SXSW: Quasi-Celeb Candids from Austin

If you've deigned to scroll through the thousands of blog droppings about this year's South by Southwest, you'll notice that, as usual, the coverage is littered with an inordinate amount of (oft-faux-) celebrity sightings. Juvenile to report breathlessly, but spend four days in a small land area with a very high concentration of (arguably) notable performers and it's very likely that you'll be drunk, spot Diplo shirtless in the crowd of a Dark Meat show, and find yourself reflexively taking a picture. This was why Al Gore invented the Internet, right?
