    I’m about as close as I’ll ever manage to physically get to SXSW, it would seem, so I may as well load it all on the iPod and pretend thanks to the easy to use (UNOFFICIAL) SXSW 2009 Torrent

    In the event the above site is down, I’m including links to local torrent files at the bottom of this post

    These torrents include all the MP3 files publicly posted on the SXSW website as of Feb 21, 2009 (1053 files, 5.05GB). More may show up, which we may package up into an third torrent at some point in the future. These torrents were initially seeded Feb 21, and the third torrent was added on March 9 with all the late additions;

    1. SXSW_2009_Showcasing_Artists_Part1.torrent – #-L 519 files, 2.44GB

    2. SXSW_2009_Showcasing_Artists_Part2.torrent – M-Z 534 files, 2.60GB

    3. SXSW_2009_Showcasing_Artists_Part3.torrent – #-Z 214 files, 1.09GB

    Local copies of the torrent: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

    Update: Greg Hewgill has updated torrents for the 2005-2008 collections as well.

    Update 2: File 3 with another 214 MP3 files is put up just as I’m getting to the end of the other 1000+ tunes. Only ten songs left…

      “Died Young, Stayed Pretty” is a candid look at the underground poster culture in North America. This unique documentary examines the creative spirit that drives these indie graphic artists. They pick through the dregs of America’s schizophrenic culture and piece them back together. What you end up with is a caricature of the black and bloated heart that pulses greed through the US economy. The artists push further into the pulp to grab the attention of passersby, plastering art that’s both vulgar and intensely visceral onto the gnarled surfaces of the urban landscape…
