’s a catch
 All right, listen up, folks. For one day and one day only, Pigment Tattoo is partnering with Alamo Drafthouse for a free tattoo event. The catch?

Jason Boland: ‘There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel’
 About three-fourths of the way through a phone interview about his band The Stragglers’ new album, Jason Boland wryly jokes: “We’re just really fortunate guys, and to a bunch of slackers like us, it’s still amazing that we’re doing what we’re doing.” The Stragglers have included a few staff changes...

Ever wondered how many music videos feature Austin? Here’s a running list
 I am not old enough to remember when MTV was exclusively reserved for music. Long before the reality TV explosion, the “M” in “MTV” was the central part of its brand. CMT used to play music videos too, which I watched a lot of. I do remember Fuse’s heyday, though. Remember Fuse? Oh sweet,...

Shaq name-drops Pflugerville on ‘Inside the NBA’
 When you think of Texas cities that get mentioned a lot on national television, there’s the usual suspects that cross your mind: Dallas. Austin. San Antonio. Waco. Shoot, maybe Fort Worth.

Yeah, you could watch an MLB game, but these Little League moments are priceless
 Baseball season is back in full swing for players of all ages, and sometimes Little League is more interesting to watch than the major leagues. Take, for instance, the exploits of two little tyke baseball players that got some attention online this week. One of them was from Texas. In the first video, a Little Leaguer from California had...

Parker Millsap on ‘sad Jesus music’ and allowing himself to have some fun

Seeing Jack Johnson in 2018 means nostalgia, mellow vibes and escape
 Is Jack Johnson still a huge concert draw in 2018? That was the question that was on my mind as I made the rainy drive out to the Austin 360 Amphitheater Wednesday night. A spring storm had delayed the doors opening, but no rain or thunder was going to stop me from seeing the former professional surfer-turned soft rock environmental philanthropist...

The Texarkana police just got pranked with a ‘doughnut trap’
 The “coffee and doughnuts” stereotype is well-trod territory among police officers at this point.  But that didn’t stop a merry little prankster in Texarkana from trying to get a rise out of the Texarkana Police Department.  Someone apparently rigged a doughnut trap at a tree near where some officers like...
