Shootin’ Marbles on the Eastside

marbles1.jpg

Homegrown Austin production company Beef & Pie premiered Life Is Marbleous! tonight at Red’s Scoot Inn and Bier Garden. The Marble Lady, Cathy Runyan-Svacina, was on hand to lend pointers as snap-buttoned patrons marbled their way through a hard-fought tournament. Haven’t heard of shooting marbles? Okay, neither had I. It’s of an era gone by. And that’s what makes this documentary so unique. Beef & Pie opens our eyes to a simpler world where marbles are collected, bought, sold, shot and all around adored.

Music by honky tonk purist Dale Watson.

What’s Behind the Door?

SXSW is an Austin event. And Door Number 3 is an Austin advertising agency. We're interested in how new ideas in advertising, media and branding will be presented during these 9 quick days. From inside the lecture halls where top specialists present their thoughts, to out on the streets where advertising is put to the test on tens of thousands of festival-goers. We'll be there with the complete coverage, reports, photos, editorials, and perhaps some tricks on how to sneak into a few sweet afterparties.
