Remembering Chris Holzhaus, fueling the Hickoids
DAILY Music  July 28, 2008, by Margaret Moser
"...Mary’s, a South First-like strip in Sixth Street drag, the music runs non-stop and the party never ends, at least not until closing time.

Arts Story  July 2, 2010, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Chris Jordan, whose mind-blowing "Running the Numbers" exhibition is currently shocking the verticals at the Austin Museum of Art, knows what those numbers would look like. He's depicted what they do look like, in image after wall-sized image, using research and photography and software and a design sense of the caliber more often used to sell you things than to portray the hazardous consequences of reckless consuming...."

Uncle Drew
Kyrie Irving's soda campaign gets a movie spin-off
Film Review  July 6, 2018, by Matthew Monagle

Arts Review  October 17, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...And technology unavailable to the artists of yesteryear is not only being used to make art, but it's being used as the subject of art. In works such as Chris Jordan's large photographs Recycling Yard #6, Seattle, 2004 and Crushed Cars #3, Tacoma, 2004, the artist is training his eye on a mass-production/mass-consumption culture unknown when van Gogh was painting the bridge over the Seine at Asnières...."

Life During Wartime
Todd Solondz revisits the family from his film Happiness, but the characters are all played by different actors, and the result is no less disconcerting.
Film Review  August 20, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...Weird, yeah, but oh-so-Solondz, and somehow it works, in the disturbing, tragicomic way that is Solondz’s hallmark. Of the three Jordan sisters, Trish (Janney, brilliant in a characterization overflowing with chemically controlled perkiness) has moved the remains of her family to Florida to escape the grim shadow of her past..."

'New Works: Sunyong Chung'
Chung's two new sculptures offer a sublime glimpse of heaven and earth in balance
Arts Review  June 25, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...In leaving Chung's sculptures through the galleries currently filled with digital images by Chris Jordan, you're confronted with staggering levels of consumption by the human race and its deleterious impact on the environment. Seeing them after seeing One Year and The Dance adds to our appreciation of what we're losing through this rampant waste..."

Aggies Hook Horns, Astros Land Lee
DAILY Sports  November 25, 2006, by Christopher Gray
"...Adding insult to obviously-not-healed shoulder injury, Texas can't even count on possible revenge for LSU's 2000 Fair Park Filleting because of how the Tigers muddied the SEC waters with today's win over Arkansas. But today's game should lead to interesting offseason fishing trips for Colt McCoy and Burnet best buds Jordan Shipley and Stephen McGee..."
