I'm Austin. I'm a Mountaineer aspiring to do something with his life. I'm a DJ for WWVU-FM, and an amateur music reviewer. I don't get it either.

It feels nice to be home for a few days.

I'm From West Virginia and I've Got Something to Say About the Chemical Spill →

It’s fair and even warranted to place the blame of the WV chemical leak on Freedom Industries and their willful neglect of the storage containers. That’s a valid point. When you’re upstream of a major area’s water supply, it would behoove you to check up on your facilities more than once every twenty years.

This, however, is a two-way street. Over the past 150 years, West Virginia has turned into an easy target for industry. What’s not to love? Abundant natural resources, cheap property, and residents to thrive on ignoring the past in the name of “tradition.” We brought this on ourselves. We stood by and let coal companies and chemical plants use our state as they see fit, and we take it as proof that the West Virginian is a strong, resilient person. This culture of ignorance has helped lead to the stereotypes, the rape of our land, and the cycle of poverty that all too many of us have experienced.

All in the name of tradition.

So Umphrey’s McGee was pretty much amazing. Like, seriously a fantastic experience. And they covered “Girlfriend Is Better” in the encore, where I proceeded to lose my shit.
