"...It's outlandish, of course, but that's the fun of it, and against all odds, it works. When a beautiful San Francisco-based adventurer by the name of Ursula (Mann) finds herself tracking the myth of the Great White Ape deep in the heart Africa, she encounters more than she bargained for in the form of George and his plethora of animal friends..."

"...In November, Greg Bolin was hired to do an unenviable task: reassess, edit, and rewrite a masterpiece, Porgy and Bess. And not only did Bolin have to work with George Gershwin's intimidating score; he also had to work with the signature reinterpretations of it by some of America's best known and highly skilled musical artists: Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, Cleo Laine and Ray Charles, and Nina Simone, among others..."
"...Only the last segment, "Clay," seems a bit sketchy, as though it might benefit from a longer running time. In terms of the subject matter – interactions between robots and humans – Pak has few ideas that haven’t already been covered by everyone from Isaac Asimov to George Lucas..."

"...In all the current fuss over Wendy Davis, Greg Abbott and their ilk, you may have missed the announcement of yet another candidate for governor of Texas. George James "Rattlesnake" Ramsey, it turns out, is also running for governor, and in order to do so is "establishing the Constitutional Labor Party, to represent those people who work for their money."..."

"...All Gregory George wanted was some peace and quiet. In 2013, the 41-year-old former Texas General Land Office agent and his wife Staci bought a 10.8-acre plot just outside of Dripping Springs, in a development protected by residential-only deed restrictions..."
"...Groove may well prove to be a watershed moment in the history of this particular subculture. Just as George Lucas' American Graffiti and Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused aimed to illuminate those director's formative subcultures, so too does Harrison's film turn a blue-gelled IntelliBeam on the scene and speak to one particular moment in the ongoing history of American youth movements..."

"...Not a bad idea at all, frankly, and for much of the time, the film cleverly ratchets up the dread level via an series of ill-lit, jittery encounters between the known and the unknown, the drooly, growly infected and their soon-to-be drooly victims. It's also more than a little like George Romero's Diary of the Dead but less self-aware, ironic, and cheerlessly fun..."

"...She credited the specific passage to her lawyer, then said, “That’s a good question. I’d have to think on that.” Rogers cared rather less for the question, and initially responded that he’d been “reading [our] publication for four decades, and I’m not illiterate.” He continued that “it’s obvious” we’re far left, “certainly further left than any other publication in town.” Pressed to describe at least one Chronicle position that he defines as “far left,” he finally mentioned presidential endorsements – specifically citing George McGovern and Walter Mondale...."
"...It's an almost entirely acoustic affair. Live, his sound was filled in with electric guitar, bass (by local George Reiff), and drums but resulted in a few too many shuffles that grew tiresome...."
"...JOHNNY BUSH: Even if Willie Nelson had never recorded "Whiskey River," Johnny Bush would still be one of the country music composers, more on par with George Jones or Ray Price than with the latter-day cosmic cowboys. Bush is revered by both the purists and the pretenders, and when this man donned a black hat more than 30 years ago, he never took it off..."
"... Greg BeetsMONTE WARDEN8:30pm, Austin Music Hall Monte Warden always had that platinum song in him. Warden's been an odds-on local favorite ever since he was a rockabilly teen, and last year the gamble paid off when George Strait recorded his and Bruce Robison's wistful "Desperately." Live, Warden's love of Buddy Holly is No..."
"...This isn't, strictly speaking, a Carl Perkins album. It's more like an episode of The Larry Sanders Show, stocked like a catfish pond with A-list guest stars: John Fogerty, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Paul Simon, George Harrison, Bono, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, and Paul McCartney..."

"...THE PILOT SHIPS: Two members of Austin's Monroe Mustang collaborate with Brian McBride (Stars of the Lid) and Cheree Jetton (bees are black) to create a aural palette that's intensely atmospheric yet driven by a solemn, passionate melodic thrust. At their first live gig since 1998, they'll showcase their brilliant The Limits of Painting and Poetry, which features the centerpiece to the score of acclaimed indie film George Washington..."
"...Doug Sahm FREESTYLERS: Voted the best live band by Melody Maker, it's hard to imagine how much better things could get than on the Freestylers debut, We Rock Hard, which combines elements of hip-hop, Detroit techno, and gobs of old-skool beats. This might very well be the showcase to catch if you're interested in music that will do for your sense of fun what hair extensions did for George Clinton..."

"...That's right, aside from a series of shows a year or so ago featuring Will Sexton, the Borrower's Nina Singh and Mark Addison have played as Kitty Gordon just once pre-SXSW -- six days earlier, also at Steamboat. But whereas the Sexton incarnation was merely a side project, this Kitty Gordon is all about Singh, Addison, and the duo's phenomenally written pop songs (showcase backing came from bassist George Reiff, drummer JJ Johnson, and two keyboard players, Stewart Cochran and "special guest" Tony Scalzo of Fastball)..."

"...The reasons why it would attract less attention are obvious -- the Observer's subscriber base of about 5,000 is substantially less than the hundreds of thousands who read the Monthly. It's also unfortunate -- ultimately, the left-leaning Observer's political coverage is more thoughtful and relevant than the Neiman-Marcus-targeted fare of TexMo, and we certainly think Dubose's take on George Bush's presidential race is more on-target and substantial than Paul Burka's has been for his magazine...."
"...Davis was aware of at least some of this. He also picked up influences, heard on his fusion recordings, of Charles Lloyd, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, and Sly Stone, evolving toward Bitches Brew step by step; on '68's Miles in the Sky, Davis had Hancock play a Fender Rhodes electric piano, employed George Benson on electric guitar, and used some R&B rhythms, while Filles de Kilimanjaro, also '68, featured Hancock and Chick Corea playing electric piano, and '69's In a Silent Way boasts three electric pianists and rock-influenced guitarist John McLaughlin..."
