This week has been the famous Austin-based “South By South West” convention and shows. I have not had the chance to go to one yet, but I am penciling it into my calendar for next year. Obviously, I have such a heavy travel schedule this year that there was no way to make it and keep my job.
I heard taht Lou Reed was giving the keynote address at one session and that someone’s cell phone went off during his address. He got a little irked and said, “What does ‘Turn off your cell phone’ mean in Texas? Do you have to say it differently, like ‘Howdy?’ Shove it in a cow.”
