The Pink Pick
Kate Messer remembers when she first met Velvet Underground guitarist Sterling Morrison and they bonded over the Gibson SG like a couple of guitar geeks.
Features Story  March 17, 2000, by Kate X Messer
"...I imagined his lanky figure framed against the wail and fury of the original mid-Sixties Velvet Underground and Exploding Plastic Inevitable. I could just see it: his straight hair grown out a bit, accented by the facial hair of the day, colorful morphing images casting shadows on his stern features, his lean body a calm harbor in the ensuing frenzy; Gerard Malanga and Mary Woronov creating a cyclone of erotic terror with their whip dance; black-clad Lou looking fierce and frightened and in need of a fix; Cale executing his viola, and Moe pounding away on that sideways bass drum..."

Okkervil River
Bloodletting the evil out of acoustic-trio Okkervil River.
Music Story  March 3, 2000, by Kate X Messer
"...I fill in the holes in my vision with Dexedrine. The landscape spins sideways, the movies and magazines whisper as they hide on soft silky surfaces..."

Firebird: A Memoir
Short reviews of recently published books.
Books Review  October 29, 1999, by David Garza
"...Mark Doty's fat, adorable head hovers and glows on the cover of Firebird, a memoir of his early years. "Here I am," the photo says, "with my troubled sideways glance and proud velvet chin -- love me!" And that's all there is, through two-hundred pages of recollection, through travels from Tennessee to Tucson, through evenings and mornings set upon earth solely for the creation of the poet, now grown, that's all there is: a picture too pretty, too well-remembered, to be of much use..."

Tailgating Teasips
Mick Vann makes a foray into the curious and often elaborate rite of University of Texas fandom known as "tailgating" and discovers some intriguing practices.
Food Story  October 22, 1999, by Mick Vann
"...The name of the group refers to their practice of "shotgunning" beers as a group, starting three hours before kickoff, and repeating the ritual every 30 minutes. To shotgun a beer, a small hole is punched in the bottom of the can while it's held sideways..."

Miss Montana's Wedding Day
Third Place
Features Story  September 17, 1999, by Amanda Eyre Ward
"..."Do you watch people, I said. What they do, how much they drink, etc." A man with a large wet gash in his cheek looked at Vera sideways, and moved over a stool..."

Texas Platters
The Scabs
Music Story  July 29, 1999
"...You can scoff at its pretentious, quasi-spiritual underpinnings, or you can steep yourself in its rhythmic hypnosis and come away refreshed; the listener's degree of involvement with the music matters almost as much as the music itself. While this local venture never fully expands upon the concept of being far out, Temple of the Embrace does pit plenty of disparate musical styles against one another to create a sideways sort of harmonic convergence..."

"We'll Always Have 807 Congress"
The Raging of the Elements, or Indoor Theatre in Austin -- Al Fresco
Arts Story  June 24, 1999, by Robi Polgar
"...That is, until Scenes' preview night, when the outdoors blew indoors during one of Austin's worst storms in years. A real squall, the kind that drowns fleets of mariners, bent the live oaks on Congress Avenue sideways..."

Alternate Universes
Books Story  March 11, 1999
"...Annie Proulx's The Shipping News. Venus Holler, for instance, is painted as "small, square homes that leaned sideways a bit like a bunch of drunks who can't quite hear each other..."

Live Shots
Weezer Hoot Night
Music Story  February 11, 1999
"...All without one watt of electricity -- all-acoustic timbres to shake the glasses off your face. And what perfection! Drums, crotales, bamboo flutes, and hand cymbals played with Zen elegance, as in the rarefied flute and drum duo piece, "Fu-Rai-Do," or the call and response of "Miyake," played by three duos with amazing sideways Tai Chi punch..."

Dancing About Architecture
Taking a P in the Snow
Music Column  December 26, 1997, by Ken Lieck
"..."They're prolific, they're happy, and we are damn proud to have them on our label," says Warner Bros. publicist Rick Gershon of Sixteen Deluxe, who have recorded so many songs the label likes that their first promotional EP, Easy With the Sideways, contains more non-album bonus tracks (three) than advance numbers from Emits Showers of Sparks (two)..."

Good Games for Adventurous Imaginations
Away From the Computer Screen and Back to the Table
Screens Story  December 12, 1997, by Allen Varney
"...* Knightmare Chess (Steve Jackson Games, $16.95). Played in conjunction with a game of chess, these 80 cards allow weird one-shot effects: switch piece positions, build walls, turn the board sideways, etc..."

Record Reviews
Music Review  December 5, 1997
"...Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Argentina's longtime rude boys now on their 12th album, might sound more spiritually akin to the excitingly schizophrenic Spanish/French/Arabic mulch of Mano Negra, but their confident, no-holds-barred lurching from style to style is Sandinista-era Clash all the way. Every song introduces something different to the mix: from the Santana-gets-sideways "El Muerto" and horn-driven Chicago-isms of "Surfer Calavera," to the Sepultura death vocals of "El Carnicero de Giles/sueno," Dixieland piano of "Howen," Parisian jazz stylings of "A Amigo JV," and old-world reggaeisms of "Calaveras y Diablitos" ("Niño Diamante" is pure Police)..."

Habitat for Humanity Builds More Than Houses Foundation of Faith
Features Story  November 7, 1997, by Jay Hardwig
"...I'll learn fewer new skills this week than I had hoped, and spend less time tackling challenging tasks. But when the carpet is being laid at six, the hacks can't be puttin' in tile sideways at five..."

Live and In Person!
Views and Reviews of Recent Author Visits
Books Story  October 3, 1997
"...The media, however, also tends to paint unflattering portraits of geeks who revel in their geekness at the Cons. But, in my opinion, if you are gong to do the whole Babylon 5 hair thing, you should expect a certain number of sideways glances...."

One Double, Six Ingredients
Columns  January 17, 1997, by Michael Ventura
"...I had no idea what to make of it then, and have no idea what to make of it now. He watched me carefully as I left -- which meant he'd been aware of me all along, watching me sideways as I'd watched him..."

Local Palette
Selected Works
Arts Story  December 13, 1996
"...Chris Williams' paintings take on a faintly chilling tone -- his generally realistic images are topped with an essence of Twilight Zone. In one, a naked woman, standing sideways, slouches and appears distant and forlorn..."

Playwrights in the Queue
Books Story  December 13, 1996
"...My charges pick one and I pass out their forms. Just then, the clerk shuts the window like a sideways mouth snapping at a fly..."

New Works
Arts Story  September 27, 1996
"...You like pencil lines applied with skill? He knows how to draw. You like graphic imagery that evokes old-time posters yet leaves you scratching your head as to what the picture is about? Has he got a mermaid for you! You like translating French verse and studying Biblical passages printed upside down and sideways? Flatbed Press Gallery is the place to be...."

Texas Records
Music Review  November 24, 1995
"...No wonder, then, that Reinhardt, Gainsborough, and Conte can hang with Tubb, Wills, and Hopkins. Only occasionally do the complexities of Glover Gill's piano and Olivier Giraud's guitar harmonies get a little sideways in tight turns..."
