Twenty-somethings: Austin (The Walrus Review)

If you grew up in the generation I did, then you will surely remember, with great reverence, The Real World on MTV. Whether it was the first season (which I watched) or the 11th season in Chicago (Where I lived at the time and bumped into MTV filming more than once), The Real World started…
