I'm a hopin' SXSW is gonna be a mighty swell pardy

This coming Thursday I'm taking a plane from Manchester to Austin Texas (via Chicago) bound for SXSW. It's my first time in Texas so I'm looking forward to bumping into some famous Texans. After all, Texas is only a small place (right?) and there is bound to be someone I recognise?

The Magnificent Seven Ride

Riding into town with me will be,

I'm a hopin' SXSW is gonna be a mighty swell pardy.
Until I get back on the 17th... take care y'all.

    If you get chance to checkout any music while you there then radio1 stage looks really interesting.

    Good old Zed-Zed Top. Amusingly, Frank Beard is the one without.

    See ya'll in Austin.

    'Lil Willy' Willison? Simon's gonna love that one! Will have to make sure I inform him of that one in our lecture later on!

    'Lil Willy'... ha!

    Campfire? I'm thinking of a famous scene from Blazing Saddles right now.

    Anyway, shouldn't complain - I could have been labelled 'Lil Willy' but Simon got that privilege, heh!

    Regarding famous Texans - last year I was sat in the Omni Hotel lobby bar a stone's throw away from Robert Duvall (strangely missing from the famous Texans list - he is Texan, right? Oh hang on, he's from San Diego). Anyway, there's star-spotting to be had, pardner. Yee-haw!

    Butch? What are you trying to say Andy?

    @ Jon Hicks:
    Clergyman... I can imagine you as a 'gentleman gun man', perhaps a kind of Lee Van Cleef character. Perhaps you leave a cross on the bodies of those you have dispatched to the after-life?

    @ Andrew Hayward:
    I'm not suggesting for a goddam minute that Lil Willy refers to the size of pistol that Simon is packing!

    @ Andy Budd:
    Butch, as in Butch and Sundance.
