The Song Remains the Same
Led Zeppelin reunion boot
DAILY Music  February 13, 2008, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Jimmy Page could crack open terra firma one night, then the band would sputter like a Studebaker the next. My lovingly illicited new $28 DVD, 126 reunion minutes in London’s O2 Arena last December 10, hasn’t changed the tune. Practically shot from atop the flagpole crowning the 20,000-plus seater, Zeppelin’s return to this mortal plane – in this case – initially testifies to (ahem) documentarian resolve, the zoom capabilities of this particularly eye in the sky, and judicious use of the next fellow’s shaggy head as a shield from view..."

March of the Flower Children
The last interview with Seeds frontman and oh-so-brief psychedelic Austinite Sky Sunlight Saxon
Music Story  July 24, 2009, by Austin Powell
"...With perfect poise, Sky Saxon sits cross-legged atop a bed of brown and gold silk sheets in his living room. Unpacked boxes surround him, only heightening the sense of physical disconnect permeating the rustic, South Austin home he recently leased..."

Paradise Sky and The Best I Recall head a list of stellar Lone Star books
Arts Story  December 31, 2015, by Joe O'Connell

Flight of the Innocent
Ten-year-old Vito (Colao) lives in Calabria, in southern Italy, a place where the sun bakes sleepy villages populated by farmers, sheepherds, and kidnappers. His family is one of those who...
Film Review  January 28, 1994, by Marc Savlov
"...From the beginning, it's understood that this young boy is consciously attempting to break free from the chains of a horrible familial tradition. Instead of thinking about kidnapping and the like, he lies on the ground, staring up into the sky, and daydreams about being a hawk, soaring into the blue..."

Let the Right One In
This multi-award-winning Swedish film might be summarized as a vampire tween romance, but that cheap and tawdry sum-up does zero justice to the magnificent emotional resonance of this gem. A discussion of the adaptation follows the film.
Film Review  November 14, 2008, by Marc Savlov
"...It's creepy in the same way that a youngster's first stirrings of adolescent desire are creepy – both to them and often more so to their elders – when strange attractors come into play and everything seems frighteningly freighted with the surreal, the mysterious, the forbidden. Hedebrant, in one of the film's two remarkable, standout performances, plays 12-year-old Oskar, a blond wisp of a boy who is as shy as the blue sky in a Stockholm winterscape..."

Sky Fall
Bradley Wiggins 86'ed from Sky Tour de France team
DAILY Sports  June 9, 2014, by Larysa Pachulski
"..."I think it's pretty obvious that if I couldn't do the Tour this year, then next year,” Wiggins told an interviewer last week. “If I want to do the Tour, I'll probably have to leave Sky.”..."

Vanilla Sky
When I first heard that Cameron Crowe was planning a remake of Alejandro Amenábar's 1997 film Abre los Ojos (Open Your Eyes), I thought it was an odd choice for...
Film Review  December 14, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...Most obvious to fans of the original, and not at all surprising considering Crowe's consistently rock & roll overtones, is the replacement of the original's traditional orchestral score with a non-stop barrage of pop tunes and rockers that runs the gamut from Sir Paul McCartney to Radiohead, and from the Beach Boys to Spiritualized. There's barely a quiet moment in Vanilla Sky that isn't interrupted -- and often manhandled -- by a sudden sonic outburst from the Dolbys..."

Christmas in the Clouds
This Native American romantic comedy, which won the Audience Award at the 2001 Austin Film Festival, arrives in theatres four years late but seasonally right on time.
Film Review  December 2, 2005, by Kimberley Jones
"...And what window-dressing – when Mother Nature finally cooperates with a blanket of white over mountain vistas in Utah, the effect, lensed by Steven Bernstein, is breathtaking. The resort, too, is something to behold: The film was shot on location at the Sundance Resort, here called the Sky Mountain Resort..."

The Power of Art in Austin’s Overlooked Objects
Defining the city's personality from the moonlight towers to the railroad bridge
Arts Story  August 4, 2016, by Sam Anderson-Ramos
"...The shinier it is, the less I tend to like it. Like most of Austin – especially those of us who live outside the city center – I probably can't afford to enjoy it anyway, so what do I care? But that skyline sure looks pretty on postcards and websites..."

Sacred & Profane: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
Two full nights of damnation, retribution, and inner demons
DAILY Music  July 21, 2014, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Marionette arms dangling during Jaggeresque scarecrow jolts and punctuated by Iggy Pop-like Spiderman stomps, Cave would summon his best croon then bolt to the piano before unleashing the Bad Seeds’ full roar, which rose in a hellish crescendo for “Jubilee Street,” from last year’s quietly commanding Push the Sky Away. Early blasphemy “Tupelo” repeated the process, as did “Red Right Hand” afterward..."

What Are the Birds Telling Us About Climate Change?
Reading the signs from our friends up in the sky
News Story  February 22, 2018, by Melany Jean
"...Jane Tillman, a master naturalist and one such birder, will often break mid-sentence, mid-phrase, even mid-word, at the sight or sound of a bird. When this happens, she may abruptly lean back, hand shoved into her back pocket to brace herself, as she points her hat brim to the sky and scans for what she has just heard or sighted...."

The Eagle Huntress
Real-life heroine soars above tradition
Film Review  November 23, 2016, by Steve Davis
"...Girl power takes flight in this upbeat documentary about a 13-year-old Kazakh girl in the remote Altai Mountains who flouts centuries of tradition to become the first female eagle hunter in her family. It’s a kick to watch the guileless Aisholpan and her soaring companion break through the sky-blue glass ceiling of northern Asia to claim her own birthright in this family-oriented film with a post-feminist bent..."

Features Story  August 16, 2018, by Sybil Rosen

The New Rites of Spring
The Last Word in Instrumental Rock
Music Story  April 27, 2001, by Michael Chamy
"...It's an overly romanticized notion, the idea of every generation having some sort of defining musical moment, like Jimi Hendrix deconstructing the "Star-Spangled Banner" at Woodstock, Johnny Rotten singing "No Fun" at the Winterland, or perhaps Igor Stravinsky inciting a riot with his boisterous Rite of Spring at Paris' Champs-...lysées Theatre in 1913...."

"Keith Carter: Notes on the Universe" at Stephen L. Clark Gallery
This solo exhibition shows the photographer in pursuit of whatever unseen cosmic force animates us
Arts Review  December 28, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...The hound's head is tilted toward the sky and, judging by the shaggy fur flying up and away from its snout, into the wind. In the photograph, something about its gaze appears fixed, as if the animal has the scent of something carried on that current of air, some mystery it must suss out..."

Page Two: The Sky Is Always Falling
The hyping of catastrophe, and a notable loss
Columns  December 10, 2010, by Louis Black
"...Obviously, there are major problems facing this country, as well as issues on which the public is divided – sometimes so militantly divided that no reconciliation seems possible. Not to whitewash anything, but the only problem with the multiple "the sky is falling" crowds is that there is nothing new or unique about this situation..."

Star Wars: The Clone Wars
The only important things in this new animated epic is that viewers be blown away by the endless and pointless laser battles and that girl power comes into its own.
Film Review  August 15, 2008, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...(It squeals! It texts! It shops! It consumes everything it sees!) In our new tween-dominated star economy, with Miley Cyrus and other Disney Channel starlets printing money, I suppose it was inevitable that the shamelessly market-savvy Lucas would seize an opportunity to do the same. Enter Ahsoka Tano, a sassy young Padawan, or apprentice Jedi, who arrives (looking like a chorus member from The Lion King stage show) to study under the future Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker, who’s busy leading the clone armies of the Republic against the droid armies of the evil Separatists while trying to secure the safe return of gangster Jabba the Hutt’s infant son, who was kidnapped by Separatist leader and Jedi-gone-spoiled Count Dooku in an attempt to frame the Jedi and convince Jabba to open his trade routes to the Separatist army, thereby clearing the way for total galactic domination … not that any of that matters..."

The Truman Show
Life is a 'round-the-clock “reality” TV program in this prescient film, and Truman Burbank (Carrey) is its unwitting subject/hero/leading man.
Film Review  June 5, 1998, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...It has too many loose ends and too many logically unexplained phenomena that can only be rationalized away with generalizations about the all-encompassing control that typifies the Seahaven production. Why is it that after 30 years in Seahaven, Truman is only now noticing Klieg lights that fall from the sky and weather patterns that follow his precise footsteps? Is Seahaven breaking down something like a Mir space shuttle that's been in orbit too long? Also, for all the talk of Carrey's toned-down dramatic performance here, it is, though serviceable, still awfully broad and hammy (as is Linney's, yet as Truman's wife it should be said that she's always aware that she's playing to a hidden camera)..."

Son of the Circus
Twistin' in the Wind
Music Story  October 2, 1998, by Raoul Hernandez
"..."No matter where I am, I'm still thinking about some long stretch of dirt road with nothing but fence posts and sky. I can be in downtown Manhattan and be writing, and that's where I always come back to...."

“Fool’s Romance / Books From Aeromoto” at the UT VAC
The interactivity of Aeromoto’s installation seizes the spirit of collective action seen in the response to the Mexico City earthquake
Arts Review  October 5, 2017, by Melany Jean
"...Its playful, interactive approach in doing so reminds me of Yoko Ono's instruction paintings, which similarly broach the distance between the conceptual and the material. Her PAINTING FOR THE SKIES instructs: "Drill a hole in the sky..."

Point Austin: Back to the Future
GOP officials take opportunity to demagogue on heels of Obama clean air plan announcement
News Column  August 6, 2015, by Michael King
"...Paxton's announcement was also self-contradictory: "Texas has demonstrated that it can clean its air without destroying the energy sector," going on to note that nitrogen oxide and ozone levels have declined even as the economy has boomed. He neglected to mention that the primary reason our air is less polluted is government regulation, especially federal – despite reflexive doom-and-gloom predictions from official and industrial quarters, as the state's air quality improved, the economic sky remained in place, and in fact Texas flourished. The Sky Won't Fall..."

The Great Gig in the Sky
The best albums of our lives – and the afterlife
Music Story  December 31, 2014, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Unless you're The New York Times, summating a life normally happens after someone's death, so this rare instance of prior knowledge left me numb – uncomprehending. One of Austin's most spirited musicians, adopted organist of two decades, was this very moment loading up his gear for the great gig in the sky...."

'How Wild the Sea'
Pulitzer Prize winner Kevin Puts brings waves into the concert hall with new symphonic work
Arts Story  November 29, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...Since winning the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Music for his opera Silent Night, based on the famous Christmas Eve truce between enemy soldiers on a World War I battlefield, Puts has gained international stature, but that doesn't mean he's a stranger to his old home in the heart of Texas. Last fall, he was in town for the premiere of two choral works commissioned by Conspirare, "If I Were a Swan" and To Touch the Sky..."

Getting the Joke
Comedy isn't the funny business it was in the Eighties, what with fewer clubs and audiences burned out by comedy on cable and hack comics. Seven Austin comics discuss the current state of stand-up in a round-table discussion.

"...Mark Fradl is a veteran touring comic who moved to Austin about a year ago, quit doing stand-up, and is now devoting himself to writing and making short films. Chris Fairbanks is a young comic who recently left Big Sky country in Montana to join Austin's comedy circle..."

The Reverse Crossover of La Mafia
The Empire Builders
Music Story  October 27, 1995
"...Arriving by bus ride from Matamoros, I inquired on the whereabouts of the Nuevo Laredo Fairgrounds. Two short "pesera" rides brought me to a flat, circular, open-air stadium as the five or six opening acts unloaded equipment. Overhead the sky went gradually grey, matching the asphalt underfoot. Approaching a musician with one of the opening bands, I asked when La Mafia would show..."

T he Sisyphus bond committee just rolled the stone up the hill – be ready to duck
News Column  January 20, 2006, by Michael King
"...Those were only the most high-profile debates, and I haven't even returned to 130. The committee objected, reasonably enough, that in the last weeks they were asked to toss 130-related projects into the mix when those did not figure into the city's own needs assessment, and indeed were not even specifically described in any of the late-breaking, blue-sky requests for same..."

The Best-Case Scenario
After years of work, Envision Central Texas goes majorly public.
News Story  October 24, 2003, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Too often, such efforts to bring everyone from everywhere to the table and keep them there -- and to keep an organization like ECT above the fray, rather than a new venue for the same old clashes of the same old agendas -- end up producing consensus on the color of the sky and of the grass, but on very little else. Yet despite taking diplomatic care to, for example, downplay the notion that any of the four scenarios -- even Scenario A, which extrapolates present trends into a sprawl-filled future -- is better than another, ECT's work and output make clear that not only do we need a vision that we currently don't have, but that such a vision needs to be significantly different from the status quo...."

DAILY Arts  October 5, 2016, by Spencer Beghtol

Then Katie kind of dropped from the sky and messaged Devon [about taking over the show].” Walker chimes in, saying, “She approached me a couple of weeks back and I said, ‘I’ll only do it if I can bring Allison O’Conor on.’ That was my one hard rule.”..."

"...Then there's the magnificent tattoo artistry by the late but still legendary ink-slinger Michael Malone, aka Rollo Banks, formerly of Austin's China Sea Tattoo (see "TCB," April 27), that covers Hughes' entire back, legs, and arms. Done in classical Japanese style, it depicts a sinewy all-star lineup of the Toho Co.'s biggest box-office breadwinners, namely Godzilla, King of the Monsters, posed midroar, batting planes out of the sky, as Mothra and daikaiju galore roil across Hughes' broad back...."

Of course, he speaks, too, and on one of his many whirlwind trips to Austin -- this one as the architect was completing the final design for the AMOA building -- Gluckman took a few minutes to discuss this project, his approach to architecture, and what it means to design buildings for a boomtown...."

News Story  September 4, 1998, by Mike Clark-Madison
"..."In the end, the vision and the reality are intact; that we can have an Austin-style natural creekway and still have the development we want and need," says Lorenz. "While we'll have to tolerate up to a 25-year flood event, it's not the end of the world and the sky is not falling." By "natural," Lorenz means not a nature trail per se, but a "soft edge" between people and creek, as opposed to the "choked-off concrete ditch" suggested by the Trias renderings...."
