Page Two: Grand Illusions
The only problem with wide-ranging, all-encompassing conspiracy theories is that they're wrong
Columns  July 6, 2007, by Louis Black
"...Given that, how could this administration pull off such a complicated conspiracy as 9/11? Since the plan was to invade Iraq, why weren't any of the hijackers Iraqi? If these questions seem obvious, most conspiracy theorists would contend that just shows how brainwashed we all are – that these actions are all part of the master plan for New World Order aimed at creating war, hatred, chaos, and confusion in the world, allowing them to exit the shadows and take control...."

SB 1031: The new exams
News Story  June 29, 2007, by Richard Whittaker
"...In grades ninth through 12th, students will take "end-of-course" exams, a term replacing the old and unwieldy "secondary exit-level assessment exercises." Students will take a total of three exams in each of four core subject areas: English I, II, and III; algebra I and II and geometry; biology, chemistry, and physics; and world geography, world history, and United States history.

The stalwart defenders of Barton Springs reorganize in face of court loss.
DAILY News  April 10, 2007, by Wells Dunbar
"... SOS Alliance’s appellate attorney, Renea Hicks, comments, “It is not easy to pick out the worst thing about what’s happened in this case, but I’d nominate the court decision forcing a non-profit group, which has been instrumental in protecting the Hill Country and Austin from the ravages of money-driven private development, to fork over three hundred thousand dollars to cover the attorney fees of the MUD’s developers.” Weldon Ponder, the Alliance’s bankruptcy attorney adds, "The reorganization case we have filed today in the Austin Bankruptcy Court will enable the Alliance to carry on with its important work while we seek court approval of a financial plan that will give equitable treatment to all parties having an interest in this matter. We are confident we will be able to accomplish that goal and exit the bankruptcy process in a few months with an approved plan that will be fair to everyone involved, including the judgment creditor." -30-..."

Austin Wranglers Host Nashville Kats Saturday
DAILY Sports  March 23, 2007, by Jeremy Martin
"... If the Kats were going for a badass misspelling, they quite obviously would've been better off with "Catz" or even better "Xatz" or best of all "XXXatzzz." Now those are incorrectly spelled names that would put a shrivel in the other teams' jockstraps. The cutesy Kats spelling makes you think the team's mascot would look like a differently abled version of Snagglepuss ("I pooped the bed again – exit stage left, even.") You'd be wrong, of course..."

The Trailer Park Boys: Seasons 1 & 2
Alliance Atlantis released the show's collected episodes season by season last year without frills or fanfare, but even without extras, they're worth discovering
Screens Review  March 23, 2007, by Marrit Ingman
"...Alliance Atlantis, $55.99 Officially unknown to the pages of this publication until the midnight premiere of their eponymous film at South by Southwest, the Trailer Park Boys have entranced Canadians – and whoever caught it on BBC America – with their weirdly low-key, documentary-style ensemble show since 2001. Alliance Atlantis released the show's collected episodes season by season last year without frills or fanfare, but even without extras, they're worth discovering, preferably from the beginning, as best friends Julian (John Paul Tremblay) and Ricky (Robb Wells) exit the Van Allen Correctional Centre after 18 months and return to Sunnyvale, the Nova Scotia trailer park of their shared miscreant youth..."

Review: The Green Room
DAILY SXSW  March 11, 2007, by Marrit Ingman
"...What's it like in Room 19A (or is it 19B), the extremely well-hidden lair for panelists awaiting deployment? Nobody's huddled on the floor around the available outlets, for one thing. There's a TV that isn't even on. But it's the little touches--the abstract sculpture, the potted plants, the tiny Perrier--that makes a visitor sad to leave through the back exit and travel deep into the bowels of the Convention Center, only to emerge on a different floor in some far-flung arm of the building...."

"...Not so amusing was Kinky Friedman's ignominious exit from "politics" – a word that always appeared in his campaign as if between sneer quotes, like reflexive Republican contempt for "government." Tuesday night, Friedman angrily refused to concede, declaring instead he might form a "shadow government" (see "Kinky Says Farewell," p.26). Although he was always an extreme long shot, Friedman seems to have convinced himself that he was actually going to win – and was thereupon shocked and insulted that nearly 90% of his fellow Texans were so ungrateful as to reject his gift of Himself, the Good Shepherd..."

Psycho Beach Party
Prairie Oyster Productions' staging of 'Psycho Beach Party' is trashy, but it's meant to be: a campy, albeit loving, send-up of all things beach, all things Sixties, and all things Hitchcockian

"...On a set that ranges across a good part of the Yard at the Vortex and consists of a beach shack covered in palm fronds and tiki carvings and a stage smothered in fine grain sand and backed with large tie-dyed pieces of fabric, Andrew Kastning as Nicky, a well-built, sandy-haired young man dressed appropriately in beach attire, enters and sits beside an armless mermaid perched atop a lifeguard stand.

Music Story  August 4, 2006, by Audra Schroeder
"...The reunited Os Mutantes were the buzz of the weekend, and the fact that most of the people in the crowd weren't even born when the Brazilian trio originally began shaping its Tropicalia psych in the Sixties didn't stop random explosions of Woodstock-style dance. Featuring original brothers Sérgio Dias and Arnaldo Baptista, but minus Rita Lee, the Mutantes got all Godspell on us, plowing through the Caetano Veloso-penned, bittersweet "Baby" and fevered "Cantor de Mambo." (Highlight of the night: seeing fellow festival performer Devendra Banhart shirtless and ecstatically clutching a bottle of Maker's Mark during "Baby.") Closer "A Minha Menina," one of the few songs they sang in Portuguese, was an obvious choice, though the crowd was already heading toward the exit..."
