Hell Week Starts very soon....

March 9th, 2007 (12:53 pm)

SXSW Film and SXSW Interactive, Begin TODAY.

There's an electronic GUINNESS clock in the bar (Opals) counting down the days,
hours, minutes and seconds, until St Patrick's day...
though it has been muttered amongst we minions
that this is in fact the count down
to the END of SXSW.


(The boys at LOVEJOYS want to reprogram theirs after the 17th,
to count down to the end
of our current president's reign.
Nice. ^_^)

But honestly, I cannot help but look forward as I do every year to the influx of energy,
and People, from ALL over the World--filling my little Town for the SXSW Festival.

Alas this year I will not be the girl out there in the middle of it all, giving a play by play.
I will always look back on my three-years-in-a-row with a Platinum Badge as some of
the most exciting weeks of my entire life. *laughing* Really, there is NOTHING like it.

Meeting, face to face, being able to talk with so many of my Heroes from Writers to Film
makers, to..........oh my yes--high fiving John Stamos at the OSLO when I won the Rick
Springfield bet with Jenn!!! Going to panels and hearing speakers from the Computer,
Film and Music Industry...

And the FILM FESTIVAL!!! Oh I will so miss the Film Festival most. Being in a dead run
all day, from 10 in the morning to the 2 in the morning--seeing as many as five films a
day all over Town. And hitting the 'After Parties' later--flashing my creds as I strolled in
with the Biggies. *laughing* I never took a moment of it for granted. Every year was
certainly going to be my last--so I swallowed it whole and digested each experience.

This SXSW, they will have to come to me. I will be the little brunette with the bum ankle
running her ass off, and laughing a lot. It's going to be a loooooong wild week--even
within the confines of Opal Divine's Penn Field.

I look forward to the adventure.

Ooh! Must make sure they get the right ONE!


I'm the one down Congress, not the one on West 6th Street.


I'll get their first round if they tell me you sent them.

Would LOVE to meet your Friends.
