Only the Shadow knows….
I love Houston and I miss it terribly. I’m currently in Austin getting fricking drunk at the STAPLE show and then preparing to meet with legislators on Monday and Tuesday at the Capitol (as part of my day job). Yes, you should be worried. Regardless, I took this photo in Houston… somewhere.
In regards to SXSW: The heck with it! Too many damn patchouli hippie wannabees running around the street with their silly acoustic guitar crap. Get a job you smelly bums. I have no sympathy for the music industry.
“Can you please help me?”, was the southern accent that was heard as I peered from the corner of my paperback to see who was trying to disturb me, while Pendergast was finally escaping from Herkmoor’s highly guard prison. Then she smiled, and I at that instance knew that my trip to Houston was going to be worth while.
Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars probably should have landed here.

The event was filled with food, beer, bands (including a string quartet), a floating cinema courtesy of the Aurora Picture Show, boats & kayaks buzzing along the Bayou, a video of Monarch butterflies projected against the Sabine Bridge, and the length of the newly developed Promenade awash in cobalt blue lights. Families were strolling the promenade, kids were tumbling down hills and small groups of friends and couples were laying out on blankets. It was a beautiful summer evening and a wonderful way to experience one of Houston’s recent developments.
Spanning 23 acres, the $15 million Sabine-to-Bagby Promenade features trails, beautiful landscaping, a pedestrian bridge, public art and a high-tech lighting system. According to a Chronicle article about the Promenade features, “the lighting system features glowing orbs that will be white when the moon is full and, moving east to west, progressively change to blue as the moon goes through its phases. The lights will be all blue when the new moon appears, and the pattern will reverse itself for the remainder of the lunar cycle.”
If you weren’t able to make it to the Blue Bayou event this weekend and haven’t yet seen the new Promenade, you’re in for a treat. It’s beautiful, clean and also great new route for runners and bicyclists. For more information on the Promenade and other upcoming developments along Buffalo Bayou, check out the Buffalo Bayou Partnership website.
No, I’m not in Vegas… but the show inside is probably similar.

You can find me surrounded by tall buildings.
There remains sixty-three shades of green,
Even though theres nineteen years in between.
