Super Bowl Party
posted by Evalyn BLucas on September 5th, 2020 6:08 AM
Super Bowl Party is amazing and we love to be a part of it so that we can learn more about it. Also from the assignment writers I learn about these ideas and it helps a lot to us. Nice to see this post about Aaron's 3rd annual Super Bowl Party.

Aaron's thoughts on the bailout
posted by jimmy finch on July 28th, 2017 5:01 AM
Nothing here has been mentioned about bail bonds then why you have used bail out as a title. Others have also replied to it i am not really getting the point over here..
Aaron's thoughts on the bailout
posted by habla espanola on November 28th, 2016 12:45 AM
The notion of government bailing out private industry by good Bail Bond is not new. In the 1970s, when Chrysler Corporation was about to go belly up, our government put up the money to get them over the hump, and, under the highly professional leadership of Lee Iacocca, they got back on their feet.And branches of government bailing out other branches of government is hardly a new concept either

2013 Super Bowl Party
posted by aaron on January 27th, 2013 8:45 AM
The 2013 Super Bowl, well, sounds super! In honor of the Harbowl of this year's teams of SF and Baltimore or maybe in honor of the fun and funny commercials they do every year, we'll be hosting a Super Bowl party in GC1 (garden court between Scales and Camacho). Once again, I'll make a bunch of hot dogs and you can bring your beverages and a chair(or whatever else you want) and watch the Super bowl outside on the HD projection with a bunch of family friendly neighbors. My early weather center is putting the Super Bowl at 71 degrees and sunny. The Super Bowl is Sunday Feb 3rd at 5pm-ish Aaron

Attention Fantasy Football Players
posted by aaron on August 25th, 2011 7:56 AM
As part of my grand plan to remove myself from my mundane boring redundant day job as an employee in sector 7G, I have started a side business as a fantasy sports operator. That being said, we are in the thick of getting ready for football season and I would like to send out my personal invitation for all Muellerians who play fantasy football to sign up and play for thousands of dollars and a possible trip to Vegas. The grand prize of our football open championship is $10,000 plus a trip to Vegas for week 16, and we have a survivor style pool with $5,000 in total prizes. Entry signup, rules, fees and forums are at Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. Aaron
Fixing broken sprinkler heads

Please vote for Spider Yoda! (and Toby)
posted by aaron on August 18th, 2011 11:00 PM
I don't ask much from this neighborhood. All I want is a parade to roller skate in with a half head of hair, neighbors to drink neighborhood brewed beer with and people to watch stuff on a $20 PVC pipe home made movie screen. However, voting for spider Yoda is extremely important to me, which needs to be extremely important to you. This is a Mueller kid trying to win time to hang out with an author of his favorite book, who took a picture in front of a Mueller icon and if Mueller folks can't help rock this poll, then its a sad kind of a world I live in. Vote early, often and did I say often? There will be loads of free good karma as your reward.Hugs,Aaron

Inflatable Screen For Mueller
posted by dreuxl on April 8th, 2011 10:45 PM
Hey I'm supposedly a block captain, but I'm crap at going to the MNA meetings. If a significant group of people also think it is a good idea, I will go to a meeting to propose it to the MNA. Since Aaron Wine in GC1 has been doing Movie Night during the warmer months and also Superbowl parties and he has done an excellent job. But I was wondering if the MNA would want to purchase one of the two screen options below that could be checked out by MNA members for Movie nights or other events. It costs around $200 for the screen. It looks like the Camp Chef version is cheaper, more durable, and has better Amazon reviews but is smaller. http://www.google.com/#q=Camp+Chef+120-Inch+Portable+Outdoor+Movie+Theater+Big+Screen&hl=en&safe=off&prmd=ivns&source=univ&tbm=shop&tbo=u&sa=X&ei=5tOfTZSgJISQ0QGLjZmQBQ&ved=0CFMQrQQ&biw=1275&bih=607&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=2c1304d622775efd http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=inflatable+movie+screen&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=17999411456661286988&sa=X&ei=es2fTanBG86y0QGatJCFBQ&ved=0CEAQ8gIwAA#
Support your local fantasy sports game operator
posted by aaron on March 13th, 2011 11:18 PM
Hi All, A lot of you know me from either the guy who throws awesome screening events via projector in the GC1, the guy who sometimes rollerskates in old school quads in shorts that might be considered a bit "tight" or the guy who writes hilarious blog posts but has been too busy to do one in a while. Yes, I am your neighbor Aaron and one of the many reasons I've been shirking my blog writing duty is because I started a fantasy sports company, got acquired and have taken a lead position at the new start up. And that's where you come in. I figure, us Muellerians like to support our neighbors and even though you may hate sports and/or really love them, you'll want to at least support my never-ending quest to have more money to buy useless funny stuff for fun super cool Mueller events. So you might be telling yourself... What's the catch? Where can I find good times online? With professional football in limbo, my company had decided to diversify the risk and field a complete lineup of fantasy sports. This week we have introduced the greatest idea ever in fantasy college basketball games. For an entry fee of only $25, you can sign up for a team, pick players on teams in several groups of players and then sit back and watch the March Madness in a realm you have never seen before. It's level 15 on the Gronkowski Excitement Meter. The beautiful thing is that if you are knowledgeable or just plain lucky, you could cash in one of ten places and receive your share of over $2,900 in cash prizes. So visit today and help your local favorite fantasy sports game operator. Tell your friends, your family, people you might know or your favorite invisible friend. Sincerely, Aaron

Aaron, what's the point of having a man cave if you have no pinball machine in it?
Pinball machine - $2500
posted by aaron on February 19th, 2011 11:06 AM
I am selling the last thing I bought from my bachelor's days. This machine is clean and shopped and has been home use only for the past 10 years. It has the blinders and the only flaws are as listed: 1) One of the plane propeller plastics is missing a blade (Cosmetic) 2) The auto shoot mechanism has a hitch were it works half the time. (does not affect game play) 3) The coin mech only accepts Francs. (You can set it up on free play) There were only 3500 of these made in 1994 and not many of these are left, especially with the blinders. I put a price break in this ad because I figure if I sell it in neighborhood, I might be able to come over and relive my bachelor glory days in full pinball wizard mode. Text me at 947-9111 for a free game as a "kick the tires" kind of a thing. Aaron

11/16/10 message from "West 6th Street Workgroup" regarding their sound ordinance activities
posted by Mark Holzbach on November 16th, 2010 10:14 AM
I would like to thank everyone who was able to attend the October 29th stakeholders meeting. I am sending this email to provide updates and clear up some misconceptions and also inform about the steps forward. I do not have everyone’s email address so please feel free to forward to any interested party. 1. TBNA has formed a permanent Sound Ordinance Committee. The elected chair and vice-chair of the committee are Jason Carrier (Molotov and The Dogwood) and Sean Fric (J Blacks) respectively. 2. This committee along with Jamie Lagarde (President of DANA), Al Stowell (OANA and DANA) and Aaron Rochlen (Austin City Lofts) has formed a working group in order to share information and work toward BOTH short and long term solutions for the West 6th St area. This workgroup will meet monthly and will monitor progress and relay questions, comments and concerns from the neighborhood to the businesses and vice versa. While large, public meetings are an important first step, in order to accomplish a long-term solution for the neighborhood, we felt more can be accomplished with a smaller working group of elected representatives of the different stakeholders. 3. We welcome everyone’s input, however, we ask that you express your concerns through one of the members of the workgroup. I will provide everyone’s name and email address. 4. We hope to have a working plan going forward after this Tuesday’s (November 16th) meeting with additional measures to monitor and abate noise levels in the neighborhood. We will have more specific details about the plan after the meeting and will send regular updates to keep everyone informed. 5. The previously planned December 1st meeting will now be a smaller group comprised of the aforementioned workgroup, APD, city council offices, mayor’s office and the city’s music director and sound engineer. Again, we welcome any additional input and ask that you contact Jamie, Al or Aaron with any questions or concerns you would like addressed.

It’s a refreshing post about water! It seems that everything nowadays involves water in some sort. After all we are over , but that having water doesn’t make you smart or else would be programmers and not something to eat. There is something amazing about taking one part of breathable oxygen and two parts of crisis that creates the molecule affectionately known as water. I could probably write a hundred page thesis on water and still not cover all the awesomeness it does. I will relate to one very cool fact about water. The densest water gets is precisely at Celsius. You may be quick to dismiss that fact as just merely a minor feature of water, but it is, in fact, one of the most important things because without water being slightly heavier as a liquid at 4 degrees Celsius, humans as we know them (I am a cyborg! (okay, maybe not(Awesome! My first parenthesis comment inside another parenthesis for this blog! There’s a tear in the blog/space fabric!(Oh no! I did it again!)))) would not exist. You see, if water froze on the top and if the ice was denser than the liquid, the ice would sink to the bottom of the glass, lake or ocean. The arctic circle would not exist and a about the Titanic would not have been made(I really didn't need a two hour lover story to see a boat go down), but not only that, the water above the solid ice would then freeze and sink onto the other solid blocks of ice. Also the ice at the bottom of the water would melt extremely slow when the surface warmed. Eventually you would have a solid block of ice in the poles and the great great great great,…..nth degree of great grand lungfish would freeze and never make it to walk the earth (Unless you are a , then you would not believe some scientific studies, like all of them). A simple .1 in kg/m3 will get you life as we know it. And Mueller as we know it….. First off, I must apologies for the space between posts. As you will see a little bit later on, I am completely slammed and shirked my duties as unasked official blogger of the Muellerland peoples. I know many of you count the hours between posts and that has added up to a very big number that shouldn’t be posted. For all the folks who feel burned by this, please let me give you a and beg for forgiveness. Now let’s first talk about the topic that anyone who knows I live in Mueller but has never visited brings up to me now. Apparently, one of our streets made the news. Yes, we have a sink hole(not very similar to ). From my understanding, a water pipe busted and water has the ability to wash away stuff like earth that holds up streets. The contractors, city and the developer all started pointing the blame finger at each other and when the time came to fix it, like you know, that week, they all decided to run tests and use lawyers to find out who should fix it. A musical chairs of blame except that when the music stops, a chair isn’t taken away. Since I’ve been very far removed from the situation, I am not certain what is going down, but eventually it will all get fixed. However, one bad thing gets in the news and that’s all that people ask you about. What didn’t get in the news was the shoddy workmanship on the baby which has been closed all summer due to a few tiles being defective. Personally, the water is fine and with the amount carcinogens already in the environment I wouldn’t mind a few missing tiles. Heck, we’re even swimming in the water on the “big kid” side. I hear that the baby pool will be fixed in a couple of weeks, so I’ll be able to release genetic carrier number 2 to a splashy existence of summer bliss while I float in the warm water known as the “baby side”. Despite the two issues we have, life in Mueller is still grand. Some new garden homes are coming soon very near the mid-refurbished control tower (in two different shades of blue, no less!). I am looking forward to seeing the new . There is something very nice about being able to just run outside your front door into a green space that you don’t have to spend a minute to maintain. My trees are three years old now and giving a little shade now. We can entertain a dozen shaded people now during one of our fabulous splash nights. By the way, the does not freak out Mueller flies. I wish I would have more to show for my over two months between posts. I’ve been busy doing a job, school, being the world’s greatest dad, and finally starting my own business. I’ve gone and started a . I’m even using our neighborhood Frost bank branch as a holder of the trusteed account for the guaranteed prize fund. Everyone who reads this and likes football should pony up and help a achieve success. In fact, this will help trickle money into the Austin economy as I like to spend my money in Austin on things like food and water, both of which I buy in quantities in the Austin area. In fact, I am offering $1000 bonus in prize money to the person who beats me in that will draft in the coming week. Again, sign up and give me money. I was able to hire the local celebrity known as for a song(He is available for YOUR party!). I know people who know him. To enter the contest, go to the Progressive Fantasy Football World Championship website at . In my last couple of posts, I had planned on projecting the world cup soccer match live in the hanger by Lake Pond. Unfortunately, even though I had sponsors, a beer cart, people to help set up and work it, potties, very large screen HD TVs, and all the permits filled out, the city doesn’t know what to do with the hanger and swiftly denied my application. They said that because I wasn’t an (have they seen my movie nights?) and even though I was non-profit, I didn’t fit what they allowed. Bummer too, because can you image the celebration on wonderstrike? I guess I just wait till the next time England play USA in a world cup game. I’ll only be 88 then! I have been watching the games at the closest cool bar that we have. found on Corona street opens conveniently early for world cup soccer games. I’ll be there tomorrow at 9am for the very important USA v. Algeria game. I encourage all Muelliopians to show up and not only support the local bar, but the national team. Unfortunately, I have to work after the game and will only be drinking water. (there’s that water theme again!) The only problem with Nomad is that its a bit of hike to walk to and from there. I swear the first person that opens up a Mueller bar will cash in big time. Please wait till after I'm out of school. Well, hopefully my life will slow down a little bit as so I can do awesome posts again. I only have 16 more weeks of school left and that will be a relief. My new business will only be crazy busy this year because once we program it out, I won’t have to do that much to get it ready in coming years. As always, I end with my underground . I swear somebody should be paying me for this. Next time, I continue the water thread and discuss public drinking fountains. Is metal in the Texas summer a great idea for something to put my lips on?

As Aaron has informed me that his World Cup party has fallen through, I started calling around to find alternatives...I just got off the phone with the folks at I'd suggest that we get together and make Nomad our neighborhood bar for the World Cup.

River Rock
posted by icemonkeyharvest on May 20th, 2010 11:28 PM
Mrs Aaron has finished her project, and I still have two wheelbarrows full of river rock left. The best part, aside from the price (free), is that it is already in two wheelbarrows! Just come on by and wheel away some stone, but please return the wheelbarrows. I'll be home most of the day Friday and through out the weekend. If I'm not, you can help yourself. They are located in the alley behind the house on the corner of McCloskey and Scales under a brown tarp. They are heavy so eat your spinach. Also beware that the black wheelbarrow is old and it's legs are on the verge of failure, so be kind or you may find your stone in a really bad spot.Enjoy.
I need a Flex/Flash programmer for a small job due VERY SOON!!!

Any Flex/Flash programmers out here for a one page application? I need the application to be able to have up to 12 people be on one instance and communicate (chat box, data update). The application will read/write to a database that I'll supply queries and tables to. There will be a need to have multiple instances of the application going on at the same time. I need this applicaiton by two weeks and I'm starting to sweat. The job sounds to me like a one week thing with programming and bug fixes. email me, pm me, call me, drop by, whatever for project specifications, Aaron 947-9111 aaron@pffwc.com">aaron@pffwc.com 4116 scales

Hi Mrs. Aaron, I'm so sorry I didn't reply sooner--for some reason, this reply didn't come into my email box like they usually do. I just happened to see it when scanning the daily digest. I can attach pictures, or I could give you the address where it is located and you could go look at it. Unfortunately, I don't have it with me in Mueller. It's at the home of the person who was in charge of the event--she lives near 2222 and Mopac. The pictures don't really do it justice, FYI. It's gorgeous!

Hey Aaron, I have a tent that might work (we used it for our Grand Opening). It's not huge but it's larger than the canopy style ones. I will get the exact dimensions when I am at the store tomorrow. -M

I got the call today that Catellus and the city have dis-approved my application to host a free party in the hangar for the World cup qualifier of England v. USA. The problem was that the city and the PIAC have not agreed yet on how to handle the hangar for use other than the once a year functions involving an event planner for a non-profit. I'm thinking I'm screwed here as the game will be a noon game in June. Anyone have ideas on how to have a cool party for the neighborhood watching this game? My thoughts involved a tent, but the tent would be too low for viewing or too big and become too expensive. Catellus mentioned the lake park amplitheatre, but now we're dealing with noon time exposed sunlight. C'mon group. Someone surely has a better idea. Free hug to the person figuring this out. AaronAnd yes, I'm still pissed about the bureaucracy ruining my party time. I had some really awesome things planned for y'all.
A Not-So-Brief Message from the Pool Advisory Committee

A Not-So-Brief Message from the Pool Advisory Committee
posted by John Guest on April 20th, 2010 9:09 AM
In light of the continuing and vigorous discussion about matters surrounding the pool, I thought it might be useful if I provide some context for the discussions. The pool I’m talking about is the Ella Wooten Park pool. I usually try to read MuellerCommunity.com every day and I avoid new urbanism, conspiracy theories, mass transit, and things related to cute children. That kind of leaves me focused on dog poop, Family Dollar stores, the verticality of the old control tower, laughing my eyes out with Aaron’s blog, and . . . the pool. I am an old life guard and pool manager. I learned water safety instruction while a student at UT and was one of the late, UT Coach C. J. “Shorty” Alderson’s teaching assistants for teaching his college-level water safety course. “Shorty” among other things was an Olympic diving coach, but that is another story. I was on the first Mueller Pool Advisory Committee and attempted to communicate information and concerns between our neighbors and Jennifer Harvey of Alliance. Because I missed this year’s first meeting of the Pool Advisory Committee, I was nominated in absentia to let you know what’s going on . . . as if I know anything! What I can tell you now is that the Pool Advisory Committee is up and running again. Diane Gierisch, Hon Chan, Ben Kramer attended last Thursday night. Several “slug” neighbors like me were not able to make it. The Pool Advisory Committee is made up of Mueller neighbors who volunteered and were selected by Jennifer Harvey. We advise Jennifer about pool issues, policies, plans, and problems. While the Committee is advisory, it is listened to and heeded appropriately by Jennifer. Jennifer has the responsibility to make sure the pool is operating effectively and serving the community safely, economically, and legally. Sometimes we ask Jennifer to do things that are illegal. She always says “no”. Sometimes we ask Jennifer to change the pool so that it is more expensive. She almost always says “no” unless it has to do with safety. Every time we ask Jennifer to do something that has to do with safety, she says “yes”. In between are a whole series of issues that we work together on often struggling to find a reasonable compromise that will work for the most people. Last week – at the meeting I missed – the Pool Advisory Committee discussed the problems with the steps in the baby pool. They were not constructed adequately two years ago and now are being fixed. Bummer! The Committee discussed the gate and its locking mechanism. It is apparently a heavy gate with the “heavy-dutiest” of electronic locking mechanisms. This mechanism has been upgraded and the gate re-plumbed so hopefully problems will diminish. In the meantime, the gate lock is supposed to operate during the hours the pool is open for residents. When you hear the gate lock click, pull on the gate without trying to turn the handle. Please don’t wedge rocks under the gate to keep it open! Some cards may have been intentionally deprogrammed. Not paying homeowner dues or reporting a lost card may be the cause of this. A number of cards may also have been deprogrammed unintentionally through exposure to other magnetic materials, heat, or maxed-out credit cards (the last one is a joke). Post your frustrating experience with the pool gate on the Forum or email me at johnguest01@gmail.com. For malfunctioning cards, email Jennifer Harvey at jharvey@allianceonline.net. There are continuing discussions about the proper hours for the pool. Pool availability times are dictated by several issues: 1) the dual classification of the Ella Wooten Pool, 2) the maintenance and cleanliness of the pool, and 3) balancing neighborhood interests, safety, and swimmer demands. While funded by the Mueller homeowners through the POA, the pool is regulated by health and safety regulations of both the City of Austin and the State of Texas. Before any of us ever moved in, and in an effort to balance neighborhood resident use with broader access for our non-Mueller neighbors, the Ella Wooten pool was conceived of operating with a dual use classification. One classification makes the pool available to virtually anyone. In this classification, there MUST BE LIFEGUARDS PRESENT. Entry to the pool can have an entry fee associated with it (Mueller residents obtain free entry because of their homeowners dues), but for all practical purposes the Ella Wooten Pool is treated as a public access pool when lifeguards are present. The other classification is private, i.e. the pool can only be used by residents of the Mueller neighborhood. When a pool is classified as private, lifeguards do not have to be present, but reasonable efforts must be made to assure that members of the general public are not granted access to the pool. So Ella Wooten pool has a “split personality”. If we confuse the two personalities, there are negative consequences. The pool can be closed if we let non-Mueller residents swim during private hours (except that residents may have up to four non-resident guests when the resident is also present). The pool can be closed if we keep non-Mueller residents from swimming during public hours. Members of the “public” can be charged with trespassing if they use the pool during private hours. (Members of the Mueller community can also be charged with trespassing if they jump the fence.) The way to avoid this “personality” confusion is to create a time gap between public and private phases of the pool. At one point, we thought an hour long gap made good sense. This turned out to be too long, so the phase change-over time gap was shortened to 30 minutes. There are now people who think 30 minutes is too long. The lifeguards go off contract after 7:00 p.m., creating the impression that the shift to private status has occurred. Others contend that the lifeguards need adequate time to clear the pool of all swimmers and to give a clear indication that the public period has ended. For now, the Pool Committee is supporting the continuation of a 30 minute gap, but this will be reviewed periodically. The other time issue relates to the actual hours of public and private pool operation. The public time is essentially constrained by how much money the POA has to pay for lifeguard coverage. This involves both the number of lifeguards at any one point in time and the total number of lifeguards available to extend hours. In essence the pool is budgeted to supply about seven hours per day/ six days per week. The decision to open at 1:00 p.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday for public swim is tied to the funding for lifeguards. Some people would like later hours; some earlier. Generally, the Pool Advisory Committee thinks it’s about right. The private hours are arrayed around the public hours with a gap for pool phase changeover. The start and stop times are based upon the notion that the pool should have swimmer-free time to recycle its filtration system and to avoid having activity during hours when the surrounding neighborhood and its children are trying to sleep. The decisions to open at 5:00 a.m. and the decision to close at 9:00 p.m. were based upon concerns about noise and the need to have a stretch of tranquil water for pool cleaning and water filtration. The times were set before much of a neighborhood existed around the pool. Now that all the homes are filled, there is some sense that noise is not a concern to the closest houses. The Pool Advisory Committee will reevaluate its previous effort to be a good neighbor after this summer season. The pool also closes totally on Mondays. Some people see this as unnecessary. In truth, there are pools that operate 24/7. Ella Wooten has not been one of them because it is my belief and the belief of many who understand pool cleanliness that a full 24-hour period without use is a better way to reduce impurities in the pool. This method can be over-ruled by increased use of chemicals. This is also a cost of maintenance issue. It too will be revisited periodically by the Pool Advisory Committee. Questions have also been raised about bringing food into the pool grounds. Given our need to treat ants and other insects very carefully, lest undesirable chemicals come into contact with humans and the pool water, we need to remain conscientious about keeping food out of the grounds. The pool is a wonderful resource for the residents of Mueller and surrounding communities. Like all good things, it can be frustrating too. As we enjoy, the pool this spring and during the long, hot summer, we look forward to hearing from you about what you like and what you’d like improved at the Ella Wooten pool. We’ll work hard to make it better.
