Speaking of South By Southwest...

...I have a press pass. But the piece I'm doing for the magazine who provided me with the pass is called "SxSW on the Cheap", and my goal is to write about all the things you can do, places you can go, shows you can see, etc., without ponying up $400+ for an access badge. My goal, despite having the pass and a small expense account, is to see and do as much as possible without paying for anything, to advise future budget-stricken music fans how they might do the same. So, really, the press pass is counter the very nature of my purpose, writing-wise.

Which brings up an interesting question: since I don't really need the pass, should I even bring it? I could just give it away (karmic bonus points for nice-guyness!) or I could sell it for less than the face value, since getting even a dollar for it would be pure profit, and I'm sure I can get someone to hand me at least a couple hundred for it ($$$!). The possible downside is that if I do either of these things, I'll have to hope that whoever gets it doesn't make any kind of a ruckus, thus opening up the possibility that word will get back to the magazine and I'll get busted.

Hmmmmm.
