"...Some remarkable moments in Texas history are unfairly forgotten, while others end up stuck to the sole of your brand-new kicks, or in your little brother's hair. Austin filmmaker and musician John Paris has spent over a decade working to ensure that the story of his father, Andy Paris, isn't overlooked when it comes time to tally the truly ingenious minds of the 20th century...."
"...Starring: Sienna Miller, Guy Pearce, Shawn Hatosy, Mena Suvari, Jimmy Fallon, Illeana Douglas, Armin Amiri, Beth Grant, Edward Herrman and Hayden Christensen. Who is this generation's It Girl? And does it deserve one? There's an argument to be made for Paris Hilton, whose absurdist antics in the public eye reach up, into, and ultimately beyond the crass cookie jar of pop culture detritus, a persona that pays cheap, brassy coinage to Factory Girl subject Edie Sedgwick while at the same time making Warhol's poor little rich girl seem downright classy by comparison..."
"...Paris sucks. It’s New York City tinted in red wine – très impersonal...."
"...11-20. They’ll play a handful of shows there, including gigs in Paris and Austin’s sister city, Angers..."
"...Two HC category climbs and two category 1. All in all, a tough day in the Pyrenees, but it's going to be these last stages that will determine whether Bradley Wiggins (Britain) will be the first Englishman in yellow, or whether someone else will steal the title away from him mere days away from Paris...."
"...If the murder of Matthew Shepard shocked you as deeply as it did so many around the world, you may find it difficult to believe that more than a decade has passed since that tragic incident occurred. But it has, and that passage of time prompted members of New York's Tectonic Theater Project – whose interviews with the residents of Shepard's hometown formed the basis of their play The Laramie Project – to return to Laramie last year and find out how the town had changed in the years since the murder, to ask, "How do you measure change in a community?" Through new interviews with Matthew's mother, Judy Shepard; with Matthew's murderer, Aaron McKinney, now serving two consecutive life sentences for the crime; and with other Laramie residents, Tectonic's Moisés Kaufman, Leigh Fondakowski, Greg Pierotti, Andy Paris, and Stephen Belber fashioned an epilogue, The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later...."
"...Ladyhawke - Paris is Burning..."
"...As thoughtful as Monk arcing toward minimalism, Jarrett loses Holland on double-bass, but gains Gary Peacock, while retaining cymbal sensation Jack DeJohnette on the kit. The pianist’s Paris-hosted live grunts, growls, and cries pace his gilded hands on Standards Live, “Stella By Starlight” and Rodgers & Hart’s “Falling in Love with Love” both early guarantees..."
"...I keep Patrick Rosal’s collection of frenzied-cool poetry Uprock Headspin Scramble and Dive on the water tank of my toilet, along with A Brief History of Time, an episode of The Paris Review, a few well-worn issues of Austin Monthly, Stuff Magazine, and some decomposing installments of The Sporting News. When scrutinizing the 2008 draft, often between morning bran flakes and lunchtime burrito, it was Rosal’s method, his passion and candor that became insightful for this spring’s college selection process..."
"...THE PROPRIETOR Producer Ismael Merchant takes the director's reins for this Jeanne Moreau vehicle in which she plays a French expatriate novelist who returns from New York to the Paris she left during the Occupation 30 years ago; co-stars include Austin Pendleton, Nell Carter, and Sam Waterston. (Nov..."
"...Directed by Agnes Varda. In Agnes Varda’s achingly poignant reflection on mortality, a young pop singer must kill two hours in Paris awaiting the results of a medical exam that may prove she has cancer..."
"...He liked being the wild guy who ran around, but he wasn't willing to ever give up his family. "Thank God the Reunion Happened"Wise: The first time I remember Sterling treating me with any warmth was after he had been to Paris and the VU had that reunion at the Cartier Foundation in 1991..."
"...Carrey positively thrives in this sort of role; he's inherited the same twisted, everything-and-the-kitchen-sink comic glee that older members of the audience will recall from Robin Williams' glory days. His Riddler is a whirlwind of absurd posturings and fevered, maniacal obsessions; Frank Gorshin's TV portrayal seems pre-Cambrian by comparison..."

"...The knocks: The premise is so contrived, it's difficult to ignore. As Melanie Moretti (Bertinelli) and her gal pals travel to Paris to help Melanie forget her recent divorce, the plane makes an unexpected stop in Cleveland..."
"...On the whole, this season's studio releases appear to be a strong, varied, and interesting lot -- especially in comparison with last year when such end-of-the-year releases as Sling Blade, Shine, and The English Patient helped foster the ill-substantiated notion that 1996 was the "year of the independents." It seems certain that the Hollywood "regulars" will regain their dominance at this year's Academy Awards. The next few weeks will reveal some of the reasons why...."
"...In other words, all post-modern jokes. Taking something as “classical” as Roman columns and colonnades and making them silly is no small feat, and Moore’s iconoclastic efforts are not only recorded as one of the first instances of Postmodernist architectural style, but also became, strangely, the foundation for hotels like the Bellagio and Paris in Las Vegas, and, a little closer to home, the “swank” outlet malls in San Marcos which are modeled to look like buildings in Venice..."
"...GINO SITSON: Born in Cameroon and now calling Paris home, this multi-instrumentalist is cut from the same vocal cloth as Al Jarreau and Bobby McFerrin, but this former student of the Sorbonne also draws inspiration from his Central-West African birthplace. His unique form of mouth music is well represented on his second solo album, Song Zin', on French label Scalen International..."
"...TEMPLO DIEZ: French multi-instrumentalist Pascal Hallibert hopped a train to the Hague to find his Velvet Underground, a sonorous, country-flecked, lo-fi pier-and-beam Palace built on whispers and regrets. Last year's Hoboken was a looong way from Paris..."
