Dear Mr. Supercomputer is going to be shutting things down for a couple weeks while we move DMS headquarters from Austin, TX to Fort Collins, CO. During our journey westward, we'll be making stops in Dallas and Topeka and we might just intentionally drive into a ditch if things get too hairy with Girl Supercomputer and Boy Supercomputer in the back seat.
It's probable we'll not be delivering our insight for a couple weeks while we get everything settled, which is a shame because the next couple weeks looks like they'll be shaping up nicely for DMS-nation (hint: see picture on right of the heavens obviously endorsing their candidate).
It'll be tough leaving Austin, the only real home we've ever known. We have strong roots here. It's probably the greatest city in the world when you don't include geography and climate. Things I'll miss about Austin (uh-oh, you know it's a tender moment when we switch to the singular):
The Zilker Park train
Katz's at 2 AM
Magnolia Cafe at either 1 AM or 8:30 AM
Amy's Ice Cream
Kerby Lane's short stack preceded by Kerby Queso
Hole in the Wall
Austin City Limits (the show and the fest)
Peter and the Wolf
The Saxon Pub
Town / Lady Bird Johnson Lake
The Ginger Man
SXSW free day shows
Summer Texas rains
Mayor Will Wynn
Austin Java Co.
The Austin Chronicle
I'm sure there are countless others that I've missed that I won't realize until after we've already vacated the premises.
But we expect Fort Collins to be everything it's cracked up to be. Even still, we'll miss you Austin.
John Prine - "Clay Pigeons"
We'll see you all in a couple weeks.
