I realized that I haven't mentioned that J. and I got film passes for SXSW. They cost $65, which, by our math, is a bargain if we see more than 8 films. J. made out a prospective schedule incorporating most of the films we want to see, and it includes about 4 or 5 films a day through next weekend.
Last night, we also saw Third Ward TX, a documentary about Project Rowhouses, where a group of artists rescued an urban neighborhood. It did the best thing a documentary can do: let you know about something you had no idea existed. Besides which, it was moving, funny, beautiful to watch, inspiring.
