Bonnie Bishop on Who She Is and Isn't
The singer’s new album and how she almost walked away from music
Music Story  December 1, 2016, by Abby Johnston
"...Bar eavesdroppers might have gotten an earful back in September when Bonnie Bishop recounted her music industry version of "I quit." The conversation had all of the hallmarks of a 100-proof confession you only share with strangers. Two UT grads at a near-empty Threadgill's World Headquarters, sipping margaritas and wondering how the hell the Longhorns – playing on the screen mounted in front of them – could be losing to Cal for the second year in a row, deepened their dialogue commensurate to their consumption of tequila...."

Bonnie Raitt & Mavis Staples: Americana Soul
First ladies of rhythm and blues tape ‘Austin City Limits’
DAILY Music  June 28, 2012, by Jim Caligiuri
"...Americana music is so dominated by men that last night’s Austin City Limits taping featuring Bonnie Raitt and Mavis Staples was as refreshing as it was celebratory. The range of styles and deep-seated emotions made it memorable, but also demonstrated why both women have been revered for so long...."

In an excerpt from Bobby Whitlock: A Rock 'n' Roll Autobiography, Delaney & Bonnie & Friends sow the seeds of Eric Clapton's Derek & the Dominos
Music Story  July 15, 2011, by Bobby Whitlock and Marc Roberty
"...Last Labor Day weekend at the Pedernales Recording Studio, Whitlock overdubbed finishing touches to "Got To Get Better in a Little While," from Derek & the Dominos' aborted second LP and now residing on March's deluxe Layla reissue. In his new memoir, A Rock 'n' Roll Autobiography (see review), the local legend remembers the Dominos' precursors, Delaney & Bonnie, whose frontman was later married to CoCo Carmel..."

The Living End
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose, and for the two HIV-positive men in The Living End, the existence of an unwelcome virus in their bodies is both...
Film Review  November 13, 1992, by Steve Davis
"...Director-screenwriter Araki taps into something very primal in the film's depiction of its two opposites that attract - the sedate Jon, a writer who lives his life according to the rules until he tests positive, and the seductive Luke, a hustler who takes him on an existential joyride that presses the envelope of so-called rational behavior. All comparisons to Bonnie and Clyde and Thelma & Louise aside, these lovers are thrown together by freak circumstance and divine providence: their seropositivity and what it might mean for them in the future..."

The Virgin Suicides
Young Cecilia Lisbon, her old eyes staring vacantly from a face still puffy with baby fat, lies on a hospital bed, the gashes in her wrists newly sutured. “What are...
Film Review  May 5, 2000, by Sarah Hepola
"...“You're not even old enough to know how bad life gets.” To which Cecilia flatly responds, “Obviously, doctor, you've never been a 13-year-old girl.” At the root of this shimmering, confident debut from director Sofia Coppola is a profound sympathy for what it means to be an adolescent - the unspeakable pain and forbidden lust, the mystery and morbidity of it all. The Virgin Suicides follows a year in the short lives of the blond, toothsome, and impossibly complicated Lisbon sisters --Cecilia, the youngest, is followed by Lux, then Bonnie, Mary, and the eldest Therese (I'm not giving away anything to say that their lives end sadly; much like American Beauty, their fate is sealed at the film's outset)..."

'From Silence to Power'
Bonnie Cox stages dances drawn from traumas to move through them
Arts Story  October 18, 2013, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Dancer-choreographer Bonnie Cox and I are trying, over the phone, to define "psychological trauma." "I see it as a spectrum," she says. Physical abuse and rape are discrete traumatic events, while psychological abuse and negative body image – any "experience or pressure that has taken a toll on the person," she suggests – result, over time, in a trauma not unlike post-traumatic stress disorder..."

Why Austin theatres are adding mixed drinks to the mix, offstage and on
Arts Story  July 5, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...In March, the Vortex – yes, the home to all those ritual-theatre spectacles and homegrown musicals about fairy-tale heroines, goddesses, and elementals – obtained a liquor license for its in-house lounge, the Butterfly Bar, and now you can sip a mojito or martini with your next cyberopera. Theatre founder and Producing Artistic Director Bonnie Cullum has been working toward this for several years, steadily upgrading what was originally a bare-bones lobby area into a cozy venue for enjoying libations..."

Arts Story  October 9, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...There was the Western carnival for the Rude Mechs' I've Never Been So Happy, with dozens of folks each night indulging their inner Ernest Tubbs at the country karaoke mic, getting their mops cropped by a bona fide Lone Star barber, having their "pitchers took" as Bonnie and Clyde, making crank calls to Yankees, and sipping margaritas, among other activities...."
