SXSW 07: The Mongrels

Me'n'Tully.jpg

Myself and Silver Jew director Mike Tully (right to left….duh) at the traditional SXSW softball tournament and BBQ that brings the 10 day event to a close. We were on the Mixed Media team, affectionately dubbed the “Mongrels.” Alas due to an injury I was unable to do more than coach 1st and pinch hit (notice the glove on slugger Tully’s hand and the beer in mine), but it was fun all the same. The team put up a damn good fight, including sustaining several injuries, smashing our first opponents 22-4 and going up 6-4 against the 2005 champions, Print Media before going all Bad News Bears in the last inning and losing, 8-4. It was a hard-fought game and damn it, we’ll get ’em next year!

I Am A Dick or “Go See Cocaine Angel Today!”

I, ladies and gentlemen, am an asshole. That’s right, an asshole. I promised my friend Mike Tully that I would blog about his film Cocaine Angel that is screening at the Pioneer Theater until tonight and I dropped the fuckin’ ball. I should have dropped it on my meat head. Well, here’s a last-ditch “make good” attempt that’s about a week too late, but maybe I can inspire one person, two people (5 people?) to hit the finale of the run, which is tonight, Tuesday, February 27th at 9pm. Read more about the film here and buy tix here. It’s really a fine film. See, I said so, here. And he’s got a new film coming soon, too! (Guess what? It’s good!)

Some Great (Some Not) Missing Comments

So apparently I had the junk filter on my blog set a little bit too high and several legitimate comments were deemed junk by the filter and thus were not emailed to me for approval. If the comment is by a legitimate person and not a spam ad for viagra, xanax, online poker, etc. I am generally of a mind to publish them and then respond to them, if needed. Thus, I apologize to Claire, Tully, Dickmac, Manohla Dargis, Richard Schenkman and others whose comments were inadvertently left off the blog. As a bit of a “make good,” I will post them all in full here, complete with links to the original posts and I will, over the next day or so, reply to some of them on the original posts, themselves. Even the following insane, moronic and anti-Semitic rant by “Claire” (whose email address I was extremely tempted to post…):
You stupid kike, CNN was NOT celebrating Castro’s illness, the cubans [sic] in Miami were. Why? Castro has tortured and killed thousands of Cubans during the past 40 years, that is why. CNN was just reporting their joy over that dictator’s possible death. Don’t you dirty jews [sic] have dozens of hollocaust [sic] movies coming out every year? should [sic] people feel happy about concentration camps? should people mourn Hitler’s death? get real asswipe!
From a post entitled: CNN International – Offensive Ghouls
Well Claire, you’re wrong, stupid and a bigot and really, I shouldn’t waste my time responding to anyone who starts a comment with “you stupid kike” and includes the insane ramblings that you do….so I won’t. Engaging people like you in debate is like trying to convince a chair that it’s a butterfly. It’s just not going to happen. Just crawl back into your hole and please…don’t breed. Out of curiosity, does anyone else see the inherant contradiction in someone attacking Castro’s perceived human rights violations while at the same time calling me a “dirty Jew?”
Which brings us to our next comment. Click the link below to see Richard Schenkman’s far more rational, eloquent, educated, reasonable and intelligent response to this post: It’s Time To Go, Joe: An Open Letter To Senator Joe Lieberman and the rest of the comments I missed over the past 6 months or so….
