SXSW day parties

7

Do you want the inside track on parties at SXSW.  “Corky” has the scoop in the following link followed by a brief blurb:

Corcoran in Austin 360

WED: Day | Night THU: Day | Night FRI: Day | Night SAT: Day | Night

It used to be the mantra of the first morning at South by Southwest: “Where are all the cool parties?” Everybody would hit town knowing of one or two soirees where the free booze flowed and the gratis chow was spread out on tables, but they’d have to ask around to get a more complete picture.

Nowadays, the party scene is revealed more than a month before the first Shiner Bock is cracked — and then overrated — by an out-of-towner. Internet sites such as showlistaustin.com, donewaiting.com and austinist.com collect party info and spread the news, giving readers weeks to get in good with the party hosts, to get that all-important invite.

Here are some of the things we’ve culled from those sites and brooklynvegan.com. Many are free and open to the public:

Jan and Neil Cronk put on a birthday party for about half a dozen folks, me included, at their home in North Austin. Neil is a talented painter whose work appears at many restaurants and galleries around town. Here’s today’s video podcast of that event.  Shown below is the paiting of Neil’s that hangs in our living room in Cedar Creek.

Viva Les Amis

0

Continuing with a series I started yesterday as foreplay to SXSW in March, there’s another KLRU special on the nostalgic drag hangout and restaurant, Les Amis. I spent a lot of time there. OK. Call me a slacker. One of my exes worked there. I was there for the last day celebration. Les Amis was part of the axis of slackerville, consisting also of the Kenny and Joni’s Omlettry and the Magnolia Cafe.

Here’s from the KLRU site cited above.

If LizLambert’s snappy hotel do-over and its resulting documentary film confirms that not all of old Austin should be considered sacred ground, then Nancy Higgins’ elegiac, heartfelt Viva Les Amis is the flipside of that particularly well-thumbed coinage.

Using footage filmed at and interviews with former employees, regulars, and assorted hangers-on of the late, lamented Les Amis Cafe (now, cruel irony, a Starbucks), Higgins’ film both mourns the passing of the UT area’s artistic and intellectual (and drunken) nexus and celebrates the plainly odd notion that a Parisian-style sidewalk cafe-cum-lifestyle could blossom so deep in the heart of Texas in the first place.

As for this third season of SXSW Presents, festival producer Matt Dentler notes, “The big difference is that we are expanding the episodes to include not just the films themselves but related conversations and panels with the filmakers and figures in the local film and arts community who will be hanging out, talking, and just kind of sharing their thoughts on the films.
The idea of this whole show in the first place was to try and bottle what an experience at a film festival – particularly South by Southwest – would be like. But on your television.”


Times for episode premieres are 9pm, unless otherwise noted. In January, BBQ: A Texas Love Story, Pedal, and two shorts programs will air, but dates and times are TBD.

seeking developer for slides web 2.0 project

We think we may have one of the more interesting and exciting web development projects on the net right now.  It’s tag based searching with the display output being a slide show.

About 3–4 weeks ago we launched a site call http://web2.0slides.com and it got a surprising instant response.  It’s a slide show of 1,400 of the top new web 2.0 web sites.  Within two days of in house launch, we started getting blogged, listed, rated, linked to and buzzed about and we couldn’t figure out why.  Then we realized it was because we were getting noticed in referral logs by the web masters whose sites we were showcasing in our slideshow.

We’re planning several major releases of http://web2.0slides.com , http://tagslides.com and http://sportslides.com which will expand the idea of web2.0slides into all other major topics and categories that we can develop.

Chasing Lance film debuts on Travel Channel Thursday Dec 22 at 7 pm CST

Lance Amstrong News on our Blog – The “docureality” show produced by the Discovery Networks Travel Channel will air on Thursday night, Dec 22 on channel 58 (Grande Communications) and channel 33 (Time Warner).

Many local Austin media outlets carried coverage of this event. On the last day of the Tour de France several thousand people showed up to cheer Lance on and sign several giant yellow cards that the Outdoor Life Network brought to the event.

Here’s the email from producer Bill Delano about the event

Hey Ya´ll~ Tune in tomorrow night for my first film, “Chasing Lance: a Fans Story”!!! Its a great show, was a thrilling adventure and will forever stand as testament to what two friends can do with a camcorder, computer, and a dream.

Here’s the TV Guide sum up: Join five Americans on an emotion packed thrill ride as they chase the Tour all around France supporting their hero in his seventh and final ride. These are true fanatics who do far more than vacation, they redefine what it means to be a true Fan.

Let everyone know and check it out on the Travel Channel on Thursday, December 22 at 8 and 11pm EST (7 and 10 pm CST).

bside.com provides websites for film festivals, best of SXSW

Listen to the podcast http://austincast.com/podcasts/a6031406.bsideberkowitz.mp3 I am never wrong. That’s what the t shirt says. If I get caught by bside wearing it in one of the lines for a film at SXSW I might win a video ipod. These guys “get it”; every year there’s a standout at the SXSW trade show and these guys are clearing in first place this year. They have a great idea and it is full of potential for growth. Here’s the skinny. bside approaches film festivals and offers them free websites. And the websites are visually appealing, full of features and tools and have a great personal calendar that film goers can use to organize the films they want to see. What’s in it for bside? They get to cherry pick the best films and sign them up for a film deal. You see, they’re first and foremost a film distributor and they choose their films by watching the websites they create and follow the buzz. So far they’ve done the Austin Film Festival and they have several more lined up. If you’re a film festival, watch out. These guys are headed your way. If you’re a film maker looking for a distributor, you might want to find ways to send your fans to their websites and get them to create buzz. There is so much potential in this project for the fans of film festivals. I can see these guys expanding this concept with podcasts, videos, interviews, online polls and reviews, blogs, and more. Best of show at SXSW Interactive. No doubt. bside.com
