True Story time. When I was younger with hair and hope in my eyes, I played at the SXSW festival. At an after show party I asked a delightful young lady where I might find the bathroom. After she kindly pointed me in the right direction she pulled me aside and remarked, “You know you’re gunna get sooo much p*ssy with that accent?” Stunned into a corner I flustered some words of gratitude before doing something that I’ve long since regretted. I ran away. Utterly snookered as to what to do or say, in my blithering British panic I simply left. Maybe it was just an observation and not an invitation to do some horizontal jogging in the back of the tour bus. But we’ll never know. Anyway, fascinating place Texas. Here, in no discernible order, are some of the top models and some interesting facts you probably already knew.
