SXSW Comedy Review: Cavett on Comedy With Dave Hill
Dick Cavett's fave talk-show moments and friendship with Ali
DAILY SXSW  March 12, 2018, by Ashley Moreno
"...Dick Cavett was friends with Groucho Marx, frenemies with Norman Mailer, confidant of Bette Davis, and a character witness for John Lennon. But it was his friendship with Muhammad Ali that brought him to SXSW this year and into a hilarious and touching conversation with WFMU’s Dave Hill...."

The Black Metal Dialogues Live!
Dave Hill brings the legend of Witch Taint to extreme black life at SXSW
Arts Story  March 9, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...Okay, as the opening to an epic tale, it’s no “Sing, Goddess, Achilles’ rage,/ Black and murderous, that cost the Greeks/ Incalculable pain, pitched countless souls/ Of heroes into Hades’ dark,/ And left their bodies to rot as feasts/ For dogs and birds, as Zeus’ will was done.” Still, it works well enough in setting the stage for the saga of Lance – he of Gary, Indiana, born the king of black metal (“and a ton of other shit, too”); genius behind Witch Taint, the blackest black metal band anywhere (including Norway), whose music is so black that when you listen to it, Lance says, you better not have any sharp objects around because you may want to kill yourself...."

SXSW Turns the Tables on Comedy Connoisseur Dick Cavett
The veteran talk-show host matters because he took the art of being funny seriously
Arts Story  March 8, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...SXSW Comedy has turned the tables on the veteran interviewer, subjecting him to queries from radio host and comedian Dave Hill of Witch Taint: The Black Metal Dialogues Live! fame. But here's betting that Cavett proves every bit as engaging when he's on the receiving end of questions as he always has been asking them...."

SXSW Comedy Review: Witch Taint: The Black Metal Dialogues Live!
Blackest metal and droll humor combine for nonstop laughs
DAILY Arts  March 14, 2017, by Sean L. Malin
"...The answer is hopefully “yes,” because Dave Hill – the comedian and writer whose Witch Taint: The Black Metal Dialogues Live! packed the Hideout Theatre with SXSW attendees on Sunday – depends on his audience knowing the name of at least one semi-mainstream metal group to push his warped two-man show through successfully. Like a twisted Burzum concert staged in the manner of A.R..."

Princes of Punk
New Kinks “Picture Book”
DAILY Music  January 9, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Ray and Dave Davies had been pissed off since 1964’s “You Really Got Me,” so by the late 1970s they were bemused by UK punks shoveling dirt on their coffins. Beginning in February 1977, on Sleepwalker, and continuing through Misfits (’78), Low Budget (’79), live laceration One For the Road (1980), and peaking perfectly on Give the People What They Want, the Kinks defined Ray Davies’ “Prince of the Punks.” Picture Book, the new 6-CD overview of the Muswell Hill(billy) quartet, isn’t quite perfect, but it sneers in all the right places and faces...."

Food Story  March 31, 2000, by Margaret Moser

Teenage Catgirls in Heat
This Troma film was made right here in Austin and tells the lurid story of cats that metamorphose into nubile women and "rub up against things" and cause havoc.
Film Review  February 17, 1995, by Marc Savlov
"...Who would've thought that the company that brought us The Toxic Avenger, Sorority Babes in the SlimeBall Bowl-A-Rama, and Surf Nazis Must Die would pick up a local product like this? Just a hunch, but I'll wager it had something to do with the working title of the production being Teenage Catgirls in Heat and the oodles of topless Texans prancing across the screen and meowing like, well, teenage catgirls in heat. When a mysterious sphinx-like statue is unwittingly uncovered by a crazed Hill Country gramma one day, all the cats around town commit mass kitty suicide by leaping to their deaths from whatever high place they can scramble to (telephone poles, hilltops, roofs)..."
