Are we allowed to confess that while we are loving SXSW, we are a little homesick? Notebook Los Angeles talks about their weekend and, yeah, we didn't do any of that.

We did have some quality sushi at the hotel restaurant, though. Who knew they could make good sushi in Austin, Texas? They informed us that the fish was procured daily. From where? How expensive must it be to get all that fresh fish delivered to the middle of the lone star state?

Yesterday was spent meeting some LA bloggers like Sean Bonner of and metroblogging and Michael of Cruftbox who gave us some cool swag: A cruftbox bottle opener. LAist needs some logo gear. We came up with some cool ideas for the future of LAist that we will be implementing soon. We also hung out at the Film conference as well learning about music documentary from some of the best in the business and from one of the best documentary subjects: The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne.

It made us a little less sad that we weren't in Los Angeles for KCRW's Sounds Eclectic Evening. The first time in 3 years we've missed it. A SXSW attendee was walking around with a Rilo Kiley bag and that made us feel better too.

Today is the panel we'll be on and the bloggies where we'll hopefully get to accept an award as proxy for our friends at Go Fug Yourself.
