"...Matt Hislope and Josh Meyer of Rubber Repertory had been thrilled just to have Wallace Shawn give his blessing to their production of his notoriously sexual 1975 play, A Thought in Three Parts. Then Wally came to town..."
"...1) A Thought in Three Parts (Rubber Repertory) This unashamedly obscene, relatively old Wallace Shawn script was considered by many to be unstageable, until Austin's Rubber Rep took it on. Challenging? You betcha..."
"...3) A Thought in Three Parts (Rubber Repertory) Rubber Rep brought Wallace Shawn's previously "untouchable" play from the Seventies – featuring a middle section with more extreme sexual hijinks than a "Ron Jeremy Live at Fuckfest '82" highlights reel – to the stage fully realized, treating all parts of the triptych with unerring accuracy. Funniest goddamn thing I've seen in years, and it reportedly brought playwright Shawn (in town to attend the opening) to tears with its excellence...."
"...She was this pretzel. I was wondering what that part was about because it was so different from the other parts..."
"...No, let's instead sit down at a coffeehouse with the author and a few other local literati and have a gabfest about it. Many voices, many opinions, much arcane information explained or hinted at – kind of like parts of the book itself, right?..."
"...Kennan's towering musical gifts had a way of humbling his students -- to illustrate a musical point, he often would open up a full orchestral score at the piano and play it up to speed, transposing the clarinet, horn, and trumpet parts on the fly -- but the man was humble himself, and in an often divided faculty, he played the peacemaker...."
"..."I was terrified," says Hardy. "It took me a tour to learn the parts, and it took me another tour to feel like I was in the group because they play so weird and different..."
"...AC: How much was a song like “Golden Age of Leather” completed before the band began working on it, because there’s so many moving parts to it...."
"...Austin Chronicle: I've never been to Paris, but reading this book made me want to go. I've read other books that are set in Paris or have parts that touch Paris, but they've never made me really want to go..."
"...Brenner: Are there parts of The Sculptor, whether intentionally or otherwise, that sort of provide examples of your observations and theories from Understanding Comics?..."
"...In the letter, he complained that, “Travis County has a population of 1,024,266, enough to serve as the anchor of a complete State Board of Education district without dividing the county. Instead, the proposed map cuts the county in two parts for no apparent reason.”..."
"...KG: I’m a little nervous about things getting pulled out of context, like in the press. Like, The Guardian ran some “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Kim Gordon”-type list, which surprised me for them, and of course they only pulled the really gossipy parts..."
"...3) By providing evidence of extreme craft, of hours upon hours upon days and weeks and months spent in skilled efforts to render, finally, the artist’s vision in corporeal form. We don’t especially like Thomas Edison in these parts (because Tesla), but that thing he supposedly said about “10% inspiration and 90% perspiration” really resonates inside our handiwork hearts...."
"...Those include the northern area District 11-Palestine (Staples' now-open and traditionally Democratic seat), where Democrat Hopson is battling Republican bank vice-president Woodard; the mid-East Texas District 9-Nacogdoches, where far-right Republican incumbent Wayne Christian is being strongly challenged by Nacogdoches County Sheriff Joe Evans; and the southern District 18-Livingston, where Democratic incumbent Dan Ellis is once again facing a well-funded Republican challenger, Ben Bius. (The mostly rural Senate District 3 is spread north and south across East Texas, including all or parts of 17 counties, from just outside Tyler to the edge of Beaumont..."

"...Christ. Had I ruined the show by noodling beyond my designated parts?..."
"...How did that happen? After a 10-year career in films, including parts in The Wild Life and The Chocolate War and several subsequent years of painful bottom-scraping, Mitchell-Smith came to realize that his passion and talents might lie beyond panties-on-the-head comedy. "One of my first memories is looking at a little knight that I have and thinking, 'This is the neatest thing I own in the world,'" he says..."
"...Terry Galloway, creator of Jake Ratchett, Short Detective, for Esther's Follies, "married" us, reading from my romance novels. She made George vow to "fondle" all appropriate parts and me to promise to surrender to the "whirling vortex of desire" and for both of us to fill all "aching chasms." A surprise wedding -- it was a great, great evening...."
"...They're working in a media landscape light-years removed from the offset printing presses of their youth. While the original Rag would be lucky to sell 15,000 copies on Austin street corners, the 3-year-old Rag Blog attracts 45,000 unique visitors a month, drawing comments from Russia, Japan, and all parts of the globe..."
"...is by no means the first documentary to tackle the topic, either – an increasing number of similarly themed efforts have been making the film fest rounds, including The Future of Food, Super Size Me, The Price of Sugar, and King Corn. But while each of those focuses on particular parts of a broken system, Food, Inc..."
"...No, that doesn't mean that it's easy. But it does appear to be much easier than in other parts of the country..."
"...If you were above that, which Brandon was – his ground floor is at five, but he's elevated so he has a house on stilts, and Lyda Ann's house is in the inner core of the city, which was higher – [then you fared better]. Tying this into her comments earlier, not only was there a Seawall, but there was a grade raising [mandated after the 1900 storm, which makes parts of the island higher than others]..."
"...First, no bodies are buried above one another, he says, despite the fact that the practice is legal in Texas. (At least one row of the cemetery, however, is dedicated to random body parts..."
"...This is the ebb and flow of Silva: insatiable curiosity that resolves into a solution. She's equal parts pragmatism and whimsy..."
"...The Ghost Gunner may use old technology, but it truly is the first product of its kind: a hands-free machine made to produce the most coveted piece of a gun. Other parts – the stock, sight, and barrel, for example – can be purchased online with a credit card..."
"...Austin's animal loving community worked to weave no-kill into the city culture. But there were also questions in the early stages of no-kill from parts of the animal welfare community who remain skeptical of the city's policy to this day..."

"...When talking about Captain Marvel's success, he always made it clear that he wrote for Beck. Visually, Beck was simply a great storyteller; he had an outstanding story sense and would often change the scripts that Otto sent him to improve the narrative flow or eliminate or revise the weaker parts...."

"..."Despite all the planning we have done and continue to do, it sometimes still feels like we're making it up as we go," adds Jerkins. "It's all a surprise, and that is equal parts invigorating and nerve-racking."..."
"...It changed my life for the better and allowed me to slay a demon in front of a public audience." On working with Meyer, Loehlin said, "The interesting thing about Macbeth is that he is a soldier who has the imagination of a poet, and Johnny certainly fit the bill in both of those categories. I had a lot of reasons for wanting to see him in that role – his interest in verse, his leadership, his experience at Winedale the previous summer, and some of the parts he had taken then – but certainly his military service provided him with one angle of approach to the character that other students wouldn't have had..."
"...Wong: It's Taiwanese Mandarin-speaking, but I would say, um, half of them? So half of them are originally from various parts of East Asia, I guess. And, again, that's an example – like the Vietnamese community would have their own thing that's pretty much all the Vietnamese people...."
"...I'm now writing another book with a 20-year-old Malawian kid who builds windmills out of old tractor parts and blue-gum trees and powers his village. It's inspirational and hopeful, and exactly the remedy I needed after Congo...."
"...No one name sums up this three-canyon region; the inhabitants identify themselves with whichever canyon they live in and with the Hill Country in general. It includes the counties of Real, Bandera, and parts of Edwards, Uvalde, and Kerr..."
"...It's a pretty safe place to learn from your mistakes, and that's incredibly valuable. I think when people come to do theatre here from other parts of the country, they are aware of that in the audience..."
"...Ascher steps through parts of The Shining frame-by-frame, and then backwards, all while the conspiratorial – and often disconcertingly convincing – commentators reveal the obvious to be both ominous and arcane. The effect is akin to watching a quintet of Shining scholars try to out-master each other with a Kubrick's Cube..."
"...But he showed up totally into it and bringing so much. Most of the cast were friends of mine, and I'd written their parts for them, but they just saw him and what he put into it and went, "Yeah, this is it." I'm gonna look back on it and see it as a learning curve that Mike Shannon helped me with..."

And now, another wave of unease has fallen over the community because of the DACA decision and recent ruling from the 5th Circuit reversing certain parts of Garcia's ruling ("Travis County to Comply With All ICE Detainers After 5th Circuit Ruling," Sept..."
"...The astonishing thing about this journey through the eastern United States besides the fact that you can make it in less than two hours without ever leaving your chair is that you're seeing all those landscapes with your ear. George Gershwin, Aaron Copland, and Austin composer Donald Grantham have managed to evoke the distinctive characters of New York City, Appalachia, and the South, respectively, through music, using tools of their trade melody, rhythm, tempo, harmonics, and the like essentially to "map" these parts of our country...."
"...And let's face it: Cabinets and closets have doors for a reason. If your closets and cabinets are spotlessly clean, color-coded and perfectly organized, why would you want to hide them behind closed doors? The truth is, houses, like people, have parts of them that should be kept private--places that are somewhat out of order, or even in complete disarray..."

"...As with Home Entertainment, A Place to Land is less a show than a concert, a gathering. Presented in two parts, the first focuses on five women who live in the past, present, and future of the house, utilizing music, dance, video, and spoken word, both live and recorded, by Rodriguez, vocalist Suzi Stern, and choreographer Sharon Marroquin..."
"...And she stopped being able to cope with her life at all. Her writing was a way of dealing with different parts of her personality, an outlet for her individuality." She pauses to consider the question again..."
"...Yet the Mikeskas have nevertheless carved a comfortable niche for themselves in the pantheon of Texas barbecue all-stars. All five of Rudy Mikeska's brothers have opened barbecue joints of their own in other parts of Texas..."
"..."The purpose of security was to keep people out of the building, not for the purpose of protecting stuff," she says. Neimann points out that because the building was so destroyed, allowing renters to retrieve their belongings without first assessing which parts of the building were safe to enter would have risked lives...."
"...But even after construction wraps, the Yard will maintain an industrial vibe. "All these buildings have always had people in there making motorcycle parts, buses ....."
"...In any case, we receive 200,000 people passing through this building a year, climbing the stairs or using one of the two elevators," which have become increasingly difficult to maintain. "We can't order parts for them anymore; they have to be specially fabricated."..."
