The Most Amazing and Awesome Film Loglines for SXSW 2013

The Most Amazing and Awesome Film Loglines for SXSW 2013

We are about five weeks away from the big tech-film-music extravaganza SXSW. I, of course, will be there lurking in the movie theaters and enjoying all the one-of-a-kind films the fest has to offer and stuffing my face with queso and Chi’Lantro. Last week, they announced the feature film lineup and today they announced the...
SXSW Report Part 3: Squirming Through 'Compliance', Things Get 'Electrick', Trade Show Swag

SXSW Report Part 3: Squirming Through ‘Compliance’, Things Get ‘Electrick’, Trade Show Swag

Yesterday was cloudy, but it was warm. So warm that I developed a sheen of grease on my face and felt a consistent trickle of sweat down my back. It made me feel sexy. The music portion of SXSW also started yesterday, but I have been too busy trying to catch up on my movies....

SXSW Report Part 2: ‘Eden’, ‘Gayby’, ’21 Jump Street’, and a bag of Chex Mix

Yesterday, it was a sunny day in Austin. So sunny that I decided to start my day off with a morning run on Town Lake. I got lost. In any matter, the weather allowed me to wear a pair of over priced Tom Ford sunglasses and a short sleeve shirt so that I could act...
Flashback: Maroon 5 at Stubb's in 2003

Flashback: Maroon 5 at Stubb’s in 2003

Whilst watching The Voice, the mere presence of Adam Levine made me flashback to my time in Austin — particularly a balmy evening at Stubb’s on October 5, 2003. The lineup that evening included Gavin DeGraw, Marc Broussard, and Maroon 5 — a band that I barely knew about at the time. I wasn’t really...

LL Cool J ‘Rocks the Bells’ and Licks His Lips and at SXSW

You may have noticed that I didn’t do my normal Monday “Workout Song of the Week” post — it’s because I have been busy traipsing around Austin for South by Southwest and my lack of sleep has made me lazy. Therefore, I have not been working out…but that is neither here nor there. Nonetheless, if...
Geist Infection: SXSW

Geist Infection: SXSW

South by Southwest: it’s in the air and everyone wishes they were there or they are denying the fact that they wish they could be there. Even though the interactive festival is done and the film festival is wrapping up and I TOTALLY missed a bunch of things that I WANTED to attend, I am...

SXSW Adventures: Girls Who Boost Their Self-Esteem by Dancing on Bars

Spotted at Dizzy Rooster on 6th Street during SXSW. It’s quite a vision, right? It’s like low budget production of Coyote Ugly. I wonder if they have daddy issues.

Fist Pumping to Lyrics Born and Joyo Velarde at SXSW

South by Southwest is one of the most prominent indie music extravaganza in the nation – maybe even the world. Actually, Austin is considered “The Live Music Capital of the World” so the latter is probably more accurate. Having lived there before, I do miss the easy access to live music, so going back to...

SXSW Adventures: A 6th Street Homecoming

It’s been quite a while since I have been back to Austin’s infamous 6th Street, home of slurring college co-eds, abrupt STOKED! frat boys, the ubiquitous WOO girls, the Best Wurst you’ll ever have, untucked button-downs with square toed shoes, and bars that reek of vomit as far as the nose can smell (thank you...

SXSW here I come!

Even though I wish I was there for the interactive and film festivals, I am headed to Austin tomorrow for a little South by Southwest action. Translation: I am going to Austin to get fat. I tend to plan my trips to Texas based solely on food: Hula Hut, Taco Cabana, Kerbey Lane, Chuy’s, Pappadeaux,...
