"...A classic example is Errol Morris' Fast, Cheap & Out of Control, with The Endless Summer, Pumping Iron, and Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey also popping quickly to mind. So, if surfing, bodybuilding, or mole rats can commandeer souls and spawn whole new schools of philosophy, why not a publicity stunt staged by a small-town car dealer? That's the premise of S.R..."
"...Stopped where Hemingway said to stop – best advice he ever gave, to stop when you know what happens next so you can pick it up again with that momentum. I might have pushed on, but my body said, "STOP, lest we get dizzy and fall from the chair."..."
"...Instead, the chrome .22 resurfaced just two nights later, in the early-morning hours of June 3. It was lying on the ground, roughly 30 feet from Kevin Brown's dead body in the courtyard of the apartment complex behind Chester's..."
"...That had never happened to me in my life. That was the moment I knew there might be something serious going on." As the whole left side of his body became numb and he started vomiting up his lunch, Robert made two phone calls: one to his brother Ric and one to 911..."
"...I own original works, sure, but also multiples from various folks, low-print-run minicomics, and other kinds of print and material culture ephemera. There are a lot of things driving this, but fundamentally, things bind you to moments in time, to time itself, to the fact that you too are a material body and a thing that is subject to time..."
"...I mean the whole emotional thing and the way the two bodies fit together. Who designed that? What a brilliant idea! And, on LSD, I began to think of everything as an idea – somebody’s idea, something’s idea, God’s idea, of course..."
"...You are not alone. In this moment you are safe." Chorus voices are stationed in the audience, and Spirit/Dancers embody the stories in the center of the stage...."
"...Irish director Billy O'Brien said, "We were a week late getting the DCP over. We were desperately trying to finish it in time, so nobody had seen it."..."
"...A lot of performers take it for granted: "Oh, it’s just what I do, I was raised in it." They don’t push hard enough, and their acts are often substandard in my opinion because they can get away with it. Somebody coming from the outside, they have to prove themselves..."
"...The crime was a parent's worst nightmare -- Bertha was in her neighborhood playing with some friends when she went off with a couple who said they needed help looking for their lost dog. Her battered and bruised body was found many days later in a small shack not far from her home...."
"...On Sunday, the objective was less participatory: just to witness what was happening, to crowd the House spectator gallery with opponents of the bill, and to “literally stare them down” when the Republican lawmakers entered the chamber, as an organizer from Planned Parenthood put it. Chanting and cheering were discouraged; silent displays of support – American Sign Language applause – were encouraged, as were just physically placing your orange-clad body in a seat in the Gallery...."
"...And proms are as much a part of what it means to be a teenager as malls and McDonald's. Whether you hated it, adored it, or tried to ignore it -- everybody has a prom story...."
"...This is hot enough to vaporize sodium from rock salt or baking soda. Baking soda is dissolved in water, then sprayed into the kiln, where the sodium in the vapor combines with the silica in the clay body or glaze to create a sodium-silicate glaze..."
"...He felt invincible again. He felt like a private charging into his first battle, his spirit banging on the back of his teeth as adrenaline surged through every fraction of his body...."
"..."He'll walk in looking too frail to play, but when he sits behind the drums, everything changes," says Skiles. "Whatever ignites him comes from somewhere other than his body..."
"...Harvey – instrumental in the creation of Hard Rockin' Woman! – it's apparent she's being modest about her keyboard mastery. Her boogie-woogie chops are brutal, driving, Lewis playing with every part of her body..."
"...Consumer electronics companies spend enormous amounts of money to bring products to market, and while bootstrappers can often do so at a fraction of the cost, there's still a ton of money involved. Between design costs, injection molding the physical body, manufacturing the chips, and paying a staff competitive tech industry salaries, the overhead is huge, and any unexpected production problem can cripple a project..."
"...Whatever he's saying, you want to believe it. "Trust me," he says, and you feel you can, even as every cell in your body screams at you that you shouldn't..."
"...Ah, dose were de days, don't you know, ah yiss dey were dat, so dey were, ah yiss. Now, a course in dem days, nobody owned a tellyphone achall, achall, ah shure, God bless ya dey're quare wans, de yeller men, ah yiss, but God bless da lotta dem anyhow and yerself, ay-men..."
"...photograph by Isabel Taylor The evening put a whole new spin on that old sports cliché "snatching victory from the jaws of defeat." It's April Fool's Day at the Travis County Expo Center, but nobody feels much like joking. The El Paso Buzzards are taking it to the Ice Bats, drubbing a suddenly inferior -- as well as injured, old, flu-ridden and unfocused -- Austin hockey club in game six of a first-round playoff series..."
"...Reposa is a DWI attorney alleged by many colleagues to be one of the best in the region. He's also a jerk – self-aggrandizing and excessively confident, the kind of guy who'll deride a publication as an "entertainment weekly" while simultaneously asking for legitimate press, or go onto YouTube intoxicated beyond repair to slather oil over his nearly naked body and talk smack about how much better he is at defending DWI clients than his colleagues..."
"...It's a violent, brutally invasive crime that can rob victims of their sense of self and worth. It's often physically – as well as mentally – damaging, causing the penetrated body parts to rip, tear, and bleed..."
"...Paul Scheer: I was a big fan of Childrens Hospital and everybody on the show. I’d done some episodes with those guys, and I thought, “This is the best thing, to be able to do a 15-minute show on Adult Swim.” In the back of my head I always had this idea to do a 24-type show..."
"...They were terrified of the fact that it was about suicide, that it was a downer of a film. We got a lot of, 'We really love it, but downer films don't do very well.' So nobody would touch it..."
"..."It's just wrong that you can come up at the very last minute and change the boundaries of the zoning case and invalidate the petition without any time for the public to react," she said. "It is a clear manipulation of the process." Alter also had concerns about the way traffic safety was handled, a huge issue for the neighborhood and one she said points to a hole in the process: "Our mechanisms for evaluating the zoning cases don't allow us to factor in safety before somebody dies." She raised hope that CodeNEXT will help address some of those problems and calm the distrust many residents have in how city processes treat residents..."
"...It was all silent. St. James' body was pulled from the car..."
"...Saturday's keynote speech, which features Six Apart's Mena Trott; Arianna Huffington; Caroline Little of WashingtonPost.com and Newsweek Interactive; and blogger Grace Davis, organizer of grassroots organization Hurricane Katrina Direct Relief, is brought to us by Johnson's, which is launching a blog directory for mothers. General Motors has brought its three new Saturn models, which are available outside for test drives, and swag bags of Crabtree & Evelyn body wash and lotion..."
"..."It's so central, so easy, and so close to everybody," she nods. "I had some of the old Austinite pride of looking at the rental prices in this area and being like, 'No fucking way, I used to live on the corner for $650.' With my current situation, getting a bigger house with more acreage would be so much more for me to navigate and clean and maintain, so I'd rather spend the money on convenience, accessibility, and close proximity to the community."..."
"...There were duck jokes and duck puns a-plenty. The galleries are filled with animal images and recycled body parts..."
"...All throughout shooting, we see Justin's carpal tunnel getting progressively worse, but it's still a powerful moment when we reveal that he's been shut down by his own body. Justin had a picture of himself on his front page holding his bandaged hands in the air..."
"...And the reason is, for the most part, that it's not very real. It's pretty tough to buy off on somebody singing about a soft drink."..."
"...Asleep forever! He stayed put on the phoneline, half-blinded and probably knowing he was finally about to die and being completely stupid. It took nearly twenty minutes of pumping pellets into his motionless body to get it all out of me..."
"...They hate the coward in order to hate the part of themselves that they fear will weaken and endanger them. (It is, after all, very hard to be brave.) And so America is disgusted and frightened at its President giving into his lusts and endangering the body politic..."
"...well, I must have been dying. But my family and the doctors, and even my skinny fever-wracked body, all seemed then, and in memory seem now, like figures in a dream..."
"...Unidentified concussions, such as the one or two additional concussions Baran estimates he’s suffered along with his two diagnosed injuries, don’t make it into these studies, and the threat of the body receiving impacts while the brain is concussed looms...."
"...Rivera is a former narc, Cavuto is the stereotypical tough cop, except that he's also gay. Their first break is when a body is found near Jody and Tommy's place, with Tommy's copy of On the Road clutched in its hands..."
"...Austin ISD is a very special place. There are more than 10,000 special-education students in the district that's 12% of the student body, or about two per classroom..."
"...He did. He took it back to his laboratory, and, applying those Music History courses taught at Harvard, classes in electronic music, those years of private piano and composition lessons, he came up with, well, something with the head of a Wild Magnolias tune and the body of a cyborg..."
"...However, this seems to be a conscious decision by Devlin to emphasize the surprisingly grueling nature of the multi-round elimination slam “tournament” the story is built around. Like Rob Bindler's Hands on a Hard Body, this is a movie you can enjoy whether or not you have any personal investment in the specific cultural milieu it portrays..."
"...Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Alexie Gilmore, Woody Harrelson, Jeffrey Nordling, Sarah Wright, Scott Glenn and Willie Nelson. From Hands on a Hard Body to an 89-minute ogling of another hard body: It boggles the mind that 11 years after his engrossing documentary about an endurance competition to win a truck in Longview, Texas, filmmaker Bindler has channeled his talents into this regrettable comedy starring McConaughey in board shorts and nothing else (and occasionally even less, as in a tongue-in-cheek – remember the bongos? – cutaway to an in-the-buff McConaughey blowing a didgeridoo)..."
"...Take "Hands on a Hardbody" contest veteran Benny Perkins, the most memorably outspoken subject of S.R. Bindler's 1997 documentary Hands on a Hard Body..."
"...First Position follows six international hopefuls, ages 10 to 17, as they tackle first the semifinals, held around the world, and then the New York-based finals of the Grand Prix, where the world’s leading dance schools and companies gather to watch – and grade – their technique, musicality, personality, and body shape. The stakes are shockingly high: First prizes come with scholarships and contracts to the American Ballet Theatre, the Paris Opera Ballet, and other top-tier dance outfits..."
"...Before the accident, Paul was falling for an older woman and single mother named Annette (a luminous Patricia Clarkson); that antique chest is her ex-husband’s, and what a release when she smashes it up in the front lawn. Annette’s daughter Sam (Stewart) plays with the boy next door, Jake (House), but he’d rather play with his sister’s Barbie doll, who communicates with Jake in hushed, seductive coos – weird, yes, but also an inspired way of giving voice to the sexual confusion of puberty – and who would have thought that when that plastic doll is finally silenced it would feel like a death? These families’ stories continue to intertwine in surprising ways, most especially in a Hands on a Hard Body-like subplot involving Paul’s grieving mother (Close) and Jake’s so-very-very-close-to-meltdown father (Mulroney), contestant and coach in an endurance contest..."
"...The three men’s individual and joint stories wondrously unfold, sometimes catching you off-guard with a couple of surprising turns that provide the movie with meatier drama than you might anticipate at the outset. (Think maybe Hands on a Hard Body or The King of Kong.) Getting to the top of the world isn’t easy, not to mention further complications that stack the odds against the ambitious trio...."
"...Their independence, their vision, is very much in line with the best filmmaking ever to come out of the state. That's something that nobody else can replicate..."
"...2. Hands on a Hard Body (28)..."
"...Altman at the end A fictional take on S.R. Bindler's 1997 documentary Hands on a Hard Body was on the fast track when Robert Altman died, with an early 2007 start to filming planned..."
"...That would be the Austin world premiere of S.R. Bindler's documentary Hands on a Hard Body at the Dobie Theatre..."
"...HANDS ON A HARD BODY..."
"...Speaking of filmic transitions, Holden Payne, manager at Landmark's Dobie Theatre, has sent word that after three calendar years, 80 weeks, and more than 50,000 paying customers (and you know how small those theatres are), S.E. Bindler's brilliant documentary Hands on a Hard Body is finally, regretfully, coming to a close on Thu., Jan..."
