Fantastic Fest Review: The Cured
Grief, guilt, and terrorism explored in Irish zombie drama
DAILY Screens  September 25, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...Yet, like all the best zombie movies, the story is not a straight analogy, but a metaphor, one that touches poignantly and mournfully on complicity and guilt, on the logic of violence and the seduction of extremism. That's barely the start, with questions of addiction, forgiveness, refugee integration, AIDS, and even a sideways comment on American immigration policy..."

Fantastic Fest Fills the Card
Massive list includes closing night film
DAILY Screens  September 5, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...So about those films: Just as Martin McDonagh's eagerly awaited Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri grabbed the prestigious opening slot in the first round announcement, now the prestigious closing frames will be those of Downsizing, the new sci-fi social satire from the Election, Sideways, and Nebraska director Alexander Payne...."

25 Bars That Define Austin
Dives, lounges, and saloons that are raising the bar
Food Story  July 20, 2017, by Brandon Watson
"...Recently married owners Billy and Colette Adelle-Dein Hankey have created a dive bar that capitalizes on their experience in upscale hospitality without sacrificing the neighborhood vibe. It's the kind of place where you can order from an extensive mezcal selection, but no one will look at you sideways if you chase it with a cheap beer. Weather Up1808 E..."

The Doctor vs. the Hospital
Relentless whistleblower fights legal war of attrition with Lakeway Medical Center
News Story  July 6, 2017, by Michael King
"...That wasn't the first such episode in Van Boven's career. In 2007, he parted ways with the Virginia Regional Medical Center (of Virginia, Minnesota), via a reported $150,000 settlement of a lawsuit he filed after an earlier settlement agreement with the VRMC went sideways..."

DVDanger: Beyond the Gates
Throwback horror resurrects the VHS board-game phenomenon
DAILY Screens  May 21, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...Once the dice and heads start rolling, Jackson balances the absurdity with odd splashes of gore, and the zero-budget magic of a few colored lights to depict the other side (hey, if it worked for Insidious, it'll work here). Sideways and overt references to Fulci and of course Gordon, as well as a deliciously over-the-top performance by Jesse Merlin (an occasional screen actor, but far better known as a stage baritone, including his long run as Dr..."

Five Things to Do in Austin This Weekend
Because you can't just get baked & eat breakfast tacos 24/7, right?
DAILY Arts  May 19, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...But how can we not pimp it here? We love those John-Pauls, and not just because we work with Mark John-Paul on a daily basis. And not just because their frontman, that Phillip Niemeyer, runs the remarkable Northern-Southern Gallery whose exhibitions have sometimes knocked us sideways with beauty..."

Dear Glutton: Getting in to Franklin Barbecue
And where to go if it doesn't work out
Food Story  March 16, 2017, by Emily Beyda
"...But I can admit that the barbecue itself was good enough to compensate for the pain of waiting in line, the sunburn, and the awkward conversation with couples from San Diego who were just really, really into SeaWorld. Franklin's brisket is this greasy, dreamy mess, collapsing into an appealingly oozy pile of fat and meat shards if you so much as look at it sideways..."

The Speed of Sound: Breaking the Barriers Between Music and Technology: A Memoir
How the one-hit UK synth-pop entrepreneur transcended the Top 40
Music Review  November 3, 2016, by Kahron Spearman
"...His long overdue and incredibly entertaining memoir, The Speed of Sound: Breaking the Barriers Between Music and Technology, puts the synth-pop innovator front and center as a Quixotic figure in a whirlwind of chance, great talent, and impeccable timing – even when mainstream ubiquity went bye-bye. Dolby's storytelling highlights the music-driven first half of the book, particularly his comical dealings with Michael Jackson, which always ended up sideways..."

Music Story  September 29, 2016
"...Chris Stapleton 6pm, Samsung stage; Weekend One only Since the May 2015 release of Traveler, Nashville's Chris Stapleton has knocked the country music industry sideways.

I Like to Watch: Back to Business Casual
You're the Worst picks up where Casual leaves off
Screens Column  August 18, 2016, by Jacob Clifton
"...While the sophomore season of that show had much the same "new scenario" mandate – in this case, the now-committed relationship between our two trainwreck leads – it responded to this overarching theme with a strikingly beautiful, hard-to-watch exploration of mental illness. Specifically, the tremendously gifted Aya Cash's Gretchen happened to fall in a clinical-depression hole at the most inconvenient time imaginable, sending the whole setup sideways in a fashion that was always as uncomfortable as it was moving...."

Gay Place
A slow week, but there's still fun to be had
Columns  August 4, 2016, by Sarah Marloff

DAILY Qmmunity  June 22, 2016, by Dan Gray
"...However, either one of them, or any one of us (gay, straight, or sideways) could have been in Orlando’s Pulse nightclub in the early hours of June 12. [image-1]..."

SXSW Film Review: In a Valley of Violence
Ti West and Ethan Hawke deliver a brutally entertaining Western
DAILY Screens  March 12, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...Most of them, come to think of it. Let ‘em wander off into the Andalusian sunset, heavy-leaded and sagging sideways off their stallion into dust while an Ennio Morricone score bodes ill in the background...."

"Seth Orion Schwaiger: Complex I" at Pump Project
This vast, ambitious solo show transforms the gallery space into a maze and a temple to art past and future
Arts Review  February 18, 2016, by Madeline Irvine
"...Upstairs is the realm of the gods. In a long, darkened studio, a beautiful video projection of clouds, skewed sideways, is seen on a round hanging disc..."

Music Review  December 3, 2015, by Greg Beets
"...In a town saturated with marching guitars, the vibraphonic strains of this sideways power trio make for extra refreshing tonic. Benko's craft mixture of cocktail jazz and indie pop stretches horizons even as it soothes the senses..."

Who Let the Dogs Out?
A playlist for the dog days of summer
Music Story  July 16, 2015, by Raoul Hernandez, Kahron Spearman, Jim Caligiuri, Doug Freeman, Michael Toland, William Harries Graham, Tim Stegall, Marc Savlov, Jay Trachtenberg, Abby Johnston, Greg Beets, Margaret Moser, Thomas Fawcett, Neph Basedow and Kevin Curtin
"...The base theme of (ex-)lover as a dog here applies to the fairer sex: "Your problem's cured with a dollar bill/ And if it won't, I know a flea collar will/ You're just a dog, a scurvy dog." Its riff could be T. Rex's "Bang a Gong" played sideways, while the chugging, 1983 techno groove preserves the moment that the Houston trio ruled MTV with beards and hot rods. – Tim Stegall "Do the Dog," the Specials..."

The Lonesome Band
Music Story  June 18, 2015, by Jim Caligiuri
"...Like many acts to emerge in the past decade, TLB gets sideways carrying a tune. There's a youthful spirit carrying the locals' brand of roots rock to firm entrenchment..."

DVD Extra: Revenge Double Feature
Kurando Mitsutake on bringing Japanese action to the U.S.
DAILY Screens  May 29, 2015, by Richard Whittaker
"...A self-confessed fan of Spaghetti Westerns and samurai movies, writer/director Mitsutake fused them together into what he calls a sushi western for his 2009 cult success Samurai Avenger: The Blind Wolf. It sees a Blu-ray re-release this month just in time for the home release of his 2014 followup, Gun Woman, a sideways homage to modern gore flicks..."

Siempre Selena

Music Story  April 9, 2015, by Kate X Messer
