"...Carl's Corner: Dancing Frogs, exit 374, I-35 East, north of Hillsboro. Originally called Six Frogs Over Texas, it was done for the Tango nightclub in Dallas which was owned by a relative of the owner of Six Flags Over Texas amusement park..."
"...Before we exit Studio2Gallery's elegant little venue, we cast our eyes again upon Doug Russell's large pair of graphite-on-paper works: Entanglement 1 and Entanglement 2. These are subtle, compelling illustrations of entwined roots that fairly writhe as metaphors for one human condition or another..."
"...Actually, I wanted to see Dave Matthews Saturday, but when the rain started up again after Levon Helm’s sensational set, I headed for the exit...."
"...If your only exposure to Japanese director Yoshihiro Nakimura's oeuvre has thus far been his work in the classic J-horror vein via Dark Water, this hyper-melodic paeon to obscurantist punk rock and the whims of fate, destiny, and three chords and the truth will enter your skull at 170 BPM and exit your heart doing at least twice that...."
"...Exit walloping drum deity Aynsley Dunbar, enter Jean-Luc Ponty vet Steve Smith. Beyond the high rotation bump 'n' grind of "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'" and Rolie-leavened "Just the Same Way," even the return of Infinity knobber Roy Thomas Baker (Queen) can't stem the material erosion sliding headlong into album five's sophomore slump..."
"..."Ask me bastard if I'm signed, I rhyme sick But niggas is quick to turn they back on spitters with clits Hit 'em with this, and ridiculous phrase flow that exit my lips Hey, yo, I mean my face, though They still want chicks with tits and ass out My respect is worth more than your advance cash-out."..."
"...By the end of the volley, Sanders sat slumped forward in the back seat of the car, blood dripping from an exit wound in the front of his head, and Smith lay facedown on the pavement, crying out with a wailing moan thick with fear. (Smith survived.) His voice is soon joined by a chorus of residents' cries and screams. Four Silent Seconds..."
"..."So the senior employee/junkie tells him that if he wants to rent the movie, that was fine, but we'd have to set him up with a membership, we'd need to see an ID and either proof of local address or a credit card, and, of course, homeless guy is hearing none of that. He made this motherfuckin' movie, and, by god, he was going to exit the store with it...."
"...In his own words: "We honor our legacy, but our eyes are on the current and future needs of our clients and the community as we continue to battle a fierce and evolving epidemic. I've always hoped that I would have the good sense to exit gracefully from the agency when the time was right..."
"...He put Watergate in perspective early on, drawing disparate pieces of the puzzle together so that Americans could understand it. He correctly assessed Vietnam as "a quagmire" and may have hastened our exit as a result..."
"...7) If you are touting your afterparty swag bags as "sick", have something, anything, to hand us entitled floozies as we enter/exit. If your deliveries fell through, or your dog ate them the night before, make the effort to have something besides palms-in-the-air apologies for your guests..."
"...With a few key strokes on a computer, towers on major routes would keep airheads from trying to talk and drive, thereby speeding up the commute. If someone wants to call emergency services, they would only have to exit and the signal would return off ramp...."
"...Not that there aren't bigger wastes of time that are Excel related. Till then, Excit challenges you to get the cursor from its starting point to the exit using only the arrow keys..."
"...The Forbidden Gardens is located at 23500 Franz Rd., about a mile north of I-10 at the Grand Parkway exit west of Houston in Katy. You can visit Friday through Sunday from 10am to 3:30pm, with tours at 11am, noon, 1, 2, and 3pm..."
"...I wasn’t great at making records at first. I don’t have records I’m ashamed of, but I didn’t know enough to exert more of my own influence and didn’t know how to say what I wanted and demand what I wanted when I was making Guitar Town and Exit 0 and even Copperhead Road..."
"...As it turns out, the gingerly worded press release didn't accurately represent what happened. "I'm disappointed that the new chamber leadership decided to mischaracterize my exit," said Flannigan on Tuesday..."
"..."I'm disappointed that the new chamber leadership decided to mischaracterize my exit. My commitment to this community remains strong," said now ex-AGLCC president Flannigan...."
"...Winsor McCay's fanciful strip Little Nemo in Slumberland made the jump to real-movement as well. And one thing these early cartoons had in common with the parallel emergence of motion pictures was a whimsical penchant for exiting reality, leaving the cobbles and gutters behind for airships, dreamworlds, and seeking a vantage point far above reality..."
"...According to police, Smith, who had been sleeping in the front passenger seat, woke up and bolted from the car. Police say that when Smith exited the car, he lunged toward Quintana, and the officer shot him, also in the chest...."
"...Some groups traveled from overseas for the gig, while others had merchandise stolen, and most local acts, including industrialists Tungsten Coil, Hipnautica, and Lucid Dementia, went uncompensated. Following November's World United Music Festival in San Marcos and Austin's Exit Fest last July, this marks the third time in less than a year that such an event proved ill-advised..."
"...Over smoky piano standout "The Party," Annie Clark purrs: "I lick the ice cube from your empty glass. Oh, we stayed much too late, 'til they're cleaning the ashtrays." Meanwhile, she keeps an "eye on the exit sign, steady now." As on her 2007 debut, Marry Me, the former Texan is looking for a way out of her song, though she makes interesting conversation while there..."
"...It's true: There are no parallels or precursors to The Room. With characters who enter and exit scenes as though they were auditioning for Seinfeld on acid or who drop narrative bombshells (such as, for instance, cancer) in one sequence only to have the crucial plot point never mentioned again, the wild world of Wiseau is more surrealist masterpiece – unintentional or otherwise – than most critics might like to admit..."
"...Another woman said that Fennell approached a car she was sitting in, had her exit the car, told her that he'd found drugs in the car, backed her into some bushes, and said he wouldn't arrest her if she promised to meet him at her apartment later that night. The woman called her mother, who then called police to complain..."
"...Leave it to Little Walter Jacobs (1930-1968) to take care of any other backsides in need of tanning. Drawing mileage from the aforementioned Chess Records biopic, wherein Walter's Oedipal exit from the Muddy Waters band (and Muddy's gal) rocks the film, The Complete Chess Masters (1950-1967) follows up with five CDs' worth of chapter and verse from the harmonica's greatest practitioner..."
"...After all, his heroine is royalty by virtue of being voted Harlem's best beautician, and the challenge to her "crown" comes from a cosmetology competitor, the cheekily named Café Olay. Ellington teasingly introduces Queenie Pie with the sort of grand flourish that precedes a leading character's first aria, only to have her exit without singing, ceding the stage (and most of the first act) to her challenger, who also becomes her rival in romance..."
"...Staying intact is the idea of standardized testing and of disaggregating data; Eissler and Senate Education Committee Chair Florence Shapiro, R-Plano, remain resolute that no school should fail any single ethnic or social group. However, schools will be judged not on one exit exam but instead across a three-year rolling average..."
"...Are you more – or less – willing to vote for Lee Leffingwell because he's been endorsed by Eastside activist Susana Almanza, bigfoot attorney David Armbrust, and Tobe "Chain Saw" Hooper? Does the nod for Carole Strayhorn by former UT System Chancellor Bill Cunningham or Dem kingmaker Lowell Lebermann Jr. make you consider (or reconsider) her candidacy? Will Brewster McCracken's big names among the local filmsters – Richard Linklater, Robert Rodriguez, Tim League – cast you as a Brewster booster or chase you running to the exit?..."
"...TPL recently acquired the land in the Gaines Ranch area to protect it from development and preserve it as open space. (To hike, bike, or jog on nearby trails, use the Gaines Ranch Greenbelt entrance, located on the MoPac Expressway South access road at the Capital of Texas Highway North exit.) The gift is one of a series made by TPL to create the Barton Creek Wilderness Park and expand the greenbelt for public use..."
"...When they stopped, they announced a break, saying Badu had run into some travel problems and they would return shortly. This meant quite a few people headed to the exit thinking she wasn’t showing..."
"...Her life becomes a living hell; her death only promises eternal hell. A great deal of the horror is graphically visceral as eyes and mouths become portals of evil, both as entryways and exit paths..."
"...So happens that I knew a video-game writer at the party and introduced the two. The circle of schmooze was complete, and all I wanted was a shower. The night drew to a close and I remembered the caveat given to me by a friend in line at the entrance: “You’ll also need an exit strategy.” I learned this lesson the hard way and vowed to learn the best ways to get out of awkward conversations at the next gathering..."
"...3) Let patrons go in and out of the venue. Denying exit and entrance rights only makes the patron feel that the venue has an antagonistic assumption about the patron's wants and needs...."
"...yes, Svetlana, the man-eating Slav. We whirled around to see this vision of loveliness exit her Mercedes limo and stride through the door..."
"...Mademoiselles Catherine Deneuve, Jeanne Moreau, and Delphine Seyrig were never so grateful for a Spanish Francophile. The Exterminating Angel (1965) follows Viridiana and makes that sacrilegious dysfunction seem heavenly levelheaded compared to the alternately hilarious and atavistic behavior of the idly tuxedoed and gowned, who become trapped during a house party one evening – in a living room with nothing barring their exit except existential poverty..."
"...I got up to go and my grandfather followed. We went outside and headed towards the exit, taking a slightly longer route to avoid the Ferris wheel..."
"...She takes a first slippered step, climbing the amphitheater steps toward the exit. Each head turns to watch her go, the standing crowd parting to let her leave, the whole house reading the shock of it all on her face..."
"...On Gurf Morlix’s new album, Last Exit to Happyland, he offers up an ode to his late friend with “Music You Mighta Made,” which not only captures the man, but also the lost possibilities that have lingered within Foley’s legacy. To get a better sense of how Blaze was actually received during his lifetime, I dug up this live review from the Chronicle archives..."
"...Despite messieurs David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks having outgrown the Temptations and Smokey Robinson readying his exit from the Miracles; regardless of the Supremes going through the motions post-Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, and Holland-Dozier-Holland; and notwithstanding Martha & the Vandellas down to their last three Motown singles and the Four Tops reduced to covering "MacArthur Park," Detroit's soul brand wasn't about to concede July-December 1971 to the fact that L.A. was quickly becoming its base of operations..."
"...Tonight, I will be announcing my decision to formally exit the race for Austin City Council. This decision has not been easy and was reached after much deliberation, discussion, and self-reflection..."
"..."We were in an aggressive situation that was frightening; we felt like it was the end of the world," he explains. "So if there is a man living in a women's center illegally, against the wishes of the women in the center, and all of the women exit that center, leaving that one guy who barricades himself in and is pissing and pooping on the floor, I think it's totally fine to kick down the door..."
"...military out of Iraq, Grant argues, is inevitable. As exit strategies go, this one would require changing the popular political mindset that equates foreign policy with military strength..."
"...One last thing. When we sit with 136 women in one dorm day room, we sit blocking the fire exits..."
"..."It would be the last time we played together for almost two decades," writes Wild Boy Taylor in his prologue. Duran Duran's millennial reunion, which included a wild night at Austin's Bass Concert Hall, ended no less diva, Taylor again the first to exit the original English fivepiece..."
"...At midnight the traffic ahead is a shining mass of red brake lights. Wreck ahead? No, the red comes from the exit lane in Georgetown..."
"...Ophelia is a terrific blend of simple and complex pleasures: A creepy, synchronized dance that marks the exit of one Ophelia is followed by another unabashedly crowing like a rooster to mark the next day. The electricity of the nunnery scene is balanced by the gals crying, "Fuck yeah!" in unison when Hamlet kisses one of them..."
"...Instead, he opens his mouth and knows not what to say. He stammers out a few pleasantries, then attempts a quick exit..."
"...With a three-tiered stage and triptych of video screens hovering behind them, the Athens, Ga., sextet fulfilled its reputation as one of indie music's most dynamic live shows. Though the throng of fans outside the fenced patch of park stretched down the road as the set began and the corral to exit the makeshift venue was even more clustered, the unconventional setting provided the perfect kind of displaced paradise for the band's alternate reality, a spectacle of androgynous, orgiastic revelry that was part rave, part Bowie-esque art-pop hodgepodge..."
"...Mohawk's outside stage got a strategic workout from the Tel Aviv trio: they played in front of the stage, then to the side of the stage, then it was upstairs to celebrate Yom Kippur, then back downstairs and out the exit into the street for an acoustic set. When an ambulance drove towards Sixth Street with sirens blaring, everyone clapped..."
"...People such as the fierce ensemble of offer-enablers – Beegle again and Hislope and Heather Barfield Cole, Silky Shoemaker, Paul Soileau, Kris Olson, Carlos Treviño, Michelle Flanagan, Taylor Flanagan, Thomas Graves, and Jennifer Underwood – and Jason Amato (lights), Laura Cannon (costume design), and Ann Marie Gordon (set design). All these people, working together with a zeal that's other than funereal to present the complex Casket for only 30 people each night – fewer than fit into one-third of the carpeted dining room through which Meyer and Hislope and I exit...."
