"...The occasion was the 2008 convention of the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies, a now-venerable organization of about 125 weeklies akin from across the country and including a few in Canada (www.aan.org). The papers range from independent, news-heavy warhorses like the Chronicle and The San Francisco Bay Guardian to quality fledgling upstarts like the Jackson Free Press (Mississippi) – four small newcomers crossed into membership during the meeting, with several more standing in line...."
"...Dear Editor, I am writing to you in defense of the recently released ATX Underground Compilation: Concrete Volume One, which received a very lackluster review in the Friday, May 16 edition of The Austin Chronicle [“Texas Platters,” Music]. Your writer Austin Powell complains that the compilation is "masochistic and monolithic" and says, "there is nothing [on] here that sounds … remotely new or exciting." Everyone is entitled to her/his opinion, of course, but it seems to me that if you are going to review a compilation of 18 bands, perhaps a half-sentence describing the different tracks specifically, both high and low points, might be more of a fair review than the sweeping generalizations mentioned by Mr. Powell in the above paragraph. And, since later on in the review Mr..."

"...Sure, it's important to have some experience and institutional memory, but right now, I think, it's even more important to have a fresh perspective. I too have become part of the furniture, which is not a bad place to be for me, but which I suspect will only make me less able to occupy this role as a chronicler of change..."

"...Austin Chronicle: Well, I never thought I'd have to think about the George Clooney/Nicole Kidman 1997 film The Peacemaker ever again, but here we are. Your use of recontextualizing old film trailers and videos while inserting these discourses on various topics makes for a pretty heady and entertaining brew in "Love and the Epiphanists." How did this epic come about?..."

"...Garza pointed to her childhood in San Antonio, where Spurs fandom stretched across class lines, and Casar recalled PTA meetings where parents urged him to help bring an MLS team to town so their children could feel the impact of living in a city with a professional sports team.
