Paul Feig Denounces Misogynistic Response To “Ghostbusters” Reboot At SXSW

Since Paul Feig’s announcement of the all-female cast reboot of “Ghostbusters” in December 2014, there has been an unsurprisingly large amount of backlash by mostly young white men claiming the new cast will ruin the old movie simply by existing (that’s not how things work). This has been my favorite laughable “baby man tears” response…

It’s Time To Cry: SXSW Accident Victim Gets Surprise Hospital Room Visit From Her Favorite Band

This year’s SXSW festival was tainted by tragedy when a drunk driver plowed into a crowd of people, killing three and injuring 23. One of the people in that car’s path was 18-year-old Mason Endres, who was walking with a friend when she was hit. She sustained a concussion, cervical spine fracture, broken nose, cracked…

Lady Gaga Got Artistically Barfed On At SXSW

Lady Gaga got covered in vomit last night — for art. Onstage at SXSW last night, the “artist” Millie Brown shoved her fingers down her throat and barfed bright green liquid all over Gaga. She was wearing a white apron, so you could really see the green barf. Gaga performed the rest of her…

Hey, Ladies Of SXSW, Steer Clear Of This Guy

South by Southwest, the annual music/film/tech/excuse to eat tacos festival, began last week. It’s a great way to see a bunch of bands and network, we suppose, but it’s also an opportunity to make new friends, in exchange for “services.” At least according to one Craigslist poster, who offered perhaps one of the creepier SXSW…

Love It Or Hate It: Dree Hemingway’s SXSW Jumpsuit

Dree Hemingway is a full-time babe. She’s the great granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway, and was the model featured in the ads for Justin Bieber’s Someday perfume. So yeah, hardcore babe. So what’s up with this total mom dress she’s wearing to the SXSW afterparty for her new film “Starlet”? What do you think? Tell u…

The Soapbox: On SXSW’s “Homeless Hotspots” And Trolling For Charity

BBH, the same ad agency behind Axe body spray’s noxiously viral campaigns, have hit the streets of massive internet partyapocalypse South by Southwest this week – well, actually, they haven’t hit any such streets. But they have outfitted 10 homeless men with 4G wireless devices and T-shirts stating “I Am a Homeless Hotspot.” Internerds struggling for we…

Frisky Q & A: Singer/Songwriter Sally Seltmann Chats About Her New Album

The moment Sally Seltmann started to sing at the Presbyterian Church during SXSW, my ears instantly perked up. Maybe it was the sound of her angelic voice in a dimly lit church or her jaunty, delicate melodies that got me. After hearing her perform songs from her soon-to-be-released album, Heart That’s Beating (due out o…

SXSW Diary: I Came, I Saw, I Conquered

SXSW is officially over. Teardrop. I seriously can’t put into words how much fun it was. My yearly trip to SXSW is important to me. Why? Duh. Because music is my soul. And even more importantly, because I think of it as my annual chance to practice being spontaneous (not my strong suit), to go…

SXSW Diary: Does Courtney Love Have Fake Ears?

This morning I’m trying to recover from a musicover. I took in more live shows than my body could handle yesterday, was little bit overwhelmed by too much wonderfulness. Lots of coffee, a Tylenol , and maybe some dude watching should do the trick.

I knew yesterday was going to be the best day…

SXSW Diary: It’s All About The Day Partay

Here is the part where I take 20 seconds and admit that I might be a wee bit tired. But don’t tell anyone. There is no rest for the weary at SXSW. It’s 10:30 a.m. and once again, the streets of Austin are buzzing with hot boys and hot bands. So, if they build it,…

SXSW Diary: I Like Miike (Snow) … And All The Other Dudes Here

As I sit here in the lobby updating you about the crunk goings-on at SXSW, there is an impromptu concert going on in the lobby of my hotel. Yeah … the lobby. Because that’s how they roll here in Austin. I haven’t even finished my morning coffee yet and I’m listening to a dope cover…

SXSW Diary: Indie Rock Meets Mardi Gras

In case you’ve been living in an abandoned cave for the last 10 years and you haven’t heard of the annual South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, TX, then let me paint a picture for you. Downtown Austin gets crunk while thousands of hot indie rock and film dudes and dudettes from all over…

He Said/She Said: To Blog Or Not To Blog?

Recently, we found ourselves in Austin, Texas for South By Southwest’s Interactive Conference. It was a tornado of fish tacos, rain and excessive Twittering. But the rare occasion to have bloggers and big players in new media together for a week made it a perfect opportunity to ask their opinion on the web-couple’s ultimate dilemma:…
