At the moment he burst forth from the womb a new star formed and illuminated the sky, the seasons suddenly changed from winter to spring and a double rainbow appeared. At three weeks old he had learned to walk and by eight weeks he was talking. His voice over career began soon after. He was raised in Austin, Texas, which was retroactively named after him.

Austin currently resides in Dallas Texas, where he enjoys his leisure time as a master golfer, after picking up the game for the first time in 2016 when he shot a 38-under par round that included no fewer than 11 holes in one. He consists on a humble diet and employs a servant to inspect every grain of rice that is served to him; any with the most minor of flaws is discarded. He has never used a toilet as his body recycles everything it consumes with flawless efficiency. Also, he invented the hamburger. Follow him on Twitter!

Alabama Garrison of the 501st Legion
Star Wars!

Their Mission!

To Promote Interest in Star Wars: While a growing number of people are experiencing a reawakening of their Star Wars fandom, new generations are seeking ways to celebrate their passion for George Lucas's modern mythology. The 501st Legion brings these fans together, reinforcing the enduring longevity of the Star Wars saga.

To Facilitate the Use of Costumes: Some fans are content to collect action figures...other fans want to be action figures. Nothing professes your passion quite like building your own detailed costume replica of a classic Star Wars villain, and there's nothing quite like the feeling that comes from bringing the characters of Star Wars into the real world and sharing the magic with others.

To Contribute: While our organization was founded to simply provide a collective identity for costuming fans with similar interests, the 501st is proud to put its resources to good use through fundraising, charity work, and volunteerism

Owen Ni
DJ Guest

Owen Ni (pronounced Nye.. you know, like that one science guy.) is an Artist, Producer, music lover, and jack of all grooves from North Alabama. As a child, he fell in love with music & art through his parents. He began producing while still in middle school, and eventually had his first official release with a label at only 15 years old. With age came a more defined sound and way of working with his craft. He began making music reminiscent of the early days of Techno and House music, along with all it's sub genres. His style is a melting pot of flavors old and new. From the raw drums of Detroit warehouse tracks to the floating chords of Berlin. Owen's constant search for new ways to do the old school is as refreshing as it is nostalgic. A firm believer in DIY & the underground, Owen Ni founded Run On Recordings in 2015 as a way for artists to network with others and flex their artistic freedoms. Owen continues to constantly work on various projects and is always looking for more. Spending the past several years touring across the north east at only 20, he has made a name for himself among many of the underground scene's finest, and now signed to various labels across the globe.

Locally, he can be found working with Spice Radio of Huntsville on his podcast series, Run On Radio, and occasionally DJing at clubs like Safari Lounge and more...
