"Full" would be the right word for Austin about now.

Everything's typically bigger in Texas. This guy's Speedo? Not so much. After the jump, snapshots from Austin at overcapacity.

I showed up two hours early to watch the semi-premiere (the version shown at Sundance wasn't quite complete) of John Dies in the End (review here) at the Alamo Drafthouse at the Ritz. Of course, I also got to see the circus of Sixth Street including the Semi-Naked Cowboy with his boots, hat, guitar, and Texas flag Speedo. (Open image gallery at right for a peek.) For a screening at the Paramount I was 45 minutes early just to play it safe, even though I have a badge.

The good news? Music has arrived, so passholders should find the film lines a tad shorter.
