"...But the town’s willing to turn on him now that the Gunslinger has laid siege. This sounds like the Doctor’s bread & butter – righteously staring down an invading force – but when he proposes a quick save and speedy exit from Mercy without engaging with the Gunslinger (he wants to get back to the Tardis in time for classic BBC radio show The Archers, he insists), warning bells go off..."
"...Meanwhile, safety Kenny Vaccaro, who likes to pantomime a Superman-like shirt rip after a big play, more closely resembled another comic book hero, the Invisible Man. Where was he on 3rd and 17 when Ole Miss converted with a 30-yard pass on the way to its first touchdown? Linebacker Jordan Hicks, who injured himself on a horse collar tackle, seemed unsettled before his early exit..."

"...Clever girl, that Oswin, and a good fit for the Doctor, too, sharing in spades two of his most winning qualities: self-sacrifice and a zest for verbal sparring. It was awfully sad to see her go, but we’re guessing she’s coming back in some form or another: Coleman’s already been announced as playing the Doctor’s new companion, after Rory and Amy’s season ending exit...."
"...Two plays turned it around for Texas, enroute to a 37-17 win. After opening with a three-and-out, fast becoming a Texas tradition, the jitterbirds were headed for a second quick exit, but quarterback David Ash sprinted away from a rush on third and long and found Mike Davis over the middle for a first down..."

"...In my eyes this is the worst wetland destruction to happen in Central Texas since I moved here in 1991. There are gasoline storage tanks on top of a historic spring, but the city will get another 20 trees to replace the ones that lived for hundreds of years so peacefully at the I-35 and Yarrington exit..."
"...During that interview, he railed against a laundry list of things in Austin theatre that offended him, but his own production was a juvenile sketch show with little substance besides a few clever lines of dialogue – another one of those jokes that worked better in his head than aloud. He followed it with a production of the Jean-Paul Sartre classic No Exit – a curious decision given his statements about the staidness of the producing choices in Austin..."

"...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)..."

"...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..."
"...We lived so far out of town, the road into my subdivision was a one-lane shell road and horny toads ran free in the vacant lots. Today, Sabo Road has its own exit off the Sam Houston Tollway and horny toads are on license plates...."
"...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...."
"...And, at the same time, exit Miranda. That said, Tara was very lucky herself: Kind of surprising, since her first two costumes (the solo Scarecrow from episode one and her fishy collaboration with Matt last week) were so good) but if an interior decorator left that many streaks you'd want your wall repainting (wow..."
"...The anti-increase crowd was an odd mix of environmentalists, advocates for the poor, church pastors, solar salesmen and supporters, and Republicans, such as Austin Rep. Paul Workman, who was the first to speak and the first to make a bee line for the exit after his testimony..."
"...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...."
"...Speaking of which, after an inglorious exit from Congress, Gingrich parlayed his legislative connections into the lucrative life of a Washington influence peddler, carrying water for such corporate favor-seekers as IBM and Microsoft. Now we learn that he also quietly did chores for mortgage giant Freddie Mac – a firm he had blasted publicly..."
"...As a result, Daywood resigned from the board. (When asked about his exit, Daywood declined to comment, simply saying, "I did not want to dedicate my time and energy on the direction [the association] was going.") Even with these latest events, League extended an olive branch..."
"...ABIA officials advise travelers to get to the airport at least two hours early and note that the security queue for early-morning flights may take as long as 60 minutes.

"...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...."

"...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 following heart of the set explored Panic of Girls, as winningly contemporary as anything half its age. “Love Doesn’t Frighten Me,” “What I Heard,” “China Shoes,” “Wipe My Sweat Off,” and new highlight “Mother” (Bjork does Yoko Ono?) hosted “Maria” from 1999 revival No Exit...."
"...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..."
"...Park rangers have pledged to enforce the statewide burn ban this weekend. According to the Statesman, patrons will be asked to stop smoking or to exit the park to light up, refusal of which could lead to trespassing citations by the Austin Police Department..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...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..."
"...We accomplish these goals using objects as metaphors, and a variety of mediums – video, dance, puppetry, etc. – to allow audience to both enter and exit the play..."
"...Moving to the more-accessible App Store is D7 Games' Teddy Tumble. Throwing a teddy bear into a dryer may be cuteness overload, but the game mechanics are solid with the interface involving little more than spinning the circular levels using gravity to get the otherwise useless plush companion to the exit..."
"..."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..."
"...• The city of Austin last week opened a new enviro-friendly compressed natural gas fueling station at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. Located at 3100½ Spirit of Texas Dr., off the Airport Cargo/Service Entrance exit, the station will be open 24 hours a day for public access...."

"...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?). A friendly choir member chatted us up and urged us to stay and eat, joking we could sing for our supper, but his friend ratted us out to the choir president, and we made a hasty exit...."
"...But Breeze says he looks at it mainly for its use as an easy exit from the neighborhood. As his sister Gail Breeze put it in an email, it's "an important cut-through street to Mrs..."
"...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..."
"...The mechanics consist of uninspired running and jumping, but the real struggle is within the player. Of course, it's a game, and you know that you have to find the finish line, but as the now self-aware game tells you, finding the exit might be the death of it..."
"...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...."
