Day end minus one of SXSW... I slept in till 11:30 this morning and it was NICE. Screw the documentary on credit card debt... don't buy stuff you can't afford, end of movie. Instead, I started my day with a doc about how messed up the record industry is. What made it good was that it showed a few groups I'd never heard of before playing awesome music as an example of how a lot of the best music nowadays is really hard to find... so I got a few names on a list of people to check out later and that's cool. The doc had some interesting interviews with Erykah Badu and Branford Marsalis among others, got some nice shots in at Clear Channel, and was clearly made by local guys because there's tons of shots in Antone's and ACL fest and stuff like that. So that's cool too. To be honest this movie wasn't on my original list of the "must see"s but as a movie semi-chosen by random to fill an empty spot, I think I could've done a lot worse. It's great when you walk into a movie completely cold knowing nothing about it at all and having it be good and having a good time with it. well worth watching.
