"...In portraying the character of Matt Grabowski, Denniston uses the audience's preconceived notions about sexual politics to his advantage, both humorously and otherwise. Butch Camp follows the somewhat meek Grabowski as he struggles to assert himself in a world of crass, boisterous breeders..."
"...Being unveiled for the first time is the 2014 “Butch Feelings” calendar. Created by Schindler, along with her friends and Homophoto Club cohorts, Gretchen Phillips and Deb Norris, the calendar is an ode to Austin’s queer grrrl community...."
"...Obviously the panel who came up with The Top 15 Hottest Butches on AfterEllen has never been to Texas. We'll give them No..."
"...Did you see Butch? He was just here," said Zenna through the whiny strains of an acoustic guitar coming from the tape deck behind the bar and the blue haze of a hand-rolled cigarette. "You should meet him, he's a wonderful guy..."
"...In 1997, the year Butch Hancock released his first of only two solo albums since then, You Coulda Walked Around the World, my onetime $105-a-month Hyde Park abode dilapidated into a pile worth being sold and turned – same as a recent romance. A year or two later, in a newly mortgaged house I'd never envisioned, You Coulda Walked Around the World soothed me time and again..."
"...What if Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid hadn't died at the end of George Roy Hill's genre-redefining 1969 classic, but instead lived on – one of them, anyway – in the Bolivian backcountry? That's the intriguing and grittily realized premise of Mateo Gil's film, an elegiac take on the great American Western that sees Butch living to a ripe old age (under the alias James Blackthorn), smoking cheroots and horse-ranching his way to a potentially far more peaceful ending than the fusillade of Bolivian army lead envisioned by Hill and history...."
"...Butch Hancock lets out a laugh at the 2-inch thick, 700-page (abridged) literary classic thrown down on a small wooden table in the Threadgill's World Headquarters beer garden, not yet opened at 10am one balmy Friday...."
"...Laura introduces Alike to the bar scene and teaches the neophyte how to dress and hit on women. But the strict butch-and-femme profiles that dominate the club scene prove uncomfortable for Alike, who identifies with neither role and doesn’t yet know that she needn’t shoehorn herself into things that don’t fit..."
"...Butch Hancock’s winter tour of Texas equaled exactly two concerts this past weekend. Which is probably for the best..."
"...His nervy debut, Brick, was a high school suburban noir: Dashiell Hammett in the mouths of babes and a house of cards fixed to tumble at the first strong wind (surprise: it never did). His follow-up, a con-man caper with the spiritual prints of Paper Moon, Butch Cassidy, and Boris and Natasha, isn’t as strenuously cerebral as Brick – still, gold stars for anybody who catches the filmmaker’s references to Joyce and Homer – nor does it, in the end, altogether hang together..."
"...3: Broody bride sees attractive stranger at the wedding, questions the possibility of Love at First Sight. The wrinkle here is that the attractive stranger is Luce (Headey), the soft-butch florist..."
"...Hilarity and heartbreak ensue. Levinson is parsing familiar material here, so much so that its not going too far to say this is a “reimagining” of George Roy Hill's iconic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid..."
"...The characters do not even possess names. The movie begins as we're introduced to a butch woman we come only to know as the Painter (de la Boulaye)..."
"...Others who view The Way of the Gun as a Tarantino-esque knockoff are unlikely to discover the originality of this story's unremitting bad guys. Phillippe and Del Toro play opportunistic criminals named Parker and Longbaugh (the real surnames of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), who overhear a conversation about a nine-months-pregnant surrogate mother (Juliette Lewis)..."
"...Roosevelt High (an example of the droll throwaway humor with which the script is laced) where basketball coach/math teacher Dinah Groshardt and secretary Carly Lumkin both labor. Dinah (Nelson) is a no-nonsense, rather butch woman whose only obvious passion is for hoops..."
"...Director Donner made his name with action films, and it shows: maybe the only things this film does take deadly serious are its back-to-back stunts. Certainly, much of the movie's wit and style stem from screenwriter William Goldman, who won an Academy Award in 1969 for his Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid script..."
"...Their testimonies point out many of the implicit differences due to class, age and familial background. Some critique the butch/femme role-playing of the period, some speak of the intolerance suffered, some tell of police raids, most recount their comings out..."
"...To the movie's credit, Moore's role, though a transparent move to add some female presence, refrains from becoming a love story subplot. A Few Good Men is a decidedly butch melodrama and the performances reflect that intensity..."
"...However, Vickie and the city of New York confront him with a lot to accept. To maintain her cozy bourgeois fantasy, Vickie asks her flamingly gay roommate to “act butch” and pose as her husband.This ploy meets with very limited success..."
"...Add to this highly charged picture of racial relations a further layer of sexual politics. Chris, a mulatto who is pretty boy straight, and Caz, who is gay butch, have been best friends since childhood and though the sexual tensions between them are minimal yet potent, the politics of difference surround them everywhere..."
"...Director Scott here reveals a heretofore undisclosed talent for comic timing and, of equal surprise, keeps his propensity for power-packed imagery (Blade Runner, Alien, Black Rain) in check and at the service of the story. Thelma & Louise is going to be compared to a lot of things before its run its through: a female road movie, a women's buddy/adventure film, a female Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid..."
"...Jimmie Dale Gilmore, center, and Butch Hancock, stage right, step forward into amplification, and with Ely, boom the campfire chorus of "Right Where I Belong."..."
"...(Well, not anymore. But 25 years ago, when I met Butch Hancock, I weighed about 125 pounds, really skinny.) It was the sense I had of him..."
"...Shot in and around Austin last summer (for all two of you who didn't already know), Eastwood's first film since the Oscar-sweeping Unforgiven is a taut, occasionally touching chase film that pits prison escapee/kidnapper Costner against Texas Ranger Eastwood in 1963 Texas. Having broken free from the Huntsville pen along with a morally bankrupt crony, Butch Haynes (Costner) kidnaps young Philip Perry (Lowther) during a botched attempt at car theft..."
"...She became panicky and began rubbing at the mark with her thumb. Then Wilford Brimley and his butch little female troll showed up at least it looked like Wilford Brimley, but we'll just call them not-Wilford and Butch..."
"...A recent scenario involves a large woman of low self-esteem and uncertain appeal (we'll call her "Baby") who suspects that her cracker boyfriend (we'll call him "Bubba") is cheating on her. She allowed Cheaters to place a camera in the home that she shares with a female roommate (we'll call her "Butch," a tough-as-nails looking creature, whom we're surprised to find has any interest in men at all)..."
"...Near the Troubadour in West Hollywood -- a stone's easy throw (if you could find a stone) from a sign announcing the boundary of Beverly Hills -- Butch Hancock peered into a vending machine to take a closer look at a headline in the San Fernando Valley Daily News. Something about more suffering in Afghanistan..."
"...Jesse Taylor (may he rest in peace) played his last hometown gig the night after. Many of the bunch we call "14th Street" showed up for the screening, and it was weird, it was flat-out weird to see that old brick house on 14th and Avenue W up there on the big screen with its most famous residents Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore..."
"...UPSTAGE: I have been fascinated by the dialogue among gay folks regarding the diversity of the gay "community," particularly the issue of "butch" vs. "fem" guys, and I came across something online that I thought was particularly apropos during Gay Pride..."
"...All of this is set to a background of muddy knickers and ample, heaving bosoms. Scott, like his forbears, steals from the best -- there are elements of everything from Bonnie and Clyde to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid on display here, usually to good visual effect (if not much else)..."
"...If I Was a Highway is a new collection of essays by Ventura, and all but three were originally published in The Austin Chronicle. Released by Texas Tech University Press, the book is punctuated with photographs by one of Ventura's oldest running buddies, singer-songwriter Butch Hancock (including the one pictured here, of Ventura gassing up)..."
"...Butch Hancock and I were the encampment's long-term residents. Others came and went, for as many reasons as there were travelers..."
"...The Top Femme webpage is fairly new to the MySpaceiverse. It's an offshoot of Top Butch. "Top Butch has been profiling Butch Cakes of the Week forever, and I think butch girls are hot," says La Lisa, obviously a fan..."
"...He also doesn't completely fit in with the Lubbock expatriates; unlike Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock et al., he didn't join the mass musician migration to Austin, choosing instead to head west for Los Angeles. He didn't pursue a music career as ardently as they did, either, which leads to the most profound contradiction in Allen's life -- his dual artistic identities..."
"...Names lower on the marquee ended up leaving as much of an impression as the ones on top. Adriel Denae held her own alongside Jones on “Wildflowers,” Butch Walker got high energy on “Even the Losers” and “The Waiting,” and Nashville fireball Ruby Amanfu lit up local guitar hero Charlie Sexton on a rousing rendition of “Honey Bee.” She returned to duet with Willie Nelson’s kid Lukas on “Don’t Come Around Here No More” and played the role of Last Waltz-era Mavis Staples on all-for-one closer “Free Fallin’.”..."
"...It's a cute backstory, and it fits nicely with Henry's present sad state of affairs -- the downturned mouth, the vapid, shuttered gaze. He's old Butch Cassidy, alive to see another day, though not a good one..."
"...Even if audiences, Austin or otherwise, never get a chance to see Small Town Girl, a Joe Sears production put on for invitation-only audiences out at Willie Nelson's place this past weekend, the 51-year-old Ely has nevertheless spent the lion's share of his life tearing up audiences worldwide. Whether accompanied only by an acoustic guitar, paired with fellow Flatlanders Gilmore and Butch Hancock, or more likely, as leader of one of his many hard honky-tonkin' bands, Joe Ely has never delivered one of his Micheneresque tales of Texas with anything less than full, unbridled passion; a firebrand, that Ely, a tornado under the spotlight in the center ring -- a force of nature to be reckoned with, whether he was Down on the Drag, Lord of the Highway, or Live at Liberty Lunch..."
"..."Anybody seen Butch Hancock?" asks singer James Maestro mid-set, eyes shining wryly under the big gray hat. "Everyone we meet is like `oh, yeah, he was just over at the house,' but we still haven't seen him....."
"...Butch Queen Freshen up that lipstick, ladies, these Butch Queens are first-time draggers and they're looking to get lit. Louisianna Purchase hosts, with music by Dylan Does Drag..."
"..."We're getting together in San Fran in a few weeks to play Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival," he says. "We do it every year and that's usually when Butch [Hancock] will play a new song or something will trigger it and we say, 'Yeah let's do it.' Butch and Jimmie [Dale Gilmore] are such strong influences on my writing..."
"...News of the pending sale came Friday, Jan. 10, when longtime owners Butch and Patti Hickman rounded up the bar’s five staffers..."
"...It was those concerns about safety, says APD Assistant Chief Sean Mannix, that prompted APD detective Shannon Dowell to get involved last December in constructing a series of lockboxes eventually used by the eight protesters arrested for wearing them at the Port of Houston. Dowell (known to protesters originally as "Butch") was working undercover within the Occupy Austin movement..."
"...Joe Ely wasn't punk, but his West Texas mojo skewed that way on this rip-roaring collection fueled by guitarist Jesse Taylor with fiery roots fare including Jimmie Dale Gilmore's "Dallas" and Butch Hancock's "Road Hawg." Even the Clash had to ask if they should stay or go. Welcome to the 1980s. Lou Ann BartonOld Enough (1982)..."
"...Butch, Adrienne, their son Rory, and I – during this last cold snap, we drove up to say goodbye...."
"...Even if they seem remorseful, I don't help them through their moment. In solidarity with the unsung butch lesbians who were with the fags and drag queens at the Stonewall Riots in Greenwich Village in 1969, I have been doing my own version of butching it up...."
