Down in the Dirt
Salih Williams
Music Story  May 20, 2005, by Robert Gabriel
"...As every mix tape DJ worth his salt thanks the big Longhorn in the sky for its granting of the track's resurrection, Williams watches as two of his rhythmic hobgoblins – Mike Jones' "Back Then" and Paul Wall's "Sittin' Sideways" – race about the hip-hop vista...."

"...Saturday, March 12 Paul Giamatti enters a hotel room, takes out the obligatory Bible and tosses it in the trash can. The scene was cut from critically acclaimed film Sideways, while a shot of the star reading Barely Legal magazine made it in, said Thomas Haden Church..."

Big feet, freedom hairdressers, and the Oscars
Columns  March 4, 2005, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...SOCIAL DIARY: We certainly are in the midst of post-holiday fervor that promises to continue until it morphs into spring fever. We just saw Barbara Chisholm's knock-out performance in her fab one-woman show Blown Sideways Through Life, written by Claudia Shear and directed by Dave Steakley, at Zach Scott, and also attended the theatre's rockin' Red Hot & Soul fundraiser at the Austin Music Hall – great food, go-go dancers, music, and a wonderful auction make this event grow larger every year and is one of the most fun charity events of the year..."

Screens Story  January 21, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...NM: That was thanks to Alexander Payne [Sideways], our executive producer, who got him to read it. Alexander was a great supporter along the way, giving meaningful notes on the script and helping out immensely..."

DVDs: Part 3
Gift guide
Screens Story  December 17, 2004, by Spencer Parsons
"...On the amiably rambling commentary track, Altman, Gould, Segal, and screenwriter Joseph Walsh illuminate the dance between screenplay, improvisational performance, and milieu that yielded a closely observed chamber piece with enough America packed in to rival the epic hubbub of Nashville. Alive and contemporary as the shlubs in this season's Sideways, the joyously damaged duo on this melancholy "road to Reno" brilliantly shuck and jive around a national character that locates big wins and tidy divorces in the same place...."

Music Story  December 3, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...It didn't last, of course. By that point, the musical movement known as Britpop had begun its slow sidle up alongside the great pop culture dole queue and Blair's pre-9/11 game face was already slipping sideways..."

Adventures in young bandom: Zykos on the road
Music Story  November 19, 2004, by Melanie Haupt
"...Later in the set, Davis steps aside and Booher assumes the position at the keyboard and licks his chops. It's a very sexy gesture and it is, surprisingly, followed by a sideways glance and sly grin in my direction..."

Brian Eno
Music Review  August 20, 2004, by Michael Chamy
"...Elmo's Fire" and "I'll Come Running." Eno's solo debut, '74's Here Come the Warm Jets, is the clarion call, opening with glam rock masterpiece/Velvet Goldmine staple "Needles in the Camel's Eye" before descending into a world of layered art-pop inspired equally by classic rock and avant-garde composer John Cage. Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy), from the same year, furthered Eno's mastery of sideways, impressionistic pop and is a fine forum for a wonderful voice often overshadowed by so many other musical talents..."

Where Nothing Falls II
Where Nothing Falls II is a breathtaking, heart-rending parade of bodies in motion through the vast expanses of a warehouse
Arts Review  June 25, 2004, by Robert Faires
"...By the time we see this in Where Nothing Falls II, Sally Jacques' rich extension of her site-specific dance from 2003, we've witnessed a number of individuals walk and run to and fro between their own shadows on a wall and some unseen force that appears to startle them, until finally all fall and lie still on the hard floor; four figures attached to ropes leave a catwalk high in the air and float to earth, their sideways bodies curled like fetuses; angelic figures on roller skates glide from a dark void toward us, and as they come kneeling and scooping their hands, as if through water, to offer us its cooling relief, two figures, their hands gripping long, elastic bands, launch themselves into the air, their feet leaving the earth, their bodies swinging, soaring, sailing through space – we've seen this and much more, even a quartet of celestial skateboarders, rolling thunderously up wooden ramps and down to surf the concrete, winding through the forest of tall, concrete pillars and one another's paths. In short, we've seen a breathtaking parade of bodies in motion, human beings confronting loss, separateness, and their place in the wide, wide world through the massive expanses of a warehouse in the Domain...."

Get in the Ring
Scott Weiland calls Andy Langer out
Music Story  June 11, 2004, by Andy Langer
"...As it is, Velvet Revolver is greater than the sum of its parts. So how did Weiland and I get so sideways? You'll have to ask him...."

Summer Fun
The H2Hos take their renegade feminism to Austin's pools and beyond
Features Story  May 14, 2004, by Nora Ankrum
"...Just a month and a half later, five fancifully clad women hijacked the Wind Ridge Apartments pool near Barton Hills, and 150 people showed up to watch – some friends of swimmers, some kids and their parents from the neighborhood, some curious joggers and various passersby. With the accompanying music of the newly formed Wishing Well band, the five pranced around the pool, dove sideways into the water, and then somersaulted, log-rolled, and ballet-kicked until a canoe paddled up..."

Cass McCombs
Music Review  March 19, 2004, by Michael Bertin
"...As for what he looks like, who knows? If he hadn't had to sing into a microphone, he would've spent the entire set with his back to the audience. Initially, he was standing with his left shoulder to the modest crowd, singing sideways; yet as the set progressed, the mic somehow worked its way further around, and he kept turning further away..."

Weird Science Takes the Stage
The strange but true tale of how a high school class turned a science textbook into a play
Arts Story  February 6, 2004, by C. Denby Swanson
"...Later that week, we went to the Austin Zoo, which has eight species of primates, including monkeys who used to live at a research lab, and lions, tigers, panthers, and other big cats rescued from a "religious circus." We came home from that trip with all kinds of gestures and shapes and questions to ponder: Why do goats have sideways pupils? How do turtles grow their shells? Why do those monkeys have white ear tufts, and others don't?..."

The Dandy Warhols
Music Story  September 19, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...The Dandy WarholsWelcome to the Monkey House (Capitol) Did you hear the one about the Velvets-inflected Portland, Ore., garage rockers who traded their smirking Dilaudid fuzz grope for slick electro beats and Nick Rhodes production? Do you really want to? After honing their wickedly insouciant chops (and frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor's bleery smirk) on a trio of releases that merged VU's trippier moments with slacker-pop guitar punch and Zia McCabe's 10-fingers-no-thumbs keyboard/bass switcheroos, the Dandys have made something of a sideways slide this time out. Bringing in a raft of loopy electronic effects and former Duran Duraner Rhodes' studio skills results in a mixed bag that, while never actually falling flat, feels like a prototype for something not yet fully realized..."

Everybody's Wrong But Me
Postmarks  September 15, 2003
"...This is to all the employers in Austin who still prefer to hire students, who often are working for money for spring break, European vacations, or slutty underwear, rather than grownups, who will show up for work on time and who need jobs for survival; to all the infantile authoritarian worms (by definition: a spineless, dirt-eating creature whose oral and anal pores are distinguished only in relation to the direction in which the creature is traveling) who tend to do the firing; the acquaintances who grill me with, "Why can't you (this)/Why don't you (that)?" and other insinuations of my being an idiot who can't see the obvious venues of endeavor; the public-service workers at state and county agencies, who have proven themselves to be rude, insulting, and/or inept to comically absurd extents; the people who have jobs who tell the jobless, "It's pretty tough right now"; and finally, to smug smartasses who believe they couldn't be the next to end up unemployed and unemployable in Austin, Texas: Screw yourselves. Sideways...."
