A laid-back day in Aus-Town yesterday as the Baron and myself enjoyed some tasty sankwiches at the local Whip-In, then hit a screening of Second Skin, an interesting but seriously overlong documentary about the positive and negative societal and individual aspects of spending way, way, way too much time online playing Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPGs) like World of Warcraft and Everquest.

Our plan was to then go check out a mumblecore psychodrama about three female frenemies called Yeast, but as we dawdled through the carnival atmosphere of Sixth Street, packed with hipsters and weirdos and with bands on every rooftop and streetcorner, we decided it would be more fun to just barhop through the scene, grab a Sergio Leone pizza from Frank & Angie's and check out Austin supergroup Spoon at Auditorium Shores. And then...Survivor (poor Penner!). And Lost (poor Jin!). Yes, even during SXSW, our Thursday night stories take precedence over the real world!
