"...Go try them out (Maybe all in one day? HMU if you want a companion, this sounds like my ideal morning) and get back to me. Ultimately, though, this is a question I have to leave incomplete, and open to suggestions from our dear readers..."
"...The issue is also being hashed out over at Beth Campbell's forum, a Web bulletin board where anyone can discuss current world events or post their thoughts on Beth's latest update (or their thoughts on somebody else's thoughts on Beth's latest update). Campbell, known to her readers as Beth or Lizzie or Xeney, is the catalyst of the debate; it is she who has just added a small, unobtrusive button to her site that enables visitors to donate money to her via PayPal (a site through which credit card transactions can be made)..."
"...Dear Editor, The Chronicle’s coverage of the Springdale Farm zoning change is misleading readers [“Discord Grows Over Springdale Farm,” News, Nov. 28]..."
"...21], I found the following concerning Proposition 2: "... but we expect regular Chronicle readers are largely in agreement in opposing this ridiculous amendment." Such a comment shortchanges many of your readers and, in turn, you shortchange yourselves..."
"...It's obvious from reading A Good Old-fashioned Future, Bruce Sterling's new collection of seven previously published stories, that the author has struck a deal with his Muse. "You give me license to use all sort of words no one has ever heard of," he must have begged her, "and in return I'll see to it ..." that what? That the near future is described in a chillingly convincing fashion? That readers will be forced to contemplate the logical conclusion of postmodernity, that people in the near future -- approximately the mid-21st century -- will be able to "read" crucial facts about one another without really knowing one another, using little cards called "spex" they wear around their necks? Sterling's universe is dire and fraught with a Big Brother-like power structure that, much to Sterling's credit, is never arrayed in full detail but left lurking in all its menacing, penumbral desperation..."
"...Dear Editor, Re: The review of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day [Film Listings, Dec. 4]: I don't understand how some people rely on the opinions of someone that does not share the same tastes as some of the readers..."
"...Dear Editor, I would think that Stephen Moser would owe his readers at least a small amount of respect and not write an article filled with petty criticism and an uncharitable attitude. His article about the Octo Tea Dance, particularly his view of the fashion lounge, is dramatically different from the view he portrayed that evening to many of the volunteers and volunteer models giving their time to the charity ["After a Fashion," Oct..."
"...Dear Editor, I saw your piece on Johnston High on July 4 [“Johnston High School Is Dead; Long Live ...?” News], and like "Mala Sangre" [News, Oct. 31, 2003] it is another waste of ink and an insult to your readers..."
"...After reading the letter, I decided to add a few comments of my own: 1) Freedom of the press is a right retained by those who own the press. Therefore the Chronicle is not required to cover what happens to the Back Room or any other Austin music venue. 2) The Austin Chronicle is primarily regarded by readers as an arts and entertainment paper..."
"...Perhaps the best war movie I've seen, it is easily worth four stars. Your reviewer's immature assessment of this fine movie does your readers a disservice [Film Listings, Aug..."
"... I chose your state because I want to learn more about it. I hope your readers can help me with my project..."
"...Those readers who have the singular misfortune of knowing me in real life (which probably accounts for a lot of you, doesn't it? It's a small town) have probably heard my rant on the migratory patterns of what we like to call the creative classes. For those of you not so blessed, the condensed version goes like this: Austin is the new Los Angeles for a generation of would-be Joan Didions ready to say goodbye to all that and leave behind the ballooning rental markets and bad weather, to kick off the shackles of public transportation and get really into podcasts behind the wheels of their brand-new hybrid cars...."
"...Unfortunately, after spending an unreasonable time calling restaurants, and texting with some of my greedier friends, I was unable to locate a restaurant in Austin willing to serve you hand-pulled noodles at an unreasonable hour. (Readers, know any secret spots? Help a sister out and drop me a line!)..."
"...The God-Wheel of Fate has stopped for all these kiddies on Yes! Yes to life! And yes to magic! Brad Neely, Wizard People, Dear Readers..."
"...Real S.O.S. Supporters Dear Readers,..."
"...45]. Hope that your good readers will think about the future generations and all of the money and nice land that is wasted in the process of disposing and storing zillions of stinking old human cadavers ....."
"...This is a bald faced lie. I demand that The Austin Chronicle retract it and apologize to its readers for reprinting an accusation of this magnitude about me and Mr..."
"...Michael Cosper [Music Editor Raoul Hernandez responds: Yes, dear readers, the unidentified person's back in the picture in question looks an awful lot like Doug Sahm to us as well. Unfortunately, that's unconfirmed..."
"...I think Pableaux Johnson did your readers a disservice lumping in Jim Jim's Water Ice in his round-up on sno-cones ["Let it Sno, Let it Sno," Vol.16, No.38]. Good, homemade water ice, of which Jim Jim's certainly qualifies, is more like sorbet than a sno-cone..."
"...If you wanted to get snobbish about it – and why not; both Pride and Prejudice and this action remix are well-concerned with classist attitudes – you might wonder if there could possibly be any crossover between the fan base of Jane Austen and that of zombie entertainments. But I at least count myself in the comfortable middle of that particular Venn diagram, and you should also count the many readers that put Seth Grahame-Smith’s 2009 mash-up on The New York Times Best Seller list for a year..."
"...JP: I guess we don't need to spare Chronicle readers. Is that a throw-down to the audience? The movie is a challenge from frame one..."
"...And if our brothers and sisters were to awaken and challenge Mr. Bush? With his limited imagination, what other alternative would there be than a conventional coup and martial law? Please, forgive my cynicism, perhaps one of your readers can show the way...."
"...In a large number of this year's entries, including the 10 finalists, characters experienced the loss of someone close or could see such a loss coming and were caught up in the process of grieving. In life, the void at the heart of that process can make feelings difficult to articulate, but in fiction, words can be found to describe the pain and turmoil inside, and we readers can understand what it means to endure the death of a sister who drove you crazy when she was alive, a parent when you yourself are still a child, a lover who doesn't speak your language...."
"...Dear readers of The Austin Chronicle, I want to, again, give a huge thanks to everyone who voted me Best Clothing Designer in the Readers Poll for the third year in a row [“Best of Austin,” Oct. 17]! I am so thankful and grateful for this recognition..."
"...Looking back, I can trace a direct path from Johnson's first sure steps in that crisis to the civil rights legislation and other domestic policies that focused on the generosity of the American spirit. For your readers (and writers) who are too young to remember great political leadership, it's time for a visit to the LBJ Library...."
"...While working its characters into a lather, Dear Pillow explores the art of getting off. Lorna (Viviane Vives) makes obscene and truncated phone calls, Dusty (Gary Chason) writes masturbatory fodder for the readers of the titular magazine, and Wes (Rusty Kelley) makes do with the frustratingly limited sexual outlets of the average teenager..."
"...Readers and fans of the literary, you might want to grab a napkin before feasting on the newly announced list of authors for the 2016 Texas Book Festival. With 280 authors on board – among them Don DeLillo, Thomas Dolby, Emma Cline, Jane Alexander, and Nick Offerman – you're sure to start salivating...."
"...As I said last year, the delight of the meal we shared was exceeded only by their company. And I honor the squadron of first-readers who ensured that each of the 381 submissions was read twice and ranked..."
"...The meal was exceeded only by your company. And I honor the squadron of first-readers who ensured that each of the 347 submissions was read twice and ranked..."
"...Sometimes there is too much Austin food news to squeeze into the print edition of the Chronicle. Rather than wait a week, we've decided to give our readers a little bite of something extra...."
"...I loved sharing a meal with you guys. Thanks also to our marketing gurus Erin Collier, Dan Hardick, Lia Crockett, and Sarah Wolf; our co-sponsors KGSR and BookPeople; and, of course, our army of first-readers: Wayne Alan Brenner, Jessi Cape, Lawrence Everett Forbes, Liz Franklin, Cassidy Frazier, Claire Gordon, Nina Hernandez, Shelley Hiam, Chase Hoffberger, Darlene Jones, Kimberley Jones, Amy Kamp, Michael King, Josh Kupecki, Matt Oztalay, James Renovitch, Jason Stout, Kristine Tofte, Anna Toon, Derek Van Wagner, Brandon Watson, and Danielle White..."
"...Here are most of – but not all – the comments from Chronicle readers on 9/11-conspiracy doubters...."
"...I am proud to admit that I like fruitcake, and fellow Chronicle Food writer Kate Thornberry is equally fond of mincemeat pie. In the following article, Kate and I sing the praises of this most maligned dynamic duo while informing readers of the respective noble heritages..."
"... I am sure that having the knowledge, gear and suggested workouts available to me will really help me in my quest to dramatically decrease my run time. Since there has been some discussion of overly cute images being used in the blogs, I decided to bring out the big guns. Austin Chronicle.com readers, fellow Team Zen members, please say hello to my adopted baby boy, Bjorn..."
"...Here, dear readers, for your consideration, perusal, or lambasting, are my choices for Top 10 TV in 2001:..."
"...Every Week Is the "Best" We sincerely hope, dear readers, that we are not doing you a great wrongness by failing to follow the theme of this issue, not listing for you here our Best of Austin "Public Notice" picks. We've two minds about this (perhaps you'd like to creep inside for a peek!):..."
"...It is a shame that progressives ignore the gory details of the election process as they campaign for their causes. We sure missed seeing the Chronicle reporters at a film screening at Netroots, Stealing America: Vote by Vote (www.stealingamericathemovie.org). It was very well received by the 75 moviegoers who attended. National election integrity group Election Defense Alliance (www.electiondefensealliance.org) worked with Austin-based VoteRescue (www.voterescue.org) to introduce the film and take questions after the screening. Stay tuned, dear readers, as the film was released in New York Aug..."
"...They look like the back of Lebron James’ USA basketball jersey. What is wrong with Chronicle readers? Did I forget to mention I’m willing to bribe people for their votes? Okay, how about this? Every person who votes for me will get his/her name mentioned in one of my film reviews..."
"...The point of touting this musical pedigree is to draw the line between generations and culture and impress upon you, dear readers, that the past can inspire the future. It is important for us to invest in the kid musicians of today -- brimming with drive, yet struggling for resources...."
"...Okay, readers, your wait to learn who will be attending the literary banquet of the year is over. The Texas Book Festival has announced the full menu of authors on tap for the 2017 event, and it's massive: 295 names, among them such luminaries as Jeffrey Eugenides, Jennifer Egan, Dan Rather, and Min Jin Lee...."
