South by (part 1).Posted: March 24, 2011
I managed to take a few photos at the “Birmingham Goes to SXSW” show last weekend in Austin, Texas. The first batch is below. Click any pic to embiggen.
The Birmingham News covers “Birmingham Goes to SXSW.”
I didn’t get to go to any of the “South by” (that seems to be SXSW’s nickname these days) film panels, but at least some of those panels have been archived online. Here are a couple I want to listen to: “From the Sausage Factory: Inside the Film Press” and “You Are Not a Publicist: Criticism vs. Advertising.” (via James Rocchi and Badass Digest)
Venture Bros. Season 4 hit Blu-ray on Tuesday. I would have mentioned it before now, but I’ve been behind on Team Venture news lately.
Mp3tag is a “a powerful and yet easy-to-use tool to edit metadata of common audio formats.” I usually edit that MP3 metadata with iTunes, which can be a little buggy sometimes. The only problem I’ve found with Mp3tag (so far) is that it’s Windows-only.
Pica-pic.com features online emulations of several “vintage” (or cheesy, depending on your point of view) handheld electronic games. Check out the link–it’s a cool site, and my description doesn’t do it justice. (via Engadget)
Somebody is reinventing typing. Poorly. (also via Engadget)
