"...Smitty might have added Georgetown to the Austin/San Antonio axis. Mayor Dale Ross has a cameo in From the Ashes, representing one of 25 cities that have now committed to 100% renewable energy, Georgetown successfully..."
"...White, Paul Sorvino, Chris Noth and Evan Jones. After his 3,000th base hit, cocksure ball player Stan Ross (Mac) quit on the spot, trading Miller Field for stewardship of a dreary strip mall in suburban Milwaukee..."
"...As Sam Rogers, the lone man of semi-conscience forced by circumstance to damn the torpedoes (and possibly his soul), Spacey brings with him decided echoes of Glengarry Glen Ross gone apocalyptic. It's a bravely nuanced performance for a character who is, ultimately, no better than the rest of these pecuniary freebooters..."
"...3. Craig Ross, Dead Spy Report (MCA)..."
"...Using five songs he originally prepared at home to pitch to another Atlantic artist, Garza's 4-Track Manifesto not only prepared the local's existing fanbase for a fairly radical rock crossover, it also made college radio inroads with "Disco Ball World." Even better, Garza spent nearly two months on the record store circuit, playing in-stores for members of the Independent Retail Coalition - stores that could play pivotal roles early in the retail promotion of Garza's full-length debut...."
"...ROBBIE FULKS: Country Love Songs, the Bloodshot Records debut by this Chicago artist, was as solid a salvo as any across the bow of the country mainstream, indicating that songwriters outside Nashville's inner circle are kicking down the proverbial door. Like Roger Miller, Fulks covers both comedic and heartfelt territory, with a smooth country croon that underscores the power of his pen..."
"...Throw in Terrence Malick's Badlands, and that quartet makes up Star Crossed Lovers, just one of a broad selection of special programming that makes up the schedule at the Paramount and neighboring Stateside. Two giants of cinema get special nods, starting with Peter Sellers, Scene Stealer, followed by Hitchcock Week's celebration of one of the masters of crime cinema..."
"...“It was an incredibly competitive year with record submission numbers, and although we had to make really tough decisions, we are extremely excited about this lineup. I’m in awe of the talent on display throughout all the sections,” says Film Conference and Festival Producer Janet Pierson, “We feel we've achieved a great balance that continues our tradition of screening films across all budget lines and styles, and we take particular pride in witnessing the evolution of SXSW alumni as well as the vitality of fresh voices.”..."
"...Other Notable Contributions: Richard Garriott, executive vp, Origin Systems, $5,000; political consultant George Shipley, Shipley & Associates, $1,500; environmentalist Jon Beall, $1,200; Neal T. (Buddy) Jones, legislative consultant, $1,000; Ronald Carroll, CSC Continuum, $1,000; Michael Kaufman, regional president of SW Bell, $1,000; Bobby & Cindy Ross, the Bobby Ross Group, $1,000; J..."
"..."I didn't set out to do social satire," Judge said in Pierson's class; he told Terry Gross, on Fresh Air, that people perhaps made too much of politics in King of the Hill. Mostly, he said, it was about people who had lives to lead and things to do and didn't think about political matters a large part of the time...."
"...CRAIG ROSS: Having worked with everyone from Daniel Johnston to Shawn Colvin, Ross' resume might seem a little strange until hearing his own work. His Dead Spy Report nods to Neil Young and the Thirteenth Floor Elevators, as well as the Jesus and Mary Chain..."
"...Craig Ross got the first good review for his second album Everland in the pages of this month's Request magazine. The only problem is that the MCA album, which was to be released last week, won't be appearing until at least next year and most likely will not even be on MCA..."
"...Craig Ross was spotted chatting with Sire Records' Seymour Stein during the latter's recent visit, but Ross says that isn't an indication that he plans to jump ship from MCA any time soon. His next album with that company, however, isn't scheduled to be released until (tentatively) the beginning of next year..."
"...Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie (D: Jeffrey Ross)..."
"...Probably because Austin's been spoiled by South by Southwest, that's why. And yet, even with wristband-exchange woes and a shortage of food that could have used intervention from the Red Cross, it was still the most obvious response to last year's inaugural Austin City Limits Music Festival...."
"...Hot on the heels of finishing up his own second album for MCA (due out around October, with no title chosen yet), Craig Ross has been producing tracks with Malcolm Burn in New Orleans for recent Capitol signees the Don Piper Situation. Yes, you're right, that is the Don Piper from long-gone Austin pop band Balloonatic, who split town, formed a new combo, and got signed to the big "C" all in less than two years..."
"...Del Valle ISD Admin. Bldg., 5301 Ross, 8am-6pm..."
"...From a long way away, they look alright, but upon closer inspection, you can practically hear the words "Attention, Blue Light Special!!!" emanating from them. The cheesy tinsel garland looks like it's seen better days, and rather than creating a reflective glow across the strings of lights, it simply blocks them, making it appear that the city cannot afford to replace a lot of burned out bulbs..."
"...Bessie Smith, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, Ray Charles, B.B. King, James Brown, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Diana Ross, Al Green, the Temptations, Curtis Mayfield, Parliament/Funkadelic, Sly & the Family Stone, Prince, Staple Singers, Neville Brothers...."
