Robbie Pickering, director-writer of Natural Selection, which last night won the SXSW award for Best Narrative Feature — bar at Austin’s Driskill Hotel, Wednesday, 3.16, 1:05 pm.

I would face a firing squad before wearing these Creature from the Black Lagoon toe-hugger shoes. They make the wearer look like he/she has Hobbit feet.

I humped it all the way over the Alamo Drafthouse on Lamar the other day. It’s a bit of a walk, and when you finally get there you discover that this legendary theatre is…located at the rear of a U-shaped shopping center? In my head that killed the lore of this place. The shuttle back to downtown Austin took forever so I flagged a cab. No offense but I’d like to avoid coming back here again, if possible.
