A smaller SXSW Music week still satisfies
Music Column  March 22, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...Even in a year that felt distinctly tame or, for some, a return to its roots, SXSW Music week typically offered more unique experiences than any one individual could possibly absorb.

Something Rotten at EMS
Hawley retirement shines light on systemic issues
News Story  March 8, 2018, by Chase Hoffberger
"...This can be confirmed thanks to a package of documents delivered by the department's Public Information Office. The 28 files detail IA's investigation into a Sep­tem­ber 2017 incident in which Hawley used "threatening" and "confrontational" language toward a female medic over scheduling concerns, and used his physical size as an imposition on her (he stood in a doorway she was trying to exit and crumpled a piece of paper in front of her face); and two interviews by Jeff Steele of ATCEMS's Office of Professional Conduct investigating allegations that Hawley joined medics and cadets on a fitness drill in early January, rammed his head into a female medic's butt, and kept it there for what the medic said was two or three flights of stairs – reportedly as a way to encourage her to move faster...."

Alex Garland's SF mystery is weird for weirdness' sake.
Film Review  March 2, 2018, by Kimberley Jones
"...In adapting Annihilation, the first book in the trilogy, writer/director Alex Garland has seemingly pledged fealty, attempting a speculative film with “weird” baked into its genetic code. Weird is the film’s watchword, its true north, its “why we fight.” It steers the visuals – the mutated flora and fauna living within the mysterious Area X – and the story, a schematic of flashbacks within flashbacks and a headtrip climax that inevitably begs comparison to 2001: A Space Odyssey’s exit into the mystic..."

The Alamo was applauded at the time for its swift response; yet in September 2017, film podcaster George Hick­man found Faraci's byline on film descriptions for the Drafthouse-run Fantas­tic Fest, and the company confirmed he had in fact been rehired as a copywriter only four months after his ignominious exit..."

Blade Runner 2049
This visually lush sequel was worth the wait
Film Review  October 6, 2017, by Marc Savlov
"...Alfred Hitchcock warned audiences to please not give away the secrets of Psycho, but Denis Villeneuve’s orders were more succinct: Tell no one anything about the recursive, thoughtfully rich plot of his sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 masterpiece. This was prescient on his part, because the moment you exit Blade Runner 2049, the urge to discuss its labyrinthine, Russian nesting doll storyline – credited to screenwriters Hampton Fancher and Michael Green – is immediate and profound..."

DAILY Screens  September 7, 2017, by Kimberley Jones
"...“Some of us against the [Iraq] invasion are not bleeding-heart one-worlders who want to embrace our most murderous brethren, hugging them as they repeatedly stab us. Some of us are worried that Iraq is a quagmire that we got into too quickly, still barely understand, and from which we will find no graceful exit (if, in the most optimistic scenario, a cohesive, democratic nation emerges, don't expect it to do so immediately after the first election)..."

Lege Lines: Ignoring the Dawnna Dukes Problem
County Democratic Party Chair Vincent Harding doesn't want to talk about the beleaguered rep
News Story  June 8, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...Harding seemed to further exacerbate the situation on May 31 when he told the Statesman: "I do not think it would be wise for the Democratic Party to ask an elected African-American official to resign." That comment came in a broader context – that calling for Dukes' exit could be seen by her supporters as holding her to a different standard. Harding noted that no similar resolution had been broached when former Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, a white woman, was convicted of DWI in 2013 – to which Segura-Kelly reminded: "Rosemary had her legal issues, but she kept showing up for the job..."

"...Where “Bullet the Blue Sky” once rained down American imperialism on the southern half of the continent in an apocalyptic Hendrix guitar mangle, three decades later Joshua Tree closers “Exit” and “Mothers of the Disappeared” now represent global massacre and refugee-ism with a destructive verve, volume, and ultimately meditative unease.

So in February, Magnuson announced that he was stepping down as Michener Center director. In the months since, his praises have been sung (at a pair of UT events in early spring), his exit interviews published (Texas Monthly, Austin Monthly, Alcalde), and all that's left is to clean out his desk in the Dobie House, which he'll do in the next week, and find a place for all the books accumulated there ("probably a storage unit," he says, and it doesn't sound like he's kidding)..."

The Paramount Summer Classic Film Series, Song to Song
As heard in the movies
Screens Story  May 18, 2017, by Kimberley Jones
"...B" – Feathers, I hate feathers/ And I hate them so that I can hardly speak. Cole Porter's "Night and Day," written for the original stage production of Gay Divorce and brought to screen in 1934's The Gay Divorcee, was another pitch-woo song, but decidedly more sexy and thrumming, "like the beat beat beat of the tom-tom, when the jungle shadows fall." Berlin was a fan: In a 1933 letter to his friend Porter, he wrote, "I am mad about 'Night and Day,' and I think it is your high spot." Exit Music (for a Film)..."
