I can’t believe it, but I actually forgot my iPhone cable this morning at Vanessa’s. Luckily IFC has a charging station. This could be bad.

I got to sit next to the amazing @alisonwillmore from IFC, during Tiny Furniture. It was a fun note-taking session.

2:33 PM Mar 15th via Tweetie

This was my first time getting food at the Ritz. I had fries, a root beer, and a hefeweizen! Luxurious setting, despite a neck cramping view

Having some free beer at the Ifc house, usage of the iPhone charger is limited, causing whining by those who arrived after me.

Taking the shuttle to the Alamo Lamar. Is there wifi around there to get work done before the screening?

I’m trying to get @kyle_newman to see People vs George Lucas with me tomorrow, mostly to get his rebuttal afterwards.

4:25 PM Mar 15th via TweetDeck

I have an absolutely perfect seat for Earthling. Getting falafel and the Monty Python ale for dinner. #SXSW #Drafthouse

4:52 PM Mar 15th via TweetDeck

@ThePlaylist yeah, I wasn’t blown away by Earthling either.

7:03 PM Mar 15th via TweetDeck in reply to ThePlaylist

Out of the Earthling screening, back into the SXXpress line for Cherry. I was not a fan of Earthling by the way.

7:04 PM Mar 15th via TweetDeck

Rain? What is this, Portland? I guess I’m staying at the Alamo to see some secret movie…!!!

9:54 PM Mar 15th via TweetDeck

Oh man, I’m in the front corner for Centurion, my neck is going to kill me in the morning, I think it’ll be worth it.

10:04 PM Mar 15th via TweetDeck

A late night, hyperbolic tweet about Centurion: The best Iraq War movie set in ancient Britain. Semi-joking.

12:26 AM Mar 16th via TweetDeck

This movie had IED’s, Decapitation, Kidnapping, Guerilla Warfare, Imperialists, and politicians complaining about the weather. #Centurion

12:32 AM Mar 16th via TweetDeck

@FyodorFish as soon as I get home on Wednesday evening, I’ll be posting lots of SXSW reviews

1:04 AM Mar 16th via TweetDeck in reply to FyodorFish

You know, I really could have done without the narration in Centurion. That and the font for the titles/languages.

1:20 AM Mar 16th via TweetDeck

Are there press notes up online for Centurion? I can’t remember all of the names, or even begin to know how to spell some of them.
