Topfer Theatre at Zach
"...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. There’s real substance among the neon glitz and drink specials – Steve Jordan plays Fridays at the Saluté International Bar and the White Rabbit catches many of the Emo’s bands...."
"...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...."
"...Directed by: Jordan Peele. Starring: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Betty Gabriel, Marcus Henderson, Lakeith Stanfield, Stephen Root, Lil Rel Howery and Erika Alexander...."
"...Directed by: Neil Jordan. Starring: Nick Nolte, Tchéky Karyo, Saïd Taghmaoui, Nutsa Kukhianidze, Gérard Darmon, Marc Lavoine, Emir Kusturica, Mark Polish and Michael Polish..."
"...The Weitz brothers, who previously brought us American Pie, return with this update of Warren Beatty's 1978 directorial debut Heaven Can Wait (itself a remake of 1941's Here Comes Mr. Jordan), proving once again that no matter how many times you remake a film it's tough to top the original..."
"...Directed by: Gregor Jordan. Starring: Billy Bob Thornton, Kim Basinger, Mickey Rourke, Winona Ryder, Jon Foster, Amber Heard, Brad Renfro, Chris Isaak, Lou Taylor Pucci, Rhys Ifans, Austin Nichols and Mel Raido..."
"...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...."
"...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..."
"...His girlfriend Erin (Maxxe Sternbaum) is unhappy about the move and the extent to which it has disrupted her own career. The situation between the two gets worse when Chris (Jordan Lewis), an overly inquisitive neighbor, interjects himself into their lives..."
"...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..."
"...Thanks to Randy Jewart of Austin Green Art for bringing Lawrence's show here. If you like this art show, Google Chris Jordan's photos after you've signed the petition at www.donotmail.org...."
"...Chris Crawford had a strong interest in linguistics, and his Gossip was a game about interpersonal relationships. Jordan Mechner cast a martial arts game [Karateka] as a drama, with camera cuts and a simple, advancing plot..."
"...• After he and his family racked up a $30,000 hotel bill during a luxurious weekend getaway at a Jordanian resort, paid for by the King of Jordan, Christie claimed the junket was not a violation of the state gift ban, for he and the king were personal friends – but he'd only met the king once, in a brief encounter at a political dinner...."
"...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..."
"...8) AUSTIN MUSEUM OF ART The best shows of celebrated out-of-towners – e.g., "American Letterpress: The Art of the Hatch Show Print" and "Chris Jordan: Running the Numbers" – are paired with work by commensurate locals (Luke Savisky, Sunyong Chung). And now AMOA's finishing the year with a Flatbed Press retrospective? Hallelujah!..."
"...Mrs. Glass – the enigmatic Jordan Webster – alone with his guitar and slide...."
"...Not that every image has to be immediately shocking. During the conference, artist Chris Jordan's work Toxic Forest was on display...."
"...Then lastly, a recap of the last week's City Council drama in adopting Austin Energy's climate protection and generation plan, including some cut-rate Carole Keeton Strayhorn impersonations. As always, Jordan Smith and Wells Dunbar are your totally awesome hosts...."
"...Directed by: Kevin Jordan. Starring: Heather Jae Marie, Rosemarie Addeo, Amy Hathaway, Bill Henderson, Christa Miller, Steven Martini and Derick Martini..."
"...The Taiwan Oyster Director: Mark Jarrett, Screenwriters: Mark Jarrett, Jordan Heimer, Mitchell Jarrett Two Ex-Pat Kindergarten teachers in Taiwan embark on a quixotic odyssey to bury a fellow countryman. Cast: Billy Harvey, Jeff Palmiotti, Leonora Lim (World Premiere)..."
