Personal Bias: Mad Decent Awesome Block Parties rule everything around me!

The Crowd: Dudes and dudettes in typical festival uniform: bare-chested or tank top with jogging shorts for the dudes, high-waisted mom jean cutoffs and bras for the ladies. Fun crowd, not too many altercations or arrests.

Overheard In the Crowd: "This is my first concert or festival experience... ever. And I'm having the time of my life!" -- A friend of a friend who was clearly having the time of her life.

Random Notebook Dump: Last year, I caught the Las Vegas stop of the Mad Decent Block Party at the Encore Beach Club. That day included partying with a bachelorette party of gorgeous, bikini-clad women and drinking champagne. As fun as New Braunfels is/was, it's no Vegas!

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
