Sorry I disappeared last week. It was a taxing time emotionally for me. As of last Friday, I’ve transitioned to living as female full time. I have a personal blog where I go into that in detail, so I’ll spare you now. I just wanted to be clear on why I had missed some posts.
Now though, I’ll have a lot to write about. I flew into Austin on Wednesday so I can attend the SXSW film festival for the second year. I had an amazing time last year, and anticipate having a great time as well this year. I’m not sure how often I’ll post; I’d love to do daily updates, but don’t want to commit to a frequency just yet.
Tonight is opening night, and the headliner is the new Linklater film “Everybody Wants Some!!.” As much fun as the world premier would be, I’m going to end up passing on it. I’ve been looking forward to seeing the film “Cameraperson” since I heard of it months ago, and the screening tonight is the only one (of the two) that fits into my schedule.
I will be checking out “Everybody Wants Some!!” later in the week as it fits in well, but I’m not making major films a priority at the festival. As much as I’m looking forward to Nichols’s “Midnight Special,” it will be opening in theaters right when I get back from the festival, so I’m going to use one of my limited screenings on things I can easily see later. I’m hoping that I can find something that lives up to last year’s winner “Krisha.” Looking forward to updating this blog more frequently this next week.
