SXSW Day #4: This one’s for the fans

Phew, back from a full day traveling. I probably shouldn’t give idjuts like this any attention, but this showed up in the link backs, and reading it in the context of absorbing so much of the SXSW greatness really drove home to me why it was worth the hassle of…

SXSW Day #3: Retro Hour

For most of the day during Friday of SXSW, we took a brief break from seeing shows and saw friends instead. But by 8:30 at night, it was back on. We tried to go see Metric at Stubb’s, but the line was incredibly long, so we gave up. (Turns out…

Vote for our panel

Or we will do something really awful to this kitten. Like wake it up. What kind of monsters do you think we are? Anyway, today’s the last day of voting for panels for SXSW. If you haven’t voted yet, please vote for the one Jesse and I are proposing. And…

Friday Genius Ten “You’d Thought I’d Quit!” Edition

Ah hell no! I just got off schedule because of all the SXSW and traveling and stuff. But the Genius ten is back, for everyone who enjoys reading random playlists of music. So, leave a random ten, or follow suit and do a Genius ten. Today’s song is picked for…
