At last! SXSW 2012!

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night shall keep a Variety film critic from his appointed rounds. But let me tell you: The kind of rain I encountered today while driving from H-Town to Austin -- a trip that took me nearly twice as long as it usually does -- can sure as hell slow you down a lot. Fortunately, I've made it to dry land, gotten myself settled, checked out the WiFi in my Extended Stay digs -- and now I'm already to start being festive here at SXSW 2012. A good thing, too, because it looks like some folks may be keeping an eye on me. (Thanks for the shout-out, IndieWire -- I think.)

But, really, I can't complain: After all, there are other festivals I could be covering right now.

"Top Ten," "reliable," "consistently sharp and entertaining views, "established name," "ideal Texan critic," "reviews reflect...knowledge base," "vibrant writing style," "never comes across as condescending to his readers."

Yep, that sounds about right to me!

Congratulations. Way to go, Mr Top Ten film critic!
