The Box
Donnie Darko director Richard Kelly goes for full-fledged suspense in this studio thriller.
Film Review  November 13, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, Frank Langella, Sam Oz Stone, Gillian Jacobs and James Rebhorn. Based very loosely on a short story by original Twilight Zone scribe Richard Matheson, The Box is a convoluted and capricious morality tale that cobbles together sci-fi, absent body parts, NASA, Sartre, and Cameron Diaz into a not-altogether-functional mix that is nevertheless creepy on its own terms..."

Box Sets/Reissues
The Disco Box
Music Story  April 8, 1999
"...More book than box per se, The Disco Box, compiled by Billboard and A&R veteran Brian Chin, is a 4-CD, 60-page tribute to the dancing queen. According to its producer, it also purports to "illuminate and document disco's other two elements: the music and the DJs." Huh? The haphazard, non-linear liner notes attempt to tell the real story of the club and DJ culture of the Seventies ooh-ooh dance scene, but succeed only at confounding anyone bothering to read the editor's nightmare..."

Monster in a Box
By now, we know the drill. One lone man, on a stage, behind a table, with open notebook, spare set and sparse music by Laurie Anderson. The man is Spalding...
Film Review  June 12, 1992, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...It's an amazing thing to witness one person speaking for 90 minutes and holding an audience with few props other than his voice, gestures, synaptic wanderings, comic sense and narrative timing. In Monster in a Box, Gray manages to draw on these same talents to create a self-invented space that welcomes the audience in while imposing his own perceptions on their experience..."

How the Caja China Roasting Box Got Its Nicknames
Hot box cooking method delivers delectable pork
DAILY Food  June 25, 2013, by Mick Vann
"...If you've ever spent the weekend in a small town in Louisiana, you probably observed someone using what is referred to as a "Cajun microwave." It's a rectangular wooden or metal box with a tight fitting lid. Smoke and the mouthwatering aroma of roasting pork were probably pouring out...."

Box of Moonlight
Al Fountain (Turturro) is a humorless, uptight prig. He's a man who's not happy being who he is but he's also incapable of changing his behavior, and this, too, makes...
Film Review  September 19, 1997, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...When Al's out-of-town job assignment is temporarily shut down, instead of going back home to his family Al impulsively rents a car and goes off in search of a lake in the area that he remembers having visited as a child (and also presumably remembers once having experienced what it was like to have fun). It's during this journey that he meets up with the Kid (Rockwell) -- a carefree, modern-day, wood sprite manboy in a coonskin cap, who lives on the land in a gutted-out trailer among a phantasmagoria of detritus, pilfered lawn ornaments and boxes of moonlight..."

Chinese Box
In the new movie by Wayne Wang (Chan Is Missing, The Joy Luck Club, Smoke), you can't scratch yourself without knocking elbows against the enigmatic metaphors crowding in on all...
Film Review  May 15, 1998, by Russell Smith
"...Starting with the portentous title, the complex political issues of Hong Kong's transfer from British to Chinese rule are variously symbolized by hacked-open fish with hearts still beating, a jilted and disfigured young woman, and a pathetic dog who amuses his master by running to exhaustion on a treadmill. Unfortunately, even for a fan of Wang's earnestly humane cinema, Chinese Box is likely to invoke yet another image: a slightly confused-looking Chinese-American man flinging random buckets full of shit at a movie screen and hoping something sticks..."

A Chinese Odyssey Part One: Pandora's Box

Film Review  May 19, 1995, by Joey O'Bryan
"...Wildly ambitious and structurally frustrating, yet quite funny and entertaining, Jeff Lau's first film since the disappointing Chow Yun Fat vehicle Treasure Hunt is also his best since his absurd 1993 masterpiece Eagle Shooting Heroes. And while this two-part epic (Pandora's Box, the first installment, plays this weekend; the second film, Cinderella, comes in two weeks) never quite achieves the relentlessly inventive comic momentum of Eagle Shooting Heroes, A Chinese Odyssey: Pandora's Box does manage to surpass it in terms of sheer imagination and fantasy..."

Billy Bragg
In Box
Music Review  August 25, 2006, by Marc Savlov
"..."Difficult" third album Talking With the Tax Man About Poetry (1986) found all this hooligan-hollering backed for the first time by a band, which netted Bragg the lump-in-the-throat poignancy of "Levi Stubbs' Tears" and the wry, cold-war witticism of "Help Save the Youth of America," as well as the bracing a cappella anthem "Hold the Fort." Only Volume 1's DVDs fail to inflame either heart or head, despite historical performances such as Bragg playing a schoolroom in Sandinistan Nicaragua. Ultimately the box would have benefited from a more comprehensive set of liner notes and visual ephemera..."

Herbie Hancock
Music Story  December 11, 1998
"...Even if Hancock lacks (or simply doesn't aspire to) his mentor Miles' odd negative charisma, he has traced a similarly jagged line through jazz history for nearly 40 years. This 6-CD box set captures a few of the more important zigs and zags along the way, as well as making clear the knack for blending tradition and innovation he has maintained through all the changes..."

Getting Outside the Box
Will City Council decide to give job applicants with criminal records a "fair chance"?
News Story  October 8, 2015, by Amy Kamp
"...Despite that, employers can get into trouble with the federal government for discriminating solely on the basis of a criminal record, if that discrimination both "significantly disadvantage[s]" people of a specific race, national origin, or other protected category, and "do[es] not help the employer accurately decide if the person is likely to be a responsible, reliable, or safe employee." But that rule is hard to enforce. An employer could get in trouble for refusing to consider all applications with checked criminal history boxes, but they're allowed to decide that they don't want to hire any particular person on the basis of their criminal record..."

Activist groups beg to differ with the city's big-box report
News Story  October 15, 2004, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Almost a year ago, when activists convinced a City Council buffeted by Lowe's and Wal-Mart to ask for a study of the impact of big-box retail, it seemed clear what such a study would conclude: that big boxes harm local independent business – a species whose health and welfare is a prime focus of City Hall policy – and cost their host communities more than they return in tax revenue. It took until June for the study, commissioned from Jon Hockenyos of Texas Perspectives and Scott Polikov of Gateway Planning Group, to appear at City Hall, by which time the groups who'd sought it – including Liveable City, Austin Full Circle, and the Austin Independent Business Alliance – were no longer surprised that it came to quite different conclusions...."

Austin @ Large: The Big-Box Big Deal
Little things mean a lot, but design standards aren't simply superficial
News Column  April 2, 2004, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...While you were drinking, listening to the hot Aussie bands, and/or watching basketball, hardier souls than you have spent Mad March cogitating over big-box retail and its discontents. City staffers, consultants, boards and commissions, stakeholder groups, and the other Oompa Loompas appear to be heading for the homestretch, and City Hall should be able to articulate a strategy for combating commercial sprawl and its resulting environmental, economic, and architectural damage soon, before its attentions get fully consumed (again) by the city's fiscal and budgetary problems...."

Big-Box Ban Bollixes Up Lowe's Plans
The City Council's moratorium slows down the hardware giant's settlement deal
News Story  October 31, 2003, by Amy Smith
"...A 45-day moratorium on big-box retail projects over the Edwards Aquifer has thrown a monkey wrench into Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse's hook-or-by-crook development efforts. Despite the City Council's near unanimous agreement on the temporary ban, lawyers and lobbyists for Lowe's had hoped council members would deliver a vote today (Thursday) on an offer they couldn't refuse: a 162,000-square-foot store over the aquifer -- or else...."

"...This particular dispute is the least publicized of the three big-box battles currently playing out south of Ben White. More energy has gone into trying to prevent two super-stores from being built on top of the increasingly endangered Edwards Aquifer -- another proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter at MoPac and Slaughter and a Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse on Brodie Lane in Sunset Valley -- than it has to a proposed development in the preferred growth corridor along I-35...."

"...Long before he became Daptone Records' leading man and the "Screaming Eagle of Soul," Charles Bradley doubled as Black Velvet, a James Brown impersonator performing in a Brooklyn night club. Released on what would have been his 70th birthday, the Black Velvet Deluxe Box pays loving tribute in eulogizing the late, great soul singer, who died last year..."

"...The perfect Richard Thompson box set would feature his beginnings with pioneering British folk band Fairport Convention, his work as a sideman with artists like Sandy Denny, then an overview of his solo work, including a healthy helping of his ex-wife Linda. It would stress his uncommon talents as a guitarist and songwriter by spotlighting his studio albums, but also contain some marvelous live performances, with rarities to accent Thompson's ability to entertain..."

Concentrating exclusively on 1956, his first year with RCA and one in which he sold 10 million singles, 3 million EPs, and 800,000 albums, it's exhaustive, fascinating, and probably just for the obsessive..."

"...Dear Editor, Efforts to facilitate traffic flow in Oak Hill (April 20, p.10) [“Postmarks”] and on MoPac (p.19) [“MoPac Expansion Update,” News] are both doomed due to planners’ failure to think outside the box. The intellectual box in which they find themselves is the belief that transportation solutions lie in maintaining existing lanes devoted to auto traffic and then adding either more lanes, in the case of MoPac, or in the case of Oak Hill, waiting for commuter rail. Fortunately for Mexico City, traffic planners there thought outside the box and realized that devoting eight lanes to autos on their major north-south arterial, Avenida Insugentes, was only resulting in ever-longer traffic jams..."
