Texas Longhorns: Something to Prove

no thumb

These past three weeks have been hard for Longhorn Football as the school had to cope with a back-to-back losses to UCLA and OU. This past weekend though, they came back with something to prove because this has been the worst showing they have had in years. As a Longhorn, it sucks watching a game without having a little number next to our name.

In elementary school, studying meant going to the kitchen table and learning how to spell the words like “responsibility.”  In middle school, studying got a little harder, so we upgraded to a personal desk in our rooms where we started learning how to write a paper.  In high school, we got the opportunity to go to our friends’ houses and study for tests that really didn’t need studying for.  Now, because of movies and TV shows, we all assume the best place to study is in the library.

Hanging with a Movie Star

In Austin, TX, the Alamo Drafthouse, the movie theater that is known for having waiters while you watch a movie, gives moviegoers the opportunity to have a different kind of experience. It can range from their famous sing alongs all the way to their infamous Saturday Brunch Cartoon viewings. But the coolest thing they have to do is screen movies before they are released and bring the stars to these screenings. Their most recent view was The Virginity Hit, where three friends help another friend lose his virginity. The movie isn’t what I am going to talk about though. I am writing about the experience of that night. After the Q&A with the producer and one of the stars Zack Pearlman, me and some friends decide to take some pictures with them. Well, two of our friends get the idea of writing their names and numbers on a piece of paper and give it to Zack to see if he wants to hang out after the movie. We leave the theater not expecting anything.

Every weekend, I get the pleasure of hearing students say “Hey, what bar do you want to hit up tonight.”  The next Monday, I get to hear how they had to pay over six dollars for a warm beer.  Well to partially quote an Apple iPhone commercial “There is an app [to help avoid] that.”  Well in Austin anyway.  The people from Shattered Axis Technologies present the application Bar Buzz for the iPhone.
