So it begins again: SXSW 2008 starts today!!!

I doubt I will be able to enjoy many of the official events this year, as I will be working my butt off from now until the 16th--but the energy in Town was enough to get my blood pumping long before I was ever gifted those three years in a row ('03-'05) with a Platinum Badge. (ah, to be a fallen GOD, I tell ya...)

SPRING IN AUSTIN!!! The Texas Mountain Laurel is blooming, and the smell of its almost kool-aid sweet perfume has always been the sign to me that the fun had arrived. So much about this Town is tied to scent for me.

*happy sigh*

I wish I could attend the Lou Reed panel, and I am devastated that DOLLY will in fact not be making it...but more than the stars that come to shine in my Town this time of year, it is the people--the sheer energy of the FOLKS from all over the planet who swarm into my little Austin Texas to share their Films and their computer innovations, and yes--even their Music....THAT is what makes this so special to me.

I will get to meet them, from Malawi to Minneapolis......sleeping on couches, filling the cheap hotels like cord wood, roaming my streets and asking for directions.
I get to do what I do best, what I love most--share the wonders of my little Town.

My name is Ginger, i'll be your waitress tonight.
