Playback: David Yow Meets the Jazzus Lizard
David Yow fronts the Jazzus Lizard, Cherubs knock off 22 years of rust, Preston Hubbard dies, and Blind Lemon Jefferson gets kicked off Texas license plates
Music Column  August 25, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...The official rock & roll handbook states: "A famous frontman should never sing in a local tribute act based on his band's music." So what the hell is Jesus Lizard singer David Yow doing fronting the Jazzus Lizard, an Austin quintet that does jazz appropriations of the noise rockers' catalog?..."

"...DEAD PRESIDENTSD: Allen and Albert Hughes; with Larenz Tate, Keith David, Chris Tucker, Freddy Rodreguez, Rose Jackson, N'Bushe Wright. In looking to expand their creative palette beyond the streetwise nihilism of their debut feature, the excellent Menace II Society, the directing team of Allen and Albert Hughes appear to have bitten off more than they can chew with Dead Presidents, an electrifying and occasionally powerful but unfocused work, that despite its many strengths, fails to equal the impact of their previous picture. Set in the late 1960s through the early 1970s, the film chronicles the evolution of 18-year-old Anthony Curtis (Tate) from a freewheeling, happy-go-lucky youngster to a scared 22-year-old Vietnam war veteran who turns to crime after his life has more or less fallen apart..."

"...MOONLIGHT AND VALENTINOD: David Anspaugh; with Elizabeth Perkins, Whoopi Goldberg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kathleen Turner, Jon Bon Jovi. Perhaps it's only because both films are awkwardly titled and share in the presence of Whoopi Goldberg, but Moonlight and Valentino, more than once, brings to mind that other mainstream gal-pal picture of late, Boys on the Side. Certainly, it points out the rarity of commercial films that present male characters as figures existing in the stories' margins (or on the side), as mere plot devices in the narratives of heterosexual women..."

New Kinks “Picture Book”
DAILY Music  January 9, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Disc two divulges a cornucopia of Ray Davies pop lit, from pillow bash “She’s Got Everything” to the timelessly iconoclastic “I’m Not Like Everybody Else.” Three cuts from Something Else precursor Face to Face includes “Rosy Won’t You Please Come Home,” a natural building block to the former smash LP’s “Two Sisters,” “David Watts,” and eternal “Waterloo Sunset.” Brotherly co-write “Death of Clown” realizes a sibling potential otherwise filled by fisticuffs rather than collaboration. Singular pleasures such “Autumn Almanac” complement little-heard buoyancies by both Ray (“Rosemary Rose”) and Dave (“Lincoln County”)..."

Into the Night With Joe Taslim and Timo Tjahjanto
Indonesian action flick The Night Comes For Us pulls no punches
DAILY Screens  October 19, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...Director Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre, Headshot) described the story as about "bad guys who are really bad at doing good stuff, but really good at doing the bad stuff." His approach to the narrative – and its bloody succession of fight scenes – was inspired in part by the interpersonal dynamics of Heat and in part by the ultra-violent US 80s action films like Cobra, early John Woo ("violent characters suddenly showing a spark of over-sentimentality"), the Keith David/Rowdy Roddy Piper scrap in They Live, the sauna fight in Eastern Promises, and the universal amorality of the Grand Theft Auto games.

Fucked Up frontman podcasts from Sherwood
DAILY Music  November 6, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Saturday afternoon’s live taping, attended by roughly 120 festers, featured several unannounced guests including Chris Slorach, bassist for Canadian noise-punk breakouts Metz, who spent his segment recounting the Toronto hardcore scene he and Abraham came up in. David Kelling, disarmingly hilarious singer for fellow SOS performers Culture Abuse, used his time with the talking stick to contend that the Beastie Boys’ debut EP and Rancid’s self-titled 2000 LP are the best hardcore releases ever – superlatives that caused Abraham to express his wholehearted disagreement with measures of enthusiasm and diplomacy...."

Dan Keller Freed
After 21 years, reunited with Fran outside county jail
DAILY News  December 5, 2013, by Jordan Smith
"...The Kellers were convicted in November 1992 for the alleged sexual assault of a three-year-old girl who was then an infrequent drop-in at the couple's home-based daycare in Oak Hill. The girl, Christy Chaviers, initially told her mother that Dan had spanked her, but with the prodding of her mother and a therapist, Donna David Campbell, that allegation quickly morphed into an allegation of sexual assault and then again into allegations that the Kellers had subjected Christy and other children to "ritual abuse." The allegations were fantastic: That the Kellers had taken children on plane rides to Mexico where they were abused by adults, that they filmed the children having sex with adults, that they sacrificed babies and animals...."

Ennio Morricone
Music Review  July 25, 2008, by Raoul Hernandez
" the 1938 short story "Who Goes There?" Second-in-Command McReady, "a figure from some forgotten myth, a looming, bronze statue that held life, and walked," continues for the men of this doomed Antarctic mission: "So it crashes, and this guy, whoever he is, gets thrown out, and ends up freezing," he explains in the final-draft screenplay to John Carpenter's The Thing (1982). Frozen in the ice, for millions of years, before roaring back to shape-shifting life "weird and pissed off." ("I just can't believe this voodoo bullshit," grouses Keith David in the film.) Carpenter's update of Howard Hawks' equally bughouse The Thing From Another World (1951) also advances Dimitri Tiomkin's frenzied original score by employing Roman soundtrack emperor Ennio Morricone, recipient of an honorary Academy Award in 2007 for "his magnificent and multifaceted contributions to the art of film music." Morricone's titles tell the tale: "Humanity," "Shape," "Contamination," "Bestiality," and finally, ashes of an American flag, "Despair." Opening with funereal violins and piano, horns sweating ice-blue angst as strings stoke panic, "Humanity" and its tuba embodies menace without rationalization..."

Race, Class, and War
Screens Column  September 21, 2007, by Belinda Acosta
"...All well and good, except that after 15 exhausting hours, it's clear that the real star of the The War is the Burnsian narrative style: provocative images, moving music, letters (there have to be letters), and, in this case, some first-person reportage from various journalists. And yes, there are maps and arrows and discussion of war strategy – not by the eschewed historians – but by the Keith David narration..."
