“Blogger Intro: Chris Apollo”

2009 April 21


In the mid-90′s when I was in high school, we used to drive down to Austin to go to raves in crazy places like the tunnels under MOPAC or an old factory on the East Side.  Coming from Dallas, Austin had a magical energy.  I didn’t completely realize just how awesome this city was until I moved here in 1995 for school. Even after leaving her for larger cities-Berlin, New York, San Francisco-Austin has always stuck in my head.  Guess that’s why I’ve always come back.

As editor-in-chief, you could say I’m the mad scientist behind the Republic of Austin.  I’m the man behind the curtain, turning all the knobs and pressing all the buttons.   Does that mean I’m the Wizard of OZ-tin? Maybe, but you don’t have to travel down the yellow brick road to find me.  When you see me out or on your favorite social network, stop and say, “Sup?”
