"...Shot almost entirely within the confines of Austin Film Society board member Deborah Green's labyrinthine Park City, Utah, mansion – the site of the society's annual Sundance Film Festival parties and the Austin film community's unofficial Utah headquarters – Lovers of Hate follows the sideways spiral of the woeful Rudy (Chris Doubek), a failed writer recently separated from his wife, Diana (Heather Kafka), who's had all the Rudy she can take and ends up falling for Paul (Alex Karpovsky), Rudy's sibling rival, a successful writer of children's books. Extremely awkward quasi-hilarity (and no small amount of self-loathing from virtually the entire, uniformly excellent cast) ensues...."

TV Eye
How much is that male escort in the window?
Screens Column  July 3, 2009, by Belinda Acosta
"...However, if the pilot, which aired last Sunday, is any indication, Hung will be much more than a show about a man who is well-endowed. Considering it's executive produced by Dmitry Lipkin (the creator of FX's woefully underappreciated and now canceled The Riches) and Alexander Payne (director of the Oscar-winning Sideways), this should come as no surprise..."

The attitude in Austin is sometimes "dismissive" when it comes to drugs, but as a "major corridor" from Mexico through the U.S..."

News Column  April 10, 2009, by Michael King
"...In other news, our local tin-pot conspiracist, radio/TV host, "documentarian," and DVD-salesman Alex Jones has been dragged sideways into the story of Richard Poplawski, who on April 4 allegedly murdered three Pittsburgh police officers arriving at his home after a domestic disturbance call from his mother. Turns out the 22-year-old Poplawski is a raving anti-Semite, white supremacist, and gun fanatic who a few times posted comments to Jones' Infowars website (or the related Prison Planet), a connection initially discovered by the Anti-Defamation League as it tracked Poplawski's various Web names..."

In 1992, Fran and Danny Keller were convicted of multiple counts of child sexual abuse at their Oak Hill day care center and sent to prison for 48 years. It's likely they were innocent. Indeed, it's very likely that no crime ever occurred – except an absurd and overzealous prosecution

Christopher Cross
One World Theatre, Jan. 18
Music Review  January 23, 2009, by Greg Beets
"...after a performance at Austin's Alamo Roadhouse in October 1978. Introduced here by KLBJ's Charlie Hodge, Cross and his fourpiece band opened the second show with "Never Be the Same."
