City of the Dead
Journeying through the graves of Austin's oldest cemetery
News Story  April 21, 2006, by Cheryl Smith
"...In 1914, the city built a vault for holding bodies inside the cemetery's little, wooden mortuary chapel. The storage space was much needed, as graves were dug by hand, taking hours of time and effort and making it impossible to put a body six feet underground efficiently..."

Years of the Dead
The Mexico of now, David Garza writes, is not held only within the borders of Mexico itself. It has spread northward, re-entered its old space, in a sense. For so many of the Mexicans, displaced but still infatuated with the idea of spirit and ghost, the nation itself is a ghost in the back of the head.
Books Story  October 27, 2000, by David Garza
"...The Mexico of now, therefore, is not held only within the borders of Mexico itself. It has spread northward, re-entered its old space, in a sense..."

Music Story  September 12, 2003, by Melanie Haupt
"...With the band's rootsy Nick Cave aesthetic, the disc is dark and spare, the lyrics often violent. The Austin quartet explores the pained space that separates two people, whether between estranged lovers or a dying parent and grieving child..."

The Dead Are Speaking with the Tongues of the Living?
Yes, and it's all because of those creepy Blackbower Mediums
DAILY Arts  November 1, 2012, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Towery grins, and it's a grin that seems tinged with a bit of … happy malice? "In this show," he says, "audience members enter the space as initiates and take part in the process, guiding the spirits to the mediums. It's through each night's audience that the mediums channel these dark, ghostly tales of the dead..."

The Pink Panther
In this pointless rehash of the 1964 Blake Edwards film that introduced Inspector Clouseau to the world, Steve Martin inhabits the role of the bumbling French detective without a trace of the comic genius of Peter Sellers.

Film Review  February 10, 2006, by Steve Davis
"...The casting of Knowles also underscores the fact that this incarnation of The Pink Panther has more in common with the Austin Powers series than anything in which Sellers and Edwards ever collaborated. (There's even a flatulence joke here, no doubt in deference to the snaggle-toothed British secret agent's brand of humor.) Director Levy, who foisted another lousy Martin remake upon the American public (Cheaper by the Dozen), is completely inept when it comes to comic pacing; the dead space between the film's feeble attempts at humor acts like a vacuum, completely sucking up every possible laugh, titter, and guffaw that might follow..."

The Graceful Dead

Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith
Veering from moments of breathtakingly visualized valor to outright stupidity, Sith is a vast improvement over the previous two outings, but still and all, it’s no Star Wars.

Film Review  May 20, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...Jackson, Christopher Lee, Jimmy Smits, Anthony Daniels, Temuera Morrison, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew. There’s a wonderful running gag in the BritCom Spaced, which, should you be so unlucky to have not yet caught an episode, features tow-headed Simon Pegg (of Shaun of the Dead) as Tim Bisley, a down-on-his-luck twentysomething film and comic-book geek whose life is continually overshadowed by the supposed betrayal wrought upon it by George Lucas’ disastrous handling of The Phantom Menace..."

The Good Eye: The Pulse
The Good Eye says goodbye
Columns  April 2, 2015, by Amy Gentry
"...That's because film doesn't just preserve the afterimage of bodies in space, delivering to viewers the distant, long-stilled vibrations of dead girls who are now really dead, black actresses who played maids in the first 50 years of American film, Native Americans who played savages in John Ford movies. Film can enter the body of the viewer..."

Page Two: Tonight's the Night
Moving forward into the fog of SXSW
Columns  March 17, 2006, by Louis Black
"...The opening line of Henry Miller's Tropic of Capricorn explains it. The line goes something like: "Once you've given up hope all else follows with dead certainty, even in the midst of chaos." I waddle along during the beginning days of SXSW, bitching and complaining, until at a certain point I enter into the flow and "all else follows with dead certainty even in the midst of chaos." "Dead certainty" doesn't suggest that I either know or am prepared for what is coming; it is more along the lines of knowing that, while I'm floating in the timeless space of SXSW, boulders will come flying at me from every direction – some launched as weapons, many just free-falling in space...."

Film Review  May 7, 1999, by Marc Savlov
"...While the studio's other series feature the man-as-god morality plays of Victor Frankenstein or the baleful, cursed legacy of poor Larry Talbot -- The Wolf Man -- or even the scaly, lovestruck aquatics of The Creature From the Black Lagoon, Universal's Mummy, while pleasantly chilling, was regarded by many as a bit of a bore. Imagine: Bullets won't stop it, but hey, you can always walk faster, right? This ambitious updating by Stephen Sommers (who also helmed the superlative, woefully underseen Deep Rising) makes amends for all that by turning the franchise into an Indiana Jones-style period adventure piece, and while this version suffers from trying to pack too much into too small a space, it's nevertheless a grandly silly outing, filled with Fraser's derring-do, maidens in need of rescuing, foul villains, and the (literally) timeless love story between Pharaoh's wayward priest Imhotep (played this time out by Vosloo of Hard Target and the Darkman series) and his lost love Anck Su Namun..."

Film Review  July 9, 2004, by Kimberley Jones
"...Occasionally, their shaggy, slapdash approach results in some riotously funny moments, anarchic and inspired, but more often it just feels like desperate flailing for a laugh. The laughs are there, all right, but there’s an awful buzzing noise in between them, dead space and seat-squirming as we wait for someone to bring the funny..."

Godzilla vs. the Green Screen
Austin special effects artists can kill you with a squib or with a CGI bullet hit, gore it up with pig entrails or digitally composited blood, and create just about anything you can imagine with their bare hands or software. Does the industry need both?

Kember, also known as Sonic Boom, had flown in from England to perform the previous night as Experimental Audio Research, and his mysterious live electronic circuitry conjured otherworldly tones that elevated this performance into the stratosphere...."

The Keepers of Your Silence II
Letters at 3 AM
Columns  August 7, 1998, by Michael Ventura
"...What utterance, what hint, what insinuation, can quiet a room of family or friends? What makes people change the subject? What makes for guilty laughter? What makes those at a dinner party dismiss a remark as though it wasn't said, or dismiss a person as though he or she wasn't really there? We've all seen conversations suddenly go dead, and just as suddenly divert around a particular person or subject, leaving them behind in the dead space, because something has been said or implied that skirts a silently shared taboo. If that happens to you often, don't kid yourself that you're living in a "free" society..."

"...Next time you walk into the Texas Union, try imagining a spacious gathering place, instead of the obstructed warren that is actually there.

"...In fact, if there's one disappointment about this disc, it's that it's so spartan and extras-free. On the commentary track, Zombie says there were longer versions of a swathe of scenes, so why not include them?

The Spirit of Improvisation
Music Story  November 20, 1998, by Christopher Hess
"...Alone at the front of the stage for the half-hour of uninterrupted Blue Construct, watched by the dozen or so who still remained, two young women of the long-haired, sinewy neo-hippie sort danced and lunged and swayed to the slow and syncopated beat of pianist Carl Settles & company. And when Smith returned and commandeered the keyboard for well over an hour, soon accompanied by his drummer Wilson, the scattered remnants of the early-evening crowd resurfaced from every hidden corner of the Mercury to join the two, filling in the empty space by dancing with that same bubble-popping free-form posture and groove that screamed, "Yes! I love the Grateful Dead!"..."

"...Heuring for being named #64 on Maxim's Hot 100 List, but, aside from a wounded sneer she wears throughout the film, she remains almost entirely expressionless and/or emotionless. It isn't the best quality in a leading lady, to be sure, but one can hardly blame her if her heart wasn't in this cinematic waste of space..."

"...Is his conscience driving him mad or is there really some supernatural force at work? It doesn't matter to Fernández Armero, who keeps piling up the bodies and the austere, minimalist production design. The spare look of the settings is likely a nod to the Argento school of interior design, which always adds a dollop of grue to any undecorated wall space, and one shot -- of a menacing figure backlit by a flaming doorway -- is straight out of Friday the 13th..."

Film Review  April 12, 1996, by Joey O'Bryan
"...Love in the Time of Twilight is a much busier, kinetic piece of work, stylistically falling somewhere in between Shanghai Blues and Chinese Ghost Story in the thematic landscape of Hark's filmography, although this movie is certainly inferior to these other classics. The plot, nearly impossible to describe in so short a space, is a lively jumble of cute romantic comedy, Back to the Future-inspired time-travel excitement, and a surreal, special-effects-driven gagfest: Yeung and Wu portray a pair of mischievous youngsters who are looking for love and become bitter rivals following a series of disastrous run-ins and misunderstandings..."
