Are You Experienced?
Why art that actively engages audiences is quintessentially Austin
Arts Story  October 9, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...These works asked us to be active, to step out of the temples of art and see it out in our world or take part in its creation ourselves. And they followed a host of like works from last season, projects that let us walk through buildings and spy dramas staged in different rooms (Vestige Group's Muses III: Memories of a House, Secondhand Theatre's Rooms, Displaced Theatre's Red Light Winter), to troop to a street corner to watch a scene play out (Hyde Park Theatre's Bombs in Your Mouth) or through Downtown to discover dancers wedged into the cityscape (Bodies in Urban Spaces), to imbibe during a show's built-in drinking game (Yellow Tape Construction Company's Warpstar Sexysquad), to type a love note and have it hand-delivered to a special someone anywhere in the city (Jaclyn Pryor's pink), to attach New Year's wishes to a 34-foot wooden clock and then see it burn to the ground (Community Art Makers' Resolution Clock at First Night Austin), and, in the grandest extreme of this kind of work to date, to choose from a list of handcrafted experiences and have one created personally and individually for you (Rubber Rep's The Casket of Passing Fancy)...."

Screens Story  July 5, 2013, by Monica Riese
"...But that's just the clinical knowledge. What about the culture of drinking? I like to think I've gotten it all figured out from watching TV and movies, but then again, I'm the kid who decided she'd learn to ski by reading a book and didn't understand why everyone was laughing when I ordered a Dr Pepper with a new phrase I'd learned – on the rocks – at age 6..."

Book This Gift, You Constant Reader
Kristi Coulter’s newest will slake your need-some-wisdom thirst
DAILY Arts  December 4, 2018, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...If you’d like to work a more oblique but also more insidious version of that activity into a few decades of your life, friend, do consider alcohol, won’t you? Drink it – via wine, whiskey, witbier, whatever – to dull the pain or diffuse the boredom of existence. Drink it to mitigate the numberless stressors of these multitasking days, drink it to fit in, drink it to tune out … just make sure that you keep on drinking it, for twenty or thirty years, until you start needing to drink it, pretty much constantly, or else you’re kind of fucked...."

Drinking Buddies
Mumblecore pro Joe Swanberg successfully ups his game by using professional actors in this observational drama.
Film Review  September 13, 2013, by Kimberley Jones
"...Joe Swanberg built his brand early on the novelty of naked bodies doing unglamorous things like shaving pubic hair and masturbating in the shower. He's still making small-scale, experiential films, but in Drinking Buddies, Swanberg's most polished film to date, his observational prowess has swerved away from shock value and sharpened: Here, a side eye can speak volumes...."

Lukas Moodysson gives us a captivating portrait of 13-year-old proto-punk girls in 1982 Sweden.
Film Review  June 13, 2014, by Kimberley Jones
"...Not a lot of movies get made about what it’s like to be a 13-year-old girl, something We Are the Best! off-handedly acknowledges at its start – an overlapping din of adults prattling on about politics and divorce. The occasion is a 40-year-old’s birthday celebration, set at a Stockholm apartment overstuffed with adults drinking wine, dancing, and gossiping like teenagers..."

Shut Up! Listen to Me! I Know and You Don't
Postmarks  April 12, 2006
"... How dare you chastise the Arab League [“The Rhythm of Peace,” News, March 24]. What do you know about peace marches? Do you show up every year and write your little column to make yourself feel better, or do you fight the good fight everyday? Have you put your life on the line for the truth, or is it just easier to attack those that have? And when did you become the goddess of peace protests, anyway? Who gave you the right to say how anyone should peacefully protest the great Halliburton war? Bush, the neocon, or did you just anoint yourself? You should have chastised the rest of the musicians from Austin for not showing up to the Million Musician March, but instead you attacked the Arab League for fighting the good fight with freedom of expression and as they would say, “dope beats.” I love the fact that the artsy-fartsy, latte-drinking Austin Chronicle loves to act as though it is out there on the edge, pushing the envelope, in an effort to better the world..."

"...The same idea holds true for contemporary American culture: Think of how Snooki and her comrades have become the symbol of New Jersey-ness (despite the fact that most of them aren't even from New Jersey and that there are plenty of perfectly nice people with appropriate personal boundaries and tasteful sartorial sense who hail from there) or how farmers' markets have become emblematic of a romanticized urban vision of relationship-based agriculture. In reality, Barthes might say, Snooki is just a trashy girl with bad hair and a drinking problem, and the farmers' market is just another place to buy food..."
