Well not really because I've actually heard pretty good things about SXSW. For those of you who don't know or never heard of SXSW, South by Southwest is a Music and Film Festival in Austin, Texas.
That's all I know really. Here's the website for more info:
Anyhoo, the major reason why I was anti over SXSW was because last year they did a comedy show with Margaret Cho and Margaret posted a group picture with all the other participating comedians in the festival. Here's the photo I'm talking about:
This group shot made me feel insanely jealous because I know in my heart I belonged in this photo as a participating comedian.
I know what you guys are thinking, why didn't I just cut out a my head and paste it on that picture? I'm lame but I'm not that lame.
I know this blog probably won't speak well of me but I don't care, that's how I really felt this past year and this time around I'm not going to supressing those feelings.
So anyhoo. This past week I was asked to perform in an art show called Collision with other various artist and here's the photo from that!
As you guys can see, I totally found my crowd of eclectic performers like the little bee girl in the Blind Melon music video and no longer feel the need to be pictured with Margaret Cho or any other fuckin comedian to make myself feel validated.
When I took this picture, originally I was trying to get everyone to flip the camera off but felt that would've been a bit much.
Anyhoo, I feel tons better!
