"...It's hard to remember how many times filmmaker and Austin Film Society Artistic Director Richard Linklater has been on the cover of The Austin Chronicle. This is not even to consider how many more times we've featured interviews with him, articles on him, and pieces by him (as well as film reviews and previews)..."
"...But I gotta admit it: those rascals had it in for the little amphibian; and that my enemy is the enemy of my friend crap really works. I guess I was just living in the past anyway, remembering when I used to play in the creeks and the brooks with the tadpoles and the frogs and the turtles.” "Hey Pops! I've seen pictures of those things, I'll slap a few up with the story.” "Well I guess that endorsement from The Austin Chronicle really sunk our rowboat.” "Hey Pops! What's that?” "What's what, Mindy?” "What's The Austin Chronicle?”..."

"...In March they tend to be green, for obvious reasons. Mmmm … doesn't that make you want to just cram one of those puffy cakes in your mouth? Or four … or seven?

"...In a challenging year, each Austin Chronicle critic has written and rewritten their Top 10 lists this year, but their collation and addition added up to this year's collective list of the year's finest movies – at least, from the view of this desk...."
"...It was a tense moment and the first one in which a contestant paused in the middle of spelling a word to request relevant information regarding it: language of origin, repetition of the pronunciation, and the definition. But it was also the last word of the sixth annual Austin Chronicle/Fadó Adult Spelling Bee, Thursday, Oct..."
"...In that time, Mills has been a conscientious steward of the company, taking care to preserve the traditions that connect Ballet Austin to the city – such as the annual production of The Nutcracker, 53 Christmases and counting – while also developing a ballet for a new Austin, a growing, more cosmopolitan city with a taste for the new and daring. "New" matters to Mills; on being handed the keys to his artistic home, Mills told the Chronicle, "Bringing new work into our company is the number one priority for me." It's a goal he's made good on, choreographing more than three dozen new dances himself, including an inspired adaptation of Hamlet that's been performed around the U.S..."

"...Narrative: If the early days of the Chronicle were rendered faithfully, it could only be as a dark, stark, cold tableau against a minimal set: a few desks, a couple of pieces of broken furniture, and a lot of crap. Occasionally, the dialogue between characters would seem coherent to the audience..."
"...Dear Editor, Why does The Austin Chronicle continue to ignore the Austin String Band Festival? It is a small festival of traditional music in October that has been held for the past seven years. It is an absolute jewel of a festival put together by an incredible music community that is essentially unknown to most of Austin..."
"...Desperately I searched for other sources, for a point of view that didn't make me want to set something on fire. I had missed The Austin Chronicle intensely when I discovered that NOLA's weekly equivalent didn't quite match up to the journalistic standards to which I had grown accustomed..."
"...Believers in free will that we are, the event is set up to stretch over three days and start from any of the locations listed: 4th Tap Brewing Cooperative, Adelbert's Brewery, Austin Beerworks, Austin Homebrew Supply, Celis Brewery, Circle Brewing Company, Fairweather Cider Co., and Oskar Blues Brewery. If sipping beer in a responsible and socially acceptable manner with the Chronicle and hundreds of self-proclaimed craft beer aficionados isn't enough to draw you, hear this: A portion of the proceeds benefits The Settlement Home for Children, a local nonprofit that serves children who have experienced severe emotional trauma, abuse, and neglect as a result of abusive and neglectful backgrounds..."
"...The 23rd annual Austin Chronicle Hot Sauce Festival was a helluva party. The cloud cover and pleasant breeze off the lake made the heat tolerable, and the great music, spicy foods, and cold beverages were available in abundance..."
"...Since I'd been involved in the sale and national release of Slacker, befriended Richard Linklater, and spent time in Austin, it was only natural that I became an avid reader of The Austin Chronicle. Apparently, the inside joke was that my avidity surpassed that of both local Austin readers and much of the paper's staff...."

"...That was just one of several "Chandlerisms" shared by participants in the first-ever Austin Chronicle Book Club, held on Twitter Monday, July 28. In discussing the 1953 crime fiction classic The Long Goodbye, talk turned to the author's memorable way with metaphors and similes, and readers chimed in with their favorite turns of phrase..."
"...Even when you consider that about a quarter of the 500 submissions The Austin Chronicle received for its 12th annual Short Story Contest were essentially suicide notes we can only hope that the singer is not the song in those cases, or at least that the notes have indeed been put to a healthier purpose that still leaves more than 350 stories angling for attention and distinction. Subtract a few more that might find a better a place among letters to the editor or somewhere in a (poorly rendered) alternate reality, and you're down to a more manageable 300..."
