"...Arthur Bradford is either a master of the absurd or a debut author determined to turn book critics everywhere into tongue-tied nincompoops. Dogwalker (Knopf, $20), his collection of beguiling stories, is impossible to explicate -- with a straight face, anyway..."
"...There was a moment during the filming of MTV's new show How's Your News? when Arthur Bradford, the co-creator of the series and a graduate of UT's Michener Center for Writers, wasn't exactly enjoying himself. It was at the Grammy Awards, on the red carpet..."
"...D: Arthur Bradford (Video, 82 min.)..."
"...Directed by Matt Wolf (Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell) and based on punk biographer Jon Savage’s 2007 book Teenage: The Creation of Youth 1875-1945, this is an artistic consideration of the conceptualization of the teenager – as a distinct period in life, and as a significant social and political influencer. If that sentence put you to sleep, snap back to attention: Teenage is no lecture, and the truer analogies – the dear-diary confessional, rebellious rock, angsty poetry – are all adolescent-approved. (Strengthening the case: Bradford Cox of Deerhunter and Atlas Sound composed the score.)..."
"...Former Austinite and SXSW Film award-winner George Ratliff (Plutonium Circus) was represented in the festival by his new documentary Hell House, a stirring investigation of a Halloween spookhouse annually sponsored by an evangelical Christian church in Dallas. Other SXSW favorites from this year's festival were also screened in Toronto: Bradley Beesley's award-winning Okie Noodling and Michener Center alum Arthur Bradford's unconventional documentary How's Your News? (Coincidentally, the multitalented Bradford will be in Austin this week promoting his new book, Dogwalker..."
"...I'd like to thank Arthur Bradford and the Chronicle for the thoughtful and timely feature story on Lars Eighner ("The Rest of His Days," Vol.17, No.12). Bradford expressed an intelligent sense of Lars' complicated and human situation, without special pleading, but with a real sense of a writer's importance to a community with a claim to an artistic tradition...."
"...She's still accessioning the books under lock and key, which is why you shouldn't expect to see the books just yet. On May 16 at Barnes & Noble Westlake, 2-4pm, some of the books will appear alongside local literati like Carolyn Osborne, Robin Bradford, and Arthur Bradford, all past O..."

"...The great thing about McSweeney's Books is that Eggers has found writers who, although they may cover the same ground he has, or have a very similar sense of humor, are inventive enough that the fame of their publisher doesn't overshadow them. McSweeney's authors Lawrence Krauser and Neal Pollack and McSweeney's contributor Arthur Bradford will be at BookPeople on Wednesday, March 14, at 7pm..."
"...Moreno makes due with his condition, hardly even acknowledging it as he focuses on his own active, humor-filled pursuits. In the same spirit that marks former Austinite Arthur Bradford's remarkable How's Your News? (apparently still in limbo despite Trey Parker and Matt Stone's involvement), Graves refuses to coddle his friend's disability, instead supporting him wherever possible..."
"...After the panel, Pierson and Stone screened a test cut of former Austinite Arthur Bradford's How's Your News? at the Alamo Drafthouse...."

"...He'll pay us all back with a good story in the end. Arthur Bradford is a published short-story writer living in Austin..."
"...He happily brags that four students have signed book contracts in the last year. Fiction writer Arthur Bradford won a 1997 O.Henry Award for his story "Catface." Joseph Skibell, a once-struggling screenwriter who enrolled in the program as a playwright, had an epiphany during a fiction workshop with visiting writer Christopher Tilghman, and now has a major book deal with Algonquin of Chapel Hill...."
"...HACKERSD: Iain Softley; with Johnny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, Fisher Stevens, Jesse Bradford, Matthew Lillard, Laurence Mason, Renoly Santiago, Wendell Pierce, Alberta Watson, Lorraine Bracco, Penn Jillette. Hackers is an afterschool special for the X-Generation. The earlier years Softley (Backbeat) spent in the video trenches serve him well here, allowing Hackers to rise above the level of sub-mediocrity into the realm of truly inspired, insipid eye (and ear) candy..."
"...HACKERSD: Iain Softley; with Jonny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, Fisher Stevens, Jesse Bradford, Laurence Mason, Renoly Santiago, Lorraine Bracco. Are we tired of the phrase "cyberpunk thriller" yet? United Artists isn't..."

"...Arriving in New York from California in 1975, Murray wasted little time in making his presence known. The free-blowing, experimental "loft scene" was in full swing and the Oakland-born saxophonist came to town fully prepared to join the fracas, having already played and studied with the likes of former Austin "free" trumpeter Bobby Bradford and saxman Arthur Blythe...."
