"...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..."
"...Other 512ers on deck: Beat Root Revival, Brainwavve, Buck Meek, the Bvtcher, Crocodile Tears, Death of a Dream, Devras Plexi, Fort Never, Inflatable Robot, Royal Forest, Sass, Small Houses, and Temple of Angels...."
"...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..."
"...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...."
"...Crying: The Natural and Cultural History of Tearsby Tom Lutz..."
"...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..."
"...Following closely behind is the quintet’s sixth LP, Darkest Sour. The Sour Notes play tonight at Hotel Vegas with Crocodile Tears, Desert Culture, and Hex Boyfriend...."
"...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."..."
"...Crocodile Tears at Barracuda..."
"...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..."
"...Austin OUTs itself, Texas gets beat down, and a straight mens' magazine looks to us for leadership, as your AggreGAYtor cries crocodile tears for victims of marriage...."
"...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. Add to it our official crocodile tears over the slaughter of Palestinian civilians – with weapons we have supplied to Israel, while also funding illegal settlements on Palestinian land...."
"...Those with alligator questions can call TWPD at 409/736-2551 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Just don't cry crocodile tears..."
"...GetEqual takes on John Boehner, but receives no crocodile tears...."
"...11pm: Crocodile Tears (Hugo Vargas Zesati, Deano Jones, and Mike Sullivan) and Star-boat! (Chris Allen, Jeff Britt, Peter Rogers, and Ashley Lowe)..."
"...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..."
"...See the above photo of the sobbing youngster who may or may not have been upset that his beloved Sooners got squashed by the University of Texas Longhorns. Or maybe his dad wouldn't buy him a corny dog. In either case, he's not the only one in Norman with crocodile tears..."
"...Meanwhile, U.S. troops do their best to make a difference and shed crocodile tears for a murdered Iraqi interpreter..."
"...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...."
