Extra Jim
Guitarist, producer, and now indie label impresario Jim Stringer is still twanging after all these years.
Music Story  April 20, 2001, by Jim Caligiuri

Film Review  December 17, 2004, by Kimberley Jones
"...More conventionally cast, but no less impressive, are Browning and Aiken, who anchor the film with their big eyes, Dickensian plight, and contemporary pluck. The biggest huzzahs, however, must go to production designer Rich Heinrichs and art directors John Dexter and Martin Whist, who have worked with Tim Burton in the past..."

DAILY Books  January 27, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner

Charlie Burton & the Texas 12-Steppers
Saxon Pub, August 3

Music Review  August 10, 2001, by Christopher Gray
"...Charlie Burton & the Texas 12-SteppersSaxon Pub, August 3 Charlie Burton has been looking for love in all the wrong places. Unlucky have been HEB, site of "Wishful Thinking," and Eckerd, where he wanders the aisles ruminating "I Wonder, Is Propecia Right for Me?" (Women's names and hair-replacement drugs sound more alike every year.) Shopping for DVDs, he finds himself lusting after a new acquaintance "Even as We Speak." Then there's the unfortunate fate of his fellow Jenny Jones guest in the new song, "Reunited With a Girl I Haven't Seen for 15 Years," similar -- in fact, exactly so -- to that of another bad bitch in Johnny Cash's "Cocaine Blues." Burton is such a cult figure even his fans are too cool to come out to his shows..."

No Law & Order
Music Story  March 11, 1999
"...Last year, Tommy Tutone was making nostalgia with a capital "N" at Bob Popular after Austin's annual Prom. With showcases heavily weighted toward the locals, Wednesday nights are a good opportunity to support some of the best talent in Austin, from the ultra-wry country witticisms of Charlie Burton, to the chaotic pop brilliance of Daniel Johnston, Ed Hall-sized stomp of Pong, exotic desert rhythms of 1001 Nights Orchestra, and the always affecting songcraft of Ana Egge (see "SXSW Record Reviews")..."

Film Review  June 6, 1997, by Marc Savlov
"...Brief homages and references to King Kong, Mighty Joe Young, Bringing Up Baby, and even Planet of the Apes pop up at odd moments, but this is, above all, a family affair, and quite a humdrum one at that, even for kids. Such being the case, it's now my fervent hope that director Thompson reunites with Tim Burton to create something of at least passable interest to those of us with a taste for the sublime, if not the simian...."
