"...He believes people are too hung up about natural body odors. That might be true, but the bottom line is that he smells almost all of the time and this makes me not want to be physically intimate with him..."
"...Consider the University of Florida where in the offseason football player Brandon James and basketball player Brandon Powell were arrested after reportedly buying marijuana from an undercover police officer. Last April offensive lineman Ronnie Matthew Wilson was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, simple battery and use or display of a concealed weapon during the commission of a felony..."
"...It's a race against time with the fate of the entire San Francisco population hanging in the balance, and a remarkably swift two-and-a-half-hours in the bargain. Director Bay has streamlined his action-movie chops since Bad Boys -- The Rock moves along at roughly the same speed as a Six Flags roller coaster, barely pausing to set up the initial story line and then refusing to even pause for breath, cramming in enough stylized angles, breakneck editing, and nail-eradicating excitement to give Jan de Bont a run for his money..."
"...In 2008, she was arrested in front of the White House. By 2011, she was inside, meeting with President Obama to discuss the Keysone XL pipeline..."
"..."You are allowed take all the pictures you want, ma'am. You just cannot cross that line." That bright orange line of boom? "The line of sand." That 3-foot high sandy berm? The berm..."

"..."No one wants an officer not to consider the circumstance," he said. Even Charlie Ortiz's explanation of the department's pursuit policy reflects this shift in thinking: "Pursuits [used to be] undisciplined relative to today," he said..."
"...Since that May night, Capece has had to deal with the psychological and emotional aftereffects, as well as a legal whirlwind. Her journey to the courtroom was anything but direct, and her lawsuit has raised larger questions about corporate responsibility and companies that woo employees to the fast-paced high tech environment with promises of hard work, quick money, and fast times -- intentionally blurring the line between business and pleasure..."
"...I had discovered a second major peril of working at home. Aside from mind-numbing loneliness, there is the endless cycle of domestic chores, which are no sooner finished than they have to be done again..."
"...As Reeder (Bush's Brain) presents the cast with add-ons to the shot list, Test Prep Guy's modest lounge area is converted to an office: a desk brought in, a computer set up, binders and blotters and Post-Its strategically assembled. The room is illuminated with a Chinese lantern for fill light and plastered with K-Line Dulling Spray..."
"...Receivers are sold separately, including a variety of sat-radio receivers for use in the car, at home, or with a sat-radio-ready boom box. XM's line includes the Delphi SkyFi 2 (about $130), the only receiver with "pause" and "replay" functions, and the new Delphi XM MyFi, the first battery-pack operated handheld receiver ($350)..."
"...Abels didn't delete the post but revised it to add: "Honestly I don't know anyone involved so I can't say what's true and what's not but most of what's on this page is bullshit anyways, so don't sweat it too bad James. As that old book says, 'The truth shall set you free.' Would the poster of the deleted [Craigslist] entry care to let me know the motivation behind this allegation? If so drop me a line..."
"...Footage from shows in Washington, D.C.; New York City; and around Austin made the cut both visually and sonically; a supplementary live album gets the CD-release treatment this Friday at the Continental Club. "Just like when you read between the lines, there's a lot of stuff that's not even talked still there," says Graham..."
"...I rode in one of them with about a dozen police officers and National Guard soldiers. There were downed power lines everywhere, across every block, it seemed..."
"...A torrential downpour forces the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) to start releasing water from the lakes, flooding areas along lakes Travis and Austin, as well as Town Lake, while Austin's creeks overflow their banks. The temperature drops sharply as the wind gusts up to 20-30 miles per hour, tearing power and telephone lines from their poles..."
"...Turning on the siren, Hart looks back through the small window that separates the cab from the vehicle's mobile emergency room, and grins. "We go in quick, buddy," he says, "tag and bag 'em." There's just enough light to see the adrenaline glint in his eyes...."
"...After months of speculation over whether Shade would face a viable opponent – and before the email headlines, it looked unlikely – she now faces two. Challenger Kathie Tovo, tested in the world of neighborhood politics (as a leader of the Bouldin Creek Neighborhood Association and the Austin Neighborhoods Council as well as a planning commissioner), has also been intimately involved with a current hot issue – public schools – having advocated against school closures on the Austin Independent School District's Facility Master Plan Task Force..."
"...Less than 10 months after releasing his melancholic magnum opus, My Life in Steel and Concrete, emotionally intense songwriter Quin Galavis returns with The Battery Line, his personal pop apex. Don’t worry, it’s not as uplifting as it sounds...."
"...A dead-eyed visage staring out grimly from the cover of last year's triumphant double album My Life in Steel and Concrete quick-sketched an instant portrait of Quin Galavis, Dead Space/False Idol member and young, tortured artist. The Battery Line opener "Garden Wall" churns grimier than anything on Steel and Concrete or the lo-fi twang of solo bow Should Have Known You in 2011, dirty guitars punctuated by fuzz bursts that quickly indulge a Nineties alt-rock manic depression built on a muted, minor key verse with a louder, major key chorus..."
"...Around dusk on Tuesday, Oct. 23, a line of humanity snakes down Nueces Street, waiting for the Austin Music Hall's doors to open..."
