Don't complain about taxes. How else do you expect the state to pay those fat pensions to state workers? :D

Come on...
First off, I don't live in Austin. I live 3.5 hours south on the coast. I used to live there, and my husband still does, but that doesn't mean I get to go there all the time. The drive is hella long and boring, gas is expensive, and sometimes when I'd like to go visit, I'm scheduled to work. I haven't been able to make an Alamo showing since I moved away over 2 years ago because a lot of the time they're scheduled on a weekday, and I don't earn enough vacation time to take time off just to go to Alamo. I have never been able to "get about any poster they release without much trouble." I sit online and waste hours hitting refresh just like everyone else. I was mistaken about my tax payment, probably because I was confused and thinking about what I paid for the Stout set, but what's the big deal? I already admitted I was wrong about that half a page up.

I live in Austin. How do I obtain an on-demand print without bothering with the Mondo website?

You're closer to the store so your internet connection should be quicker.

I too would like to know this. Is there some super-secret Texans-only ordering page that allows us to get all the posters? ;)

This made me laugh, mainly because it reminded me of what one of my friends said in college. He declared that Tim Reynolds was a really good guitar player because he was so small and thus it took less time for the electrical impulses in his brain to reach his fingers. The punchline: that guy's currently working his way through med school.

Haha, to echo what others have said - you guys know that 80%* of the posters Mondo releases are just online, and we Austinites have no better chance to get them?

We do, however, have a chance at the scratch and dent section, and I remember going into the store years ago and seeing a bunch of highly desired prints sitting there for months. That doesn't happen anymore though...


*totally made up statistic, but it would be around there.

Yeah they don't release much in store anymore. I always wanted to go see Mondo but I would need an amazing print to justify me driving 12 hours in one day and they usually only release those online.

The original Alamo is a cheezey club now with $250 bottles of liquor served at your table with set ups. I felt a little dirty going inside.
