Books Story  February 13, 2004, by Garth Mueller
"...We skulk around on foot, struggling with the addresses – some are scrawled in black marker right on the aluminum, some use all different fonts like a ransom note – when my cell rings. Mom says Sam just called..."

Music Story  June 22, 2001, by Christopher Gray
"..."We're so deep in this financially and emotionally, frankly, we can't afford to have anyone else work there," says Randall. "The guy who's our main carpenter right now, he's gonna be the doorman."..."

Do Right Woman
Polly Parsons, only child of Gram Parsons, comes full circle in Austin with the Hickory Wind Ranch, sober living for women
Music Story  July 31, 2009, by Margaret Moser
"...While Sahm was grooving in Mendocino, Parsons rounded up the Flying Burrito Brothers with Chris Hillman. Armed with a purer vision of country than the folk inflections of the Byrds, the group's 1969 debut, The Gilded Palace of Sin, was laden with soul standards such as "Dark End of the Street" and "Do Right Woman," but no one was prepared for the originals that the Parsons-Hillman pairing delivered...."

Point Austin: Who's Blue?
Understanding Austin political speak
News Column  May 9, 2008, by Michael King
"...So we all have another month of Austin-weird mudslinging to entertain us – where the mud slung is occasionally real mud, or at least polluted groundwater mixed with mutual accusations of being seen in public with (or without) people of the wrong (or right) professional persuasion – e.g., "developers," "political consultants," "insiders," "outsiders," "environmentalists," "the special interests," "neighborhood activists," etc., etc. I've put all those terms in dubious scare quotes, because Austin's political language is a lot like that of Humpty Dumpty, who famously declared, "When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more nor less."..."

Spotlight: Red House Painters
The Red House Painters are back.
Music Story  March 16, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...In the meantime, Kozelek got to work on a slate of projects that struck longtime fans of the Painters' folksy gloom-pop as nothing less than downright bizarre: the John Denver tribute CD Take Me Home and an album consisting entirely of AC/DC covers titled What's Next to the Moon. Yeah, that's right -- AC/DC...."

AC Date Night: Royal Blue Grocery & Garage Cocktail Bar
Picnic and park it Downtown
Food Story  August 13, 2015, by Adrienne Whitehorse
"...A trip into Downtown Austin on a weekend normally conjures crowded sidewalks, frenzied club atmospheres, and overbearing aural stimuli. But last Friday night, I exacted my idea of a perfect date – a relaxing picnic in the park followed by remarkable drinks in a cozy, clandestine cocktail lounge – surprisingly, right in the heart of this energetic city...."

Lazer Team
The first feature film from Austin's Rooster Teeth gang is a hoot
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  January 29, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...It’s no Galaxy Quest, and it sometimes lapses into early Adam Sandler territory (not necessarily a bad thing), but it more accurately recalls Weird Science, Small Soldiers, and Explorers – minus Joe Dante’s polish. What carries the film through to its effects-laden, football-field conclusion is the ensemble cast of relative unknowns, among them Gavin Free as Woody, a mullet-sporting doofus who triples his IQ (and gains a British accent) after donning the suit’s helmet; Burnie Burns as the put-upon local sheriff’s deputy, who masters the suit’s force-field-generating left arm; Michael Jones’ Zach, a hothead footballer and the new possessor of an intergalactic energy cannon for his right arm; and Colton Dunn, as a washed-up, alcoholic ex-footballer, who gets the suit’s boots, giving him the power of superspeed..."

The Aftermath
Days later, the Red River rampage echoes through many lives
News Story  March 21, 2014, by Jordan Smith
"...The car was in the right-hand lane, driving without any lights toward the intersection at the southbound access road of I-35. As Traylor approached, driving in the left-hand lane, the Civic made an illegal left turn from the right-hand lane, crossing directly in front of Traylor, who had to avoid a collision...."

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Who knew our beloved president also worked the graveyard shift? This capable rewrite of American history delivers its splatter with a straight face.
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  June 22, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...That's all fine and good, but does Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter kick some righteous undead ass or what? Absolutely, it does. Benjamin Walker, as Lincoln, may not have the gangly gravitas of Raymond Massey's Abe Lincoln in Illinois – he looks like a young Liam Neeson doing a younger Bruce Campbell, frankly – but he does have a sly, self-effacing sense of humor that feels ever so Lincoln-esque..."

The Full Monty
With the release of 'RWBY,' Monty Oum is officially Rooster Teeth's rock star
Screens Story  July 19, 2013, by Dan Solomon
"...A comparison to Kanye West is something that Oum, whose humility instinctively leads him to deflect compliments on the content of RWBY to his team of collaborators, would probably avoid. But at RTX, it's hard to argue with that comparison for a few reasons – not the least of which is that the animator is dressed in a platinum wig, a black vest with rubber flowers molded onto its lapel, a white tunic, and stark black cargo pants, with a feathery white earring dangling from his right ear..."

Reasonable Doubt
Did misleading DNA analysis land an innocent man on death row?
News Story  April 28, 2016, by Chase Hoffberger
"..."As soon as I get – to get my shirt off right here, I walk around the corner and I see Cinda on the ground," he testified. He saw the comal on her face and "[threw] it out of the way." Barz – who was still alive but badly beaten – reached for him, grabbing his neck and scratching it...."

Music Story  October 20, 2000, by Preston Hubbard
"...Around this time, my big brother gave me my first shot of opiates, a quarter of a #4 Dilaudid. I passed out, scaring the shit out of him, but came right to, thinking, "This is it! This is the feeling!" It was like coming home, the best feeling I ever imagined..."

Columns  March 30, 2007, by Michael Ventura
"...Like their ancestors, they've worked hard and hard and hard. They've played by the rules, believed the right things, worshipped the proper God, lived as they deeply felt life should be lived, and they're losing everything that matters to them..."

Orange-clad abortion bill opponents witness House floor folly
DAILY News  June 24, 2013, by Dan Solomon
"...After a House committee on Friday quietly approved three bills that would further demolish a woman’s right to an abortion, the Texas Legislature convened Sunday with the emphasis on Senate Bill 5 (which ultimately passed Monday morning, with the House addition of a “fetal pain” amendment)...."

"...When the Millennium March on Washington hit a serious snag just six months before the national event was scheduled to take place, organizers of the gay and lesbian march picked up the phone and summoned Dianne Hardy-Garcia to Washington, D.C. They knew that if anybody could save the day it was Hardy-Garcia, the executive director of the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas..."

Slanted & Enchanted
Matador Records magnate Gerard Cosloy turns the 'live music capital' into a Casual Victim Pile
Music Story  January 22, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...Cosloy was also a DJ for Boston's WZBC, promoted some shows in the area, and covered the scene for the Village Voice and Boston Rock, for which he once asked Black Flag why they didn't stop the violence at their shows. Robo's response was, "Do we have a right to act as leaders, to tell people how to act?"..."

The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou
Bill Murray won't get the elusive Oscar for this one – for all its visual majesty, The Life Aquatic is too slight – but the film is nevertheless a funny, bewildering, and giddy spectacle.
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  December 24, 2004, by Kimberley Jones
"...Even Wes Anderson's most ardent fans – and I count myself one of them – might scratch their heads at his latest picture, wondering just how to process this fantastical tale of the Jacques Cousteau-like oceanographer Steve Zissou (Murray) and his quest to hunt down the mythic jaguar shark that swallowed his best friend whole. But I think Anderson and his co-writer Noah Baumbach have left little signposts for the audience; for me it was right around the time Zissou's ship, The Belafonte, was attacked by pirates (yes, pirates!) that the truly sublime silliness of the thing really registered, and I realized what we're dealing with here is Anderson's purest comedy to date..."

Resident Evil
Like your first frantic lay in a nightclub bathroom, Resident Evil feels fantastic while you're in its thrall, but considerably less so after the climax has come and gone. Midway...

Film Review  March 15, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...It's chase/shoot/die for the next 90 minutes as Jovovich and her fellow mysterians get picked off by various and sundry critters, though the film is noticeably lacking the grue. People get sliced and diced left and right, but there's nary a drop of the spurtin' red in view..."

"...Now with the clock at nine days and ticking before my first prom, I was at a distinct disadvantage. Where does one find a prom dress anyway? How does one accomplish those tall hairdos? As a person whose wardrobe is frighteningly dictated by the clothes lying on the floor, this is not something to which I'm accustomed..."

Quentin Tarantino goes into overdrive with this story about the bride who was left for dead on her wedding day and seeks revenge against them that done her wrong.

Film Review  October 10, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...Khan, you might remember (or not), was the old nemesis of Capt. Kirk, who vowed to chase his quarry "round perdition’s flames" before "grappling to the last with thee" – and Uma Thurman’s character here, the Bride, she’s called, is pure, feminized Khan, right down to her warrior soul and dead offspring..."

1,000 Musical Kisses
Patty Griffin comes of age.
Music Story  May 17, 2002, by Dave Marsh
"...Identified today as a kind of alt.country singer-songwriter -- Americana, in a pinch -- Griffin has sung on albums by Ray Wylie Hubbard, Eliza Gilkyson, Emmylou Harris, Jon Dee Graham, and Julie Miller; she fits right in with the legends. She's also developed a fascinating live collaboration with Michael Fracasso, one of the few artists who can match her vocal prowess..."

Apollo 13
Howard's take on the ill-fated 1970 moon shot is filled with the almost unassailable heroics of the U.S. space program and the genuine urgency of history.
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  June 30, 1995, by Marc Savlov
"...Howard pulls out all the stops on this one, pumping up the audience's emotions with help from James Horner's well-placed, not-quite-as-over-the-top-as-you'd-think score and the astronauts' red-white-and-blue courage in the face of danger. It's almost a valentine to NASA, but without the celestial mythologizing of films like The Right Stuff..."

Year-End Self-Loathing
What the hell happened this year?
DAILY Music  December 28, 2007, by Audra Schroeder
"...It kept throwing gutter balls, and sometimes those balls even leapt into the next lane with a dull thud. But every once in a while the ball miraculously veered right or left and knocked down some pins, and it felt like maybe this year wouldn’t be eclipsed by the skin-numbing feel-goodness of that fucking Feist song..."

DAILY Arts  June 5, 2014, by Seth Orion Schwaiger
"...AC: In your artist talk [at Big Medium on May 3], you mentioned that you didn't feel right objectifying another woman for your art by painting anyone other than yourself in these compromised poses, but you also mentioned that these works were stand ins for everywoman. Do you then feel that these works are objectifying every woman? What is your stance on objectification?..."

The Next Fun Fearless Female Rock Star
Austin's now generation comes of age in Suzanna Choffel
Music Story  November 28, 2008, by Margaret Moser
"...As a contender for the Cosmopolitan StarLaunch contest and the winner of two online competitions, including FameCast; a featured artist on two compilations who tours nonstop playing private parties and concerts; and a CMJ showcaser with loads of critical praise for her CD and invitations left and right to collaborate, not to mention one of the hottest videos on YouTube, Choffel arguably has the hottest name out of Austin at the moment. It's more than enough to serve notice that she's, quite literally, moving from the small stage to the big one. YouTube Sensation..."

"...Mounted on one side are a series of large tile panels that - strung together - make up the prototype for the world's first billboard-sized, true-color hologram.

Jazz Sides
Music Review  June 12, 1998
"...Six valves, three bells, a glissiando slide, and a MIDI hookup makes it unique, but Neill's trippy songwriting makes it cool. Think Branford Marsalis on funky shrooms, toss in some drum and bass, a little big beat, and you're on the right path..."

Tribute Records
Tammy Wynette Remembered
Music Review  December 31, 1998
"...As the Police's manager, as well as older brother of the group's drummer Stewart Copeland, Miles not only gave the spikey blond-haired trio start-up capital, he sold A&M Records a song called "Roxanne." Two decades later, Copeland now runs the Ark 21 label, which has already released two volumes of reggae tribute to the Police (Regatta Mondatta, Vols 1 &2), as well as early material from the group, Stronium 90: Police Academy. Now comes a third tribute, Outlandos D'Americas:A Rock en Español Tribute to the Police, and while Copeland made reggae interpretations of the band's songs look like no-brainers -- Sting, Stewart, and guitarist Andy Summers were, after all, merely white punks playing ragga (Regatta de Blanc) -- enlisting "Rock en Español" bands to skank their way through the catalog is downright brilliant; there exist few more seminal bands in all of Latin America than the Police..."
