"...As the Museums Go, So Go Our Artists Across the street and one block south of AMOA-Downtown, Sue Graze, the exuberant director of Arthouse, can relate. When she came to town five years ago, after working for 10 years as a curator at the Dallas Museum of Art and two years as senior curator at the Miami Art Museum, she wasn't encouraged by what she saw...."

"...But those statistics don't tell the entire story. While women continued to lag far behind in venture capital dollars, the number of women-owned businesses surged ahead throughout the 1990s, to 9.1 million in 1999 -- up 103% from 13 years earlier..."

"...The director of under-graduate admissions at the University of Texas says a number of Texas high schools are exaggerating the top 10% of their graduating classes -- thereby granting more students automatic admission to UT and other Texas colleges and universities. "I suspect high schools are fudging," director Bruce Walker said in a recent interview, referring to House Bill 588, a 1997 law that automatically admits students in the top 10% of their high school graduating classes to UT, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and other state schools regardless of scores on college entrance exams...."
"...The latest unhappy target is 1997's HB 588, more popularly known as the "Top 10% Law." Under this nationally heralded response to the U.S. Supreme Court's limitations on racially based affirmative action, any student in a Texas high school who graduates in the top 10% of his or her high school class is automatically eligible for admission to any state college or university..."
"...Everywhere, pundits have been proclaiming 1999 as a good year for movies, citing the number of excellent films released during the past months and the ease of compiling Top 10 lists as evidence of the year's bounty. Here, the Chronicle's film reviewers add their voices to the national chorus..."
"...From Monica Loera's death to the nightmare that was our presidential election (and all the shit that happened in between), these 12 months tore at our hearts, spirits, and minds. But we had some shining spots thanks to our amazing community members who constantly work to make Austin and beyond better for us all (we're aware the list is longer than these two Top 10s, but here's a sampling). Top 10 Local Queer Heroes..."

"...Everything I know about rock & roll, I learned from Rodney Bingenheimer. OK, maybe not everything (my brother hit me with the Devo stick early on, and I understood that Elvis was cool from the womb onward), but Bingenheimer’s long-running Rodney on the Roq Top 10 column in the seminal SoCal punk zine Flipside dictated my musical tastes from the moment I first laid eyes on it, circa 1982..."
"...10. The Texas A&M Bonfire Collapsed..."
"...All three directors are such patent horror geeks that if it weren't for timeless popularity of the genre – little is ever certain outside of death, taxes, and evergreen cinematic purr of chainsaw lullabies – they'd probably be out doing something knifey to that postcoital couple down the block. But horror, unlike Lucio Fulci, lives and thrives in these tense times, and Dead Silence, while unlikely to make anybody's Top 10 list, is still a kicky exercise in spook-show atmospherics that manages to hit all the right notes while never quite coalescing into the Dario Argento-esque aria of creepiness it so clearly aspires to..."
"...As is his style, Godard's musings span a spectrum that goes from silly to visionary. This movie ranks with some of Godard's best work (it made several critics' “top 10” lists in 1992), but it probably requires some prior familiarity with Godard's previous films in order to recognize that fact...."

"...What was 2017's top movie? According to the Austin Film Critics Association, the honor is divided between Get Out and The Shape of Water: Jordan Peele's breakout socio-horror was voted the best film of the year, while Guillermo del Toro's Cold War fantasy heads up the AFCA Top 10 list, as compiled from the individual top 10 lists of the 37 members of the association. If that math leaves your head in a spin, just take it as a sign of the amazing strength and diversity of cinema in 2017...."

The consolidation of all media -- television, film, print -- left many forms of contemporary communication owned by giant, multinational corporations whose shareholders were too busy poring over this morning's Dow industrials to notice the exact same 10 faces being fisted up the public's you-know-what by their NASDAQ stock's NYC-based marketing firm..."

"...Take that, Savior! This draft has only one player – Calvin Johnson – in the “can’t miss” league. That is something for me to write, as I have never scouted a player, not even Peyton Manning, thought to be 100% “Death Proof.” After Johnson, we have five nice looking lads, about 10 guys I would like to have play for the Colts, and then around 200 players that could be drafted in the late first round to late fifth round depending on a team's hopes, dreams, and desires..."

"...Yes, Muldaur has a new album out. Almost unbelievably, it's her 40th in a career that’s seen her go from girl groups in her teens to jug bands and splitting off into almost any musical direction her voice took her, including Top 10 perennial “Midnight at the Oasis.”..."
"...I filed my Top 10 list this year, as every year, with a heavy sigh. Sure, I could number 10 movies that curled my toes, shout out a couple standout performances, and definitely wag a finger at a worst film..."
