Quick movie/pop culture announcement:
Tim League (the mad genius behind the Alamo Drafthouse, Fantastic Fest the Rolling Road Show) and Devin Farci (formerly of CHUD, internet raconteur) have gathered together a great team and launched a new site, BadassDigest.
I would recommend getting in at the ground floor of this one. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a project of Tim’s be less than wildly successful and the coolest things you’ve ever seen or experienced. Devin, for all of his occasional bluster, is one of most insightful film reviewers working today and each time I see him he manages to make me laugh about something I didn’t find funny or look at a situation in a completely different light. (Which, for a jaded fuck like me, is rather refreshing.)
And as someone not on Austin? I love the idea of having the Drafthouse zeitgeist and community online.
