"...Chronicle art director emeritus Taylor Holland just tipped us to the latest bright idea for Austin's traffic problems: designer Michael McDaniel's Gondola's 'R' Us. Don't know what to make of it, but McDaniel himself says, “In my experience, products and concepts without an existing client are generally more difficult and take longer to realize.”..."
"...Ultimately, whether the protesters were induced or whether the cops merely reacted to the already planned use of the devices will be up to a jury to decide. Garza's attorney Greg Gladden said in an email to the Chronicle that he is still reviewing the documents turned over last week..."
"...Not even the Austin Chronicle's mighty Hot Sauce Festival can support the Capital Area Food Bank all by its annual Scoville-busting self. I mean, don't even, y'know? That's why all manner of good citizens pitch in – day in and day out, especially now with colder weather and the holidays coming – to help provide sustenance to those in need...."
"...New "Golden Boot" categories this year include Rising Stars, Trailblazers, and Mash-Up Teams. The 2012 Advisory Board and Host Committee comprised of Allen Ruiz, Anne Marie Beard, Chad Harlan, Elizabeth Gibson, Eve Nicols, Justin Brown, Kendra Scott, Lance Avery Morgan, Linda Asaf, Lisa Brooks, Rochelle Rae, Sandra Antoun, and The Chronicle's own Stephen Moser will select award winners from a group of publicly nominated candidates...."
"...If you want something truly original, then this may be your chance to get hold of a new piece by Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers creator, Longhorn and Chronicle cover artist Gilbert Shelton. He'll be drawing a new piece for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund in a master session on Thursday, and that will go on auction at the CBLDF live art auction at 7:30pm on Saturday in the Sapphire Room at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront...."

"...We'll have more from Hersh in an upcoming issue of the Chronicle...."
"...In sum, we're well on our way once again to a showdown between the perfect and the good. I won't say which is which (the Chronicle has endorsed SMDs all six previous times, which shows you the power of the liberal media), but the 10-2-1 alternative only arose when it was absolutely clear that the committee would not swallow any other hybrid: neither 8-4-1, nor Mayor Lee Leffingwell's original suggestion of 6-2-1, nor any variations thereof...."

"...Austin Chronicle: How is it that the World Horror Convention happens to be taking place in Austin this year, and how did you guys get involved with it? Nate Southard: We’d both been attending the annual convention for a while – I started going back in 2006, Lee started going before that. And we'd both seen good conventions and bad conventions..."
"...Standing Waves, the Skunks, Kathy McCarty, Daniel Johnston, the Gourds, Poi Twang, and the Crack Pipes – all at Antone's on Wednesday for The Austin Chronicle Music Anthology release party. Quite the bargain, 30 years of local music in one night...."
"...All this said, there is no reason to feel confident that a change the mayor and the whole council are now said to support – and one that the Chronicle has regularly endorsed – has any better chance of passing this time than it did the last six. In late 2007, when I asked the Charter Revision Committee chair, Mayor Emeritus Gus Garcia, how the latest effort was going, he said Public Apathy seemed to be winning the day – five public meetings had elicited only seven unique witnesses..."

"...This invoking of the familiar-within-the-alien-within-the-familiar isn't an unusual trope for Kang. As he said in a Chronicle interview (see "Facing the Media," March 25, 2005): "When I was in Korea, I was watching all the Hollywood movies, so I had a certain kind of imagination about Americans and American culture..."

"...Who happened to stop by in the TARDIS, he might have wondered, "Haven't I been here several times before?" – but the physical assembly of teams on the dais. Speaking for the Austin Water Utility (along with Director Greg Meszaros and a brace of water wonks) was none other than former City Council member (and former Austin Chronicle politics editor) Daryl Slusher, once a standard-bearer of the local green revolution, now an AWU vice president and politically prominent defender of the need to build WTP4...."
"...Jill also finds the time to do some co-packing for other companies, though she's quick to say: "We get calls pretty regularly from folks looking for a co-packer, but I tell them they need to have their product ready to go. I don't have time to develop recipes for other people." These days, she's working with a company called Chile Beach Jams, as well as packing spicy jellies for perennial Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival winner Ana's Salsa..."
"...Rather than provide the public document, city attorneys requested an advisory opinion from the state attorney general, whose office responded that the 17-year-old material could be withheld as "private" ("highly intimate and embarrassing") and "not of legitimate concern to the public." That opinion was wrong on both the facts and the law, but the city attorneys relied on it and convinced a judge to support their discretion. Thanks to the Chronicle's attorney, Pete Kennedy of Graves Dougherty, the 3rd Court of Appeals found the arguments of the city, the A.G., and the hearing judge unpersuasive and ordered the report released..."
"...New to them, maybe: We've already known about Bob Byington for years. His new film, Harmony and Me, which was shot locally and stars Bishop Allen frontman Justin Rice, was announced yesterday as part of this year's slate (an honor, we presume, which runs a very close second to winning the Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest, which Bob did back in 2005.)..."
"...Author, creative-writing teacher, NPR commentator, and former Austin Chronicle contributor Marion Winik returns to this year's Texas Book Festival with her new nonfiction collection, The Glen Rock Book of the Dead, a collection of remembrances of the dearly departed who touched Winik's life, directly or otherwise. The resulting document is not only an autobiography; it is a gentle attempt to recover Winik's loved ones from the ravages of time and memory while also serving as an account of late-20th century life told through the lens of an archive of death, an archive that forced Winik to revisit a number of deeply profound and intimate relationships...."

I know you couldn't all have been at Precinct 135 (by popular acclaim, of course, the very best precinct in town), but it sure seemed like it..."

"...Dear Editor, Speaking of "weird," did anyone else notice that the most prominent sponsor of the Keep Austin Weird Festival and 5K was AT&T? My understanding of the "Keep Austin Weird" concept was the support and promotion of local businesses like RunTex, Amy's, The Austin Chronicle, and Waterloo, etc. If that's the case, why was AT&T involved so conspicuously? Obviously it had a lot to do with their generous financial support, but doesn't it seem glaringly against the spirit of this event?..."
"...Dear Editor, Big thanks to The Austin Chronicle, Wayne Alan Brenner, and Robert Faires for supporting Get Up and Austin Improv ["Get Up: How funky and strong is their fight," Arts, June 15]. The quality and the depth of improv in Austin is one of the best-kept secrets in town..."

"...The early and mid-Nineties saw the arrival of Frontera Productions, Salvage Vanguard Theater, Physical Plant, the Public Domain, root wy'mn, and the Rude Mechanicals, among others, and their creative daring and irreverence and imagination did indeed give local stages a jolt. In 1998, the Chronicle published "A Survey of Austin's Rebel Theatre Scene" profiling these companies, all of which seemed poised on the edge of success..."
"...In any case, we will have lost the knowledge and input and voice of an experienced politician and citizen, who undoubtedly has much to add to the public discussion. "The '97 ordinance makes it very difficult to raise money independently of the PACs, and then the failure of the local media including the Statesman, the Chronicle, and television to really engage the campaign process early enough, make it difficult to get your message out without that money," Uribe told me..."
