ALEC's corporate backers step away under public scrutiny
News Story  May 4, 2012, by Richard Whittaker
"...Coca-Cola publicly declared that the company was only interested in cutting back on food and business regulation, not unrelated issues like voter ID; McDonald's claimed that its departure was solely a business decision. The most prominent recent exit was the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – although not an actual member, in November 2011 it had pledged $376,635 to ALEC for educational campaigning (shorthand for pushing pro-charter school legislation)..."

Bruises Easily
The Raid opens a can of whupass
Screens Story  March 9, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...You think you've seen this one before: a band of humans trapped in a dilapidated building, their every exit blocked by an army of killers, their numbers dwindling rapidly, their chances for survival presumably nil. And yet for all its seeming familiarity, Welsh-born director Gareth Evans' astonishingly kickass sophomore effort isn't another in the ongoing gush of gutsy riffs on George Romero's "trapped in an enclosed area with the hungry dead" genre but instead a brutal face-off of cops vs..."

FX god Tom Savini makes his SyFy judging debut
DAILY Screens  February 5, 2012, by Richard Whittaker
"...Brea was far too smug, telling the camera "I do chemical warfare and chemical burns as part of my job description." The end result seems half-baked, then she makes the same mistake she made in episode one's foundation challenge – having teeth jutting out from the flesh. The result is what acid queen Neil calls "chipmunk cheeks" and a quick exit...."

The Perry Plunge
Iowa nightmare for Gov. Goodhair, but he carries on
DAILY News  January 4, 2012, by Richard Whittaker
"...Ron Paul: Because you can't say "Ron Paul Revolution" without "evol." Yup, the big winner may be the Texas congressman, who went from 11,841 (9.93%) in 2008 to 26,219 (21.4%) this year. Early exit polls show he performed strongly among younger voters (let's see how far the "legalize weed and end wars" mantra gets him once they start looking at his 'racist newsletter' scandal, his role is spreading the war on Christmas nonsense and other conservative classics.) However, it's an undoubted blow that he had to share the extremist vote with Santorum...."

Aretha Franklin heats up the Moody
DAILY Music  November 16, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Opening with Jackie Wilson’s eternal flame “Higher and Higher,” the Detroit powerhouse was into “Think” by the third song, and 30 minutes in – when she made her trademark early exit (into an black-curtained enclosure onstage ) – the Moody was losing its ever loving mind. Her 20-piece backing band, half of it horns, held the line as Franklin caught her breath and no doubt slipped out of her three-inch heels for 10 minutes, but when both halves were reunited the song selection devolved into a mixture of new and lesser known material...."

Outside City Hall, crowds gather; inside City Hall, clouds form
News Column  October 7, 2011, by Wells Dunbar
"...The Hustle is sympathetic to the messages of breaking the global financial choke hold our unelected financial elites have on the globe, and also to the protesters and their as-yet-uncrystallized message. As Salon blogger Glenn Greenwald wrote: "There's substantial value even in those protests that lack 'exit goals' and 'messaging strategies' and the rest of the platitudes from Power Point presentations by mid-level functionaries at corporate conferences..."

The Antlers
Music Story  September 16, 2011, by Melanie Haupt
"...The Antlers' emotionally devastating full-length Hospice (2009), the band's debut as a trio as opposed to frontman Peter Silberman's solo act under that same moniker, left the Brooklyn threesome with a lot to live up to. To that end, Silberman and company revisit certain aural territory, like deploying the same interstitial techniques, dreamy murmurs bridging the mildly aggressive "French Exit" and the contemplative "Parentheses" in an attempt to strike a balance between electronica and a song-sound emotional wallop..."

Some Enchanted Evenings
Improvising wonderlands at the Hideout
DAILY Arts  September 14, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Chihiro in the bathhouse of the gods.A young girl lost in some realm of dreams,beset by strange horrors, aided by kind strangers,making her way through a tangle of unexpected wonders.Hell, that last paragraph could be a description of someone attempting improv comedy for the first time.Luckily for the audiences at Spirited, the lively troupe conjuring these fables from nothing have been plying their performative trade for years and are directed by Asaf Ronen and Marc Majcher at the Hideout on Congress – in Downtown Austin, of course, although who knows what changes may have occurred in reality’s tenuous fabric by the time you exit the theatre? “I generally prefer stories that are realistic,” says Menelaos Prokos, one of the show’s talented cast, “but I guess the thing I enjoy the most about Spirited is the element I normally choose to stay clear of: I like how we create imaginary worlds, how we can be anything we choose to. Not just anybody, but anything..."

Changing Course
AISD shifts to community-based model for prepping younger kids for college
News Story  September 9, 2011, by Richard Whittaker
"...STAAR is in many ways a throwback to the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills, the testing system in place before TAKS was introduced in 2003. Like STAAR, TAAS depended on end-of-course testing, which Larson said he prefers to TAKS' end-of-school exit exams "because it actually measured what I did that year, as opposed to relying on years' worth of previous instruction before the student ever set foot in my class." However, that means getting students and teachers up to speed on the new structure: "Now a ninth-grade test is high stakes for these students, whereas it was just 11th grade in the past." Even more worryingly, Larson said, the Texas Education Agency "hasn't given us what the scoring system is yet." So far, little is known beyond jargon: There will be a minimum acceptable score, a minimum passing score, and a minimum advanced score..."

All Over Creation: Follow What Leader?
It's a new era for Arthouse and AMOA, but who will guide them through it?
Arts Column  September 9, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...So with Graze and Friis-Hansen gone, will Arthouse and AMOA (or whatever their fusion turns out to be) retain the character they developed during the Downtown Era? It's the same query being posed about Apple since Steve Jobs announced his exit. That's because we like to associate the character of an organization with the person leading it, and I'd argue that's even more true in the arts than in commerce..."

God Dethroned
Music Review  August 26, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"..."For a Nihilist, nothing is at least something," declares God Dethroned commandant Henri Sattler on the Dutch vets' website. "2011 is [our] final year in existence." Nine full-lengths in 20 years, peaking with previous disc Passiondale (Passchendaele), disqualify GD's exit as premature, and despite so many recorded career highs demanding a sequel never delivered, Under the Sign of the Iron Cross cannonades virtually on par with its predecessor..."

DAILY Music  June 5, 2011, by BettySoo
"...As it turns out, we were crashing a party for a large senior choir who had just finished performing a string of concerts, singing a mix of classical pieces and select works of Queen (have you seen Young at Heart?).

Postmarks  May 25, 2011
"...While I enjoy frequenting a couple of shops in the complex, I dread the poor traffic flow and the lack of parking. However, over the past week or so, there haven’t been long lines struggling to exit onto the MoPac frontage road because an Austin Police cruiser has been sitting with lights on in the nearest lane, enabling those leaving to merge right onto the road, regardless of the day or time..."

A beautiful display of footwear cobbled as if from bark, moss, foliage, and fungus
Arts Review  April 8, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Those are just some of the works on display in this beautiful one-woman show by Brooklyn's Michelle Mayer. Shoes for Departure, they're called, and we reckon the departure is one of back-to-nature, an exit fully ratified by situational ethics, because nature, abetted by the artist, has made the first move: Mayer's invaded the tony interiors of the Workman Gallery with wild, wild woods...."

Notes on an Englishman
Screens Review  April 1, 2011, by Kimberley Jones
"...Leigh takes a cue from the G&S playbook – those "low burlesques," as Broadbent's Gilbert describes his life's work – with comic patter and spry pacing (no Victorian stuffed-shirtedness here), while entirely skipping on conventional story arcing. The routine tack, when dramatizing the conception and rehearsal of a stage show, would be to build to opening night and then exit stage left to thundering applause (or cut to black on a triumphant note)..."

SXSW 2011 Film Reviews
Screens Story  March 18, 2011, by Belinda Acosta
"...Conan O'Brien's Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour took place in the months following his not-so-funny exit from The Tonight Show and is the subject of this wildly entertaining, behind-the-scenes look at the tour's genesis and creation. Director Flender's long relationship with O'Brien (they were college buddies) allows him to intimately capture several facets of his subject: angry Conan, charming Conan, mean Conan (who may be the funniest of them all), exhausted Conan, the loving father, and the frenetic workhorse..."

Car-Bike Peace Summit
Postmarks  March 14, 2011
"...Dear Editor, On a recent evening, close to midnight, I was riding my bike south down Metric, crossing an apartment exit/entry driveway. I thought the girl in the car had seen me as I approached, however, she almost hit me as she pulled into the street. Afraid, I yelled some profanities. As I turned my head I saw her in the car, and she looked shaken herself, and she looked like she was very apologetic for what she had inadvertently done. Shortly, she came up beside me in the far lane going the same direction, which I thought was very compassionate. She was going slow and had her window down..."
