Chris Mosser takes the KVET reins every weekday afternoon from 3pm to 7pm! Chris was born and raised in Lubbock, and got his radio start there at KRLB "FM-99" and later at the legendary Hub City rock station, 94.5 FMX. Chris was also playing bass guitar for a heavy metal band called Human at that time, and relocated with the band to Austin in 1993. He has been a staple of the Austin radio and live music scene ever since, and is thus in hog heaven. Chris has arguably played more Austin and Texas music on Austin's radio waves than any other radio dude in town!
When he's not sleeping or yapping on the radio, Chris enjoys spending time with his beautiful family, exploring Austin's restaurants, movie theaters and live music venues, building stuff (badly), experimenting with new and exotic cocktail recipes, cooking competition-grade Texas chili and setting things on fire in his backyard.
There can be no mistake that Auburn's Chris Davis' amazing 100-yard field goal attempt return for a TD to beat then-undefeated Alabama is the football play of the week - it might be the play of the decade! Relive it below.
Cold, but fun game surrounded by friends and family on Thanksgiving night! Two nice videos below recap the final home game for the Texas seniors, which produced a pretty convincing Longhorn win that, combined with Baylor's close call with TCU on Saturday, gives the Horns reasonable hope for a win over the Bears in Saturday's final regular season game at Waco, and a very close finish for the Big 12 title, depending on Oklahoma State's fortunes against OU next weekend.
Wait a minute - does this mean we have to root for the Sooners?
I'm lucky to have the central Austin Breed & Co. as a neighbor, and since we moved to the area about 8 years ago, I've spent a lot less time in big-box hardware places. Everything from screws to nails to paint to tools to flags to dishes to every other random hardware or houseware need has been met by Breed, and they have all kinds of cool stuff going for Christmas now too. So, this Small Business Saturday, I encourage you to support the Breed family and their locally owned, two-location, very Austin business for not only holiday shopping, but all year round! I sure do.

Ah, pie. The word itself is fun to chew on. I came across an article that claims to be able to evaluate your overall personality just based on your pie preference - mine's cherry and I can make no argument. Click HERE and Happy Thanksgiving!
Pretty amazing. The high school football team representing Newtown, Connecticut - site of that horrible school shooting last year - dedicated this year's football season to the victims...and after winning their game last night, are undefeated! Way to go boys - story HERE and HERE.
Folks have been getting nervous lately about this so-called "knockout game" supposedly gaining popularity amongst young hoodlums across America, wherein a random stranger on the street is viciously sucker-punched in an attempt to knock him or her out with one blow. Media reports would lead us to believe that kids from Portland Maine to Portland Oregon are joining in the fun.
Problem is, it's not true.
One thing we haven't yet gotten used to in the still-nascent Internet age is the way in which information focus can amplify the perception of particular problems - when we (or the media) start looking for random street violence, we're going to find it everywhere, and in shocking, explosive, scary video too. But when you look at trends and statistics, random street crime is up just slightly nationwide, nowhere near a scary trend or movement and NOT worth being any more afraid of than ever before. If we look hard enough for people wearing pink shirts on Friday, we're going to find a ton of them, but that doesn't indicate a trend.
WARNING RIGHT UP FRONT - There's adult language aplenty in this video of a dad and his daughter who got VERY lucky that they survived a tornado hit on their house and neighborhood. This is the exact nightmare that folks back home in Lubbock dread. These people are incredibly fortunate that they were not wiped off the map.
SECOND WARNING - lots of foul language here, of the type most of us would be spouting too.
