SXSW 2005

| 1 Comment

This year at SXSW, I took hundreds of photos. Literally, probably 150 a day, and I was there for four days. So, I have many photos to process (digitally) and then text to write, lists to make, laundry that has to be done, cds to listen to - you know, it's damn hard being DJ Wanda!

In any case, please be patient and check back often. The plan is to put most of the stuff up over at and then to put a few more extended photo essays up over here for those die-hard fans of alt. country music.

It's Howdylicious!
