Names: Mike (left), Jimmie (right) "spelled with ie." Spotted: 6th and Brazos, Austin.

You live in Austin? How do you like it? It's kind of overrated. I'm thinking about moving.

Jimmie, what's that a nickname for? Jimmie: That's it. James is my name, but I'm not Jemima or anything. I'm not black.

I can see that. What've you been doing so far? Jimmie: We've been seeing free shows and drinking cheap beer.

What've you seen? Jimmie: I've seen Boris and the Melvins. I'm all about where I can go for free or get cheap beer. I can't wait for the FREE PUBLIC ENEMY concert! points down to where it'll be held.

What's it like being from Austin and having all these people here for the week? Mike: It's too much having all these people here. Jimmie: There's more attractive guys than usual. I can walk around and just be like, hellloooo. Mike: A lot of girls. Jimmie: A lot of girls with big butts and boobs, so I can [makes ass-squeezing motion with her hands] and then say he did it.

What's your tattoo? Jimmie: It's a dancing robot. It's my souvenir from Phoenix, Arizona.

What does a dancing robot have to do with Phoenix? Jimmie: I wanted a dancing robot and I went to Phoenix for two weeks to hang out with a friend and I was like, 'I'm here and i should get a souvenir.'

So I guess you won't ever forget Phoenix. Jimmie: I know, isn't that awesome?

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
