"...Two voices not affiliated with the city of Austin and its plans are Ross Mason, owner of Hyde Park's much-loved Avenue B. Grocery, and author/futurist Bruce Sterling, who also makes his home amongst the tree- and slacker-laden streets of Hyde Park..."
"...Delivering there so often, I got to be friends with Emporium manager Ross Mason (now owner of Avenue B Grocery) and their chef, Michael Devine. I found the Littlepages to be some of the nicest people I've ever met in the restaurant business..."
"...B, 453-3921, www.avenuebgrocery.com) in Austin's first suburb is the longest running grocer at roughly 100 years of age. Current owner Ross Mason stocks a select grocery inventory and sells delicious, hand-crafted deli sandwiches with a free side of Hyde Park neighborhood history..."
"...(1962, 153min/b&w, DCP) James Mason, Shelley Winters, Sue Lyon, and Peter Sellers. Directed by Stanley Kubrick..."
"...The real ace up Neece's sleeve may well be He Never Died, which continues the artistic evolution of punk elder statesman Henry Rollins into an actor to watch. Neece said, "I've never seen him as a lead, and his performance is so strong in this." He's not the only one to subvert expectations: Adam Mason is infamous for disturbing underground horrors like Pig, but his surprise collaboration with Suburgatory/Law & Order star Jeremy Sisto on the found-footage shocker Hangman "is definitely the most successful thing he's ever directed, and having Jeremy Sisto producing definitely raises it to another level."..."
"...It's thinking man's rock, with three guitars and more than a little Skynyrd boogie thrown in. -- Jerry Renshaw Mason Jennings, 4:15pm, BMI stage Originally from Hawaii, but currently a resident of Minneapolis, Mason Jennings has been compared to no less than Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, yet maintains enough variety in his songwriting to make it fresh and appealing..."
"...After years of expansion, several large newspapers have recently cut back on religion coverage, including The Dallas Morning News, the grand poobah of celestial coverage. "The problem is drawing high-paying retail advertising," said Debra Mason, executive director of the Religion Newswriters Association..."
"...Pig The Final Screenings D: Adam Mason A savage satire of gender politics in America, Adam Mason is guaranteed to shock and offend with Pig. Created with actor and longtime collaborator Andrew Howard, Pig is a virtuoso piece of pure cinema..."
"...Task Force Vice Chair Tom Mason stressed the importance of the city making good on its commitment to environmental sustainability by inking that pledge into the report. "We called for the city to put a really big, deep stake in the ground saying we are going to become the most water efficient city in the state of Texas," he told fellow members...."
"...And then a couple of things happened. There's this Irish stone mason, he's a friend of mine..."
"...By keeping the action as an almost prosaic procedural, McAnulty and Stewart join some of the most superior recent underground found-footage horrors (Adam Mason's skincrawling Hangman, serial killer relationship black comedy The House With 100 Eyes, and Romanian genre violator Be My Cat: A Film for Anne) with hints of early mumblecore (seriously, there's a kinship of sorts with Uncle Kent-era Joe Swanberg, with its kinetic depiction of a relationship under duress)...."
"...[image-2] The Archer D: Valerie Weiss Archer champion Lauren Pierce escapes a corrupt juvenile correctional facility with Rebecca, a fierce but alluring inmate and together they must survive a desperate warden who is bow-hunting his prey to make sure his secret stays buried. Cast: Bailey Noble, Bill Sage, Jeanine Mason, Michael Grant Terry, Kurt Fuller, Dendrie Taylor, Grace Victoria Cox, Andrew Caldwell (World Premiere)..."
"...NS: We just played four. We have two more coming up this year, because Carlos was still booked at the House of Blues, and also, I was already booked on this tour that I’m about to start in a few days with the Doobie Brothers and Dave Mason...."
"...The creator of the hugely popular anime series RWBY, Monty Oum died suddenly at the age of 33 from “an extreme allergic reaction to a routine medical procedure.” Fans took to our boards to grieve – and anti-vaxxers took the opportunity to put in their own two cents. [image-2] 2) “Simulated Sex” This breakout feature from our SXSW Interactive preview explored the expanding market for “cutting-edge smut for virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift.” Former adult film star Kayden Kross expressed some doubt over the burgeoning virtual pornography field: “I mean, it would have to be some damn good technology." [image-3] 3) "Breakfast With Bigots" This story – and its sting – is still fresh: In early December, two hijab-wearing Muslim women were the targets of Islamophobic comments while waiting for a table at Kerbey Lane Cafe, and a manager declined to remove the insulting party from the restaurant. Kerbey Lane CEO Mason Ayer took responsibility for not training employees on “how to handle a heated, hate-filled assault by one of our guests directed at another” and vowed to make that training a priority going forward. 4) “Phillip Perea Commits Suicide”..."

"...Still, that intimate theatrical art form has grown much more prominent in Austin over the last decade, most notably in regard to cabaret's heaviest hitters sharing their talents in the Violet Crown. The city has had visits from Tony Award winners Donna McKechnie, Faith Prince, and Debbie Gravitte; Grammy winner (and Manhattan Transfer member) Cheryl Bentyne; Golden Globe winner (and UT grad) Amanda McBroom; Broadway stars Andrea McArdle, Karen Mason, and Sandra Reaves-Phillips; TV and theatre star Paige Davis (Trading Spaces); and cabaret royalty Ann Hampton Callaway and Steve Ross, not to mention bona fide entertainment legends Carol Channing, Eartha Kitt, and Charo..."
"...1975 arrives Right on Time. Austin's Dixie Witch continues the trio thread with spices south of the Mason-Dixon..."
"...My personal favorite of the two maps is the western wildlife trail, but only because it has a wide variety of things to see and do, from the evening emergence at the Eckert James River Bat Cave (325/347-5970) outside of Mason to viewing the Native American rock paintings at Paint Rock (325/732-4376). The map even includes two canoe trails on the Guadalupe River...."
"...MASONIC: Anchored by brothers Kevin, John, and Brian Mason, Masonic has emerged as Austin's prime purveyor of neologistic pop; 2001's Never Stood a Chance (Tight Spot) was one of that year's premier local releases. Since then, vocalist Jennifer Christen has been replaced by Leah Bogan, who fully envelops the role of nonchalant chanteuse established by her predecessor..."
