Five current projects work for Austin-centric synergy
News Column  February 2, 2007, by Katherine Gregor
"...To Austinites dismayed at the failure of White Lodging Corp. (and its development client, Marriott Corp.) to give a damn about what Las Manitas Avenue Cafe represents for Austin, it can seem that every "iconic" place we love is at risk in the current development boom..."

Dancing About Architecture
Dynamite Hack goes prime-time; Atomic Cafe hangs in there; the Old Settler's Music Festival is upon us.

"...Things haven't been running all that smoothly at the Atomic Cafe these days, what with the untimely death of owner Randall Goodwin last November (see tribute at, and I didn't help things a couple of weeks ago by accidentally referring to the club as "Atomic City." (Obviously, it's time for me to break down and treat my feet to some hipster clodhoppers at Prince's actual Atomic City toy and shoe shop at 17th and San Antonio, just to make sure I can keep the two names apart from now on.)

Arts Story  March 31, 2000, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...It doesn't take a rocket scientist, because Wilson is the former artistic director of Zachary Scott Theatre Center, and she's recently finished writing a one-man show to be produced there, and the show is about Buckminster Fuller, the man who invented the geodesic dome, and the woman exiting the car is carrying two complex, multicolored sphere-frames that look exactly like something Bucky would have designed for his grandkids. Who else would be toting such perfect props to a chain-store cafe in the middle of Austin? "To attack this project," says Wilson in the coffeehouse, "to try and comprehend what Bucky was saying and doing with his life ....."

A Living in Art
Nathan Jensen Creates New Frontiers
Arts Story  October 13, 1995
"...By conventional physical laws, that's impossible, but looking at it within Jensen's bizarre perspective, it works. Also, the mural is constructed so that it's impossible to take the whole scene in at once, even when viewing it from its location behind the cafe's back porch to the sidewalk..."
