"...Our group – half friends, half strangers – met in the cozy waiting area, where toys and brain-teasers are provided to warm up prospective escapees. When our time came, the gentleman at the front desk donned a satin cloak and launched into his introduction: For our final exam, we must complete the challenges laid out by the headmaster, unlocking a chest containing our diplomas and, of course, the key that unlocks the exit door...."
"...Punk magazine founder/cartoonist John Holmstrom contributed much to the Queens-bred chainsaw punks' graphic presentation, from the fumetti gracing the "Blitzkrieg Bop" 45 sleeve to the hilarious "Ramones map of the world" stamping the back of third LP Rocket to Russia. For Road to Ruin, a transitional record marking the exit of original drummer Tommy Ramone and debut of Marky Ramone, featured the closest thing they had to a hit single, "I Wanna Be Sedated." Holmstrom adapted a concept from Scottish fan Gus MacDonald, rendering it more Hanna-Barbera. – Tim Stegall Doug SahmGroover's Paradise (1974)..."
"...Resaca de la Palma State Park is northwest of Brownsville about five miles off of I-69 East at the Olmito exit. A tram takes visitors to the park's 15 trailheads..."
"...During our "exit interview," Nick Cannon assures me that he's never been rejected at any point in his life. "What's next for your band?" he asks with the kind of joylessness that comes from someone who must've had to watch Glitter a lot..."
"...By the time we hit midtown, the train was packed. Jodi and I had miscalculated the best stop to get us uptown, so we decided to hop off two stops before our planned exit for a better route..."
"...The book suffers from typos, fanboy superlatives, and the redundancy of following an explanatory paragraph with a direct quote saying the exact same thing. Still, Let's Go to Hell brims with plentiful drama as band members exit via fistfights and surprise bus tickets home, not to mention universally disastrous relationships with record labels..."
"...With July 1 looming, and closer than it appears, former Longhorn great Kevin Durant's tumultuous exit from playoffs – via a dramatic comeback by the Golden State Warriors – only puts the prolific scorer's future into full view. He's scheduled to become a free agent, where no less than six teams will vie for the 6'11" future Hall of Famer's services..."
"...Dear Editor, Michael King's column, "Point Austin: Pushed Out" [News, May 27] asks why many of Austin's African-American residents are moving out of the city. As someone who lives with one of those African-American residents, the short answer is that the policies pushed by your paper are a big driver of that exodus. One example: The Austin Urban League and the Austin chapter of the NAACP wrote an open letter before the vote that caused Uber and Lyft to exit the city, saying that the fingerprint requirement would disproportionately harm poor and minority residents of Austin..."
"...If the city does accept it as a valid petition, Council would need a three-quarters supermajority to pass the PUD, if it's rejected by the Planning and/or Zoning and Platting commissions. The lawsuit is just one avenue pursued by homeowners like Cat and Ryder Jeanes, who live next door to an ARG-owned house on 45th Street that ARG wants to tear down and replace with an exit to the development..."
"...At what he had hoped would be a victory rally in Indianapolis, the junior senator from Texas absorbed the fact that he had suffered a 16-point loss to Donald Trump. Cruz announced his exit from the race thusly: "From the beginning, I've said that I would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory..."

"...It's all over the place. That design has this exit point drawn into it..."
"...Horace Trubridge, Assistant General Secretary of the British Musicians’ Union, accurately described it as an “attitude.” He then later so destroyed his own credibility to speak on the subject with any authority by dismissing U.S. punk as “too pretty and commercial” that he caused ex-Gang of Four drummer and loyal SXSW attendee Hugo Burnham to violently shake his head and exit the audience and room...."
"...It is a truth universally acknowledged that an Anglophile audience must be in want of something to bitch about, from Reign to Downton Abbey, which both end this year. In the latter case, perhaps awful Edith's vague romance with a mysterious cousin was one possible reason to exit Downton Abbey, which comes to its American close on Sunday, March 6, 8pm...."
"...The Horns were never in the contest, as Kansas played loose and without pressure, as they already had at least a share of the Big 12 regular season championship. Short an early exit from the conference tournament, the Jayhawks have likely wrapped up a No..."
"...Buck Pollard's speedy and peculiar exit as longtime chief leaves the position in turmoil for the former city-dwelling FBI agent McBride, who steps in unaware of the generations-deep web of good ol' boy secrets. The story starts off with a double murder, and the plot just gets twistier – terrible for McBride and his angsty (but likable) teenage son Ethan, but great for the reader..."
"...Her death is not an excuse for the main plot or a day in the life of a jaded detective. Her exit from the world is a profound, shattering event to those who loved her, changing their lives and demanding of their all-consuming attention, 'til they find purpose only in their search for the truth of her life and the facts of her murder...."
"...Every March, the spectacle of South by Southwest rolls into town like a carnival caravan: building stages in parking lots, erecting towering shrines to brands, transforming taverns into tech studios – an installation here, an activation there, magnification everywhere. Then, nine days later, exit the extravaganza and what's left? Besides millions of greenbacks in tourism dollars, that is...."
"...Cupp's Drive-Inn is at 1424 Speight Ave., just north and east of the 17th Street exit off I-35 in Waco. The grill serves a full breakfast menu from 8:30-11am, and old-fashioned hamburgers until 3:30pm, Monday through Saturday..."
"...I could've lounged at those picnic tables all day, but the morning-after was beginning to stretch into afternoon; it was time for me and my pup to gracefully make our exit. Important side note: Both spots we visited were dog-friendly..."

"...With Paul Ray’s exit this morning at St. David’s South Austin Medical Center, Austin has not only lost one of its unique voices, but also one of its great characters..."
"...Rick Perry – officially becoming The-Longest-Serving-Governor-in-Texas-History – finally stepped down in January from his endless regime, then took one last swipe at a presidential run, to a predictably early exit. It's some comfort that the national electorate isn't as credulous as that of Texas – although among this year's field, hard-right Perry was just too moderate..."
"...Elliott Naishtat, D-Austin. Her exit means a vacant seat on the Nov..."
"...I admit – their exit plans have reminded me of liberals' threat to move to Canada if Dubya won the presidency back in 2000. Of the presumably few who actually made good on the promise, I've genuinely wondered: How'd that work out? Is the poutine as good as they say? Is there still room for the rest of us?..."
"...A week ago, it looked like it would be slack times for state candidates and campaign operatives in Travis County, with few contested primaries on tap. But a flurry of last-minute filings – plus the unexpected but unsurprising exit of an incumbent – means crowded state races for the next three months..."
"...That Cage picked this material is less bizarre than the fact that it was directed by Uli Edel, responsible for serious art-house fare like The Baader Meinhof Complex, Last Exit to Brooklyn, and seminal Berlin heroin drama Christiane F. However, as oddball, low-budget, and straight-to-VOD as this is, there are flashes of excellence, including one shot that is truly haunting..."
"...Po Po Restaurant is just north of I-10 on FM 289 at the Welfare exit. Reservations are recommended at 830/537-4194..."
"...Serenaded by Verdi, Puccini, and other composers whose operatic works she treasured, a treasured friend of the Austin arts scene made her final exit from it Thursday. Jo Anne Christian, a crusader in the campaign to build the Long Center and a passionate patron and advocate for many cultural causes, died at Christopher House..."
"...Then on Nov. 3, the COTA board announced the exit of CEO Jason Dial, saying they were “going in a different direction.”..."
"...As October readies its exit alongside ghouls and goblins, that means it’s time to start thinking about South by Southwest. The music arm of the local mega-conference, scheduled for March 15-20, revealed 154 official showcasing acts this morning...."

"...Mateo rounds out the month’s panel, the earnest story of a kid whose participation in a theatre program enables a glimpse at liberatory exit from the criminal underworld incrementally entangling him. Winner of both the Jury and Audience Awards for Best Narrative Feature at Cine Las Americas last year, Mateo screens Oct..."
"...Moving back and forth in time and narrative, Kat and Rose’s plotlines and backstories merge with those of Rose (Emma Roberts), an apparent escapee from the local mental hospital. Taking place over the course of a weekend, February is the kind of Fantastic Fest film that worms its way into that way far back reptilian part of your brain, where it then lays eggs, which will probably hatch a few hours after you exit the theatre, whereupon you go all Sam Neill at the end of John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness..."
"...That morning, we stopped at a gas station along I-35 off the St. Johns exit to get supplies for our "long drive ahead," and to get money from the ATM..."
"...And Todd Rundgren. What can I say? The couple in front of us must have taken a hint with the Bee Gees cover song and decided to save as much of their high as they could by making their exit before Todd's appearance..."

"...Seventy-five minutes yielded an encore in Sonny Boy Slim’s penultimate “Shake,” a simple, monochromatic, Black Keys-type rocker. Perfect exit..."
"...Upon exit, a brawny live music soldier sported an Unknown Pleasures shirt, but rather than a morose Manchester scowl, he wore the same elation everyone exited with upon the stroke of the witching hour. At 11:26pm, Royal Headache had sprung into action much as it had at its Austin premiere three years earlier, during Chaos in Tejas at what’s now Cheer Up Charlies – opening for Kiwi primitives the Clean..."
"...Considering the hasty exit and reopening, neither venue had the lead time to prep a sentimental stretch of goodbye shows. Owners of Holy Mountain, which shared a landlord with Red 7 and also couldn't renegotiate a lease renewal, have had months to queue the perfect walk-off music..."
"...– Empty Bottle 8/19 Nashville, Tenn. – Exit/In 8/22 Dallas – Three Links..."
"...Thus primed, a mixed crush of women on date night brought the love, Miguel reciprocating with gyrations swinging between Axl Rose and Prince. Wildheart opener "A Beautiful Exit," as with most of the 90-minute set, twinged overt rock, yet by the midpoint, random women were brought onstage and allowed the opportunity to be grinded on Miguel-style to Fetty Wap's "Trap Queen," which ended in a gratuitous ridding of clothing..."
"...Shortly after making heads roll with crowd favorite “Guillotine,” Death Grips vacated Mohawk in haste. While a looped sample persisted, the three members scurried off stage right, out the alleyway exit, and into a black Cadillac Escalade..."
"...A press release sent from District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg’s desk notes that the officers “asked him repeatedly” to exit his truck and shut his door when Zoss and Mayo tried to open it. It adds that the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office "found that Sullivan died as the result of complications of blunt force trauma with a significant factor of ankylosing spondylitis, a pre-existing inflammatory disease that causes vertebra to fuse together, limiting or preventing spinal flexibility." – C.H...."

"...Hessel admits that it doesn't look like the average science museum so far, with the marking of the old indoor soccer pitch still on the floor. "When people arrive, they're asking, where have I come?" But as people exit, he said, "they're really impressed."..."
"...When visiting the office, Cato and Stapleton were told the clerk did not have the “proper forms,” however, when the couple pulled out a copy of a revised application they brought along, the assistant deputy clerk failed to accept it. Shortly thereafter, Clerk Katie Lang told them to exit the office, and requested the sheriff come “stand guard.”..."
