"...Five or six hours later, after only cursory examinations and as his condition continued to deteriorate, Rawney was prescribed a sedative, told to go home and rest, and then consult his primary care physician. He left the hospital in a wheelchair – he could no longer walk to the exit door, and when he spoke to Van Boven on the phone that evening, he couldn't lift his arms or move from his couch...."
"...It was as if a rectangle door of Exit West had opened into the Austin Central Library and migrants through time had poured into its Special Event Center for a transient moment en route to their next destination. So it felt on Wed., April 11, when Mohsin Hamid, author of the much-praised novel, arrived as a guest of the Mayor's Book Club...."
"...4) But if you’re looking to specifically audience a singular masterpiece of dance, we’re proud to point you toward Ballet Austin’s Exit Wounds, a stunning new collaboration from Stephen Mills and Graham Reynolds – opening at the Long Center on Friday, and continuing through Sunday...."
"...The people speaking out against abuse are the #MeToo movement. They are part of his life and points of inspiration for his full-length work Exit Wounds, premiering this week at the Long Center..."
"...Using a robot, officers blasted the duplex's door open, which eventually led to the suspect and a woman running from the home. During the course of their exit a SWAT officer shot and killed the suspect..."
"...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. Thus, "Playback" can only attempt to contextualize it by conducting an exit interview with itself. Who Was the Headliner?..."
"...One driver at the event spoke to why RideAustin has developed such a close relationship with drivers: The nonprofit treats them with dignity, he said, and pays more to them per ride. While Fasten's exit barely fazed him, of RideAustin the driver said: "These guys need to survive." Speaking to those drivers, Tryba celebrated 2.5 million rides completed and $330,000 donated to local charities through those rides..."
"...He knows too well what many presume to understand. Coming home from Delaware during the early hours of June 7, 2014, a Wal-Mart long-haul truck driver who hadn't slept in over a day struck a Sprinter limo-van Morgan was riding in, off Exit 9 on the New Jersey Turnpike..."
"..."You're beautiful," she grinned upon exit. "I love you..."
"... Plus, if you like your Texas films in bite-sized chunks, there are also two full programs on Texas shorts: one for adult filmmakers, and a special track dedicated to the next generation, Texas High School Shorts. And if you're watching the Midnight Shorts, raise a Dr Pepper for Austin's own Byron Brown and "The Mangina Exit." Maybe Premiere..."
"...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...."
"...Wynne, a former Ann Richards appointee, had the support of the Travis County delegation, and endorsements from an impressive slate of local clubs and unions. But much of that support coalesced around Wynne in the wake of attorney Rick Cofer’s early exit from the race under murky circumstances..."
"...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..."
"...(Also, hey – don’t be an asshole about this. If you’re in a movie when the 24-hour window opens, kindly exit the theatre before you whip out your phone.) Read more about the SXXpress system here...."
"...“You’re beautiful,” she grinned upon exit. “I love you..."
"...But the company crash came last September – or rather it began a year earlier, when Devin Faraci, editor of in-house movie news publication Birth.Movies.Death., resigned after being accused of sexually assaulting and harassing several women. 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..."
"...Eldridge said she called the Cookeville (Tenn.) Police Department the next day to ask how to file a complaint of excessive force against the arresting officer, and was told to come in at a certain time. She did, and upon her exit was met by the same officer who had arrested her mother; he told her that she too would be arrested..."
"..."We Forgot to Break Up" (Canada) D: Chandler Levack After a few years' absence, Evan unexpectedly returns one night to face his now-famous former bandmates. The surprise reunion is bittersweet, in this intimate depiction of the knotty complexities of relating to old friends after everything has changed..."
"...Locating Bassboss headquarters visually can prove tricky, but the building's impossible to miss by ear. Exit Highway 71 for the airport, then make a hard right on Cargo Avenue into a no man's land of shipping warehouses..."
"...A bright burst of Star Parks reinvigorated the late weeknight, trumpet and slide trombone teasing the flower power romanticism of 2016 debut Don't Dwell. Singer Andy Bianculli charmed with quick-witted blues guitar and a big take on George Harrison's "Let It Down." At their exit, four acts had reconstructed Texas' rock and folk tradition in novel but familiar form...."
"...Tapping directly into the headlines concerning issues of immigration and refugees is Exit West (Riverhead) from Pakistani novelist Mohsin Hamid. It's a beautifully written story of a young couple who flee civil war in an unnamed Muslim country, making their way to London and then Northern California..."
"...If Tennant's exit was a Christmas pud, then the final Smith story was like mulled wine. Both are cram-packed with flavorsome ingredients, but while the 10th seemed a little stodgy, 11's swan song was a heady concoction...."
"...Toni Price's Tuesday night "hippie hour" at the Continental Club came to an abrupt end last week after a continuous run – except for a couple of years spent in California – that began in 1992. Club owner Steve Wertheimer didn't respond to an email asking the reason for the quick exit of the longest-running weekly residency in Austin..."
"...Of course, we’ve already had the pleasure of two hours spent solo with Gadot in Wonder Woman – not a perfect movie, but a potent one. Lip service is paid in Justice League to the idea of Diana being the natural leader here (aka the Ben Affleck Exit Plan)..."
"...Lewis' exit brings a more familiar name into the fold: attorney Anne Wynne, a veteran of both Ann Richards' county commissioner and gubernatorial campaigns, and the founder of equal marriage rights nonprofit Atticus Circle. Wynne has already picked up several major endorsers, including Sen..."
"...A nightmare scenario like Ghost Ship could easily befall a tiny restaurant where an industrial-strength fog machine pumps such thick clouds that dancers can barely see their hands, let alone an exit. Or a bar that locks the doors at 2am and puts up a "private party" sign to keep the dance floor moving..."
"...Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, are calling on the federal government to release an undocumented 10-year-old with cerebral palsy from the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Border Patrol followed Rosa Maria Hernandez to a Corpus Christi hospital for surgery, waited for her, and made the arrest upon her exit..."
"...In the wake of Speaker Joe Straus declaring he will not run for re-election for the Texas House, another unexpected exit from the 2018 election cycle: Rick Cofer, the sole declared candidate to become the next chair of the Travis County Democratic Party, is withdrawing from the race...."
"...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..."
"...A grassroots organization opposed to the bill, Texas Works Together, did a study of how much money Texas stands to lose if SB 4 were to go into effect. An estimated 1.4 million Texans are undocumented, and Texas Works Together estimates that 10 to 15% would exit the state, leaving Texas short at least $220 million annually in local and state tax revenues...."
"...Even though Cofer only formally announced his candidacy a day after Harding announced his exit, he's already accrued endorsements from a marquee set of current and former county officials, as well as the Austin AFL-CIO Central Labor Council. He's said he wants to move the party left, and make it more impactful at the ballot box..."
"...During her time at Quickie Pickie, Pèlegrin constantly fought with Prasla and even quit on multiple occasions. After the final exit, Pèlegrin was able to collect unemployment because she proved her pay had been inconsistent..."
"...[image-1] The allegations came in the wake of the current scandal surrounding some aspects of the business culture within the Alamo Drafthouse. Those came in turn after it was revealed that disgraced former employee Devin Faraci (who resigned in 2016 after he was accused of, and did not deny, claims he had groped another critic) had been quietly re-employed soon after his exit...."
"...quartet and its mastery of psychedelic drone. As the amphitheatre filled to bursting, attendees hanging in the aisles and wings hoping to stake out a view of their gods, Warpaint earned their exit applause and instant converts...."
"...The spooky quickly gives way to the enticing as you exit the house's living room through the fireplace, closet, refrigerator, stairs, or hallway. The path you choose is a portal to alternative worlds of light, sound, and touch..."
"...5) Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. It’s like you’re taking a day trip, but without the trip taking an entire day to get there – just a little ways down MoPac on a Sunday afternoon, and there you are, wandering Lady Bird’s vast fields of petal-forward xeriscaping and outdoor sculpture of all kinds, stretching your legs along the manicured paths of environmental stewardship and Spanish-inflected architecture, and remembering to exit (as a cactus-disguised Banksy might remind you) through the gift shop...."
"...“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)..."
"...And yes, after a month or so of hearing your wavering, waffling, wishy-washy voice vacillating over the most ridiculously insignificant decisions, any woman in her right mind would take the first available exit, even if you look like Cary Grant. And by the way, Cary Grant seemed to have some major therapeutic breakthroughs while undergoing LSD therapy back in the late Fifties..."
"...She's referring to the exit of original drummer Anna Lamphear, off to study law, and the addition of veteran Austin drummer Lisa Cameron, who brought a new edge to the threepiece...."
"...Rodriguez, aka Dave Tejas, has been a close friend and frequent tourmate of the Casualties since the late Nineties. In the wake of Hererra's sudden exit, they asked Rodriguez to fill in at Fuck You We Rule OK! fest in Tulsa this month and liked the results enough to keep him on for two months of touring in Europe and the U.S..."
"...It is a sign of our times that a program on the down-list HGTV cable channel can generate huge audiences and traffic. The Gaines couple's show, Fixer Upper, entices somewhere around 35,000 visitors a week to exit the interstate to make the pilgrimage to Waco..."
"...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..."
"...But the question isn't whether to slow down, but how to move ahead. Most fundamentally: Do we want to continue with the three-part code (see map and key at left) that virtually everyone has slammed as overly complicated and hard to use, and that has no exit strategy? If so, Council needs to declare that and shut down the conversation; if not, they need to declare that, and start a new conversation...."
"...SXSW 2017 was a slight return for Byrd after a nerve-shredding 2009 tour led to his exit. No Soundcheck for him, either..."
"...Our local team is focused on making sure that Uber works for Austinites and helping our driver-partners earn. We know that we have a lot of work to do in the city, and we couldn't be more excited for the road ahead." Considine's company also issued a statement apologizing for its abrupt exit, as well as a number of email blasts to Austin users..."
"...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. Bono’s past proselytizing keeps in check currently with a football field-sized screen doing most of the work in words and images..."
"...Accepting the new position and leaving Austin wasn't an easy decision, Hammond told the Chronicle in an exit interview at the Austin Animal Center. With the Levander Loop campus currently undergoing $5.9 million in renovations to expand kennel space, add pet adoption rooms, and improve drainage, "I feel like I'm leaving a perfect life." But her parents in Chicago and her in-laws in Michigan need support..."
"...Anyone who's observed the byzantine processes and procedures of academia will grasp how much time the navigation of those territories requires, and logged over more than two decades ...? 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)..."
"...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)..."
