Austinite here who transplanted a few years ago. I saw a dude with an invisible dog leash standing on a corner wearing a knee length sweatshirt and white children-sized sunglasses just for the hell of it. He let his crosswalk light change more than once because he just wanted to be seen. I thought, okay. Austin is the original, Jerry Garcia weird. We coined it. But Portland is the "What the fuck. You are just weird," weird. Which is entirely different. You win.
