'Crocodile Tears' Misleading
Postmarks  August 14, 2014
"...15]: I realize that there were so many horrible things to include that you couldn't spend much time on any of them. But the one line you devoted to "crocodile tears" being shed over Israel's "slaughter of Palestinian civilians" using American-sent weapons is itself a horrible distortion..."

Live Music to See This Weekend
Unpacking Christmas in July
DAILY Music  July 14, 2017, by The Music Staff
"...A big stage commingling of vintage R&B, garage rock, Southern soul, and AM pop pivots on the Reputations’ dual-frontwomen, six vocalist dynamic, now among the most transcendent live acts in Austin. This gratis get-down welcomes fellow townies Crocodile Tears, who sound like Elvis Costello in black leather, Southern Gothic jangle sirens the Diamond Center, and Angry Beige, whose mellow psych wafts on the mysterious coo of Davy Molina..."

Warrior
Knockout performances by the three central characters and powerfully effective fight sequences are the key ingredients that spur this male weepie.

Film Review  September 9, 2011, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...What might have been a cliché-ridden movie about drunken Irish boxers and sibling rivalries is instead a carefully modulated film about acceptance and redemption. Not that Warrior isn’t a tad overlong at 139 minutes or that the plot is cliché-free, but director and co-scriptwriter Gavin O’Connor (who also helmed Miracle, that uplifting movie set amid the slightly less violent sport of hockey) has a firm handle on his material and how to convey it sans crocodile tears and gratuitous mayhem...."

Music Column  July 5, 2002, by Ken Lieck
"...During the last few days at the club, there have been lots of tears and lots of frustration; at times it seemed that the waitresses were quitting in shifts. At one point on Thursday night, Debbie Rombach was seen huddling behind the mercifully closed backroom bar, unable to go back out and face harsh reality..."

Music Column  May 4, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...Scrapping older material while retaining the chemistry, Gibbs, the now betrothed duo of singer Rockaynne Bullwinkel and drummer Jimmy Wildcat, and bassist Justin Smith added Mad Maude & the Hatters' Jenny Carson and Crocodile Tears' Rudy Spencer to complete their six-vocalist lineup – four Ikes, two Tinas – and explore a sort of melodious R&B with garage rock oomph they've dubbed "power soul."..."

Lace Curtains
Music Review  November 26, 2014, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Besides "Pink and Gold" and "Saint Vitus" – a level of energy unto itself in this circle – the latter's second platter offers cheeky love songs in contrast to Grape St.'s late-night retro sockhop. "Be Good" and "Crocodile Tears" play as lullabies; "Boardwalk to the Alps" and "Wilshire and Fairfax" the dejected heartbreakers..."

News Column  August 14, 2014, by Michael King
"...role in creating the conditions for and even the arming of the Iraqi insurgents we are now bombing, in an absurd recapitulation of the earlier background of our war on Afghanistan.

Welcome to Hazleweird
Lee Hazlewood
DAILY Music  December 14, 2007, by Raoul Hernandez
"...What the Meat Puppets could do to Hazlewood’s “Hutchinson Jail.” On the other hand, a fairly straight Hazlewood nugget of romantic regret, “By the Way,” could be any prime country-western male stoicizing. Covers of Harlan Howard’s trotsy “Sally Was a Good Old Girl” and Bobby Darin’s “Since You’re Gone” soak up more crocodile tears..."

Top 10 State Stories
Our state leaders bumble through the year
News Story  January 7, 2005
"...8) Slashing State Employees: Although it's happening slowly and therefore largely beneath the radar, the Health and Human Services "reorganization," mandated under 2003's HB 2292, proceeds – and what is billed as "re-org" inevitably becomes "slashing jobs." Several thousand positions, many of them in Austin, are at risk, while state leaders simultaneously shed crocodile tears over the understaffing at CPS and related agencies. The job cuts are a double whammy, because not only do they diminish services to the most vulnerable, they create a whole new group of at-risk folks – newly laid off professionals cut loose in a still-weak economy...."

The Statesman's Coverage of the Lacresha Murray case
News Column  August 31, 2001, by Michael King
"...Last week in "Austin Stories" ("Crocodile Tears"), I pointed to another recent case of the syndrome, this one more serious: Garcia's self-absorbed rant ("The Case Is Closed, but What About Jayla?" Aug. 18) against "the community, the system, or whatever we choose to call ourselves" for supposedly "forgetting" the murder of the infant Jayla Belton "in our rush to see that justice was done" for the accused child Lacresha Murray, against whom all charges were recently dropped..."
