I had to travel 4500 miles in order to get a vaccine that was developed by Turkish immigrants, 2 miles away from my house in Mainz Germany.

Privilege is having the financial mobility to take a plane back to Indiana, so I could become immune to a disease that is devastating the world. I hope that if you have access, you're making an appointment to be vaccinated and becoming part of the solution. The world is depending on each and every one of us.

I've gotten both my shots :) I owe that to my job. They've not gotten around to vaccinate people my age (who don't have underlying conditions) in Finland yet.

I hope whoever gave you the shot admired the tattoos!

I'm very, very happy to know you'll have this barrier to covid! And as the song goes" "But I would walk five hundred miles And I would walk five hundred more Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles".. www.youtube.com/watch?v=tbNlMtqrYS0

My wife and I are fully vaxxed...Hope to see you in Birmingham Alabama someday soon brother

I received my second dose of the Moderna vaccine today . I feel pretty good so far . 🀞🏻

Got mine in Feb... but can we talk about how fantastic that mask is?!?!?!

Got mine last month. Let's get back to normal!

I got an appointment for next week! πŸ’‰πŸ’‰πŸ’‰

Can't wait for music venues to open and to see you live!

The choice in shirt and mask is fantastic

I got my first shot last Sunday.

Got my 2nd dose on Tuesday. Stoked!

Truth.

What flavor, j&j, Moderna, phizer 🀣? I got the j&j. It was pretty good I'd recommend it.

Love the mask! 😻 I got my first shot today. Congrats πŸŽ‰

Unfortunately, this country has been overrun by idiots.

Not yet, and never ever will be.

Mainz is only an hour and a half from my restaurant.

U live near Mainz ?

As an enormous Star Trek fan, one of the reasons I've been excited about getting home was to make the pilgrimage to see this statue of Captain Janeway. Something important that few are aware of is how in the future, her favorite musician is local 21st century antifascist country songwriter and singer, Austin Lucas.

It's in small print on the plaque, I swear. πŸ˜‰

Yeah she'd love you, a mate did a battlestar galactica concept album, mayeb you want to do similar with Voyager, though in truth right now there are more pressing subjects to discuss, anyway just because I enjoyed it so much, also one of the hardest working guys in the British scenewww.youtube.com/watch?v=kFaenD2sDAw

I heard she adored the triple Star Wars concept album! ;-)

Star Trek has informed my own political views. Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra.

So awesome!! You know she's returning as Janeway for a new animated series soon?

I need Star Trek statues in my village

When she presses her insignia, it plays your music.

I'd vouch for that!

Big Trekkie here! Just recently got my Partner hooked on it and now we're watching all there is!

Just gonna leave this here... note the T-shirt

The composition of the picture is perfectamundo, IMO. She gazing across the centuries wryatcha, pal! KUDOS!

Dude, that statue is cool as hell!

Happy to have your ass back in the states!!

Janeway is amazing!

Enjoy Bloomington! You have to try Mother Bear's Pizza

i love Kate, she reminded me on another Kate..miss Hepburn of course..:) xx

I'm jelly😭😭 she made a lot of mistakes but still my fave.

Johnny Cougar delivered pizzas in Bloomington, IN. Large Za, sausage/mushroom

Ok but where’s the sisko statue Austin?

Love long and prosper, brother !!!

Gravel ftw

Dude Austin, where did you get that Wu-Tant antifa shirt?

Nice bike πŸ‘

YES!!

Y'all, I'm literally sitting on my couch in Bloomington for the first time in almost 17 months. You have no idea what it means to me to be home finally after the day I've had. Folks have easily donated enough to pay for my entire repair and another wear and tear repair that I knew I was going to need and is now becoming super pressing.

Thank you everyone for being so amazing. You have made me feel like a million bucks on a day that started out really depressing. πŸ₯°

Welcome stateside. I loved following your adventures. Hope to catch a show soon.

Beautiful! Wonderful folks embrace wonderful folks! EnJOY your folks, family and friends Austin XO

Welcome home... I know your momma must be so very happy. ❀️

Ha! I can't remember the last time I was away from my house for 17 hours. :D

Welcome home!! So glad you got the dough to fix the van! coming home to find you’ve been hit by the Monroe county meth mechanics sucks πŸ˜‘! Catalytic converters been gettin stolen like crazy in b town and surrounding for the last few months... 4 of them just yesterday at cut right in broad daylight! Several taken off cars while folks were hunting mushrooms... keep an eye on it if you can after you get her fixed- I’d bet that if yours was stolen, a lot of your neighbors were as well, and these thieves seem to like to keep hitting the same places repeatedly.....

Glad you are home and I like that shirt man! 🀘🏽

Welcome back. Hope to catch another show in the near!

Glad to help, welcome back!

glad to have home Austin ❀️

Glad you’re stateside. Guess you’ll never go west Emily again! πŸ˜‰

This makes us happy, too!!

Welcome home buddy!

Welcome home Brother!!

I'm going to do something nice for everyone who donated. Just gotta figure out what.

Welcome home Bud.

Welcome back!

Welcome back!!

Knew you'd get a silk purse out of a sow's ear of a day!!!! SOOOOO glad you and Corina are back at your home. <3 Hugs from your auntie ;)

No place like home 🏠

Y'all, seriously. I can't believe how generous and kind you all are.

The power of voluntarism can be astounding. Thank you for the art that you create. I love and appreciate it.

Welcome home!

Good on ya!

Stoked that it means you'll make the Blue Island show!!!

*** Update, I've fully paid this repair, thank you everyone for all your support!!!***

My catalytic converter was stolen off of my van while I was away in europe. It's an absolute bummer of a way to be welcomed home but I hope whoever stole it fed the shit outta their kids and managed to put a smile on the face of someone they love. I blame systemic poverty, not the individual but sadly the burden of this particular theft falls squarely on me.

If y'all aren't hurting and can help a fella out with a few extra bucks then I'd be super grateful. Either way, I love y'all and the support you've shown already and throughout my life.

Thank you for everything.

Bummer. For what it's worth our Son had his catalytic converter stolen recently as well. Misery and company as they say. Cheers

What a bummer to come back to! It’s a fairly big issue happening all over Portland lately as well... They make a special lock you can put over the new one to help prevent it from happening again.

A heartfelt thanks to everyone for showing such generosity & kindness to Austin. He called from northern Indiana. His van is repaired & he’s heading back to Bloomington! -Austin’s mom

My catalytic converter was stolen off my 2006 Prius in front of my East Nashville house. Bummer. 😒

Glad you were able to get road worthy again... Denver?

Sorry to hear that! A couple of quid sent!

I’m glad you were able to get it sorted! I have to ask, did you crap your pants when you fired that thing up with no cat on it??

I send you a little something via PayPal. It's my pleasure. Hope it helps.

I only have $10 to send but hope it helps to get alittle closer to a new one !! Some people’s children really suck 🀦🏻‍♀️

People can be turds. Welcome home. ❀️

Ah no. But respect that answer!

Sent $20! Hope that helps!

Curious to know how much you're up to now...

Welcome back ❀️

I'll throw you some extra cash when your at Blue Island Beer Company June 4th🍻

Sent. Good luck. 🀍

..done😊!

Done!

Welcome home man

Do you have Venmo?

Drugs ,crack heads they like your cat converter

Austin Lucas do you accept funds on Facebook for those who don't use PayPal?

Y'all are making me cry with all this generosity. Wow!!!!!

I love your response. I kicked ya a little.

Sadly it probably went towards meth

Facebook hive mind emergency. I need an exhaust repair in Chicago tomorrow, does anyone know anyone who does that kind of work? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Mufflers4Less at Damen & Roscoe (cheaper side) or Joes Expert Auto on Elston (was my go-to in town)

Sal Lutfallah?

I always use Sun Auto Werks 4430 W Lawrence Ave, Chicago, IL 60630, (773) 205-9990

This is my fave repair guy... www.marvinautoservice.com/

This guy was cool with me back in the day and did some exhaust work that wasn't outrageous. It's been a long time though.

Already spoke with the owners and they would love to have ya. Stay cool!

Welcome back! Just got my 5G injection not 15 minutes ago, looking forward to seeing you play in person soon πŸ’
