J-horror director Nakimura goes punk
DAILY Screens  October 1, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...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..."

Screens Story  May 29, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Winsor McCay's fanciful strip Little Nemo in Slumberland made the jump to real-movement as well.

Striking down the Thunder of Gods Festival
Music Column  May 22, 2009, by Austin Powell
"...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..."

St. Vincent
Music Review  May 8, 2009, by Audra Schroeder
"...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..."

Making 'Room' in the Cult Canon
Tommy Wiseau's so-bad-it's-sublime debut feature
Screens Story  May 1, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...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..."

The woman called her mother, who then called police to complain..."

Little Walter
Music Review  April 24, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"...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..."

Queenie Pie
This Ellington opus may not look much like opera, but it sure swings like the Duke
Arts Review  April 24, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...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..."

Some Reforms Left Behind
Lege looks to account for school accountability

"...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..."

Point Austin: Campaign Trailing
A few notes from the run-up to your own participatory government
News Column  April 3, 2009, by Michael King
"...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?..."

Interacting at Interactive
A social experiment in schmoozing goes a little too well
DAILY SXSW  February 23, 2009, by James Renovitch
"...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..."

The Exterminating Angel
Rules of the Game (1939) played ball and jacks compared to Buñuel's The Exterminating Angel
Screens Review  February 20, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"...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..."

Cold, Cold World
Blaze Foley in his element
DAILY Music  February 9, 2009, by Doug Freeman
"...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..."

The Complete Motown Singles
In Box
Music Review  February 6, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"...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..."

Revolutionary to rat: The uneasy journey of Brandon Darby
News Story  January 23, 2009, by Diana Welch
"..."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..."

This Hamlet seen through the eyes of Ophelia – rather, five Ophelias – is astounding
Arts Review  November 21, 2008, by Avimaan Syam
"...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..."

Of Montreal
Live Shot
Music Review  November 21, 2008, by Doug Freeman
"...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..."

Rubber Repertory's Casket of Passing Fancy makes you 500 offers you can't reuse

"...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...."
