Red Wassenich coined the phrase "Keep Austin Weird" in 2000. He was born in Austin and has been a librarian at Austin Community College since 1984. While now living a seemingly normal life, his past shows the roots of weirdness. He and Paul Spragens and others broadcast on Mexican radio border-blaster station XEG the "Brother Heumann Hour," a parody evangelist from the Church of the Coincidental Metaphor. Also with Spragens, he watched TV for a week from sign on to sign off (back when there used to be such a thing). He played a cadaver in the movie The Hunger with David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve. He is now happily married to Karen Pavelka.
